38 Engineers,
Are Assured
Electrical Jobs


A. D. Moore Sees
Call Per Senior By
Of This Semester

Although almost two months of
school are yet to come, Prof. A. D.
Moore, who is in charge of place-
ment for the electrical engineering
department, announced this week
that already twenty percent of the
graduating electrical engineers are
assured positions in industry upon
To date 38 calls have come for
seniors from firms representing a
cross section of American industry
in the East and Middle West. In
addition to this encouraging report
on seniors, 32 calls have been made
for students already out of the Uni-
versity; however, the number of
available graduates is so low that
only a small number of the calls
could be filled.
Previous years have shown that
the coming two months generally
bring a marked acceleration in the
job-finding rate, - and Professor
Moore estimates that by June the
average will be well over one call
per senior.
The figures already given do not
include those from Civil Service and
numerous assistantships in colleges
and universities, which would, at a
conservative estimate, bring the av-
erage up to over one call per senior.
Dr. Bruce Will Speak
Dr. James D. Bruce, chairman o,
the Department of Postgraduate
Medicine in the School of Medicine
and chairman of the University's
Division of Health Sciences, will
speak April 17 on an as yet unan-
nounced subject.
