Into a New 'Way

of Looking'

By MICHAEL KRAFT
Daily Staff Writer
EVERYBODY knows how to talk.
It's a basic form of communi-
cation. Yet, far too many people
are wasting their lives in loneli-
ness and insecurity because they
use obsolete conversing techniques
long outmoded in our society.
They fail to realize that along
with Dior's New Look and Chrys-
ler's Forward Look there has
emerged, without advertising and
promotion, a look that is far more
important in the struggle to Lead
a Better Life. For unlike ordinary
garden variety Ivy looks, this is
not merely a type of appearance.
It is a way of looking.
CLASSIFIED by modern science
as the Conversational Look,
this method of looking while con-
versing deserves to be mastered
by all progressive, socially aware
college,- students, for they have
played an important part in its
development.
While there are innumerable
ways of looking at friends and
noticing people, devotees of the
Conversational Look have devel-
oped standardized patterns of pre-.
dictable behavior achievable by
anyone possessing an honest desire
to be a sincerely bored conversa-
tionalist.

FIRST, there is the basic sub-
division of the Conversational
Look useful in crowded rooms.
Fondly called the "fishbowl squint"
after its place of origin in the
lobby of Mason hall, this look rre-
sults primarily from the excess of
tobacco fumes being exhaled by
well advertised campus leaders,
sophisticates unable to get into an
Eastern woman's college, and by
those who need to keei their
hands from straying under the
crowded conditions.
But the squint serves a more
fundamental purpose than pro-
tecting the eyes.
As the careful observer and
anxious student will discover, the
squint is an--aid to noticing people
for those - who - just - need-their-
glasses-once-in-a-while. Above all,
the truly modern and efficient
conversationalist does not look
directly at the person with whom
he is conversing.
. He knows how to be detached,
and remain uninvolved, for only
by following this procedure, can
he notice the maximum number
of people.
ONE may begin*the conversation
while facing the person, but
