will remain confidential with the

"The ten points on which they are
to be graded are simple, yet inclusive," Haagensen said. "This plan
has proved successful in the College
of Engineering and has been received favorably by both students
and faculty," he added.
The bill is on a one-yetrial
basis. If successful, it may be extended in 1951 to professors teaching
lower division courses.
"The purpose of the plan Is to
help the students and teachers
alike," Haagensen said. "The student
would be helped by a more uniform
system of grading and testing and
by more Informative and interesting
lectures. The professor may gain in

Job Opportunities Worry
Prospective June Graduates

"'

Among hundreds of releases and news items received by the
Kernel during the last few weeks have lieen several pertaining to
decreased job opportunities for June graduates. We have printed
some of them, showing the approximate demand in various fields.
To date, however, we've made no suggestions as to how the shortage can he overcome.
Tle Dailv Reveille" of LSU seems to have done some research
on the subject, and recently came up with the cartoon on this
page and the following editorial:
"Graduating seniors of this year's vintage are going through
some spectacular extremes to sell their wares as potential "employees, a recent newspaper article tells us.
"One student advertised his abilities on a billl)oard near East
Lansing. Mich. Another dreamed up a miniature newspaper, its
headlines screaming that 'Ed English hits lalwr market,' with

the theme that it would Ik? profitable to hire the applicant, who
would bring dollars to the company.
"Perhaps the most rash of all tliese promises was that of a
California student who wrote prospective employers that he was
"ready to leave the city, state, country or planet for a whack at
regular employment.
"From all reports, though, it's going to take tactics such as
these and a lot more to crash the lalxr market this year.
"CIO President Philip Murray recently said that the country
is only '316,(K)0 unemployed away from the danger mark of 5,000,-000- ,'
which doesn't exactly paint a bright picture for the millions
w hom colleges will shortly let loose to flood the market even more.
"Furthermore, according to the secretary of labor, the number'
of potential workers, which includes this year's graduating class,
is exceeding by .300.000 to 400,000 each year the number of job

openings.
"To relieve the congested situation around the entrance to
good jobs, some suggestions have been made which apply to the
college student. These include simply keeping male college stu- dents wliere they are, putting them in the army for two years,
and reviving the CCC camps.
"The first of these, of course, would indeed delight the nation's
colleges, most of which are just now recovering from the weight
of tle war's influx of students. The second would please the stu-- ,
dent who has been working toward an independent life of his own,
Sam's army for a couple
. only to find himself chucked into Uncle

White House who doesn't seem to know red ink from black.
"Any way the college student looks at it, his is not going to be
a happy lot coijie June. But even at that he will probably have

Some of the methods which have already been tried are quite
ingenious, and the suggested methods may have some value. Most
of us would rather take our cliances in the cold, cruel world
for four or more years already, contrary
(where many have
to commencement speakers' beliefs ) when the day comes to doff
. cap and gown.
All is not lost, however, so long as prospective graduates re-- .
