By Ruth Millclt NEA Staff Writer "When men are friends or con- , genial business associates why can't! their wives get along?" T am asked by a puzzled husband. He claims that when he suggests having the Browns or Smiths over for dinner his wife goes into a lot of feminine explaining about how the evening would be a tolal flop because "Mrs. Brown and Mrs. Smith can't stand each other." That man has a point all right. Too many women do refuse to make an effort to get along amicably with the wives of men their husbands find congenial. The complicates social life needlessly and often results In a wife's cutting herself and her husband out of many a pleasant social evening because a hostess think they won'i "mix" with the other guests plans to entertain. Furthermore, in some csises this becomes K distinct business handicap to the husband. He may be held back in his job or professioti by ins wife's inability to get along with :he wives of his associates. So even though Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Brown might never have chosen each other for friends, they are probably making R mistake in not making an effort to establish a pleasant relationship. Inlimnle Friendship Unnecessary For it is never necessary for v.'ives of good friends or close business associates to be intimate friends. All they have to do to keep from hurting the relationship their husbands have is to find some mutual field of Interest and build thler association on that. If they are too unlike for real friendship, they can still manage lo be friendly—if they are willing to make the effort. At least they can ip»t each other cordially enough ;o that other women don't hesitate .0 invite both couples over for ttin- icr or nn evening's conversation. It's reully the wife's job to l.c able to establish a pleasant social relationship with the wife of any man her husband wants to see socially, cither for reasons of friendship or business. And any woman ivith an opcr mind and charming manners won'l find the job too difficult. M'Math Vetoes Extension Of Effective Date of School Merger Measure LITTLE ROCK, March 23. f/I'j— Governor McMatli lias vetoed a bill which would have extended effective date of the initiated school district reorganization act to June 1.
