1. The CURIOSITY of a Cat.

2. The TENACITY of a Bulldog.

3. The DETERMINATION of a Cab Driver.

4. The DIPLOMACY of a wayward husband.

5. The PATIENCE of a self-sacrificing wife.

6. The DEDUCTIVE POWERS of Sherlock Holmes.

7. The PERSUASIVENESS of a job-hunting politician.

8. The ENTHUSIASM of a radio announcer.

9. The ALERTNESS of a fox terrier.

10. The SELF-ASSURANCE of a seminary graduate.

11. The TIRELESS PERSISTENCE of a bill collector.
