Hallgren: Opportunities
Plentiful At Graduation
No student enrolled at the
University need worry
about finding employment
after graduation, according
to Frank Hallgren, Direc
tor of Placement.
"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
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

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
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.

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.

ment announcements for
the firms they are in
terested in. 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.

I sang my harp on the straps deck
Here at the water in the cool unblossomed year,
And the light notes clung at my hair roots
Like bird cries gathering.

Into lengthening shadows
And moments clung like fresh leaves
On water.

Leaving stripes and crosses
As though it rolled and cast dotn,
Cast down its shape for vision.

"Unlike my visit to New

Miss Blanca said.
While here she said that

Students at El Colegio

American students through
the school's exchange pro

that I meet two kinds of
Americans, the tourists and
the students," Miss Blanca
"I tend to like the stu
