11% Cho ce o a Career
From the Yale News?
T Someone, probably an insurance
! ~agent, was quoted recently as saying
that from the mass of one hundred
college graduates one individual only
rose to the Polo and butler class, peril-
~ously near the top of the financial lad- "
der. Five others became comfortably
off and found themselves after twenty
"i X years at the small yacht and chauffeur
stage. The other ninety-four presum-
ably congregate in the great section of
the American people who drive teir
own Buicks to the golf club. In other
words, dreaming about being a rich f
a' ~man is one thing, and making the grade
is "something else again."
Yet the ninety-four presumably work
I~r just as hard as the sumptuous six. Their
business is the axis on which a small
and uninteresting world revolves. They
have become devotees of the dollar 7
and when that fickle deity deserts, have
nowhere else to turn. Jammed in a
dull, straight rut of business they can
never leave the road and jump the f ence
gj, into finer fields of life. This, then, is
'I" ~the portion of ninety-four men out of i
every hundred now on the campus.
The answer to the problem lies in
the proper choice of a career. P
Between now and Commencement we Io
shall have something to offer on the
rwi subject of "Careers." Watch for the space
I~j , with the Famous Signature. ,
