tl AIM STEM BY JULIAN CHRISCHILLII (tan* * State Am*" IT S MUCH easier as a columnist to clip a humorous or interesting piece someone else has written and fill your al- loted space in the paper with it ... this we do today with the following words entitled, "Musings of a Good Father on a Bad Day" . . . author is unknown but we should credit Ray Stougaard of the Fairmont Sentinel for its use prior to our today's insertion: There's nothing sadder than a childless couple. It breaks your heart to see them stretched out relaxing around swimming pools in Florida, sitting all suntanned and miserable on the decks of their yachts, trotting off to Europe like lonesome fools. It's an empty life. There's nothing but more money to spend and more time to enjoy it. **""" The poor childless couple can't fight over a child's discipline, can't blame .each other for tneir child's nauseous characteristics and they miss all the fun of doing without for the child's sake. They go along from day to day — doing what they want, buying what they want and liking each other. It's a pretty pathetic picture. Everyone should have children. No one should be allowed to escape the wonderful experiences attached to each state of the devolpment of their young and its happy memories — the alert nights, coughing spells, debts, diaper deliveries, baby sitters, saturated mattresses, spilled food, tantrums, emergencies and never ending crisis. Then comes the fulfillment as the child grows like a little acorn and becomes a real nut. The wonder of watching your overweight ballerina making a fool of herself in a leotard.- The warm smile of a small lad with the sun glittering on 500 bucks worth of braces on his teeth, chomped to pieces by peanut brittle. How dismally vacant is the peaceful home without constant childish problems which make for a well rounded adult life .and an early breakdown — the tender, thoughtful discussions when report cards reveal the prodigy to be one step .below a halt-wit; the close knit family group making a mess around a fireplace to roast hot dogs and thumbs and new shoes. What a feeling of reward the first time you take the boy hunting. He didn't really mean to shoot you in the leg. The boy was excited. Remember how he cried? How sorry he was? How disappointed that you weren't a deer? These are . the moments a man treasures, captured forever in the heart— and in the. limp. What childless couple could ever share the stark drama of romantic adventure when their beautiful daughter elopes with the village idiot. Could a woman without children touch the strength of heroism of your wife as she tried to fling herself out of the bedroom window? It takes a father to attain the stature of standing by, ready and resolute to jump after THURSDAY, APRIL 29, IMS Titonka seniors to Minneapolis on "Skip Day" Titonka — The senior class of Titonka enjoyed their annual Skip Day Friday.

Auxiliary met,on her. You realize that after all, your baby girl is a woman with the mind of a pigmy. The childless couple lives in a. vacuum. They fill their lonely days with golf, vacations, dinner dates, civic affairs, tranquility, leisure and money. There is a terrifying emptiness without children and the childless couple is too comfortable to know it. You have to look at them to see what the years have done. He looks boyish, unlined and rested. She looks slim, well groomed and youthful. It isn't natural. If they had kids, they would look like the rest of us — tired, grey, wrinkled and sagging. In other words — Normal. **•**•»/•/»/•• ALWAYS FIRST QUALITY WHEN YOU SHOPPED TODAY...DID YOU GET TO PENNEY'S ANNUAL Many from area honored at SUI Iowa City — More than 1,250 students at the University will be recognized for outstanding academic achievement at an Honors Convocation May 1.
