TH E FAMILY CIRCLE
A class in school was once told to
make drawings to illustrate the
poem, “The Old Oaken Bucket” One
little boy covered his paper with
what looked like fly specks.
asked for an explanation, he said it
was to illustrate the line:
“And all the loved spots which my
Too many like that, of “loved
spots.” and not woven together into
a “family circle.” I like the idea of
the family “circle.” A circle is a
continuous and unending thing, and
stands in symbolism for complete
ness and perfection. There are no
outstanding points, no corners, no
sides, no base; but all submerged in
communistic equality, the identity of
each contributing tothe whole— the
One (¡»use of divorce is that the
members of the family have not sub
mitted themselves to the “give and
take” of joint life, have not sweat
and sacrificed and suffered hard
ships and laughed and played and
yearned and struggled and climbed
an saved and spent together. They
have not kept in such unison, as to
appreciate one another and see and
understand one another’s viewpoint
to want what one another wants, to
be ambitious for one aonther, to be
anxious for and patient with one
YOUR CHILDS FOOD
The child under seven years of age
should have his heaviest meal at
noon. He needs three meals a day
with plenty of time to eat each un
hurriedly. Start the school child in
with his dinner promptly, when he
arrives home at noon. He is sure to
come home hungry; and if you
do not serve him promptly, he will
not have time to eat his dinner in a
leisurely fashion. In too many fami
lies the child must wait for his din
ner until the family assembles, and
this is often too short a time before
school opens in the afternoon, an 1
the child must hurriedly gulp down
his heartiest meal. The result of this
is indigestion and d illness or a
heimache in the aftern >on.
Tie daily diet of eich child should
include at least a n’ l* of milk a
day. There should be an egg, or a
piece of meat or fish daily; or. if
none of these is used, an additional
Pint of milk should be given to take
its place. Cereal, bread and butter,
fruit and green vegetables, espec-
ially leafy vegetables, should be
served to the growing child each
Fortunate is the child who has a

another. It takes much pulling to
gether to knit a family into a circle.
In the olden times, the man was
“IT” in family life, and the woman
was his help-meet. Under feminism
some wives would want to be the
kite, with the husband the tail. In
many homes, the parents are strain
ing and giving their all to their chil
dren, neglecting the culture of their
own personalities and their contribu
tion to society. In a few, the parents
are riding on the top of the wave
and leaving their children to sink or
swim for all they are striving to
In the ideal modern home, the fam
ily is the family circle. “Each for
all and all for each.” No mine and
thine, no favoritisms, no rivalries—
but the family circle.
The secret of cultivating nnd pre
serving the family circle is for its
members to do things together, to
keep eye to eye and heart to heart,
by effort and sacrifices and victories
and joys shared. The family picnic,
the round robin letter, the family re
union, the helping one another thru
college, the radio listened to togeth
er, the family frolic and dance at
home, the songs sung together, the
sharing of the same dreams and
hopes, yes, and the prayers prayed
together at home. These will weld
the household into a family circle.
throw it carelessly over a chair, for
someone to sit down on, or to crush
in its own weight. The dress you
have worn is slightly, though im
perceptibly, damp with the moisture
of your body. To hank it up care
fully on a hanger and leave it
dangling over night from the chan
delier or a picture frame in the
room, before you put it away in the
closet, will keep it from becoming
so quickly wrinkled. Most mothers
need to teach their daughters the
habit of hanging up a dress on a
hanger the instant they take it off.
There are two groups of vege
tables: Strong juiced vegetables and
mild juiced vegetables. They should
be cooked in different ways.
strong juiced vegetables are cooked
incorrectly, they are disagreeable in
flavor. Such vegetables are: Cabbage,
cauliflower, onions and turnips.
These vegetables should be cooked
in a large amount of boiling water
and with a kettle uncovered that the
steam may escape.
As soon as the vegetables are
tender, the juice should be drained
from them, if you wish a delicate
flavor. If you prefer to preserve the
mineral salts, do not drain the juice
off, for the mineral salts are dis
solved in this liquid. Some careful
cooks use this liquid in soups. Do
not cook strong juiced vegetables
too long—only until tender.
Mild juiced vegetables, as carrots
j spinach, beets, peas, beans, potatoes
squash, parsnips, corn and celery,
should be cooked in a very small
amount of water and should be ser
ved in the water in which they are
cooked—except the potatoes and
squash, which should be dry and
mealy. Cover mild juiced vegetables
while they are cooking.
Vegetables may be diced and serv
ed with butter, creamed, scalloped,
baked or friend. F.scalloped onions
cabbage, tomatoes and peppers, and
celery are little known hut delicious
dishes. Baking or steaming vege

When a traveling salesman died
suddenly in Seattle, relatives wired
the florist to prepare a wreath in ac

“The ribbon should be extra wide,
with the inscription, ‘Rest in Peace’
on both sides, and if there is enough
room, ‘We Shall Meet in Heaven.’ ”
The florist was out of town and
his new assistant handled the job.
