The running no's*., the hacking TIPS cough, the sore throat and weeping eyes and the bronchial wheeze are not only the most unattractive conditions imaginable, but just about the most miserable. Regardless of all of the amazing discoveries of science, the cause of colds remained a mystery for years. It is suspected that a virus is the culprit and that the "offender is always present in the throat but does not attack until our resistance is weakened by some factor. Other bacteria such as pneumonia may also 'be present but get the upper hand only after the tissues and membranes have become susceptible to them because of a cold. Runs its Course Regardless of what one does, a cold usually runs its course. The main thing is to avoid complications. The treatment is much the same as ever. You should go to bed, eat a light diet,- drink liquids copiously. Antihistamines seem to relieve some folks, but these "should be taken only when your doctor prescribes them. If your symptons persist • past the usual length of time for a cold, if your -fever rjsos or you have any unusual occurrences, you should call your physician. An ounce of prevention and care is well worth -- --—- - , ,., while.

I have quoted in this column the fact that a large dose of vitamin A, if taken at the first sign of a cold, works like magic with some people. Others do not respond to this therapy. It-does no one any good after the 'cold has gotten a real hold. You might ask your doctor about this.

At this point, however, I'm just burned up. When I read the letter from the woman who referred to children, as '"brats" and "Ragamuffins" that did it. I'm a nurse in fine children's polio ward at the County hospital. Too bad you "mothers who complained about the neighbor kids can't see the little tots from nine months to 10 years of age—all in iron lungs and wheel chairs. •You'd bite your tongues. And those, of you who resent ushering kids to the toilet, wiping noses and putting up with' the shoutjng, ought to thank almighty God that YOUR youngsters CAN run 'and yell, and have their friends over. You'd change_ your tune if you spent one afternoon with the pathetic little-creatures who struggle to draw a breath or move a limb. The mothers of THESE .children would give anything to trade places with you. Any takers? — n. C. an R. N. * * * Dear Ann: All my life I've dreamed of marrying a doctor. I am 20 years old and a high school graduate with above-average intelligence. At present I have a fairly good job as a receptionist in an insurance office. I would appreciate any suggestions you could offer along this line as it's becoming an obsession with me.--! WAINNA 'MEDIC Sorry, we're fresh out of doctors. If you have a yen for Men In White why not try to get a job as a receptionist in a hospital or take uip nurse's training? You'-ll find most of the doctors are married, but perhaps you can snag a stray uncommitted intern. Lotsa luck. . (P. S. Keep your job. They work for practically nix.) * * * Dear Ann: Some close Mends are having a problem with then- oldest son. He's a real juvenile delinquent and has been in trouble with the, law four times in the last two years. Recently he got into a serious •scrape and although he was not guilty of the crime, he was present. His father has come to the conclusion that the boy is no good. He feels the .law should get tough with these young hoodlums, (his own included) and not let them off with the cream-puff treatment. His opinion is that young criminals should pay the same price for their crimes as old ones. •Do you think the "get-tough approach" would help solve the juvenile delinquency problem? I told him I would write for your opinion.—MR. E.D.D. There are 3,000 juvenile courts in the United States and a review of the record reveals that straight punishment did very little good. Eighfy-eigibt percent of the young offenders were back before the courts in 6wo years. Jail made the tough ones tougher and the mean ones more determined than ever to get even. We need funds to build detention homes. Money must be spent to educate the public and to train personnel to deal not only with the kids in trouble, but to counsel their frightened and ignorant parents. Better paid juvenile authorities and a strong and thoughtful reha- bilitation. program would be more effective ttian "getting tough". Young offenders -should be taught a trade and not merely be slapped behind bars to serve time. In many cases a boy who has been in jail comes out with a head full of new tricks picked up froim experienced criminals. Small wonder they are baok to robbing filling stations and grocery stores be fore long. * * .'* OONFIDBNiTIAlLLY: TRICKED: Apparently "that giggly girl" stopped laughing long enough to marry the man. Forget, about him and tell. him to leave you ' atone. He made his choice. CURIOUS CONCHITA: So sorry but I can't give you a clue. I ney er.reveal the identity of those who write to me. This'-is strictly between THAT.person and,me. HECKLED HELENA: -A fellow can't just'drop dead because he knows something damaging about a girl. Let's hope.-he'll keep his •mouth shut and you should resolve to behave better-in the Mure: CORNBALL: Tell him you don't approve of that kind of dancing and refuse to be his partner if. he insists on hip-wiggling.

HIATT'S 310 E.Broadway Married In England WASfflN'&TON - (NEA) - If your mind wanders in class, girls, just make sure you're day-dreaming about landing a good job instead of a man. Mrs. Hazel Palmer, president of the National Federation of Business and Professional Women's Clubs, Delieves that in the Mure more and more women are going to nave to go to work. And a lot of these gals will be married, too. That's why she-warns 'co-eds: "Don't use college as a marking- time period to the -altar;" Instead, she urges college girls to take courses that will train them to hold down a dedinite job.. Miss Palmer believes a girl should start planning for a secure future long before ever .setting foot on a campus. "B/ all means," the BPW president declares, "a high school girl should see that she educates herself for her future existence and progress." Miss Palmer strongly recom- mendts that- if a girl is unable to attend college, she,should get some kind of job training while going to high school.. • " MISS PALMER POINTS to the nation's booming economy as a strong indication of the Mure needs for more womanpower. For example, she cites the inereased number of -homes mushrooming across the country. As, more houses are built, more goods will be needed to furnish them. In order to meet this demand for household furnishings and appliances, she says more women probably will have to join the labor force fco manufacture and help buy them! She explains that a family with A-C and Mrs. Merrell Lamoine McAninch are. pictured above following their wedding performed at the Saint Mary Stoke church, Ipswitch, Suffolk, England. ''*»,' The above picture was just received by'the groom's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth McAninch, of Burnettsville, route one. The couple were married February 16th, th e bride being the former Miss Jean Elizabeth Polley, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Polley of England. r.- ^ * Lamoine joined the service in September, 1954, and was shipped to England'in 1955. . _ Airman McAninch will receive his discharge from the Air iorce in August, 1958: • • The couple will return to this country and establish residence in the Burnettsville community following his discharge. were Linda Bridenbaugh, Betsey Corcoran, Marilyn Dodrill, Pat Emmerd, Carole Sue Hardt, Jo Ann Harrison, Beth- Eight, Arleen Isaacs, Karen Kline, Carolyn Massey, Mary McHwain, Pat Mclll- wain, Joan Pasquale, Sally Roberts, Marilyn Rush, Barbara Shaw, Dixie Ulery, Joan Schmidt, and Katie Fettig. Leaders were Mrs. Mary Emmerd and Mrs. George Thomas. * * # There was a mix-up of pale blue orlon jackets at the Mother and Daughter dinner. One lady returned hers to the office, saying it was identical but wasn't really hers. If some Scout's mother has a pale blue orlon jacket, will she check it please to be certain it is really her own? , Proper persons will be contacted through the Scout Office, Phone 3728.
