Mrs. Lawrence Good Listeners Always Welcome The good listener is usually welcome in any group, but sometimes the good listener gets tired of listening and would like to do some of the talking for a change. Here's a letter from a woman who is fed up with always being the quiet member of a group. She says: "I can talk well — and, I think, fairly interestingly — when I am j with one other \ j person. But when I find myself in a group of even five or six, I never seem to manage to get a word in edgeways. "If I start to say something, somebody else breaks in and takes the floor. So I give up and go back to listening, smiling and nodding — i and laughing at the right moment, j "Is there some trick in being j able to break into a conversation! and have j T our say?" j If you are talking about getting a i chance to have your say in a group of women, then you are probably just being too polite. When a group of women get together, the ones who do the talking aren't timid about breaking into ai conversation in a loud enough voice ' to command attention. And, once they get the attention of their audience, they aren't too modest to hold it until it is grabbed by someone else. The women who do the talking in any crowd usually have several things in common. They are vivacious, and so can make even the most trivial small talk sound important. They aren't hesitant in talking about themselves, or taking up someone else's time by going into detail over what they think, where they've been, and the people they know. And they speak fast enough and loud enough to drown out any competition. That's all the trick there is to it. But since nobody ever put her foot in her mouth by being a good listener—and plenty of big talkers are always doing just that—don't worry OSCEOLA NEWS By Bettye Nelle Stan- Carp- and Mrs. E. S.
