By RUTH LKK (School Corresponded) Teachers, as well as other persons connected with formal education, have always suffered from the common fallacy labeled by sociologists EIS "stereotyping."

Being 24 and attractive Is not a requirement for a librarian, but as any high school youngster would say offhandedly, "It helps." In common with all good librarians, she has an excellent training background—one which includes a master's degree in library science from George Peabcdy College. As a college freshman, Miss Bos- fim attended Tennessee Polytechnic Institute at Cookeville, Tenn, aod completed her undergraduate education at the University of Tennessee where she received a bachelor of science degree with in sociology in the school of education. The librarian was born in Doyle a small Tennessee town a hundred miles east of Nashville, and graduated from White County Higl School (located In the foothills o the Smokies) In 1344. Becoming a librarian has been her ambition since she was a Jim ior in high school. Part ol her in Icrest in this field she attribute to her admiration for her hlg school librarian. Last year, she was high schoo librarian at Carthage, Tenn., an during 1948-1949 was librarian I Anderson County.
