By Lorna Larson
If you’re looking -for a perman

Office ?
The placement service cannot
guarantee jobs to students, but it
can put them in touch with oppor
tunity, says Karl W. Onthank, di
rector of graduate placement. Em
ployers with openings contact the
office and, in turn, the office con
tacts students who have made ap
“Placement interviews” of appli
• cants are conducted by Onthank to
discuss students’ aims and plans.
He can help students discover, or
ganize and use their own resources
in securing a suitable position.
The placement office serves as a
“home base” for graduates and stu
dents. References and recommen
dation may be secured there, and
placement workers keep in contact
with students even after they leave
the campus. Calls for graduates
with experience often come in
from employers.
Occupation opportunities open
to University students and grad
uates are listed in the office and
news of openings is given to the
Oregon Daily Emerald for publica
tion. A bulletin board with infor
mation of job opportunities is also

Art Prof to Show Slides,
Speak at Browsing Room
Mark Sponenburgh, assistant
professor of art, will talk on the
“Stone Calvaries of Brittany” as
part of the Ethel R. Sawyer Brows
ing Room Hour today from 4 to 5
p. m. He will illustrate his speech
with slides.
Last summer Sponenburgh spent
several days of a two month vaca
tion on an art pilgrimage touring
the stone calvaries. They are relig
ious monuments of the ancient
Gaelic culture of sixth century
Brittany. Brittany is located in
Western F'rance.
“The monuments are most unus
ual in that nothing in the world can
compare with them in design and
style. They are products of a civli
zation which lias been quite sepa
rated from France,” he declared.
Sponenburgh stated that he has
studied and has had an interest in
the stone sculptures for some time.
He added that mystery and mysti
cism have always encircled these
architectural structures and the
strange ways of the civilization in
which they were created.
Speaking of his Brittany art
tour, he stated that the means of
transportation were walking, rid
ing, and hitch-hiking and even rides
on oxcarts were not uncommon ex

Insurance Dividends Deducted
To Pay on Veterans' Debts
Veterans owing money to the
government may find that all or
part of their share of the forth
coming special dividend payment
of the National Service Life In
surance have been deducted to
cover their debts, the Veterans Ad
ministration reported Monday.
This will apply to veterans who
owe the government money as the
result of overpayments on subsis
tence allowances or other benefits
or defaults on loans guaranteed by
the Administration.
The Veterans Administration es
timated that between 20 and 30
million dollars may be collected
from these dividends.
Some 600,000 veterans are cur
rently indebted for a total of about
70 million dollars. The bulk of this
amount constitutes overpayments
on subsistence allowances for vet
erans taking education courses un
der the GI bill.
Many veterans are repaying in
debtedness by having deductions
made from their monthly checks.
When the overpayment is wiped
out, as it may be by the dividend
deduction, there will be no further
