It's not correct, riohow, to say, "1 haven't g&t rio", when you mean, "1 haven't any." I've had some trouble with, the double negatives in the past, but that's a mere breeze' cbmpafed - to the horrors I've faced with the plain, old, single negative — in shor't, the fine art of saying a plain, firm, "No!" - ' • * * * ,, ." • •THE.INABILITY TO SAY, "NO", at the right time can make life very complicated. Some of the troubles this has meant for ffie in- the past includes, (1) acting as the "foot in the door" In my youth by intrpucing a magazine crew working their way through local citizens; (2) signing up for a set of encyclopedias ($8 per month for the rest of my life); (3) promising to sell insurance for a fly-by-night company (I didn't turn up and they never Came after me); and (4) giving talks on subjects 1 knew absolutely nothing abcrlit such as (a) The United Nations and (b) The Near East. I accomplished the last, in ten appearances, strictly." by reviewing books. (I have never been east of NeW York City and/that Was only Once in my life). ' '. $ *.*..*'•* * ON THE OTHER HAND, THE INABILITY to say, "No", when my first impulse was to do so, has brought me some good things which I later learned to love very much. These include, one husband, three children, three dogs, one cat, and a trip to New Orleans, none of which I first thought I r could afford. *.-*•'* WITH THE COMING OF SEPTEMBER, homemakers are getting a lot of. practice, or temptation to practice, the fine art of saying, "No". The clubs are reconvening; the church: circles fiave renewed activity; the choirs are tuning up; the Home Rooms ate'looking for Mothers; the,Scouts, are scanning- their lists for leaders^ the-political parties are crying for volunteer workers; the grocery stores are full* of ,fine crates of fruit, begging to be canned; the' coffers Of the charity institutions are empty; and, the fcidsv are demanding that Mama make them a new dess, or at least mend the old ones. Plus that, the -house has that tired look that. Can be remedied only by a good, old-fashioned fall cleaning. u * * . • * . • .' • . • THE TROUBLE IS, MOST OF these things we gals are asked" to do are blamed interesting and very worthwhile. That's what makes it so hard to say, "No". The trick, it seems to me> is to be able to sift things out and sort of take, a lesson from the colleges where you pick the one thing you are most interested'in, and major in it, leaving the rest to minors. However, I have never quite' been able to accomplish this. I'm too enthusiastic about too many •things and I'm too susceptible to flattery. • , ' FLATTERY IS THE STRONGEST obstacle to my practicing the fine art of saying, "No 1 '. Flattery will get you everywhere with Grace; If somebody tells me I'm just the one to make costumes for the school play, though I've never sewed a' wearable article in my life, I'm apt to get out the tarlatan and thimble. If I'm told that I'm just "the one to write a small speech for a banquet because I do it so well, I'm right there with the whole program, including the lighting cues. If some mealy Aouthed character* says I'm the only one who.could possibly cover First Ward in a charity drive, I'm out pushing doorbells. About the only things I have been successfully able to squeeze out of is being treasurer of any organization. Somebody must have taken a look at a ledger I kept or a trial balance. ' > • *,'*.*' • " IN RECENT YEARS, DtTE TO economic necessity, I've had a big incentive to be able to say, "No". This has been based primarily oh whether or riot, thei job paid money. You,"too,can say, "No" to many, requests if you either take on a full-time job down town or else contract for so many part-time jobs nobody has the nerve to ask you to take on more. But, I miss the club activities I've given up, the charity work, and, most of all coffee with my neighbors. When things settle down a bit, I expect to be back at the same old round. . • >• « * * ' ANOTHER THING THAT is practically certain to enable' a woman to say, "No", gracefully is to have an addition to her family. The most energetic of recruit directors will respect a maternity dress. For a while, when the sack dresses were in fashion, you couldn't tell who was kidding or who was being fashionable, but sheathes have brought the whole thing back to more predictability. The trouble with the stork excuse is.that after four or five seasons of begging-off, you either get bored with staying home or else you get an unmanagebly large family. , * * •* MEN SEEM TO HAVE MASTERED the art of saying, "No", much more efficiently than women have. If a husband-doesn't want to do an extra-curricular activity, he simply says, his business keeps him too busy or that its against the company policy. Or he says, "My wife will do it for you." Secretaries, too, often get some extra jobs by this method. * * * SOME BUSINESS MEN GET their training in saying, "No", right on' the job. There is one beloved Algona banker, who is sincere in his hking for people of all kinds. But necessity, and the stockholders, have made him very adept in the fine art of saying, "No" The story is going around that before his bank was remodeled, the banker was so nice to people that they often 'got as far as the front door before they realized he had said,-no, to a loan. Now, with music playing all day long, people usually get one block down the street before they realize they've been turned down! * "« « OF COURSE, TO ALWAYS TO be 'able to say, "No" would result in an insipid, negative life, but it might be a relief if it could be practiced occasionally. On the other hand, to be always on the disagreeing side would be as repulsive as always being a yes person Worse than that is going along verbally with a project with a yes and then continually carping. I've often thought that carping is one of the most unlovely traits a woman can have. I abhore it in others, but what bothers me even more is to realize that I, myself have been doing too much of it recently. After I do a bit of so,ul-searchinfi it may be a column subject of the future IT'S MUCH TOO HOT TO cook right now, but there a time when the family gets hungry and wants a decent it its cold.
