POOR PA By CLAUDE CALLAN " Cousin Ellen's daughter Fay has quit wcarjn' an enBajement ring, but her beau isn't mad. The jeweler is the one who got mad an' look the ring back. Mar y Haworth's Mqil . Editor's Note: r.cjectcd by mother •untl til-behaved toward -father's second wife, nrlrl, 11, .constitute? Jamlly problem; is -boarding home advisable? /DEAR MARY HAWOKTH:. My husband's daughter Beverly, 11, spends here -summers with us since we.: married and returns :o her mother (who has har custody) lor the schooi term. Her mother, .-though married again, works continuously for funds to. spend on clothes, beauty care; etc., and consequently -Beverly has had very little home life such as a young child needs. ' She is disobedient, .quarrelsome and Impudent with her father and me, can't, hold friends .either at school or here, seems always»to have a chip >on her shoulder, and if we try conversationally to show her where she is wrong, she shrugs us off'with V "I can't help it." I have two -children by a former marriage, ,too; find In addition pan and I have two lovely children of our -own. .Also, wo- are -expecting another baby next,' Spring and I must have a major operation soon after —•all'o£ .which .is -background for-the Immediate problem. Child'sMother Has Final Say Early in October. Beverly's mother sent' her to' us to- stay until Christmas, prefacing this with a long-distance telephone call. Now our home, ordinarily peaceful even with four children, is a bedlam of quarrels-and falsehoods; and the situation is making nervous wrecks of Dan and rr.e, . : In the circumstances, Tve feel we can't call 'on Beverly's mother to take 'her, because -we've.learned 1 that the-mother has' left: .her husband tentatively,'is'seeing other men and inducing -younger matrons to drlak and carouse with her. But something- must' be done, lor Beverly's, sake —•, straighten- her out — and -also to protect our, youag children from ' her behavior. She even fights with them. ,It -has. been suggested tl^t we place.her in a_boarding home. Is this a'good idea? .I'm not sure, the mother would consent; and she, being ; the guardian, would have final-saj',, of course; but Dan and f. would be grateful for your comment. E. T. Family Influences Injurious To Girl. DEAH E. T.: It's, certainly tnie that Beverly's plight calls to high heaven, for. succor. She should be rescued from her "rejected" 'status. Both. In her mother's custody and yours. . Almost any spirited child, similarly shunted from pillar .to post twixt mother and stepmother, equally Vexed by her wretched personality and need of care, would "become progressively furtive, defiant, defensive and difficult over the years. . What chance has sl-.c to relax and "be herself." .constructively, in wholesome outflow ol >.appy loving relatedness to anybody? Emotional energies must -be spent, if not iii love, then in hate; and parents, but especially mothers or their proxies, by their innermost feelings about a. child, .determine which attitude —love or hate — the child shall .take toward intimates and society. Stepmother's Soul Isn't Syini>alhelic . .Granted that Beverly's mother has failed her .terribly, still what have you done to repair the deficit? Search the record of .your, feelings about Beverly and face the fact that, all the while going- through motions of including tier in the family circle-— as a wifely bid for Dan's esteem — your essential attitude has been .one .fo; taut intolerance. Beverly feels this in her, an dlt's 'tragically -true that] she can't help how she acts in consequence. You've never emotionally identified, yourself with her: never sensed sympathetically the fierce distress — the fears, anxiety, loneliness — that underlie and animate her out- law'behavior. You've, seen her only as a nuisar.ce, to be adroitly underlined as such in- Dan's eyes; and what's he doing for his child? Looking to. you in vain, it seems, for redemptive mother-care of her, and matching .your galled reactions with .anger-symptoms of his 'own. It seems a-shabby device to railroad Beverly to a boarding home: but if your soul is too petty, too engrossed in "me and mine" lo vouchsafe her mother-love according to her 1 need, she'd, be better off In impersonal surroundings than in your household, I think. However; for Beverly's sake, I'd favor a Rlrl's boarding school as the best face- saving substitute for "home" in family emergency. • - ' M.H. • Marj* Hawortrt" counsels throtlpli her column, not by mall or personal interview.

Men Want Versatile Wives At' 17 or 18, a fellow may be enamoured of a girl's pretty face and her cute imitations of some Hollywood actress's speech or mannerisms. , But these things are r.ofc enou to hold a man who is 25 or,30, for sexual attraction palls unless there is mental stimulation and mutual social interests, to tie them, together inseparably.
