FILING CABINETS - 2 or 4 Drawer , And Of Course The Finest Gift Of All TYPEWRITERS or ADDING MACHINES COLUMNS AND COLUMNS OF NEWSPAPER and magazine space have been devoted to advice for brides. There is very little advice to the bridegroom written, Presumablv, he already knows what to do on his wedding day and is perfectly resigned to letting the little tfroman make all the home adjustments. Heaven knows the bride gets plenty of advice but what is snuce for the goose should also be sauce for the gander. To remedy the situation n bit, I mean to give some advice to the bridegroom. * * » . THE FIRST THING BRIDEGROOMS nre ndviscd to romembe is that women are different from men. After you get used to the idea, you may think that this is n pretty nice arrangement. Women nre much weaker than men and they can't, lift heiivy furniture, bu they sometimes have a will of iron. Women cry easier than mei and there are times when they are hard to goi nlnng wilh. Mer on the other hand, are more even tempered—they are ornery nl of the time. * * * A VOICE OF AUTHORITY IS VERY importnnt in establishing a new home. The first months after the wedding set the whol lone of your life together, so bridegrooms, take a tip from you Auntie Grace, and right after the ceremony, assert yourself! Tel her exactly how you would have your home run. Lay down som rules. Get this mailer of Ihe budget set up immediately. Mnke i very plain just who is going to be tho boss. When you get through picking yourself off the floor where you are sure to land after these ultimatums, the boss can go relax in the living room. Be sure she has a comfortable chair and that there are no drafts. * + * WHILE I WOULD NOT ADVISE bridegrooms to start off their marriage by breaking any of the Ten Commandments, there is one of them lhat can be stretched occasionally to make things run more smoothly around home. It's this mailer of lying. Honesty is the besl policy bul husbands don't have to tell the whole truth unless they are under oalh. You can forgel lo lell her about a few details, such as thai quarter put of your allowance you put in the baseball pool and still be quite truthful. You can say with perfect ronesty that you were working late al Ihe office and neglecl to add that you stopped off elsewhere on your way home. However, it is only fair to warn bridegrooms that some wives actually do put their husbands under oath while 'trying lo extort information. Then, perjury being such a crime, you had better tell the truth, the whole trulh and nolhing bul Ihe truth. Those Lie Detectors are uncanny in their accuracy. And she won't give up until she has delecled every lillle fib. * * * THERE ARE TIMES WHEN husbands are allowed to throw absolute verocily to the winds and that is in Ihe mailer of compliments. Compliments direcled lo your wife, lhal is. A wife will know in her heart that you are lying a lillle tail when you lell her slue is Ihe prelliest girl in the room, bul the words make her feel so good she won't even call you on it. * * * CHOICE OF WORDS, HOWEVER, is very important There are a few terms which mean approximately the same Ihing excepting when you are referring them to your wife. For example, you can call her a "duck" and get by with it, just don'l call her a '"goose". If you call her an "enchantress", she'll like it, but don't slip up and call her a "witch". Nor a hen instead of a chicken. I had betler warn you also that those rounded lines in her figure are referred to as "curves" not "bulges" and when you get ready to go out, never say, "I alvyays have liked you in lhat dress". If you don't want to get stuck 'for a whole new cfitfit, merely whislle appreciatively and say, "You look lovely". * * * SHARING IS VERY IMPORTANT in marriage. Bridegrooms are advised to learn this early. Housework is a . very demanding job and it is only fair that you should share some of it with her. he can help you with the dishes once in a while. She, in turn, hould be perfectly willing to share some of your paycheck with you. You should get at least fifty 'cents a week to spend any old way fou please. * * * THERE ARE TIMES WHEN EVEN THE most loving of couples nas a little spat. These serve a purpose for they sometimes bring hings out in the open thai have been oolhering for a long lime. They clear the air of tension. There are other advantages to a good marital quarrel. If your bride is the "not speaking" type, he rest and quiet you get for a couple of days is absolutely refresh- ng. And if she threatens to "go home to mother", let her. It's setter than having your mother-in-law come lo visil you. Al Ihe end of Ihe quarrel, afler she convinces you it was all your fault, apologize abjectly. Wear sack-cloth and ashes for a while & Ihen kiss and make up. That's Ihe very nicest part of all. * * * BRIDEGROOMS WOULD BE MUCH BETTER OFF if they had started using their heads a long time ago instead of wailing unlil another woman—Mother Nature—got her licks in. She sends out a lot of signals, making some woman who, after all is merely, "a rag () a bone and a hunk of hair" look so attractive lo you thai you'll mortgage your past, your present and your future to lake her as your bride. How many of you 1959 bridegrooms, for example, can honeslly claim to being absolutely sensible, cool and calculating about that altar trip? Did you find out how many of her teelh needed filling before she opened her mouth to say, "Yes"? It'll cost you denial bills laler. Were you sure she knew her way around Ihe kitchen lo more lhan make a nice balch of fudge before you proposed housekeeping? Are you sure she had already had her appendix oul and that you won't have to finance it out of your hospilal insurance plan? I thought not. But you went ahead and got married anyway, so you really have only yourself to blame * * '* „ WE , LL< YOUR AUNTIE GRACE wishes you 1959 bridegrooms all the luck in the world. And the very best to your lovely brides, also. In, spite of all the advrce I've given, and it just might possibly sound a little cynical, marriage is the best possible stale for a man and a' woman. And Father, a bridegroom of the pasl, agrees with me. At least he had betler. * * * BRIDE'S BISCUITS HAVE LONG been the. subjecl of jokes. Traditionally they are heavy, sedden and cause ptomaine poisoning. I here is no reason why the bridegroom can't lake over in the biscuit department, and retire those worn out jokes This week's recipe as for Bridegroom's Biscuits: 2 cups commercial biscuit mix % cups milk. Combine the mix and the milk.'Stir with fork jusl unlil dough follows fork around bowl, to make a soft dough. For rolled biscuits, knead dough gently Va minute on lightly floured board, Roll to y 2 inch thickness. Cut into rounds with floured culler or knife Bake on ungreased sheet in 450 degree oven 10 to 12 minutes, sides touching for soft biscuits, separated for crusty.
