We offer nothing for snobs, hypocrites or para
sites. We do not specialize in sob stuff, sex stuff,
new isms or ologies, exotic customs or manners,
or the la test creeds and fads of the neurasthenics.
We believe that the popular taste is infinitely
better than the shut-in eclectics and common
scolds dream of, and we intend to prove our con
Eception by giving our vast family of readers the
very best and most wholesome in literature and
art and all-round helpful suggestions.
A husband who will do the f amliy washing ana
call it a lark is a pretty good sort particularly
if he makes a good job vi it. Millions of husbands
know how'tw wash babies, though they rarely
boast of it. Dishwashing is an all-family job in
most homes where there is pull-together har
mony. All of which puts us pretty solidly on a
self-help basis as a nation.
