Clark Believes Sinkiang Key to Asia

By JOE TANNENBAUM
Control of the little-known bor-
der province of Sinkiang (Chinese
Turkestan) gives Russia the
means to dominate all of Asia, ac-
cording to Prof. John Clark of the
Prof. Clark, who spent two and
a half years in Asia with the Ar-
my Engineers during the war, re-
cently returned from a 14-month
trip through Sinkiang and India.
He is the only living western
geologist who has been in Sinki-
"THE PROVINCE is important
in world affairs because it possess-
es (1) tremendous oil reserves, (2)
the only east-west highway across
Asia and (3) all-weather airfields;"
Prof. Clark declared.
"Surface indications are that
these oil fields are as rich, both
in quantity and quality, as the
fabulous Arabian fields," he said.
"Now that the Communists con-
trol China, Russia can exploit
these oil fields."
RUSSIA'S annual oil produc-
tion is equal to less than two
months of American production
and the output of Russian wells is
falling off, he said. Prof. Clark
pointed out that the importance
of oil in modern warfare makes
the oil reserves of Sinkiang vital
to Russia's war potential.
"Besides containing rich
stores of oil, copper, iron and
coal, Sinkiang is the site of the
only east-west highway across
Asia," Prof. Clark said.
The highway closes the gap be-
tween the Chinese and Russian
railheads, and without it the Rus-,

Struve, Chicago Astronomer,
Discusses Evolution of Stars
Replies To Charge
By Northwestern 'U'
Employment prospects with
large corporations are better in
Michigan than a recent survey by
Northwestern University indicates,
according to T. Luther Purdom,
director of the Bureau of Appoint-
Purdom discussed a report by
the director of Northwestern's
placement bureau, Frank S. Endi-
cott, who announced this week
that 169 well-known companies
contacted will require about 25
per cent fewer college graduates
* * *
"APPARENTLY the peak of em-
ployment of inexperienced college
graduates by business and industry
was reached in late 1948 or early
1949," Endicott explained.
Because of the near-comple-
tion of postwar expansion pro-
grams, present hiring is mainly
on a replacement basis, he said,
and lessening demand is evident
in all fields.
Endicott reported that hiring
will be cut as much as 55 per cent
in personnel work, 35 per cent in
sales and chemistry and 25 per
cent in accounting and chemical
He foresees "best opportunities"
in insurance and merchandising,
with only "small decreases."
"ALTHOUGH the general ten-
dency is correct," Purdom re-
marked, "the situation doesn't
seem to us as critical as the North-
western report makes it appear."
A bright side of the survey's
employment picture is the ex-
pected increase in college gradu-
ates entering smaller businesses.
Also, Endicott noted, the aver-
age beginning salary for men is
expected to remain the same,
$245 per month.
To solve the growing problem of
how to employ the record number
of graduates, the companies will
survey employment policies and
seek to develop closer .cooperation
with college and universities.
"The prospective drop in oppor-
tunities need not be alarming," Dr.
Endicott pointed out "if the rapid
expansion programs of the last
"z few years are remembered."
Dr. Purdom and Dr. Endicott
agree fully that "plenty of oppor-
tunity still exists for the individual
willing to start wherever he can,
work hard, and let his education
prove its value on the job."

THE ART CINEMA League, by

this competition brings better

The functions of the ACL, ac-

koff, are to provide cheaply a
type of entertainment which is
not usually fostered by regular
exhibitors; to encourage the
growth of movies as a form of
art; and to financially assist stu-

POSSIBLE PICTURE presenta-

a faculty board consisting of Prof.

the Architecture School; Prof.
James 6'Neill, of the French de-

The board screens out poorer

widely acclaimed pictures which
appear inspiring or stimulating.

This, the first full-length tech-
of the processes by which stars
are believed to rejuvenate.
* * *
"ONE PROCESS begins when
dull stars that are immersed in
dust clouds are bombarded by par-
ticles which add mass and pro-
duce high rotation and bright
luminosity. Such a star spins so
rapidly that its edges flatten, its
equator bulges and rings of dust
particles resembling the rings of
Saturn are formed," Prof. Struve
The star, loosing more mass
than it gains, he said, also loses
He added that in time such a
star is again immersed in a dust
cloud, and the process starts over

THIS TYPE of evolution, Prof.
emphasized, has actually been ob-
served and verified through spec-
troscopic surveys of the Milky
The second process, still a
theory, he said, covers slowly ro-
tating stars that release light by
the changing of hydrogen into
helium and the transformation of
mass into energy.
Our sun, which is of this type,
will eventually burn itself out in
10 billion years, he added.
This year's Gulantics review still
