tional activities of the University,"
President Hatcher said.
He pointed out that it was the
responsibility of each individual
school and college to develop their
own concepts and patterns of
growth but it was the University's
responsibility to make such growth
acceptable to the community and
the University as a whole.
Must Be Mover
Changing pace President Hatch-
er said he had never felt satisfied
with the passive role most uni-
versities have assumed toward so-
cial, economic and political prob-
lems facing America. Because he
holds this view the president said
he was pleased with the creation
of the Public Discussion Commit-
tee established by the Regents last
President Hatcher spoke at
length of the University's role in
the area of race relations. He said
there were three programs relat-
ing to the problem currently un-
derway at the University.
The first programsis an exam-
ination of the high drop-out rate
in predominantly Negro high
schools with the ultimate inten-
tion of solving the dilemma.
The second is a program of
cooperation with Tuskegee Insti-
tute in cultural and academic
The third is the University-
sponsored meeting in October of
the major universities in the Mid-
west to deal with the ways in
which the numbers of Negroes em-
ployed in higher institutions can
be increased and the development
of programs to increase the flow
of Negroes i n t o professional
Dies After Illness
Prof. Philip Northrop, formerly
of the dental school, died Satur-
day in Grand Rapids after a
month-long illness. Prof. Northrop
left the faculty in July, having
taught at the University since

Management executives who sup-
port and encourage their employes
will have better production rates,
Prof. Rensis Likert, director of the
Institute for Social Research said
yesterday at the Conference on
Productivity and Economic Growth
in Racine, Wis.
Deans of business administra-
tion schools and other representa-
tives from the Big Ten and the

that they reinforce the traditional
economic motives instead of con-
flicting with them.
New Theory
Second, in order to apply the
new theory, procedures must be
set up for communications, super-
vision and decision-making with-
in the structure and traditions of
the company. Managers should
seek "supportive" relationships
which build an employe's sense of
personal worth and importance.
Third, small work groups, close-
ly supervised, produce great ef-
ficiency when workers feel .loyalty
to their own group. "The work
group rather than the individual
is the building block out of which
the organization is created .
Overlapping group linkage binds
the organization into a more co-
hesive and effective institution."
Historical Differences
Fourth, the principle of sup-
portive relationships takes into
account historical and traditional
differences and calls for proce-
dures appropriate to the culture
of. the enterprise.
Fifth, each member of the or-
ganization should have adequate
levels of interactional skills to
perform the functions of the posi-
tion he occupies.
Sixth, the variables of manage-
ment. organization, its goals and
practices, should be measured at
regular intervals and the results
made available to superiors, peers
and subordinates.
Reaff irm ule
At Syra cuse
Syracuse University reaffirmed+
its position concerning student
pickets Friday, explaining that
academic freedom does not extend
beyond the limits of the law.
The statement came following
an American Civil Liberties Union
criticism of the university's policy
of automatic disciplinary proba-
tion for :students arrested in fu-
ture racial demonstrations.
There have beenno arrests since
the policy was instituted last Sun-
day. The 52 students arrested pre-
viously are not subject to the rule.

... employer-manager

University of Chicago heard Likert
attack the traditional theory that
buying a man's time gives the em-
ployer complete control over the
employe's behavior.
Standard Procedures
While most organizations. still
base their standard operating pro-
cedures on this assumption, re-
search reveals that the highest
producing managers in American
industry do not as a group believe
in its validity, nor do they base
their managerial techniques upon
it, he said.
Expanding on principles con-
tained in his latest book, "New
Patterns of -Management,"' Likert
cited six concepts which appear
to be central to the new theory
of management.
-First, to 'achieve cooperative mo-
tivation among members of an
organization, it is necessary to
harness non-economic motives so
