'***« w,I.« i.v*. iw THIS IS THE SEASON OF ROMANCE arid weddings. Countless couples are seeing the day to say, "I Do" and Lohengrin, ChantiWy 'Ince and four-tiered cakes arc popular items of conSlderallion. Tho Algtwia Upper Des Moin'cs takes note of this with a special bride and groom section .this week, and almost everybody has at least one wedding in their pla'ns for the near future. '•"'•' * * * ' JUST AS ALL BRIDES ARE beautiful, all wedding gifts are wonderful. There are blankets and sheets, pots and electric 'frying pans, sterling sillver and s'.ainiless steel tableware, china and pottery, crystal and bedspreads, toasters and steak knives. It often seems to me that about'.the only tiling a bride doesn't .get at her wedding is a good guide that tells her how ,to henpeck a husband. Every wife should have at least one of these I - * * * IT IS NOT THAT THERE IS insufficient research material on hcnpecking, for ithere are ample examples all around. Every wife has a few tricks of her own and some have been known to develop henpecking into a devastatingly lelthal art. The need i's for somebody to go around 'and gather up this material, get it down in black and white, so that henpecking, like boxing, can have its own Marquis of Qtiecnsbury rules. **'*'• A GOOD RULE TO START WITH could 'be, Put the Ring in his Nose Early. The first year of Marriage is the best chance you will ever have to train your husband in the way you want him ito gp. If you expect him to help with .the dishes every night, hand him a towel right after the wedding supper. If you expect him to com'e at your call, show him right now who's boss. Let him know, gently, but firmly, his exact place in the home; reward him sparingly for good behavior and punish him promptly when he gets out of line. ' * ' » »''•.' ' . THIS ADVICE CAN BE USED TWO ways — in the training of husbands and in the .training of poodles. ' * * * TAKE A TIP FROM THOSE LABELS on the wedding gift towels marked His and Hers, and,apply it to your henpecking. Especially when -it comes to ithe root of all evil — money. Every time something is spenit for luxury that is His; be sure to see to it that you get Here. When he spends ten bucks for some fishing equipment, you take ten bucks for a bottle of perfume. If he goes on a stag ball game weekend, you take an equal amount to buy a new.dress. ,» * * BE SURE YOU GET EVERY biit of Her share. This may be very on those long cold nights at the poor house where you may land some day if you follow this advice. * # * , . TOLERATE NO NONESENSE OBOUT HIS SPENDING EVENINGS OUT with the boys. A woman's place is in the home and so is a husband's — when he is not out working 'to support it. He can go out, but only if you go along and to the ptoves you enjoy, with the friends that you pick. Check up on him frequently when he says he is working late at the office. Allow him ample time for the (trip home — say five minutes — and if he ha« not arrived within 1 that time, start telephoning the joints to see if he has stopped jn. Talk loudly on these calls because it raises his standing with the boys. They know then that he has a wife who really takes care of him. * * * THIS IS A VERY EFFECTIVE system. It has been successfully used by the wardens at Sing Sing and Alcatraz for quite some .time. » » * ,, PROBABLY THE BEST WAY of henpecking flnow to woman is e Belittling System. Fjnd.out somelthing..he is a little proud,of Mke s 'woodworking; his'singing or'his«big "blue eyes and then, start tearing it down with quick little' jibes. He'll soon find out that it jsn't much to be proud of after aid. Always tell the punch lines of his jokes for him and be sure ito save up those funny stories about the dumb things he does to tell when there's a crowd. They'll all laugh when he squirms! , r •'* • * *.•'.-.'.YOU. TOO, CAN SUCCEED AT BELITTLING. Other wives have become emininently successful at it. It wasn't their fault thai their husbands escaped 'into the arms of something soft and prdtty. It ivas just that the hussy flattered his ego and made him feel dike a big, brave man instead of a worm. * * * THE DEEP FREEZE is'a good disciplinary .measure. The deepfreeze is a variation, and lain extension on the Not speaking routine. You can get along with the Not Speaking for 'a limited time only, because there is danger of starving to death at your own dinner table when something is out of your reach. The Deep' Freeze allows you to ,lnlk, but only in the most exaggeratedly polite terms, and .thus it is allowable to say, icily, "Will you please pass the potatoes?" And if there is a third person present, talk through him. * * * WE HAVE COVERED ONLY A few of the major points in the art of henpecking husbands. You'll Ithink of lots more all by yourself, such as forgiving but not forgetting, taking digs at your in-laws and hitting your husband's boss for a raise. * * * . ' IT IS ONLY FAIR TO WARN YOU though that the pure food and drug 1 law requires that all bottles of poison be plainly labeled as such, And much of this henpecking advice is pure po'iion. It's poison ii you plan to build a reasonably happy home, * * »' IF YOU SHOULD ACCIDENTLY GET some of this poison into your marriage — and we all seem to do this at one time or another — there is a successful antidote. It consists of generous portions of forgiveness and understanding, mixed with plain,, undiluted un* selfishness. * * * HUSBANDS AHE, ON THE WHOLE, slightly imperfect creatures. So are wives. Husbands are often wrong and wives dan evert be off kilter too ! A wife can be totally right on sorne subject of dissenstion; she can insislt on it,and it may prove some point or oilier, But it can also leave you pretty lonely, » * * < IT'S NICE TO HAVE A MAN around the house. It's even nicer jl he likes being -there. A BRIDE IS ONE WHO should make sacrifices for her husband, but not in the form of burnt offerings. It's not too hard to cook these days what with all the good cook books ^nd the frozen and canned foods. Whether or not you are a bride, you might like this recipe for Rhubarb Pudding: 3 or 4 cups cut up rhubarb % cup sugar 10 marshaldpws • Combine and put on bottom of 10 x 10 pan.
