H0j» Ntffv* Work»d as Guorrfeffe JOYCE WOODS H The Sunday-Star Bulletin & Advertiser carried a column cal- fed "Date Book" by Nancy Har- Kcfcer's on Sunday, March 31, Und part of It told about the work . if! a Hope woman. § The article related to Interstate Security Service uses women for guards or guardettes. Joyce Woods, daughter of Mrs. Johnnie Mae Young of Hope, is one of the guards In the article. Born and raised In Hope, this is the article about Joyce: "Another Guardette, Joyce Woods, had to give up her work this week to devote more time to her studies at the University of Hawaii where she majors In sociology. "It's amazing what people will do," Joyce said, as she revealed an assortment of schemes that would fill a book.' "Children as young as six have tried to outwit me. One will be watching me while the other is stealing. Even some mothers who know fhelr children are stealing don't try to stop them". J f Among her other observations Joyce said is her conclusion that university students are great offenders. "I think that education means so much .to them that they spend all their money for tuition and steal to eat. One young man I stopped told me he had eaten dinner In a particular store for two years while getting an education." On another occasion while in plalnclothes, she encountered an Qtelous,thief and asked, "How can I- get some food, too? He answered, 'Man I'll tell you,' and described ways to conceal food between his arms and body and in bulky jackets or large pock- e(s. Now I watch people wear- Ing long-tailed shirts, large jackets or two pairs of pants." j Customers' reaction to female guards, Joyce noted, were more favorable In Niu than inKaneohe, "high-Incident location forshop- liftlng," she said. "Children are more of a problem in Niu while adults seem to be the worst offenders In Kaneohe. . Recalling several experiences, Joyce continued, 'fl've seen whple families oibme In and eat their dinner — cheese, hot dogs, bread, cookies -r before leaving the store, I've watched others open mayonnaise and put their fingers In to taste it, or squeeze a tomato till the juice runs out, But people won't do these things if they know you're watching. "Others have come up tome and said, 'How nice to see you.' Five munutes later they're put- m ling something into their purses," When she mentioned ciga* fstfe§, Joyce warned, "People will pick up a carton, remove several packs, then return the earton to the sheU With meat, rve seen them take a |4 price oft & roast and substitute a smaller price, "1 also watch for shopping bags-especially if they're car« rylng one Inside another, You'd be amaaed at how much merchandise a person can conceal between two bags," Saying that she Is sorry to give up Guardette work, Joyce added, "It's been rewarding. Every day I left a store I knew 1 had saved somebody some money, It's a good feeling," Joyce has been In Hawaii for two and half years with her hus* band, Willie E. Woods, stationed at Pearl Harbor. Her education, she hopes will lead to an eventual degree and a career In criminology.

It was just as well that it did because if South had just passed, the best East and West could make would be a part score. South was unlucky to find a dummy without any trumps and it would have been a cinch for Bobby and Mike to set him three tricks; but our team is trying for perfection in both bidding and defense and they managed to set South a fourth trick. •Bobby nra'd e 'His nWm'al opening lead of the deuce of clubs—fourth best of his longest suit, Mike's king forced South's ace and South played ace and another diamond. Bobby was in with the jack and noted that Mike had played the eight and then the four. This high-low is known as an e:ho, and a trump echo shows an odd number of trumps, thus Bobby knew his partner still held a trump. He was also sure from the bidding that South wasn't going to show up with the ace of spades, so Bobby led his deuce of that suit. Mike was in with • the ace and played jack and another club. This put Bobby in again and he played his ace of hearts. This gave Mike a chance to make the key play. He dropped his nine of hearts! • Just to keep bridge a simple game, the trump echo is used to show an odd number; the side suit echo either to show strength in the suit or an even number of cards. Mike couldn't be showing strength. Dummy held .the king-queen. He had to be showing an even number and that number had to be four. This meant that South's distribution was 2-1-7-3 and Bobby had a blueprint. He cashed his ace of hearts and led his fourth club. Mike ruffed with the queen of trumps and South was down four, (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) 16 Q—The bidding has been: West North East South 1 * Dble 2 * 3 A 3* Pass ?

This column Is for young people, their problems and pleasures, their troubles and fun. As with the rest of Helen Help US!, It welcomes laughs but won't dodge a serious question with a brush-off. Send your teenage questions to YOUTH ASKED FOR IT, care of Helen Help US! this newspaper, IS "GOING STEADY" GOING OUT? Dear Helen: Thank, thank you, for getting arguments started on this "going , ste Actually, ^thei "agalnst's" are divided about half and half at our school, but the ones who are against "the steady system" have been afraid to peep, because they'd be put down as either: 1. Siding with "the enemy"—adults; 2. So unpopular they're jealous; or 3. Flirts, and not to be trusted. But when you printed the teen viewpoints—for as well as against steady dating— you really got discussions going. The kids no longer shrug, "That's the way it is, why fight it?" If they want to play the field now, they say so! And more of them are saying so all the time. As you said last summer, the phrase, "going steady" has filtered down to junior high and even elementary schools, so the label is going out of favor among older teens, but the "Idea" of dating "steadily" only one person at a time still makes it tough on us "mix now, match later" people. It's called "going together" here, but it means the same. Maybe the teen "Stamp Out Steadying " button campaign will go down in history as the Beginning of a New Deal in Dating. - HOPE SOI Dear Hope: Might could. But I'm not going to hold my breath. -H, Dear Helen: "Going Steady" dates back to bobby sox days, maybe before,, The bobby sox phase lasted about 25 years, and fizzled. If anybody called a teen a "bobbysoxer" now, she wouldn't know what it meant, J'U bet kids 25 years from now will be asking, "Mom, what was it like to go steady?" just as my kids ask, "Did you REALLY have to color your own magazine?— SEER Dear Helen: Thanks for the S.O.S. button, When you offered them last year, I thought they were for the birds— but since then I've found out that going steady— to my guy at least— was for the birds AND BEES, I didn't buy that, so I bought an S,o,S. button instead, and have found out it's lots more fun— PLAYING THE FIELD Dear Helen: to our "button age," yours seems to roe the most appropriate. I'm a freshman in a State college whore girls outnumber fellows three to one, Being male, I figure there's no harm to advertise. Sock a button to roe, please,MIKE NOTE TO READERS: The final batch of S.O.S, (Stamp Out Seadying) buttons is almost gone, Seud a dime and a stamped, self- addressed envelope for each byt» ton to HELEN'S S.O.S. CLUB, Box 9997, Sacramento, Callf ft 95853 H Dear Helen: I think steadying is great when the right fella comes along, but I sure resent being classed as a boy's official property, just because I talk tp him a few times, or maybe date him twice. ^ Right now I don't want to be tied down, and my S.O.S. butto'jix will get the message across, Please rush me two buttons and two membership cards in your : Club.
