IF YOUR HOBBY'S GOOD, HERE'S HOW TO TELL


| January/February 1953


Williamsport, Pa., sent us this article clipped from some paper. We think it worthwhile reprinting as it has some very sound doctrine.

Here's a test to determine if your hobby is a good one.

Gordon Hendrickson of the University of Cincinnati faculty says a good hobby has eight characterizations. It should involve a tangible product that cam be admired by others as well as the hobbyist, fit his age and circumstances, and have a group of devotees in whom can be found social contacts, recognition and acceptance.

Also the hobby should be difficult enough to challenge the skill but not too difficult to prevent some success; it should further and not (interfere with family life; it should not interfere with one's vocation; it should be the hobbyist's servant and not master, and it should have possibilities for growth and continued interests throughout the years.
