Opportunity's 'Beating OnThe Door For 1947's Crop Of College Grads; Knock Won't Be So Loud Next Year OAMBRIDE, Mass., (NBA) -- j un e_this June-- Is tho month of golden opportunty for college graduates from coast to coast. Next year's Juno won't bo so Rood. Juno of 1940 nifty be much worse. But the more than 175,000 young men nnd women getting ehcrpsklna In 1947 have the world as their oyster. Bvi«lnrwi und Industry huve boen ftiArvcd, ever alnct! the wur bognn, for promising younK blood that could be ntnrtcd near the bottom nnd trained to hold top Jobs some day. For months now their scouts have been combing college carnp- UMVS. making nlmost fabulous offers to the more dcfilnvblc June graduates. Tl Is nlmost Impossible to get ft degree this ytmr nnd not hiive a chance ni one or more good jobs. But the need, great as it is, has limits. By grabbing everybody In sight, business and industry this *u"mmer v/ill fill most of the gaps. What remain will be filled from 1948's record-breaking crop of GI nnd other grndunLcH. By 1049, ccl- cuntors say, only nacancic.s and possible expansions will remain to bt- filled. And 1049 is llv? your of the big harvest-- the year when GI's who have returned to college will be turned loose in the biggest mass graduation In educational history. So the keener educators way that they iiren't taking back one word of the warnings they have given before, that scores of thousands of GI's will be disappointed If they hope to sell college diplomas for very much e x t r a pay on the employment market, For this one j ear, however, happy days really are here again on the campus. Th* sky Is the limit. Massachusetts Institute of Technology will hahd Ph. D. degrees in science to 19 youngsters. For Mich there arc 25 would-be employers lying In ambush, willing to let them write their own tickets up to, sny, $6000 a year. The 548 Bachelors of Science aren't eo fortunate. On the average, each has only two or three bidden offering from $225 to as much an $300 a month. Even that would look good to tho old grads \vho went with major corporations In tho '20's and tho '30'fl for $100 to $125 a month. * In general, an the average GI suspected, It Is the technical school graduate who Is in most demand, tit highest starting pay. A scien- t i f i c or technical degree Is worth H I least 15 per cent more than a good academic: degree. NevcrthclrHS, there are plenty of jobs clamoring for June graduates who can show only a Bachelor's degree In Aart.'i or Philosophy. Salesmen, If placed on salary, can hope to start at $225 to $260 a month. Hanking, Insurance, accounting, credit work may carry more prestige, but they pay $25 H month less. Tho general run of o f f i c e jobrt will pay under $200. Many companies aro offering preference to veterans. Not Just first chance at a job-- which docs not mean too much when there are good Jobs for all -- but extra pay, ranging from $15 to $30 a month according to the company and the length of service. Wcst- Jnghouse, for example, offers an rxtra $20 to any body who was In uniform ns much as two years. Employers generally arc well pleased with thff quality of this year's graduating classes, which are heavly loaded with veterans. Graduates naturally are pleased v l t h the situation. But It offers problems. "Jobs are so easy to find." ex- pained one. "that you don't know which to choose." There arc a (ew who arc not nnxlous to settle down to work. These Include some Harvard men who want to t a k e time out to reform tho world. But. this a t t i t u d e common. Veterans generally they have lost too much The Job's hunting him: Buck from the wars, this veteran lived In u trailer as he worked for his engineering 1 degree. Kv«ri without the slide-rule he's busily working, ho can figure that nexl month will be Ills golden opportunity If he's one of 1047's grads, Bikini Hangover Leaves Destroyer A Zombie Ship : r :: ;:^^ A JoH For Boy Calling 'Extra' NEW YORK--(/I 1 )--On o of the big needs In radio, says Electronics Magazine, is some gadget to give notice, when, the radio set Is turned off, that some big news announcement or televised show Is coming" up.

Tho TJS8 Hughes, once proud fluKHhip of tho ath plcnt at the An/!« beachhead, a terror of shell- flro whun GLs waded ashore through the surf of Southern France, escort for tho first occupation troops into Japan, today is a zombi o. The Hughes was one of the target fleet at Bikini, whan Joint Task Force No. 1 exploded two atom bombs to see what they would do to fighting ships. The first did the Hughes no harm. But the second, bursting beneath the lagoon's surface, spouted millions of tons of radioactive- water Into the air, Part of It fell on the Hughes. Since that time she has been untouchable. For six months she lay near vKwajalein. Then she was towed to Pnarl. She has waited here five months, because the Navy has been afraid that rough, wintry seas would break her up. When the Pacific is calmer, the HughoK will be towed, without a crew, lo Hromcrton, Washington, where she was commissioned in 1040.
