Why Housewives Need Science, 1955

Did you ever wonder why young, single women should waste their time in science class when they could be out tracking down eligible men? Listen and learn as Dad and Mom explain to their skeptical daughter Betty how science benefits married women, as well as those waiting for Mr. Right, in this clip from Why Study Science? Hopefully, Betty soon learned that cosmic rays and cake baking are both lots of fun. You can watch the rest of this 1955 educational film at the Prelinger Archives.
