worked whole-heartedly to put out
a yearbook that will please the
students and at the same time
give them something different.
One of the most unique ideas
ever to be used in a yearbook

Special material for the aid of
students in choosing a career was
put at public disposal in the li
brary during vocation week. The
material proved to be of great
benefit to the students who were
fortunate in having already se
lected their life’s work, and oth
ers were also helped by the study
of different occupations.
The available material covered
the general professions and many
of the new fields which are
opened to the youth of today.
Many publications have been pur
chased recently concerning the
young women’s place in the busi
ness world and the various new
trades which are open to the men.
Aid in preparation for these occu
pations can be obtained from
many of these books. One may
certainly be prepared for the job
when the opportunity comes.
