M. U. Mrs. William Edmondscn was | nujued president of the Armorel i Baptist Women's Missionary Union 1 Monday afternoon at a program- busme.s?; session at the home of Mrs. T. R. Watson. Twelve members and two guests heard the Royal Service program directed by Mrs. Charles Brown. Prayerg by Mrs. S. H. Rebstock preceded the devotional by Mrs. Era Dixon. Program participants were. Mrs. W. O. Anderson, Mrs. Ray Downing, Mrs. W, L. Smith. Mrs. C, C. Elliott. Mrs. Adrian Russell, and Mrs. Arch Beard. Other, officers named were, Mr,?. Finnetl Garrison, vice - president; Mrs. C. C Elliott, secretary; Mrs. Hugh Dixon, treasurer; atid Mrs. N. C "attersoh, director of youth work. A social hour followed. to me." That ia the most wishy- washy declaration In the English anguaga. And yet a lot of woman have the Idea that when they make that statement, they are being agreeable, easy-to-get-alonc-with, and somehow, a Iritle l>etter than the people who know what they like and say so. Take the wne, lor fnsiance, who the tt-dcesn't-really-matter-to- :ne type. Her husband a.sks if she would like to go to a movie and instead of saying "Yes" or "No"—she goes "noble" .on hEni. "If you want to, it's all right with me," she says in a namby-pamby voice. Or she makes a suggestion and he doesn't instantly agree. So, rather than stand up for her idea, she shrugs it off with, "Well, it was J a suggestion. It doesn't really make any difference to me." Such a woman rarely brings any new interests to her husband or inspires him to do anything he hasn't thought up himself. Service Program Given for WMU "Mighty .Vfovenicnfs in South America" was the Royal Service program directed by Mrs. Charley Petrified Log! 'A goddess, disappointed at finding only wet logs when she wished to cook a meal, turned the logs to stone, according to one modern Indian legend explaining the petrified forest of Arizona. Holrls Honor First U. S. woman senator to be elected without first having been appointed lo fill out her husband's term was Margaret Chase Smith, whom Maine elected to the Senate in 1948. way of tin things he want* to do, she thinks sn« is being a helpful and understanding wife. Don't B< Wiihr-Waihr So don't b» wishy-washy about your Ideas, beliefs, opinion* plans—unless you want to be ' wishy-washy person who nmk«i n few definite contributions ta anj relationship. If you like good music, tay jo. If you hate something say so. If you want to go somewhere, be positive about It. If you don't want to go, be as positive. At least, then, you're .somebody— a real person. And others can get to know you because they know your Itkes and dislikes. The "it-dccsn't-make-any-dtffer- ence-to-me" person is never much more than just a pale shadow of the person she is with. And actually she isn't even honest. For it does make a different lo you whether you do this or that. Pretending it dcesn't Is Just being afraid to speak your own mind and to assert your own Individuality.
