NEW EMPLOYMENT BUREAU AT
CALIFORNIA AIDS GRADUATES
Berkeley, Cal., March 7.-With the
establishment of a college employment
bureau by the alumni association of
the University of California, a prac-
tical step has been taken to insure
college graduates of work in which
they have specialized.
This branch of alumni activity will
not be confined to the strictly busi-
ness courses in business administra-
tion, but it will also embrace the field
of professional work and engineering.
Letters have already been sent to all
the members of the senior classes, and
many have accepted positions.
Together with the alumni bureau of
employment there is also an informa-
tion exchange, in which the outgoing
classes can secure the advice and
judgment of business men, concerning
those lines of work for which they are

I!TES SUPPORT OF PRESIDENT
Columbus, O., Mar. 7.-- Comparing
the present situation to the one exist-
ing before the Spanish war, President
Thompson of Ohio State university to-
day told the freshman cadets that is
was their bounden duty to stand by
President Wilson in the present crisis.
In his address, President Thompson,
declared that the White House is not
rushing us into war, but that President
Wilson is merely waiting, as was
President McKinley prior to the break
with Spain. In this opinion, he believes
that the delay is merely to concentrate
a munition, and that the government
is preparing for any eventualities that
