Is reported The woman who finds, herself in the position where she hns to make friends with a new group of women should abide by the following rules: Until you are well-acquainted and I fed that you are realty accepted.! do more listening than talking. But, don't go around repeating to other | members of the group all the things' one member tells you. Don't Join in any criticism of a new acquaintanca. The crowd may b e tearing a woman apart, but they'll resent it if a newcomer'joins in with a lew flat statements of her own. Don't try to outshine your new acquaintances. It Is easier to arouse envy than admiration when you're the stranger in the group. Don't yourself. Stand back friendly and willing to Join in, but remember that a group of women seems to delight in freezing out any newcomer who is too anxious to bs one of them. Modesty Isn't a Bad Idea Don't over-sell yourself. Let your new acquaintances find out things about you gradually. If you try too hard to impress them with all your accomplishments you'll be accused of having too much an opinion of yourself. If you let others find out wuat you have to offer & little at a lime, they'll be much more admiring. Always be willing to do your share of work in any kind of group activity. There Ls no woman more resented than the one who always acts like a guest, willing to be entertained or enjoy the honor of ba- ing on a committee, bx»L always at the last minute fulling down on the job she is supposed t/> do. rules can usually fit In vlth any group of women. room.
