HARTFORD, Conn., July 7.
President Daniels, of the Aetna
Life Insurance company, today de
clared that "extemporaneous
blondes and bobbed haired girls"
have no place iu American busi
ness." The company recently issued a
mandate that no peroxide blondes
be employed, charging that they
are light headed, and in effect
urging the girls to drop artific
iality and return to normalcy.
"Natural Swedish blondes are all
right," be stated, "they are Indus
trious, faithful and studious." The
peroxide using blondes are under
a ban, accordsig to Daniels.
Daniels claims that 90 per cent
of all blondes and bobbed haired
girls are useless In business. "The
Ideal bus'ness woman," he says,
"has two years college education,
doeen't powder her nose, watch
the clock, use rogue, or smoke
cigarettes. Girls should dress
neatly and attractively. Long
