I absolutely love this article from 1933. It is as relevant today as it was then. I would change the title to every person versus every man  as the skills mentioned are as important to our daughters and granddaughters as they are to our sons and grandsons.

Between my father and my grandfather the skills mentioned were passed along to me. Unfortunately I was not taught to cook nor was there pressure to learn a foreign language. Both skills would have been immensely valuable to me.
