e Big Stone Gap BIG STONE GAP, WISE COUNTY, VA., WEDNESDAY."NOVEMBER92 laT? No. 47 Husbands Useful If She's Wise, Wifcy Will Uti? lize Trooper Hubby at Home Hereafter. Ify "DOROTHY DOOMTTJjE") (An Army Man'* Witts On tl?. Border ) .Marion Liar)find, one of the few women in captivity mak? ing money from housework, ought to bo on th<> Boriler. She would lenrn (hut one of the beet little household helps may be Hubby. Hho would find that interna? tional boundary line patrolling lms made the boy in khaki the one best bet for the woman who wants to conserve her oii orgj and to cut the high cost of housekeeping The United StittcBor the Mex? ican bandits, or wbodvor's t > liluine for sending husbands ami brothers into the mesquito, should have one of those reso? lutions from the Housewives League offering Thank Yen's. The discerning woman will bo convinced that not Sweden but the United States army pro? duces the liest domestics. She will know that if he's joined the army, i !:?;.'???. 1. .May become indispensable to the household. 2. He may be arranged to take nji much less room in the house, in fact, could live com? fortably in o clothes closet. :). His patriotic fervor is really a love of housekeeping. I. His only objection to kitchen service is its name. If it's called "kitchen police" ami he is ordered to do it by some body with a title, he'll peel po? tatoes and wasli dishes. S. He will even make beds and scrub floors if she wears an officer's insignia on her kitchen apron and insist upon the mili titry salute. 0. He w ill discipline his chil? dren himself if hard labor as? signed to son John because of misbohavor is called "fatigue duty" instead of punishment. 7. Heran eat from his lap if there isn't room for him at the table. 8. He doesn't need tiny care and may he valuable in the home as a women. Not that one wants to get in? to competition with profession? al tipsters, hut all these "house? hold hints" and enough more to manufacture copy for a year could bo obtained with a Hold glass trained upon a Border camp from an observation plat? form in the top of d mesquite tree. The only problem left for the housewife to get domestic sori vice from what the Army has proved is the natural source of it, would he to follow the mak? ing of arborvitae?take a cedar, cut its hair and call it by tin other name. All of which will give one a house boautifior. l?'or intensive domesticity is the lifo of the soldier. To wit: He learns to "got along" with Boven companions, for a term of years if necessary, in Q space that would make a one room Hal seem the si/.e of a public skating ring. Ho eats within a space of six by three inches. He. does his own washing. He does his own mending. He sews on his tuitions. He scrubs. He sweeps. His possessions make his ball bedroom seoms like the Field Museum. Ho washes dishes. He shaves himself. He makes bis own bed. He picks up papers in bis Army house. He" keeps it with housewifey tidnesss. Every man in the ranks dors this, which should make him a good home companion. Tie has to do il in the Army. But he doesn't call it house? work. And the imagination is al? lowed wide rang- in these in terclmugeubly domestic and military pursuits. For instance, in one of Colonel Foreman's cavalry kitchens one day they cleaned a huge and lough "r. d snapper," fresh from the Qulf. They used a currycomb. Which leads one to conclude that "household hints" aud help come more naturally to mau than to women. But, follow ulster, lie sure to give the domestic luties to bo performed appropriate military names, if you would gel the best results from friend hubby i ill doing 'em when lie gels hack homo.
