Though the wife is a blonde, when her husband gives his highest approval of another woman'.s looks she is invariably a brunette. She ask. "Do you like my hair this way?" He says, "Sure, it looks fine." without even glancing up from his paper to see if she is wearing a pony tail or the Italian cut. He talks as thougn his secretary i were a marvel because she can! handle the routine business oi the | office. Then he doesn't even say j "nice going" wh his wife has 18 to a buffet supper or strniphtens out a jam that Junior has gotten into at school. He asks for and takes her advice o:: a business matter and forgets she had anything- to do with his decision when it turns out to be a smart move.
