Apparently, as J quickly learned, while a mutual k>v« of Bach and kindred loathing ot Gertrude Stein may make the genesis of a very satisfactory courtship, thoy do not necessarily insure a fine In wedlock, it is the big things that count most, like: "Why aren't the shirts bank yel from the laundry?" "What happened to the $3.00 for the milkman that was left on the rcfrig- : eralor7" and, "Fish again? OH •Heavens!" Money (that ugly word 1 ,) Is the root of much unhappy connubial disorder. The original difficulty ^probably arose because many men labor under the misapprehension that their financial support is the '.pivotal point of the union, am iregard their limited contributions •to the family exchequer the way imost people look upon their own [ pletely when the Yankee dollar is involved, and proceed strictly on the political doctrine of "To the victor belongs the spoils," like two hungry dogs scrapping for the same bone, • "I don't like it," said John/when I told him. "Whatever money we managed to get is not mine or yours, but ours. If marriage is a partnership, why shouldn't H ex- cnd to Ihe partnership property? 'hy should eitVier one of us be -ilioned, with the other in a posi- on to dole out little extras like special handbag for you, or a umidor for me?y My wallet," he aid, with a final flourish, "is ours." ^>UT the principle, thus installed, remained. Its subsequent suc- ess, moreover, has often made me ioubt those popular tales o£ femi- philanthropy to the displaced persons of Europe. The fallacy is a [obvious,,as the smell of a rotten 'egg. Any man who honestly add !up the housekeeping, houseclean Hng, hostessing, humoring, an • companioning services h* gets (from a wife should realize that he getting it all for less than wholesale, and what's more, should be honored to pay. There is no doubt ^about it: marriage must have been ^invented by & man. ' When I was first married, my Jmother suggested that John give fme a regular allowance each week ;for my own expenses, or else keep ! one for himself, and let me pilot us by the bank. Either idea, she insisted, was solid marital principle, and this is unfortunately ; true. Many husbands and wives abandon community planning coco- nine extravagance that dot our urrent fiction. Only a lady on an allowance, without any notion Of usl what the }ackpot behind her s, will recklessly succumb to each lew dress that she sees, or fall victim to each new hat. The average American wife, if entrusted with the family funds, is as careful of her charge as a hen silting on an egg. No grandiose tipping no highest-priced entrees on the menu (peculiarly male oflenses; arc ever tolerated; and frankly, i is my conviction that if any woman ever got put in the White House, this country would not only balance its budget, but have a beautiful nesl egg besides. Another treacherous area in marriage involves personal temperament John and I had our own No- Man's Land. It was astounding to discover, for instance, in fairly quick time, that John, who was a vigilant Paul Revere and Jack Dalton rolled into one where his medical practice was concerned, was "What-you can do tomorrow, never do today," otherwise. This male creed, which resulted in doorknob* that were rarely re- placed, suits that never got to the ailors until they were beyond reclaim, and pictures that were .ardily hung, was not very endearing to my own mind, whose motto was, "A stitch in time leaves you free tomorrow." There was also the seemingly small, but to me, all-important matter of going to sleep. Simple, humdrum business, you may think, but not for us. By habit and inclination, I soon discovered, that whereas it invariably took me 30 or more minutes to drift off; for John a pair of pajamas and a comfortable bed acted IJke an overdose of morphine. * « * PSYCHIATRISTS, as i am well aware, have some fancy labels to attach to both states of mind, but naturally, these were of no help to either of us. Whether a particular mental disorder is traced to a great grandmother's dislike for green apples, or a red jalloon in a frustrated childhood, .he curative value is almost nonexistent; first, since there is no actual standardized treatment available, and second, since if the suETerer had the necessary will t FRECKLES AND HIS FRIENDS BY MERRILL BL06SE* Matter -tfr*****.^ v-ii *• * ' V ''-V; »J'V. .'j.

The difficulty in synchronising our sleeping habits was further complicated by my desire to rehash the day's events, like a courtroom summation, before retiring. John's sleeping grunts, on the few occasions when J tried this "man lo man" talk, were definitely incapable of passing for conversation, and I found, to my disgust, that I was delivering an unappreciated Shakespearean soliloquy. "Why don't you just go to sleep Hke I do?" he asked, finally, when 1 complained about having to stay up alone in the dark. "I can't," I said. "1 told you that I never could.** "It's oasy," John anscwered smugly. "Just close your eyes, and that does it.
