Woman Of The Week When I went into Katberin Joeir*s house early in the afternoon, all was quiet. Two sleepy little boys were sitting on chairs in the kitchen trying to wake up, but managed a shy smile. In just a few minutes, DO matter where I turned, a tiny face with a pair of big eyes was peering around corners at the "stranger". No, these were not Katheren's children. She baby- sits six days a week and averages 9 children each day from 6:45 a.m. to 6 o'clock in the evening, all between the ages of 2 and five. Now that is what I would call a full time job, and Katherine has been doing this steady for the last three years. That's a lot of tiny faces to wash, mouths to feed and children to convince it's nap time. But it really did not look to me as though she has a bit of trouble, and I dropped in unannounced. Katherine and her husband, Charles, have five children of their own; Lois, almost 16; Mike 13; Tim, 12; Bruce, 11 and Marion, who is 6. The Joens met while he was stationed at Fort Rucker, Alabama with the army, and Katherine was living at Ozark, Ala., nearby. He went to Germany and they were married after he returned, then went to the Rolfe area where he had orginally lived and farmed until coming to Algona in March of 1957. Now, one wouldn't think this Mother would have time for hobbies, but she does. She does all of the sewing ior herself and both daughters, enjoys knitting and crocheting and has become fascinated with lingere sewing, she is active in church work at the Regular Baptist church and teaches the Cradle Roll Sunday School class. The Joens family enjoys all sports and most of all, just being together. Katherine is sharing this old genuine southern recipe she brought from her mother.

An authority on GEESE You certainly ain't! For a GOOSE was a "him" You seemed to infer, And the GAN'DER you spoke of Like "he" was a "her." At your mix-up in genders I was amused, But some of your readers Were, no doubt, confused. —MUNCIE. IND. DEAR MUNCIE FAN: For an Iowa lass I feel like a clock For I've often mistaken A DRAKE for a DUCK. In the realm of the barnyard I'm loathe to meander, K'sf)laln, I don't know My GOOSE from my GANDER! [Edgar Allan Po-Po] FAN Union M&D Oldest Rural Club In State The 65th Anniversary of the Union Township Mothers and Daughters Club, the oldest rural club in the State of Iowa, will be observed at their annual Guest Tea to be held Thursday, May 13 in the Home Federal Community Room.

I am a fairly attractive woman and th« mother of three children. I became bored with the housekeeping routine and decided to get a job. That is when my troubles began. I met a man at work, fl'll call him "Charley."] We were very much attracted to each other, f enjoyed having something to get dressed up for every day, and this new excitement did a lot for my ego. My car was laid up for about a week, and Charley offered to drive me home. One thing led to another, and we started meeting secretly. I got hooked on him, and told my husband I wanted a divorce so I could marry Charley. It broke my husband's heart, but he said he wouldn't stand in my way if that's what I wanted. Abby, I was so wrapped up in Charley, I couldn't see the people I was hurting. My husband moved out and I could see as much of Charley as I wanted to. After a few months I realized how foolish I had been. I began missing my husband and Charley suddenly looked less attractive to me. Now I am so ashamed of myself I could die. I realize it's my husband I really love, but what can I do now? J don't deserve a second chance, but do you think my husband would take me back? —ASHAMED DEAR ASHAMED: You'll never know until you ask him. DEAR ABBY: I was nominated for an office in a club [don't mention the office or the club, please] and I really wanted this office. When the results of the election were announced, I lost by ONE vote. I was really heartsick because [as you have probably guessed] I voted for my opponent, who voted for himself! Was it stupid of me to have voted for my opponent? I felt it would have been egotistical to have voted for myself. Two of my friends said they thought I did the right thing in voting for my opponent. Another friend said he thought it was stupid. What do you think? Sock it to me, Abby. -LOST DEAR LOST: You should have voted for the person who IB your opinion would have made the best officer. If yon didn't, then you were stupid for perhaps impracticably hnm- hlej. For Abby'i new booklet. "What Teen-Ager* Want to % K«ow." Mrt si u, Abb y. Bo* M700. Los AngeJes. Cal.
