Negotiations are still pendingc
with the Executive Board of ther
American Federation of Musicians
which will decide whether or not
Ray Charles, Inc. will be requiredY
to refund money to the Universityt
Development Council and the Stu-K
dent Relations Board, the Bud-,
Mor Agency, which is handling
the case, said yesterday.'
If refunded, the money would be'
used to return to the purchasers
the second half of the money they
paid for the tickets to the concert
last spring and to replace funds
spent on publicity and other pre-
parations for the concert.
Half of the ticketholder's money
was refunded by the council andy
the board after the last part of
the Ray Charles concert had to be;
called off because Charles did not
arrive from Chicago.
Blamed Weather
The evening of the concert
Charles said he had not come be-
cause inclement weather had pre-
vented his flight in his private

signed by Ray Charles, Inc. was,
not kept, the board and council

can Federation of Musicians in an.
effort to have their $1,800 deposit
plus their expenses returned,
Richard L. Kennedy of the Devel-
opment Council said.
Ray Charles, Inc. was given 90'
days to reply to these allegations.
Through the Bud-Mor Agency,
the board and council presented
their rebuttal to the union. Since
then Ray 'Charles, Inc., has re-
plIed with its rebuttal.
2 Sore Hand
In their reply Ray Charles, Inc.,
- explained Charles' absence by say-

ing that he was under a doctor's
care at that time for a sore hand,
not that bad weather had pre-
vented his trip.
Kennedy pointed out that when
he presented two concerts. two
days later his hand was bandaged.
So there is evidently some validity
to Charles' claims, although the
seriousness of the injury is yet to
be determined.
Moris Richman of the Bud-Mor
Agency also added that the entire
first part of the program was pre-
sented as booked, so the concert-
goers did s'ee at least half of the
full performance.
The decision as to whether Ray
Charles, Inc., will have to give the
money remains for the union's
executive council to determine at,
a later date.
Groups Set
Work' Rules.


Workers with strong group loy,-
alties are not always the best pro-
ducers as they. set their own
standards, which may be high or
low, Rensis .Likert, director of the
University's Institute for Social
Research, noted.
It is a major responsibility of
management to make the goals
of the informal group coincide
with those'of the entire organiza-
tion, Likert stated in his recently
published book, "New Patterns of
Membership to a highly loyal
work group gives the individual a
feeling of support and security,
even when he is restricting pro-
duction, he said.
These groups tend to boost
rather than curtail output. They
promote an easier flow of work
between members in consideration
of individual loads.
Members of these groups tend

In recognition of the difficulties
faced each year by thousands of
manual workers forced into retire-

combined with the great increase
in leisure time and disruption of

The project will represent the
combined efforts of the gerontol-

Labor and Industrial Relations, a
joint organization of the Univer-
sity and Wayne State University.
It will be directed by Woodrow W.
Hunter of the two organizations.
The United States Department
of Health, Education and Welfare,
Office of Education will provide!
$75,000 which represents a major
share of the project's cost.
Four specific types of materials
will be prepared: subject matter

toward their job' and company,
Likert added.
Some of the nation's'best man-
aged and most efficient firms rely
on a pyramid of informal groups
to - coordinate company activities
at the various corporate levels
from worker to president.
To be most effective, these
groups must serve as communica-
tion channels throughout the
company structures, Likert ex-
plained. This communication can
be achieved through the "linking
pin" structure of these groups
where members carry ideas and
attitudes from one level to anoth-
Booth To Aid
Grad Students
The Graduate Student Council
has set up a booth in Rackham
Bldg. to aid in orienting incom-
ing graduate students.
Aside from answering the ques-
tions of 'incoming graduate stu-
dents, GSC members distributed
various registration materials for
the graduate school.
The council had earlier mailed
handbooks and a map of Ann Ar-
bor to the 1,500 incoming gradu-
ate students. The' materials con-
tained suggestions to aid the ori-
entation and statistics about the
Ann Arbor area.,
The GSC also, is circulating a
petition asking Congress to make
changes in' the income tax law to
aid graduate students. It asks that
an additional $600 exemption be
given to self supporting graduate
students, that tax allowances be
made for direct educational ex-
'penses, and that similar provi'
sions be made for research as-
George Sollish, GSC president,
estimated that several hundred
graduate students have already
signed the petition.
