Veterans' Placement
"Placement and Utilizationof Dis-

conferences currently being spon-
sored by the University's Bureau of
Industrial Relations, was attended
this week by representatives of 15
One of the first organizations of
businessmen for encouragement of
thought and planning concerning re-
habilitation of returning servicemen,
the conference discussed the anony-
mous case of a physically handicap-
ped veteran. The next discussion, to
be presented Tuesday, will be a clinic
on selective placement of veterans
with personality limitations.
Family Cooperation Needed
The panel last week was led by
George Billey of the Michigan State
Board for Vocational Education; E.
.A. Irvin, medical director of the Cad-
illac Motor Car Division; Clarence
Selby, medical consultant of General
Motors, and A. C. Tagg, director of
education for the Ex-Cell-O Corpor-
According to Prof. John Riegel of
the School of Business Administra-
tion, one of the suggestions made was
that these veterans "will not only
need jobs in order to adjust them-
selves, but also the cooperation of
their wives and families; and this
presents the new problem of how to
contact these relatives."
Other Topics Discussed
The first of these conferences was
held April 25, and membership was
limited to representatives of 15 com-
panies to facilitate the interchange
of experience.
Topics discussed at previous con-
ferences were: "Services Available to
Disabled Veterans from Federal and
State Agencies" and "Company Pro-

Taeusch Says
English Study
Brings Concord
"The study and teaching of Eng-
lish is one of the best ways of pro-
moting international concord", Dr.
Henry William Taeusch, professor of
English at Western Reserve Univer-
sity said yesterday in his talk on
"The Golden Chain of Concord".
Speaking under the auspices of
the English department, Taeusch de-
clared that modern complexities are
the "underlying factors that make
for the despair that is prevalent
among humanity" and explained that
Edmund Spencer's antidotes of hu-
manis and religion give his works,
which center on concord, or love, a
forceful direction.
Quoting from Spenser and other
poets, Taeusch brought his message
of "cheerfulness" which would "re-
veal the beauty of all men and pro-
mote concord in our cosmopolitan

Problems of just compensation of
the contractor in termination of war

contracts and reconversion were dis-
cussed recently by Prof. Robert L.
Dixon of the business administration
school in an address before the Na-
tional Association of Cost Account-
ants meeting in Ft. Wayne.
"Although more than 15 billion
dollars worth of contracts have al-
ready been cancelled and are contin-
ually being cancelled at the rate of
one and one-half million dollars each
month, this does not necessarily sig-
nify that the war is ending," Prof.
Dixon said in a recent interview.
He attributed these terminations
mainly to shifting rather than to
declining needs, some surpluses and
changes in specifications. "Fre-
quently a company will just get or-
ganized to start production on a large
order when the contract is cancelled.
This confronts business with many
problems," he said.
