senors, graduates, and professors in the past. Undoubtedly, a survey of
the School of Forestry and Conserva- sni r thrt
tion will be at 8:30 p.m. today in Sagi-
naw Forest at the third Sister Lake,
three miles out on Liberty Rd.
The round-up will consist of a'

members of the senior class and as a
last farewell to the forestry professors,'
according to Williard Hildebrand,
senior class president.
The annual Field Day for members
of the School of Forestry and Conser-
vation will be held in the same place
Saturday afternoon and evening.
According to Hildebrand, who is in
charge of the annual event, open com-
petition will be staged to show the
practical skill of the students and pro-
fessors in the forestry school. Prizes
will be given for the winners in various
contests, such as canoeing, log-birling,
running a compass traverse, chopping
and sawing to a mark, rifle-shooting,
and running races.
The professors, who have tradition-
ally lost the faculty-student tug-of-
war, have begun to muster forces in
an effort to win for the first time in

graduation?" would result in some
variation of, "Look for a job, I guess."
The answer, in the days of the
"temerarious twenties," had some
I significance. Jobs were abundant -
the only problem was to pick out the
position and go to work. Then came
the depression and the "timorous
thirties." Anything at all proved the
byword, and the graduate who could
get any job, much less a good oneI
was the exception and not the rule.
But where are we today? Has the
New Deal taken us far enough away
from the depression so that the grad-
uate can be reasonably sure of get-
ting some sort of a job? The Roose-
velt administration has concerned it-
self deeply with the problem of em-
ployment. The project has not, how-
ever, attempted to take care of the
college graduate. He has been ex-
pected to find his place directly in
What then, does private industry
think of the 1935 graduate. When he
-begins his search for employment, will
the job-seeking senior just out of col-
lege find the door of the business
world open to him? What does the
business man think of his ability,
training, and possible employment?
In the last six months, we have
talked and corresponded with a great
many leading men in the business
and professional worlds. We have
asked them these questions, in an
endeavor to determine the way the
wind was blowing.
The results of these cdntacts have
been many and varied. Optimism
generally prevails among men higher
up in industry. The ordinary em-
ployment manager is much less im-
pressed about the future. Less than
two weeks ago we talked with two
men in the general offices of one of
the large automobile plants -one
the employment manager, the other
an executive high in official circles.
The former gave us little encour-
agement for the future. A strike
has forced them to close down many
of their plants. Employment condi-
tions were bad. A sign on the doori
read, "The Employment Office will
be closed temporarily." The man-
ager was practically pessimistic.
This condition is quite general. Men
who contact the public are wont to
continue the philosophy of the de-
pression. Men higher up, however,
paint a different picture. Conditions
are better they say. The college
graduate should be able to get a job.
His chances are definitely better than
they were last year or the year before.
Employment men, they say, hire when
they're told to, and whom they're told
to, and can get no real insight into
Quite naturally, reactions vary in
the different fields. The professions
tend to be less optimistic, with the
possible exception of forestry, than
are the lines associated with industry.
Business is improving. Prosperity
may not be here definitely. Perhaps
it's not even "just around the corner,",
but it is on its way. It brings with,
it the opportunities for the college
graduate. The problem is, then,
whether or not the graduate is pre-
pared to take his place in the rise.

Moore Bill Unfair
(Continued from Page 1)
intentioned property owners became
unable to pay their taxes. As a re-
sult, much land has come toothe state
through tax sales. If all land on
which taxes are now unpaid is sold,
the state will become over-burdened
with land, which at present property'
values will not be worth anything,
and will be deprived of current tax
payments. If the bill becomes law,
not only will the state be relieved
of an excess of land, but its treasury,
badly in need of immediate funds,
will receive current taxes. True, it
will lose 280 million dollars in de-
linquent taxes, but it would lose them
even if the taxes were not cancelled.
In refuting these arguments, Pro-
fessor Ford emphasized his belief that
the bill is unfair to those who have
paid taxes. "The proponents of the
bill speak as though we would never
experience another depression," he
said. "When we emerge from the
present depression, one of the best
things that might be done would be
to prepare for another one."
"If these delinquent taxes are can-
celled," he continued, "we have no
reason to assume that many people,
who have paid conscientiously during
the past few years will refuse to pay
in the next depression."
Professor Ford called the cancella-
tion of the 280 million dollars "a sub-
sidy which would work a hardship
on the rest of the people because
of the necessary additional levies to
make up for the cancellation."
As another reason for opposing
Senator Moore's plan, Professor Ford
explained that it has been estimated
that delinquent taxes in Michigan
have been pledged to the amount of
nearly 50 million dollars in short term
notes and refunded bonds. "Cancel-
lation of such collateral," he asserted,
"is obviously unfair."
Professor Ford believes that collec-
tion of delinquent taxes is not as
hopeless as it seems. He mentioned
estimates which state that nearly
60 million dollars were collected last
year and the survey of the Michigan
Municipal League. This survey, he
said, indicates that out of 16 counties
during the fiscal year 1934, in seven
counties collections of current taxes

able compatability, the lion is too
hungry for meat, which he steals
