ditions, forestry is a difficult pro-I
fession for women if they wish to
do regular field work. Five years
of specialized study are required
before one can even take the civil
service examinations which field
workers must pass and the one wo-
man who did accomplish that finds
that she has been confined to cleri-
cal work entirely instead of to the
other type.
There are four fields in this pro-
fession, however, in which women;
may be employed. One is doing re-
search work in laboratories and al-I

in Profession.
It has been found that a woman's
greatest handicap in the practice
of law is in getting located when
she has finished her studies. There
are a few offices in the country
which are composed entirely of wo-
men, and unless one can enter such
a place, she generally has Gifficulty
in finding a position.
Perhaps the most interesting of
these offices is that of Judge Flor-
ence Allen of the Supreme Court

Progress for Women in Banking
Requires Background of
Long Training.
Despite the recent rapid advance
>f women in various kinds of busi-;
ness positions, it is still difficult for
them to obtain a foot hold in bank-
ing. Regardless of the previous
education one has, it is generally
necessary for an inexperienced wo-
man who desires to enter this pro-
fession to start as a clerk or sten-
Indeed there are many banks
who dislike to employ women who
have had college training. They
eel that such women are too im-
patient to wait for the slow promo-
tion with such low salaries.
However there are many employ-
ers who prefer college women be-
cause they are more inclined to
prepare themselves for advance-
ment. It is often difficult to secure
such women for these positions
though, because they object to
starting at the very bottom.
The banking field does not hold
as many possibilities for women as
for men. Aside from clerical and
secretarial positions, women are ac-
cepted in Personnel, Public Rela-
tions, and Busness Extentions De-
partments. Recently some large
city banks have instituted Women's
Lepartments at the head of which
is a woman executive.
Although many prefer their wo-
men employees to have had just a
general college course, they all feel
that training in commercial arith-
metic, accounting, and general bus-
mess administration is hhhly de-

Permission Given Students on
Probation or Warning to
Enter Sports.
All women on campus will be al-
lowed to take part in inter-class
and intramural sports, according to
an announcement made by Miss:
Jeanette Perry, Assistant Dean of
Women. As has been the usual .cu$-
tom, eligible women can take part
in as many sports as they wish, but
those who are ineligible must limit
their activity to two hours a week.
"We have made it possible for
the ineligible women to take part
in athletics," said Miss Perry, '"be-
cause we do not wish in any way to
discourage anyone from outside ex-
ercise. The two hours a week that
we have given to ineligible women
will not interfere with their study-
ing, but rather give the outside in-
terest which is necessary to keep
the mind active."
Women who are on probation or
on warning will not, however, be
accorded campus activity points
that are given for participation in
sports. For this reason it will be
necessary that lists of all teams be
handed in to the Deans' of.ice for
