Dr. Sol D. Resnick of Colorado A. and M. College yesterday threw a little cold water of his own on the idea of promoting rainfall by "seeding" clouds with chemicals, But he granted that possibilities of the technique have not been disproved, either--and th»t further experimentation Is warranted accountants, chemists,, business administration-majors, sales and merchandising personnel, students trained in teachers. insurance work and Of course, the biggest employer of all is Uncle Sam. Large number* of graduates; in some cases more than half the class, will enter the armed forces soon after receiving their diplomas. But this makes .little difference to the companies now seeking their services. Many hire them turn to work after discharge There'f going to be a shortage for years to come, »ay the firms,, so they might as well get the men Used up BOW. Keep In Tench The companies keep in touch with the drafted graduate through news letter! and other publications to remind him there's a job waiting. In most cases, they give him credit for accumulated seniority. Many firms are trying to get a jump .on their competitors by of- fci'ing summer work' to juniors, then trying to interest them in staying on after graduation. At the University of Kansas, companies are even talking to sophomores, though their graduation is two years away and most arc certain to be drafted, making it three or four years before the student can actually start work. Outstanding prospects are often flown to the plants to observe working conditions first hand. If they take the job, the firm will find them a house and pay all moving expenses. And the companies go all'out in plugging the advantages of the cities in which their plants are located. However, most firms avoid out-and- out high pressure tactics, having !ound that the students resent Salaries Higher Starting salaries are averaging 10 to 20 per cent higher than last year to compensate for the cost of living rise. Technical grads are getting $300-$400 per month. Those in other fields are averaging $25 to $50 less, according to survey reports. The situation varr les, however, and some gradu- at« are getting as much as $WO. The engineering shortage is' a product of supply and demand. In 1990, there were approximately 50,000 engineering openings and about the same number of graduates to fill them. But in the tw years ;ince, the demand has jump ed to more than 60,000 opening and the supply has dropped to les than half that number. · 'While non-technical supply anc demand figures are not as strik ing, most students will surely be able to find suitable emplbymen' the survey indicates. Want Graduate Study · Many of the best technical stu dents are turning down all offers so they can go on to graduate Work. An advanced degree wil command them a higher salary. T offset this, many firms allow the students to work and study at the same time--at schools near their plants. . , The -students having most difficulty in the job hunt are those in personnel work, advertising and law. Also scarce are publishing and radio-TV programming offers and the- demand for journalists varies 'throughout the nation. In the Southwest, the University of Texas is getting six journalism requests for every one it can fill, aut elsewhere, good newspaper iobs are few.

B, ALVIN STEINKOPF Fort William, Sc6tland-'(/P)-Her in the dour Highland! of Scot land, of all places, is a cattl ranch which would look prett good in Arizona. The ranch, abou 10,000 acres of mountain, .glen lurn, heather and peat, is a ven ;ure--now five years old--o Joseph William''Hobbs, who learn ed his ranching more than 40 years ago near Calgary in.Canada Hobbs has lived in Vancouver where he built a skyscraper, am n Sault Ste. Marie, where as Ky he sold newspapers. Now he ives in Castle Inverlochy near lere, a wealthy man determined o teach the Highlands that one way out of their shabby economic state is to turn a lot of wild and craggy country Into cattle ranches. "Britain needs beef more than any country on earth," says Hobbs. "Why be so dependent on the Argentine when here in the wide open spaces of the Highlands there is just the '--isht kind of setting for the right kind of dogie?" In 1945 Hobbs bought the busy Ben Nevis Distillery and the castle which has become his home. With cowboy tradition in his veins, he couldn't see the Highlands go to waste, and in 1947 he bought 5,000 acres. The holding, all in one piece, has been doubled since. Some Fit For Farming Only odd bits of the highland country are fit : for agriculture. The rest of it, much of it standing on end, is a tangle of bracken, a tough and useless fern, heather, peat and rugged grasses. Hobbs turned down the old Highland cow, long-horned, shag-1 gy-cbated and almost as sure-footed as.a goat. The Highland cow manages to live comfortably in the nOrinch average yearly rainfall but doesn't have energy to spar* to make impressive steaks. In the west of Ireland Hobbs found the Connemara cattle, short-haired and accustomed to even colder weather than is usual in Scotland. He bred Connemara cows with Aberdeen Angus and shorthorn bulls,.and produced the young stock which now roams his range. Short-hatred, the .animals dry quickly after rain and devote their energies to making steak. The ranch is run on Wild West principles, but there sire: differences. Cowboy-in-cm'ef Charles J. 5. Palmer, who retains his Scott- sh title of factor master of an es- ate is a cowboy in a kilt. He can't remember wearing anything else. There are other differences rom America too. Cattle are not oped, for example, because Par- iament thinks the practice is cruel. And for thi same reason, no livestock is branded. How arf they identified?
