She became a world-renowned author overnight. It hasn’t made any difference in the mode of living for the Harmers, though, who like their sky-high glass-fronted home on Mt. Washington just as it is. ft was here that Ruth penned the famous work, with a great assist from her husband, Lowell Harmer, a journalism instructor at Lincoln High and whom Ruth describes as “the most encouraginest husband.” Their 11-year-old daughter helped too. The proofs were "spread all over the house” and everybody did his bit to help. Off for Mexico Mrs. Harmer teaches English at California Polytech...

OES . . What does it mean? [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 8 November 1964
OES . . What does it mean? The Order of the Eastern Ctar is one of the oldest organizations founded for women. Early writers confirm the fact that the ‘‘Eastern Star" is of French origin and was presented in America during the Revolutionary War by French officers volunteers in the cause of America during the Revolutionary War by French officers volunteers in the cause of American liberty. Many organizations claiming relationship to the Masonic Fraternity were introduced from time to time with varied success: but none possessed elements of permanancy until the year 1850 when Robert Morris compiled his first ritual. This was the real foundation for a lasting order for women having Masonic affiliation. This ritual was revised many times before the General Grand Chapter was established in 1876. Grand Chapters and Subordinate Chapters quickly sprang into existence in all States. To- day the Grand Chapter of California has 850 subordinate chapters with a total membership of 160,000 member...

Mr. Homemaker startled the judges [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 8 November 1964
Mr. Homemaker startled the judges This little magazine is supposed to be for “ladies only” but the rules had to be broken for a certain James Taylor, who astonished the country when entered in the Homemakers Contest. Suggested by his teen-age daughter, Darle n e, Taylor threw his Fedora into the ring along with the dainty chapeaux of the ladies. Taylor has raised his two children single-handedly ever since they were tiny tots, and kept the family together when everyone said a “mere man couldn't do it.” “POP IS TOPS” He proved he could and won the.esteem and gratitude of his children who admit that Pop cam cook and keep house in grand style. Civic-minded he took the lead in the appeal for better ambulance service in Northeast Los Angeles and pounded the pavement securing the necessary signatures. No, Taylor wasn’t crowned “Homemaker” but since his case was so special he certainly deserves an honorable mention. MAKES EVERY MINUTE COUNT . . . never saw anyone who could get so much done...

We women talk back [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 8 November 1964
We women talk back Women, bless them, have devious manners of getting their own way and of making their wants known. Increasingly a potent force in this world of ours, they have expressed their opinions on improvements they’d like to see made. Their views are the result of a panel discussion held by the Homemakers of last year meeting in Chicago plus a local poll: • 1. Women (admittedly non - mechanical) wish that durable goods were made “durable.” Their particular resentment is toward automatic washers (average life expectancy between 2 and 3 years). • 2. They detest pointed shoes. Not only do they hurt but they make feet look bigger. A good percentage say they would rebel, but can’t find any others in stock. A smattering said they liked them. • 3. Women, increasingly weight conscious, would appreciate caloric counts on canned goods. • 4. Women loathe TV commercials advertising expensive short-lived toys. • 5. Women wonder why engineers can lay fool-proof cables for mammoth bridges...
