But, in gen cral, the more complex or technical the product, the higher paid and 'he more necessary for the salesman to have college training. I'm referring to a MANUFACTURER'S SALESMAN, employed by companies to primarily sell to other busi- businesses. WOMEN: Only about 10 per cent of manufacturers' salesmen are women; they most often work in the food industry. DISADVANTAGES: If the job requires much travel, it may become tedious after some years, particularly if you want to marry and have a family. lesses ' With the fast pace of some tra- This occupation is different ve ) schedules, you may be- from that of manufacturer's representatives. A manufacturer's representative is a self- employed agent who handles sales for one or more companies. Some experts think companies are showing renewed interest in obtaining lop salesmen as competition sharpens. This is in contrast to emphasis in recent years placed on recruiting good marketing men. Marketing is tlie total function of moving goods and services from producer to consumer; sales is a part of marketing. SCOPE: In addition to visiting prospective customers manufacturers' salesmen write sales reports, obtain credit evaluations, plan work schedules and itineraries, make appointments, develop prospect lists, write letters, make out expense accounts and read material on their products. Technically trained salesmen, usually called sales engineers, also help prospective buyers solve problems through use of their product. EARNINGS: Usually directly related to job performance. Many good salesmen earn between $10,000 and $15,000; the best make up to $25,000 and over. Most manufacturer's sales men work on a salary plus commission basis. ADVANCEMENT: Could ultimately be to lop management. Some salesmen make so much money they prefer to keep selling. They have good opporlu- Clemente Island.

OUTLOOK: Demand is expected lo continue strong, «specially in the technically trained fields such as those requiring knowledge of engineering, chemicals, Pharmaceuticals and office systems. An old adage says: a good salesman is never out of a job. * * * NEXT: TREASURY ENFORCEMENT AGENT * * * For addresses where you may write for more information on above occupation, send a stamped, self - addressed envelope marked MANUFACTURER'S "Career Corner," in care of this newspaper.

(AP) — The Southeast Missourian in Cape Girardeau published the names of 48 elcgible bachelors Thursday and told the single women of the area that now it it up to them "to run them down by whatever means, fair or foul." Emily Hughes, women's editor of the afternoon newspaper, compiled the list as "acommu- nity service." It includes the single man's name, address, occupation and age. The ages ranged from 20 to 39. Managing Editor John Blue said the newspaper published a similar list on Feb. 29, 1964. He said a few weeks ago the paper checked on the 1964 bachelors and found that "half had left town, six had married and six remained bachelors." Incunabula is the Latin term used to designate books printed before 1509. No Competition DURHAM, Maine (AP) Mrs. Constance Footman has been re-elected town clerk—and also treasurer, tax collector and constable by write-in. There were no formal candidates for the posts decided at the town meeting Saturday in this community of about 1,001 residents, and only one othef name was written in. Several Maine communities have officers serving in a number of positions. In the 160-person community of Vienna, Fritz Eaton, 84, was elected to his 62nd one-year term as town clerk. • IlllllllllllllliiUllllllinilllllinillllllllllllllllllllllimilllllllllll What's for Lunch?
