Bible Class Convenes The Adult Bible Class of the By RUTH MILLETT NBA-Staff WrIUr "Can't you write a column on young women breaking up older women's homes, as there is one who Is doing Just that to mine?" a housewife writes me. And she adds"I have a wonderful husband—If ihc would Just fade out of the nlc- turo." I'm afraid I can't write the kind of column this reader expects For I don't hold with the iden ' that the "other woman" and her wiles breaks up a home. And I don't mean that I think tic wife Is always to blame when nother woman steps into the pic- lure, cither. In every such case, It seems to me, it's a question of the wile being to blame, or the' husband's belli" to blame—or of both of them being "t fault. 'The other woman just happens ilong at the right time. And if It weren't one woman it would nrob- bly be another. Wives go through a lot of agony blaming their troubles on the other woman and telling themselves that everything would be all right If the other woman; would just fade it of the picture. But the typo of woman who is willing to be the "other woman" m "im" 5 ?. exlstw| -»n<i she always will. Whether or not she enters a marriage depends on what shape the marriage Is In. ' It It's an unhappy marriage or a bonng one or If the husband Just happens to be a man who hasn't enough character to be able to stick to one woman for llfe-lhc other woman tan cause trouble. If ire's a "Family M; ln " But if it's a happy marriage and Ihe husband is what Grandma referred fo as a "family mart," the other woman would Just be wasting her time if she tried to get him away from his wife. So it's no use living in constant fear of the other woman, or hatlne and blaming her if she comes alon» All a wife—any wife—can do is try to choose a man of good character and strong principles and try to make their marriage a happy one. If another woman succeeds In breaking up the home, then it means there was something wrong either with the marriage or with the husband. There is no such thing, in my opinion, as a man who would be a wonderful husband if only the other woman would fade out of the picture. Either he's a good husband —or he isn't,. The sentence ends right there. Nurses to Ask Basic Pay of $200 a Month TEXARKANA, Ark., Nov. 5. (O>1— Registered nurses of Arkansas will ask their employers lor a minimum salary of S2CO a month.
