woman Betty Schutter of Algona last week was named A Merit Mother in the statewide competition for Iowa Mother of the Year. Jointly sponsored by the Algona Branch of the American Association of University Women, of which she is a charter member, and the Women's Society of Christian Service of the First United Methodist Church, Mrs. Schutter commented, "It is a great honor to represent all tha mothers of this area who have had faith that families are still important in this doubting world, and who have done their quiet, daily best to bring up their children "in the way they should go". If there is any good to come from recognizing one particular family, may it be to call attention to all families and to the responsibility each family has to provide love, security and the opportunity for each member to grow in loving kindness and concern for others." The qualifications for nomination are numerous and precise, but most of all, she must be fully qualified to represent the Mothers of America in all responsibilities attached to the role as Mother of the Year. She must be a successful mother and homemaker as evidenced by the character and achievements of her individual children, as well as an active member of a religious body. A sense of responsibility in civic affairs is also a requisite and she must be active in public service to society. The traits highly regarded in mothers, courage, cheerfulness, patience, affection, understanding and a homemaking ability must also be prevalent. The youngest child should be over the age of 15. Betty has gracefully met all the qualifications, though extremely modest about her achievements - indeed an asset. She is constantly active in the First United Methodist Church, as well as civic affairs. She helped lay the groundwork to organize Girl Scouts in Algona, St. Ann Hospital Auxiliary and worked diligently on the Citizen's Advisory Committee for the Algona Community Schools, Community Concert Association and is fifst vice-president of the Iowa Federation of Republican Women. Mrs. Schutter graduated from the University of Iowa with a degree in Speech Pathology and has kept active in teaching both the young and adult. Dr. and Mrs. Schutter are parents of five children, two of whom are married. John, Jr. received his BA from Cornell College and his MAT from Colgate University.

Irvington Couple Report Middle School Anxious Moments In California Science - Art ~~ Fair March 16 1 — Koisuth County Advance Monday, March 15, 1971 Waco woman's ideas about infidelity whacky By Abigail Van Buren tS' mi by Chlctto Trlbune-N. Y. Ntwt Synd., Inc.) DEAR ABBY: In regard to WACO WOMAN, who claimed that her husband was no different from any other man—he just likes "a change" once in a while: My husband and I have been married for 26 years and have six children. We not only love each other—we like each other. I am considered a very attractive woman and my husband is handsome, intelligent and a good provider. My husband is also no different from any other man, and admits that he has considered infidelity just for the novelty of it. For that matter, so have I. We have resisted temptation [and at times it hasn't been easy] out of sheer will power. We know that the true joy in living comes to those who do right for no other reason than the right thing to do is the wise thing to do. BEHAVING OURSELyES DEAR ABBY: For the information and enlightenment of "Waco Woman," just as all women are not opinionated martyrs as she is, neither are all men alike. In my 25 years of married life, perhaps to the credit of my wonderful wife, I never have cheated on her. There have been many opportunities, and i would be lying if I said I wasn't tempted from time to time, but [and here I know there are many men like me] it isn't worth losing a lifetime of joy and love and everything my wife and I built together for a few minutes of ecstasy with someone who may not even care how I like my coffee. HAPPY HOMER . ' "' ••--,--•• - : ,. ; -v. . - .^ , £ DEAK HOMER: Now, let's hear it from the distaff side! ' DEAR ABBY: The letter sent to you by "Waco Woman" [or was it 'whacky'?] has prompted me to ask you a question my mother and I discuss often. Is monogamy natural for the human male? Being newly married, now I wonder if I should expect my husband to stray? My married brother has had some extra-marital affairs, and he brags about these conquests to my mother and me, and mother just laughs. Yet if I were to do the same thing my mother would lock me in the cellar for a month! The preacher says, "What God has joined together, let no man put asunder." Doesn't that go for women, too? MRS. L HEAR MRS. L: Yes. The mating game has the same set of rules for the goose as it has for the gander. But for some reason, society has never really ostracized the goose who flies the coop, but the gander gets her wings clipped. This is known as The Double Standard. |0r more appropriately, The Double Cross.) DEAR ABBY: So "Waco Woman" says her husband is just like all the other men. He would like a "change" once in a while. Well, ain't that lovely? I would like a change once in a while myself. And the change I would like is Paul Newman. But if my husband ever caught me with Paul Newman he would break my neck. I don't need to worry however, because if Paul Newman wanted a change, he sure wou'dn't P ick me - DREAMER Capped Petra Wingert of Wesley, a student at the Iowa Methodist School of Nursing in Des Moines, was capped during ceremonies held Jan. 22.

IRVINGTON - Mr. and Mrs. Herman Becker recently returned from a trip to San Francisco, Calif., and Las Vegas, Nev. In San Francisco, they visited their son and wife, Mr. and Mrs. Dick Becker and Mrs. Beda Watson. It was during the visit to Mrs. Watson that an incident occurred which Herman says he will not soon forget. The Beckers had called one forenoon and had visited for some time. Mrs. Watson had put the tea kettle on preparatory to making coffee. The Beckers suggested that since they had promised Paul Watson, Algona, they would bring back a picture of his mother, that now would be a good time to take the photograph. The entire group stepped outside. Mrs. Watson, the first one out, warned that the lock was on and the door should be left open. Whether the last one out didn't • hear, or whether the breeze caused the door to slam shut, is not clear. Ordinarily, there would have been no problem, since the landlord would have opened the door. But the landlord was away, and the small store next door was also closed. A phone call was made to the fire department from a neighbor's home across the street. In the meantime, the landlord came home and opened the door, after which the fire department with hook and ladder and screaming siren, dashed up. The Beckers also saw one of Mrs. Watson's neighbors, a man, 104 years old, who still holds down his job as a waiter. He is much younger looking than his age and attributes it all to eating organic foods on which no sprays or insecticides have been used. He has a god-father, who is reported to be 129 years old: - o - ELEVATOR BANQUET The Irvington Co-operative Elevator held a banquet for patrons at the V.F.W.
