E. R. E.—I am in hopes that you
help me on my problem as it :s
mightv important to me. I met a
man about two months ago and he
) asaed me to mar.y h m. He’s a
gambler and I am a little afraid I
will b° made imhoo-w. P'^ase tell
me if he will change and what
i -hould 1 dr?
Ans Men who have gambling
in their blood .seldom if ever,
change. Therefore .you should not
marry him thinking that he can be
changed over night, lie has mon
ey in his pocke*£ today.he's
broke tomorrow. A happy home
cannot be built on such insecurity.
And at your age you want secur
ity of a home more than anything
else. It is fortunate that you arc
not no madly in love with him that
you are blind to his faults.
C. B.—I have a good paying job
but the work is hard and keeps me
tied down. For years I have had
a secret ambition to write songs
and I wonder if I were to give up
my job and put my whole time on
writing could I make a good liv
Ans: Hard work and regular
meals are far better than starving
to death trying to write songs. You
have several hours of leisure each
day and you can try your hand at
writing songs if you like. People
are at their best when they have
■ a hobby or enjoy some form of
. wiversion from their every day
duties. You haven’t reached the
professional stage in song writing.
Until you do, you shouldn’t give
up your job.
M. L. W.—I have been married
8 years and have 5 children. We
lived in 2 rooms in the house with
his mother all this time. He stall
ed running around and on top of
all this, he only half fed the child
ren, so I came back home to my
mother. She says she will keep
the children while I work. Did I
Ans: The change you have made
may prove to be what it will take
I to open his eyes. Go to work and
do the best that you can for your
children. Also insist that he con
tribute to their support. If and
when he gets out and finds you a
place of your own and agrees to
assume responsibility of you and
the children... .go to him.
E. L. M.—I’m 17 and in love with j
a boy 20. Things •sere going on I
swell until my mother saw him
kiss me and I responded. After he
j left, mother said a lot of mean
things and told me not to see him
any- - , I want t0 continue be
ing a tr-e tn • for I’ve b“"n clean
- -no^tK j merelv kissed
il’P b-v I don’t want to have to
-In' o”* to s“" him. D-1 you th’nk
moth-r w'll forgive and forget?
Please help me?
Ans: She will_but you must
tend ninke a -hab*t of ’•spoon
i-g” w!*b the boys. A g’rl grows
coarse and common if she engages
n po+t'"g PT-t;e- and your mother
is trying to show you the danger
of allowing your friends to kiss
you. Keep the fellows at a dist
ance_save your embraces for
your future husband.
D. X.—I read your column week
,ly for consolation. Six months ago
my husband went away and left
me and recently I have fallen *n
love with a man who is kind, con
siderate and a hard worker but ho
is uneducated. He’s very persis
tent about wanting to marry me.
I cannot in any way love my hus
'bnd. Should I divorce him and
marry this man? I am a teacher
and he promises to help my p‘ o
Ans: Before your husband left
you two agreed to a permanent
separation. Proceed with your
plans for a divorce. You admit
that you made a bad choice the
first time you married... .be cau
tious and don’t rush into marr
iag.e The man loves you. Can
you honestly say that you love
him whole-heartedly, that you can
take him as your husband and feel
proud of him, that you won’t lave
reatson to resent his not being ed
ucated? If so, then he’s the man
for you. But, it is too much for
you to expect him to keep up your
