___________ Triu Spplcmbtr 30, 1971 THE tCTHBRIDGE HERALD 23 Executive wives on the way out By DEH WEfiEMYKU NEW YORK (AP) The executive wife, stereotyped as llie pcrfnci riostcss who shuns controversy, sees no corpo- rate wrong, charms lior hus- band's boss and follows her Bpouse without complaint from job to job. may be on the way to extinction. There's still plenty o[ evi- dence that company attitudes about the corporate wife ha- ven't been uprooted, but there are small bul unmistakable signs of change. A management consultant reports that companies aren't screening wives so carefully as they once did when they look over a prospective new executive. A personnel man who still does such interviews says he's getting used to hav- ing wives ask him point- ed questions about how the company is carrying out its social responsibilities Anotli- reports men turning down transfers because their wives don't wanl lo give up their own jobs. Dr. Richard Beckhard, a management consultant and lecturer at the Sloan School of Business at the Massachu- setts Institute of Technology, offered this explanation of What has happened to the ex- ecutive wife: "Companies don't have the kind o[ control they used to over Etaff. Company loyalties have changed. Specialists are more loyal to their specialty than to Company A or Com- pany B." Some of the changes are being forced by circum- stances; it's difficult to enter- tain an out-of-town business client at. home when you live GO miles out in the suburbs. Beckhard also says judging the wile has begun to be ques- tioned as an invasion of pri- vacy by a few influential companies, while at the same time the wife's wishes are be- ing given more attention. Donald Sweet, director of I employment for the Celanese Corp., (i textile manufacturer, has refused to interview wives before making a deci- sion on the husband. However, in recent years he had begun inviting the wife to a final interview session because he wants her to have the oppor- tunity to ask questions abnut the place where she will be living. "If a guy has a wife who is four-root-four and weighs 400 pounds, that's his Sweet ssid.

ANN [ANDERS: 1 was very disappointed when you agreed with The Other Woman who signed herself "Secure In Key Biscayne." You even wished her luck. It was a beau- tiful opportunity for you to enlighten her, as well as millions of oilier readers who spout high-sounding platitudes about the "indestructibility" of "solid" marriages. P was victimized by The Oilier Woman who wormed her way into rr.y husband's life, sncl 1 have never wished her any bad luck She succeeded in getting him and that's bad luck enough foi- anybody. My husband was ihe perfect gentleman in public and a foul-mouthed, sewer-minded liar at home. (You call them "House Devils And Street I agree with you when you say no man can be wooed away against his will. My husband was ripe and ready for the picking. Why? What was matter with me? 1 was something he already had, and whatever he had he didn't want. 1 don't know how lie and "Poopsie" are getting along, but I can guess. Every woman who starts to go with a mar- ried man and decides she wants to marry !iim should keep one thing in mind- Her lover was half of tht learn that made up that rotten marriage and :-he might be getting the worse half. Been There Also DEAR BEEN: Thanks for a good leller I wish you luck, too and I mean it. Nothing is so obvious in this life as the fact that there are two sides 10 every question. Sometimes three. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am bothered by a problem which T am sure is a continual source of conflict for many divorced women with small children. When I first began dating, several men offered to pay my babysitter. I would not allow it because 1 had a good Job and made more money lhan most of the men who asked me out. 1 lest my job three months ago. My financial situation isn't what it used (o be. These past several weeks I hinted to a couple of men who seemed very eager to dale me, that it would be nice if they paid my sitter. They did not re- spond. Finally I came out and asked Mr. Z if he would mind paying my sitter when he drove her home. He agreed, but in such a cloddish manner lhat 1 felt like a beggar. Mr. X told me straight out that he didn't feel my siiter was his responsibility, and that I should not have asked him .to pay her. Now I am sour on both of these jokers and think I'd rather stay liome. If a fellow really wants lo lake a girl out, isn't the sitter part of the date? I aw-ait your nationally sought opinion. Bellingbam, Washington DEAH BELL: A man who asks a woman out is imder no obligation to pay her sitter. He did not hire her, she does not work for him, and it should not be considered part of the date. Sorry I couldn't give you IJie answer you were after, but fair is fair. The Southern Alberta Writ- ers' Workshop, which was lo have been held Saturday, is postponed until further notice. Social club allows no feoy.s no screaming CUELPII, Ont. (OP) Cuelph's social register of clubs and organizations has had a re- cent addition, the exclusive Five-E group. Its nine-year-old name noi the new organization is "dedicated to helping others and solving mysteries, and we meet in this club house made of old packing cases." She and four friends liuill their club room from discarded cartons and posted a strict set of rules at the door. "No boys allowed; no scream- ink in or out of club; keep neat at all times; do not knock the clubhouse down; no one else lo come in club house except ten- ants; no fights; no one 10 sleep inside unless it is warm or mother says so; obey all rules: gt through one door only."
