THUS DAY, JULY 5, 195! THI AEGISTW-NEW5 — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS RUTH M1LLETT By RUTH MILLCTT NEA Stiff Wrltir Ease Housewife's Burden By Making Children Help Husbands could save money by hiring a maid instead of a doctor, says a well-known physician attached to a famous clinic. He maintains that American housewives are among the most overworked groups and that many of them are suffering from exhaus- Q tion. But getting a maid isn't the oniy solution to the overworked housewife problem, which is fortunate. For whether or not it would be cheaper in the long run, a lot of family budgets just won't stretch, far enough today to hire help for Mania. When the budget won't stretch that far, what can be done? A lot, if Mama will use her head. To begin with, she can bring her f children up from babyhood to wait on themselves and to assume some responsibility for helping at home as soon as they are old enough. A lot of "exhausted" housewives wait on their children hand and foot and don't even demand any real help from their teen-age sons and daughters. Too Many Spoiled Youngsters I heard a mother say the other day that when her husband looked for her to take her somewhere •jf with him in the evening he found her pressing a dancing dress for one of their teen-age daughters. When she explained that she couldn't leave until she had the dress pressed, he called the daughter and said flatly: "If you're old enough to be dating, you're old enough to take care of your own clothes—and you can start right now." If more mothers were that sensible about their children, there wouldn't be so many of them "exhausted" by the job of homemaking. Then, too, housewives could—if they would—schedule a daily afternoon nap, and take it no matter what. It might mean that the dinner dishes or'that Susie couldn't be chauffeured to dancing class or whatever. But with a determined effort it could be arranged. No, hiring a maid isn't the only solution. Mama's determination to spread the work around a little and to take some time off for herself would work wonders, too. LUCKY NELSON HAS HIS WHOLE FAMILY WORKING Pennsylvania produces more ice cream than any other state, turning out about 73,740,000 gallons a year. BY BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD, July 5.—-Ozzie Nelson can well be envied by every American father. He's got his whole family working. The former band leader is the headman of the Nelson clan, which includes his wife, the former singer Harriet Hilliard, and their two sons, David, 14, and Ricky, 11. For two years the entire family has been starring on the radio in "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet." Now they Are all involved in making a film, "Here Comes the Nelsons." Since it is the family type of picture which is popular with film patrons, there is a strong possibility that the film will lead to a series. That would no doubt please Ozzie, who has managed to keep four checks coming in and maintain a normal, unspoiled family at the game time. • * * "WE'RE AVERY CLOSE FAM­ ILY," explained Harriet while the three male members of the family were in i movie scene. "We're never had any trouble with the boys getting hammy or self-conscious. For one thing, they have been around show business ail their lives, so they take it naturally. "The boys go to public schools and fortunoatly their friends treat them quite normally. They don't comment about how good the boys were on the radio. Tney only say, 'That was a funny show* or something like that." * * * THE TWO BOYS never see the money they are earning. - By court rule, half of it goes into government bonds and the ether half into their bank account. It has been estimated that the beys will have 9150,000 apiece in their own names by the time they are 21, as nice a start in life as you could hope for, . fmmiHiiiMiMiiHiiniimfiHiim^ WHY PAY MORE WHEN YOU CAN BUY FOR LESS AT RADOM BUILDING SUPPLY?
