A searching party found her at 10:10 a. m. (7:10 p. m. Sunday Central Standard Time.) Guam authorities said she had been seized by a gang of "sex fiends," criminally assaulted and beaten. They said she apparently put up a terrific struggle. A reward of $1,000 'was offered by the proprietor of the curio shop for (he arrest of Miss Farnsworth's attackers. (In San Francisco, Miss Farns- worlh's sister, Aline. 25. said she planned to fly to Ruth's bedside if the navy will permit the trip. ("Thank God she was found alive,'' said Aline when notified by the Associated Press that her sister had been found. "I hope they'll let me fly to Guam and bring her back home when her condition improves for the trip." (Aline returned from Guam only recently. Both young women worked on the navy-administered island so they could send money to a brother, Lawrence, 21, who is in Mexico in a Latter Day Saints church mission. The Farnsworlhs are Mormons. More than 200 marines, soldiers and island police had combed the jungle for Miss Farnswortlh— one of the most beautiful girls on Guam.

Dear Dorothy Dix: You seem to discuss mainly the love affairs of young people, but what about we middle-aged men? Specifically me. I am 48 years old and am very much interested in a girl who is 32 and who has been twice divorced. My problem is twofold. (1) Is the age difference too great for a happy marriage? (2) Is a girl who has been twice divorced at the age of 32 a poor risk for any man? I command a very high salary in my profession and am in a very good financial condition. Because of this I question my Girl Friend's sincerity, and yet would she be likely to risk making another matrimonial mistake? She comes of fine stock, but there is something unstable about her. I appeal to you for your opinion because to be truthful I lack the confidence I had when I was twenty years younger. What are my chances of success? THANKS Answer: A man of 48 does well a/tz ness By William Irish Copyright by William Irish—Distributed by NEA Service, Inc. XXXIX Across the room, over in the far corner, miles away, stood a chair with his clothes upon it. An ebony wood chair, with apricot-plush seat and apricot-plush back. Miles away it stood, and he locked longingly across the miles, .he immeasurable distance from illncsss to health, from helplessness to ability, from death to life. All the way across the room, miles away. He must get over there, lo that chair. H was far away, but he must get over there to it somehow. He could not get out of bed legs upright, so he had to leave it head and shoulders first, in a slanting downward fall. Then there was a second, if less violent, fall as his hips and legs came down after the rest of him. He began to sidle along the floor now, like some groveling thing, a worm or caterpillar, chin touching it at every other moment, hot striving breath stirring the nap of the carpet before him, like a wave spreading out from his face. He was getting closer. The chair was no longer an entire chair; its top was too far up overhead now. The circle of vision, straight before him, level with the floor, showed its four legs, and the shoes under it, and part of the seat. The rest was lost in the blurred mists of height. Then the seat went (oo. just the legs now remained, and he was getting very near. Perhaps near enough already to reach it with his arm. if he extended thai full before him along the floor. He tried it. and it just fell short. Not more than six inches remained between his straining fingertips and the one particular leg he was aiming them for. Six inches was so little lo bridge. Then through his blinding tears, ho saw at last that there were one pair of shoos too many. Four instead of two. His own. under the chair, and hers, off tu the side, unnoticed utitil now. She iviust have e.peneci the door so deftly thai "What did you want, your in.- had not hoard it. clothes? Why didn't you ask me?" she said n inckinglv. "You can have no possible use for them, my clear. You're not wei! enough." And taking the chair in hand, before his broken-hearted eyes j swept it all the wav back against I the wall. j Then when she had him back '[in bed again, she gave him a .smile j thai burned, that seared, though il I was only a sweet, harmless, su- j liciluu.s thing, and the door closed ' after her. Within its luminous halo the e'nair siood, ebuny wood and apricot plush. All the way across the room, leagues away. She fame in later in the moni- ing and sat by him. eoo! and crisp, pretty as a picture, a veritable Fluience Nb-.hlini'.ale, si ing, comforting him, ministering to his wants in every way. In every way but one. "Poor Lou. Do you suffer much?" He resolutely refused to admit it. "I'll be all" right," he panted. "I've never been ill a day in my life. This will pass." She dropped her eyes demurely. She sighed in comfortable agreement. "Yes. this will soon pass," she conceded with equanimity. She fanned him with a "palm- leaf fan. She- brought a basin, and with a moist cloth gently laved and cooled his agonised brow and his heaving chest, each silken stroke lighter than a butterfly's wing. When wator alune would no longer quench his ravening, ever- increasing thirst, she went out and with great difficulty obtained a pail of cracked ice at a fishmonger's, and bringing it back, gave it to him piece by piece to chew and crunch between his teeth. In every way she ministered to him. In every way but one. "Get a doctor," he besought her at last. "I cannot light this out alone. I must have help." She kept her seat. "Shall we not wait another day? Is this my stout-hearted Luu? Tomorrow, perhaps, you will be so much better that—" Me clawed at her garments in mute appeal, until she drew back a little, to keep them from being disarranged. Mis face formed in weazened lines of weeping. 'Tomorrow I shall be dead. Oh, Bonny. 1 cannot face the night. This fire in my vitals — If you love me. if you love me —a doctor." She wont at last. .She was gone "rom the room a half-hour. She came back to it again, her shawl and bonnet on, and took them off. She was alnne. "You didn't---.'" He died a little. "He cannot come before tomorrow. He is coming then. I described to him what your symptoms were, lie said there is no cause for alarm. H is a lorrn of — of colic, and it must run its course. He prescribed what we are tu do until he sees you— Conic- now, be calm — " His eyes v.vre on her. bright with fever ami despair. He whispered at last: "I did not hear the iruiu door close after you." She gave him a quick look, but her answer lUnved unimpeded. "1 left it ajar behind me. to save time when 1 returned. After all, I'd left you alune in llu: hunse. Surely—" Then she said. "You saw my bonnet on me just now, did ymi not?" lie didn't answer further. All his ravaged mind could keep re- the door to stop, look and listen and do a lot of hard thinking before he marries a girl much younger than himself. For at middle age the cards in the love game arc stacked against us. We are no longer pliable. We are set in our ways. We have been to the circus and ridden on the Merry Go Round and we want to settle down and rest our feet. And, above all, we have acquired habits and tastes that are nearer and dearer to us than our next of kin and that we can't bear to part with. Serious Step Marriage is a much more serious proposition at 48 than it is at 28 so put that fact in your cigarette and smoke it before you take the fatal step. To marry a girl who is -16 years younger than you arc is under any circumstances a dan gerous risk for the nearer the same age a husband wife are, the more, aot they are to have the same point of view and to have less to ught over. Nor is it any recommendation foi a girl to have been twice mar ricd and twice divorced at the age of 32. It indicates that she is a pooi picker of men, or that she is fickle and changeable, or that she is a quitter who would not stand by hei husband in any emergency and ba it out with him. But, on the other hand, there is always the chance that the gir who has been married and divor ced a few times has learned hci lesson in the hard school of ex pericnce and that it has devclopec her her from being a playgir into a line woman. Of course, cv cry rich man stands a chance o being married for his money, bu that doesn't happen to the middle aged man as often as it does to the boy. A man at <J8 knows lots o things about women that he didn' know when he was a kid. Anyway, marriage is a gainbli for either the young or old, and perhaps a divorcee is as good risk as any.

I have never had a date and I would so much like to have dates and to go about as other girls do, but my father and mother keep me a virtual prisoner. My mother says she never even thought about a boy until she was 30 years old. My father says that as long as I am under his roof he has a right to control me. When I remind them that things have changed since their youth, they say that all the young people of today are going to bell and that I am going with them. Is there anyway I can make my lot less miserable? M. L. S. Answer: It is no wonder we have- so many delinquent children when we have so many tyranical par- ets who use nu sense of justice in dealing with their teen-age boys and girls. It is a pitiful thing for girls who want to enjoy the spring- tune of life. who want to have pretty clothes as the other girls ! have, and have boy friends, and to dance and go places, to have fathers and mothers who deny the in all the pleasures that go with their time of life. The parents think that they are doing their duty by their daughter;; and protecting them from what they think arc the dangers of life, but they are really throwing them to the wolves.
