Berns TIMES Washington Bureau WASHINGTON -- You're going to school today and thinking about jobs tomorrow. You've heard all the talk about "the tight job market" "cutbacks." And how that guy down the block has spent three months looking for a job. So you're a little scared. But you needn't be. The Labor Department says that 60 million jobs available by will 1985. become In some occupations, like dentistry and mechanics and clerical work, the outlook is rosy. Employment opportunities are also considered excellent in fields ranging from, social work to stenography, from con- struction work to computer work. There will be a strong demand for typists and electricians engineering 'and and science technicians. And many lore. But there are other occupations where opportunities are expected to decrease. Secondary school teachers will continue to tind that supply in their field exceeds demand. Scientists may face similar prospects. And the day of the independent family farmer appears to be drawing to a close. JOB HANDBOOK Tomorrow's job picture is the subject of the 1974-'75 "Occupational Outlook Handbook," an 842 page Labor Department report that assures you that the prospects for many of the 85( professions it describes arc good. The product of a year ol e c o n o m i c research and analysis, the book has much to say about the good--and not so good--bets for the jobs of tomorrow. The report points out. for instance, that your Facts On Futures ..

This was 8 cents higher than during the preceding quarter and 27 cenls higher than during [lie first quarter of 1973. Secretaries earned an av age of $3.22 an hour during the first quarter of 1974. This was the same as during the previous quarter but was 32 cents higher t h a n during the first quarter of 1973. Too Many Matters NEW YORK (AP) -- The Platters, a group which sold more than 75 million records of such songs as "The Great Pretender,' "My Prayer" and "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes,' Is having trouble with groups say ing they are the Platters. Buck Ram, the group's composer-arranger and manager, has a registered patent on the name The Platters, He has hac injunctions served on other acts who are using the name, now that there jg a .wave of nos talgia for appearances by groups which were popular in former years. By WYL1E PARKER AND LAVERN HOL1F1ELD A. G. Edwards and Sons, Inc. The wheat responded well to recent warm temperatures and rainfall. Harvest is moving along normally. The market took a friendly turn after last week's April 1 stocks statistics were released but soon faded. in spite of bullish news about the delay in Soviet spring jlantings, disappointing export movement, a brief West Coast dock strike, and the fact of larvest proved to be too much 'or the market. This latter force hpuld continue to w e i g h on prices In the period just ahead, assuming no adverse weather developments. The stocks report was most bullish on corn, but when other markets on'the Board of Trade and Mercantile Exchange began to falter, corn could not not hold out long. The Russian news was also friendly to the corn market. In addition, there were persistent rumors that USDA had underestimated April 1 stocks in several states and that corrections would be forthcoming. This was officially denied. U S D A DID ..lower the carryover forecast, and with good new export interest well as weekly sales and inspection data, the foreign factor continues to be constructive. Domestically, country selling brought in some hedging pressure and weak livestock markets provided psychological weight. New crop planting is moving a l o n g nicely. Fertilizer problems are being reportec but nothing is happening thai wasn't anticipated for months in advance. The corn stocks in Chicago have started to drop States which normally supply h e Chicago area were elatlvely low in Inventories on he April 1st report and this «uld create tightness late in ie season and force new crop iturcs to greater discounts on he old larket ressure In the near term.

Tiv iupply into the summer im royes somewhat on a number basis and there is reason I expect some improvement i rice, but not a rise back t he $KiO area. Weak demand, on-fed beef, heavy fed weights, nd imports will work against harply higher prices. IN THE NEAR term, the larket will be testing for a ow and should be somewhat rratic. We would confine rading to a short term basis. possible truck strike on May 3 will confuse the near term market. Hogs and bellies have been veak also b u ' t vulnerable to echnical rallies. Although in elter fundamental condition lan cattle, they still suffer rom the same problems of eights and demand. Belly locks increased seasonally in ecent vveelos. but are at el a lively low levels for this ime of the year. Should the og marketing picture change his summer, some tightness :ould develop in bellies. For the ime being, we believe t h a t logs and bellies are still in najor downtrends and should je sold on rallies. Poor demand and overproduction are weighing on cash prices at the time of the ·ear when prices are seasonally veakest. Strong grain markets ate last week gave temporary support, but they too have had difficulty maintaining strength. We expect egg futures lo continue to be weak.

Greyhound bus sideswiped a recked tractor-trailer rig on a iarp curve near here Satur- ay. and police said seven per- ons were killed and at least 35 njured. Hospital officials said seven f the injured were in critical ondition. The highway patrol said the us failed to make .a sharp urve in a construction detour n U.S. 60 and ripped against lie truck, which had turned on .s side about two hours earlier vhen it failed to make the urve. The entire right side of the us was torn open. The bus, which began its run in Chicago, was headed for Memphis, 'enn., where it was to make onnections for New Orleans and other points. The driver of the bus, Cloyd obbs, 30, was practically the inly person uninjured in the Collision, officials said. Officials said the detour had ieen changed Thursday, mak ng the curve sharper. The crash occurred about 4:15 a.m about two miles east of Char eston in southeast Missouri. ADA Asks No Immunity For Nixon WASHINGTON (AP) -- The iberal Americans for Demo cralic Action urged Congress Saturday to reject any effort lo ;rant President Nixon immun ity from future prosecution in rclurn for his resignation. Holding its 27th national con vention here, it also renewed its call for Nixon's impeach ment and said that, "when" he Is impeached by the House, he should turn the presidency over :o Vice President Gerald R ITord until the Senate decides the matter. The three resolutions, and n fourth, one urging campaign fi nancing and other reforms as a result of the Watergate scan dal, were appoved unanimously by the ZOO delegates. The resolution dealing with presidential immunity was part inspired by the situation in which Spiro T. Agnew resignei as vice president in return fo a no contest plea to a single ta evasion charge. Tha impeachment resolution said Nixon should be im peached "promptly" by tit House "for grievous offense against the Constitution, and i particular for crimes punish able under the Criminal Cod of the United States." In 1871, ADA urged Nixon b impeached "for making war i violation of th- Constitution am for crimes against humanity. In recent months, its leader have been in the forefront o the impeachment drive.

MCCARTY Chaplain of the Razorbacfcs I am compelled to give a brief reply to a recent sports column in one of our state newspapers (whose name does not begin with "G") in what s one o fthe most inane, naive and rude columns I have ever read.

So mused Travis McGee, doubtful knight in slightly tarnished armor, seconds before the girl in the mini-nightdress dashed out of the night and across Miss Agnes' headlights. As surely as a moth emits a subliminal aroma to its own kind, McGee attracts lovely ladies and trouble, in equal proportions. Through 14 novels, spanning about as many years, he has doled out lumps to the wicked and assistance to the brave -- for 50 percent of the Wolf Calls WASHINGTON (AP) - If you hear a wolf call in the Shoshone NaLional Forest cast p! Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, you may just be tuning in on a tape recording intended to flush any real wolves out of the woods. The Fish and Wildlife Service is using this method to seek information on the Northern Hocky Mountain Wolf, once thought to be extinct in the United Stales. There have been recent reports, however, of wolf sightings in Montana, and sightings and bowlings in Wyoming. lakes. Since McGee's play round is the marinas and real state developments of south lorida, the stakes run very, ery high. During lulls in the action, he egrets the takeover of ecent, humane world, safe for Tightened young women an accoons, by the snake-eyed etailers of plastic garbage who re turning the cerulean wate xnirbon brown.

Goods producing jobs are omething else again. Little rowth is expected in the field i agriculture manufacturing, onstruction and mining. FEWER FARMERS T h e Bureau of Labor tatistics estimates that there ill be about 40 per cent fewer armers in the mid-1980's than lere were two years ago. The handbook reiterates a dtniliar theme: there will he xtter jobs for better educated ob seekers. "Employers are seeking eople who have higher levels f education because many jobs re more complex and require ireater skill," the book points ut. "Furthermore, employment irowth generally will be fastest n those occupations requiring h e most education and raining." Officials note that skill equirements arc rising as new utomaled equipment increases, 'hat means, for instance, that letter trained individuals will be sought in sales work, where machines will be redesigned and equipment will be mor» complex. Yet a job seeker with a college degree won't be tha precious commodity that he once was. "The college degree won't b« :he great ticket to the future that it was in the 1960's," warned Neal H. Rosenthal, the director of the Labor Department's Occupational Handbook studies. Some experts speak of college graduate "surplus" within the next decade. So while college degrees will desired more than ever they also will be more abundant than ?ver. All of which means that occupational training -- through apprenticeship, j u n i o r a n d community colleges and poet- high school vocational education courses -- are expected to ncrease in popularity. JOBS AVAILABLE It still will be possible to get many jobs without a college d e g r e e . Lithographic occupations, fire fighting and cement and concrete masonry work wilt be available for persons with, only a high school degree.- The handbook, which can b* purchased by sending J6.85 to the Superintendent of Docu- m e n t s , U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C.. 20402. is filled with both, general and specific data. There is information on the overall job market of the future--predictions of a labor force by 1985 of nearly 108 million, more than half of whom will hold white collar jobs. There is .plenty of specific data, too -- pages telling you what an underwriter is, what a forestry technician docs, tha kind of training a floral technician needs and the salary that a psychologist makes. And, most importantly, thcra are plenty of projections about the job prospects for each of the professions.
