Profile: Barbie Greenberg

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the
first of a continuing series of pro-
files of seniors who have led major
student organizations this year.)
If it is permissible to speak of
a "new look" in sorority women,
Barbara Greenberg certainly has:
the look.
Or perhaps it would be more ac-
curate to say that during her term7
of office this year. as Penhellenic
Association president, Barbie has
done a greet deal to dispel the
old myth of the pretty, empty-
headed little sorority woman who
pledges for a social whirl and little
"The emphasis of Panhel has
certainly not been on a social
level this year," she says. "The;
questions I've had to deal with ,
have been mostly questions of val-
ues and evaluations. The job has
been largely analytical and the
issues are anything but superfi-
Susan Stillerman, '62, newly in-
stalled Panhel president says,
"Barbara's leadership has been
Judicious, perceptive, and highly
successful. Her keen insight and{
enthusiasm have done a great deal
to further the ideals and goals
of Panhel and the University.
'Extraordinary Asset'
'Barb has been an extraordinary
asset to her organization. She has
been a crusader for human dig-
nity and a well-respected friend to
a great many people."
During her years in the Univer-
sity, Barbie, who has majored in
journalism and earlier worked on
her high school newspaper, has
been interested in the study of
"the principles of democracy and
crucial questions"
She is vitally concerned with
education and progress at all so-
cial levels, and ?anhel is no ex-

serve the old function of inculcat-
ing the social graces."
She believes that as the aca-
demic potential and diversity of
background of entering University
students increases, the sorority
will have to meet increasingly
strict demands and re-evaluate its
"This is what we were attempt-
ing to do in our first workshop,"
Barbie says. "It is time we took an
honest look at the sorority sys-
tem to find out exactly where it
is and where it is going."
Academic Programs
She sees a need for much greater
emphasis on cultural and aca-
demic programs. "We must work
on integrating the goals of the
sorority system with the goals of
the University," she says, stress-
ing the fact that "we 'are not to
be considered apart from the rest
of the University community or in
any way exclusive."
(Barbie believes many of the
affiliate system's problems are due
to misconceptions on the part of
the independent students.)
If a sorority is to create a stim-

ulating environment, she believes
it should contain many different
women and certainly not one gen-
eral "type." "This doesn't mean
at all that everyone who pledges
a sorority must be 'perfect in her
own way,"' she adds.

Odiorne Asks Tax Incentives
To Maintain Full Employment

Through tax incentives for per-
sonnel training, the federal gov-
ernment could. help business meet
the problems of maintaining full
employment in the midst of rap-
idly changing technology, George
Odiorne, of the Bureau of Indus-
trial Relations, suggested yester-
Delivering the keynote address
at the seventeenth annual con-
ference of the American Society
of Training Directors held in Phil-
adelphia, Odiorne noted that bus-
iness spends $25 to $30 billion
annually for on the job training
of workers.
This is an amount equal to all
corporate profits and about the
same as the nation's total expen-
ditures on formal education, he
Immense Investment'
However, Odiorne warned that
an "immense investment" will be
necessary in the training area in
the next ten years.
The investment will be needed

the labor force, train six million
skilled craftsmen, upgrade three to
four million managerial employes,
and handle changes in the compo-
sition and size of the labor force,.
Odiorne noted.
He suggested three classifica-
tions of on-the-job training which
will require increased investment.
The first, to be met by current ex-
penses, involves work simplifica-
tion, sales techniques, quality con-
trol, safety training, and operat-
ing procedures training.
Long-Term Capital
The second which would be
financed by long-term working
capital includes the training of
understudies for absentee or ill
workers and training for future
expansion of facilities.
The third type, paid by capital
budgeting, includes the training
of junior executives, the upgrad-
ing of workers to skilled crafts,
and executive development pro-
Odiorne said that federal tax
allowances to corporations for de-
preciation of investments made in
human capital would have an im-
mense effect on accelerating the
rate of future investment in this
Tax Arrangements
"Rather than funnel all such
developments through public fi-
nances, the government might
better accomplish the same aim
by arrangement of taxing proced-
ures which spur employers to in-
crease their investment in per-
sonal development," he said.
With such allowances, the eco-
nomic effects of skill investment
because of automation, technolog-
ical change, and unemployment
could be overcome, he noted.
"Such allowances would be
poured back into the retraining
of people, building of health serv-
ices, transfer of workers from one
place to another, adult education,
and the support of private educa-
tion by companies," Odiorne said.
