"It doesn't hurt men to be jeal
ous," declared Virginia, smiling at
no almost wistfully across her
luncheon table.
"Jim isn't jealous—he hasn't any
cause to be!" I returned all the
more firmly because 1 didn't un
derstand my own business. "But

people in trouble do turn to," in
sisted Virginia.
"Well, he's coming now. We'll
make the best of it. And if I get in
a row with Jim over it you'll de
fend me!"
"Why tell him?" asked Virginia
"Oh, I wouldn't deceive Jim" —
"I wouldn't have you. You're
honest, little Anne. I've always
known that."
As Virginia spoke we smiled at
each other in the beginning of un

Virginia gave me honesty for

but I can't make friends easily or
trust too quickly. Friends hurt us
too much when they have the power.
That's why I think it would do Jim
a lot of good to be jealous of Tony.
"You mean you think Jim is the
sort of man who would admire his
wife all the more because he thinks
she's attractive to other men?" I
Before Virginia could reply the
maid announced "Mr. Norreys." and
we ended our discussion by press
ing it down and extinguishing its
very embers the way a man puts
out a cigarette—only the cigarette
is smoked to the end, and our dis
cussion had hardly begun.
Even while I was greeting An
thony Norreys 1 wondered if I could
ever persuade Virginia to ease her
heart by telling me in concrete
fashion just what she had meant
by "I can't trust too quickly. Friends
hurt us too much when they have
the power."
Was Virginia remembering Pat
Dalton or was she warning me
against Jim?"
An atmopshere of peace came into
the room with Anthony Norreys.
Virginia's troubles and mine
seemed suddenly very far away.
Even the worry over Betty began
to lessen. Now that this thin-faced,
worn-looking man, with his ice-blue
eyes and farm voice, had come to
our aid, I felt sure we should find
Betty Boyle.
"And you say there's no clue? The
Vocational Education people have i
lost track of Betty; there isn't a'
sign of her over at
and the day there isn't everf-ka word
from Terry—poor lad."
That was how Mr. Norreys sum- i
med it all up, and I repeated after '
hi m:
"There's no clue; not the least !
sign of a clue."
He smiled at me gravely, like a i
kind big brother, and shook his :
' But there is a clue, child. There's
always a clue. Just now we're all j
blind to it, but before long we shall j
see it."
"We've done everything." In in
sisted sadly. if stubbornly.
"Then let's do more go over
everything again," said Mr. Nor
reys. Then he turned to Virginia.
"Where did you first meet Betty,
"Out at a little inn" began Vir
But I leaped to my feet and flung
out my arms in sudden joy.
"Miss Moss!" I cried, "Miss Moss
—she'll tell us! Oh, Anthony Nor
reys, you've found the clue!"
I was babbling like a child one
minute; and the next Anthony Nor
reys had calmed me down and I
was explaining what I meant and
how I had come to think of it.
"You asked Virginia where she
first met Betty. And you said 'Vee'
—that's Phoebe's name for Virginia
—so it flashed across my mind that,
when you two first met. Phoebe was
probably always along."
"Oh. Anne, what has that to do
with it?" cried Virginia impatiently",
"Rut it has everything to do with
it, Vee. dear," said the man so sooth
ingly and kindly that the threat-

ened friction didn't stop my mind
from running: along the track on
which it had started.
"Well, then —I thought of the lit

and who was always along—a
funny little woman with a face I
thought was wabbly like a poached
And her name came to me. It
was Miss Moss, Betty's companion.
Kor a long time 1 haven't seen her,
but if Betty is ill or in trouble, she
might have her again. Betty would
get a paid companion instead of
bothering any of her friends. She
would," I declared almost breat
lessly as I concluded my long
"You know Betty. She would do
just that:" declared Anthony Nor

"Do you know how to find her?" i

Advice to the Lovelorn
Dear Miss Fairfax:
I am eighteen and have been going
about with a young man four years
my senior for three months. He ask
ed me several times to marry him,
but I have always refused for the
simple reason that he has not as yet
asked my father's permission, and
also that I think I have plenty of
time in which to get married. Now,
Miss Fairfax, my family are all
against him for no special reason and
have repeatedly told me, though they
have not as yet demanded that I
give him up. I know you will tell me
to talk it over with my parents, but
I have done so over and over again.
i but to no avail. When I asked my
I friend when he is going to ask my
father he always tells me that he
: will the first chance he gets, but he
always seems to put it oft. * G. R.
Why don't you try to give your
family a better opinion of this young
man before you insist on the mo
i mentous interview? Surely you wish
j him to be received favorably. Or are
, you so little in love with him that
j you are indifferent as to his success
; with your parents?
| Dear Miss Fairfax:
I am going about with a young
1 man whom I have grown to regard
,as more than a friend. The only
| thing that I do not like about him
|is that he smokes a great many
j cigarets. I have asked him to stop
| smoking, and we have many argu-
I ments. Do you think I am right in
'asking him to stop?
It is a reasonable thing to ask and
it will be greatly to the young man's
advantage if he gives up smoking
for your sake. I wish that all young
men who smoke excessively could be
persuaded to make this sacrifice.

A Series of Plain Talks to
Prwidtti of the P,rents Auocjatkn,
Not all child training problems
can be solved by dealing with the
child alone.
Sometimes a constant cause of
trouble is found in the methods of
certain adult relatives who never
have acquired the fine habit of at
tending strictly to their own busi
"When we happen to be fortunate
enough to determine the exact
cause of trouble, we should strive
to remove that cause, no matter
what it chances to be.
Some mothers told me they hesi
'^t e d to speak to their relatives, lest
they become offended. But the sub
ject can be talked over in a most
friendly way and without hurting
anyone s feeling in the least.
Let us take a typical case. One
mother writes to me;
"I have a 'Grandparent Prob
lem.' My husband's parents who
live only a few steps away simply
idolize my five-year-old son. There
isn't a thing under Heaven, reason
able or unreasonable, that they
won't give him if he only wants it.
They try in every way to shield him
from punishment and whenever he
wants anything he runs to them,
even after I have refused. This is
provoking. He now will hardly
pay any attention to what I say.
I want your help."
The grandparents of your five
year-old son seem to have suc
ceeded in spoiling him. Some rel
atives seem to be especially adept
at this.
But it really is a serious matter
and if I were you I would deal
directly with the grandparents. Go
and have a talk with the one who
seems to be the principal offender.
If It Is the grandmother, tell her j

| you want to ask a friendly favor of
her. Tell her that you believe your
j five-year-old son is old enough to
; be taught to obey.
1 Continue somewhat like this: "I
I think one mistake 1 have made in
■ the past is to tell him to do some
thing and then let him get off with
, out doing it, which naturally en
couraged him in the habit of dis
obeying. What I should have done
i was to give a command only when
I really needed to have him do
something and then insist that he
i must do it. If I had made this a

| 1 want to start in now and carry out
j this rule, so that whenever I give
: him a command, he must carry it
! out. You will help me to teach him,
won't you?"
By admitting your own mistake
■ and not finding fault with her. you
do not antognize the grandparent,
j and since you put up a request in a
friendly way and ask only what

| once pledge her co-operation and
| help you.
Do not allow her to take vour
j request in an unfriendly way. Be
; that she understands your
I kind and proper attitude and she
very probably will respond favor
ably. Of course, if she should be
unreasonable after you have given
more than half way to get her co
operation, do not say unkind words
to her; simply leave her with a
slight smile to show that you 4iave
perfectly self-control and" do not
allow your son to visit her at all.
Build up in your son a greater
love and respect for you. This can
be done through ply. Make him
have a good time, and, while under
your supervision, give him practice
in executing various little orders for
you which will promote his play. He
thus will learn to love you more as
a result of this companionship and
at the same time his obedience of
your orders will become a habit.

Life's Problems
Are Discussed
What is the next thing you are go
ing to do?
Everybody has some pet plan or
purpose in view, some project or am
bition he has long cherished, but
which for one reason or another he
has never been able to carry out.
To take an illustration from the
most familiar, I have never yet
known ah author who did not have
! an especial story which he wanted to
I write, which he fully intended some
time to write, and yet which some
how never gets written. And I sup
| pose, the same rule holds in every
! other vocation—with the inventor
| and the musician, the artist, the
i salesman, the manufacturer, the me
! ehanic,' the farmer and the financier.
And the reason Is that every one
of us fritters away his time. We are
as prodigal with our minutes and
even our half-hours as we used to be
i in the old wasteful, pre-Hoover days
with our sugar and our flour.
Now time, as we all learned from
our copy-books, Is money. But it is
more than that—wisely used, it is
reputation, success, th e very pinnacle
lof achievement. It is man's most
I valuable asset, and the one he usually
j values least, until he sees it running
! low. Think what it might have meant
!to the science of aviation if a few
| more years had been granted to Wil
bur Wright, to American literature if
j Jack London and O. Henry had staid
with us a little longer. Think what
j it would have meant to human prog
! ress if Abraham Lincoln had lived
through another decade.
Yet we all squander time as reck
lessly as the proverbial drunken
sailor does his pay. We allow our
selves to be drawn off constantly into
side issues of the most doubtful ad
vantage to ourselves if any. We per
mit ourselves to be imposed on by
time sponges and deadbeats, and lack
the rterve to call a halt on It.
The most Important person In the
world to each of us Is himself, and
(he one whose claims should be first
considered. I don't mean by that to
uphold selfishness or a lack of pub
lic spirit. One owes something both
to his neighbor and to the commun
ity in which he lives. But one has a
right to resent being robbed.
In a great emergency, such as we
have Just passed through, and where
so many were freely offering their
lives, it was not too much to ask that
one should give all, both of time and
of substance. But we are returning
now to normal conditions, and in view
of the wreckage of war and the great
amount of work to be done, it stands
us all In hand to take stock of what
we have and make careful provi
What, then, of the great asset.
Time? We have seen how by a con
certed effort of the whole people to
restrict waste in just a few staples
vast tons of those commodities have
been saved, and that, too, without
actual hardship to anybody. Imagine
then the years and centuries and ages
of wasted time that could be saved if
a similar effort were applied in that
And that does not mean any
diminuation of the periods we give
up to amusement and relaxation and
seeing our friends and the calls of
charity or public service and the
pursuit of our various hobbies, As a
matter of fact, we should probably
have more leisure for all those
things. It simply means we should
do with our time as the housewives
did with food, and keep an eye on the
garbage pail.
This is an era of budgets. The fa
vorite indoor sport this winter, I un
derstand, is to gather around the
family lamp with pencil and paper
and fund the family income. Every
magazine one picks up has a half
dozen or more advertisements of vari
ous systems to promote domestic
economy. The old dragon, the High
Cost of Living, is being assailed on
every side by valiant St. Georges
armed with carefully ruled columns
and methodically entered figures.
; If it's a good plan to budget one's
finances, why Isn't it a good plan to
budget one's time?
Every scheme of "the sort has to
be fitted to individual requirements,
of course; but for a general rule, the
old division stands as well as any
other—eight hours for labor, eight
hours for outside interests, eight
hours for sleep. Only stick to it. !
Don't let yourself or anybody else j
encroach upon those periods. Have I
a stated time for the telephone pests ;
and the people who "won't keep you a '
minute." Cut out the temptation to
drop things while you run out to do
a little shopping or to see how your
sick friend is getting along.
Women are the greatest squan
derers of time. The old adage has
it that a woman's work—meaning the
care of a household—ls never done.
That is because she wastes herself,
her time by her lack of method. I
hazard the assertion that today; with
proper intelligence and system, any
house can be faultlessly run on eight
hours of actual work.
_ Keep to a fixed division of time.
Know what is the next thing you are
going to do. prepare for it. and do it.
Don't let yourself be drawn off by
side issues. Work while you work
and play while you play. Watch the
garbage pail constantly for wasted
moments. 1
If that regimen were generally fol
lowed, the world would advance by
leaps and bounds, and all the pet
stories and inventions and composi
tions and schemes and deqls that are
always "going to be done" would be
