My dear friends this is a new
column which will be writen (I
hope each week. .) This will not
be exactly a gossip column. In
this column we are going to try
and discuss the problems that face
the parents in raising teen-age
boys and girls. We will bring
to you the problems that face the
young men and women in .heir
romantic affairs. For instance—
we will choose a subject then we
will ask parents what they th.nk
about that subject. Then we will
print what you think about it. In
this way we hope to bring about a
friendlier relationship between the
parents and the teen age boys and
girls. We hope to bring about a
more understainding relationship
between a boy and a girl. This
column will also have fashion not
es about what people are wearing
and a very little gossip. We are
not going to drag people, or call
them drags, because we are net
authorities on who is a drag and
who isn’t. We want to write,
things that are friendly not mean,
because in writing columns it is
easy to make enemies —that isn’t
what I want to do. il will endeav- I
or to make friends. Next weex I
will write what your parents think
about necking. What you think
about necking. So please take a
minute or two to read this column.
