Sometime ago the MHBUNE
attempted a drive to get down
town stores to employ Negroes in
other than menial capacities. It
is the belief of many that people
should be hired on the basis of
their qualifications rather than on
the color of their skin.
We are happy to say there are
a few store owners who do not
have to be foiced to do the right
them. Their policy has been one
of fairness in employment for a
number of years. Todd has em
ployed Negro salesmen along
with his other salesmen. If they
made the grade, then the job was
theirs. One of his oldest and best
known salesmen is Jimmie John
son. He is capable, courteous and
an asset to the store.

Husbands Can
Be Wrong
T 'e
■ *
Husbands have an annoying hab
it of describing housecleanmg at i
“soft touch”.
"It could be— but it isn't,*
claims Dr. Elaine Knowles Wa
ver, noted home economist, whs
checked cleaning habits in a typi
cal group of homes over a four
month period to find that Mrs
America is spending too much
time at her clearing job and d<*>
too many hard jobs by hand
Made at the reque** of tie
manufacturers of Eureka vacuus
cle. ners, the study showed that
women using average methods of
cleaning, includmg oid vacuum
equipment, »pend 5 hours and 41
minutes a week at their cleaning
tasks; remove an average of four
fifths of a pound of dirt fr- m the
horn* weekly and spend To per
cent of their time on job* requir
ing hard hand work
Even with all her hard w.irk,-lx
only remove* one-third of the flirt
possible to remove with moders
elfitncal equipment —two-thirds of
the dirt merely get* pushed from
place to place in the house; thus
increasing the amount of work ti
be done at the next cleaning
When Dr. Weaver introduced i
modern ‘ Complete Heme Cleaning
System”, consisting of *« upright
vacuum cleaner in eombmatmi
with a tank-type cleaner with at
tachments, the women were »N»ti
cut their cleaning tim® 3< pm
cent; cut their hard youth-rabbin
jobs by over 75 per cent and r»-
move a pound and three-quarter*
of dirt from their horrns weckl)-
almost three times as much a
with old methods.
Best result of the test for tin
"r :>bund harried housewives wh'
participated in the test was prw)
that “Spring and other seasNi
housacleaning can practically *
eliminated" if papa will c»ai
