When he cames home at night and feels as though the prison doors were clinging shut. During the day, while he is gone, she and the children get along fine. They're happy and they have fun together. But when he is home it is a different household. What can she do about it? Well, she can go on enduring his nagging as she has in the pagt and try to console herself with the fact that she is just married to a grouch and that nothing she could do would please him. Maybe that is all she can do. But to an outsider it looks as though there may be another side to the story. To an outsider it looks as though maybe Papa is on the outside of the family circle — begin in — wanting to be a part of it, but too proud to admit it, and not knowing how to get attention except by being disagreeable and spoiling everyone else's fun. Lots She Can Oo If Ihat is how it is, there is a lot his wife can do about the situation. She can build him up to the children, pointing up what he does for them even if at first she has to add to the list by giving him credits for things she initiates herself. She can do many things to give him the feeling that he comes first with her, to overcome any idea he might have that the children always come first. She can refuse to match his long fac,e and ignore the nagging. In time he may see that there is no profit in being dfsagreeable. None of this is as easy as simply dismissing a man as a nagger and a grouch, but it should get much better results. How about giving it a full year's trial? girls of the district at their an­ nua] women's committee meeting, Vv'hich was in session here throughout the day. 15 Years Ago Today Miss Chesta Mitchell of Janesville, Wis., and Miss Dorcas Ann Mitchell of Milwaukee, Wis. are guests at the home of Mr and Mrs. Earl B.

"If« all right, Mrs. Dalyrimple. These men are going." 1 turned to Nanabarro. "Better run along." "A grand for the film," repeated Al Nanabarro to Nick Ricardo. Ricardo took It and Nanabarro reached into «hi9 pocket and counted out 10 $100 bills. Ricardo removed the film and handed it to Nanabarro and took the bills. Nanabarro turned to me and I gave him back his gun. "Get this straight, Marshall. That thing at Probably he was no bad guj.

"I had no part of that.** After he and his pals had gone, I mixed two drinks and handed one to Ricardo, who tooked pleasantly surprised. I pulled up chair and sat opposite him. "Too bad I didn't have the money to bid for the pix," "What pix?" Ricardo laughed. "Do you think I'd get anything worth printing in this kind of light, even with my lens and fast film? Nanabarro paid the highest price ever paid for a roll of blank film." Ricardo had been at the La JoUa Chib when Nanabarro had rounded up his UtUe party and the reporter had followed to see what was cooking. He found nsy front door jim- onied and my door unloctced. 'O.ook here, Marshall, you were in a bad way when I waltzed in with my little camera! You owe me seme cooperation. I doni want to see Taaaer run Star out the Uw business!

"You get around a lot more than I do, Ricardo. What do you know about Frannie Martin, lately Nanabar- ro's girl?" Bicardo leered. "That one! Listen, she might have sold Al the idea she was his girl, (nit she w«s anybody's girl any time the mood struck her. And she was as moody. It's a wonder Nanabarro didnl cool her long before he did!" "Maybe he did, and maybe he didn't. Maybe there's dn angle everybody doesn't know. Prannie Martin must have had quite a list of gentlemen friends. Can you name some special ones?" , Ricardo was into-ested. "Maybe you got something. There were a few of a very special kind. I remember a guy named Hodgson, % tank town banker downstate. He once gave Frannie a rocK as big as a headlamp, and she wore it right under Al's nose." "I dont think Banker HodgsOB is very interesting." "Well, there was a newly -rtch jerk that made his dough naaii- facturing cofnns, I ttunk. I eaat remember his name." Was he fat, the butt«r-baU type?" Bicardo's eyes lighted *Yett know bim, huh?"
