Monday Evening, December 9, 1957. Josephine lowmon Gives Facts on Firm That Supplies Part-Time Help Plan Welcome For Owner of Grand Champ TERRE HAUTE (UP)-Officials today planned a big homecoming celebration for Mrs. Sue- Secondino, 19, West Terre Haute, who won the grand champion steer award at the International Livestock Show in Chicago lasit week. But Mrs. Secondino, her husband Pete, 23, and the steer "Honeymoon" could have used a welcoming committee Sunday night. Their small truck ran out of gas half a Ann Landers mile from home. Mrs. Secondino •said she will keep "Honeymoon" on the farm for a few days until the buyer de- Girl No Longer Interested After Seeing Boy's Photos Dear Ann: I hope you don't think I'm a wacko but here is my story.

It employs anyone over 18 who is competent. Women are probably more conscious of the shortage of help in the home than they are of the shortage of office lielp. Yet in the United States in 1957 there was a minus of 700,000 in this latter category. As a result of this need, a comparatively new concept in business has sprung up. I am speaking of the temporary help service. The large^ firm of this sort in existence started 10 years ago with one office. Today it has more than 100 in the United States and branches in Europe, Canada. South Africa and the Carribbean and is constantly expanding. As my readers know, I long have crusaded against the ridiculous age prejudices in the classified advertisements. There are many well-qualified women who need to work or want to work who are turned down because of their age. This seems especially stupid when these same women are so badly needed in the business world. .Ago No Consideration However, the firm of which I speak has no age prejudice at all, as yoti will see tomorrow when I bring you information straight, from the card files of one of its offices. It employs anyone over 18 who is competent. Age has r-othing to do with it. I think it will be interesting to many of you to know something about the activities of this form and the opportunities' for part time vrork. Here are some o.[ the things this organization does: It supplies business service (typists, .stenographers, secretaries and many types of workers) for manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, professional and service organizations. Its services are used by advertising agencies with deadlines to meet, banks with stock transfer work to be done and groups with conventions to be staffed and displays to be set up. Its regular customers keep their | usu;d staff as small as possible and call on this company in times of overload, rush and vacations. It demonstrates appliances ;md food products, makes surveys iind handles sampling regionally iind nationally. Moved Stores It has moved large stores, conducted telephone surveys to ells- cover women's reaction 'to cigar smoke, helped rebuild hurricane dcvasted towns, rushed aid to insurance companies which were swamped after such catastrophes, put laces in new shoes, helped Lib- crace play Santa Glaus by addressing and mailing 70,000 Christmas cards for him and counted snake skins (or a leather company.
