entry**. Dear t>eiay, Ifat tare aft belag hanl at that poor gal win algal tomtit "Office Worker." I'm glad I oWt fmrk to her office tr M yttra. t confcM t don't work la ai ittiec it all, aid the dayt whet 1 dM aeem very long age tad far away. It seems to me If yea are gotag to wttte a eetama af advice, yea are going to have to start with the attfmpttea that each «ae who writes you does so because she has a problem which she feels she needs help la solving. If yon don't know of anything she can do, except work her own hours and try to Ignore those who don't, can't yon say so gracefully? If "mind yoitr own business" is such Infallible advice, why didn't yon tell the other lady to Jttst ognore It when her friend's children tore up her house and wrote en the wallpaper? 1 bet a cookie the first time she corrects them, their mother will cease to be a friend, so that problem will never arise again. !'? Dear!?, ' , There is a difference between someone who writes for advice In solving her own problem and someone who asks for Advice in the solv* ing of a "problem" of some one else who has enither asked for this help not indicated that she needed it! Every letter that comes to this desk is given consideration, much thought, and a sincere desire to help. If I had given "Office Worker" encouragement in stirring in a situation, which by her own admission, did not concern her, do you really think I would have helped? I'm sure she wouldn't have thanked me if she took such advice and ended up with only her unemployment check to tell her troubles tot Dear Penny, I am sixteen years old and have been interested in nursing for about three years. Recently I saw a notice in the paper about the Navy Nurse Corps, so I decided maybe I ought to try that. I've been' taking courses that are necessary for a nursing career such as math, biology, etc. Do you know where I could find out more about the Nurse Corps and to whom I could write? Any help would be appreciated. M. H. N. Dear M. H. N„ The local Navy recruiter has pamphlets which might help, and you can also write to Nursing Division, Bureau of Medicine and Surgery, Navy Department, Washington 25, D. C. Good luckt Dear Penny, My mother is 89 years old and has recently come to live with me. She was widowed several years ago and lived by herself until just recently when she had to have an operation. We are happy to have her with us, but she has been very downhearted since she moved in with us. She had many friends, but they seem to have drifted apart over the years. Except for some difficulty In walking, the doctor says she is In very good health. I wonder If she would be better off in a nursing home where she would' be with people of her own age. L.P. Dear L. P., Give her a little time to adjust to her new home and make some plans to help this adjustment along. Call some of her old friends and get them to come to your home for an afternoon of coffee and renewing their friendship. Call the president of the women's group of your church and ask to have some of the women who know your mother pay a call. If she is interested in plants, help her get some new ones started in your home. As soon as she feels that your home is her home too, she'll probably be her old, perky self again. Thinking of you . . . Penny Send your questions to Penny, to care of the Galesbnrg Register-Mail. Yonr letter will bo answered either to this column or personally.

Young Tire Slashers Are Jailed 5 Days Three tri -cities youths, who could give no plausible reason for their involvement here late last Saturday night in slashing auto tires, this morning were placed on probation for two years each to the sheriff's office. They were directed to spend the first five days in the Knox County Jail, to make full restitution within the period of their probation, and pay costs of the case. Appearing before Judge Daniel J. Roberts were Thomas Joseph Mohr, 19, of East Moline; Gary Wayne Humphrey, 17, and Larry Snider, 15, both of Moline. Jack R. Kirkpatrick told the judge he had a previous record of a total of 10 tires having been slashed on six automobiles in the north part of the city and today had information on a tire on a seventh car, in the same general area having been slashed, and this tire made the count seven cars and 11 tires. Declared Vicious Type Addressing the judge, Kirkpatrick said, "this probably is about as vicious a type of thing as you and I will encounter. It was a purposeless, motiveless type of crime, they stood to gain nothing." He referred to the cosf to the car owners and the fact that there was no reason for it.' "They didn 't have the common courtesy or guts to pull a thing like this in their home community," Kirkpatrick commented. "What was your idea, why did you do it?" the judge inquired, but received no reply. Asking the boys, "Why do you want to destroy something?" Judge Roberts told them that the tires now are of no Value to the owners. "This nonsense has got to stop, the public has got to be protected," the judge remarked as he placed them on probation, with the jail time and restitution as part of the probation terms. Snider was apprehended at the scene and was in jail here Sunday, for which he will be given credit on his 5 -day stay.
