'IDE OPEN' SITUATION:
February Grads Find Jobs Plentiful
DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN
By MARCIA FRANKEL
February graduates of the Uni-
versity are finding jobs extremely
plentiful according to University
The new graduates, numbering
about 1500, are facing a "wide
open" situation in their search for
jobs. This situation is attributed to
service calls among men already
employed, and the upswing in in-
HOWEVER, many of the grad-
uates also face military service.
According to the new draft law,
the February graduate may enlist
within 30 days, find an essential
job, or return to school for a se-
emster of post-graduate work,
thus becoming exempt until June.
"Demand for college grad-
uates is tremendous," Luther T.
Purdom, director of the Bureau'
of Appointments declared. "We
are swamped with calls from
busines executives and personnel
officers. And we won't have near
enough teachers to go around,"
Officials at the Bureau of Ap-
(Continued from Page 2)
pointments do not know the exact
figures yet, but they have said
that the majority of the mid-year
graduates have already been
THE LARGEST NUMBER of
calls was in the technical and
business fields for engineers of all
types, physicists, mathematicians,
accountants, and secretaries. Re-
quests for women in these fields
are increasing and can't be filled
at the present time.
There has been a large assort-
ment of calls from other fields
too. There were some merchan-
dising offers, some for social
workers, and a few demands for
people to work in occupational
therapy programs. As a whole,
officials said that opportunities
for graluatesrwere extremely
good this winter.
Demand for engineers is good
and will be for a long time accord-
ing to Walter J. Emmons, Assist-
ant Dean in the College of En-
gineering. The expectations of a
year ago that there would be a
surplus of engineers has been en-
tirely changed by recent develop-
ments. Engineers of all types will
be greatly needed for rearmament
FOR GRADUATES of the
School of Business Administra-
tion, "the demand exceeds the
supply" according to Prof. Charles
L. Jamieson. The demand is par-
ticularly great in the fields of ac-
counting and industrial relations.
Officials say the demand will
probably stay strong for four or
five years to come.
Law School graduates are not
haivng any trouble being placed,
but their main problem is
whether the draft will permit
them to go into practice before
going into service. The draft,
of course, is the prevailing prob-
lem in all branches.
In the field of education, Pur-
d'Xn stated that jobs are especially
numerous at the elementary level.
Prof. Wesley H. Maurer of the
Journalism School has declared,
"Jobs are on the increase, and
there is a growing request for
