rector of the University Extension
Division, the general session of the
Michigan-Ohio Foremen's Confer-
ence got under way at 9:30 a.m. yes-
terday in Hill Auditorium.
Capt. Don S. Leonard, of the Mich-
igan State Police, addressed the dele-
gates in place of Albert W. Hawkes,
the originally scheduled speaker, who
was ill. Capt. Leonard was one of
500 men who visited England to
study measures 'for civilian defense.
His talk was concerned largely with
advising the foremen as to what they
could do for civilian defense, much
of his information having been
gained from observation in England.
England's Defense
England, faced abruptly with the
fact of war, had to prepare for de-
fense without the benefit of previous
planning. However, in the end she
came through very well and has
furnished us with many suggestions
for our own defense. According to
Capt. Leonard, "there hasn't been a
single case of mass hysteria in Eng-
land yet."
He advised the foremen to lay up
supplies and to build up the morale

of the "boys out there," but also to
keep up morale at home.
In a section, on "Management's
Responsibility to the Foremen," more
than 200 foremen and supervisors
heard M. M. Olander, district repre-
sentative, Department of Training
Within Industry, WPB, Detroit, ex-
plain the respective responsibilities
of foremen and higher managers to
each other.
Friendliness Important
The three prime considerations of
foremen in dealing with people, said
Olander, are fairness in handling any
situations, giving workers an under-
standing of the background and
meaning of the job they are to per-
form and, above all, friendliness.
Stressing the importance of per-
sonal interest along with a knowledge
of human relationships, Prof. Carl
G. Brandt, Chairman of the Engi-
neering English Department, de-
scribed to 350 foremen in another
section the fundamental principles
of "Self-Improvement."
Professor Brandt pointed out that
the stimulus for self-improvement
comes from the individual involved
and outlined seven motives which
spur men to action. These motives
are self-preservation, property inter-
ests, power, reputation, affection,
sentiment and personal tastes.
Asserting that "efficient producers
will inherit the earth," John Haien
of the Chrysler Corporation empha-
sized the necessity of developing fu-
ture leaders in industry to a crowd
of more than 2,000 which attended
the general afternoon session of the
In order to insure the continuation
of such an industrial program, he
claimed that it is necessary for the
foremen who work at the heart of
production in the factory to supple-
ment technical college training by
creating in young people the desire
to go into technical work.
Rights Of Foremen
Emphasizing freedom of speech in
labor relations and the rights of the
foremen in union negotiations, John
L. Lovett, general manager of the
Michigan Manufacturers' Associa-
tion, Detroit, spoke in a following
In his talk on "The Foreman's
Place In Collective Bargaining," Mr.
Lovett stated that a foreman must
learn by heart the provisions of the
Wagner Act, and maintain his rights
to tell a worker what he thinks about
unions. Illustrating his point, he
reviewed the Ford Motor Company
case, when Henry Ford's rights to
publish a pamphlet giving his labor
views were upheld by the court.
Manager of the industrial relations
department in the Packard Motor
Car Company, C. E. Wiese spoke on
"How to Handle Group Grievances.",
Wiese emphasized the importance ofI
freeing the foreman from having to
deal with the union representatives
in the settlement of petty plant prob-
lems. In most cases the foreman is
not able to grant any final decisions
anyway, he said.
