TROUT CREEK The opossum has lived i n America for 80 million years, surviving its contemporaries, CASE W-447: Gwen J., aged 17. wants to elope "Dr. Crane." her father began, "Gwen Is normally a smart girl but she Is nmv infatuated with a nitwit kid who couldn 1 *; raise the price of a marriage license. "He is a coddled son of parents who have Indulged h i s every whim. "But he is only 17 ancl not yet out of high school, so they would be forcecl to live with one or other set of in-laws. "Yet we can't argue with Gwen. She acts as if she is hypnotized! So what else can we, do to break up this very unwise' teen-age infatuation?" i PUPPY LOVE HYPNOSIS | Actually, during a puppy love affair, both parties are in stage of semi-hypnosis. And under hypnosis, logic avails little. Infatuated young folks ior oldsters, too» are enslaved by a general "Image." They are not conscious of details and little practical items like how to pay rent or buy groceries. But subconsciously they arc aware of these vital factors. So the secret of breaking up an unwise Infatuation is to let the victim shatter her o w n "image" or romantic "halo" she has created around the b o v friend. You parents should thus stop your open opposition, for this just makes Gwen recite alresh all the glowing arguments in favor of her choice And the more she r e peat s them, the more she will tend to sell herself on her boy friend. So Gwen will just build up MORE devotion to her hoy friends as she rushes to his defense. Instead of attack her boy friend, let her invite him into your home. Be cordial and friendly so she is not on the f.'efensive. He will begin to show many evidences of failure to harmonize In your environment if he is definitely of another culture Also, employ the sttai d a r d psychological strategy call e d the "Yes But" technique. "Yee, marriage would 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 a ye&r at college? "Then you will have had a chance to enjoy the footb a 1J season and all the other excitement of college folKa. so you will not feel so 'left out 1 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. Bay 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 start rating her sweetheart, just out of sheer curiosity, • But In so doing, she will begin to shatter the "halo" sh« previously evolved around his head. Many fathers have report e d success In thus breaking up these premature Infatuations by the methods outlined above, and without incurring any hostility from the parties lo such an unwise romance. So—send for the 200-point "Tests for Sweethearts," enclosing u long stamped, return envelope, plus 20 cents. (Always write to Dr, Crane in care of this newspaper, enclosing a long stamped, addressed envelope ancl 20 cents to cover typing ancl printing costs when you send for one of his booklets.! (Copyright by The Hopkln* Syndicate, Inc.) Bill to Aid Aged Signed WASHINGTON (AP) — clent Johnson has signed a bill he predicts will orlng "a real new day" for Americans 65 or older. The $i7.5-inlllion authorization bill sets up an Administration on Aging in the Welfare Department, with the aim of coordinating federal activities for the aging under one roof.

U.S. officials think not. They believe that unless Hanoi decides the war must end, the Viet Cong could go on fighting indefinitely. This is the reason for raids on North Viet Nam and other pressure on Hanoi. U.S. officials feel the Viet Cong cannot go on taking staggering casualties in South Viet Nam without bringing in massive numbers of troops from the North Vietnamese army. Eventually, top Americans believe, even the half-million-man North Vietnamese army will be bled to death in South Viet Nam. If this happens, Hanoi might decide to call for Chinese reinforcements for defense of North Viet Nam in place of its absent army.
