Thirteen research reviews in this issue pertain to manpower research organized under these topics: (1) Manpower and Youth, treating youth unemployment and the youth labor market, (2) Manpower Needs, including an analysis of manpower research since World War II, health manpower planning, the shortage of skilled and technical workers, a projection of manpower needs, and employment requirements for entry level occupations, and (3) Manpower Development, discussing the role of the community resource person, federal training and work programs, the impact of licensing on job entry, and a project in which unemployed and underemployed persons were trained for skilled jobs in industry. "Plain Talk," a continuing column by the author, stresses the importance of vocational educators' making public a professional stand on manpower and its importance in education. Fourteen policy papers are recommended as must reading for vocational educators. The bibliography lists 26 related studies. A Research Visibility readership study reports frequency of reading, features of particular interest, utilization of information, and documents and publications ordered from reports listed. (DM)
