By Ruth Mlllctt NEA Staff Writer WHAT every woman should know about women: Never trust a woman who tells you something someone else has told 1 her in confidence, even though she makes the flattering statement that she woulcln' tell anyone else in he world but she knows she can trust yon.

A happily married woman rare ly causes her women friends' any trouble. Only a woman who Is inclinct to catllness herself looks beneatl .nother woman's remarks for dden meaning or dirty dig. The; Don't Forget IN a little while you may forge quarrel you had with you lusband. but the woman yon to] bout It won't forget It In 20 years Any woman who refuses to te ler age rims the risk of havln ler woman friends think she der than she Is and wonder ic isn't older than her hnsban If you want to keep your gocx pinion of women, avoid them ley returned to Memphis this morn- Ing to be with Mr», ^hlbley, who was In an automobile accident last night near Turrell.
