It turned out exactly as I knew it would. But even though 1 told him ahead of time what a mistake he was making he went right ahead witli It. 'How can a wife be a partner to a man \vho Is too stubborn to ever listen, to her?" Could be you Rulh Milieu havc more b , 15l : ness judgment than tnct. No matter how smart a woman is she still has to use tact In selling her Ideas to a rnati. Particularly if the man happens to be her husband. It sounds as though you may have ripped his scheme to shreds, point- Ing out everything wrong with It in a way that made your husband feel that you (houglit you knew more than he did. - ;. If you did, no wonder he went right ahead with his plans. That would just be a typical masculine reaction. ' , No man wants to admit that a woman might have bettor business sense than he has. You didn't really expect him to say: "You're probr > • Jli ie . A«d^(«id. Blylhevllle Hospital Dismissed: James Ray Graves, City B. A. BUgg, City J. P. Edwards, Cooler Vernon Tillman.

City Mrs. ItoJp'n Keeneii and baby, City ably right, my dear. Your Judgment is usually more sound than mine." If you did, you know far more about business than about men. But It's too late to do anything about the situation now except this: Forget III ,'••••.• Don't remind him of the wa. the deal turned out, And above all don't say those provoking words, "I told you so."' And next time you want to sel your husband an idea use all the tact you can muster. In /act, be so tactful that by Ihe time you've finished your selling job lie thinks your idea was his idea. A wife doesn't have to be a silent partner. But she has to be a taetfu partner If she wants to put her own ideas across.
