MD., TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1955 • ELEVEN- -.35' IIa worth's Counsel By Mail Editor's Note: Bridegroom tensely disapproves his bride's campus chore of performing with college band DEAR'MARY HA WORTH: My daughter was married last June, soon after being graduated from high school. Her husband is a junior in college, where she'is a freshman this fall—on a scholarship given her for outstanding grades and extra-curricular ac- j-^vity.- ' ) 'Since entering" college, Ann was chosen one of the top performers with- the university band—hence the problem. She is carrying a light schedule of studies, but does all her housework and laundry, in addition to some wage earning. Her favorite chore, the one she most enjoys, is marching with the: band at school games. ; However, her husband wants her; to give up the band chore and, because she refuses, he says she loves it more than she loves him. ^That's all she told me). When we were- there recently he wouldn't go to the game because she was performing; and the tension between them was noticeable. It seemed juvenile to me, but I kept my thoughts to myself. Mother Seems To Favor Girl I would like to help them both, as neither can do good, work if there is a mental block, so to speak. I gave up all my clubs years ago, because my husband griped at my activities. .Now I feel dull and uninteresting, and although I could rejoin them, I have lost incentive. To me, outside interest are a must! I am wondering if there is a course on family life at'their university, that might give-them a better slant- on things? My daughter doesn't mind her husband's going to poker parties or fraternity meetings. She is happy for him to have some outside activity; he works too. : • The band -takes her away, from home only for Saturday afternoon Lions Club Planning Christinas Tree Sale The Cumberland Lions Club will sponsor a Christmas tree sale on December 16, 17 and 18,and have a party for children on December 19. The dates were selected at a meeting of the board of directors. A report listed 18 eye cxamiria tions and 14 pairs of glasses for needy school children during October. The directors re-elected William R. Carscaden chairman of the sports car races. Getting ready for Christmas? Court Upholds Assault Conviction HAGERSTOWN WV-The Circuit Court has backed up a magistrate's conviction of 28-year-old William Jacobs of Williamsport, given 90 days in jail for assaulting 3 30-year-old Negro man. The victim of the assault. Jack; Price of \Villiamsport, said he was attacked by Jacobs, Wallace Byers and Claude Turner on Oct. 1 at his place of employment the day after a fight with one of them; in a tavern. Magistrate Jesse Shank said in, sentencing all three to 90-day! terms that the incident "couldj easily have caused a race riot."! _ l Colchester, in Essex.

The'band will be making two trips out of town, and Ed can always go too—either with hisj boss, or in his own car. f hate to see their marriage get off to a bad start, and would appreciate your advice. ... . G. Y. Bride Lacks * Social Sense DEAR G. Y.: It is difficult to in-j ject saving doses of good taste and | good sense into the thinking of a person who hasn't an innate grasp of such things. And, as I see this hassle, Ann is offending against good sense and good taste, in cavorting with the band—on parade and game days—when her iridegroom husband deplores the pectacle. I grant you there may be no isrrn, per se, in that kind of.fro- icking. If Ann were a single girl, she might perform with the band as a lark, loving the chore, and still remain above criticism. But as a wife, and particularly as a mde, she certainly" should have her husband's full consent, before making a public show of herself, n circus-type garb, as it were. To be frank—and let's face it- Ann's chore with the band (blue- pencilled, at your request) really consists. in flaunting herself to loliday crowds in a show-off routine, scantily clad. 'Therefore t seems" to me quite understandable that a' husband who really cares about her, in a protective cherishing way, mindful of the cynicism of'the unconcerned, would be profoundly chagrined by, and immovably opposed 'to, such a display. Marriage Is In Jeopardy It is easy to argue that Ed is just being jealous or narrow. And that narrow persons are never happy and others can't please them. And that outside interests are "musts" in keeping a marriage healthy, etc. All of which could be true. But even so, anybody with adult understanding of the psychology of marriage, and anybody with a smidgen of moral awareness,' will sympathize with Ed's shamed indignation in this particular matter. . . The oneness of marriage has to do with the privacy and exclusive ness of interpersonal relatedness And the individual person is an indivisible blend, of body and spirit. As with the body, so -with the spirit, one might say. Thus when Ed sees his bride doing acrobatics in the spotlight, in de fiance of his wishes, he is justi :ied in wondering just how much (or what kind) of a marriage he las. * Ed las a problem in Ann's im maturity and childish greed fot collegiate fun. And his hostile baf- lement increases their difficulty They are" married greenhorns .argely unprepared to make es sential adjustments; consequently they are pulling apart, before :hey've had time to grow together To find help for them, inquire of. the Family and Children's Service in the town through which you write.
