The Bureau of Occupational Ap-
pointments and Information has
evolved from a teachers' place-
ment service inaugurated fifty-
four years ago by the University.
At present, it handles an average
of one hundred fifty persons per,
day and is constantly expanding.'
The bureau is organized into
three main divisions: teacher
placement, general placement and
guidance. It has twenty thousand
names on file in its Mason Hall
offices, containing complete in-
formation on an applicant's edu-
cation and past experience. Ac-
cording to Director T. Luther Pur-
dom's last report to President
Ruthven, it placed 912 men in ed-
ucational positions and 197 in gen-
eral, work during the period of
1939-40. Its services are available
to all undergraduates, graduates,
and alumni.
