The problem is given a family of

and daughter 12 months and an in-
come of $1200 a year to -find the best
way of apportioning the income to
cover the various expenses of the
This is one of many problems that
are holding the attention of Miss
Anna E. Richardson adjunct profe.3-
.sor of domestic economy in the Uni-
versity. Her solution is that of the
$1200 $45C.25 or 3S.2 per cent
would have to be allowed for food.
'This is an average of 25 cents a day
. for each member. Two hundred sev
enty-six dollars or 23 per cent woul.l
have to go for shelter. Clothing would
cost 215 or 18 per cent. The mother
is allowed- $80 for her clothes the
father $75 and $25 $20 and $15 re-
spectively are allowed each of the
children. One hundred fifty-four dol-
lars and twenty-five cents or 13.63
per cent Is allowed for operating ex-
penses which include light fuel re-
pairs laundry doctor bills and the

cents or 8.8 per cent is for what Miss
Richardson terms advancement mean-

ation and saving.
"My families become very real to
me" said Miss Richardson. "I fcegln
to feel that they are actual people.
nd I find myself trying to give this
mother just a little more than the
tare necessities trying to arrange
their budgets so that they can save
a few dollars more to be prepared In
case the father doesn't get a raise in
salary or in case of a long i'.'ness.
I want to stretch that $1200 to cover
everything that they need and want."
As a result of her Investigations
and study in the ffcld of family bud-

the conclusion that it is not the very
poor family that deserve; tle more
