For some it pays off handsomely b e cause the h o jpltallty they offer is eagerly accepted and genuinely enjoyed. Others who try just as hard — and so metimes harder —produce ' one dull evening Kiilb Miilctt after another. They know something is wrong, but don't know what. The main difference between the good hostess and the poor one is a difference in attitude. The good hostess really likes to jt people together in her own home. Entertaining to her isn't a dreaded chore, but a real pleasure With that attitude to start with, it naturally follows that she will do everything to insure her guests hav- ng a good time, from bringing together only people she feels will enjoy each other, to putlng each guest in the best, most flattering light. But the hostess who talks about 'having to have a party" or is so concerned with "repaying obliga- .ions" she almost forgets about the enjoyment of her guests. In order to "repay" as many people as possible and not to waste a ilace on anyone she doesn't "owe," :io\vever much that person might add to the party, she often gets together people who have to struggle :o make conversation with each other. And because she has dreaded giving the party in the first place, her whole attitude becomes overanxious and distracted, instead of easy and friendly and relaxed. You can almost hear her sigh Lt. and Mrs. McCullougb Are Complimented at Rose Home Mr. nnd Mrs. Charles Rose of Roselancl entertained at their home last night in honor of Lt. and Mrs. Royal McCullough of Quonsel Point, R.
