Mich. * WE, THt WOMEN HI HUTU MI1.1.ETI UK* SUB Wrllw Ruth MHTeU How to turn m family vacation Into hard work: Be too ambitious about the distance you plan to travel each day. It's the last 50 nilles of a too-long driving, day tliat'start the'children fighting and make Mom and Pop wonder if a vacation b really worth the effort. Plan the kind of vacation that keeps Mom us busy cooking and looking after her family ns she is at home. If the family is going to "rough it" then the chores should be divided up so that Mama' gets as much-irest as everybody else. Let -one member of the family run the whole show, Instead of let- ling everybody have a say-so in the Illan-making. Take your troubles with you. If you aren't going to leave your cares and worries at hime, there's no need to get away from home. Go Kasy on the Biidprl You can also take the fun out of a vacation If you: Spend more than you can afford to. That will keep the man of the family worrying about money Instead of cnjoytns; his vacation. Take an alarm clock along, so that you can be sure to make an early start every morning while you are traveling. Stick by a set routine, doing everything according to schedule. Just as you would at home. Feel you've got. to do and see everything everybody tells you that you simply must not miss. Measure your comforts by the comforts you have at home and complain if they fall short. Take so many possessions with you that packing and unpacking Ix a nightmare.
