Would permit her to take my parents won t allow me to anything the Church i i go with my girl friends to the offer us have to movies downtown. They have heard and read in the papers so much about girls being annoyed by strange men that they Are afraid if i went out by myself or with my girl friends i might be next. They also say that if i were to go to own alone i might get lost be Here. Then Are More than the one suggestion for which she asks and i Hope she will think them Over and try them out then write me again and let me know what Progress she has been Able to make. In the meantime Springdale club meets in new club building mrs. Carl Stephens and mrs. Robert Patterson were hostesses for the first meeting of the Spring Dale Community club in the new Community club House recently. Mrs. Charlie Hamblen opened the meeting with prayer.

Arthur Martin. Thursday ladies Day Golf and Bridge. Luncheon lobster picnic. Cause i have never been downtown a alone. In fact. I never go anywhere without the whole family going too. And almost the Only place we Ever go is to a drive in theater. There Are five of us in the family and if any of us Don t want to go to the drive in we Are forced to go. Once my parents minds Are made up. We have to go. How is she going to meet Nice boys How am i Ever going to mee1. Any Nice boys the Way my life is arranged my girl friends have told me you have helped them and other girls with their problems and that you Are bound to have Al least one suggestion about what i can do or say to get my parents to Iet me go to town alone and to movies with my girl although i can understand very Well How this girl feels i can also understand her parents worries. After All she is Only 14 years old. Which is pretty Young to go about very much on her own. Still i do think she should have a Little More Freedom than she apparently does and that she should be Able to enjoy the Normal activities of girls and boys her own age. I Don t think she ought to ask to go to the movies at night but i should think she might be allowed to go with a group of friends on a saturday afternoon for instance. Is she too Busy at the store to get away at such a time i would think she is a bit Jiyoung too to be tied Down to working in a store so much that she had no time for fun and i Hope this is not the Case. Don t some of her girl friends belong to some Nice club she might enjoy and if so could t she get them to ask her parents if she might enjoy it if the activities of the club were always carried on at a proper place and in a proper manner her parents might be will i la think -----.t.1111., 1 11 Lull Ali about her problem and perhaps some this else to Urjil suggest.
