Finishes — uaint, lacquer, enamel, varnish or shellac — come out best .when the woodwork is treated with an undercoat. Shellac ordinarily dries dust-free in ten minutes. But for most desirable results allow at least three hours between first and second coats. For Happiness Slow Down To Enjoy Family "What would you do if you knew you had only 24 hours to live?" Perhaps it is a foolish question, but when a national magazine recently asked its women readers what they would do, almost all of the published answers expressed the same wish. They would spend the time with their families, much like any other day, but with this exception. They would try to make the day seem gay and leisurely. Perhaps^ that is a wish of most wives and mothers. That the time they spend with their families could be lived at a more leisurely pace and that there was more light-hearted laughter among members of the family. If that is wour wish are you doing anything about it? Have you cut out all the unrewarding outside activities that you took on when you had more time but which now make you feel rushed and pushed? Learn to Relax Have you cultivated the habit of really relaxing when you have a few free minutes. Some women can't sit -down witn- out noticing that there's dust on the piano or listen through to the end of a child's excited confidence without telling him his face is dirty or he has left his baseball mitt on the living-room couch. Can you laugh at small annoyances, or at least accept them calmly? " Do you stop your work for a minute" to watch a bird .or look at a sunset or notice the pattern of shadows, and share the moment's beauty with any member of the family who is nearby? Do you usually remember that it is more important to listen to what your children want to tell you than to rush through the job you are doing, while you merely pretend to listen? In short, if you really wish that you had more time to enjoy each day with your family, are you doing anything to slow down each day enough to enjoy it?

Put Marriage First To Make Success There is something deceptive about the phrase we use so lightly these days, "marriage and a career." It fools women into thinking they can really have both—when actually they can't. To have a good marriage the marriage itself HAS to be the woman's career. Sure, a woman can have a good marriage and hold down a job; if she is smart enough and if her husband has no objections, not even hidden ones. But if she even stares thinking of that outside job in terms of a career, her marriage is bound to suffer. Because a career for either a man or woman must be of first importance. And no woman can have a satisfactory marriage unless the marriage is more important to MONDAY, AUGUST »; 1954 her than anything else. She has to be ready and willing to sacrifice her job any time that it threatens to interfere with her marriage instead of being willing to sacrifice the happiness of her marriage for a career. You Can't Have Both So the girl who really wants a career more than anything has no business taking on marriage. She can't have both. Sure, we're always reading about this woman or that one who has ''both a marriage and a career." But that's just a pretty phrase. Pretty and entirely false. Either the woman has a marriage and a job or she is a career woman who has taken on marriage as something extra, something that can be sacrificed if it ever stands in the way of her career. Sure, men have both careers and marriage. But that is because men can afford to put their careers first, knowing their wives are going to put the marriage first. But a marriage has to come first •with one of the partners—and the partner who must put it first is the wife.
