LSA Dean
Vilews CA
The Central Intelligence Agency
is presently recruiting high calibre
college graduates for its foreign
programs, James H. Robertson,
associate dean of the literary col-
lege, said.
Robertson, who recently re-
turned from Washington where
he met with top CIA officials, al-
so discussed intelligence work in
As personnel consultant for the
CIA at the University, Robertson
is in a position to counsel those
students interested in a possible
career and to help advise on the
effectiveness of the CIA training
No Illusions
"Many of those who apply have
illusions about the romance of
foreign espionage and overseas as-
signments. What the CIA is look-
ing for is the qualified, dedicated
young man or woman who is gen-
pinely interested in the hard work
needed to rise quickly to a re-
sponsible position in the agency,"
he said.
If an applicant shows intellec-
tual ability, deep sympathy for
democratic ideals, knowledge of
a foreign area and ability in its
language and a real desire to work
for the United States government
in its foreign affairs without pub-
lic prestige or tangible reward, he
may be eligible for membership
in the Junior Officer Training
Program, Robertson said.
Potential Specialists
The Junior Officers Training
Program is organized to select,
motivate, train, and appropriately
place young men and women who
have the potential to be outstand-
ing specialists or to develop as
senior officials of the Agency.
"The CIA is a very select group,
interested in the quality, not the
quantity of its staff. Each year
perhaps only one, two or three
students enter the agency from
this campus. Yet the . training
program for these few is exceed-
ingly good and does full justice to
the intellectual promise of the
candidates," Robertson said.
Arrange nterviews
If the University applicant
merits serious consideration for
the i training program, Robertson
will arrange an interview with an
agency representative who makes
periodic trips to the campus.
If a University applicant is ac-
cepted by the CIA, Robertson rare-
ly hears anything more about
him. "I try not to, for the nature
of the work of a Central Intelli-
gence officer is necessarily se-
cretive. Knowing more than I
need to can conceivably prejudice
the usefulness of his work," he
