-BRINGING UP BABYS-HINTS COLLECTED BY MRS. DAN CERBER, MOTHER OF 5 Keen-«ar«d secretary, Violet Williams, take* dictation from rapid-talking Sen. Hubert Humphrey. Energetic senator keeps her on a busy schedule. MEMO TO SECRETARIES continued Secretaries are people, not robots · After summoning her for dictation, keep her waiting while you mull around for the right phrase or engage in a long, trivial phone call. Let her guess how to spell difficult foreign names From your shaky pronunciation. Then scrawl corrections all over her neatly typed letters. · Rummage through her filing cabinets, shifting the papers around. Raid her desk, too, for pencils, paper clips, and cigarettes. (Who knows what personal secrets you may discover?) · Treat your secretary as a mechanical device operated by a biiTzer button that you press every five minutes. This will keep her slim as a greyhound. · Be sure to point out every mistake she makes (loud enough, if possible, for others to hear). Never waste'your time on idle praise or inquiries about your secretary's problems. "The education of bosses must start at the top," Clare Jennings, president of the National Secretaries Association, advised those who conducted the Operation Secretary survey. Their findings were evaluated by 13 bosses and 15 secretaries who came up with these general conclusions: 1) secretaries waste too much of their time on routine, clerica^ djitiesL 2) bosses should arrange work to assure that secretarial skill is not wasted; 3) they can save valuable woman-hours by using remote dictation machines; 4) they can improve morale by making their secretaries "personal assistants." It still is the human factor that is most important in die office marriage as it is at home. Merc man may have created the new woman of die business world. Now he has to learn to work widi his invaluable creation. · Aids to Batyi; Athletic Program: Exercise, like sound sleep and balanced meals helps baby grow and grow.
