Heilkinen Gives
'Michigan Cup'
Presents Alumni Award
To St. Louis School ;
The "Michigan Cup," for 21 years
in basketball competition among St.
Louis, Mo., high schools, was retired
Wednesday when Ralph Heikkinen,
'39. president of the undergraduate
"M" Club, awarded it permanently to
Central High School at a ceremony1
in the school auditorium. Central
earned the award by winning thet
fifth leg on the cup this year.
Donated by the University of Michi-
gan Club of St. Louis in 1918, the=
cup has had a longer history than
any others in similar competition in'
St. Louis, including special trophies<
given by Cornell, Yale, Princeton,
Harvard and Amherst, among others.1
Athletic Director Fielding H. Yost,
who was supposed to make the award,
was ill and unable to appear. Heik-
kinen, now assistant line coach here,1
spoke also at a luncheon of the local1
alumni club at Hotel Statler.
Birthday Party
Wins Alumni's
Cross country fliers, listeners in
the Canal Zone and Puerto Rico and
alumni from all over the United
States have sent congratulations to
the University Broadcasting Service
for the Michigan Day broadcast re-
leased over a national hookup March
18 from Ann Arbor.
Because of the great enthusiasm
with which the program was received
by alumni, it may become an annual
event, Prof. Waldo M. Abbot, directorI
of the Broadcasting Service, said.
Telegrams were received from
many alumni scattered throughout
the nation including one from Wyeth
Allen, '15E, who reported hearing
the broadcast while flying cross coun-
try with his wife. From the Canal
Zone, reports were received of good
reception by short wave.
In addition, letters and telegrams
have been pouring in by the hun-
dreds from almost every state in the
Union, many of them asking that the
program become an annual affair.
The Michigan Day broadcast, organ-
ized by T. Hawley Tapping, general
secretary of the Alumni Association,
was the culmination of the Centen-
nial Celebration of 1937. The program
originated from Ann Arbor with cut-
ins from Washington, D.C., and New
York City.

The Alumni Placement Commit-
tee of a great university tells the
members of its senior class in a
booklet on getting a job:
"Don't overlook the importance
and possibilities of 'wedge-jobs' in
getting a position. One of our most
prominent alumni started as a sten-
ographer in the office of a man
whom he succeeded as president of
that organization."
By "wedge-jobs," they mean rou-
tine positions which provide an op-
portunity for demonstrating an in-
dividual's ability.
Hamilton Business College pre-
pares its students for "wedge-jobs"
where there are opportunities for
advancement. Many of our gradu-
ates, starting as stenograbphers,
bookkeepers, or office clerks, have
advanced to responsible, highly-
paid positions as private secretaries,
accountants, and executives.
411 graduates were placed' in
positions by our Employment De-
partment during 1938.
