It's simply n normal feminine impulse, says Dr. William V. Sllvcr- ?ri?, well-known psychlairist. The much-discussed "battle of the sexes" begins before the age of 6, says Dr. Sllverberp in his new book, "Childhood Experience and Personal Destiny." Men and women are born to battle, from the cradle to the grave, arid though the period of courtship and early marriage may bring about a temporary truce, don't kid yourself, says Dr. Silverberg. It's only temporary. As boy and girl progress through high school and college, the battle lines are more firmly drawn, with the banding of the rivals In groups oj their own .sex — B nn B 5 . clubs, fraternities and sororities. The doctor, who speaks Irom 30 years of phychlatric experience, warns women to beware of the excessively chivalrous man — the one who is always first to open a door, hold a coal or light a cigarette for a woman. His explanation: "There is always a certain condescension in such gentlemanly behavior, as if the man were making allowances for (be intrinsic Inferiority of the female." Some women "-go through life fuming Impotently at this age-old strife. But women are learning how to get the best of the deal in the long run, in the opinion of a representative ot the modern school Mrs. Ernest of Tutxviler. Miss. aud "1 feminine thought—Audrey Toiler, Hollywood star and leading lady ol the CBS radio comedy series "Meet Millie." Says Audrey: "American women are getting smart. They've caught on to all Ihe men's tricks and they still let them go right on playing boss, if it makes thorn happy." j Audrey feels, in fact, that the • gal who has her wits about her j can let the boys keep on setting the rules—"at least until those rules interfere with her own plans. Then she can quickly and quietly maneuver him Into second place without his ever noticing the switch." The .smart woman, contends Audrey, pretends to be dumb, thus buUerinpr up the male ego and keeping life on a pleasantly even keel. After all, she points out. we can't very well get along without the guys, so the wisest course is to put up with them as they are. One thin? Is certain—they aren't going to change. Since every girl still seems (o want one of these male specimens for her very own, says Audrey, she has to be smart to (A) get him in the first place and (B) keep him in H comparatively docile state thereafter. For husbanri- hunling girls she has this advice: "Never let up for an instant, and use uyery trick in the book— you'll need them. As mama says, you've got to follow through. Too many girls .get the guy right into the frying^pan-and then turn off the gas." .-_"~~ Coming Events .supper at f>:30 p.m. Mrs. Louis Cherry is hostess for ihp first meeting of the season of Mid-Week Club.

It's Too Late to Blame Husbands For Expecting Their Wives to Work Blytheviile Hospital, Friday. She "111"" Women's problems don't stay the same. They change with the changing times. One of the most noticeable differences in the letters that came to me when I started writing this column some 15 years a^o women were complaining that their hus- ba n d s didn't want their wives to work. Today a. great many of them are complaining because their husbands EXPECT them to work. Women wanted to know then how to overcome their husbands 1 "silly, masculine pride" that made them ashamed to have a wife helping to Ruth MilleU earn the living for the family. But In just a few, short years women have done such a good job of overcoming that "silly, masculine pride" a lot of them are complaining that their husbands expect them to hold down a full-time Job and do ali the housework, ton. In a way. it !s rather strange that women didn't foresee the possibility that, if they finally persuaded men there was nothing wrong in a wife's holding down a job and earn- ing a pay check, the men would In time come to expect them to do Just that. And it is rather strange that they blame the men for such a normal reaction. What women wanted was for men to accept their right to work after marriage, but not to expect It. But the change in the masculina attitude toward women working didn't stop at such a convenient point. And because It didn't, a lot of women today are holding down Jobs, net because they still want to, but because their husbands have corns to expect them to. It's a problem, all richt.
