After the reading Obstinate Parents Dear Miss Dix: My parents ob jected to my marriage from the beginning they felt I should have'wed someone more to their liking. Yet io me, Phil is everything a girl could want. True, neither his social nor financial position is topnotch, but he is matchless in kindness, co-operation and thoughtfulness. I am 22, my husband is '24 and we've been married a year, so it can't be said that we were too young to know our own minds. We met in high-school days. Mother and Dad claim they could have picked an outstanding man for me, one esteemed in the community. 1 am sure this kind of marriage would never'have appealed to me. How can I assure my parents that I am completely -happy, .that Phil and I love each other? They won't even let him in their hom,e Consequently, I am beginning to begrudge the time spent visiting my family. We can no longer; meet on common ground. When they mention Phil, it is in such disparaging terms that I am greatly upset when I leave. How can I change their opinion, and persuade them to be friendly to my man? CARLOTTE Y. Small Minds Answer: You might as.well.try to change the stars in their courses as to alter the minds of prejudiced persons. You can present your family with incontestable proof of Phil's excellent record as a husband, but their small minds will be Incapable of appreciating, much less admitting, his good qualities. Nevertheless, in spite of their faults, they are stilly your folks, and you ought to continue to pay at least token respect to them. When they criticize your husband, however, they discourage respect. In order to avoid too much friction, stop the next word of censure by stating that you didn't come t'c hear your husband maligned, and that if they expect you to continue calling, they must cease their unjust criticism of him When you visil your folks, look your very loveliesi and they will soon be convincec that you did, after all, marry ' a good provider. Prayer is the only force that will accomplish a charge in your family's attitude. In the meantime, it Is' certainly tragic to contemplate the happiness thrown away by stubborn people. It would be so much easier and nicer to live in lower yourself by doing it. Home wreckers are notoriously deaf to pleas, reason or decency Don't ever bring up .the subject,to your husband. As a fopfb of conversation, let her existarice go unnoticed. Your experience is & terrific test of character 'for, a wife. BRIGHTNESS-Pretty Sandy Wirth, of Miami, Fla., named "Miss Light," is helping the Lions Club raise funds to aid the blind. She is also the shining light of the University of Miami's baton twirlers. Dear Miss Dix: Last summer 1 became engaged, the event taking place/on my. 19th birthday. We did not announce the. engagement, but kept It a secret, .especially from my parents., Jffe have now set our wedding date ; at Easter, but up to the '.present; .time pur plans have not been mentioned to my father.

Rather than ask/my father/he suggests that we run; away ".and "make him like It,".<:• .•'•/"•;;.:'_."•'... CONFUSED Answer: 5 Though there Is an age at which parental-consent ceases to be a requirement for a marriage license, 1'Tiave yet to bear of the age at "which" courtesy and consideration can be thrown into the discard. Your fiance's boorishness is unbelievable. 'What sort of family relationship do you expect to establish on this precedent? Do you realize that the same lack of consideration • will undoubtedly fall to your lot after you marry him? If your father isn't asked to give you -away, how in the world do you accept an invitation that ;was never given? I am afraid you not your father, will be the one wHo will have "to take it and like it" once, the knot is tied. A word to the wise. etc. Production of Oil Increases TULSA, Okla.

It takes character to rise above such petty surroundings; I hope you and Phil have it. Dear Miss Dix: My father has given me permission to date a certain boy, whenever I go out with tive wife and mother in my early thirties, Two years ago my hus> band's disposition and behavior began to undergo a decided change. His working hours had always been irregular, but then he stayed away from home much more than he had previously. Also, he became irritable, argumentative ,and his handkerchiefs occasionally \bore lipstick stains. I asked if there was someone else, which he denied, A few months ago I had a telephone call from a woman who said she and my husband had been going out together for some time, and she added, she had no intentions of giving him up, When I told him of the call, he admitted it was true. He promised to break off with the woman, and for a time he apparently kept his word. Then, his late hours, week-ends away from home and bad disposition recurred. Of course, I know he is keeping company with the .anonymous tele, phone caller again. He is seldom home and never takes me out.

He comes to our house almost every day, and by npw has- just about taken over the place. He practically orders my daughters to get refreshments for him, takes off his shoes and puts his feet on the sofa even takes off his shirt and goes around in his undershirt on occasion.
