WE, THE WOMEN ' Home Is No Assembly Line, But Place to Relax and Live By Ruth Millett NKA SUH Wrllti Here's expression of a certain inai'cullite attitude that I know most of my women readers have encountered. "Most of our housewives are so wasteful of their time and energy that no modern Industrial concern In Its right mind would want them on the payroll," sneers an industrial engineer In a recent magazine rticle gallantly titled: Vour Wife Be Fired?" "Should Well, Mr. Efficiency Expert, the housewife may run around In unnecessary circles, wool-gather, and •top In the middle of one Job to •un to another, as you charge, but remember, please, tlmt all the while she Is doing her housework she Is nore, much more than a housekeeper. If she's dusting when Johnny falls out ot the apple tree or when Susie spills a glass of milk on the dining room rug she may not get back to her dusting for awhile. But the circles she runs around In bandaging Johnny or trying to de-spot the rug aren't unnecessary circles They're Just part ol the day's routine. And if she wool-gathers while she works, consider what she has on her mind—a family as well as a job. Maybe she has hud a fight with her husband and is feeling pretty low about that. Or, perhaps she Is trying to figure out how to handle some problem that has one of the children upset, or maybe her sturdy oak has confided things aren't going well at the office and, though she kept her chin up while she was encouraging him. she's plenty worried and scared herself. ~ , ax om* mi i)< c r Then there are all those outside demands on her time because she » Just a housewife" and nobody thinks her time Is valuable y The church wants her 'to bake cookies for a sale.
