Talk Given on Religion in Business "Hcligion in Business" was the theme of a talk presented by Basil Piipnntonis at a meeting of the Wesley WSCS Thursday evening in the Wesley Fellowship Hall. The program also included selections by the newly organized Wesley band, directed by Ronald Ives, playing "Faith of Our Fathers," "I Love to Tell the Story" and "Stand Up for Jesus." The audience sang the concluding hymn with the band accompanying. Jn his talk, Mr. Papanlonis spoke of the basic truths of religion which enable a man to live his life without limitations. "The sole purpose of man is to express God," he said. "And he should be motivated by a desire to he of service to his fellow man. The law of God is set up for your well being. M a n , in his separation from God, creates problems. If he allows the Jaw of God to reign, man will find peace of mind and his task in life will be made easy." Mr. Papantonis said thallh busi ness a man should strive to prac ticc the teachings of the Master ant that religion should not be mcrelj a Sunday morning observance.

Women Very Alert: Alistair Cooke By E L I Z A B E T H TOOMEY NEW Y O R K (U!')--A man needs more tact to compliment a woman's intelligence than to praise her beauty. This can be traced to a girl's basic guide for .social success: Let him think he's smarter. Such mental modesty on the part of A m e r i c a n women is a snare and a delusion, Alistair Cookc claims, though not in those exact words. He finds women in this country (he grew up in England and later became an A m e r i c a n citizen) far more alert and informed than the men on such subjects as a r t , music and literature. What's more, he came to most of his conclusions while lecturing to American worn en's clubs, a group often cartooned as simple-minded and o v e r- drcsscd. U. S. Commentary A suave and scholarly gentle man, Cooke became f a m o u s in England during World War II for his weekly broadcasts on life in the United States. Recently he became well known here as master of ceremonies on the erudite "Omnibus" television program. ''It is a well known historical cliche that the arts of life had to b6 left to the American woman in pioneer days," he began, then paused and, with a frankness evident in all his comments, said, "Please write down what I say exactly. I often find myself quoted so--so blowsily." This is a comment guaranteed to irritate an interviewer, jf it is any comfort to the men who arc about to get the full blast of Cookc's scorn, but he manages to make his most biting comments in a kindly tone. "We are long past the pioneer stage," he continued, "yet the intelligence of American men still goes into their work. It is astounding to see a man of absolutely dazzling intelligence about something like oil pumping or coal mining who is simply an ape outside his field." ' He paused, sipped his orangeade reflectively, and went on:' "A strong hangover from the American pioneer days is t h e j i t y he said was not so evident American male's suspicion I h a t j a m o n K American women who get arts are sissy, and better left to behind c o m m u n i t y art projects, try ,.,,,,,,,,., lo improve their own knowledge of cultural subjects and further their l i y i i l O l w m » * * » M t ^i* «yjt. t, 10 CIJ1U H.U "An educated American woman', c m l r l r c n ' s ;ir t education, is much more of an original than " I f f h a d ^n artistic i an educated.

Therefore, two-ear listening doubles the number of excited neurons. Which is all very well, but what's important, Garner said, i s w h a t happens when the impulses from the excited neurons reach the base membrane responsible for hearing. 'If two identical distributions of excitation go into the central nerv- combine, but they will not neces sarily double the total number of active elements," he said. "Between them they wil! produce a new distribution which is wider than either alone, but not twice as wide as either." How Loud Is Loud? He then showed, mathematically, that the distribution of impulses from two ears was only about one- quarter wider than from either ear alone. His big objective was to devise a mathematical scale for measur- , -- ing the loudness of loudness--from loud probably depends in the first a little l o u d to very loud--that instance on how many neurons anyicould be applied to practically noise sets off, he said. everyone with more or less normal nitely is not twice as noisy when heard with both ears, he said--it is only about one-quarter noisier. Dr. W. R. Garner, of the psychological laboratory of the Johns H o p k i n s University, Baltimore, was reporting on scientific research intended to provide a precise w a y of measuring how loud is loud. Noise and Neurons Neurons are the n c r v c cells which transmit any impulse to thq central nervous system, and how The one-ear theory of listening is based on the idea that it cuts the number of neurons a noise "fires" hearing. There is considerable confusion, even among scientists, on how loud is loud. F«b. 19, _ 19S4 9 Maion City Ciobt-G»itlle, Miion C!(y, [a. AN HONEST MAN LOUISVILLE, Ky. (UP) -- Ear! L.
