m Tua>«*ay» • April 17, 1956 Mat Gtaiee Due to some misunderstanding 1^ havejnot received my invitation to.'your wedding ceremony which is taking place this week I have watched the mail every day' and though Hank Guderian did bring me a very welcome new • telephone book this morning, there was no while envelope with a crested royal message. Someone in your secretarial staff must have goofed or maybe you didn't know that due to new postal regulations you now have to write 209 S. Williams on my mail instead of just Algona, Iowa. • * • However, I am not peeved at you about the slip-up. I know that getting married sends any girl into a tizzy and you, with two ceremonies—civil and religious, are probably twice as mixed up as the average bride. To tell you send my regrets, anyway. I haven't got my Spring housecleaning done yet, I had bridge club at my house this week and Mary Ann has been home from school with a tummy upset. Besides, I don't have a single thing to wear. » » » I imagine you will be glad to get the whole thing over with and settle down to housekeeping. This business of having every aspect of your romance displayed to the world must be pretty wearing. Every time you change your dress, the fashion editors of the world gush over it; every word of sweet talk your" Prince cables you is lapped up by your Public. When your Pop pulled a Doo-boo by .hinting to the reporters that you always were a ittle head-strong, we heard about it clear out here in Iowa. the truth, i was going to have to It's a wonder you get enough privacy in which to take a bath, * • * '-.-;- ''• Now, I Hkd love, romance and marriage as much as the next gaJ and I'm always glad when a fam» otis person,' or a totally unknown one for that matter, finds happiness, fiut even I am'getting a little fed-up on reading so much about Kelly and Rainier. I knoW you can't help it that peo- ? le write so much about you and wouldn't have added to the reams of guff by doing this letter to you in Woman's World excepting that I simply couldn't think of another column subject. I tell you, Your Grace, this Grace sometimes gets pretty das- parate for something to write about. * * * Like most old married tedles, I like to give advice to brides. It seems to me. Grace, that fifteen years of living with the same man entitles me to give you a few tips. Not that I expect you to take me very seriously for every girl .has to find out for lerself but there are many things that husbands have in common whether he is a plumber or a prince. : -. • * * One thing I found out is thai if you expect to keep your husband in line^you have to put the ring in his nose early. If you are going to expect him to be of any help around the castle, hand him a dish towel and tell 'him to start drying right after the wedding supper. "Sou can probably get a hired girl to do these things in Monaco, but husbands are apt to WOMEN I Dear Mr, Drabnick* a man of many interest* 6%, 8%, 10% ...» stay with you longer if the pay i right. s "I'm not making up my mind to stay till I see how your water heater works." Can't blame her. Any woman who's had wash water run cold would feel the same. But with automatic GAS water heaters, there's always enough for laundry, dishes, bathing and for house-cleaning. $peed is the secretl Gas water heaters are 3 times faster than non-flame water heaters.

They also line to leave caps off of tooth paste and soggy towels all over the bathroom. Husbands are much easier to train when they still have Stardust in their eyes, so right away point out th* clothes hangers ai.J the towel bars. Some habits can seem endearingly casual during the honeymoon but they get to be downright sloppy for the rest of your married life. If you start them out right, you save all sorts of cleaner's bills, and wear and tear on your nerves and back. I wish somebody had told me this when I was first married. * * * All of us have io keep an eye on the husband when we let hirh off the leash for a night out, but it seems to me, Grace, that you have kind of a unique problem. Monaco has long been known for its gambling establishments and they are what puts butter on the Rainers' bread and mink on your shoulders. Some evening you'll get a telephone call from your better-half. He'll say he's going to be a little late for supper, Irt the background will be a jukebox playing and the clink of coins and the sound of wheels turning Unless you are very sharp he's going to get away with all sorts of shenanigans for he comes equipped with the perfect excuse He can say he's down at the Casino checking receipts and tending to business! In your career as an actress you made love to such dreamboats as Gary Grant, Jimmy Stewart and Bill Holden. Imagine doing that and getting paid forrit, 'oo! No wonder it took a kingdom, some palaces and several lillion dollars to win you away. 3ut even such a lucky break as jeing kissed by Gary Grant cnn be a handicap if you start comparing your Old Man to the nemory of your screen lovers. Many wives have become all 'ouled up by thinking about the men they think they could have married an'd if you should happen o get sort of wistful about How iweet Jimmy was, you might ask his wife if he, like the Prince nclines to be grouchy in the morning. If it should turn out hat His Royal Highness has a errific habit of snoring, remem- er that for all you know, and I rust you don't know, Gary may nore also. And if the Prince ooks a little less than dashing .-ith a days' growth of beard, ii'.l might not be so smooth, ither, when he neglects to have. You haven't known this guy ou are going to rnarry very long, nd there are those who say it /ill be just another of those lollywood affairs and that we'll be hearing about your divorce after a while. I, for one, hope you What a difference Trust a telephone to get you help in a hurry. You can depend on this vital service whenever you need .It i. i whenever someone needs you.

What a bi£ difference telephone service makes . .. it'i the cheapest service yw bufi, will be different and stay married. Are you sure this is the one you want to spend the rest of your life with; and if so, how can you tell by just ".a few month's acquaintance and then being separated for much of the time by either a continent or an ocean? For that matter, how does any gal know for sure? If we really knew what we were getting into, Alma Pearson's marriage license book would have lots of blank pages. Yet an awful lot of us would agree that we'd do the same thing all over again if we had a chance to live our lives, a second time around. • • • According io ihe papers/ you do not plan to make any more movies.

E VERY NOW AND THEN, We Tim across someone who seems to think that 1956 cars do not offer anything really new—just a little face lifting from the year before. We won't try to speak for the automobile industry. But we certainly can speak for Buick. And let us announce in no uncertain terms—it's the newest thing on wheels. The Styling Is New Sure, it looks like a 'Buick. But it has a new V-prowed grille that says 1956 and no mistake. The hood's new—the fender ports are new—the sweepspear 15 new— and it all adds up to a new sweep- ahead look that ends in a sassy new slant \o the rear contours. But that, friends, is only the beginning. T/ie 1956 Oynqflow* is New It introduces what the engineers call "double regeneration"—which means a double- action take-off. It gives you new, split-second response in the first inch of pedal travel — phis tile 1 "switch the pitch" at full acceleration, which no one else has yet approached. Tfie Ride is New • To coil springs on all four wheels, a brawny X-braced frame, and torque-tube drive, the engineers have added deep-oil shock absorbers to give new softness, new buoyancy, new comfort, and a brand-new "sense of direction" handling response. ' The Power is New All 1956 Biiicks have new 322-cubic-jnch V8's—with record highs in power and compression — with unique new double "Y" manifolding to step up efficiency —vWth new carburetor "deicing" —and a host of other new features to make owning a Buick pure pleasure. The Thrill Is New ' And the surest way for you to find out how right we are,.is to sample a 1956 Buick yourself. As we said before, this is the best. Buick yet— by a'wide measure— and when you learn the prices we're quoting, you'll know why this Buick is one of the three best sellers in today's market. It takes a lot more than face lifting to produce such a winner as this. *.Vcii> Advanced Variable PltcJt Dt/nafloto l.i the only Dynaftow Hulck builds today.
