They were talking about personality
and the conversation somehow drifted
not unnuturally, since there were do
meu present, to personality In the
6teruer sex and how It manifested
itself In different ways and uudei dif­
ferent circumstances.
One man was delightful to have u
a guest at a party. He made himself
agreeable to all aud somehow man­
aged to lift the burden of au entertain­
ment completely off the shoulders of a
hostess. As soon as he entered he In­
troduced a pleasurable sense of festiv-
ity that communicated Itself to other
guests. Another man did not shine

And then one woman casually re­
marked that the most difficult sociai
role for a man to fill successfully was
that of escort. Not as escort to a con­
cert or lecture or the theater, but to
a social entertainmeut such as a re­
ception or dance.
