Next Sunday in Mother's - " ! ,*'* m * w^*«««*«*«j £0 A'AVAItVi » hfl^Cfcf* ' It's'a day when flowers and gifts are, given to Mother and we'll all do a little thinking about what our Mom has meant to us in the past, and if we are fortunate enough to still have her with us, we can tell her so in person. * » « Some of us are privileged to observe Mother's Day from both sides of the fence. We have our own mothers to honor and we are mothers ourselves. This is a highly satisfactory state of affairs for the time when we appreciate Mother most, often does not come until we have children of our own. Then we can speak with more sympathy and gratitude about the things, big and little, that she did for us in rearing us to adulthood. And we don't xwonder so much that s,he made a few little mistakes as we marvel at the fact that she managed to live through it at all. * * » I have my Mother's Day celebration all planned. I'm going to sleep late in the morning ahd when I awake I'll slip into that glamorous new housecoat someone is going to give me. Daddy and the kids will bring me breakfast in bed. The eggs wjll be just • right, the bacon : crisp and the orange juice properly iced. When /I get around to going out in the kitchen I'll find the dishes all washed and everything as neat as a pin. -Father will accompany us to church and the kids will be nicely turned put without my so much as sewing on a button, s . curling a lock or polishing a shoe. We'll have dinner at a restaurant DAVIS Colorful Red COWBOY BANDANNA Fri., Sat., and Monday Limit 2 to * Customer Each You'll wont o couple of these cheery Bandannas for your own Junior Cowboy or Cowgirl They're bright red with attractive bucking bronco and corral design in gay contrasting colors.

Thefe'll be no rjuareilihg arid they'll all express, in flbwefy terms, just how frtuch I mteaft to them* Who do I think I'm kidding? •' . . * * ', '*:•-' It doMit'i hurt io dr**m a littl*. but 1 know that in reality Mother's Day at our house will go quite differently. It's pretty apt to be just a normal day—very hectic. Take today, for instance. It was normal; everything was all fouled up. It wasn't Mother's Day but it was a day in the life of one Mamma. • • .• ;•' •••. '•: 1 awakened to the toothing sounds of little Voices shrieking in the kitchen. They were getting their own breakfast anS they were fighting over -who was to get the last individual pack of Sugar Corn Pops. I staggered into the fray and fdund that they had been making pbpsickles by freezing orange juice. They'd spilled it all ovei; the refrigerator while testing to sefe if they. .Were done. All the cupboard doors were open and. Wienie was lickingAUP the spilled 'milk from the fKfolv She keeps quite wellrnourished that way. * *, • * One hour and several free-for- alls later, the eldest two mounted their bikes and ware off to school. Jeanie went outside to see what mischief she could promote with the neighborhood small-fry. Blessed peace descended and I tackled the ironing—the second big' basketful this week. The quiet was short-lived for Jeanie and cpm- pany returned and started-to play Beauty Parlor in the bathroom. Business was interrupted 'by an old cross Mamma who objected to nail polish decorating the floor. * * * ' . V Toward noon there was the food to be packed for Bill's .weekend camping trip with the Boy Scouts—about a ton of bread-and- butte^r, fruit and knick-knack's to supplement the main fare provided by the Troop. Although Bjll is a very inexperienced camper/ I'm not worrying about, him for .he's in good hands. Bu,t if I know our son, he'll eat' all. the potato chips, oranges and candy the first night and be on slim .rations for the rest of the outing. * « « • In the afternoon I went to school. A good mother always attends evei-y function in which her child participates Unless she _ has a very good reason, such as a sudden attack of rigor mortis, a broken leg or a case of leprosy. Today it was Mary Ann's third grade who showed us what they have' been learning and the trip was both enjoyable and profitable. t. * » Home again and a business call from a night-crawler' customer. You didn't know that counting worms is a part of being a mother? I didn't either, but a promise is a promise and I committed myself to tending Bill's worm business while he's camping. His two biggest orders to date have been for 10 dozen each. Both times Bill was not at home. Gu?ss who got to do the counting. • * * Mary Ann was invited to spend the weekend with Marcia on the farm. We scurried around to find r Need More clean clothes. Jeahie felt left out at this, development so she in- wed Charlotte te fit he* lirst otf3f*ftiiht f ueit They are UpStaifS noW, ift bed but still gig- fling though it's long east time for them to sleep. * * * tto moth**'* dftf ii complete without a list of those things she planned to do but didn't get done. Today it was .the groceries that didn't get bought, the May Bas< kets-to be made for the children to give ahd I fully meant to wash my hair. Thank goodness, there's always tomorrow. .'* * * Tomotfow is A wonderful word. rVe always a great many things saved up for that day. Tomorrow —a great many of them hence^— is when I'm going to have my ideal Mother's Day. By that time, I'll be the sort of saintly creature spoken of in the sentiments on Mother's Day cards. My hands will be folded like Whistler's Mother instead of plunged elbow- deep in the dishwater and I hope by that time to convince somebody that, "Mother knows best." The children will speak of me as their, "angel mother" instead of yelling at me, "Hey, Ma!" Our youngsters will be like Cornelia's kids. She spoke of them as "her little jewels." Right now, ours are more like diamonds in the rough. When this tomorrow" comes, if I should live so long, I'll be rid of my bad habits, my patience will be infinite and I'll be very worthy of the high title of, "Mother!" * * • * This version of tomorrow has very little chance of coming true. If by some wild stretch of likelihood it ever should, I don't think I'd like it! I strongly suspect I'd look back to this time I'm living through right rtow and call them,, the best years of my life. « * * Being a mother is a small miracle and most of us appreciate the fact when we can take time out from the duties involved. I'm glad its an every-day miracle, though, so you, and I can get in on it. Most of us take quite seriously the joys and responsibilities of motherhood but it's a little difficult to keep our halos polished and our wings neatly plucked and still do the wiping up, the running after and the setting things straight connected with rearing a family. « « * A couple of weeks ago. Woman's World had a story about a teen-ager who spent her evening- dress money for shoes for her brother and sister. So many of you called to ask about her and there were several offers to loan or give her a dress. I'm glad to report that the young »lady got the formal and went to the dance. She looked very pretty, too. * * * This week's recipe is for Easy- Creamy Pineapple Ice Cream. 2 eggs 1V4 cups sugar ••••-•• &•••;,.»,.-. , 1 tablsp. cornstarch 1 cup milk IVi cups pineapple juice (1 No. 211 can) 1 cup (Vi pt.) heavy cream 2 drops lemon extract Turn the freezer control on your refrigerator to coldest setting. In a double boiler, mix together the eggs, sugar, cornstarch, milk, and pineapple juice; cook stirring until smoothly thickened. Chill thoroughly. Then whip the cream, flavor and fold it into the chilled pineapple custard. Pour into refrigerator tray and freeze until very firm. Turn out into a bowl and beat with mixer until creamy. Return to tray and re-freeze. Makes over a quart or 6 generous servings. • • • It you like, you can make this ice cream with a no. 2 can of crushed pineapple instead of juice. Follow the above recipe, using 1 cup of syrup drained from the pineapple, plus 3 /i cup sugar in place of the IVi cups sugar called for. Freeze as directed, but after the firm ice cream has been beaten, fold in IVi cups of the drained crushed pineapple. Grace • * » I hope none of you have tried the Rhubarb Cake recipe which appeared in last week's column for its suppsed to have 1 cup of sour milk in it. Mrs Roy Wah'od of Wesley who gave it to me thought it was her mistake, but I looked it up and she has the sour milk listed all right. Just add it to the rest of the ^ingredients which are' listed O.
