5 Saturday, September 16,1944 Che gaftcrrfitft Californian SHARING H.v MAK This is a little piece entitled ".Why Women Don't Cot .\hejid in Life" or "Why Men Snc.-eed." A woman's life is constantly complicated by a number "f tilings that men never have t» consider, only objectively. What a. man sees is a nice-looking girl, neatly groomed who comes to work nnd does hoi- job. But ho is unconscious of all her woes tlmt slio carefully conceals in accepting the challenge to meet men on their own 'ground in the business world. Waking up in thfj morning and following the simple toiletries, she gets herself to work, but as she concentiates on her job, here are all (lie liltlo harries of her life, little nagging wn-ifs th:it pester her 'lays and bring her nightmares at ni.uhl. Thoughts of a working girl. "I furi:"t In put tlic ciillar on inv dipss. "Is my sliji showing*? Are the stains i.>C my stockings straight'.' Did 1 got my lipstick on straight? ]s my hair coming out of curl? Arc my heels getting run down? Should I wear high heels and look smart nnd ruin my health or wear low heels that make my ankles look- thick and no one will care about the state of my health. "Summertimo—Shall I shampoo my hair today, or wait until tomorrow been use I want to go swimming today? Wintertime—Will it rain today and will my hair be down by noon? Will my garter slip ami my stocking fall down'.' Is SAl'XDERS | that pesky strap on my brassiere I going to break HJEHin. There, goes ! my ear-ring failing off again. | Xowy, there goes a pair of beads, i broken all over the office floor. | Here J am eating candy again and i getting too fat. "Hitting the typewriter keys too I hard chips my nails, but the boss likes the lines heavy and black. Shaking my head, two bobby pins fly out. There goes a button off my blouse. By noon my dress will be so wrinkled I won't look halfway respectable to lunch uptown with a friend. There goes a lock of hair down the back of my neck. "Did I put my make-up in my purse? Must he in my othe.- purse. I can't gu out without powdering my nose. My purse is full of stuff and it takes hours to locate anything in it. Why can't we have pockets in our clothes like men do'. 1 "Do I have a clean blouse to wear tomorrow? Will I have to press my skirt or did 1 remember to do it when I took it off last time? Will 1 be. able to get that $15.98 dress or the $32.50 one? Can I make over last year's dress, and sink the difference in a swell bag and hat? What shall I wear on that date tonight?" Typically feminine worries, all these. Yes, indeed, how simple is the life of the male. Just a suit, shirt, ties, pair of shoes and socks with nary a care on the job. No Wonder men get ahead and women get chipped fingernails. UllW. PLANSCOMPLETE FINAL COMMITTEES NAMED AT MEETING NIGHT WELDING CLASSES SLATED OXY-ACETELENE, ARC TYPES TO BE TAUGHT In order to help meet local needs for combination oxy-acetelene and electric arc welders, training in both I of these types of welding is now available in the welding course of the war training program offered for adults by Bakersfield Evening High School and Junior College. Following a recent ruling by the United States Office of Education, previous restrictions on teaching oxy- acetelene welding in the .same course •with electric arc welding have been relaxed and the local war training welding course has been authorized to include both oxy-acptelene and electric arc welding, it was announced by John VanOsdel, co-ordin- ator of war training courses for the Kern County High School district. The change permitting both oxy- acetelene welding and electric arc welding to be taught in the. same- course was brought about partly by the efforts of Karl Kellar, special state welding supervisor, state department of education, and through the requests of representative of the oil industry und local firms needing the service oC combination welders. It was explained that previously welding training was concentrated on electric arc welding in order to provide trained workers needed for war production in shipyards. Relaxation of the regulations requiring concentration of training on a single phase of welding, included in the provisions of Public Law 135, will result in local'business organizations receiving a greater number of welders trained in both oxy-acete- lene and electric welding, Mr. Van- Osdel stated. A number of welders already have expressed the desire for training in both types of welding. One of Best Equipped Shops Acclaimed one of the best-equipped welding shops of any school in the state, there are -1 oxy-acetelene gas stations in addition to 17 electric arc welding machines, four of which were received last summer. Designed to be as practical as possible, the course will provide instruction in the type of welding required in oil companies, railroads and in machine shops as well as in shipyards, Mr. VanOsdel reported. Flat, overhead and vertical welding niques are stressed. Taught by Dale Alexander, has had considerable practical experience for years as a welder, the course is given without charge. Local men and women are invited to enroll, even though they have not had previous welding training. The course is held Monday's through Fridays from (i p. m. to midnight. Attendance may bo adjusted at the pleasure of the Individual adult. Class Open Local men und women Interested in obtaining further information re garding the welding course are invited by school officials to visit the welding class, held in the mechanical arts building on F street next to the Santa Fe tracks, or by calling Mr. VanOsdel at the high school between 8 a. m. and 5 p. m. The number is 9-9841. tech- who COMPLETES tOlKSE Flight Officer Louis Ue A nda. son of Mr. and Mrs. Celso >>'.

O'Neal pioneered for other blind workers by being the first near-blind person hired at Charles Bailey, Inc., shipyards in San Francisco and also the first hired at Hopper's Machine Works, fnc., in this city. Air. O'Neal, machinist by trade, was employed by contractors as operator of heavy equipment before alkali poisoning seriously damaged his sight nine years ago. Due to his impaired vision he was unable to secure a position until 1943 when he was sent on "trial" to the shipyard In San Francisco. He was hired on a steady basis two days later and worked there until his health forced him to move to a warmer climate. He has been employed on the assembly line at Hoppers for the past five months. According to his foreman, Waldo Mason, Mr. O'Neal's work is excellent. On the assembly line Mr. O'Neal not only keeps up with other workers but is sometimes an example for them.
