TUESDAY, APRIL 25, 1950 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS June College Graduates Will Look Long for Jobs By Sum I>a«son NEW YORK, April 25. buyers' market is back for the college graduate. Businessmen will have their pick this June rrom a bumper crop of you job applicants. In such fields as engineering, where until recently there was a shortage, no\ there is ,* surplus of trained youth—perhaps ijfcity half oj those graduated this June will find jobs waiting. It is the same in most of the professions. June Grads Warned The June grad is warned by the Bureau of Labor Statistics that he'll buck stiff competition, may have to take lower pay than the graduates of a year or two back, ma; 1 have to start lower down the ladder or find work in allied field rather than in one for which he prepared. Some Government officials suggest he might do better to return to college for postgraduate work—if he has any more GI aid coming—to get even more training for the increasingly competitive higher skilled fields. The collage graduates will be among about 1,700.000 newcomers to the labor market this year. The DLS says there will be less than one million openings due to death or retirement, leaving 700,000 in need of entirely new jobs. But already out of wolk and looking [or jobs arc more than /our million uii- emplyed. Compare with the postwar low watermark of unemployment— 1.6 million in October. 1943. and you see what the newcomers are up against. Standards to Be Up However, some believe that the surplus of Job applicants will mean that standards of employment will be raised and college degrees will required where they haven't been since the war—and all in the graduate's favor in the race for available jobs. The new job applicants line up like this: 5'uO.OOO college graduates a record high. (3M.POO of them arc men, and ^SO.OOO are veterans); (JOO.OOO of the 1,200,000 high school graduates wlu will not go on to college; and 600,000 who during 1950 are expected to drop out of college or high school and look for work. They will find 57'i million employed, as compared with the peak of 61.0 million in July. 1018. They will find considerable optimism o- bo»t the general state of business, but In spite of that the will find the rate of plant expansion, and therefore of new job opportunities, slowing down. Government officials are urging that Industries expand to make more jobs; many businessmen reply that taxes must be lowered to make expansion worthwhile. Musician Leader Dies CINCINNATI. April 25.
