One of our larger companies, car-nine on the major part of its business thru letters written by employes, asked them what they consider to be the responsibilities of a correspondent. Several inter sting answers were given, three f which are included In Aurner's "Effective Business Correspond enee." " Our letters," said the first one, "represent this company and they must show our friendliness. On our letters depend the customer's goodwill and future business." "To convey to the customer the facts In an honest, concise, tactful way and to instill goodwill and friendliness are our responsibility," was the answer of the second employ. " We have the responsibility, first cf all. of satisfying the customer," wrote the third. "A good correspondent should be able to put himself in the customer's place. The letter he writes should be the kind est letter he would like to receive-friendly, courteous, and sympathetic. AH questions should be answered accurately and fully and the letter, of course, should be honestly written." Courtesy and goodwill percolate in an organization from the president to the night watchman. The employ who carries that goodwill Renaissance to Open 28th Season Tomorrow at Club The Renaissance, which fosters Interest in music, drama, painting, sculpture and architecture, will open Its 28th season tomorrow with, a luncheon and musical in the Chicago Woman's club. Appearing on the program will be Loretta Downing, soprano; Glen Drake, tenor, and Doris Briggs, harpist. Kurt Herbert Adler, chorus director of the Chicago Opera company, and Paul Schulze, president of the Municipal Art league, will be among the special guests. The Renaissance is headed by Mrs. Wallls L. Raw. to the customer is worth his or her weight in ... sugar! Army Careerist.

Ain't I the mess t Film It Away. Do you take your job home with you? Are you better off to lock it in your desk file It away for the night? One who signs herself "A-Not. Always-So-White-Collar-Girl " gays, "Years ago when I started on my first Chicago job, another white collar girl recommended that, to master my new job, I should ponder over Its problems and their solution when away from the office. My after-5 life was too absorbing at the time for me to take this advice seriously so I never got into the habit of taking my work home with me, thank goodness! " Several years afterward my self-appointed adviser suffered a mental breakdown which made it necessary, for her to give up her position. "Now my moral Is that one can't think about a job 24 hours a day and remain healthy, well balanced, interesting, and interested. A white collar girl should give her job her full concentration and energy while she is working, but when the day is done, she should close her desk, forget about her work until the next morning, and go forth with anticipation to family, friends, fun. and hobbies."

Child Training Is Guidance, Not Discipline BY GLADYS HUNTINGTON BEVANS Copyright: 1942: By Kewi Syndicate Co- Inc. Children versus grownups. . That really used to be the order of the day. "Children should be seen and not heard " " spare the rod and spoil the child" these and other theories prevailed to a great extent in past days. The stern parent was not the exception. There were, naturally, many under standing and lenient parents, but their number was not legion as it is today. It Is interesting, therefore, oc casionally to receive the testimony of men and women who were reared by a stern father, and who see the errors of the system when they are faced with the bringing up of their own children. One of our readers writes: "I was brought up under a regime of stern discipline, always fair and just, but basically antagonistic. It meant a watchfulness on the part of my parents for undesirable traits that might appear, and an Intense will to eradicate them. "I have read your column for three years. My oldest baby Is a little boy of 2 and the younger a girl of L They are such darlings! The little boy Is adapting himself easily to the household with only a light touch on the guiding line. He is high strung, sensitive, and active, with a quick temper. A perfect type to become a problem, if that Is what was expected of him! The only problem he pre sents to me Is to keep him harmlessly occupied, and we have arranged a regular schedule of occupations that keep us all happy. "This Is where you have helped us all so much. I originally had a goal set for me of perfect discipline, but you showed me how wrong that is. With my own little boy the goal Is approached'easily by helping him to develop according to his own In dividuality. He is not perfect, by any means. He is mischievous when I fail to find proper employment; defiant when I forget and speak too harshly, and so forth, but in almost every instance I have some mistake of my own to blame for his apparent naughtiness.

I have only started on my road, but it looks like such a long, happy one and so intensely in terestlng that I am eager to learn all I can about it.' Out of that Interesting letter a rather original observation Is worth underlining. It Is: "The training of children must be guidance for par ents comes the discipline." SAKS.

W. ) Women Physician and Lawyer Groups Plan Joint Dinner The Women's Bar Association of Illinois and the American Medical Women's association, Chicago branch 2, are holding a joint dinner meeting at 6 o'clock on Wednesday in the Chicago Woman's club. Dr. Beulah Cushman is president of the medical women, who are hostesses for the occasion. The law association is headed by Miss Charlotte Gauer. A subject of Interest to women of both professions, "The Expert Witness," will be discussed by two speak ers. Miss Pearl M. Hart, past president of the women lawyers' associa tion, giving the legal aspects, and Dr. Frances M. Hannett, Instructor in psychiatry on the medical faculty of the University of Chicago, discussing psychological and psychiatric factors. Negro Baritone Shows Growing Art in Recital BY CLAUDIA CASSIDY. Most baritones, having sung Amo- nasro of a Saturday night, would be content to call Sunday a day of rest. Not so William Franklin, who appeared In an ambitious recital pro-gram at Orchestra hall yesterday afternoon, showing little sign of Ver- dlan fatigue from the night before. The young Negro has a remarkably attractive voice, potentially full in range, resonant In texture and even In scale. He needs better focus, rar ticularly in the lower voice, clearer enunciation, and a stronger vocal arch for effective sroiection of tone. The opening phrase of Sibella's " O socca uoiorosa" proved that all these things are within his grasp, and that they are worth the work it will take to develop them. Not that Mr. Franklin will object to work. Yesterday's program was not chosen the easy or the showy way, and it had been studied with musicianship and devotion. Not all of it came off. Schubert's " Der Dop- pelganger" and "Death and the Maiden" are songs as risky as they are rewarding, and the latter is seri ously damaged by omission of the sepulchrally low ending., But want ing to sing them is a long step in the right direction. More immediately effective were the Slbella song, Gretchaninoffs " My Native Land," Hage man's elusive and beautiful "Christ Went Up Into the Hills," and a group of Negro songs which led by way of Malotte's lusty "David and Goliath" into spirituals, Except for faulty enunciation, which blurred the lively text, "David and Goliath" was brilliantly done. It had gusto and salty humor and a sense of theater without which such a song curls up and dies of tedium. By the time Mr. Franklin followed It with f'Go Down Moses" and "Tryin to Get Home," he had established him self in my opinion as a young singer with a future on the recital stage. Marion Geary Randall was the ac companist, and a good one. She knows how to support a voice, and how to help display it- Wedding Mr. and Mrs. J. H.

Bright little figures on drawing paperflowers, candles, or Christmas trees decorate a small section oC the west wall in the south section of Blackstone hall In the Art Institute. The pictures are scarcely masterpieces, but If art lies in the sincere Intent of the artist and the appreciation of the spectator, then these holi day menu cards and tray mats are art. They are the "war work" of Chicago area girls and boys who are enrolled in the Junior Red Cross and are used as holiday favors in hospitals for service men, such as at Great Lakes and Fort Sheridan. Miss Ethel Kay Benson, Junior Red Cross director for the Chicago chapter, explained: "The work isn't at all new, of course, but now the junior group, like the senior, has increased demands. For Instance, we simply can't supply enough of these ash trays," and she picked up a black lacquered one. The ash tray base Is a top from a tin coffee can; next is a round of a smaller tin can, and the top Is the Inverted cone end of a beer can. The patients like them so well they take them along when they leave the hospital. Other materials may have to be found now, but the cans have worked well. The exhibit also has Items to satisfy the most practical minded. There are bedroom slippers, the scuffle type made of two thicknesses of flannel doth and bound with hand cut bias tape. There are ditty bags for those little treasures the patients don't want to check with their clothing upon entering the hospitals. Hot water bag covers, ice bag covers, bedside utility bags, and afghans are examples of other utilitarian articles made by the Kea cross juniors. There are individually decorated writing pads equipped with blotters and small packs of paper and en velopes. There are all kinds of game boards crlbbage, backgammon, check ers. There are bed jackets for women patients, who will be more numerous now that there are WAACs and WAVES as well as army and navy nurses. These items simply indicate the va- Dear Diary BFfcyKV . ? .

Any drive for a special kind cf salvage doesn't mean that the need for all other salvage materials has lessened. In other words, housewives shouldn't neglect saving tin cans just because they are cooperating In the current metal scrap drive. The tin cans are needed, too. The same Is true of greases and fats.
