M. r A SALT LAKE CITY PHYSICIAN, specializing in geriatrics, has recently advocated relaxation of our marriage laws to allow polygamy after age 60. He claims this would be a boon to elderly widows, who are much more numerous than men in that age bracket, and who because of their unwedded conditions lack adequate diets of both food and romance. As for men in single or widower status, the doctor cites the natural desire of the male' to diversify his amours, and suggests that new partnerships would automatically rekindle some of their urges. - o IT WILL BE QUITE A FEW YEARS until either Father or I are 60, but the way time flies, it wouldn't hurt a bit to start making our polygamy plans right now. After all, we are living In a prime area ideal for testing the expert's theories for Florida is noted for Us over-sixty population. And, according to the 1960 census, there were 4,451 widows and only 1,264 widowers in Sarasota county alone I The. ratio must be even more weighted toward widows by this time and by 1977 the situation is apt to be so drastic that they'll draft good husbands for the polygamy program whether or not their wives are still around I - o - ONE OF THE REASONS I think they'll have to draft guys like Father even If he isn't a widower is that I think that In spite of better diets, having three or four wives is going to be very hard on the male population. Those new partnerships the good expert says will be so rejuvenating for a while, may be the very things that bring the men to premature graves. It won't be so much the romantic activity that will be the undoing, I predict. It will be the hazard of living with a harem of women, all competing for their one-fourth of the attention and their hoped-for one-half of the finances. - o IF LEFT TO HIS OWN DEVICES, I doubt that Father would pick for his auxiliary wives any widows in his own age bracket. There are lots of attractive 60-year old dames, but they are far outnumbered, not to mention outweighed, by us gals with the, broad beams, fallen arches, upper plates, and corns that ache us when It's going to rain. Knowing how men are, and particularly Father, if he gets any latitude at all, he's going to prefer a flock of young chickens to go along with his old hen. I'm counting on his keeping me you understand, for I just can't . believe that our years of familiarity and our crop of mutual grandchildren will go for nothing. But if Father is drafted for the polygamy plan when he reaches age 60, I'm not going to let him sign up for it unless it says right in the contract that I get to pick the widows who are going to be his auxiliary wives I - o THE NUMBER ONE AUXILIARY WIFE can be a youngster of 40 to 45 for all I care. She can be a blonde, too, either natural or artificial and she can even be quite sexy looking I The thing I'll be looking for when I choose her will be that she is still working at a responsible, highly paid job. If we're going to have all those extra mouths to feed around here we're going to have to have some income besides Father's paycheck and auxiliary wives widow's pensions. - o THE SECOND AUXILIARY WIFE Pm going to choose for her neatness. I have her work all cut out for her. She'll start by tidying up the dresser drawers and systemizing and mothproofing the closets. Til turn over the messy job of defrosting the re- frlgerator to her and she can carry' out the garbage. She can see to It that Father's shoes are taken out of the living room each night and she can wash all the jalousy windows. I'll still do the cooking myself, but I plan to let her peel the potatoes and wash all the dishes. - o THE NUMBER THREE AUXILIARY WIFE is going to be chosen for her nagging ability. Men tend to resent being reminded all the time to have their hair cut, to take a bath, to go to the bank, put up the shelves, take the dog for her shots and all that stuff, but most of them simply wouldn't get much done if they didn't have a wife, to nag them. This may come as a surprise to Father, but all these years I really haven't liked to nag! So when we add number three auxiliary to our household she's going to do all the reminding and I don't care how nasty she gets. I plan to just sit around, smile sweetly and get famous for my good disposition. - o AS THE WIFE WITH THE greatest number of years of seniority,I shall still have my duties. I'll go fishing with Father and be his date when we eat out or go to the movies. I'll also keep some of the more intimate wifely duties exclusively in my department. Such as scratching Father's back, policy, I'm not going to tell a just where he itches I . o - And as a job security insurance single one of those other wives DURING THE WEEK OF MAY 22 through 28, people having birthdays Include Shirley Morck, Jean Taylor, Virginia Buchanan, Dick McGinnls, Kathleen McBrlde, Arnie Gerdis, 'Rick Post, L.
