Meeting By Ruth Millttt She has a reputation for doing everything easily and with no fuss or bother. "It's a gift," other women say enviously. But it isn't a gift. She works as hard at a job as any other wor_«.i. The secret of why what she dot's seems simple and easy and of why she never gets in a last'mlnule dither is that she does yesterday what has to be done today. It is putting things off until the last possible minute that gets most, women in a frenzy. The woman who does things easily Is always looking ahead, figuring out what has to bu done tomorrow as well as today, and getting as much of it done today as possible. Secret Is Planning Because she is always one Jump ahead of necessity she has time to take (jure of the unexpected, time [o enjoy what she plans. Any woman who is foresighted enough to work ahead instead of always ^letting herself in for last- minute rush and confusion could do 74th District Chancellor \To Quit After 21 Years I DANVILLE, Ark , Mar. 30. <UP) | —Judge John E. Chambers decided , today *o step down from the Chancellors post which he hns held for the past 21 years. He announced that he will not seek- re-election in the 14th district. Chambers—along a strong man In state-wide politics—was appointed chancellor in 1027 of the district which includes Yell, Logan, Perry and Scot counties.

It isn't a knack or > gift. It Is nothing more than the result of careful planning. And it is the one i tig difference between a house that is run by a woman and a woman that is run by a house. H is also the difference between a calm, capable woman who does things "easily" and a woman who is always in a frantic rush because everything always seems to b° wrong at the last minute.
