Helup! Helup! Ain't It Awful? Exchange: "Husbands are of three varieties—prizes, surprises and consolation prizes. Making a husband out of a man Is one of the highest plastic arts known to civilization. It requires science, sculpture, common sense, faith, hope and charity—especially charity. If you flatter a man it frightens him to death. If you permit him to make love to you, he gets tired of you in the end; if you don't, he gets tired of you in the beginning. If you believe all he tells you, he thinks you're a fool; if you don't, he thinks you're a cynic. If you join him in gayeties and approve of his smoking, he says you ore driving him crazy; and if you don't approve of Ins smoking and urge him to give up is gayeties, he says you are driving him to the devil. If you ura the clinging vine type, he doubts whether you have a brain; if you ore the modern, advanced, and independent type, he doubts whether you have a heart. If you are silly, lie iongs for an intelligent companion; if you are brilliant and intu'l- ectual, he longs for a playmate. If you are popular with other men, he is jealous; if you are not, he's sorry he married a wall flower. Such is man."
