"There is much competition in almost every career. This is especially
true
when women take positions formerly held only by men. But there is satisfac-
tion in competing with men as well as with other women. I say 'Don't be
afraid. Go out and try new things. If you set out and want to do something,
the chances are you can do it.' "

possibilities. By consistently helping intelligent women to advanced degrees,
by achieving a lot on her own, by serving as a model and an inspiration,
Gladys L. Borchers has helped innumerable women concretely and effec-
tively.
