COWAN BLDG SUPPLY 210 East State St. Burt — A Baltimore paper, the Sunday Sun, of recent date, features an interview with Otto Kraushaar, a former Burt teacher and son-in-law of the late Mr. and Mrs. O. P. McDonald. This is a full page write up, including two pictures. One is of Dr. Kraushaar and a large number students. The main task facing Dr. Otto Kraushaar is how to resolve the basic dilemma faced by women trying to succeed in business and the profession. President of Goucher college, he says "It's a man's world" even in the day of the "emancipated" woman, and to illustrate he quoted the phrase, "Brace up and be a man," which brings up vividly the universal and fundamental feeling that it is a fine thing to be a man. He goes on to say it is a fine thing to be a woman, too, but the admonition to be a man has been so laden with virtue, from time immemorial, that it becomes less desirable and possibly inferior to be a woman in such a man's world. He says, take for example, a single woman and a bachelor doing the same work, getting the same pay, and of about the same ability. The woman, because of the instincts of her sex, performs two jobs really. She does the laundry, her mending, takes care of her personal grooming and no doubt cooks two meals, while the man eats in a restaurant, sends his laundry out, the tailor does his mending and his personal grooming demands little more than a daily shave and a fortnightly trip to the barber. Now this leaves him free to put more effort into his joy and all things being equal, he has a good .chance to outdistance her in earning power and promotions." Dr. Kraushaar taught in Burt. The classes of '25 and '26 should remember him. 'Though he is now a college president and a professor of philosophy, he does not forget that he worked at many tasks to pay his way through the University of Iowa and Harvard. He was born at Clinton, Iowa, of poor parents and the youngest of ten children, so his early life taught him not to expect to go through college with ease, and the article has this to say about him: "Today, at 48, he is deliberate and quiet, with STOP I OONT TAKE CHANCES WITH YOUR PRECIOUS FURS Let Modern Cleaners preserve the beauty and life of your precious furs by storing them in scientific cold stor- siorage vaults.

Assured and easy in manner, he mijjht be regarded as a lawyer in his middle 30's. His favorite food, steaks and French fries with sliced tomatoes. "He likes to fish, but on a fishing trip to Clearwater Lake, Wis., last summer, his wife caught all the fish instead. Dr. Kraushaar was at Smith 15 years before taking over the presidency of Goucher in 1948. Goucher is spending $3,000,000 on its building and will'spend that -, much more.
