The following is from a 1950's Home Economics textbook intended for the
 High School girls, teaching how to prepare for married life.

1. Have dinner ready: Plan ahead, even the night before, to have a
 delicious meal - on time. This is a way of letting him know that you have
 been thinking about him, and are concerned about his needs. Most men are
 hungry when they come home and the prospects of a good meal are part of
 warm welcome needed.

2. Prepare yourself: Take 15 minutes to rest so you will be refreshed when
 he arrives. Touch up your make-up, put a ribbon in your hair and be fresh
 looking. He has just been with a lot of work-weary people. Be a little
 and a little more interesting. His boring day may need a lift.

3. Clear away the clutter. Make one last trip through the main part of the
 house just before your husband arrives, gathering up school books, toys,
 paper, etc. Then run a dust cloth over the tables. Your husband will feel
 he has reached a haven of rest and order, and it will give you a lift

4. Prepare the children: Take a few minutes to wash the children's hands
 and faces if they are small, comb their hair, and if necessary, change
 their clothes. They are little treasures and he would like to see them
 playing the part.

5. Minimize the noise: At the time of his arrival, eliminate all noise of
 washer, dryer, dishwasher, or vacuum. Try to encourage the children to be
 quiet. Be happy to see him. Greet him with a warm smile and be glad to

6. Some DON'TS: Don't greet him with problems or complaints. Don't
 complain if he's late for dinner. Count this as minor compared with what
 might have gone through that day.

7. Make him comfortable: Have him lean back in a comfortable chair or
 suggest he lie down in the bedroom. Have a cool or warm drink ready for
 him. Arrange his pillow and offer to take off his shoes. Speak in a low,
 soft, soothing and pleasant voice. Allow him to relax and unwind.

8. Listen to him: You may have a dozen things to tell him, but the moment
 of his arrival is not the time. Let him talk first.

9. Make the evening his: Never complain if he does not take you out to
 dinner or to other places of entertainment; instead try to understand his
 world of strain and pressure and his need to be home and relax.

10. The Goal: Try to make your home a place of peace and order where your
 husband can relax.
