1924 Personal Efficiency!

Recently I found this 75 page pamphlet published in 1924 by the LaSalle Extension University.  We have come a long way Baby!  One article is titled "Helping My Husband Study." I got a chuckle while I read it.  
  • She may encourage him in his study
  • She may protect his leisure
  • She may make him comfortable that he may study while at ease and quiet.
  • She may help with his work by doing secretarial work for him such as typing lessons, finding references, etc.
  • She may discuss problems with him and study along with him
  • She may arrange and maintain a separate study room for him, or  table or bookcase, or desk, or other helpful equipment.
  • She may attend to the physical man--see that he is well fed, and in other ways well taken care of -- in other words be a good homemaker for him.

Can you imagine typing for him on this!
Very efficient new adding machine to help with paying the bills!

Or she could just take the class herself, get the degree, and bring home the bacon . . .

Like Sue said above - I am so glad to be living now!

PS - I really do love reading old pamplets and books like this. They are good for a laugh.
