Are Also Investigated;
School Studies Are Aid
Guidance, p e r s o n n e 1 research,
placeient of teachers, placement of
poeple in the business world, and per-
sonnel study of alumni are the five
functions of the Bureau of Appoint-
ments and occupational Informa-
tion, declared Dr. T. L-uther Purdom,
director, before the 4 o'clock educa-
tion conference yesterday.-
"Tle Bureau," he asserted, "de-
sires to furnish to any and all stu-
dents information concerning the
various occupations, dealing with the
opportunities in money, in promo-
tion, and in which to render service.
Aid Outside Students
"We also wish to assist those who
come to the office on problems of per-
sonal adjustment, not only students
on campus, but those who come to
us with their problems from any
school system. A good number of
individuals are brought to the office
every month by some school prin-
cipal or people in the state who have
heard of the services we are trying
t, render.'
In order that the University,
through this bureau, may continue
t render service of the most funda-
mental importance, the bureau has
been working in two or three high
schools each year, studying what are
the dilerences between the success-
ful and unsuccessful people, and to
what extent corrections can be made
in order that a transfer can be made
from an unsuccessful to a successful
student. This 'is being done, Dr. Pur-
dmin pointed out, free of charge, in
oder to keep in contact with the
actual school problems and be better
a xleto deal withi students coming
to the bureau.
Many Bring Problgms
"It is probgbly due to this type of
Work," he sard, "that so many people
a'e brought to us concerning prob-
lens of personal adjustment."''
In speaking of placement of peo->
01e, Dr. Purdom said that somewhat
thie same procedure was followed in
connection with the placing of peo-
people in the business world as with
regard to teachers. The Bureau at-
tempts to establish contacts with as
iany of the largecorporations in
i~e United States as possible, both
by letter and by personal calls. Al-
ough the number of people placed
uis, year was less than could be de-
desired, Dr. Purdom found that the
usiness world is rather pleased with
e fact that it can find well-trained
eople to fit into their scheme, and
Lat it is not necessary for them to
nterview hundreds when they can
pet what they want by interviewing
tfhree or four.
Oblieges Consulted
Withinthe past two -months, the
bureau has written to nearly 1,500
co leges calling their attention to the
service the University renders other
institutions and also calling atten-
tion to some of its candidates who
are well prepared and available. Per-
sonal notes have also been written
to nearly 1,500 private schools.
' By this means, the Bureau at-
teBpts to establish as many contacts
as possible and, of course, to help
the individuals get placed at the
sme time, as well as building up
relations that will be of value to the
Bureau in the future.

Arizona Man
Held in Illinois
7 Other Non-Union Work-
ers Naned Accessories
In Dam Riot Case
OTTAWA, Ill., July 21.-(AP)-
Selected from among 128 prisoners,
James Collins, of Mesa, Ariz., was
blamed today by a coroner's jury for
tfie shotgun' killing that marked a
labor riot at the Marseilles govern-
ment dam.
Collins, a non-union worker on the
Illinois waterway project, was or-
dered held to the LaSalle county
grand jury on a charge of slaying
Steve Sutton unemployed union
steel worker from Joliet who with
300 others picketed the dam Tues-
day until gunfire drove them off.
Seven other out-of-state non-
union workers were held without bail
in the county jail as accessories to
the slaying after the jury's midnight
report. They were Ralph Taylor of
North Carolina, Lemar Partin, Harry
D. Paige, Leo Dale, Joseph Murray,
and Harold H. Staples of 'Louisiana,
and Olaf Huff of Minnesota. All are
employees of -the Stevens Brothers,
Miller-Hutchinson Construction Co.
of New Orleans, builders of the dam.
Officials sought to learn their home
One hundred and twenty of their
co-workers, including R. L. Miller,
member of the firm, and his son
Herbert, superintendent of the job,
were released after being held nearly
36 hours in jail.
The jury's report thpt Sutton
"came to. his death b gunshot
wounds at the hands of one James
Collins," was based on testimony of
William J. Shirley, a Joliet unionist,
who said he saw Collins fire the 50
or 00 slugs which hit Sutton in the
heart and lungs.

Last Man Convenes for Last
Session of 'Last Man's (ub'



2:00-3 :40-7:00-9:00

STILLWATER, Vinn., July 21.-
(AP)-Keeping faith with its tradi-
tion, the Last Man's club, reduced by
deaths to one survivor, rallied today
for probably the last time.
Tonight in the presence of 3
chairs draped sin black set about a
table whose centerpiece will be a
bottle of rare old Burgundy wine,
Capt. Charles Lockwood of Cham-
berlain, S. D., the survivor, will call
the roll of *he 34 members of the
Though Lockwood expects to live
many more years, he admits the an-
nual visit without the cheering pres-
ence of his Civil war comrades of
Coppany B, First Minnesota infan-
try, is becoming more of a task each
July 21. Last winter he was ill for
several months. He intends to be
more car-eful of his health.
So, after he carries out the club
ritual tonight, he may close up the
records forever.
Following the roll call Lockwood

companions of the first battle of
Bull Run, fought July, 21, 1961-in
water. The wine, set aside at the
first reunion of the veterans in 1885,
fulfilled its destiny in 1930 when for
the first time Lockwood met alone.
That was soon after the -funeral of
his old friend, Peter Hall of Atwater,
Minn., "the next to the last man."
The beverage was designated in 1885
as the toast drink for the last sur-

because Lockwood has no fondness
for it and partly because he wants

But he brought a little vial with
him and he expects to fill it from the
bottle as he did in 1930. Last spring
on a visit to Washington he showed
it to President Hoover and a girl'
reporter.' Liter he discovered the
vial was empty.
"I know that the President didn't
drink any of it but I can't tell about
that girl," he laughed.
