Problems That Perplex
'. Dear Miss Fairfax: In reply to
Mother and Daughter, this truly is a
problem. There arc many kinds of
boys and girls ir this world. Sonic
girls don't care to go with boys at
16, but these are not the kind of
girls who haw- been taught always
to "beware of boys."
I think every little girl should be
tatight to play with little boys and
should grow up all the while with a
knowledge of boys and their ways.
In these days of parties, dances,
etc., the youthful desire to mingle
and be happy' can be satisfied with
out girls being out alone with boys
on dark nights.
Just suppose, mother, that your
daughter never goes with a boy un
til she is 19. Then on her 19th birth
day you invite a crowd of young
people to your homo in honor of
.her arid ori'taking leave one oi the
young1 men guests, whom, from yours
and your daughter's lack of com
panionship with young people, you
do'not know, asls to call on your
daughter. Truly his manners are
fine, he is ..well dresfcil and attrac
tive and you consent, having no right
now not to consent. He calls, he
makes repeated calls, takes daughter
out and daughter, eager for romance,
centers her happiness on him and
consents to he his wife. They are
married pijd daughter has never had
her, play tirtje. even though they live
happy ever after. Of course, this
may not be the case, but this hap
pens much too often.
Wouldn't ybti rather, mother, min
gle and have your daughter mingle
now from the time she is 16 with all
the young people of her age and be
learning their ways.
Why, the man might not have been
the right kind for your daughter; he
might have even been playing with
her and. ignorant as you both would
be of the ways of young men of to
day, you' would not know until it
was .too late. Try inviting boys and
girls to your home and going with
your daughter to other people's
homes in short, just filling the time
with happiness , found in school,
games, 'parties, deuces, etc., from
now until she is 20. It will make
you haopv, too. Too many of us
are denied these hapny girlish years.
.Think it over. and write your decision
to Miss Fairfax, so wc may know
Mother and Daughter.
A flood of mall has come in ad
dressed to "Mother and Daughter,"
whose letters were prtnted more than
a week ago- in these columns. We
hope some of the advice contained
in the letters will help other mothers
and daughters who are wondering
how old a srirl should be before she
should be allowed to go with boys.
Pear Miss Fairfax: I was so deep
ly impressed with the letters from
mother and daughter in the Febru
ary 1 5 issue of The Omaha Bee that
I just feel' like I must be one to send
in my views on this subject.
I certainly sympathize with this
JHmg lady,"" Mother' says, "No, she
shall' not .haw any boy friends until
she is 19," and -.her only reason is be
cause that was the., way she was
raised and she believes she should
bring her children up the same way.
Times , have changed, mother,
since you and I were girls. Now, I
don't believe 16-year-old girls should
run around with the boys or without
them, either, for that matter, three
or four eights out of the week, but
I do believe that 1 6-year-old girls, if
they are normal and self-respecting,
should have a little libcrty'and a few
pleasures. For me. I would much rather my
girr.wou.Id--go out with some nice
young man than to run around with
a whole lot of yirls that I know. It
seems to me if a girl is able to work
and make her own way, and is cap
able of taking care of herself while
at her work, she could certainly go
out occasionally with the young folks
and have a good time, in an innocent
way. i -
, Mother, don't . teach Slaughter to
deceive you. Sympathize with her,
let her have her young company, let
her invite them to her home, help
her to select her companions and
triends. help her to plail her little
entertainments and she will come to
you for advice and sympathy instead

Being Too Patient.
Dear. Miss Fairfax: Four years
ago 1 met a young man of my own
age. During all this time I always
tried to remind him that ours was
nothing but a friendship. At last
he has made me realize that he is
deeply in 4ove with me; he naturally
wants rny love in return, and has an
idea that marriage is the only proof
of real love and detests the idea f
waiting. I have tried to impress
him t,hat he owes it to himself to
continue his college career. He
swears he is never in the company ot,
other girls, yet acquaintances are be
ing taken out by him. He criticizes
these girls when in my company,
and yet I have been at dances when
he brought these very' girls.
I realize 'that as long long as we
are not engaged I have no right to
keep tabs on him, no more than he
can keep tabs on me. but I can't un
derstand his object of lying about it.
At present we are not on speaking
terms. ' I would like to know' what
it all means his talk and then his
actions. V -"
J know it can't go on this way for
ever, so one has got to call a halt;
it's up to me. What would you advise
me to do mere words no longer
have any effect? ACJIRL.
I gather from your letter that the
young man Is really not worth
while; if he treats you this way be
fore ypu ore even' engaged to him,
what do you think he would do
when you were married?
Looking Down on Marriage.;
Dear Miss Fairfax: I have a
sweetheart with whom I agree in
every respect but one. That one is
this: I like to go to theaters and
restaurants. I take delight in see
ing different faces. My sweetheart,
although he takes me to those
places, always goea unwillingly. I
am inclined to believe he is merely
stingy. He can't seem to under
stand that if I see enough of the
world outside of my own narrow cir
cle I would be more than content
with my own lot when the time
comes to settlo down.
Don't you think that if he would
take me out without worrying about
each expense (which I'm sure is un
necessary), we would both be far
happier? , COMEBACK.
When you end your letter you
really begin it. The moment you
speak of marriage as a settling
down, you show how wrong your
attitude is. , Marriage is the real be
ginning of your love-story and your
life-story not the ending. You
seem to be racing around flow with
a wild feeling that you must have
your good times and see all of life
you can because you are going pres
ently into the prison house of mar
riage. It's quite the opposite. The
right marriage the true marriage
will open the doors of the world
to you. I've an idea that stinginess
isn't a factor in your fiance's atti
tude. Probably ho hates the idea of
your thinking that you need to lay
up this sort of a treasure to make
you content later with marriage.
Don't you see how you look down on
marriage, how you belittle it, how
you feel that it is going to cut you
off from all that makes the world
beautiful? I'm not answering your
question because you can answer
it after you've faced a far more vital
one: What does this marriage of
mine mean to me drudgery and a
humdrum existence, or beauty and
