Minor Ailments Hinder Garner Answering Mail TJVALDE, Tex.—(/P)—Former Vice President John Nance Garner wants his friends to know he's not mad at them.

The ailments are minor, the 83- year-old Texan told Victor Dittmar of the Uvalde Leader News. Otherwise, he feels fine. Just doesn't want to answer those letters right now. Mary Haworth's Mail Editor's Note: Pacing marriage with BO money saved, man tell* girl tbat It Is her responsibility to pay for honeymoon. DEAR MARY HAWORTH: This Is the problem of a dear friend of mine. Ann and John are planning to be married in June. Their funds are very limited, John has nothing saved, and Ann has a small bank account and her own furnished apartment, live. v.-here they expect to Both are employed and plan to keep their jobs after' they marry, and they have in mind a /.implej wedding. Ann's mother is dead, and her family consists of her father and sister. Her father is unemployed 111 take oath that she hasn't yet sponsored the ide that John promulgates IB her name. It is probable that John picked up his self-indulgent notion of who pays for what from the Edward Streeter book and movie—"Father of the Bride"—which makes a rueful joke of how little a wedding costs the bridegroom,'and how exhaustively" the bride's family is supposed to spend to launch the undertaking. Still, In suggesting the sky as ] the limit for the bride's-famlly and lives alone; and the sister is married and has a child. John's! 4- parents are living and he has five Alms brothers and sisters. The problem is that John seems to ihink Ann should pay for the wed- spending, nothing was said or implied by__S.treeter to the effect that the bride or her side of the house finances the honeymoon. ding supper and honeymoon. They are to be married at 5 o'clock in the afternoon, and have a small supper just for the bridal party Before going away. Several friends save been advising John to share expenses, but he keeps quoting Emily Post, saying the bride is supposed to pay for everything. Will you give us the straight of it—so I can show your article to John? C. S. Man's Assertion Ts Preposterous DEAR C. S.: John's absurd allegation that a bride pays the expenses of the honeymoon automatically ex- DOSBS his false claim to scholarship n the field of decorum. There is no traditional precedent for his statement. It is my impression that Emily Post, hi her classic "Blue Book of Social Usage," keeps up with changing times In revised volumes— adapting the enduring principles of ;ood form to latterday exigencies in human relations. But even so, LUMBER NEEDS WESTERN MARYLAND LUMBER*? 1 M C M U LUN Mqhwoy >Phone2\ZO His Helplessness I've seen maybe half a dozen etiquette books, antique and modern, in the t lifetime's reading; and if memory serves me, each decrees that the bride and/or her family (or guardian) pays for all the folderol of the wedding — except her ring and bouquet, and the clergyman's fee. These are the bridegroom's obligation prior to the ceremony; and it is permissible for him to provide flowers for the bridesmaids, and small gifts for ushers and other attendants, if he desires. Once the vows. are exchanged, however, the costs of bliss devolve upon him in toto, theoretically. He foots the bill for the honeymoon. As a matter of fact, the practice of a man's financing the honeymoon (if any) is so generally followed that authorities on. manners don't even touch on it. They take for granted that everybody knows and subscribes to this unwritten rule; and that nobody will dispute it. '' As John has no money saved and plans to move into Ann's apartment after marriage, I take it that he cannot afford a honeymoon,—which means that Ann would have to finance their going-away, If she wants a trip. To 'cover his helplessness, he is trying "to, argue that be's not- supposed to do what £e knows he can't do, namely—pick up the checks as the marriage gets going. All things considered, I think his attitude is that of a heel; and I believe any jury of self respecting males would agree with. me. M.H.
