Miy i, 1956 cllgonn (Upper Brs Mother's Day falls on the 2nd Sunday in May. Theoretically, all any mother has to do on thu special occasion is to sit in hoi- rocking chair, receive elaborats gilts from her youngsters and listen to her whole family pay tribute to lifr saintliness. I'm ail for Mother's Day. We ought to have them 3(55 days out of the year and when Leap Year conies along the 366th clay could be Father's Day. Now, I am convinced that I receive from my family about ail the love and devotion any normal woman can expect—probably far more? than I deserve. But Mother's Day at our house never seems to go quite like "the book" says. The second Sunday in May persists; in turning out like any ordinary day which means, nat- Get your entry blank at urally, everything gets all fouled up. I am not complaining very seriously for I seem to thrive on confusion but one of these years I'm going to have an ideal Mother's D.ay. 1 have it all dreamed up just how it will go. » » * My dream Mother's Day will start about 8:30 in the morning. Until that lime, I'll bo slumbering peacefully without being rudely awakened by sound? of mayhem in the children's rooms over who gets to read the funnies first. When I softly ask Father if he remembers what day it is he'll say, "Happy Mother's Day, Harling!", instead of muttering, "Sunday, Stupid! Shuddup so "a can go back to sleep!" • • • From the kitchen will come the delicious aroma of coffee brew- ing, bacon crisping and eggs p frying sunny-side up just the way I like them. The cooking will be accomplished by black magic, I suppose, for when I dream, I dream big. Breakfast will be eaten in bed, even if I have absolutely no fever and on the tray will be a single, perfect rose bud. And nobody will palm off on me that fork with the crooked tine I'm always getting. * •' • The kids and Father will absorb their nourishment by osmosis, I guess, since that's the only way I can think of involving no dish washing for me. After breakfast I'll have a nice long soak in the bathtub and I won't have to remove any soggy wash cloths, bath tub rings nor model submarines before I hop in. At exactly 20 minutes before ten the youngsters will miraculously appear all beautifully groomed for Sunday School. They'll have on socks without holes, shoes that match and each of them will have his Bible, his offering envelope and his workbook with the lesson all prepared. There'll be no last minute buttons to sew on. no snarls to comb, no lint to brush and none of the kids will have a runny nose. * * * Father will insist on accompanying me to church. That'll show these Presbyterians that I'm not a widow after all! The preacher's sermon will be his us aroma oi col lee brew- preachers sermon will t PETERSEN FURNITURE IN FENTON, IA.

Every member of the congregation will have weekend guests with them so I can write Around Algona on Monday morning without making a single phone call. * * # We'll eat Sunday dinner at a restaurant. The kids will sit quietly in their chairs and mind their manners. Nobody will ask that corn be substituted for peas and if we have chicken, I'll get all white meat. No wings for me on Mother's Day! In the afternoon I'll nap until four o'clock and then several of our friends will drop in and we won't have to clear away the Sunday papers, the popcorn bowls and the apple cores so they can sit and visit. Television will be coining in clear as a bell in the evening. Ed Sullivan's show will have Sam Levinson on it, G. E. Theater, Helen Hayes, and we'll be able to get both the sound and the picture to What's My Line? The Nightcap movie will have been produced in 1955. « * * On second thought, perhaps my ideal Mother's Day wouldn't be so much fun after all. I just know if it did come true I'd have to undergo treatment for shock. Some day after the children grow up, I may be able to spend Sunday any way I want to. And it could be that I'll then look back to these hectic years as having the most ideal Mother's Days of all! * * * Currently we are celebrating National Hospital week. It's not a bit out of keeping that it comes about the same time as Mother's Day for what mother isn't interested in the special services and skill hospitals offer to us and our loved ones? Even if we never have occasion to use our local hospital for anything less happy than the birth of a baby, it's still mighty comforting to know St. Ann is there. * • * St. Ann Hospital Auxiliary can very well be proud of its service <o the community and to the hospital. This year's membership consists of 354 women from Algona, Bancroft, Bode, .Burt, Corwith, Irvington, Lakota, Ledyard, Livermore, Lone Rock, LuVerne, Ottosen, Sexton, St. Benedict, Swea City, Titonka, Wesley, West Bend and Whittemore. * * * Each Monday and Thursday red-smocked volunteers from the auxiliary operate a service carl at the hospital. They distribute free books and magazines and sell toilet articles, gum, birth announcements, etc. >. Mrs Frank Moulton is service cart chairman and each volunteer works once a month. Mrs L. Lenz is chairman of the sewing committee which has undertaken to keep up on the mending of hospital linens ana supplies. » * * A S500 nursing scholarship will be presented to some girl in this area this year and the rummage sale which alternates years with the Tag Day was held last month. The auxiliary purchases much extra equipment which St. Ann otherwise could not have. Four open meetings are held each year and this year two of them featured talks by doctors on medical subjects particularly interesting to women. The last open meeting will be in June when awards of recognition will be made to volunteers with 50 hours or moru of service. * * * Margaret Truman's and Grace Kelley's weddings caused a world-wide stir but at our house neither ceremony attracted a fraction of the excitement with our youngsters as when their Grandma got married this week. THESE WOMEN! "I'm running down for some office supplies, boss. VVe'r* all out of nail polish, chewing gum and magazines!" If isn't often a man can be a bachelor one day and the next acquire a wife, two sons, three daughters, assorted daughters-in- law and sons-in-law and !•} grandchildren! Perhaps we should extend to him a little sympathy along with our congratulations. We are very happy over the newest addition to our family and we sincerely hope he'll be able to stand us. * * * This week's recipe is for PENNEY'S REMEMBERS MOTHER!
