Weddings are romantic. There's the bride in misty white, the handsome bridegroom and the bridesmaids in lovely dresses. There are flowers in profusion, guests in confusion, gorgeous gifts and warm wishes for happiness. Then after the dreamy interval of the honeymoon, the bride packs her gown away in tissue paper and they settle down to the business of ordinary living. Almost before she figures out what to do with the four pressure cookers given to her as wedding presents she finds out that the dashing, debonair creature she married is a mere man after all. And it is a man she has Vo live with. What else is there for a girl to marry? * * * I wonder who ever started ihe umor that it is the'women who ire hard to understand. Maybe t was some man too lazy to bother to find out what made his .vife tick and who just threw up iis handri and said women are nade to be loved not understood. Or may'be it was some- gal who itartcd the idea that women are so complicated so's she'd seem mysterious and add a little interest. . For my money, men are us'c as hard to understand as women. Maybe even a little more difficult. * * * Personally I have put in nearly fifteen years trying to understand men, one man in particular, and believe me, I'm just getting started. But if it would help any of the current crop of June brides, I'd be willing to contribute some unsolicited advice on the subject of understanding men. Not that I expect it'll help any for living with a man is something every girl has to work out for herself. lions to convince men that housework isn't for women only and then it was the passing of the oldfashioned hired girl that really turned the trick. Men are more hairy than women (except on the scalp), they have deeper voices and they are much strong- all It's a good thing to admire these peculiarly male attributes. It will not only flatter your man, you may even get a lot of heavy furniture" moved just by admiring his strong, strong muscles. At least the advice won't you anything. cost We shall start with the assumption that most men, at least the ones you and I married, are pretty nice. They bark and growl a\little once in a while but they are trainable and they respond to good treatment. With a little patience you can get them to answer your • command and if you start early enough and are firm enough with them they can be .entirely house-broken. This is the same technique to apply in raising poodles. | * I If you are more interested in having a good husband than a well-trained house pet, you don't try to order him around at all. There are more subtle and lots more effective methods of getting your own way. The person' who said you can catch more flies with sugar than you can with vinegar wasn't kidding and it sure applies to living with and oving a man. Above all, never, never, nag, for nagging has 'uined more marriages, or at least taken the joy out of them than my other single factor. m » • Men are terribly proud of being nale. Nothing hurts their self- esteem more .than a hint that hey might be the least bit sissi- ied. That's why it took genera- When men gel angry they need physical force to let off steam, because by custom they are denied the feminine luxury of a good cry. It's a little anti-social to go around hitting people, so they have to work off their mad by hitting inanimate objects shouting and swearing or by complaining to their wife. So many times a man will come home and raise an awful fuss about a skimpy meal or a sloppy living room when -it's really an inefficient employee, a critical boss or a difficult customer.that's eating him. Or he might be worrying about biljs, the raise in wholesaler's prices or a deadline contract. And there's always a slim outside chance that he's angry because the meal really is skimpy or the living room actually messy. * * * Men are more sex conscious than women or at least they express it differently. No woman but an out-and-out hussy would go around whistling at a good looking man or perking up at a well turned ankle the way men do. Just because a husband has quite a bit of the wolf in him does not mean that he doesn't love his wife as long as he limits his interest to looking. In a way a little mild wolfing is kind of a compliment to you. He has an eye for feminine charm and you must have rated mighty high in that department for it was you he picked to marry. * * It has been said, .by a man, naturally, that when he stops looking they'll be patting his face with a shovel. But confidentially, I wonder if the leering anc whistling that all men are pront to isn't a bit put on. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if some of the drooling at Marilyn Monroe's picture and quite a few of the remarks about the contents of a sweater are committed only because it's expected of them.

A picnic noon. dinner followed at the boys doing it, and he wants to be just as masculine as the next guy. i * * The double standard is still very much in operation even if women have long since gained the vole and are found in most places that men are.

Almost matchless vaniety and tremendous savings. Sizes 22 to 30. vagance such as a fishing trip never seems to put the family budget out of kilter the way the purchase of some feminine frippery does. * * * You'll be happier if you just accept this double standard and not try to fight it. It applies to many more fields than faithfulness and morality. Men expect women to be a little more refined, a lot more virtuous, much less impatient and infinitely more understanding than they are. And trying to live up to our part of the double standard gives us gals such a lovely feeling of superiority. * * * Men are an interesting, sometimes exasperating and always worth while subject to try to understand. Apply yourself to it as if your life depended on it for it does. At least the happiness >f your marriage does and that's an awfully important part of life. Now, is all this information on understanding men perfectly clear to you June brides? Because if it is, maybe you can turn around and explain it to me. * * * The mail this week brought a letter from John M. Henry, Director of Public Affairs for tin- Dos Moines Register and Tribune. Mr Henry says, "Your column about the imaginary dinner party certainly was good reading. I would like to have listened in, for instance, to .conversations between Betty Nil-Donald and Bishop Sheehan. The column was very much like VanLoon's in the Lives. Did you read it? If not, you should, it seems to me." 1 haven't read it, but I'm going down to the library and have Beth look it up for mo. * * * I had a nice visit this week with Teddy Larson Fischer, a friend from the days when we were young and gay. "Toots", us we called her way back then, is really enjoying her new daughter born to them after three sons and she looks fit after recovering from a serious operation. The Fischers live in LaPorte, Indiana, and they recently saw the Rev. and Mrs Sjostrand. Rev. Sjostrand was a popular Pastor of the First Lutheran church here in the 1930's and is now serving a church in LaPorte. Incidentally, I was amused to hear the name of the Fischer'i dentist. It's Dr. Toothacre! * * * Last week I told the story of Sparky the lamb belonging to Gretchen and Jon Deim. Mary Ann went to Brownies where Mrs Deim is one of her leaders and came home to tell me that Sparky no longer belongs to them. ''We traded Sparky for hull a horse." said Irma Lee. "We chose tiie back half rather than the front because the front is where you have to feed it!" » » • I am fresh out of recipes at present and I am waiting for you to send me some. Lots of you have promised to do this. — GRACE.
