The Secret of Making a Good First Impression

When you are at a dinner, either formal or informal, do you know just exactly how to create conversation, what to talk about, how to be entertaining? Other guests always appreciate this. It relieves constraint, makes everyone feel happy and

at ease.

At a dance, can you mingle with the men and women, make gracious introductions that arouse the desire for friendship, be so perfectly at ease that everyone around you feels at ease? When you dance, do you know what to say to your partner and how to make her feel happy in your company?

Hostesses like to invite to their theatre and opera parties those who have learned the secret of being perfect guests-those who know what to say and when to say it, what to do and when to do it. It is remarkable the way a good manner can prepossess people in your favor-make them want to know you, and like you.

At weddings, receptions, teas-on all social occasions, do you know what to wear, how to create conversation, how to be entirely at ease? The knowledge of what to do, say, write and wear on all Occasions not only gains many friends but gives one a feeling of poise and power.


HE one sure way to make people like you and want to be with you, is to have an engaging manner. And the only way to have an engaging manner is to be absolutely free from all embarrassment and self-consciousness-to be well-poised and at ease at all times.

Popular men and women always seem to have an irresistible appeal to everyone with whom they come in contact. They always seem able to do the civil and correct thing as easily and naturally as saying "good morning." They are never hesitant, never awkward, never embarrassed. They always seem to know exactly what is expected of them.

Recently a well-known man was guest of honor at a tea given him by a women's organization. Clever women - all of them. Yet it was quite evident that they were flustered, that they were wondering what to do, what to say. They couldn't enjoy themselves, of course, because they were embarrassed. And the guest didn't enjoy himself because their embarrassment made him feel ill at ease.

You will find this to be true no matter where you go, no matter with whom you happen to be. When one is awkward, ill at ease among strangers, always hesitant and in doubt, one never seems to be welcome. But when one knows the secret of an easy, engaging manner, one is able to attract people at first sight.

introductions? Do you know what to wear to dance, a tea, a wedding, a yacht party?

The Outlook

NOVEMBER 8, 1922



HEGEL, the philosopher, in his “Philos


[ocr errors]

ophy of History" 'God governs the world; the actual working of his government and the carrying out of his plan is the history of the world.”

This is my profound religious faith, and I hold that all good men and true should make it their life-work to contribute what they can to carrying out that plan; to making the community in which they dwell more governed by the principle of justice, more pervaded by the spirit of mercy, generosity, and good will, and more guided by reverence and humility. When I became Editor-in-Chief of The Outlook, more than forty years ago, I determined to introduce into it a history of current questions; to make it contain an interpretative history week by week of the world's life. In this history I intended to interpret every question by its effect on the betterment of the community-by its contribution to justice, mercy, and loyalty. The effect of any proposed policy on any party (Democratic, Republican, Progressive, or Prohibition) or on any church (Protestant, Roman Catholic, Jewish, or agnostic) I proposed to ignore. Conventional standards were dropped

out of sight. The only standards I proposed to pay any attention to were the eternal standards of Micah's definition of religion: "To do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God."

Governed in all our editorial policy by this basic purpose the endeavor to state impartially and interpret truthfully the fundamental principles necessary for the welfare of the community -we have also been governed by some other principles which I might call constitutional, though never formulated or written.

We have tried not to judge the motives of public men, but only their actions. We have aimed always to be impartial, but never neutral.

When convinced that we have unintentionally done injustice to any man by a misrepresentation, we make the correction as prominent as the mistake.

We have always made our utmost endeavor with the resources at our command to give our readers an accurate account of the tangled controversies which we have frequently had to report, including the strongest statements we could obtain of the policies opposed to our views. LYMAN ABBOTT.
