Denr Mrs. Thompson: A gentleman
has been keeping company with me
for eight years and I think a great

other girls were concerned, for he has

I have given up so much for him, but
was glad to.
Two weeks ago I found he had been
calling a sentcgrapher who is em
ployed In the Bame office with him,
"sweeheart," "honey," etc., and she
Is married and he knew it. Because
of his actions to her she thought he
cared for her. He went as far as to
make an engagement with her and
when she accepted he laughed and
told her he was only joking.
He knows I am jealous and sensi
tive when he is concerned and I have
tested him In little ways and found
he is too. I told him I did not con
sider his behavior becoming or digni
fied and he was not doing right by
me. He said I misconstrued his ac
tions and that he only did those things
because the other men did. I said
that- was no excuse and he became
After finding that out I fear I will
never have confidence in him again.
Am I right in feeling hurt? He says
I am not. I am not a silly girl, but
one old enough to give a deep.true,
loyal love. There can be no half way
for me. RAGS AND TATTERS.
It is no wonder that what you have
learned has shaken your faith in the
man. It is unfortunate that certain
men think it necessary to "joke" and
be "funny" with working girls. The
girls, of course, are somewhat to
blamo or they would not permit such
treatment. At the same time, you
want to consider the man you love
above anything so cheap. It would
hardly sem that he Is worthy of you.
Eight years is a long time to 'wait for
any one person. If I we're you I would
not give him so much of my time, and
I would go with other young men, too.

KEEP OH WITH-WAR
WORK, IS REQUEST
We must keep on with all our war
efforts until we are informed by the
officials at Washington that we may
stop, is the essence of a. letter receiv
ed by W. W. Reller, chairman of the
Wayne County Council of Defense.
The letter stated that there are
grave possibilities of the danger of a
continuation of public demonstrations
based on unfounded rumors of peace.
Such demonstrations if war activities
were let up would only aid the enemy.
It also .reminded the people that even
though an armistice should be con
cluded there are still great problems
to be confronted in the future.
"We are bound to keep faith with
our allies who need all the food, all
the material and perhaps added sums
of money that can be furnished them.
No lessening of the determination of
our organization will serve. We must
maintain the morale of the second line
of defense until our boys return."

A different way of celebrating
Thanksgiving Day this year has been
suggested by the state council of de

points out, is the, most personal and
quietest of all American holidays. It
is solely American, and offers a bet
ter opportunity than more boisterous
festivals for comradeship, which Gros

as "the very root of true American

opportunity to make clear to him the
meaning of America.
