I like a boy who is 17 I am a sophomore and he's a senior. We don't go to the same schools. I like him very much. My girl friend says he talks about me sometimes and asks my phone number, but I havt never heard from him. He walks a freshman girl to her classes and when he sees me he doesn't pay any attention to me at all. My girl friend says sometimes he acts very interested in me. What should I do?" OUR ANSWER: "Pake it easy. Don't get excited because someone told you that some boy was "interested" in you. If he was very interested, he would let you know himself, and not be talking about you to someone he knows will tell you what he has said. If he were really interested, he would make it a point to have a mutual friend introduce him to you. He would speak to you whenever he saw you, whether he was walking with someone else, or was alone. Borne boys work the game quite smoothly. They let a girl know they are interested in her by saying complimentary things about her to someone they kno\» will be sure to tell her about it. Then when they are around her, they act as if they don't know she is alive. Quite often, this will lead the girl to "make the first move" to be friendly—which is exactly what the boy wants. Sometimes, it's true, the boy is bashful. Some boys use this approach because they want t.> know whether or not a girl likes them before they ask for a d.ite or try to be friendly. They rant stand the "hurt" of having a girl say "no" when they ask for a date. At any rate, we don't think a girl should fall for such a "trick." It is not the girl's business to "make the first move " And certainly she should not get too interested In a boy just because someone has told her that he has been saying nice things about her.

The original Tammany was a Delaware Indian chielf known for his wisdom. The Democratic party has some colorful skeletons in its closet. The Barnburners, for example, I were a group of New York Democrats in the 1840's, who were accused of being willing to destroy the party in order to bring about certain reforms. They got their name from the story of the farmer who burned down his barn to free it of rats. In the early 1800's. a ^roup who wanted to keep Tammany in control sprouted the emblem of a buck's tail in their hat< and were labeled the Bucktails The president of the U S may be the most powerful man in the world, but his wife can't redecorate her home without the approval of Congress.
