maifowXifii^Mfr I AM A GREAT ADMIRER OF THE advice to the lovelorn columns. I don't do so well at solving my own problems, but 1 sure can decide what some unknown character should do about her particular dilemma. However, the way this type of advice column has been the past few years, Advice to the Lovelorn is no longer an apt name. Although some of the letters are from girls seeking knowledge on how to handle their boy friends, a great deal more qre from wives trying to find out how to put up with their husbands. A WIFE WHO HAS NEVER had a bit of trouble understanding or coping with her husband simply does not, nor never has existed. Most of us love the darned fools; a few of us merely tolerate them; and we all try to get along with them with as little mayhem as possible. This takes a bit of doing. * * * BEHIND EVERY GREAT MAN, they say, is a woman. Through all the ages of history there have been a few men who are outstanding in their time. These men may have invented mechanical i wonders; they may have saved nations from folly by their political i maneuvers. But I would be willing to wager that when every one I of these great men got home, his stature shrank a little, and he | became to'his wife, just another husband doing all the things husbands do that make them difficult to live with. And it also could be that being married to a genius is even more difficult than living with an ordinary mortal man. * * * IT'S TOO BAD THERE WASN'T an advice column during the times some of our great men were living. If there had been one, [ I think their wives would have written some mighty good letters. I Now, if I were running such a column back in the early days ! of our country, I might have received this inquiry postmarked, Philadephia: . * * * DEAR GRACE: WHAT SHALL I do about my husband? The first time I saw him he was walking up main street chawing on a loaf of French bread. I laughed at him then, and perhaps I should have kept on laughing, but instead I married the guy. Time after time, I have told him to go fly a kite. Lately he has taken nie literally and he dbes just that—tlies a kite! I wouldn't mind it so much if he didn't keep stealing my door key to attach to the kite. Half the time I am locked out of my house. H.e just laughs at me and says he is working on something called electricity. When' he isn't doing that he is messing around with an idea he has for a magazine he wants to put out every Saturday evening. I tell him his Post A'on't last, but he keeps on writing it anyway. Who wants to stay home and\ read on Saturday night? That's the night most husbands take their wives out on the town. Dear Grace, what shall I do? Signed, Mrs B. Franklin. ANSWER: DEAR MRS FRANKLIN, Try to be patient. Perhaps he will get around to paying the light bill and then, he won't have to make his own electricity. As to the magazine, see if he can get one of my articles accepted for publication. ANOTHER LETTER I MIGHT have received if I had been running an advice column in early America, is this one: Dear Grace: I have been happily married to a silversmith for quite some time now. He has always been the soul of faithfulness but lately he has taken to running around nights. Just last week, he came home at four o'clock in the morning, his horse all in. a lather, and he was muttering, "One if by land, two if by sea"! Do> you'suppose he is seeing one hussy over in Concord and that there are two more of them waiting to get off the boat at Boston Harbor? What would you do in my case? Signed, Mrs P. Revere. ANSWER: DEAR MRS REVERE, Your husband is just going through a stage. He enjoys the attention he gets riding around at v jight waking/ up people. When the times settle down a bit, he will give up his nignt riding. Meanwhile, get him to sign everything he makes in his silver shop with his autograpt^/ Someday they wilt be worth a fortune. ""*" * * * I MIGHT HAVE RECEIVED THIS letter from Illinois: Deal- Grace, I have a husband who is very homely, but I, and several other people agree that he has a great deal of charm. He's a lawyer by trade, and for a hobby lie has debating. In spite of his having no education, he is every bit as good as my old boy friend, Mr Douglas. The trouble is, I am so sick of hearing my husband's corny jokes. If he tells that one about a man's legs supposed to be long enough to reach from his pants to the floor, I think I shall scream! People in the audience laugh and holler and call for more. But I just shrink in my skin. They haven't heard those punch lines as often as I have. What shall I do? Signed, Mrs A. Lincoln. ANSWER: DEAR MRS LINCOLN, Be patient. One day there will come along a whole new generation of people. They will have an entertainment medium they will call television. Hundreds of comedians will be telling those same jokes your husband tells and the punch lines will be the same, also. But by that time you won't have to listen to them for you'll be long gone. Besides there is a chance that your husband may do something that will make him even more famous than his jokes. * * * FARTHER BACK IN TIME, a wife in Jerusleum might have written this letter: Dear Grace, I am a woman living in a rather large household. I have a most attractive husband and he gives me a fabulous allowance for clothes, jewels and nicknacks. The trouble is, I see him so infrequently. When I am with him, .he vows he loves me. Ho pays me exlravagent compliments, orders up a silver bowl of fruit, presents me with a new model emerald necklace and hires a couple extra maidservants and manservants. Then I divi't see him for maybe three or four weeks. Grace, do you suppose he really loves me? Signed, Mrs King Solomon, Number 537. ANSWER: DEAR MRS SOLOMON, What with bowls of fruit, emerald necklaces, plenty of clothes and cleaning women, why should you worry? We should all have it so good! •> " * * * BECAUSE HUSBANDS HAVE ALWAYS been fussy about their clothes, I might have received this letter if I were writing and advice column many years ago: Dear Grace, My Husband is very particular about his .sliir'ts. 1 wash them by hand and I'm real careful about the amount of .starch in the collars. He's real fussy about the way they lit, too. Last month I made him 3 new shirts. 1 got the pattern from Mrs McGracly next door and my husband liked the color I chose. But did he ever have a fit about my sliches! He said they weren't fit to hold anything together. After I'd sat up half the night making flat felled seams, too! Then he went out to the shed and spent all day brooding over a pile of wheels and contraptions he's been collecting from the junk man. What shall I do, Grace? Signed, Mrs Singer. ANSWER: DEAR MRS SINGER, Have your husband watch the ads in your local newspaper. They sell ready-made shirts and they ure very nicely stitched. If you still insist on making shirts at home, perhaps you should take some sowing lessons. They have sewing centers and they'll teach you a lot of good tricks. If he still gives you trouble tell him to sew his own shirts! A LETTER I REALLY DID receive this week wasn't asking for any advice. It was from Margaret Durant who with her sister, Carrie and brother, Bill, is vacationing in Tucson. She said the UDM got there before they did because bli/.zards make for slow driving. The Durants had the pleasure- of hearing Jose Iturhi, world famous pianst in concert and aside from that they have been doing things they have clone before. This is their sixth winter vacation in the southwest. ^ t ^ IF YOU HAVE A YOUNG lady at your house who is a budding cook, chances are that she likes tu bake roll-out cookies.
