(Poundstone Studio Photo) ONE OF MY FAVORITE COLUMNISTS, Hal Boyle wrote recently, "The biggest puzzle to a husband is his own wife. She's the greatest mystery of his lifetime, as much of an enigma on their 50th wedding anniversary as on the day she married him." He then went on with a few "whys" illustrating his premise. - o - I AM VERY GLAD MR. BOYLE thinks wives are mysterious, because that way we may gain a little unearned glamour. But when it comes to finding a puzzle, a gal doesn't have to look any further than her own husband to find a giant- sized enigma. An ordinary husband isn't very mysterious to any woman unless she happens to be married to him herself. It's fairly easy to figure out the other girls' husbands. It's only our own husband that keeps us guessing. IP I WERE TO TAKE AN informal poll of wives, asking "What puzzles you most about your husband ?", I bet I'd come up with some of these : - o - "WHY HE'LL NEVER STOP TO ask for directions when we're on a trip, no matter how hopelessly we are lost. He'd rather go 150 miles out of his way rather than ask if we are on the right road. Or he'll insist that the six year old road map just has to be right in spite of the little woman telling him about a sign she saw three miles back. - o "WHY A $29.50 FISHING OUTFIT for him is a necessity while a $10.95 dress for me is an extravagance." "HOW HE CAN POSSIBLY watch a football game on TV and listen to a radio report of a baseball game at the same time and still know what is going on in both places." - o - "WHY HE'LL NEVER TAKE ANYTHING back to the store when he finds the quality isn't what he meant to buy. He just crosses that particular firm off his list of places to buy without giving them a chance to make it right." "WHY HE COMPLAINS BECAUSE I left out the spoon in his lunch bucket today. He knows I'll put in two spoons tomorrow." - o - "WHY HE'LL SCREAM ABOUT THE COST on a grocery list that includes flour, sugar, shortening, hamburger and coffee, and the next minute asks why I don't have anchovies, herring in sour cream, and a couple of fancy cheeses for snacks in the house more often." "WHY HE'LL SAY MY FRIEND WHO just went blonde via the bottle looks real neat and then laughs himself sick if I suggest touching the grey in my own hair." - o - "WHY HE'LL PAY $1.75 TO HAVE his own hair cut every three weeks and yell if I spend $10 on a permanent twice a year." "WHY HE'LL WHISTLE UNDER HIS BREATH at a bikini-clad gal on the beach and then have a fit if I wear anything more naked than a pair of Bermuda shorts in public." "WHY, AFTER I'VE SPENT ALL day ironing and mending he'll want to wear the only shirt that isn't pressed or lacks a button." - o - "WHY HE MAKES DEROGATORY REMARKS about my meat loaf and then when we go out and the hostess serves the very same dish from the very same recipe, he simply raves about it." "WHY HE INSISTS I WRITE all the letters from our family, even to his own parents and sisters and brothers and then wonders why he doesn't get more mail addressed to him personally." - o - "WHY HE COMPLAINS SO MUCH just because I clip coupons and news items out of the newspaper before he's read it. Why he makes a federal case out of it just because I've wrapped the garbage in the sports section." YES, MYSTERIOUS ARE THE WAYS of husbands. But one thing puzzles me most, and I think many wives will agree with me. Haw come my husband married me in the first place when he was having it so good as a bachelor ? - o - THIS WEEKEND WE WILL HAVE to miss ajiother wedding of a girl whom we watched grow up - Kendra Seely who was kind of a third daughter at our house and another sister to Mary Ann. But this time I'm doing better for I did get to see the wedding finery — the bride's gown and the attendants'— when we were in Algona. Kendra isn't changing her name at all for her bridegroom is Keith Seely of Whittemore. What's more both mothers of the couple the young couple. are named Helen Seely! Best wishes to - o - DURING THE WEEK OF SEPT. 4 through 10 birthdays include those of Carol Gotten, Rachel Yungeberg, Hazel Lusby, Bernice Holt, Fern Specht, Bill Specht, Arlene Knoll, Joyce Woods, Noma Buchanan, Inez Wolfe, Roger Keith, Barbara Bartlett Seller, Sharon Sundet, Maynard Miller, Jeff Stephenson, Maureen Ruhnke, Marcy Diamond, Tom Carlson, Philip Miller, Bob Hardy, W.

Mr. and Mrs. Les Kenyon, Mr. and, Mrs. Verle Elmore, Mr. and Mrs. L. W. Smith, Dr. and Mrs . Robert Horton, Mr. and Mrs. Gene Furst and Mr. and Mrs. Bill Detrick have wedding anniversaries. - o - THIS WEEK'S RECIPE IS FOR Cucumber Relish. I haven't been able to get any fresh cukes down here for canning and how I miss making my own pickles and relishes. You'll probably have better luck. 5 cups ground cucumbers 3 cups celery, chopped 3 green peppers, chopped 3 red peppers, chopped 3/4 cup coarse salt 3 cups vinegar 3 cups sugar 2 tbsp. celery seed Add salt to chopped vegetable. Let stand overnight. Drain well next morning. Bring to boil the vinegar, sugar, mustard seed and celery seed. Add vegetables, boil 10 minutes or until vegetables are done. Seal in sterilized jars. Makes 6 pints.
