Personality B Y personality we mean the extent to which one is able to interest and influence other people. If one has a good personality one can go a long way in the world. Personality is important in many ways. P ' or instance, in business if a person goes to someone’s office to try to secure a position, the first thing the employer notices is what kind of personality the applicant has. After talking with the applicant a short time he finds out what kind of personality he or she has. No one wants a person working for him who does not go out of the way to be polite, or who cannot hold his temper, or who cannot see other people’s view of things. In social relationship, personality is necessary. The influence you have on others determines a lot. Is it a good or bad influence? A girl playing tennis loses the game. She is a good loser. She has the right kind of spirit about it. She realizes that although she lost this time there is always the next chance to win. Some people at the match notice her good spirit and that gives them the idea of copying this strong trait of personality she has. Therefore she has a good influence over other people. Some people naturally develop a wider range of personality, while with others it is harder to develop. But a good personality can be acquired by any one who is willing to take the necessary trouble. P ' or example, if you dislike a person be friendly to him even though it hurts underneath. In the end it may result in mutual friendship. You may be able to see his good traits and forget his bad ones. If asked to serve on a committee, serve on it even though it was difficult and you didn’t want to. If playing a game that doesn’t interest you, make believe you are interested. You may not think these instances can determine your personality, but they all amount to a lot. A person can acquire a good personality by getting plenty of rest. If one is tired he is too apt to become disinterested in things. It is too easy to say “I can’t do this” or ‘‘I’m no good at that.” Your temper can get the best of you when you are tired and when you feel that things don’t suit you. When we were children our parents began to teach us good traits. They tried to start us out on the right track. They tried to develop and give us personality, but after all it is oneself who does most of the develop-

advanced; length, 1.55 miles (racing trail, 1 mile and 1,050 feet); vertical descent, 2,060 feet (racing track, 1,760 feet); width 18-60 feet; maximum grade, 35 degrees; exposure, north, east and southeast; depth of snow necessary, 5 inches.” The drive on the bus was beautiful. The sun was shining brightly on the deep-packed snow. Occasionally we passed through pine groves which were laden with glistening snow. As we approached the mountain we caught glimpses through the frosty bus windows of the jagged scar cut down the side of the mountain. Leaving the bus, I started climbing up the trail. It was some job plowing through the snow. Finally, after many rests, I reached the top. The view was stupendous. I could see miles and miles of snow and forests. Away down to the south, I could see the smoke from New York. I fastened on my skis and pushed off. I was flying in the first ten yards. The speed took my breath. The first turn loomed ahead. Now I must stem-turn. Good Lord! I seemed to forget all I ever knew about turning, so I did the only sensible thing — I fell sideways. I went off the trail in a cloud of snow. As it happened, I was not hurt. I was quite abashed. I had not reckoned on such speed, so I stemmed the rest of the way down, taking the turns slowly. I tell you I was relieved when I reached the foot of the mountain. I again boarded the bus and returned to Pitts- field, where I took the train back to New York. I ' m still reading the weather forcasts. I am going to have another try at Thunderbolt. Tommy Combilhs, ' 37.

ing. It means a lot to parents when they hear someone speak of what a good personality their child has. It makes them feel that they have accom- plished something. It makes one feel good to tell them how well they look or what a becoming frock they are wearing. This person will naturally think you are the grandest person in the world. Altogether you get along better with other people if you have a good personality. “You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.” This was one of the secrets of Theodore Roosevelt’s astonishing popularity. Hughes Mearns says, “Personality has its own ways of self expression in language, pictures, invention, thinking, construction, make believe, and bodily movement. Its outward manifestations are often crude, rough and innocently shocking; and so it may remain an undeveloped part of the spirit unless sympathetic and understanding persons are about to help it grow.” Lida Macgill. Nati re ' s Child Oh, wouldn ' t you like to be Nature’s child And stroll in the woods and heath, To be able to mingle with c louds and sky And know nothing but joy — no pain, no grief. And then at night, when the stars shine down, With mother moon and all the clouds, To watch the fairies dance ' round and ' round With ghosts of the past in shining shrouds. If only these mortals would be happy and gay Instead of reaching and grasping for fame: Why not copy the birds that in the treelops sway And live in peace, with no one to blame? We ' re put on this earth for some good cause And we owe a debt to God and man. Whenever at work or play we should pause To thank Him for Ilis helping hand. Frank Via.
