tucjtloy, August 17, 1971 THE ttTHBRIDGE HERAID Changes in masculine taste make wife's shopping easier DALLAS, Tex. Wives who lake (heir husbands for grant- ed not only demonstrate their "built-in op'nions" on the sub- ject, but also make Chrisliv.as shopping more difficult. This is lire view of Edward Marcus, a department store executive here. Mr. Marcus asserts that when a wife thinks she "knows her husband too she be- lieves there's nothing lie wants and therefore nothing she can get him a? a gift." Yel when women begin to acknowledge thnt masculine tastes are changing, be adds, they'll find their Christmas shopping will "go much easier." "Years Mr. Marcus de- clares, "it was an awful lot harder to shop for but today they're beginning U> ac- quire "n e w plumage." This doesn't necessarily mean, lie says, that a man will want to "go way but that he does like to have "something that's a little bit different." In his choice of clothing, for example, lie may want colors thai are a little brighter, and look for fab- rics with much more pattern. y Ann Lander: DEAR ANN LANDERS: The woman neit door is ruining my health. Her husband has been in South America on busi- ness for three months. About four nights a week she en- tertains a man I know. My bedroom faces this woman's liv- ing room and she and that guy dance until 2 and in the morning. Every night I swear I won't look because I have to get up at a.m. But I can't resist the temptation and 1 am beat the nest day. Please print this letter so I can send it anonymously to the husband in South America. Maybe if he knew what was going on he'd come home and 1 could get my rest. Vision. DEAR PERFECT: Your vision might be great but you've got nose trouble. Draw your blinds end get some sleep be- fore you collapse. w. DEAR ANN LANDERS: 1 have a practical suggestion for that lady who was insulted because the hostess of the card party (in whose home she played three evenings a week) had a habit of handing her a package of garbage when she left and asked her lo drop it in tile container when she passed the alley. Since the girls do not play for money, only for fun, why not make the garbage the booby prize? The person with the low score has to drop it on the way home. This would be not only an incentive but it would make that certain woman feel like less of a garbage collector. Mr. From Plumfield. DEAR YOU: Thante for the suggestion. And now about your language, Lovey. "Garbage Collector" went out with buggy whips and corset stays. Today the title is "Sanitation Engineer." DEAR ANN LANDERS: I tried your "forgive and forget" routine and it didn't work. So I divorced the scoundrel and went back lo a fascinating career. The following year I met and mar- ried a bright interesting man. 1 have never felt more loved, more useful or happier. As [or Casanova, he is still going from one chick to another, drinking more and enjoying it less. So you see, Ann. your advice doesn't work for everyone. Self Liberated. DEAR LIB- I never said it did In the first place, you.' husband sounds like a four-door jerk. Not all husbands arc. In the second place, you had a fascinating career to return to. Not all women have. In the third place, you were able (o attract a bright, interesting man wlw would marry yon. Not all women can. Congratulations, Buttercup. Yon heat the odds. V DEAR AXN LANDERS: 1 am the mother of two girls, 12 and 14. I bad (o hide the paper again yesterday because of another one of your dirty columns. Why do you repeatedly Icll girls lhat they are under no obligation to tell their fiances about past sex experiences? Why not lell them instead to conduct themselves in such a way that they will not have to lie or refuse lo Ulk about the other men in their lives? Raising good girls these days is very difficult. You are not making it any easier. Parsons, Kan. DEAR PAH; Host girls who write about this problem have already made The Big Mislake. It's loo late to counsel them against it. A real man not demand a loyally oath. He is willing to accept a girl as she is. The fiance who insists on the names and numbers of all the players invariably uses the information against her after they are married even though he swears he won't. i Please send inquiries and requests io Landers Reader- mail Department, Chicago Sun Times-Daily News, 401 North Wabasli Chicago, 111 BOfill.

This kind of sentimentality has declined somewhat, he notes, and men today "want a little more dash a little more novelty." Another significant change is Hie fact that men are now using cosmetics such as cologne and skin finners and even wigs. "When I was a young Edward Marcus recalls, "y o u were a sissy lo wear any kind of c o I o g n e. But cologne is something lhat almost every man uears today." A TOUCH OF COLOR According to Mr. Marcus, his own wife doesn't seem to have "huilt-in opinion" about his preferences. When he recently j gave her a list of gift ideas for his birthday, be says, "she didn't happen to agree about any of tlicm and boughl me Fomelhing completely differ- ent." For one thing, she gave him a "darkish bright-red" robe, which he explains he never have thought of getting for himself. He'd been v.-earing a blue silk robe for .several years, and although he had never considered a red one, he declares, "I like if. I'm crazy about it." The unusual things a man likes now, Mr. Marcus concludes, "may some- times just come in a different color." The Neiman-Marcus depart- ment slore ir Dallas, which Ed- vvard Marcus beads, is known for its unusual Christmas gift catalogue. This year's version features for the 24-hour pleasure cruise on (he blue Caribbean that can accom- modate some 600 people. It costs For (he pessimist, it offers for more than half- a million dollars a complete- ly fitted out Noah's Ark includ- ing a French clief, Swedish masseur and German hair styl- ist, not lo mention a wide va- riety of animals. The ark will require a four-year waiting pe- riod to be built and stocked. And for the optimist, Neiman- Marcus can provide a live oak .rue, two feet high and ready for immediate at According to the catalogue, with proper care the tree 'could grow to 30 feet or more and make a wonderful tree- house for one's great-grandchil- dren."
