YOUNG TEENS TALK IT OVER

With a combination of panel-discussion and question-and- answer techniques Mary Beery, author of Manners Made Easy discusses here the universal problems facing junior high students in adapting to home, school and friends. From her experience with youthful problems as editor of a newspaper column for teenagers, the author has selected many questions frequently asked about boy-girl relationships, dates, making friends, etiquette and grooming. The members of Club 700 -young teens who meet regularly to discuss such problems, have contributed comments. Some of the problems included seem a little inane to an adult, and many of the solutions offered to the problems are too general to be much help, but much of the material is pertinent. There is reassurance for those in their early teens simply in realizing that others of their age are concerned about adjusting to their contemporaries and their elders.
