A popular spot for the mau- circulation yuletide wishes is the personal column of that staid newspaper, the Times. Some companies even are expressing their yule wishes on the printed pages. Hw«'a ment ia the Times' front p*g»,— personal cobnut: "TtoBriti* known Road Federation i« not tending Christmas cards this year. Instead it is making a daaattan to the Royal Society for tb* Prevention of Accidents." Another reads: "Cable and Wireless wish their friends a Merry Christmas and announce that they do not intend to send out company Christinas cards: Instead they are making a donation to the Missions to Seamen." Each day a few more persons jofa in what Us coma to be as the Times Christmas card game. The majority appear to be peers and peeresses, retired generals, admirals and judge*. Why do they * t»T "I may he old fashioned and square," said retired Judge Noel Hindley, "but the spirit has gone out of Christmas. If it was a real Christmas we are having I would have gone on sending cards." The surprise of 'this season, however, was the Christmas card of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Muir. A script-7/riter and author, Muir's card said: "Mr. and Mrs. Frank Muir are not taking an advertisement in the Times this year. Instead they are sending Christmas cards to their friends." Asked why, Muir replied: "My wife and I grew tired of seeing those stuffy announcements. The people who put in these advertisements need sending up a bit." Sending up is a British expression for taking down a peg or two.

IIAMO-NS By HAL ROYLE NEW YORK {AP) — There is a widespread belief that the most important language in the world today is English. However, there is in existence a language that is even more powerful and expensive. It is wife-talk. To become a real scholar of his widespread form of communication, it is practically necessary for the student to be two things: Male and married. The first thing a man has to earn about wife-talk is: It never means what it says. It has to be translated. Wife-talk It mad* up of hint and innuendo, gesture as well as spoken word. Another thing a husband needs to learn in dealing with his bride is never to take her oral expressions literally. Mystery between him and her be{ins at the altar and never ends. The rest of his life he will spend desperately trying to find out what the devil she is really rying to express. They are having a meal to- fether and she says sweetly, 'Dear, won't you have some more steak?" Th« recent bridegroom natu- •ally thinks she is interested in his welfare and pleasedly replies, "Yes, sweetie-pie, thanks, " think I will." What he doesn't realize is that wife-talk is* always couched in -he form of indirect discourse and that what his bride actually meant was, "I'm starved, stupid — pass me the meat." At a cocktail party she says of blonde the men are clustering around, "Isn't her hair lovely?" What she actually means is, 'Stay away from that dyed hus- ;y, Buster." She says wistfully on a rainy day, "If anything should ever happen to me, dearest, I want you to marry again and be happy." What she means is, "If you do, stupid, I'll haunt you forev- Gtoto-Gautfe, M«*«n City, la. Dec. 21, 1H4 Wife-talk, of course, requires an answering form of communw caiiou. This is known as hus-f band-talk. It has been scientifically reduced to a single sen-1 tence. No matter what a wife says,I the wise husband invariably replies: "Baby, you said a mouthful! This is the only thing he can say which is true. If he says anything else at all, he is bound to get himself in trouble. Open Monday and Friday 8 A. M. TO 9 P. M. STORE HOIKS DAILY: « A.M. to 5 P.M.
