(AWC.)" COURTER REWS TUESDAY,' DEC.' Z, l»St Smile, Mister when You Kid about Mustaches- His Spouse May Object MCW TOWC W—Wb« you kid Miiriu wear muataehee, mister— „.. , ami)*. ,r can take th* ribbing in high . a»turt, but not their womenfolk. Ther* la something about a ache on the lip of the man she i that brln«« out the maternal i In a gal. Bar er**d U simple: "Love that •a*—a*«r* hla mustache." And if you rator ever ao slightingly to the fusa pttefc under his nostrils she l*ape t* its defens* almost as ijalfMa- a* if you had trampled one «| feer ehlMreV She counter attacks with fury, with fists, with words. Particularly words. , I tomd this out by writing a pice* QMflrttooIng th* romantic Impact of th* mustache. My theory w ,, t>1 j la—that a man ordinarily a»ow« a muatacha to cure an in Merit? complex and that It turns him tote a snob faster than if •onMOM gava him a minion dol- lara. Naturally, T wai honest enough to admit myself that personal jealousy k*4 Influenced my thinking: The only time I ever tried to grow a mustache It drooped like limp h«y.~ Well, most of my friends with mustache* were quite tolerant about tee* whole, thing, twirling their small fur forests as they atHi»i»i1 tauntingly: ."Snobs are wet Deo't you wish you could be a snob, too, Junior?" i But the women got, angry. They said a mustache is downright lovable. „ l*i«fall Whiskered Lip "Being a woman I would ten times rather be kissed by a mus- taclM than all the smooth-faced yokels Uke you or some other men I could think of," wrote a riled l*dy from Ann Arbor, Mich. * Before I could brood my way oul of tie inferiority complex this note gave mei another one came from ' an Akron,''Ohio, lass: "Believe me, being kissed by a ma> with a mustache isn't at al' like beln? hit in the face with i ,'dry. toothbrush It's more like hav- ' ing the warmth of nature close to you—cavcmanish. Warmth la a nice " necessity in a kiss " , Well, yes. But you could argue en those grounds that a rubber ho water bag Is even more romantic than a mustache. A gentleman sailor from Boston vired me pityingly; > "Haven't you heard the old say tec of Scottish lassies, that kissing , a man without a mustache Is like eating an egg without'salt?" .Another man said: ' Kofcert Taylor Look ' "T grew a mustache because my wife likes Robert Taylor, and h has a mustache. Now my wife like me, too—I think, I hope." - SUH another fellow threatened to bring me before ,Gov, Dewey of New York, who has packed a mustache for years,, and added: "That'll mean Sing Sing Prison for you—so better take care." There also was a perfect torrent of feminine mall that can be summed up this way: , I love my husband nnd am proud of his mustache. And your wife would probably like you better If you grew a mustache too— on top of your head." Well, okayj so I was wrong, mustache can n« more than mouse cover. Behind every manly mustache lurks a tender woman's bristly pride. A balding man needs every ro rhftritio crutch he can lean upon. Si its a pair of sweeping musUchtos for me right away. The kind grow;myself make women weep with' laughter Instead of sigh wit! love. So I'm buying myself today IB grandest set of rare old uslaches on the market. I just hope my new fatfites-don t realc loo many girlish hearts. Fef McCuisf ion To Investigate School Case MTTM5 ROCK (*)—Ed MeCllls- :ion. director of the State Eduactlon Department'!
