F. O. Box 11 Atlanta I. Georgia
D A H—I have tried with all my
power to use my head and do
what is right, but I am afraid to
trust myself The boy friend I go
with now makes fun of me be
cause I don't allow him to say
ugly words and make dirty re
marks in my presence. He refers
to me as being goody-goody. This;
hurts me very much. Should I give
in to this boy or stay as I am. My
girl friends just snatch my boy
friends away when they get ready
Ans: The boyfriend you have
now is on the fart side He thinks
it is smart and big time to talk
fresh. You would not be losing a
thing to have one of your girl
friends put the snatch on him. Be
sweet and friendly to all the boys
but don’t give in to any of them.
You can be a good sport and still
draw the line when it comes to
going too far.
D M F I have ‘missed’. Th#
last time was March 4th. I don't
think I am pregnant because I
am the same as I was before. I
am not getting fat and don't feel
mad I am very anxious to know
what in wrong. Am I changing life
or am I too young?
Ans: Visit your family doctor
and let him examine you. I think
you'll find that you are with child

again. Yes, you are entirely too
young at 35 to be going through
the change of life.
ESM I worked for a man last
year and some this year. He wants
to build me a house on his place.
Should I accept his offer or not?
Ans: If you accept his offer
you will be more or less obliga
ting yourself to him. At your age
this might not be the wise thing
to do. You are happy living there
with your sister for she is a com
fort and you enjoy each others
company. Talk this over with your
sister before agreeing to the pro
position The main question is—
will you be happy living alone
away from your sister? I don’t..
believe you will.
E H—I have had trouble since
my husband came out of the navy.
He says he loves me but he stays
with another woman and he asked,
me to wait a little longer for us
to be together. Would I be happv
or should I leave town. How much
lo'ger should I wait?
Ans: You have waited entirely
too long now. Your husband is be
ing selfish and unreasonable in his
actions. You were true and faith
ful to him. while he was in the
service, which is all a good wife
could do. Let him make a definite
choice now and forevermore. Ei
ther he oomes home and quits this
other woman for good, .or you
quit him. You are too young a
woman to let yurself be impsed
upon in this fashion.
I B S—I want you to tell me
why does my husband act so very
strange ? He seems to be very ner
vous. We haven't lived together in
7 years but he comes to see me
and gives me money. He keeps me
worried I feel sorry for him. He
is upset over something.
Ans: See if you can’t talk your
husband into going with you to
visit a physician.. preferably a
psychiatrist. A psychiatrist is a
doctor who diagnoses nervous dis
orders. He definitely needs treat
ment and the longer he puts off
taking action the more difficult it
will be to overcome this condition.
L B G—I am a girl of 21. I have
been going with A L H for about
three years. He tells me he loves
me. In April I met FHE. he has
been in the army and he tells me
that he loves me. Then there is PE
who is about 25 miles from my
home town. He comes to see me
every Sunday and tells me he is
in love with me. Which one must
Ans: Marry the one you love
the most.. Mr. FEH. These other
boys are good Joe's , but your
heart has set on one. You couldn't
be happy with ALN or PE as you
lo\»e only your ex-soldier boy.
M T M—I am a discharged vet
of World War II. Have a very
lovely wife as far as I know but
for some reason I have lost all
confidence and hope in her. Every
small thing that happens seems
to disturb me. Please help me!
Ans: Yours is a jealous love,
Mac. You are poising your mind
with evil untruths concerning your
good wife. You are forcing your

NEW YORK—On the famed side
walks, trod by so many millions of
feet, the kids of New York somehow
—almost miraculously, to the hin
terlander—grow up, to be strong
What they may lack of Califor
nia’s tawny tan and the red rosy
cheeks of midland children, they
make up for in wise alertness and
self-assurance. Kids whose front
I lawns are the hard stoops of the
brownstones, whose playground is
the teeming asphalt street, who must
play their games with wary eyes on
darting trucks and traffic, have to
be smart and quick or they don’t
They make excellent cops — not
the big beefy flatfeet who rule with
their fists, but trim and sharp
youngsters who know all the an
swers without thumbing the book,
who can subdue most bully-boy3
with the flick of a nightstick. Facing
gunmen, they’re fast on the draw as
any movie cowboy, and when they
draw they shoot quick and for keeps.
Their sisters grow up to be wives
and mothers of cops; their brothers
and playmates who don’t go into
, “the Finest” become city firemen or
1 taxi drivers or subway guards. Most
of the civil employees of the metrop
olis are keen and hardy alumni of
the sidewalk schools — the well
trained staff which services the city,
for the outlanders who come here to
reap its rewards.

you and respect. I want you to

your unreasonable attitude. Let
me help you, friend.
E B P—I am single and living
in New York without any friends
By accident I was in the company
of Hazel Scott. I think a lot of
her and would like to become her
private secretary. I>o you think
there is any chance of this?
Ans: There certainly is not a
chance for you unless you ask
Miss Scott. Write her a nice note
and perhaps she will see you and
talk with you. If you can show
here where you can be of value
to her, she may give you a break.
But anyway, do write her a nice
letter. You have nothing to lose.
Be sure to include a self addres

21 and I have a step-first cousin
who is very much in love with me
and I’ve learned to love him also. I
I am not allowed to go out very I
much but I go to the movies and j

Ans: It is no sin for step-first
cousins to marry. If you love each
other, have everything in common
it should make a good match. I
don’t believe your people or his,

You are both mutually liked in
your family circle and I am sure
your engagement announcement
would go over smoothly.

she received the commendation of
Mrs Mason Colt, administrator of
Volunteer Special Services, for her
work as director of Red Cross
Grey Ladies at Fort Huachuca,
Ariz., where her son was a physi
cian during World War n .
But that isn’t all. Mrs. Butler
was founder and first president of
the Nation-Congress of Colored
Parents and Teachers in Atlanta
in 1926, and for 20 years has work
ed with this organization. She has
just returned rom Durham, N. C.,
where she attended the national

Nor has Mrs. Butler’s activity
been confined to this country. In
1937, when her son received a Ro

London Hospital, his mother went
too, spending her energy in a var
iety of community affairs, includ
ing the Nursery Schools of Great
Britain, a national organization
for the children of working moth
