  Vv after a total of 528 placements were made.     Of the unfilled requests
83
were for seasonal workers and 1,321 for year-around help. The small number
of
requests for seasonal workers is partly due to the fact that the real demand
for
that type of help will not corae for several more weeks. In the table below
