Women Must Be Superlative Workers By NBA Service —A woman has to be a better worker than a man to hold a •professional or industrial job today, Dr. Graham Bety, professor of psychology at Pomona College here, believes. Women have more problems than men in the business and professional field, he said. They not only have to excel in the job, but also have to do better in the field of human relations. Vocational adjustment is different for women than for men, he maintained. One difficulty a woman faces is the problem of social customs which presume a certain way of behayior> toward women. ^But there is no reason why a woman should not keep flowers on her desk," Bell said. "She doesn't have to act like a man to hold a position in today's business world. "She must understand, of course, the conventions of society and must provide for them in her behavior." Another problem for women workers is that men resent taking orders from women, he said. Therefore, the woman executive must learn how to give indirect orders and how to avoid giving any direct orders. "She must also get away from the feminine trait, into which she has been trained from childhood, of trying to make everything run smoothly and please everyone. There is no need to emphasize getting along with everyone all of the time." Professional women m u ? t temper justice with kindness but should not substitute kindness for justice, he said. He notes an increasing number of women participating in the working world because entry is easier and opportunities are greater, just as they are for men. Dr. Bell, chairman of the college's psychology department, urges professional women to recognize their responsibilities to set up programs to help younger women and high school and college students to know what careers and jobs they can hope to attain. Students particularly need guidance along this line, he said. Women must also assume the responsibility for their own continuing professional development, he said. Well-Groomed Woman Does Not Need Maid The woman who is so well- groomed that she looks as if she has a full-time maid undoubtedly does not. But she has other things. She has lovely nylon lingerie. She has a steam iron. She has miracle fabrics. She has springy wool and other fabrics that are wrinkle-resistant. She has nylon gloves and washable leather gloves. She has home permanents and excellent cosmetics and creams. So she really doesn't need a maid to look her very best every • day. Mind Your Manners He was a stranger in the Ann Landers After Two Marriages; She Wonders If All Men Are Rats BEAR ANN: I married too young (1?) and didn't know what it was all about. My husband and I f o u g h t like cats and dogs. Instead of trying to get to the bottom of the trouble and work things out, I divorced him. Two years Ann Landers. later I married a real devil. My first husband was a gem compared to this one. I couldn't figure out what was happening to my clothes. They kept discappear- ing. One day I found out he was selling them. When he broke my little boy's arm in a fit of temper I threw him out of the house and divorced him. Now my sons are 9 and 11 years of age. My first husband has always supported them and he never has missed a Sunday or a holiday to take them out. When he heard about me breaking up with my husband he asked me to remarry him, The kids are all for it, My mother says all men are rats. What do ' you say? MRS. UNDECIDED' Date your first husband for several months and get re-acquainted. If you get along well together, remarriage could be a good thing. P.S. Your mother is wrong. All men are NOT rats. Your second husband was a skunk. * * » DEAR ANN: The girl I love is now shopping for a wedding veil in which to marry another guy. I'm sure she doesn't love him but she doesn't have enough nerve to break the engagement. I went with this gal for two years and then we had a fight and broke up. I started to go with another girl and this one ups and gets herself engaged lo some pill she knew in high school. I've seen her three times this week (drove her to work, took 1 her to lundh and drove her home) and she says she's nutty over this fellow, but he is kind and considerate and they will have a good life together. I have a hunch her folks are pushing it because he is very $ub$stan- tial. Get it? WKat shall I do? BROKEN HEARTED BILL Here*s How To Launder Wash- And-Wears By KAY SHERWOOD NEA Staff Writer This summer, homemakers are going to find that a larger percentage of the laundry falls into the magical but confusing category of wash-and-wear. For a garment to qualify as a wash-and-wear item, there should be little ironing required, or at least much less ironing than for an ordinary garment. Laundering methods have something to do with how much ironing will be needed to satisfy personal standards. Another factor is the construction and tailoring of the garment. Laboratory tests in several instances have proved what many of us find out in our own utility rooms: a fabric may launder and dry superbly but the seams pucker and fray. Steam pressing with the iron on a'low temperature may help straighten out the puckers, but the fault may be with the tailoring. A cop's eye view of the teen-age trouble maker. Shotvs Law Enforcers Say Good Word for Delinquent Youth are made of synthetics such as dacron; orlon, the acrylics, ny- and combinations. Specially finished cottons are also widely used in such garments. Most new automatic washing machines now have a wash-and- wear setting. But suppose you don't have a new automatic machine? I was most interested when I learned that Frank Lindsay, supervisor of product testing laboratory for Maytag, was testing launde'ring methods for wash-and-wear wringer machines. His tests, made primarily with men's washable suits, slacks and white shirts, were recently completed. I went over the results with him. Judging from a series of unretouched photographs, it is possible to wash such garments and wear them with a minimum responsible for acts of vandalism, destruction and arson committed by their children. Police chiefs and other police officials who were convinced who has .that today's youth is different from yesterday's cited such factors as broken homes, working the cog on the beat has parents, a steadily increasing di- had to perform this unpleasant task.

You've made it plain you're available and if this girl were sufficiently interested, she'd give the other guy the air. There's nothing wrong with marrying a fellow who is "Substantial" (yeah, I get it) so long as he has the other qualities you mentioned. * • • DEAR ANN: I'm a man past 50 who has owned my own business for many years. Business has been bad and I may have to close up if I don't find a buyer. For the past 15 years my married daughter and her family have been living in a house I own. I never asked them tor rent. I paid all the taxes and even took care of the repairs and upkeep. Now that I'm in a bad financial spot I've asked them to please pay rent. They said as long as they have to pay, they'd rather move out and apply the money on a home of their own. I feel hurt about this. Do you think I've been a chump? UNAPPRECIATED Frankly—yes. Fifteen years of free rent, while you paid the taxes and upkeep? Such a "favor" undoubtedly produced feelings of contempt along with "gratitude." This is how acts of "kindness" can work in reverse. When you permit people to mooch (and mooching it was) you rob them of their self-respect. You were foolish to make such an offer, and they should never have accepted it. How true the words, "sharper than a serpent's tooth is the tongue of a thankless child." * * • Are your parents too strict?

Mrs, Young Hostess To Lot-A-Fun Club The Lot-A-Fun Club met Wednesday evening at the home of Mrs. Claude Young, 1122 Green St. Games were played with priz. He stresses the need for good laundering practices and points out that he applied principles developed over four years of testing automatic laundering to wringer-type washing. For best results, says Lindsay, clothes should be washed in COLD WATER, using a heavy duty liquid detergent (or dissolve granular detergent in milk bottle of hot water before adding to tub). Suits and shirts look smoother after drying in an automatic dryer, but line-dried garments are almost as attractive. After sorting clothes, pretreat spots and specific soiled areas such a£ neckbands and cuffs by rubbing in straight detergent solution. est FBI figures, persons under 21 accounted for nearly 20 per cent of all serious crimes committed in the country. They accounted for 34,974 burglaries (twice as many as in 1950), 23,472 auto thefts (three times as many as in 1950) and 63,993 larcenies (four times as many). The FBI further reports that 16,245 teen-agers were arrested in 1957 for liquor law violations, a shocking jump from 1,330 in 1950, and more than 5,000 were arrested for carrying a weapon, compared with 1,762 in 1950. Because of this disturbing increase in juvenile crime in recent years, we called on a number of police officials across the country to give their views on the current crop of teen-agers. Are they different from the boys and girls of say 10 or .15 years ago? Why is crime on" the in- .crease within their ranks? Has someone or something failed them somewhere along the line and so early in life? They're Different Our police survey, in a way, represented simple justice. Several months ago we asked the teen-agers of the country what' they thought of cops' An overwhelming 92 per cent said they respected the policeman, but only 7 percent said they wanted his job. Now it seemed only fair to find out what the men in the blue uniforms thought of the Pretreating is important, par- toys and ? ir ' s ln blue jeans ticularly so for the cold-water- method with wash-and-wear. Lindsay also pointed out that dacron has an affinity for oily, greasy soil which actually penetrates the fibers. You may have to use a commercial spot remover to erase such oil spots. Fill washer with cold water. In nonporous synthetic fibers, general soil stays on the surface* or between the fibers and cold water will wash it out. The advantage of using coid water is that it doesn't soften the fibers and "set" wrinkles. Add liquid detergent and a water softener or water conditioner. Don't overload the washer. Stagger the wash load, advises Lindsay, and keep close watch on the agitation time. Between two and five minutes is adequate. Next, put garments through the wringer as you do any other clothing. From the tests it apparently made little difference in the final appearance of the fabric whether items «such as pants were put through a wringer carefully or carelessly. Rinse well, at least twice in cold water, and wring To the final rinse water add a fabric conditioner which makes for smoother fabrics and a minimum of static electricity. Dry in a dryer on a medium to low setting or hang up to dry. Because wash-and-wear clothing tends to be slow to soil, we don't always wash it as often as we should to keep the fabric in top 'condition. Another thing' to watch IB white nylon. Nylon is a dye scavenger and white nylon has been known to pull dye from white cottons previously washed with colored clothing, Lindsay says. Wash white nylon by itself.

The ability to learn names quickly is a social asset. And it is often a business asset, too. They're different than they used to be, answered 62.5 percent of the officials we contacted. . "The main difference," said Capt. Clifford G. Bailey 'of the Crime Prevention Bureau of Minneapolis, "lies in spciety itself and the different values, mores and morals. Much of the actions of today's youth are based upon their interpretation ot our own standards and values." Col. O. D. Carton, Chief of Police of Richmond, Va., saw the difference as the result of "educational opportunities, general social trends; worldwide unrest, more money to spend, more freedom and lack of discipline and guidance. While advanced educational and other opportunities today might produce a more intelligent, stable, self-reliant youth, there are negative factors which contribute to delinquency." Even the 37.5 percent who thought thai today's youth had NOT changed very much recognized changes ,in society and the world around us. They also put much of the blame for juvenile crime squarely on the shoulders o( the parents. Said Lt. R P. Racine, commanding officer of the Norfolk, Va., Youth Bureau, "I don't think the youngsters of today are any different than they were 10, 15, 25 or even 50 years ago, I do think their values have, changed, because we adults have given them poorer standards and we have proven poor guides." Bryson M. Turner, Chief of Police in Royersford, Pa., said he was far 'more concerned about the "delinquency of parents" than about that of their children and thought that par* erits should "be arrested for not keeping their children under control." More Chore* Many of the police officials contacted favored laws, already in existence in some states but put it, "to think that somehow a teen-aged murderer doesn't leave his victim quite as dead as a hardened criminal." Some of the chiefs thought that nothing would be better for today's youth than a revival of '.'chore time" around the house and farm, or house and garage in the case of city kids. They saw mounting juvenile delinquency as the product of greater leisure time multiplied by more money and aimless "hanging around." Teen-agers now, they felt; have more time and more know how but less responsibility than in an earlier day. Gone are the times when children were given tasks commensurate with their years and abilities to develop both mind and muscle and a sense of duty. Many teen-agers today, the chiefs complained, do not see themselves as part of the family, with a two-way avenue of privileges and- responsibilities. Mom and Dad are more or less proprietors of a 'very exclusive club devoted solely to the pleasure and whims of their children, who are in no way obligated to help out. Lt. Lee H. Ballard, assistant superintendent of the Louisville, Ky., Crime Prevention Bureau, termed this modern youthful, trend "worklessness." Boys and girls from good, bad and indifferent homes became juvenile delinquents because they have "no chores to do, no responsibilities to assume, nothing to burn and absorb their energies in a constructive manner where the family fs concerned." Super Market is Ideal Place to Observe Sloppy Women By ALICIA HART NBA Beau.ty Editor A SUPERMARKET is a fine place to observe other women. For some reason, most women seem to feel that a supermarket is out of bounds in the matter of looking well - groomed. .Either that or they feel invisible once they enter its doors. So anything goes. Pin curls, no make-up, head scarves, blue jeans, slacks worn with high heels. In a country where women have the best cosmetics and the most imaginative fashions to pick from, it's a pity to pass them by. •* It's done, of course, because women feel that it doesn't matter how they look In front of family or in a supermarket. But it does. It matters not only for others but for one's own self respect To be seen looking frumpish and dowdy in public or in front of people dear to one is equal to saying: "I don't care what you think of me, and worse, I think nothing of myself."

Wives Who Are Always Sensible Bore Husbands By RUTH MILLETT You'd think from most of the marriage advice being written today that if a woman always acted like a sensible human being her marriage couldn't fail. Fortunately, although women feel compelled to read such advice, few of them believe it. It's lucky they don't, because nothing would be more boring to the average man than a completely sensible woman. How can a man feel superior If his wife never indulges in feminine whims and inconsistencies? How can a man escape from a woman who wants to talk sensibly about problems that only seem bigger the more they art discussed? If she loses her temper and tells him off he at least has the satisfaction of either slamming out of the house or giving her a piece of his mind in return. And wouldn't it be an awful letdown for a man to have a wife who never showed the faintest signs of jealousy? After all, her jealousy is the most reassuring sign he has that she still considers him a prize catch. And when men get to talking •—•as they often do about tht silly things women do—would it be any fun for a man to have to sit silent because his sensible wife hasn't provided him with any you - never - know - what-a- woman-is-going-to-do-next anecdotes? The little surprises women arc always springing on their husbands, simply because women aren't strictly sensible according to the masculine viewpoint, are the very things 'that keep married life from growing dull. So read all the articles you like that urge you to be sensiblt about your marriage and its problems. But for heaven's sake, don't be too sensible. A little feminine frivolity adds spice to any marriage. 8-Ball Club Guest Of Mrs. Edwards Mrs. Otto Edwards was hos. tess to members of the 8-Ball Club Wednesday afternoon in her home at 409 Lamport St. Pot|uck luncheon was served at noon.
