Mrs. J, L. Denton, chairman of he tour on Monday, reported that he event brought In about $!,• 000, with the Kountry Kitchen food Bale bringing about 5220 of that amount. Members voted to use $100 of he receipts for the Ruth Horton Fund to provide science equipment for Nations' College of Kanas City, Mo. The college is inahced solely by WSCS organizations, and the fund is to be used for laboratory equipment so that the college can become accredited. Ruth Horton of Houston, Who retires at the end of the church year after many years of WSCS service on local, district, con ference and jurisdictlonai levels was present for the Monday Tou: in Lake Jackson. The remaining proceeds of Bv tour are to be used to furnish a room of the new Young Woman' Co-Operative Home to be built on Lovett Blvd. in Houston. A committee was appointed a the WSCS meeting. Members wil Investigate the furnishing of th room in the home to house abou 65 girls who are studying or work ing in Houston. The home is all denominational. Mrs. John Huebel opened thi Tuesday meeting with a medita tion from the recent "Quiet Day" an annual day of prayer and medi tation for WSCS organisations. The devotional from the Gospel f John was presented by Mrs. 'red McDonald. Mrs. Floyd Murell gave a brief discussion of The Word". Mrs. Margaret Mullen told the group that the recent study, "One present the three Holiday Home lenpecked Husbands Create Revolution In Kitchens With MaleMinded Qadgets Mission, One Love", war a success and the mission goal was exceeded. This will probably result in jurisdictlonai recognition of the WSCS of First Methodist and Chapelwooo, she said. The WSCS also voted earlier to hostesses, Mrs. R. L. Bryant, Mrs. Vincent Buckley and Mrs. Carlos Davis, with love offering corsages. The corsages were presented Monday morning. Each one represented a $5 offering sent to missions in the name of the hostess. WOMEN Edited By LeROY BYRD the henpecked husband is in volt and his revolt is behind big c h n n ge in Ameri can tftchen design. t So proclaims a leading expert kitchen equipment — Karl Jenen, president of a company manu- acluring stainless steel sinks. i Jensen scoffs at the prevailing "leory that the space age gadgets i today's kitchens were designed to relieve the little woman from drudgery. Men, the selfish beasts, are still thinking only of themselves, according to the Jensen theory. If they are inventing labor-saving kitchen devices, H is because they are the ones most likely to need them. "The little woman had already relieved herself from- drudgery — by tying an apron on hubby. And when the males invaded the kitchen, the inventions followed as a direct result," Jensen declares. "We have in-the-sink disposals, electric can openers, electric timers for, stoves, automatic ice- cube makers, self-defrosting refrigerators and all kinds of mechanical mixing marvels — to SAVE NOW . . .

Can SPAGHETTI and 4QO • MEAT BALLS HU name a few — all because the man of the house was pressured by his wife to empty the garbage, cook, do something about the ice and generally spend tone in the kitchen. "Mere man may be no match for the female of the species but he does have a unique resource- mechanical genius — to make life under her thumb a little more pleasant." Take the kitchen sink itself. For many years, the sink was never changed, even though its design was something less than up to date. But. ig, the last 10 years?'the sink has gone modern. "For years, housewives put round dishes in a square sink, just the way that grandmother did, and bore up grimly under the obvious fact that the square or rectangular sink encouraged breakage," Jensen points out. "It wasn't that what was good enough for grandma was good enough for her. Rather, woman, being n o n - m e chanical, didn't know what to do about the awkward sink. The mechanical half of the specles_ didn't have any reason to pay"'attention to the sink — or anything else in the kitchen — to grandma's day, when grandpa ruled the household with an Iron thumb. Today, men are washing dishes, and a properly engineered sink is a matter of extreme importance to them." Jensen-Thorsen today is making stainless steel sinks with contour- shaped corners, "the proper shape iii QuLnaaiuug," Jemi'Il points out "Hubby not rally finds the contour sink easier on dishes — he is less likely to get his apron wet. The rounded shape prevents splashing. Even the wall between the double sinks is rounded that a stream of water turned on It will not splatter," reports Jensen. Men have made the clean-up chores easier, too, not only in the sink's contour shape which lacks dirt-catching corners, but in the use ol stainless steel. A swipe with a camp cloth Is all that it takes to restore the mirror finish, and the hard steel surface prevents staining. 2-oz, Jar « Of Waldorf TISSUE Rolb 33 C REYNOLDS FOIL 35 Ft.
