EDITORIAL COMMENT . . . THE BART LETT?" TRIBUNE
Friday May 2 1952
Home Demonstration Clubs
h The Spotlight This Week
Observance of National Home Demonstration Club Week
this week draws attention to the work tHat is being done by these
groups of women mostly wives and mothers to improve home
conditions. They go about their work without a great deal of
fanfare but their accomplishments are endless.
Their principal work as the name implies is home dem-
onstrations but if the local organization is an example of the rest
they find time for a lot of civic work also. During the past year
the local group has worked with the Red Cross drive the Polio
drive has prepared cookies and gifts for patients at McCloskey
and Fort Hood hospitals has sent individual gifts to inmates of
the State hosptal has sponsored various 4-H Club projects lias
entered clothing displays in local fairs and has sent delegates to
district and state conventions.
Only a homemaker could fully understand and appreciate
the club's many projects during its eleven year history in Bart
lett. They have included home management family entertain
ment attractive food preparation furniture refimshing rug
making feather comfort making home tailoring slip cover mak-
ing furniture upholstering pattern fitting and altering purse
making correct home wiring orchard planting 'budding and
grafting poultry ihouse equipment seed potatoes cabinets and
storage space preparing food for the deep freeze shrub planting
and care gardening canning drapery making handicraft and
No man would ever attempt the projects that these women
accept as part of their every day home life. Men may pride them-
selves on their professions and business careers and for some
reason women are beginning to pattern after them but they
would never be equal to the requirements of the proud title

Correct Posture Week
Stand tall sit tall walk tall and sleep tall advise mem-
bers of the Chiropractic profession who are sponsoring Correct
Posture Week beginning May 1 and continuing through May 7.
Try it sometime and see how much better your posture is.
Our mechanical and industrial age has contributed to
postural defects produced through work requiring the same action
by the same muscles day after day for long periods of time and
-we need to give heed to the advice to sit tall stand tall walk tall
and sleep tall.
Postural distortions in children are even said to be caused
in many instances (by .parents setting a bad example which is
followed by the children. Parents should check on themselves in
this respect then not only for their own betterment but to avoid
passing a bad influence on to their children.
If Correct Posture Week alerts us to the importance of good
posture it will have served a good purpose. If a consciousness of
good posture can be developed this week it may remain with us
throughout the year and throughout our lifetime.

Things sure change a "few"
years ago when we were dating
if a girl didn't come in from a
date at the designated hour she
would swnnr that thev had a flat
or motor trouble. These days
the girj drops by to taice tne uoy
friend for a spinn in her car and
what happens? The car gives out
of gasoline. Just ask Doyle Mc-
Glothlin I hear he has had such
an experience recently.
Horace Keith has assigned the
employees at the Bartlett Coop
new duties since moving into
the new building. Iva Moor was
asked to defrost the new refrig-
erator in the all electric kitchen
once a week. She told him she
didn't even do that at home as
her mother Mrs. C. A. Mod-
esette took care of that. She is
worried as to how to defrost a
refrigerator-so has decided to
just pull the plug. Will her face
turn red when she learns that all
the new models are defrosted
automatically. It's odd how some
people her age can be so dumb
about house work.
Ed Nauert commented "Luke
Clemons and Bill Cox comb their
hair just alike" both are free
of hair so 'they have no trouble.
Veda Daude is ready for an-
other fishing trip. On her birth-
day Sunday she received just the
proper fishing cap a "Whopper
Stopper" fishing lure and a cork
stopper to use when the "Whop-
per stopper" doesn't stop them.
along with a timely card on fish-
ing suggestions. She is really
going to make the husband Al-
bert look like a sap when she
brings her next catch home.

We have a picture of Mrs. Cy
Young which we intended to run
with 'her husband's picture in
"Know Your Neighbor" this
week but she saw it and would-
n't let us print it. All we can say
is that even in this day of young
grandmothers you can hardly
expect one's picture to look like
a high school beauty page.
Sheridan Cavitt . has some
Rhode Island Reds of which he
is very proud. His wife says he
is prouder of them than he is of
her but anyway one of them
laid a beautiful brown egs this
week that measured 6 inches
around one way and 7 around
the other and he took it over to
his neighbor Mrs. Anna Zapalac
to brag a little. Mi's. Zapalac also
has some prize hens of which
