for their tremendous help during
our 15th year.
Words cannot express how loyal
and unselfish they have been to

High school seniors, you are
probably much in doubt as to what
field of study to enter, what ba-
sic requirements are necessary
for various fields. These, and
other questions will be answered
for you at the buzz sessions by
prominent professional men.
Inquiries as to job opportuni-
ties, job applications, person-
nel problems, chances for ad-
vancement, salariesall of these
will be elucidated at the seminar.
Problems which minority groups
encounter will be discussed.
Each and every one of us will
find it profitable and advanta-
geous to take part in this por-

Now, let's be serious
And also a bit curious.
Come to the buzz sessions
And learn many lessons.
