With Sally Ann
■ ■CK®. I
Dear Sally Ann:
There is a darling boy who has just
this term started going here to school.
I know only part of his name and
what he looks like. Now, I want to
meet him, but don't know how, as we
don't seem to have any mutual friends,
and he ' might resent It if I try to
smile at him. You see, I am a blonde,
and he might not be a gentleman. Do
tell me how to get around this stump.
My Dear Jane: If he sees this letter and recognizes himself, everything
will be o. k., won't it? I imagine there
are quite a few "darling" boys around
here who will hope they are the ones
who have aroused the interest of so
attractive a girl as you. If you want
to met him, use all your psychology
of concentration, and I'm sure mings
will be arranged. I advise you to be
very careful of making advances, however, for, although any boy would appreciate a smile from a pretty girl,
men still love to chase, you know. So
let him make the first advames and
Here's best of luck.
Dearest Sally Ann: In spite of the
fact that I am your solicitor and ought
to absorb some of your Intelligence, I,
too, need advice and must al»peal to
your famous omniscience. A certain
boy with whom I have been going for
sometime is a darling, altogether
lovely to me, the personification of
courtesy and thoughtfulness, a very
entertaining conversationalist, and I
might add, very popular with both
boys boys and girls. It is quite obvious that he likes me, but here's the
rub. Almost every time we are together, he talks for sometime about the
different girls he has gone with and
the other girls he goes with occasionally now. Most boys harp a little on
that, but this boy "extremes" It to a
fault. Just what do you think Is his
object in this, if any, and what should
I do about it?
Dear Louise: The first thing that
pops into the mind would be to give
him a little of his own sauce, not
spread too thickly, but humorously
enough like his own talk to get him
puzzled and wondering whether he i3
being made fun of or not. Nothing
shuts a man up sooner! But this
may give him a sense of pique and
result in sulks that would be worse
than bis girl-discussions. So you have
a matter of choice and here are all
by best wishes for your success!
Dear Sally Ann: If you cannot give
advice in your columns without giving
away my name and the names of the
principals in this little story, you had
better not print this letter. The boy is
my best friend, and I am writing this
In hopes that you may give advice
that I, his best friend, could not. He
is a very popular boy at H. J. C, and
the girl, a most attractive lltle brunette, is also very popular. They are
both crazy about each other and are
thinking of having a secret marriage.
Now, I think that would be a terrible
thing to do at such a criitcal point in
their lives. The boy has a very small
position in a large business concern
here, and his future success depends
so mirch on his education. The parents of the girl, also, expect ner to
go on through college. I am hoping
that their better judgment will pull
them through, but here seems to be
nothing I can do or say. Please let
me sign lust,
Dear "Boy Friend": I admire your
attitude in this matter very much. Al-
Ihough it is positively against my

TJtMl BY JURY' GETS
PRAISE FROM CRITICS
Clever comedy, lively romance, and
excellent acting marked the success
of "Trial by Jury," the first musical
comedy to be staged by Junior College students. The play, presented
on the evening of March 13, was a satire on a breach of promise suit, and
furnished one of the most entertaining assembly periods of the year.
The plaintiff, Alpha Adams, was
appealing as a broken-hearted maiden, who, despite her sorrow, carried
on quite pointed flirtations with the
judge, the jury and the other masculine members of the court whose
sympathies were all with her. So successful was she, in fact, that it was
easy to see from the very start that
the learned judge, T. L. Walker, was
happy that the intended wedding had
turned into a breach of promise suit.
On the other hand, the defendant,
Jack Thurman. proved quite as adept
in capturing the affections of the
bridesmaids, especially that of the
lovely first bridesmaid, Jane With-
erspoon, who seemed to have been
the cause of the broken promise.
Legal counsel for the plaintiff was
Nicholas Peet. and his arguments, together with the flirtations of his fair
client, proved very effective in convincing tbe jury of the dastardly conduct of the defendant.
The defendant pleaded his own
case and had it not been that the
jury was prejudiced, would prooably
have beer, successful in convincing
them that ho was in the right. His
part was especially well played.
Carroll Uonatella, as foreman of the
jury, and Bob McCullough as usher,
through their clever byplays added
much humor throughout the entire
Members of the jury were: George
Telge, Martin Lowe, D. Lang, John
Aleo, James Oliver, Bill Jeter, Richard McAfee and Robert Moechel.
The bridesmaids' chorus included
Jane Wltherspoon, Lois Dawson, Louise Forrest, Portia Cleves, Nurlce- Bul-
lard, Thelma Scales, Ruth Leggett
and Magdeline Sbole.
The operetta was directed by Mrs.
Adams and sponsored by Mrs. Ben-
rules, knowing you and the principals
In this case, I see that it is best that
you do not sign your name. I have disguised the principals a little more in
your letter, because, If their secret is
divulged, it will only make matters
-orse. But I must advise you to stop,
■orrying, "Boy Friend," because,
rusting to the good sense of
the persons concerned, I am \uite
sure everything will come out all
right. As it now stands, and I think
you have stated the case very clearly,
it is obvious that, for their own future
happiness and welfare, they should
wait a few years before taking that
important step in their lives—marri
age. Of course, it is wrong to forbid
any young couple to marry, because
aren't always sure just how things
will turn out. but I think a good dose
of caution ia advisable in all cases. 1
sincerely hope that if they see this it
will do some good in their case.
