Third Floor Leiter Brothers « WE WOMEN By BETTY BRAINERD Minstrel Show Used To 'live Alone" At Homecoming A Marriage Fixation! "Dear Betty Brainerd: "After having read your column for several years I have decided to ask your advice. I am nearly 20 years old and for three months I have been keeping company with A with whom I am very much in love. I also see B who is a friend of A's but not a close friend. I am exceptionally fond of B. "Both A and B have told me they are in love with me and B has asked me to marry him. B knows all about A and understands perfectly. However A, who knows all about B, does not like to have me see B. In his conversations, A seems to be avoiding about the future but B usually remarks: 'Don't you think we could get along forever?' "I am easy to get along with and so, too, are A and B. I know that if A should ask m© to marry him I would. Do you think A is just handing me a line or do you think he is waiting until he earns a larger salary? Since he ha"s not proposed to me he seems to want too many privileges, whereas B is just the opposite and makes no demands of me. "Should I give up B and wait for A to propose or should I give up A and marry B? I am very undecided as both A and B are very fine- respectable young men and deserve the best. Like all women, I am looking forward to a home and maybe children in the future. "A doesn't, gn with anyone else that I know of. B went regularly with a nice girl whom I knew for a year. Please advise me. "Undecided Pat." Dear "Undecided Pat": The trouble with you is that you are marriage crazy! You have been going with A for only three months. He may not have proposed because of what you suggest, but there is a much more important reason why he has not proposed and that he has not dated you long enough to do so. That both have told you they are "in love with you" may have been prompted by the desire of both of them to please and flatter you. It is obvious that you seek protestations of love and proposals of mai-- riage that it would be rather difficult for any boy to evade such issues. You resent the fact that A "avoids talking about the future." For this I heartily commend and admire him. He isn't going to let you or any other girl railroad him into love and marriage talk until he has known the girl long enough and well enough to be certain that she is the one girl in this world for him. You are not in love with A. You are in love with love and the idea of a home and children—that is all. You like both A and B but .hat is not love. You are piqued by A and your vanity is hurt. You are the type of girl who would marry any attractive boy whom you liked very much. And t that boy kept telling you that he loved you and that you were the most wonderful girl in the orld you would sell yourself the idea that you actually loved him. Then several years later—depcnd- ng on the circumstances—you would look back at the various boys .vho had told you they loved you and perhaps asked you to marry them and lament the fact that you tiad not married one of the others. Don't give up either of these two hoys. Continue to have both of them as your very good friends. So, there is no reason why your friend- hip with them should not continue as long as all three of you live. I suggest you do not marry any boy until you have dated him for at least a year. Your status now is that you prefer A to B. You should \ot give up A or B. Such feminine wiles are easily seen through and your tactics have not worked md arc liable to drive A away from yon. Then you—unless you become sensible and change—will jump into marriage with B or C or D and look back upon A as the one great love of your life. A's possessive-ness anrl resentment over your dating R may he inspired by you. Perhaps he is inclined to act this way of his own accord but I cannot help but feel that you are slightly responsible.
