Our aunt Is visiting us and she has this newspaper sent to her so we read your column. Two mouths ago we moved to this city from another state so we do not know many boys The other night we met two boys, C and E, who asked us to go riding. We went and they conducted themselves very nicely. "Did we do wrong to go with them? Our aunt said we should not have gone but I do not see any barm in riding with nice boys, do you? We do not believe in drinking but these boys do. We went to a place where they sold drinks and danced but we did not drink. We do not see much harm in petting and smoking just a little so we did both. 'We are very much iu love with ihese boys. Do you think they iove us?

Toots is -IS and D is 20. Our aunt thinks there is too much difference between our ages. Do you think so? We tell her she is'too old-fashioned. Our aunt is going home soon, so please answer quickly and we will do as you say. "Beck and Toots." Dear "Beck and Toots": You Toots, should be ashamed of yourself being so much older than your sister or cousin and setting such a frightful example for her. Those boys are far from being "nice" and you two girls should never, have gone with them and should not have conducted yourselves so improperly when you did. agree with your aunt—and go much farther. At present there is too great a disparity between the ages of you two girlg. Beck is a child and Toots a young woman. Choose gin companions suitable to your ages. Beck is far too young to go with boys. It is up to an older girl to protect the younger one—not to lead her astray! It is all the more wicked and pitiful because Beck is your baby sister or cousin? Stop contaminating that child by your loose condct and vile standards. Have you. Toots, ever seen a cat or a dog or a bird protect its youung? I suggest you follow their example. BETTY BRAINERD. * * * Talk With Your Parent* Dear "Z": Have you told your parents that you are not in love with Z that you have no desire to be serious with him but that you enjoy his company and like him as a friend? If you have not, I suggest you be as frank with them as you are with me. Parents are not ogres. Xeither are they unreasonable. If you talk to them as you would to any fair-minded people who would listen to your opinions I am sure you will iron out your situation. It is impossible for them to know your feelings or your reasons unless you tell them. How is X not in your class?

Rela tives and members of the famil will gather from Washington, Hai risburg, Winchester, Strausburg Philadelphia, Florida, Hagerstown and many other places. The special speakers will be Rev C. L.

Cooper, the presi dent of the reunion and pastor o "the Arlington Nazarene Church Arlington, Va., will preside. Mrs. Mamie Cooper Hamilton is the secretary; George Cooper i treasurer; Mrs. Frank Fleet is chairman of the reunion arrange ments, and Mrs. Burl Piper is his torian.

An. ambitious ritan learns rapidly by association and by applying himself to improving your mind. It would be unfair of your parents to look down upon him if he is poor or if he does not go about in the same social circles as they. If he is an industrious, upright, honest young man that is what counts. Even any stigma against his family should not be held against him. Do not tell your parents X has asked you to marry him secretly. That is unfair of him and would be a deceitful thing of him to propose. I suppose he suggested this because he loves you and a man in love is eager to get the girl of his dreams in any possible way: Tell him you would not be a party to such deceit even if you loved him. Be honest with him and tell him you like him as a very dear friend but do not love him and that you do not wish to give him any wrong ideas. You must not lead him on. If your parents still insist that you do not see him after you have had a calm and frank discussion then you must not do so. You' will have to tell him that they want you to stop seeing him for a while so as to let him down gently. Time is a great healer and he will not suffer your loss so deeply as time passes. Be gentle when you tell him you can no longer date him. Put yourself in his place. Don't give him your parents' reasons—if they decide against him. BETTY BRAINERD.
