Declares 95 Per Cent of Jobs
in Commercial Banking
Houses Are Futile.
"Ninety-five per cent of the jobs
in commercial banking houses are
blind-alley jobs, jobs which do not
lead to anything," said Prof. Rob-
ert G. Rodkey, professor of bank-
ing and investments, in a talk yes-
terday on "Banking" at the second
forum sponsored by the business
administration club. "But the other
five per cent really lead to some-
thing, and the training the school
of busness administration gives
aims to equip graduates with the
technical knowledge to succeed in
thig, field.
The work of the five per cent of
commercial banking lies in the
fields of the credit, bond, loan and
discount, and new business depart-
ment. This field offers excellent op-
portunities, but the graduate has to
sacrifice something the first years
in the way of time, early hours,
smaller average wages than other
business lines offer, and more
work. The work consists at first of
gathering facts from balance sheets
of various firms, later of giving out
these facts judiciously, and finally
in forming judgments on the basis
of these facts. The man who con-
sistently delivers the goods in that
line, at the end of about the first
ten years, usually comes to be a
second or assistan4 vice-president,
with a salary of anywhere from
$10,000 to $20,000.
"In the other distinct field of
banking, investment banking, there
are two fields, selling and analy-
tical work. Anyone who has a nat-
ural selling ability should capitalize
on it. In the commercialcbanking
field opportunity is offered in the
new business department. With the
increase of interest in securities
during the past years, banking
houses have found it necessary to
organize a stitistical or analytical
department to analyze different in-
dustries and bond issues to deter-
mine where possible profit might
lie," concluded Professor Rodkey.
Prof. Charles L. Jamison, profes-
sor of Business policy, will be the
speaker at the next forum on
Thursday night. He will talk on

Formation of Councilor Groups
for All Entering Students
Latest Innovation,
Change Due to Growing Number
of Transfers Matriculating
From Other Schools.
Inauguration of advisory groups
for students entering the Univer-
sity in the fall as sophomores or up-
perclassmen is the only major inno-
vation in plans for the coming
Freshman Week, it was announced
yesterday by Prof. Phillip Bursley,
of the romance languages depart-
ment, who will again direct the
Freshman Week activities.
This move was necessitated, Pro-
fessor Bursley explained, by the
number of students of the three
upper classes who have been un-
able to orientate themselves to the
new environment. During the past
five years there has been an ave-
rage of 520 students entering the
University in the fall as transfers
from other colleges. These stu-
dents have found it extremely dif-
ficult to accustom themselves. to
the new surroundings and fit in
with the established order at the
Faculty to Assist.
With this difficulty in mind, Pro-
fessor Bursley has created a group
of approximately 30 faculty mem-
bers to supplement the 91 who' will
act as advisors to the freshman
groups. When the incoming soph-
omores and upperclassmen present
themselves at the Dean's office,
they will be assigned to advisors
in accordance with their line of in-
terest. This system will apply only
in the literary clege and the School
of Education.
These studnts, however, wll .not
be required to follow through com-
pletely the Freshman Week pro-
gram. Their attendance will be
obligatory only at the evening
functions; the President's address
of welcome; the mass sing; and
one other address, which cannot
yet be definitely announced. Out-
side of the general mixers, the li-
brary trip, and the lawn party at
the home of Dean Joseph A. Burs-
ley, they will not be required to
follow through the morning and
afternoon programs of Freshman
Length of Week the Same.
The length of the week has not
been changed, Professor Bursley
announced; it will last from Tues-
day morning, Sept. 23, to Saturday
noon, Sept. 27. In acordance with
the new ruling of the Senate Com-
imittee on Student Affairs, frater-
nity and sorority rushing will not
begin until Saturday noon. "This
will eliminate a lot of unnecessary
strain on the incoming students,"
Professor Bursley declared.
The pre-professional conference
for incoming freshmen will be
placed this year earlier' in the week
than the classification, in order
that the students may be aided by
the advice received in these con-
This year faculty advisors will
be expected to accompany their
groups through the process of clas-
sification; they will assist the stu-
dent in deciding not only what
subjects to take, but in what sec-

tions to classify. It is hoped that
this will do much toward simplify-
ing the entire classification system.
The number of student assist-
tants to advisors has been cut
down this year to 140, and the
number of men's groups has been
reduced by increasing the number
of men in each group to 20.
