If it Goes down, he may be out in the street. Since the greafc battle between CBS and NBC started, the public has 'heard a lot about Hooper ratings. Since the public itself is what those figures represent, it might like to Snow what they mean.. There arc 37,623,000 homes in the United States which have radios. A "point" in the Hooper ratings means one per cent of those homes, or 376,230 homes. It is estimated' that an average of two and two-tenths persons listen to the radio in each home, so that means that each "point" represents about 827,700 listeners. That's the number of listeners a radio program -gains, or loses when the Hooper rating goes up or down a point. Tht biggest switch of .listeners in history took place on Jack Benny's first-CBS broadcast. According to the." "Hooper ratings, CBS gained 2S.142.000 new listeners for the period between 6:30 ..nd 9 p. m. (EST) that evening. Incidentally, CBS is still confident that-it will soon get the Phil Harris- AUce.'Paye Show. It's reported that there have been a lot of 'long-distance phone calls between Harris and-CBS headquarters in New York during 1 the last week or so. NBC, on' the other hand,' is reported cooking up a few surprises of-its own. Now that the" smoke has cleared away and the dust has set- tledmetwork officials are said to be concentrating on long range plans to retrieve the .lost Sunday night prestige. ' ' ' . Most of the planning is aimed'at aeit'FaU, but some of it may develop earlier. MBS Commentator John Bosman wrote a poem the other day, descrlb- ing'that post-holiday feeling. Here it is:- • The bright red tie is out of ~ sight, .' And so's the lighter that 7.Twouldn't light. The tree's long burned and turned to ash; The last of the turkey's gone to •hash. And as Christmas departs for another year And we drink the drugs of our cup of cheer, Comes now the time when the bills axe due And the notices read: "This means you."

DEAR MARY HAWORTH: I have two flne sons and five lovely grandchildren, but my elder son's wife Elsa has become quite nervous .and tried to persuade John" that med- only more recently has found courage to express it.

She used X) be sweet and receptive to me, now she is harshly recentful, and last month she even told me to mind my o\vn business when I merely offered to entertain her mother, who is expected for a visit soon. Of. course.I forgave this "slap," but .her attitude toward me is consistently bitter and I don't know why I'm the object of her spleen, I've always been as kind as humanly possible to both daughters-in-law. demurrers that you can forcibly override or plausibly discredit.

And tills of course would madden a. daughter'-ir.-la-w struggling to defend some comer of privacy from your irrepressible meddling. For instance, it's not literally true that" you forgave Elsa's slap. Had you forgiven, you wouldn't be writing a slyly recriminatory document with'intent to-put her in wrong. Rather, your expedient reaction was to ignore 'her thrust, if by so doing you wene -able to perpetuate .your preferred position of being always in her-hair, figuratively speaking. and helpful where they will let me.

Perhaps more religion in her life would help. I'm confident sh« wouldn't consider psychiatric aid. Please answer 'soon, as I still want to entertain her mother.

Crane: Editor's Note: Men nnd women -will try to dress properly and artistically, but often fall to .clothe tllclr thoughts In charming apparel.' A girl who wouldn't think ot wearing «.n old Mother Hubbard to a formal parly. may 1 parade her thoughts In equally' unattractive Barb and apparently wonder why she loses her boy Irlcnds. CASE S-2G3: Harry F.. agccl 22, Is copy writer in an advertising agency. ,"Dr. Crane, I'm. anxious to have you look at some of our new. layouts," he informed me, and of course I was very glad to see them, e^pec- ially. since I have been teaching courses in advertising and selling; for many years. You will observe,' however, that Harry Illustrates a common .misuse of the word "anxiq^s." He reajly meant to say that he was "eager" or "desirous" of having me pass Judgment on his ads. While I do 'not. wish to appear oetty or picayune about this matter a good vocabulary, I do. wish to point out the fact that words possess distinctive personalities. Sometimes words arc so much n!ikc that they arc 1 verbal "twins", in which case we call them synonyms. But even synonyms have- shades of meaning' which arc not exactly illke. "Sharp" and "keen" are synonyms, whereas "sharp" and 'dull" are antonyms. Mow To Clothe YOTJF Thoughts will often spend large sums ofvmoney trying to clothe their bodies' atuactively, yet fall to dress .up their thoughts in proper words or phrases suitable to the time and ace.' Many men and women have lost social prestige, salary increases and customers or clients, simply because attired in threadbare, smutty or trite verbal Ain't but the. dough -to live at swell Joints like tills 1 one." Even college graduates will parade their, fraternity or sorority pins and show ofl their honors, as a college loitered sport sweater, while their language is often 1 a disgrace to a truly educated person. ; Arc Your Words In Style'.' . ' In . his excellent volume on advertising copy, G.. B. Hotchlviss has effectively brought.out the personality' distinctions between words which are classed as synonyms. Notice the following quotations: "We can speak of a bunch of flowers, but a. bunch of girls is a bevy: a bevy of elephants . is a herd;'a'herd of thieves Is a galls; a gang of angels Is a host; a host o. r wolves is a pack; a pack of geese is a flock: a. flocjc of acrobats is a troupe; a troupe of bees Is a swai'm: a swarm of pigs is a drove; a drove cf horsemen Is- a-troop: -a troop of fish is a school; a school of partridges is a covey;- a covey of police Is a squad; a squad of editors is a statf; a staff of salesmen Is a crew." *Vnd the above synonyms do not exhaust our Engllsli words descriptive of a group. Notice, 1 moreover, the unfavorable "feeling tone," as we call it in advertisinj;, with regard to a "Rang of v nnge!s." New Tailoring- For Ideas '• "She was a skinny maiden'' also violates proper phrasing or verbal feeling tone. The adjective ."skinny" has n masculine flavor, '-reminiscent of freckle-faced boys, dirty and disheveled," as they play ball on a vacant lot. The word "maiden", however, has n. distinctly romantic, feminine connotation. So "skinny maiden" Jars' our sensitivity. When • attractive girls- employ Inng and .vulgarity,. profanity or "ain't," they also -produce a verbal discord In the otherwise harmonious ensemble of appearance, clothing, and conversation. It requires very little effort to tailor your ideas in keeping with the. - demands of cultured modern society. Slovenly speech and verbal vulgarity have cost many, people salary Increases.
