One is 23 years old and the other is 22. The one who is 23 married last month without my consent and has left rne. My 22-year-old son is constantly threatening to leave home. What can I do? A DISTRACTED MOTHER Answer: Let them go. That is what every mother has to do in the end. because it is the law of life. The young must cut. their mother's apron strings and go into the world to seek their fortunes. They must live their own lives. They must stand on thoir own mistakes and have their own experiences. They must stumble and fall and hurt themselves, and get up and try it all over again. And it is hard for mothers to accept this and to realize that their children are individual human beings, and that they get to be grownup men and women, entitled to lead their own lives. Mother would like to hold them by the hand and lead them about as if they were babies until they were old men and women themselves. At 23 your son has a right to marry and leave you and set up his own home. Let him do it in peace and with your blessing, instead of making a row about it and alienating him and his wife from you. And at 22 the other boy has a right to leave home if he so desires. Let him go and try his wings. If ho is strong enough to fly, well and good. If he isn't, he will come back to the home nest humbled and chastened and content to stay in it and appreciate its softness. son for the Junior and Senior CYF. 7:30—Evening worship, Communion, and Sermon.

Incompatible Dear Dorothy Dix: I am a business woman whose life and experience has always been in the business world and with business people. My father is a successful business man and the people I associate with dress and have the same habits that I have. Now I have become engaged to a man who comes from a very humble class. His folks are careless in tlw?ir manners and appearance. They have no interests out side of their homes and. children They seem perfectly happy, .bu the life they lead would drive me crazy. Can there be snobbery'. in. love? I love my sweetheart, but I jus can't take his family. What shall do? TROUBLED Answer: I do not think tha either you or the man would be happy if you married, because your habits of life are entirely differen and they would bring you into con tinual conflict. You would alway be trying to lift him to the -highe life, and there is nothing a man re sents so much as having his wife at tempt to improve him. He is wha his environment has made him and you would change him at you peril. Naturally, he loves his familj and the way they live seems ai right to him, so he would neve understand why their manners anc appearance offended your sensibi: ities. Each of you will be happier . you will, marry in your own class amoxjg the people who have the ame tastes and background that ou have. Dear Dorothy Dix: I have a atighter 17 who is a good student nd makes a fine record at school, he is very attractive and has nany boy admirers. Do you think he is old enough to attend movies nd go to school dances on Fri- ays and Saturdays? MRS. D. R. Answer: Of course, a girl of 17 s old enough to have dates with nice boys as long as they do hot nterfere with her school work. A girl of 17 is-as old and sophisticated tow as a girl of 20 was in your lay. I think it is a great mistake to ry to keep a girl from having any association with boys until after she has finished school or college. t makes- her boy-conscious, and she is awkward and i'll at ease Few Copies of Memorial Book Available A few copies of the memorial heroes are now available at the •War book of Hempstead County Hope Chamber of Commerce office, Cy Forsythe, announced today. '. They will be given free lo anybody wanting one. with them, and she invariably idealizes them and thinks them romantic heroes to be worshipped, instead of just plain lads to.be played with. There is no surer way of making n girl boy-crazy than to try to keep her away from them. (Released by The Bell Syndicate, Inc.) ' NOTICE We are set up to se!!

She offered them both. ''Take whichever one you want.' Then when he had, she tasted tentatively at the one that remained in her hand. "I hope I didn't put in too much sugar. Too much would sicken. May I try yours?" "Of course." She took it back from him, tasted at il in turn. It left a little while trace on her upper lip. While she stood thus, holding both together, she turned her head toward Ihe kitchen door. "What was that?" "What? I didn't hear anything." She went back in again for a moment.

"Since it has brandy in it," she said, "I suppose we should precede it with a toast." She nudged her glass to his. "To your better health." She drained hers to the bottom. He took n deep draught of his. He found il quite velvety pleasurable. The liquor in it, with which she had been unsparing, gave a mellow warming effect to the stomach after it had lain there some moments. . . , „ ...
