Jobs Available
In Education,
States Purdom
500 Job Applicants Shown
Need For Broad Training
Improving Personalities1
"Every man with a PhD in English
or Education had at least ten chances1
for a job last year," Luther T. Pur-
dom, director of the Bureau of Ap-
pointments, told 500 job applicants
Tuesday in the Rackham building
The University does injustice to
many persons, said Mr. Purdom, by
placing too much emphasis on teach-
ing people facts and not enough on
improving their personality. This lack
of personality prevents many young
people from obtaining the position
they desire, he declared.
"Our bureau is anxious to aid uni-
versity students in securing informa-
tion about vocations before they con-
centrate," he stated.
Mr. Purdom pointed out that therd
are three or four teaching fields where
there is a scarcity of available em-
ployees; namely teachers for elemen-
tary grades in art, commercial sub-
jects, and wood-working. There is a
surplus of teachers for social sciences
and English.
A lunmi Collecting
The University of Michigan Club
of East San Francisco Bay, California,
is collecting all available writings of
the late Prof. Charles Mills Gayley,
composer of "The Yellow and Blue."
The collection is to be placed in the
University Historical Collections when
A graduate of the University of
Michigan, the professor taught here
until 1889, when he left to join the
faculty of the University of California
at Berkeley. Professor Gayley also
wrote the lyrics for "Laudes Atque
Carmina" and "Goddess of the In-.
land Seas."
Bare-Legged Majorettes
Bamined At Oregon State
Poor Oregon State! No more bare-
legged drum majorettes. The ad-
ministration has spoken-either skirts
covering the knees or slacks. Not only
was color added to the band, but
pride in the college interest in-
creased since the advent of the pretty
leaders. The student body of
4,000-odd protest that their own so-
ciology professors have found the
youth of today cleaner mentally so
why the ban on "revealing uniforms"
that expose a foot of bare skin be-
tween boot top and skirt? Oregon
Staters will find out too how conven-
iently deaf an inflexible administra-
tion can be.

P-rogressive U nity
Will Halt Fascism
WASHINGTON, Nov. 15 -A-)-
Secretary of Agriculture Wallace said
tonight that farmers and workers
must unite behind "progressive ele-
ments" in government or a "new con-
servative majority" would force some
form of industrial fascism on the
United States.
In an address prepared for delivery

labor legislation, the Cabinet officer
said last week's elections showed a
"misconception of labor objectives
and methods" on the part of many
farmers and small-town residents,
