Husbands Get 'Charm School' Education Free of Charge A national magazine had an article, "I had My Wife Made Over," written by a husband whose overweight wife enrolled in a charm school and graduated a glamour girl. Unfortunately there aren't any charm schools for men whose wives would like to have them made over. . Here are a few ways in which a charm school would improve the average middle- aged husband: In looks: he.could probably stand to lose, a few pounds and trim down that waistline. In manners: He -could probably learn a lot about the duties of a good host, taking some responsibility for the family's social life, and being as willing to make himself charming to his wife's friends as J Ruth Mi!!ett she is to his. In conversation: He probably needs to be reminded that it is as important for him to help carry the dinner conversation at home as when having dinner with friends. And he might also leani with profit that if he is bound and determined to hide behind & newspaper at breakfast every morning he might at least offer his wife half of the paper in lieu of conversation. In personal habits: He might be surprised to learn that no woman alive considers it a privilege to pick up after a man once the honeymoon is over. Judging from the letters I receive a lot of wives would like to see their husbands made over. And if anybody ever starts a charm school for men, the list above should be included in the curriculum. But since there aren't as yet any charm schools for men, women will just have to go on as they always have, trying to make over their <"s™7 "~r» PRECIOUS IMAGE - Standing in a glass case in the Church of Ara Coeli, in Rome, Italy, is a life-sized figurine of the Christ child, considered one of the'most priceless items in the Eternal City. Carved from an olive tree taken from the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, the age- blackened statue is covered with jewelry and precious stones from all over the world, which have been donated by people who have had requests granted. The figure is placed in the center of the church for the holiday season. Old Sport The sport of greyhound racing is at least 1000 years older than horse racing originating In Egypt. The Egyptians raced their greyhounds in open' fields with a wild hare as quarry. husbands without any outside help. Trouble with this old-fashioned method is that husbands have a bad name for it. They call it nagging. It doesn't occur to them that they are getting a charm-school education free of charge.
