By ALLISON ZOUSMER
To make it in the business world today,
a person has to be "tomorrow's version
of the Renaissance man or woman,"~
Roger Smith, chairman and chief exec-
utive of General Motors Corporation
told an audience at the business
school's Hale Auditorium yesterday.
Smith is at the University to receive
e School of Business Administration's
27th annual Business Leadership
Award. The ceremony was part of the
two-day celebration of the school's ex-
pansion.
"THE challenges faced by American
business are greater than ever before,"
Smith said. He attributed the changes
in the business climate to the high
technology boom which requires cor-
porations to plan today for "the factory
f the future."
"The factory of the future is really
the dream factory, . . . and there is no
easy way to get there," he said.
"More than ever before, businesses
require more than just BBA's and
MBA's - we need outstanding BBA's
and MBA's. The thing we need to sur-
vive is a new generation of
Brown sI
PROVIDENCE, R.I (UPI) - Voting
was heavy yesterday on the final day of
an Ivy League campus election
featuring a controversial referendum
asking Brown University to stock
suicide pills in the event of nuclear
ar.
"There have been lines all morning,"
much like Wednesday's first day of
balloting, said Beth Grossman,
president of the undergraduate Council
of Students. Totals of the non-binding
question will not be known until later
today.
THE REFERENDUM asking if
Brown's health services office should
stock cyanide pills for use upon request
during a nuclear war was proposed by
tudents Chris Ferguson and Jason
alzman, who said nuclear war would
destroy all morality.
"It's to show that nuclear war is
suicide," said Salzman.
The concensus on the campus is that
the proposal symbolizes the fear of
nuclear war and has increased
awareness of the issue. It has also
triggered disagreement over how ap-
propriate such a symbolic gesture can
be.
"WE MUST choose life. The real
eferendum is how to stop nuclear
war," siad David Waslow, coordinator
of the Brown Disarmament Group.
"We take very seriously the concern

'More than ever before businesses require
more than just BBA's and MBA's - we
need outstanding BBA's and MBA's. The
thing we need to survive is a new
generation of management.'

NEW YORK (UPI) - Gen. William
Westmoreland, leader of U.S. troops at
the height of the Vietnam War, was
"rattlesnaked" by a CBS documentary
charging he lied about enemy troop
strength, his attorney said yesterday.
"I'll show you how it (the tape of the
documentary) was cut, spliced and put
together to make a spurious reality that
never occurred," the retired general's
attorney, Dan Burt, said in an opening
statement at the $120 million libel trial
in federal court.
"YOU'LL SEE an ambushed, angry,
frustrated 68-year-old man forced back
on 14 years of memory. Gen. West-
moreland will tell you in his own words
how he was rattlesnaked," Burt said.
The defendants are CBS, correspon-
dent Mike Wallace, producer George
Crile, and CIA analyst Samuel Adams,
a CBS consultant.

management. They must be technically
educated people."
A 1949 graduate of the University's
business school, Smith praised the
school for its preparation of students for
the business environment.
"Michigan businesses believe in the
school and the product it produces -
graduates," he said.
Of the 8,800 MBA's employed by
General Motors, 11 percent are

graduates of the University, higher
than any other school, Smith said.
The award was part of the
ceremonies opening the new sections of
the business school, which include
computer facilities that Smith said are
a valauble part of a business student's
education.
"To be competititve today, a business
school needs a computer system like
the one you will dedicate here," he said.

that the students are expressing over
the threat of nuclear war," said Robert
Reichley, vice president for university
relations. "However, we do not accept
the alternative of stockpiling suicide
pills."
A few students said the referendum
had made the university look silly, but
one said he had a change of heart.
"I think it's going to make a
statement - a statement of concern,
not a statement that we want to commit
suicide," said sophomore Adam Kahn.

. Grossman predicted the final turnout
would be more than double the usual
participation for student government
elections, which traditionally draw
scant student interest.
First-day figures indicated 834 of
5,400 Brown students voted Wednesday,

compared to the normal turnout of 700
for the entire election process, she said.
Some students admitted they would
not even be voting in the election -
which traditionally draws little interest
- if it were not for the referendum.
