Pick up your knitting needles!" This advice comes from Doctor Rebecca Liswood, physician and marriage counselor, and Executive Director of the Marriage Counseling Service of Greater New York. Doctor Liswood . attributes the rising divorce rate, in part at least, to tension and high-powered daily living. She calls knitting handcraft tranquilizer." in an entirely different way to any situation or spoken word when we are feeling jumpy than we do when we are feeling wonderful. We say things which we later regret but the damage may remain.

The couple ivas married November 8 at the home of the officiating minister, Rev. Frank Rodkey, Delphi. The bride is the former Elizabeth Berkshire, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Byron. C.

It provides a hobby which is relaxing because it does not require too much concentration. It also gives a woman a feeling of accomplishment by providing a concrete example of something she has done herself." In mental and physical therapy it long has been .reoognized that the use of the hands in creating something lovely has a magically soothing • effect on the emotions and on body tensions. Doctor Liswood further pointed out that marriages too often flounder on the rocks of disagreements which are caused by tension, and that the relaxation of mental strain permits couples to settle their differences amicably and intelligently. We all know from experience that we cannot make Correct decisions when we are in the midst of an emotional upheaval or when we are fraught with tensions. This sort of thing snowballs.

She emphasized that few'young women enter into marriage with proper preparation. She continued, "This leads to a fajry tale concept of married life which often result in husband-wife clashes." Probably most marriages break up because of the small irritations, .frustrations and disappointments of daily life rather than the big crisis. Perhaps, too, these are potent aging factors.
