College No Longer Place To
Loaf; Jobs To Be
At last something is being done
about these "Wlmpy-llko" college
students who would gladly mow a
lawn for a meal if you had a lawn.
The Hardln-Simmons Employment
Bureau started this summer is find-
ing lawns for them to mow. The
bureau finds not only that type job
but every other kind as well.
Inaugurated by Dean Collins hard-
ly more than a month ago it has al-
ready found jobs for 41 students who
could not have attended college this
year without work. The purpose of
the bureau is to fill all possible open-
ings with students who have had the
necessary experience required by the
employer. Placements already made
have been in private homes depart-
ment stores shoe stores tailor shops
groceries drug stores and many oth-
ers. Varied Experiences
Students who applied during the
summer have had varied experiences.
Some boys have been cattle punch-
ers and one herded sheep in New
Mexico. One formerly made political
speeches to Mexicans in the Spanish
language and many have worked in
oil fields and carbon black compan-
ies. Several have worked as chemists
for oil companies and others have
been with surveying crews and con-
struction gangs. One boy had the
dangerous task of blowing gas out of
oil tanks and another dynamited rat-
tlesnake dens during the summer for
a living. Some boys whose natural
inclinations are slightly different
from these are going to work in pri-
vate homes waxing floors washing
dishes and keeping yards in exchange
for room and board. Many are ex-
perienced shoe salesmen barbers
bookkeepers beauty shop operators
Boda jerkers salesmen printers nnd
Benefits of Bureau
The bureau is beneficial to em-
ployers as well as students because
it saves their time. Rather than in-
terviewing 25 boys or girls for a job
and wasting a day the employer
merely telephones the requirements
he expects to find in his employees
to the bureau. From the employment
bureau's files are taken names of
students with the necessary qualifi-
cations and they are sent to the em-
ployer. There he talks with them
and makes the final selections him-
self. As more people learn of its
services and use it the bureau will
grow more efficient.
Jobs of all types Are handled by
the bureau. Women call the office
daily asking for boys to mow their
yards or for girls to help an after-
noon with the housework. By doing
work of this sort students can pick
up extra money and never miss the
The bureau which will continue its
work throughout this year is located
in the main administration building
on the third floor.
