Placement By Board
H H cjj
Staff Writer
There is more of a demand for
well-trained college graduates in
business and industry today than
the University is able to supply.
This statement was made by
Dean J. P. Colbert, dean of stu
dent affairs and chairman of the
Board of Occupational Placement.
The function of this board yj to
place graduating seniors in out
standing jobs throughout the coun
try. As Dean Colbert said, "Our
Philosophy, .like that of many oth
er colleges and universities, is
that in higher education, we must
not only discharge the duties and
obligations to the students until
they get a degree, but also must
help them make the transition
from the University to employ
He observed that the demand is
co great today because there are
fewer young people available to
fill the jobs. Abundance of env
ployment opportunities is expect'
cd to continue until 1960.

for the purpose of encouraging
scholarship in the humanities. The
year grants are for $5,000 and
the half-year grants for $2.50.
Dr. Pfeiler will take a semester
leave Feb. 1, 1956, to write a book

Dr. Alden plans to take a semes
ter leave starting Sept. 1, 1955, to
visit a number of libraries and
. archives and to write a history of
tha South in the American Revo
lutionary War.

To Convention
Eleven University students at
tended the Mid-west Dormitory
Conference April 15-16 in Columbia,
Representing the University were
Ruth Vollmer, Eleanor VonBargen,
Marjeanne Jensen and Jackie Kil
zer from the Residence Halls for
Women; Don Besom, Vic Musil,
Ed Eemble, Varro Clarke, Ken
Ilif iske, Doug Jensen and Lowell
Vestal from Selleck Quadrangle.
Although the functions of the
Board of Occupational Placement
are highly important, most stu
dents are unaware of this service
the prospect of getting a job is
near at hand.
Actually, this board performs
an extensive service to Univer
sity students. Board members in
elude representatives from the va
rious colleges on the campus.
They handle relations with firms
who desire to send personnel man
agers or other members of their
company to the University to in
terview seniors.
The work of the Occupational
Placement Board begins when a
company representative writes for
an appointment to come to the
campus. These visits may start
as early as Oct. 14. The dates
of the representatives' visits are
kept on a calendar in Dean Col
bert's office. The fact that two
such appointments are usually
scheduled five days a week from
October until June is indicative
of the size of this program.
. Some companies who w a n t
graduates in only one field con
tact that particular college direct
ly. However, the majority inter
view students of different colleges
and these interviews are handled
by the Board. Last year 165 or
ganizations were granted inter
views by the Board. Dean Col-j
bert estimated that altogether over
200' companies sent reprentatives
to the campus last year.
Organizations that participate in
the program Include the General
Electric Corporation, Bell Tele
phone Co., R.C.A., United States
Steel, Chrysler Corporation," Colgate-Palm
Olive Co., Sunbeam Ap
pliance Co., Quaker Oats Co., and
Eastman Kodak Co.
Allis-Chalmers, John Deere Co,

Notice Posted
After an appointment is made
for the company official to come
to the campus, board members
post notices on campus bulletin
prior to the visit. If a student
boards . approximately two weeks
is interested in the organization,
he is able to go to 209 Admins
tration Hall to look through a
brochure published by that com
These brochures explain the ben-
efits, salaries and opportunities
for advancement in addition to list
ing the jobs available. Many bro
chures contain descriptions of the
cities in which company plants
are located. The organizations
are anxious that prospective em

mean anything In occupational
placement. "The answer is yes,"
he said. But he pointed out that
personnel managers do not hire
for scholarship alone; they want
someone who will be an asset to
their company.
They do, however, ask for a
student's average. Most company
representatives are most interest
ed in a student who has done welel
in college. They believe that if a
student is interested in his ca
reer, he will denyx himself a few
good times in order to achieve
good grades. This type of
person will be an asset to any
Provisions For Women
"It is not difficult to place wom
en in important jobs today," said
a on
Dean Colbert. He added that many
large companies make special pro
visions for women employees.
Companies such as Braniff and
United Air Lines send represen
tatives to the campus to inter
view women students for positions
as hostesses.
He observed that In some oc
cupations, "it is still difficult for
women to advance at the same
rate as men," but added that this
is not true in all instances.
He stressed the fact that it is
possible to place students in all
types of occupations, but said that
the greatest demand today is for
graduates in the fields of engi
neering, chemistry, physics, math
ematics, business administration
and geology.

Custodians To Acquire
Dog For Blind Veteran
Staff Writer
Wanted: the assistance of the
University students in gathering a
bushel of red strips gained from
packages of a 1 1 brands of cigarettes.
This red strip fund has been in
stigated on the campus by the
Union custodians in an effort to
acquire a seeing eye dog for a
disabled veteran at the Omaha
Veteran's Hospital.
The partially blind veteran who
was injured in the Korean War
has been hospitalized in Omaha
for the past two years. His in
jury was inflicted while a mem
ber of the parachute infantry in
the 82ndAirborne Division.
Interest in the veteran was
gained through a union employee,
who was the platoon ser gear t of the
82nd Airborn Division. For the
past month the ex-sergsant and two
other members of tha division have
been collecting the red strips.
Up to date the custodians and
friends of the disabled veteran
have gathered eight pounds of
the valuable strips, but approxi
mately seven additional pounds are
needed to fill the bushel basket.
The required 15 pounds will be sent
to the leading tobacco manufactur
er who will exchange the strips for
the seeing eye dog.
Money for a harness and other
equipment for the dog has already
been collected through the mem
bers of the 82nd Division.
Students interested in contribut
ing to the land may deposit their
red strips in the container placed
in circulation boxes at the Union.
