Transcript THE COUGAR With Sally Ann ■ ■CK®. I l'@>«- 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. Anxiously, JANE WITHERSPOON. 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 like it! Here's best of luck. SALLY ANN. 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? Sincerely, LOUISE FORREST. 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! SALLY ANN. 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, BOY FRIEND. Dear "Boy Friend": I admire your attitude in this matter very much. Al- Ihough it is positively against my PRINTERS STATIONERS . . . STANDARD Printing and Litho. Co.

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 program. 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.
