We're in the market for restless talent.
Your talent, if you'd enjoy helping us
continue a revolution we started some
years ago: changing the once-conser-
vative banking industry into a leading,
driving social force.
Today, the world of the modern New
York banker is one of innovation and
change. Of new concepts, new methods
and new ideas.
At Chemical Bank, in particular, you'll
find opportunity to make a contribu-
tion. Responsibility. Elbow-room for
rapid growth. Hard work, advancement
and reward commensurate with ability.
Right now, we're looking for young
people who want to live and work in the
New York metropolitan area, where
it's happening most. Who are commit-
ted, and burn to help make decisions
that change the face of today's world.
if you'd lie to learn more about our
kind of revolution-and how you can
join us-set up an interview. Our men
will be on campus:.

Jim Nabors of the Afro-Ameri-

Although it has been charged
that the strikers are increasing
the violence to try to bring more
police on the campus and thus
build more student support for
the strike, Jim Soliz, a leader of
the Mexican-American Student
Confederation, told a strike
meeting, "The issue is not 'pigs

Former Secretary of Health,
Education and Welfare Wilbur J.
Cohen has urged the federal gov-
ernment to grant financial aid
to school districts which m a k e
"reasonable efforts to elimin te
discriminatory practices but are
in fiscal difficulties."
Cohen, who will become dean
of the University's School of Ed-
ucationi on 'June 1 also said the
government should continue to
impose penalties under the Civil
Rights Act by withholding feder-
al funds to school districts which
refuse to eliminate segregation.

Cohen made his comments in a
weekend speech to the alumni
luncheon of the New York Uni-
versity Graduate School of Social
Work. He received the school's
1969 Alumni Achievement Award.
Cohen also said the nation's
"most depressing problem, is rac-
ial inequality and discrimination."
The anti-poverty program of
the Office of Economic Oppor-
tunity "ought to be broadened
and extended," he said. "It has
had about as much impact in re-
ducing poverty in the past three
years as bailing out an ocean liner
with a teaspoon."
Cohen, who left office when
President Nixon was inaugurated,
called for raising social security,
benefits, and "radical changes" In
the welfare system, including na-
tional standards of eligibility of
payments, and an increase of $1-
billion this year in federal educa-
tion aid.
