THIS & THAT By Walter Wendall There are some people in this world who seem to have a marked ability to be public nuisances and to create ene mies right and left. Of course there are many reasons for this and I therefore have no intention of trying to outline them all in this column. But because one of the most im portant thing in this life is the ability to get along with other people, I do want to mention a few ways that I feel are help ful. I am sure at sometime you have met Mr. or Mrs. Wind bag. Individuals who act as though they have some kind of mechanical contraption at tached to their mouths that prevent their ever closing them. Unless they can be the center of all conversations and disputing the opinions of ev eryone else, they are very un happy. These people make great sport out of telling other people they are wrong. And when they tell them, they try to make it as caustic and as humiliating as possible. These people do not seem to recognize the fact that there is no man or woman who really enjoys being told that they are wrong; because it does some thing to their ego. Their first reaction is to go on the , de fense, with the major objec tive to save their face, rather than be convinced. That is why so many normal conversa tions when improperly con ducted can turn into bitter feuds. There is no reason in the world why you should not con vey correct information to others. But there is every rea son why you should be courte ous and considerate in the con veyance of your opinion. In other words, in ' so many in stances, it is not what you say to people, but how you say it. Then I think it is reasonable to conclude that the first step in becoming unpopular and de veloping enemies is to talk in cessantly and never give the other fellow an opportunity to express his opinion. The sec ond step is, to go around criti cising other people and taking advantage of every opportu nity that is afforded you to be little them and show off your knowledge or importance. And the third is to be too aggress ive. By too aggressive I mean those individuals who seem to utterly lack any of the element of retiring. They act like me chanical fly swatters, everytime you turn around they are bang ing their way up front in a given situation. It is nice to know things and it is important to have things but it is far more vital to know how to use them. If you have ability or knowledge without a cultural appreciation of how to use them, you can be an abomination and a real nuisance in your home or community. YOUTHFUL LEADER AT YALE UNIV. October 25 1946 There's a new, dynamic per sonality rising on the intel lectual horizon of a young Ne gro America arid her name is Miss Rena J. Wellers, Yale Di vinity School student and 25 year old daughter of Rev. and Mrs. S. W. Weller of Water bury, Conn. Miss Weller, who is in her final year of residence toward her Yale Ph.D. has from Teacher's College, New Britain, Drew University, Madison, N. J. and Yale Divinty School respectively, Bachelor of Edu cation, Master of Arts and Bachelor of Divinity degrees. As an officer in the christian education deparmtent of the AME Zion denomination, she has recently returned from Europe, where 30 of ,40 na tions in the World's Student Christian Federation met in two world's conferences on the "fu ture of Christianity. At the conferences she repre sented such interracial organi zations as the United Christian Student Council, the United Christian Youth Movement and the World Sunday School Assn. Her European trip carried her through Switzerland, Bel gium, Holland, England and France. In a discourse on her Eu ropean observations at Varick AME Zion church recently, Miss Weller held a mixed audi ence totally absorbed for 45 interesting minutes. This young lady is gifted with an enviable fluency of speech, easy deli very, eloquence and a pene tratng analytical mind which may well elevate her into na tional prominence (as "Mr. Dooley Wilson would say) "as time goes on". Says Miss Weller anent the world outlook for the Christian movement "Among students and young people, Christian forces are as powerful as they have ever been, but the outcome of the human struggle is uncertain as we look at the world scene in terms of political, economic and social tensions." "The uncertainty, however, ELZY FUR CLEANING CO. REPAIRING GLAZING Phone 5-9279 I 268 DIXWELL AVE MRS.

It is my con iction, that the Christian move ment is not dependent upon a belief in success, merely. It is rather a Response which finds expression on every level of human need." Miss Weller is presently en gaged in preparatory work for a second world conference of christian youth to be held in July and August, 1947 in Oslo, Norway.
