ewkured, etc. However, let’s not be
too hopeful that one will become
so by madly dashing from this bit
of culture to that. The statement:
“It is easy to become narrow
minded by living a quiet life,” is
lertainly presumptuous. Probably
some of the most narrow minded
individuals are those who flutter
from this to that and have much
information but no knowledge.
Give Mrs. Average Housewife a
chance. Let her keep her major
interests in the home, fasten on
one or two outside interests, read

well. Perhaps women can “afford

Big Dipper would dip one up. This
is a pretty complex civilization we
live in; let’s not expect the house
wife to be acquainted with all
phases of it.
Not only in married life, but in
any career, it is quite possible for
girls to slip into mediocrity; for
th| type of person who would do
this in married life is the same
type of person who would do this
in the business world. When a girl
marries she should strive to strike
a happy medium between home
life and outside events. By doing
this she is more likely to make her
home a happier place, as well as
add to her own enjoyment.
I am inclined to agree with the
Mills college article. However, I
think they are taking themselves
much too seriously.
University women are on the
whole rather well-balanced people,
but I suppose one might become
“embroiled” as the article declares.

never been married myself. You

Seriously—I have seen this take
place, among my high school
friends who were married and who
never attended college. However, I
think that college people are not
so likely to forget the things they
have been exposed to. I’m strictly

Of course one shouldn’t limit her

Should she devote a good share of
the home-making time to music,
art, and literature is the question.
Naturally, that would depend upon
the individual interest of the hus
band and wife. But, personally, I
would rather believe that ideal
home life would include a wider
range of interests. A good college
or university education is a good
means to broaden the individual’s
