I C E 8 THE OBSERVER FRIDAY, JANUARY 6, 1961 ::' [i :%>::! ,:ii; Doris Revere Peters Dear Doris. What do you think of blind dates? Dick Blind dates that are arranged by friends at school or church or by someone whose judgment you and your family can reiy on are okay. General- ly, in this case you have heard of the girl pre- viously. Y o u may have seen her at Mass or know some of her friends. But blind dates that bar- Doris R. Petersder on b e i n g "pick ups" are out. Stay clear of them and you will stay out of trouble. Dear Doris: I'm 17 and a high school sen- ior. My plan for the future is to join The Women's Army Corps. But every time. I men- tion it my mother fusses. She says the service is not for nice girls and that I will eventually lose my reputation. Is she right? Rose Your mother wants you to make a wise choice or career-- one for which you're suited and which will benefit you. It's na- tural for her to become unduly concerned when you don't take her into your confidence. HAVE YOU discussed the pros and cons of the service with your parents or have you just announced your decision? Does your mother know of the oppor- tunities the service offers in ed- ucation, travel and experience? Give her some literature on the WAC. Take her with you on a ~sit to the recruiting office. ,TtIE WAC is full of fine young women devoted' to the service of their country. However, it at- tracts girls with r~any differ ant backgrounds, standards and values. While association with them is educational the freedom this association offers girls just out of high school needs to be square!y with maturity and IN THE WAC you will be completely on your own, spirit- ually and morally, without the guidance of home, church or school. Your parents know if ~::~ : '~!i,; ~!'!F~'~ S> ! ~': ,w ),i,li~ L.H i' : . I~' !~' - ' 'ili!l;~ ~ihiiili;;~il111il!i~lil:~'lii~l!ii~ii~:'ii~: i nswers you are mature enough to meet the challenge of this freedom. Discuss it with them. You will need their written consent if ~ou join before you're 21. AS FOR YOUR reptuation, ~ose, this depends on you, not The WAC or any other job. A Catholic girl who lives her Faith should be an influence for good to the many who come in contact with her, whether in The WAC or in the bank on VIain Street. Dear Doris: I have heard it is wrong for Catholic girls to enter the "Miss Universe" beauty contest. Could you please tell me if it's wrong for Catholic girls to enter local beauty contests to select a queen for The Fair? I don't think bath ing suits will be worn in this contest. Nan. Rules regarding a Catholic girl's participation in "beauty contests vary from: diocese to diocese. Your first considera- tion is -- has the Bishop made any regulation? If so you must abide by it. If you don't know ask your pastor. MANY CONTESTS of this type are not based on charjc- tar, or beauty o'r talent. "l~e emphasis is merely on the phy- sical. This should be your sec- ond consideration. If the empha- sis is on "bathing beauty" it could be an occasion of sin for others. In this case you may not participate. IT'S WELL to remember, Nan, that bathing suits aren't the on- ly offenders against modesty and good taste. Some formals, tight sweaters and short sleeves can be immodest, too. A careful selection and good taste in clothes is imperative at all times; particularly during a beauty contest. Dear Doris: I have found out through my association with boys and girls that drinking alcoholic bever- ages is a big thing nowadays. How do girls get into the habit of drinking at this young age? Jack Girls develop habits, good and bad, the same way boys do-- usually through the company they keep. Those who drink while still in high school think it's smart and think it makes them appear older. They are tel :lowing a set of completely false standards. i BUT LET ME s2y, Jack, that most girls don't get this habit at an early age. The latest stud- ies and reports show that the :aumber of high school student! who drink alcoholic beverages is very low. If the few whom ou have met ah-eady drink perhaps, your example may show them it isn't necessary. IT IS TRUE that you can't be too careful in your choice of companions. If others pick up habits from their friends, you might too. Try to be selective-- find friends, boys and girls, who meet your standards. There are plenty of them.

Classroom Need CLEVELAND -- A growin need for' more classrooms in Catholic men's colleges was pointed up in the annual report of Father Hflgh E. Dunn, S.J president of John Carroll Uni- versity here. Father Dunn pointed out that of the 1,271 freshmen who ap- plied for admission, only 731 were accepted. The Jesuit insti- tution's total enrollment is 4,028. Patronize Our Advertisers ST. VINCENT'S JOTTINGS FREEPORT--On New Year's Eve our entire family assembled in the chapel as we had done every Saturday evcnmg of the year. There was a special reason for this gathering. It was the closing of 1960. It is our custom to spend a Holy Hour on thiSselves and others particularly occasion in the real Presence for all those who in His Name of our Eucharistic Sa,~ior. We have done us good. It waz a offered prayers of ~Joration, truly inspirational Holy Hour thanksgiving for favors receiv- with these prayers, hymns, fine ed, sorrow for sins. petition for sermon, examination of con- favors and blessings for our- Ceylon Schools Nationalized in Spite of Church MADRAS. India --(NC)-- The prime minister of Ceylon said during a visit here that her gov- ernment is determined to go ahead with nationalization of Ceylon's schools despite Catho- lic opposition and demonstra- tions. Mrs. Sirimavo Bandaranaike, the prime minister told news- men, "The Roman Catholics are opposing takeover of schools, but we are determined to take over all schools assisted by.the government." Mrs. Bandara- naike came here on a pilgrim- age to Buddhist shrines. Law In Effect A Ceylonese law that went into effect December 1 provides for government takeover of virtually all the 2,500 privately operated schools in that island nation off the east coast of India. Of 750 Catholic schools, only 42 were able to stay outside of the gov- ernment system by renouncing their former government sub- sidy and becoming tuition-charg- ing institutions. Catholic stu- dents have been boycotting the schools being taken over by the government. Catholic parents have erected barbed wire bar- riers and holed up in about 100 schools to prevent government seizure. Police used guns, tear gas and clubs to break up a series of Catholic demonstrations. At least one person was killed when po- lice opened fire on about 1,000 Catholics gathered outside a Colombo police station to de- mand release of two being held for questioning. When Mrs. Bandaranaike was asked if other schools were complying with the school na- tionalization program, she re- plied, "Most of them." Unfortunate Incident Earlier, on her arrival at Bangalore, she had described as "unfortunate" the firing by police on the Catholic demon- strators in Ceylon. In answer to a q~estion on the parallel be- tween school demonstrations in Kerala and Ceylon, she said that the situation in Kerala was also "political." Kerala's controver- sial education act was the turn- ing point which led to dismissal of the communist government. The education act, which foster- ed Red teaching, triggered pro- tests and riots in which a num- ber of anticommunists killed. science, shaping of resolutions for the new year, Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament and singing of "Holy God." It was a happy announcement of the New Year's Family Bin- go. Happier still were the chil- dren and grown-ups who at- tended the party. With plenty of time, prizes and refreshments, this proved to be another joyful get-together. Goodbyes were exchanged with our seminarian friends. Good wishes for their success and perseverance in the months ahead till June brings their glad return to us. Among our holiday visitors we welcomed several of our form- er children: John Wilson, a sta- dent at college; John Lampe, accompanied by his wife and lovely little girl; Eoy Sharp and his family; Joyce (Covell) Stu- ~ker; Tom Labinski with his wife, and Rial Bailard. A pleasant surprise of the week past was the showing of the delightful movie, "Gulli- ver's Travels." His adventures. all in color, were a real treat fpr the holidays. A group of our Sisters also enjoyed their ex- cursion to Chicago to attend the movie "Ben Hur." All day Saturday the children who had been away for the Christmas vacation trickled back to St. Vincent's, and by eve- ning our family was once more complete. On Tuesday all set- tled down to their books, most of them happy to be back in school again. The Fifth and Sixth Graders were t rilled to receive a cheery letter from the Mission Stamp Department of St. Joseph Sem- inary, Teutopolis, Ill thanking them for stamps sent and urg- ing them to continue saving and sending them. They wish to ask their readers of this sec- tion to help them in this noble work.
