The State Department has gone its own way'in all directions, appeasing and denouncing, attacking and withdrawing, Our government went its own way without consulting its Pan-American neighbors. Being incomparably stronger than other Western Hemisphere nations, it was vulnerable to suspicions of "Yankee imperialism." Lacking Pan- American support, it succeeded only in arousing a united feeling of national pride in Argentina, and thus helping Colonel Peron toward the presidency. There still remains considerable danger of unilateral strife within the United Nations; of opposition for opposition's sake between Russia on the one hand and an Anglo-American team on the oilier.

(NEA^ —Are yon a discharged veteran with a suppressed desire to go into business for yourself and unable to make "P >'°» r mind whether to open a beauty shop or run a sa\v- mill? If you are, Henry Walla's Department of Commerce may help you. Commerce has a whole .serifs of booklets, in fact, giving advice on how to establish ami operate a" kinds of shops—bake shop, .shoe- repair shop, or . just plain grocery store or filling station. It was the War Department's Information and Education division— formerly the Morale Services thai started all this, somebody got the idea that it would keep up thi; spirits of the troops if they ha'.! series of booklets to help them plan for their futures after they Sol out of the Army. You can just picture how it would be—some five-star hero on Okinawa, sweating it, out and trying to forget the war by studying how to run a beauty .shop or sawmill. The books arc really educational. The beauty book, for inslance, says that the first machine for permanent waving was invented in 1B10. Tills Invention no doubt ranks in importance right along with Eli Whitney's cotton-gin, the XlcCor- mlck reaper, the Selden patents. the Wright brothers' flying machine, and the atomic bomb amon^ the principal causes of the induf,- trial revolution and America's winning the war. AMERICAN SAWM1I.I,S DATE BACK TO 1625 Historically, though, sawniillin.; is the older and prouder profession, the first sawmill In America having been opened at Jamestown in 1625. Beauty shop.s were few i;i number and didn't really yet 1:0- ing till 300 years later, because u;i to the 192G'.s most sclf-respcctiM 1 : women shampooed their own h;m- at home. Not until the first flappers ran their crowning through a sawmill or somethin:. to bob it, did beauty culture rrenc Into il,s own, via, of all places, tlic barber shop. To make up for this laic star; and lack of class, the beauty shop business Is now trying to chnn-jr.- its name to "cosmetology." anU beauty shop operators call themselves "licensed cosmclolnuist:.." The word "beautician" is apparently out. probably because it rhymo-- with "mortician." But the higtu >; practitioner of the sawmillin;; a,-i Is still called "the boss savycv." and a proud lot they are. too, wilh all their traditions of Paul liir.i- yan. There's apparently a lot incur; room in the cosmetology business than In sawmlllology, though. The- 1939 census reported 8M19 bcairy shops. But today, says the ollvr book, "the zing and bus of mnr.- than 30,000 sawmills are hcarc! our forests." Thai other loud nni^c- you hear Is the zing and bu:^ .if 30 million female tongues. .s'.vi\p]>n: : ; the latest Rosstp at Mmc. clarir.:.e'.s cosmetology parlor. THE TWO BUSINESSES IIAVK MUCH IN COMMON In a lot of other ways the t-.vo businesses have much in c<->in;ni':i. Holh books say you should skill aim experience. You have M knnw your machinery.

' The best practical advice for would-b e beauty shop operators seems to be in the chapters on building up good customer" relations. "Make certain that no one in your shop becomes too familiar with your patrons," says the book. "Many seriously object to being called 'honey or 'dearie'." Better stick to snwinilling, buddy. U. S.
