Unhappy Couples Frequently Sell Marriage Short If you are happily married »teer clear of unhappy married couples. That may sound like a selfish attitude. But It Isn't a question of selfishness—just self-protection. An unhappily married couple Is always, either consciously or unconsciously, sell- Ing marriage short. Spend enough time with a couple who are forever tearing each other down, who are always taking a gloomy attitude toward life, a n d _ marriage Use It Ruth Mlllett doesn't look so rosy. The unhappy wife usually tries to mske the happy wire think that men Imve the best of It and that men are selfish, inconsiderate and unappreciatlve. And the husband who isn't happy In his own marriage Is forever making cracks about wives and ferriage and the stupidity of wom- ":T. Any way you look at it—It's bad for the morale of a contented husband and wife to get too chummy with a couple who are bored with each other and with marriage. They Have Nothing to Offer They have no constructive Ideas to offer. They aren't planning and looking ahead eagerly to the future, but fuming about the present. Their- marriage holds nothing that is in any way Inspiring to another couple. So steer clear of them. You can't do them nny good. And they may do a lot of harm. Search out happily married couples for your friends. They won't sell marriage short. The time you spend with them will be far more relaxed nnd carefree lhan the hours you spend with an unhappily married pair. American Girls Have Good Time In Paris, But Come Home to Marry Scholarships to Malayans SINGAPORE CAP)—The government has announced a new scheme whereby 50 Malayan boys under U each year will be awarded scholarships in English schools. Requirements for the scholarships are that the boys must have been born in the Colony, be physically fit and have successfully completed the fourth year in R vernacular school. Value of the scholarships Is JET BLACK ,..PATENT; LEATHER for trie smooth, suova charming -slender foot look - -' - /\ The NEW Platform 13.95 The NEW Sandal 13.95 Good Shoes & Hosiery By DOROTHY ROE AsMtUttd fmt Wonwn's Editor American girls In Paris have a wonderful ti:ne, but they always come back and marry U. S. men. So says pretty Julie Smith, a girl from Buffalo, N. Y., who went to Paris for a vacation four years ago and has been there ever since. Back for a flying visit, Julie reveals she improved her spare lime In the French capital by writing a novel. "Cakes and Male", which naturally Is an ab0 ut American girls in Paris. Julie can sp«ak from first-hand knowledge, having had a succession of highly exciting Jobs during her stay abroad. When she first decided Paris would be * nice place to stay, she got a job as radio writer for UNESCO. Later she worked as Parip Correspondent Paris correspondent for the Chicago Tribune, then ran her own pub- icity office for a while and for the last year has been public relations representative in France for an American airline. Now this slight, blonde young lady hat been appointed to a Job that would turn most, girls green with envy—she Is to be roving representative for her firm, traveling to ail the airline's offices in Europe, dividing her time between such places as London. Paris, Helsinki, Rome, Vienna and Berlin Despite the glamor or her various Jobs, Julie says: "It's wonderful to get back to an American hairdresser. In Paris they give 5-ou one of two hairdoes—Joan ol Arc or Napoleon. I've been Napoleon lately." Home Is Best Julie also allows it's nice to have $2.00 a month in addition to complete exemption from school fees. enough heat again, to ride elevators that work, and to buy all the nylon stockings she wants. Believe It or not, she also Is glad to get back to New York shops, after being exposed to the Paris haute couture. She explains: "Unless you're loaded with money, it's difficult to buy smart clothes In Paris. Either you go to the famous dressmakers and mortgage the old family homestead to pay for a dress, or you buy material and hunt up a little seamitresi to make it up Into a garment. , There is nothing in between." jf. The average French girl is not as well-dressed as the averagt American stenographer or secretary, says Julie. But every French girl usually has one extra-special dress which she wears (or festive occasions—and then she is strictlr knockout. Clothes Problem Julie solved her own personal clothes problem by getting a Job representing some of the top couture houses In Paris, but she's still happy to be able to pick tip a smart, pretty dress for S2S, readymade. And she intends to buy some American shoes while she's here, too. Nylon lingerie Is another thing practically impossible to find In France, says Julie, and such garments are renuircd equipment for a globetrotter. All in all, Julie, lately of Vassar College and Buf/alo Is enjoying renewal of acquaintance with the land of the free and the home of the brave—just as a breather, or course, before she starts cloud- hopping again. One thing, however, Is sure: "When I'm ready to get married.i/'rf it's going to be a genuine U. s.8 male." 'Chevrolet Feature Show Now Going On!
