ACROSS FROM NEW PARKING LOT IN ALGONA ^ COLUMNS AND COLUMNS OF NEWSPAPER and magazine space have been devoted to advice for brides. There is very little advice to the bridegroom written. Presumably, he already knows what to do on his wedding day and is perfectly resigned to letting the'little woman make all the home adjustments. Heaven knows the bride gets plenty of advice but what is sauce for the goose should also be sauce for the gander. To remedy tine situation a bit, I mean to give some advice to the bridegroom. THE FIRST THING BRIDEGROOMS are advised to remember is that women are different from men. After you get used to the idea, you may think that this is a pretty nice arrangement. Women are much weaker than men and they can't lift heavy furniture, but they sometimes have a will of iron. Women cry easier than men and there are times when they are hard to get along with. Men, on the other hand, are more even tempered—they are ornery all of the time. * * * A VOICE OF AUTHORITY IS VERY important in establishing a new home. The first months after the wedding set the whole tone of your life together, so bridegrooms, take a tip from your Auntie Grace, and right after the ceremony, assert yourself! Tell her exactly how you would have your home run. Lay down some rules. Get this matter of the budget set up immediately. Make it very plain just who is going to be the 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 that can be stretched occasionally to make things run more smoothly around home. It's this matter of lying. Honesty is the best policy but husbands don't have to tell the whole truth unless they are under oath. You can forget to tell her about a few details, such as that quarter out 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 at the office and neglect 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 to extort information. Then, perjury being such a crime, you had better tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Those Lie Detectors are uncanny in their accuracy. And she won't give up until she has detected every little fib. * * * THERE ARE TIMES WHEN husbands are allowed to throw absolute verocity to the winds and that is in the matter of compliments. Compliments directed to yourAvife. that is. A wife will know in her heart that you are lying a little bit when you tell her she is the prettiest girl in the room, but the words make her feel so good she won't even call you on it. ••I # . * CHOICE OF WORDS, HOWEVER, is Very important. There are a few terms which mean approximately the same thing excepting when you are referring them to your wife. For example, you can call her a /'duck" and get by with it, just don't 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 better 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 always have liked you in that dress". If you don't want to get stuck for a whole new outfit, merely whistle 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 She can help you with the dishes once in a while. She, in turn, should 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 you please. * * * THERE ARE TIMES WHEN EVEN THE most loving of couples has a little spat. These serve a purpose for they sometimes bring things out in the open that have been bothering for a long time. They clear the air of tension. There are other advantages to a good marital quarrel. It' your bride is the "not speaking" type, the rest and quiet you get for a couple of days is absolutely refreshing. And if she threatens to "go home to mother", let her. It's better than having your mother-in-law come to visit you. At the end of the quarrel, after she convinces you it was all your fault, apologize abjectly. Wear sack-cloth and ashes for a while & then kiss and make up. That's the very nicest part of all. * * * BRIDEGROOMS WOULD BE MUCH BETTER OFF if they had started using their heads a long time ago instead of waiting until 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 to you that you'll mortgage your past, your present and your future to take her as your bride. How many of you 1959 bridegrooms, for example, can honestly claim to being absolutely sensible, cool and calculating about that altar trip? Did you find out how many of her teeth needed filling before she opened her mouth to say, "Yes"? It'll cost you dental bills later. Were you sure she knew her way around the kitchen to more than make a nice batch of fudge before you proposed housekeeping? Are you sure she had already had her appendix out and that you won't have to finance it out of your hospital insurance plan? I thought not. But you went ahead and got married anyway, so you really have only yourself to blame. * ' * c WELL, YOUR AUNTIE GRACE wishes you 1959 bridegrooms all the kick in the world. And the very best to your lovely brides, also. In spite of all the advice I've given, and it just might possibly sound a little cynical, marriage is the best possible state for a man and a woman. 'And Father, a bridegroom of the past, agrees with me. At least he had better. * * # BRIDE'S BISCUITS HAVE LONG been the subject of jokes. Traditionally they are heavy, sodden and cause ptomaine poisoning. There is no reason why the bridegroom can't take over in the biscuit department, and retire those worn out jokes. This week's recipe is for Bridegroom's Biscuits: 2 cups commercial biscuit mix % cups milk. Combine the mix and the milk. Stir with fork just until dough follows fork around bowl, to make a soft dough. For rolled biscuits, knead dough gently \'s minute on lightly floured board. Roll lo ¥2 inch thickness. Cut into rounds with floured cutter or knife. Bake on ungreased sheet in 450 degree oven 10 to 12 minutes, sides touching for soft biscuits, separated for crusty. Makes about 12. For drop biscuits, drop dough from spoon on greased sheet and bake as for rolled biscuits. —GRACE. Party Farewell Honors Folks Moving East Li'koia — Last Sunday the T. A.
