Marion Monroe has advice for otherwives married to traveling husbands: "Don't become bored or sorry for yourself. Develop a hobby or some sort of interest. If you are busy in the daytime you will be willing to come home in the evening to your knitting or record collection."

Iff) Thieves stole all of the chickens of 75-year-old Ballard Harris, a Sunday school teacher. After publication of the story, Managing Editor Seymour Rosenberg of the Martinsville Bulletin received from subscribers more than enough funds to replace them. Harris says he also found a lot of new friends. director—she was a woman and the owner's wife. But now, she says: "I think I've proven I know a little about the business. It took until last month, but now I have the confidence of the organization." Since she tackled The Meadows, Mrs. Monroe has changed both the content and format of the menus to please the women diners, and trotted out ponies, pony carts and lollypops for the junior patrons. She feels strongly that children in a show business family should not suffer from their parent's activities and insists that Candace, 12 and Christina, 9, get proper schooling and affection.

When away, he calls every night. Neither of the girls play a musical instrument. '•We don't want them to follow a musical career. If you're one of the few that succeed it's wonderful. If you're not it's a hard life. We've sacrificed a lot of normal living and don't want the children to do the same."
