STATE ALGONA . . i .1 • v - _ ; IT SEEMS AS IK YOU can't pick up a newspaper these days without reading some horrihle news-. There's the Cuhan crisis, the situation in India, and the riots in Mississippi Rut the most terrifying news of all to mr was something thai appeared in a story last week. Some guy in England says that long underwear is coming into fashion! THIS FASHION FOHF.C ASTER SAYS thai I he long.handled drawers are sure to he popular The reason he gives for his predirtion is that long underwear is both warm and sexy looking 1 Warm, they arc — 1 know from hitter experience. They are sensible also and a wonderful protection againsl the winter cold'. Bui sexy" If long underwear is sexy looking, so is a wet noodle. IT COULD VERY \VKLI. HF. that I have some sort of an obsession about wooly undergarments. You see, 1 was either horn too early or I had my tonsils out too late. Long underwear was beginning to go out of fashion when I was an early teenager and not everybody iny age had to wear it. But. because 1 was extremely subject to tonsilitis, it seemed sensible to my mother to keep me dressed as warmly as possible during the winter. So I had long underwear and I fell about the same way about it as the devil must feel about holy water. To this very day, when I am having a particularly bad nightmare, I don't dream that I am stark naked out in public as most normal people do. I dream I am wearing long underwear! MANY WAS THE TIMK DURING MY years of torture that I quickly dressed in the gym shower to prevent my contemporaries finding out about my shame. 1 will say, though, that Mother tried to lake some of the sting out of her underwear ordinance. She finally let me wear sleeveless underwear and the legs were knee length. A couple of suits of the darn things were even flesh pink to make up for the nated knitted warmth. But to me, they were long underwear and nothing could take the disgrace out of wearing them. IT WASN'T SO HAD WIIF.N I WAS younger. Then wearing long underwear was an accepted routine part of an Iowa winter. Everybody wore them because we didn't have snow pants or tights like the kids nowadays have. However, there was one girl in my fifth grade class who wore knee length socks all winter. But then she was considered :|uite fast anyway because she came from Chicago. Her legs never lost that peculiar blue tinge the whole blamed winter. * * * AS I REMEMRER IT, TWO sets of long underwear was standard equipment for children. One was to be worn; the other set was in the wash. We bathed Wednesday and Saturday evenings and the next morning we were issued clean underwear. We lapped the legs of the underwear over to fit under our long stockings. Our legs looked quite smooth on Thursdays and Sundays, but by Wednesday and Saturday there were lots of lumps under our stockings. * * * EVERYDAY STOCKINGS WERE APT to be black cotton; Sunday best ones sometimes were tan ribbed. There were elastic tabs on the sides of the underwear. We ran the safety pin on the tops of our gar- tori; through a little metal dingus on the tabs and that way kept up the stockings. Before winter was over, the tabs usually gave way. Then we pinned the garters directly to the underwear, often resulting in a scries of holes on the sides of the garment. * # * AT THE FIRST SIGN OF SPRING IN those days, (he kids sneaked out of the house with their long underwear legs rolled up. Then came the time when it was not quite warm enough to go into Union suits or black sateen bloomers, but you could tell summer was on the way if Mamma got out the scissors and trimmed off the legs of the underwear. They were never good for another season anyway, and knitted underwear makes wonderful dust rags. * * * I WILL AGREE WITH OUR ENGLISH writer that long underwear is warm, but to my dying day I shall deny that they are sexy. I can't see how they will ever be willingly worn, let alone popular. But I've been wrong about these things before. Especially in the case of pointed- toe shoes. I remember laughing myself half sick over a pair I once found in an attic. The next time I saw them they were considered the latest thing! * * * EVEN THOUGH POINTED SHOES have been in fashion for several years, 1 am not yet convinced they are good looking. Our daughters, however, think any shoe toe that is the least bit rounded is absolutely ridiculous. So, I'll not be too surprised if one day they come home bearing a package saying, "Gee, Mom, see what I jus't bought! They're the latest thing and are they ever neat!" In that package will probably be long underwear. + * # I HAD A GRAND TIME working at the polls at the election Tuesday. Haven't talked with so many people for a long time. Eva Smith was pinning feathers for the League of Women Voters and she told me a fish story that is too good to keep. The Smiths and Doc and Matt Scanlan were fishing in Wisconsin a few weeks back. Slim and Doc got an Indian guide and went out for the day so the girls decided to get another Indian guide and go out themselves. Eva caught a 12 pound Muskie! What's more, she landed it all by herself with only a little verbal encouragement from the guide. The men came home empty—handed. Eva's husband, Slim was incredulous at the catch. He said, "Here I've been fishing for :iO years, trying to catch a Muskie, and you go and land one on your very first try!" * * * I DOUBT IF ANY OTHER woman in the state can match the record of Hortense Ferguson at working at the polls Mrs Ferguson, who is well into her eighties, has worked the elections for :ti years! She's usually the first one there and the last one to leave. But. Mrs Ferguson wasn't the oldest voter in first ward. That honor belongs to George Winter. He cast his ballot unassisted, and was not an absentee voter. Mr. Winter is almost 91. * * « THE MAIL THIS WEEK brought a letter from Margaret Frasor expressing in rhyme her thoughts on our moving to Florida. She says in part, "Keep on with your column, we'd miss it you know, if it wasn't in the paper every week or so Tell us about Florida and your sun tan. And all about the fish you didn't land " * « * THIS WEEK'S RECIPE IS for Cocoa Cake It comes from Mrs. Anna Smith. 2 eggs, beaten 1 cup sour cream 1 tsp. vanilla Beat these three ingredients together well. To the mixture add the following ingredients sifted together: 1 cup sugar 1 cup flour 1 tsp. soda 3 heaping tblsp. cocoa Stir vigorously and bake in a loaf pan 30 minutes at 350 degrees. The recipe may be doubled for a layer cake. Grace. Swea and Eagle Susan Sullivan, who attends F.s- therville Junior College, spent the weekend at the home of her par ents.
