Not that we are trying to put
anyone in the dozens or anything
like that but it seems that the mo

than a Bible or something more
"helpful. Columns are strictly for
the cats and chics to read to a
muse themselves. Not that we ob

should not take things that appear
in Jive Columns so serious. It
is all in fun.

overcome and the only way your

help him. He loves you and does
not -want anyone else to notice

problem a while and try desperate

Oh how happy it makes me.
To know what joy it brings.

I have chosen to write about a
subject I believe is of vital impor
tance to all of the young boys and
girls: I believe what I have chos
en to write about is a subject that
could be talked about intelligently.
I hope you young people will read
the next article and think through
what I have endeavored to convey.
GIRL AND BOY
I believe when a boy and girl
think they are really in love, then
is the time to consider your rom
ance as a happy companionship.
The boy and girl should confide in
each other. A girl shouldn’t just
like a boy for the money he spends
on her. She should love him for
what he is. A girl shouldn’t just
love a boy for just the presents he
brings her. She should consider
him as a human being, someone to
trust, have faith and depend on.
A boy and girl should confide in
each other. By that I don’t mean
to tell each other all of his or her
business. But I do mean they
should confide in each other or
talk over the problems that face
them, in this way, they will over
come the numerous problems that
come the numerous obstacles that
confront them. A boy and girl
should discuss the problems that
come up or the problems they have
to meet or solve at school. A boy
and girl should discuss the prob
lems that face them as they work.
Another problem that should be
discussed intelligently between the
boy and girl is sex relationship
and that is of vital importance to
all of the young people. If these
problems are figured out and dis
cussed the boy and girl without a
doubt, will receive help and use
ful information from each otn3r.
I hope you boys and girls now
going together and anticipate c
rying on your romance will nave
little conversations with each oth
er about, school work, economics,
sex relationship and manenrs.
These subjects can be talked a
bout over using the best language.
Do not stoop to such low levels,
and use profane terms in discus
cions that might arise between
you and the girl friend or you and
the boy friend. Success to you

HOW OLD ARE YOU? Not by th* calendar but
by your posture! Do you realise we never begin
to think of women a* old until they slump ... until
their shoulder* sag forward, their chests cave in.
their abdomens push out and their waistlines
spread? Prove this for yourself by studying your
friends. Compare the way they manage their bodies
with the way a straight, young girl holds herself.
Don t make the mistake of selecting just any young
girl as the perfect example, however. Far too many
youngsters have the same fault and. viewed from
the rear, many of them appear to be years older
than they are.
In addition to the healthful advantages of carry
ing the body properly, a youthful bouyancy of
spirit is reflected in all body movements. One’s
r actions become graceful, alive, interesting snd
appealing instead of sagging into old-age lines of
| failure and despair. And age, failure and despair
are what a sagging body indicates to all who see it.
The way you walk, the way you stand, the way
you sit . all brand you as aged and decrepit or
young and vital. One basic rule of posture must be
learned first. For the present, forget all else about
posture except practicing this rule.
Keep your tummy pulled in! No matter how
over-weight you may be ... no matter how long
those muscles have sagged . . get to work on them
now. PLLL THEM IN . . . pull them back toward
your spine. As you do this, the chest is raised, the
shoulders pulled back, the head posed correctly on
the neck, the waistline slimmed down All these
benefits are steps toward a youthful, bouyant figure *

The entire experiment will do this
for you... it will cause you to smile
at yourself. And rather than worry
lines and wrinkles, you’ll develop
laugh-lines — happiness lines which
add to beauty!
If lines already are beginning to
appear around eyes or mouth, a
good cream, especially made for the
purpose, may help you. Obtain such
a cream and massage it gently into
your skin. Do this twice each day.
Poor eyesight can be causing you
