Educators Doubt AMA Study

Two University educators ex-
ressed doubt in the results of a
udy reported by the American
edical Association which claim-
i that the creative child is most
ten the product of a not "par-
cul'arly well-adjusted" family.
The study, by Dr. Paul S. Weis-
rg and Kayla J. Springer, both

evel of creative function" and

lip in the hope of discovering

While he agreed that a "fluid"
family situation may permit the
children to seek their own solu-
tion, the study is "interesting, but
hardly definitive," Prof. Charles
F. Lehmann, dean of the school of
education, said.
Citing the study's small sam-
ple group of only thirty-two as
one reason to question its im-
portance, Prof. Lehmann added
that he doubted the family struc-
ture's ability to manufacture cre-
ativity. It seems as though all one
can do is "nurture" creativity by

the education school further not-
ed that the interest in creativity
is only recent and that none of
the tests have been proved to sup-
port reality.
The thing which is needed is to
follow these people's lives to see if,
indeed, they either are now or be-
come creative, Prof. Ketcham said.
Otherwise, the tests lack validity,
he explained.
Not only are people studying
the problem not yet sure that the
tests measure creativity, the ac-
tual substance of creativity is still
uncertain, he said. Prof. Ketcham
added that he felt "the dynamics
of creativity are much more pro-
found than this,. and it is diffi-
cult to give credence to any single
Creative Person
"The creative - person must
somehow become intrigued with
new and unusual combinations of
things and ideas which are unac-
cepted by the society in which he
grows up, and he has to be so at-
tached to these that he is willing.
to cling to them with all his ten-
aciousness," Prof. Ketcham said.
Both Prof. Lehmann and Prof.
Ketcham agreed that, while crea-
tive children may emerge from a
loose family structure, the pres-
ence of such a structure will not
necessarily produce creativity.

Senior medical students at the

The plan of cooperation will

Dr. Scott, the general super-
intendent and physician-in-chief
of the hospital, refers to the set-
up as "a very sensible arrange-
ment," and ". . . another thing the
two universities are doing togeth-

To Improve
Of English
A program entitled Project Eng-
lish has been drafted by the Gov-
ernment Office of Education to
improve the teaching of English
in schools.
The plan, developed by a team
under Sterling M. McMurrin,
commissioner of education, has
been given special priority. It will
be concerned with the entire field
of English instruction, from the
teaching of reading in elementary
schools to English composition in
high school.
To Establish Centers
As a major step, three curric-
ulum study.centers staffed by uni-
versities, colleges and state edu-
cation agencies will be established.
Their sites have not yet been de-
The program received priority
because of reports by the Nation-
al Council of Teachers of English
that 70 per cent of colleges and
universities had to provide remed-
ial work in English, and that 150,-
000 students failed college en-
trance tests in English in 1960.
Ralph C. M. Flynt, assistant
commissioner for research, said
the work would be coordinated
with current efforts by teachers,
university scholars and school ad-
Hopes For Approval
The program hopes to get con'-
gressional approval to conduct
teacher training institutes. The
curriculum centers would func-
tion for about five years. Proposals
for sites and staff selections are
being reviewed.
Still in the planning stage are
a series of conferences and con-
tracts. A proposed conference
would enable appraisal of meth-
ods and indicate priorities for re-
Conference members would be
leading scholars in the ' field of
reading instruction. "Executives
of the major professional societies
in English," will also be consulted
on selection of center sites.

The problems of human be-
havior in business and how to
solve them is the major concern
of the Foundation for Research
on Human Behavior-a national,
non-profit organization to stim-
ulate research and make its find-
ings available to the business men.
The specific areas in which the
Foundation is interested are man-
agement and organization, con-
sumer economic behavior and pub-;
lic communications.
One of the problems it has been
considering is creativity. Findings
have 'shown that high intelligence,
preference of the complex and
flexibility in an individual are
factors that correlate highly with
creative ability. At present the
Foundation is trying to develop
tests that will measure these fac-

Learning never stops for engineers at Western Electric

There's no place at Western Electric for engi-
neers who feel that college diplomas signify
the end of their education. However, if a man
can meet our quality standards and feels that
he is really just beginnin'g to learn .,., and if he
is ready to launch his career where learning is
an important part of the job and where gradu-
ate-level training on and off the job is encour-
aged - we want and needjdim.
At Western Electric, in addition to the nor-
mal learning-while-doing, engineers are en-
couraged to move ahead in their fields by sever-
al types of educational programs. Western
maintains its own full-time graduate engineer-
ing training program, seven formal manage-
ment courses, and a tuition refund plan for
out-of-hours college study.
This learning atmosphere is just one reason
why a career at Western Electric is so stimu-

to Western Electric at one of the best times in
the company's history. In the management
area alone, several thousand supervisory jobs
are expected to open up to W.E. people within
the next 10 years. And our work of building
communications equipment and systems be-
comes increasingly challenging and important
as the communications needs of our nation and
the world continue to increase.
Challenging opportunities exist now at Western
Electric for electrical, mechanical, industrial, and chemi-
cal engineers, as well as physical science, liberal arts,
and business majors. All qualified applicants will re-
ceive careful consideration for employment without
regard to race, creed, color or national origin. For more
information about Western Electric, write College Rela-
tions, Western Electric Company, Room 6206, 222

arrange for a Western Electric interview when ur
