or s notes A I N T H E long history of Tech athletics there h a s never been a n exodus of coaches like t h e one t h a t took place during the 30 days following t h e Gator Bowl victory ( see page 1 2 ) . Now don't j u m p to conclusions—there was n o purge or anything like that. I n fact, every coach departing Tech did so for a better j o b than the one h e held here. B u t it is always a shock when something like this happens. J o h n Robert Bell, offensive line coach, started it all when h e returned to t h e hills of his home state as head coach a t E a s t Tennessee State. J i m Carlen, chief of t h e defense for t h e past two years, then accepted t h e West Virginia head coaching job. Carlen, the fourth consecutive defensive boss a t T e c h t o move on to a t o p position, really got t h e ball rolling b y hiring defensive assistant coach Dick I n m a n as h i s h e a d defensive coach a n d J a c k Fligg, T e c h freshman coach, as his offensive line coach. Bell then countered b y hiring Billy Williamson, who helped Fligg on a temporary basis during t h e 1965 season, as one of his assistants.

Finally on J a n u a r y 28 came t h e long-awaited ( a n d much-feared we might a d d ) announcement t h a t T o n t o Coleman, assistant athletic director a n d a Tech fixture for 14 years, h a d accepted t h e post a s Commissioner of the S E C . This immediately cast a new light in t h e matter of selecting replacements. At this writing, D o d d is thinking in terms of a basic reorganization of t h e duties handled so well b y Coleman. H e is now looking for a new m a n to head u p t h e physical training dep a r t m e n t a n d be head freshman coach, after consulting with t h e T e c h administration. T h e new m a n will have a t least a master's degree, if D o d d ' s concept works out. T h e rest of Coleman's duties (which were m a n y a n d varied) will be delegated to J a c k Griffin, who has shown a talent for administration, and Bob Eskew, who can h a n d l e most anything assigned to him. ^ A NEW head of t h e defense h a s already been n a m e d b y D o d d t o replace the departed Carlen. H e is Leon " B u d " Carson, who spent t h e 1965 season in t h e same j o b for M a r v i n

Bass a t South Carolina. Carson, a star defensive back on the North Carolina teams of 1949-51, previously coached two years of high school football in Pennsylvania, a year of freshman football a t N o r t h Carolina, a n d seven years as a varsity assistant for t h e T a r Heels under J i m T a t u m a n d then J i m Hickey. Last year, h i s pass defense led the Atlantic Coast Conference a n d twice during his tenure a t North Carolina, i t ranked in t h e t o p t e n i n t h e nation. Cajjson never missed a spring practice a t T e c h during h i s varsity assistant jobs elsewhere a n d was Dodd's first choice for t h e job. H i s defense a t Carolina was similar to Tech's under Charlie T a t e , with a leaning toward the "monster m a n " concept used b y m a n y of t h e top defenses in t h e count r y over t h e past two years. H e sounds like a good one a n d Dodd, who was inundated by wires, telephone calls, a n d letters from coaches all over t h e country wanting t h e job, thinks he is the very best Tech could have acquired for this vacancy. One more defensive coach will be added to aid Carson a n d former Tech star Bill Fulcher, who returned to t h e staff after a couple of years of high school coaching. I n t h e next issue, we will go into t h e new alignment in depth. B. W.

• College grade-point average on the high side in technical subjects Secretly admitted to self at certain point in undergraduate career that the scholar's way of life is for other people but smart enough to have kept secret from the professors who are, after all, scholars. Diploma in, secret out.

Why not? The subjects were intrinsically interesting, and most of the professors proved to have a clear understanding of them.

To practice modern mechanical engineering—this is not 1936— one needs scope, contacts, and resources.

• Unafraid of choices and changes

With a mechanical engineering background, we might find him adept at keeping a troupe of welders happy on a new petrochemical project, or designing a new type of machine for the lithographic industry, or organizing a small laser-manufacturing department, or operating a large magnetic tape plant, or profitably piloting one of the world's major industrial corporations.

With a mechanical engineering background, he might choose to take a high leap over the interdisciplinary wall into solid state physics, pull some excessively generalized equations out of a journal that others on the circulation list quickly glance at and pass along. Six months later he may have a new composition of matter on board a ship bucking the solar wind to Mars.

What is said here about mechanical engineers is equally applicable to chemical engineers aad electrical engineers. Our expansion rate now demands technical people who, at the one extreme, are still fresh from the classroom with its benefits and, at the other, have had ten years of practice in their professions and are now ready to select a lifetime employer. We offer a choice of three communities: Rochester, N. Y., Kingsport, Tenn., and Longview, Tex. We earnestly solicit serious and honest self-descriptions addressed to:

CHROME-PLATED—corit. connected. He had no urge to rush up and peer intently at the glorious complexity of pipes under the hood, or to kick the tires, or to sit in the black leather saddle and with neat handwork go through the motions of riding 200 horses. In a sort of daze he stood transfixed by the glint of light from the hard, cold chrome of the nearest metallic beauty. "That glint—the same hard, piercing glint that's in their eyes. Those dammed young superbrains! The company recruiter sat on the steps of the graduate school and practically bribed them to come. And now we have them and all they do is ask questions and smile insinuatingly at everything we do. Like experience doesn't count. Just because all of us don't know all the latest theories and cannot carry on lengthy conversations with computers." Jackson twisted his neck in his collar and a shudder slid down his backbone just as his wife retreated from the crowd before the lovely pink-beige "Dusky Sunrise" Thunderhoof. "What's the matter with you? Worried about what it'll cost? Now Jack let's not get cold feet. You know our car is a year old and there are soon going to be all kinds of repair bills. And besides, this one has so many more conveniences, like the automatic 8

cigarette dispenser that at the push of a button brings a lighted cigarette to mouth level. There is no reason for us to risk any longer your having a wreck while fumbling and trying to light up. Jackson, we must be sensible." "Oh, I try to be sensible, Margaret, and I'm not about to back out of buying a new car. It is just that I'm tired. We don't have to trade tonight." And anyway, he thought to himself, I would like to enjoy the challenge of lighting my own cigarettes in the midst of traffic a few more days. Driving home, Jackson felt the steering wheel he had only recently become accustomed to, and the accelerator that now responded just so to the pressure exerted by his foot. "Obsolete," he said inwardly, "in just a year. Heaven knows how obsolete I am. It has been six years since I have been in school and I can hardly follow what some of these young graduates are talking about. I have signed up for practically every short course available in the last few years, but they don't seem to have done much good—just skimmed the surface or concentrated on one tiny area. And anyway, I always seem to be too tired to absorb much in those after-supper classes. Margaret's right about that— I'll admit it. Driving to class, listening to some guy lecture for an hour and a half, then driving home is wear-

ing. Doing homework on alternate evenings is not a lot easier with all the clatter and confusion around the house. Maybe some people can learn this way but for me it's just not adequate. It is like trying to build physical health by doing ten pushups every morning." A half hour later, plopped up into his big leather, reclining chair, with the TV blaring with men in a jungle slashing at vines with machetes and all manner of beasts screeching and screaming—he tried to forget it all. But as in the automobile showroom, he could not be swept along. The figures on the screen had no more reality to him than moving wallpaper and he could not hear anything but what was inside him. Then suddenly the noise on the TV quieted and the shock of the silence forced his attention. There was a tense night scene in the jungle and the only sound from the black screen was that of insects. Like cicadas. "Seven year cicadas," thought Jackson. "Born again every seven years. Why can't humans start over every seventh year? Wasn't that what the old-fashioned sabbatical was supposed to do for professors? If I could go away to a college campus for a year and really study, concentrate for twelve months, I believe I could come back more able to compete. A year would give me time to really sink my teeth into some subject matter, and without the responsibilities of work, I might have the mental and physical energy to learn again. I wonder if this idea has not occurred to others? It is so obvious."

• he next morning on break, as he stirred his coffee, Jackson casually asked George Morris, another junior executive, if it had ever occurred to him that it might be a good idea for the organization to let its men off every seventh year to go back to school and brush up on the latest developments—to sharpen their thinking. "W-hat? Back to the old grind? You crazy man? I can't imagine the company being able to afford anything like that or anyone wanting to go through school again." "But, George, don't you feel rusty around fellows like Rasmussen and Peters? Now be honest." "No, they don't bother me. Finesse it, man. Finesse it. We've got experience. Let those guys know it."

"Yea, George, yea." Jackson gulped a big, hot swallow of coffee, and pushed the cup aside. "T mioo<. J had better get back to it to figure out some new fool those guys with." it evening he brought up the ;ain, with Margaret, over the ible when he asked flatly: what would you think about back to school for a year?

Or oblems of moving our furnigetting everyone from Aunt le Saturday Evening Post to lr mailing address—just for one year? We will use up all our savings and somebody will get your job in the company. Everything is so convenient now." "Yes, I know there are problems. And about the job you are probably right. But someone is going to get ahead of me in the company anyway if I don't do something." "What is the matter—aren't you aggressive enough? Mr. Smith has not said anything to you has he?" "No, he hasn't." "Then what are you worried about?" "I'm behind the times, Margaret. Anyway, next to these guys right out of graduate school, I am. And it can only get worse. I'm afraid that finally I'm not going to be able to compete— and then I'll be shuffled to the side for the rest of my career. It's as sharp and clear in my mind as the hard glint of new chrome. Can't you understand?" "Yes, I understand you, Jack," said Margaret impatiently, with an irritated tone. "But think of your wife FEBRUARY 1966

and children sometime. Not just of yourself. If you really want to improve yourself, turn off the TV occasionally: read your Business Week— maybe even the Harvard Business Review and Fortune. And surely there must be books. Try polishing a little intellectual gleam on yourself without retreating from the world into the ivy halls for a year. Use a little self-discipline. Why I have heard of people who study an hour before breakfast." And she began stacking the dinner dishes into the dishwasher. Jackson sighed and shuffled out of the kitchen back towards the den and his big chair, inaudibly arguing: "I could punish myself and punish myself and still not stay abreast. Work drains me too much. If I tried studying three hours every night and one every morning in addition to the more than 50 hours I average at work, they'd have to ship me off in a few months for nervous and physical collapse. I don't think many other people can do it either—it's like dieting and New Year's resolutions: there's a lot said but not much done."

\Jn Friday Jackson arose before the rest of his family, and prepared himself some breakfast as though trying to accentuate how old-fashioned he was. He did not use the automatic bacon broiler or the fryer that flipped the egg at just the right time to ensure a perfect yellow yoke in a perfectly symmetrical white field. And so he ate burned bacon and an egg scarred by battle with grease that was too hot and a spatula that was applied at the wrong moment. But he did not seem to mind and even relished the burned flavor and the spidery toughness of the egg. Defiantly he wrote a note to Margaret informing her he was going to Jasper for the day to visit the University, and requesting that she call his office and report him ill with a bug of whatever description she wished to invent. Two hours later he was in Jasper, sitting in the University registrar's outer office because he had not made an appointment. He watched a tall, skinny lad with pockmarks on his face walk awkwardly into the inner sanctum with his mother and father to see Dr. Jones, the admissions officer. Another scrawny adolescent with longish red hair came out. "I'm a grown man. What am I doing here?" he asked himself. "Maybe

this is kid stuff." And then he told himself not to be ridiculous and that certainly there were many older students and tried to laugh at himself: "I probably should have brought along Junior for appearances sake."

B,

»ut even when he was invited in for his interview he still felt out of place and as stiff as an over-starched shirt though Director of Admissions Walter Jones shook his hand politely, motioned' him to a comfortable leather chair and sat back and quietly relit his pipe as Jackson began explaining why he had come. "I am considering taking a year's leave of absence from my job and coming here to study to refresh myself. I want you to tell me how I should go about registering." "You are a college graduate?" "Yes, Sir." "Then if you want to enroll in one of our graduate programs we will need a transcript of your grades from college and you will have to take the Graduate Record Examination. The next one will be held in March. What program are you interested in, Jackson?" "Well, I don't know exactly, Dr. Jones. I want to take some courses in management and some that will help me understand computers a little better and then some liberal arts courses I missed when I was in college. I don't really care about getting a degree so I would rather not enroll in a specific program where I will have to take so many required courses I do not need." Dr. Jones looked at him for a long minute, drawing deeply on his pipe. When he spoke there was an added firmness in his voice. "Jackson, we're not set up to let you go to school here that way. Ever so often someone informs us we ought to encourage people to take courses, cafeteria fashion to 'enrich their lives' — but we cannot do business like this. Let me explain. If we should open our doors we would have hundreds of people coming in to take one or two courses. For the registrar it would be a terrible headache since some would spread a half dozen courses over as many years. They might not be as well prepared as our regular, more serious students and the level of classroom work might have to be lowered. Finally, I am not sure we would have enough desks or class-

SUPERIVAN/iGER their responsibility may not be quite as great as that of • Plato's guardians, tomorrow's managers of business and industry will find that their actions affect more and more individuals, both in their companies and in the wider community. Already the corporation has assumed some of the responsibilities for the security of individuals that used to be the activity of churches and in many societies has been delegated to government. And increasingly, the individual's identification with his company is more significant than that with a town or a community or even with the nation except in times of national emergency, Tech's Dr. Glenn Gilman states very matter-of-factly. Because the business of business is no longer just business in the old, narrow sense, the manager of the future must himself be a very broad-gauged individual— wise in the ways of human beings as well as of the complex world of machines and machine methods that serve the technological society. Leaning back in his swivel chair this man who is a professor of industrial management at Tech and a dedicated student of the humanities, describes what he believes must be the characteristics of the manager of the future: "This super-manager must be familiar with all the methods of quantitative analysis and able to talk to the technocrats about inputs, outputs, feedbacks, pipelines, etc., but he must also be adept in the art of management, something difficult to teach. We can only try to educate the manager as a human being. "You can put price tags on the purely quantitative of unit costs, cost of production—but there are many facts like the morale of the work force and organizational efficiency requiring judgment by the manager based on LTHOUGH

his total experience. And there are other kinds of judgments that cannot be based on facts at all. These are judgments based on the values held by the society in which the manager operates. If he is not sensitive to these values, there may well be legislation passed to make him adhere to them in the future. This happened in the case of the Pure Food and Drug Act, and the child labor laws." Dr. Gilman says the problem of human relations was a much simpler one for the manager fifty years ago than it is today or it will be in the future. "The manager of two generations ago only needed to know his peers—other managers. He did not consider the human problems of the workers, many of whom, in the large northern cities, were immigrants. In the small southern community he would probably know them and could take them into account intuitively." Today when it is recognized that the manager has responsibilities towards all with whom he works, he is finding that he does not have the opportunity to know them as complete individuals. In our pluralistic society he may find that he does not even necessarily share the same value system with them and so he cannot work by intuitive responses alone. "More than ever, in the future, the manager will have to have some objective awareness of people, of why they act as they do," Gilman adds. "He will know that he cannot directly control people—make them do something—but can only create situations that will encourage them to do what he wants done." Gilman notes that a major problem already evident is that while the manager is finding it more and more necessary to be able to relate himself effectively with others, he is probably not as well prepared to do this as his

grandfather was. He cites the disappearance of the small town and of the stable city neighborhood as contributing factors to a loss of community— the community that used to prepare men and women for the kind of life they could expect with their fellows. "Today, young people do not have nearly the opportunity to learn how to relate to others that they had in the old communities. There is no place today where they can quickly validate the advice passed on by their parents and older persons and in our highly stratified society they are not exposed to a great variety of adults. Our society is so much more unstable than it was fifty years ago because it is so transient. Today we often blame the church, home, and school for not properly upholding the value system, but this was never the role of these institutions. They transmit values; the community firms up the value system and this sense of community is what is lacking today." Dr. Gilman does not believe the answer for the future lies in returning to the ways of the old (they were too exclusive and left out about threefifths of the population who were considered to matter, he says), but some new concept of the total community is going to have to evolve. And one of the responsibilities of the manager will be to play an important role in this evolution, he believes. "One of the characteristics of the American pioneer," he says, "was the ability to combine idealism with small, practical - steps in the direction of idealism. This dedication to the ideal and willingness to bind oneself to all the ordeals of attainment was of vital importance in the past and will be in the future if we are to solve many of the complex problems facing our society today and that will face us for many years to come. It will be the manager's responsibility to help define the nature of these ideals—practical ideals—and to take a leading role in shaping them into specific action. In recent years there has been too much withdrawal and criticism characterized by the attitude of 'it's too big a problem for me to have an effect upon so why bother.' "The fact is, however, that what does happen is the result of great numbers of individuals having done something." Because of their influential positions managers now and in the future should make significant contributions to the general welfare, Gilman asserts. 11


TECH'S 31-21 win over Texas Tech in the December 31 Gator Bowl was right out of the old novels that boys once read before the days of the Beatles, Playboy, and Peyton Place—you might remember their unlikely heroes, Frank Merriwell or Tom Swift or even the mild-mannered reporter who stepped into the phone booth to become Superman. This welcomed bowl win, first for a Dodd team in nine years and four tries, produced the most unlikely hero of them all—the boy who rode the bench all season and then came on in his final game to win one before the biggest audience he had played before. The hero's name—Jerry Priestley, a team man who has been showing it for five long years of frustration which included a freshman season in which injuries kept him out of action, a red-shirt year, a season of gathering splinters back of Billy Lothridge, a year of splitting duty with another quarterback, and his final season when he had to give way to Kim King after the Vandy game to spend his time on punting duty and waiting foj that big chance that didn't arrive until 2:06 before 60,127 fans—largest in Gator Bowl history.

Coach Dodd had hinted to reporters during Tech's final workout in Jacksonville that Priestley might have to pull the Jackets out in this one. But Dodd was talking of a different injury than the one that brought the senior into the game. King had twisted an ankle in a practice in Atlanta earlier in the week, a fact that only Dodd, trainer Buck Andel, team physician Dr. Lamont Henry, and King knew about until after the game. To keep his team and coaches from undue worry about this game, Dodd had had King eased into Dr. Henry's room in the hotel for his pregame treatment. On Tech's fourth offensive play of the game, King came out holding his left arm from a bad shoulder bruise that eliminated him as a long passing threat for the afternoon and brought Priestley on stage. The Jackets were trailing, 0*7, when Priestley came in as the Red Raiders took the opening kickoff and went in on just 10 plays. With the Jackets at their own 40, Priestley sent Jimmy Brown, playing wingback at the time, down the West sidelines on a twisting, dodging 22-yard gain off the ancient statue-of-liberty play. Giles Smith put it on the Texas Tech 29 with a 6-yard burst off right tackle and Lenny Snow 12

appeared back on the scene to move the ball to the Raiders' one on five straight carries. The sensational sophomore, picked most valuable player for the Jackets in the game, broke a Gator Bowl record for the most carries during a game with 35 for 136 yards. However, this drive failed to produce a score when Priestley slipped on the next play and lost two back to the 3-yard line and a field goal attempt was blocked by the Raiders. Texas Tech drove into field goal range on the following series but missed from the 32 and here is where Priestley and the Jackets showed their mettle. Starting from their own 20, they advanced to the Texas Tech 47 on four straight bursts by Snow, who was well for the first time all season, another rather well-kept secret by the Dodd-Henry-Andel trio. The sensational sophomore had played since the Texas A & M game with two cracked ribs that though they offered no threat of permanent damage were the cause of a great deal of pain to Snow during the rest of the year. After Snow's series, Priestley went six on his own on a keeper and Smith picked up another two. Brown then scampered 10 on the wingback statue and Smith came back for another four. Snow arrived back on the scene and carried 19 yards in four attempts and Smith went in from the two on second and goal. Henry tied it up with 10:31 remaining in the second quarter. Priestley may not have won the game with these two drives but he certainly convinced the Georgia Tech team that they could win it even without their great sophomore quarterback. The Jackets got another chance immediately when sophomore Tommy Elliott knocked the ball from the arms of All-America halfback Donny Anderson on the kickoff runback and fell on it at the Raiders' 26. King came back in to run the team and called on Snow twice for eight yards and then kept for one. Smith came back in and broke up the middle for eight but on the next play he fumbled and Yander recovered for the Raiders at the one. Anderson, Texas Tech's most valuable player who signed one of those mammoth pro contracts after the game, got out to the four and then reprised for another four yards to the eight. But on the next play, Sammy Burke ignored Anderson's credentials and jarred the strong Texan with a tackle that forced a punt attempt from the nine. The Texas Tech center FEBRUARY 1966

sailed the ball over Anderson's head and out of the end zone for a safety and the Jackets were in front, 9-7. Brown zigged and zagged all the way from his 25 to the Texas Tech 48 on the ensuing free kick play but a clipping penalty put the Jackets back to their own 32. Snow went nine and fullback Tommy Carlisle added two more for a first at the 43. Snow then passed the 100-yard mark for the day with another 7-yard advance on the pet Jacket play of the afternoon, a tailback off-tackle that started to one side and featured a cutback just past the line of scrimmage. After Smith managed five on a pair of tries, the Jackets drew a penalty for motion and King threw his first pass of the day with but 2:33 remaining in the half. It was good to Craig Baynham for 23 yards and a first down at the 20. Snow got four on the zig-zag counter and King managed three on a sneak and seven more on a sweep for a first down at the six. King lost one and then his sore arm betrayed him as he tried to hit Baynham in the back of the end zone with a pair of Raiders in front of him. He couldn't get the loft on the ball and a Texan intercepted to stop the threat. The half ended with our side holding a shaky 9-7 lead. Tech forced the first punt of the game following the kickoff that started the second half. It came with 13:42 remaining in the third quarter and it went only 25 yards due to a great rush by the Jacket line. Ed Varner, another senior playing his finest game as a Jacket, got four up the middle, and King came back with a keeper for 17 before the last man in his way finally halted him. Snow added five and King kept for another seven. Snow pulled the zig-zag for four and then fullback Carlisle slashed off-tackle for eight and a first down at the 3-yard line. After failing on his first try, Snow went in from the two, and Henry made it 16-7 with 10 flat on the clock. Just 55 seconds later, Texas Tech had cut it to 16-14 with the help of a 15-yard tax for a personal foul on the kickoff and a spectacular onehanded, over-the-shoulder catch by Anderson, who now looked worth the rumored $600,000 the Packers were paying for him. After stopping the Jackets, the Raiders went out in front, 16-21, on a 71-yard drive that took but six plays. The Jackets came right back with a drive of their own that covered 70 yards in 12 plays with the key ac-

tion being on a Priestley-to-Fortier pass in a third-and-12 situation after the senior had replaced King following another pass that confirmed the Tech coaches' guess that King's arm had about had it. Priestley went in for the score on a sneak from the one and got back in again on a determined run and dive for the two points to make it 24-21 .with 13:07 remaining in the game. Another senior, Tom Bleick, settled the issue with a runback of 28 yards on his interception of a Tommy Wilson pass on the third play following the kickoff. With the ball on the Texas Tech 13, Varner broke up the middle for the score on a draw that caught the Raiders looking the other way. Later in the quarter, Bleick, who signed with the Baltimore Colts after the game, intercepted another Wilson pass and returned it 29 yards to the 24. The Jackets, however, couldn't move it and Henry missed a field goal, just one play before the game became history. The offensive show predicted by everyone following the announcement of the Tech-Tech match came off with a vengeance. The two teams piled up 837 yards total offense (net) and broke three Gator Bowl recordsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Snow's aforementioned 35 carries, Tech's 23 first downs rushing and Wilson's 40 pass attempts. 13

It's been that kind of a season for Whack Hyder's sophomore-oriented lineup. The Jackets opened the season with a run-away win over TCU, 112-87. Then they took to the road to lose to SMU, 73-83, and win from Rice, 9687. Back in the normally friendly confines of the Alexander Memorial Coliseum, the running runts dropped an 14

After breaking the home court losing string with a 92-73 win over William and Mary, Hyder's youngestteam-ever gave Louisville a scare in the Hurricane Classic at Miami before bowing, 48-54, and then won the consolation game by an 83-40 margin over Boston University.

The recruiting business is full of misconceptions and Neil DeRosa is doing his best to set the issues straight with both students and industry

THINGS ARE NOT WHAT THEY US ID CO BE

F

OK five years A. P. (Neil) DeRosa has been bringing soon-to-graduate students and company recruiters to the bargaining table. This past year alone some 1,000 undergraduates and 300 Master of Science and Ph.D. students had more than 19,000 interviews arranged through his placement office. From 650 to 750 companies came to the campus looking for talent. There are many misconceptions in the recruiting business today and DeRosa does his best to set the issues 16

straight by leveling with both companies and students. Several times a year he does this in a formal way with a short course for company recruiters that is sponsored by Tech's Department of Continuing Education. Here are some of the things he tells the recruiters: "A major problem that many of you have," he says, "is that you basically want to hire the same student that you wereâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;twenty years ago. Such students are not available today. At Tech

there has been at least a 35 percent change in the curricula in the past ten years and, of course, the world we live in today is a lot different from that a decade ago." He goes on to explain that he believes this attitude of looking for the student of another age is not just characteristic of recruiters but of many companies. "It is astounding to me how many of our basic industries have literally not changed their methods of doing things in the last 25 years, or TECH

if they have adjusted to new ideas, are not communicating this to the public or to the students. As a result students all want to bypass these traditional industries for the more exciting fields like space and petrochemicals where they can do the most with their educational backgrounds." DeRosa tells the recruiters that today's students are more intellectual than their predecessors and particularly want jobs that challenge them. This means that they want more responsibility, sooner—something too few companies want to trust a new employee with. "This is one reason so many of our brightest young men are going with the smaller, new companies," he says. "These companies offer opportunity and sell it with enthusiasm. Some older and larger companies would be able to hire more and better young FEBRUARY 1966

Meanwhile the Alumni Placement System goes on

Doing business at the same stand N the basement of the Carnegie Building that once held the Georgia Tech Book stacks, there is now a lobby and receptionist's desk unlike any other on the Tech campus or for that matter on any campus in the country. This does not mean that the physical arrangements are glamorous or exceptional. In fact they are barely adequate. The important feature of this place is that it is where Tech alumni can come to get leads and to receive considerate and competent help in their search for employment. The receptionist who dwells here tending to the placement needs of Tech alumni is Mary Peeks Bowie who worked into her present occupation seven or eight years ago (she can't remember how long) because alumni came to her with their employment problems and she seemed to have a flair for assisting them. Now they come in greater numbers than ever â&#x20AC;&#x201D; many to change geographical locations, others to find more opportunity, and some have suddenly come to realize they are in fields that they really do not like. Every week the Alumni Placement Service issues a bulletin that lists job opportunities. It is a simple, effective low-cost medium for getting many prospective employers and employees together. Any alumnus requesting the bulletin will receive it for one quarter and then be dropped from the mailing list unless he returns a post csfd saying he wants to continue getting it. As many as 1,800 alumni receive the bulletin during a year. Alumni who want to discuss the opportunities available or their own qualifications with someone before they seek a job are welcomed by Mrs. Bowie, as well as by Associate Alumni Secretary Tom Hall who helps with this in addition to his other responsi-

bilities. Dean Emeritus George Griffin, who originated this service years ago, is now specializing in helping those alumni over 45 years of age who have more problems finding jobs than the younger men. "It is a most remarkable group," one alumnus who recently got a new job through the service said. "They try to do everything they can to help you and give you a lot of support in the form of confidence and hope." "Some people," Mary Bowie says, "are lucky enough to fall into just what they want in a job the first time aroundâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but others aren't, and they'd be fools to stay in jobs when they know they are misplaced. And they shouldn't consider themselves jobdrifters because they have had sense enough to change. I remember one man who explained his job experiences with, 'I've eliminated these things. Now I know what I don't want to do.' " "Of those receiving the bulletin some are actively looking for another job while others are just more curious than anything else," she explains. "There are some men who just like to read and some who are happier with their own jobs when they see what else is being offered. But there are others I hate to send the bulletin to. I can think of one I wouldn't dare put back on the list because it might make him restless, and we had too hard a time getting him to take his present job." Mary Bowie admits to sometimes having to urge those who are hesitant or who have too many preconceived notions about what they have to have in a job, to go ahead and apply for a job or to accept offers once they have them. "There was one group of five that stayed in my office for just about three solid months," she sighs. "They almost formed a club and had a good

time sitting here talking about what they wanted to do, what they had done, and practically everything else." Then there was the opposite case of the man who came by the office once a week for a minute or so to get a bulletin hot off the mimeograph machine but who never stayed or said anything until Mary Bowie asked him one day: "Would you like to talk about a job?" He did. Tom Hall and Mary Bowie both emphasize that while they are not counselors they are willing to listen to alumni. "They usually talk it out themselves sooner or later. We believe they have to think out their own problemsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or sink." A great many companies are now using the Tech bulletin to find recruits and Mary Bowie can recall at least one case of a man finding a job through the bulletin who is now, in his new capacity, using the publication for hiring others. She wishes that more companies would publish complete job descriptions instead of placing so much emphasis on applicants having particular degrees. "Let the applicant decide, based on the description, if he thinks he is well enough qualified to apply for the job. I think many recruiters are too preoccupied with degrees because they do not know enough about the curriculums of various schools to know that men getting certain degrees often take courses that enable them to do jobs that are outside their fields of major interests." One of the best features of the Tech Alumni Placement Service is that there are no charges to alumni or to the companies. Job openings are ordinarily listed for three weeks unless a company indicates that a position is filled. Approximately twenty percent of the alumni seeking jobs keep resumes in either open or closed ( employers cannot leaf through the closed file) files in the alumni office so their qualifications can immediately be sent to employers if the alumni staff feels there may be a match. Hall believes that in the future as the case load becomes heavier, this process of matching resumes with job descriptions might be computerized. In this way, the possibilities would be narrowed down much faster. But, in any case, the primary responsibility for the successful operation of the placement service will continue to lie with the alumni who turn to it for jobs. The alumni office just lets them know it does care about their fates. TECH ALUMNUS

named to the new Advisory Council on College Chemistry, a national panel of 31 leading scientists devoted to improving undergraduate chemistry instruction. Dr. Eberhardt was chosen on the basis of his reputation as an outstanding chemical educator. The Advisory Council, on which he will serve for three years, is the chemistry counterpart of such other National Science Foundation supported organizations as the Commission on Engineering Education, the Committee on the Undergraduate Program in Mathematics and the Commission on College Physics. The Council's plan of action calls for developing more imaginative course offerings in chemistry, better learning tools, improved textbooks, innovations in laboratory experiment instruction, placing greater emphasis on the training and re-training of college chemistry teachers, and the development of more stimulating interdepartmental programs for nonchemistry majors.

Though showered with icy pellets by students, administrators, and the public, the professor stands as one of the last glowing examples of the Independent Manâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;king of his classroom, lord of his laboratory, high priest to academic truth! He is a free-wheeling e n t r e p r e n e u r who, with great energy, capitalizes his research efforts with grants and safeguards his professional advancement by taking an active role in his national sub-specialty group. Pity the poor administrator who is responsible for maintaining some kind of government over many such independent agents. Such a man must compete with other administrators at other schools to acquire and keep the prima donnas. Then he must provide, somehow, for their needsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; must find additional space for every individual managing to get a grant. For every grant means there will be more exquisite, exciting equipment and more laboratory assistants. Never is there enough space or enough adequate facilities to go around. But in the eyes of the professor, the administrator is an obstructionistâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; a member of the Organization. And the professor views the Organization with a suspicion not dissimilar to that often directed towards the federal government by states righters. "The less organization the better," the professor says to himself. "It must not encroach upon my rights. Its power should be sharply circumscribed and it should be checkmated when necessary by powerful faculty committees." We once knew a school where the Administration Building was always referred to by both students and faculty members as The Kremlin, although the Organization there was led by a notoriously mild-mannered man, completely devoid of dictatorial tendencies. Suspicious of authority, the rampart lions of professorial individualism create a climate t h a t is almost always seething with real or potential intra- or inter-departmental battles, and rebellions against the administration. As in the Biblical days, there are always wars and rumors of wars which are fought with verbal spears and arrows fired by highly intelligent and articulate foes. And whether there can ever be peace on any campus for any considerable length of time seems highly questionable. For basically an educational institution is organized according to two directly opposed concepts of government. Professors prefer the pure democracy where each is an autonomous, free agent, while administrators, must of necessity, adhere to a system t h a t is more centralized, and heirarchial. They must ask and demand t h a t individuals sacrifice for the good of the whole and of a particular educational institution. Administrators, too, were once members of faculties, but their thought must make a transition to new patterns. Now issues, causes, and personalities may obscure the conflicts arising from this basic difference in concepts of authority, b u t a political theorist could have a marvelous time dissecting the average campus. For here alone in all our world every man believes he is a chief. V1.V.L. 20

Which is right for you ?

If your hearing is normal, the telephone handset on the left is for you. It's what you use now. But if hearing is a problem, the one on the right may be a help.

Several thousand bedfast children around the country keep in touch with classroom work from home or hospital via two-way Bell System amplified telephone circuits.

It's a transistorized handset for the hard of hearing that has been developed by engineers at Bell Telephone Laboratories.

For the blind, there are switchboards that operate by touch. Other devices for other impairments are being worked on.

The small, thumb-operated knob lets the hearer adjust the volume of the caller's voice as on a radio, making it as loud as desired. The handset fits inconspicuously on any phone base, in any color. It's one of a number of telephone aids for the handicapped.

Some of this equipment looks like the regular thingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;some doesn't.

For the speechless, there is an electronic artificial larynx, also developed at Bell Laboratories.. This provides a steady tone in the throat cavity which can be modulated into words by shaping mouth and lips.

But the point of it all is to give the handicapped service that's as close to the regular as we can make it. If you'd like more information about any of these helpful special services, just call a Bell System Business Office, or ask a telephone man.

Says â&#x20AC;&#x201D; MELVIN WEISZ, C.L.U., The Gold Agency, Detroit

"My 15 years as a high school teacher were personally rewarding and now, as a representative for Mass Mutual, I'm still enjoying some of the satisfactions of teaching. I'm now educating adults in the art of solving their financial problems. Helping people save money, create estates, and guaranteeing their families the resources they'd need in case of premature death." "Financially, the rewards of a career with Mass Mutual have been gratifying, too.

'1 left a secure, satisfying job after 15 years for a new and even more rewarding career!'7

In fact, each of the 5 years I've been at it, I've put in force over $1 million in life insurance! This has made possible foreign travel, a new home, a college education for our son, and the leisure time to participate more fully in community activities!" "And Mass Mutual representatives are a skilled group of professionals who work for themselves, but not by themselves. Backing them is the prestige of a company over 100 years old, with over

$3 billion in assets." If you're looking for the same rewards that appealed to Mr. Weisz in his new career, write a personal letter to: Charles H. Schaaff, President, Mass Mutual, Springfield, Massachusetts. He's always interested in hearing from a good man! MASSACHUSETTS LIFE INSURANCE
