Small Institutions
Rank Favorably In
Liberal Arts Field
Should the high school graduate
who plans to teach give up the
idea of attending the school of
his choice because it is “too big”
—or is primarily known as an
“engineering” or a “business”
Not necessarily. According to
a recent study, “the very large
institutions . . . emerge as the
heaviest producers even when size
of the undergraduate enrollment
is taken into consideration.”
Actually, according to the study
originated by Dr. Frank Kille,
former dean of Carleton College,
sixteen colleges and universities
produce one fourth of the nation’s
college teachers. These include
California, Harvard, Chicago, Co
lumbia, Wisconsin, Minnesota,
Illinois, Michigan, Washington
State, University of Iowa, Texas,
Northwestern, Oberlin College,
Ohio State, Missouri and Cornell.
When the study is broken down
to include only those teaching in
liberal arts or education, smaller
institutions rank more favorably.
Leaders in this category are
Woodstock College, University of
Chicago, George Peabody College
for Teachers, Reed College, Wes
lyan, Greenville (111.), Swarth
more, Bowdoin, Southwestern
University (Tex.), Haverford Col
lege, Transylvania, Carleton, Am
herst, Cornell, Hamilton (N.Y.)
and Lawrence (Wise.).

journal of the University of Michi

“It is axiomatic that a lab can

“In the lab with one scientist |
and four secretaries our man is in j
constant turmoil to keep his as
sistants busy.
Industry Actively
Seeking Graduates
The high school graduate who
does not plan to go on to college
may face what he considers a dif
ficult task—the problem of “find
ing a job.”
Jobs don’t “grow on trees” as
the expression goes but, although
some graduates don’t realize the
fact, industry is actually eager to
find qualified and capable high
school graduates to fill immediate
positions—or to enter training pro
Some industries have estab
lished career guidance commit
tees. Through distribution of press
releases and information booklets,
these committees inform junior
and senior high students of job op
portunities and requirements, col
leges offering specialized training,
and companies which offer schol
arship and financial aid programs.
For example, a 24-page booklet,
“Grow with an Exciting Busi
ness,” describes opportunities in
the paper industry in such major
areas as accounting, engineering,
marketing and science. It also
lists colleges which offer special
ized training in pulp and paper
technology. The booklet also cites
the interests and abilities that
contribute to success in various

What opportunities are likely to
present themselves to the high
school graduate who intends to go
on to college in order to qualify
for a career in the teaching field?,
Many teachers begin at the ele
mentary or secondary level as
soon as they complete require
ments for a teaching certificate,
and continue to work on their
Master’s or Ph.D. requirements
during school vacations.
The graduate who can qualify
for a college or university teach
ing staff has a good chance of
making the “home” team. Ac
cording to a recent study, one col
lege teacher in five teaches at his
undergraduate alma mater.
College level instructors in agri
culture, chemistry, dentistry, eco
nomics, engineering, English,
math, physics, and medicine
headed personnel demands regis
tered by foreign institutions at
The University of Michigan place
ment office during the 1959-60
school year. Some 312 requests
were received for personnel to fill
college positions overseas. Iraq,
Lebanon, and Turkey placed most
of the requests.
Career In Selling To Or For Farmers
Young high school and college
graduates with actual farm ex
perience never had greater oppor
tunity to make ix-^ue,‘ than they
do today.
How? By selling to—or for—
Job and career possibilities in
agricultural selling are many, and
their number grows all the time,
according to a report by Sales and
Marketing Executives—Interna
t' nal, which has hundreds of af
hiiaied clubs throughout the farm
ing regions of the country.
“Because he understands farm
ing, farmers and their needs, who
;s better qualified to sell to or for
farmers than the farm boy him
seu?” the report states. “Further
more, why should a farm boy
throw away all his farm experi
ence and head for some totally
unrelated occupation, when men
are needed in many farm-related
In recognition of this situation,
Sales and Marketing Executives
—International has developed a
program—“Careers in Agricul
! tural Selling.” Colleges and uni
versities (Cornell University is a
notable example) have been en
couraged to establish courses in
salesmanship oriented to agricul
ture. Corporations, through SME s
own Youth Education Sponsorship
program, provide funds to pro
mote selling as a career among
young people in farming com
munities. The same funds also
provide for the placement of col
lege graduates with farm experi
ence in sales posts, while giving
undergraduates and boys gener
ally part-time employment to help
with their education.
Sales and Marketing Executives

ganization dedicated to advance
