:IPAGE; FOUR—THE MORNING AVALANCHE Lubbock, Texas, Friday, March 13, 1942 Dial 4343 For The Avafonche-Journal Offices , """ " " O I "It " :is generally the idle who complain they cannot find time to dp which they fancy they 1 wish. * • * /CHINESE proverb: He who can\-> not smile ought not to keep a shop. * * * D EAR MISS TURNER: Please give us some information in regard to sugar. I have several friends who would like to have this information. 1 have a family of four and last fall I bought 100 pounds of sugar, I do not want to be a hoarder so what am I supposed to do with the sugar I have left? I had understood we were to sign up for what we had and not buy any more until all on hand was used up. But now so many are buying to hoard I'd like to be set right. A Reader. * * * D ' EAR READER: We talked to members of the Lubbock rationing board and learned the following: On the day that sugar rationing goes into effect, which will be sometime this month, you will be allowed to have on hand in your kitchen two pounds for each member of your family. Registration day is not far off so it was suggested that you take the remainder of the sugar back to the store where you purchased it and where your money will be refunded lor it. You will not be considered a hoarder if you return the sugar because there are many persons like you; persons who purchased commodities in large amounts last Jail before the war started. : Congratulations to you for being patriotic and earnest about the sugar deal and we are sure that you will be joined by many others in the approaching "Bring Your Sugar in" campaign. * + * TROUBLE, TROUBLE I F you are on the last pages of your income tax return you'd like a little fun in your reading this morning. We mentioned the ever lasting tilting between men and women in our Thursday column and this morning we offer •excerpts from the pens of two clever writers, Bud Kelland and 'Katharine Brush, to prove it. The theme of these little essays "is "The Trouble With Men" versus ;"The Trouble With Women." : * * * ' -Bud Kelland, writing on "Women ^-Trouble" says: •. The trouble with women is: •First, Hhey are too practical. If a •/woman comes out to help you look 'at the moonlight, you know she is 'mentally calculating how many :kilowatts the moon is wasting. If two horses are running in a •race, one named Security and one 'named Romance, you may be sure .her bet is on Security. When you 'meet a woman for the first time and she looks you over from top to ,toe, as she always does, and a soft C ubs Plan Future Socia s, Feature St. Patrick's Motifs Thu a- light of admiration glows in her eyes, it is not for your physique, but for your earning capacity. Second, they are too impractical. A woman will turn the thermostat up to seventy and then open all the windows to let in cold air. She does not perceive that this smacks o£ inconsistency. She is goddess of the installment system. Immediate possession outweighs a calendar full of days of reckoning. She would rather marry a good dancer than a good provider, and she would rather have a man jump f.o open a door than leap to open a bank account. The trouble with women is: You never can add one of them up twice and get the same sum. A ND now Katharine Brush dips her brush, pardon us, we mean her pin, in sarcastic green ink and writes: In the first place, men are noisy creatures — they are newspaper rattlers, and shower-bath singers, and door-bangers and snorers. And in the intervals between these uproars they say, "Can't we have a little quiet?" Men do not want to go out in the evenings, and then—once out —they do not want to come home. By the same token, they dislike to dress in evening clothes, but are enchanted with the way they look when you have finally talked them into doing so. They make fun of women for prinking in public, but they themselves cannot pass a mirror without a slackening of the footsteps and a glance at That Handsome Fellow. hibit in war and in sport is con- picuous by its absence when they are mildly ill in their beds at home vith one degree of fever. The per- onification of mortal terror, as a matter of fact, is a man removing thermometer from under his tongue and discovering that the mercury is even fractionally in the red ... Ah men! 1941 Club To Honor Husbands Wednesday For the purpDse of planning future socials, conducting bu5>ness meetings and featuring the St. Patrick's day motif in informal 1'eUowship hours, a number of organizations held meetings Thursday afternoon.
