"Until recently," Miss Kneeland s&irt, "no one has considered the work of the household worthy of study. We have been content to dismiss it with a few noble phrasea about Home and Mother and the easy assumption that as a producer the housewife is rapidly becoming as extinct as the dodo." How to Do It Miss Kneeland, who has made extensive studies in all phases of homq management anil who is an authority on the most effective ways of securing household efficiency, gave the following suggestions for planning an efficient kitchen: '"The first, essential of. efficient production is the proper physical plant.

Tills dcesn't mean that you will cut down on the food itself. But it does mean that you will lessen the ort of preparing it. The cafeteria idea will work as well in a home as in a restaurant every now and then.

The various dishes of food can be left in the kitchen and each member of the family can dish out his portions. When the meal is ready the required number of trays can be placed on the kitchen table. Each tray should te equipped with a napkin and silver. The water glasses should also be placed on the table so each person may drav: his own water at the cold water tap in tl-js sink. You can make your sink into an improvised steam table by filling it with warm water and settin; the receptacles that contain your hot foods in this watr.
