Is a pretty dull person even thought she loves to be with people. The trouble is that Mrs. B. always manages to cut off a conversation before It gets started. If you should tell Mrs. B. that a burglar broke Into your home last night, she probably would say: "That reminds me. I simply must get the lock fixed on my Ruth Millet! back door. It has been broken for a month. But you know how hard it S to get anyone to fix anything." Mention some other bit of exciting, news and Instead of asking questions to bring out the details, Mrs. B. will simply say, "Well, I declare," or "You don't say," or "Well, that's the way things go." Mrs. B. never seems to really respond to anything she hears. A sad story doesn't change the expression on her face though it may bring forth a clucking sound. An enthusiastic approach falls flat because the enthusiasm Isn't picked up. Mrs. B. also has an annoying knack for turning a general conversation toward herself or some member of her family. | What's the real trouble with Mrs. 1 B? It is that though she likes to he with people, she isn't really interested in them or what happens to them. j And nothing makes a person dul- I ler than lack of curiosity about other people and the world about them. When you are talking to such a person everything you have to say falls flat. She b a person from whom you never get sn appropriate response. And Isn't that the real definition of a bore? It's not the way a person acts that makes him a bore but the way he reacts to others. Duplicate League Plays at Hotel \ Mrs. O. W. McCutchen and Mrs. Russell Phillips won first place Saturday afternoon at the Duplicate Bridge League meeting at tha W> Hotel Noble. Other winners in the five table Howell movement were Mrs. C. C.
