Business Is Bowiming at
Bureau of Appointments

Business is booming in the Bur-
eau of Appointments and Occu-
pational Information.
"Business" to the Bureau means
helping University students to get
outside jobs and, with the em-
ployment cemands of an enlarged
University greater than ever be-
fore, the activities of the Bureau
have really become "big business."
Salaries Total $600,000
Dr. T. Luther Purdom, director
of the Bureau, estimates that if
the salaries of those placed after
graduation last year were totaled,
the figure would be about $600,000.
Russian Film,
Starts Today
"Stone Flower," new Russian
film in color with English titles,
will be presented by the Art Cin-
ema League at 8:30 p.m. today
through Saturday at the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre.
Based on an old folk legend, the
picture has been filmed in natural
color by a secret process.
"Life at the Zoo," short subject
describing experiments with the
behavior of animals at the Mos-
cow Zoo, will also be shown.
Tickets may be purchased from
2 to 8:30 p.m. today through Sat-
urday at the theatre box office.
Negro Council Unit
Undecided on Film
In response to several inquiries
regarding the stand of the, Ann
Arbor Council of the National
Negro Congress on the picketing of
"Song of the South," Mrs. Doro-
thy Griffel, member of the coun-
cil, said the organization has not
had time to make an official de-
cision on the picketing.1
The group does not oppose the
picket line, she said, and several of
its members have participated in
MYDA Will Hold
Unofficial Meeting
Michigan Youth for Democratic
Action will hold its first meeting
as an unrecognized campus or-
ganization at 7:30 p.m. today at
the First Unitarian Church, 1917
Harriet Ratner, president, said
MYDA will continue to follow its
policy of opening all meetings to
the public.

Over 400 graduates were placed in
the general job field alone last
year (not counting teacher place-
ment or summer jobs.) In the
same period, 1,328 were placed in
teaching positions.
Salaries for jobs on file at the
Bureau range from $1,500 up, in-
cluding one call for a corporation
president paying $25,000 annually,
and another call paying $15,000.
Thousands Use Office
Using the daily office register
as a guide, it is estimated that be-
tween 35,000 and 40,000 persons
last year passed through the door-
way of the Bureau office on the
second floor of Mason Hall.
But all work and no laughs are
things which make for a dull of-
fice and the Bureau office is
neither dull nor lacking in
variety. As an example, the Bur-
eau received a letter from the
principal of a grade school in Ohio
where the Bureau had placed a
University graduate teacher a few
months before. The harrassed
man, beridden with a shortage of
teachers, was nevertheless bitter-
ly complaining about the teacher's
habit of soaking and washing her
feet in a washtub before the class
every morning.
World-wide Scope
The scope of the Bureau's ac-
tivities are not limited to the mid-
western part of the country. Calls
have come into the office request-
ing applicants for jobs as hog
raiser in Arizona, Sunday school
superintendent in Alaska, workers
for a copper mine 20 feet under
ocean water, stock salesmen for
gold mines in Canada, and for
a meteorologist to work in Green-
land. In addition, calls have come
from such far away places as Af-
ghanistan, Turkey, Egypt, Pan-
ama, Hawaii, and throughout the
Far East.
Dr. Purdom listed as his great-
est headache the practice of some
interviewers coming from a dis-
tance who walk into the office
without previous notification to
the Bureau and expect to begin
interviewing interested students
in about 15 minutes. "These, how-
ever, are the exception," he said.
"About 99 per cent of the people
who come in here-both students
and interviewers-come in here
for business, and are very cooper-
Union Position

the community profit sharing plan

flatly called the one-day sale "an

Jack Hoffman, operator of the
town's largest department store,
told a reporter "today was the
biggest one-day sale in the 26-
year-history of my establishment."
Customers crowded into the
store to take advantage of a flat

At least two grocery stores gave
a 10 per cent discount on all pur-

George Karpinski, said he'd keep
the cut in effect "for at least a

15 cents.

The British, seeking an alter-
native to another loan from the

version takes longer and costs
more than originally expected-
as now appears likely-have an
idea which might permit America
to kill two birds with one stone.

Scott of the ROTC unit here an-
nounced today.

its directly, some of them think
much the same thing might be
achieved through American loans
to Britain's customers, preserving
her credit standing and at the
same time helping the economies,
of other friendly countries.
In the case of France, for in-
stance, a system might be worked
out whereby the proceeds of an
American loan would be used to
pay for France's imports from
Britain in dollars instead of
francs. This would give Britain
badly needed dollars and eliminate
sonic of the dangers in her trade
with France, which boys heavily in
Britain but which has only lux-
cries, which the leritish cannot'
After July 15, under the terms
of the U. S. loan agreement, Brit-
ain must pay for her imports in
dollars or whatever other currency
the supplying country may desire.
The last thing Britain wants is
another direct loan. She is striv-
ing desperately to bring up her ex-
portable production to make it un-
necessary. She has lost her posi-
tion as a creditor nation and be-
come the world's largest debtor,
but knows she can't keep it up for-
She sends 14 per cent of her
exports to the Western Hemis-
phere, for which she receives dol-
lars. But since 42 per cent of her
imports are also from the Western
Hemisphere, she has a constant
dollar deficit.
