MONDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1955 FIVE If «tf ?orlfi V Mft/ Mail Editor's Note: Man. 27. anxious to love and marry, can't get interest- td in Kirls; Why? DEAR MARY HA WORTH: I feel a little foolish writing to you. I am a man 27, and (or the past 10 years I've had the care of my parents and two sisters and am used f.o making my own decisions and giving advice. But now I have a problem that I can't seem to solve, and I am asking advice for myself. Before my youngest sister graduated from school a while hack and out to earn her own way, I was too busy making a living to have time for girls. When I met a girl who might appeal to me seriously, would avoid her to prevent it. Now, however, with only my parents to care for, I feel that 1 can support a wife; But the problem is- that I have so long barred myself from social life with women that 1 can't seem to get interested in any girl. I am beginning to worry 'that I om incapable of Several girls have told-me they are in love with me—which only gives me a trapped feeling, be cause no matter how 1 try, 1 can't be in love with them. I don't drink or smoke, but always have a good time socially, and when I am dating, I 'make certain the girl enjoy herself too. But as soon as I am home I get that same old depressing sense of utter futility. Everything seems so meaningless. I've had men say they'd like to be me 'just for a day. I would-gladly trade places with the ugliest' of them—because they possess something I lack, namely, love for a woman: someone who needs and depends upon them. I would appreciate your comment:-but pl°ase.don't refi. me to a psychiatrist, as I would never go to" one. Perhaps I just haven't met the right girl; but I've been out with a lot of them lately. All kinds. D. L. falling in love—for I have had plenty of chances lately. . . Family Policy plenty He's Expert. In Lovemaking Since I started taking-pains with my appearance, I am often complimented on my looks and physique I am a good skater; and have taken dancing lessons and become a smooth dancer. I have no trouble making conversation and am told I have .an unusually "infectious" laugh. And in recent months of dating I have become practically an expert at making love. • ADVERTISEMENT Good Man to Know at This Season ED BURNS If you don't already know this man, you should. As the friendly, cheerful manager of Aetna Finance Co., he liRes to make folks happy with extra cash when they need it. "I like folks", he said, "and want everyone here and in nearby towns to see me if they could use $50 to $1500 cash." Any steadily employed person may get money from Aetna for shopping, personal expenses, bills or other purpose. The Aetna "Bill-Pay- •sr" plan provides ample cash to consolidate bills and reduce payments. Fast, while- ydu-wait service is another Aetna feature.

L.: Perhaps the difficulty is that your whole family's attitude toward living is too mechanistic. Possibly the policy is to try to "control" existence in terms of "a place for everything, and everything in its palce"-~as regards experience. And maybe the family .doesn'l include love as an essential pail of; but thinks of it, rather, as fairly tale stuff! as "ou'l of this world"—or as a luxury that can wait until.all else is met. (according to the family's idea ol "duty done"). In - your case, for example, il seems you've operated on the theory' that you were righteously doing your duty—and properly letting love wait—in taking care ol parents and helping them provide your sisters with schooling. One wonders why your '"parents have let your life take this lopsided turn—of becoming gradually divorced from normal heterfsex- ual feeling.. And the only answer that occurs is—they aren't "alive" to the importance of warmhearted mutual love, as an indispensable factor in healthy human develop-: ment I take it your parents aren't dependent invalids. If they were, I think you would have said so. Hence the question: Why have .hey leaned upon you as their care- laker? Do they • reason that -children "owe everything" to parents and aren't entitled to lives of their own until the parents have ar- #330 Grumbocher Gainsborough Oil Set rived at something approximating Easy'Street? In short, are they anxiously self centered and blindly self-serving r due to being psychologically infai.- tile? Are you the emotional victim .of tint kind of family philosophy and family"atmosphere? Rearing Bereft) Of Hearty Love 1 am struck by your statements, to wit: "I-always have a , good time socially when-dating : . . but as soon'as I am home I get that old depressing sense of utter fu- tlity. Everything seems so meaningless—." This suggests a family situation bereft of the spark of positive love. With time to spare, you are increasingly hungry for significant ties—for true companionship keyed to sympathetic mutual appreciation. But unfortunately your unconscious—from which spontaneity springs—has no idea how to promote, .or how to belong to, that kind'of .alliance. Thus; even when "lovemaking," 'you are emotionally estranged from what 'you are doing. Arid your longtime solitary habits probably were sparked by frigidity of temperament—quite as much as by. "duty to parents." You should, have psychiatric help, to give, you the key to emotional liveness< and integrity.- You wouldn't' know the right girl if you were to meet her, in yoiu present state. Or rather say- there is no "right girl" for the psychologically impotent man. ' ' —M. H. Mary Haworth . counsels through her column, not by mail or personal interview.

'Solid Steam' Boilers gets a final accounting on the cost of the Frederick Street improve ment program. The least expensive way to do the first phase, he said, is to cut North George Street straight through to Bedford. By a more expensive route requiring the acquisition of the Potomac Produce Corporation property, the extension .could follow the B & 0 tracks and give access to Polk Street. The map shows the complete plan would follow the B & 0 railroad tracks in the rear of St. Patrick's Church, cut across Hay Street and go down an alley to Centre Street on the downtown side of the B & 0 viaduct. Mayor Eves said the route would give people an alternate way to get to Route 40 without crossing the railroad tracks and that the America's Laigeit Selling TOILET TANK BALL Noisy running toilets can waste over 1000 gallons of water a day.
