Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta March 1971 THf IfTHSIIIDOl HWAtB Margaret Luckhwst Spring trials of a light housekeeper Focus on the OTHER day I told my neighbor I couldnt go to a fashion show with her because I was about to begin my spring My arent you the ambitious she said admiringly thats what getting out into the workaday world has done for youve become ever so much better organized I won der if I should join the labor Hold I admonished Its last years spring cleaning Im talking havent even got that done let alone last So Im not one whit better organized than Ive ever I realized I was a couple of seasons behind in housecleaning after that false spring a couple of weeks I found we couldnt see objects outdoors clearly because the windows were so It makes me feel better to see so many dirty cars going my husband said as he glanced out our livingroom win every car seems to need an hour or two at the car just as ours Oh I dont I re marked I think it you look closely youll see the dirt is nearer than you like maybe on our He immediately changed the which verified my suspicions about the as he no doubt thought Id launch into a windowcleaning which he thoroughly Last time he leered for the which he claimed was both scientific and he had simply turned the garden hose on full blast on all the The dirt poured off all in great smeary but water leaked through two bed room windowsills reducing the plaster to smelly It had cost for I think my disenchantment with biannual housecleaning projects stems from my youth when my mother carried out her cleaning campaigns with all the drive of a sergeant on the The whole family was conscripted into the with the exception of father who had long since received his honorable discharge from ac tive The enemy was and our weapons were pails and bottles and jars of cleaning who usually had a pleasant became militant and overbearing for the dura tion of the and until the enemy was We kids would hustle back and forth in the trenches of piled and any slack ness or whispered suggestion of nipping AWOL was likely to be met with a slap of a dishtpwel on the back of our We did not have the equip ment for cleaning which makes todays housework seem like a No one had vacuum cleaners so nigs were hauled out and draped over the clothesline where great clouds of dust were beaten out of them with flat rugbeaters which Im sure cant be found in museums There were no instant shine waxes or polishes and the high shine on floors and furniture was the result of the application of plenty of elbow grease and The whole house was gone over from top to cup boards were turned out and tilings no longer useful for us packed into mission boxes which were delivered to the Ladies Aid who forwarded them to appropriate outposts in some remote part of the There were times when mothers gen erosity gave rise to as when she consigned water basins and jerries be queathed earlier by her to a box clearly marked for our mission in My sister They wont know what to do with any of those things she in the fust place the natives wash in the and in the second they dont have beds to slide those pots The missionaries will find them useful mother replied any one of them would be dandy to plant geraniums in that gives a little touch of Goodhearted though mothers intentions were I have always entertained a minor suspicion that her dubious when multiplied in many house holds across the probably did a lot to direct the whole mission program into the pre carious position it is in The whole housecleaning operation took the better part of a and when it was all mother would relax with a look of triumph in her the troops were called off and the enemy laid low tempor Spring of course was the major but in the fall when the harvest was there were light relatively minor by compari but necessary to keep the enemy at bay over the There are some things we might look back on in the good old days with real but one of for house wives at any is not house keeping each time I set out to demoth cup boards or wash my dripdry curtains I praise progress for all the wonderful appliances we now As a matter of we dont need to gangup on the clean ing the way our mothers did because the efficiency of mod ern equipment makes it possi ble for us to do a pretty good job week week But there are pitfalls in this method Because of my reliable I find it easy to keep putting things Then Im forced into washing mitts and scarves in August when they should have been done in I also have a nasty habit of kidding myself out of dusting simply by lowering the shades and removing my glasses everything looks quite neat and tidy About once a year I turn out my mending and my husband and I go through the regular old dialogue He What are you doing with that pile of socks and shirts Me The socks need mending and the shirts need buttons so Im making up a box for the church they patch every thing He Why dont you patch every thing up Me Because if I youd have to wear them all and you and I know you dont want to do that During my annual cleaning T usually take the opportunity of moving the furniture because after doesnt a room get boiing with every thing in the same place all the time My husband dislikes changes however and always goes into a big hoohaw over Whats the organ doing under the window he asked recently after a major reshuf I pushed it By vourself Sure For a girl who constantly complains cf tired there are times when Im convinced you could go a couple of rounds with Ali End come out all right And what is my clwir doing way over there It looks nice but theres no plus near it for my Thats Ive e o t it linked to an extention that runs around the dining under the under the rug at that end of the and plugs into the outlet in the now that youve had your spring lets get everything back to their origin al place before the fire depart ment comes around and plunks a condemned sign on the front like spring clean sometimes can be an awful But Ive got last years spring cleaning Now Ive got to figure out a way to cacch up on this Or maybe it would be better if 1 just started on in that way I may even get ahead of the Or would I The spring sentinel Pholo by Walter Kerber Book reviews Man must live without boundaries Bonmlarics Psychological Man in Revolution by Robert Jay Litton

Jim Boutons career in base ball in particular the 1969 sea my attitude Why not tell the truth about baseball and its players After all they are sold to us as idols men to look up If its not if these
