Here's An Idea, Barbara Jackson

The Iowa Homemaker

Does a sudden, irritating buzz or a startling, spine-tingling "brrinng" put you in a bad mood for that "8 o'clock"? A well-known clock manufacturer has put on the market a new kind of alarm clock. A 15-watt clear light bulb in a clouded plastic window flashes warningly on and off for 5 minutes before the ringing alarm goes off.

The Iowa Homemaker

Avid gardeners are in the midst of planting. Some students are thinking up ingenious ways of livening up their rooms with the spirit of the season, others are meandering along campus paths searching for the annual signs that spring has arrived. Then there are those who have caught the fever of the season and just can't get around to seeing all the possibilities for spring. Whether or not you are a victim of the desire to over-relax, you might like to find the offerings of nature in an easy way.

The Masculine Heart, Sherry Stoddard 2017 Iowa State University

The Masculine Heart, Sherry Stoddard

The Iowa Homemaker

February is simply not a month of femininity. It is neither warm nor gentle nor patient nor kind. It is a short-lived era of snow tires, frozen water pipes, rubber boots, stalled motors, over-worked furnaces, soaked snowsuits and everlasting colds. Notable figures brave enough to be born in such a month are not women. Abraham Lincoln chopped wood, and George Washington fought battles; they were rough and tough and able to withstand February and her harsh attitude. It seems to me, February belongs to the men of the world. The women have May and June and perhaps even September.
