to accept small wages during the first
years of his experience, he warned.
If *you don't enjoy meeting lots of
people, stay completely out of the
salesmanship business, Cossart ad-
vised. He pointed out that one great
weakness of many men in this pro-
fession is that they do not have a
sincere understanding of their cus-
tomers, and are not able to create
any new demand for the product
they are selling.
"There is no job so varied, so ever-
changing, so much a gamble, as
fashion buying," Josephine Sutton,
merchandising manager of. Himel-
hoch Brothers and Company, De-
troit, told a group of students yes-
terday in the League Ballroom.

look for people to fill them, Miss Sut-.

Superintendent L. H. Lamb of the
Flint Schools said that the most im-
portant thing of all was to "act na-
tural and at ease" when being in-
terviewed. "Give the interviewer a
chance to find out your chatracter and
personality," he said. Several points
emphasized were: "don't talk too
much, mention. only pertinent facts,
do not bluff, and give the person in-
terviewing you credit for some com-
mon sense,"
State Shielded
From Disease
Mexican Plague Avoided
By Cooperative Plan
No longer will the state suffer the
outbreaks of certain contagious dis-
eases, Dr. Don W. Gudakunst, state
health commissioner, pointed out yes-
trday, as he explained a new co-
p.perative plan for protecting the
health of Michigan communities from
disease among imported Mexican beet
field workers.
In the past, a percentage of the'
10,00 Mexicans, imported for the
laborious back breaking work in the
beet fields, were afflicted with tuber-
culosis, syphilis or some type of con-
t ,gious disease. Only last summer,
Dr. Gudakunst recalled, the out-
break of Shiga dysentery in Shiawas-
see county was attributed to the Mexi-
The new plan calls for a medical
examination of all prospective Mexi-
cans who will be imported. None will
be allowed to leave Texas who have
any evidence of the aforementioned
The cost of this examination will
be borne by both the state health de-
partment and the four farmer. asso-
ciations which boast a membership
of 20,000. The state will pay its share
of the burden from the funds allotted
by the United States Public Health
"It is due to the excellent coopera-
tion received from thebeet growers'
associations that this step has bee
made possible." "It will do away with
the necessary expenditure of a con-
siderable amount of money for the
hospitalization of tuberculosis pa-
tients. The program will add greatly
to the health protection of the people
of Michigan"

Toward Europe,


(Editor's Note: Tiis is the first of
three arA icea reporting~ the observa-
tions of Prof. Preston Slosson on con-
ditions in Europe.)
President Roosevelt's sentiments to-
ward European affairs are unani-
mdusly applauded by the British,
Prof. Preston Slosson of the history
department, who is now traveling in
Europe, reports in a letter to mem-
bers of the history faculty.
England as a whole, however, seems
to wonder why the President is so
alarmed just now. There is a tend-
ency among the British, Professor
Slosson observes, to accept continental
crises calmly, and the press is less
"jumpy" than our own. This lack of
concern, he suggests, may result from
their becoming "so accustomed over
here to living on the flanks of a vol-
cano that they sleep soundly of nights
and go about their business as usual."
In Professor Slosson's opinion, how->
ever, the European situation is dan-
gerous. "The ambiguous intentions of
Mussolini in Italy," he writes, "seem
to me highly alarming, for if he stays,
in Spain, France is bound to do
something about it. Hitler wil! back'
Mussolini and the fat's in the fire."
Italy by itself would not be very
dangerous without Germany, Profes-
sor Slosson believes." There is a de-
lightful, though probably apochry-

phal, story going the rounds just
now," he relates, "that at Munich
Hitler said, 'Remember this, if we' go
to war Italy will be on our side,' and
that Chamberlain replied, 'Well, after
all, turn about is fair play; we had
to put up with having the Italians
on our side last time'."
In Aberystwyth, Wales, where he
taught for a week in the University
of Wales, Professor Slosson was sur-
prised to find a great many universi-
ty professors holding ultra-radical
views. The whole country of Wales is
radical,, he writes, and the Labor
Party hasa strong hold among the
miners of south Wales. The Welsh be-
lieve that Chamberlain is moved less
by love of peace in his "turn the other
cheek to the dictators" 'policy than
by dread and hatred of even the mild-
est forms of socialism, being unwill-
ing to risk a Fascist regime in any
part of Europe, including even Eng-
land, rather than yield anything to
the demands of 1bor.
Angell To Talk On Reich
Prof. Robert C. Angell, of the so-
ciolo~ department, who returned re-
cently from Germany after a visit of
several months, will talk on "Inside
Germany," at 7 p.m. Sunday at the
Westminster Guild meeting.
