Unusual Occupation For Women
Is Post Of Trade Commissioner

By BARBARA DeFRIES 1r
While there may be a dearth of1
activity surrounding the post of For- I
eign Trade Commissioner as far as
some countries are concerned now'
it is bound to be an active field later l
with the closer economic collabora-
tion which is sure to follow the war.
A Trade Commissioner is an offi-
cer of the United States Department
of Commerce stationed in a foreign
country and an official of the Bureau
of Foreign and Domestic Commerce.
It may sound like a lot of title and
responsibility to bestow upon a wom-
an but actually feminine trade com-
missioners are quite an accepted
fact.
Duties Explained
According to Elizabeth Hume, For-
eign Trade Commissioner at Rome,
Italy, the primary duties of such a
commissioner are the gathering, as-
sembling and presenting of iiforma-
tion on the industries and commerce
of the country in which she is sta-
tioned, in such a form that it will be
of practical help to American manu-
factors who want to sell goods on
that particular market.
At posts where there are more
than one Trade Commissioner, each
reports on certain specified commod-
ities. While details of the work vary
from one post to another, in general
the commissioner reports and ren-
ders any service demanded by Amer-
ican business.
Writes Articles
In addition the commissioner
writes descriptive articles of eco-
nomic and trade conditions so that
anyone wanting to study market
possibilities for a given commodity
may use them as a background.
Material for these articles are for
the most part gathered from personal
investigations which involve wide ac-
quaintance with government offi-
cials, business men and industrialists
of the particular country.
"The job of a Trade Commissioner
is not a woman's job in the sense
that it is work done for or with wom-
en or in any way connected with eco-

dents. All interested in the work of
the Center are invited to attend.

nomic problems peculiarly affecting
women," Miss Hume said. "The ca-
reer of Trade Commissioner carries
with it duties and the fact that a
particular commissioner happens to
be a woman is in no way important
in the work."
Qualifications Listed
Qualifications for such a career
involve a good general education with
practical experience in business,
technical experience in any line of
business-shipping, banking, export-
ing, etc.-economics, commercial ge-
ography, problems of international
trade and a knowledge of factors in-
volved in our foreign trade. Also it
is of the utmost importance to have
command of at least one foreign
language.
Miss Hume feels that the best age
for a woman wishing to go into for-
eign trade work is between 30 and 45
years. She must be accustomed to
foreign travel, must have a pleasing
personality and must be able to meet
people of foreign nationality cor-
dially and understandingly. Above
all, she must be cheerful and self-
reliant and must be capable of
adopting herself to strange modes of
life.
While Miss Hume readily admits
that foreign trade offers an attrac-
tive career, it is not suited to every
woman, even if she has the training
and mental ability. "The young
woman who undertakes it must be
prepared to live a life of comparative
loneliness, separated from family
and friends-among strangers."

Skin Infections Are Analyzed;
Suggestions Given For Cures

By ALICE FRETZ
Health Service dermatologists have
a word to say about "that school-
girl complexion."
The biggest skin problem in the
University is acne from which 25 to
30 per cent of the women and about
40 per cent of the men suffer upon
coming in as freshmen. Dermatolo-
gists do not know the exact cause of
this, but it is conjectured that the
internal secretion glands which are
particularly active at adolescence fail
to work properly, causing eruptions,
on the face and back.
The disorder itself is not harmful,
according to Dr. Warren E. Forsythe,
director of the Health Service, "but
the effect that a marred face has
on a senstitive adolescent's person-
ality and happiness is."
Treatment Suggested
The treatment then, not only in-
cludes a high standard of cleanliness,
a diet which cuts out sweets and
starches and external applications
prescribed by the doctor, but a little
psychology of "holding the fort until
you get over it." For most acne dis-
appears with time. Medical opinion
also holds that commercial concoc-
tions are of little or no value. "The
best promotion of healthy skin is
from the inside," Dr. Forsythe re-
minds.
Next to acne in general prevalence
is athletes foot, being found in 15
per cent of women and 50 per cent of
University men. You may have
heard some wild rumors about people
who had to have their feet amputated
because of this disease, but these ru-
mors are completely false. Annoy-
ing though athlete's foot, or ring-
worm, may be, and as much as the
unfortunate sufferer may wish he
had his feet removed, no such situ-

ation exists. It's true that this dis-
ease caused by a fungus may never
be 6 completely cured, however, and
that treatment is very unsatisfac-
tory. The main thing seems to be
to keep the infected areas dry with
astringents.
Boils Analyzed
Boils are another common annoy-
ance to young people-3 per cent of
last year's incoming freshmen were.
afflicted. It seems that when one's
resistance is lowered a staphylococ-
cus germ around the hair roots causes
this painful eruption. More com-
mon when men wore choker collars,
boils are now the bane of athletes,
because of dirty towels and hard rub-
bing. The best treatment is to let
nature take its course.
The mention of the seven year's
itch, which is not particularly wide-
spread right now is apt to bring a
weary look to the eyes of skin doc-
tors. This disease, caused by an
animal parasite, the female of which
burrows into the skin and lays eggs,
was three times as widespread after
the last war as it was before. Doc-
tors went to work and had just suc-
ceeded in reducing it to its normal
status a few years ago. And then
Hitler came along with another war.
Hair on the face for women and
lack of it for men, is just one of
life's little heartaches that you can't
do much about according to Dr. For-
sythe. Like acne, this affliction has
a harmful effect on a person's ap-
pearance and is caused by faulty
functioning of internal secretion
glands in developing sex character-
istics. Because of this women some-
times have the masculine character-
istic of superfluous hair and men
have feminine tendencies to hairless-
ness.

If you're in a quandary as to what
to spend the spring clothes budget
on-a defense uniform or a suit-
your worries are over.
The slim, smart Official Civilian
Defense Outdoor uniform is the ap-
proved defense uniform and it may
easily serve as a spring suit entirely
in keeping with the military spirit
and also that army man's idea of
what the well-dressed woman should
wear.
Smartly , tailored, this suit of de-
fense blue gabardine is just the ticket
for those of you who plan to play
your part in the defense program as
an air raid warden or a clerical
worker. Smart looking air raid war-
dens will certainly keep up the mor-
ale and you'll have them talking
down at the office about your effi-
cient-looking outfit.
You can't forget the all-important

accessories. The jaunty, matching
blue cap perched over one eyebrow
is a must. An essential to the utmost
efficiency in performing your duties
is a flashlight plus a flashlight belt.
Even the well-dressed defense worker
needs jewelry to accentuate her cos-
tume and a gold or silver identifi-
cation bracelet serves the purpose
excellently.
A word of caution about wearing
these uniforms: the official defense
uniform is not to be worn unless the
required course in civilian defense
training has been completed. So,
sign up for these courses and spring
out in this smart uniform so in keep-
ing with this country's all-out prep-
aration for war. Courses now being
offered at the League offer training
for civilian defense.
