WE, THE WOMEN BY HUTU MIIXKT'I M:A BUS Write/ Rath Millet* Blytheville 'Y', Jaycees to Present Minstrel Show in City Hall Tonight 'If 1 coitlrt teach my daughter only tuo .skills," writes a modern mother, "I'd sec that she knows low to run a typwriter and how to drive a car." Maybe she's got something there Grandma could get by real well If she knew how to cook and how to sew. That v 'as her personal security. nut a woman today is better prepared to face the world It she Is master of a typewriter and an automobile. The typwiiler will take care of her if she ever has to earn her own living, for knowing how to type is as (,-ood Job insurance as a girl can have. And the modern woman's new freedom Is more tied up with knowing how to drive & car than we generally Rdmit. The wife who can't ilrive a car Is at^ her husband's mercy. She goes 'just where he wants or is ailling to take her—and practically nowhere else. but. the woman who can drive can pile the kids in the family car and get away from her own four n-alls. More Important Than Sewing It's no longer necessary for every woman to know how to sew. It's nice, but it's not essential. Plenty of women today who couldn't whip up an apron are successful homemakers. It's not even necessary for a woman to know much about cooking. T h c package m i x, frozen foods, and canned goodo, have made cooking simple enough so an eight-year-old can turn out a tasty meal. No man Is expected (, with these notions. For it's the homcmaking arts that cater to hi-s comfort. But thousands of women owe their freedom from four walls to the automobile and their security to the typwrlter. And they wouldn't trade the ability to type a neat letter or drive the The Blylhevillc Junior Chamber* of Commerce, In cooperation witrt the Blylheville "Y", will stage a minstrel at 8:13 tonight In the "Y" auditorium oil the second floor of Cily Hall.
