KAISER ALUMINUM
is looking for men who want to grow!

FOR YOUNG MEN who have ability and are anxious to
assume responsibilities, a career with Kaiser Aluminum
& Chemical Corporation offers an unusual opportunity.
Kaiser Aluminum is a young but stable corporation,
among the nation's largest producers of primary alu-
minum, with 24 plants and facilitiesin operation or
under construction.
Since entering the. aluminum business in 1946,
Kaiser Aluminum has continually expanded its facili-
ties for making primary metal as well as fabricated
products.
Yet, to keep pace with the unlimited future markets
for aluminum, more expansion will be necessary. This
will require not only more physical plants but more

people who can step into management positions.
As a result, we are looking for exceptional young
men who want unlimited opportunities for advance-
ment and self-improvement.
As we expand, ambitious young men of ability at
Kaiser Aluminum will rapidly advance to responsible
positions in management, planning, production super-
vision, technical and sales supervision.
But our rapid expansion is only one of the reasons
why your opportunities are great at Kaiser Aluminum.
The complete story is told in the 32-page booklet, "Your
Opportunity with Kaiser Aluminum." Get your copy at
your college placement office now.
