L. F. MILLS Woman Executive MRS. EMERY A. GEDEON Works F»r A Woman Would You Trade Places With Boss? By MARY LOU LOPER All right, you're not! But what if you WERE boss? Would you institute a three- day work week, burn up the files, take a two-hour lunch "hour." have the telephone disconnected, disconnected, wear shorts to the office? Ah! Twould be fun! In fact, it WOULD be fun, wouldn't it! That's from an employe's fanciful viewpoint, of course! But what about the boss- man? Maybe he has his whims, too. What if he were the employe? How would he run things? We'll provide "the magic carpet" so that they can float off on a cloud — vent their opinions in the atmosphere: Seven employers tell how they'd behave if they were em- ployes, seven employes, if they were employers. It's just for fun! * * * IF HE WERE his secretary (Mrs. Harry C. Rittenhouse), James W. Cfeasman, executive secretary of the alumni association association at Arizona State University says: "I'll use th^ gem I have as a model. Nobody could be better! "However, I might revise the files slightly — for example, I don't think all letters should be under L. "I would also always graciously graciously allow the boss to read all size 5,7, or 9's LOVE the House of Nine... why should you be different? HOUSE OF NINE the morning mail over my shoulder and open interesting looking envelopes. I would make sure nobody else in the office knew my filing system, since this would give me tenure. And I'd gladly handle the Community Community Chest, Red Cross drives, and Rotary business — all things for which my boss gets the credit!" HIS GOOD-HUMORED Girl Friday is just as facetious in what she'd do if she were boss: "I would institute an annual File 13 Day," says Mrs.' Rittenhouse, Rittenhouse, "so that old correspondence correspondence could b« thrown away." She would also remember to clean her desk daily, use something something besides the top of her desk as a filing system, inform inform her secretary when she was leaving, never start a iwo-hour project later than one lour before quitting time.

MILLS: Westward Westward Ho hotelman. "If I were secretary, I'd see to it that my boss could find a file on weekends without calling me at home. I'd certainly like more days off, because they work too long hours." His top-notch private secretary, secretary, Ruth V. Gillespie, would have a hey-dey trading jobs with Mr. Mills: "I would be sure to take Saturdays off tad always play golf. I'm sure every boss needs that kind of relaxation. * would try to listen to my secretary a little when she is trying to crowd a little rest period into a full appointment appointment schedule, rather than trying trying 'to see all of the city' in one day'" * • * A CHEMIST and his technician technician discuss job trades. Boss Paul Wible, Motorola chemist, says: "Everyone the the employe mostly — should develop the ability to follow orders and also to think for himself. himself. Punctuality, efficiency, accuracy accuracy are all important, too. "The employe should also be able to anticipate trouble before before it happens — decide which way the wind will blow. Dependability Dependability is especially important. You must be able to rely on information you get from your technician. False information isn't worth anything." His chemical technician, Mrs. W. L. (Ruby) Walt, wouldn't have her^ boss's job! "I'm very happy. I wouldn't change to any other position in the plant. The only complaint I have is that for a like job, women in Arizona are not paid a like salary. A man with the same rating I have gets more money, and I think that's unfair. unfair. "So, if I were boss, I wouldn't differentiate between men and women regarding pay scales." * *• • BOSS BEN PROJAN, preti- dent of Hanny'i, likes a combination combination of qualities — secretary, secretary, public relations counsel, nurse — all of which he has in his Girl Friday, Miss Mary Clancy. "Were I secretary, I would try to relieve my boss of at many details as I could, would try to shield him from unnecessary interruptions and meaningless callers without making anyone mad at him or the company. I would try to be pleasant to everyone, because I know the importance of good public relations. "I would learn his moods and know when to make conversation conversation and when to be silent. When he is grouchy I would try to be patient and under- Handing. When he's cheerful, I would let him see that I notice it. "When taking dictation I would try to turn out faultless letters, knowing that careless correspondence reflects on the writer. I would not attempt to Improve on his phrasing, because because every man has his own personalized style of writing. "I'd watch his appointments carefully, avoid accepting conflicting conflicting dates. I'd see that his doctor's pills were at his desk at the prescribed time." Impossible? No, he says, and voves it with Miss Clancy is ' •• i '••' "n ; -ie'» been ,ii» day," she says if .she were boss. "I would realize that busses run on an indifferent schedule in the morning, but hold to a strict time table in the evening —even if my office doesn't. "When going out of town for several weeks, I'd tell her to use her own judgment about how much time she should stay close to the office, and would suggest that she conserve her energy. "I would remember the extra hours she had worked during peak periods, and suggest that she take a long lunch hour and see a movie following these rush times. "I would know that the pressures pressures of her other duties cause her to forget to remind me of an important meeting, and would tell her it was no inconvenience to me. "A boss should remember that girls are only human- more so than men. My boss has always recognized that fact!" WOMEN BOSSES usually take some joshing. But Mrs. Emery A. (Mary) Gedeon, an interviewer interviewer who works for Mrs. L. F. (Thelma) Mills, co-owner of an employment agency, says she has "no complaint" about working for a woman. Three of her bosses over a long career have been women. Were she boss, though, she says the most important undertaking undertaking for her would be setting a table of harmony — ".being able to sit down and discuss operational programs, making the staff think they are a part of it and that their responsibility responsibility to it is important to success. success. "With this type of human relations, relations, you get co-ordination and a real fine working team." BOSS-LADY Mrs. Mills puts herself in the position of the employe: "First thing that I would do is learn as much as possible about my employer's business.

I would be loyal. When I found that I could no longer be loyal to my employer, I would look for something else. I would hope at all times to maintain a good-work attitude. "I would be pleasant, try to keep my sense of humor, and be adaptable — adapting myself myself to my employer's wishes and to his business, and to the way that he wishes to run it. I would develop an awareness or sensitivity of the thing he was trying to do, so that we could work as partners." * * * JOHN E. ROYALL is the vice president (First National Bank) and Mrs. Fred G.
