PHONE 1234 Sii|»^liif WWf W« Mkv« MfU Oppesiiif What W« Ml«v» Wiwf m • m m Dale Carnegie Expert Speaks To Lions Club Tells Students How to Get Most Good From Attending CoUege An easy-to-take, capsult lesson in the Dale Carnegie course was presented at yesterday's luncheon meeting of. the Corona Lions club by Irving R. Susskind, Dale Carnegie representative from Pomona. His appearance here was arranged by Ronnie Poelstra, program chairman for yesterday's meeting. Mr. Susskind's remarks were especially timely at the meeting yesterday because Lions club members who have sons and daughters going to college had their grownup children as their guests and many of Mr. Susskind's remarks were aimed at the value of learning to get along with people at the same time you are receiving an academic education in college. He pointed out that a good education cannot be fully utilized unless the individual knows how to get along with other people and knows how to assert himself for leadership. Mr. Susskind has been active as an instructor in the Dale Carnegie personality courses for 10 years and his speech yesterday was an in-the-flesh demonstration of the Dale Carnegie technique. However, the technique was not barefacedly evident—except for the fact that his listeners could not help but be awart that he was a Dale Carnegie instructor and therefore could not help but be on the lookout for greater polish than is found in most speakers. They were not disappointed, either, because the polish wo!s tiiere—in a nice, un-obstrustive way, which gave his listeners the feeling that the speaker was truly relaxed and informal. Published Daily for 42 Years Tomorrow's Headlines Today FRIDAY, AUGUST 31. 1956. Boon to Students Mr. Susskind reported that a number of college students take the Dale Carnegie course during the summer vacation period in or-: der to furthei- their advonsenient^^egt in Y^l^afion. the campus and on the campus and to prepare themselves for moi'e effectual careers when they finish school. He told of one 15-year-old boy who took the course and when he was graduated from high school he was offered $10,000 worth of scholarships. He .'-■tressed the importance of being able to get along with other people and the value of being able tu t lipi ess one's view effectively and intelligently. But'Aiore than that, lie put across the idea that it is- of vital importance to let otlHT people know that their work and their efforts are appreciated. It is easy to give criticism but, somehow, more difficult to give prai.se when it is deserved. He pointed out the importance of giving praise to membeis of your own family instiiad of just taking them for granted. Mr. Susskind said that he could appreciate this most forcefully because in the early years of his life he was given to "needling" people and he didn't realize that he was hurting both theni and himself by this vicious habit. NaturaL Hunger "When yoi; criticize a person you ar chipping away at a bit of his life and i! enough people do this constan! ly, pretty soon there is iiotiiing left of that person. Some people even are driven to suicide because they think that nobody appixciates them, nobody cares if tliey live or die. liveryone has a natur;il hunger to be appreciated a;i you will be a better and a happier person if you'^let those around yiiu know that you believe their deeds and efforts are worthwhile." President Charles Sciioenherr conducted the meeting and introduced the students present at the meeting, including his son, Allan. Tlie students and their fathers are pk^tured in the photo accompanying tl'is article. Yesterday's i)rize went to Ken Ihomas.

'".i^íáíiUi DAILY ANALYSIS OF WORLD NEWS -fta- Cadillac Mountain on Mount Desert Island in Main(! is the highest point on the Atlantic (oast of the United States. It is I,r),30 feet high. The British and French are taking precautions against any possible Egyptian stalling at the upcoming negotiations on the Suez Canal crisis. Britain summoned a conferenc(> of the permanent council of NATO to meet in Paris on Wednesday for a briefing on Suez developments, France moved two divisions to the British base of Cyprus. And Britain reportedly is moving a garii-."ion of men from Gibraltar to a new position, presumably closer to Seez. All these maneuvers point up the opening of talks in t.'airo next Monday between Egyptian President Nasser and a negotiating ccmmittee headed by Australian Prime Minister Robert Menzies. Na.sser already ha.«? .Sho^n .signs that the F^gyptiiuis may try to stidl the negotiations. He issued a mild protest against President i;isen-liovi/er's use of the words "international waterway" in his statement on Wednesday, Nasser seized upon a legalistic technicality when it was obvious in tlie presideiU's statement that lie v.'as viewing the canal in terms of its historic role, in that sense, t!)e Suez truly is and always has been an intenjational watmway. But arguing technicalities is an excellent way of dragging out talks endlessly. The longer the n(,'-gotiations drag on, th(i longer Nasser can delay any military action. And th(; longer that's delayed, the l( ss likely it becomes, l ime is on Nasser's side.

The dispatches said Russia has decided that the chance of cashing in on the mid-East trouble is too good to miss. President Eisenhower has acted to clear up what he said was a misunderstanding between the United States and Egypt over his statement that the Suez Canal was internationalized in 1888. Mr. Eisenhower told his news conference that Egypt alone has the rights of ownership in the vital waterway, but he said that under the Treaty of 1888, I'.gypt cannot now or in the future jeopardize use of the canal by other nations.
