Engineering Placement OffiCe
OCTOBER 14 & 15
for BS and MS degree level
ChE, ME, -EE, and IE
Although we are a chemical manufacturing com-
pany, the P&G Engineering Division employs more
ME's than ChE's -as many EE's as ChE's!
In fact, we employ ALL kinds of engineers in
developing and manufacturing a widely diversified
line that includes soaps and detergents; toilet goods;
food products; paper products; wood pulp; and bleach.
We seek men with both ability and imagination,
interested in solving problems in radically new and
better ways.
You won't be chained to a drawing board; we
give substantial responsibility early. Typical early
assignments might range from design of a $10 mil-
lion paper machine to development of logic circuits
for a new automated facility.
For those who are interested, early opportuni-
ties in technical management are available.
We promote only from within, on a merit basis.
We do not know of any other organization where abil-
ity is more promptly recognized, or where opportunity
to advance is greater.
Especially if you plan to go to Graduate School,
or into the Service, come in now and get acquainted.
Sign up at the Engineering Placement Office
-we'll look forward to seeing you!

This high-resolution M6ssbauer
spectrometer, used to study nuclear
properties and solid state phenom-
ena, is one of many research tools
(ranging from the microminiature to
the multi-ton) designed and built by
LRL scientists and engineers. The
spectrometer has less than 2% ve-
locity jitter over a speed range of 100,
The functions of the spectrometer
are automated so that the resonant
absorptionsfor160 positive and neg-
ative velocities are obtained in a
normal run. Data obtained from
print-out scalars are processed and
plotted by electronic computers.
