Home Adviser Has Report of Family, 4-H Camp Events By JUNE PILGRIM Lee Count}' Home Adviser Spending time foolishly is a greater loss than spending money foolishly. You can always make more money or earn it back, time cannot be made. One of the great sadnesses of living, is that people oftentimes don't acquire the skill of spending their time as well as the spending of their money. Efficiency engineers often point their finger at homemakers and say that 25 to 50 per cent of their jobs could be reduced or even eliminated. Often we do spend lots of energy un- . wisely. For example, here are some figures these experts give u«. It tak?.= 8^ more energy to stand than to sit at jobs. Why don't we peel more potatoes at a sit down area then? Why don't we begin to iron sitting down? Do those long canning preparation jobs while sitting down, too. This often means planning and securing equipment that allows us to sit down comfortably. Not every irong board allows you to sit down to it. A pull out lap board is needed in a kitchen, and many a carpenter can build it. or a sink can be engineered so it has a drop front to allow knee N Bending is another great energy and thus time user. Bending requires 43^ more energy than standing. Walking upstairs takes seven times as much energy as walking on the level, while walking down steps take twice as much energy as walking on the level. For this reason, you can see why placing laundry rooms on the first floor makes good sense. Also, babv or young children's rooms are best located on the first floor. It consumes terrific amounts of a young mother's energy to care for them and run up and down steps at nap time. • Everyone might well study how they use time. It can be improved by oftentimes just analyzing it. Keep track of the way you. spend time — it can be horribly revealing. Good questions to be asked are "Did I spend time on the things that' really mean the most to my family?" "Did I spend enough time with members of the family?" "Was there any planning ■ to the day?" "Did I have enough time for sleep, rest, grooming, mental development, and in good fun and •recreation?" And alwavs we should ask "Did our attitude affect ou: use of time in some jobs?" It so • often does. Family Camping As families begin thinking of their vacations they might to consider "family camping," an experience for the entire famil; like our 4-Her's get during th summer. In fact, our family camp ; is held at 4-H Memorial Camp, tut is open to any and all families in the state of Illinois. ,■ Family camping will be Aug. 1-5 _at this camp just outside Monticel-lo, 111- It provides the opportunity for the family to be away from home, to play together; become acquainted with one another in a different social atmosphere. Here they can discover new and reinforce known forms of recreation like crafts, books, cookouts, nature games, waterfront, music, dance, ■drama, stories, sociability and work ■ •xperiences that can be done cooperatively within the family. Family camping provides parents an opportunity to discover and compare their children's eating, sleeping, and playing habits and social responses to other families. Several days of living in close troximitv to other families reveals things they are doing well. It car also reveal ways they can inv Anyone interested in the details of costs and reservation blanks may contact any Farm or Horn' ' Bureau Office.
