SINCERELY, ED AN WRIGHT Girl Fears 'Hoods' Will Make Trouble Ever use broiM nr skillet-cooked in butter, with ba- con (crisply tomatoes, lettuce and mayonnaise for a club sandwich? 'Use (wo or three layers of bread (toasted) for each sandwich. DEAR EDAN WRIGHT: The school I am attending this year has a reputation for a terrific number of hoods among its stu- dents. There is a girl who goes there that doesn't like me. I did nothing to offend her but she is convinced that she's got a bone to pick with me. So I im afraid that she will give me a rough time. Please tell me what to do. I can't change schools because my parents are having finan- cial difficulties. CHASED STAY OUT of the girl's way as much as possible and don't talk about her. Watch your step in making friends -so "that you won't get into a bad group. 'Be friendly with everyone but hold off on a close association until you arc sure that a girl or boy is the riL'h: kind of company. DEAR MISS WRIGHT: For over a yoar was stuck on a boy wouid hardly give me the time of day. I saw this boy ofton because he no; only won't lo my school but lived in my neifihixjrhood. You can'f imagine1 how much ii hurt to care for him and have him act like I him and started liking other boy.s. And do you know what happened? My old flame came over the other day and told me he liked me. This is what I had wanted to hear for so long but I'm not happy about it.. He- knew that I had become inter- ested in another boy and he came over as if he were Kini; Tut saying: "Here J am. For- get the Other boy. You wanted me once and now I'm avail- able." 'What should I do about H? MIXED UP THE COCKY ATTITUDE could Just be your imagination. Overlook it and ask yourself if you still care. Next, try to un- derstand that a boy can't like you just because you have a yen for him. And he didn't hurt hurt yourself by hang- ing on lo your crush and not accepting the fact that it wasn't mutual. __Very often a boy or .gir! will turn to someone who has been worshiping unnoticed and sud- denly- see the person in a new light. There's nothing wrong in that. Visions of people change as you grow up. Now, I don't suggest that you give up the new boy for your old flame. Date them both and others, too. That will re- solve any suspicison and give you a chance to find out wheth- er your vision has changed.

The rest of the time she hardly ever washes her hair and leaves it hanging straight On top of that sr doesn't clean her naiis and she goes around with dirty clothes. I'm embarrassed to have my friends see my mother and I can't bear to walk down the street with her. ASHAMED OF MY MOTHER WHEN MOM fixes up for her friends, praise her on her looks. Then teli her it's a pity she doesn't show herself off like that all the time. Keep this up and see if it doesn't produce a change. Send your question to Edan WRIGHT in care of this news- paper.
