term, 120 of them on campus, with
itiore opportunities arising each
day, revealed Shirley Sylvester,
deputy in charge of the office.
Even though a large number of
students have been placed, there is
Still a long unemployed list. Ap
proximately 400 students who want
part-time work have not yet found
it. However, these also include stu
dents' wives and others looking for
work on campus.
An average of 40 to 50 students
pass through the Employment Of
fice each day, with 81 the highest
and 27 the lowest in October.
Women are in demand largely for
office work, both on and off cam

quested for sales work, but this has
not been true yet this term.
Men find the most work in odd
jobs around Eugene homes, with
work in the “service industries”
running a close second. Miss Syl
vester defined the “service indus
tries” as dealing with restaurant,
hotel, and houseboy work.
The majority of employers re
quest people with a certain type of
training or experience, mainly the
latter, commented Miss Sylvester.

for subjects. Incidentally, the re
quest was never filled. Last year a

knows of no one registered through

hours a week.
Wages range, on the average,
from 75 cents to $1 an hour. The
campus wage-scale is set at 75
cents. Highest wages were $1.40
paid for an odd job, and the lowest,
65 cents for restaurant work. Last
year one student received $3 an
hour for serving as a city driving

Students interested in square
dancing will meet in Gerlinger An
nex to form a University square
dancing club.
Polkas, schottisches, and square
