TUESDAY, OCTOBER 19,1954 BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.V COUIKffR WHJV3 PAGE SEVEN Many Men Enjoy Help Of Wife in Their Shopping By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (AP) — About this time of year a man begins thinking about a new fall suit. As often as not he ends up,by buying what his wife picks out. . Why do men take their wives along? Merchants will tell you that a large numbei of them do. And many of those who made a show of choosing for themselves take wearing apparel home on approval — and you know whose approval. Most women love to shop. They There are men, of course, who won't let their women within shooting range of a clothing store. A man. say, who in his young manhood was badly bitten by a bunch of Christmas ties from female kin. Or, one who, way back before the honeymoon was entirely over, let his wife pick out a suit for him, and when he came .out of the daze discovered he was walking around In something that once must have blanketed Man 'O War. Such men go alone to the clothing stove. But most men, whether they know it or not, don't really choose their clothes themslves. There are several types. Some discover by the trial and error method that it's the better part of valor to let the wife's taste win right from the start rather than to listen to comments on the clothing after the husband brings it home. These criticisms range from open laughter (rare, let's hope) to a polite murmur that it's an awfully cute suit but are you sure you're quite the type to wear it. Other males are convinced their wives really do have better notions about what men should wear and rely gratefully on their womenfolk's taste. Actually, many a man hates to shop. He knows his tendency to buy whatever the clerk hands him —even when aware that the salesman may be palming off something he hasn't been able to unload before. The customer knows his wife won't let him go for that. are willing, even eager to go from store to store, to nave their IHLS- ba..ds try on garment after garment, to parry words with salesmen when they're suspicious, and to insist on extra cure in the alterations. Many husbands value this aid. Women nourish — and without doubt deserve—their reputation as the better shopper, the one with the real nose for bargains, and the unerring eye for value. They don't let their men forget it. B-47 Crashes, Two Injured TUCSON, Ariz.
