Capes Go 'Cloak and Dagger' * WE, THE WOMEN * B> KBlb MlUeM N£» 8Lilt Writer It's Better if Husband Doesn't Talk About Work "My husband never tells me anything al "t his work," complains a young wife. "It's humiliating to always have to admit lie hasn't told me about this or that when other wives of men in his company discuss whal Is going on at the office." It needn't be humiliating, ytj i know. It all depends on how you admit you don't know any office gossip. If you make the admission sound as though you're resentful about It, the other wives will probably feel superior to you. But If you say matter-of-factly, when a.sked if you know a bit of news, "No. Jim never talks much about the office at home," then you're making a statement of fact that calls for no apology. You're actually jiving your husband a butid-up. Just remember this, when you feel resentful about your husband's not sharing office gossip with you: No woman ever hurt her husband bv not knowing any office Kos,sl|> Can Hurt Husband's Career Bui plenty of wives have hurt their husbands' careers because they knew things they were tempt- letl ct? to tell or were eager to other wives know they knew. It may be fun for a wife to "in the know"—but it's a big responsibility. The wife who doesn't know of-| flee gossip never has to worry fo: fear she'll let something slip sin shouldn't, or admit knowing rsaut .hing her hucbanrt really sho'uiK liave discussed outside the offlci So it's really no handicap to woman not to know everything :hat goes on in her husband's of. 'ice. And It may be a point In he nusband's favor—so far as his Jo Is concerned. W and jray plaid tw«d, cloaks skirt and sweater eVisembk.

One of Ihe outstanding of these portrait-inspired wraps is a Monle Sano-deslgned great coat of fuschia and black checked chinchilla which looks like a cape. Its tail collar, deceptively full silhouette, and lively color add a new note lo Iht.s fall's splendor. , in black Also ready to cut a swathe on the autumn scene ns another romantic style: the steamer cape.
