"You have to do more thinking in
one year than your fathers did in
their whole lifetimes," declared Wil-
liam B. Stout, president of the Stout
Enigneering Laboratories, in discuss-
ing our age of rapid change before
a business administration school as-
sembly here yesterday.
He advised students that a univer-
Reports that a religious director
is soon to be appointed by the Uni-
versity was unfounded, according to
President Alexander G. Ruthven-
The purpose of appointing such a
director would be to have a man al-
ways available to whom the students
might go to talk over personal mat-
ters, especially those of a religious
nature, said President Ruthven.
Father Iden formerly served a
somewhat similar service at Lane

However, President Ruthven hopes
to have an official director appointed
in years to come, but conditions at
the present time prevent any imme-

Since then our lives have moved at
a faster and faster pace.
Since Edison, he claimed, ther,
have been no more "inventors." They
have been replaced by "designers "

He called "overproduction" an alibi
of the sales department.
That actually the business world
is 20 years behind the laboratory is
due, he said, to the fact that men
stop studying when they leave school.
Meanwhile, more knowledge has
