C. L- E—I am 19 years old anti
have a darling baby boy 3 months
old- I am not married. I love the
father, a G. I., verymuch and I know
tlii he lovts his baby. We live
with his parents who are very kino
to uv 1 don't care for any other boy
and don’t want to make boy friend
1 only want the baby's father. Should
I wait and ope for im to get a div
orce and may marry trie or should l
seek other friends? He has been
separated from his wife a long lime
Ans: In your position as a mother
of this man’s d*Hd there is hardly no
alternative for you other than to re
main with his parents and hope for
the best. He's still a married mai.
and he must secure a divorce before
he can offer you marriage. Beai
this in mind, your conduct while he
is away will largely determine his
attitude toward marrying you when
he returns. I f you can maintain the
good will of his family, it will ccr- j
tainly go a long way in your favoi.
Live a quiet, modest life, helping his
parents in every way that you can as
well as prove to them that you have
the makings of a good wife for their
O- M. S.—We have a serious mat
ter confronting us at this time- My
sister is confined in the State hospit
al and her mind just isn't right. My
brother and 1 went down Sunday to
visit her asd she is just about like she
lias been every since she was strick
en. My brother wants to lake her
out and bring her home. Please tell
me what you think is best?
Ans: A decision to take your sis
ter cut of this institution would be a
mistake as it would deprive her oi
the expert professional care she is
receiving- If your sister Is to ever
get well mentally, it will be neces
sary for her to take these prolonged
treatments. You might discuss the
possibility of having your sister home
on a short visit with her doctor at
the state hospital and if he feds that
such a trip would not be detrimental
to her health, then make your plans
accordingly. But. do not remove her
from the hospital altogether
D. M. T.—I have been caring tor
a certain boy ten months. I have
learned to love him dearly and know
there isn’t anything in the world that
will, change my mind about him- Re
cently he came and asked rne to go
to the movies with him. Mother re
fused to let me go. The next day *
girl friend told me she saw him in
the show making love to another
girl Does he love me as much as I
Ans: The bov is in no position to
know whether he loves you or nor.
He attracts you. it is true, but since
you two have never dated this mut
ual feeling of admiration cannot be
classified as true love. Time will re
veal his thoughts. '
J- L- F.—I am with some people
that I have been working for about
two years. I am down in the base
ment and it isn’t warm enough lor
my babies- I pay $20 per month for
staying down there outside the little
work I do around the house and she
doesn’t pay any salary for what I do
for her. I wish to know if it would
be advisable for me to go to my
husband s autie to live or not ? I am
not satisfied here, You see I can't
work and look after my babies like
I should. If I have someone tc
watch them it wouldn’t be so hard
