MRS. DOROTHY RICKER JI-W nF,S_MOINKS Sl'NDAV REOtSTER July 27.J1M How to Avoid Temper Tantrum Dorothy Rkker's TTfrS FOR TKKNS D O YOU SOMETIMES blow your stack — and end up either making enemies or feeling foolish? Quick-tempered outbursts create complicated problems for some te^n- agers. When your temper pops out of control, it nearly always adds up to new troubles for you. Of course, everybody has reason to be angry at times. When somebody Is mean to you or takes advantage of others, it is normal for you to feel righteous indignation. But temper tantrums are not good, and if temper happens to be one of your problems, learning how to control the pop-your- cork feelings can make your life much happier. I'anse and Count T HK MOST OFTEN recommended cure for temper is to pause ami count to in. II doesn't always work, though. Sometimes you may feel so angry you could count to 100 and still blow up. It is time, then, to do more than count. The first step is to try to understand the real reason you feel so angry. Are you steaming because the cupboard door slammed on your finger? Are you furious because someone in school said something you didn't like? Are you all shook because someone failed to call you as they said they would? And perhaps you may even be. mad at yourself for flubbing some opportunity or for not doing something you know you should have done. O NCE YOU PAUSE for a moment to decide what it is you are really mad at, you may already be on your way to restoring your cool, as the saying goes. If it is somebody else who has aroused your temper, stop to ask yourself why they have acted this way. Was it pure meanness on their part? Was it stupidity? Was it just a lack of understanding? Of course, a fit of temper only adds to the problem. Try to talk out a situation with the other person. Perhaps both of you may be wrong and a little understanding will clear up the problem. When you cannot. taJJ< over a situation with other persons or if you feel you are'absolutely and unchangeably opposed to their point of view, it is often wise to avoid a head-on collision and drop the subject for the present. Most arguments do not have to be settled on the spot. They'll keep — and chances are a better solution will be found when you are not so hot under the collar. Write Yourself n Letter A T TIMES YOU MAY FEEL completely frustrated he- cause you cannot deal directly with the cause of your aggravation. When you are unable to talk it out. the next best thing is to write yourself a letter, and never mail it. The process of organizing your thoughts and putting them on paper often helps you see the cause of the problem more accurately and once ypu have gotten it off your chest, even on paper, you feel better. By this time your emotions will be under better control. Perhaps your temper has been inflamed by some family situation at home and there seems to be no way you can change the situation or win an argument or do anything about it at all. When you feel completely blocked, it is sometimes better to get away from it all; take a walk, go to another room, visit a friend — just take yourself out of the picture until you cool off. When you feel that you are about to explode, get busy on something which requires active, muscular effort, such as mowing the lawn, cleaning your room — anything which will keep your mind occupied for a while. Loss of Hair I In Children j Sudden hair loss, or Alopecia. | areata among children, may be caued by emotional crises, report doctors at the Children's Hospital Medical Center in Boston. Temporary or permanent loss of hair may be triggered by things like weaning, abandonment, birth of siblings, or traumatic accidents. CLEMENTS IEACH O> l*ke MM OkoMf BMMHUI MtcfNM •*- eanmatuUtm.

Letters full of questions from young travelers are piled high on my desk again. Here are a few of them with some answers. Q. My draft classification is 1A. Does this mean I cannot leave the country even for summer travel? A. Selective service law requires that you report any change in your personal status —including location. You cannot travel outside the Continental United States and its possessions without first obtaining permission from your local draft board. Q. How can I arrange to live with a family in a foreign country for a few weeks? A. The experiment in International Living is the oldest and largest exchange organization and has a variety of programs for persons 16 to 30 in 50 countries. Each features a one-month slay with a family in a host community abroad, followed variously by a few weeks spent in travel or in a work or field study project, or by a semester in a study program. A summer language camp is offered to teen-agers — five weeks of intensive language study in the United States followed by a three-week home stay with a family in a foreign country. International Career Training is a 12-month program, which includes home stay and work experience abroad to Atop Lookout Mountain Spectacular view here is of Lover's Leap and High Falls at Rock City, a 10-acre tourist attraction atop Lookout Mountain (2,091 feet), near Chattanooga, Tenn. A new feature is Mother Goose Village, located in the Fairyland Caverns. In September Louisiana — Morgan City's Shrimp Festival and Blessing of the Fleet Sept. 1. New Jersey — Miss America contest at Atlantic City Sept. 2-6. Michigan — Old Car Festival at Dearborn Sept. 6-7. Oregon — Round-Up and Happy Canyon Pageant at Pendleton Sept. lO-ll Georgia — Water Skiers Tournament at Callaway Gardens Sept. 13-14. Wisconsin — Fall Festival at Wisconsin Dells Sept. 18-20. California — International Jazz Festival at Monterey Sept. 19-21. prepare graduate students for administrative careers with international organizations. For details write to Inquiries Secretary. The Experiment, Putney, Vt. 05346. Youth for Understanding is another international exchange program. Teen-agers 16 to 18 live with western European, Mexican, South American or Japanese families for two months. For information write Youth For Understanding, Inc., Teen-Age Exchange Program, 1930 Washtenaw ave., Ann, Arbor, Mich. 48104. Q. I have heard so much about all the discounts for Njiolclers of an international student identity card. Who is eligible? A. Until recently only students attending college and students in college within two years prior to application : ware eligible. Now a new international pre-college student identity card is available to American high school students for $2 from any NSTA office. Q. I plan to spend the summer in France and Belgium. Beyond bonjour and merci my French is nil. Can I take a short course abroad? A. An excellent idea. American students planning to spend two or three weeks or longer in a major European city can inquire upon arrival about foreign language courses — some very inexpensive — at the local Union of Students office. Tourists Save Tombstone TOMBSTONE, A R 1 1. Known as "the town too tough to die," Tombstone today owes its life to the tourist. It was teetering on oblivion's edge — almost became a ghost town — until the Tombstone Preservation Sdciety.was formed and started to work assembling old landmarks like the O.K. Corral, the famous Epitaph, Tombstone's newspaper, and Schiefflin Hall, known as the largest adobe building in the U.S. The front page of the Epitaph is printed in the sa^e format used in the 1880's. News of today's world is reported in yesteryear journalistic style. The Epitaph received its name after the founder-editor, John Clum, said "every Tombstone needs its Epitaph." The name Tombstone came about when prospector Ed Schiefflin was told by cavalry in the area that he would find .only his tombstone in the region where he proposed to mine. What tourists always look at in Tombstone: Wells Fargo Museum, Wyatt Earp Museum; Rose Tree Inn Museum; the Histororama in Schiefflin Hall; St. Paul's Episcopal Church (oldest Protestant church in Arizona, built in 1882); Bird Cage Theater with original 1881 fixtures: Camillas Fly Studio with Old West pictures, 5===S=5S= PANORAMIC RESORT DOC'S LODGE ON STONY POINT OF LEECH LAKE NEAREST BEST FISHING SPOTS FISHERMEN FAMILIES 'Modern collages, BIG BOATS, motors, harbor, level grounds, beach.
