This week Ihe July issues of the magazines came, which is always a signal for me to go on a reading binge. There was more lime than usual to indulge this vice for I spent one day shop- sitting, minding the telephone while the office girl was gone and being blissfully ignorant of Iheir bookkeeping system there was little else to do but read. And now I can start complaining that I don't havc-jr thing in the house to read. Grandmothers are mentioned several times in the current issues and though these are all famous grandmothers they aren't too much different from the ordinary variety. Anyway, every grandmother is famous — at least to her own grandchildren » * * Grandmother BeiJy McDonald has an article in Good Housekeeping, entitled, "All The Joys" and she says, "I guess most of us foolish grandmothers have said at some time, The thing that is so wonderful about being a grandmother is that you have all the joy and none of the bore of raising children.' I thought of this with some bitterness as I watched the sun rise this morning." The reason for this change in Betty's attitude is that her 3 small grandchildren were staying with her while their mother was ill and they were running her ragged night and day. In true McDonald style she injects a lot of humor into the story of her trials and though she's still craxy about her grandchildren she says "God certainly knows what He is doing when He gives young children to the young" • * » Grandmother Elizabeth, Queen Mother of England is mentioned in Coronet. Her trouble, unlike Betty McDonald's, is that she is prevented by the blueness of her blood from 'getting real intimate with her grandchildren. The article tries to make her grandchild. Prince Charles, Heir Apparent, sound like a normal six year old but I can't help feeling lorry for both ot them. The Prince enjoys candy, but he must never be seen with a piece in his mouth. On one occasion when he was caught, he removed the candy hurriedly and thrust it, still sticky, into the gloved hand of the Queen Mother. "Please hold that for me. Grannie", he said. Charles is boistrous in private, the article says, but he has learned to be unobtrusive before a crowd and must never, in public, run shouting to gceet his grandmother. How would you grand- mothers like it if your little dar- ings were forbidden to climb all over you when saying, hello? Charles sees his granny by appointment only — at "half past ten and not a minute before." * * * The Readers Digest, in an article condensed from Life, credits a grandmother from keeping the Ford Motor Company from going broke. Or for part of the operation, anyway. Henry Ford II had to have his grandfather's approval for an entirely new method of cost accounting and Ihe old gentlemen, Henry I wa» bedfast, ill and greatly under the influence of a character called Harry B e n e 11. Grandmother. Clara Ford and grandson talked at length, she interceded for him, and after a while young Henry had its authorization. The company reformed, stopped losing money and under the new management are off and on to new heights. * * * Marceline Cox in her Ask Any Woman feature in the Ladies Home Journal says, "Parenthood: when you can use the experience you haven't had. Grandparent- hood when you can't use the experience you've had." Our local boy who made good in the big time literary fields, Richard Sherman, is in a bit of hot water over a story of his that appeared in the June Good Housekeeping. The story, "The Life of Two Parties" was about a reformed alcholic. brilliantly written as are all Mr Sherman's stories. The story has a bitter end, however and I would not have liked it if it hadn't been written by somebody who once lived in Algona." In the July issue, a woman, the wife of an alcoholic in real life, takes issue with the story, the author, the magazine and the present lack of responsibility of the press and in her case I can't blame her. The Editors say, "We think he, (Richard Sherman) is one of the two or three best story writers in America and we would publish the story all over again, given the opportunity. We would alsu publish again tins letter," * » * Cosmopolitan has a question and answer deal about Worry. It says people worry most about money and success—this kind of worry is more prevalent than the common cold. Women worry about their weight and appear- flnce, t iheir family and their marriage.' Men worry about their virility, their hair, prestige, meeting bills and their career. How to stop worrying? One way is THESE WOMEN! "I TOLD you it was too nice a day to go to the beach!" to live one day at a time, and each twenty-four hour period to its fullest. But I still think four or five thousand extra dollars in the bank would be a big help. * * tf We had a nice weekend trip to Woman's Lake. Father had a part to in.-tall on Earl Miller's cottage up there so the kids the dog and I rode along to keep him company. The cottage is beautiful. It's hard to believe that the 1 o c a 1 workmen accomplished so much in just one week an"i still had a little time for fun. We saw the pair of eagles Daddy told us about—they were'in their nest in a tall tree—-and we brought home a batch of turtle eggs to see if they'd hatch in our .-ami-pile. And we all got sunburned Sam and Rose Medin have a cottage within sight "f the one we stayed in and the Ray Bearnish's were staying m their cottage. We saw Borghild and Lloyd Robinson getting into a boat but we didn't get to talk with them We also met some people named Collins from Swea City. When Mrs Earl Miller arrived at the cottage she was hungry. It was almost eleven o'clock when they got to Bramerd and knowing that the Rev. Kittrell formerly of the First Baptist church here, was pleaching, decided to stop off for the worship service. While Mrs Millei and daughter. Marilyn were in church, son. Marvin and his friend, Tom Potter were asked te- pick up a couple of hamburgeis for them to save time. Back on the highway again, Mrs Miller and Marilyn unwrapped the sandwiches. The buns were neatly sliced, they were well buttered, there was a slice of tomato and a leaf of lettuce but not a single speck of hamburger was in either bun' Ana Mrs Miller had just declined an invitation from the Rev. and Mrs Kittrell to stay to Sunday dinner. * * * A couple of years ago Mrs W. M. Giddings of Kern-inn. Calif, sent me a saucepan brownie recipe 1 that has been a favorite o! ours ever since. The texture of the finished product is just i ight but best of all they are ea-y to make and take ^< little dish washing.
