"Do You Know the Tricks of Your Trade?" the Woman's Home Companion for November asks housewives, and then comes through with some bright ideas. In answer to the 'question: "Should you forewarn your husband of household chores?" the Companion answers: "No. Spring them on him, but only when he has the lime. With advance notice, he'll get tired just thinking about them. Psychologists say such male mental fatigue is just as real as if it were physical." So far, so good. But once you've sprung the job on him, then what? Dollars to doughnuts he'ss not be taken too much by surprise to have a typically masculine answer ready. "Does it have to bo clone this minute?"

Excuses Galore "It seems as though every time I sit down and get comfortable you think up something for me to do?"
