So here's the tip: ir you want to Ret ahead in your Job, deliberately avoid civlne anyone the idea that the job isn't really Important to you. Don't spend every free minute chatting with the other girls about where you went last, night and where you're going loiliclil. Nothing makes a job seem less important than escaping from it every chance you get. I.el Whal You I>rm'l Know Be A Challenge. Don't keep giving "I don't know" as an answer. On any new Job Ihere will be. plenty that you don't know. But let that be a challenge to learn rather than an excuse for not doing a certain thing. Don't give women a fishy stare and play up to the men. You are going lo have to work with women arid serve women—it will pay off to treat them with friendly courtesy. Don't make a habit of being a few minutes late to work. The person who rtishes In late every rtay start,* each day at. A disadvantage. Don't act as though your Job is beneath you. Give It dignity by do- Ing It well. Maybe you ARE just working until you can find a husband. But you don't, neett to handicap yourself by giving away that secret. You may not find that husband. And even if you do, you still may want a job. re AIR CONOtTIONED Box Office Opens 7:00 Show Starts 7:15 p.m. Admission 9c & 30c At All Times LAST TIMER TONITE Double Feature Also Metro News TUKS.-WICn.-THURS.
