ALCOHOU08 ANONYMOUS Bn (71 Blythevllle Just because Mama's marriage pattern worked for her doesn't necessarily mean the same pattern will make her daughter happy. The following letter bears that out: ' 'I gresv up In a family where Papa was the most Important member of the family. My m o t h. e r catered to his every wish. She cooked what he liked to eat. "She never spent any money without consulting Dad Ruth Mlllctt about it first. She carried out all the rules he laid down for his children, even though I suspect she often thought he was too strict. "She entertained the friends he enjoyed, went where he wanted to go, walked easy when he was in a grouchy mood. In fact, all of us grew up with the Idea that Dad was the important member of the family. "I married at 18 and I suppose, without realizing it, I copied my mother's way of treating a husband. : guess I didn't know there was my other way. "Well, after 11 years of marriage ' have a thoroughly spoiled husband ind it doesn't help any to know hat I have only myself to blame.. "I see how much happier my rlcnds are who haven't spoiled their uisbands the way I've spoiled mine. Jut I don't suppose there Is any lope of changing a relationship at- Mrs. E. B.

Hi-N-Y Society 3as Picnic Supjper Members of the Hi-N-Y Society of the First Church of the Nazarene iet at the church last night for a ilcnlc and hnyrlde. Twenty-five nembers attended.

Group counselors are Mrs. Hazel McWIliams, and Mrs. Melvin Jarrett. Mary Ryan's Coming to Town! ter 11 years of marriage." Of course there Is. You can't change It overnight. But you can do It gradually. First of all you'll have to stop thinking of yourself as a wife cut from the name pattern as your mother and start being yourself. When you stop acting like you think a wife should act and start acting like yourself you'll be well on the way to changing things. Don't make the mistake of making rightabout-face on everything simply because you fee! you have been spoiling your husband in the past. That would certainly throw a monkey wrench into your marriage. Instead, examine your behavior as you go along, asking yourself: "Is this my own attitude or is it one I borrowed from my mother?" If it isn't yours, discard it. If it is yours then it's right for you. 14 Lange Pupils Win Certificates Fourteen pupils at Lange School were, given certificates this week for perfect attendance for the past year.
