Dear Mrs. Thompson: I am a young
man sixteen years of age and have
been keeping compdky with a girl
about the same age. I had a date
with her one night, but I did not come,
as I was working and I did not let her
know that I wasn't coming, so she got
very angry at that. But she broke
some dates with me and I did not say
anything. Now she says I cannot
come to see her any more. Whose
place do think it is to make up, mine
or hers. She is a nice girl and I hate
to give her up. What can I do to gain
ber frienship apain, if' it is my place
to make up? ABE.
You were rather inconsiderate, Abe,
when you broke your appointment with
her. She probably got all ready for
you. If you had let her know you
could not come it would have been all
right. The thing to do now is to go
to her and tell her that you know you
were wrong and you are very sorry,
and if she will accept your sincere
apology you will promise not to do
such a thing again that you will at
least try to notify her if it is impos
sible to keep an engagement with her.
If she is a nice girl, she will make up
