Recently several men have told me that they are regular readers of this column. This not only pleased and flattered me, it also inuclc me decide to write something especially for the boys. So, Hits week Woman's World is .^trictly for masculine readers, particularly husbands. You girls .qo on and read about the recipe contest, I want to talk to your Old Man. The subject is, "Grace's Handy Tips For Husbands In Difficult Situations With The Little Woman." * » * The first situation has lo do with fur coats. Sooner or later every wife is going to hit her husband for one. The first symptoms of the disease Mmkus Cove- teous are a dreamy look on her f;ice when she reads the fur advertisements and there may be a .•-light expression of nausea when SMC sends her old cloth coat to the rk-ancrs. Chills are another >ymptom and they are apt to be- <-tim<.' acute when she Rets a loud i-f the new fur coat on the back cf another gal at bridgi- club. Then there'll be some irrational talk on the part of the patient — that is it'll sound like raving to y>u but it will leally be careful- ly caeulated remarks about the price and variety of skins in the new fur coat some other husband has just bought his wife. This is the time, you as a husband shouln deliver the 7omment that may save you several hundred dollars. It is, "It's a nice enough coat, dear. But don't you think it makes her look a trifle plump?" • • » The next situation concerns one of those times when you are several hours late for supper. It doesn't matter whether you really were working overtime or if you were carousing around with the boys. It means only one thing to your wife: she cooked a good dinner, waited for you to come home and finally went ahead and fed the kids. Your portion has been slowly simmering on the back of the stove. Now is the time you give her a hug. and a little kiss, too if she does not dodge too quickly. Then you .say. "Honey, you are such a good funk, anything tastes delicious. Even when it's all dried out!" And if you really want to butter her up, tell her that because you were so late and upset her schedule, you'll go ahead and wash all the dishes! SEE THEM NOW !

It's a pickle recipe, but it was not one of the entries in last week's recipe contest. It comes from Edna Grimm of Gilmore City and its for Sweet Dill Pickles. Every time she comes to visit her nephew, Harold Schumaker of Whittemore she brings them a jar of these pickles and they are really good. Sweet Dill Pickles 6 cups vinegar 13 cups water 1 cup salt Boil the brine together for 15 minutes. Pack pickles and dill in jars and pour brine over them. Add 1 tablespoon sugar to each quart of pickles. Put in cold-pack canner, cover with water and heat to a boiling point. Let stand till cold. —GRACE. Livermore by Lena Altman Ed and Pat Cullen The next situation is probably one you never get into. But your wife may wrongly accuse you of it some time. It has to do with paying too much attention to attractive blondes — or brunettes or redheads. If your wife catches you at it, and puts her own interpretation on it, the best thing to do is to pretend you were talking about business. Now you can't just say right out, "We were talking about business", because your Frau will come right back at you and say, "Yes, I know. Monkey business!" You gotta be more subtle. If you are a salesman you tell her the lady to whom you were talking is in the market for a new car or a washing machine and you were discussing over-drives or rinsing cycles. If you are a plumber, you say she's been having trouble with her heating system and if you are a dentist you explain that her left molar has been aching. You've got to work this out according to your own line. But if you are in the hatchery business. for instance, and the blonde — or brunette or redhead— does not know a pullet from a pull- man, boy, you are in trouble! Don't call for an extra advice from Grace. * • * Occasionally your wife will have planned for you a whole. lovely Sunday to be spent at a jolly family reunion — her side of the family, naturally. You may have something you'd rather be. •doirrff-. - If -you use- youPheatTV&u can get out of the gathering of the clan and still keep the temperature in your home above zero. Talk it up gradually — at first be enthusiastic about the charms of your sister-in-law and then say something complimentary about Uncle Ezra's sense of humor. Next remark about how well all her relatives get along together. And for the final windup, "You and your family have M) much in common, I always hate to intrude into the conversations. Why don't you go with- '>ut me and why don't I go fishing 0 " Be careful in your wording lest, "your family has so much in common" come out, "your family is so common". If you make that mistake, she'll really clobber you. • * * Those times when you arrive home after bedtime, remember it (\>*Cf ri" good to tell your wife you wtre ;-ittin^ up with a sick fri' % nd. Nowadays, must sick friends that need sittins-up with are in the hospital and visiting hours arc over by 9 p.m. If you .ire real, real lucky you can still square it with the little woman the rvxt tiino you happen to he ( out till all hours.

You were i never more glamorous than you : arc ri.nhi now in that lovelj At housecleaning times Uiere are lots of jobs that demand the strong masculine back. It also takes a strung masculine mind to get out of doing them. Agree to move the furniture, wash the walls or pqt on the storm windows when your wife first asks you to do these jobs, but put it off for a while. Then dig up one or more ol the several art if!', s appearing in current niaga/ines, about muscular strain causing heart trouble in comparitively young men. Assume a "nut long lor this world" expression and leave the articles around where your wife will see them. Talk u little bit abi/ut lifting making you puff and high ladders making you dizzy. Unless she looks exceptionally well in black, she'll get the idea and go ahead and do the jobs herself. But if you have just played a fast 36 holes of golf the day before, you'd better forget the whole scheme and do the lifting. She's not so dumb as you hoped she'd be. • • » Really, fellows, wives are easy to get along with. All you have to do is make with the s*weet talk, early enough, often enough and in just the right places. Even though she knows you have ulterior motives, an unexpected gift will keep her happy for weeks, a pound of chocolates now and then will sweeten up her disposition and a few words of appreciation for her efforts will make her work harder than ever for you. And even if you can't sing a note, the sweetest seranade a wife can hear is, "Here, honey, take this ten bucks and buy something just for yourself!" She'll think you are the most wonderful husband a girl could marry. And she'll probably spend the ten bucks on shoes foi the kids. » • • Since this week the gabbing is just for the guys, the recipe should come from a man. also. Bud Robinson told me he has one for the column and he calls it Breakfast. Clip it out. it may come in handy some time when your wife isn't around to cook for you. According to Bud. this is the way you do it. 1. Open the bread box. 2. Take out two slices of bread. 3. Place bread in toaster and push down the lever. 4. Open cupboard door. 5. Take out glass. 6. Open refrigerator door. 7. Take out milk and pour it into glass. 8. Watch toaster and catch slices of toast when they pop up. 9. Butter toast, if you can find the butter. Add jam, if desired. 10. Leave all crumbs, dirty glass and grease spots for your wife to clean up. These instructions must be carefully ro«- lowed. If you leave out even one step, you'll be all fouled up. Hi Jinks * * * * Devoted lo "Behind The Scenes" Hems From Algona High School. Mr and Mr? Laurence Frederick left Tuesday for Montana where they will spend a two week's vacation visiting her parent?. Mrs Ruth Stiles, who spent the summer here visiting her son. Jerry Stiles and family, left Saturday for State College, N. M., where she is a house mother- Mr and Mrs Harold Gjerstad and family attended a family picnic Sunday at Humboldt. Mary Glaus, who is employed in the office of KRNT in De.s Moines, spent the weekend here with her sister, Mrs Burton Bunde. and with her brothers. Mr and Mrs Henry Groh spent last week visiting Mr and Mrs Martin Miller at Lake Winnebe- gosh. Minn. Mr and Mrs James Meyers and family of Lakota were Sunday- visitors at the Jerry Stiles home. There was a family gathering at the Henry Monson home in honor of Mr and Mrs William Wilder of Syracuse, N. Y., and Mrs Anna Monson of Mexico, N. Y. Eldon Monson. who has been stationed in Idaho, spent a short leave with his parents, Mr and Mrs Harold Monson. He has been transferred from Idaho to Chanute Field. 111.

Guests Sunday at the home of Mr and Mrs George Tfdebeck were Mr and Mrs Damon Cole and two children. Mr Damon is the new superintendent at Ver- rdfon. ^Fourteen- ladies went to the home of Mrs Francis Collins Saturday afternoon to surprise her on her birthday. Classes quieted down considerably the second week of school. Students and teachers used the opportunity to rest up from the first week. English Lit class was really quiet, going up the stairs from a movie with their shoes off. « » * The cover of the 1955 Annual is provocative. It makes one wonder from which Scotch clan the plaid cover w<>s borrower. » • * A plague of flies descended on the school building, making classes slightly more confusing. Sample quote: Teacher: (to student waving arms around wildly) "Question?" Student: "No. 'Flies." * • • During the second week of school, things got in full swing. Accomplishments: Cheerleaders elected, chorus selected, the Night of the Watermelon, and Mr. Palmer's first poem, written for the Emmetsburg game. This one had a little morale booster for tho Junior salesmen (they needed it after watching last year's Juniors operate). The poem ended with these lines: "And the Juniors cry amidst the din. Tally ho! Just look at the money roll in!" * * • The first student council meeting was a strange one. When the votes were counted each time, the President noticed that although there were only supposed to be twenty members voting, 21 votes were recorded. At the end of the meeting, the truth of the matter came out. It seemed there were two delegates from one freshman home room. The imposter confessed immediately. His reason? "I just didn't want ;o go to class." —SS Thursday, Sept. 15, 1955 Algeria (la.) Upper DM Moin*»-7 to Bradgate to visit their daughter. Stella, and her family, the James Burns'.
