Mrs. w. M. Johnson. Attendance prizes were won by the Fourth and Eighth grades. One of the greatest faults of wives, I'm convinced from the letters they write me. is making mountains out of molehills. One wife couldn't sound more bitter about her husband If he beat, her. What are hU faults? Well, he hasn't cleaned the basement in six months. She has asked him at least 10 times to pound out the crumpled lid on the garbage can—and i'ls still crumpled. And there are one oi' two more complaints, no more serious. Another is disgusted with her husband dally because he tosses his clothes about the bedroom »nd throws his used towel on the bathroom floor. And so the letters go. Tor every wife who complains about some serious fault m her husband's character there are dozens who complain atxmi minor Irritations. The trouble is, such wives don't sec that they are minor. They take a small fault and "harp" on it until they law all sight of Its actuiv seriousness. They become so determined to nag until the negligent husband gives in, they don't even look to any other solution.

Or she could probably hire someone to do it for the iirlce of an evening at the movies. The wife who geta disgusted every time she has to pick up after her husband in the morning might try liming herself at the Job. If it took less than five minutes » day of her which It probably does — she'd feel a liUle silly letting It get her down, wouldn't she? No woman who hsus a reasonably good husband ought to let herself become a nagger or faultfinder. simply because he slips up In a fe* T waya. As soon as a woman starts making mountains out of molehills she starts to make both herself and her husband unhappy. The thing to do Isn't to wish a man were different or try to talk him into being so, but to look for a simple, easy solution to ihe irritations his minor faults provoke. It's haroVto change a man's habits—but it's usually pretty simple to keep from letting them become irritating. Binford Rides Again: Bans Another Movie MEMPHIS, Mny 13.
