POUR—THE MORNING AVALANCHE •-' ('• """"" gclCf.. Texas, Friday, February 13, 1942 W ARS are not entirely fought or' won o the attle .fields bu won on the battle .fields, but also at home by those who realize that only in unity is there strength. * + A ON VALENTINES S TARS and . Stripes have merged with hearts and flowers as America celebrates the first Valentine's day of the new World war. Patriotism and sentiment are all mixed up in the hearts or the girls- at-home, and star-spangled . Valanetines are the order of the day. Newest trick of. the season is the remembrance ring, B sentimental revival of. an old Victorian custom. When Johnny goes marching to way he sends his best girl a ring to remember him by. It's not ar. engagement ring, and it's not expensive. It's just something to say, "I hope you'll wait for me." * * * BUYING STAMPS P UPILS at Dupre school have bought over S100 worth of defense stamps this week and several interesting incidents concerning their purchases were related by Mrs. Mary Power, teacher of room 108. For instance, Charles Brewer was pulling and tugging at a loose tooth the other morning. His teacher wished that he would wait until he got home to pull his tooth but he couldn't let it alone. Suddenly he jumped up and yelled, "Oh boy, I got It out! I'm going to put it under my pillow and get a dime to buy a" defense stamp." David Rutledge, in this same room,, brought his stamp book to school and said, "I want to {ill jer up!" He said his little sister, Sandy, cried because David has more defense stamps than she has David explained, "She likes candy too much." George William Berry brought a dollar bill and 60 cents in coin to school in a bill fold of his own which he proudly explained as he pulled the .bill fold out of his hip pocket, "I want defense stamps witn every penny of it. I saved It put.of my weekly allowance. I don t like any kind of candv except penny candy any more'" * + « DANCE MANNERS , TF YOU'RE hep to the jive, you'll V- bend an ear to the advice of Tony and Sally De Marco, those out-ol-this world ballroom dancer* and mend your dance manners'. There are rules,"even for jitterbugs: 1. Its' ridic to apologize for your-dancing. Just catch on to the down beat and do your best 8. If you miss a step it's the woman who says "I'm sorry." 9. Don't quarrel on the dance floor. If you don't like each other, don't dance together. 10. Don't sing in your partner's ear. Let the orchestra supply the music. 11. Have fun. « * * FAMILY BUDGET A LL of the househould budgets •"- we have ever seen were inadequate to a certain degree. Eternally there are unexpected occurrences arising which cannot accurately be listed under groceries, meals out, household bills, books, drugs or rent. What women is there who has not wondered where she could list "Junior's broken arm," "replacing rake which we borrowed from neighbor's and which someone borrowed from us," "Aunt Mary's unexpected week end visit," etc. etc. Well, today we heard of a clever solution to this budget problem. Head a column "Such is Life" and dump all of your emergencies and. "heaven knows- what" items there. It will save your nerves wear and tear and make balancing the budget easier. PLANTING SEEDS MRS. MICHAEL BYNUM - LVJ - says She plants sweetpea seeds each Valentine's day, buying the seed from Lubbock merchants. She has found the flowers do better if you plant them just a trifle deeper than J s -suggested on the packet directions. * * » _.SHORTS AND SLACKS TJLAY colthes show a change in x their length and breadth this season. More material goes into snorts and this should be pleasant news for the girls who wanted to, but couldn't wear them as brief as theyve been.
