6 July 20, 1948 Maion Cilr dale-Gazette, Mason CHv, la. 1,000 Seniors Get Guidance for Vocations Rotary Sponsored Project Reviewed A total of 1,00* high school seniors in Mason City received vocational guidance in conferences held with Rotary counsellors during the past 3 years, it.was pointed out in a report of the project by Perley Brunsvold, vice principal of the Mason City high school, at the Rotary luncheon meeting at the country club Monday noon. Interest in business led the list of vocation choices .for boys in the 1948 conferences while nursing comprised one of the largest choices of the girls, the conference results showed. Another large choice by girls this year was teaching. Second on the list for boys and girls together was retail work including selling, store management and secretarial work. A large group of boys each year also indicate engineering as a choice, Brunsvold pointed out. Some All-Day Conferences The conferences lasted all the way from a half hour to a whole day with lunch thrown in in some instances while the vocations were being discussed, plants visited and demonstrations made as the case required, Brunsvold told the sponsors of the project. The conferences are arranged in co-operation with the high school guidance program. The h'igh" school issues a guidance sheet which is sent in advance to the Rotary counsellors who have signified their willingness to hold the conferences and name the convenient time. , Among items listed on the guidance sheet for discussion are such as general opportunities offered in the field, the qualifications and training necessary, how to start the training, probable earnings, competition in the' field, advantages and disadvantages, study literature and demonstrations. The seniors know about this program in advance and are looking forward to it each year, Brunsvold said. "Guidance Is Imperative" "We all realize that the greatest asset of this country is it: young people and since 75 per cenl of our high school graduates go to work immediately following graduation it is imperative to give them guidance and training and nol dump them on the labor market to $248,058 Boost in Taxes Seen in School Budget Mason City school district taxpayers face an increase of $248,058 in taxes for school purposes next year, according to the budget adopted by the school board at its regular monthly meeting Monday evening. •. The total budget for school purposes adopted by the board is $1,352,251 compared with the 1947-48 budget of $1,081,152, the secretary's recapitulation shows. Revenue other than taxes will make up some of this difference. Major items in the increase are approximately $113,000 in teachers' salaries, $10,000 in custodians' salaries, $60,000 for construction and new equipment, $19,000 for property revaluation and assess- ng, $13,000 for teachers' pensions, $7,000 for building repairs and J8,000 for improvement of grounds. Improvements Included The construction program includes $43,000 for improvements at the central heating plant and $15,000 for completion of the Harding school basement. The property revaluation is an item that will occur only the one year, it was pointed out.
