His only recourse is By-DON.GOODWIN * If pride goes-before a fall, what goes .before pride? Very frequently a job promotion. It's a heady feeling all right, moving up • the ladder, and the '. rung itself means .little. A nev.'ly made Pfc. can be as unsufferable as a newly made V.P. Nothing, • as • a matter of fact, makes a .man 'more vulnerable than a promotion. It exposes him to contempt from below and censure from above. . If he doesn't hobnob with the old gang, he's a swellhead. If-he does, he hasn't "grown" with the job. To grow without swelling is a sizable order, but such is ex- : to be- friendly, unassuming and— for a while at least—as unbossy as the job permits. A MAN'S first thought on receiving a promotion • is to rush out and tell the world. His second is (or should be): Whoa, boy! Maybe the company 'wants to announce it Maybe the promotion is. one of several and there are "politics" involved. At the very least, wouldn't it sound boastful? These are considerations to be weighed,.and usually, in'the.ab- sense of an official announcement, it's safest to wait for the wore to .get around, not denying it if asked, but not volunteering in- Galveston Pep Club GOLDEN YIARS Elects New Leaders A Letter To A Boss As Retirement Comes By JUDY WINSLOW pected of the newly promoted formation either. "• Going slow is, in fact, the key How does he keep the estepm of those he now outranks and still meet his superior's expectation? Demanded is that slippery- vir- ture, modesty. Unfortunately modesty doesn't come in tablets and can't be purchased at the drugstore. A man must watch his .every word and deed, being modest in actionlf not in thought. 1 MEN who go up, however, tend to -look up, and even "nice-guys" may unwittingly snub someone below them. Frequently more, than feelings are hurt. . _ " Orders mysteriously disappear. Mail is lost. Inefficiency soars. -Who do the.higher ups blame? Not the mail boy.'Not the secretaries. The new man, that's who. Is he "big enough" for'the job? The snub may have been trifling; it doesn't matter. Who does the guy think, he is, lording it over his old buddies? Big shot, eh? Well, we'll see. A stranger filling the job wouldn't have encountered such sensitivity. But in the case of a..pro : motion, the new man is the 'old man, and woe betide him if he to passing through the period unscathed. Go slow with your pet reforms, your fresh approaches. Go slow first-naming your new equals. Go slow availing yourself of the privileges that go' with the job — longer lunch hours, fatter'expense accounts. Above all, go slow stepping on toes. The toes may belong to a heel, and the heel may some day be YOUR boss. Q & A oil P's & Q's (Q) "My wife insists I invite my employer home for dinner — then hit him up for a raise.
