Back to School
As thousands of East Texas boys and girls go back to high school and college this month,
wt are reminded of the need for the most careful planning of careers very early in school life.
Our greatest resources are our boys and girls who each year finish school and enter the world
of hard realities. Most of them start life with no definite plan and with litt'c or no information
about job opportunities. Vocational guidance, a radly neglected field, is receiving more and
mote attention from school and business leaders.
The Occupational Outlook Handbook, issued by the U. S. Department of Labor, Wash-
ington, has compiled valuable information about long range opportunities in 288 occupations.
This interesting volume which has been endorsed by the National Vocational Guidance Associ-
ation points out thit IK million young people enter the lat or force each year and that “many
of them choose a vocation on the basis of no information or partial information or even serious-
ly inaccurate information.”
• Maj* trends of employment fat long range planning are c'ted with interesting comments
on the effect of population shifts, new inventions and scientific advances. According to these
reports we find that opportunities in the plastic and chemical industries end in interior
decorating are good; that the legal profession, embalming, pharmacy, and personnel directing
are overcrowded; that there are not enough dentists; that radio announcing is nice work if you
can get it with quite a scramble for jobs.
The boy looking for a job is an appealing problem. He presents a great opportunity
far »>w«w" investment to every business man who is not too busy co listen to his eager, bright-
eyed dreams of conquest. Here is a field in which chambers ot co mmerce can render an impor-
ant service. Rotary Clubs io some towns have been helpfu' with vocstionil * dimes.
While there are 21,000 different occupations in the United States, many young people try
to get into a few overcrowded fields or seek “glamour” jobs. About forty-seven per cent of all
Jobe are in the “blue shirt" category and they have good chances of promotion. “White collar’
Jobs seem to b.- overrated.
Fortunate Indeed is the boy who knows what he wants to be by the time heenters high
school so thst ha can p'an his courses with a definite objective and with a minimum of wasted
Conservation of soft, oil, water, and forests will always be a major concern of East Texas
lenders. Let ns not overlook the greatest conservation opportunity of all—the boy looking for
a job.' ■'■■■ ,■> v '

Britala Speeds the Mew,
Aad Farmers Are Satisfied
Over a million people work la
agriculture and horticulture in Bri-
tain. Around 400,000 are farmer*,
the rest are the hired hands they
employ or members of the farmers'
One-third of the farmers own their
own farms, and two-thirds are ten-
ants, except In Northern Ireland,
where all the farmers are owners.
It must not be supposed that own-
ers are better off than tenants,
;financially or socially. Many farm-
ers, in fact, prefer to be tenants,
since they do not have to provide
capital for land and buildings, and
can therefore devote more of their
resources to stock, crops, and ma-
chinery to improve working effi-
In addition, security of tenure
has increased through the years un-
til now, under the Agriculture Act
‘of' 1947, a tenant who farms well
•nd pays his rent cannot be turned
off his farm unless the landlord in-
tends to farm the land himself. Fur-
thermore, a tenant who leaves his
[farm is assured of compensation
[for improvements, e.g., liming and
[drainage, made during his tenancy.
Proof that tenants are satisfied
dies in the average length of their
tenancy—21 years, or four years
'longer than the average period of
'ownership In the United States.
Many times, also son succeeds
lather as tenant. If tenure by family
'were taken into consideration, tha
average length of tenancy would be
On over half the farms, the farm-
er, his wife, and older children do
aU the work, with the occasional
assistance of neighbors. On the
other farms, there is an average

- Bakers Always Busy
Practically all bakery products
are produced, wrapped, distributed,
and sold within a 24-hour period,
according to the American Bakers
association. Bakers work ’round
the-clock to meet the tremendous
demand for a continual flow of
fresh baked goods. One large bak-
ing company even employs its own
weather man to insure fresh prod-
ucts. Knowing that on rainy and
windy days thousands of house-
wives will not go shopping, a good
forecaster can predict tomorrow's
big city bread requirements down
to within a few hundred loaves.
