"I don't know of any field that has fewer openings than it has qualified college graduates," he said. "There is keen competition to get able people everywhere you go." Although certain fields such as engineering have received publicity for their inability to fill personnel demands, this probem is shared in almost every other field, he said. The need for qualified personnel has attracted many out-of-state employ ers to the Placement Of fice, he said, in addition to in-state firms. Hallgren discounted the possibility of a state "brain drain," saying "you can't expect people to stay In the ' state if they can't use their training." He pointed out, "any Ne- Physicist To Speak At Sigma Xi A leading American physicist and inventor, Dr. Robert H. Dicke of Prince ton University, will deliver the annual Sigma Xi Na tional Lecture Nov. 3 at 8 p.m. in the lecture room of Brace Laboratory. Dr. Dicke will speak on the subject, "Einstein's Theory of Gravitation Fifty Years Later." Holding over 50 patents fti microwaves and atomic resonance devices, his most recent research at Prince ton has been primarily on gravitation, relativity and cosmology. His lecture is expected to include a discussion of re cent observations effecting the understanding of gravi tation as the weakest, most universal, and primitive of the physical interactions. Dr. Dicke is the Cyrus doff Brackett Professor of Physics at Princeton. His appearance is sponsored by Sigma Xi and its affiliated society, the Scientific Re search Society of America. Day . . . i .

Some Nebraska employ ers could use a more ag gressive hiring approach in seeking University grad uates, he added. .The primary function of his office, Hallgren said, is to help students make plans about what they want to do after they graduate. To aid students in making post-graduate plans the of fice runs a year-long busi ness Interview service and maintains an extensive library of materials about various graduate colleges and employers. "A central placement of fice gives people from business and industry an op portunity to interview peo ple from a variety of disci plines," Hallgren said. Last year over 1000 rep resentatives of 700 .business firms, industries, govern ment agencies and other in stitutions held interviews through the University of fice, he pointed out.

Over 1000 stu dents made use of the ser vice last year, Hallgren ex plained. The Placement Library in cludes an extensive collec tion of current graduate and professional catalogues, in addition to a variety of brochures from employers and employment programs. The office also aids stu dents in securing summer internships in fields related t. to their majors. These pro grams range from place ment in leading national newspapers to jobs in the engineering industries. Hallgren stressed the need for students to investi gate post-graduate pro grams early in their senior year. He said many job ap plications and graduate school tests have an early due date and Placement in terviews begin in early Oc tober. Men who anticipate ful filling their military obliga tion upon graduation are encouraged to interview anyway, he said. the lost purchase 1968 Exchange Students Visiting Campus Like Nebraskans' Friendly Concern About 20 University stu dents and faculty members took advantage of an oppor tunity to talk with 11 visit ing students from El Co legio de Mexico during an informal tea held in the Un ion Tuesday.

Flickering lights, out moded films and dropped parachutes will give the dance the proper psychede lic atmosphere, he added. The Fabulous Rumbles will play for the dance.

She is an international relations student at El Colegio who is making her first visit to the United States. "Unlike my visit to New York, I don't feel like a tourist here in Nebraska," Miss Blanca said. While here she said that she is experiencing a great er degree of direct contact with the people. Students at El Colegio have chances to meet American students through the school's exchange pro gram. "In Mexico I usually find that I meet two kinds of Americans, the tourists and the students," Miss Blanca said. "I tend to like the stu dents more than the tour ists because they seem in terested in the traditions and customs of Mexico in addition to seeing the sights," she commented. After she graduates from El Colegio, Miss Blanca would like to attend grad uate school in a foreign country s.uc'i as the United States or France. One main difference she observed between the Uni versity and El Colegio is mMm:l .;.N .. . J --KV' Vlr-K; m MM v M'x 1 f ' V r , :i f I J, the University's greater size. At a smaller school such as El Colegio the students are able to have a much greater contact with the in structors. "Most of our classes are conducted on the seminar basis, and members of the faculty are always avail- able for consultation," she observed. El Colegio student Carlos Maldonado said that he thought Nebraskans re flected the image of real Americans. He said that Nebraskans' friendly concern and sin cerity was the embodiment of the American image to him. "One of the striking things about the University is the way the buildings are spread out. El Colegio Friday Nire Featuring The Marauders is housed in a single build. ing," Maldonado com mented. The students will leave the University Thursday for California, the last stop on their American tour. Since 1962 the University of Nebraska has partici pated in a student exchange program with El Colegio de Mexico. So far 19 NU stu dents have attended. Although no NU students are presently participat ing in the 11-month pro gram, five attended last year. El Colegio de Mexico, one of the most progressive centers of higher education . in the Western Hemisphere, boasts outstanding depart ments of economics, linguis tics, and international relations.
