The New England Section of the Society deemed current college enrollment and employment opportunities of sufficient urgency to give it major emphasis at their winter meeting. The three papers that follow deal with the national, northeastern, and eastern Canadian situations. Enrollments are heavy everywhere. Long-term job opportunities appear bright, but immediate prospects in the United States indicate keen competition for the most desirable jobs during the immediate years ahead. Opportunities for self-employment are bright, hence determined individuals should be able to make a place for themselves. Opportunities in Canada appear bright for both the immediate and long-term outlook.
