Survey Reveals Seniors
Face Big Job Shortage
A large portion of the record-breaking 4,645 University of Michigan
graduates who are scheduled to receive their degrees at commence-
ment will spend the summer months looking for jobs.
The job situation is tighter than at any time since the war and
the new alumni may have quite a hunt ahead of them before they
find what they are looking for, as indicated by the national job
survey published below.

ber of the economics department
will draw to the campus eight au-

Of IU'Study
A small Michigan town in south-
ern Genessee County will be the
center of an experiment in social
class analysis this summer.
For the past two months, a
group of graduate students in so-
ciology have been collecting data
concerning the historical and so-
cial setup of Linden. The town
was chosen as experimental ground
becau~se of its location, off a main
highway near Flint, and its man-
ageable size.
The group, under the direction
of Prof. Amos H. Hawley of the
sociology department, plans to ap-
ply five methods of social class
analysis to the village population
of about 700 in an attempt to cor-
relate methods devised for analyz-
ing social strata.
The experiment will provide val-
uable information for town mer-
chants and businessmen and will
also aid social welfare groups
within the community.

ducting an all out push to obtain
pledges then during the summer
months.

Many Foreign
Students Seek
Employment
A variety of activities will keep
the University's foreign students
busy this summer.
A large number of the students
are applying to the Immigration
Service for special employment
permits, according to Robert Klin-
ger, assistant counselor at the In-
ternational Center.
* * *
THE STUDENTS plan to work
at everything from camp counsel-
ling to road construction. Most of
them secure their jobs through the
Michigan Employment Service, the
Bureau of Appointments, a n d
sometimesh even through the em-
bassy of their, homeland.-
Because so many of the foreign
students will be working this sum-
mer, a smaller number than before
are expected to attend the sum-
mer session in ratio to those en-
rolled for the spring term, Kling-
er said.
Some students secure admission
to several universities to. assure
their coming here, and then make
their choice after arrival, he said.
"Or they may meet some zealous
alumnus of another schoolon the
boat and be converted."
Some of the students, while not
attending the University this sum-
mer, will transfer to summer
schools on other campuses.
Lane Hall Set
For Summer
Lane Hall will serve as a hot-
weather mecca for the religious
and recreational activities of sum-
muer school students.
In co-sponsorship with the Uni-
versity, Lane Hall will bring to
campus Chancellor T. R. Milford,
head of the theological college at
Oxford, England, and legal cus-
todian of the Magna Carta. Mil-
ford will be here July 15 to 22 and
will talk on the famous document
under his care on July 20.
Featured among the regular
summer projects of Lane Hall are
a series of intercultural retreats.
Lane Hall also hopes to hold
Saturday luncheon discussions.

and Camp Filibert Roth in Iron
County at which forestry students
gain field experience.

A GEOGRAPHY camp is oper-
ated in the Upper Peninsula near
Seney, and at Shady Trails, speech
improvement camp on the shore
of Grand Traverse Bay near
Northport, impaired speech cases
are treated by advanced speech
students working under the super-
vision of qualified professionals.
And at Interlochen, in north-
ern Michigan, the University's
nationally-known National Mu-
sic Camp will throw its doors
open to 1,200 students-250 on
the college level-who will pur-
sue studies in art, drama, dance,
music, camp counseling and re-
creation.
But closest to the hearts of most

University students is the Fresh
Air Camp. Scene of many a stu-
dent picnic and square dance dur-
ing the school year it provides a
summer of wholesome outdoor life
for 240 underprivileged boys.
* * *
THE BOYS who would not
otherwise be able to enjoy a camp-
ing experience because of financial
difficulties and behavior problems
are closely supervised by a group
of University students from the
education, sociology and psychol-
ogy departments working under
faculty and professional supervi-
sion.
Participating students receive
University credit for their work
and the boys enjoy a sun-filled
summer at the camp site on Pat-
terson Lake, 17 miles outside
Ann Arbor.

By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON-The nation's
employers will be swamped next
month when nearly 500,000
new college graduates start look-
ing for jobs.
About half these additions to
the country's educated elite will
be veterans, many of whom held
jobs before the war.
But neither past job experi-
ence norsa degree nor an hon-
orable discharge is a pass-key
today to a job in professional-,
semi-professional or adnini-
strmtive fields, the kind most
attractive to college graduates.
JOB PReOSPECTS
Ewan Cleague, commissioner of
labor statistics, has this to say
about job prospects:
"In 1950, probably also in
1951 and 1952, many will be un-
able to find jobs immediately in
the occupations for which they
have been trained."
He said there are fewer jobs
for college graduates this year
than in any post-war year and
that an "unprecedented number"
of new graduates is competing for
them.
FEWER GRADUATES IN 1951
'An - - --_ _ ^1--- -.rlle11 11f

The Bureau of Labor Statistics,
in cooperation with the Veterans
Administration, is trying to help
college men and women, especial-
ly veterans, pick occupational
fields which have the rosiest out-
look.
Trouble is, no outlook seems
rosy today.
GOVERNMENT REPORT
Iere are some highlights from
a recent government report which
show the white-collar job scarci-
ty:
LAW - Already overcrowded
and likely to become more so.
Twice as many lawyers passed
bar exams last year as in the
years just before the war. "Un-
precedented numbers" are now
enrolled in law courses.
ENGINEERING - "Not many
professions growing so fast," says
Harold Goldstein of BLS. He said
300,000 professionals were work-
ing in engineering in 1945. By
1960, he said, the number will be
more like 450,000. But for the
early 1950's the number of gradu-
ates will exceed the number of
vacancies.
CHEMISTRY - Competition
will be "keen" for chemists with

FROM STOCKHOLM TO MADRID:

'U' Students
University students will tour Eu-
rope from Spain to Sweden this
summer, on individual trips or in
travel groups gathered from all
over the country.
According to Health Service sta-
tistics, inore than 190 Michigan
students have already received
vaccinations and other inoculation
shots necessary for travel in such
countries as France and Greece.
MANY of these students plan
to see Europe as members of or-
ganized tours.
Others will live with private
families under the "Experi-
ment in International Living,"
and a number of students will
attend universities in France
and Switzerland, making sight-
seeing excursions during free
time.
France, England, Italy and Ger-
many will be a few of the coun-
tries visited by students on the
