Late Vacation Darkens
Outlook for Holiday Jobs

MEETS PUPIL'S NEEDS:
Hopkins Tries Liberal Education Plan

By MIKE SCHERER
The Christmas vacation job sit-
uation this year seems to be glum
for most University students.
With only two working days
left after classes are dismissed Fri-
day, Dec. 21 until Christmas, many

Irish Writer,
Bowen To Talk
Here Monday
Elizabeth Bowen, noted Irish-
English writer, will speak at 4:10
p.m. tomorrow in the Rackham
Lecture Hall.
Under the auspices of the Eng-
lish department, Miss Bowen will
talk on "The Writer's Role in the
Atomic Age."
"The Heat of the Day" is Miss
Bowen's latest novel. She has also

are finding jobs difficult to se-

MOST SERIOUSLY affected by7
the late vacation are students who,
had planned to work in retail
stores during the Christmas shop-
ping rush.
In Ann Arbor, very few posi-
tions will be available for stu-
dents who do not go home for
vacation, according to Mrs. Bet-
ty Gauss of the University Stu-
dent Placement Service.
Last year there were hardly any
vacation jobs available for stu-
dents through the University
Placement Service, Mrs. Gauss
said. What few there were con-
sisted mainly in shovelling the
heavy Christmas week snows.
December job placements were
lower than any during the year
of 1950, she said. This is ex-
plained mainly by the decline of
activity here during vacation.
"This year we expect little or
nothing in the line of jobs for stu-
dents." She advised students who
want to work during vacation not
to stay in town.
THE MOST fertile local field of
vaaction jobs for students has
been the U.S. Post Office. The
Ann Arbor post office will employ
100 students, mostly on night
shift, to help with the Christmas
mail rush.
The Post Office was flooded
with applications, and the quota
was easily filled by Nov. 25.
The main source of home town
jobs for University students this
vacation will probably be taking
first-of-the-year inventories and
helping handle the barrage of
post-Christmas gift exchanges.
* * *
ALTHOUGH STUDENT opinion
varied on whether it was better to
work or just relax during vacation.
there was little disagreement that
the late vacation was undesirable.
Pete Reed, '54, wasn't worried
about the lack of vacation jobs.
Because of income tax, he couldn't
earn any more money until after
Jan. 1 anyway.
A second lieutenant in the Army
Reserve, Robert B. McGhee, '52E,
came up with an all-inclusive solu-
tion for students who couldn't find
vacation work.
He said,"The greatest opportun-
ity for a good paying, interesting,
secure job for Christmas may be
secured at your local U.S. Army
Recruiting office."

By DIANE DECKER
When President D. W. Bronk of
John Hopkins University took over
office this fall, he brought with
him a complete new plan for un-
dergraduate education.
Convinced that American col-
lege students were being caught
up in a system of mass production
and impersonality, Bronk backed
his conviction with action and re-
vised the academic pattern to fo-
cus on the needs of the individual.
Accordingly, a student at Hop-
kins is now his own pilot. If he
is interested in English and has
no aptitude for mathematics, the
Hopkins student plans his sched-
ule so that his interests are best
fulfilled.
*1 * *
"THE HOPKINS plan is a very
interesting experiment," according
U IN

to Prof. Algo D. Henderson of the
education school. "However, such
a program would be extremely
hard to put into effect at a larger
university."
He pointed out that John
Hopkins is rather unique among
U.S. colleges. Although it has
a well - known undergraduate
school, its students are "aiming
for the works." They expect to
come out of the university with
an advanced degree, as authori-
ties in their particular field.
In order to make a program of
student selectivity effective in most
schools, Prof. Henderson believes
that "the college must be able to
provide extremely good counsel-

ling service, and most institutes
just cannot afford it.
John Hopkins authorities don't
intend to stop here with their
overthrow of the time-hallowed
premises of education. Moving to-
ward a goal of a single school with
no differentiation between grad-
uate and undergraduate work, they
have taken some big steps in that
direction.
In line with their "free educa-
tion" program, they have thrown
open the doors of the university
graduate school to undergraduates.
Hopkins does not plan to do away
with its A.B. degree, but it does
consider every student a future
Ph.D.
