They call my name, very drawn-out, and thei laugh, which embarrasses me so much that 1 sometimes wish weren't alive. • I don't talk rmicl and therefore don't have manj friends. <• Once I heard, through my sis ter, that a girl friend and her eld er brother, talked.about me; and the girl told my sister that the boj . thought 1 seemed like a nice Chrislian girl, and he pitied because 1 1 don't have dates. He doesn't go to my school; he sees me only at church. In public it seems that I just can't attracl people to myself. . Yes, I know it starts at home. The person who really-gripes-me is mother. I doubt thai she has said one good thing about me since 1 was a baby. H seems I always do the wrong thing. Whatever I do she finds something I haven'l done and gripes about that. I am just awakening to the facl that dad isn't as bad as she makes out. When she is. berating one ol us kids, if dad says anything, she .urns on him and says "Slurs! A!: [ can gel out of you is slurs! You just shut up! Who does all the work around here anyway?" When he just sits there,' with an all-knowing, pitying, mocking grin, she gradually runs out of things lo say, and lurns on us again. Finds A Few Bright Spati This example, a common occurrence, doesn't encourage us to be little angels. Home is just one big wheel of kids bickering, parents gelling mad, and bang! A big quarrel! Over and over again. Al night mom screams and yells and runs from room to room, turning jff'lighls, Irying to gel us to bed. If one light bulb is on, the whole : amily can see it. so we all have .0 go lo bed at once. However, what I have written is .he bad picked out of the good. There are a few bright spots in my days. I read a lot, and I read he Bible daily. Mom sees every jook I bring in, and whenever she catches me reading, she tells ne to get up and get to work... : have to close no\v, but I hope vou've got enough of the picture o tell me how to improve my re- lalions al school, so I will be more friendly and not mocked. Objective Look At Family Fret DEAR G. C.: I sympathize wilh you and your mother too. But your father's mocking grin, when she blows her top, doesn't build him up in my estimation. However, maybe .he feels caught between the devil and the deep blue sea, when she sounds off — knowing that she has a problem in Ihe houseful of kids, and that the children have a problem in her furious tension. It seems she suffers from chronic exhaustion — and constilu- lional inadequacy for the burdens she carries. Obviously she is overwrought, as the usual thing, almost lo the breaking point, due to the tedium and nervous wear- and tear of bearing and rearing a good-size" family, in a home situation devoid of restorative privacy. And in financial -circumstances that provides little or no vacation or recreation for her, I suppose. In such cases, neither mother nor children are to blame, really. And a first rate dad could help, if he would, by cracking down on the kids as necessary, and taking the housework upon himself and them occasionally, to give mom a full day's rest—say on a Saturday or Sunday. Such proof that they care about her, and regard her lovingly as a worthwhile person—worth cherishing—would make her easier to live with, 1 think. It could make a big difference in the home atmosphere —and do much lo develop thai j friendly temperament thai you || wish you had. \Opliinintic View Of Situation Now, aboul yourself: You are on. exceptionally attractive girl, I ' f79c "f 83c Swift's Premium HAMS Wholt or ShnnV HnlF 12 to 16 Ib.
