She has gray hair and looks every bit people in this town will think she has gone crazy. Don't you think someone in the family should step in and set her straight?

"But with all that money tied up in camping gear, r dicftft daa confess I regarded a camping trip with the same unrestrained dismay and dread of any other normal luxury-loving luxury-loving luxury-loving type who likes to sleep till noon and use ice in beverages." beverages." That's the confession of a wife-member wife-member wife-member of a closely-knit, closely-knit, closely-knit, loosely-organized loosely-organized loosely-organized little group. The group got started -how -how else1 with Scottsdale wives confessing confessing to each other that tamping was a crashing bore-chore bore-chore bore-chore instead of an exhilarating exhilarating pause that refreshes. So they banded together and named themselves FOR for Press On Regardless and refined their family camping trips from "roughing it" to something akin to "living it up." It's not survival camping any more. But the wives are surviving the trips "just fine, thanks" nowadays. Holiday weekends will find the POR's on a Mexican beach, a White Mountain top, a remote rim in the Tonto-Mogollon Tonto-Mogollon Tonto-Mogollon country, nr as this weekend somewhere near Pavson. On Regardless' For Men "We don't camp, in public camping grounds," says Mrs. Roger Landry. "There are too many of us. (There were 12 parents and 30 children last time ) W look like a tent city all by ourselves when we set up camp, as you can Imagine." Members of POR, not all of whom go on every trip, include the Landrys, the George Drul-iners, Drul-iners, Drul-iners, the Charles Esteses, the Rodman Mouliniers. the Peter Creguts, the Bob Cappses, the Fill Welches, the Robert Cor-bys, Cor-bys, Cor-bys, the Tom Dignans, the Maurice Petersons, the Hal Georgens, the Bob Snmuelsons, the Bob Broses and the Dirk Currans. . Says Mrs. Druliner: 'lt never fails to amaze us the way the youngsters get along together on these trips. "They range In ages from Infants to 17-yers-oIds. 17-yers-oIds. 17-yers-oIds. 17-yers-oIds. 17-yers-oIds. My own two squabble constantly at Kerne, are downright affable affable to each other and everybody everybody else at tamp. "The group game. I guess. Is Kick the Can. They play it for hours, then baseball, then swimming or water sports. They are busy from morning to night. "Really." she said, adding the clincher, 'I have never heard any youngster complain that there was nothing to "do or ex-press ex-press ex-press dissatisfaction of any kind." All this, of course, takes planning. And the planning sessions sessions usually take place at a party the week before at me home of one of the camping families. Tn addition to the tents, Coleman stoves and lanterns, ice boxes, cots and sleeping bags, clothing and food stuffs, here are some of the things experience has taught them to include in the mountain of gear each family takes: A comfortable chair for each member of the family. ("A fold up chaise longue, for instance. Camp stools ARE NOT the comforts of home.") A big tarp. ("For sunshade in the daytimes, daytimes, for dancing on by the beach.") A portable radio. Firewood for beach parties. Charcoal for trench-and-oven trench-and-oven trench-and-oven trench-and-oven trench-and-oven cooking. An extra card table. "By the time you get your stove, ice box, water jugs, cooking utensils and place settings settings on the camp table, there's no room left to eat there. An extra table solves the problem.") "Happy hour" equipment. ("There's nothing like a cocktail to make trip civilized.") camping For A Mountain Trip, A Mrs, Roger L. Landry Corn for the children to pop. ("That's happy hour equipment equipment for the younger group.") High chairs for the Cregut'i babies. Guitars for the Welches. Raffia-covered Raffia-covered Raffia-covered one-gallon one-gallon one-gallon jugs. ("Easiest way to replenish the water supply. We fill gallon jugs from the big unwieldy unwieldy water cans.") Deck of cards for gin rummy tournament. As for menus, sometimes supper will be a community affair. ("We've gotten so grand as barbecued pig. complete with apple in mouth,) Such dishes as shish kabob or spaghetti prepared jointly. "But we've learned," says one mother, "that it simply doesn't work out for one family to be eating something different different from the next family any given meal. "So we've arrived at the routine of making out complete complete menus for each meal. If we have bacon for breakfast, so doe everybody else. It nicely avoids the 'why can't we have pancakes, too bit." It also, they've found, works out nicely If the children are responsible for fixing at least one community meal each trip. This weekend, f'instance, their chore will be grilling In foil hamburger patties topped with carrot, onion and potato slices. Other community meals planned planned for this jurtket include canned canned chicken fricasse and rice, shish kabob, charcoal broiled steak. Hasn't anything happened mar the fun of the camping caravan, the members of POR were asked. "Well there was tills time down at Rocky Point when violent sand and wind storm came up suddenly and toppled all the tents and blew grit even into the food supplies.
