Nt* SUM WrtUr \ Don't Try to Eliminate Your Husband's Outside Interests Sizes 4 to 10 For Sunday morning breakfast serve scrambled eggs on thin crisp slices of , toast with fried tomato slices. But be sure that the eggs arc creamy—don't cook too long! • ; Is a husband entitled. to spend more of his leisure time in the company of other men or should all his nonworklng time be spent with his wife and family? That question is raised by a wife who resents the fact'that her husband plays cards One night a week with a congenial group of men and leaves her alone another night or two a month to attend lodge meetings or other affairs. What's so bad about that? There's nothing in the marriage agreement that says that either a husband or wife has to spend every leisure hour In the other's company. If neither the husband nor wife ever feels the need for Individual friends or Interests, then they'll have one kind of marriage. But who Is to say that it is the best kind? The man who Is interested in other things besides the Job and home can'be just, as good a husband as the so-called "family- man" so many women think they want. And as he grows older hell probably he much easier to live with. Grandmother Offers Good Advice Not long ago I heard a grandmother say: "When I was young I used to get mad at my husband when he went anywhere without me.

So I tell my daughters; 'Let your husbands go out whcii they want to. It's not nearly as hard on a woman as having a man around the house .who doesn't know ; what to do with himself.'" i That's pretty good advice, I think to the young wives who never wan their husbands out of their sighl Force a man to give up all his our- ; side Interests and leave him nothing but job and home, and one day in Is likely to have become so depen- i dent on his easy chair hell Just be in the way.
