Where do they go? Out.
What do they do? Work.
That's the story of hundreds of
seniors and graduate students as
seen by Evart W. Ardis, director
of the Bureau of Appointments
and Occupational Information,
every year. The Bureau embodies
th, University's job placement and
career counseling services.
In the Bureau's recent annual
report Ardis notes expanded facil-
ities in the Bureau's new quarters
atop the Student Activities Bldg.
He reports that a "rising demand
for graduate degree holders in
business, government and educa-
tion and the continuing demand
for bachelor degree candidates"
mE.de last year "the most reward-
ing in the history of the Bureau."
But as the Bureau heads into a
new season, Ardis, who got his-
own start through the placement
service at Northwestern Univer-
sit:y,-warns that too many students
are neglecting to take advantage
of his office.
Ardis heads what is called a
"coordinated placement" program
under which several schools, such
as those of business administra-
tion, chemistry, engineering and
law, run their own separate offices.
The Bureau provides a central of-
fice "so that an employer wishing
to recruit at two or more offices
can make arrangements for the
de ;ails of his visit through a single
contact." It also provides place-
ment service where there are no
eparate facilities, particularly in
the literary -college and school of
Any University student with a
minimum of 12 hours credit, be-
hi id him can register in the
Bureau anduse its counseling ser-
vices for the rest of his life. A

The Steering Committee of the
literary college will hold an open
meeting at 4 p.m. tomorrow in
room 1402 of Mason Hall to con-
sider the problems of adequate
counseling for students.
Several plans for supplementary
counseling programs to be run by
students will be considered. Com-
ments and suggestions on propos-
ed projects such as a descriptive.

course requirements and materials,

tained for each student and is
kept up at his request. Ardis esti-
mates that his offices -hold over
65;000 alumni and current files.
In a typical recruiting season,
Ardis says the Bureau does busi-
ness with as many as 2200 school
districts and up to 3000 compan-
ies, which can bring in as much
as eight bushels of mail a day.
Interviewers.- usually come with
specific jobs to fill and when jobs
are scarce will continue to send
representatives to maintain con-
tact with possible future employes.
Recruiting "has been on the up-
swing for many years," Ardis said.
"We are experiencing nothing but
a growing thirst by employers for
college educated people. They want
and need more highly trained,
bright young people."
The emphasis in recruiting indi-
cates that 'those with graduate
and professional degrees are the
center of the greatest demand. It
is estimated that "at least two-
thirds of the requests received by
the Bureau are for alumni with
experience." This is also reflected
in-starting salary levels.
The average for all is up over
that of last year, -but bachelor's
degree graduates brought in an
avreage $500 monthly maximum.
whilethose with masters' degrees
earned $600. Women in these cate-
gories got approximately $100 less.
In education college teacher wages
rose $500 up to $6500 and the ele-
mentary teacher starting salary*
range fell between $4800-5000.
In placement carried on outside
the Bureau in .the business admin-
istration, engineering, forestry and
geology schools, and chemistry de-
partment, 769 candidates reported
placement. Pay differences be-
tween degree holders were great-
est between the master and doc-
torate levels. In business adminis-
tration, chemistry, and engineer-
ing the difference meant $200 or
more and in geology $350. The
spread between the -bachelor and
master level ranged -from $60 to.
Ardis notes, "It is cleardthat the
demand, for college graduates is
increasing more rapidly than the
supply." Education is experienc-
ing acute shortages, especially
since a 34 per cent increase in
requests for college teachers with
doctorates hasbeen met with "only
a slight increase in the number of
"There has been a real measure
of success here in placing students.
Invariably employers are pleased
and feel fortunate to get students
from the University." He credits
this to the University's "high
standards of admission and the
quality of instruction."
The decentralized placement
system brings the employer into
more personal contact with pro-
fessor and student, Ardis points
out. This is to the benefit and
the preference of the employers
"who like the personal touch,"
especially in business administra-
tion and engineering and other
fields of technical nature.
Since the Bureau handles the
preponderance -of bookkeeping
and keeps most of the records (the
schools themselves maintain no
permanent files), there is little
duplication of function.
He says that the most successful
placement is done through close

In the literary college the Bu-
reau maintains liaison with facul-
ty "contacts" who watch "out-
standing people" in the various
departments to "make sure they
get the right jobs." Schools like

their own informal placement and
The activity of the Bureau it-
self actually ranges far beyond
the University, which Ardis says
was one of the first to "go in for
formal placement." There is a
network of national associations
to encourage inter-university co-
operation in helping students and
alumni. The Bureau's own staff
often stumps meetings and con-
ventions that bring employers and
prospective employes together.
Ardis himself does much to find
and place superintendents for
school districts around the coun-
try. At a recent meeting of Mich-
igan school superintendents he
and his staff tried to spot trends
in employment in education and
also took the opportunity to talk
to educators who had jobs to fill
or who were considering switch-
ing jobs themselves.
Other functions of the Bureau
include setting appointments and
providing rooms for interviews.

A group of 25 high school stu-
dents from Sao Paolo, Brazil, on
a tour of the University yesterday,
brought a part of "Operation
Amigo" to Ann Arbor.
"Operation Amigo" is the brain-
child of the Miami Herald, which
serves as a coordinating agent for
the activities involved, as a non-
profit organization called "Opera-
tion Amigo, Inc." Through the ef-
forts of this group, various United
States cities arrange to act as
hosts for visiting, Latin American
Host city for the visiting Bra-
zil students is Flint. The students
are thus the first group to travel
this far north. according to George
W. Eyster of the Flint Board of
Education, leader of the tour.
Eyster explained that there are
currently 14 different groups of
Latin American students engaged
in similar tours branching out
from the East Coast. "A West
Coast newspaper chain has devel-
oped the same idea and is plan-
ning to branch out from the West
Coast next year," he added.
While in Flint, the Brazilians
are the guests of students of
Flint's Northern High School,
Eyster went on. Each visitor is
assigned to live with one of the
American students during the 19
days of the visit. They attend
classes with their hosts and even
go to local dances with them,
learning the twist and showing
the American students the samba
Besides dancing, the visitors at-
tend football games with their
"amigos," including yesterday's
game with Illinois. Their tour of
the University has taken them to
various campus attractions.
Most of the visiting Brazilian
students speak "pretty fair Eng-
lish," and their only problem in
being able to communicate freely
with their hosts lies not in their
lack of comprehension of our
tongue, but ratherin the speed
in which Americans speak, Eyster
The prevalent opinion among
the foreign visitors was that
America was a very new country
and that the University was quite
unlike anything the Brazilian stu-
dents hadmback home; although
one of them pointed out that the
University of Sao Paulo, when it
opens next year, will be some-
