By DOROTHY ROE Associated Press Fashion Editor Time was wh»n those dainty, fril- At a recent inter-high school dance, Marge met a boy named Ed. He brought her home, kissed her and took her phone number. He did not call it .Then Marge met nim again. This time, he did call her. For two weeks, he ardently dated anincreasingly radiant and starry- eyed Marge. Then, without explanation he disappeared into silence once more. As a result, Marge had lost weight and sleep. She jumps nervously whenever the telephone rings. She is preoccupied and easily irritated. If her mother remonstrates, Marge brusts into reproachful tears and says. "You don't understand anything. I'm crazy about Ed. I love him, mother." Her parent writes, "Is there anything I can do to allay this lovelorn suffering?" Hate not love makes us suffer If Marge's mother can accept this as moral truth, she may be able to ease Marge's suffering. But she must go gently, f'or ner child has invested much emotional energy in the belief that she "loves" Ed- She may not be quite ready to look at the fears she hides from herself by calling her resentment of Ed "love." We human beings often tell our- j selves we "love" someone we resent because we depend on him. If we can believe that we "love" the per. son, we can avoid acknowledging our fear that without him, we are helpless. A child, for example, will believe that he "loves" a parent who mistreats him because he fears the parent would desert him if he knew how the child really felt. The intolerable fear that he will be deserted forces him to imgaine that his hate is love. In the same way, a young, girl, fearful that she is less attractive than her more popular friends, may believe that she loves a boy whom she depends on to relieve her of this fear. And when he mistreats her, she insists that her true resentment is love for him. So what Marge needs is not sympathy with the suffering imposed by unadmitted hate of Ed, but loving and reasonable reassurance of her confidence. If this reasurance is successful, Marge will begin to lose the tense, excited yearnings we feel for people/ whom we think can solve our problems for us. She will recover from . the hate we feel for those same people when they disappoint us. Th magic will go out of Ed so that he is no longer seen through the glorifying lens of Marge's sense of helplessness, but is seen as what he is—an indecisive boy At the Hospitals Blytheville Hospital Dismissed: Mrs. Waldren Smith, city Chickasawba Hospital Dismissed: Mrs. Thelma Treese and baby, city Mrs. Ermandean Justice and baby, city Bobbie Sue Terry, Cooter , Walls Hospital Dismissed: Mrs. Ernestine Hill and baby, Rives, Mo. Mrs. Marshall Green and baby, Armorel ly party dresses for little girls were reserved strictly for state occasions. Mothers couldn't face the prospect of weekly washing and ironing of the beruffled and lace- trimmed organdies and batistes. Today's easy-to-care-for miracle fabrics have changed all that, however, and this year there are more varieties of the new man-made fibers than ever before in children's dresses. Favorites for pint-size party dresses are the nylon sheers, which come in plain and printed fabrics, in dotted swiss effects, in shantung, dimity and seersucker weaves. They are being used in the crispest, daintiest kind of Sunday-best froc»;s which can be washed and dried in a few minutes and- need little or no ironing. In addition, the fragile-appearing fabrics retain their crispness and have unusual tensile strength, so that they can be worn every day, if desired. Most of the new children's clothes in nylon, Orion and Dacron are budget-priced, appealing on still another score to thrifty mothers. Many come with their own be- ruffled petticoats or detachable crinolines, to give skirts that important bouffant look. ; Girl Engineer BOZEMAN, Mont. tf) — A Montana coed is the first of her sex to win the Coldwater Industrial Engineering- award — a $500 fellowship — at Montana State College.
