A while i back this column carried a sort of glossary of marital remarks, together with their real meaning. As every parent knows, no mattey how many uplifting influences you provide for your offspring, they persist in turning out just like their parents and children have a habit of saying one thiflg and meaning another, just like their parents. • • • Parents get quite adept at translating the youngsters' remarks but even so Mdmma and Daddy goof a little and kid$ often put one over on us. Nowadays you have to have a colle,ge education and a yearly, refresher course to keep ahead ofithe sons and daughters'who are still in grade school. Lacking that, you have to use a little common sense and sometimes that's difficult to do. The "kids have a habit of sneaking up oft us. They wait to ask us.something until we're stirring a-stew with one hand, holding the telephone with the other and trying to listen to what the club committee .chairman has to say. But if we are on our toej, we can interpret what the kids mean and here are a few examples. • • • "I can't find my blue dress so can I wear the red one?" She hates the" blue' one because it doesn't have a pocket on it. "You promised, Mamma!" I said perhaps we'd see. "Daddy said I could." Daddy said she could if she got permission from Mamma. ' "All the other kids in my room get to stay up until 9:30 every single night." Some kid hoodwinked his folks into letting him stay up until 9 and he bragged about it at school. "All the kids are getting bicycles when they arc seven."'Her seven year old friend said maybe lie was going to get one. "My te'acher says she likes my hair in a pony tail." She doesn't want a short hair cut. 1 » • • "My teacher doesn't like me. She picks on me." Teacher kept her after school as a well-desevy- cd punishment for whispering in class. "I sure like my teacher." Teach- er let her stay • after school to help pin things on the bulletin board. "You know that problem you helped me with? I got it wrong." Mamma should have paid more attention to Arithmetic in fourth grade. "Everybody else's mother in » room comes to visit school once a week." A mother visited scho9l today, and she wants me to visit, tomorrow. "She hit me first so I hit her back." It was a draw. * "I just accidently pushed him a little and He had to go andclob ber me.," She started it, , ''¥011 should see the beaut I gave' trie other, guy." He won.* "I don't know why that kid jan't pick on somebody his own size." He lost. "It won't spoil my supper if I just cat this handful of marshmallows and two or three cookies." Might as well not set a place for her. She won't eat a thing. "Honest, Mom. We'll 'put it all back when we're through." They'll put back just the things that can be proved that they out there. The rest will have gotten into the living room without the aid of human hands. Mamma will clean it up. "I cleaned my room." The comic books, pajamas, apple cores, odd socks, dust, dolls and pieces to the erector set are shoved under the bed. "I'clearied my room real good." Just the'comic books, pajamas, apple cores, odd socks, dolls and pieces to the erector set are shoved under the bed. The dust has been swept out into the hall. "But -I just had a bath last night." He had a bath last Saturday night and this is Thursday. "I love you. Mamma." She wants to go shopping with me, or she craves a nickel' or she wants to wear my poppit beads. "You hate me! You like all the other kids better than you do me." She wants me to give her a little special attention. But to be perfectly honest, parents dc;il in double talk, too. And the kids have a way of under- standing ,what we rfeally .. alsb, Lest one of them reads ....and catches oh fo bur tricks, I'll give fewer examples than I Wave of the other side of the story. , "You want to grow up to be strong and healthy, dofrt you?" fiat your liver. "Too marry sweets are bad for the teeth." Mom didn't fix any dessert. \ "See the nice little Fairy Dollar." 'It's cooked, sliced carrots. • * * * "Ask you* faiher." Ma's passing the .buck again. : ' "We"ll see." Mamma hash t quite made up her mind but she can probably be talked'into it. "Maybet sometime." She will give in if she's nagged long enough. ' "Absolutely not!" Ask her again when she isn't feeling quite so cross. "Do as I say, not as I do!" The kids have caught Mom setting a bad example again. * "I made you some nice chocolate pudding." That cake is for the bake sale. "We just have leftovers for lunch today. Why don't you ask her sometime when we have a nice meal." Mom doesn't want juvenile guests. "It's alright with me if it's alright with your friend's parents." Mom is counting on some other mother to squelch the project. "Yqu are t6o young to do that." Parents want their youngsters to remain their babies a little long- r. "You are loo big to act that way." Parents want the kids to ;ro'w up and have some sense. * Sehoby Predicts Veto By President On Farm Bill DISTINCTIVE ALG0N A STATIONERY "It Carries A Message" Now Available at the Algona Upper Des Moines office.

Grace Guest speaker at the Rotary Club at Fort Dodge last wdek was Chester Schoby of Algona, past president of the' American Dairy association and widely known in dairy circles. He if also a district supervisor of the- ASC * Schoby was introduced by John Ferguson, a former Al* gbnan, the program chairman. Schoby said that it is vital to the long-term well-being of the farmer that any farm program .be popular with the 87% of the American people who are n,ot farmers. Schoby, prophesied that Congress will not pass any farm program before the Easter recess, and that the President will veto whatever farm bill is finally drawn by Congress, the Ft.' Dodge Messenger reported. Schoby said that the only real basis for any farm support program is to guarantee thfe consumer an adequate food supply, and that, Americans should '-be thankful that they are not suffering from a food scarcity such as during the drouth years of-the 1930's. He added that the farmer must have some government help while at the same time helping himself more by improved methods and more productive work. "Farming is a long-time business," said Schoby, "and the farmer must consider those years of smaller return and lower prices in relation to the more profitable years by averaging biannual income." Schoby said that the greatest weakness in today's farm program was the absence of a cros»- compliance provision in the price- support and acreage -allotment feature of the farm law. Cross-compliance, the speaker said, means that acreage in a particular district taken out of production of an allotted crop cannot be used to grow any other crop that is an allotment in another area. Schoby gave an example of what lack of cross-compliance means to the Iowa farmer. Iowa is the center of 43 million acres allotted to corn, on the basis of 70 per cent of land normally used for corn, he said. Normally, rom 45 to 50 per cent of the otal acres in this area are used or corn. Oustide of this corn allotment area California, the South md elsewhere—there are 28 mil- ion additional acres of corn land where there is no corn acreage allotment and where corn price supports do not prevail. As a result, Schoby said, an increasing amount of corn , is • raised anc more hogs are fed in those areas If plantings of cotton, corn grains, soybeans, sorghums,- etc. are to be allotted, compliance should be nationwide, not area wide, he declared.

For this Buick— this big and strapping Buick SPECIAL Scdan-this broad and brawny beauty With its record-high power and record -high compression-is a buy in any man's language. It is priced within a fc\v dollars of the well- known smaller cars. It actually costs lc^ than some models of these very same cars-am/ tlie juice we'll shou) you jtwces it.
