Living Standard Dips And Women Face Tough Task BY IIUTSI MILLETT When President Roosevelt told the nation that our living .standard would have to come down, he indirectly gave women a job to do. That job is to fase their families into a lower standard of living so that they will feel the jolt as little as possible. To do that they will have to work harder than they have been working; at the job of homemaking —and that in many cases has been plenty hard. They will have to stretch dollars by their ingenuity, hard work, and old-fashioned economy. They will have to use judge- ment in knowing what to give up and what not to. It might be easier for instance-, to cut clown on the milkj and fruits they feed their families than to get the grownups to cut down on cigarettes. But the easy way will be most costly in the long run. They will hav^ to be careful of their own health because they have work to do and because the budget won't stand any preventable illnesses. GUARDING HEVLTH WILL BE IMPORTANT They will have to conserve their strength, not putter it away. If they don't they'll never be abU; to manage all the things they have to do. And it will be up to the women i i to see that th? family takes its I "going without" and "giving up" cheerfully. They \voiVt if Mama complains of the- high cost of food every time she reads a- grocery jari or says bitterly, "No, you can't have a new dress for the party—not unless your Dad increases my household allowance." That's the job—and it's a touyh one—that a lower Jiving standard will force on wnmen. If they don't asfeume responsibility for it, their families and family life will suffer more than is necessary.
