Early summer job hunt urged

Summer vacation may be three mon-
ths away, but now is the time to start
looking for that job to tide you over
from May through August.
According to Ann Cooper, coor-
dinator of 'Summer Placement at
Career Planning and Placement, the
best way to find a summer job is to
begin looking early.
"IT DEPENDS on the student,"
Coop-er said. "Freshmen and
sophomores should get serious right af-
ter Christmas vacation." She noted
there are a number of jobs available in
camps and resorts for underclass
"We have interviews for camp and-
resort jobs here at the office in
January, February and Marc," Cooper
said. She suggested contacting camp
directors and'requesting applications
as soon as possible.
"For juniors, seniors and graduate

students, there are some non-clerical
government jobs in Washington,D.C.,"
Cooper pointed out. She added these are
"highly specialized" and require
specific qualifications.
Students who want to find jobs near
their parents' homes should begin
looking during spring break, according
to Cooper. "This is especially true for
hospital jobs, which go very quickly,"
she said.
Cooper explained that certain regions
have more available jobs than others.
"For camps and resorts, I'd say that
Michigan, Wisconsin and the East are
the best parts of the country. "There
are also some jobs in the West."
For students who choose to remain in
Ann Arbor during the summer, there
are other job possibilities. The Orien-
tation Office, which runs orientation.
seminars for incoming freshpeople, will
be hiring some student employes. The
office is located at 2530 Student Ac-

tivities Building.
According to Director Don Perigc
the 20 summer orientation leaders hav
already been chosen, but the office ha
yet to hire leaders for the fall session.
"A fall position is just a matter .
working four days before school star
ts," said Heidi Winick, Perigo'
assistant. "So far, we've had about4
people apply.",
Perigo als noted the University wi
be hiring students for "dof-In-relate
jobs and advising offices." Position
would include kitchen and desk er
ployes for the orientation dormitory, a
well as student academic counselors.
The Temporary Employment Offic
also located 'in the Student Activitie
Building, will have jobs available in th
Ann Arbor area as well.

need not respond to questions..
"It is our legal advice that people
would be better off not speaking with
the FBI and refusing to cooperate with
the FBI in any manner," said Reno. She
explained that by answering questions,
respondents could reveal information
that might lead to the calling of a grand
jury. s
Reno said that in a grand jury in-
vestigation "many of the protections of
the Bill of Rights do not apply.''
Another of the group's objectives is to
prevent the FBI from "spreading

paranoia" among foreign students.
"The FBI is definitely interested in
isolating them (foreign students) so
they won't seek help, so they won't go to
attorneys," Rubin said.
"If the harassment doesn't come
today, you wonder what it's going to
mean when one graduates and gets out,
what it's going to mean having a file
with the FBI," a student said.
Reno and Kessler said they plan to
"make themselves available to people
who want to talk about this."
The sources said they did not know if
