Mrs. Brown runs a Junior Years Seminar in Westport, Connecticut and all of this which sounds like an out-of-town newspaper column probably has been said better in umpteen other books. It is addressed to You, now that you are a Junior, and have Awkward Age parents. But just pretend you're a guest in that house at least for a weekend. And evaluate some of those common complaints (unreliability, sulkiness, impatience). And how are you treating your girl friend? And what about boys (The Athlete, The Great Lover, Mr. Party-Party)? Just remember--you will ""invariably lose (their) respect once you have yielded."" And also remember that ""Happiness is the chief duty of women and happy girls are the ones who are most attractive to boys."" Glumly brooding over this preposterous dictum we became--well--impatient.
