Dear Dan: What is your opinion of blind dateS ; My best friend knows I'm a little shy around boys and is always getting her boy friend to fix me up With a boy I don't know for a:double-date. I think I've had 'about 10 blind dates In my, life; and not one of them ever turned out the way I thought it should have. Six or seven of the boys thought I was love starved and tried'to get me to park. One or two others tried to give me the idea they were doing me a big favor by dating me. Are all blind dates like the ones I've mentioned? — Dora. , ' •.'•'•' Deer Dora: There are some good blind, dates .walking around but because they are blind, they'can't see you! I gUe^s. Blind dating is all right if you want to take "pot luck" but I don't approve of it and I wouldn't allow my daughter to accept such a date. A girl should at least know the boy she's going'to spend the evening with and dating blindly is sometimes Very unwise and dangerous, and always silly. . • ,, . •...'•• 1 * . • • »'• . • ( . • Dear Dan: Is a boy of: 14 too young to:start.shaving?

Dear Shaggy: I always say age has nothing whatsoever to do with shaving. If you need a shave at 14, see if your father won't, .agree. The same applies to girls and their legs. If they believe their logs could use a razor or an electric shaver and their mothers second the idea, that's all! it will take. . • » * * THE MAIL BAG — , Maury: Based on the driving you do .with your friend and your girls, your share of the gas bill shouldn't be less than a dollar per date. However, don't think you should fill up the gas tank just because your buddy may have that idea. : Community Club At Ledyard Has SALilS BOOKS — Upper Der Moines Pub. Co., Algona.
