Problems Of An Editor And
Fellows You Should Try Housekeeping
This may sound crazy to most
men. I know it will! But to most
women, I think they will say Amen!
I have arrived at the conclusion
that all husbands should have to
keep house a week or so, occasion

thing to do that the average house
wife has to do.
When they have experienced
that job they should never com

the house is not in shipshape tirder
