MARTHA was dependable. I,lke a patient, willing and uncom- plaining horse. Her life on her small farm was not different from a tread ram, always the same, day in and day out, month after month, year after year. There had been a time when Mar- tha was not alone. That was when her older sister Helen and her younger sister Nancy and her still younger brother Curt lived there at the farm. But that was a long time ago, longer still since their parents had died. The sisters were beauti- ful and had married well, and Curt, possessed of burning ambitions, had left to make his way in the world. Frequently they came out to call, to "eat one of Martha's wonderful dinners" and "get a breath of coun- try air." It was on a Christmas day that Nancy brought Barre Howard out. "I knew you wouldn't mind, dar- ling," she gushed. "Mr. Howard is a traveler and he's lecturing in town tomorrow night." Martha smiled and nodded and looked up into Barre Howard's tanned face, a face that was strong and klnd, with eyes that held a dreamy mystery in their depths. But no one would have dreamed that there were any thoughts in Mar- tha's head save those that centered around preparations for the Christ- mas dinner. It was a sumptuous meal one of the best Martha had ever prepared. She knew a vague sort of pride at the way her guests attacked it. Martha sat with the others at the table after the dinner was over, lis- toning to Barre Howard tell of his travels, of far away places he'd vis- ltad. He looked at her twice while he talked, directly, penetratingly, and she flushed. After a while Martha got up and began clearing off the table. No one offered to help. She washed and dried the dishes and stacked them away. And when she came back into the living room, they were ready to go, all of them. After they left she closed the door and turned and went back into the kitchen. For a moment she stood in the center of the floor. An expression came into her face that was the un- leashing of years and years of sup- pressed desires. She took a quick step forward, seized a broom by its handle, swung it toward the shelf of eanned preserves with all her strength. Martha laughed, shrilly, piercing- ly, and struck again. The shelf gave Way this time, swinging on one hinge. Half a hundred Jars of vary- ing size crashed to the floor. Directly following there was an instant of silence, and in that In- stant a voice spoke near the kitchen door. "In heaven's name, what are you doing that for?" Martha whirled, and there, Just in- side the door, an amazed look on his tanned face, stood Barre Howard. "Why?" she cried passionately, "Why? Because it's what I've want- ed to do for years and years and years and it's Just today I've had the courage. Because I hate this place, hate being cooped up here. Because I'm plain and unattractive and can't have the things my sisters have. Because Nancy's so selfish. Because she isn't satisfied with one man, but wants another, the only one--I~I--" She stopped at last, breathing hard, leaning heavily against the sink, guilty, ashamed of what she'd almost said. 'Tin sorry. I didn't mean it. Real- I~. If--tf there's something you for- got, I'll ~aelp you find it." "there's nothing I've forgotten," '~Phen~why did you come back? Why don't you go and leave me alone, like all the others do?" His eyes were steady, penetrating, a dreamy mystery in their depths. "Why do you think I came hack?" he asked. "Why?" She brushed a hand across her eyes. Something was stir- ring inside of her, something she thought dead. "Why?" she repeat- ed. "How should I know?" Barre Howard laughed and stood before her, and suddenly the look in his eyes was no longer mysteri. ous. It was like a picture, readily hlterpreted, telling her why he had come back.

Serve Oysters The tailend of the holiday sea- son brings impromptu get-toge- thers and all sorts of spur-of the- moment parties. And vchether it's a crowd of teen-age skaters or fiftyis.h bridge players, they'll all put on their favorite-hostess list the one who ladles out steaming bowls of oyster stew. For large crowds or "hurry-up" company a stew is easiest. Never wash the oysters but feel care- fully for hidden pieces of shell. Heat them in butter ~ntil they curl slightly. Then drop them in hot milk and season to taste. Do not boil the oysters in the milk-- bhey lose their tenderness. Sprin- kle chopped parsley, paprika or grated carrot on top. But suppose there are some in your family who "just can't stand" the appearance of the oy- sters~for them we have another suggestion. Put the raw oysters through the food chopper and combine them with milk, cracker crumbs and seasonings and either fry them in patties or scallop ~hern. Children are especially fond of oysters fixed this way. There are numerous scalloped comb~- ation dishes, such as corn and oysters. Oysters are an excellent source of both vitamin B and iron, and of course are one of the seafoods which provide iodine and help pre- vent goiter. Sinoe Iowa is in the goiter belt, every person in the family should recieve at least one serving of some kind of seafood weekly. Tradition has it that oysters should be served only during the months in v2hich the letter "R" appears. But ~that's a tradition which no longer holds in this day of superior refrigeration. You can buy canned oysters anytime of the year and fresh oysters almost any month.
