HOUSEWIFERY UNIVERSITY DEGREE WHY NOT THE MEN? [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 24 October 1926

HOUSEWIFERY UNIVERSITY DEGREE WHY NOT THE MEN? Miss P'Jorcnce A- Underwood, secretary of the Women's Freedom League, sug gests, now that there is to be a Uni versity degree for household manaK'i nient, some startling- possibilities. She writes in an English paper: — The University of Bristol has decided to grant a University degree to women who, at the conclusion of a four years' course of study, show a fair knowledge of domestic subjects and proficiency in household management. This will surely make housewives sit up and take notice. From time immem orial .such work has been unpaid ot grossly underpaid. It has been regarded essentially as women's work. Every woman was supposed to have a natural aptitude and inborn inclination for it; and a favourite theo.ry of many members of Parliament still is that all women and girls, should they find themselves out of work, no matter what their age or class or training, ought immediately to find employment in domestic service. But a University ...

MOUNTAIN AIR WHY IT GIVES HEALTH [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 24 October 1926

MOUNTAIN AIR WHY IT GIVES HEALTH All stations of altitude have a much lower barometrir pressure, rm.l a very mueh lower relative humidity, than places which are situated at, or sliffhtlv above, sea lt?vc*. The higher you ascend from the plains the less is the amount of oxygen in the in spired air. Having regard to the great importance of oxygen, this, far from being an advantage, might seem to be a serious drawback. It has been proved, however, that the rare faction of the air acts very benefi cially upon the lungs of most people, especially young people and town dwells. The rarefied air necessitates an in crease in the depth and frequency of respiration, winch invours me ub velopment of the respiratory muscles, and. in the young, leads to consider able expansion of the chest and Jungs. It is known that children with contracted cheats, begotten ot tonsils and adenoids, who are sent to high altitudes lose their unsightly contractions more quickly and satis factorily than they can be ...

But really this very common complaint is one of cue oiggest ruenpees to ncanu aiiu rausn many serious ailments. When the stom ach is upset the whole body is thrown out of gear, and neglect to remedy the cause of the stomach trouble spells danger. To stop indigestion there is no better, quicker or easier way than to take, in a quarter of a glass of water, half a teaspoonful of 'Bisurated' Magnesia, which instantly neutralises tl--- excess acidity and stops food fer-; mentation, thereby removing the cause «f the trouble- Not only does ? 'Bisurated'' Magnesia stop all pain and nausea, but it has a most beneficial effect upon the weakened muscles and stomach lining which soon becomes strong and capable of digesting all food, instead of letting it turn sour.
