. ?'-/&^i»"*^ l ' ! '"Vt&f.'•:.*'*'• '-•--• MORNING AVALANCHE W E hope the poet forgives us for paraphrasing a bit but we wonder: . O Winter, if wind cbrne Can Spring be far behind? * * • H ERE'S a bright idea for all the women who are running 'round chattering like crazy: Why don't you join a "Stay-Home- And- Mind- Your- Own "Business Club"? • » * SUGGESTIONS: Tis said hundreds of suggestions have poured in. on the research division of Britain's ministry of supply for helping to win the war. They have included such fantastic notions as bayonet boots for kicking the enemy around, to one'calling for nets to be spread out to catch d e s c ending enemy parachutists, with a bell to ring whenever one landed in one. * * • PETTICOAT rpHOSE who resent the passing J- of the bill creating the Women's Army Auxiliary corps seem to agree on one point; that is they say the women will not take the matter seriously enough. They seem to think that those who wiil volunteer for the corps will be a group of women with little else to do who are seeking a thrill and a uniform. The ones who are opposed to the bill (and many of them naturally enough are men) say it is silly and an affront to American manhood. A few young women say they do not like the idea of their sweethearts being surrounded with so much sweetness and light, especially when they 'the young women) are obliged to be so far away from the soldier. Our u n d erstanding of the WAAC is that it was not created to give a country club air to the army nor to provide feminine companions. There are many tasks connected with running an army which can be done just as thoroughly by women as by men. relieving the men for combat duty. There are many women in the United States who are anxious to do something more than knit a sweater or teach a first aid class to help their country in this crisis. The solution seems to be in the creation of the army auxiliary corps. * * * rpo say that women cannot for- 1 - get themselves when a vital issue is at stake is to show that either your acquaintance is limited or that you know little of the history of our country. The Wo- Pull the Trigger on Constipation, with Ease for Stomach, too When constipation brings on discpm- fort after meals, stomach upset, bloating. ' dizzy_spell!, gas, coated tongue, and bad breath, your stomach is probably "crying the blues" because your bowels don't move. It calls for Laxative-Senna to pull the trigger on those lazy bowels, combined with Syrup Pepsin for perfect ease to your stomach in taking.. For years, many Doctors have given pepsin preparations in their prescriptions to make medicine more agreeable to a touchy- stomach. So be sure your laxative contains Syrup Pepsin. Insist on Dr. Caldwell's .'Laxative Senna combined with Syrup Pepsin. See how wonderfully the Laxative Senna wakes up lazy nerves and muscles in your intestines to bring welcome relief from constipation. And the good old Syrup Pepsin makes this laxative so comfortable and easy on your stomach. Even finicky children love the taste of this pleasant family laxative. Take Dr. Cald well's Laxative Sennacom- bined with Syrup Pepsin, as directed on label or as your doctor advises, and feel v?o rld'sbetter. Ge t genuine Dr. Cald wcl I's. man's Angle could make a list of dozens of women between the ages of 21 and 44 who would make grand soldiers; women whose mothers and grandmothers were pioneers of this section. These womrrt fo whom we refer are those who have grown tired of the slowness of the war effort; who feel that they must get in and accomplish something with their own hands and brains. They can face an emergency as well" as a man; they don't mind soiling their hands in doing work and they tan do without meals and iuxurie* with the best of them. What if later, after the emergency is past and a few hour.-, of normal living is possible, they call for powder puff and lipsiick? That my friends is just a trait that may be traced through all femininity! They want to help carry on. They don't think of themselves in heroic terms. Just by quiet decency, devotion and" volunteer duty they want to keep American a going business. Why not give them a break? * * • TODAY'S GAG OUCH was Thomas A. Edison's ^ power of concentration that once in the early years before he became famous, he was lined up to pay his taxes when his mind became wrapped up in some problems connected with the telegraph. Suddenly finding himself before the tax gatherer's window, he was asked his name. and for the life of him he couldn't remember it. The nettled tax clerk ordered him to the end of the line to give him a chance to recall his name. * « * HOSIERY CARE A T least three factors are im•\*- portant in getting good service from stockings: purchasing, washing and handling. Do buy the right size—that means leg length and width as well as foot size. And do buy the type of stockings for the kind, of wear you intend to give them—sheer for dress-up, service for general wear. Wash your hosiery with warm water and mild, ssfe-for-stocking soap. Be careful not to snag on rings and in putting them on adjust them carefully in order not to overstrain the stocking in any one place. A padded box is a fine place to keep them. G. A.

New Deal Club The New Deal Junior 4-H club reported a total of $1,135 of defense stamps and bonds purchased by members of their families. Every club girl has a stamp book. Miss Keeier demonstrated an improvised dressing table and simple scarfs for it that can be made at home. A dresser scarf can either make a room appear duU or gay, she told the girls. A cheerful bedroom plays a big part in starting the day off right for any child or parent, says the agent. Cooper Club The Cooper 4-H club met at the Cooper school this week with Joy Timms; president, in charge. Dorotha Chism, song leader, led the group in the singing of "God Bless America." "Last year's garden patch must be turned into a Victory Garden this year," Miss Keeter said. A garden must be well planned in order for one to receive the best results. Miss Keeter urged the club members to devote a little time to the converting of scrap lumber^into useful articles for the home. "Lefs don t neglect our homes during the war," she explained. Senior 4-H Club "An inexpensive dressing table made at home gives 4-H club girls an opportunity to express their personality," the assistant home demonstration agent told members of the New Deal 4-H club. During the business meeting Victory activities, such as collecting paper, iron, rubber and the biu-- mg of defense bonds and stamps were discussed. The importance of planting frame gardens as soon as possible ! n u,° ra< ; r to P rov 'de fresh vege- tables.for the family table earlier was stressed. - Rc«coe \V!l;on P-TA, 3:10 p. ra.. school.
