MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MAECH 12 · 1937 SEVEN Live-Y-ers Have Sixth of Meetings Mrs. Curtis Amen Speaker Personality on' at Y.W.C.A. Reviewing Dale Carnegie's book, "How to Make Friends and Influence People," Mrs. Curtis Amen spoke to the girls of the Y. W. C. A. clubs at the sixth in the Live- Y-er lecture series sponsored by the Y o u n g Women's council Thursday evening at the V. W. C. A. Mrs. Amen sketched the life of the author who was born on a Missouri farm. When he was 11 years old his family moved to a farm -three miles from Warrensville, Mo., so that he could attend school. His farm duties prevented his participation in the social life of the school and he began to develop an inferiority complex. Public Speaking. · Realizing this, he tried to find some compensation and decided to take up one of the school's two leading activities, public speaking. Although he failed at first, he continued until he became very proficient and found that his experiences had given hirri sell confidence. After attempts at salesman- ship and acting, lib began classes 'n public speaking. Mrs. Amen gave some of Mr. Carnegie's ideas, among them that education is ability to meet life's situations and that the average person develops only 10 per cent D£ his mental abilities. She stressed the futility of eritisicm and pointed out that' it is possible to see some good in every human being. Rules for Popularity. The speaker gave Mr. Carne- gies' six rules for popularity: "Be interested in people; smile; remember a man's name is the sweetest and .most important sound in the world to him; be a good listener; talk in terms of the other man's interests; make the other person feel important. In conclusion, a personality lest was taken by the group. Miss Kathleen Simms, new general secretary at -the Y. W. C.
