To hear her complain, you'd naturally that she leads a lough life. There's so much work, she never seems to get done. She's tied down all day long with Iwo small children, when she would like to be running around with the girls. Her husband doesn't, realize what a strain Margie is under. And so on. Actually. Margie is n plenty lucky till. She lias an ambitious, good- natured husband. She has a pretty, modern home, with most ot the labor-saving devices that are on the market. She has a share in the family car. She has a pretty yard. She has two well-clothed, well-fed children. Wardrobe Stocked Margie, herself, has dollies that are good enough, though not as many or as expensive as she would like. AH of that, marriage has given to Margie. Yet. apparently, no one has ever told her that no woman should cxpe'bt to have so much handed to her on a silver platter, that in return for all of those benefits and blessings she should shoulder the duties and responsibilities of a housewife.
