We the Women ."There Is a sleeping among the women of the land, This generation of the daughters of career women is retrogressing into , . . that thing known as the home." So says novelist Fannie Hurst. Come, come, Miss Hurst. You're talking to a generation of young wives who have had a long hard struggle to get the homes of which they are rlglitly proud. They're glad to slay home and run them. The Jound out during the war years what it was like NOT to have o home. Most of them got their (ill of crowding their lives with outside activities and jobs while ihey were waiting for their men to come home. During those war years they thought it would he simple to "retrogress into that thing known as when their men got | the Jiome" | back. It wasn't as simple as thi-y thought. There was the housing shortage, the fantastic price* of new homc.5, the snoolineM of landlords j toward children. i A Fljlit All The W»y \ Getting a home tinder those conditions has been a. struggle, and it has involved considerable «acriflce for thousand/; of couples.

You're hitting a dream thai • is turning into reality for thousands of yo'.tng couples after years of wailing, hoping and struggling. And : for thousands of others you are talking about a home still waiting ' to be built. Botanically speaking, blaekber- les and raspberries are not berries. They are fruits, and the egg- plnnt Is a berry. H;n;k around 1(550, bridegrooms wore wedding ni|}lil!jowns, too. This specimen, shown nt a Ncwpoit, K. I., hobby show, comes complete with bonnet.
