Builriini! the early post-.suffrnge riays when the wholel dca of women actually in politics scared the living day- liBhts out of male politicians.

Yet one older woman I know, mov- ! Ing to a new to«-n Just a year ago,! has made enough friends on her own so that she Is busy and happy, and she rarely I spends a lonely day. How d I d she manage it, when to many older women In the same town sit around lonely „ ,, . and feeling neg- Ruth llllleu Jected? Well, the most Important thing in her favor is that she Is ready and I willing to eo at a moment's notice Perhaps the little excursion she is asked to share Is not particularly inviting:, being more in the nature of a dull errand than anything else That doesn't make Mrs. s. hesitate a moment. She says sure she'd like lo go, and she can be ready to set out in 10 minutes. That trip might not be much fun. but she is making a friend while she LS making the little trip. And when something more cx-iiing come.s along it is remembered that she Is always pleased to go, and gels invited. i Then. too. she scrupulously re- j turns all favora and hospitality. She | doesn't expect people to be nice to | her simply because she is an older woman living alone. When they nre. she tries to do something Ju=t a? nice in return. And she isn't sell-conscious about her ase~feeling out of pincc with any woman who isn't in her own age group. She is likely to be downtown shopping with a young neighbor as with an older one. she isn't constantly referring to herself as of any certain age, so her age isn't ! important to others. j She Is a good sport .too: not one ' to complain when things go wrong.! Nor does she bore her friends with ' tales of woe. She has been able to make a place for herself in a new commtl- i nity because she is eager enough to ' make friends to accept every opportunity that comes along to be with others. That attitude Is what It takes at ; any age to get to know people when you are a stranger, but determined not to stay one. i Box Office Opens 7:00 Show Starts 7:15 p.m. Admission 9c & 30c Al All Times LAST TIMES TONITE 2 Hils!
