BLUEBOOK BLUES-Equipped with coffee pot and cigar, Bill
Cartright, '54, begins cramming for final exams but intends to
take a break long enough to attend the annual Union Bluebook
Ball from 9 p.m. to midnight Saturday in the Union Ballroom.

Preparing for the new year the
new initiates of Wyvern junior
women's honorary society recent-
ly held an election of officers.
Taking over the presidency of
the group will be Ann Plumton,
while Karen Fagerburg will take
over the duties of secretary and
Sue Alderman will hold the chair-
manship of projects.
4THE FIRST project of the new-
ly elected officers and Wyvern so-
ciety will be the presentation of

junction with the SL~ Cinema

tivities throughout the year to
earn money for a scholarship
fund.
FOR THE past two semesters
the society has also sponsored a
record concert including works
being studied by music literature
students so that they might study
the music without disturbing
others.
The history of Wyvern dates
back many years when only a
few coeds were enrolled at the
University.
The prime purpose of the or-
ganization was to look after in-
coming freshmen. Members serv-
ed as guides and answered ques-
tions. This job has been taken ov-
er by the Orientation Committee
under Mr. Ivan Parker and Wy-
vern is now a junior honorary so-
ciety.
IT'S NAME is taken from an old
Welsh word meaning "protectingj
dragon." The symbol for mem-

of a dragon curled around the let-
ter "W."

ship on scholarship, campus ac-
tivities, and leadership. This year
20 women were tapped.

By PAM SMITH
Fashion is a field where, with
their natural interest in clothes
and design, women can excel.
One of the many jobs available
in this field is that of a designer.
In order to be successful in this
type of work, women need good
taste, originality, imagination and
a keen sense of color.
* * *
THE successful designer must
also be practical and able to
adapt her ideas to stay within a
certain cost limit.
Since designing is such a high-
ly competitive field, the design-
er must be alert for new ideas
and quick to put these ideas
into execution.
Preparation for this type of work
does not entail much study and
usually four years or less in a
design schol are sufficient. How-
ever, the designer should have a
natural talent and good taste.
** *
THE DAILY ROUTINE of a
designer is varied and interesting
since a great deal of her time is
spent out looking for ideas.
Another advantage is the op-
portunity for travel. Head de-
signers usually have a chance to
go abroad, especially to Paris.
Since the demand is great, few
jobs offer larger financial returns
than designing.
* * *.
ANOTHER FIELD where wo-
men have been successful is buy-
ing for large stores.
This job involves the selec-
tion of merchandise, the making
and maintaining of mutually
profitable relations between the
manufacturer and the buyer,
and the knowledge of figures,
sales stocks and percentages of
mark-up.
A buyer needs style sense, bar-
gaining ability, self-confidence,
and a facility in handling people.
* * *
SHE MUST also kndw the parti-

cular thing that appeals to the'
public and then go out and get it.
Preparation for a buying posi-
tion is offered in schools of
business administration, but it
is often possible to work up from
a position as salesgirl.
A buyer's job offers good pay
and a career in ansinteresting
and constantly changing field.
ANOTHER FIELD where many
women have made successful ca-
reers for themselves is in fashion
retailing.
This is a strongly competitive
field and, in order to be success-
ful, women must have the right
training, personality and plan-
ning.
Other important requisites are
initiative, energy, good disposition,
competitive instincts, imagination
and ability to work without super-
vision.
* * *
WOMEN WHO have done well
in the field suggest that coeds in-
terested in entering fashion re-
tailing first learn how to sell.
Fashion retailers must know
which dress is right for which
woman, and which sales tech-
niques make the customer buy
those dresses.
Another suggestion is that pros-
pective retailers study such things
as fashion design and merchan-
dising, and acquaint themselves as
fully as possible with the business.
One of the most important in-
gredients in a successful shop is
a good bookkeeping system. This
will enable the retailer to tell how
much money goes out and how
much comes in.
Complete records will also show
advertising results and indicate
trends which are important in
buying and reordering.
In spite of the difficulties
found in this field, fashion retail-
ing offers a rewarding career for
the woman who has the necessary
requisites and wants to work for
herself.
