There's the bride in misty while, the handsome bridegroom and the bridesmaids in lovely dresses. There, are flowers in profusion guests in confusion, gorgeous gifts and warm wishes for happiness. They say that any woman, no matter how plain, is beautiful on hei wedding day, and I believe "they" are right. And if a gal is just ordinarily pretty she becomes absolutely gorgeous when she is a bride. THIS ISSUE OF THE ALGONA Upper Des Moines is dedicated to brides. In it you'll find help in selecting the gowns, gifts to present to your bridal couple friends, equipment for the new homes and suggestions about the invitations, flowers, pictures and the hundreds of other details so that the wedding can be made a truly lovely and memorable occasion. Now, Chantilly lace, orchids an'c stephanotis, chapel trains, double rings and silver and china pattern: are important to brides and I do not mean to belittle them. Bit. in case it isn't mentioned elsewhere, there is something even more important and the bride has already selected it. It's the bridegroom * * * AFTER THE HONEYMOON, the bride packs away her gown in tissue paper and the couple settle down to the business of ordin ary living. Almost before she figures out what to do with the four pressure cookers given to her as wedding presents, the bride finds cut that the dashing, debonair creature she married is a mere man> after all. And it's a man she has to live with, so she may just as well try to understand him. » * * I WONDER WHO EVER STARTED the rumor that it is the woman who is hard to understand? Maybe it was some man too lazy to bother with finding out what made his wife tick and who just threw up his hands and said women were made to be loved and not understood. Or maybe it was some gal who started the idea that women are so complicated to help make her seem mysterious and add a little more interest. For my money, men are just as hard to understand as women. Maybe even a little more difficult. * * * WE SHALL START THIS UNSOLICITED advice on understanding men, with the assumption that most men, at least the ones you and I married, are pretty nice. They bark and growl a little once in a while, but they are trainable and they respond to good treatment. With a little patience, you can get them to answer your command and if you start early enough and are firm enough with them they can be entirely housebroken. (Or maybe it's just plain broke). This advice is truly double value, for it is also the same technique to •apply in case you ever take to raising poodles. * * * ' IF YOU ARE MORE INTERESTED in having a good husband than a well-trained house pet, you don't try to order him around at all. There are more subtle and lots more effective methods of getting your own way. The person who said you can catch more flies with sugar than you can with vinegar wasn't kidding and it sure applies to living with and loving a man. Above all, never, never nag, for nagging has ruined more marriages, or at least taken the joy out of them, than any other single factor. * * * . MEN ARE TERRIBLY PROUD OF being male. Nothing hurts their self-esteem more than a hint that they might be considered the least bit sissified. That's why it took generations to convince men that housework isn't for women only and then it was really the passing of the old-fashioned hired girl that turned the trick. Men are.more hairy than women (except in the scalp), they have deepeir, voices and they are much stronger. It's a good thing to admire all these peculiarly male attributes. It will not only flatter your man; you may even get a lot of heavy furniture moved just by admiring his strong, strong, muscles. * * * WHEN MEN GET ANGRY THEY NEED physical force to let off steam. This is true because by custom they are denied the feminine luxury of a good cry. It's a little antisocial to go around hitting people so they have to work off their mad by hitting inanimate objects, shouting and using objectionable language. Or by taking it out on their wife. * * * ON MANY OCCASIONS A HUSBAND will come hoite and raise an awful fuss about a skimpy meal or a sloppy living room when it's really an inefficient employee, a critical boss or a difficult customer thats eating him. Or he might be worrying about bills, the raise in prices or a deadline contract. And, there's always an outside chance that he's >angry because the meal really is skimpy or the living room actually messy. * * * THE DOUBLE STANDARD is still very much in operation even it women have long since gained the vote. What's sauce for the gander is not sauce for the goose! A man may consider profanity excusable as long as it comes out of his mouth, not his wife's. It's o.k. it he whistles at a pretty girl, but she'd better not talk too long to another guy at a party. He thinks he's just as attractive as he ever was when he sits around with his shoes off, unwashed and sporting a three days growth of beard, She's supposed to look glamorous — fix her hair and put on some lipstick. And a purely male extravagance never seems to put the family budget out of kilter the way the purchase of some feminine frippery does. YOU'LL BE HAPPIER IF YOU just accept this double standard and not try to fight it..It applies to many more fields than faithfulness and morality. Men expect women to be a little more refined, a lot more virtuous, much less impatient and infinitely more understanding than they arc. And trying to live up to cur part of the double standard gives us gals such a lovely feeljng of superiority! MEN ARE AN INTERESTING, sometimes exasperating and always worthwhile subject to try to understand. Apply yourself to it as if your life depended on it — for it does. At least, the happiness of your marriage does and Chat's an awfully important part of life. NOW, IS ALL THIS INFORMATION on understanding men perfectly clear to you brides? Because if it is, maybe you can turn around and explain it to me. « * * * MY APOLOGIES GO TO Mrs David Friets of Bancroft, who wrote about the 90th birthday of a former Algona lady, Miss Emma> Adolphson of Fort Dodge. There was a mix-up in getting my mail' ?£ i?' y ,^ e tlme l r ? ccived the lL>t ter, the column was written and he birthday past.
