An Exhibit of Direct Interest to Every Citizen of Washington Beginning this Monday, January 13, and extending tor two weeki. the entire Exhibit of the National Aniline and Chemical Company, Inc., formerly shown at the National Exposition of Chemical Industries, Grand Central Palace, New York, will be on display in the Auditorium of Woodward & Lothrop. in this city. It is of more than usual importance as marking the first com prehensive display of FAST AMERICAN DYES It is, further, a display that every American man and wo man, boy and girl, should see?the exhibit of fifty American dyes that have stood all tests of exposure to light, washing, weather and scouring, which were applied to the German dyes of the pre-war period. You will be proud of the splendid show ing of the achievements of the past four years in American dye manufacture, marking our complete emancipation from foreign made dyes. The termination of the conflict abroad releases for civilian use many basic dyeing materials, formerly required for the khaki uniforms of the army and the blue suits of the navy. With the ushering in of the peace period *e may look forward to the discovery of more and more colors and color tone*. This initial exhibit, therefore, should be of special interest to every wearer of colored clothing, as well as to manufacturers of dyes, clothing and textiles, and will be equally instructive to students and teachers. BEGINNING MONDAY, JANUARY 13. In the Woodward & Lothrop Auditorram Admission Free Yon Are lavited GOOD COMPANY By DOROTHY DIX THE WORLD'S HIGHEST PAID WOMAN WRITER A correspondent writ** i -You often h?r it said tha? sue* a one U "Rood company. *?? meant by that expression L>oes imply that one i? Intellectual. Not necessarily- Home ?J dreariest company and the bores In the world arc those his browed individual, -ho are top heavy with learning, and vno go monologulng through life about fhe dry-as-dust subject of which they happen to have made a stud . Nobody can imagine passing ? ous evening listening to an ab.trus' discourse on higher ??thematlc.^ Nor do we yearn for undlluted doaM of the society of those who converse like an understudy of a woman s culture club. My definition of good company is an individual who is an inte talker, and an equally intelligent listener An intelligent uilker is a person who has observation, thoughts, imagination and who pos sesses the power to translate these into word picture* for us. He. or she. keeps us perpetually by presenting to us a never ending supply of new impressions, ideas and suggestion* that open up fresh vistas of thought to us. And an intelligent listener is one who. in the slang of the day. "gets us." One who his the intelligence^ the comprehension, the background ..f a common experience and com mon reading to enable them to un derstand what we are saying, and th#? imagination to folio* *nt unknown fields. They are those who are an inspiration to talk to. because they always kno*. Given an individual who knows how to talk and how to listen, and vou have one who is good eompen> and he or she must be equally ef ficient at either end of the game, for social intercourse, to be agreeable, must be a mixed performance. The most entertaining person on earth soon wearies us if he or she mo nopodias the conversation, w hile the greatest spell binder falls silent in the presence of an audience as un responsive as a store dummy. 1 should say that the first quali fication of a person who is pood company is sympathy. The peoplo whom we enjoy betnc with are those who can enter into our moods, who can weep with us when we weep and rejoice with us when we re joice They must have the hu manitv that enables them to taka an Interest in our personal affairs. We like to be with those who ar? willing to discuss our dressmakers and doctors' virtues and shortcom ings w ith us; who take a real heart interest in our new automobile and who are thrilled over our daughters beaux and our sons' records at col lege. and who evince a real concern in our successes and disappoint ments. .. ... The society of the eympatheti man or woman is always sought because the one subject of perpetual interest to each and every one of us is the eternal I. and as long as any one will listen, with an appearance : of interest, to the story of our lives, we ramble on and on. tasting the sweetest joy that existence has to give up. The second quality those who are good company must possess is cheerfulness. We turn as instinct ively to the Jolly man or woman, to the one who has always a funny storv to tell and wliot- laughter .a hung on a hair trigger, as a flow r docs to the sun Nobody s idea of good company is the sour, solemn vlsaged Individual whose mouth .? drawn down Into a cynical line, ml whose bitter smile is a blight on any good time. None of us willingly seek the so cletv of those who have always some hard luck story to tell anl who weep upon our breasts and recite to us the Iliad of their woes. We are terribly sorry lor those who have lost their money and those who have been robbed by the death of a loved one. and for the women who have married drunkards, anJ the men who have married spenders or flirts, but we are not pining to hear all of the heart rending de tails of their misfortunes^ We have troubles enough of our own without being burdened with those of our friends and acquaint ances. and so when we seek compan ionship we pick out those who are optimists, who lift us up on * of their hope and cheer, and who make us feel that nod ? in His heaven and all la right with the world We do not long for the so ciety of the pessimists who till us up with their own bilious forebodings, who send us away with a dark-brewn taste in our mouths, and the e?r\ic tion that everything is perfectly rot ten Nind the world is going to the bow-wows.
