Fitchburg Sentinel (Newspaper) - October 2, 1944, Fitchburg, Massachusetts FITCHBURG SENTINEL, MONDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1944 WE THE WOMEN Maid and Mistress Exchange Role to Celebrate Relationship By RUTH MILLETT To celebrate their 50-year rela- tionship as mistress and maid, a 93- year-old Cleveland housewife and her 67-year-old maid decided to swap roles on the day of their "golden anniversary." On that day the mistress served the maid, and the maid did the re- laxing. If finding a maid continues as "difficult "as" It 'is today ar-J if maid's wages don't drop a little we may find mistresses and maids switching their roles for more than I stages, anyhow. In order to keep I a maid these days Mrs Brown as- i clings a lot of her maid's responsi- bilities. She may drive her to and from I work. She may let her can for her I own family when she is canning for Mrs. Brown's, and so on. There was a story in the paper not long ago about a woman who I wen moved-to she learned the i maid was going to quit rather than take a long bus every day. The war has proved that women lead a life of ease for a yeart hiring to snitching them from Mrs. Smith to do all of her work for her. And Mrs. Smith could save her money and the next year hire Mrs. Brown to help her do her work. We're getting there by gradual i under the noses of their friends. So why shouldn't they go the whole way and say, "You do my work this this I'll do yours Menu BREAKFAST: Tomato and grapefruit juice, cornbread, but- ter or .fortified margarine, crisp "bacon, syrup, coffee, milk.

Beauties' Hints ANN SHERIDAN: Prolongs life of lingerie, By ALICIA HART Bewitching lingerie is no less' be- witching if fragile lace is mended when threads weaken or spring" a tear. Not above hauling put their mending baskets when fine froth are Hollywood stars, who cost a pretty penny, use every stra- tegy to preserve them. From one glamor girl Ann (The Doughgirls) Sheridan this prize stratagem of starching a strip of net and of ironing it to the underside of the lace that tears, thus strengthening the lace and simpli- fying mending. "Over this background of net, which can be as sheer as says Ann, "repairs are a cinch." She has another trick of easing she says yank holes in lace top slips. To make straps ride easier, bits of salvaged elastic are sewed to the ribbon where it fastens to the back. of the slip. Community Chest Chatter Dad has a job. Wages are high and past debts are paid. The chil- dren are half grown and able to work part time and contribute their share to the family coffers. Mother is thrifty and a good manager. Dad is honest and industrious and turns over his pay envelope to mother every Saturday night. Christmas is celebrated with gifts all around. There is even money in the bank. Times are good. The future looks bright. Who would think it wouldn't last But it didn't last. Times changed. A depression hit and men like dad were laid off by the thousands. Sav- ings were eaten up. The home was mortgaged and then it was gone. Mother went out to work and scrubbed floors Dad sat around the ing aid. Tho name of the Asso- ciated Chanties was changed again in 1921 to the Family Welfare assn. of Fitchburg. Thus we became a part of a trend in social service work which is na- tional in scope. The Fitchburg Family Welfare Assn. is affiliated with an organization known as the Family Welfare Assn. of America. Their motto reads: "Light from hand to hand. Life from age to age.'1 The number of private agencies in the United States connected with this national organization totals 386 of which 278 are non-sectarian, Catholic, 39 Jewish and four Protestant Their standards of service are high To render efficient and skillful service a high quality of training is needed which often in- cludes specialized work in the .graduate ..field after college, training Why Thousands of Doctors Have Prescribed vravv Pertussin (DUE TO COLDS) Pertussm must be good when thou- sands upon thousands of Doctors have prescribed It lor so many years.

QUALITY CANDY FOR OVER SIXTY YEARS Then he began to stop in and take a drink or two to drown his troubles. The children no longer had pretty clothes or nourishing meals and pretty soon, with the home atmos- phere so gloomy, they began to look elsewhere for companionship and a little gaiety. They began to set their feet upon the path that leads to the juvenile court The family hit rock bottom. A common Httle story, isn't it It has happened before in the his- tory of our country during the period after World War 1 It may happen again. Life at best is insecure. Who knows what fate or circumstances may bring to any of us? Dad may not be laid off but he may contract tuberculosis which deprives his family of his earning power. He may need an operation. Or he may have personality difficulties and gel fired from his job. Or he may noi be able to keep a job. He may have trouble with his wife which preys upon his mind. He may have dif- ficulty managing a growing daugh- ter or son or in-laws. Any one of a thousand tilings. To whom shall this family turn when they are no longer able to hold their heads above water? In many cities a special type agency is set up whose purpose is to deal with just such family prob- lems and whose object is to do all m its power to preserve that back- bone of our country, the American family and home. It contributes invaluable service to the community not only in the rescued and re- habilitated lives but also in the money saved taxpayers by-its pre- ventive work. It dad can be helped back to normalcy and support oi his family then society will not have to care for his children. If children can be kept out of court and out of reform schools then again money is saved society. In so far as citizens can be enabled to function under their own power then society is the richer. No man can live to himself alone. Twelve years or so after the Civil war around 40 people gathered to- gether in Fitchburg and organized the Fitchburg Benevolent union with a membership of 225 subscribers. It is an Interesting fact that Fitchburg was the fifth city in the country to organize for the relief of the poor. The object of this first society was to "do good and grow to minister to the" sick and the suffer- ing, help the unfortunate and fur- nish employment to the poor. The same year Burbank hospital opened, 1891, the Benevolent union coordi- nated all the relief work being done in the city and changed the name to the Associated Charities. The Associaaed Charities has a history of long and useful service to this city. The next few years saw agencies operating independent- ly and specializing in their own par- ticular type of service. Medical ser- vice in the city increased. An ear and throat clinic was estab- lished at Burbank hospital in 1914 and in 1915 a clinic for the treat- ment of mental diseases was set up in the city hall by the Gardner State Colony. Protective work for girls was organized under the supervision of the Associated Charities in 1918 and during the influenza epidemic of that year they rendered outiUnd- is received.

The Family Welfare Assn. has been especially instrumental in de- velooing community programs for family rehabilitation.
