Keeping Seams Straight Is Least of Wife's Worries A hosiery company recently made a survey in a large city to discover how many women wear stockings with the seams crooked. Four out of 10 do, the survey takers discovered. And they found out something else, too — that housewives are the worst offenders. Lest anyone think for a moment that housewives are just more careless than any other group of women, let's point out a few pardonable facts. They aren't more careless. They just have their minds on things that for the moment are more important than the seams of their stockings. The housewife Mrs. Lawrence rushing down the avenue with carelessly crooked seams may have just finished being extremely careful in making the baby's formula, measuring and sterilizing with great care. She probably has a staggering list of errands to do tucked inside her handbag—each of which she will do with great care—from picking out oranges with no soft spots to going OPENS 6:45 EACH NIGHT SHOW STARTS AT DUSK 2 SHOWS EVERY NITE!

Mrs. William Kreis, sister, Miss Naomi Rhodes of Delmost, Mo., will be the organist and Herbert Johnson from Mountain Home will lead the singing. The Missionary society met in the church under the direction of Mrs. W. G. Childers and had a special prayer service for the success of the revival. Mrs- Harmon Childs summed up the teaching mothers' reaction: Electrical & Plumbing Supplies For That Hard to Find Item — See Us. General Hardware And Appliance Co. 109 W Main Phone 3-4585 to three stores to find the kind of shirts with the exact kind of collar her husband likes. If she has to match a fabric ; she will hunt until she finds the exact shade she wants. And all the while, she is probably rushing against time, especially if she is paying a baby sitter to take over for her at home while she is out in her crooked stockings being the family purchasing agent. Nope, the housewife isn't necessarily careless just because the seams of her stockings are sometimes crooked, her lipstick applied with less than perfection, her look not as well-groomed as that of a working girl. It's just that the housewife has to be careful about so many things besides her looks, she often has to figure that for the moment her looks are expendable.
