Dating Boils Down to Basic Quandaries The art of dating may still be the same , as in Grandma's day a gill chases a fellow until he catches her. But it's more fun when young to know the rules of the game. Dating itself boils down to two basic quandaries how. to get . a date and what to do once you get Between the two,, teen-agers and many adults brew , up more trouble for themselves . than the merry witches of "Macbeth." ' A Chicago family and marriage counselor feels teen-agers . have more fun and feel more secure if they know at least how to approach these two problems as they are practiced today. In "The Art of Dating," Dr. Evelyn Duvall runs through , dating problems that never grow old. v . . As - a -mother of two children, Dr. Duvall had a sood laboratory to observe voung dating pangs. Al though -today's teen-agers begin dating earlier than previous gener ations, she found the same stumbling blocks. They .want to know what to say, where to go, how much to spend, what time to be home, about blind dates, dating older students, . where - to : meet someone new, some facts-," on sex and marriage. - . ' For a girl who "wants ; to begin dating, she says: "took about for some pleasant, shy, interested fellow in your own grade (or. a 'class or so beyond; rather than wistful Iy pine for an older inaccessible Today's Teen-Agers Face Age Old Dating Problem: "What Do You Do When You Get One?" man about town vat star atn- lete)." - Also, she " points out, some young men- just aren t ready to date. A young girl must bide her time with others, or have the chap over to play records or fix a butterfly collection, -until he shows in terest in dating. A lmiinn man lipfilnmno t Antp " ,'"""6 6 t would do well to .sidestep the prom queen, Dr. Duvall says. He should develop his poise with a nice, quiet young thing. He won't suffer as much from a- possible rebuff, and chances are he will be prepared for any queen that comes along later. Many persons, remember a first date, because something funny happened. They laugh now. But" at the time a ' goof by a gauche, stumbling lad. or a blush ing girl wasn't humorous. It was a catastrophe. And it still is, when you're growing up. J -"Through discussion on what to do on a date and the incidents that may occur, such books as "The Art of Dating" at 'least give young daters a springboard. With teen-agers : taking a stand for more mid-week dating it looks as though they will need it.-'.-. As things are now, among high school students 31 per cent of the boys and 40 per cent of the girls started to date before they were 14 years old, according to- a Purdue University poll. However, the survey also found that in the 10th, 11th and 12th grades one out of eight teen-agers doesn't do any dating at all.' ' . "' When asked at what age teenagers should have a first date,' 41 per 'cent said 13 or 14 years old and 46 per cent said 1 5 or 1 6. HYDROX loves parties - Dr. Duvall points out that this indicates many teen-agers date before they really think they should. - Behind this, are many things. Parents may encourage dating and some boys and girls may be readv for dating. The amount of social experience a young person has and social opportunities open to a given age or social set will determine how soon and bow .'often -he or she dates. ''.'..' .. .

" HOUSEHOLD TIPS FOR GG CARTONS Members .of the Homemaker's Forum, who exchange household hints they have discovered for themselves, have a habit of saving all sorts of odds and ends and then putting them to good use. .
