Absence may make the heart grow
fonder, but it also tends to make the
mind forgetful.
At least"that's the experience that
Uncle Sam has had-in 150 years of
Census-taking according to a letter
just recently released by the Bureau
of the Census asking college students
to cooperatein making the 1940 Cen-
sus as accurate as possible.
Uncle Sam, says the letter, is ask-
ing college students to write home
during March and request some-
thing besides the traditional check.
He wants the young men and women
who are living temporarily at school
to remind their parents: "Count me
in when the Census-taker comes to
the 'family mansion' in April."
Students Will Benefit
Feeling that college students, like
every other section of the popula-
tion, will benefit from a reliable na-
tional inventory,-the Bureau of Cen-
the letter continues, wants college
students to help make it a success

ents will report them.to the Census

Of Near East

tion they will need in order to re-
port on them accurately.
Affhand, the letter declares, it
might beethought that parents would
know everything about the student
which would be called for in the Cen-
sus. But the questions which are be-
ing asked in 1940 are somewhat more
complex than those of previous years,
reflecting the need for facts bearing
,on the many problems which have
arisen in the United States- during
the eventful decade just closing.
Questions To Send
The queries on which pareits are
most likely to be uncertain aIre those
relating to employment status. Stu-
dents are asked to clip the following
questions, answer them, and send
the information on to their parents;
1. Number of weeks the student
worked in 1939 equivalent full-time
2. Number of hours he worked dur-
ing the week of March 24-30, 1940.
3. Present, or if seeking work, last
occupation (exact nature of duties
4. Present or last industry (kind
of factory, store or other place of
5. Present or last class of worker
(wage or salary worker in private
work: wage or salary worker in gov-
ernment work; working on own ac-
count; unpaid family workers).
6. Whether at work in private or
non-emergency government work
during week of March 24-30.
7. If not, whether assigned to pub-
lic emergency work (such as NYA)
during that week.
8. If neither, whether seeking w rk.
9. If not at work or seeking work,
does the student have a job or busi-
ness, from which he is temporarily
on vacation, sick leave or lay-off?
Residence Of Student
The only other question which par-

Used For Statistics,
They will be used solely, for statis-
tical purposes. For example, it will
be possible to ,determine from the
1940 Cexisus figures the number of
college graduates in various occupa-
tions, the number of unemployed col-
lege. graduates, and great. deal of
other important information never
before available.
Not . only will the Census produce
material of this type,.the letter con-
eludes, which bears directly on the
student's pdospects, but will furnish
sociological data of considerable
value to students doing research.
Thus cooperation with the 1940 Cen-
sus will pay the student dividends.
