War Wife Must
Add to Duties
A Daily Letter
A letter from a soldier overseas
scoffs at the excuse many young
wives give their men for not writing
them every day. He rays some wife
is ferever explaining to her hus
band : “By the time night comes and
I’ve done the housework and put
the baby to bed I’m often just too
tired to sit down and write.” The
soldier thinks that is utter non
Any woman could probably un
derstand a mother’s being too tired
at the day’s end to sit down and
wiite a gay, happy-sounding letter.
But that’s beride the point.
The point is that men may not
understand, and so expect daily let
ters from their wives no matter how
busy or tired they may be, or how
little time they may have for writing
letters. And if that is true, the
women whe fail to write as many
letters as their husbands expect are
making a sad mistake.
Somehow they ought to manage
to save an hour of each day or
night for letter writing. They would,
if they were convinced that a daily
letter war as much their duty as
giving the baby his cod liver oil
every day or making beds and wash
ing dishes.
Nc matter how strongly a woman
feels that she hasn’t time to write a
letter every day or hasn’t enough to
say to war; ant a daily letter—if her
husband expects one she should
manage to get one off, somehow.
For it certainly isn’t going to dc
her marriage any good for her hur
band to be building up the resentful
feeding that she can find time for
everything the baby needs—but no
time for what he needs—a daily let
ter from home.

New Trick Gives "Oomph"
To Crocheted Fashions
NEW YORK.—Thanks to a new
construction trick, the newest crop
of make-it-yourself crocheted hat,
bag and belt ensembles have all the
oomph and chic of fabulously pric
ed custom-made matchmates.
That trick is to make a meshed
in effect as heavy as felt—and as
easy to drap—out cf cotton thread
by carrying four strands all at the
same time on your crochet hook.
This trick also wins huzzas from
busy women because it cuts down
considerably on the time it takes to
whip up style tricks like those
shown above.
Only a few evenings and eight
balls of thread, for instance, are
needed to crochet either one of the
two ensembles pictured. So com
pactly meshed are the four-strand
weaves that no millinery wiring is
needed for either the iberitotooned
beret pictured left or the chou
