My problem to hew de t ge afcoet meeting a alee boy, wtiea 1 have te girl frietde te raa aremi with? Will beys pay attention to me if I go Mrt aleae at right? It yea knew anyone aear my age who wenM like te write me, 1 win give yon my address. THANK YOU Dear Thank You. Since this is not a dating bureau, 1 will keep your address locked tight in my little 'ol file. However, if you want to meet boys you 've got to go where the boys are. Join a mixed bowling league, take bridge lessons, take extension courses, or join a youth group in your church. Boys probably would pay attention to you if you went roaming around at night by yourself, but I doubt that you really want that kind of attention. The thing that really bothers me is why you don't have any girl friends. Everyone needs friends of both sexes, so I would suggest you start here before you go any further. Dear Penny, I would like te know your point of view, and that of others, en children "trick and treating" so early before Halloween. My children were not allowed to go out until that night arrived, and then they were rebuffed and scolded by people who were sick and tired of Halloween. Why can't parents place more restraint on their children, and make this day a pleasant occasion Instead of a long, drawn-out affair? A WONDERING MOTHER Dear W. M., I'm glad you wrote this letter! I think Halloween is one of the most fun days for all kids, but I'm with you. It is just a day, not a week. I don't really believe anyone would seriously object to having the little spooks come calling a day or two early, but it has gotten out Of hand. I would like to see all parents make a concerted effort to keep their children from starting to make their rounds earlier than two nights before the big day. It's fun to see their costumes, and it's fun to pass out treats, but too soon is too muchl Dear Penny, What's the matter with girls today? I have been dating for quite a while, and I have dated some girls who I thought were real cool. I have always given them extra-nice gifts for their birthdays and Christmas, and sometimes I have given them a gift just because I thought they would like It. Then just as soon as you try to be the least bit affectionate, they give you the deep-freeze. I just dropped the girl I have been going with because of this, and she had the gall to write and ask me If she had done something to offend me. Shall I write and tell her or just let her wonder? DISGUSTED Dear Disgusted, Sure, why don't you write her? Just be honest and tell her that you don't feel she was coming across with enough merchandise for the price you paid. I have a pretty good idea just how "affectionate" you were trying to get. Just be glad it wasn't me, buddy, because you would have gotten your presents back with a kick in the pants for interest due. Thinking of you... Penny Send your qestions to Penny, in care of the Galesburg Register- Mail. All letters will be answered either personally or in this column.

(Continued on page 18) Coast Guard Investigates Barge Blast U.S. Coast Guard will start an investigation Thursday into the explosion of a crude oil barge and the death of a deckhand on the Mississippi River below Lock 16 Friday near Muscatine, the Army Corps of Engineers reported today. Clemmy Jesse Adams, 41, of Montgomery, Ala., was the fatality. He was hurled high into the air by the explosion, and his mutilated body landed in a driveway near the lock control house. Assistant Lockmaster Alva Ingwerson was slightly burned. River traffic at the lock was resumed Saturday afternoon after the burning barge was extinguished and removed from the channel. The explosion occurred when the towboat "Double. D," pushing four barges loaded with crude oil, was approaching the lock wall, headed upstream. The blast emanated from the lead barge, which engineers conjectured might have scraped against the wall and caused a spark. The burning barge separated from the others and drifted slowly downstream. It continued to burn until the last of the fires was extinguished by wave wash from the "Double D" Saturday about 1 p.m. The towboat then slowly backed down to Muscatine with the damaged barge, which was tied up below a grain elevator. The two front compartments and the rake of the barge were, destroyed, but the remaining six compartments and the crude oil in them remained intact. The "Double D" resumed its trip Sunday morning, heading for Pine Bend, Minn,, where the crude oil will be delivered to a refinery. First towboat permitted through Lock 16 after the ex- Prairie City Firemen Win Water Bout PRAIRIE CITY - It might be said, it was a "hot time" in Prairie City Sunday night, after the firemen's water fighting team returned home from the Junction City water fighting contest Sunday, and bringing with them the first-place trophy which they had won. There were 27 teams competing in the elimination contest sponsored by the Peoria Fire Protection District. It is an annual affair, and the proceeds go to the Crippled Children's Fund of Peoria. Participating members of the local team were Dick Rose, Jim Cox, Jim Brown and Charles Emory. Besides the trophy, each was presented a key chain bearing the firemen's emblem. The trophy is being engraved and will be on display in a few days. Representing the Bushnell-Prairie City Fire District in Peoria Sunday were trustees, Dr. Meloan and Max Murphey of Bushnell, who, with their wives, were present. The local siren was sounded after the team's return and other local firemen and citizens turned out to congratulate the water fighting team. plosion was the "Bull Durham" with three empty gasoline barges for East St. Louis. River traffic experienced another delay Sunday at Keokuk. One of two vertical shafts on the swing span of the Keokuk highway bridge failed Sunday at 5 a.m. and prevented towboats from leaving Lock 19. It was not back in operation until Sunday at 4:22 p.m.. Army engineers re> ported. Fog delayed river traffic last Thursday morning for about nine hours.
