Miss Sara Beatrice Elkinn Osceola Couple Honored at Dinner OSCEOLA — Mr. and Mrs. Ben F. Butler, Sr., were entertained at a surprise dinner-dance last night at the Semmole Club, when their sons, Ben Butler, Jr., and their wives were hosts and hostesses. The occasion was the 35th anniversary of the Butlers. Sixty friends of the couple were in the club room when the honored guests arrived, presumably for a quiet family dinner. A wedding cake topped by a bride and groom and flanked by silver candlelabra, centered the banquet table. The buffet table was decorated in gladioli ranging in shade from pale to deep coral. Summer flowers i n pastel shades were used throughout the rooms. Dancing through the evening was to the music of Willie Bloom. Out-of-town guests were Mr. and Mrs. Middleton Sims of Morrilton, Ark., and Mr. and Mrs. Charles Rose of Roseland. * Silver gifts were presented to the couple. Application of Foresight Ahead Of Time Means Happier Marriage Kibitzer Club Entertained Mrs. Alex Curtis was hostess at the home of her mother. Mrs. Charles Rose, yesterday in Roseland,' when she entertained members and guest* of the Kibitzer Club. Attending with the members were Mrs. Rube Carson and Mrs. Rose. A dessert course was served preceding the games of bridge. Mrs. Charles Afflick. Jr., won high score, with second going to Mrs. J. M. Williams, Jr. Wonderfully Versatile "If anything ever happens to me, I know exactly what Jim's second wife will be like," a young married woman said when the talk at the bridge table turned to husbands. It's a wise woman who does know the kind of woman her husband would choose if he married a sec-j ond time. ! It's an even wiser woman who puts that knowledge to use. to lighten her own attitude toward life. If a woman is sure oer husband would never pick a "good manager" a second time, maybe it is time for the first wife to quit penny pinching. If a wife thinks her husband would look for a businesslike, capable girl if he ever married again, If a wife figures mat her husband maybe * he s * ou } d take his Protests ... & . . ... acrainst. hpr flierhfv nttitiirio tnvvarH would be a sucker for any girl who would tell him how wonderful he is. maybe the wife ought to be feeding his ego a more substantial diet. If she figures lits next w'ife would be a helpless little creature, maybe the wife shouldn't be quite so proud of her own independent spirit. If it is wife number one's guess that wife number two would be a gay - hearted, laughing creature, maybe wife number one could stand against her flighty attitude toward living a little more seriously. If a wife really thinks she knows what kind of wife her husband would choose if he ever again found himself in the marriage market, it Is probably because she knows full well in what ways she has failed And if she knows that, it isn't very bright of her not to try to be that kind of wife. 2 Sides Given In Case of the Tired Husband Is there any truth to the charge, made by a male reader who says| mbers and three guests.

Prom here on until middle age. he wonders if he shouldn't get a job as a stevedore, ditch digger or furniture mover so he can come home at night dog tired from physical labor to match her weariness. That may be how it looks to a man. THE WIFE'S SIDE But here is how it looks to his wife: Sure he has been working hard all day, but so has she. So why should he take to his easy chair, ignoring the work still to be done and the demands of the children? .After all, his wife gets dinner, washes the dishes, oversee the children's baths, gets them to bed and then straightens up the living room before getting to sit down and take a breather. It seems to the wife that there's something a little unfair in that setup. As for help with the children, when a wife asks her husband to fidences. They always turn to Mama, because nobody ever tells them Mama is too tired to be bothered. Maybe women don't always understand the problems connected with earning a living for a family. But men don't always understand how difficult it is to be the Mama in a family where the Papa is too weary from making business decisions to be of any help around the house.
