Still a further factor in the Benny situation was the -possible effect NBC opposition might have.

DEAR MARY HAWORTE: For more "than three years Grant and I have been very much in love; but we can't be together except in summers and school holidays, because his collegers hundreds of miles from mine; and .our separations are filled with letters; longing and tears. Although I get good grades as a matter ol pride, I am not interested in school work. All I -want is to marry Grant,.and now that many of. my friends are marrying, Jt has become an obsession with me. No two people ever loved each other more, believe me. Both of us are unusually popular, but -the .only time we are really happy is when we are together.

All that keeps me from urging marriage 'now is the fact that his wonderful family wants us to wait, naturally; and I don't want to hurt them. Girl Declares Tension Is Mutual I would like to wait, 'too—what girl doesn't dream, of. a lovely .wedding?—but I want "him so terribly (and it'stentirely mutual) that I've thought a -lot lately about leaving home and getting a job near his school, just-to be near him. Grant wants,that, too; he says he knows his work would improve, because he would have some inspiration and would be happy. • . • . So far we have -controlled our emotions (with -effort) when together, because, we don't want anything which society regards as -sordid- in our love; but now I am beginning to wonder if we shouldn't take, whatever happiness, however short- lived, that we can get. .Would I be a fool to marry him now, come what may? 'Or get a job near him? I am uncertain, so please F. C. worried and answer soon. This Isn't Love; It's Apprehension'' DEAR P. C.: Your recital of wanting Grant terribly, controlling your emotdons (with effort) when together, feeling unable to live apart from him until he completes his schooling, etc., add up to evidence that -you are distraught with sex hunger and fear of losing bis interest; but-this" psychological stew doesn't. deserve to be called love, however. * . The potential of love may exist between you and Grant; but if so, you've bungled it br.dly and given it a morbid.bias, introducing a chronic state o'l "lovesickness" (on your par; at least), by trading on mutual trust aild rapport to deal pretty recklessly in "love-making" as opportunity affords—a shortsighted pastime that downgrades unmarried love to the lowest common denominator of interest and leaves the participants vaguely melancholy and emotionally tense in retrospect. Also, in this process youVe lost a lot of self-respect, so gradually that you hardly 'know what's missing; and this elusive sense of loss contributes to your fear of losing Grant's allegiance. Thus your -urgent desire to stampede him into marriage now, or else get a Job near his school, in order to be near him, signifies damaged self confidence in relation to Grant. Plaintiff Needs Adult Confidante Because you've drifted Into a habit of giving disproportionate emphasis • to physlc-,1 attraction, you've developed cohcomitMit, jeal. ous anxiety lest separation expose Grant to rival divertissements that might w'ean him completely away from you, and consequently you are figuratively ' on your knees, suing him with letters, longing and tears— and this is the problem that calls for treatment. In my opinion, .it were folly to try either to dragoon -Grant-into marriage now, or to quit school and seek a job near him. Either course would burden him with defensive resentment as time went 0:1, and his family and yours lambasted you both. What you need ?n-the circumstances an adult confidante, somebody who will listen attentively to your self-doubts and thoughtfully help you discard the false notion that sex-appeal is trump card in tie game of hearts.

While belnpr duly appreciative or the nnc worK done by our clergy, I hopo this Case Record serves llitu Morns' bumble brie today to v.-aken some or them Trora their luilaby sermonizing. CASE S-255: Morris L.., aged 32, is a'building contractor. •• "Dr. Crane, our church music Is pretty good." lie admitted, "but I just can't stay awake during, the sermon: ."Maybe I am to blame, but I have no diriiculty sitting through a double-feature at our'neighborhood movie. "Our clergyman drones along'in a lullaby voice so that .1 simply cannot follow him. His very movements on the platform remind me of slow motion movies. •Td give a $20 bill -If a bumble bee -would sting him some Sunday just so I could see him pepped up for once.

So professional performers turn on (their evident show of energy and vitality, .even though they may be worn out or 111 at the time. A clergyman- Is a salesman of religious Ideas and ethical concepts in the same mann-er that a life Insurance salesman purveys insurance policies. But how long'do you suppose an insurance salesman would hold his job if he put Us prospects to sleep within 15 minutes? How To Fill the Churcli There is -a. wise old saying to the effect that you. must first fill the pulpit if you wish to fill the church. Among our clergymen are-to be found the topnotch orators in America. But you can also find some of the worst speakers in tile world in the same profession. There are plenty of places for religious this world, bul.if after a yeai-'s pastorate they still don't know how to nmi:e an Ir.lcr- is esting address, then their place most certainly not in the pulpit. ( There they are ' actually driving When an audience goes to aleep,s adherents away from the church. A is usually an indictment of the noor salesman mav thus be worse it is usually person on the platform. For a vital, dynamic speaker, will not Jet his audience sleep. We listeners tend to Identify ourselves with Lhe man 'on tho platform, so ii' he is bubbling over^ with energy and vitality, then We tend to grow likewise. However, if he intones in monotonous syllables and, is as'inert as "Laay Bones—"sleepin". in the sun", then the audience tends to drift 0-1 into the arms of Morpheus. One of the cardinal principles o. r public platform strategy is that the performer must a.: least act enthusiastic, energetic, full of pep. It takes a Uvewlre on th« platform to electrify aji audience! , Many professional spenkers t ,don'l-. always - feel so dynamic, but they force themselves' to act the part, at least while they stand before their audiences. Enthusiasm Is 1 Contagious Did you ever observe an orchestra' leader come upon the stage to lead Ills musicians? Does such a leader drag along, listlessly? No, indeed!' .He rapidly strides forward, maybe turning a handspring to show his exhuberance of spirits. .Frequently he doesn't feel so, exuberant, bxit it is an axiom of the stag^ that if you want to keep chc poor salesman may thus be worse than none at all. But any intelligent man can soon become a good speaker If he'll Just down t5 the of his audience and take his head ,out ol'| the clouds long enough to learn the; "anecdotal method." which Jesus always employed.
