The clothes have to be washed and ironed at the last minute for our wardrobes aren't extensive enough to cover more than a few days. There's shopping to be done and equipment to be lined up. The list grows longer each year —right now we plan to take, a motor for the boat, a pressure cooker, Mamma's typewriter, Bill's skin diving outfit, the ice chest for fish, a half ham destined to end up as bean soup,,a stack of books and magazines, the girls' dolls, and a collection of games for rainy days. I hope we have room for the kids. * » * I'm rtol planning on doing any extra cooking this week, but I do have a recipe for you. Lorraine Guzowski phoned recently to ask if I had a recipe for pickled beans. I didn't have one then, but I do now. It's for Dilly Beans and they are crisp, easy and need no cooking. 4 pints whole green beans . l k tsp. red pepper, 1 clove garlic, 1 head dill for each jar. 2 cups cider vinegar 2 cups water "4 cup salt Pack the washed, stemmed green beans in hot sterilized jars.

Sargent & Co "Makers of Famous Sargent Feeds" This week there arrived in the mail, a letter from Betty Vinson of Rock Rapids. I was doubly pleased to receive it—first, because I had been wondering What ever had become of Betty and second, because the letter con- lained, as her missives usually do, some helpful suggestions for the column. * * « "Why don't you re-run some of your columns by popular demand", writes Betty. "Like rerun television shows—'The Best of Grace', of, 'The Summer Days (Daze) of Grace'." Then Betty enclosed, and I still don't know if she did it on purpose, a clipping entitled, "Loafing To Stay Healthy Is One Fascinating Idea." • • • Now, I don't have to be hit over the head to recognize a good idea when I see one, and in my case a "popular demand" can consist of just one reader. At our house we are frantically packing lo go on our vacation, so re-running a column is a most welcome idea. And, '.'traveling with children" should be a most appropriate subject for that's just what we'll be doing. « •* The saying, "He travels fastest who travels alone", must have been thought up by some parents who had just returned from a summer vacation ttrip accompanied by their offspring. * * * Traveling with the children is a major underlaking, whether it's a hundred mile jaunt to a lake cottage or an extended tour of the United States. Either trip has few dull moments and the equipment to be taken along is just 'about the same, too. * • • The first problem is getting all thai gear stowed in the car. Those firm resolutions about traveling light have a way of wobbling when Sister can't bear to leave her doll at home and Junior tearfully demands his dump trucks. Then the uncertain laundry facilities necessitate packing almost the entire family wardrobe. Father must have his fishing equipment and Mother can't cook without her favorite frying pan. Sometimes it would be simpler to phone a moving crew and take the whole house along on the vacation. * * * "Take Along Plenty of Food" is a major rule when traveling with youngsters. No matter how many meals you eat in restaurants, some little voice is always piping up, "I'm hungry!" A few dox.en sandwiches, certain less juicy fruits and a box of cookies will help stave off starvation. Potato chips are nice too, but they make you mighty thirsty. & v * This brings us to another family touring problem — maintaining the bodily liquid balance. Crossing the Sahara on a camel could not bring any more thirst to a young throat than passing a root beer stand in an automobile. Street corners have water fountains on them and ioad signs advertise pop. If any child forgets about wanting a drink for a moment or two, he is easily reminded. * C « When you finally get all throats watered down, you find you have trouble at the other end of the line. All lamily trips :>tarl with a whispered suggestion to each member. When you stop for gas there, are mure suggestions with the invariable leply, "I don't hafta now." But when you gel fifly miles from nowhere oul on the highway, they all "hafta" and they can't wait for the ncxl rest room! V * * Smart parents have a few tricks up their sleeves to amuse the kids while traveling. There are ull sorts of jolly games like Five Guesses and Who .Sees the Highway PaUolmnnV 'I'm) nlu-n lite diversionary methods don't work and parents just give up and let the kids fight. Or they can read comics. Bui this has a way of robbing travel of its broadening influences and Beetle Bailey often holds more fascination for the youngsters lhan Ihe sights of the trip. « * * Traveling with children may net be the most relaxing way lo tour, but I'm convinced that .it is worth all the headaches. When you return, you find you have a whole new compartmenl filled in your storehouse of memories. Those can be taken out and fondly looked at long after the children are grown and they'll furnish all sorts of material for "ic- member when" sessions. If we tend to polish up the good parts and make our family look lots more adventuresome, who's to care? And, taking the children along on a trip is usually less complicated than finding a com- petant baby-sitter. V * * By the time you read this, I plan to be on the beach in front of the Algona Outing Club cottage on beautiful Cass Lake, Father and Bill will be out in '.he boat catching w;.ll-oyes as fast as they can pull them in. The girls will be making mud pies and sand castles in between swims and Wienie will be under the porch chasing chipmunks.
