Oosnell Methodist W.S.C.S. meets It deeply pains men to he»r wom«n try to tel! « funny story— especially men who think they are pretty funny themselves. Radio's Henry Moigin, writing in "Today's Woman," describes hU reaction to a woman telling a Joke like this: "The most she'll get from me will be a face twisted In disgust and a series of hollow groans as though H knife were sticking in my back. Which Is about the way I feel when women tell Jokes." There are a lot of rca-som why women don't shine as storytellers Number one reason Is because so many men share Henry Morgan's viewpoint. When a woman opens her mouth to tell a Joke their attitude dares her to try to be funny Contrast that with the Interested, expectant look women courteously plaster on their faces when > man starts to tell a story and It's easy to sec why women lack the self- assurance a good storyteller must have. Ni-inber IR P O Is (fiat while a woman is supposed to laugh sally and not V a prude if a man tells story a little bit risque — women know they will be criticized if they tel! a story it is considered quite all rfeht for them to hear. BUILD UP THEIR HUSBANDS Number three Is that married women — ever willing to make a sacrifice in order to give their husbands a b'Hld-up—turn over their best stories to their husbands, so that their nen can shine as funny fellows. And who Is it that plays master of ceremonies by saying, "John, tell the story about such-and-such?" It's never another man. It's always a woman—usually a loyal wife. But do men ever say: "Marge, do tell 'em the slory about so-and-so?" You bet they don't. If they know the story, lijey tell It themselves. So. it's no wonder men are usually better storytellers than women. They appropriate or they are gcn- cro>- 'y siren the best stories their - „.„.„. „.„.„,, wiv " I" ck "P- They can always at the home of Mrs. Harold Mcdlill ec "' nt °" a woman to give a story a ' build-up and beg them to tell it Frldar Zorn of Petersburg, ill, are spending several da.vs here as guests . -.- „ — of Mrs. Zorn's brother Dr. Carl 39-inch.

If men would do all that for women—they'd be good storytellers, too. But maybe it's just as well they don't. We've already got enough men who think they're funny fellows fighting lor the center of the stage — without a lot of women trying to get into the act.

ELECTION Continued From Page One Committee, warned that indifference and a resulting small vote would indicate to potential bond buyers that the issue was not fully backed by the taxpayers of the school district.
