It is just about time for someone
to remove the growing impression
that the ideal marriage is a species
of glorified strip-tease act. Marriage
as an institution has taken many a
beating, in the long course of his-
tory; right now it is taking a worse
kicking around from its friends than
its enemies ever tried to hand it.
Just recently, for instance, a musi-
cal comedy queen announced that
chorus girls make the best wives.
Why ' Iieacau.se they are alwayiS ileal, |
trim and seductive: their hair is
aiv.ays waved and their noses
•'•iway.. powdered; and their
never, never show.
Shortly before that, we had a na-
tional picture magazine offering a
series of photos designed to show
I .vivos how to disr^oe without shock-
ing friend husband's ostlvtl
b.lities, the pictures being posed by
some blond esthete from a burlesque
And, paving the way for these de-
monstrations, we have had whole
reams oi advice in the women's mag-
./.ines, lovi lorn columns, and sirnilai
-pots, all piping in the same tune. If
your husband leaves you, si art

To give away only what you can-
not use is the worst form of charity.
