Severe/ Grove/ Roads Scheduled to Be Paved LITTLE ROCK, June 14— tit*)— There'll be fewer stretches of gravel In Arkansas' main highways four years from now. says Highway Director J. C. Baker. Baker said the McMath highwaj |- program proposed to complete paving on Highway 24/29. 79 and 82 and possibly Highway 70. The director wouldn't estimate what number 01 the state's sonv 2,:iOO miles of gravel roads will be blacktop ped. Because of uncertainities of th federal matching formula and allo (cations and because of other factor, "it would be impossible to maki even a wild guess at this time," hi declared.

THE WOMEN » ^ HHH ^^ MMM ^^ M a,^^^ Bn ^^_^BBi^^^^BB^M^^^__^^^^^H B) Ruth Mil lull NtA SUtt Writer Husband Becomes Victim When Wife Faces 'Mike' So far as 1 konw no husband ias yet sued his wife for divorce Hi grounds that she made a fool out of him on a radio audlence- >artlclpation show. But I can't 'igure out why not. Every day for a chance at a washing machine or a set of matched luggage or whatever prize an nsultingly glib master of ceremonies dangles before them, housewives on such programs "tell all" about their husbands. Between giggles they'll gladly answer such questions as '"What's your liuband's worst fault"—even II the answer Is "snoring." Or they'll tell how he proposed —and the more ridiculous they make the once-ardent husband look, the more approving giggles the story gets from the studio audience. Some wives will even go into sob story about how, If they get the prize money, they'll keep Pappa out of jail, or get him back on hib feet by paying the bills he can" meet. Nationwide Audience Listens They'll tattle things about the! iiibands the men probably wouldn't ell to their best friends. And they ire tattling such tidbits to what noio announcers like to refer to as .he "vast, unseen audience," They tell all with a nervous gig!le, apparently pleased as puncl :o get, a verbal pat on the head from the man who is making his living by getting them to talk. H seems to me that is the uuikest kind of disloyalty to a husband- making him look Idiotic to thousands of people all over the country. So, it's a wonder to me some of the husbands who have had their privacy so betrayed haven't rcl>elled to the point of asking for a divorce on the ground thut making a Tool of a man over the air Is mental cruelty. But maybe by the time a wife broadcasts her husband's foibles and shortcomings to the world she has already made private conversation of them so often the hiisbund takes It as matter of course.
