By VIRGINIA S LEE I am a great believer in modern youth, as perhaps those of you who follow the column have discovered. Occasionally I find myself raving a bit about the^ lack of responsibility in young people today, but I decide immediately that it is probably no worse than it was in other generations. And that there doubtless always will be some people who just naturally shed their responsibilities and leave .them for othersi. to bear.. .······*»-..; ... A letter tells of a married couple, the girl 17, the boy probably not much older. They have a baby. SBut they do not live together. The girl wife complains that her husband runs around with other girla and that she formerly went with another boy, but quit at her husband's request and promise , that he would give up the girls with whom he goes. He doesn't work because his parents don't want him to care for her and the baby. 'He could- get a good job, away from home, but evidently doesn't plan to take it. What can the young wife do in this case? BABY: Not much can be done in your case, Baby, unless you go to court or your family does for you, to compel your husband to support you and the baby. He is not so much to blame as his parents. Tiny should have taught him his responsibilities to a wife and chile! anO ohould not uphold him in his ao- tions. You can apply to the court to compel him to support you, or to have the marriage annulled. It would be best to take such action thru your nearest relative who is oi age. * * * DIMPLES: You are in a bad way. Dimples. Not only have you lost the boy friend, but your mother won't let you have boy friends..! don't know how you can win the boy back .if your mother won't let you go with boys. What did you do to make her forbid you to have bny friends ? Try to win her consent first, then maybe there will be some way to win your former friend back. * * * " JENNIE LEE:Of course you know what I think about your problem. If the boy friend is dissatisfied with you he prefers a different kind of a girl friend. And if you can't be ,that kind of a friend without lowering your ideals, why, you will be much happier in the end to let him go. I don't imagine that you will have much difficulty in gaining a friend who will love you as you aro ANXIOUS LOU: You might havo a parley with your husband and his mother and try to 'bargain with them that if you come back home your mother-in-law will go to visit. 'ier daughters for a time. It is certainly not fair to you to have her in your home all the time when she makes so much trouble between you ind your husband. If she insists on staying with you, you could take your case to a domestic relation:! court and get their advice or medi ation. No one can take your baby from you are an immoral woman, un- youa are an immoral woman, unfit to have the care of a child. 33 Licenses ^ Issued in January North Iowa Towns · Have Number of Weddings in Month.

Wish to Imitate Adults May Be Capitalized on in Children by Parents · By ALICE JTJDSON PBALE Two-year-old Ann' shiuaderefl when her"'mdther gave'her the new tonic which the doctor had prescribed. Since it would have to be taken all thru the winter months her mother decided to use · strategy. The medicine, being flavored with maple syrup was really quite palatable. Next evening she appeared with the bottle and spoon, pourert herself a liberal dose and with every evidence of pleasure swallowed it before Ann's wide eyed gaze. "It's good," said mother. "Good," echoed Ann, "then Ann wants some, too." Mother looked doubtful. "This is mother's bottle, but you can havo just a little bit." ' The baby took it, shivered again, but said with determination: "Good, very good." Three evenings in succession this! performance was repeated. On the fourth evening she no longer shivered, and her determined "good" had an authentic ring. She had acquired a taste for the prescribed medicine. The wish to imitate their elders is strong in most normal children. A little benevolent scheming, utilizing this tendency will often make a child clo gladly what he would otherwise do with the greatest resistance. Since most children must tak« medicine so often, it is well worth 'while to set up a pleasant attitude toward 'it whenever passible. Certain tonics such as cud 'liver oil. which most children at first dislike, become pleasant after they have acquired the taste. By rewards and the stimulus of adult example, we can help the child to accept something which he may later learn to like for its own sake. MR. AND MRS.

ACTRESS DISPLAYS FASHIONS ****^' Loretta Young, popular movie actresa. displaying the new spring fashions now the vogue In Hollywood. Program of 'Sittig Trio- Has Interest Variety of Selections to Be Played in Afternoon Concert. An interesting- combination of old and new music has been arranged on the program of the children'^ concert to be given by the Sittig trio Friday afternoon at the high school auditorium under the sponsorship of the Grade Teachers association. "Gavotte" by Jean Baptiste Loeit- let is the music which mountain peasants danced to and the distinc- :ive rhythm is preserved and made especially interesting by the use of a flute. · To Play Minuet. Another sort of dance, the minuet, known for its slow grace, will be recaUed in a Beethoven, minuet. "The Gypsy Rondo;" a -colorful fast moving number by Haydn is a direct contrast to the minuet. This particular rondo is reminiscent ot the native Croatian folk airs of which Haydn was fond and which he used considerably in his music. A composition of Sir Edward Elgar, English composer, "Salut d'Amour," which is one of his most popular works, will be played. Jt was written to Lady Elgar shortly before their marriage and its melody in three part form is of a sentimental character. Herbert Music Included The trio will also play "The Slumber Song" by Flaubert, "The Serenade" by Herbert, "Danse Phantas- tique" by Juon, "Waltz" by Brahms and "Marche Miniature," by Kreisler. Edgar H. Sittig, cellist, will play "Drink to Me Only With Thino Eyes," a melody as popular today as it was when first heard ' in Queen Elizabeth's day. He will also play "Tarantelle" by Squire. A strange superstition prevailed two centuries ago regarding the dance among Italians who believed that a person bitten by a tarantula could be cured by diincing the tarantella. Margaret Situs', violinist, will play "The Old Refrain" by Kreis- !er, "Gypsy Serenade" by Valdez anil "Mazurka" by VVeiniawski.
