WE, THE WOMEN By Kuth Mlllclt, NKA Staff Writer Nightmarish Budgets ah Make It Tough "Live a swell as you look" ad- In balance—sometimes putting the nonishes one of those decorating magazines that each month ninkes Mama yearn to throw out every- hinyj in Hie house and start out again from scratch. That, I'm convinced, is a tougher problem for the average woman lhan the people who think up such ogans ever realize. Oh, it's simple enough In families where money doesn't have to he budgeted. But such families are few and far between we'll just skip them. For Mr. and Mis, Average Am erica to live as well as they look poses a real mathematical problem. Through a Rood many years of their lives it's too often a question of whether Papa needs a new .suit worse than the old chair in the living room needs a new slipcover Or whether Mama should buy really knock-out coat or make l year's do because the refrigerator Is starling to net up. Fortunately Papa usually dorsn' worry too mmrh about striking r com I'm table balance between ho the family lives and how it looks, Involves Some Tricky Problems But it's a real problem to Mama It's not enough for her to have enough clothes to take her whcr ever she's invited. There come the day when she herself want to entertain, and then Mama know her house will be up for Inspector Or if .she has put the house firs 1 she's never very happy going ou in shabby [-lathes. So she tries hard to keep thing .ouse first and sometimes putting •ersonaJ needs O f the family ahead f the house-but never seeming o keep them even. So if anybody really wants to help Mrs. America live 35 well as he looks—and vice versa—they'll lave to get down to the how of It It's too tough a problem for most 'omen to cope with successfully.
