Since the services of this center are available to Junior College students, it was suggested [that they be informed about the procedure and advantages of the [system. The aim of a center of this sort, [as it applies to disabled veterans, [is to help them choose their occupational goals in accordance with their individual abilities, interests, personalities, education, and past occupations and experiences. However, the guidance involves more than the mere selection of a vocation, for personal problems of adjustment, marital and school diffi- | culties, and emotional instability are also coped with. When a veteran comes in, he is given an orientation to the whole process by the acting chief, Mr. Hegdal. After the orientation he is personally introduced to one of the counsellors who interviews him to find out his background—mili- j tary life, rank, advancement, schooling, subjects liked best.extra- curricular activities, home life, hobbies, social life, whether or not introduced to Miss Goette, the psy- chometrist, who administers the tests. The results are returned to the counsellor, and the counsellor and counselee talk over the results together. Jobs are then discussed, and the advisor functions mainly as a source of information and a critic. The veteran is encouraged to make the suggestions himself. After the pros and cons of the various jobs or vocations have been discussed and the veteran has been advised as to where he can find his training, he is returned to Mr. Hegdal's office where a doctor approves or disapproves of the plans with regard to the man's disability. Finally, the veteran talks to a training officer who helps him get started on his training and keeps check on his progress. The procedure for G. I's. is similar, but no doctor's approval is required. In this respect, the counselling service for college students is the same. The Veteran's Administration Guidance Center here has been in operation since July 15 th, and is one of ten such centers in the state. Most of the centers are located in teachers' colleges and in the Twin Cities. The center here serves eight surrounding counties, and since its commencement has aided approximately 800 veterans. Those on the staff include Mr. Hegdal, acting chief, Mr. Roy, Mr. Harris, and Mr. Iverson, counsellors, Mrs. Rockenbach, clerk, and Miss Decker and Miss Drysdale, secretaries.

INTERVIEWS TEACHERS Dean Goddard left Junior College last week to attend a meeting of the National Conference of Higher Education which was held in Chicago. The conference started March 31st and lasted through April 3rd.
