MY NEW 1939 ASTROLOGY,
READINGS ARE READY—
L. L. S.—I have been working
for a beauty operator for about 3
month- but I don’t get anything
much out of it. Now I am plan
ning p'-t up a business of my
own mi l wonder if I will prosper?
An v. Yon must make the busi
ness pay. As long as you work
for i one else you won’t ever
get ahe d and you are only being
smart to want to get out and open
o place of your own. You are
quito capable of making a good
living for yourself.
L. R. P_Will my son and his
wifu marry again or will they suc
A ns: These two kids don't
know ’■ h»t, they want to do—ul
timo-h they do LOVE ONE AN
OTHER. It is indicated that they
will try marriage again within a
course of a few months.
J. M. M.—I am going with a
young man holding a position in
tho school which I attend and
someone reported it and I am anx
ious to know who it was?
Ans: Gossip will circulate a
round about, everyone and no one
in particular is to be blamed. My
sugg stion is that you be more
careful with your asociation with
tho young man in question—due
to tho fact that it isn’t entirely
tho thing for a teacher and pupil
of a school to ket p company.
O. A. I have been in love with
a girl for more than a year and
now she has caught me doing the
wrong thing with one of Ivr best
friends (lov ng her) and she has
declared that she don’t want me
anymore, and she has scorned me,
shamefully. What must 1 do to
make her love me again?
Ans: What can you expect
your girl friend to do—approve of
your little ‘petting party” with
her very best friend? You, young
man have cooked your own goose
and she isn't going to giv(. you n
half of chance to prove that you
were only kidding. She knows
good and darn well that you were
getting a ‘‘bang’’ out of loving her
frknd, and if you do it once there
is a possibility of it happening a
gain. She is through for good.
H. C.—I am only homo Thurs
day and Sunday afternoons and
really tho way my husband ignor
es me ait times gets my nerve*
down. Will my life go on like I
thi* always and it seems that!
whenever ho is working he acts
Ans: The whole trouble seems
24th Lake St.
to be that 'he has b en without yov
much that ho doesn’t npprec
to you when you are at home.
Try to arrange to get work r
'lit ; i cm sp nd more time
(each evening) with your husband
don't give up your present job
until you do. Being separated like
you are now—makes him feel
i i independent and less inter
ested in you. A e'hango is indie
:i to 1.
If. II. Is it fair to !ive with a
man and not be married to him?
H • \vorks but never gives me any-1
thing, only something to cat?
Ann: Living with a man with
out being married c rtainly isn't
the decent 'thing to do. This is
'ho ch f reason lie isn’t thought
ful or kind. Just as soon as you
should make a change and not g-1
back: in thin rut again- it will have
n tendency to queer all your chanc
er for r, happy marriage.
I’. C. H. I am giving up my
job that I have had six years and
planning to go to N w York. Is
this the thing to do?
Ans: Ordinarily I would say
no but with your training and
ability it shouldn’t be difficult for
you to get empployment anywhere
You have a nice sum of money
r.nvad and I hon stly feel you would
succeed by making the change.
Good luck to you.

I am very much afraid that In
my zeal for beauty I have somewhat
overlooked the romance angle of my
column. We feel as a rule that our
romances are something that are
our own to handle, either wisely or
foolishly, accordingly to the dictates
of our hearts. However, most of us
occasionally like to hear another’s
