PAGE TEH (ARK.) COUNTER NEWS If Father Wore All Things He Gof on His Day—My But He'd Dress Strangely NEW YORK (£>)—A lot of )atc- »hopping ladies are feverishly Biking themselves: "What can I eel my husband for Father's Day?" And they tear through a department store like a two-legged tornado In quest of a suitable necktie, bathrobe, or a pair of slippers. If the average father wore only what his womenfolk gavne him, that's how he'd go to work—clad only a necktie, a bathrobe and new slipiiers. Naturally a fellow appreciates these things. Who ever had enough haberdashery? But. ladies, along with that necktie you present your husband this Sunday, why not hand him a real surprise? Why not give him back his bathroom? There is no gift a man would ralhei have on Father's Day n bathroom—his very own bathroom. "Ladies, you may object: "But Dad already has his own bathroom." noes He Object? Does he? He may in name—but never la fact. Whether you live in a log cabin or a marble palace of 100 chambers, the odds are he really doesn't have a bathroom he can enter and leave at hi.s leisure. I have never met a married man who felt he had a bathroom he could honestly call his own, except when the rest of the family was away on vacation. The chances are that If they designed a house that was all-lumb- Ing except, for the kitchen, Father etlll wouldn't have that bathroom. Here's what happens: A family In modest circumstances njnkes some money and builds a home that has a bathroom for every member •—and one left over for the guests. "This is your bathroom, dear," mama tells papa. He can't believe it. After all these years, his secret dream has come true. No more pco- ple pounding on the door and calling "hurry up" every time he starts to shave! How can life hold greater luxury? The Maid's Dre.w It may truly be'hLl bathroom for a week or a month. lint then he comes home one day and finds the mold's ilress hanging there. The next day it ratns and he returns to tlnd n drying umbrella in his bathtub. Soon he learns his son has turned the room into a public library his daughter wants to dry her hair there. And mother has hung up all her clothes in it while she cleans out a closet. Quests never seem able to find the guest bathroom, but they can always find his. Everybody leaves a he-longing or two in Dud's bathroom. "You pot your own bathroom he walls. "Why don't you clutter it up " This does no Rood at nil and only injures the feelings of his v.-!fc and children. Why Is he so cranky? He is cranky because his very own bathroom has b^cn lunjed into it cross between a warehouse and railroad station. "1 went into my wife's bathroom and counted 77 different articles in it," he .said. "Then I went into what Is supposed (o be my own bathroom and counted 35 articles, of which exactly six belonged to me. The rest were my wife's. "I can't go in my bathroom to wash after work without hearing her rap on the door and say, "There's something in there I have to get. Hurry up, and come out. 1 " That's what every man want-s, ladies—a bathroom of his own. If you can't give It to him on Father's Day, you might at least dncd It to him in your last will and testament. That will give him something to look forward to. Ike Adopts Gettysburg as Home In Retirement at Pennsylvania GETTYSBURG, Pa. <JP) — Gen. Dwight D.
