Wife Wins Work Battle —In a Walk By GAILE DUG AS (NBA Woman's Editor) NEW YORK — <NEA,> — At last, there's a handy little modern weapon of warfare to be used ia that eternal battle of the sexes: Which has the toughest job, homemaker or breadwinner? This long-standing debate was ended recently in at least one household when a New Jersey couple, Alice and Bill Lucaire, agreed to attach pedometers to their ankles and thus clock every step they look from Monday to the following Friday evening. The walkathon, sponsored by the Tide Washing Clinic, was staged by a husband and wife who are parents to three very active children. Bill is a salesman, traveling for an industrial tape concern. Alice keeps track of the three little ones and a six-room house, too. ON 7 MONDAY morning, Alice hooked on her pedometer and began the day cooking breakfast for five while her husband read the morning paper. At 9:30, as she was doing the dishes, he was driving along the turnpike. So far, the score was one half mile for Alice and 0 for Bill. At 10. Alice went down to the basement, getting the first load of washing started. Then the 'phone rang. She dashed upstairs again. It was Bill, wanting to know how pedometer checked. Once more, Alice headed for the basement when the doorbell rang. A salesman. Meanwhile. Bill has made his first call, where he spent 30 minutes. At 10:35, he stopped for a cup of coffee. Alice was making the beds and getting lunch for the children. By noon, her score was three miles. AND BY noon. Bill has added another three calls to his morning list, a quarter of a mile for each call. At exactly 12 noon,, v.'hen he went to lunch, his record read a mile ana a half. During- the afternoon, he made another four calls, while Alice was running around the house vacuuming rugs. At the supermarket, she met a neighbor who thought the pedometer idea such r good one that she wanted to borrow it just to prove to her husband (for once and for all'i f ' housekeeping is no cinch. * * * BY WEDNESDAY evening. Alic had a score of 12% miles while Bill trailed along with a mere 7 r /4 miles. Even the children were taking an interest by now, making comments like this: "Gee, Pop, you don't work anywhere near as hard as Mom. do you?" Mom would smile. Pop's answer to this is, quite naturally, censored. On Friday evening, when the -ontest ended, Alice was. quite naturally, the winner. Bet you're surprised. Alice wasn't. Her score was 18>' 2 while her husband's was lO'-A- "I knew it all the time," she said, smiling the smile of a champ. NOTICE My Office Will Be CLOSED Until July 8 OR. F. look for rhii i*ol.
