Someone with "grocery back ground" may inquire about becom ing a combination retail salesman and jobbing man for a major food plant. Hillsboro needs a librarian. These are a few of the calls firms from the outside world are sending to June graduates of the Univer sity. Seniors may start finding their niche in the world by registering at the Graduate Placement Service in Emerald hall. "Do it now,” the ser vice requests. "The best jobs are taken before June.” Future employers will visit the campus between May 17 and May 24. They will be looking for chem ists, outstanding BA graduates, and sales trainees.

The list is much longer. But a senior's best bet is to leave his cre dentials in the placement office— for future reference, if he needs no help now. Vets Exempt From ROTC Under New Faculty Decision War Danger 'Grows Daily/ Meyer Warns By James Knight Danger of war grows daily be cause the world armament race is breeding international suspicion and fear. That’s what Cord Meyer, presi dent of the United World Federal ists, told 500 persons at Roosevelt junior high scchool last night. “We live in a world where mili tary power is the price for surviv al, he said. “The armament race is the inevitable consequence of competing states.” The present foreign policy of the United States is a “great prepon derance of military power.” The United States is internally rearm ing, giving economic and military aid to potential allies, and econom ically boycotting potential ene mies. “I personally believe it is nec essary today that we do these things,” Meyer said, “because se rious disputes cannot be settled by law or a police force—there is none.” “The United World Federalists support the United Nations as a first step, but others have to be taken quickly. The best way to support it is to understand its weak points and take steps to correct them.” The weaknesses of the U.N., as Meyer pointed them out are: 1. The necessity for the Security Council to have the unanimous votes of the Big Five. 2. No world court. 3. No international police force. The minimum powers necessary to weld the U.N. into a strong, unified body, according to the UWF pla'tforrm, are: 1. Power to precent and pro hibit the use of the threat of war. 2. Regulation and control of na tional armed forces. 3. A world court with compul sory jurisdiction. 4. Power and law to raise rev enue by taxing national govern ments. With a strong w’orld govern ment, and freedom from fear, we could use our vast resources constructively,” Meyer said. “Another war would be suicidal and destructive for Russia as well as the United States. “If Russia won’t go along with (Plecse turn to page two) Health, P.E. Will Be Required; New Advisory Council Elected ROTC training was waived for veteran students at the facul ty meeting yesterdaj'. Physical and health education credits will still be required of men entering the service after March 31, 1949. This action changes part of the motion to abolish the grant ing of health, physical education and military science credits to men entering the service after March 31, 1949, passed April 13 by the facultv. i —-— uy tue taculty. By yesterday’s action, no! credits in military science will be given veteran students, but they will be exempted from tak ing the course. Col. F. R. Maerdian, head of the military science department had said before the meeting that such exemption would not greatly affect the size of the ItOTC since the number of veteran students is diminishing. No official vote was taken on the ROTC question, according to Paul Civin, assistant professor of mathe matics and author of the motion, since agreement was almost unan imous. A new advisory council was elected by the faculty. It will assist President Harry K. Newburn in making decisions that involve ac ademic policy. Elected were: W. C. Ballantine, professor of business administration. Calvin Crumbaker, head of the economic department. R. R. Huestis, professor of zool ogy. E. L. Johnson, dean of the col lege of liberal arts. S. W. Little, dean of the school of architecture and allied arts. Hoyt Trowbridge, professor of English. A proposal to let graduate stu dents take courses for graduate credit at fewer hours than arc list ed for the course was defeated.
