"Three doorways exist through which women may enter the busi ness world — office work, selling, and teaching-” Miss Smith said, “and after a girl finds one of these doorways, jobs are- numerous.” In looking for a worker, an em ployer asks, first of all, if the ap plicant has ranked above the av erage in school work, Miss Smith said, and also if she maintained interest in campus activities. An other very important requirement, according to Miss Smith, is that the applicant be thoroughly inter ested in the work at hand. Earn ing one’s wray through school, at least in part, was also cited as a qualifying factor. A satisfactory solution has not yet been found to the problem of finding one’s most suitable career, according to Miss Smi^i.

Acting Dean Orlando Hollis of the law school will be “Hizzoner” for the evening. Tonight’s trial concerns the case of one Arthur Barnett who drove off in the “wrong” car — Robert Miller’s blue Ford coupe.
