More Positions Open
For Future Teachers
There are more teaching va
cancies and fewer instructors to
fill them now than at any time
during the last 15 years, accord
ing to Dr. Carl L. Huffaker, pro
fesosr of education. Teachers’ sal
aries have been boosted approxi
mately 10 to 17y2 per cent, he
said. The teacher placement sea
son is a month early this year.
It is, therefore, reported that
there is need for a considerable
number of students to prepare for
teaching at the present time,
particularly those prepared com
binations involving three sub
jects. Openings are now avail
able for those who have had a
minor of 24 hours in physical ed
ucation and health, a minor in
home economics, or training
comparable to a minor in music.
The placement bureau also re
ports a lesser demand for teach
ers, preferably in English or so

6 to 12 hours in library science

What’s in the Wind?
Against these terrible possi
bilities there were straws in the
wind that the United Nations
had something up their sleeves
besides cloth. Yankees arrived in
Ireland; in Australia; in unan
nounced ports of the world. Chief
of Staff Marshall announced the
beginning of offensive thinking—•
defensive thinking has failed
England was stirring with plans
for offensive action against west
earn Europe; John Bull was
through with the worn-out sopor
ific, "the aft-laid plans of mice
and men gang aft agley. . .
Instead, there was a feeling of
boldness, of impatience, of chal
lenge: Norway or Brittany must
be under consideration—the Com
mandos had felt the regions out,
British troops were being sup
planted by Yankee in Ireland.
Everything speaks eloquently
for a holding action in the Pa
cific, and a bold thrust at Ger
many's western flank . . . 1942
is the deciding year.
