NEA Staff Writer Every now and then some home i economist sits clown with a pencil I And paper and comes forth with the news that In the course of a year an average housewife makes KO many beds, peels -some stagger- Ing number of potatoes, Irons a terrifying number o( shirts, and &o on. It's all very depressing to see the potatoes, shirts, and beds piled up In n year's heap. But housewives often depress hcmsclvcs by the same kind of thinking. They look at housekeeping an endless Job that stretches lefore them—a Job that is never don and rarely gets "caught up with." When they do that, the Job of liomemaklng looks like pure, unre- You>l£ spent thn weekend in N p w- bern, T»nn., where they vlsil"d wit] Mrs. Kitlv T/'iicastcr, mother o lieved drudgery and they begin to feel like slaves chained to the demands of a house. But taken day by day. housework Isn't too bad Job. It Isn't "todny" the frustrated housewife can't face. It's all the "lomovrows" on to|> of "today." So the way lo look on hnusewrk —like the way lo look on any Job- it one day's work al celvc from teaching other children. A great purpose of » teachers life la to make a marked Improvement in someone else's life."

Jobs Can lie Faced Cheerfully If she didn't, become depressed over all she has to do tomorrow and all she wants to accompolisri next week, almost any housewife could lace today's demands chccr- ully. bo the tiling to cto with the ardesl job of housekeeping is lo ct aside a certain number of work- ng hours, accompolish everything iosslble in those hours, and when the time is up call it a good day's work and quit. Not only quit working, but stop thinking about the work yet to be done. What Is left over can be tackled tomorrow— which is, or should be. another day. Once when she was asked how she had the energy to do all the Ihines she does, Mrs. Eelcanor Roosevelt explained that she could carry on so many activities because she never let herself worry beyond the Job at hand. That's the best menial rule any overworked housewife could ruive. LooK at everything you have to accompolish In a week's time—and you'll think you can never get It all done. Divide it up into seven day—and llitnk only about today's tasks—and they aren't loo much to contemplate. At The HosniiaU Blythcvllle Hojplfil Dismissed: Mrs. Cecil Hart, Cootcr, Mo.
