She received the honorarium at summer commencement exercises last sveek. The college began awarding "Baby of Arts" degrees to children of ATSC alumni last year. 80 Killed in Typhoon One of the most useful things a mother can (each a daughter ,s! how to say "No" graciously but firmly. Being able to -ay "No" and make it stick without giving offense will stand a girl in ~x>d stead all of her life. In the years of dating and courtship a girl's greatest protection Is a gentle but firm "No"—whether she is being urged to take a drink she has promised her parents she won't take, or go to a questionable place, or fend off a young man with too-ambitious ideas. Once she's a homcmaker, the firm but gentle "No" Is still important. She uses I' on the persistent salesman who is trying to get her to buy something she knows she hasn't any business buying. SomtfliriM "No" Is Too Keeblt She uses It to keep from accepting Invitations she doesn't doesn't want to accept, from getting herself tangled up In organiv-'lnns she doesn't really want to Join, and also to keen from letting her '-lends ri'n her life for her. When she has children, being able to say "No" and making It stick Is still important. And .so it is throughout her life. Lots of women can say "No" lo the things i -. life they know they should say "No" to. But all too often it's a feeble "No" they can't make stick. Or it's a defiant "No" that ni-ouses antagonism and makes enemies. So teach your daughter how to say "No" both <— aciously and f'rm- allowed 'ormcr friends of Mis.
