IITAIltSHtD 1165 ALOONA, IOWA, THURSDAY, MARCH 31, 1966 2nd "YOU ARE JUST GOING TO have to do something about that child," scolded Mother Nature. "Sometimes I think she's the most exasperating one of our twelve children 1" Her husband, Father Time, looked up from the magazine he was reading, chuckled a bit and said, "Oh, has April been giving you a bad time again f - o - "INDEED SHE HAS," sputtered Mother Nature. "The very first thing this morning I found my best snow white blanket shrunken to nothing, the tips of my branches were bursting, and all my little breezes were dancing all over the place. 1 should have known it was April fooling around 1" "As if that weren't enough, April teased the birds back with the promise she'd be nice and warm. When they got here she was absolutely nasty for several days. 1 scolded her about this and she clouded up and cried all over the place. Next thing I knew she was smiling again, and you know how sweet April can be when she is sunny." - o - "I TELL YOU, FATHER it isn't easy to raise this Time family. There are so many problems when you have 12 children. I try to appreciate the good qualities in each one of them. May is sweet, but shy, June is a raving beauty, July and August are nice fellows even if both of them have tempers like a tornado. I love the way September is up and doing, and October has the most gorgeous blue eyes. Even January, who seems so cold and unfriendly, was an adorable baby and there was much joy when he came." - o - "MANY PEOPLE SAY OUR April is their favorite Time. She can be so gay and wonderful she bewitches them. But she's so unpredictable - one minute she's blowing and blustering with her brother, March; the next she's smiling and laughing with her sister, May. I gave her such a nice new dress in a soft shade of green to wear and a garland of crocuses for her hair. Next thing I knew she was splashing in a mud puddle and trying to steal the Tulips I'd planned for June." - o - FATHER TIME, TRYING TO live up to his reputation of healing all things, tried to soothe his wife. "Well, dear, I don't thinfc- April so bad - for a teenager. Did you notice the way she always helps her sister, May, with her flowers ? And how she cleans up the mess that her brothers, January, February and March leave ?" Mother Nature had to admit that April was good at that. "But," she added ruefully, "last year she was so enthusiastic about it that when she went to drain the wash water, she flooded seven states 1" - o- MOTHER NATURE FINDS FT difficult to be angry with any of her children for very long. After a bit she said to her husband, "Well, dear, I wouldn't pop off this way to anybody but you, the children's father. You understand their weak points as well as their good ones. I'm really very proud of all of them - even April. Somebody told me just the other day that this young lady certainly shows a lot of "promise." "She has a Sort of uhdefiriable longiilg about' her. I think she doesn't know quite what she wants from life. • Not yet, anyway." - o - "APRIL"* IS A GREAT ONE FOR arranging Things in pairs," Mother Nature went on. "Today she sorted out the quail, who ordinarily run in coveys, into two-somes. You can hear them calling "Bob White" to each other right now. She has bunnies picking out partners for their burrows, and robins selecting twigs for their nests. What she does toward turning young men's fancies lightly to love is something scandalous 1 She's busy bringing letters Iro'm girls to their sweethearts in service and she also has quite a few letters from the Internal Revenue Department. There's mixed views toward those, depending on whether or not April brings them a tax refund." - o - FATHER TIME NODDED SAGELY. He knows about such things having had many purchase plans named for him - Time Payments. Then he remarked, "Well, Mother, I don't think we need to worry too much about our April. Think about how awful it would be if we didn't have her. Wouldn't the Time family be dull then ? And now, dear, I really must be fleeting. Have to live up to my image, you know. Time never stands still. Time marches on I" - o - DURING THE WEEK OF March 27 through April 2, people having birthdays include Sherry Lloyd, Chris Farrell, Grady Phillips, Elaine Simmons, Ann Lytle.LorenNelson, GlenTschetter, Jo Ann Rich, Bob Sigsbee, Donna Jane Gant, Dorothy Schmidt, Kathy Taylor, Perry Collins, Billie Lelninger, Jimmy Allen, Helene Whittemore, Gerald Ferris, Nell Unnan, Reinhard Wetzel, Kristen Ballard, Lee McBride, Dr. C.
