Expecting cold cuts and doughnuts, the men were more than amazed when they were served the kind o f m e a 1 they would have gotten if his wife had been at home — fried chicken, hot rolls and cherry pie. The host 1 e t them w o r r y awhile over how he had managed it all before he ftnth MHlett confessed. H i s wife had prepared the whole meal and put it in the Iree?.er alons with written instructions for warming the meal in the oven. It's usually something like that when a family is able to manage as well with Mom away as with her at home directing operations. | A wife will spend a week getting I things all set to leave her family without her supervision for three I days. Before she leaves she will have seen to !t that the house Is in apple-pie-order. Clothes for each member of the family will be cleaned and ready to wear. Ths cupboard will be stocked with food, all errands run ahead of time, and probably the neighbors will take care of a few items. Then having planned and worked for a week to set everything well organized, the family.can get along without her for a few days. When she comes home at the end [ of her vacation to a cluttered house i and a happy and welcoming fam- i ily, she will have to hide a smile. They are proud they were able to get along so well without her. How they were able to Is the secret that nobody realizes.
