(From Introduction - abbreviated)

The purpose of this survey was to study the effect of three sources of income on family living conditions: incomes derived from industry; from agriculture; and from a combination of industry and agriculture.

The findings of such a study may be useful in showing the needs of Tennessee homes and thus furnish a basis for home economics courses of study and for training educational and social workers to adapt their work to home and family needs.

(2) Appearance and serviceability seem to be important factors in buying hose, but appearance makes a stronger appeal. (3) Generally speaking, price paid does not seem to be an indication of service which can be expected.
