Home-makers Deserve Pay, Is
Belief of Beatrice Barmby.
"Home-making and its attendant
duties are so important that they
should be elevated to the dignity
of a paid job" asserts Beatrice
Barmby in a recent publication. of
She asks the question "Why is it
that so many women forsake the
old-fashioned home and its duties'
for the hotel apartment and a posi-
tion n a business concern?" The
answer is simply that there is no
weekly pay envelope in connection
with home-making, and after a
woman has tasted the joys of eco-
nomic freedom, she has little use
for which she isn't paid.
It will matter more to the future
generation that we have been suc-
cessful home-makers than it will
that we have been successful pro-
fessional or business women.
For the solution of this important
problem, Beatrice "Barmby makes
the suggestion: "Let us then budget
for this weekly pay envelope for the
home-maker and housekeeper mak-
ing it as inviolable as the pay en-
velope of the clerk, a wage which
shall not be static, but progress
upwards with the rising fortunes of
the domestic firm."
Since 1914, when the Smith-Lever
act became effective, nearly 4,500,-
000 farm boys and girls have par-
ticipated in 4-H club work.

which will be held at 6 o'clock,
Monday, October 26, should notify
Josephine McCausey, '34, at 7117,
not later than Tuesday afternoon.
Plans for the affair are progress-
ing rapidly, according to Emily
Bates, '32, general chairman. At a
meeting held last week, it was de-
cided to have all sororities enter the
ballroom immediately upon arriv-
ing, instead of entering in a body as
has been the custom in previous
years. The speakers and guests of
honor will enter last.
Evelyn Neilson, '33, chairman of
the program, and her assistants,
Janet Allen, '33, and Parrish Riker,
'33, are working on the arrange-
ments for the program, but no defi-
nite plans have been announced as
Dean Lloyd Issues
Invitations to Tea
Honoring Orientals
Following a custom observed an-
nually, the Dean of Women's Office
issued invitations Thursday for a
tea given in, honor of the Oriental
women students to be held from 4
to 6 o'clock Thursday afternoon in
the Ethel Fountain Hussey room at
the League.
"The purpose of the tea," said
Miss Alice G. Lloyd, Dean of Wo-
men, "is to give the students an
opportunity to meet Ann Arbor
women who are interested in the
University's oriental members."
An attempt is made to invite all
the women in Ann Arbor who have
visited the Orient or who have some
connection with it. Hostesses at the
tea are to be Mrs. Alexander G.
Ruthven, Mrs. Carl S. Huber, and
Mrs. W. Carl R fus.
