FOUR—THE MORNING AVALANCHE Lubbock, Texas, Thursday, April 2, 1942 Dial 4343 For The Avcfanehe-Jouimel Office* 'ts By Margaret Turner Easter Motif Is Featured In Club Social Hours QUGGESTION for us to adopt • M as a slogan: "If sleeping, wake, If feasting, rise" from John In- calls' poem. "Opportunity." I *.. * * . , YOUNGER SET WISH ^ou would write something 'about t!ie unbecoming conduct of many young people when they are being entertained in homes'," a friend said the other day. "I would mention it in parent-teacher association meeting," she continued," only I am afraid I would offend the mothers of triy .daughter's friends." Our-friend went on to tell us that recently she allowed her daughter • to entertain a few friends in the early evening. After the party was over she discovered that the furniture had been scarred, the room rendered in a topsy turvy shape and the outside handle on the door torn off. An explanation of the latter "accident" was that, a boy who had not been invited had tried to.get in with the result that the handle came loose" in his hand. "It seems to me," said our friend, "that the present group of young people is oblivious to rights of others. I cannot help but wonder how they act «t home while I certainly caii tell you hosv they act at parties. "I have always said that I want my children to feel free to have their'friends in at any time but I am about to change rny mind. I have wondered about this question Quite a bit since I heard a woman, a'lso a mother,, say "Let someone else entertain those young heathens, I wouldn't have them in my house for anything." * * * FEDERATION FUND Federation has purchased ^ 55 pairs of shoes and 44 pairs of stockings for underprivileged school children this year. The fund is low at present and they are asking clubs affiliated with the organization and other interested individuals to donate to the fund. Mrs. George Berry, president of the Federation, will receive the donations. There is $6.29 in the shoe fund at present and Wednesday afternoon Mrs. Berry, up from a spell with sinus trouble was wondering how she coulc buy the six pairs of shoes tha 1 she has had calls for lately. This year the Federation spen $177.83 for the shoes, including three -specially built pairs for children with deformed feet. There isn't as much work fo the children's fathers as earlier in the year when cotton picking wa still available and sickness in many, homes has taken .monej that ordinarily would, be spen for clothing, Mrs. Berry said. Those who would like to con tribute; to this worth while fum are invited to-get in touch wit! Mrs.' Berry. .. : ••'-..
