TUNE IN! rPHERE must be peace in family -Lltfe if nothing else. It takes character to , remember this, and to act accordingly, Nothing IK so contagious as a bad temper, nothing so depressing as complaint. Mow useless both are, and how childish! It would bo a grand thing if every mother and father' could change places once a week. But even this would hardly help to a better understanding of each other's difficulties, because it is Impossible to hop into another's shoes and feel like him. AH of us develop obsessions about our work that even our partners could not understand in a thousand years. Mary Feels Neglected Mary has been up half tho night with tho baby. She gets up to another hot, hard day. John, sho thinks bitterly, has had a full night's Bleep and off In that office thinks he's working when he adds up a few figures, lie comes homo at six, expects his dinner and then doesn't help with tho dishes. Ho won't even take her to a movie. "When John goo« to work, ho has a feeling, how-over, that ho has left Mary secure In a house fairly comfortable. Sho will have food and at least Homo conveniences. She will be busy, you, and tired, too, poor girl, but if she's desperately tired, tho way he feels so much of tho time, sho can get her head on a pillow for a few minutes once In a while. Maybe tho work will have to wait, but onco In a corner Mary can let it go at that and get Home rest. Moreover, she's her own boss. Nobody to crack a whip over her head or blame her for not getting an Invoice out or to hint every other hour that bettor men than he is aro out of jobs. Working Under Strain Hours in tho office facing a drab wall, tho clack of typewriters and adding machines driving rivets Into his brain. Sometimes he thinks he'll have to rush out, knock down a few pedestrians and then dive off the bridge. Ho needs to cxorclso and stretch his muscles. But by 6 he is so mentally and spiritually fogged a carpet beater, or even a dish cloth, Irritates him further. Mary says tho installment man was there, the wheel on the buggy is off, she's had a headache and for all he cares she could die and good riddance. John, seething Inside all day over the pettiness and nagging of, the office manager, holding in because if he didn't both Mary and the baby would sarve, now turna on her and lets go tho blast. An explosion is necessary to relieve his tortured feelings, so Mary being near and rubbing salt In the wound, although she doesn't guess, gets tho broadside. Maybe It has to lx> this way, Character is one thing and limit of endurance another. Both aro tired, each thinks the other does not glvo them credit; life Is no bed of roses and looks as black as the bottom of a dry river bed. Must Malio Allowances But Mary should try to remember I that John Is pegging away at a distasteful Job day after day to glvo her a certin security and Independence. John, that Mary Is fighting her way every hour under tho pressure of a dozen annoyances and discouragements, roaring his child an well as hem and being as bravo about it as a woman of Mary's undeveloped type can be. He must gfvo Mar}' time to cultivate emotional' strength and bo aa patient an he can. Not until husband and wife learn to respect each other's troubles and and allow for them, forgive special fallings and understand the battles each in fighting alone, can, there be, peace. And 'there should bo peace. " . TO PRESENT FLAG Hurlbut Woman'* neHef Corps, No. l\6, Auxiliary to the Q. A. H. will present a flag to Union Avenuo Rchool Wednesday September 18 at 3:1$ o'clock.
