Women and minority grads find improving job market

By PATRICIA HAGEN
Not enough women and minority students are
graduating with degrees in engineerihg and other
technical fields to fill the number of job openings ac-
cording to the author of a survey of major cor-
porations.
"There are not enough women coming out of univer-
sities in engineering and sciences," said Dr. Frank
Endicott, author of the Endicott Report, an annual
survey of major college recruiting firms.
AN UPDATE OF the 1979 report, released Wed-
nesday, showed that the outlook for most college
graduates is improving in technical, business, and
scientific fields despite fears and uncertainty about the
Judge rules
Carter can't

wage-price
guidelines
WASHINGTON (AP)-In a major
blow to President Carter's anti-in-
flation program, a federal judge ruled
yesterday that Carter has overstepped
his constitutional power in trying to en-
force his wage-price guidelines.
U.S. District Judge Barrington
Parker said neither the Constitution nor
Congress gave Carter authority to
threaten to deny federal contracts to
companies that violate his "voluntary"
guidelines.
The decision does not prevent the
president from using his influen-
ce-"benign jawboning" in the judge's
words-to obtain purely voluntary sup-
port for his guidelines from business
and labor.
BUT IT DISARMS the administration C

economy. The yearly survey of 156 large, well-known
businesses concerning employment trends for college
gradautes is published by the Placement Center at
Northwestern University.
At least as many women will be hired as last year by
the 102 companies surveyed for the update, Endicott
said. "The competition for women is very keen (bet-
ween companies)."
Minority degree earners face "exactly the same
situation," said the retired director of the North-
western University Placement Center who has written
the report for 33 years. Ninety-five per cent of the com-
panies said they are going to hire as many as or more
minority gradautes than last year. That is, Endicott

explained, "if they can find them."
"THIS YEAR'S market has been a decided im-
provement over last year," said Victor Linquist,
current Northwestern University placement director.
For college gradautes, this year "is the best I've seen
in the last 20," he added.
The companies surveyed plan to hire 19 per cent
more graduates with bachelor's degrees than in 1978
and 11 per cent more with master's degrees.
The job market is most promising for engineers and
gradautes with experience with computers. The
engineering student "has a great opportunity," En-
dicott said. The companaies indicated about 41 per cent
more engineering graduates will be hired in 1979 than

way from our civil liberties."

The proposed legislation is an amen-
dment to the Defense Department
Authorizing Bill. It would require men
who turn 18 after Jan. 1, 1981 to register
for the draft. The proposal also calls for
the president to make other recom-
mendations concerning the draft, such
as the registration and induction of
women.
CARD's members, who oppose the
amendment, say registration is the first
step toward the draft, which in turn,
will lead to war. Ruth Cadwallader, a
member of the Women's International
League for Peace and Freedom and a
speaker at the rally, told the audience,
"The draft is a key to war."
THE DEMONSTRATORS converged

students David Wolfe and Royd
Buchele, the protestors marched
through the streets of Ann Arbor, while
many area shopkeepers left their stores
and clustered on sidewalks to watch the
procession. Demonstrators chanted
and carried signs which read, "Shaft
the draft," and "No draft, No way;
Money for jobs and education-not
war."
Upon arrival at the Federal Building,
several speakers addressed the group.
More chants, including "One, two,
three, four, we won't fight the rich
man's war; Five, six, seven, eight, we
will not cooperate," and "Hell no, we
won't go; War and racism have to go,"
punctuated intervals between
speakers.
