Teaching Fellowships Increase UMSEU To Expand Economic Activities

and more than 600 educational
institutions will visit the Univer-
sity offering over 81,000 jobs to

A. Lloyd explained what a com-
panya looks for when selecting
"I see the interview situation as
a two-way proposition, in which
the student is trying to sell him-
self to the company and the in-
terviewer is trying to sell his
firm to the student," Lloyd said.
He is interested in hiring a per-
son, not an auomaton, to fill a
position. The purpose of the in-
terview is to find out as much
about the individual as the inter-
viewer possibly can. Lloyd sees a
year of an individual's life as
more important than the invest-
ment the company would make
The interviewer notices many
things. In order to help categor-
ize a person, Lloyd asks "leading
questions" and watches for the
way a person will react to the
He notices such things as ap-
pearance, alertness, enthusiasm,
poise, intelligence, maturity and
leadership, which he feels are im-
portant indications of a person's
Lloyd's questions all lead to-
ward his major preoccupation,
"Does the student have the abil-
ity to think logically?"
"I expect the student to partic-
ipate in his interview as honestly
as possible," Lloyd said. If the
first impression is a successful
one, usually a second interview
and a set of specific exams is ar-
ranged for the student. Lloyd al-
so expressed the idea of having
prospective employees spend some
time on the job to get a better
idea of what the work involves.
Though the interviews are pri-
marily for graduating seniors,
Lloyd expressed a willingness to
speak to any student interested
in IBM, regardless of his year, to
help him decide if the interest is
well founded and profitable.
Lloyd sees the Bureau as an
excellent opportunity for both the
student and the employer to
make the best possible choice.

at present has investments in
many American businesses, such
as the Alabama Power Company
and American Telephone and
Telegraph, Bluestone said. UMSEU
is exploring the possibility of al-
ternative investments, including
investment in student services. If
the University were to invest in
housing, it could bring lower costs
to the students.
To Reduce Prices
UMSEU will negotiate with the
campus book stores to reduce
prices or give students a discount.
At the same time, Bluestone said
they will ask the University to
sponsor a bookstore in a Univer-
sity building. They are also work-
ing with the state Legislature in
the hope of receiving appropria-
tions for this project.
A UMSEU committee, under
direction of Gail Smiley, '67, is
working on a job survey booklet
this summer. It will include the
types of jobs available, their pay
scale, the number of hours a stu-
dent must work and the job pre-
requisites. It will contain advice
for the student on where to go

which he is currently engaged-
what would be necessary for a
reapprochment between China and
the United States. This project is
sponsored by t h e American
Friends Service Center. One con-
clusion of the committee was that
opinion toward China in the U.S.
is not realistic.
America's at t i t u d e toward
China is negative; he said. This
is because each country finds it
difficult to form realistic images
of the other-a factor partly due
to the fact that they belong to
different streams of history and
also because of political distortion
of the information system.
Boulding explained that U.S. re-
assurance that Americans realize
the Chinese Communist govern-
ment is stable is needed to bring
about a rapproachment. He added
that the U.S. will have to come to
terms over the problem of Taiwan.
To the Chinese the problem is
much like the British support of
the South in the War Between the
States, he said.
Other research being done on
testing reality, involves what hap-
pens in a closed unit of society
when there is no means of com-
paring what an individual is told
Merril Jackson, research social
psychologist at the conflict center,
is working on a theory that would
also explain what happens when
channels of communication are
available to this close group.
Jackson's research is concerned
with studying aspects of society
which Jackson says are not as in-
tensively studied as other aspects.
These include northern, urban
Negro ghettos, state mental hos-
pitals and state prisons.
Jackson is interested in social
units which are closed to outside
influence. These units are com-
posed so that there is no way to
check a conception of reality with
Jackson illustrated this with an
example of a mental hospital. In
the ideal situation patients are
encouraged not to doubt, he said.
They are taught to accept certain
ideas of how things are. Eventual-
ly they come to believe them.
Admittedly the system has to
be closed for a long period of
time, he said. However, the way
this situation operates, it is al-
most as if people must have a
"story" merely describing what
they take for granted in order to
To support his theory, Jackson
described an experiment run on
sensory deprivation. Subjects in
this experiment were placed in a
room which had no windows and
only necessary furniture. Meals
were given at irregular times. Stu-
dents used in this experiment had
expectations of staying in these
conditions for the entire summer
as a form of a summer job. The
longestrany student stayed in the
situation was two days, Jackson
One of the first things that
happened was the subjects lost
all sense of time. Next, subjects
began to have hallucinations. The
hallucination is significant, Jack-
son explained, because it was this
which gave the subject a meaning
or "story" of what he was doing
in there. Subjects made up these
stories to make their life mean-
Sensory deprivation tests show,
Jackson said, that if things were
all the same, then a person has a
tendency to make them randomly
different. The same effect is in-
duced if you keep things com-
pletely irregular; the individual
will give a regularity or meaning
to random happenings. If an in-
dividual continues to live in this
type of situation, he beings to lose
touch with reality.
In a group deprivation situa-
tion, Jackson continued, rumors
start. If a story is lacking, assum-
ing that people need to under-
stand their life, then people will.
eventually start to believe these
rumors even if it is contrary to
their own interests.
Each course, except English 123 and 220, requiring a specialj
examination, is assigned two examination code letters. If one is
preferred by the department, it is in boldface type; students may
elect the other only if a conflict occurs and special permission is
secured from the department.
