8TUDENT8 CAPABBLE OF WORK

ESTIMATED AT $117,800 THIS YEAR
EMPLOYMENT BUREAU ACCUMU
Arthur M. East 8howa that Over Fifty
Per Cent of the Students
Shortly after the oponlng of school
this fall an omploymont bureau In
chargo of tho stato unlvorslty Y. M. C.
A. was established, and besides tho
work which has been accomplished in
securing omployinont for tho men of
tho unlvorslty, data has boon compiled
showing a largo percentage of tho
men of tho school arc wage earners
whllo they are registered In tho unl
vorslty. ' Arthur M. East of Fremont has had
chargo of this work and ho has made
his report regarding tho men and their
outsldod utles. Tho data which ho
has accumulated shows that tho male
students of tho unlvorslty will earn
during tho school year, from Soptom
bor to Juno, $98,720 In cash. Besides
this, thoy will earn $19,080 In board
and room rent, which will mako a
total of $117,800. This Is an estimate
and figures will bo made exact within
a short time.
Tenth Man Interviewed.
These figures wore complied as fol
lows: From tho list of students at the
university, every tenth man was In
torvlowed. Ho waB asked to calculate
his earnings for this year by what he
was earning at tho proBent tlmo, .by
what ho earned last year and what ho
mtiBt get to remain In school. Tho
minimum and not tho maximum of tho
statement of each man was taken.
Tho- roport of Mrf EaBt-4sasfol-Iowb:
"Out of 1,450 mqn on the city cam
pus, 145 men wore Interviewed. Seventy-five
out of tho 145 were working
and will earn this school year $9,872.
Seventeen of these mon earn their
board and two men their room for
nlno months. Placing board at $3 per
week of tho soventeon mon, and room
rent at $4 nor month for tho two men,
wo havo $l,90t oarned through board
and room, besides $9,872 In cash.
Assuming, that by taking every tenth
man according to his college, wo have
a fair average. Tho 1,450 men will
oarn $98,720 In cash, and $19,080
through board and room, or a total of
$117,000. SInco this roport does not
includq students registered at t he
stato farm or school of music, but only
thoBO at tho city campuB, this Is con
sidered a low estimate of the earnings
of Nobraslca. men.
Over 50 Per Cent Work.
"Tho above statement proves to us
that over 50 per cent of our students
find It necessary to oarn part or all
of their expenses. This fact shows
the great Importance of the employ
ment bureau, and tho possibilities
which lay bofono it. Tho official re
port of tho committee on employment
for students at Columbia university,
whoro a full tlmo secretary is em
ployed, shows that tho BtudentB at
that school havo earned tho following
during school yeaci
1907-08, $ 95,855.00.
1908-09, $100,223.36. ' '
"If ono stops to think that the Co
lumbia atudonts have New York city
In which to earn their $166,777.49,
while tho Nebraska students find it
necessary to mako $117,800 in the
much Bmaller cltyof Lincoln, does it
not show tho greater Tneed of Nebras
ka students for self-nelp and tho ne
cessity of an employment bureau
which can Hocato every available
place open to student work?
A Change Would Be Loss.
"At tho meeting of the association
of state universities at Washington,
D. C, in November, a discussion arose
whethor a location of a university in
a,small business locality or at.a short
distance from a city would handicap
tho self-supporting students or jhln'dei
any great number from attending
Chancellor Avery statethat270 mon
In Nebraska university were able: to
earn $33,935, partly through board,
because" "the unlvorslty was located
near thd usl'n6B section df Lincoln",
but that through tho conditions of
their work these 270 mon would bo
compelled- to withdraw from school If
tho university wero located as far dis
tant jib tho stato farm grounds, oven
though connected to tho city by good
strcot car service
"Tho employment department is
mailing a blank letter to all university
men upon which thoy may keep accu
rate account of their earnings and re
port tho same at, tho end of tho year.
It is of great service to tho bureau to
havo students report tho amount of
their earnings and tho form of their
employment. On tho basis of these
reports it is possible to give intelligent
answers to hosts of inquiries that
como from prospective students about
tho possibilities of self help. Actual
figures as to what students havo
really accomplished help far more
than a hazy or over-estimated gener
alities. The co-operation of all stu
dents 1b very necessary in order that
tho employment department render
tho most effective service. Any sug
gestions that will bo of service to the
department and of its' problems will bo
