Hobart Talks
On Work Open
To The, Women
"Teaching attracts yearly the larg-
est number of wopien graduates into
its field," says Mrs. Amy Hobart, as-
Iistant dean of women, who repre-
sented the University at the recent
Vocational and Personnel Conference
held in New York, and secured some
helpful information for women stu-
dents, who are deciding upon a fu-
ture vocation. The popularity of
teaching may be accounted for be-
cause of the practical and direct
methods of preparatory work in col-
lege, and the efficiency with which
positions may be obtained later.
At the conference, the question was
debated whether private secretarial.
work waseconsidered as a good en-
tering wedge to a clibsen vocation
other than teaching. Professions can-
not be immediately stepped into even
after graduation from college prepa-
ration, The most satisfactory way to
develop personal qualities essential to
the profession and to advance in the
right direction is to work as private
secketary to some one the chosen line
of work. The duties of a secretary
are interesting, and the feeling that a
certain ..mount of personal influencet
is wielded by her is a satisfaction and
Among other popular vocations
open to the college woman are library
work, both in cataloguing and circu-
lation; department store work, in-
cluding salesmanship at the first, and
later welfare work and buying; and
editorial work which is offering par-
ticular attraction in magazine and
feature writing. There is, perhaps,
chance for more sacrifice and hard
knocks in the newspaper and writing
vocation more than any other, f

fore leaving for California where they

An entertaining and varied pro-
gram was given last night as the
concluding number of the School of
Music faculty concert series by Jean-
nette Vander Velpen-Reaume, so-
prano, Marian Struble-Freeman, vio-
linist, and Table Ross-Rhead, pianist,
with Dwight Steere as accompanist.
Mrs. R"ead and Mrs. Freeman
opened the program with a Sonata
from Cesar Franck, a rendition show-
ing much talent. They were called
back three times, but did not give an
encore. The next number was an
Aria from "Mireille," a composition by
Gounod, rendered by Mrs. Reaume.
Mrs. Reaume has a pleasing soprano
voice, one of wide range, and of vol-
ume and expression. Her encore was
the "Laughing Song." Mrs. Rhead
proved herself an accomplished pian-
ist in her interpretations of Etudes
from Chopin. The final number of the
program was a group of four songs,
Do I Dove Thee. from Victor Kolar,
Pierrot of Johnston's, Lilacs, from
Rachmaninoff, and asmine Door, from
Scott, rendered by Mrs. Reaume.
