Papa Buys Tools, But Mama Uses "American women arc fast bo- comlng the power behind the power tool," says a woman's magazine which Is sponsor- Ing the tlrst national Do - It- Yourself contest open to women only. Somebody has to be the power behind the power has' moved h °into »»"> Mlllelt the gnrnge, basement, or the room that before the Do-It-Yourself days once housed a maid. Pupa usually buys the first power tool after hearing a couple of luncheon companions bragging about making furniture or turning car ports into play rooms. Once he has one piece he begins to see that he needs another tool or another part.. Before his wife knows what Is happening, he has enough equipment to build a house, assembled for the purpose of making a coffee table or a bird feeder. Having spent hundreds of dollars to save a few on a couple of projects, Papa runs out of Ideus and the power equipment begins to gather dust. Furthermore, Papa Is right back where he was before he bought his first power tool, restless and in need of a hobby. That's when Mama senses that a power is needed behind the power tool ,and if anyone is going to take over, she is elected. So she starts dreaming up projects for Papa to do. And In trying to get him started and then trying to keep him at a Job until It is done she rolls up her sleeeves and works right with him. "Surveys snpw," says the magazine, "that most Do - It - Yourself projects not only are Initiated by women but they do most of the actual work on them." I've just tried to explain how that happens to be so. New nylon chenille scatter rugi take to the washing machine easily.
