Girl At Home
You Love Her
By RUTH MILLETT
Wives have been impressed
with the fact that the kind of let
ters they write their service men
will have a lot to do with the
way their mar

That is true,

Here are a
few rules a serv
ice man might
keep in mind Rntk Millett
when he is writing a letter to his
wife or to the girl he plans to
marry at the war’s end:
Don”t fill your letters complete
ly with the things you are doing
right now, experiences she can’t
share with you. Talk some of the
experiences the two of you have
shared in the past.
Don’t completely ignore the fu
ture. She’ll feel more secure if in
your letters you talk of your plans
and your hopes for “after the
Don’t write about the swell time
you had at a dance last night un
less you want her to wonder if she
is being a dope for substituting
movies with the girls for the dates
she could have.
Never write, “If I get through
this all right” or “If I come back.”
If she loves you those are phrases
she won’t let herself think. Don’t
force them on her.
SHOW YOUR INTEREST
Don’t give the impression that
you have shed the feeling of be
ing married. That is easy io do,
especially if you write only of
yourself and your doings wnnoui
stopping to express your interest
and concern with her life.
Occasionally when you speak
of your newly-made friends, try
to share them with her by such
inclusive phrases as ‘‘I think you’d
like Joe” or I wish you could hear
him tell such-and-such a story.”
Let her know what her letters
means to you and ask her to tell
you more about some of the things
she mentions casually.
But more important than any
thing else—keep telling her that
you love her. This is no time to
play the strong, silent man role.
The strong silent type has to be
on hand to be effective.
