Goo-Goo Eyes

From the November 22, 1901 Skidmore Standard, page 4:

We have never been able to learn why so many boys and girls congregate at the depot each evening to await the arrival of the evening train, unless it is because they want to be seen and heard — the former to be heard and the latter to be seen.

How much more profitable would it be to them, if they were at home reading some good book.  It is alright to go to the depot to meet a friend but to go there to have a good time and make goo-goo eyes at the occupants of the cars is all wrong.
