Parents At A Loss Parents are In a peculiar position. Even though (hey hope In their hearts that Sue will meet a nice young man in collrge and fall In love—they can't tell her so. They've got to take the attitude that Sue Is going to college for one thing only—to get ah education and prepare herself to earn her own living. . Some parents even believe that, and figure that the girl who Is sent to college hasn't any business getting married until she has made use of her education by making a success on her own. But that isn't being realistic. Your best marrying years and your best marrying opportunity belong to you. Squander them—and you'll only blame yourself and your parents some day. So line yourself up -a husband while you have a whole college' to choose from.. And if you choose wisely, you'll have 'made one rlgril step toward making use of your education. No woman ever wastes a college education if she uses it to get herself a good husband and to make a good home for him and their children. Only One Arkansan Opposes Arms Bid Bill WASHINGTON.
