But many of them overlook one important preparation. They don't take that extra 15 minutes to run over in their minds the list of friends and acquaintances they expect to see. That's important, so that they will be prepared to best I give a little of themselves to other guests. Forethought gives one a chance to remember the compliment that can be passed along, the inquiry that shows one Is interested in another's concerns, the bit of news that will be appreciated. Most people lead such busy lives today that «"th Mlllett even those who greatly enjoy each other's company sometimes meet 3ut rarely. For that reason it is important to make the most of occasions when one sees a number of persons he knows and likes. But unless a little forethought is given to each person one is likely ;o see at a party, the opportunity to share something of mutual interest s often passed by. How often have you thought after caving a person, "I should have )Id him about such-and-such?" So next time you are getting ready for a party, take a few minutes to think about the other persons there. Wha t a re you going to offer them? You'l! need something besides a pretty dress, a becoming- hairdo, and a skillful job of makeup.
