Study Finds Executives Skirt Corporation Anti-Bias Policy

NEW YORK (JTA) — A Uni-
versity of Michigan study of dis-
crimination in executive selection
in large corporations has indi-
cated that liberal hiring and pro-
motion policies of management are
often circumvented by key men in
their own ranks if top management
does not do more than simply an-
nounce equal opportunity policies.

The study, by the university's
Institute for Social Research Sur-
vey Res a r c h Center was an-
nounced by Orin Lehman, chair-
man of the board of governors of
the American Jewish Committee,
which owned its 62nd annual meet-
ing here Tuesday.

Lehman said that "although the
study deals specifically with oppor-
tunities for Jewish executives, its
implications extend to other min-
ority groups!' The four companies
chosen for the study are large,
diversified manufacturers in the
Cleveland - Akron area which all
have formal policies of equal em-
ployment opportunities calling for
hiring and promotion according to
ability. All enjoy a reputation of
being "open" to Jews and the per-
centage of Jews in their managerial
ranks exceeds what is believed to
be the national average.

The researchers found that pro-
cedures set up by the companies
to implement equal employment
opportunity policies were going un-

noticed by a large proportion of
executives. However, even when
such measures were noticed, they
'did not in themselves prove to be
a deterrent to discrimination.

The study found that anti-Semitic
attitudes were least frequent
among managers who were most
highly educated and whose original
training was oriented toward ca-
reers other than industry.
One of France's foremost po-
litical analysts told the annual
meeting that the current revolt in
France might spell the end of the
deGaulle regime.
"If the deGaulle regime does
Survive, it will be so weakened
that it will never again be the
same," Raymond Aron said at a
luncheon at the Americana
Hotel, held in connection with
the 62nd annual meeting of the
American Jewish Committee.
Aron, currently a professor at
the beleaguered Sorbonne and the
Institut des Sciences Politiques,
has been a columnist since 1947
for the Paris newspaper Le Figaro,
and is often called "the Walter
Lippmann of France."
Aron predicted that deGaulle
would not change his policy toward
Israel because the French presi-
dent wanted to maintain the global
balance between the U.S. and the
Soviet Union. Despite U.S. involve-
ment in Vietnam, Aron added, the

U.S. can work diplomatically with
the Soviet Union to persuade her
exert pressure on the Arab
countries to work for peace, while
the U.S. does likewise with Israel.
Aron said he viewed the recent
vote for the neo-Nazi NPD in West
Germany as representing a dis-
contented element that had no
other party outside the Establish-
ment to turn to. Its success will
continue, he predicted, so long as
there is a divided Germany.
