I stijp right there," said a happy- faced woman In ^£i£ «i,i,*fN|| her early thirties JL^ A-v«t.Vl figure that •;criticiKlng other 'people is a habit that grows on a : woman through the years, and I | don't Intend to let myself sliD into it like so many women do." S h c's right Ruth Millet! Picking flaws in other people Is a habit, nnd about as vicious a one as a woman can acquire. rt's vicious for several reasons. It ruins the personality of th woman who makes a habit of being critical of others. No woman is ever charming when she Is pointing out what Is wrong with someone else. And It's a vicious habit because It sets a woman apart and makes her lonely. The critical person is never warmly welcomed. Then, too It is a habit that grows harder to break with every year or a woman's life. | DESTRUCTIVE CRITICISM I And, of courcs. the critical woma*> I does a lot of harm through thp years.' She points out faults and magnifies them, tearing down Instead of building up. Next lime you start to critlclxo another person, stop long" enougn to .sec whether or not you're enjoying yourself. If you are. the habit of criticizing has already taken hold of you. with Tall Singing Convention To Be Held Sunday i$s Sanders to Teach Classes For Methodists Miss Mary Sanders o'f Dallas.
