Address Pattern Department, Mason City Globe-Gazette, 121 W. 19th St., New York 11, N. Y. Peace Every Day Featured During Meeting Three Wa-Tan-Ye m embers' furnished the program for the club on Tuesday noon at the Cerro Gordo hotel. The theme of the program was "Christmas—So What." Miss Mildred Kuhlmeier led off with a description of her family's get-together which was held on Sunday evening. The children, ages 4 to 14, furnished the entertainment which was planned and executed by them without any adult direction. Gifts were exchanged and the young members of the family gave each of theirs a "trial run" which produced considerable noise and confusion. Miss Kuhlmeier expressed the thought that we work so hard in preparation for this greatest of all holidays that we suffer a relapse when the great clay arrives. She quoted an article by Sinclair Lewis in which he said that if 10 per cent of the people in 10 of the United Nations would only do something, each in his own way, about the "Peace on Earth" to which we give so much lip service at Christmas time, throughout the year peace would become an actuality. Mrs. Alice Johnson, in one of her Swedish monologues, deplored the tendency on the part of all "to gif Missus Yones 2 handkerchiefs ven she has gif en us von." She pointed out, in her own Inimitable way, that we lose sight of the true meaning of Christmas in the race to give more expensive and elaborate gifts. She urged her listeners to simplify their Christmas gift giving and to spend more time in thinking of the significance of the clay and in the practice of promoting "Peace on Earth." Mrs. Mary Andrick stepped into the part of Mrs. Ebenezer Scrooge and went back to the days of the counting house of Marley and Scrooge. She described her acquaintance with Eb when he was going through Oxford and how it was predicted that he would have such a brilliant future. "After graduation Eb formed a partnership with Marley in the counting house and prospered," she said. "But the nature of his business and the men with whom he associated caused him to become hardened and selfish. After Marley died, Eb became even more money mad and then came his memorable Christmas with the Cratchetts. Scrooge became a new man after this experience and each day planned how he could do some good thing for his fellow men. Mrs. Andrick stepped back into the year 1948 and asked members of Wa-Tan-Ye to bring the good will of Christmas time in to the 365 days of the coming year. Miss Doris Bruce announced that the house committee for January and February will be Ida Rorem and Mary Stebbins and the program committee for the same 2 months will be Ruby Potter and Ethel Wooldridge. The program of Jan. 4 will feature the piano playing of Harold Casey. Mrs. Tolla Blowers read a letter from the Business and Professional Women's club announcing the Small Businesses clinic to be held at the Fort Des Moines Hotel on Jan. 16. An invitation was extended to Wa-Tan-Yeans to attend this clinic. —o— RUTH BRINKMAN TO BE MARRIED Provide Program for Wa-Tan-Yes Charles ' City—Mr. and Mrs. Fred Brinkman, Clarksville, announce the engagement of their '; daughter, Ruth, to Pfc.'

Portrait gown of strawberry pink satin, with snug bodice topped by glitter embroidered black velvet. By Jo Copeland. Electric Mixer Should Get Special Care Ames — If an electric mixer showed up in Mom's Christmas stocking this year, she probably headed for the kitchen and a cake recipe at the first opportunity. Just a word to the wise for Mom, however, is to give that set of directions which comes with her mixer a good going-over before she starts mashing the potatoes, or whipping up a batch of cookies or sandwich spread. It pays in good results. Doubtless the family has already made sure that Mom's mixer will work on the type of electrical current at home, Mildred Nelson, extension foods specialist of Iowa State college comments. But, just to be sure, check that important item, she says. Most standard models are designed for use on 110 to 120 volts of current. The voltage is usually stamped on the name plate. As to care of that new gift, Miss Nelson says it will need occasional oiling. Most mixers are accompanied by instructions as to where and how much oiling to do. Once a month is usually often enough in a farm home unless many attachments are used. Very light high-grade sewing machine oil is best, and no more than the instructions recommend. For cleaning, wipe it with a clean, damp cloth. Put only the bowls, beaters and removable attachments into dish water. The head, framework and revolving platform just needw a polishing off with a damp cloth. The revolving platform is serviced with ball bearings, and if water containing a detergent comes into contact with them, the oil is removed, rusting results and free movement of the bowl is impossible. The cord, in particular, needs to be kept clean since fats that splash may accumulate on the cord causing it to deteriorate. Put nothing more solid than a rubber scraper inside the bowl once the motor is started. Spoons and other instruments mangle the beaters too easily. Once beaters are bent throw them away. It's impossible to straighten them up enough that they will not'wear the motor excessively. Farm families might well keep 2 sets of beaters on hand, Miss Nelson adds. Bride Arrives From Germany Cresco—A wedding that will be the culmination of a romance in Germany will be solemnized Saturday afternoon in the parsonage home of the Rev.
