Today's genctation of youth far from having to face a dismal
future without hope of jobs of anything beyond subsistence living,
will find as a 'molt of industrial progress born of research and tech

Such was the encouraging mes
sage which more than 400 stu

from 80 •colleges and appientice
schools in the East, Middle West,

ers of Amei man thought at a din

Discussion Held
The dinner, which masked the
initiation of General Motors
World's Fair activities for 1940,
had as its theme "The OppoTtun
ity ,for Youth in Building the
World of Tomorrow." Since the
famous Futurama exhibit is a
huge presentation of the mechan
ical and physical characteristics
of the world as it may appear in
1960, General Motors Inylted stu
dents from the various 'colleges
because they are representative Apr
the men who Will, build and popu
late this World of Tomorrow
Following an explanation of tlic
theme by Alfred P Sloan Ji ,
chatiman'of General Motors, Wil
liam S Knudsen, president of
General Motors, and Charles F
Kettei in g, vice-president In
charge of research, a panel dis
cussion—similar to "Information

Notables Speak
Provocative of the liveliest dis-
Lussion was the question "Is it
reasonable to expect expansion in
industry,alone to absorb the mil
lions reported as unemployed,
plus college and high school grad
The reason for industry's fail
ure to expand at present, it was
agreed by the experts. , was be
cause in the words of Dr Comp
ton, "of a major block in which
profits, if they occur, are very
much limited and losses arc not
allowed so that gamble against a
change of success is so great that
many people are not taking it,"
General Johnson pointed out
that if the normal business expan
sion of lour and four-tenths per
cent annually had continued after
1929, industry alone ,would have
found employment for six million
persons without taking into ac
count associated services
Members of the forum agreed
that the type of education was no
where nearly as important to in
dustry as the type of men. Mr
Kettering expiessed It' "It doesn't.

course you take as long as you
