IIL Phont 1044 WOMEN TODAY BY DOHOTHY BOS Associeted Preee Women's Bdltor POINllNO OUT THAT WL- JLARS arc a ^rl's best.friend, U. S. banks, brokerage liouses and life insurance companies are making a concerted drive to teacti American women tlie ABC's of finance. For tiie last couple of years banks all around tlie country have been fiolding finance forums for women, wooing tlie business of the community's housewives. These fonuna have been tagged with such provocative slogans as 'To the ladies" and "For women only". Their purpose has been to teach the girls how to take their money out of the sugar bowl and invest It in stocks, bonds or mort gages. • • • • NOW THE GENERAL FEDERATION OF WOMEN'S CLUBS an nounces the cooperation of the three most important financial groups in the country in a program to teach women that the business of handling dollars is only a matter of common sense. These three foresighted groups are the Association of Stock Exchange Firms, the American Bankers Association and the Institute of Life Insurance. It seems that the big boys of finance suddenly discovered that the little woman holds the purse strings on a major share of the nation's wealth, does most of the purchasing and is a potential customer too long^neglected. I RESPECTIVELY SUBMIT to the nation's titans of finance a simple and foolproof way to get Mrs. U. S. A. and her daughters fighting their way into banks and brokerage offices to invest the contents of their piggy banks. If the brokerage boys really want to get a slice of the feminine spending budget, why don't they advertise "today's special in genuine blue chip stocks^* or "bargains in gilt-edged bonds." They might even borrow a page from the book of cosmetics manufacturers and prepare some alluring four-color full-page ads showing a beautiful girl and a handsome guy in a clinch, with the tagline— "She has those irresistible bonds." What the finance business needs is to acquire the common touch, come down out of its ivory tower and admit that shopping for stocks and bonds really works on the same principle as selecting the best buys for the family market basket.
