"American Girls Make the Best I Wives." That was such a welcome change from the usual articles about women that have flooded the magazine world I couldn't resist buying the magazine to read the article. And sure enough it made far better sense than most of the articles with such defeatist titles as "What's Wrong with American Women?" "Are Kuth Milieu American Women Neurotic?" "Why European Girls Make Better Wives," and so on and so on, week after week, month after month, and year after year. It ocrurreci to me some time ago that \vhaI. the American woman needs most is not a psychiatrist, or lefsons on how to hold her man from European women, or mor lectures on her faults and shor comings. She needs a better press All we have been hearing abou American women for at least 1 years is wh;i' is wrong with them The men have heard what' wrong with us so much they'v come to believe it. And the womei PlansCompleted Party Given -„ -r-.. , For Rob Porter For Dinner by O n Birthday Burdette PTA Plans were completed for a chicken supper, on Dec. 8, at the Burdette School cafeteria, yesterday when Burdette Parent-Teachers Association met. Plans also were made for a study course for Dec. 1. Parents are urged to attend with the subject of the study course to be "The Governor's Conference on Educa> tion." In other business, the group voted to buy a duplicator machine for the school. Mrs, Tom Callis was program chairman nnd introduced Mrs. Carroll Watson of Osceola, state PTA president, who spoke on "Is It Well With the Child in School?" "Meaning of Thanksgiving" Was the devotional given by Mrs. Conway Duncan. Room count winners in the lower grades were Miss Fields, first grade, Mrs. Weathers, third grade, and Mrs. Bevills, fourth grade. These grades all tied for first place. The senior class was winner for the high school grades. At the conclusion of the meeting, Mrs. Jim Henry Burks presented Mrs. Watson with a gilt from the roup. Hostesses in the social hour were Mrs. Preston Ramey. Mrs. O. D. Bevills, Mrs. Roy Neat and Mrs Charlie Hicks. have grown so accustomed to hav- ng their faults or imagined faults recorded and so used to being whol ly blamed for everything from juvenile delinquency to the high divorce rate they rarely even get indignant any more at the latest attack. A little good publicity would be a welcome change and might not only affect the way the American man thinks about American women but the way American women think about themselves. So any magazine that gives the American woman a break is going to get my two bits or four bits. And if you join me maybe the editors will take notice that women are fed up with bad publicity and nre hankering for a better break. Rob Porter, son of Mr. asd Mrs. R. A.
