rather cool. That is strictly frone
to our estimation. We wish to in
.form this cat that his girl can get
someone else just as quickly as he
can. She can pass you like a
train passing a tramp.

Pecple Must Wake Up To I

(Continued from page 1)
glad to give it our support. We
hope it will be a real step in the
direction of a better fiscal policy.
These are a few of the great is
sues to which the American peo
ple must give their immediate at
tention. Unless they do, the Am
erican way of life will soon be as
dead as a dodo.
The people and the country can
be rescued from these dangers by
the election of a Republican House
of Representatives in 1942.
There can be no hope from the
New Deal. They have had their
chance and failed.
With complete control of every
branch of Government, unlimited
power and money, they have failed
to rescue the country from emerg
ency. Their answer to every new
crisis is a request for more pow
er and more money until they havw
bought us to the brink of bank
ruptcy and possibly the loss of our
form of government.
There is a good deal of propa
ganda about adjournment of poli
tics. Well, I want to tell you
there have been no signs in Wash

Nearly every job with real au
thority and a salary is placed in
the hands of a New Dealer. There
are a few exceptions but if you
will look closely you will find these
exceptions are carefully checked.
The New Deal continues to use the
emergency as a means of fasten
ing its control upon the American
people. When they talk of ad
joining politics, they mean to elim
inate the opposition. They want
a one party system in America.
If this day ever arrives it will be

M. C. C.—My friend says she has
a gentleman she wants me to meet
and he has expressed his desire to
meet me. Should I put myself in
Ans: Why not....you should
meet as many different people as
you can. Go ahead and meet the
man.... he is keenly interested in
you from just seeing you.
W. R. —Recently I took out an
insurance policy on my husband
and he thinks that I should let it
go. Now I am paying it and I
feel that I should hold to it. Let
me know if I am right?
Ans: I for one, am a firm be
liever in insurance and it is an
investment. • • .you don’t have any-«
thing to lose. Keep the insurance
and say nothing more about it.
E. R.—My wife got so she likes
to go car riding, she goes and stays
out real late and sometimes don’t
come home all night. What is
the trouble with her? She tells
stories to me all the time and I
want her to tell the truth. I told
her I didn’t care if she went out
if she would tell me the truth.
What is she going to doi
Ans: Well she thinks she wants
to leave and make her home in
some other town for she doesn’t
care for married life. There is
very little that you can do in a
stuation of this kind-talk
things over with her and try to
come to a decision, but she seems
to have definitely made up her
mind about leaving. Let her go..
it won’t take many months to get
this idea out of her head for she
isn’t too fond of work and no other
man is going to provide the good
living that you have. The change
will straighten her out quicker
than anything else.
A. S. M.—This home my mother
left me is heavily mortgaged and
I just don’t know whether I should
pay off all this money or move,
now let me know how to go about
finding out about this place
Ans: Consult with some good
attorney there in your city and
let him check up on the property
thoroughly;, .he can nut the whole
business before your eyes and let
you see what must be paid out in
order to hold the place. If the
indebtness is too great-let it
slide and make the change that
you are contemplating right now.
M. L. T.—I am 21 years old liv
ing with my mother, a brother, and
a step-father who is very cruel
to us. There is a family quarrel
every week and I would like to
know if things will improve?
Ans: Find a good job for your
self and try boarding out if you
cannot possibly get along. When
your brother can become located
himself then your mother and her
husband will learn to understand
one another. Your step father is
in a rather embarrassing position
and so are you two young folks
but a change will take place when
you both get out and get on your
S. L. D.—The boy that I am in
love with wants me to marry him
and I wish to know if I should?
e is very nice to me on all occas
ions. Does he have any funds
saved up for this purpose?
Ans: He is like numerous other
young men his age-desperate
ly in love but no money to take the
final step. The boy is quite sin
cere in wanting to marry and will
be perfectly willing to begin sav
ing for this purpose. You too
should save your money to get
sorted housleUc^eepjng when you
AWP.—I would like to know will
I ever be able to start housekeep
ing and what’s the matter with
my husband he won’t work?
Ans, Take your husband m
hand and get out and find him a
job. Run ads in the paper.
also go with him to register at the
various agencies and it seems to
me that he will get a job in a few
weeks time. Yes, you will begin
housekeeping later on this year .
.. but first, get the kids suitable
clothes for the winter and then
make plans for keeping house.
