says, "and the boys come over in
crowds of three or four and we have
"My room is a long one with an
alcove where I can draw the curtains
in front of my bed and dressing table
and I have a Victrola that -belongs to
my brother, and I can play the gui
tar. "Shall I tell the boys to quit com.
ing? I don't want to but the girls
act so mean about it."
My dear girl, have all the boys you
want and that will come "in crowds
of three or four" for such innocent
pleasures as music and the company
of a pretty girl.
It is just as natural tor a girl to "Yes, it was a .funny thing. He
