' This column is for a particular group of husbands—those who expect their homes to be neat and well run but make the job difficult or almost impossible for their wives by being sloppy around the house. A wife writes: "My husband and I read your column six nights a week with a great deal of interest. Whenever you criticize us women for our faults my husband has a good laugh at my expense and so I would like to voice my opinion on a major fault of most husbands and sons. "I would say that at least 90 per cent of the male sex in general are slovenly in their homes. It makes no difference to them how much they clutter up the house with clothing, newspapers, books, or anything at all that they have no immediate use for. j '•If you remonstrate with them about putting things in their proper place they listen patiently and then go merrily on their way, disregarding your complaint and leaving .the mess for you to clean. Most or inese men and boys have been taught by their mothers from the time they are toddlers to put toys, clothing, etc., away after use. But it is one lesson that doesn't seem to stick. Why? Why? Why? "I for one have enough work to do with cooking, cleaning, washing, ironing, etc., without playing valet to a husband and two sons. I have tried everything from cajolery to nagging, but to no avail. What can we women do?" Any woman with a pat and foolproof solution to that problem would deserve to be named Woman of the Year. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be any. Most women just throw in the sponge. They finally admit that it is easier and more pleasant to pick up after their husbands and sons than to wage an undying and hopeless battle against their slovenly ways. If any reader of this column has won the battle, a letter telling just what strategy she used would be appreciated—and printed. And who knows? The women of America may decide she should be Woman of the Year. Others on the honor roll were Wesley Davis, Ann Walker, Caro 1 lyn Potter, Phylis Pearson, Christine Stark, Faye Caldwell, Linda Cotton, Jerry Watkins, Juanita Welch, Shara Via, Wanda Bevill, Brenda Bates, Joyce Brown. Iva Nell Gordon, Annie Maude Gordon, Lena Middleton, Sue Sparks and Linda Hallmark. Kay Smith, Buford Brackin, Julia Webster, Dickie Reams, Gerald Rhodes, Marion Drane, Sue Lollar.
