Vhile Kid also •Vhile Mesh & Kl Combination 8 Good Shoes & Hosiery Blaming Troubles On Others Means You're To Blame "Solf-pity 'Is perhaps the most destructive of all human disorders," says a prominent physician in a cur- vent magazine article. That is certainly borne out by many of the letters that come to this column. Especially those from housewives. As SL group, housewives must be especially susceptible to self- pity. They have such a variety ot reasons for feeling sorry for themselves. Ruth MHlett Mrs. A feels sorry for herself because she has put up with "impossible" in-laws. Mrs. B is wallowing in self-pity because her husband doesn't show any appreciation for all that she has done to help him. Mrs. C feels sorry for herself because Rhe is so bogged down by housework and tied down by family responsibilities that she feels dull and uninteresting. Mrs. D. feels like a failure and blames It on her husband's taking no interest in his home and chil- The list could gq, on and on tor there are dozens of complaints that crop up In letter after letter from housewives who are weighted down with self-pity. Though the complaints vary, the letter usuually have two things in common. The writer blames her unhappiness on another person or on an intolerable situation. And she always wants to know what she can do to change the person or th« rit- uitlon, never what ih* MB do M change herself. So If you think tomeont, or •om« situation, Is making you-mlMtablt, the thing that IB actually licking you Is Just plain self-pity. If you'll stop feeling sorry for yourself long enough to get a good, clear look at your problem, you can probably work out a solution yourself. But you'll never work one out If you would rather feel sorry for yourself than be happy. Marriage Licenses The following couples have obtained marriage licenses from the office of the county clerk.
