Choral Groups
To BeJudged
Twenty-five women's choruses
will participate in Lantern Night
eliminations to be held from 7 to
10 p.m. today in Hill Auditorium.
Twelve out of the twenty-five
choral groups will be selected to
take part in the. 38th annual Lan-
tern Night program, which will
begin at 7:30 p.m. Monday in Hill
Auditorium.
JUDGES for eliminations will be
Miss Thelma Lewis, Associate Pro-
fessor of Voice, Harold Haugh, As-
sociate Professor of Voice, and
Maynard Klein, Associate Profes-
sor of Choral Music and director
of University Choirs.
The fundamental qualities
which the judges will be using
as basis for selections are inter-
pretation and artistic effect, in-
tonation, accuracy, rhythm,
tone, diction and presentation
and appearance.
Each category is allowed 10
points, and the winners will be
selected according to their accu-
mulation of points.

Education, will serve as judges for
the posture cup.
Barbara Buschman, who is in
charge of song leaders, has asked
that all groups be present 15 min-
utes before they are scheduled to
sing.
Tendency T0 Decrease
Use of Perfume Today
Perfume has been a woman's
trademark for centuries, but be-
cause of its high price and errors
in its use, women of today have
had a tendency to forget perfume
as an accessory to their ensemble.
Dram sizes may be purchased if
the buyer rebels at paying for
beautiful bottles when she is really
buying the contents.
A women's magazine has recent-
ly stated that perfume must be-
long to the wearer. Personal taste
is important in the selection of
perfumes.
To Your Advantage
College women specially trained for es-

By LORRAINE BUTLER
Women are set to become im-t
pressive salesmen of household'
consumer goods, says Walter L.
Stickel, national sales manager for
a well-known television firm.
Mr. Stickel states that the
shortage of manpower will pro-
vide opportunity for women to put
their feet in the retail selling door.
He also says that innate ability
as salesmen will keep women in
the field, manpower shortage or
not.
* * *
THE REASON that the trend
did not begin with the last war
is very obvious, Mr. Stickel says.
"The last war couldn't start the
trend, because consumer goods
like refrigerators and radios start-
ed disappearing about the same
time manpower did."
However, Mr. Stickel explains
that the situation is different
this time. He says that the
government is draining the
manpower supply, but allowing
consumer goods to continue.
The sales manager says that
lady salesmen are a wonderful
idea, especially f o r household
goods bought largely by women.
* * *
ACCORDING TO Mr. Stickel's
theory, women can interest a cus-
tomer faster than a man and there
is less psychological resistance to
women salesmen.
"A woman is not branded with
the pressure sales tactics asso-
ciated with male salesmen," Mr.
Stickel explains.
The television sales manager
admits that on the technical op-

eration of something like a tele-
vision set, people are more inclin-
ed to take a man's word as reliable
information than they are a wo-
man's word.
* * *
HOWEVER, Mr. Stickel says
that once a-man picks a brand,
it is the woman who decides on
the actual set.
"Women understand t h a t
around the house simplicity of
operation is necessary for any-
thing from a television set to a
refrigerator. Therefore, they
will sell that point to a woman
customer," Mr. Stickel insists.
He admits, however, that there
is one drawback to women sates-
men, but he says it is only tem-
porary. This is that women do
not get the customer signed on
the dotted line as fast as men do.
* * *
MR. STICKEL says that train-
ing will cure this one fault and
that women have other advantag-
es over men which training can-
not cure.
One advantage women have as
door-to-door salesmen is the fact
that it is easier for a woman to
get into a home, either daytime
or evening.
Mr. Stickel adds that he likes
women salesmen with "maturity
and responsibilities."
