BEAUTY PLUS BRAINS:
Supervisor Lists Qualities
Needed for Airline Hostess
Airlines hostessing is a personality
job, not a "glamour career" Faye
Smith, hostess supervisor of the De-
troit branch of the Pennsylvania-
Central Airlines Corporation, declared
in an interview yesterday.
In Ann Arbor to interview girls
interested in airlines hostessing work,
Miss Smith said that one of her pur-
poses in visiting the various colleges
of the state is to clear the confusion
concerning this work. Although "good
looks" are an important factor in
choosing a girl, she said, other re-
quirements having been fulfilled,
emphasis is placed on character
qualities of poise, judgment and
charm, rather than on beauty.
"We use the word 'hostess' to des-
cribe the work," Miss Smith con-
tinued, "in the sense that the pas-
sengers are considered guests of the
company, and the hostess, as repres-
entative of the company, is respon-
sible for the happiness and welfare
of each passenger."
Miss Smith enumerated other bas-
ic requirements for airlines work as:
age, 21 to 27 years; height, 5' 2" to
5' 7"; and weight, 105 lbs. to 135 lbs.
The educational requirement includes
either four years of accredited col-
The committee of delegates which
represented the University at the
Conference of University Advisors to
foreign students held in Chicago
the end of April, has submitted its
final report to President Alexander
"The committee recommended no
increase in the current number of
foreign students in the University,"
Dr. Esson M. Gale, counselor to for-
eign students and member of the
committee, said yesterday.
The report is a broad review of
problems and policies related to in-
ternational education at institutions
in the United States and contains
recommendations of the delegates,
according to Dr. Gale. The Deans
Conference must act on the report
before the recommendations become
lege work, or two years of college plus
two years of business experience, or
a registered nurse's certificate.
In college work Miss Smith said
she would recommend study in the
fields of sociology, psychology and
modern languages. "Any business
experience," she said, "is valuable,
especially that in dealing with peo-
Miss Smith, who visited Michigan
State College just before coming to
this campus, said that she had been
"surprised at the manner of dress
and bearing of the girls" to whom she
had talked. "There is no room for
'co-eds' in the airlines business," she
said, stressing the importance of
busines!;-like attitude rand efficiency
as well as of good grooming and
Hostessing for airlines is a "wide-
open field," Miss Smith declared, one
of the reasons being the rapid turn-
over of girls due to marriage, which
she termed almost a sure result in
this kind of work. She also men-
tioned that planes are now being built
three- times as large as the old ones,
in some cases, and two hostesses in-
stead of one are often required.
"Some of the plane interiors are as
high as thirty feet," she declared,
"and look like regular hotel lobbies."
Miss !mith plans to visit other
colhge canuses ini Michigan ii-
terviewiug gilS whoi wish to enroll
in the July or August training
clas!,es. She can be reached at the
Detroit City Airport by girly who did
not have the oportunity to speak
with her here.

a British-American bloc had "waged
an offensive" against Russia at Paris,
Byrnes declared there was no such
bloc in existence.
'The Secretary discussed at length
Molotov's assertion that Byrnes had
made "a somewhat inaccurate state-

an American proposal for a 25-year
treaty to keep Germany disarmed.
Byrnes repeated a statement he
had made previously that Stalin on
December 24 declared he would
"wholeheartedly support" such a
treaty if the United States proposed
