Others consider it smarter to get it over with quickly and then, catch up on the work.

Mrs. Harold Ohlendorf, adult advisor for the Presbytery Council, staying in bed. It's probably true that a cold lasts seven days if you treat it and a week if you don't, but bed rest has additional values if a woman can rid herself of worry about the house long enough to benefit from it. A mature woman needs her rest to recover her strength. Younger, more resilient' women can totter through a full week while dripping from the nose and watering from the eyes, but grown women more frequently become more ill when not getting their bed rest. A day or two's stay in bed can be used to catch up on beauty tasks, little by little. It's a comfortable place to give one's self a manicure or a dry shampoo. It's also a practical place to do the darning and mending that's been keeping clothes out of circulation. Keep it pretty and as much fun as possible. Wear a warm-colored bcdjacket or sweater. Wear a brassiere for comfort. Even if you have to get up to get your own soup or light lunch, serve it to yourself with favorite china and a whole teapot of tea.
