College
Round-upn
After having to deny admission
to 500 women students because
(f lack of housing, the University
of Illinois has begun long range
planning of the problem.
A six year program calls for
the building of 8,662 new living
spaces at a cost of 36 million dol-
lars. Included in the plans are a
new "cluster" of men's residence
halls consisting of six dormitories
and two separate dining halls.
The Daily Illini has criticized
the administration for "lack of
foresight." Despite the plans, con-
struction has failed to keep on
schedule and is now six months
behind.
The Colorado Daily reports that
"the weaker sex is not so weak
when it comes to brain power."
The grade average of all women
on the Colorado campus was 2.4
compared to 2.2 for the men.
Other statistics - seniors aver-
aged 2.7, freshmen 2.1 while a 2.4
average was gained by foreign stu-
dents. The overall average for un-
dergraduates was 2.3.

Cornell University plans to open
a new scholarship dorm in the fall,
the Cornell Daily reports.
This Tudor style house, accom-
modating 30 men, will contain a
large living room, dining facilities
and recreation room, in addition
to living quarters.
In lieu of a scholarship, men
will be assigned to the house. They
should be able to save about 300
dollars on living costs.
Turmoil reigned in the UCLA
gym "as an unidentified young
woman momentarily entered the
- men's locker room. "
The Daily Bruin comments that
"she then proceeded to a bench
in back of the building where she
passed out a list of women's names
and addresses to the surrounding
crowd amid a great deal of con-
fusion and comment.
"This woman's motives are quite
subject to question," the campus
police chief commented.
Honorary Sets
Panel on Jobs
Theta Sigma Phi, national hon-
orary fraternity for women in
journalism and the Detroit Alum-
ni Chapter are sponsoring a jobs

A PHYSICIST AT IBM?"
Five years ago, college senior Nick Hemmer asked himself this question.
Today, as Administrative Assistant to the Quality Control manager, Nick
reviews his experience at IBM and gives some pointers that may be helpful
to you in taking the first, most important step in your career as a physicist.

COLD DAY?
1A# AGUARIGHr)
l EEp - '

CALENDAR says it's spring ... but it ain't necessarily
so. The freezin' season may still come up with one last
blast. And when that happens, your cigarette smoke
makes a mighty Crisp Wisp! Of course, with Luckies,
you can forget the weather. Luckies taste fine all year
round-and no wonder! A Lucky is all cigarette.. .
nothing but fine, mild, good-tasting tobacco that's
TOASTED to ,taste even better. Forecast: You'll say
Luckies are the best-tasting cigarette you ever smoked!

"I wastremendouslyimpressed,"says
Nick, "by my first plant tour. When
you go through the facilities-meet
the men and get an idea of the prob-
lems they handle-you can't help but
become interested. Add the friendly,
informal work atmosphere, and you
know right off the bat these people
have a story to tell."
Nick came to IBM in 1951 with a
B.S. in physics. He started as a Tech-
nical Engineer-in Test Equipment
Engineering-working on an analog
bombing system. When that project
moved from the Endicott to the
Poughkeepsie plant, Nick followed it,
becoming first an Associate Engineer,
then a Project Engineer. As the lat-

tion of alloys ... or of the properties
of metals, such as the resistivity of
germanium. Then, there are the im-
portant 'analysis of failure' and
reliability studies, in which you seek
to determine, for example, the 'life

tration and concentricity of colloidal
solutions?" "Present a job in terms
of actual problems," believes Nick,
"and you'll get the man's interest-
for it's his career and his future that
have top priority."
Now about further study?
Nick has taken full advantage of
IBM's extensive educational facilities
to get ahead at IBM. He took at least
one course each semester on subjects
within his immediate work area-,
courses on digital and analog come
puters and on their components such
as cores and transistors. He found
time to take management courses as
well. "If you want opportunity for
study," Nick says, "IBM will provide
all you want."

By November, '55, Nick was head-

moted to Administrative Assistant to
the Quality Control manager, Nick

Promotion almost inevitable
Asked about opportunities for ad-
vancement at IBM, Nick says, "The
situation could hardly be better in
that respect. With sales doubling
every five years on the average, pro-
motion is almost inevitable."
IBM hopes that this message will help to
give you some idea of what it's like to be
a physicist at IBM. There are equal op-
portunities for E.E.'s, M.E.'s, mathema-
ticians and Liberal Arts majors in IBM's
many divisions-Research, Manufactur-
ing Engineering, Sales and Technical
Services. Why not drop in and discuss
