"Perhaps the best way for a wo-
man to get into the field of forestry
is to marry a forester," said Samuel
iT. Dana, dean oil the School of For-
.estry and Conservation. "Field work

"When a director is in a produc-
tioni she is frequently blinded to the
pleasures of the job by the immi-
nence of the difficulties," said Mrs.
Robert Winters, director of the In-
ternational' Night Program. "One of
the, things which has made the work
enjoyable," said Mrs. Winters, "has
been the number of interesting con-
tacts which I have made. Mr. Huff,
the campus electrician, is an exam-
ple. No one realizes what an ir'-
portant part this small, jovial man
plays in the life of the campus. He
has charge of all the lighting, spots,
and floods in campus buildings, and'
has alarge stock of amusing ane-
dotes; about past productions. Mr.
Nico Charissi, who gave several
dances on the program, has heer/en-
tertained by President Coolidge and
the King of Spain.''
In speaking of her experiences,
Mrs. Winters said, "I have always
been told that the janitor of the
building 'could make or mar a pro-
duction. Likewise, a director must
have the good-will of advertisers,
printers, and fellow directors of
campus productions. The old idea
that a director could do or say any-
thing under the guise of artistic
temperarent no longer holds true."
