A Phi Beta Kappa key isn't the
only key to success in department:
store work.
Although department stores
don't "snoot learning," appear-
ance and attitude are equally
important in getting jobs in this
field, according to Calvin J.
Hall of the University Bureau of
A personnel agent for one of the
largest department stores in the'

country told Hall recently that he
gave special consideration to the
interviewee's posture and appear-
ance when she entered his office
when determining whether or not
he would hire her.
Coeds who appear for inter-
views in collegiate clothes are
under a definite handicap, Hall
said. Since the atmosphere of
a department store is essentially
more "sophisticated," personnel
representatives often find it

WAA Tennis Tournament To Begin

--Summer housecoat is shown
above as pictured in the April
issue of Junior Bazaar. It is
pale pink dotted swiss (the
dots are white) with a small
collar of eyelet cotton, string-
tied in black, and with a volu-
minous dirndl skirt that flows
away in soft folds from the
narrow buckled belt.

The WAA Tennis Club tourna-
ments will be scheduled for play
this week.
Entrants in the all camous wo-
men's doubles, the closed mixed
doubles and the closed singles
must consult the tournament
schedules, which will be posted on
the W.A.B. and Barbour Gym
Bulletin boards, and consult oppo-
nents to arrange first round

matches, which must be played
before Friday. All club members
are listed in the singles tourney,
Ballet Club-Members will meet
at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow in the
Dance Studio of Barbour Gym for
practice for the dance program.
It is important that all member's
be present, according to Barbara
Forster, club manager.

difficult to picture the typical
"bobby-soxer" in such a setting.
Department stores don't think
that success necessarily stems from
a C-studded grade card, but most
colleges offer little in the way of
technical training for jobs in this
field. Consequently, employes gen-
erally start out on a fairly equal
basis in positions such as mer-
chandising, purchasing, general
management and sales.
Representatives are naturally
more interested in a coed who
shows interest herself about her
future work, Hall stated. A stu-
dent who asks questions about
opportunities for advancement,
living conditions and company
policies is much more likely to
get the job than one who "just
doesn't care."
Representatives from two de-
partment stores will be at the
Bureau of Appointments this week
to interview both men and women
for positions in merchandising
and managing. A representative
from Winkleman's Stores in De-
troit will be at the Bureau Tues-
day. Wieboldt Department Stores
in Chicago will have a represen-
tative at the Bureau Thursday
and Friday. Students should call
Extension 371 for appointments.
Song Leaders
Song leaders for Lantern
Night will meet at 5:10 p.m.
Tuesday in the WAB.
Leaders will present the
names of the songs at this time
and draw for position on the
program. Anyone unable to
come may send a representa-
tive or call Patt Newberg at
