4«Alfltt«fl (la.) Upper Det Mo!n«4 Thursday, bctotw 27, 1955 Someone once suggested thai if I ever got stumped for a column subject I could make up some lists of things I like and some things I don't like. "You can go on and oh about such things", the reader suggested, "and though nobody else gives a darn what you do or do not like, it sure helps to fill up the paragraphs." Well, this week I sure ' need a column subject. . * * > • • The Good Housekeeping magazine has been running a little feature in the back of the book. It's called, "10 Things That-Make My Heart Beat Faster". They've had Jinx Falkenberg, Jane Picke~ns, Jane Withers, Peter Lind Hayes and his wife, Mary Healy and some of the'things that raise their pluse rate are Taking off in a DC-7, when you are introduced to the President of the United States, and Hooking a big fish off the Florida coast. I have, experienced none of these things but there are lots of things that make my Heart Beat Faster and here are 10 of them: 1—Running up steps too quickly. 2—Sunshine after several days of rainy • weather or a shower after a long, hot, dry spell. 3—An unsolicited hug, kiss or sign of affection from any of our children when I least expect it. Especially when I've been mean' and crabby. 4—The sight of a golden brown; bubbly casserole of macaroni and cheese. (Nobody else in our family likes it.) 5—The "Going Home" theme from the New World Symphony. 6—The smell of freshly-laundered, sun-dried clothes and the essence of home-made bread baking. 7—The crease in the back of the neck of a tiny baby. 8—The organ prelude at church —that peaceful interval in which to make the transition from the hurly-burly of Sunday morning to the worship service. 9—When a long awaited letter arrives, preferably with check enclosed. 10—Helen Hayes — her voice and her acting. > ; - • f • * •• » • • On the other hand, • I have another list? It's { y',10, Very Unpleasant Sensation's?' '• 1>—The suspicion that you have just swallowed a fly. 2—Finding a mouse's calling card in the silverware drawer. 3—A Cold Sore. 4—The smell of Ben Hur perfume generously daubed on little girl's hair. 5—When your feet "go to sleep" and you don't realize it until you try to step on them. 6—A cat rubbing against your ankles. 7—The sound of raucous laughter during a serious dramatic scene at the movies. 8—A headache. 9—A wife nagging her husband (or vice-versa) when there are others present. 10—The knowledge that you have hurt someone's feelings or that you have made a fool of yourself. * * * Maybe I'm not as romantic minded as I should be, but I'm getting a little sick and tired of hearing about the Princess Margaret - Townsend romance. I wish she'd either kick over the traces and marry him or give him up and get it over with. \ realize Margaret is considered the world's property but her joys and her heartbreaks certainly can't be any more intense than those of any other girl having difficulties in her love life * » ¥ Her highness hasn't called upon Grace for advice lately, but just the same I have a few words for her. I don't think .she's so hot at picking men. Peter is way too old for her and he's not even so very good looking. Even if he weren't a divorced man with all the religious complications that brings, I still think Margaret could do better. But she's lived all her life with the handicap of royal blood and she's hardly ever been completely alone with n man let alone shop around a bit. And although chaperones have always frowned upon it, a little smooching in dark corners can help a gal make up her mind as to whether the man is Mr Right or not. Maybe Margaret should consult her Uncle Edward and her Aunt Wallis. I Wonder if they would act as they did if they could live their great romance all over again. • • • Floyd Holt owes the famous movie star, Broderick Crawford fifty cents! If Iowa had beaten U. C. L. A. in the football game Friday night, it would have been Broderick sending Floyd the money. Floyd and his wife, Bea have just returned from California and one night last week they were at a hotel in Los Angeles with several ex- Algonans—Sally and Lou Tigges, Jess and Midge Beamish and Ruth and Jerry Allen. When the movie star came into the room, Floyd recognized him and for a gag, said, "There's my old pal, Brod Crawford." His friends egged him on a bit so Floyd, thinking the worst that he could get was the cold shoulder, went up to talk With him. Mr Crawford was very friendly. He introduced his press agent to Floyd, bought him a drink and they started talking football. Floyd was willing to support his alma mater's chances to the tune of fifty cents so the addresses were exchanged. But he sure wished it had been Broderick Crawford sending him the money, instead. . J • ' - * *,•;-*? ,' The Holts were also guests in the home of Mr and Mrs Dick Dale. Dick, as we all know, is a local boy now a member of the Lawrence Welk orchestra and a featured singer on their Saturday night television show. From the way people around here enjoy Dick's singing I thought he had probably received a lot of fan mail from Algona but Dick told the Holts that h.e had had only a couple of letters) This situation can be, remedied by writing to the,, Lawpence Welk rpgram, *ABC-3^vUZlollywo6cl. Too many of us neglect to show our appreciation even of the things we most enjoy. • * • A few weeks back I wrote in this column about George L. Herter's idea of the perfect french frying fat. He recommends beef suet so I got me a bunch of it, fried it out and I've been using it ever since. It works just fine. No after taste even when you make a batch of doughnuts right after french frying shrimp. And you can leave the fat right in the fryer. * * * Last week the recipe contest included several recipes for both THESE WOMEN! By d'Alessio THE WORKIKG GIRL "Don't give up hope.
