DRINKING PARTY CREATES
PROBLEMS FOR MISINFORMED
I attended a party about a month
ago. Although we expected Lt to,
be a mild affair it turned out to1
bo every thing but that, with li
quor flowing like water. I have
chunk highballs before but have
always been able to control myself
unti’ thi- night when I found my
‘•rlf out on a automobile party
wl h two limy a and another girl,—
al1 of us exceeding the speeding
link". 1 am sr-e that this rievfr
would have happened had I been in
my right mind Since this happen
in'; I have learned from one of my
friends that this boy has a re
putation of having a social af
fliction. My friend has repeated
this story to me several times as
if trying to imp re m something
rn my mind. It is awful to be so
dumb, but it has just dawned on
in.) that thi; affliction might have |
been contracted by me, and as a
re.suit I am driven to desperation. 1
1 d not have enough money to
wi i a doctor. My parents think
I am a perfect child and would
have fits if they knew I was
guilty on any count. And of course
I wouldn’t think of discussing the
matter with the boy.
Here we have a young lady
whose well intending, if not well
informed, parents have brought up
in apparent ignorance of the many
pitfalls which endanger the lives
of youngsters growing into ma
turity. A sensible and frank ex
planation of the many natural cur
iosities which form in the minds of
young ones would help greatly in;
preventing broken lives and faith
in later years. It is perfectly a!-!
right to think ones children per )
feet and devoid of all evil, but it
is more secure to shelter them
with the proper knowledge.
As for you Miss D. W. you admit
that you are guilty on at lease
“one count." Dont make it another
by not taking matters up imme
diately with your parents and con
sulting a competent physician. We
hope for the sake of all concern
ed that there isn’t anything Wrong
but this is unlikely. Immediate at
tention is imperative for ills of this
typo or they will cause you more
misery than just embarrasinent.
Your .physician will explain' this i
pioro- fully. As for becoming in-,
toxicated there is nftver any ex
cuse for that. A healthful body
needs no artificial stimulant in
order to bring out the personality.
As for the boy who knowingly
exposes unsuspecting girls
to his miseries he should be handl
ed by the proper authorities. How
ever, this involves action which is
usually dist-a teful. Therefore the
only safe avenue is to take no
