DEAR MARY HAWORTH: When our family moved to this tosvn I wasn't yet 12 years old. but I was enrolled in the seventh grade. In so doing, I skipped three-fourths of the school term; and it seems that from now on, I will always be younger than my classmates. This makes a problem. Now I am in the eighth grade; and when I went back to school this fall, the girls in my class were talking about their clothes for this term. Then they started comparing notes about their second pair of pumps (for dress-up), their lipstick and earrings. When they included me in the conversation, I had to lie and say that my mother had got me the same things; But the truth is, my mother seems to think I am too .young to wear these tilings — even .though the pumps I want have only two- inch heels; and the lipstick is a medium shade; and the small earrings would be for Sundays. My mother says that I am "just 12," and that I should dress "like a child of 12:" Do you think my mother should act this way? All of my classmates are 13, and most will be 14 soon; and no child wants to dress like a 12-year-old when the rest of her classmates are 14, and dress Iikel4-year-olds. I would wear the pumps only occasionally, on Sundays. Please give me your opinion on whether I should .dress as a 12- year-old child or as an eighth grader; and'please answer soon. -H. C. Girl'g Problem Is In Her Mind DEAR H..C.: As Shakespeare said, "There's nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so." You have a problem of dress in relation to classmates, only because you think you have. If you were, a happy-go-lucky, self-confident, tomboyish sort of girl, who couldn't be bothered with lipstick, earrings and pumps with heels, you'd get along fine with the dressy crowd at school —just being yourself. That I can testify for sure — speaking from personal knowledge of schoolgirls together. I have in mind a group situation, recently, in which the girls were just entering their-teens; and all but one were .competitively fashion-conscious, with emphasis .on feminine frippery such as lipsticks, earrings, "heels"'(as they say), and date- bait dress. As I say,-there was this one girl (a trifle younger than the rest) who stuck to her. own easy style through junior high school — without "vanity touches" such as lip stick, earrings,.'etc., when the others -"dressed up" for social events in which she was included. And she was always as popular as a girl could wish, was affectionately known by a charming nickname —and was good at games and ftud- ies too. Dress Plays Part In Giving Poise On the, other hand. I know an other girl who became very interested in big-girl dres* at a rather prematurely early age. Between 12 and 14.- she had a yen to dress more like a 16-year-old — to wear high heels, lipstick, curvaceous high-style modes, etc. Her mother, sympathetically aware of a childish effort to an nex social self-confidence via "older" dress — and humorously touched by the outlandish unsuitability of the child's clothes-preference ( at that age) — put aside; her own good taste, and permitted the child to please herself in some selections. No harm came of the mother's accommodating policy — maybe because the mother was mentally on her toes, governing and nur-j luring the girl's development, while also giving her leeway for hopeful, experimental' self-assertiveness. But the child didn't improve her looks by the garb she chose, though she may have enjoyed a big season of self-esteem, thanks to her' mother's understanding spirit. Good parents must use their own common sense, related to their particular circumstances, in giving heir children helpful rearing. So can't advise you what your mother should do about you. However, I think if a child of mine were to bring this very prob- em to me, I'd try to help her see, 'irst,' the cowardice of lying .— which is a very childish trait indeed. And then I believe I might allow her the pumps, the earrings and lipstick.(if I could afford), to put her on a style-par with classmates — supposing the classmates are nice people.—M. H.
