Labor dept. indicates
unemployment up for
Vietnam war veterans
WASHINGTON (M- Returning Vietnam war veterans are
having an increasingly tough time finding jobs despite special
government help, and the situation is likely to grow worse as
the war winds down, the Labor Department has reported.
Of some three million Vietnam veterans in the labor
force, about 200,000 or 6.5 per cent were jobless in mid-1970
compared with a national jobless rate -of 5 per cent at that
time, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said Monday in its
Monthly Labor Review magazine.
The national jobless ra-te in the three months since then
has climbed to 5.6 per cent of the work force and if the
veterans' pattern following the same trend, their unemploy-
ment rate now would approch 7 per cent.'

Joblessness among veterans has
risen in the past year as more
came home to compete in a slow-
ing economy, the report said. The
6.5 per cent veterans' jobless rate
in mid-1970 was up from 4.5 per
cent a year earlier, it said.
"As reduction in the armed
forces strength continues, others
will also be looking for work, at
least temporarily. With the num-
ber of veterans rising, there is
growing concern regarding their
employment situation."
President Nixon and his eco-
nomic advisers have pointed to
the slowing the war and t h e
nation's transition from a war-
time to peacetime economy as a
major reason for rising jobless-
ness. The report by the Bureau of
I Labor Statistics was the f i r s t
showing the specific effect on re-
turning veterans.
The report showed unemploy-
ment among Vietnam veterans4
aged 20 to 29 was highest among
those under225, with a jobless rate
of 8.7 per cent at mid-1970. It is
K probably higher now.
" While the number of Vietnam
veterans who did find jobs between
mid-1969 and mid-1970 rose 600,-
000, the number of returning vet-
erans climbed 700,000 during the
same period, adding 100,000 to the
jobless rolls.C
Veteransshave more special job
aid than non-veterans, such
rhigher unemployment compensa.-
1 tion, special government job train-
ing programs and GI Bill educa-I
tion benefits.
However, only about 20 per cent
of Vietnam veterans took advant-
age of vocational job training in
the past few years and even few-
er about 15 per cent - went back
to school under the GI Bill.
Veterans' re-hiring rights don't
have much effect because many
had little or no job experience be-
fore entering the armed forces, or
don't want to return to jobs they
held briefly before going to war.
the report said.
Many more veterans will pro-
bably eventually take vocational
job training before the eight-year
eligibility period expires, but far
fewer go to college because t h e y

The number of students voting
was 3489, roughly 11 per cent of
the total enrollments.
On the referendum, "Should two
students and two faculty be seated
with the boardofRegents, said
students and faculty to have all
regental privileges except the right
to vote?" the count was 2502-369
for approval.
Ackerman and Lewin also con-
demned theUniversity, this time,
for its "failure to be responsive
to its constituency." In a state-
ment last night, Ackerman said
that SGC should work to develop
a coherent program for forcing
the University to meet its respon-
sibilities to the community.
Incumbent Hunt campaigned to
make SGC "more effective and
representative." He has worked to
help implement the Black Action
Movement demands for increased
minority admissions and is active-
ly interested in improving student
life and the University as a whole.
Each of the candidates elected

executive council have expressed
strong support for the establish-

posed of 40 students and 40 fac-

Likewise, all eight students feel
they will' best accomplish their

Rackes, Ratner and Prahar, who
ran with Roberts on the Coalition

much emphasis on bettering com-
munications with the LSA faculty
as a meahs of achieving reform.
They have indicated support for
such academic reforms as extend-
ing pass-fail to most or all
courses, abolishing distribution re-
quirements and instituting the
LSA government reform proposal.
Bridges supports extension of
the pass-fail option and abolish-

Some myths die hard. Like the academic
world is dull, the university exists mainly for

sor has blown the whistle on all this. "With
all the prickly donnish sarcasm at his com-

turn a Ph.D. into a gold mine. Where to
teach, what to teach, how not to teach any
more than necessary - these are the kind of

25 years in the making.
We'd like to thank the makers of the other new
economy cars for giving us such a nice head-start.
It gave us time to develop an inspection system
so ridiculously scrupulous that it ekpects every
VW to pass 16,000 examinations.
It allowed us to find out (at a reasonably scien-
tific pace) how we could double our horsepower
without doubling the cost of your horsepower.
(The VW still gets about 26 miles to the gallon
ard requests only a smidgen of oil.)
It permitted us to work on things that didn't
even have to do with the actual making of the car.
Medi-car, the Volkswagen Diagnosis System, for
example. Electronic equipment that can spot trou-
ble in a car before it gets to be trouble. When
you buy a new VW, you get 4 free Medi-car
