that the family accept her as tho
nothing had happened. Should we
accept her in the family?
Ans: Your brother has already
made his decision in the matter.
For vou and the family to take up

kind in future dealings with your
sister in law.
J. W I received my letter a few
days ago and I want you to know
how much you helped me and my
family The more I deal with my
advisor, the happier I feel. I am
awful proud I found a true friend
in you. All my neighbors think
you are wonderful too. You will
hear from me again. Thanks.
‘ I Wonder”—I love my wife,
sometimes more than I should, I
think. She tells me that she loves
me. but the way she does, she
couldn’t. She belongs, or she tells
me. about four social clubs which
keeps her out at least three nites
a week somewhat late. I have ask
ed to escort her to and from af
fairs, she told me yes. but every
time I come for her she tells me
I need not go, she’s going with
another lady friend. Please answer
in your column what steps to take.
Ans: When husband and wife
start leading separate social lives
it invites misunderstanding and
often times ends in divorce. You
are being too meek with her. She
must be made to realize that what
she is doing is extremely selfish
and unfair to you. Her gadding
about to social functions while you
were in the army was understand
able. But now her first duty is to
you and a wife’s place is in the
J. Me—I am going with a mar
ried man whose wife follows him
wherever he goes. I am expecting
his baby. I am not in love with
him. Lately, I haven’t cared much
for anyone for long at a time. I
have planned to go see a fortune
teller to find out if its natural or
not. Do you think I should? I am
Ans: There is nothing unnatural
about having a baby; that’s your
trouble. You need to be under a
doctor’s care, not a fortune teller.
Begin making plans for the babvs
arrival. You have a friend who will
stand by you during your confine
ment. You must profit by this mis
take and never allow yourself to
become attached to a married man
in the future. Its the girl who al

F DICKIES FOR FALL H'
12 DICKIES FOR
College girls are really going in
for dickies this semester. . that is,
if the girls at Bennett, Palmer
Memorial, and A. and T. in North
Caroline are typical of the Ameri
can College girl. Bennett College
is an all g rls school located at
Greensboro, N. C., Palmer Mem
orial is the only finishing school
for Negroes in America, located at
Sedalia, N. C. and A and T. Col
lege is the state college for Ne- ^
groes at Greensboro.
The main reason for the flour
ishing of dickies is the prominence
of tailored suits. Dickies take the
place of blouses. They’re easier to
keep up and they are so cheap a
young school Miss can easily af
ford to own a dozen, or more.
They can be made in colors and
in almost any design that suits the
taste. For instance, there are the I
frilly ones with nice fluffy lace I
fronts, there are the tuxedo sty
les and there are the pleated and
stitched front styles. The kind of
dickey you wear depends abso
lutely on the cut of the suit the
young Miss intends to wear. If its
a real manish cut she can make

Denver’s civic center will have the
opportunity November 5 to vote
for the creation of a similar com
munity hub in Omaha.
A civic center is one of 14 ur
gent projects evolved by the May
or's city-wide planning committee
for the purpose of placing Omaha
in the front rank among progres
E. F. (Gene) Agee, general chair
man of the Mayor’s committee,' in
pointing out that there would be
a separate ballot for each pro
ject, urged voters to go to the polls
as early as possible.
Discussing the improvement pro
gram with committee members to

center “an imperative need in Om

' “engineers' who make a study of

become convinced that a centrally

Mr. Agee declared that it is for
tunate that Omaha can acquire the
necessarv p-operty for the project
The Mayor's committee has set
the cost for creating a civic cen
ter for public buildings at $960,000
If approved by Omahans in the
November 5 election, the center
will provide Dnd for a combined
city and county building, a mod
ern post office building, a rublic
librarv, and a new auditorium,

Mr Agee said thrt the civic cen
j ter p’an has the hearty endorse
ratn the federal -overnment,
whir’- n looking toward the con
struction of a $7,000,000 port of
fice building in Omaha.
Another issue to be placed be
fore the city’s voters will be the
improvement of Omaha’s public
market at eleventh and Jackson
The Mayor’s committee has pie
ced the installation of toilet fac
ilities, running water, garbage r<_
fuse disposal, and the improvement
of parking and traffic facilities at
the market at a cost of $81,500.
To bring this about, and parti
cularly to improve the parking si
tuation, Mr. Agee said it has been
recommended that the city acquire
by condemnation or otherwise a
lot north of the market on Howard
Street and the purchase of 'a lot
west of the area.
It has also been recommended
that the city or the Omaha Whole
sale Produce Market company,
owner of part of the market area, ;
purcharse the Windsor Hotel pro
perty at the east end of the block
at Tenth and Jackson streets.
Mr. Agee pointed out that vo
ters will also have the opportuni
ty to have their say on November
5 on 12 other projjects, inccluding
airports; river-rail terminal and ri
j ver transportation; fire stations;
police stations; grade crossings and
viaducts, streets, boulevards and
traffic signals; parks playgrounds
and recreation; parking; munici
pal garages; auditorium; naval ar
mory; and sanitation.
