. Dear Mr. Thompson: (1) I am a
girl of IS and have been keeping com
pany wiili a young man since last
summer. At present lie is away at
school, but we correspond regularly
and he comes home often. But don't
vou really think it all right for me
to go around w ith some of my other
gentleman friends onco in a while?
My mother seems to object, savins
trat it doesn't look right for a girl to
go with different young fellows. She
doesn't want me to go with anyone
but the one who is away at school.
He is certainly a fine young man and
is highly respected by everyone. But
as we are not exactly engaged, I see
no harm in me occasionally going with
other gentlemen friends, although I
am very' fond of him. I know he doesn't
go with any other girl. Will you kind
ly tell me what you think about it?
(.) What will cure dandruff?
( 1 ) Even if you were engaged to
the young man it would do uo harm
to go out occasionally with other men
provided he did not object and the
other men understood the situation.
J do not believe in a girl confining her
company strictly to one man. especial
ly if they are not formally engaged.
Too many men monopolize a girl with
out serious intentions on the man's
part, and then turn the girl down when
ail her other men friends have been
cared off. Yo-i can be loyal to your
friend who is away at school and at
the same time enjoy yourself to a rea-
boname extent, jie is prouauiy Having uted
