Stepmother's Attitude
^ Should Be Friendly
Every year thousands of wo*
men take up the task of rais
ing other women’s children. The
job of being a foster mother is not
an easy one, but the attendant prob
lems are not impossible to solve.
Especially difficult, says Gretta
Palmer in the February Good E::::o-
jceeping Magazine, is the role of
ptepmother-through-divorce. Since,
in this case, the child has two
mothers, the situation may prove
dioroQghly bewildering to him. Pur
ser complications may occur if any
liscord arises between the two
households in which he has a part^
For the sake of the child, any differ*
ences must be straightened out from
the start.
A stepmother. Miss Palmer ad-
dses, must not demand a child’s af
fection. Her attitude should be that
bf a wise, friendly grownup. The
real mother should have first claim
in all decisions; the stepmother
thould defer to her Judgment. Bat
r there is a problem with which she
feels better able to cope, she shoold
flrst ask the husband to obtain the

Keeps It Pure During Defiyery
We have spared no expense to equip our
dairy with the latest and most scientif
ic facilities for the preservation of milk
purity. As an additional link in the
sanitary service chain, which we pro
vide, we now cap each bottle with a
sterilized SEAL RIGHT HOOD.
Our bottles are automatically hooded after
they are capped by special machines. This
cover-all hood is entirely tamper - proof. Its
seal cannot be, broken without detection. It
brings to you, not only milk that is pure, but
a bottle whose top has never been exposed.
If you use our milk, there is no need to
wash off the bottle top before pouringr,
for it comes to you sterile-clean, com
pletely protected by a sanitary hood.
Guard the health of your family by
using only protected milk!
