Among the items on order for U. S. defense are 99 hostesses, to brighten the soldier's lot at 33 Army training camps.
The Army's new Morale Division (TIME, Sept. 30), already swamped by 600 applications, last week published its hostess specifications:
> Age: 30 to 50 (for senior hostesses); 25 to 45 (for juniors).
> Education & experience: high school or its equivalent; three years in a similar line of work for seniors, at least one year for juniors.
> Pay: $2,100 a year for seniors, $1,620 for juniors.
Hopeful soldiers, lightsome newsmen wondered out loud...
