Police Puzzled NEW YORK, Jan. IT. W>- A body found In Queens gave police a new kind of mystery to work on today. The puzzle wasn't so much the death, as the kind of body. The victim, found in a ditch near New York International Air- As long as I can remember wo-t- ncn have been urged to do more and more. They've been shamed and prodded for so long that the woman who admits that she Is so busy being a wife and mother and housekeeper that she hasn't time lo take on a lot of outside activities Is downright shame-laced about It. It seems to me It is high lime somebody started urging women la slow down, to take it easy, and to assure them that il (hey are running a home, looking after children, and being helpmeets and companions to thcl: husbands that Is about as big a load as.they can successfully carry. The trouble is, there are always the women who do .seem to manage ^o much more than a home, husband, and children. They seem to be living proof to the woman who admits she can't go in for a lot of. outside activities without slighting her family's needs that she is just a poor manager. Unseen Side of the I'ictnro But look closely at Mrs. Busy Body's home life—and the picture' isn't always so pretty. ! Usually in one way or another her family pays the price for her outside activities. In one family where Mnma Is loaded down with outside activities her children are turned loose on the neighborhood. In another the reason the housework takes so little time is because it Ls the kind of home that Is never open to children. In still another the family suffers because Mama Ls always in a rush, always short-tempered, forever hurrying and pilsning her family around so that they fit in with all her outside duties. Sometimes it Is moslly Papa who suffers, who gels dragged here and there, as his important wife's unimportant husband. The woman who finds homemak- Ing H full-time Job usually finds it so because she Ls more interested in promoting her family's happiness than in promoting herself. I think she ought lo be encour- ged and congratulated--instead of being told constantly that she should be doing this and doing tha' n addition to her real job.
