The event will be open to young men and women throughout Eastern Iowa. Students at all Iowa colleges and universities have been alerted to the project through bulletin board posters and other material provided placement directors at each school. The chairman also announced Saturday that seniors planning to attend can forward a copy of their college placement data form, if they want, and Chamber of Commerce personnel will make additional copies for them to use Dec. 27. Almost 50 seniors already have preregistered and packets are being prepared for them so they won’t be delayed at the registration desk. Similar packets will be prepared for seniors registering this week. Seniors can register simply by sending their name, home address, name of college or university and major field of study. The information can be mailed to ‘‘Operation Native Son”, 127 Third street NE. Cedar Rapids, 52401.
