N. W.—I always read your col.
first. I am 24 years old and have
twin boys. My husband and I arc
divorced. Six months ago I met
a swell man and two months ago
I met another swell fellow. 1 do
really love .lie last man. He is
much younger than the first. The
first is 40 and the last is 2G and
both of them love me very much
and both want to marry me. I
don't want to hurt either one as
they are so nice. Tell me what
Ans: Don't lose your head. I
don’t have to tell you that a mar- j
riage without love holds no pro
mise of happiness. So. .if you can
not return the older man’s love, i
do not accept his favors.. break
off with him as gracefully as you
can. As to the man your age..
you must find out if he is willing
to share your responsibility and
lof your your two boys. A divor
cee and mother to boot, can not
marry nasuiy. Marry no man un
til you have gone together for
at least six months. You must be
sure of yourself this time.
L. J.—I have completed the 10th
grade at school and have been out
two years. At the beginning of
each term I thought I would re.
turn but didn't. I am beginning to
think if I am going to get an ed
ucation I will have to provide it
for myself. I want to take typing
or nursing or- a business course or
something where I can earn a liv
ing. Tell me what to do? I have
been thinking of trying to work
my way through some school.
Ans: A very excellent and
commendable idea. Go back to
school and get that diploma. A
part time job after school hours
and Saturdays will see you thru.
After graduation, you can take a
vocational evening school course
in the work of your choice. Will

; MY WAY j
(BY LAWRENCE P, LEWIS)
For ten years I have been try
ing to get even with these Slot
Machines. I have not lost my
weeklv pay or the baby’s shoes,
but the few dolars that I have
lost have always made me more
eager to get them again so that
I could get irv monev back.
Just when I was beginning to
win a few nickles back they have
taken them out of the many esta
I blishments. It just doesn't seem
fair to me. but the law is the law
and it must be oeyed, or else..
I don’t play them often, like I
do the races during their running
at the Ak-Sar-Ben track, but
every once in a while when I am
out seeking the gayer part of life.
I chance a nickle or so. Sometimes
I win. but let’s keep that a secret.
A very good friend of mine
seems to win most of the time and
truthfully he does. I tell him he
is just lucky, but he has explained
I to me more than once how it
! should be done in order to win.
! One evening I met my good
friend on 24th and Lake. After I
had met him I anticipated a good
bridge or whist game. He had
i other ideas.
| “How about a little taste of
! something while we talk,'1 my
i friend asked.
I was more than glad to accept.
I was glad that he had not ment
ioned the card game. I wanted
j to sit and talk; making the world
over, and telling tall stories about
how I won the war.
After the first drink my friend
wanted to venture further. In or
der to continue the conversation,
! I had to venture along with him.
! I had not even began to tell him
1 about the swell time I enjoyed in
Arriving at the club, the first
thing that came into view was the
gaily colored and inviting slot ma
j chines. My friend looked at one
! of them and remarked, “this one
is about ready to pay off. I think
I will try a few nickles.”
He reached into his pockets.
1 separated his change, and inserted
I one of his coins. My hand did not
go into my pocket so readily. I

for some coins. He had continued
playing and everytime the mach

srrrled to myself; wo*-id have pel
ted myself on the back if I could
because of my good iudgement by
not going in with him.
Afte- hitting three pays out of
ten I felt like quitting. I had won
five nickles and they have always |
told me you can’t win forever.
My friend walked to the bar;
purchased a drink and received
some more nickles. After giving
me my drirk he continued play- j
ing the machine. .. “No use being j
a piker”, I thought to myyself, I j
might as well chance my winnings :
and go for bigger stakes. I'd show i
my friend that I could win as well
as anvone else.
As I nulled the handle, with mv
eyes wide open and my heart
beating faster than ever, I watch

plums, bells, and bars as they fell
into place. When the first two
wheels had stopped and they had
matched I about had heart fail
ure when the third wheel stopped
on the wrong selection.
I was more determined to mat
ch all of them, and even had hopes
of hitting the jackpot. I was com
ing close, but close doesn't count. !
Staying even wasn’t my objective
now. I was going to play big-shot.

not from the heat.
“..I’ll <r~t another drink," I
said. “Might as well drink my
money up as put it in the mach

I thought to myself. “Strange

the whiskey he can afford, and
many persons under the influence
of the liquor, will rob, molest, and
