Depend On Broad,
Varied Education
As the significant days of com-
mencement draw near senior women
are feeling a new anxiety about their
future. They are coming to the reali- f
zation, that comes June, they will de-
part from their cloister-like college r
world into the uncertainty that the f
future holds.
They will be among the thousands Y
of college graduates who will bea
pondering overthequestion of how
to get a job. The present world of
chaos is being brought closer to
reality when they investigate the op-
portunities that lie open to them.
Need Sound Education
Miss Virginia Gildersleeve, Dean
of Barnard College, in a survey of
current professional trends and em-
ployment of women, stated that for
all professions, women need, if they
are to be successful, the best possible
professional preparation based on a
sound, broad general education.
Teaching jobs, always a popular
profession among women, she said,
are much more difficult to obtain
than formerly. Men are now forc-
ing women out of many of these be-
cause of the fewer jobs open during
the depression. However, one type
of teaching that still needs many good
aspirants is the administration field,
she advised. There are not nearly
enough qualified women who have
the background to do the administra-
tive work.
Positions Are Available a
Government service, research lab-
oratory work, and the statistical in-
vestigations of some institutions offer
excellent opportunities today, Miss
Gildersleeve informed inquiring wo-
Donald H. Moyer of the Harvard
Alumni Placement Service has cau-
tioned the graduating members of
the Class of 1940 that the fields of
journalism, publishing, radio, adver-
tising, and the arts will absorb only
those whose capacities show prom-
ise of outstanding achievement. Me-
diocre candidates had best look else-
where for employment.
Politics in this exciting election
year beckons to youth, because the
need for ability is great, Moyer as-
