He'd serer bees too muci of a.'beli'avior yrobleni in school or Sunday Sciool, bat «ten ve had tie seetiags irj his own hone liitii his OTH-S mother ridiag herd, he turned out to be the meanest kid Is the banch. The Dea Mother's Manual haca't warned me oa that oae. The manual did say that the secret of a successful den was to keep the boys busy. They were so right. My trouble was that I never have been any good at handicraft. How caa you teach kids to make genuine Indian drums out of tin cans and old inner tubes when you can't do it yourself ? MOST OF THE THINGS I THOUGHT UP turned out to be un- believaHy- messy or they fell apart when we displayed them at Pack Meeting. There was the time I let them bake and frost cupcakes. And the Christmas candles we molded and covered with hand-wuipped paraffin. There may still be blobs of wax in my Algona kitchen from that project. IT WAS ON AN EXTREMELY RAINY afternoon that my most hectic experience at den mothering came. Jeanie was only three so, of course, she attended all den meetings as a kind of unofficial mascot, and that particular day, Jack Waller, then an infant, was staying with us also. - o - THE CUBS LITERALLY DRIFTED IN on sheets of rain. All of them were ravenously hungry but the cub assigned to bring the treats had forgotten to tell his mother it was his turn. So to provide emergency rations I got out the corn popper. The Cubs were sitting in the other end of the kitchen making something from rubber bands. Popcorn, they found, can be good sling shot ammunition. The baby decided he didn't like it in the playpen and started to howl. The Cubs yelled with glee every time they hit a target and Jeanie urgently reminded me she had to go to the bathroom. It was then that the kitchen ceiling started to leak. - o - DEN MOTHER BEGAN MOPPING frantically while the third batch of popcorn burned to a crisp on the stove. There was no danger of fire for by this time the leak in the ceiling had increased to a real deluge. The boys fought on with more abandon, uslag whole handsful of popcorn. It was about as close to absolute bedlam as I ever hope to be. However, the Cubs considered it one of our more successful meetings. - o - WHILE OUR DEN WAS RATHER short on handicraft exhibits for Pack Meeting, we were pretty good at skits. Den Mother wrote plays for the boys to produce in a desperate attempt to keep them busy. Surprisingly, the kids seemed to like these projects and they turned out to be a bunch of hams I Our high point came when we were asked to give our Centennial skit at the Charity Ball In 1954. - o - MY CUBS ARE ALL PRETTY WELL grown up now and a wonderful bunch of young men. Some of them are taking advanced work In college, a couple of them are in service and several have married and are producing potential Cub Scouts. I shall always be interested In these boys and to be honest about it, although the experience was rugged, I gained more from it than I put into it. - o - BUT I STILL THINK THAT award pin they give Den Mothers at the end of their three years of service has quite a bit of resemblance to, and is fully as significant as, the Purple Heart. - o - LAST EVENING WE ENJOYED AN ALL too short visit from Estel and Selma Rentz, former Burt residents, now of Crystal River, Ha. They are sliirt-taU relatives, their son, Russ, having married Father's cousin, Vaunita. They had been down to Puuta Gordo, where, I understand there are several ex-Burt residents. - o - DURING THE WEEK OF Feb. 2 through Feb. 7, people having birthdays Include Violet Benschoter, Danny Merrymau, Michelle Christian, Joe Geelan, Edna Cruikshank, Barbara Percival, Jim Jorgeiison, Veda Murtagh, John Goodman, Pamela Hansen, David Strohman, Bahne Struecker, Carl Hutchins, Dorothy Zeigler, Elgin Allen, Bruce Bierstedt, Ginny Taylor, Rod Ricklefs, Gary Hagen, Ida Mae Baxter, Jim Martin, Dorothy Funk, Geraldine Rowley, Cathy Cowan, Michael Rooney, BUI Smith, Jim Finn, Chloe Sheakley, and Mary Melissa Harmon.
