Penny Staples, whom Tip had given the brush-off, sneered openly. I The Sweet Shoppc, chosen hangout for the arrogantly selt- assured teen-age crowd of Marshallville, was in lull swing at four in the afternoon. Bobbysoxers, in camel's hair coats,' "sloppy Joe" sweaters, the inevitable, saddle shoes, with bright shining manes of hair hangmq loose about their shoulders; and boys of their own age and generation in weirdly patterned, brilliantly colored shirts and slacks and socks that dangled about their shoes in a manner to distress helpless fathers and mothers, swarmed over the place as though they owned it. Behind the long, gleaming front three young girls and the harassed "soda-jerker" worked like inact to provide cokes, maltcds and weird concoctions of several varieties oi ice cream, nuts and fruits such as are beloved of the very young. And as they faced the daily mad scramble they yearned for 5 o'clock when, like a covey of bright-winged, clamorous birds, the teen- age gang would sweep out and a blessed, cherished quiet would descend upon the Sweet Shoppc. It would last until after the first show at the neighborhood movie, when it would start all over again. As it by some divine right, Merry Carson's own particular gang occupied . the two favorite booths. • Built to accommodate four, each boojh was jam-packed with six to eight young people, practically standing on each other's shoulders. And Merry, acknowledged leader of this particular gang, partly because she had been voted "cutest" of her class, partly because the awe-inspiring Tip Kennedy, captain of the football team, admittedly the best Fulton High had ever had, was her "steady dale," looked contentedly from one bright, flushed, excited face to the other. the world. Tip had found it on a junk heap, bought it for ,$25 and had labored over it a whole summer, until now he, and he alone, could coax it to run. Clattering and clamoring furiously, protesting every mile, but running, and the pride of Tip's heart. Tip growled as he swung his colt-like legs over the other door, tucked them beneath the wheel and did deft thing:; lo the car that made it finally start. "Jealous my left-hand eyebrow," he answered, once he had subdued the car's roar to only a relatively mild protest. "What's she got to be jealous about'.' If she'd pull in her claws, and be a nice . a! wilh other girls, she could have all the Fellows she wants. She's pretty as new paint, a darned cute dish; but the minute another girl shows up. she trots out the claws and starts biliiu; in the clinches." who They upon Warm and contented and happy, she loved them all. Life was wonderful; the gang was wonderful; her new formal for the prom was "frantic" (a year ago everything had been 'super" but the gang had dropped "super" in favor of "frantic"!. School was wonderful: she was fioing to make a good scholastic record this semester. Tip was wonderful, lie was in rigid training and he had to keep up his studies in order to be allowed sufficient- tin if for training and therefore he had permitted her to help him. So they did homework together on school nights and she was humbly giato- ful to him for letting her' help. She was goini; to be 17 in the summer, she reminded hersi.-ll' happily. Sixteen and a half w.is an exciting age. The big games were coming up.

Obediently Merry scooped Merry, who knew just as well as anyone with a mirror could know such a thiny that she was not nearly as pretty as Penny, felt her heart drop. She shook back the gleaming mop of sunshiny brown hair that framed her vivid gamin face and asked soberly, "Could she even have you, Tip, if she'd putt in her claws'.'" Tip shot her a swift glance. "Cripes sake, Merry, be you 1 ' age. You know denied well 'that no other girl in the hemisphere could have me while you're around," he growled at her. And to Merry, Charles Buyer, Gregory Peck and Cary Grant all rolled into one couldn't have sounded more romantic. "Fact is. I've been wanting to talk to you. Merry." Merry's heart gave a bin thump, as though the Struggle-Buggy had suddenly run over a rock; and then it climbed into her throat and .started doing nip-ups. She looked at Tip with shining eyes and wished she could push her heart down where it belonged so she could talk to him. But s h o could only look at him, am and hold her breath. (To Be Continued) Sunday School Lesson By WILLIAM E. GILROY, D.D. What docs Christmas mean to you? 'io many, away from home in school or college or in places of business, it will mean a joyous homecoming, with the traditional bountiful things that homecoming implies. To many it will be the hope of snow and the joys of winter sports. To others it will mean seasonal business and profias in the ever-expanding affair of gifts and greetings. And to some it will be only a pagan festival, with greeting cards o£ cats and dogs and outdoor scenes, pleasant enough but having little to do with what Christmas actually means. But to many thousands of Sunday school scholars, and to many other thousands of Bible readers, Christmas will mean a turning to the Gospel pages for the age-old, ever-new story of the coming of the Christ-child. It will mean the thought of all that His coming meant, to Mary his mother, to the Wise Men. and shepherds, to the many longingly awaiting the coming of the Messiah. There is no real Christmas without Christ. And that is why Christmas will not mean all that it ought to mean in the l>0lh century. For outwardly the world pavs homage to the Christ, and dates its vears irom His birth. But strife, prejudice, haired and violence so belie that outward homage, that the cynic might well decry the celebration of Christmas in a world of such darkness and fear. But it was a dark world into which the Christ-child came. It too, had its division and strife. The rule of force was dominant, though one great power of Rome had subdued all enemies. It had its housing problem, too, for there was no room in the inn and the Christ- child was born in the manger of a stable, a lowly birth in a- lowly place. Here, then, is the real joy of Christmas, and the reality of its celebration in a world dark with hadows and atomic threats. That a mother desire to keep herself the central figure in her children's lives and to force them to always be on their knees burning incense before her. Also, she teels that by harping continually upon her sacrifices and sufferings she can tyrannize over her children by keeping them feeling that they owe her a debt which tney can never repay her. Martyr Complex There are many mothers have the martyr complex, never weary of descanting _._.... all that they have given up for the sake of their children, and they perpetually remind their children of what a debt of gratitude they owe them. All of which is mere hokum. Certainly, rt'ter having thrust the burden of life upon a child, by every code of fairness and decency a mother is bound to do the best she can to take care oE that child's health, to give it as good an education as possible and to teach it manners and morals and so fit it for the struggle of life. So Mother needn't take any too much credit to herself for doing her manifest duty to her children. This isn't saying that children shouldn't love and honor their mother and make every possible return for her kindness' to them. They should, for people deserve a lot of credit for even doing their duty. But the obligation of the parent to the child is many times greater than that of the child to the parent. It is a pity that your mother cannot realize how fed up one can get on whining and complaining, and how little inclined one feels to hand out the gratitude that is demanded. If she could be convinced of this, she would be a better sport and try to hold your love by companionship, instead of exacting your affection as a duty. The Doctor By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M.D Written for NEA Service The germ responsible for Weil's disease, or Spirodiolal jaundice, has been found in about one out of ten grown-up rats (rapped in both city and rural area:; of this country .Although most cases tan be traced to rats, the germ has also been found in (log-.;, cat;;, mice, pigs, horses and some other animals. Sewer workers, tunnel diggers, .•;ugar-cuiu' cutlers, workers in rice fields:, iish dealers, poultry dressers, and miners are roporli.'d to be the most frc(|Ueiu victims of this disciasi.s. All of lhe.se workers are engaged in occupations in wet places in which rats thrive. in its characteristic form, the di.sc.a.se comes .suddenly with pain in the muscles, fever, and a general feeling of weakness or prostration. It is only later that the yellow color ul the skin and other signs of jaundice become evident. A tendency tu bleed easily and disturbance of the kidney function is also common.

It is glorified in the love that shines in the inward souls and outward lives of those who not only manifest the honesty of soul and action, but whose lives display the fact that they "have learned of Jesus." Here is where our vision, and our faith, and our hope should be in this L'Oth century Christinas, and not upon the things lhat deny the Lord, and His teachings, and make nothing of His coming. It is a lime in the midst of lhat denial for great affirmations, for saying to the world, "The Lord is come," and for saying it with joy, in life as well as in words. For in all that Christinas means is (he world's hope. And it is the world's only hope. Dear Miss Dix: What do you think of a boy taking his Girl Friend on a week-end trip to a large city? Everything is going to be perfectly proper. We expect to stay al a holel and enjoy the sights of the city together. ': DOROTHY T. Answer: It is not to be thought of. It is simply one of the things that isn't done by people who have any respect for the conventions. No girl who cared for her good name would dream of doing such a thing, because this is a censorious and scandal-loving world and everybody would believe the worst of her. Dear Dorothy Dix: I am a man of 25 and am in love with a sweet girl and would like to ask her to marry me, but this is the rub: Frankly I do not like to work. Have tried several jobs, but none of them have been to rtiy liking. I would like to do some kind of work, but I haven't any patience unless everything conies my way What would you do if you were in my position? :; LAZY BONES Answer; your own •At. 23 hands. your'. fate is You can go in to work and make of yourself what you will. Five years from now you can be happy, prosperous and self- rcFpecling, Or you can go on as you are now and be nothing— a failure, a loafer, drifting about from ill-paid job to ill-paid job. The decision is entirely up to you. Put the marriage proposition out of your head until you have earned the right to marry. Let this girl be your goal, and the way you hustle to get hor will, be the measure of your desire for her. Have enough pride and manhood about you not to ask a girl to marry you until you have made something of yourself and can earn a decent living. (Released by The Bell Syndicate, Inc.) or children.
