FRANCE FOR FRENCHMEN Humboldt Republican — President Charles De Gaulle of France has ordained that forces of any other nafion must be withdrawn from French soil by April 19, 1969, or be put under French command. Of course things could change in three years. He might not be president and he might change his mind. The United States is represented heavily in Germany, where the greatest danger against Communist action remains. We have in France ground and air troops with large supply depots. Many French nationals are employed in supply depots, thus boosting the French economy. Having supplied most of the armed strength and economic aid, the United States has shown a security role far above that of France and other European nations which it has protected. The greatest danger no longer is in Europe. We need our troops and money elsewhere. We might recall a statement of Andrew Jackson at'New Orleans when a planter asked for troops to protect his cotton from the British and was given a rifle with the admonition: "No one is better able to guard cotton than the man who owns it." France might take some steps to provide its own protection. * * * When people achieve what they are after, then they simply raise their sights. There is probably no such thing as general contentment. And that is not bad — it is good. It goes back to the idea of either moving forward or backward. There is actually no such thing as *stand still." -Audubon County Journal For And About Teenagers) HP Mow's THAT I LIKE HIM VERV MUCH,,. \ THE WEEK'S LETTER: "I am • girl in the eighth grade. I am 13'/ 2 . And my friends consider me cute. I happen to like a particular boy. I have liked him (or « year. But, he doesn't seem to like me. He knows that I like hitn very much. I try to be nice to him, but I am afraid that sometimes I start to "show off". Being nice to him doesn't help, so what should I do? I could get another boyfriend if I tried, but I want him! What should I do? He doesn't have a girlfriend." OUR REPLY: If this boy is chances are that he likes you but not interested in another girl, he is not, as yet, interested in having a girlfriend. He might become interested tomorrow, next week, or maybe not for a long time. He will like you, if you like him, unless you go overboard with the "show off" routine. The average boy does not like a girl who is a "show off", who is "loud" or too aggressive. This does not mean a girl has to be a stick-in-the-mud. Being friend- ly in a quiet way is more the order of the day. Once you have established the fact that you like the boy it is not necessary to prove it over and over again. Begin to play it cool. Continue to be friendly, always speak. But, let him begin to wonder if you still like him.

SACK TO A FLIRTING SECRETARY there appeared here recently ft letter (roih A vivacious young secretary, calling herself Nylon Nellie, who sought to put retirement-age men in their place. Now conies a rebuttal, from a gray, haired man who has been dealing with pretty secretaries in his office for many years: Dear Nellie: Your letter indicates you have ft tendency to be a flirt and to tease with your short skirts and well-rounded legs. You should always remember that we older men look and touch but never buy when it's too obvious. Over the years we have seen you come and go in our office, and learned from experience your cute little ways of endeavoring to secure that better secretarial job. We have encouraged you with a not-so-paternal pat, tried to hide our quiver as we gazed through your sweeping eyelashes so many times, knowing full well you believed you were really charming us. If you had encouraged us, we would really have run and not stalked you as you hopefully believed. It has happened several times that a tight sweater really did proposition. But she didn't work for us very long. But Nellie, don't let our gray hair or lack of it fool you. With a little more experience with men, and more maturity, you will realize that you, also, are not so glamorous. Too many of you actually believe what your mothers told you about mean old men and young girls. But we have too many years and too much experience that bad, though we are interested in good grooming, personality, along with what you think we want. What you have to offer is no prize. And anyway, we couldn't take a chance with.our reputation, company, or family. So we pat you on the shoulder and drop a joke occasionally, and don't feel at all silly because we have been doing it for years with so many others. We enjoy your hand on our arm as we are going for coffee or heading home at night, but we are not so impressed as you might believe. Our pension, Social Security, and insurance are pretty far re. moved from your eager little clutches ... if we had any ideas about marrying you ... so don't believe all you read in the movie magazines.
