WHAT IS LOVE? DON'T YOU
KNOW? READ AND LEARN.
At last love and friendship have
been clearly defined.
The fine distinctions in affection
have been calendared by a Los An
geles schoolboy in the fourth grade,
whose essay on "Love and Friend

when they switch you THEY SAY
IT'S LOVE but that ain't love
where you want to hug."
