Northweit Arkansas TIMES, Friday, Oct. 75, 1974 FAYITTEVILLE, ARKANSAS ^^^^^^ Jack Benney Leaves Hospital LOS ANGELES CAP) -- Comedian Jack Benny walked put of Cpdars of Lebanon Hospital Thursday with the observation that his illness appears to have been nothing more than a stomach ache. Benny said he felt fine -- but moro like 49 years old than his perennial 33. The 80-year-old entertainer became ill in Dallas before he was to appear at a medical benefit performance. He was fjown to Los Angeles Sunday and entered the hospital hero HELEN HELP US By HELEN AND SUE BOTTEL Wedding Tradition Sparks Questions Way down yonder in New Orleans That's Where You'll Be Saturday Night at The Farmer's Daughter Jambalaya--lobster pie, french onion soup, hard rolls; french pastry One Seating Sat. at 7:30 p.m. Then back to down home cooking for Sunday brunch Turkey Dressing and Shrimp Creole Johnson Road between Bypass and Township 521-8686 Rap: I wonder how many people -- females especially -- would .jo for a traditional big wedding f they kne\y how all these traditions started? Almost all our marriage customs are based on man being boss, woman being ·owned," first by her father .hen by her husband. We all know the dowry (now evolved into the bridal shower) 3cgan because a man had to get rid of his (useless) daughters, so offered prospective hus- lands bribes of livestock, money, whatever he had on land. If Pop was wealthy, he celebrated his relief at finally disposing of his female child with a fancy wedding at which he "gave her away." The poor often got stuck with unmarried daughters, but they had an out: they sold them as slaves. According to the National Geographic Society, wedding rings evolve in the ancient East from huge bands the bride had to wear around her ankles, wrists, and even her waist as- symbolic fetters befitting her role as her husband's servant and property. She wore the wedding ring, later on, but always on the left hand as the right hand stood for power and authority, rights belonging only to her husband. Tossing a shoe after newlyweds survives in part from the time when the bride's family gave their son-in-law a sandal to denote transfer of chattel guess who? Perhaps the "best man' dates back to prehistoric times when the bridegroom needed a strong-armed helper to capture his woman. Kidnapping a mate, even from another "husband." was accepted practice in medieval days. . And to this day, the man walks down the aisle with his ''woman" on the left, presumably so his sword arm will be free to fight off thwarted suitors. The National Geographic Society also reports bridesmaids came into fashion to protect their charge against possi- ble overtures by the free-wheeling best man. Rice (wheat, nuts, etc.) were originally fertility symbols, thrown at newlyweds to inspire a "ripening" to come. Carrying the bride across the threshold? In Roman days, this demonstrated the authority anc mastership of man, the lord of all his possessions. With cavemen, it might have been the only way to get the capturec bride inside her new home! I-Researcher Researcher: Very interesting. And here's another questioner of tradition: SUGAR PROFITS OUT OF SIGHT By The Associated Press Great Western United Corp. suys soaring sugar prices fueled a 1,200 per cciil j u m p in the corporation's after-tax prof its during the third quarter of tins year. Net income for Hie three month period ended Sept. 30 in creased to $20,96 million, or $9.23 a share. That compares with $1.6 million, or 3 cents a share, earned in the same peri otherwise "assist." It isn't al one-sided. · Dear H.F.: Sue Rap: I'm not a lib fanatic, hut I'd like to know why the groom's father can't help pay for the wedding. I asked Dad and he said, "The groom will support the bride all their married lives, so . he (or his father) shouldn't have to spring for getting him hooked." That's a chauvinistic answer'! Most women work after marriage. They more than pull their own weight. Why shouldn' wedding costs be split down the middle? -- Harrassed Fiancee Dear H.: You're more traditional than you think: I see you wroti "groom's father," rather than "father and mother."

The corporation is he parent f i r m of Great Western Sugar Co., . t h e nation's argest beet sugar processor, The twelve-fold Increase In real Western Unitcd's profits was generated by sales that doubled from $91.5 million last year to $180 million. In another development in the sugar industry Wednesday, SuCrest Corp.'s sweetener division said it will raise its wholesale price for industrial sugar by $4.05 per hundred pounds, effective at the close of busi ness Friday. The increase will apply to the Baltimore-Washington, New York-Philadelphia and mid-Cen Inil regions. At Great Western's Dcnvei headquarters, board Chairman Robert. G. Everett credited th sharp boost in earnings to the continuing high level of suga prices. In slightly more tluin a year the supermarket price of a five pound bag of sugar has leape from 79 cents to as much a 2.50 In some parls of the noon.
