Do Your Friends Feel Sorry for Your Wife? (Dec, 1929)

That’s pretty brutal.

Do Your Friends Feel Sorry for Your Wife?

What’s ahead?

A world of rapid changes and new economic problems, that’s certain. Just as surely, however, there’s one thing that will be unchanged. In the near future and the long future, the important positions will be held by trained men.
