A DAD'S DAY SPECIAL

A Tip . To Women-
A tip to -women: don't interrupt
a man's speech if you want to keep
his interest. Interruptions annoy
men more than any other conver
sational fault, - according to a sur
vey of 162 students made by Eu
gene T. McDonald, graduate assist
ant in clinical speech.
Women are more often annoyed
by loud talk, McDonald found,
while both men and women dislike
conceit. Misuse of English ranked
second in annoyance.
Although they opposed gossip,
a large majority of both sexes en
joyed non-malicious discussions of
personalities. Discussion of dates
was taboo in mixed groups but en
joyed by more than half in unmix
ed groups. Profanity and dirty
jokes were condemned, but "shop
talk" was approved.
The old belief that women talk
more than men seems to be con
tradicted by the fact that more
women than men reported diffi
culty in starting a conversation,
talking to strange* and finding in
teresting topics of conversation.
Half the group enjoyed puns,
called by some "the lowest form of
wit." Slightly more men than wo
men enjoyed flattery; slightly more
women than men definitely dis
The purpose of the survey was
to discover what college students
prefer to talk about so that those
who have. conversational difficul
ties may be advised what back
ground they need in books, mag
azines, movies, and radio to fur
nish the basis for interesting con
versation. An experimental course
is to be started this semester to
discuss such problems and to fur
nish conversational practice in
both mixedand unmixed groups.
