Friday Evening, November 15, 1957. Ann Landers Girl, 17, Must Admit Past To Herself, Then Forget It Dear Ann: My Mom tried to warn me about being to intimate with my boy friends. I always said J knew what I was doing and that she shouldn't worry. I'm 17 and went steady with a boy I'll call Tom for 11 months. At first everything was fine. Then he began to make excuses about coming over. He always seemed put of money so we went for rides in his car. One night he threatened to take his ring back if I wouldn't prove my love. I tried to talk him out of it but nothing would do but the limit. j I'm ashamed to say he had his way. After two months he told me he was seeing someone else and was planning on being engaged. He said he wanted a "pure" girl for his wife and I didn't qualify. He knew he was my only boy friend but that didn't seem to matter. age. Make sure she sees it, and good luck, Mother. Dear Ann: I'm getting pretty fed up with you knocking Mquor. After all, anything in excess is bad. Moderation in all things is best. The way you sound, you'c like to enter all the saloons with a hatchet .and 'break up every hot tie of liquor in sight. You are a Carrie Nation re-incarnate. You kt;ep bringing up the point that liquor is bad for the liver, bad for the stomach and bud for the brain. You quote medical men as your authorities. May I point out, Annie Old Girl, there are more old drunks around than old doctors? What do you say to that? —BOTOFT Dear Butch: Those "old drunks" are probably a lot younger than think. It's the booze that aged '•am.. — ANNIE (Ann Landers will . be glad to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of this newspaper and enclose a stamped self- addressed envelope.) Now I feel cheap and humilated. -Ke has many friends and I keep wondering if they know, about me. 1 feel that no one will want me and my life is ruined. Please help me. I could just die. D.M. Dear D.M.: I hope every teen-;» ___| p,, rf l llp «:* I1( 4 orll . age girl who reads your letter will! 'r O . r u r f li 6 ^™ a e n f clip it out and paste it on her dressing room mirror. This tells more forcibly than all the lectures in the world what is wrong with uncontrolled teenage emotions. First, accept the fact that there's no way to undo the past, so stop •punishing yourself. It's history now—"nor all your piety nor wit can lure it back to cancel half a line—not all your tears wash out a word of it." You were foolish. Admit it, then forget it. Don't make another mistake by feeling you are ruined and no one will want you. Make up your mind you're going to be "pure" from now on and the chances are excellent that you'll attract a fine young man who will respect your high standards. You can turn this liability into an asset. Good luck. Receives ROTC Honor LAFAYETTE, Ind.—Robert A.

My 17-year- old daughter has kept steady company for two years (and I DO mean steady) with a 19-year-old boy. Every night they take off and behave as if they were married. I have proof of this. I'm not guessing. I've had several confidential discussions with my daughter ' and have pleaded with her to change her ways. I've explained that loose morals are harmful physically AND spiritually but she pays no attention. She just screams "Get off my back, Mother—I intend to be married to him someday!" Is it useless in this day and age of "going steady" to try to break up a situation like this? My heart is heavy, Ann. I grieve constantly. Shall I keep trying to steer her in the right direction or just sit back and let her take the conse- q u e n c e s? DISTRAUGHT MOTHER Your daughter knows your speeches by heart but she's tuned you out long ago. There's nothing you can do but let her learn the hard way and be there to help her pick up the pieces when the world comes crashing down on her head. The first letter in today's column may be of interest to her since it was written not by a cou- for military service and (listing- uished school record both academically and through campus leadership.

Tomorrow: "Observe These Rules and Reduce Kids' Winter Colds." (•Released by The Register and Tribune Syndicate, 1957) the United Press was responsible for many practices now accepted as commonplace in journalism, such as the putting of bylines on press association copy and the sending of copy by • wireless. "Of even more significance than these," Bartholomew said, "is the fact that we were the first press association to write about things as they were.

Now, he said, "we are finding that many of the concerns of men in public relations are with explaining the truths which it -might be to their advantage not to have known."

Oldest Vet Of Civil War 115 Years Old HOUSTON, Tex., (UP)—"Colonel" Walter Williams, oldest surviving veteran of the Civil War, greeted Ms U16th year Thulrsday with the chucking remark he was going "to hang around some more." "I'm gonna keep on a-goin' just to see what happens," he said. Williams, who was a forager in Gen. Hood's brigade, spruced up for the occasion in his Confederate uniform to receive gifts and well- wishes at the home of a daughter, Mrs. Willie Mae Bowles. Williams, nearly blind, could hardly see a birthday cake with MS candles, but he puffed mightily at the candles. A half-dozen of his 11 surviving children—there were 18 of them—helped him blow out the candles. Williams wife of 50 years- Ella Mae—died Nov.. 2 at the age of 84. The aged veteran was not told about it. He believes she's in hospital for a rest. Only one other confederate veteran survives. He is John Sailing, Slant, Va., who is three years younger than Williams. observers on beaches, however, the firing was a success. .The Navaho is capable of flying about three times the speed of sound, but at a lower altitude than ballistic missiles such as the.
