Hooray, Ironing!

Reported in the Eugene Register-Guard of Eugene, Oregon, on this day in 1946: Mrs. Wyn Louise Boyle, formerly of England, told pressmen upon her arrival that "The trip over on the Queen Mary was fun...There were a game room for the wives and nurseries for the children. The swimming pool was fixed up as an ironing room for us. We really were well taken care of."
