I am a girl of 19 and for the last six months I have been dating X, a 20-year-old boy. I liked him as a friend and really didn't, think I loved him until lately. He always has been jealous oC me. "I enjoyed X's company and t-he company o[ other boys, too. When X saw me with other boys or heard that I had been out with anyone else he got angry and didn't see me for a. week or two. When he got over being angry I didn't act as if anything hud happened. "Everyone knew we thought a great deal of. each other and yet it seemed as if they did everything the}' could to iimke us dislike one another. X has been dating a girl friend of mine lately and be told her that the reason he quit me was that he didn't date girls who dated other boys. He .knows this girl dates other boys and he has only dated her a few times. "I have tried to forgot X in every way possible but. the more I try tho j more 1 love. him. What do you ad- j vise me to do? j "Shorty" i "ANYWHERE YOU GO, SPARTON With built-in loop antenna A "prize-package" of i pleasure—plays anywhere, any i imo. on its own power or you may plug it in to play at home, office or hotel. $4195 21 EYERLY'S Dear "Shorty": You are behaving like a little child who has bad some dangerous implement such as a knife taken away from him and he prefers- what he has "lost" to the toys which he has. You want what you haven't got. You don't like X any more than you like several other boys whose "company you enjoy." You would feel just as you do about X should any of these other boys give you the air! Right now you are looking at X through rose-colored spectacles. Take off your glasses and see him as he actually is. Jealousy is a trait which does not improve with age and it is a trait to be avoided in anyone. Possessiveness and dictatorship is also a trait to be avoided and X goes off on a sulk if you do not adhere to his dictates and now, apparently, is on a prolonged sulk. Therefore you are headed for grief if you continue to idealize X and think you love him. You can forget him if you want to. You only imagine you can't! Betty Brainerd NAGGING GIRL-BRIDE "Dear Betty Brainerd: "I read your advice daily and think you can help me. lam a boy of 19 and have been married eight months and three weeks. My wife and I are both out of work and we are living with my parents. "We got along tiny while I was working bnt now that 1 am jobless my wife and 1 do not get along very well.

But when 1 tell her 10 go on home she gets mad and flares up about it. "She always is nagging at me about something. I do everything I can to please her hut nothing seems to help. 1 have thought of going away for a while but guess that wouldn't help much. Please answer as soon as possible as I would like to know what to do. "R. E. D." * * * Dear "R. E. D": Sit down and have a calm talk wiih your wife. Tell her that you married her because you loved her and that you love her more as the days pass so therot'ore you cannot understand why she is making you so unhappy by her false a<xus;uions of saying you are lazy and won't work; why she calls you a liar and why she nags at you about something for which you are in no way" responsible—and that is your being out of work. You impress me with your sincere desire to make a go of your marriage. Jobs are so scarce it is a pity that a young lad of your age with the responsibility of caring for a wife should be without work. I feel that you are rioing your utmost or you would not have written to me if you were not possessed with a very strong desire to (to everything within your power to make a success of your marriage.

PITTSBURGH. Aug. 8.—Pitt Tyson, president of the young Democratic Clubs of America, declared Monday he considered the Hatch political practices a"t "the most un- American piece of legislation that has been passed in the last 25 years." Manor, who came here from his home in Montgomery, Ala., for the National Convention uf the Young Democrats opening ou Thursday, added: "When I say un-American I mean that it is just -iot according to the principles on which this government was founded." The Act wa.s designed, among other things, to keep Federal em- ployes out of the active political field. "Under the Hatch Act," said Manor, "a man just because he works for the government has his hands tied. You get a good man in there, but his hands' are tied, and somebody else is going to take his place if he can't go out and battle for the principles for which he stands. "I am yet to find one young Democrat that's for it." Although Manor said he did not know if the convention would take formal action on the subject, President Joseph M. Barr, of the young Democrats of Pennsylvania, previously had predicted it would be attacked during the meeting.

Tell her I feel sure that a boy of. your qualities chose a wife of high qualities and ask her in the name of womanhood to face her responsibility and duty of wifehood. When she realizes Irow childish it is to threaten to "go home to mother" and to he a cry-baby and when you tell her gently how this hurts you 1 believe she will put away childish things and he a'considerate, affectionate wife to you. Nothing makes me happier ihan for a young- couple to work out their ditnculities and to find happiness.
