TO BE HANDLED WITH CARE
-Lady Psychologist Has. a Word to Say
as to the Necessary Training
That the hunband should be trained
and not broken is the firm belief of
Miss Anna List, the celebrated lady
psychologist, who vows she will never
marry while in love. Doctor List has
collected extensivo data in regard to
the establishing of dominant person
alities in the home. Most of the facts
she has obtained at first hand from
the undisputed possessors of doninant
"The husband," says Anna List, "in
common with other beasts of burden,

"Many wives ruin an otherwise sen
sible and obtrusive husband by trying
to break his spirit too soon. In the un
domesticated state the inexperienced
husband is naturally sportive and lib
erty loving, and his instincts all tend
to make him refractory and antagon
istic toward female supervision. At
tempts at justifiable coercion are, in
the early stages of matrimony, almost
sure to be met with a vicious stubborn
ness that is much more likely to grow
than to diminish.
"A wise mixture of cajolery, coax
ing, contempt, independence and per
sistent firmness seems to secure the
best results in training a husband.
Young wives should proceed slowly.
They should study the temperaments
of the men whose-natures they have
chosen to exploit. Firmness and per

ITALY'S TOURIST TRADE GONE
Nation Is Called Upon to Provide for
Loss of Receipts From
The tourist trade as a source of
national income and as a substitute for
taxation is of enormous value to Italy,
says the Nuova Antologia, Rome. In
deed, as a means of settling interna
tional obligations, it is almost indis
pensable for our-land. Hence, nothing
could be more unreasonable than to
let the hotel business become demor
%alized, as upon it will rest the task of
reviving the tourist trade.
This led -us to propose a year ago
that payment of the rental charge of
hotels should be postponed. a proposal
that was only adopted in part, pay
ment for half of these rentals being
adjourned until the end of the war,
interest at the rate of 5 per cent a
year to be charged In the meanwhile.
Now, however. in view of the pro
longatiga of. the war; it becomes nec
-' " asary to make similar provisions for
the remaining half of. the rent. If
we are unwilling to allow the manager
of a hotel to pay his entire rent in
promissory notes or ether instrumenta
of credit, a special fund should be es
tablished, if necessary, with state aid.
to finance that half of the rent hotel
keepers are now reqluired to pay while
the war lasts.
