J-AI0anci (la.) Upper O*t Main** Tfcvrtdoy, fept. M, 19*6 HiftUltU WITH THE COMING OF FALL, and the kids back In school, there also comes a renewal of club and community activities. The mothers who thought they'd have all sorts of free time after school opened, suddenly find themselves up to the neck In several projects and wondering how they ever got themselves so involved. - o - IT SEEMS TO ME THAT IF agal could manage to keep absolutely quiet she wouldn't have to do much outside of her housework. At least my big mojth is always getting me Into something, particularly in the past. Somebody is always looking for "volunteers" for club work and no matter how private you think the conversation Is, you are almost sure to make a remark that someone will Interpret as an indication that you are a candidate for a job. However, some remarks are more potent than others in getting you Involved and here are some of them: - o - "MY YOUNGEST STARTED FIRST GRADE this year. Just think, the whole day to myself without any kids around I This statement Is the equivalent of waving a red flag at the nose of a gentleman cow. Your days all to yourself are very short In number.. - o - "I THINK interesting. OUR CLUB PROGRAMS SHOULD be made more We should go home feeling that the time spent at the meeting was worthwhile." You are going to be put in charge of the next program and you are very likely to be appointed next year's program chairman. - o - "ISN'T OUR TREASURY GETTING KIND of low?' The Ways and Means committee will put the bee on you to head or work at the rummage sale, the bake sale, and you are probably going to have to sell more vanilla or Christmas cards. - o - "I DIDN'T GET TO BE A Girl Scout when I was young because there weren't enough leaders but I hope my daughter will be able to be one.' In the near future you are apt to be the leader of your daughter's Girl Scout troop. - o- "PARENTS AND TEACHERS SHOULD WORK together.' You are going to be a home room mother, a community school committee member, or, if your school has one, some sort of Big Wheel in the P. T. A. - o - "I DON'T SING GOOD, BUT I SURE SING loud and how I do like to harmonize." Choir practice is every Thursday evening and you will be expected to show up there. - o- MY PERSONAL WATERLOO WHEN it comes to getting involved in projects is my susceptibility to flattery. Let a chairman imply that the Job she has waiting is one that I can do better than most people and I find myself licking envelopes or ringing doorbells. A few remarks about talented people and I take it personally and start writing a skit to order or doing research on such subjects as the "Life of Primitive Peoples In Outer Mongolia." The fact that I know absolutely nothing about what I'm doing makes no difference so long as somebody tells me I'm Just the one for the Job. And If someone says, "I know-you are busy, but do you suppose you could squeeze in just one more job f, I can't resist proving what a powerhouse I am at getting things accomplished. - o - THERE USED TO BE SEVERAL excuses that were pretty effective to use when you wanted to say "no" to extra-curricular activity. But none of them are as effective nowadays as they once were. The first and most successful way to get out of doing club and community work was to take full time employment. For a wife and mother to do this she had to be expert at washing, Ironing and cooking and cleaning at odd hours. But some women felt that working outside of the home and keeping house, too, kept them very little busier than they were when they were merely homemakers and served on all those committees. Then came the high cost of living and today a mighty big share of mothers went to work. And they still have to do all that community work, in the evenings and on weekends or it wouldn't get don? I - o ANOTHER LEGITIMATE' EXCUSE TO SAY "NO" used to be an impending visit from the stork and most people respected it. People who used this excuse year after year, tended to get in a rut or else had a pretty big houseful of children, but it was effective. No so, anymore. Nowadays a woman in a maternity suit is the perfect target for volunteer work up until the day she goes to me hospital, and even while there, some committees think you could Just as well be addressing envelopes or licking stamps. - o - WELL, MOST OF US FEEL THAT we have to do something In the way of community, club and church activity to help pay the rent on the space we take up here on earth. The more we serve, the more we grow. The problem is not that the outside activities are worth our efforts - it Is that the average woman is in danger of spreading herself so thin in her interests that she cannot do justice to any of them and at the same time keep in first place, as we should, our duty to home, husband and youngsters. If a gal could figure out a way to say, "no" to just enough things so that she could still have time to herself and say, "yes", to enough things to keep life Interesting we would really have it made 1 - o- DURING THE WEEK OF SEPT. 18 through 24, people having birthdays include Roberta Miller, Sandra Faulstick, Clarence Macumber, Brenda Sjogren, Cynthia Miller, Kathryn Myers, Thelma Hayes, Ronnie Bronson, Netha Mathes, Brad Chrischilles, Ann Hanson, Nyda Kolp, Brett Bartlett, Dave Smith, De Anne McGuire, David Harig, Lauri Snyder, Susan Behr, Vernice Cash, Mark Prieskorn, Janice Hoeckel, Julie Ann Chrischilles, Vivian Gilbert, Kyle Schattschneider, Merilyn Boekelman, Linda Gant, Larry Hoeckel, Willie Taylor, Linda Parsons, Eldon Winkel, Diane Smith, Helen Ross, Bill Robinson, Janis Venteicher, Donald P.
