Save found employment
It is refreshing to read news that is as constructive
as that showing the employment of 80 per cent of the
211 graduates of the New York University's College of
Engineering last year. In spite of the tendency to em-
phasize unemployment, relief, pensions, etc. in the po-
litical forefront, young men and women are finding it
possible to make their way once out of school.
Of the 211 graduates from the Engineering col-
lege last year, 167 are working, 78.2 per cent. Sal-
aries and occupations vary but the main thing is
that they have found something to do.
The fact that this number of engineering graduates
has found employment indicates that much work is
being due. The job of an engineer is such that when
he works, the real result of his work usually means
work for many times as many men. This becomes a
hopeful sign not only for young men of the engineer-
ing profession but for others as well.
soviet HAS REASON AT HOME
for its PEACEFUL ROLE
New light on Soviet Russia's apparent tendency to-
ward peace is given in a recent article written by Vir-
ginia Cowles in the New York Times and coming from
London. She says at the outset that Stalin has killed
off three-fourths of all officers above the rank of colo-
nel through the "liquidation" process. Under such
conditions the directing forces of the great Soviet
army are in no way prepared for offensive warfare.
When you have 2,000,000 men under arms the officer
personnel takes on great importance. According to
Miss Cowles of eight officers who courtmartialed Mar-
shal Tukachevsky and his seven colleagues, six have
since been shot; and that when the Red army paraded
before Stalin in November, 1937, officers were not al-
lowed to carry guns in their holsters.
Obviously Russian diplomacy has been centered
on peace with such a condition existing in its arm-
ed forces. So when Adolf Hitler rang out his chal-
lenge last Autumn, the controlled press gave it but
four lines of space. It is also notable that in a recent
address made by Stalin, France and England were
made the butt of his sarcasm, while Hitler and
Mussolini were treated with kid gloves. Everyone
knows that although Russia aided the loyalist
cause it did not attempt to give major aid that would
win the revolution.
So, while the Soviet is still the Russian bear at home,
it is playing the role of a lamb in international affairs.
Report is that Clark acted very "lovey dovey" at his
marriage to Carole. So that movie manner is the real
thing after all.
A "colossal" wrestling match was staged at a smelt
festival. How appropriate!
Orthodontia is the dental name for teeth straighten-
ing. Suggested, maybe, by sound of a wide-mouthed pa-
tient's reply when a dentist asked him a question.
