UpjSBrDes Maine* Thursday, Sep*' 22' 195S «: 4l ,, lc girls, .They are'i 'sweet, innocent and delightful to have around most, of the time. But little girls have quite a bit of hair on :their heads and if you don't wartt td get into trouble 'With the Board of.Health, every once in a while that hair has to be shampooed. And hair wash- ,ing can turn an otherwise sunnj ^little Miss into a screaming meany. • * * The -actual lathering riftsinfy and pin-curling of a little girl's hair often takes less time than talking,'her into submitting to the process in the first place. There's : always' one mofe page in the comic book, one more TV program to find "how it comes "out" or a doll to be put to bed before the shampoo can be started. Or the little lady disappears to her , friend's house while Mama is rounding up the shampoo, towels and combs. 'At our house; I sometimes try tomake a game.out of hair washing I place a stool by the table, » set out the bobby pins and try to' make the kitchen sink look like a shampoo lavatoryr Mrs Sigsbee's Homely. Beauty Parloi is now open:for'business'", I an- oiince gaily, j "Who gets to be my first customer?" "Mary Ann does!", shouts Jeanie. "Jeanie does!", shouts Mary Ann. "I had to be first last week." hairdresser works half so hard as t do enticing customers into tne Salon. '..*.. . . » - * : * . • . . Various methods have > been tried at our house in the effort to make juvenile hair washing less hectic. We've shampooed in the bathtub with the victim lying over my arm while I pour water over her hair, we've tried the spray faucet on the kitchen .sink and we've even set up the ironing board for the girls to lay on with their heads hanging over the lavatory. It all ends up the same way. Soap in, the eyes, water all over the floor, screams and tears from the daughters' and a very much. disgusted mother. ' As the children grow older, things are beginning; to; look up a little in the hair washing department. Mary Ann has learned to do part of the job by herself and when she gets lather in her eyes she screams much more softly than wben Mamma ..does it Bill, bless his heart, is 'a boy and can tend to his own shampooing with a swipe of the washcloth while he's bathing. Jeanie is still a full fledged protestor. So, if on any Saturday-morning you come within six blocks of our house and you hear an awful commotion, please don t .think J. am beating our offspring.

Leonard Herter oi Waseca, Minn.' Several Algonans know Mr Her- ; ter and although I've never met' him, I've known of him for several years as "The Feather Man" because he used to, and maybe still does, furnish feathers for stage costumes, fish flics, etc. The fish filleting information in Mr Herter's booket I'm turning over to Father sines that's his department. I was especially interested in the comments on making French fried potatoes. Mr Herter tells us not to soak the cut potatoes in ice water before frying them as most recipes state. 'This will ruin them, he says, and only makes them absorb more grease. Beef fat is the only fat to be used for any French frying. Cotton seed oil and corn oil are fine for making plastics, lard is good for pastry, and olive oil is alright for salad; but none of them are worth i oot for French frying. Vegt- able shortenings are also frown d upon. For true French fi'y- ng, Mr Hertsr says, go to the utcher and get four or five ounds of fresh beef suet, fr; V out slowly and use ' it. 1 eaves no cdors to the things you ry in it, leaves no after taste and does not pentrate foods lik- oils. You can leave it unrufri gerated and you only have t< change the fat in your fryo about every six months. Well. ic has me convinced.

Ruth and her twin sister, Esther were classmates' of Father and me and she had accompanied her father to Whittemore to attend funeral services for an old friend of UK family. As is the way with too many old friends and acquaintances, Ruth didn't have time to stop down for a cup of coffee but it was nice to talk with nor and she keeps good track of us through the UDM. Her -parents, Mr and Mrs Schmml, longtime occupants of the teucheragL' at Lolls Creek are well and live nuar her in Wisconsin.
