ROTC To Sponsor Ball

Military Ball, traditionally held
each spring semester, will be held
from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday in
the Union Ballroom.
Fred Netting will play for the
dance which is sponsored by the
campus ROTC units. Coming from
Detroit, the band has played at
A4ajor dances in the southern
Michigan area.
Featured by the Netting group,
will be Judy Claire, a vocalist who
is heard daily over a Detroit radio
station. Also featured will be Wal-
ly Gordon on the trumpet.
The decorations for the military
dance will center about training
devices used by the armed ser-
vices. Cut away projection pieces
will allow the couples to see how
various engines work. Done in
color, the decorations will follow
a new trend.

A clock on the wall will keep
official military time so that coeds
will be able to dance till 6 a.m.
although actually they have been
given only 1:30 a.m. late permis-
sion from the University. The
Greenwich clock will serve mere-
ly as an unusual decoration.
Tickets are available from offi-
cers and members of the dance
central committee. They may also
be purchased at the military offi-
ces at North Hall.

Spalding's saddle oxford is still walking away
with top honors. Not just the co-eds, but every
busy, comfort-craving young woman wants the
Spalding classic. A soft, tapered toe is one reason
for its tremendous popularity, and you'll love
the way it stands up underwear and tear! It's in
brown and white or black and white.

We conducted a polI*of '41 graduates to find out:


Here are the results:
1. TRAINING. On the average; college graduates who
came with General Electric in 1941 have taken between
three and four Company-run training courses. Some have
taken as many as seven. These have included courses in
business management and accounting, in sales, manufac-
turing, and in many phases of engineering. Graduates re-
port that this training has been a big help in furthering
their careers. As one' expressed it: "These courses are
essential to certain fields of endeavor-so essential I am
still signing up for additional courses.P
Other comments: "These programs are not the purely
academic ones of school days. They are practical, interest-
ing, enable one to do a better job and enjoy it more.:N
"The G-E Sales Training Program was definitely instru-
mental in helping me find my present position.r The train-
ing programs have been a very essential link between my
college training and my present work.:1 "I wish I could
have known then how valuable these courses were going
to be later.:r "They confirmed my original opinion that
G.E. offered the best training for engineers.:i
2. EXPERIENCE. These graduates have had an average
of three different rotating assignments in various phases
of-the Company's work. A typical example included assign-
ments in radio test, in motors and generators, and in the
industrial control development laboratory. Graduates ex-

press three main benefits derived from the G-E rotational
job programs:
a. They provided opportunities for deciding on a defi-
nite field of interest. Typical comment: "I didn't know
what kind of work I wanted to do. Rotating assignments
helped me make up my mijd..
b. They complemented college training with practical
experience. "They helped me realize methods of manu-
facture and testing of different apparatus.'t
c. They provided valuable associations and contacts.
"Changing jobs five times brought me a variety of friends
and contacts I'm still grateful for."
reported that they felt their progress in General Electric
has been satisfactory. Nine per cent described their progress
as "average, so-so,"' with three per cent reporting "un-
Comments: "It's been no Horatio Alger success story;
but I feel pretty good about it.,' "If next 10 years have
the same trend, will be very happy.: "Satisfactory and
entirely fair."N "I don't know anyone on the outside who
has done any better in the same time.: "Satisfactory.
I've been a G-E salesnian, field engineer, and am now
group leader in a G-E design engineering department.;1
"I have felt like a kid in a candy story owned by his
father. There are lots of choices and his only problem is
to pickout what he likes best.'
