partment, Prof. Otto Graf of the
language department, Prof. Edgar
Willis of the speech department,
Prof. Howard Ehrmann of the
history department and Miss Mil-
dred Webber of the Bureau of Oc-
cupation and Appointments.

discussion of opportunities in the
field of teaching.

SKETCHING briefly the var-
ious stages through which the
teaching of German has passed,'
Prof. Graf noted that prior tp
World War I, German was an im-
portant subject in both primary
and secondary schools, but that in
the post-war period, German al-
most disappeared from school cur-
However, since World War II
there has been a resurgence of
interest in German, largely be-
cause of the strategic import-
ance of Germany in the world-
today. The prospects for sec-
ondary school teachers in this
field are good and the prospects
for elementary school teachers
are getting better.
Prof. Willis then mentioned
some of the opportunities for

ON THE HIGH SCHOOL level,
speech is usually part of the Eng-
lish department and the speech
teacher will often teach some
courses in English, coach the de-
bating team and handle any speech
At this point in the discussion,
Miss Webber remarked that
there are always lots of oppor-
tunities for elementary school
teachers and that there is a
growing demand for high school
and college teachers in every
PROF. Ehrmann said that in the'
past 20 years there have been 13
Ph. D. degrees granted to women
at the University and that of
these 13, eight women are teaching
on the college level.
This point brought up the
question as to the relative de-
mand for men and women in
various fields, and why men are
often preferred to women.
On this question, Prof. Felheim
noted that although there b s
been a growing demand for women
in many fields, women themselves
often spoil their own chances. He
pointed out that many women
don't want to be taught by women'
and that many women aren't as
dices in some businesses againstj
women particularly in phases of
a job that requires a period of
training and apprenticeship. Oft-'
en women will start out in a job
and then get married and leave
before they have completed their
orientation to the work.
Looking into other career op-
portunities, Prof. Graf men-
tioned jobs available in the ex-
port businessbfor students with
training in business and lan-
guages, Ile also outlined the ca-
reers with government agencies
open for linguists, historians and
economists with proficiency in
a strategic language,
Winding up the conference, Prof,
Felheim stressed the need for peo-
ple with a broad cultural back-
ground and added that it was
"the general consensus of the pan-
el to congratulate you on being
