OF* ACI A GREAT DEAL OF FUSS is being made nowadays about something called the Feminine Mystique. The way 1 get it is that a gal has to keep beating her brains out to prove she is a whole woman, and the only way to accomplish this is to use your brt-ins for something besides, or in addition to, raising kids and scrubbing floors. - o - ALL THE MAJOR MAGAZINES HAVE COVERED the subject fully and quite a few of the girls have talked back. Lots of them say they find keeping a house clean and pleasantly decorated, a husband reasonably happy on the leash, and producing children and keeping them short of turning into little monsters, (which Is their natural bent), all the fulfillment they can possibly handle. Let somebody else paint the pictures, negotiate the business mergers, research the new wonder drugs and write the best sellers I - o I'M INCLINED TO AGREE WITH the more domestic types In the Feminine Mystique. When the kids are little, they need their mothers, more than the business and professional world needs Mamma no matter how educated she is. Unless your talents can bring In five or six thousand dollars extra a year, enabling you to hire all your babysitting and housework done, forget about a Job until the kids all get Into school. But If you think Just because you don't have an outside Job, you'll have lots of time to mother your own little darlings, you are sadly mistaken. Mothers who "don't work" are sitting ducks for every charity drive, community committee, church program, ceramics class, voters service and taxi turn In existence. Plus that you soon get to the stage when you have to be a Den Mother, Girl Scout Leader, Vacation and Regular Church School Teacher, Junior Choir director and room mother. All of It absolutely without pay I - o - WHEN OUR KIDS WERE LITTLE, I was a so-called full time mother. That is, I didn't work outside the home for pay until they were pretty well along in school. I kept plenty busy, however, with varied and sundry activities and I'm not sure at this late date that I didn't take on some k of them less from community zeal than to get away from the kids for a while. And I developed all sorts of plans about what I'd do when the kids got a little older. - o - WHEN THE KIDS GOT OLDER, I planned mainly to sleep. None of this getting up In the night to get drinks of water, trips to the bathroom and soothing fears from nightmares. Not only would there be a nap every afternoon, I'd also sleep until 10 a. m. Saturdays, Sundays and holidays I And with time on my hands, I'd get my book published and syndicate my column. Without messy little finger prints on the woodwork, I'd keep the house. immaculate, substitute gournut meals for all those peanut butter sandwiches and I might even try for a career. Surely with my experience at settling fights I'd be eligible for the Peace Corps, and after the rousing success of the Kossuth Centennial Revue of 1954, I sort ot thought there might be some opening for me In the world of show business I - o - WELL, THE KIDS DID GET OLDER. And as they did I also acquired, not a career, but some paying Jobs, most of which I could do at home - newspaper reporting, secretarial work for the church, the column, writing and speaking assignments for clubs and anniversaries plus the everlasting and never finished housework. Although I didn't have time to think much about it, I guess according to the Feminine Mystique I must have been fulfilled. - o - THINGS CHANGED ABRUPTLY WHEN WE moved to Florida. For the first few weeks I reveled in all the free time, but then naps lost their glamour for I had caught up on my sleep. The house was about as clean as I cared to keep it, and although I was bursting with program ideas, there wasn't a club or church who'd ask me for my talent for either love or money. And! found with the pressure off, and lots of time to write, I simply am not a full time writer and I couldn't get much done even If there had been a place to publish It. Most of all I missed being around great gobs of kids - my own and everybody elses'. - o - AS WE SETTLED IN THINGS GOT better. 1 became pleasantly Involved In some activities. I could certainly use some extra monay but we'd have a roof and something to wear and eat If I didn't work. But those articles kept nudging me, telling me that now that the kids were practically reared It was high time I started fulfilling myself. So I started, rather half-heartedly to look for a job, and I ran across a whole bunch of handicaps. I discovered my chief asset In my Algona jobs had been knowing most of the people in town. I knew almost nobody here. I had at least two good offers but because I don't drive, I could not solve the transportation problem. Had some kindergarten offers, which sounded right up my alley, but I never did get around to getting my degree. I'd need a whole bunch of new clothes to replenish my wardrobe If I got a 9 to 5 Job and I'd almost certainly have to give up my writing, because I simply can't accomplish as much In this southern atmosphere as I did up north. - o - BUT I GRADUALLY DRIFTED INTO a career that seems to fit my needs. I can read, write, play the piano, cook if I care to, keep In touch with the younger generation and get paid for my time while doing sol The job is baby-sitting. It's not all gravy for there are plenty of times when I'd like to scream at the kids (just like In the old days), and It's undoubtedly not what the Feminine Mystique means when it speaks of fulfillment. But so far it suits me. - o - DURING THE WEEK OF August 29 through Sept. 4, people who have birthdays include Katie Cotton, Myrtle Morck, Jarlyn Struecker, Nadine Suilman, Lawrence Heiderscheidt, Clara Harig, Nell Anderson, Virginia Klein, Gail Sindelar, Robert Hutchlns, Jeffrey McGlnnis, Laurie Nan Bllsborough, Gary Horton, Merlon Baker, Howard Beardsley, Lois Dau, David Martin, Gregg Winkel, Margaret Heiderscheidt, Nancy Allen, Jon Andreasen, Clyde Bron- gon, Michael Zender, Jo Hardy, Larry Knoll, Carrie Durant, Bud Morck, Blanche Phillips, John Will, Clay Mowers, Mary Elbert, Mark Teeter, Mava Johnson, George Miller, Dale Yungeberg, Kent Tuttle, Fern Foster, T.
