The Fundamental Principle For many of us who aspire to be successful home-makers, some such dim aura of mystification clings round the wonderful new word Efficiency. How lightly is is bandied from mouth to mouth! What magical things it is said to do! Now it is offered to us as a tempting bait. Again it is brandished over our heads as a club. We are to be Efficient, and to make our kitchens Efficient. And then, of course, our troubles will be at an end. But what has efficiency actually to do with us? How do we get it? What do we do with it? After all, exactly....what is Efficiency? Mr. Charles Barnard has given the clearest definition of the term that we have seen. He says, "Efficiency has meant in the past the power to produce results. It now properly means much more. It means power to produce the best results at the lowest cost of time, labor and materials."
