But I can't iguie out why not. Every day for a chance at a vashing machine or a set of mat- •licd luggage or whatever prize an .nsutthigly glib master of ceremon- ,es (tangles , before them, housewives on such programs "tell all" about their husbands. Between giggles they'll gladly answer such questions as '"What's your huband's worst fault"—even If the answer is "snovlng." Or they'll tell how he proposed —and the more ridiculous they make the once-ardent husband look Hie more approving giggles the story gets from the studio audience. Some wives will even go into : sob story about how, It they gel the prize money, they'll keep Pappc out of jail, or get him back on his feet by paying the bills he can" meet. Nationwide Audience Listens They'll lattle things about thei lubands the men probably wouldn't ell to their best friends. And they tattling such tidbits to what adlo announcers like to refer to as ,he "vast 'inscen audience." They tell all with a nervous gig!CJ apparently pleased as punch a get a verbal pat on the head Irom the man who Is making his iving by getting tliem to talk. H seems to me that is the iaiike.it kind o( disloyalty to n Imstaiui— making him look Idiotic to thousands of people all over the coimtry. 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 the air Is mental cruelly. Hut maybe by the time a wife broadcasts her husband's foibles and shortcomings to the world she lias already made private conversation of them so often the husband takes It as matter of course.
