16-year-old Edward Persley, of Memphis, is having some romance problems.
"Priscilla and I had an argument—just a little spat. I wanted to apologize, so I though of calling her. But then, I decided that sending a letter would be better. So, I wrote it and put it in the mailbox on Monday before going to school. A couple days later, I got my letter back!"
"Priscilla" is Priscilla Mae Walker, also 16, his "steady." He shows the letter; written on the envelope is "Return to sender. Address not known. No such number. No such phone."
"What does her phone number have to do with her address?"
"I'll re-mail the letter in a new envelope. If she sends it back again, I guess we're through!"
Miss Walker's father Thomas has released this statement: "My daughter is very upset with the argument she had with Mr. Persley, and needs a few days to think things over."
