TATEM District Home Economist Once upon a time in Holland there was a young girl who was very much in love. Her beloved was very poor because he gave so much to the needy. As a result, her father firmly opposed the match. The young couple's friends wanted to he'p, so they "showered" the girl with gifts which more than made up dowry. The custom the value of the caught on and Robert F. Jenkins, left, executive director of Boy Scouts of Canada, receiving a cheque for from George Lastuka, leading knight of the Elks Club.

Today, in many parts of the world, it's still a charming way to honor a friend. Although most showers are all-girl affairs, a mixed party may be more appropriate for couples who have accumulated many of the housekeeping wares'while living on their own. In such situations, friends may present the couple with rec- ords, books, gardening equip- ment, or anything else that might be of interest. For all-girl affairs, there are a few considerations to be taken into account. Relatives or in-laws-to-be should not sponsor a shower. To break this rule will only leave family mem- bers open to criticism as "gift- seekers." A few years ago community showers were the vogue. Friends, relatives and acquain- tances of the bride-to-be, of the mother and of the grandmother were all invited. Father's busi- ness acquaintances, wives, one was left out. No one's feelings were to bs hurt and bridal showers be- came gatherings of 75-150 peo- ple who sat patiently while the bride opened 75-150 gifts. No matter how kind and patient anyone is. these long drawn-out affairs were tedious. I believe it is time to return to several intimate showers where the people know each other and can spend time chatting over tea. Moreover, the same people should not be included on more than one shower list. The cost is more than many can bear. Showers, in their traditional sense were a gift of love, more than of material goods. They were fun as you exchanged ideas and renewed acquain- tances. They were a meaning- ful part of every bride-to-be's life. Will they ever be that way again? KHARTOUM fraction (Reuter) of educated i women are beginning to make the Sudan has a long way to go.
