NEW YORK-It is important to
know exactly what automation is
and how it differs in nature from
other technological advances, in-
cluding those of the 19th ,Century
industrial revolution.
Prof. Charles C. Killingsworth
of Michigan State University de-
fines it as "mechanization of sen-
sory, control and thought process-
es." He offers as a rudimentary
example the ordinary household
This gadget makes a continuous
analysis, as it were, of room tem-
perature and decides when to send

a signal to the furnace to turn it-
self on and off. All the operator
has to do is "instruct" the thermo-
stat, that is, set a simple control
for a desired result.
Punch Card
In a complex automated system
the instructions are contained on
a punched card or tape or other
Thus a plant in Cleveland can
produce 200 cubic yards of ready
mixed concrete an hour with no
human labor at all-just someone
to select the punched card for the
right mixture and amount and
push the button. _ .
"It appears possible," says Prof.
Edward B. Shils of the University
of Pennsylvania's Wharton School

Johnson Announces Program
To Cut Employment Figures

"that almost any physical process
controllable by man can be made
to control itself."
Another significant feature of
automation is that machines, per-
forming tasks beyond the capacity
of mere humans, now can do jobs
which heretofore were impractical;
if not impossible.
Last summer a computer was
installed in the Toronto City Hall.
It receives continuous traffic in-'
formation from 2000 underground
sensors spotted throughout the
city, analyzes the data many times'
a second, and sends corrective sig-
nals to traffic lights at 1000 in-
tersections. No combination of
human effort could match the

NICOSIA-Greek and Turkish

bulldozers, mortars and bazookas
in Ktima yesterday, ignoring Unit-
ed Nations efforts to secure a
lasting cease-fire in the flaming
west coast city.
After 12 hours of brutal fighting,
surrounded Turks appeared on the
point of surrender, a British
army spokesman said. However, a
Turkish spokesman declared they
would never surrender.
NEW YORK-The stock market
encountered a wave of profit tak-
ing yesterday but had enough buy-
ing power to overcome it and wind
up with another gain by a narrow
margin. The final Dow Jones av-

20 rails down .19, 15 utilities
down .24. and 65 stocks up .07.

Favor Hannah
For Senator
DETROIT ()--The Detroit News
said yesterday a poll shows that,
Michigan State University Presi-
dent John A. Hannah towers above
all others seriously mentioned as
possible Republican candidate for
United States senator in Michi-1
gan this year.
Hannah has said, however, he
is not a candidate and will op-
pose any attempts to draft him.
The poll was conducted for the
News by a private opinion research'
company. The results indicate that
Hannah would take 45.9 per cent of
the vote in afour-way primary.
John B. Martin, Republican na-
tional committeeman, would get 34
per cent; James E. O'Neil, State
Board of Education member, -9.1
per cent, and Ewdard A. Meany,
Grand Haven businessman, 11 per

icans for better job opportunities.
Johnson called on Congress and
the nation to help make the policy
work by meshing the needs of the
work force with basic educational,
economic, scientific, health and so-
cial welfare programs.
"We must seek to develop more
completely our people's talents and
to employ those talents fully,":
Johnson said.
Active Manpower
"'There must,i n brief, be an ac-
tive manpower policy--to comple-
ment our new national attack on
poverty," he said.
Johnson's first manpower report
to Congress noted that more Amer-
icans than ever before held jobs,
"but unemployment p e r s i s t e d
grimly despite 1963's strong eco-
nomic advance."
Noting that unemployment av-
eraged 4.2 million over the past
year, Johnson said:
"Such a waste of our human re-
sources and loss of potential pro-
duction cannot be tolerated."
' . Education Need
'Johnson placed heavy emphasis
on the need for education to give
both young and older workers more
and better opportunities for jobs.
"Let us not shortchange our fu-

The Harvard Computation Lab-
oratory put a computer to work
five years ago comparing nearly
5000 ancient Biblical manuscripts
to find out which were copies of
the same original text. It would
have taken scholars literally hun-
dreds of years to do the job un-
Seek Price-Fixers
The Justice Department is using
a computer to seek patterns of
similarity in thousands of bids
submitted at all levels of govern-
ment in an effort to spot price
rigging. Human detectives would
find the amount of paperwork
utterly unmanageable.
Catching swindlers and advanc-
ing Biblical research may be un-
tarnished benefits, but there is no
avoiding the fact that 'this new
wave of change also has a cruel'
undertow. Automation eliminates
.jobs. And it is eliminating them
at a time when the work force is
mushrooming as never before.
Although' automation's toll has
been heaviest in basic manufac-
turing-where job security has re-
placed wag'es as the number one
item in labor contract bargaining
--the erosion doesn't stop there.
Machines also are cutting an ever
widening swath through the ser-
vice industries, clerical ranks, even
middle management executive jobs.
Many managers are hired to
recommend actions based on accu-
rate perception of data according.
to a given set of rules-decision
making. A computer, with its in-
fallible memory of an almost lim-
itless number of ,facts, is far more
reliable and much faster.
Change Job
A management service company
studied the effects of office auto-
mation and concluded:
"Computers will affect the na-
ture of the manager's job, and
th~ey. will have' fundamental, im-
pact on how strategic business de-
-cisions are made and plans de-
veloped." The machine, it said, is
destined to become "an integral
part of the decision making and
operating. apparatus of a business."
Actually the trend already has

ture," he said, noting the rapid
rise in the number of youths en-.
tering the labor market and their;
extremely high jobless rate.
Johnson mentioned the impact
of automation on employment anda
asked Congress to set up a national
commission to study it. He also an-
nounced that his own advisory3
committee on labor-management
policy will begin a similar studyI
of the impact of automation onI
workers and industry.
He said he is also creating a
presidential committee on man-
power to make a continuing study
of manpower resources and needs.
He asked Congress to enact al-'
ready pending measures affecting
youth unemployment, federal aid
to education, area redevelopment,
a study to see if_ overtime can
be reduced to spread jobs, civil,
rights measures to help minority
groups find better job opportuni-
ties, expanded coverage under the
federal minimum wage law and c
