(la.) Upper Des Moines Thursday, Feb. 23, 1961 You Can Address Questions to Him At BOX 66 KALISPELL, MONTANA Under A cohuim for u*.o By Don Betty Besch Is Feb. 13 Bride At Whittemore ; Dear Dan: It isn't very often that I haven't been able to go to «iy parent? and get ndvice and guidance but this time I know 1 can't .nnd I'm asking you for your help. I'll be 21 in July,' a man in tljc eyes of the law. My girl nnd I would like to get married sometime this summer but the way things look, we just don't know. Our problem is religion. She's a Catholic and I'm a Bap'tis and as much as we love each other, we won't give up 'our religion for the other. We're sure of that decision so the question we're in qliiring about is mixed-marriages or marriages between people o different religions. / * \ How good would our chances be for our marriage to succeed with each of us going lo different churches? How about children? I f wouldn't want the children raised as Catholics nnd my wife wouldn't want the mraised «s Baptists. Do you have any ugures to show just how successful such rn,nn'inges arc nnd what is the outcome where children are concerned? — Mixed Up. Dear Mixed Up: Mixed marriages arc in great part like other marriages — some are successful nnd some fail. I know of many couples of different religions who apparently have happy marriages arid in several cases, either the husband or Ihe Wife has made enough of a concession so that the; children are being raised in one religion without any bitterness or disappointment on the parents' parts. However, I don't advocate mxcd mnrriages and never will. Your girl and you can learn a lot more by scheduling a meeting with her •priest nnd your minister and tnlking the problem out. That's about all I cnn tell you. * * * • Dear Dan: There's a boy who goes to our canteen every Frida . night nnd I'm just dying to meet him but I don't know how. H dances once in n while but has never asked me and I don't have th courage lo ask him whenever we have a ladies choice. I have caugh him staring nt me several limes and wonder if this means he migh like to get to know me? Please answer soo. — Miss Shyness. Dear Miss Shyness: If you haven't asked this boy to dance during a ladies choice because of shyness, it's just possible the boy has same problem. A boy can appear to be a regular ladies' man one dance w/th 30 different girls during an evening but if he has enough shyness in his make-up, he usually won't be very aggressive where the crirl he likes is concerned. It looks to me as if you're wasting a ilot of valuable time. Get up your courage and the next time you have a ladies choice, ask him. II you don't, he just may get discouraged and stop coming to the canteen. Wouldn't thnt be terrible? * * * Dear Dan: I want to get a lawn mowing business started this summer and would like to know if I should charge extra when I use my mower or would it be belter to keep the price the same for everybody? I'm nearly 14. — Ambitious. Dear Ambitious: Use your own lawn mower for all your work and charge the same rate, whether Jt be for the size of a lawn or by the hour. * » * Dear Dan: When a boy wanls to,kiss a girl goodnight, does he just kiss her or should he ask permission? I've taken this girl out four times and, still haven't kissed her goodnight. I think she wants ;to have me kiss her but Tm not sure. What should I do? — Billy. Dear Billy: Sometimes a boy can ask a girl for a goodnight kiss without even speaking a word. In your case I think if you ask the girl, you'd be better off. Some girls won't kiss a boy good night even after a dozen dates but most will after several dates — and you qualify. starting at 1 p.m. Yungeberg and Quinn, auctioneers, Security State Bank, Algona, clerk.
