The Algona Upper Des Moines, Algona, Iowa, Jan. 28,1937 3 Views on Married Women Holding Jobs BETTER THANA BRIDGE TOURNEY SAYS_AWORKER "Just Bobbers" Is Reply Of Another; Are 2 Jobs Too Many To keep our Girl Friday busy, we sent her out to find out how single girl* felt about married women holdng down Jobs, and how the married women with jobs felt about keeping them, and some of the reasons why they do. We found out plenty—and there are two sides to this story, as well as any other one. Opinion* Three Way* Opinion)) {were divided three ways: 1—Some flatly declared that the only job for a married woman was to stay at home and care for her husband, her children, or whatever needed taking care of. 2—A second group cautiously maintained that under certain circumstances it might be all right for the wife to work. 3—And the third group said emphatically that it was O. K. for married women to work, if they could get a job. For obvious reasons, we quote none of the women or girls interviewed, by name or initial. What They Said "I think it is all right for married women to work, if she has the ability and the talent," said one local secretary. "I don't believe in women working just to pass the time away, though." 'It la far better to have a job than spend the afternoons losing money over the bridge table," said another married woman. And a teacher had this to say: "I don't see any reason why a woman should hold down two jobs— her husband and a business. Work is hard enough to find for single girls, who have to live on a salary, without having married women take a position for less money, just to get household pin-money." Should Raise Children One young lady interviewed, who classifies herself as a "home girl", says that married women's career consists of raising children and bread. "That's what they get marred for," she added. She added that when she married she was go- Ing to be an "old fashioned wife."

Another business girl in Algona "resents" the Invasion of the job field by married women. "When a girl goes to school and studies so that she can fit herself for a useful business or occupation, she doesn't want the field overcrowded with a bunch of dizzy housewives. All these women want is extra money for a fur coat but it's necessary bread and butter with us," she said. Having the opportunity of asking the opinion of a district judge on the question, we did. Here's his answer: "There is nothing a woman can do which compares with her job of raising children. There would be fewer divorces if more women realized this fact After her work is done, and the children are grown, then she might justifiably look after outside Interests, or enter business." What's your viewpoint? Lucky? You Bet!

You probably would never attempt it Neither would L Yet. a great many drivers do this very thing during a blinding snowstorm. It doesn't take very long for snow to interfere with the efficiency of the ordinary windshield wiper and also to cover the side windows of the car. Winter is here and snowstorms are upon us. Be sure that your windshield wiper la in good condition and that the wiper functions properly. Sometimes the rubber becomes worn and a new wiper is necessary. A small cost but it can save you considerable annoyance and inconvenience. It is also a good safety measure to see that this equipment is in order. Instead of stopping a minute for emergency cleaning of windshield, many drivers will continue on their way. trusting to luck that the won't run into anything or anybody. Do not depend on luck.
