Tenn., Gor- We the Women American husbands «nd children liave taken Just »bout all they c»M take of the Anvricin woman's fussy good-housekeeping complex and he. constant, frantic search lor knick-knacks with which to over-decorate her home. Tha'.'a what Mason Rose, head ->f the National Foundation for Psychological Research, recently told 309 members of the American lu- »tltute of Decorators. It's true, of course. Too many American families are living m picture houses Instead of homes. Mania gets a picture in her mind of what she wants her house to look like, and she creates lhat pic- lure no matter how much she has to sacrifice her family's sense of comfortable, easy living. If her friends "oh" and "ah" over her house, what does it matter if the kids can't bring their playmates Inside for fear Ihey'll track up the cream-colored carpeting? On IT to Imprest Others I recently heard a young wife aivl mother—who has an expensively lurnlshed home—say plaintively, "If we Just had one room in our house where we could relax." How .silly to live in a-house decorated to impress others rather than lo give the family a comfortable place in which to live. Any woman ought to be able to figure out (or herself that if Johnny can't play baseball hi the back yard because he might hurt the lawn, or bring his playmates inside for fear they'll give the house an lived-m look. Johnny's home life Isn't golii" U> be very happy. Meetings Training course for Den Mother* and parents at the Methodist Church, tomorrow night at 7:30 a'clock.
