Mary Hatt?orth v s Mali Editor's Note: Wife prefers husband's conversation to anyone else's; RtsenU friends' attempts split couples at dinner DEAR MARY HAWORTH: My husband and I have been married for eight years, have three children and are very happy. We have a large circle of friends, and it is our custom to get together in small groups and go out, to dinner, two or three times a month. One member of the circle is a woman who has been married three times. She is a "chaser" and seems to have a special fondness for my husband. I know without question that he is not interested in her, so that isn't really a problem. However, when we go out to dinner in groups as I mentioned, and this couple is along, Mrs. X invariably insists that husbands and With iliclj who like good grooming, our shirt service is a "must."

Centre Street Phone 1753 wives be separated as widely as possible; and U she can wangle a seat next to Bob, she looks like the cat that ate the canary. Mrs. X claims that it is not proper etiquette to sit next to one's husband. I suppose this is true of a private dinner party, but is it a hard-and-fast rule at a public restaurant, when you are among old friends? I enjoy dining out with my husband; I still find his conversation more stimulating than that of anyone I know. Most of the couples we know feel the same about their spouses; and etiquette or no etiquette, we don't make a fetish of "splitting up". I would appreciate your slant on this problem. E. S. Recalls Proverb About The Devil DEAR E. S.: In citing "proper etiquette" to justify her flirtatious pursuit of other women's men, Mrs. X reminds one of the proverb about the Devil's quoting Scriptures to suit his purpose. If she is tHe stickler for form that she claims to be, she ought to refrain from directing the seating at table when she is merely one of those present, and not the party giver. Distributing guests at the table is the prerogative of the hostess (or host), if any—at either a restaurant or a home dinner. And in such case, if the company is large, married couples are reshuffled to permit conversational variety. But the proposition you present is entirely different. As I get the picture, your group of young-marri«ds dines out occasionally on a dutch-treat basis, with the husbands sharing the cost. In essence, this is a continuance of the dating arrangement of courtship days. ' Husband and wife are "on the SWITCHES TO CALVERT AFTER 60-SECOND TEST town" for an evening of fun to-! gether—in company with likemlnd- ed friends, presumably. Which means that Mrs. X's insistence on "splitting up" is contrary to the spirit of the occasion. When girls go out with their best beaux, or men take out their best girls, the idea isn't to sack them for somebody else, as seems to be Mrs. X's theory. Don't Be Pushed Around By Pirate Mrs. X is an aggressive person, to judge by her forceful manipulation of group behavior, and greedy in taking what she wants that she can get. regardless of social prohibitions, I should imagine. No doubt the driving quality of her performance accounts in large part for her multiple-marriage record at a youngish age. And my advice is—respect your intuition, and don't try to deny your concern about her predatory antics. If she is stalking your Bob, there's no sense giving her all the breaks, when you are wholly opposed' to her objectives. Next time she tries to scramble the seating to serve her schemes, don't yield to her insistence. Manifest a determined will of your own. And If possible, tactfully plan a combined resistance operation with the other defensive wives beforehand. Yet if this isn't feasible for any reason, take care of yourself lone- handed—in cheerfully sustaining an adamant preference to dine at your husband's elbow, during these dating expeditions. If he isn't interested in Mrs. X, and you are frankly fascinated by him, he won't mind your blocking her game, I'm sure. M. H.
