- ^-,, 8-Algono (lo.) Upper to* Maine* Thursday, March 9, 1961 You Can Address BOX 66 KALISPELL, MONTANA fof iwiwitU'r* - ! OOH Holligan Dear Dan: What can you do if someone comes to your house anc wants to go somewhere with you but whom no one likes or wants? , If you don't go With this person, you really hurt her feelings. li you do go with her, other kids don't want lo be your friends. This happened to me about a month ago. My friend and I were sitting on the bus and this one girl, one nobody likes, asked if she could sit With us. Of course, I said she could but my friend didn't want her with us and said, "We might as well let you sit here since •this is "be kind to animal week"! I thought this statement was terribly mean of her. Dan, what do you think about this? — Not to Blame. Dear N61 to Blame: I think yoUr "friend" had a terrific nerve and she owes the first girl an apology. How would this free talking girl like to-be in this other.girl's shoes, trying to make friends and getting slapped down with insults? You teen-agers dpn'.t have the right to tell someone of your own age, "You're no good and you'd better get lost." Believe me, if a girl of your age can't find friends among you kids, what can she do? * * * Dear Dan: During the New Year's vacation I Visited my grandmother who lives about 200 miles from here and she introduced me to a very nice boy. We had fun together and when he asked if he could write to me, I said he could. I Since then I've received a few letters from him but nothing 'lately. He hasn't answered any Of my recent letters and I'm wondering if I would be in the wrong if I phoned him the next time I visited my grandmother? — Sixteen. Dear Sixteen: You might not be in the wrong but phoning the boy wouldn't be a very wise move on your part. He's shown by his failure to write-that he's no longer interested in you and that should be that. Of course, if your grandmother should tell you he's been Seriously ill or something like that, that would be a different matter and a phone :cali wouldn't be out of place. * * • * Dear Dan: I'm 17 and have been dating this boy of 17 every weekend for the past two months. Actually he's never really said anything about going steady but he did 'give me an ID bracelet for a present. Do you think he considers we're going steady? I don't think so unless the.boy gives the girl a ring. How can I explain to him that I don't consider we're going steady until he gives me' a ring? — Mascoutah Teen. Dear Mascoutah Teen: I've often said it's not the gift but the statement that determines whether or not. a teen-age couple is going steady. For your own benefit, I think you should 'be outspoken enough to. ask the boy just what type of dating he considers you two are doing; : . Dea* Cent My mother is very active In ae'tfeYal women's orga zations and is always having coffee parties and meetings at ih'e house. When this happens, I'm Supposed to be the maid and 1 dc-fi'1 think it's fair because I've got my own friends and my own sociai life. I don't mind doing something but Mom is making me mad with all she demands. Don't you think she's .unfair? — Servant. Dear Servant: Maybe if you did a little bit more .and Mom asked you to do a little bit less, you two could 'reach a happy medium. You should help, of course. . . * * » THE MAIL BAG - ' N Gus: One-Third of your pay given at home wouldn't br^ak you or be unreasonable. Bell Telephone Annual Report Released Here More telephones and more calls, coupled with the largest construction program in the company's history, highlights the an- \ual report of the Northwestern Bell Telephone Co., released today, according to John Claude, manager of the Algona toloohone iffice. Northwestern Bell provi- les service in 646 local areas in owa, Minnesota. Nebraska, Norh and South Dakota. By the end of 1960, telephones in the five-state area totaled 2,514,701, an increase of 138,439 than in use during 1959 — and there were about 12,000,000 calls per day placed on those phones. Long distance use of phones in the five states was up 6^ percent. Mr Claude pointed out other interesting facts about the company's 1960 business-year, including: payroll costs totaled $134 million; construction expenditures hit $106 million, $21 million more than in 1959 and by far the largest in history; operating and other taxes totaled $88.4 million; and earnings for the year were 5.95 percent, related to pre- sent value of, equipment. : There were 84 new buildings built and additions to 21 others and a million miles of wire, in stormproof cable were added, j Among the new services, and facilities introduced were the Princess telephone and home in* terphone system. Bell laboratories also perfected an electronic artificial larynx to provide voice for persons who have lost their physical ability to speak. '"^I'Atir lowsng/ Including Ray rrioM Bailey, Cliftton, . Robert Barta, Cedar Rapids, MfS 'Melva Pals, Iowa Falls, and 'William Pepper, Spencer, were, among Northwestern Bell employees cited for acts of outstanding per< sonal service during emergencies during 1960. Dr. James & Itilton, president of Iowa State Univer 1 - sity\ was elected director in May, 1960 to succeed Edwin Mulock,of Des Moihes who had served' bn the board for 24 years. According to Mr Claude, the company's plans for even more construction during 1961 might hinge upon costs involved'in repairing damage to lines and other equipment during the blizzard and ice storm Feb. 18. Damage ran high in some areas. A banker tells a bad joke and nobody says anything about it, nit just let a comedian try-to; pass bad check! (Toastmaster's'Bul- etin).
