If they have found one stirring is sue to use against the Republicans next year, they haven't disclosed it. Yet at this same time in 1951 the Republicans were clouting the Democrats with two issues which remained major through the next 17 months up to election day in 1952: the Korean War and alleged Communists in government. There is no war now. The Demo crat's can't accused the Republi cans of not trying to get Reds out of government. Long ago Presi dent Eisenhower predicted his Republicans would work so hard on problem it would not be an issue in 1956. He seems to have been right. Extremely Placid With few exceptions, congres sional Democrats, the real party spokesmen when thev have r chief in the White House, ha\ been extremely placid. This migi be interpreted as meaning the Democrats think they have a cinch in 1956. They probably think nothing of the kind. If Eisenhower runs again, the Democrats' chances of losing look as good as in 1952. His popularity remains astonishingly high after almost 28 months in the White House. The Democrats, instead of trying to manufacture issues day by day, have given him extraordinary You can often hire the best help the least expensive way ... by spending as little as S1.05 for a Want Ad.

The question has been asked: How long will this go on? The Democrats may change their attitude. They haven t shown mucn sign of it yet. They have bucked Eisenhower from time to time: on lowering , boosting po5t?l workers" on restoring inflexible price supports, on roadbuilding. The Democrats could have rip ped into the administration for its confusing handling of the anti-polio ne. Most didn t. criticisn that delicate subject might have boomeranged. "Saved" Ike The one thing thev have harped i, in one way or another, is that they have saved Eisenhower from awn Republicans. These fai tors, more than any others, are probably responsible for the Democrats' strange quietness so late in the political aeason: 1. Eisenhower's personal popu larity. They know that if they find sometning to nit mm witn, u u*u better be big, real and earnest. Petty attacks on him will look petty and may have a reverse effect. 2. The two parties* programs are not basically far apart anyway. And, since this is a time of great prosperity, the Democrats will have a time pointing up any gieai differences unless they can find issues of deep and stirring interest. Those issues have not appeared. 3. The Democrats, except for their party label, lack a central rallying point. Adlai Stevenson, regarded by some as the party chief, can hardly lay full claim to the title. He has said too little to provide leadership or direction. At this time in 1951 the Republi- The Dixon Evening Telegrapn Tuesday, May 31, 1955 Page 7 Confederate Veteran Gets School Diploma Crestview, Fla. (JS— Florida's last surviving Confederate war veteran, William A. Lundy, had a crisp new high school diploma to frame and hang on his wall today.

Robert A. Taft of Ohio, the acknowledged Republican leader in Congress. He gave the Republicans a sense of direction and difference from the Democrats, even though his party deserted him at election. The Democrats in Congress have no comparable figure now. June Graduates Find Many Jobs Starting Pay Higher In Some Categories By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK UPi — The June graduate is cashing in on the business Average starting pay has gone up a little since the midyear graduate came out in January, college placement offices report. And corporations who were being conserv ative the first of the year about the number of jobs they would offer now have revised their plans upward in line with general optimism over the business outlook. Available jobs are now running about 10 per cent ahead of a year ago, most colleges report. Young engineers will get ar erage starting pay of $400 a month, and nontechnical grads will start 1300 to S390 a month, according to a survey of 120 schools by the Northwestern National Late msur- Co. of Minneapolis. This is a gain of from $10 to $35 over But a dark side of the picture is pointed out in another survey of 80 top corporations and 80 colleges in all parts of the country by Executive Job Counselors, a. New York firm. Corporations report that on an average 30 per cent of each year's crop of June graduates changes jobs within the first year. This is estimated to cost industry 336 million dollars in wasted re- cruirxnz a atuaent wr costs & corporation from H*0 to > $2,600, companies report, xney spend the money on tups to me^ny schools for interviews with likely-students, and in soma ctM the * job candidate is taken to inspect ■■ the corporation s plant. College placement officers report -that students themselves *wr*g»\ $27.40 in job hunting. They spend • it for transportation, telephone ' calls, resume writing; and employ- .' ment agency fees. Corporations estimate they spend -an average of $1,000 a man in' training the new employe in his first year. Many say they get little ■ of productive worth out of a man ' in his first year, so that his first year's pay is a loss if he quits. One midwest university reports increased interest in hiring underclassmen for summer work. Another finds more interest this year in nontechnical seniors. Experience, which at one time was demanded by some employers, isn't as necessary to land a job now, apparently. A western school reports that "many jobs for which experience was formerly demanded are now opening up to qualifie-graduates without experience."
