Psychiatrists Not Able
To Enforce Treatment

Detailed Program Used
To Choose Secretaries



"Psychiatrists can prescribe
treatment, but they cannot force{
a patient to take the treatmentt
unless he is an immediate danger
to himself or the community,"
Jack C. Westman of the University
Medical Center declared recently.
"Even when a patient might be
a potential danger, the psychia-
trist can only inform responsible
relatives or community agencies of
the need for treatment. Only an
acute emergency can change this
pattern of patient-doctor relation-
A psychiatrist cannot enforce
treatment, he continued, any more
than a physician can force a car-
diac patient to take digitalis.
"Much depends on the individual
receiving the advice," he noted.
"The doctor can only emphasize
the gravity of the situation and
the ways in which help can be
obtained. Further action in non-
emergency cases is the responsi-
bility of the patient or his family."
Westman noted several reasons
why families may resist psychia-
tric treatment: 1) they may fail
to recognize the importance of
seeking help; 2) they may hon-
estly disagree with the doctor's
SDIAL NO 5-6294I

diagnosis; 3) misconceptions about
cost also may be a factor; 4) and
relatives may hesitate to get aid
because they feel they are respon-
sible for the patient's illness.
"While prolonged !private psy-
chiatric treatment may prove ex-
pensive," the doctor concluded,
"clinics and state hospitals offer
high quality service at a cost
geared to the financial abilities of
the patient."
'U' Professor

JOHNNY MATHIS will sing to J-Hoppers Feb. 5 in Hill Audi-

from San Francisco, first claimed fame with a single record
success, "Wonderful Wonderful." Panhel is sponsoring him on,

Columbia recording star Johnny
Mathis will appear here on Feb. 5
at Hill Aud.
Mathis's performance, to be pre-
sented by Panhellenic, will en-
hance J-Hop weekend. Reserva-
tions for tickets may be made at
the Undergraduate Office of the
League from 2 to 5 p.m. Jan. 11
thr ugh 15.
Mathis is definitely one of the
important new vocal personalities
in recent years. He is a versatile
entertainer. His audience has no
age limits. It ranges from demon-
strative teen-agers to sophisti-
cated supper club patrons.
Smartest Night Clubs
Beside appearing in many of the
nation's smartest night clubs and
on leading television programs,
Mathis is recording top discs and
albums. The 24-year-old recording
star has to his credit ten best-
selling albums, all of which have
sold more than 100,000 copies.
Mathis received a Record In-
dustry Association of America
Gold Record Award for his first
album, "Johnny's Greatest Hits,"
which sold over half a million
copies. His single record sales have
exceeded the six million mark.
Mathis was still a San Francisco
collegian when he signed his Co-
lumbia Records contract in 1955.
At that time, though he had done
a little semi-professional' singing,
his chief claim to fame was ath-

In high school and college,
Mathis won several medals and
honors in track and basketball. His
intentions at one time were to
instruct physical education.
His singing success, however,
changed his mind. In 1957 Mathis
was named the "Number One Most
Promising Male Vocalist" by a
billboard poll. His hometown, San
Francisco, has honored him by
declaring Dec. 18 "Johnny Mathis

The thousands of secretarial and
clerical workers assisting in the
operation of University machinery
are chosen for employment by a
detailed testing program.
Close to 1,500 applicants a year,;
from high school graduates to
grandmothers, are tested by the
personnel department's testing and
training section for secretarial or
clerical positions.
During busy seasons, as many as
sixteen tense applicants a day take
a general clerical aptitude test, a
typewriting test, and if they
!choose to, a shorthand test,
Interviews Held
After the scoring of these tests,
each applicant is interviewed by
the employment interviewer, Jean
Underwood, who makes the initial
decision. The final decision is made
by the dean, director, department
head, or supervisor for whom the
applicant 'may work.
A representatiye group of ap-
plicants was composed of women
ranging in age from 18 to 53 years
years old. The latter was a college
graduate of 1923 and was mother
of three children and grandmother
of five. These women represented
a variety of cities in Michigan as
well as the states New York, New
Jersey, and Pennsylvania. One of
them, a Latvian, had been in the
United States just ten years.
Their first test, general clerical
aptitude, was administered by A.
E. Misko, the in-service training
supervisor, and his secretary, Mary
Dunn. Before it was given, one
of the prospective secretaries re-
marked, "I feel quite tense and
hardly able to write." Most of the
others agreed.
Tests Complex
The actual test was composed of
a clerical, a numerical, and a
verbal section. After it was over,
they all "untensed" and discussed
their reactions. Among them: "I'm
wondering - maybe I should go
back to fourth grade arithmetic."
"Some of it was sort of catchy,
but if you're wise enough, you'll
know the answer." "After the test,
I really wonder if I'm as smart
as I thought I was."
Following the aptitude test, the
applicants took a typing test. Two
of them took the shorthand test
composed of three parts-a letter
at 60 words per minute, a memo at
80, and a letter at 100.
To those who are accepted and
placed in a University position, a
unique in-service training program
is offered. This program, super-
vised by Misko, offers such skill-
building courses as secretarial ac-
counting and business math, filing,
ty :writing, business English, and
At present, Misko is writing a
training reference manual tenta-
tively scheduled to be published
this spring. His office is also work-

ing on a survey to determine the
validity of the pre-employment
tests by comparing their relation-
ship to the employe's effectiveness
in her position.
The third annual Secretarial
Workshop, designed to give Uni-
versity secretaries an opportunity
to exchange ideas on business let-
ters and effective writing and
speaking techniques, is scheduled
for May 10, 11, and 12. Former
workshops covered the subjects of
duplicating and records' manage-

Federal Aid
A dvantages
Federal aid for direct relief pro-
grams in the states would greatly
improve standards of assistance in
most of the United States, Prof.
Wilbur J. Cohen of the School of
Social Work declared recently.
As a member of the twelve-man
Advisory Council of Public Assist-
ance, Prof. Cohen has helped dur-
ing the past year in the prepara-
tion of twenty recommendations.
One of these suggests that fed-
eral grants-in-aid be made avail-
able to the states for direct relief
to needy persons without any resi-
dence requirements.
Financial Help. .
"If adopted by Congress," Prof.
Cohen said, "the proposal would
be of great financial help in lead-
ing industrial states such as Mich-
igan, Pennsylvania and Ohio
which usually are very hard hit
when heavy or sudden unemploy-
ment occurs." '
At the request of Congress the
Advisory Council's year-long study
of existing federal-state public
assistance arrangements were
made under the jurisdiction of the'
United States Department of
Health, Education and Welfare.
The Advisory Council's report
also recommended a uniform dis-
proportionment of payment to all
needy persons throughout the
Needy Children
Assistance for all needy children,
rather than only for children of
a missing or disabled parent, was
Prof. Cohen described this re-
port as "a constructive and timely
The Council also noted a "na-
tionwide shortage" of social work-
ers and suggested that universi-
ties step up their training pro-
grams in this area.
