Now try to hold Mrs.Thurman'E.Rowlet, Sr., and! me -" Judging from the mail that comes to me from women readers, that must be the attitude of an increasing number of married men.

The baby has been named Wanday Darryl. Mr. and Mrs. Whittle.are former Blytheville residents. surprised. And once they get to .thinking of themselves as prizes their wives have fought for and are wholly responsible for holding onto against any and all competition, they become mighty poor risks as husbands. For they quit thinking of marriage as a partnership supposed to endure for a. lifetime. They start thinking of themselves as having been "caught" by a lucky girl, whose job it is to' hold them—or else. That relieves them of the responsibility of 'trying to please their wives as they expect to be pleased. And it also gives them the sneaking notion that if their marriages should fail only the wife will be the loser. For prize packages that they are, they can always let themselves be "caught" by - another lucky girl, who will devote her life to holding them, Of course, no man who is mentally mature believes such rubbish. But a lot of spoiled, selfish, immature ircen do find it easy to take all this "hold your husband" advice to heart. Such men are anything but a prize to any woman.

Wear "Glitterbugs" now with your sheers and later with dressy Fall fashions. Talk, He Can If He Tries A man writes: "My wife is alway complaining that I never, talk t her. Being a woman, maybe yo could tell me what I'm supposed to • talk about when I get home from another day on the job." Do you really want to know what your wife— or any other wife —wants her husband to talk to _ ,, „_..,,. her about? Ruth Millett She wants you to cell ner some o: the highlights of your day, whether they were good or bad. She wants you to ask a few questions and show a little conver sational interest in what she ha; been doing all day. She hates having to try and guess what's eating you when you come home in a silent or grouchy mood If you would just tell her the problem you are trying to work out she would feel close to you instead of feeling shut out. There Are Family Problems There are times when she would like to be able to discuss some problem she is having with one of the children. I mean really discuss it calmly and sensibly instead of feeling that if she confides in you, you will jump to a hasty conclusion and one of the kids will come out the loser. She would like now and then to plan with you for the future, rather than to drift along from day to day and not even knowing what you want out of life. And when she says you never 'talk" to her, she.probably also means that you never listen to her. At least not with your whole mind and with a show of honest-to-goodness interest in what she is saying. So don't dismiss her complaint ;hat you never talk to her. too "lightly. How in the world can a man expect his wife to understand him if he never, gives 'her a chance? tuhately a lot ot women today are finding themselves stuck with men who think any woman is lucky to have them. Being a husband is still pretty new to him. So perhaps he has never realized that you might not like his hanging onto a collection of pictures of someone else. Give him a "chance to understand your feelings.. You can't expect him to know how you feel unless you tell him.. And if'he doesn't get rid of them himself—and they really'bother you —they, can always get thrown out during spring housecleaning!
