W. FOUR—THE MORNING AVALANCHE ^ Lubbock, Texas, Friday, February 27, 1942 By Margaret Turner W E ONLY begin to realize the value ' of our possessions when we commence to do good to others with them.—Cook. * * * IN THE MAIL M ARC ARE" TURNER: May I say that the American citizen is not romplacent in regard io the war. Most of the people are using money, they owe on debts or could use for comforts needed by the family to buy stamps and bonds. Most of the families I know are making greater efforts to do more, raise more, work harder. We are giving our boys and I am sorry to say many a mother worries more over her son's morals in our army camps than she does his soldier's duly in foreign fields. I think the complacency is with the "higher ups" in. Washington. Why do they handle the strikers, the delayers, with such padded gloves? Why let the profiteers pad prices and the unions raise salaries? They have already added years t<? war and will take millions more of our boy?, not to mention the money part. Pearl Harbor and Singapore were complacent examples. Yes, we are awake to -the danger of war and we want the politicians to wake too. We also want enough soldiers left (and equipment to use) to portect our own country. A Housewife. • * * • "T\EAR HOUSEWIFE: We agree -L/ with you that the general public is awake to the possibility of this being a long war with great sacrifices necessary before complete defeat of brutal forces is realized. We know many people have become disheartened in noting the apparent lackadasical attitude ot our representatives in Washington. We have responded by buying stamps and bonds, by doing Red Cross work, by contributing time and money to soldier aio 1 and civilian morale. We have taken the rationing of tires and sugar, the freezing of cars in our stride. We are awaiting authoritative guidance and if our leaders will call upon us they will find us ready. Most of the people with whom we associate indicate they are ready and willing to meet any regulations that is imposed upon their way of life. They say they can take it; they can cut themselves down on everything, any product that is not an essential to living and breathing. ; « * » OFFERS CANARY S. F. O.

Buy A Detense Bond TODAYl writer, suggests that you give yourself a small break in the day's occupation. Next time you face a late afternoon overcrowded with responsibility and chores, and an evening of relaxation which you know will find you too fatigued to enjoy it, stop a moment and set aside a half hour for yourself before dinner. Use that half hour for glorifying force shower, first hot, then cold. Then take a critical look in the mirror. Dampen your bedraggled hair ends, pin or roll them into curls, tie a net turban on, and lie down. A warm beverage would help more, and you'd enjoy and profit by moistened cotton pads on the eyelids, and by a good cream or mask on your face. * * » CAT-NAP HELPS "JUTAYBE you will cat-nap—it's - 1 -'- 1 - the most efficient thing you can do. If you don't, you'll appreciate just lying there with your mind made up to pay ho attention whatsoever to "things to do" in your thoughts. Then get up and remove the cream, and apply fresh makeup and nail polish. Very likely you'll spend a relaxed, refreshing evening, and therefore will be truly fitter to function efficiently next day. » * * OPEAKING of cat-naps, we think ^-J they are wonderful if only you know how to take them. Two coworkers Thursday afternoon told the wrtier they enjoy short naps taken alter lunch; returning to work refreshed for the afternoon's work. The late William Jennings Bryan often napped during the day. It's an excellent habit for those who can learn the art of taking a short nap and then returning to their complete senses. As for us we feel drugged and often .lose a day's recollection if we try to follow the cat-nap plan. For Premiums make the simplest dishes complete]]' satisfying!
