We the Women The woman wlio makes a lasting mpiesjsion on those she meets i Imost always the woman who con- enuates all of her efforts on be- ig one thing. And when you've met her y.y. •emi'inlicr her for lhat one thing. Perhaps it Is for her charm, if ,o, you may be sure she makes * eal effort to please. Or it ma> tie for her good looks— ,11 which case she probably spend* Ear more time and thought on her loofc.s and the selection of her clolnes than does the average wo- :nan. Or. perhaps, it is her vivacity, and if so it is almost certain s.i» has recognized that as her greatest asset, and lias cultivated it. f A. Tne woman who rarely makes * detinue or vivid impression on others is the woman who has never cwieent rated on developing any ona side of her personality until ii U really ouUstanding. H's No Accident Chances are it has r.ever eveti occurred tfl her that women who hai'a more definite personalities than hers probably decided early in lifo what they wanted to be and what impression they wanted to make— and laen concentrated on being lhat one thing- More than likely she thinks it, is jnst ai-cfdt-iil that Mrs. Smith is . T charming, that Mrs. Jones has a .sparkling gaiety that enlivens any gathering, or that Miss Smith always look.i attractive. But it L C II't chance- it's concentration thai .sets these women ppaix frotn other women.
