The adolescent boy has neither the experience nor the maturity to solve many of his new problems satisfactorily alone and the result is often shown in erratic and peculiar behavior, especially at home. The adolescent boy needs the sympathy and understanding of his parents, and he needs adult companionship, loo. This does not mean the companionship of his own age should be excluded because that would not be right at any age. Strange behavior, however, should be taken in stride and not too much made of occasional lapses from convention manners. Such behavior, providing the home life has previously been satisfactory, will disappear with maturity. No Sharp Line There is no sharp dividing line between adolescence and maturity. Sexual instincts arise at this time and should be discussed early and frankly with parents or physician. Accompanying these new sensations and awareness of the world are problems with which every boy has to wrestle to greater or lesser degree. The normal boy should be allowed increasing freedom year by year rather than held in very tight control for several years and then put entirely on his own. This helps to develop the independence and stable nervous system which all parents should want for their sons.

Today and Tuesday Features 2 00 - 4:15 6:33 - 8:51 JANE POWELL WALLACE BEERY NEWS MUSICAL PARADE THE STORY: Life seems bright and beautiful to sixteen-year-old Merry Carson, whose big moment is Tip Kennedy, captain of the high school football team. When Tip suggests they become formally engaged after they finish school, Merry is dazed with happiness. But that very evening she walks into a ft range scene at home. Her mother. Susan, hysterically tells Merry that Kin, Merry's dashing father, wants a divorce — that there is another woman. When Susan vilely abuses the other woman, Kin loses control and slaps her. Ill Merry saw Susan .st.'isycr back, her eyes wide, one hand going up to touch with incredulous fingers the iaint reddish mark on her cheek. She saw Kin's face, white and sick and ashamed. "I'm sorry. Susan: that was unforgivable." IK- :-a\d through clenched teeth, and gave Merry a look that twisted her heart. "You stru', 1 !; me," whispered Susan, us though shame could havo no further depths. She looked at him with dawning horror, and suddenly .she was shaking vio- whirled, unpleasantly startled. Kin stood there, looking at the woman who lay asleep in the big bed where Merry had been born. "She'll sleep till morning, Merry. Dr. Smith said," Kin's voice was low, and very tired. "Come downstairs, chick. I want to talk to you." Merry rose like' a frightened, docile child and followed him down the stairs and into the living room. Kin stood for a Jong moment in front of the big fire of logs that blazed on the open hearth, his hands sunk deeply in his pockets, his. handsome dark brown head, in which there was not a single thread of gray. bent. "I'd give my right arm, Merry, if I could have spared you that scene," he said at last heavily. "I didn't dream that Susan would go to pieces." "Is it true, Dad? I mean that you're walking out on us','" Merry whispered it, her tone thick with fear. 4,75 zone of American By WALTER BUNDLE American-Soviet Zonal Frontier, Germany, Dec. 17. —(UP)— This is a story that is being repealed 1,000 times a night—possibly 000 times a month—along the miles where the Soviet ermany borders the and British zones. It is the story of Willi Klcmpp and the night that he and his wife and his son slipped across the zonal frontier from Eastern Germany into the American zone, ref- —his papers were examined and he told his story. Although he entered illegally, the guards decided not to send him and his family back to the Soviet zone. Few refugees are turned back. Jsually only known criminals, offenders or persons wanted for war crimes. The Klempps were sent to an nterment camp for more questioning. 1C his story satisfies the authorities, he and his family prob- Dc-ar Dorothy Dix: How much should the husband have to sny about the furnishings, the adornments and the general arrangement of the home? I am very fond of my home and take a great interest and pleasure in beautifying it. to which my wife strenuously objects. She contends that, as the. wife spends most of her time in the home, she has the right to have full authority in it and make it the expression of her taste and desires, without any reference whatever to what the husband likes. In a word, it is HER house, not her husband's. This docs not seem fair to me. I think that the husband should have a part in the arrangement of the house since he is in the home about two-thirds of the time and, after all, he is the one who supports it. What do you think about it? W. D. S. Answer: Why wives consider that they have a right to monopolize the home and run it according to their own taste, without permitting the "gintlemin who pays the rint" to have even a say-so in the matter, is one of the peculiarities of the feminine sex. A woman may be devoted to her husband. She may admire his intelligence and respect his judgment until it comes to the home. Then it's hands off. She arrogates to herself the sole right to decide on the color of the wallpaper and what period the furniture shall be. Husbands are Handy This is a pity, for husbands not only are handy things to have around the house when the bills fall due, but many men are artistic by nature, and if their wives would permit them they would make far more beautiful and attractive homes than the ladies are capable of doing. Also the best remedy yet devised for house breaking a husband and keeping him home of nights is to encour age his hobby for painting pictures, or carving furniture, or developing a taste for concocting new dishes. Women make a terrible mistake when they don't give their husbands the run of the house, and lot them have a hand in decorating it. Dear Miss Dix: I have been mar•led for 27 years to a man who rankly tells me that he is madly n love with another woman and claims he never will be happy at lome wtih me. There are times, when he is at home, when I think :ie is going stark, staring mad because he longs so much to be with the one he loves and because he is so unhappy. I am sure the only solution of our tragic problem is ior me to give him a divorce In order that everything can be all right. A. S, Answer: Evidenty your love for your husband is as dead as his love for you, so why keep a festering corpse tied to you? Surely you can finn no pleasure in forcing n man to live with you when he hates you with every breath he breathes. So why be the dog in the manger that keeps away from another the love for which you have long since Jost your taste? You are still young enough to make your life over but, believe me, you will only find happiness if you give happiness. Dear Miss Dix: I am a girl of 13 and am very much in love with a boy who is 13 years old. You will most likely call it puppy-dog love, but it isn't. [ have been in love with him for three months. The trouble is he loves another girl. I have tried everything to get him back, but he just won't look at me* Can't you please help me? JANICE Answer: Well, dearie, you seem .o have diagnosed your trouble very accurately, even if you don't admit it. H is puppy love, all right. But while under certain conditions, as when grownups are laughing at you, it may be painful, yet it is never fatal. In a few years you will outgrow your infantile malady and will laugh to think that you ever could have imagined you were in love with some little boy as immature and ignorant as you were. The real serious phase of your trouble is that you arc wasting the time that you should spend in getting an education in slobbering over some little hobbledehoy lad. And that's a pity. Kin caught her close in gentle arms that, for all their gentleness, would not be denied.

There was a hideous interval during which, between them, with Susan fighting Kin's touch, screaming' and kicking, he and Merry j carried her upstairs and put her to bed. Merry hovered over her, feeling as though all this must be some ghastly nightmare from which she would soon awaken, until the doctor camu and .gave Susan a sedative.

He held her a little away from him and looked down at her, his handsome brows drawn together. ! Then his voice quickened. "Well, darling, maybe after all there is some hope that you can understand. It's just this, Merry; I've been very lonely these last years." Puzzled and hurt, she protested, "But, Dad, Mother and I have been right here all the time." Hi:; smile was faintly wry. "Bodily, yes," he admitted. "But Susan has always been preoccupied wtih her domestic problems; and you've been busy growing up. And—well, a man yearns for understanding companionship. I've asked Susan to take trips with me, when 1 had to make them; but she always pointed out that Ihe place would simply fall apart without her." "And so you found somebody else to make trips with you, load?" asked Merry. Kin studied her curiously, and there was an unhappy quirk to his clean-cut, good-looking mouth.

He lived in a small but once prosperous town in Thuringia in the Soviet zone of Germany. Things had gone from bad to worse for him since the end of the war. The Communists had promised prosperity under a Russian-sponsored two-year plan. Instead, factories closed because they couldn't get enough coal and raw material. The shortages were intensified_ by the Western Allies' counter blockade, imposed in retaliation for the Russian highway and rail blockade of Berlin. Klempp's job as foreman of a small iron foundry collapsed. He had had no clothes since before the war. He could get only black bread for his family to eat. There had been no meat for the past six weeks. There were no fats at all, The Russians promised 2,000 calories a day. Klcmpp and his family were lucky if they were getting 1,400. Ho gave up attending political meetings after his Christian Democratic party was forced into the Communist fold in Eastern Gcr- Tiany, The Soviet xonc German police noted his absence. They went to his house once and asked ques- .ions. They also asked questions of. :iis neighbors.

It meant leaving his pre- j war home, lii.s HKiV car and his furniture and household goods. | But his wife and sou agreed that flight seemed the only answer. They remembered letters from a brother in the American zone describing life there and decided to iry and join him.
