Some Men Like to Do the Housework By RUTH MIU.ETT. NRA Staff Write: There really AJIE men who help with the housework and don't feel like hen-picked husbands. They've been writing to ine in answer to my recent statement that I would believe such husbands existed when I heard frcrn them, instead of from their wives. So ,on their own, a number of men have writton to say: "Sure, I help will* the housework." A few -say they help out so that their wives can get a little rest or .so that they can have more time together. But moat claim they help with the marketing, ccoking, and other domestic chores because they like it. One admits he gets a kick out of comparing the grocery atls and shopping around to see how much he can save on food costs. Another says lie likes to cook and is glad to get dinner when his wife is tired or riot In the mood for cooking. Swap Out Another says he regularly baby- j sits one night a week so that his I wife can go to her bridge club and I she does the baby-siting alone the ' night he gce.s bowling. 1 And .so it goes. Apparently some ' men not only enjoy sharing homc- makinij responsibilities, they are proud of the fact that they do, and don't feel the least bit hen-pecked. Their wives 'are just plain lucky. Because there were also a number of men who wrote In to say they never had done any housework and never intended to. They feel that is the wife's Job. j One even claims he showed my original column to 26 different men and didn't find one who thought a husband ought to help around the house. So apparently the men themselves are divided on the question. And there's not much a wife can do about the matter. Either her husband likes to help her or he doesn't If he likes to, he will. If he doesn't, he takes the attitude that housework is her job and It's up to her to get it done. Several heaping tablespoons of baking soda, kept Jn a small open bowl in your refrigerator, will help absorb food odors and prevent unpleasant mingling of tastes.
