Rosy Job HuntingFaces1948

You're a lucky guy, Mr. 1948 En-
The average graduate mechani-
cal or civil engineer still faces a
rosy future when it comes to his
job hunting in 1948 and it looks as
if the happy situation might con-
tinue for at least a couple of more
This was the joint opinion ex-
pressed yesterday during inter-
iews with Professors Ransom
Hawley and Earnest Boyce whose
Aptitude Test
To Be Given
Pre-medical students who have
registered, or have been given per-
mission, to take the medical apti-
tude examination, should report
at 8:30 a.m. tomorrow at Rack-
ham Lecture Hall.
The students are requested to
bring a $5 money order or check,
payable to the Graduate Record
Office, with them to the examina-
The Medical School prefers that
applicants take the examination
given this week, instead of the one
that will be given in February, it
was announced.

mechnical and civil engineering
departments continue to provide
indui try with the major part of
the ttechnically trained Michigan
grif uates that they hire.
"An engineer is very fortunate
to. be graduating now, if he has
Ywl at it takes," Prof. Boyce de-
chred. If he's a graduate civil en-
gineer, he'll have his choice of two
ov three jobs with an average sal-
9,ry of $250 a month.
I added Advantage
Both Prof. Boyce and Prof.
Hawley felt that the favorable sit-
uation might continue for two or
three years as industrial corpora-
tions attempt to fill the shortage
of technical men created by the
war and the present post-war ex-
ransion. However, both qualified
the statement by adding, "barring
a decided change in the economic
tate of the country."
4equests Received
Prof. Hawley declared that re-
quests had already been received
from 27 industrial corporations to
interview the February crop of
mechanical engineering graduat-
ates. Approximately 75 requests
for graduates to fill single posi-
tions have also been received.
"Another point to consider,"
Prof. Hawley said, "is that the jobs
requiring foreign service are just
beginning to open up again.

nich," he said, adding "Russia
wants only a Soviet world, and we
must use cur great industrial
power to scare Russia and Keep
Stalin cautious."
Russia entered the UN only to
paralyze it and prevent the re-
covery of Europe, according to
Knickerbocker. Vishinsky's at-
tacks in the UN were only "reac-
tions of frustration" at being
checked, he added.
Maintaining that the Marshall
Plan was designed to 'contain the
Russians," Duranty pointed out
that to further this end we gave
support to "not very desirable ele-
ments, including members of the
extreme right."
We gave the voters in Greece a
chance to vote only for monarchy
or Communism, according to Du-
ranty. He asked, "What about the
liberal forces, the middle ground,
with whom we should cooperate?"
"It's no good blaming the whole
thing on Stalin,' Duranty conclud-
ed. "If you're going to use force,
use force, but it would be far bet-
ter to find common ground with

Working Girls Join Together
To Participate in Social Life

Cooking, washing dishes and
baby-sitting may help a woman
underwrite her own education and
prepare for the more traditional
future, but it doesn't do much for
her social life.
About 150 women, working in
private homes earning their room
and board and going to school at
the same time, find themselves in
this social rut. The usual routine
of spending their time studying,
attending classes and working 21
hours a week, in addition, leaves'
these women without the social at-
mosphere that their more fortu-
nate sisters in the dormitories and
League houses enjoy.
Resourceful Coeds
However, these coeds have
shown their usual resourcefulness
in attacking the problem. The Un-
derwriters club, formed for the ex-
press purpose of remedying this
situation, is attempting to weld
these working women into one big

League house, socially, according
to Barbara Willson, president of
the group.
Underwriter's social calendar
last year included theatre parties
and social gatherings. An expand-
ed program for this semester will
feature dormitory trips to "see
how the other half lives," Wednes-
day noon meetings at the Russian
Tearoom and a breakfast at the
home of Mrs. Mary C. Bromage,
Assistant Dean of Women.
Integration Desired
Underwriters is interested in
participating in other coed groups'
social activities, but members can
only do so individually and not as
an organization because of the
difference in the spare time which
each woman has.
Through these activities, Un-
derwriters hopes to help its mem-
bers become an integral part of
campus life despite the problem
which their working hours create,
Miss Willson said.

GUARD RUINS OF SUMMER COLONY-A marine National Guardsman, Pvt. James Gorman,

Goose Rock, Maine. About 40 cottages were destroyed and an estimated 200 to 300 summer homes
have been engulfed in flames from forest fires in the entire Biddleford-Kennebunkport area.

fice and cooperation-which have
made us powerful as a nation and
vital as a progressive influence
among the peoples of the world
for universal peace.",
In dealing with another of
America's most immediate prob-
lenrs, universal military training,
Dr. Karl T. Compton, president of
the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology, reminded the forum
that only six of the wartime allied
powers rely today on a voluntary
military system.
He contrasted Russia's "ever-
ready army of 10,500,000 mobilized
within thirty days" with this na-
tion's present force of about 60,000
combat troops. Although Dr.
Compton expressed little reason to
believe that Russia was engaged
in "a definite program of world
conquest," he argued that it was
nevertheless prudent for the Unit-
ed States to maintain "a strong
military posture."
In a discussion, "Keeping Amer-
ica Strong," Defense Secretary
James Forrestal summarized the
belief that military preparedness,
though essential, need not be detri-
mental to the peace; that it is too
early to rely entirely for our secur-
ity on world government. "The
purpose of our maintenance of a
military organization of the first
rank is solely and completely for
the purpose of giving the world
time to achieve stability.

Treatment of poliomyelitis is, at
present limited to aiding patients
in regaining the use of muscles
which have been paralyzed, but
with nerves not entirely destroyed
by the disease, Dr. James L. Wil-
son; chairman of the department
of pediatrics and communicable
diseases at the University Hos-
pital, said yesterday.
"There is probably nothing that
can be done with our present day
knowledge to alter the acute'
course of this disease," Dr. Wilson
asserted. In the past, numerousI
methods of treatment, at the time
thought to be successful, have
been tried, but always the results
of these treatments were at first
misleading, owing to a lack of
proper controls.
Misleading Symptoms
One of the manifestations of
polio, which has caused many in-
vestigators to be misled by their
results is that the virus causing
the disease may either temporarily
deaden a nerve or destroy it out-
right. About 60 to 70 per cent of
thoseustricken normally recover
without serious paralysis. Two to

ten per cent of the total cases
are fatal.
Many investigators compared
the results of their treatment,
applied to cases detected in early
stages to the results of those not
treated but whose polio was de-
tected in late stages because they
had some paralysis. Obviously, the
rate of recovery in cases detected
early is greater even if not treated.
Ineffective Treatment
When the experiments were re-
peated by making comparison of
like groups of treated and un-
treated, it was shown that the
treatments were ineffective.

Little Moron Corner
Mohair Moron, the upholsterer's son,
was found huddled up and shivering
in his refrigerator one day. He ex-
plained by saying, "I was th-thirsty
for a P-pepsi-C-cola and was t-told
it should be d-drunk when cold. Now
I can Uriuk it. I'm c-c-cold!"
You don't have to be a moron to
write these . . . but it helps. $2
for each accepted we'll pay you,
and not a penny more.
