While glancing through a book I came across a phrase that has stuck in my memory—"the habit of pleasant, patient friendliness." That Is a quality all of us would do well to cultivate. .Think how much it could do to keep our homos happier, more restful places, Think how it would help us in dealing with our children. Thin k how Ruth MillcU much rn ore without hurrying or trying to hurry others. Elafils for a Personal Creed Tu ram the right to the word "friendliness" we would have to start looking for the best, rather than for the worst in others. We would have to be willing to lend a helping hand whenever possible, to treat others with respect and consideration, to try to leave people feeling more pleased with themselves for having had even a brief encounter with us. Those words imply a lot, But not more than most of us could manage— if \ve were willing to make them a kind of personal creed. KcciUl them now and then—es- pecinlly at moments when nothing .seems to go right. "Pleasant, patient friendliness" will go a long way toward easing those moments. pleasant It would make the tasks and errands that are a part of each day's living. There is a lot implied in those three words — pleasant, patient, friendliness. To earn the right to the word "pleasant" ive would have to take _ _ . , the frowns off our faces, the irri- j *?Og trainer DilCS, lability out of our voices, the Court Martial Told sharpness out of our remnrks. To earn the right to the word 'pruient" we would have to slow down a little. We would need tim« to ccvpe with small problems calmly, to listen to others, to be willing to take our turn, to go through life Woman's Auxiliary Meets In H. B.
