PROF. M3cKliBEN rTOURS COUNTRY
TO SECURE STUDENTS FOR
Bethlehem, Pa., March 9.----Prof. F
P. McKibbeu, head of the civil engine
eering department of Lehigh univer-
sity, and at present a representative of
the United States emergency fleet cor-
poration, has just returned from an
8,000 mile trip extending to the Pacific
coast. This is the second phase of his
campaign to interest college students
in shipyard work both for the summer
period and for employment after grad-
Since January 1, Prof. McKibben has
given about sixty talks at institutions
in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, "West
Virginia, and California. As one de-
finite result some 1,200 students have
already enrolled for summer and post-
Lectures at California Colleges
While in California, Professor Mc-
Kibben lectured at the University of
California, Berkeley; the Leland
Stanford Jr., university, Palo Alto; the
University of Southern California, Los
Angeles; Throop College of Technol-
ogy, Pasadena; the Pasadena high
school, and the Engineers' club in Los
Angeles. Upon invitation of Dr. J. A.
B. Scherer, president of Throop Col-
lege of Technology, Prof. McKibben
gave two weeks to a series of 24 lec-
tures before the entire student body
at Throop, presenting in concentrated
'form the course in shipbuilding and
ocean transportation now taken by
senior students in civil engineering at
Prof. McKibben will start in a few
days on a third series of college lec-
tures, including fourteen institutions
in New York state, followed by visits
to colleges in Virgin, West Virginia,
North Carolina and South Carolina.
U. S. Wants 200,000 Men
The appeal of the United States
shipping board is for 200,000 men to
help win the war by work in ship-
yards and ship terminals,-technical
men, artisans and laborers. "The gov-
ernment does not want to take work-
ers from munitions plants," Professor
McKibben states, "none, in fact, from
essential occupations and places.
Others who can serve best in the ship-
yards are wanted. That is why the
government is encouraging study of
shipbuilding, ship transportation, for-
eign exchange and all subjects related
to shipping and building. Appeals are
mage to college juniors and seniors to
enlist for shipyard employment when
they have finished college. Many are
enrolling for work during the sum-
mer vacation and this includes instruc-
tors as well as students."
