V-Algono (la.) Upptr DM Motnej Thursday, June 27, 1957 Film producer Mike Todd and his wife, Elizabeth Taylor, had a - tiff Friday. It really wasn't much of a spat as husband and . wife battles go, but the whole thing happened in the waiting room of a London airport and some press photographers were there with a roll of unexposed film so it sure made the papers. - • • • Now, Elizabeth Taylor is mighty good looking and I just - love to watch her act in the movies. Her Kusband, Michael Todd is, according to everything - I've heard, talented in his work, too, and quite personable. But their technique in squabbling needs a little developing for the J rhubarb they had Friday was . merely enough to keep the newspapers supplied with copy for ,' three issues. Surely, after chang- - ing marriage partners two or - three times each, Elizabeth and Michael could do better than that! • * * If Mr and Mrs Todd only knsw it, they could have at their disposal, advice from an amateur authority on marital spats. The knowledge has been gained chiefly through- observing many tiffs —t, , between married couple friends plus being one of the combatants in some pretty good skirmishes at her own home. If the Todds would accept this advice, which is hereby offered free of charge, they could make their battles really knock-down-and-drag-out, instead of that anemic little fracas they had Friday. • • • In ib.a first place, the wailing room of an airport is not a very good setting for a' husband and wife fight. If you want it to be a really good one with no holds barred, there's no place 1 like home. Witnesses are very distracting in the arena and the very best battles are conducted when the pugilists are a.'one. If somebody is with you when the action starts, he's sure to be a person who fancies himself as a referee or an intercessor and although the flame is wetted down, the coals of resentment remain to flare up later. « • • Even the presence of small-fry cramps the style in a matrimonial melee for although they may be little they have awfully big ears and if Mama has to keep telling Papa for goodness sake stop yell- This Pony, Saddle, Bridle Will Be Given Away FREE To Some LUCKY PERSON At Our 2nd Annual 4th of July Celebration at Kossuth Fairgrounds SCHU NEW & USED CARS Premium Gas for Less & Premiums, Too I ing or you'll wake up the kids, I some of the free and easy feeling ' has already gone out of the fray. In some instances, the old maxim that practice makes perfect is true but it does not apply- to family fights. Nagging and bickering can be the build-up to a battle but if they are practiced regularly from day to day they act like a slow leak in the boilei and when the time comes for a really big blow-off all that is left is a little spurt. Most of the really historic marital clashes come after a long period of armed truce when both sides have been practicing pacifism. All ol a sudden something just has to give and the skirmish that results is a doozy. But it sure does clear the air! * • « The deadliest form of marital hostilities is the cold war. When Mama doesn't speak to Papa for weeks at a time except to ask him to pass the butter and if Papa stays down at s the office or put with the boys °so much he isn't home long enough to have a good argument let alone show any affection, then the state of the family is really in danger Ice can preserve but it makes anything enclosed in it unapproachable while fire, though it can destroy, can also cleanse and give the chance to start over again. * * ' • The nicest part of any argument between people who genuinely care a lot for each other is the making up. It doesn't really matter which of the partners first holds out the olive branch, the renewed harmony is all the sweeter for once having been disturbed. But I have learned one thing from fne tiffs at our house (which honestly have been remarkably infrequent) that a woman should never, never expect her 'husband to make an apology. He may have been as wrong a? Jingle Bells on the Fourth of July and as sorry as he can be. But he is not going to say so and we might just as well face it! * * * I hope thai Michael Todd and Elizabeth Taylor have already kis.=ed and made up and that their differences will always be as minor as the ones they had last Friday. I can't for the life of me see how any man could stay mad at Liz very long what with those beautiful violet eyes and that magnificent figure. But 1 must admit that I have one thing that Elizabeth Taylor does not have even with the shape I'm in. When I blow tip and pop off at my Old Man it isn't going to get plastered all over the papers. • * * r A lot of people in Algona were saddened this week when the news came of the sudden death of John G. McDowell at Madison, Wis. He was high school principal here from 1932 until 1943 and when graduates' of that era get together, Mr McDowell's name has always been sure to be mentioned. I have yet to find anyone who didn't regard him affectionately. • • • Allowing for certain embellishments of memory, Mr McDowel! seems to have accidentally stepped into the classroom wastebasket at least once during every year he taught at Algona high. His forgetfulness of self during a discussion was monumental and although we now laugh at this little bit of human nature most of us have retained a few of the things he was trying to pound into our skulls. He always encouraged the inquiring mind and although he stood fast upon his own principles and was quick to point them' out to us, if any young sprout showed signs of intellectual curiosity he had the go ahead signal from John Mc-Dowell. » * * His summons to the principal's office were masterpieces in disciplinary practices for Mr McDowell was so darned nice about bawling us out that we always left there feeling sorry for him because he call us down in the first place. The statistics show that Mr McDowell has passed on and the sympathy of all who knew him are with his wife and children. But he isn't really dead so long as the hundreds of ideas both big and little remain in the hearts and minds of his pupils. • * * Strawberry season is here. The people with patches of their own have quite a time getting at therrl before the birds do, but if they do win the race the recent rains have made the berries large and uelicious. So this week's recipe is for strawberry cream pie even though I don't see much excuse for eating the berries whole and delicious just as they 'come from the patch. 1 cup sugars 6 tablsp. cornstarch % teasp. salt 2H cups milk, scalded 2 slightly beaten eggs 3 tablsp. butter % teasp. vanilla 1, 9-inch baked pastry shell 1 pint strawberries 1 cup heavy cream whipped. Mix sugar .cornstarch and salt; gradually add milk and cook in double boiler until thick. Add small amount of/hot mixture to eggs; stir into remaining hot mixture. Cook until thick, stirring constantly. Remove from heal; add butter and vanilla. Chill. Pour into pastry shell. Spread with halved .or sliced strawberries. Chill. Spread with whipped cream, sweetened to taste, just before serving. Garnish with halved berries. —GRACE.
