Customs in Regard to Bowing. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 22 January 1914
Customs in Regard to Bowing. (ly Mrs. FRANK LEAIlNEi.) One of the tests of good breeding, training, aind culture is in the man ner in which a bow or salutation of recognition is made. A brusque, abrupt' nimanner is rude. A very effusive mannier and a looA bow are worse. Tile correct salutation is between the two extremes. Although according 'to circumnstan ces, a bow may be cordial, friend ly, formal, slight, deferential or familiar, it mnustobe made. A person who has been introduced 'is entitled to recognition. An ilnportant rule about bowing is thit a man must wait for a lady to recognise hin. Between friends the act of bowing is almost sinmul taneous, but it is the privilege of a woman to take the initiative by being the first" to tiole. "Ashas been said,, an iitrodluction entitles orery onie to a bow. : ')nly for very grave reasons would~ anyone ever give a direct "cut," when the claim an introduction imposes has been absolutely forfeited. In a case wbere there' has been inexcus...
