Mow your hair like a "dumb cluck organization man" or you won't be mowln' lawns. -H Dear Helen: 1 have a friend who visits me often, always at dinner time. She eats enough for two people. If anything is left on the table, she finishes it off like a living garbage disposer. She sits around until Mom calls us for dinner and we have to be polite so we ask her to stay—and she always does! How can we get it across that the Invitation is just a nice way of saying, "It's time to go home"? -CHEWED OUT Dear C.O.: You probably can't. Subtlety Is lost on eager eaters. Two approaches are: "Would you like to wait in the front room till we're finished?" Or—the best: Your mother's firm, "I'm sure you're wanted home for dinner now —Good-by el—H Dear Helen: Glad you started the S.O.S. (Stamp Out Steadying) button offer again. Serious dating Is the worst thing that can happen to two young people. At 16, I met THE girl. At 17, she still is THE girl, but I have just told her I wasn't going to date her steadily any more, not because I don't think a lot of her, but because we were getting loo serious. If I had dated other girls and 'she had dated other guys, we would have played it cool until after high school. But we got ahead of ourselves because of a society that told us to go steady. Teen-agers don't have to give their ex-steady up for good, but if they are wise, they'll play the field. ^A DUM-DUM FINALLY WISED UP Dear Helen: Until a few months ago, I was a staunch member of the S.O.S, club. Then I nwt the most wonderful boy in the world. 1 realize going steady has its faults and I can see why lots of kids are against it. But like many other things, it'sa matter of what is right for the individual. I have benefitted from going steady. For a change, 1 put som;one else's feeling before mine. I've found happiness in getting to know ar£ understand one person. We aren't aboiit to lose our heads.

Brownies and cold drinks were served to the group of 16 by the Brights, ers, but how can something that has worked so well for my boy friend and me be all bad?-C. F.B. Dear C.; "Going steady" isn't all bad! For kids like you —sensible, mature, AGREED -It's a lovely relationship, What IS bad, according to some 10,000 teens so far, is "The System" which forces steadying on those who would still rather mix than match. As I've said before, every S.O.S. button • wearer will someday be a dropout. S.O.S. isn't aimed at break' ing up steadies. It simple gives the "not yet readies" a choice. Want an S.O.S. Button? Send one dime and a stamped self- addressed envelope for each button to Helen Betters S.O.S. Club, Bo* 9997, Sacramento, California, 958?3.
