Dealing with Slacker Husbands
What shall a woman do with a hus
band who in these precarious days re
fuses to eat what is set before him
and ask no questions? Miss Mary
Archer, addressing a housewives
league at Reading, proposes a item
remedy for any "slacker" who will
not cheerfully help his wife econo
mize. Let him starve, she says. She
even hints at harsher measures. "The
high prices of food are due to the
fact that we have some American
hogs," she explains, "and we want to
put a rope (.round their necks and
hang them." This is a short way with
husbands, indeed. None, it is sate to
say, ' would go on grumbling about
his food if this fate were in store for
him. But most men will not reauire
such strenuous persuasion. "Rule a
Wife and Have a Wife" might do for
ine tine oi a popular piay in trie oc
nighted eighteenth century, but it
would never pass muster now. Nor
has that "outlandish" proberb, "If the
husband be not at home, there is no
body." anv longer currency. It is
only important to know if the wife be
