The miraculous increase of population throughout the entire country, the rapid growth of tarns and cities, the advent of the machine industry, and the change in commerce from local importance to one of worldwide significance have fundamentally changed the folk-ways and mores of the people to meet the new demands of life. There is a demand for more education and young men and women are crowding the secondary schools and colleges as never before. Consequently, more equipment is needed, more teachers must be trained, and the curriculum must be broadened to meat the present needs. According to Mayer (9), some of the institutions have been slow in adjusting their curriculum to the needs of society as a result of the lack of information on the occupational status of their graduates. The occupational distribution of the graduates of American colleges is a matter of great importance to all institutions of learning, to their officers, students, graduates, and prospective students.
