i Golumn By HAL BOYLE · N»w York-(/P)-The art of bawling out the hired hands is becoming a lost art in the American business world. In the old days when a boss saw ·omething he didn't like, he'd let .out a yelp and dress the culprit down on the spot--in burning language more memorable than grammatical. - But today most bosses seem to hove lost the gift of tongue-lash- Jng. They have f o u n d - i t cheaper, by and large, to hire a psychiatrist to find out what is the matter ·with a derelict employe than it is to hawl the fellow out themselves ftnd end up explaining it all to the V. S. Supreme Court. So many employes know their rights now that an employer is hesitant about pointing out their wrongs. Therefore, it came as something 6f a surprise to me to get the fallowing letter; "Dear Sir: "I have a problem. My boss bawled me out last week and I have a feeling he's going to bawl ine out again this week. "I would quit and get me another job except it's such a nice place to work. The management «ven puts gin in the office water cooler. What can I do? It makes me nervous when the boss bawls me out. (Signed) A Terrified Young Man." Well, Dear Terrified, your problem was so unusual t h a t I took it up with «H the oldtimers I know who can still remember being bawled out by their boss (there are only a few of them left). Here Is the summary of their advice; ' Build up the drama of the situation. When the summons comes to go see the boss, walk into his office with a look of utter happiness. . Get it? You make him t h i n k you bavo no idea of what is going to happen. He feels like a cat playing with a near-sighted mouse. As ho foes off on your misdemeanors, don't make the mjstake QL listening to him. You already know more about what is wrong with your work than he does. Concentrate on your acting. Let the smile fade from your face. Replace it with a look of amazement, then horrnr, then abject hopelessness. Don't make the mistake of arguing with him about your rights. He wouldn't bawl you out in the first place if he hadn't already consulted a couple of attorneys and , the National Labor Relations Roard. And don't interrupt him. Egg him on. If he gets tired of denouncing the faults you have he knows about, tell him a few he hasn't discovered. As he launches out into a fresh tirade, lift your hanging head and let him see the tears in your eyes. Let the tears fall on his desk. 'The main thing is to keep him attacking you as long as possible. Just remember that bosses are like wives--after they wear out their temper they feel ashamed of themselves. Highest French Honor Awirded To Eisenhower Paris-(/P)-France conferred its highest honor--the Medaille Militaire--on Gen. DwiRht D.

Peach out with your other hand and grab his hand and say; "Thanks, chief, thanks. I know I'll be a better man for this." Then, as you go out the door, turn and look at the family photo he has on his desk and say: "Gee,' chief, you've got a fine- Jooking family. Why do you make me cry?' 1 This will bring out the father in him. After all, isn't the office just like one big happy family, too? He will feel so puilty that next week he will probably quietly give you a raise. In any case he won't bawl you out again. He will be too hoarse. Frenchmen Not Unusually Great Lovers, Actor Contends,- It's Same Everywhere By BOB THOMAS Hollywood -(*)- Several years Bgo, three struggling actors named Jean Pierre Aurnont, Louis Jourdan and Claude Dauphin were living together in Paris. Whenever the phone rang, they would jest: "If that's Hollywood with more n.ore centuries as a people, and we have developed an attitude toward sex. It is taken for srantetl.
