Many Ways For Wife To Earn Money Here is a letter from a woman reader who wants to know if I can suggest any way that she can earn money at home. She has small ch i Idren she doesn't want to be away from home all day And yet the fstfn- ily needs the money. She feels she could be earning s o m e- how, if she only knew how. That type of letter comes to this column so frequently that today I am going to list some of the "at home" jobs I happen to know women are doing successfully in my own community. One mother of four has made a success of a morning nursery school. Since she still has one child under school age she has not only created a Job for herself, but is providing playmates and planned activity for her own child. Another bakes big, beautiful cakes on order. She gets plenty of orders, too, from mothers planning birthday parties, from ofganiza- Ruth Allllett Mrs. Billy Gaines, who has been patient in Baptist Hospital in Memphis, is now at her home at Promised Land. Ma-, and Mrs. J. M. Jcntz are spending the weekend in Memphis visiting their son, Robert Jontz, and family. Miss Alice Marie Ross is spending the weekend in Little Rock with her nephew. Vernice Brister, Jr., who attends Arkansas School for the Deaf. Mrs. Ben Harpole and children have returned from Memphis where they visited her sister, Mrs. Rhea Blake, and family. Mrs. Sally Kimes, and Mrs. Drew Hughey, Mr. and Mrs, Jim Keller and Mr. and Mrs. Cornelius Scherer p ere in Memphis last night. Jim Bedwell Is spending the week end in Memphis with his family. Mr. and Mrs. Samuel F. Norris and daughter 'Reen. and William D. Beck are in Jonesboro to visit Mrs. Prank Y. Love whose husband passed away at Baptist Hospital in Memphis last Sunday night. Mr. and Mrs. Love were frequent visitors In the Norris home. Among those from Blytheville High School attending the Beta Convention in Litle Rock are Edward Wimberly; Jim Tompkins, Noble Gill, Jr., Nancy Dixon, Emily Damon, Kay Jobe, Arden Cuadra, Gail Whitsitt. Eugene Still, Don Coleman, James Hubbard, Nicky Weedman, Jerry Edwards, Roger Sudbury, David Warren and John Stovall. , Condition of Sanford Tomlinson. who is a patient in Chickasawba Hospital, is reported to be unchanged. He is in Room C-8 and is allowed to have visitors. tions that like to eat when they meet, and from hostesses who find it easy to serve a delicious homemade cake— so long as it is made in someone else's home. Still another specializes in the sort of food apropriate for cocktail parties, and one of the things that has made her venture successful is that she can get the makings of a party together in short order. Another makes slip covers and draperies. All of these women have two things in common. They have children and so are "tied down" and yet they all want to earn money. None of these ideas may appeal to you. But they may suggest one thing. That if you want to earn money at home, the first step toward making your wish a reality is to sit down and figure out what service you can offer that your neighbors or townspeople are willing to pay for.
