Don't Run Away.

of age, who are in love with three
soldiers boys who Just returned
from France. They want us to run
away and marry them. Our parents
object. Should we do it? Is it cor
rect for girls of our Hge to go to
public dances? Is it all right for us
to let boys kiss us goodnight?
Thanking you in advance. Please
put in morning Bee.
THREE ANXIOUS CHUMS.
Tour eoldler boy friends should
be arrested., It is wicked to suggest
such a thing to girls of your age.
They would not marry you, but after
a few days er weeks, grow tired of
the bargain and cast you off in the
scrap heap of ruined girls. No, you
should not go to public dances, nor
should you permit boys to kiss you
goodnight. Kissing leads to all sorts
of things, and you three are Just lit
tle girls. Don't allow soldiers, or
any other man, to suggest running
away. It only means misery for the
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee:
I read your advice to other people
every day and find it all very good.
I am in trouble now and need your
help badly. Friday night I took
(M) a girl friend of mine to the
basket ball game. We sat near an
other girl whom I know fairly well
and I held conversation with her
during most of the game. When we
were starting home I had my back
to M for a minute and she went
home with another boy. I haven't
seen her or talked with her-mce.
Now, Miss Fairfax, whose fault do
you think it was, should she have
left me -in this rude manner? Who
should be the first to apologize, M
or myself? If she refuses to apolo
gize, what could I do to make up?
Please print the answer in Tuesday
morning's Bee. Thanking you in
advance, yours truly. F. W.
Your friend was very rude, in
deed, and unless she apologizes it is
evident that she does not care for
you. This is just another case where
time will solve the problem. It
would be impossible for me to de
termine her real feeling toward you
from her attitude. It may have been
"impulse of youth" and then she
may not care for you. In the latter
case your further attentions would
Did Soldier Die.
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee:
I have read your advice to others,
so I have come to you for some ad
vice, also. I have a sailor that was
at the Great Lakes. We loved each
other very dearly. This morning I
received a letter stating his death. I
don't really believe he is dead, for
when he left me he was just as
strong and healthy as could be.
Could you tell me where I could
write to find mt the actual truth?
They say he died January 25 and
wrote'me a letter January 10. Could
it be possible for me to find out
about his death at the camp where
they say he died?
Thanking you in advance and
waiting your answer in tomorrow's
Bee, I a;m, sincerely yours,

Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee:
I am a steady reader of your col
umn and look to you for advice. I
am a girl of 18 years of age. I have
been going with a young man for
about ix months. We are- engaged
to be married in the spring, but
every time I am out of town he in
sists on going with another girl,
whom I dislike very much. Now,
although I know he loves me dearly,
as of course I do him, do you think
he would be true to me after mar-
riage, should I continue going with
him. or if I should break the en
gagement, should 1 give htm back
the ring until he asks for it? I will
close, hoping to seo my letter in
print soon as possible.
BKOWN EXES. '
If you are engaged your ilance
should not humiliate you by going
with another girl. His intentions
may be all right, bt I suggest that
you explain to him that when he
goes out with the other girl it makes
you the subject of unfavorable com
ment. If he loves you he will not
wlnh your name to be giggled over.
After you have explained this to
him (if he insists on going out with
the other girl), return his ring and
place your affections elsewhere.
