But I can't figure out, why not. fcvery day for a chance at a cashing machine or a set of matched luggage or whatever prize an insultingly gill) master of ceremon- dangles before them, housewives on such programs "tell all" about their husbands. Between giggles they'll gladly answer such questions as "'What's your hubiuid's worst fault"—even if 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 gels from the studio audience. Some wives will even go itito sob story about how. If they get the pri/.e money, they'll keep pappa out of Jail, or get him back on his feet by paying the bills he can't meet. Nationwide Audience Listens They'll tattle things about their lubands the men probably wouldn't tell to their best (rlends. And they are tattling such tidbits to what radio announcers like to refer to as the "vast unseen audience," They tell all with a nervous giggle, apparently pleased us punch to get a verbal pat on the head from the mnii who Is making his living by getting them to talk. It seems to me that Is the rankest 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 rebelled to the point of asking for a divorce on the ground that making a fool of a man over Ihe air is mental cruelty. But maybe by Ihe time a wife broadcasts her husband's foibles and shortcomings to the world she has already made private conver- sution o/ them so often the husband takes it as matter of course.
