Mrs. Ludwig Erhard Is Described as Motherly STARS ABOVE US 6y CARROLL RIOHTER By CARI>, HARTMAN BONN, Germany (AP)—Luise Erhard, wife of West Germany's chancellor, is a motherly lady in her mid 60's with a solid university degree in business administration to her credit. Consequently, she is quite up to discussion nn economics with her husband. Ludwig Erhard, (he man considered lo he the architect of (lie country's postwar prosperity. His predeces s o r Chancellor Knnrad Adenauer gave him the post of economic minister when I he Bonn G o v e r n m e n t was formed in September. 1949. Then Adenauer's retirement brought, the number two man into the number one position. V But like most wives of the. German politicians buise Erhard stays in the. background. Ludwig '"Lulu" Erhard and Luise "I.,u" Loffer were childhood friends in the Little Bavarian town of Fuerth. They met again at the Nuernberg Trade Intitule after World War I. By then she was a wr>r widow with a little daughter, ht a badly wounded veteran. They were graduated in the same class and married that year—Ifl23. The six-rnnm house they rent now. on a lull overlooking Bonn, 'Poppy Day' Is Saturday In Sulphur SULPHl R (.spi.i - Poppy Day will be observed in Sulphur Saturday and members of An- drus-0'Quam American Legion Auxiliary Unit 179 will be selling poppies in downtown Sulphur and area shopping centers.! Plans for the sale were made at a recent meeting of the Auxiliary held in the home of Mrs. \ Carl Walters, chairman of Poppy Day. Working with Mrs. Walters will be Mrs. B. B. Rice, Mrs. Cleve O'Quam, Mrs. C. A.; Vincent Sr., Mrs. Harry Hop-1 kins and Mrs. Bermce Mullins. The meeting was opened with the preamble to the constitu- i tion of the American Legioni Auxiliary and a Memorial Day prayer by the chaplain, Mrs. Paula Gibson. Airs. B. B RICP reported on the reports she had sent to the district meeting held recently in i Eunice. Mrs. Hopkins gave a report on the Community Pride Council meeting. Mrs. Vincent announced that the delegates to Pelican Girls State have been chosen. They are Pam Lyons who will be i sponsored by the Sulphur Botary Club; Linda Davis of Sulphur, West Calcasieu Association of Commerce; Carolyn Roberts, Maplewood-Hollywood ( Lions Club; Linda Havens, West Lake High School PTA. The meeting was closed with a poem from the Memorial Service and the chaplain's prayer. MRS. LUDWIG ERHARD ; still has much of the furniture : with which they began their I married life in a little apart; ment near Fuerth. • An official residence for the chancellor is being built but. will not be ready for some months. At 2 p.m. Erhard usually goes home for lunch with her, only about a 10-minute. drive in his official black Mercedes with a one-car police escort. But breakfast together 0 Never. Like Clementine Churchill, who often remarked that if Winston and she had breakfast together they would not have re' mained married, Luise Erhard ; never breakfasts with Ludwig unless they are on vacations. 1 To keep from distracting her husband's concentration on the program for the day ahead of him. Mrs. Erhard takes her breakfast in bed, although she hates that. "But it's the only way to give Ludwig the time lie needs to be ; alone with his newspapers and thoughts." i They do not entertain much at home because the house is too small. Sometimes, when there is no official function they sit quietly at "officers' skat" a two-handed version of a popular German card game. Other evenings Erhard likes to work, read, listen to classical records or discuss economic problems. Always jn command of his masculine companionship. West. Germany's new chancellor is shy in the company of women. The couple has always preferred to spend their leisure together, although there has not been much leisure for either lately. Despite her broad economics education, Mrs. Erhard never offers her husband any advice. Her aim is to remain a good and sincere listener. "If there is something I don't understand," she says, "I ask for an explanation. But criticism? No—if there is anybody fit to criticize him, they must 1 be people whose job it is more i than mine." i She also can furnish him first ' hand data. She is to be seen regularly in Bonn's old market square, filling her shopping bag among hundreds of other housewives. Frau Erhard's two daughters —one by her first marriage, one by Erhard—are both married. A nephew of hers lives w i t h them, a student at Bonn University: specialty, economics. Her main interest is the care of children who come from broken families, who have been taken from their parents by court order. She keeps a .special eye, on "Children's villages," which resembles the "Boys' Towns" familiar in some other countries. "No government," she says, "can do anything about selfishness and personal inadequacy— not all unfortunate circumstances can be changed by action from above." for Saturday GENERAL TENDENCIES; Then; ore many IWnns you con do this Soturdoy mol will give you more charm as well Smart Summer faniom Summer's magic word Is "Ladylike" - the fashion term that best describes the softness of Printed Pattern M465 by Abe Schrader.
