Schuler announces the resignation of Miss iVivian Strand, high school mathematics instructor. Miss Strand, whose home is at Manly, has not definitely decided as to her plans for the coming year, but will probably take graduate work. She has been a popular and efficient teacher here for the past five years. College Education Not Practical Open Forum D! M. Register: Ottar Tlnglum's qontribution on the Open Forum page of May 30 in regard to the failure of .American educational instiuttiona is due for considerable comment, and I am cet-tainly in a position to offer criticism. "I was graduated from the Oel- weln Senior high school with something like a 92 per cent average. I was told by my high school teachers that I most certainly should attend college. I accepted this as sound advice and began making preparations. My greatest obstacle was finances. However, by wbrking summers, and five hours a day while attending college, I managed to be graduated from the College of Commerce of the University of Iowa, in Iowa City, on June 1, 19.31. 'My chief interest was accounting. Part Time .lobs 'As far as a job is concerned. I might just as well have spent four years in the penitentiary. Before I went to college, I never rmd trouble finding employment. Now, nobody has any use for me. For- three years after graduation I remained in Iowa City and worked the part time jobs I used to earn my way through college, because I did not have finances to travel around in search of employment, because of the general scarcity of all types of jobs, and be- cause I did not care to go home and further burden my folks who were just managing to keep their heads above the water. On May 1. 1934, I returned to n»y home for better or worse. Since that time, 'except for a few hard labor odd jobs, I have b'een unemployed and hitch-hihing here arid there in search of work. In some cases openings for which 1 applied were taken by experienced men. I was told by 'a Des Moines automobile finance company last March that my knowledge of accounting wa» too advanced for the work they had to offer. Vote Getters Wanted I applied for a position at the Iowa Unemployment Compensation commission. I was told there that my ability and education were of no value as qualifications to secure a position. I was further informed that only vote getters could get a position with the state. I have discovered also that sons of directors of large corporations have :a much better chance. Before 1929 industry was more than willing to accept graduates from high schools and colleges. Today they demand only experienced men. Colleges cannot furnish experienced men. Industry complains that there is a shortage of good men. In their opinion a good man is a young man between 25 and 35 with years of successful experience. Inasmuch as Industry has not recruited any trained men during the last few years, naturally such men are not available. Industry cannot expect finished blacksmiths, engineers,' accountants, salesmen, etc., at public expense. All the public schools can offer is a good background knowledge. Industry must teach the practical end. We cannot convert our schools--into factories, shops and offices. Advice to Business Men Business men could accomplish much more if they would use the money they spend to fight political factions like the Roosevelt administrations In an effort to employ men and women: for "by so doing they.would eliminate the need for burdensome compulsory social security laws. Industries manage to form pools and associations to fix prices and avoid destructive competition. However, In no way do they combine to improve the working conditions of their employes or the welfare of the people. Industry has other obligations aside from producing goods at a profit. Give the young people jobs so that, they can support their aged folks, and social security laws will be unne.cessary.—G. Russell Anderson, 119 Third Ave., N.
