(Mis- Musall, 10:45; 19 Are Employed At New Factory Allsports and Marine of Michigan, Inc., headed by Douglas Johnson, formerly of Park Falls, Wis., recently started a plant in the former Hard i n g School in South Bessemer. The corporation started fixi n g the building to adjust to the needs of the type of work to be done there May 12. A week later, workmen moved in all the equipment and machinery needed to start work, and manufacturing of some of the products was started by the employes on May 25. It being the slow season tor production, although the good .season for selling the produ c t s, 3!) workers are now empl o y e d there. Johnson is expecting" to . hire more workers for the bet: ter production months com i n g . up in the fall and winter. Johnson also is planning bring in more machinery ; production material to fill I spacious rooms that are empty in the building. The main products manuf a c- tured at the plant are assorted insulated containers made ' with a substance called polystyrene thermo-core with a vln y 1 outershell that took the corpora; tion eight months to devel o p. I The plant also produces fib e r- . glass billiard cues with the cen- i ter core made of weighted plastic resins resulting in accur a t e balance and weight, with tough- r.ess and durability that would • outlast most wooden cues. The ' corporation also makes a joint, ed, telescopic fiberglass fishing- pole, the only pole of its kind , en the market; two types of buoys, with two sizes in marker i buoys and one size in mowing buoys, and boat fenders. fo and the still The opossum has lived i n America for 80 million years, surviving its contemporaries, including dinosaurs. (iwen's case will probably d i s I ti r I) 1,000,000 parents this year so learn how to , handle it. Otherwise, y o n will very likelv sec an unwise infatuation terminate in an elopement, foil o w e d within a year or two by a traffic divorce. So semi for the Kitting- Scale h e I o w which is helpful "ammunition." CASE W-447: Owen J., aged 17. wants to elope "Dr. Crane," her father began. "Owen is normally a smart girl but she i.s nr-w infatuated with a nitwit kiri who couldn 1 ' raise the price ol a marriage license. "He is a coddled son of parents who have indulged h i s every whim. "But he is only 17 and not yet out of high school, so they would be forced to live with one or other set of in-laws. "Yet we can't argue w i t. h Owen. She acts as if she is hypnotized! So what else can 'we do to break up this very unwise teen-age infatuation'.'" PI IM'Y LOVE HYPNOSIS Actually, during a puppy love affair, both parties are in a stage of semi-hypnosis. And under hypnosis, logic avails little. Infatuated young lolks ior oldsters, tooi arc enslaved by a general "image." They are not conscious ol details and little practical items like how to pay rent or buy groceries. , But subconsciously they are aware of these vital factors. So the secret ot breaking up an unwise infatuation i.s to let the victim shatter her o w n "image" or romantic "halo" she has created around the h u v friend. You parents should thus stop your open opposition. Cor this just makes Gwcn recite alvesh all the glowing arguments in favor of her choice And the more she r e p c a i s them, the more Mie will tend to sell herself on her boy friend. So Owen win )ust build up MORE devotion to her hoy friends as she rushes to his defense. Instead of attar k her b o y friend, let her invite him into your home. Be cordial and friendly so she is not on the refensive. He will begin 'o show many evidences of failure to harmonize in your environment if he is definitely of another culture Also, employ the sti.n d a r d psychological strategy call e c! the "Yes But" technique. "Yee, marriage ,vould be wonderful," you can assent, thus taking a lot of wind out of their ; sails, "but why don't, you wait till you have had n year at college? "Then you will hnve had a chance to enjoy the 1'ootb a 1J season and all the other excitement of college folKS. so you will not led so 'left out' In later life when your present friends talk about college " A further aid for shatter! n R "puppy love hypnosis" Is to leave the "Rating Scale for Sweethearts" on Owen's dresser. Say nothing but let her thumb through this list of the 50 most common faults of boys as well as their 50 most common virtues. This will cause her to atari rating her sweetheart, just out of sheer curiosity, But in so doing, she will begin to shatter the "halo" sh« previously evolved around his liend. Many fathers have reported success In thus breaking up these premature infatuations by the methods outlined above, and without incurrlm? any hostility from the parties to such an unwise romance. So -send for (he 200-point "Tests for Sweethearts," enclosing n long stamped, return envelope, plus L'O cents. 'Always write to Dr Crane In care ot this newspaper, enclosing- a long stamped, addressed envelope and '20 cents to cover typing and printing costs when you send for one of his booklets.!
