Intd tU Uttm tot ABBS1 WALLACE. P. O BOX If. ATLANTA. GEORGIA,
L s D— I have a home but it is so far
from my work and I don’t get to gr
there but a few times a month now and
I want to know if I should se’l it or
rent it out? Tell me what to do as 1
am so fond of the place?
Ans: Rent it out. I don’t favor youi
selling the p'ace when there is a possi
bility of your getting married again and
you will no doubt prefer to go out oo
this place to live. You can at least
realize enough to keep up the taxes on
the place.
B K— Am I thinking wrong about my
husband and this woman? I have been
thinking it for a long time but was not
sure. And the man I have been seeing
I am not satisfied to see him any more
and 1 want to know if 1 should «ud
seeing him?
Ans: What are you two trying to do
play games to make one another jealous?
Yes, it'd be to your advantage to give
up this other party for you aren’t get
ting any happiness out of this kind of
life. Show your husband a little more
affection and he wiil behave himself
Both of you are too old to start any
of this foolishness.
L O H— I am now employed on a local
job but X would like to try out for a
better job in the city. Should I file
the application?
Ans: Yest indeed do it immediately
marry him? :r ^
Ans: No, he won’t marry you. Neither
does he want to give up hi* charming
wife and baby for you. Stop this flir
tation at once and don’t let this man
. try to ke p you fooled any longer. You
1 can’t hope to accomplish a thing in thii
world but a bad name by going with i
married man and it is time you realized
as much. By the way—hi* wife is jea
' lous and she isn’t going to fake one
tiling from you or any other girl chas
ing around after her husband. There
are several young single fellows whc
wou’d love the chance to make youi
acquaintance—get out and meet more
people. j
Ans: It will be several months before
he is in a position to get married—if
at that time you still feel that you are
in love with this man—go ahead and
get married.
M X C— I want to study and become
a nurse but my aunt is trying to tell
my mother to make me get a Job. Dc
you think I could be a good nurse and
am I suited for this work?
I
! Ans: Make an effort to enter nurse
; training this fall as I feel you would
make a very capable nurse. Your aunt
| doesn’t realize that you want to prepare
(yourself to help out with the other
I children and you certainly could dc
.more if you had a profession. Your mo
ther will not allow her to influence her
to any greet extent
Take the trip into the city and file
