But a lot of women who know that much don't have the curiosity to sit down and figure out how and why. It is really a simple thing for a woman to do. First of all she ought to think of all the women who are mutual friends and acquaintance! of her husband. She knows pretty' well what her husband thinks about all ot them. Sue Is a bore because she Is always complaining. Nell is good company because she is light-hearted and livens up a party or a small gathering. Martha is quiet but pleasant to be with, because she knows how to listen. Running through the entire list a woman can pretty, well figure out that her Jim or her Bill likes such and such qualities in a woman, Is bored or .annoyed by others. He Like* a Happy Atmosphere He likes a woman with an air ol gaiety. Okay, she asks herself "Am husband. And she can add those likes and dislikes to the list she has made up from his reactions to other women. This shouldn't be too much trouble for any wife. For If a woman is going to spend her life with a man, it will be a far happier life for her If she bores an dannoys him as little as possible. 2 New Members Meet with Club Mrs, Jack Long and Mrs, Clyde Webb met as new members with the Dogwood Home Demonstration Club Wednesday when the group and one guest met at the club house.

AH right, the next question is: "Have I fallen into the habit of chattering so constantly, my husband never seems to pay much attention to what-I nave to say?" He admires a woman who seems to entertain effortlessly and well. "Can I Qualify there?" Only a husband who is rude or unfeeling constantly tells his wife her faults. But if she really pays attention to his reactions a wife can see how she herself bores or antagonizes her given Tuesday night at the club.
