Smart Bride Registers With Stores Stainless Steel "Rates" HAPPY GIRL 1 Who'd ever Ihink that after the glorious honeymoon is over, and things settle down, she'd have to do anything so prosaic as "ironing." But girls who marry have a practical side, too, realizing that they might have to see that the "old man" looks presentable when he goes io work. That's why practical gifts like these are so welcome. Basis Of The "Home" - Some Good Appliances One of the most practical and modern ideas that emerges from the welter of romantic and traditional wedding preparations is the store gift registry. Every wise bride-to-be today checks on her local facilities and, just as soon as the day is set, hurries along to register. At the store, a trained salesgirl will help the bride choose the tableware, kitchenware and other house- wares of her preference and will note the designs and colors and other relevant details. All friends and relatives seeking advice on the perplexing problem of "what-to-give" can tactfully bo referred to the registry, where they will get discreet guidance on what has already been bought and what the bride really needs and wants. The gift registry assists beautifully in shower plans. The guests decide ahead of time how much to contribute. One of the gals usually gets elected to handle all details. APPRECIATION! Happy notes with nice gifls, such as this lifetime stainless steel knife set, give a warm feeling to the prospective bride. She can show her gratitude by writing thank you notes as soon as possible. The days when a girl started married life over a wash-tub and scrub-board are pas*. . . . and well they should be No marriage ever owed its success to wash-board back and red, chapped hands. Today, also, the ice-man is gone. Not that he was a very bad fellow, but he always kept tracking up the kitchen with sawdust. No —- today in 1957, a home starts up on an efficient basis — with both kitchen and laundry equipment so that Milady can get the household chores out of the way, with time for a leisurely visi t with other ladies at the super-market. There, while chatting, our heroine orders a beef quarter, which is easily tucked away at home in the freezer. Washing? That's a breeze! And exciting, too! The little lady just throws in the clothes, turns the dials, takes off, and lo and behold! the laundry is did. Poor old husband John — he's slaving away at work for all these things but then that's life in June, 1957.
