My wife Invited him to dinner, and I had to spend the evening watching her be ever so 'charming to nUn. I felt exactly like a third wheel, What Is a husband supposed to do in a case like that?" So writes one fo my readers. My answer is; Grin and bear It. Of course your wife had to be her most charming self. . If there's one thing a woman, any woman, confronted by the sudden appearance of an old beau wants to do, it is to make the old beau see how much he missed in not getting her. Likewise, and this Is only human, she wants to let him see that she did pretty well for herself. Your wife was probably hoping against hope that you'd be witty and gay and make It quite obvious that you were very much in love with her. Makes Wise Choice Apparent That would serve two purposes. It would let the old beau know hat sh e ha rf chosen wisely. And .t would also make her doubly .ure, herself, that she had made the right choice. So I hope you covered up your "third-wheel" feeling well enough to appear to the best advantage as a successful man, a devoted husband, and a good host. After all, old beaus don't come around very often. When they do they are rather important In a woman's life. It gives her a perfect opportunitj for reminding her husband thai she did have other chances, anc that some other men stUl remembers that she exists. And it gives her a fine chance to think with statisfaction: "I might have, married him. Thank goodness Georgi saved me from that." But that is the part ever admits to George. k wife won by Mrs. Neville .Blakemore, second high by Mrs. BlrmkensWp and rcoko, Mrs. George Saliba, Jr. At the conclusion of (.he gnme, the hostess served strawberry ioc cream pic. ;. : , . - Easfer Sunday and Monday Mrs. Otis Branch and baby, city.
