The committee was named to

IT RECEIVED a proposal that a
new state board of education be
established to combine the work of
the present board, the superin-
board of control of vocational edu-
cation, the teachers' tenure com-

Experts told the committee
that major downstate areas had
a pressing problem in building

than it needed.

To End Blockade
By J. M. ROBERTS, JR..
AP Foreign Affairs Analyst
BERLIN-The situation in Ber-
lin contains the strong possibility
that the Western Allies will soon
face a decision as to whether they
want to risk war with Russia, now
The allied representatives here
who seek to end the Berlin block-
ade by negotiation naturally are
not going to admit dispair. But
I cannot find one glimmer of hope
that negotiation will bring an end
to the East-West war for control
of Germany. Any relaxation of the
blockade would merely mean a
slight tactical change on the over-
THE RUSSIANS are out for
control of all Germany. The Co-
munists would soon be back at our
throats with some other tactic or
on some other front. They are
conducting a fanatical campaign.
As long as their policies remain
unchanged and their dynamism
unchecked, the conflict will go on.
THE BRITISH and French, ac-
cording to a highly authoritative
non-American source, consider
continued operation of the air lift'
as a definite threat to peace. This
analyst recently made three points
in reporting the situation to his
1-The danger of war can be
avoided only by a four-power ap-
proach-such as has been under
way-to the Berlin problem, with
lifting of the blockade as the prin-
2-If the Western Powers con-
tinue indefinitely to operate the
air lift, incidents are bound to
develop which would cause war.
3-An attempt to break the
blockade with armed ground con-
voys would produce immediate
SINCE THIS report was made,
developments have dimmed most
hopes on the first point. On the
second point, we can only wait
and see what Russia is willing to
take. The American belief here is
that, if we ourselves are prepared
to take the risk of war, peace can
be preserved, lift or no lift.
On the third point, there is no
longer much discussion. Some
Americans still feel that, given
sufficient notice in which to with-
draw to a face-saving position, the
Russians would not open fire on
convoys. But the emphasis now
is on getting the job done through
the air lift.
If the Russians try to interfere
with that, if we come to. the point
where we either have to put up
fighters to protect the cargo
planes or get out of Berlin, then
America will have come to what
might very well prove the final
cast of the die.

HCL Forces Record Total of Students To Seek Jobs
By BOB WHITE, Daily Special Writer
A record number of hard-pressed students is finding that a day's
work this fall doesn't end with their last class.
It appears, according to University personnel officials, that the
HCL, teamed with dwindling G.I. subsistence, has hit many a student
pocketbook - and hard.
In addition, many post-war college students find themselves with
more mouths to feed than their own.
And while the number of applications for jobs has shot upward,.
corresponding opportunities for work have shown a decline from early
Alfred B. Ueker, University personnel officer, said that about 400
students had applied to his bureau since the beginning of September.
At the same time, he continued, only slightly more than 100 jobs
have been offered. Even though a few of the available jobs require
more than one worker, it is unlikely, he said, that the ratio of oppli-
cants to opportunities will be much better than three to one.
On the brighter side, Ueker reported that over-all earnings, in
"JUST GOOD FOOD"
at the Wolverine DEN
terms of wage rates, have shown an increase from immediate post
"Placing students in jobs that fit them is not entirely lacking ir
humor," Ueker commented. He cited a recent order calling for "young
men of about average athletic prowess and manly physique to serve
as models for an art class."
The most frequent reactions to that particular offer, he said
were righteous indignation and embarrassment, or both.
Each applicant is interviewed one or more times at the personne
office in University Hall, and an effort is made to fit students in jobs
they will like and can perform well, Ueker explained.
For many students, he said, part-time work this year will providt

How high Buan uyou go,
IN THE U. S. AIR FORCE?
The ceiling's unlimited! Men who enter the
Air Force as Aviation Cadets become 2nd
Lieutenants within a year. From there on, they
can climb as far and as fast as their ability and
the needs of the service permit. Under the Air
Force expansion program, there is plenty of
room for advancement. 2nd Lieutenants auto-
matically become 1st Lieutenants after three
years of service; are eligible to become Cap-
tains, Majors and Lieutenant Colonels after 7,
14 and 21 years respectively. More rapid pro-
motions are frequent. Never before has the
opportunity for making the Air Force a perma-
nent career been so favorable, especially to
the men in Aviation Cadet Pilot Training.
