Barbara falls in love with Clark and decides to go to State U.
Reprints
  • Probably reprinted from Hi-School Romance (Harvey, 1949 series) 49 (March 1956). However, #49 is not currently available to verify this. The page discrepancy can be explained because this story actually begins on the "Contents" page but the story-page numbering begins on the next page (which has the title) with "1."

Indexer Notes

The title and the masthead illustration are the same as in First Love Illustrated 14 (September 1951), but the "letters from readers" are different and this later version omits several smaller pieces of (Bob Powell) art, as well as the publisher's address and solicitation of additional reader comments on the topic.
