"What has become of the old-fashioned home?" is a phrase heard often today. Are we not living in 1929, and not 1829? Can we expect the home to remain the same, with the automobile passing by and airplanes buzzing overhead? Can we expect the mother to do all the mental tasks which were done in the home in puritanical days? Shouldn't she rather be a person educated for her profession of homemaking, so she can do her part, which Is not the drudgery in the home, but the management of the home? Yesterday the home was simpler. To establish a home, the mother would scrub, and rear children. Today it is more complex. The home has enlarged so it is a part of the community.
