When they were married It was agreed trnt the wife would continue working for "as long as necessary," After two years of marrlngc the wife keeps talking About want- Ing to onlt her Job and while they could get by on his salary alone, the husband doesn't seem to want the full responsibility for supporting a family thrust on him suddenly. He snys he can't undcrtnnd why his wife Is trying to buck out on her part of "the bargain. 9 ' Evidently thnt "as long as necessary" was too vngue and has different meanings for husband Find wife. But since the original understanding was vnguc, lei's look at the present iitimtlon. The wife may have any of n number of good reasons for wanting to quit work Holding down two Jobs may have turned out to be more difficult .han she expected ami she feels :hnt she could be n far better iiomc-mnker If she could devote her full time to that job. Or, perhaps, the husband Isn't sharing the Job of homemnklng with her, ns she expected him to. Maybe the fnn of helping with the dishes, etc., hns worn off after two rears of marriage and he expects .o sit back and relax when he gets ome from work like a man whose wife has bad the whole day to do [he housework. Or may lie the wife's intuition tells her that If she doesn't quit work now she'll never be able to. She may have seen examples In her o wn of I Ice of cou p les wh o n eve r find Just .the right time to decide they can -get by' on one Income. Or it that the. wife is )ust tired of working nnd thinks no\s that she has got her husband she doesn't have to follow through on her .promise to hold down a job t'tks tonK'Bs necessary.' 1 -•-, *? - If her real reason Is the the husband .may have R right to feel resentment. But If he woulc rather feel like a man, no matter what her reason for xvantlng lo qull work, he ought to agree to It without protest, so long as they can manage to get by somehow on hi salary. A wife's working because she wants to Is one thing. A wife's working because her husband expects her to Is something entirely different.

By ALICIA HART, NEA Beauty Editor j If a controversy rages in your amily over" proper footwear for teen-agers, settle it with a remark hat those against, loafers and those against "high" heels are both wrong. The main consideration, regardless of heels, is a firm but lexible sole to protect your feet and uppers that support the bones without constriction. • Your flats should fit as well as four other shoes. Don't be a sloppy loe with torn moccasins run down at the heels. This dates you as a teen-ager of five years ago. The coming thing Is neatness and smartness. Keep your loafers polished and in good repair. A one-Inch heel, ns compared to ground-hugger, gives your feet the best support when tramping fields or pounding pavements. High heels — well under three inches — will not Injure your feet If you save them for occasions when you heed not do much walk- Ing. Worn (or walking any length of time, they will ruin posture nnd cause fatigue. Look for pumps and sandals"" that have graceful Louis heels broadening out slightly at Uie base lot safety. They look much higher than they actually are, thus giving th& nnkle and leg the slimming effect of a high heel without the disco/nfor,t that. a_ threerlucJt 1 .elevation may cause. It is good for your feet to change heel heights often. Your calf muscles become shortened if high heels nre worn too long, and they cannot stretch out without acute discomfort when you return suddenly to flats. ' A short girl can Increase her height with a heel but if it is too high it will only emphasize her shortness by contrast. A less obtrusive lift will give her' height more in .keeping with her leg length. Tall girls, at the other extreme, need' not avoid heels because of their height, but can keep in mind that tallness is considered very chic.
