C -However, the black-market opcr- 'aiors^have-a much greater hold on 'France than on most other coup- tries .The reason is that this illicit .tiadtng was deliberately iostered by tHe i Germans during their occupation, v;ith the idea of breaking down French morale and giving »thc-,Rcich a stronger hold. The Hit- tlerites. who daily were taking mountainous reparations from the .French gove-rament, encouraged •'the 'farmer to cater to their needs "'by paying him high prices with France's own money. Thus the end of the war found him unwilling to -'•give up his big profits, and this -lact -contributed heavily to the •black-market evil.

This is always, a mistake, because no mailer ho\v :;oucl and kind Ihc husband i:;, or how much money he given his wife. ;;hc goes Ihrough life fecliiu; lhal she hus made a terrible mistake and sacrifice. So let your girl have a go al her career.

ANSWER: Any girl who thinks she can reform a drunken, good- for-nolhing boy by marrying him has simply taken leave of all of her good, common sense. Don't delude yourself into thinking thai you can make a man oul of him. No woman is a miracle-worker, and you cannot put back-bone in a weakling, nor cure a drunkard's thirst, nor exercise the fatal fascination thai the gambling table has for the gambler. So if you have any intelligence whatever, or any regard for your happiness, I urge you not to marry Ihis boy. You may pine for him, bul you won't, regret missing him as you will regret it if you marry him. (Bell Syndicate. Inc.)
