Cominq Events Social Calendar J. Montlar C. Ellis, Jr., off and throw a few brickbats at women in general. It's a cinch, you see. to get a column Idea every day If . you happen to be a man. Or U.S. (Hoolifd Sucker) But any woman columnist who started referring In her husband as the B.B. (Beloved Brute) or the rt.H. (Handsome Husband) would wind up. her column-writing career in a hurry. Her nusband would see 10 tnat. The woman columnist's field is also limited by the fnct that she can't make hay out of her own bewilderment as a parent. It's funny when a man does it, but a woman isn't supposed to take parental problems so lightly. Th.- woman columnist would be called a traitor to her sex if she ridiculed women's styles, and H wouldn't make for funny reading, anyhow . . . because whatever she might say about them, she wears them too.
