The Problem “Pack a suitcase with comfortable clothes and a box with provisions, and put Kathleen Norris Says: Bell Syndicate.—VVNU Features. of Sally Kent them in the old car. Then say to him, ‘get in, we’re going placas,‘ and head west.” By KATHLEEN NORRIS "MY HUSBAND has 0 o m e h o m e s o changed, after two years in active service as a marine,” writes Sally Kent, “that I find myself for the first time in my life with a problem that is too difficult for me to solve. I wonder if other wom- en are facing like troubles, now that the war is over, and if you have helped them and can help me. “I am 31,” the letter goes on. “David is two years old- er. He was drafted in 1942, and left me with a baby girl of three and another baby com- ing. We were both anxious that he should do his share as a soldier, and I tried to do mine at home. We moved to my mother’s house, and there my son was born just two years ago. Mother keeps boarders; I had helped her all through my girlhood and took my old place now; planning meals, marketing, making beds, and superintending the changing personnel in the kitchen. “Mother has always prospered, and in crowded war times she pros- pered exceedingly. My weekly bud- get to David -—- a few lines anyway every day, and often pages were always cheerful, and snapshots of Di and Jimmy kept him in touch with their progress. This was for me—as for many wives—a lone— ly time, a time with anxious mo- ments, but a time of much deep happiness, too. Mother’s life has never been easy—she round this in- terval refreshing and delightful, and the children were wonderful. Dislikes Boarding-house. “David came home willing to ac- cept all this, but within a few days I knew something was wrong. and now everything is wrong. He doesn’t like living in a boarding-house, he thinks Diana is badly spoiled and he seems completely indifferent to the baby. Of course, the children did not know him, and when a dark, thin, nervous daddy was added to their little scheme, they didn't like it. “I try to make allowances for the war-worn nerves of a man who has known nothing 01 home life for more than two years; I try to keep things serene and cheerful, and of course it is understood that as soon as he resumes work and is able to sup- port it, we will have our own home again. “But this is not enough. He wants me to leave the children and go away with him. Where doesn’t seem to matter. He Wants to go West, to buy a farm, to pioneer in the Canadian north, to do anything ex- cept settle down here, realize how lucky he is to have a comfortable home, no immediate financial pres- sure, and a devoted wife. “Obviously, this is just what I can’t do. I'd like a change myself, I’m not in love with bedmaking and dusting. But you can’t pioneer with two small children as companions, and financially any such change would be a desperate chance. "We love each other: there isn’t any triangle complication; when we take long walks together, as we do in the evenings. there isn’t any quar- relllng or unpleasantness. But it all comes out to this; Davidwarlts me to throw away the security than built up so painfully and slowly in all these long months. I want him to return to normal—he is certainly not normal now. Please advise a Wom- an anxious to save her marriage, god the man she ldves, it she can." 0 My advice. Sally, is compromise. He doesn’t like boardinst UNSETTLED That strange and frighten- Iing change that comes over men after they have been in military service for two or three years is a great trial to their wives. Women who have been waiting for wear and anxious months to en , sud- denly find their dream of a happy future shattered. Here is her husband home at last, and for good, but he is so dif- ferent! He is not the man who said goodby so sweetly and sadly on that awful day when he left for overseas. No, he is not the some. He is moody and querulous, un- able or unwilling to fit into civilian life. Nothing pleases him. He is indifferent to his loving wife’s best eflorts. Often he has some outlandish scheme, like moving to some distant part of the country and trying a completely new busi- ness. The story in this issue con- cerns a returned soldier named David. He wants to leave their two children with someone, anyone, just so they are cared for, while he and Sally go West, to look for a farm. He also thinks about pioneering in the Canadian northwest. arming is completely new to him, but he wants to do al- most anything except to settle back to his old job in the old town. We American women will have to do a lot of compromising it we are to help our returning servicemen to re-adjust themselves to conditions that seem strangely smug, safe, self-satisfied to them, after the hor- rors and loneliness and abnormality of war. Head West in Car. Get someone to look after your babies, no matter what you have to pay her. Pack a suitcase with com— fortable clothes and a box with pro- visions. and put them in the old car. Then say to him, “get in, we are going places," and ‘head west. Years ago a nervous husband I knew got this treatment—my own husband, in fact—and before we had gone a hundred miles he was begin- ning the cure, quiet, amused, expec- tant, happy. We drove 6,000 miles, the most inexpensive travelling there is, except on foot. The most thrilling, for you may stop any- where, eat when you like, try any- thing. You’ll find your old companion be- side you sooner than you dream is possible. You find him rested, soothed and presently eager and alert again. You’ll talk plans, ex- plain away difficulties, share prob. lems. You‘ll agree that Diana is a little spoiled; that there is no place for a young couple like their own home; you’ll say the baby is exact ly like his dad. Give him a six-weeks break. Give yourself the same. November is beautiful travelling weather, and a marriage like yours is worth saving. Medical Care in Rural Areas ls Inadequate In the Journal of the American Medical Association, Dr. Rowntree, chief of the medical division or the selective service system writes: “Surveys 01-: the, health. situation among the rural isnulies in some of the states indicate that s large proportion oi farmers have poor health. that the facilities for health services are below normal require- ments and that there is a pitiful in- adequacy oi the care provided reg- ularly tor the lower income tarn- llies. An analysis of some of the sur- veys indicates that between one- come groups have no medical or dental care whatsoever. Of the 16,- 000 cases of serious illness reported by term families in Texas and Okla- homa. less than one-half had a doc- tor's care. Only one out of three births was attended by a physician." Because of the inadequacy in most rural counties of the public death rate at almost any age level is greater in rural areas than in urban centers.

Sprinkling sawdust from the woodyard over icy paths around the home prevents one from slip— ping and is better than sand for this purpose because it doesn’t stick to shoes and track into the house as badly as sand.
