There weren't any bills then and I thought it was great fun to have Ruth Millet! no re^pnn^ibility. other than .cooking and doing the housework which I loved"A .short lime later, he was in the icrvice and I did remarkably well on my own, not only with the banking, but I managed to .save quite a sum which I banked jointly.

American Coming Events Thursday Blytheville Duplicate Bridge League has meeting at Hotel No- Saturday at Walls Hospital to Mr.! ble. and Mrs. Johnson Blackwell. The! Mrs. J. F. Scrape entertains baby hns an older sister, Gail, who i members of the TLE Bridge Club t«rs are quite some distance away. "Now there are bills and I can't write checks, and when the bills pile up my husband creates such a fuss reminding me that he knows what lie js doing. I can't even look nt our savings book. If I ask for carfare, he digs 'way down for fifty cents. "He comes and goes when, he pleases. The car is his. Tile money is his. And he tells me I'm pretty lucky to have such a wonderful husband who does all the shopping. But I feel more and more like a whipped dog. I seem to have lost all confidence in myself." Who wouldn't, after a few years of that kind of treatment? But why have you put up with it so long? Surely if you have worked before, you can get another Job. whether your husband approves of your working or not. After all, ir ne isnf wining to put his earning; in a joint account or give you an allowance, he certainly has no right to object to your earning some money of your own. The main thing, however, is to stop feeling like a whipped dog and stand up and fight for your rights. And don't worry too mu :h over what your sudden independent spirit will do to your marriage. Almost any kind of change would be an improvement over the way it is now, if you are giving a fair description of it.

A reader, perhaps discouraged, by her appearance in slec 1 voices summer dresses, has asked for some exercises to reduce hers. 1. Stand erect with feet together or sit in a straight-backed chair in a e;ood posture. Raise arms above the head in ti straight-up position, j palms together. Now for the exer- i cise: Vigorously throw the arms j out to the sides so that they're ' parallel with the shoulders. j Bend the elbows and touch your I shoulders with your fingertips. | Now oving arms down to sides and i relax. Begin all over again. Work jr' .-thmically and precisely. Start with only nvo or three times and ; gradually work up to 10. j 2. This exercise can also be done ! standing or silting. Start with a food posture and extend arms before you at shoulder height, with p;'. 1 ' n s upward. With both hands working at once, group your finger tins avo"^ '. i'":c t'ti Q[ f-e thumb and then very slowly open the fin- rcrs to a count of 25. Stretch the fingers far apart and then fold them up aga in slowly. Feel the tension in fingers and elbows but the strer'.'lh will come from your upper arm, Don't .overdo these or any exercises. Work up gradually to as many as you C:MI do without becoming tn-ed. On the other hand, don't be a quitter if you really want results!
