Blue J"Welcome to Michigan"
orientation folders were mailed
last Friday to almost every in-
state LSA transfer applicant -
both those accepted and rejected.
Herbert Sigman, orientation di-
rector, explained yesterday that
the IBM program used to obtain
the mailing labels failed to include
the key variable "admitted" and

as a result labels were made forj
all applicants.
Sigman described his office as
"innundated with calls" and said
that "at worst the callers were
disappointed, at best they were
understanding, but fortunately no
one was really bitter."
As of yesterday the Office of
Admissions had informed over 15
callers that they had not been

THE UNIVERSITY MEDICAL SCHOOL received ~a $14,030
grant recently from the American Medical Association's Edu-
cation Research Foundation for education and research of medi-
cal students. The allocation includes $11,215 donated by medical
school alumni through the fund as well as the University's share
of undesignated gifts to the ERF. Medical schools at Wayne State
University and Michigan State University shared about $12,000
in AMA-ERF funds.
A NATIONAL URBAN LEAGUE OFFICIAL has challenged
just recently that social work practice soon will definitely be
professionals in the field of social welfare.
Alexander J. Allen, the league's Eastern regional director,
told a conference on "Meeting Social Welfare Manpower Needs"
here Thursday (May 18) that social work practice soon will be
vastly different due to the irounting pressures on manpower and
staff use. The conference was co-sponsored by the University of
Michigan's School of Social Wcrk and the school's alumni asso-
ciation.
"The appearance of the r~cniprofessional aide on the health
and welfare scene not only means new careers for the poor," said
Allen, "but it also means new careers for the professionals as
well."
But Allen warned that befce.. professionals can be freed from
routine administrative and diu.ect service tasks by nonprofes-
sionals, a "profound change wiUl have to take place in almost
every aspect of what we have traditionally considered the social
welfare field."
Nonprofessional social wc! kers will be asked to help solve
problems that they have already experienced. Their language will
be indigenous, their communication will be direct and their iden-
tification with the person they are serving will be strong, Allen
said.
He stated that unless social welfare professionals develop
entirely new concepts of employment to meet the needs of the
new kind of employe, the goal of motivating nonprofessionalsto
seek higher horizons will go unfulfilled.
ST RESS INDIVIDUAL NEEDS:

admitted and apologized for any
anxiety caused by the University's
error, according to assistant direc-
tor Clifford F. Sogren.
Sigman, who has been at his
present post for only the past six
months, blamed the programming
error on his "lack of familiarityj
with computers." He stressed that
the fault rested with him, rather
than with the Data Processing
Center, saying, "It is not their
responsibility, they do what \We
tell them to program."
Sigman indicated that there was
little that his office could now
do to remedy the situation. For
it would take at least several
weeks before they could possibly
send a letter of apology to all in-
state rejected or cancelled appli-
cants. "And by that time," said
Sigman, "almdst all involved
would have disregarded the folder
or called or written the Univer-
sity."
The error was compounded
when the folders were mailed
"without checking to see why so
many more labels arrived than we
had anticipated," he said. The
Orientation Office had about 950
folders printed announcing sum-
mer orientation programs for
transfer students, basing that
figure on last year's experience.
In-State Labels
The number of folders that the
Orientation Office did have, cor-
responded r o u g h l y with the
amount of in-state mailing labels
so the orientation folders were
sent out only to in-state transfer
students. Sigman explained that'
they sent the folders to in-state
students "because we felt that
they were more likely to attend
summer orientation."
This is the first year that corn-
puters have been used directly in
preparing for orientation. In the
past the admissions office has
provided the orientation office
with an IBM card for every ad-
mitted student containing the
data necessary for planning orien-
tation. Since the admissions office
provided only IBM cards for ad-
mitted and fully paid students, it
'was previously impossible for
orientation information to be sent
to an unadmitted student.
Despite this mishap Sigman
said, "We intend to continue using
computers, for they will in the
future give us far more accurate
data, with fewer errors than unders
the old system."
'Safety Valve'
Orientation information for in-
coming freshmen has been sent
out previously without any prob-
lem with the computer. But Sig-7
man stressed that if there had
been a computer error there would
have been "an automatic safety
valve, for the orientation forms
were mailed out in the same en-
velope as the requests for the en-1
rollment deposit.
There is now the problem of
getting orientation information to
out-of-state transfer students. For
all the orientation office has now
are mailing labels for all out-of-
state LSA transfer applicants. Sig-
man indicated that if they could
get programming time, they would
"rerun the entire computer pro-
gram for out-of-state."
He said that if this is not pos-
sible, it is conceivable that orien-
tation information will not be
sent this year to out-of-state
transfer students. He stressed
fthat this was not that importantt
Ssince "transfer rientation is more
like fall registration than fresh-
man orientation."
