HERE'S A NAME FOR YOUR DOG

Do you feel at a loss when trying to select a suitable name for your favorite pet? If so, read this item; perhaps it will help.

The librarian recently ran across a list of pet names published in the children's magazine, ''Jack and Jill.'' This list is comprised of names which the readers of that magazine have suggested as good names for pets. Since some children of the community have come to the library in search of names for family pets, the librarian wishes to publish the pet names listed in ''Jack and Jill.'' This item will list names for dogs, while those for cats, goats, chickens, rabbits, and goldfish will be published in future issues of ''The Slater News.''

''Jack and Jill'' advises one to consider the animal's size, color, and disposition before finally deciding on a name for a pet.

The names suggested for dogs are as follows: Jingle, Mitzi, Pooch, Sunday, Nudgie, Inky, Teddy, King, Stub, Snooper, Brownie, Bounce, Brucie, Blitzie, Puppet, Punk, Gamin, Big Shot, Copper, Snippet, Goon, Mugadee, Wiggles, Tippy Tin, Dinkie, Bum, Racket, Smoky, Wendy, Curly, Jigger, Vicky.

[Column 4] LINES FROM THE LIBRARY

Several of our Story Hour children started to school this year for the first time. From all reports, they are happy in this new experience and greet each school day with a great deal of enthusiasm. To these tiny tots and their teachers, we say ''Good luck, and a happy year in the first grade.''

Let's say ''Happy Birthday'' to Peggy Scarce, who was nine years old on September 6, Peggy, a member of the Girl's Library Club, tells us that her birthday was a very happy one. You see, she received that alligator shoulder-strap bag she has been wanting for a long time.

Peggy is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. L. T. Scarce of Slater. She attends the local grammer school, where she is a member of the fourth grade.

We wish for Peggy many more birthdays which will bring just as much happiness as this one which has just passed.

Jimmie Wilson, one of our Story Hour boys, also had a birthday on September 6. This was Jimmie's sixth birthday, and he celebrated with a party.

The following children attended: Doris Smith, Aaron McCollum, Lee McCollum, Marjorie Pittman, Katherine Pittman, David McCauley, and Clara Veal.

Also: Rosa Nell Addington, Patty Addington, Dale McWhite, Patsy Hogan, Gail Hogan, Margaret Williams, Jerry Williams, and Harold Wilson.

This party was a happy occasion for Jimmie, and he's still enjoying the nice gifts which he received.

Jimmie is the youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Wilson. He has our best wishes for many more happy birthdays.

LADIES HATS CREATE MUCH CURIOSITY

Unquestionably, women's hats will be one of the more interesting things in the world of tomorrow, which is about to envelop us any day in a thoroughly disagreeable manner, according to some of the famous predicators of atomic doom.

Now and then we like to wonder what match-box shaped contrivances and Rube Goldberg millinery nightmares women will be wearing in ten years.

The current millinery malady is stimulating. There are hats that make short women look tall and slender, hats that shorten tall women, and other topsy-turvy hats that look as though they are the dream world answer to the tired working girl or house wife.

But there has also appeared a factor in women's head pieces which is profoundly disappointing. Some of the ladies, it appears, seem to have lost their grip; for some of the old millinery sense of abandon seems to have drifted away.

We are speaking of the numerous women who appear on the street with what looks like a white dish towel wound turban style around their heads, or father's old shaving towel.

If this is the case, the future is plain. When women start to forget about really crazy hats and are happy with towels - brother, watch out. There's only one implication.

That is, women are thinking. Can all those dish towel clad heads be filling up with disturbing ideas - argument provoking thoughts?

Better get your wife a new hat, gents, and avoid answering all those serious questions on world affairs.

SOFT DRINK TAXES PAY TUITION FEES

Every time a Costa Rican citizen gets thirsty and buys a soft drink, he is helping to underwrite some child's free education according to the Middle American Information Bureau. Approximately a third of a penny on each bottle sold goes to the government of Costa Rica in taxes to pay tuition fees for the rising generation. Grade school education, which is free, is compulsory in this Middle American republic, and young people may also attend high school and the National University without cost, provided their parents own no property other than a home.

When you're wrestling with the pots and pans after that big Sunday dinner, you'd probably raise an eyebrow if anyone suggested cleaning them with a squash. But you could—if the squash belonged to the versatile loofa family. The loofa, which grows in many Middle American countries and looks like a giant cucumber, is today one of the largest sources of the world's sponge supply, according to the Middle America Information Bureau.

When specially treated with water and quicklime, loofas— which sometimes grow as long as thirty inches—cease to be vegetables and become sponges composed of strong, tough fibers. These fibers are coarse enough to make excellent material for heavy cleaning. But loofas have many other commercial and industrial uses. Before the war, the United States imported as many as one million a year. During the war years, this amount rose to five million.

Of these five million, a great many went down to the sea in ships. Because of their absorbent quality, loofas are much in demand for the engine rooms of great merchant vessels. Used in filter boxes, for example, they soak up oil and grease, yet do not interfere with the flow of water to the great boilers. An average United Fruit Company ship, for example, might require as many as 150 loofas a month.

Before Pearl Harbor, Japan supplied nearly all the loofas used commercially. When the war cut off that source, it was necessary to develop a new one, and quickly. To the rescue came the agriculturalists of Guatamala, Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, El Salvador, Cuba and other Middle American countries. Cuba in particular instituted an extensive program of production, which it is continuing at the present time. Thus a new item has been added to the long list of vital imports which the southern republics supply to their North American neighbors.

FOOTBALL SCHEDULE IS ANNOUNCED

Mr. W. A. Woodruff, coach of the Slater-Marietta High School Football Team, has announced that football practice is well underway at the local school.

There are only four regulars who played last year returning to school this year, who are Stroud, Barnett, Revis, and Ramsey. However, the school is contemplating putting out a winning team this year, as many boys are already showing favorable progress. Among these are Dover, Murray, Baker, and several others.

Below is the planned schedule of games to be played by the Slater-Marietta Football Team during the coming season:

Sept. 26—Fountain Inn—There Oct. 3—Paris—Here Oct. 10—Westville—Here Oct 17—Piedmont—There Oct. 23—Roebuck—Here Oct 31—Paris—There Nov. 7—Duncan—There Nov. 14—Parker B—Undecided ______________________________ Common House Fly Is Dangerous Insect

Summer is on the wane, but one of the drawbacks of balmy weather—the house fly—still is with us.

Vicious and dangerous, the house fly usually is chock full of germs, every conceivable type of germ which can cut down working hours.

You don't have to worry about a fly biting you to make you ill. It's easier than that for the fly to spread bacteria in the home and factory.

The fly does its dirty work with its six feet, each of which is equipped with two little pads. These pads are covered with a film of sticky substance which picks up filth.

But the legs and feet of the fly are also covered with an array of bristles which also pick up a goodly share of dirt.

The targets of a fly are many. They are objects which every worker touches every day. There is the piece of buttered bread, the open bottle of milk, the uncovered piece of meat on the kitchen table.

Don't let the fly clean its feet in your house on your food. Keep healthy by keeping flies dead.

On September 21, Miss Camille Cleveland, Field Director of the Girl Scouts in Greenville County, accompanied the two Greenville girls to Asheville where plans were made for the November meeting in Asheville. At this preliminary meeting, which was held at the Battery Park Hotel, representatives were present from Asheville and Gastonia in North Carolina and from Spartanburg, South Carolina. These representatives met with the Greenville group. The Scouts and thier leaders visited the auditorium where the meeting is to be held. Afterwards, the group had dinner at the George Vanderbilt Hotel.

Plans are now being made here at Slater for Scout officials of the local troop to attend all, or at least a part, of the Asheville meeting.

Scout leaders for the Senior Troop here at Slater are Miss Eloise Loftis and Mrs. L. H. Buchanan.

Watch the grits you buy and be sure they are the best you can buy - if the degerminated grits on the market are not enriched, don't buy them. People should learn to eat homeground grits if the law isn't enforced to make these out-ofstate corn millers enrich their degerminated grits. If you as consumers demand they be enriched, these companies will know there's more to it than a fancy dream dreamt up by long-haired college professors. Don't say ''Grandpa grew up on grits and lived to be 90'' unless you are sure what kind of grits he ate. Two to one they were home ground grits with all the good left in. Two to one the pretty white grits of today would have made Grandpa laugh and say, ''sissy grits I call 'em.''

[Column 1] WITH OUR VETERANS

Barney E. DeWease, Jr.

Prior to his induction, Barney was employed as a cloth doffer in Weave Room No. 1. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Barney DeWease of Slater. After serving six months in the states, he was shipped overseas to the Asiatic-Pacific Area, where he saw action in three major campaigns, Iwo Jima, Oahu and Guam. Barney returned to work here on his former job soon after receiving his Honorable Discharge in April 1946. At the time of his discharge from the Navy, he was S-1/C.

James L. Batson

This man first began working for our Plant in 1938, and at the time of his induction was employed as a yarn checker in the Preparation Department. He remained in the states twenty-six months, and served with the Corps of the Military Police. He served almost two years in the E. T. O. and saw action in battles in Ireland, Scotland, and England. James received his Honorable Discharge Dec. 20, 1945, and returned to work at this Plant as a supply clerk in May, 1946.

Perry M. Rampey

Perry began working here as a weaver in 1939 and was employed in Weave Room No. 1 at the time that he was called to service in May, 1943. He remained in the states fifteen months before going overseas, where he served nineteen months in the E. T. O., participating in battles in French, Belgium, and German territory. In a few days after receiving his Honorable Discharge in April, 1946, Perry accepted his old job back here.

William M. Lybrand, Jr.

Before coming here to work in 1943, Mr. Lybrand was Genneral Overseer in the Preparation Department at Stanley Mill. He was employed by this Company as an Overseer of the third shift in the Preparation Department, and was still employed as overseer when he was called to the Army in May, 1944. He received the regular rifle training and special training as a radio operator. He served sixteen months in the E. T. O., where he was on active combat duty during two major campaigns. Almost immediately upon receiving his Honorable Discharge, Mr. Lybrand returned to work with us. He is now enrolled as a Veteran Trainee in our Weaving Department.

John M. Jackson

John was working here as a slasher helper when he joined the Navy in Oct., 1944. After receiving six months of training in the states, he shipped out and served one year in the Pacific Area, where he was on active combat duty during the campaign of Okinawa. He was discharged as S-1/C April 1, 1946, and returned to work on his former job with us in June.

John D. Edwards

John entered service with the Navy in March of 1944. Before that time he worked for our Plant in the Cloth Room as a packer. He received three months of training in the states, then shipped out to the Pacific Theater. He remained

[Picture spans 2-4] The above picture shows the bridal party of the Dewease-McMakin wedding.

Shown above are Mrs. Wilson and her granddaughter, Joyce Sue Wilson, who also celebrated a birthday. The little boy, Donnie Sherrill Wilson, a grandson, also celebrated his birthday on this occasion.

[Column 4] LET'S PLAN THAT HALLOWEEN PARTY

Now that the boys are returning to work in increasing numbers, Halloween offers a wonderful opportunity for a mixed evening party - reunion or get-aquainted variety. If someone is lucky enough to have a house or large apartment, so much the better, but a good party doesn't ask for more than a clean floor and a desire to have a good time.

As always, the main problems confronting the hostess at any gathering are those having to do with food and entertainment, so we have here a few suggestions. By all means have six or eight others share the expense, work and ideas. It is too easy for the party to become a burden when one person is responsible for it, and there are few ways of becoming acquainted as successful as en-

were Mrs. Allison Hathaway, matron of honor, and Miss Robbie Bishop, bridesmaid.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a light blue gabardine suit with black accessories. Her corsage was red rose buds.

Immediately after the ceremony, a reception was held at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Barney E. Dewease, of Slater.

Following a week's honeymoon trip to Lookout Mountain, Chattanooga, Tenn., the couple are now at home at No. 207 Butler Avenue, Greenville.

Out of town guests who attended the wedding included the following: Mr. J. M. Hathaway and Mr. and Mrs. Allison Hathaway, from Pageland; Mr. Joe Ward, Greensboro; Miss Robbie Bishop, Greenville; Mrs. Mrs. L. R. Morgan, Mrs. Minnie Buckner, Mrs. Vivian Howlington, Miss Ethel Buckner, and Mr. Cecil Buckner, all from Asheville; Mrs. Talmadge Mayfield, Greenville; and Mr. James Henderson from Green River.

listing in a dish-washing corps.

If you have four or five carowners on your guest list, progressive dinners are an excellent idea. One or two people can be responsible for cocktails; another couple for soup and salad; a third in the next block or upstairs apartment can serve the main course; a fourth can prepare dessert; and the fifth will lend her living room for the evening. If your dining room table is small, the serving can be simplified by letting the guests help themselves buffer style and putting trays on their laps or on end tables. If your living room is large, the group can be divided up and placed at bridge tables.

If the party is an after-dinner event, a few light refreshments served half-way through the evening will suffice. Potato chips and popcorn can be brought in big cans, and a large mixing bowl of cream cheese, anchovy paste, onions and Worcestershire sauce is an excellent concoction for potato chip dunkers. Incidentally, cold drinks are a must with the above.

As for the entertainment side of the party, an old game currently enjoying a revival is one appropriately called ''Ghosts.'' ''Ghosts'' can be played by any where from 6 to 30 people and requires only a sheet, a black cloth and a broom. The director and a person chosen by the group to be ''it'' stay in the room while the rest of the guests leave to choose the Ghost. He re-enters wearing a sheet which trails on the floor and which is held above him by the broom to disguse his height. The black cloth is used as a mask and is pinned or pasted to the sheet where the face should be. Then the person who is ''it'' must guess the identity of the Ghost. If he does guess the name of the Ghost, the Ghost becomes ''it.'' If not, he must pay a forfeit. Then a new ''it'' is chosen and the game continues.

A game for the sedentary is nameless as far as we know, but consists of cutting out and pasting on shirt laundry cardboard advertisements from the Saturday Evening Post, Ladies Home Journal or other magazines of that size. The object of the game is to include the picture and slogan of the product but not the name, then hold up the cardboard before the guests and have them write down the name of the product. The player who guesses the most products correctly may be given a prize, or may be asked to pay a forfeit - announced at the end of the game.

Basketball is a popular sport at Slater. Plans are underway for several teams here at Slater this winter.

Boat piers at the lake (new last year) will be completed by summer, and the camp expects to have a fleet of 12 rowboats for use by the scouts on this five-acre body of water. The camp chapel has been improved by the addition of a cupola and a bell given by Fred M. Medlock of Laurens, and by the addition of benches in the chapel given by Mr. and Mrs. Traverse S. Foster of Greenville.

Camp Old Indian had an enrollment of more than a thousand boy-weeks last summer and next season promises to be even larger, Mr. Williamson said. The camp had an enviable health record last summer, he added, with no serious accidents, and, according to the report made by Dr. Alva S. Pack, chairman of the health and safety committee, the campers gained 4,000 pounds of weight during the summer, or an average of four pounds per boy per week.

The ideal camp experience comes to the scout who attends camp with his troop, camp officials feel. The camp program offers an opportunity for troops to attend as a unit and to carry on their own program, supplemented by general camp activities and the assistance of the central camp staff.

Periods for next summer, to begin with the evening meal on Wednesday and close with the noon meal the following Tuesday, have been scheduled as follows: first period, June 11-17, pioneer camp - camp staff only; second period, June 18-24; third, June 25-July 1; fourth, July 2-8; fifth, July 9-15; sixth, July 16-22; and seventh, July 23-29.

[Column 2] SLATER DAY BY DAY

Today's column is a note of public thanks to the person or persons responsible for bringing to Slater two very good pictures recently. They are ''Sister Kenny'' and ''Stanley and Livingston.''

''Sister Kenny'' is a pictorial story of the life of Miss Elizabeth Kenny, Australian bush nurse who discovered a new and practical and revolutionary method of treatment for the victims of infantile paralysis - a method that leaves the patient whole and well and uncrippled with no trace of the disease.

''Stanley and Livingston'' is the story of the adventures of David Livingston, missionary explorer who went from London to Africa in the latter part of the last century. The things he found and the works he accomplished while in the Dark Continent provide a thrilling and inspiring two hours of entertainment.

Long ago educators recognized the advantage of pictures as an educational factor, and more recently many of our schools and churches have been using visual aids as a supplement to teaching. ''One picture is worth a hundred words.''

Mostly, we think of the movies as a source of entertainment, but they are much more than juat that; they are a source of great influence on the lives of the peoples of a community.

In Slater, the majority of movie goers are our young people. When these young people see in pictured stories the lives of the great people who have had a part in making advances in medicine, science, religion, literature, art, music, politics, or anything that goes toward making living better, they themselves are inspired to appreciate and achieve greatness.

Another reason why these two pictures are especially appreciated is that people naturally seek some form of recreation, and when good, clean, stimulating fun is provided, the tendancy to seek out undesirable forms of excitement is lessened.

Thanx for a couple of really outstanding pictures!

him by leaving him at home instead of taking him to the Holy Land with her, he rents her mansion to her dearest enemy and mother of his ladylove, where he masquerades as her butler, disguising his pal. Bill, as her gardener, and Muggsy, the college grind and Latin coach, as her housemaid. And all this sheme is not only to provide them with ready cash, but to enable them to discover whether their lady-loves are flirting with wealthier suitors. Their plans are upset when Aunt Sarah cancels her trip to the Holy Land.

The cast includes an affected society matron; her two charming daughters; a self-important banker; a fatuous villege poet; the college grind's jealous sweetheart; a timid dean; a superstitious colored cook; besides Peter, who is always in hot water; his pal, Bill; and Peter's aunt. The female impersonation is a riot.

The cast is as follows: Miss Sarah Pepperdine, Peter's aunt —Ruth Laws; Jasmine Jackson, Aunt Sarah's darky cook —Kathleen Reynolds; Cicero Murglethorpe, the dean of Elwood College—Jimmie Pierce; Peter Pepperdine, always in hot water—N. E. Hughes; Bill Bradshaw, Peter's pal—Gene Cox; Thorndyke Murglethorpe, Muggsy — Russel Hampton; Mrs. Georgiana Clarkson, a social climber—Mary Dodson; Nadine Clarkston, Peter's sweetheart—Fannie Mae Murton; Peggy Clarkston, Bill's sweetheart — Doris Hargrove; Malvina Potts, Muggsy's goddess—Bobbie McMullan; John Boliver, a wealthy banker — Harold Knight; and Dupont Darby, the poet—Roy Lebrand.

Admission for the play will be 25c for school children and 37c for adults and others. Advance tickets will be sold at the school. Proceeds will be used for a class trip to Washington, D. C.

Mrs. Wilma M. Cox, the class sponsor, is directing the play. _________________________ Religion is what the individual does with his own solitude. If you are never solitary you are never religious. — Dean Inge.

Some Hints For The Lady Folks

Did you know that both the Labor Department in Washington and the New York Herald Tribune have prepared pamphlets to help you plan, buy for and prepare meals for two? Information of this nature is always invaluable, because most of the better cook books have recipes for four or more, and no matter how you divide them, you never seem to come out right. For these pamphlets, write to the Department of Labor, Statistical Division, Washington, D. C.; and to the New York Herald Tribune, Food Editor, New York, New York, asking for Cooking for Two. * * * Next time you have to put a dish of food directly on the ice, place a fruit jar rubber ring under it. The ring will stick to both the ice and dish and

[article continues on column 3, middle section]

will hold the latter in place. * * * Rather than dirty a grate or rolling pin, rub to pieces of dry bread together when you want crumbs again. Do you use those on cauliflower? It's amazing what they do for an otherwise uninteresting dish, and you don't have to fuss with hollandaise sauce. Speaking of

[article continues on column 4, middle section]

bread, try croutons in tomato or pea soup—fried in butter, they' delicious. If you're short on butter, use bacon fat. * * * When a recipe calls for egg whites alone, place the yolks in a well-greased baking dish which can in turn be placed in a pan of boiling water. When cooked, the yolks can be used as salad or hot dish garnishes. If you have any leftover fried eggs, just chop them up and

Miss Davis (Con't. from page 1, col. 4)

She also made a brief tour of the village to see the churches, homes, and clinic.

On this occasion, a number of parents, teachers, and high school students were guests of the Civic Club to hear Miss Davis as she gave some of her impressions of America, and now taking place in England. At the close of her discussion, Miss Davis conducted an interesting "question and answer" period, which was for the benefit of those who wished to ask questions.

As an added attraction for the evening, Miss Kathleen Farnsworth, teacher in the local school, rendered a cello number, after which she presented the following high school girls in a special vocal number: Misses Patricia Summey, Freida Thornton, Betty Vassey, Faye Dean, and Carolyn Marsh. The piano accompaniment for these numbers was played by Mrs. W. W. Stephenson.

Those who heard Miss Davis thoroughly enjoyed her discussion, and hope that she will visit Slater again at her earliest convenience.

The program for this meeting was planned by Miss Inez Graham and Mrs. W. Earle Reid. __________________________ [column 5]

LINES FROM THE LIBRARY

We were very happy to have Betty Scarce and Gaile ("Butch") Burgess read stories at a recent meeting of the Thursday Afternoon Story Hour group. Betty read "The Travels of a Fox," while "Butch" read "Ask Mr. Bear." Both of these children are in the first grade this year, and Miss Margaret Coleman is their teacher. These girls read fluently and with expression, and all those present enjoyed hearing them. We not only congratulate Betty and "Butch" for their fine reading progress, but we also commend their parents and their teacher for the part they have played in the achievements of these children. _______________ It is always a great pleasure to welcome new members to the library. Our library roll continues to increase, and we credit a great deal of this to you readers who, finding joy in your reading, wish to shre it with others by telling them what the library means to you. To you who have not yet joined the library, we extend an invitation to do so at your earliest convenience. We need you, and we believe that the library can add a great deal to your "reading happiness."

This week we greet Mrs. Grace Griffin as a new library member. Mrs. Griffin is one of the second grade teachers in the local school, and we hope that the library can assist her not only in securing materials for her own reading, but in supplying materials for her school work, as well.

Mrs. Christine Stockton Miller is also a new member. Christine and her husband lived in Slater until recently, when they moved to Cleveland. We welcome Christine as a library member, and look forward to having her visit the library as often as possible.

Little Betty Ruth Ross is another new member, both for the library and for the Thursday Afternoon Story Hour group. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Ross. Her sister, Violet, has been a member of the Girls' Library Club for quite a while.

Our latest addition to the library roll is Fred Cashion. Fred is an employee of the Slater Manufacturing Co., Inc. and works in the Weaving Department. _____________ We feel that Mr. and Mrs. Edward Laws and family deserve honorable mention for their unusual reading record. Living out of the village, they sometimes find it a little inconvenient to get to the library. Nevertheless, they do visit the library regularly, always getting a supply of books sufficient to last until the next trip. We understand that the whole family reads these books, after which they are often read by relatives and neighbors who live near. To the Edward Laws family, we say "Congratulations! Keep up the good work!

Everyone Needs Self Confidence (Courtesy ''SHE'')

''How can I gain self-confi dence?'' Day in and day out hundreds of people ask psychiatrists this question.

What these people are asking is, ''How can I learn to have faith in myself and the things I do, to meet people and life with self-assurance and trust?'' And what they want most

earnestly to know is, ''Can it be done?''

''Yes,'' says psychiatry. By learning to see themselves realistically, the unconfident can turn the trick of believing in themselves. Seeing yourself realistically simply means seeing yourself as you are - counting your good points as well as your demerits, your accomplishments as well as your failures. And if you can tke this prescription, you'll be taking psychic vitamins.

The unconfident neede the psychic vitamin of realism, for they have no clear vision of themselves. They know their lacks well, but not their virtues. They are expert at scorning, belittling, disparaging and underrating themselves - but not at valuing themselves. Their talents aren't spectacular enough, they think. Their achievements are nothing. To their good qualities, they're blind. People may think well of them. The evidence may be stacked high in their favor. But they don't budge their selfrespect from its same low level.

[Column 3] Let's say their job pays off with a fat check at the end of the week. They still insist it's an ''unimportant'' job. Friends say their party was gay. They say it should have been gayer. If they're praised, praise rolls off their minds. If they're called attractive, they feel it is flattery. They've lost the knack of believing good things about themselves.

''I know I don't think very much of myself,'' said a young man to a psychiatrist. ''I know I always think other people are

superior to me. But I can't seem to help it . . . it's a habit.''

It's a habit, all right - one of deflating ourselves while we inflate others. And it's a disastrous habit calculated to send anyone's self-confidence into a depression, to make any of us feel small and inadequate and unworthy and unwanted. But, fortunately, it's a habit that can be changed. And the best way to change it is by cultivating a policy of thinking well of ourselves, of putting together again the opinion of ourselves that we've torn to shreds.

Take a good look at your assets, says the psychiatrist, instead of forever harping on your faults. In other words, instead of always thinking about what they've got that you haven't got, start thinking about what you've got.

''But what are my assets?'' many ask in bewilderment. ''I didn't know I had any.'' Assets aren't world-shaking things reserved for the great and the mighty. All of us have them. They are everything - little or big - that we do in the course of a day or a year, and that we do well. These things that we do well are the evidence in our favor. They can be our credit sheet in life. The reason so many of us pass them up is that we're so busy staring at other people's glory and at our own shortcomings.

So here are few to remind you. Maybe you're well-read or well-informed. Maybe you have a pleasing personality, do nice things for others, get along swimmingly with people. Maybe you keep your home in apple-pie order, though you haven't remarked it to yourself lately. Maybe that job of yours is ''responsible'' or ''interesting'' as everyone says it is, though you yourself talk it down. And maybe there are lost of other jobs you do well that you count as mere nothings. Maybe, in other words, you've been seeing yourself lopsidely - your good points and accomplishments in a haze, your failings in bold relief. To see yourself realistically, on the other hand, means to see yourself whole, to let your good qualities get a grip on your thinking. And when they get that grip - when you earnestly believe in them - you'll have all the confidence you want.

William James, the great psychologist, spoke of a per-

[Column 5] son's ''inner atmosphere.'' It's the feeling tone our criss-crossing thoughts and emotions create deep inside of us. It may be a nice, warm, cozy feeling of self-content, of knowing that we are good enough for life. Or it may be just the opposite. We, ourselves, make it the one or the other.

If we are ridden with doubt and mistrust, if our self-respect is shabby then the prevailing message we send to our hearts daily is one of self-disapproval and sick despair. But if, on the other hand, our prevailing message is that we are as good as the next fellow and can tackle our life job as well, then our inner mood glows with satisfaction and vitality and hope. We feel equal to ''anything that may turn up,'' as James says.

This emotion-warming conviction that we are equal to life is the healthy inner glow that self-confidence creates. - Stella K. Newman
