play pro football," he added, "that
would be the only reason.
"I'd like to live in Ann Arbor next
year," he said, "and have a radio job
in Detroit. Hollywood is a swell town

Harmon was in Hollywood for
about a week, and during that time
he visited numerous movie sets, went
to a cocktail party at Gail Patrick's
home, had dinner with Olivia De
Haviland and Carole Landis, was the
house guest of Alan Mowbray, took
in most of the night spots in the3
cinema capitol, and was the frequent
guest of Bing Crosby who, our boy
Tom claims, is one of the best-liked1
men in Hollywood. And incidentally,1
Bing was the original advocate of'
a screen career for The Hammer.'
And did you know that the colors of
Crosby's racing stable are maize and
In Addition to all this activity,
Tommy Harmon broke another rec-
ord-this time, when his screen test
was made. "We walked on to the
Paramount set of "Las Vegas Nights,"
he related, "where Wheeler and Wol-

sey, Constance Moore, and Lilian
Cornell were going through their
lines, and they tested me there. After-
ward, the director told me this was
the first time they'd ever stopped
production on a picture to take a
screen test."
So now comes the question we've
all been waiting for. "How in the
world do you get your school workf
done, Tom?"r
The Ace grinned. "That's what the
Dean was just wondering about be-
fore I met you," he said, "but I'll
get it done. From now on, I'm tend-
ing strictly to business."
Three hours later he left for South
Bend, Indiana.

Editor's Note: This is the first of a
series of articles on the technique of
how to go and get that job. Today the
writer is concerned with the first step
in obtaining the interview.
Graduating seniors facing the
startling problem of "how to get a
job" in February or June are not
promised a given position by John
W. Riegel, Professor of Industrial
Relations in the School of Business
Administration, but his advice is free
-and good.
In an analysis of the process of
job-getting, Professor Riegel stresses
the necessity of preparation before
applying for that all-important in-
teryiew. "The student should con-
sider his interests and aptitudes, de-
fine his field of work and identify
potential employers for whom he
would like to work," he said.

Table Service
Is Resumed
At Union Dances
The Union took another step yes-
terday toward becoming the Broad-
way of South State Street when it
reinaugurated table service for those
attending its weekend dances.
Following an annual tradition of
beginning this cabaret service the
first Friday after Christmas vaca-
tion, tables were arranged around
the ballroom and in the Terrace
Room for the benefit of those who
were present at the Jackpot Hop
last night.
Bill Sawyer's orchestra will con-
tinue to play for the Union's dances
every Friday and Saturday. His vo-
calists, as before, will be Gwen Coo-
per and Bob Holland, with "Big
John" supplying the comic novelties
in the orchestra.
Reservations for tables at any of
the weekend dances may be made by
couples or parties telephoning the
Main Desk of the Union. Table ser-
vice in the ballroom will be con-
tinued throughout next semester.

When you go out for the evening,
leave a light turned on. A 40-watt
lamp costs less than one cent for
six hours. For helpful suggestions
