COVER. If you have read this far, .you are quite aware that
Conrad Elvehjem '23, famed scientist-administrator and
active alumnus, will be the 13th University of Wisconsin
president upon the retirement of Pres. E. B. Fred on June 30
of this year. (UW Photographic Laboratory Photo).
  TURNABOUT. WAA President John A. Keenan re-
minded us last month that we all went to college on "dif-
ferential scholarships", representing the difference between
the fees we paid and the cost of teaching us. There are, of
course, other kinds of scholarships, too, and Alfred C. Sachs
'47 of Minneapolis recently reminded President Fred that he
held the Charles Kendall Adam fellowship of $350 in 1946-
47 while doing graduate work in history. With this reminder
he enclosed a check for $350 "so that others may benefit
in the future. I shall always feel grateful for having been
privileged to attend the University of Wisconsin. It is truly
a great university."
   STILL HAPPY HUNTING. Despite somewhat uncer-
tain economic decisions, UW  graduates have found they can
still get a pretty decent job if they go after it, according to
Emily Chervenik, coordinator of UW Placement Services.
Job recruiters visiting the campus emphasize quality rather
than quantity-but still offer salaries averaging from $350 a
month in non-specialized fields to $500 in specialized fields,
plus usual fringe benefits.
