Providing information about po-
sitions in public and private

positions in business organiza-
tions, the Bureau holds a weekly
meeting for all student job seek-
ers from 1 to 5 p.m. on alternate
Wednesdays and Thursdays in Rm.
3-A of the Union.
The bureau sent out about'
1,000 letters to various resorts,
camps and businesses, replies'
and requests for employees were
received from about 300 camps,'
100 resorts and 250 business or-

set-up offers the student a maxi-
mum amount of freedom in pick-.

In many other institutions sum-

dent coming into the office and re-

Finally there is the simple rea-
son of just wanting something to
do during summer vacation.
Many students work, not because
of financial need, but just to
break even and yet have a good
time doing it.

consists of registration with the

The weekly sessions start yearly
at the beginning of February and
continue until classes end.
Job positions, with letters and
requirements stated by the pros-
pective employers, are divided
into camps, resorts and business.
Camps are further divided into
girls, boys and coed camps and into
sectional divisions including the
East, Mid-West, West, Michigan,
South, South West, North West
and Canada.
Counselors are needed for var-
ied situations including working at
a camp for the blind in the Green
Mountains and in camps for emo-
tionally disturbed children.
Special groups such as the Sal-
vation Army, Veterans of Foreign
Wars, Young Men's and Women's
Christian Association, Camp Fire
Girls, Boy and Girl Scouts and the
Herald Tribune Fresh Air Camp,
also are among the employers look-
ing for counselors.
Some camps are in need for
registered nurses, while a Cana-
dian camp provides transporta-
tion costs, laundry expenses,
room, board and salary.
The Bureau. stresses that there
is an announcement in the Daily
Official Bulletin of employers hold-
ing interviews. At this time it is
true especially of camps.
Resorts are also divided sec-
tionally to facilitate students
looking for the "right" job.
Summer training programs are
included in the jobs available for
those interested in business.
These training programs are
becoming one of the ways indus-
try is trying to procure good in-
dustrial talent. Industries feel
that it pays dividends to have
the prospective permanent em-
ployee become more familiar
with the particular industry.
Especially true in engineering
and science, summer time manage-
ment training programs are aimed
at producing junior executives aft-
er graduation.
Technical and non-technical
jobs are represented and again are
divided sectionally.
Beside its Summer Placement
Division, the Bureau of Appoint-
ments provides other services for
students looking for jobs.

A traditional part of the cere-
mony of initiation, which is held
in the League Chapel, is the yel-
low ribbon upon which appears
the names of all members of
Senior Society since its founding
in 1906.
The old members hold this rib-
bon and form the letter "S." The
new initiates also form a "S"
standing next to the old members.
At the conclusion of the cere-
mony the ribbon is wound up; the
winding of the ribbon symbolizing
the fellowship between all mem-
bers, past and present.
MEMBERSHIP in the group has
always been limited to independ-
ent senior women and has, for
most of the years of its existence,
been based upon scholarship, lead-
ership in activities, service and
contributions to the University
Nominations for membership
were originally proposed by the
members, but in recent years
they have been obtained by ask-
ing leaders in campus activities
for recommendations.
The candidates' scholastic aver-
age are then checked, for mem-
bers must have an over-all aver-

each spring and fall.
