Wkick way to go?
Think about a technical sales
career at Leeds & Northrup
It's tough to make a career decision when there
are so many ways to go. That's why Leeds &
Northrup's recruiter wants to help you think things
through and discuss the unusual opportunity avail-
able to the engineer who goes into technical sales.
If you haven't yet opted for the traditional engi-
neering career, think about sales . . . technical
sales. It's an area where you would be using your
engineering skills to match the product to the
problem and where you would have the chance
to develop your ability to communicate with top-
level executives. You should be able to exhibit a
degree of self confidence that is part of the pat-
tern of a successful sales engineer.

on your campus. It's the time for talk, not com-

in this kind of career option, arrange for an inter-
view through your placement officer. If

Regents expand loans

(Continued from Pagel)
dents have already requested
financial assistance.
Vice President for Ac adernic
Affairs Frank Rhodes told the
Regents that the University
could not meet this rising de-
mand for aid without additional
funds.
He also predicted that loan
requests would continue to
jump as long as the present:
economic situation continaed tol
deteriorate.I
HALF THE new funds will
come from current University
investments and the remainder
will be brrowed from kn %s yet
unnamed Detroit bank.
The University will thern, in~
turn, loan the funds to individual

All the loans, whichaverage
$1,500 per student, will be.guar-
anteed by the federal --overn-{
ment. Thus if a student fails
to repay the money, the federal
government would reimburse
the University.
RHODES said the loans would
be concentrated at students of
middle income famniles, who
often do not qualify for other
aid programs.
Under the program, students
can borrow money at low in-
terest while in school and reed
not begin repayment until nne
months after graduation.
In other action last niontn,
the Regents were told that Caro-
lyne Davis, dean of the School
of Nursing, has been appointed
associate vice president for aca-
demic affairs.
DAVIS will assume her new,
post on May 1, 1975, pending
confirmation by the board,
which is expected this month.
In the new job, Davis will,
oversee a wide range of pro-
grams including the health
science operations,% the"Teevi-
sion Center, and the Profes-
sional Theatre Program.
Davis completed her under
graduate work at Johns Hop
kins University and received
graduate degree from Sy-acus
University. She also headed th
nursing programs at severa
major hospitals.
THE REGENTS approved a
reorganization of the School of
Public Health which will incor-
porate two units into a single
Department of Health Behavior
and Health Education.
The change is intended to
s t r e a m 1 i n e and co-ordinate
teaching and learning activities
in the school.
