Heart Cftlrli-r Sews Want Ada There's nothing like a vacation r pi ably vice versa. But here's the perfect vacation companion from a woman's point of view. He'd be content to do the driving In. easy stages, instead of setting certain number of miles to be covered each day, even though It means setting the alarm for 5 o'clock each morning. He'd read his own road maps Instead of piling them all in Mama's lap and expecting her to keep him Informed and blaming her for any wrong turn. He'd get hungry at the same time she does—or at least be gracious about stopping to eat when she begins to notice "nice.clean-look- Ing" restaurants. He'd prefer a lodge with meals screed, to roughing it in a more picturesque spot where Mama has to go right on cooking three meals a day. Would Be Chterful About Stopping He wouldnt act like a martyr when Mama wants to stop long enough in a city they're passing through to call up an old school mate, or give a telephoned message to the friend of a friend. He'd let the family take their time sight-seeing. He wouldn't drive so fast that his favorite back-seat driver is exhausted by nightfall from putting on non-exisUnt brakes all day.
