6-Algona (la.) Uppfcr D«i Moiri«» Thursday, June 8, 1967 EDITOR'S NOTE - This column of Woman's World is a reprint taken from the Thursday, July 19, 1951 issue of the Algona Upper Des Moines ONE OF THE MINOR AMERICAN pastimes is the giving of advice. It doesn't matter whether or riot this advice is heeded, we still dish it out. It's so much easier to tell other people what to do than to pay attention to our own affairs. - o - IN ALMOST EVERY WOMAN'S magazine, some of the general magazines and the newspapers, a great deal of space is devoted to telling some woman what to do about some man. First they tell a girl how to get a man to bite, then the bride is advised the correct method of fretting him firmly established on the Jiook and from then on it's how to keep him reeled in. - o - IT SEEMS TO ME, THAT ONE OF THE first things a man might as well realize is that from the time he's five until he is old and feeble he i.s always <,;mng to have to explain to some woman just why he didn't come home sooner. After all it isn't much harder to think up explanations for the little woman about those last minute things that came up at the office than it was to tell Mom about the game of Cops and Kol>l>ers that made him late to supper. MY FRIEND, OPHELIA, THE KITCHEN cynic, says, "At the altar she stops making over him and starts making him over." Wives have known this for a long time. It would bt pretty dull to have a husband so perfect he didn't need a little improvement. You bridegrooms who don't have a few little faults had letter acquire some quick. You don't want to spoil your wife's fun. - o - IN THE MONEY DEPARTMENT, IT'S the husband's job to make it first and the wife's job to make it last. When the little woman complains about hubby not^ielping with the housework, the standard and time-honored comeback is, "It's my job to earn the living and yours to run the house." This may get the rolling pin thrown at your head, but at least you can 1* sure you are not pioneering a new utterance. - o - ANOTHER TIP IN THE FINANCIAL department- for goodness sake, give her an allowance. Something that she can spend any old way she pleases without accounting to you. I don't care if she has access to your checking account and you have $100,000 in the bank, give her something she can call her own, even if if s just fifty cents a week. You may find that if she feels she can waste it as she wants to she will end up by spending it on the kids or the house. WHEN IT COMES TO GIFTS, DID YOU know that a single rosebud has been known to be a much more effective romantic offering than a full dozen, long-stemmed American Beauties? Especially if it is not her anniversary or birthday. Several little unexpected gifts are worth much more than one conventional type even though the latter may cost lots more money. Another attention that seldom fails to flatter a wife is remembering the anniversary of your first date together. Just be careful you don't get it mixed up with something that happened during the time you were engaged to someone else! - o - MANY ARE THE MARITAL BATTLES that were started over a husband's real or imaginary flirting with other women. It's too much to expect of a wife to remember that if she hadn't caught her husband flirting, she might never have caught him. She likes to think you are attractive to some other woman besides herself even if you are, to an unpredjudiced eye, no Cassanova. You might try mentioning once in awhile the fact that when a man stops looking at, and appreciating, feminine beauty—lie might just as well be dead. This doesn't excuse any real straying from the reservation. The husbands who regularly assure their wives that they still love her very much have very little trouble with jealousy. - o - WOMEN OFTEN MAKE THE STATEMENT THAT men are "just little boys grown tall". This way of thinking always nauseates me, mainly, I guess, because you never hear anyone excusing a woman's foibles just because she is "a little girl grown tall". But if after careful research, you decide you have a wife to whom the boyish type appeals, you may be able to get away with all kinds of things and blame it on the "little boy" in you, - o - WOMEN HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO USE water-power as a weapon. They turn on the tears and melt some big, strong man's resistance. Personally, I have never found crying very effective-all it ever got me was a swollen face and a runm nose. But husbands should know that tears are not always used merely as a feminine weapon. Sometimes a gal cries, when she is happy, when something is very beautiful or when she is sad. Frequently, even she doesn't know why she is bawling. We just have to have a good cry and get it out of our systems. - o - THERE WILL BE MANY TIMES WHEN \ou will think that none but the brave can live with the fair. You may take heart in knowing that Die old saw about marriage being a fifty-fifty proposition is simply not true! The real ratio is more like seventy-thirty. Seventy percent responsibility for success in marriage is up to the woman, thirty percent to the man. Just stv to it that you hold up you thirty percent, husbands! GRACE PLANES Sixteen year old Robert Wendel of Manchester recently displayed his collection of model planes he has built with help from his father. Of those dis- played he had a new radio-controlled model airplane with a 4 1/2 foot wiugspan, a gas engine plane, control line planes and gliders. Two of the models are stunf 60 miles an hour.
