5F --J une 2,1974 Sundav Gazette-Mail --Charleston. West Virginia Organization in Housework Homemakers' Lesson Topic Women often say their work is never done. Strangely enough, women spend about as much time doing housework today as women did 50 years ago, even though they have and use more power-driven equipment, more ready-to- serve food, more easy-care clothing, and more conveniences such as electricity, automatic heat and running water in their homes. Is lack of organization the answer to this problem? To study organization, decide when, where and how each job is to be done, and which member of the family will do each job. These are some of the points to be dealt with in the lesson which will be studied during June in all clubs affiliated with the Kanawha County Extension Homemakers Council. THE LESSON was written by Audrey G. Guthrie, state extension specialist in consumer education and home management for West Virginia University's Appalachian Center. She taught the lesson to leaders from each club in a training session and they, in turn, will teach it to their fellow club, members. During her lifetime, a woman will fill many roles -- those of housekeeper, wife, mother, g r a n d m o t h e r , d a u g h t e r , daughter-in-law, sister, neighbor, volunteer community worker, paid employe, and others. However, she cannot carry on all of her possible roles with equal importance at the same time. Thus she picks a group of roles to form a role- cluster, which will change with stages of the family life cycle as well as the family situation. THE BRIDE'S p r i m a r y role-cluster may include wife and housekeeper if she moves into an apartment of her own. If the couple lives with either set of parents, her role as daughter or daughter-in-law may be more important than that of housekeeper. ;; If she includes paid employment in her primary role-cluster, she simply allots the necessary block of time for paid work. Her work and rights as a paid employe are quite different from those of wife, just as her husband's work and employe rights are different from those of husband. A husband and wife usually decide who will do certain parts of the housework fairly soon after marriage. They may base their decision upon sex role, hours of paid employment, type of employment, age and number of family members, geographic and residential location, or other factors. THE BRIDE may choose as her work around the home to prepare and serve meals, wash dishes, clean the apartment, and wash, iron and Sunday Deadlines Club calendar notices for the Sunday Gazette-Mail Home and Family Section must be submitted prior to 4 p.m. Wednesday.

She will not share this work with her husband if they believe it is her duty to do these jobs. She may do all the shopping, paying the bills and keeping records, or she may share these with her husband. She may turn these jobs over to him completely -- especially if they believe it is his duty to handle all money matters. She may leave car care entirely to her husband if they believe men should take care of mechanical things. Nevertheless, the jobs mentioned here usually are necessary to both men and women, whether they live alone or with others. WHEN THE first child is born, the woman's role-cluster will include that of mother. She may give up the role of paid employe when she becomes a mother, and take on the role of nursemaid. She may feed and bathe the baby, change its clothes, and keep it from getting hurt. She may play with and talk to the baby. If she chooses to continue her paid job, she may take on the very different role of employer as she hires someone to babysit and do housework. She does not stop being a mother when she pays someone to care, for the baby. She may see herself more clearly as a manager and mother if she hires a nurse-housekeeper. When a family moves from an apartment into a home of its own, the woman's role- cluster expands to include co- homeowner. Her work may extend to taking care of the yard, painting the house -both inside and out -- and fixing up the place. Sometimes the husband does this work. The couple may share these jobs or hire someone to do the work. Either way, they keep their roles as homeowners. THE WOMAN'S ROLE as housekeeper, babysitter or nurse may be less demanding as her children grow older and they take on some of the cooking, cleaning or other housework. She may expand her role to include chauffeur or volunteer community worker. She becomes a chauffer when she drives a child to the dentist, a man to his work, or a friend to the grocery. She becomes a volunteer worker when she does church work, leads a 4-H club or scout troop, or collects for a community fund. For various reasons, some women never volunteer their services. THUS EACH w o m a n changes her role-cluster as her family situation changes. She must take on and drop off certain jobs as they become necessary. If she is widowed, she will have to assume more responsibilities for her home. If she and her husband both live until after all of the children are married and gone In a double-ring ceremony on Saturday at St. Marks United Methodist Church, Miss Sandra L y n n N e w h o u s e , daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G. Harold Newhouse, became the bride of Timothy Elaine Stone, son of Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth D. Stone, all of Charleston. With the Rev. James Claire Jarvis officiating, the bride was given in marriage by her father. Nuptial music was provided by Miss Pamela Dunlap, soloist, G. Thomas Minshall, organist; and Mrs. Christine Parker, pianist. from the home, they will find they have more free time to pursue their own interests. These may include golf, bridge, travel, volunteer or club work, or those things which best suit their fancy. 'Whatever their choices, it will mean another change in each of their role-cluster patterns. AnnMUKtmtnf tf NEW LOCATION!
