ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH WEDNESDAY, APRIL 14, 1954 Career Woman Releases Duties _ By OtffiOfHt ROE •KWCraTOu PfCM W0THWI*8 Effffflif foe 25 years Frances Sider has fefcen the Wnd of career woman ftetnted to wfth pride by those seeking to prove that no woman needs to be chained to the home. A pioneer designer of bathing Suits and Sportswear, this petite, super-charged tycoon has built tip a reputation as a woman who can fan a successful business with one hand and a home and family with the other. Yet this spring, after the mosl successful season in her long and brilliant business history, careerist Prances Sider suddenly announced that she is selling out, giving up her business interests, planning to slay home and be a housewife. Here's how she explains it: "I've been knocking myself out all these years, working early and late, trying to run a household in rfty spare time. It's been an exciting, demanding life. But all of a sudden t asked myself what I was getting out of it all. "My daughter seemed to resent the time I must spend at work. My husband was disappointed | when I couldn't always be with him at the social affairs necssary in his profession as a lawyer. 1 began to feel that 1 wasn't being fair to either of them. So I'm quilting. I'm going to be a full-time wife and mother. "I've given (he career angle a lair try—and now I wish I'd just stayed home in the first place. "If my daughter shows signs of wanting a carer, I'm going to do my best to talk her out of it, "I'm convinced the happiest women, and those who give as well es get the most out of life, arc the ones who make a full-time job of running a home and making their families happy." Building Bright Spot in Economy. For This Year By SAM DAWSOX LOS ANGELES ^-Building is the bright spot in the economy today—and prospects of still easier financing may keep it that way lor months. Even in cities liberally sprinkled with vacant houses, new homes arc being started—and sold. New office buildings, stores, schools, hospital nnd marketing centers are rising to service the big population shifts and growths since the. war. This type of construction usually lags behind the big rush of home building. Both in Los Angeles and San Francisco building is running behind last spring, but it continues at a good pace. And in some of the suburbs, home-building is as much as 30 per cent higher, the Building Contractors Assn. of California reports. For the nation as a whole, the Labor and Commerce departments report the dollar volume of construction is running ahead of a year ago, and lopped 7!i billion dollars in the first three months. Based on hopes of further easing of home financing terms by Congress, speculative contractors are now going ahead with home building plans around many cities, building material suppliers report. In some communities now 90 per cent of the buyers of new homes are veterans who have especially easy financing terms. In those cities, real estate agents moan because older houses can't compete with these terms and are moving slowly.
