If So, Men Are to Blame The lattst visitor to lh« United* St«tes to tell American .women what's *rong with them is on English member ol Parliament who says they're "bossy" »nd that they "rule the roo«l." If American women rule ihe roost, It's because they've become specialists in home management. 'Hie American husband leu his wife decide how to bring up Junior not because he is browbeaten Into it, but because It's she who is Interested enough In Junior to read up on child psychology, join a child study club, and go to lectures on parenthood. The American woman has made herself Ihe family specialist in child training because Pap» just isn't Interested enough to go to all that bother. The American husband lets his wife decide what kind of house they are going to live In and how it li going to be decorated because here again Mania has educated herself on such matters, papa can't very well argue with her if all he can say Is: "I know what I like." Men Apathetic About Social Life The American husband lets his wife choose their friends and run their social life because lie nevef gives It any thought. He may be fed up with stuffy dinner parties and evenings of bridge, but he doesn't Jump in and make constructive suggestions for adding * little variety to their social life. Tile American husband turns his pay cheek over to his wife for budgeting, not because his wife demands that he fork it over, but because he doesn't want to be bothered with paying bills, or figuring out how to make ends meet. If the American woman wants to hold down a job the American husband Is willing to let her. not because he is afraid to take a stand against, but because he finds it pleasant to have a lltlle help with the bread-winning. So if the American women rule the roost, they're earning the right to do so. You don't take over the leadership in any job without being willing to work hard at- it. American women are willing and American men aren't. Obituaries Mrs. Jim Millhorn Diet In Hospital in Memphis Mis.

Wesley Thomas, cubirmter for Ihe pack, said that the group intends to convert two former army barracks Into a clubhouse for pack and den meetings. Other packs have den meetings at home of den mothers, said Mr- Thomas, but the limited quarters at the airbase necessitated a meeting place for this pack. In addition, the workshop for fathers and cub sons housed in the club house will replace home and garage workshops which, because of nil- base housing facilities, are at a minimum in that area. Mr Thomas explained. "Cubbing is a parent-boy relationship." he said today. The plan Is for both fathers ami sons to use the workshop to work on cub achievements and to learn use of tools.
