Skirts are going up, up, up and
fashion decrees that bare knees will
be revealed in every sport this sea-
Bared knees present a new beauty
problem, for most of our knees aren't
too attractive. That difficulty, how-
ever has been overcome by the com-
plete make-up kit for Bare Knee

at cosmetic counters.
The purse-shape flannel kit with
the beauty aids comes in varied

Says Mrs. Swensiii
College is helpful but not indis-
pensable for the woman ambitious
for a merchandising career, Mrs. Dor-
othy Swenson, noted New York de-
partment store executive believes.
In her 26 years (A experience she
has found that a genuine liking for
people and an intense enthusiasm
has attributed to much of her suc-
cess. .As operating vice-president of
one of the largest department stores
n America, Mrs. Swnson has re-
:narked that toda '. coil ge graduates
are too optimistic in lhe assumption
chat big salaries are the result of
only a few months in the merchan-
disin'g field.
Success Requires Work
She has reached tie end of the hilly
road to success only after years of
diligent store work doing selling and
advertising. Merely getting the
"hang of this business" alone doesn't
spell immediate achievement for the
newly graduated senior, Mrs. Swen-
son maintains.
The copywriting departnent of any
store or newspaper is an excellent
division for the woman seeking a mer-
chandising career to begin in if she is
fortunate to obtain a joh Ihere, Char-
lotte Luber recently found in compil-

ing career information for a nation-
al women's magazine.
Bernice Fitz-Gibbon, outstanding
New York advertising director says,
"It doesn't take brains to write copy,
but one does need a big vocabulary.
Work at intervals when necessary
and cultivate freshness and leisure
conducive to new ideas."
Mrs. Swenson remarks, "No one can
write good copy without getting
steamed up to some extent about the
things they are trying to convince
other people they should have."
Next best way to learn the ropes,
Miss Huber discovered, is to get a
store job, usually selling, and then
pounce on any breaks that happen
along. During the summer the Col-
lege Shops of large department stores
will be easy to break into, but advanc-
ing will be difficult. Joining the
training squad, which includes ex-
perience and classes in store work
plus salary, is often an advantageous
method to begin the climb of the
success ladder, her research shows.
Requisites Are Given
Requisites for the woman planningI
for a merchandising career are spe-
cific in that she must have style sense,
understand public taste, great indus-
try, and have a "thick skin." Miss
Huber also advises that sharp trad-
ing instincts are necessary for this
job which requires much endurance
and vigilance.
A news ability to spot new trends
and keep one jump ahead of the buy-
ing public is a necessary talent. Miss
Huber says that there is both big and
small money in the intriguing field
of mercehandise. Beginning salaries
of sales or technical jobs bring a
remuneration which hovers around
the weekly wage of $20.

offer a chance to match your sport
costume or use the kit as a color
accent for neutral shades. In the
kit is a small tube of a special cream
which is applied overnight to combat
any skin roughness and a tube of a
special beauty film.
After the application of the beau-
ty film which is especially good for
the back of the legs, a tiny dab of
rouge on your knee cap is suggested
for that glowing, outdoor look.
If you want to astonish your room-
mate and the rest of campus you may
be completely bizarre by putting a
black beauty mark on the knee cap.
And, too, should bluebooks interfere
with your attaining a tanned skin
via the sun, you can overcome white,
pasty looking limbs by merely rub-
bing a dark cream which Mother
Nature didn't invent.
