J u n i o r s , Seniors Will Be " Judged in Pool ,, Tuesday. Women and girls will be given an opportunity by the Cerro Gordo ·county chapter of the American Red Cross to try the life-saving testa for senior and juniors Tuesday afternoon and evening at the Y. W C A pool. These tests are planned especially for those who' have been receiving instruction from Miss Ruth Starks at her regular life saving classes each Wednesday during- the past five mouths, but any who wish to re-pass their tests at this time may do so by permission of Miss Starks or the Red Cross office. No Instruction. Requirements for passing the lifesaving tests are that juniors and seniors must have received at least eight hours of instruction by an instructor qualified by the Red Cross. No instruction will be given during the tests. Juniors must be at least 12 years of age, and seniors from 17 years up. These tests will be in charge of Edward Babcock, who has served the chapter as one of the examiners at the life-saving tests held at the Clear Lake beach last summer. He will be assisted by Miss Starks and the chapter will be represented by the secretary, -Agnes Helbig. Begin at 4 o'clock.

It is a requirement of the American Red Cross that all life-savers must re-pass their tests' once each year in order to be in good standing. With a pool. to practice in in Mason City, and with special hours on Wednesday offered by Miss Starks for life-saving instructfon the next few months will find many students re-passing their tests so they may be permitted to wear the Red Cross emblem in their swimming suits.

Do you believe that a certain planet rules you? I read an article that said that anyone born between April 20 and May 20 should marry someone born between those same dates. "Virginia, I am in love witn a man born March 5, and he thinks a. lot of me. I don't know where to look or turn. I am so blue to think I love someone this article says to avoid. "Would you advise me to listen to that article or not? I don't want to break up with this man because he thinks what I do and say is perfect and he.will.do_anytliing tor .me. He;; wants \a hoine^ino. He isn't a beauty, but" it' isn't beauty I am caring about. It is the love he has for me. Do you think I am right?" Absolutely, little sister. The man you love is a great deal older than you, of course, but if your ideals are the same and your tastes similar, and, above all, if you love one an- ·other, I certainly would risk marriage xvith him. Those things count more than anything else in the making of a happy marriage. Forget about the astrologers, and after you and the boy friend are married, if you happen to disagree, don't decide that they were right and that you really are not mated, but make up your mind that your love for your husband and your constant effort to understand and appreciate him shall help you to make a success of your life together. I presume I risk the wrath of those who believe sincerely in tha predictions of the stars for guidance by saying this, but I earnestly believe it and so advise you. * * * WORRIED WIFE: I have that; about your problem a good deal auci wondered what I could advise. I don't believe you are going to help your husband overcome his fault bj letting him think you trust him, when, as a matter of fact, you don't I think the matter should be talked over very earnestly. He should acknowledge his weakness and know just what is being said about him. He should also be able to see that he has no right to involve this young girl in scandal--which is what will happen if things keep on as you say they are going. You seem so fair-minded and tolerant that I don't believe, he will think you are "jealous-minded," as you say, If you tell him that for the sake of the children, you, himself and the girl, it would be much bel- ter if he was careful to always have you present when he is with her. ind that she should not be invited to accompany you on trips so frequently. The same rule applies to any girl who comes to the house. * * * He can't help his nature, but be can help his lack of self-control, ami he should -for his wife's and children's sake, as well as his own. BUMFUZZLED: I think it would be perfectly permissable for you to write to the boy friend and tell him hat your parents no longer object o you going with him. And under he circumstances it is all right for the girl to write the first note after a breakup. The boy should be the one to send the valentine. BLUE EYES: Maybe you can win the boy's mother over in time. Why not try awhile longer? If you cannot, maybe it would be happier for both of you to quit. America's isn't the first government of that kind. Robin Hood took from the rich and gave to the poor. -- Kcwanec Star-Courier.
