READ THE WANT ADS1 ALESBUR9 I YVSco 85 n. BROAD fa yourthouqhty Dear Penny, I am Interested in forming a babysitting group here In Galesburg and would like to get in contact with other young married couples who arc interested. The idea of the group being that In return for taking care of the children of a member of the group, your children are taken care of for the number of hours you babysat. I feel that it would be ideal for those of us who can't afford to hire a babysitter. For additional information, your readers may call me at 342-0553. MARY S. BEASLEY Dear Mary, It sounds like a good idea, and I know that these groups have been formed in other cities. There are, however, some legal matters you should take up with the Illinois Division of Child Welfare, which maintains a Galesburg office. Regulations require, for example, that a person who babysits in her own home for more than 10 hours a week be registered with the state and that she and all others in her household have physical examinations. Tell your plans to the Child Welfare people; I'm certain they will be glad to explain the regulations to you. Won't you let us know how you make out? Dear Penny, During the summer, I started dating a fellow who attends the University of Illinois. He has already asked mc to come down for homecoming weekend, and there arc a few questions I need answered. First of all, who pays for my transportation? He said that his fraternity was to provide housing for (heir dates, but my mother is not sure this is proper. I also would like to know if a skirt and sweater and flats (which is what I wear to football games here) arc proper to wear. Would this same outfit be all right to wear to the dance? LOCAL YOKEL Dear L. Y., You are responsible for your bus ticket, but he picks up the tab for expenses after you get there such as meals and tickets. If his fraternity is providing housing, they probably will also provide a chaperone, and you will be subject to the same hours and rules as the girls who live on campus. A basic wool dress and heels will make you feel right at home at the game, and you should take along a dressy date dress for the dance. Have fun! Dear Penny, I have a daughter in high school, and the school bus stops very near our house. I have been horrified at the length (or lack of it) of the skirts the girls arc wearing. Many of them arc no longer than the shorts they wore during the summer. I have been tempted to call the dean of girls and ask why these girls arc allowed to stay in school looking like that. Is there not a provision in the school code that skirts have to be a proper length, and if so, why doesn't the school enforce it? IRATE MOTHER Dear Irate Mother, This is one of the biggest faults of our society today—parents expect anybody, school, church, club or YMCA to enforce the rules for their children. If parents don't make rules and enforce them, why should the school have to do it? If standards of sclflrespcct and decency aren't set forth in the homes from which these girls come, how can you expect the dean of girls—or any other individual— to instill these attributes? Let's be fair and put the blame where it really belongs—on the parents who allow these standards to persist! Thinking of you . . .
