When two people, of opposite sex, confine the social life almost entirely to each other, refraining from dating anyone else but their so-called one and only, then they are Going Steady.

Please 66 not let "being engaged which is on the whole an adult situation, sway you from the point that we are discussing only the teen ager's problem of Going Steady. Going Steady has few, if any. sound virtues. Anything gained by it certainly cannot equalize the disadvantages it promotes. The teen-ager is in the Iprime of development.

His personality Is being cast into its final shape These are the formative years. when the future lies ahead. The results of these future years how ever, "will be tremendously influenced by the development that takes place during the teen-age period of our lives. To ripen into a healthy and happy personality we must come into contact with all types of virtuous people, learning and thus maturing the help of many ana vanea mends. For those confining themselves al most entirely to one person, these formative years are practically wasted, rather then given the full and deserving chance to take root and blossom into a full and ripened personality.

Of course, there is the occa sional teen-age couple that will argue that they are truly in love. How, may I ask, can one tell that soup is better or more agreeable to the taste than the others, if he or she has confinedhimself to sampling only one? Asking for Trouble Is going steady a menace to the educational development of a student? Ask any teacher this question and surely the answer will be in the positive. Next to our religious duties, Mower Supply CUrtiss 5-838 --fy -VVJ7H eduatipn should play the most important part in our lives. It should not take a back seat to even our social lives. Education is probably our most valuable instrument of taste.

With its help we find our ambitions, qualifica tions and often ideals for the life aheadJ It must not and should not be obstructed by teen-age infatua tions that tend to fill the mina with personal problems. Often it is these personal problems that Going (steady produces. If our emotional life is taxed with unnecessary burdens, there is that much less baggage space for the desire to learn and to develop our minds by filling them with worthwhile knowledge. Last but certainly not least is the spiritual or moral concept of Going Steady. I doubt if there is a clergyman who disagrees witn me on tne iouowing pome Rarely ican two normal young people, years from the matri monial state, keep steady com pany without seriously endan gerine thefic moral and spiritual standards.

jThey may not have any inclinations towards a lapse in morality but the results often prove disastrous. educational, moral and spiritual 'Ideals are often under mined by Going Steady. It is no wonder jthat clergymen, social workers and ordinary loving parents are so set against it. WHAT'S MY LINE? Pavid Dunn might be a can- didate for that program.
