Statistics were gathered relative to

Among the suggestions offered is
that improved equipment lie install

machinery and modern methods of
heating. It was found in many in
stances that rearrangement of tho
kitchen would materially lessen the
woman's toil. One of the startling
revelations of the survey is the nuin
