Sixteen Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Josephine Lowman Question Husbands, Wives In Mrs. America Contest r Here's a group of Mrs. America candidates preparing for the contest. I think you will be interested In knowing what .questions were asked the contestants in the Mrs. America contest during their interviews. First they were asked how they happened to enter the contest or why they wanted to enter. Many women had been sponsored by a club group, some had been urged by their husbands and children to try for the title while yet more just thought it would be fun. All husbapds were questioned very carefully about how they felt about the project. A woman cannot do a good job of being Mrs. America unless her husband is cooperative. Mrs. America had to go to New York immediately and must be away from home about 23 weeks out of the coming year. Couples also were questioned earnestly about who was taking care of the children during their absence and what arrangements they would make in case the wife became Mrs. America.

Then as I have written before the contestants were questioned concerning their participation in community life. Many .amusing things happened during these interviews. One man was asked if his wife is a good cook. He was a tall, lean guy and he answered, "People call me Mr. No-Muscles and wonder low I can be so thin if my wife is a good cook. I don't know the answer to that because she is a wonderful cook," When queried about who would lake care of the children, one husband raised his hand: When a mortician was asked if ie approved of his wife's entrance into the contest, she spoke up and said, "He will be the LAST one to let you down." One woman who had wanted to enter for fun told us lhat she kept waiting to ask her husband, for his approval until she could catch him JUST right. She waited almost a week before the perfect moment arrived. When she asked him, he replied, "Sure! Go ahead! You couldn't win Mrs. Myrtle Avenue." Myrtle Avenue is the street they live on and is four blocks long. That husband must have gotten a jolt because his wife was one of the most attractive finalists. There was a wonderful spirit among these young couples. I am sure that there were some bitter disappointments but they did not show. I was so happy to learn, after the contest, that die women had taken a secret poll to decide who they would like to have win. Isn't it wonderful that they had chosen the same woman we did? It shows that Mrs. America'has a lot more than physical attractiveness.

Tomorrow: "Bicycling is Wonderful Exercise am] Enjoyable." (Released by The Register and Tribune Syndicate, 1957) Dear Ann: The other day the landlord came to colleet the rent. He offered to paint my apartment i£ I wanted it done. I tcld him to forget the paint-job, but please take a. look at the kitchen sink. When I run the water, the floor gets flooded and it leaks down into the basement. He said he didn't think this was possible. We went to look. Suddenly he put his arm around me and stole a kiss. I socked him one to let him know where I stood. He got mad 'and stomped upstairs. The next morning I received a notice in writing, slipped under the door. My rent is being raised $15 a month, starting the first. Is there a law that can protect me? What happened to rent control anyway? — MISTREATED TENANT Rent control went out in most areas after sugar stamps and gas rationing. In this case, however, even if you could control the rent, you probabiy couldn't control the landlord. The advice from here is to move. this social philosophy even though it may seem foreign to them. As an American girl, this is your heritage. Dear Ann: I've been engaged several months. Whenever I make an appointment with the minister to set the date, my fiance either falls asleep, forgets completely or finds some excuse to cancel it. He's stood me up three different times in furniture stores. Something always happens to him at the last minute. I've run into him several times Mrs. Jerry Phillips Honored At Shower A miscellaneous shower was given recently at 515 Helm street in honor of Mrs. Jerry Phillips, the former Miss Ann Humes, with Mrs. Arlene Vassey and Miss Audrus Schlosser as hostesses. The couple was married June G at the Grace Lutheran church in this city. Refreshments were served to thei following guests: Mrs. Wilma Humes, Mrs. Goldie Siddall, Mrs. Pat Bryan, Mrs. Jean Higgins, Mrs. Maryella- Godfrey, Mrs. Jayne Ann Godfrey, Mrs. Mary Siddall, Mrs. F. B. Pitman, Mrs. Trella Dague, Mrs. Ed Humes, Mrs. Norma Green, Mrs. Dan Smith, 'Mrs. Paul Elmore, Mrs. Louis Silberman, Mrs. Walter Hanse, Jr., Mrs. Richard Bridesmaids were Miss Pat Saine, Miss Pattie Nicodemus, Miss Judy Grogg and Miss Susie Grogg, Loren Shambarger served the bridegroom as best man, and Frank Clemans, Frank McNeil, Grunice Willis and Dick Smith acted as ushers. Miss Tresa Metzger was flower girl and the ring bearer was Andy Metzger. Dear Ann: My parents came to this country in 1942 but they are American citizens. I'm writing to you because in the country where my folks were raised, there was no such thing as parties for boys and girls together, and dating was unheard of. The parents fixed up a marriage and that was it. By now you've probably guessed I will not be privileged to date until I'm considered "marriageable". Then my parents will decide who my husband is to be. I've been allowed to attend a few parties, but never with a boy. My father takes me and comes for me before 11:00 P. M. All"my Trends are well brought up and are from lovely homes. I don't want to go in for necking but I'd like to enjoy the social privileges of other high school girls my age. My parents read your column daily and refer to it often. If you can get them to realize this is America, where things are different, I would bless you to my dying day.—DOWNHEARTED You need more help than I can give in a single letter. I recommend that your clergyman or a favorite teacher meet with your parents aivl discuss this problem. In the old country the arranged marriage worked out we!l in a good many instances. It was the custom and no one questioned it. In America, freedom of choice is part of the democratic way of life. To impose old country practices on a girl born in America is not only unwise but unnatural.

When he failed to meet me at the real estate agent's office I told him to leave me ' alone for good. Now he's camping on my doorstep, promising to change. This is the third time. He's been sending me expensive presents, the last one a beautiful miniature rock garden. Now I'm all mixed up. What shall I do?—W.W.W. Give him the garden back a rock at a time. His irresponsible behavior is a good clue to wha you could expect if you married him. Too many people walk blindly into marriage hoping a few magic words will bestow all sorts of desirable traits on Die partner. It just doesn't happen this way. Be grateful you got his number in time and start to date some men. (Ann Landers will be happy to help you with your problems.
