Photo: Nina Leen for “Life” magazine
The picture [above] shows the household tasks that Marjorie must  accomplish every week. She has a crib and four beds to make up each day,  totaling 35 complete bed-makings a week. She has hundreds of knives,  forks and utensils to wash, food to buy and prepare for a healthy family  of five and a whole house to dust and sweep.   A nice husband, three fine children keep her busy 100 hours a week.
