Treat him gently, don't hurt his feelings and you may find out that he loves you yet! S0-80 If you really can't see that this fella loves you, you must be blind!

never gone in for umbrellas myself. I'd rather get wet than be seen carting one around. In fact. If you were to ask me to name the six most boring things in the world umbrellas would come pretty high on the list. But OD(' of mv girls. the fascinating Maggie. hardly ever goes out without an umbrella. She owns eight of them, and she reckons no female should be without at least three. When it's not raining she uses her umbrella to store things like lipsticks and tissues and loose change. Then she doesn't It doesn't Seem to have occurred to .her that if she carried a bag she wouldn't have to bother with an umbrella. . But then. I s'pose, if it started to rain she wouldn't have an umbrella to put up. Not that she can put her umbrella up anyway. as all the loose change and stuff would fan out. The more I think about it the more I'm convinced that that girl has loose marbles in her head: Anyway. when it does look like rain and she's got her lipsticks and change in her bag her umbrella really comes in useful. In a crowded street she uses it as a sort of battering ram to clear a path for herself. If she's missed a bus she stands miserably at the bus stop pretending she can't get the umbrella open and within three minutes some guy feeling sorry for her has pulled up in his car and offered her a \j lt home. She says it never fails. . She also uses the umbrella to get to know boys.

The Jamie patent umbrella. which win be on sale just as soon as I've ironed out a few design difficulties. is the answer. It will be made from llghtweight steel and will be incredibly strong, able to withstand falling bricks or even pianos which may fall from tall buildings as you pass. My umbrella will have flashing lights on top for use when cro sing roads. I may even incorporate a fog horn. If you should be unlucky enough to fall out of a window. the Jamie umbrella. win act as a parachute. and if you should find you rself falIing into a river or lake all you have to do is turn your umbrella upside-down and use it as a boa!.

VALLl: I was just sitting there, strangling Squeezy (my teddy bear sponge) with my flannel, when suddenly I thought: Wouldn't it be a good idea if everyone in the office wore badges and then maybe I could remember their names .. , JILLY: After sitting in my bath for for three hours and thinking very hard, I have made an amazing discovery: You shouldn't sit in your bath for three hours because the water gets very cold and your knees start turning purple and you get covered in nasty little goosebumps all over .. , ANDREA: It was whilst I was having a scrub in tbe tub one day that I came across t~s brilliant new way of gettmg some colour in your cheeks without using a blusher! You just grit your teeth, turn ~he hot tap on full blast and be there until you are forced to jump upright and yell in a , loud voice, 'II you now look m , the mirror you win notice that your cheeks are red - and so is the rest of you . . . JAMIE: I'm sorry but I'm not playing this game. I never have time to have great thoughts what with bunging the shillings in the meter and making drowning noises so that my landlady will stop banging on the door. I'm . getting very good at drowning large hairy spiders though ' .. SALLY: I once decided, in the bath, that I would never have another problem again. I would never worry ahout anything or get in a tizzy or throw a tantrum, And then my big toe got stuck up the tap ... BRIGID; Sitting in the bath one day, having a Great Thought, I suddenly leapt to my feet - pinkly - and yelled "Eureka". Whereupon my flat-mate, who was standing outside the door, said, "Oh no I don't, paIJy, I had a bath yesterday" . . .

Marty Kristian was always a lave pin-up of ours when he was with the New Seekers along with Paul Layton .. But then the New Seekers split up, and Marty and Paul decided to stick together and look around for someone else to make up a triO., And that's where Danny Finn came in. Before joining the other two, Danny had been with a group called Wishful Thinking - but he was keen to join up with the others to form Marty, Pauland Danny. And we reckon it's a hit combination. The boys wrote "Coming Alive Again" together _ and now it's to be released as their first single. And they're planning a back-up tour as weU as several telly appearances, so you'll probably get a chance to see them, as well as hear their new sound. But let's take a closer look at the three lovely fell . as . ..

That's the title oj Marty, Paul and Danny's first sinqie. And it's pretty appropriate when you know their story ...
Marty (centre in our pieey) was born in Germany, but .emigrated to Australia when he was still young. There he went to Melbourne University to study architecture, but changed his mind midway and decided to become a professional singer inst.ead. Paul Layton (right in our picey! is from. .

Be a water baby! Or if your swimming's not up to Olympic standard, ride in a boat - a dinghy, canoe or the speedy kind .... great! .~ Go for a picnic .. , what a fa ..nta.stic way to have a nosh-up! If you want to keep your sandwiches low in calories, why not go for crispbread? Get down to your ideal . weight .... try on your . briefest bikini to give you an incentive. And with all those tasty salads it shouldn't be too difficult 1 Find out about all the local fairs, f.etes. pop ' festivals and go to every one.

The next time somebody asks me if I can keep a secret, I'll make. sure I ask them what it is before I promise anything. 'Cos last time I promised without asking, I landed myself in a real mess! It all started one evening on the way home from school when Je.nny, one of my class-mates, decided to confide in me. "You know all those plants . that were pulled up in the school grounds last night," she said with a funny sort of smile. "Well, I can tell you who did it." Of course, I knew what she was talking about. Only that morning we'd all been kept late after assembly while the headmistress ranted and raved about how they were going to find the culprit and punish her severely, She was convinced it was one of us kids. I looked at Jenny, surprised. "How come you know?" I asked. She gave another of her funny smiles. "I'll tell you who it was if you promise to keep it to yourself. " "Okay, I promise," I said without thinking. "Who was it the.n?" "It was me! I did it for a dare. , Now, remember you promised to keep quiet .. .!" "Don't· worry." I assured her "I won't tell a ;ou1." ' So, there I was, bound to

David E.ssex reckons a bit of star worship is probably alright ... as long as it doesn't go too far. "It's nice to know

me in! He just didn't understand that the feeling I felt for David was different to what I felt for him. ' Billy of Preston admitted that he couldn't work out how a girl can feel so keen about a pop star when she hasn't even met him. "I couldn't stand to go out with a girl while she's got a

crush on some pop star. And if she turned up wearing scarves and badges I d be furious! I'd see it as a personal insult! "I mean who wants to be treated like second bestlike a girl's only going out with you because she can't go out with the Bay City Rollers or whoever anyway? It makes you feel like she's just making do - and she'd drop you like a hot potato if one of those Langmuir fellas came along!"

Sue of Hull tried to explain to her boyfriend how she felt about Eric of the , Rollers ... but all in vain. "He just wouldn't - or couldn't - understand how I felt about Eric. But the joke is he's pretty keen on Lynsey de Paul and he seems to understand that okay ... l" But some girls feel that if they are that crazy about a star they can't think about going out with a fella. Take Jill from Northampton (left), f'rinstance ... She's so crazy about Donny that she feels she couldn't fit another fella into her life. "I don't think it would be fair on the bloke either. I know I'd be thinking of Donny all the way thru' the date!" And I couldn't blame any fella for feeling pretty fed up about that! "But the real truth is that I just don't need any other fella but Donny. He may be hundreds of miles away most of the time, but I still feel he's mine - and that's enough for me!" Reader Sarah reckons that altho' she's mad about the. Rollers and even wears their outfits if another fella asked her out she'd still want to go. "It's different going out with a boy and being a Rollers fan. The feelings you have aren't the same, are they? "You have to deal with a Woody, finds that when the fans' feelings get out of control it can be a pretty frightening experience. "Sometimes a t some of our concerts when the girts start to go really wild, I can't help worrying a bit. I really hate to think of any of them getting hurt. That scares me." Pilot's Dave Paton had to admit that he didn t really blame the felIas for getting jealous at the way some girls feel about their fave pop stars. "I suppose if I was in their shoes I might feel pretty fed

" One couple we spoke to tho' have a very good (or perhaps we should say lucky?) arrangement ... "We both like the Glitter Band and so we both go to the concerts and collect pictures of 'em", Julie from Paisley up myself," he admitted. "I can be a pretty jealous kinda guy - I like to feel a girl's one hundred per cent with me! If she went raving on about some other fella, I reckon it would make be pretty mad!" Gary Glitter, on the other hand, reckons the fellas really have no need to worry. "I'm sure that what the fans feel for us is something quite different from what they feel for their boyfriends. After all, our music is our lives. We like to think that counts for something too!"

told us. "But if Terry stopped liking the band and objected to my feelings about them I'd have to stop going out with him! " So it looks like some fell as do mind and others don't. But one thing's for sure most of you continue to leel the way you do about that extra special superstar whatever the fellas think!

POP P41UPfR?

Our Gary feels as poor as a church mouse compared with all his other pop mates. Not that he's hard up by our standards, it's just that pals like Rod Stewart and Elton John are 80 much richer that he feels the odd man out. Still, one consolation is that all those pop tycoons are very generous and usually end up picking up Gar)r's bill at the end of a n.ight of fest'ivity.

TWO BOYFRIENDS Dear Sally, I have a very difficult problem that has been bugging me for a long. time. It's about two boys, both named Gary. One night I went out with a friend of mine and met a boy called Gary H. I liked him so much and was so pleased when he asked me out. We w.ent together for a month, then became engaged. Right after this, another boy whom I liked for a long time - Gary C. - came up to me and said, "So, I've lost my chance now." That choked me up a lot, as I'd really fancied him. Then Gary H. and I broke up, and Gary C. asked me out. I just went out with Gary C. for one week when Gary H. asked me back out, so I said goodbye to Gary C. Then, after 3 days, Gary H. said he didn't want to go out with me any more. I tried my hardest to get Gary C. back, but he just wouldn't take a hint. So, please, Sally, tell me what I should do. I'm so worried because my friends last such a long time with their boyfriends and my relationships only last a few months. Please, Sally, try your hardest to solve my problem for me. Evelyn, Middlesex

to be regarded as playthings. You can't blame them, can you? In the future, try to be cleaT a.s to what exactly it is tha.t you want before you go after it. Then other people (including boys!) witt be more sure of you. As to your present circumstances, it's best f01" you to stop pursuing or hinting to either of the Garys. Just let each of . them. make up theiT own minds ~fthey wish to a.PPl'oach you again..

have one for about four days, then it stops for a day, then continues for four more days, etc. I can't tell my dad as I haven't even told him I've started yet. The only other person I can tell besides you is a teacher at school who is very nice and said that if I had a problem I should go to her. Do you think I should tell her, as it's making me badtempered and I'm in pain nearly all the time? Please don't tell me to go to the doctor's as my dad would want to come with me. Pink Fan

Deal' P.P., Yes, I think you should go to this teacher immediately, and not put this off another day. As to your not wanting to tell 1I0ur dad, I can understand this, but I'm sure your dad would understand, too, as this is nothing to feel ashamed of, but only the natuml C01.l.rse f life. o EventuaUy, he'll have to know, as it wilt be necessary for you to see a doctor. Perhaps this nice teacher wiLl.offer to tel,l him herse{f. The important thing is for you to take care of this as soon as possible.

heila Johnson's friends, the Dales, have moved into a new house in the country, near an ancient, ruined castle, Now Sheila suspects that her friend, Stella, and her brother, 51mon are in danger from some kind of evi I power 1I1at lives in the shadows of the castle tower .. , an evil power capable of creating a "figure" that looks like Simon - and a power that can make people do things against their will. , .

The "thing" that looks I.ikeSimon strikes again!
THERE'S ONL Y ONE THING THA T WOULD MAKE STELLA GO INTO THE TOWER AT NIGHT - JEALOUSY OVER PETE AND I! AND THE TOWER HAS MADE HER JEALOUS!

Sheila told Mrs Dale how a figure ~~~"': who looked like her son, Simon, had tried to lure her into danger

What she wants me to say is something like, "Your freckles are like the sun breaking over the hilltops" or, "With legs those you should be a model". But I won't say it because it's just not true. And anyway she'd think I liked her. [realise, af course, that a lot of people are afraid of my honesty. "Why can't you tell just a few little white lies," my mum would plead after I'd just told her best friend, Mrs Wrinkle, that her trifle was suitable only for people with reinforced teeth. And lips. And that her elderberry wine tasted like something had died in it. It's tough being an honest person in a world full of fibbers and 1'm beginning to think I should try it after all _._ 'being nice' I mean. Then maybe people will stop going on at me about my being so cruel. All right, Kim. With legs like yours you should have been a model. A nd your at her yards of freckles are like the sun legs, ' I know what breaking over the hilltops. And I'm fed-up with this it feels like to work in a spaghetti factory ... "

One of my greatest friends always used to tell me, "You know. Bridge, you will never get on in this world until you learn to be nice to people, even people you don't really like By the way, I hate you " She was a nice girl and it's a pity about the brain damage. She was right of course. You have to be nice to people. Greet the world with a smile instead of snarl. Learn how to say, lovely to see you" when you mean is "Why didn't I just stay in bed today?' 'It doesn't come easily to this being nice business. That's probably a surprise to you. Because to you, dear Reader, I must seem kind, and altogether a charperson. That's because dumb and easily taken

HOWZAT! Have you ever been to watch someone playing cricket? Boring, isn't it? Actually I think it's just an excuse to sunbathe. Boys don't like to admit that they do things like that so they nave to invent something like cricket - so that they can laze around in the sun. Mind you, a bit difficult getting the old Mediterranean tan through layers of white wool. Still, when I got invited by an old school chum's brother to go along and watch a game, I decided I had nothing to lose, After all, it would be practice for the big day when someone's bound to come along and invite me to grace the VIP's pavilion at Lord'S'. SoJ donned my immaculate whites and off I went. Found a nice comfy deekchair on the edge of the pitch and settled back to watch the action. Nothing happened. I got so bored by the whole thing that in the end I was yelling "Howzat!" every five minutes just for the fun of it. I didn't actually know what was going on in the first place. And after I'd sat there for a . few minutes watching these chaps strolling up and down, and sometimes breaking into a sort of stumble that they call running. and clapping and yelling things - I though~: I still don't know what's going on. "What's it all about then?" I said to this fella strolling off the field. "Actually." he said, "1 don't teally know. I only come for the tea. Darn good fairy cake; Mrs Brown makes,'
