Business Mirror 3 Secretaries' Day Honors 'Bosses' By SAM DAWSOX NEW YORK, June 2 ^—The real boss of many a business is to be honored come Wednesday. That is Secretaries Day. The secretary Is a rare and sought after person in many offices where there is a secretarial shortage—due in part to the short, baby crop of the depressed thirties which means fewer women in their late teens and early twenties now, and in part to the lure of other jobs in industry and Ihe competition from the greatly expanded government payroll. The National Secretaries Association has already named "Miss Best Adjusted Secretary of 1952"— Miss Doris Dean, 22, of Pittsfield, Mass., a doctor's right-hand gal. And it has also polled its 12.000 members around the country and come up with some satistics on what an average secretary looks like—how her physical attributes vary from section to section, and how they are shifting over the years. Some of it's fairly surprising. The mental equipment of secretaries also has been looking into jointly by Harvard's department of social relations and the Sound- Scribe r Corp. They report: the ideal one is a "happy, efficient, young woman who has successfully shortened the psychological distance between herself and her boss." Maker Comparison Johns Hopkins has made a fairly odious comparison between the mental work than men in a given time and do it more accurately, ^o which the chairman of the national secretaries week council, C. Kins Woodbridge, president of Dicta- pfione Corp., adds: "Secretaries of today are considered more intelligent than those of 1902." The Association's poll is quoted by Woodbridge as showing the average secretary is now five feet four and a half, against five feet three at the turn of the century: her shoes are closer to 7B than the 4B of yesteryear: and she-has a life expectancy at birth of 60 years, or 18 more than 50 years ago. Mure are Married The U. S. Census Bureau notes that there's a greater percentage of married women now than in 1940, and that today's bride is usually several years younger than News of Stocks Steel Situation Mixes Market J Baccalaureate Staged Sunday At Wood River NEW YORK, June 2 — #— The stock market turned mixed and quiel: today as a steel strike followed rapidly on the heels of the Supreme Court decision declaring government seizure of the steel mills illegal. Immediately after the court decision there was a quickening of activity in the market and steel stocks moved ahead. But many issues were backing a\vay from their highs of the day and activity was slowing even before the CIO steelworkers started leaving the mills. The volume ran around 1.200,000 shares, a bit better than the even million shares at the previous full session last Thursday. Prices were a fairly even mixture of gains and losses and most changes were fractions. U. S. Steel, Bethlehem and Republic each dropped a fraction after going ahead fractions on the heels of the court decision. The raidroad group, which was strong throughout the morning, slipped into the losing column. New York Central slipped a bit. Advances included Montgomery Ward, Anaconda, Kennecott and American Can. Among the declines were Studebaker, Goodrich, Zenith, Westinghouse, American Woolen, Standard Oil (NJ), and Philip Morris. U. S. government bonds were steady. Wheat Selling CHICAGO, June 2. UP) — Prospects that harvesting operations will expand rapidly over the next few weeks, plus receipt, of substantial moisture in Canada, brought, selling into wheat on the Board of Trade today. The market started lower and never rallied back to the previous close. Losses ran to more than 2 cents at times and the July contract sank to the lowest point since trading in it started many months ago. The other contracts held slightly above previous lows. Most other grains eased off In sympathy with the drop In wheat. Soybeans, however, held up quite well, responding to a firmer note in the bean oil market. Preliminary estiamled receipts nf grain in carlots: wheat 61, corn 330, oats 63, rye 20, barley 53 and soybeans 92. Bunker Hill BUNKER HILL — A fire broke out at the home of Charles Payne Memorial Day morning. The damage to the house was slight. The fire was caused by a faulty flue. A. H.

Richard Moulton, who has been stationed at Camp Gordon, Ga., since entering service in January, arrived home Thursday evening for a 15-day furlough. He will report back to Seattle, Wash. Mrs. John Johnson, Miss Reka Johnson, and Mrs. Kate Burgess, Dorsey, visited Friday with Mrs. Harry Cooper and Miss Laura Hilton. brides of pre-war days. And, like other women, secretaries marry younger these days, too. But the really fascinating statistics from the poll are those backed up by the research files of the Corset & Brassiere Association. According to these records: A Holland firm is selling a device that shells eggs, grinds beans, dries hair and cleans carpets.
