A Wife Can Be an Asset By Following a Few Rules It must be highly satisfying to Nancy Kefauver when one political reporter after another comes"forth with the opinion she is one of her husband's most important assets. That's what any wife would like to have said about her. There is no pattern for the wife who wants to be a iva! asset to her husband. It depends in each case on what kind of wife the fius- band needs, and what particular assets'his wife has to meet those needs. But in general these are all qualities and abilities that will make a wife a real asset to her husband. Being a good and subtle press- agent. More than any other person, a wife has the opportunity to help a man put his best foot forward. Being a friendly human being. A wife who gets the reputation for being high-hat or gives others the impression she is a cold fish, interested only in herself, can't possibly help a man along in the world. A Wife Should -Retain Her Independence Maintaining her own individuality. The wife who is a mere shadow of her husband may not hurt him but she can't help him either. Having a good disposition. A bad-tempered woman can, and usually does, make enemie? where she could find friends. Being able to give the impression she is vitally interested in her husband's career without giving the idea she influences his decisions. Being a capable home-maker. The woman who fails to run a home properly gives the world an unfavorable impression of her husband. After all. a man's home is his background.
