Realtors' Commission Licenses 3 Missco Men Any husband who wants lo effect . change in the way his home Is un should avoid the following mls- akcs. If he doesn't he'll probably inly start an argument. Don't give your wife any of that alk about "If I ran my office the vay you run Uils house." That von't get you anything but a. long and Indignant recital of all your wife does in the course of a day. And perhaps an invitation to stay home and try handling her Job yourself. Don't kick up a scene during the early morning rush hour because your socks haven't been darned when you're disgruntled and she is rushing around trying to cook breakfast and get everybody off lor the day. Lay the socks on the dresser for a gentle reminder that won'' lilt her until after you have lefi for work. In making a suggestion never le' It be known that you think she'd be smart to follow some other woman's example. There's nothing that innkcs n woman wore rebellion than to be told some other womai has solved a housekeeping prob lem In a way she might do wel to copy. Women are Belter at "Timing" Tf you're bent on tackling a touchy wobiem, pick your lime, That's a Irick at which women are much more skillful than men. A womai will wait a week, if necessary, untl her husband is in an expanslv ranie of mind before approach .„ him on a matter on whic he has to bring him around t er way of thinking. Men will ofte 3 the snnie thing in business .it few of them bother to be tho ubtle at home. Mrs. Stickmon Hostess To Rook Club, Guests Mrs. W. A.
