Not(!: Glrl -> a « v » » n newly engaged, is happier than ever oefore, but parents give her no peace. DEAR MARY HAWORTH: i am •,*rl 17, of a family of moderate Mans, and recently engaged to <*ry. who is 22. I have never'been Chappy as I am now; but will our Carriage succeed? You see, I am »r from being an ideal person; and jfc fact have often considered sui- ifle, or leaving home, before I met .t rry - JiAs far back as I can remember, »y parents have said my life is Krthless. They have often told me Ke following: "You will nfiver have Siy friends." "You will never find my man who will want to marry 'ou." "As you are such a self-cen- ered, demanding and lazy person, he world won't accept you." Yet I am president of three or- ganizations; and nave received a few honors and have several friends. Are these people just "getting along" with me, as my parents say they must be? I am sure that my parents never have really cared for me; and mother often says "It is always your fault, so don't feel sorry for yourself." Also my father often curses me; and he never curses my younger brother; so I guess it must be my fault. They constantly remind me of sacrifices they have made for main the form of clothing, love and consideration. When I try to talk to them about my problems, they say I am making fun of them, or sassing them. I guess I just don't know how to approach them. My biggest worry at present is this statement from them— "Your marriage will go on the rocks. I feel sorry for Jerry." I have asked Jerry if he loves me enough to marry me, and he says ^Definitely." Should we accept the risk? Thank you, whatever your answer may be. V, N. Problem Family Handicaps Girl Now Is The Time To Enjoy Your Car!

"It Pays To Do Business In Cumberland!" FIRST NATIONAL BANK Cumberland, Maryland M»mber F. D. I. C. DEAR V. N.: This is a shocking report of parental misbehavior in relation to a child. And it is my impression that your mother spearheads the spite campaign—with your father merely echoing (in a thoughtless, fretful way) her abiding sentiment that you are a family nuisance. All that your mother says against you is an indictment of herself, really. I gather she has resented your existence from the first, probably because of her lazy, self-centered unwillingness (in those years) to be responsible for an infant's welfare. By the time your brother was born, perhaps she was unconsciously disposed to treat him more charitably, either in tacit atonement for her unjustified meanress to you, or because she'd found some relief from multiple anxieties that weighed on her earlier. In any case, whatever the facts 8 HOUR DRY CLEANING SERVICE Coll and Delivery CITY CLEANERS & DYERS PHONE 3856 behind her "partisan performance of favoring him while browbeating you, I am convinced that you aren't "at fault" in the sense she claims. Indeed your record of social acceptance away from home indicates that you are exceptionally contributive, cooperative and approval- seeking, with a proved capacity for taking responsibility and getting things done. These are essential traits for holding office, winning group honors and making friends. And the quest for prestige along these lines often stems from basic lack of emotional security in filial experience.. Unload.The Past Before Marriage With many Individuals, the obscure aim (unknown to self) of a drive for social achievement is to win a change of heart in an indifferent or rejecting mother — by doing her proud, so to speak. Or by collecting public testimony to one's worth. And the person who blindly pursues this heoric bid for closer relationship to an unloving parent is, necessarily, a pretty game character—to have withstood, and come up above, the punishment that fuels the continuing compulsive effort to assuage the tormentor somehow. As you have done well on your own in 'the field of friendship outside the home, despite the family's nagging predictions of total failure, I think you don't need to feel frightened when they -cry havoc on your engagement to Jerry. They speak from hostile habit, without discernment of the facts before them; and as you have succeeded in the past, so will you succeed in future, if you live by sound principles and do'n't get discouraged. In preparation for marriage, however, you should discuss your filial tensions with a good psychologist— so as to leave them behind, insofar Plan Meeting On Sanitation For Next Week Two meetings will be held here March 13 and 14. by the Allegany County Health .Department at which sanitation in bars, soda fountains and other similar places will be the principal topics, according to Dr. Winter R.

State Tax Form Error Explained An error in figuring tax on the first $500 of unearned Income has been noted in the Maryland Income Tax form, the State Comptroller's Office reveals The forms call for a tax of five per cent but the 1951 Legislature changed the rate to two »per cent. The rate above $500 is still five per cent. But, the tax office added, no one will suffer in the long run for each return will be audited, and the Careful Drivers Live Longer The minutes '(or seconds) you may save by always being in a hurry when you get behind the wheel of your cor add up to a mighty small total when compared to the years an' accident may chop off of your life.
