(Editor's Note-This is the first in
a series of articles concerning careers
for women.)
There is genuine opportunity for
women to prepare for an exciting
and profitable career in the field
of public relations.
The door is not wide open, but
it will take at least one shoe, size
five AAA.
Business men have taken a long
time to realize the power women
have gathered unto themselves,
and the directors of public rela-
tions programs are only now "dis-
covering" women.
tivity not only covers the business
world but many other worlds as
well - religion, government, ag-
riculture, research of many hues,
foreign trade, law, medicine, poli-
tics, fashion, home economics-in
fact, whereever there is human
relationships, public relations are
likely to be found.
"A deep feeling and under-
standing of the other fellow's
problems - more specifically,
knowing the needs and wants
of the people, is the primary
qualification for those entering
the field," said Mr. Edmund
Wooding of the university jour-
nalism department.
"Public relations is not merely
glorified press agentry," asserted
Wooding, as he told of the "gag
tricks" becoming an old and min-
or part of the field.
IDEA WORK is foremost in
public relations now, with the
question: "what can we do to
make the institution, company or
person a better servant to soci-
ety?" best describing the need for
the new field, Wooding continued.
Although the " women's
angle," such as cosmetic demon-
strations, fashion writing and
society publicizing has a promi-
nent place in the field, there are
other pastures which are just
as green.
Retailing, especially the depart-
ment store, is daily finding new
opportunities for women from of-
ficial hostessing, sales promotion
and advertising to general cus-
tomer relations.

are finding a need for the wo-
man's touch.
Hotels, the amusement world
and travel agencies are seeking
talent that includes an under-
standing of human nature.
Insurance corporations, banks
and political groups are finding
women important in their work.
* * *
NEWSPAPERS, magazines and
libraries are taking on women
with ability to deal with people.
Even an alma mater is interested
in public relation services.
"The field is very broad, and
it would be difficult to get
stuck in a humdrum spot," said
Wooding who told of its general
He named as the two largest
groups; companies and public re-
lation agencies, who are hired as
consultants by large concerns.

WITHIN AN enterprise, you
may specialize in your own de-
sired work, said Wooding, who
described the opportunities:
"There is work to be done on
publications put out by the
company. There are contacts
which must be made with
schools having home economic
programs, and there is publicity
which has. to be written for
newspapers, magazines, radio
and television.
"The work in branch plants is
important too-problems of rela-
tions with the community, spon-
soring of local publicity, public
speaking, direct contacts with peo-
ple and dealing with social and
moral problems of the employees:
"The work in public relations
today is behind the scenes. The
storybook front office jobs are
few and far between," said Wood-

The University coed may have
spring in her soul, but the cold
and damp weather dictates that
she continue to wear her winter
clothes for a few more weeks.
The faithful winter dresses,
suits, sweaters and blouses have
given good service all season, but
when any indication of spring
presents itself they begin to ap-
pear dull and uninspired.
ALL THAT is needed is a small
touch of something new and
fresh to liven up the regular win-
ter wardrobe. The first step in
adding that note of freshness, is
to take a survey of the winter
wardrobe. A few minutes after
classes will be enough time to find
out just what is necessary.
For example, one dark dress
may require only a big bright
bow. Taffeta or velvet in mauve
might be the remedy, or for a
touch more of spring, there are
the polka dot patterns.
Bows may be tied around the
neck under a collar or with the
neckband of the same material
showing. Sometimes the bow may
be worn at the waist, on the side
or back. A draped neckpiece is al-
so effective at the neck or waist of
a dark dress.
* . *
neck of a dark dress is also a way
to add that extra touch. For the
youthful face a white gilet will
point out good coloring, while for
more mature feautres a soft col-
or is flattering. Melon, a peachy-
pink shade tinged with apricot is
the newest spring color.
An addition to the basic dark
dress is the apron , tunic worn
over a slim skirt. The material

usually used for this purpose is
a gaily printed fabric.
A few tassels or a touch of
braid to a suit or blouse may im-
prove its looks for midwinter wear.
* * *
FOR A one-button jacket or
coat, a high-style frog closing is
an up-to-the-minute touch. These
are shown in a good variety of
sizes, from a flat frog worked in
pinwheel fashion with dangling
tassels, to a very wide one of
black braid, its loops and whirls
extending 10 inches or more in
Pockets are very important in
the newest fashions. To accent
them for a new look, they may
be edged with some type of con-
trasting binding of velvet, braid
or a print. A newer idea is to
completely cover the pocket
with a contrasting fabric.
A dress with- no pockets can
soon be transformed into a pocket
dress with a little extra time and
energy. Big pockets of different
fabric, sewed on a bnd so that
they can be tied on to the dress,
wil provide removable pockets
which will be an asset to the
Another new touch can be ac-
quired by adding sprigs of simu-
lated flowers to a silk neckerchief,
or by tucking the stems inside a
pocket or pinning them to a
A necklace of baroque pearls or
heavy crackly beads istnew in the
LaTausca collection of spring
costume jewelry. Old necklaces

Overhauling the winter ward-
robe to add a new touch only takes
time and a little originality, and
the outcome is worth the trouble.
