There's A Long, Long Trail of Figures In Hotel Accounting Says Horwath Official A. J. I'ndd. C.P.A.. who lectured to the economics classes on April 29 on hotel accounting and its part in making a suc cess fill business. The rocms department, according to Mr. Podd. makes up 40 to 50 per cent of the total income; food and beverage contribute -10 to 45 per cent, and valet, laundry, and similar service make up the balance. From 1932 to 1937, Mr. Podd observed. normal room occupancy was less than 50 per cent. Today, because the Army lias taken over many hotels, normal occu pancy in Loop lmtels has become evi dent for the first time and now runs be tween 80 and 82 per cent. Citing the Palmer I louse as an ex ample. Mr. Podd termed it a city in it self, almost .self-sufficient, and stated that the Empire Room was created, not for profit, but to popularize the hotel and to make il a center of life in the city. There are many opportunities for wo men executives in hotels today, accord ing to Mr. Podd. opportunities which will continue during the war and even after it in the reconstruction period and in peace time.

Degree Is Key To Victory Says Magna Cum Laude Alumnae Career Girl Georgette Thoss '39, who is now em ployed as Administrative Assistant in the office of the Custodian of Alien Prop erty, and who lectured to commerce stu dents on April 29, on the career ad vantages of a college education. Miss Thoss declared that, in order to be a successful administrator, one must pos sess three required elements of body, soul, and personality. The body for success comes from ma jor courses in economics, which include the principles of money and banking, accounting, filing, and statistics. The soul of success is achieved through courses in logic, ethics, and philosophy. One's religious background prompts one to do the right things in business. The personality is developed through extra- currieular activities of college life. Miss Thoss outlined the following formula for a successful career. With a diploma, extra curricular activities, so cial graces, religion, economics, and eth ics, one is certain to achieve vim, vigor, vitality, intelligence, initiative, charm, tact, obedience, respect, and youtlifulness. Once one has a DEGREE, VICTORY is sure to follow. i Page Three They've Got A Job To Do JULIA CASE . . . president of the senior class . . . mathematics major . . . finds Harry James and the Navy essen tial as college standby's . . . likes to travel . . . votes for orchids . . . thinks the wearing of college rings should lie a requirement for graduation . . . sports clothes her choice . . . spends many Sat urdays at meetings of the Illinois Col lege War Council . . . was Prom chair man in junior year . . . has a flair for organization and an unfailing smile . . . and RATES THE FRESHMEN AS PERFECT LITTLE SISTERS . . .

Special Citation To John S. Kennedy, who asks and an swers the question: What is a Catholic novel ? It is a novel which takes into account all the elements in the profound and ordered view of life which Catholic philosophy and theology present. It touches on the basic truth about hu man nature and human life, and gives them their whole meaning. It shows man as a moral being in a moral uni verse. Using A. J. Cronin's Keys of THE Kingdom as an illustration, Mr. Ken nedy considers the controversial opinions about this best seller and gives a chal lenge to future Catholic writers in a thought-provoking article in the April issue of THE SIGN. What's happening in the colleges? Are the liberal arts being pushed aside in favor of the new technical studies?

At home, according to Mr. Binsse, there will be only 40 per cent of the normal college enrollment, and this 40 per cent will be made up almost entirely of women. Read an intelligent discus sion of tomorrow in the colleges, in the April 30 issue of THE COMMON WEAL. Is there a common basis on which Frenchmen, whatever their personal opin ions, can unite today? The answer, a ringing one by a Frenchman, is in Jac ques Maritain's Open Letter to French men, an appeal to the French people to unite in the fight against Germany, an appeal lo them to reconcile themselves so that together they may rebuild their country in freedom. Mr. Maritain concludes his article with this plea: A philosopher's ideas may be of little interest for men of action. Nevertheless, wc all have duties to pub lic opinion. As a philosopher, eager to seek truth, in politics as well as in less contingent matters, but for that very- reason placed outside strictly political activities, I give you here this testimony of an independent Frenchman.
