Three Zionists
Will Train for
Co-op Farming
Jewish Students Planm
Ne 'Life in Paestine
Three Jewish student Zionists will
begin training at the close of this se-
iester to live as cooperative farmers
in Palestine.
Determined to aid in building a
new Jewish culture in the Holy Land,
David Segal, Evelyn Summers and
Marcus Rosenzweig will enter a com-
munal farm school at Cream Ridge,
New Jersey, next month.
Wait For Visas
They'll train for a year in practical
farming while they're waiting for
hard-to-get visas to Palestine. Segal,
of New York City, and Rosenzweig, of
Detroit, plan to follow up their agri-
cultural training with supplementary
study of the Hebrew Bible, leader-
ship, and labor Zionism.
The group is prepared to start
work in Palestine as plain dirt farm-
ers. The organization of the com-
munal settlements is completely soc-
ialistic, according to Segal, and the
duties of individual members of the
group are determined by a special
communal agency.
Segal said that he is planning on
leaving America because he feels
"the Jew has never been accepted."
"The most we could hope for is
'toleration'," he declared.
Building New Culture
In Palestine, however, he believes
the Jew is building a real home and
a new culture. "This culture," he
said, "is becoming a synthesis of
Western and Eastern civilization and
as such will be a great benefit to
mankind as a whole."
Miss Summers as the only woman
in the group declared she had no re-
grets about giving up American cul-
tural standards. She said she anti-
cipates "equality in the true sense"
in living in Palestine.
The three students are planning
their migration through Hechalutz,
the Jewish international Zionist or-

Motor Fleet Supervisois Are Tested

Professor Taggart Em pIszes
Broader Bnsiitess Trainin g

Residents of Martha Cook Building
and the Law Quad had grandstand
seats for the basic maneuvering tests
conducted yesterday as part of the
University's short course for motor
vehicle fleet supervisors.
Part of Tappan was blocked off
at 2 p.m. yesterday to enablethese
tests to be run. Course students drove
a tractor, semi-trailer and a bus in
the various tests, designed to examine
proficiency in basic driving maneu-
vers. Fundamentals such as driving
forward and backward in straight
lines and turning corners were em-
phasized, according to Carl G. Sea-
shore, Associate in charge of Motor
Fleet Safety Education at Pennsyl-

vania State Collvge and initator of
the course.
"There are six basic driving man-
euvers," Seashore said. "In actual
traffic," he pointed out, "all driving
is a combination of these maneu-
vers. If the driver cannot pass the
tests under these special conditions,
then obviously he cannot pass them
in traffic.."
The driving tests were part of a
five-day course in selecting, training
and supervising fleet personnel which
opened yesterday at the University.
Enrolled in the course are almost.
forty representatives of management,
major executives, fleet supervisors
and others interested in or responsible
for safe driving and fleet operations.

"To these men," Seashore said,
"this course is just good sound busi-
ness management. Traffic accidents
cost fleet supervisors a lot of mon-
ey. Corect methods of selecting,
training and supervising fleet per-
sonnel can prevent financial loss
and save human lives."
An experimental course of thisI
type was started in 1939 at PennI
State, Seashore said. When the traffic
accident rate reached alarming pro-
portions two years ago, he added, the
Automotive Safety Foundation asked
them to take the course through the
country. This year the course is being
offered at 29 different colleges and

The School of Business Adminis-
tration emphasizes a two-year col-
lege background followed by a broad
business program of two years lead-
ing to the degree of Bachelor of
Business Administration. Prof. H. F.
Taggart said yesterday in the third
of a series of talks on opportunities
in different fields.
Although the student specializes
in a field such as acounting, market-
ing, industrial relations, statistics,
finance, or management, in addition
to 30 hours of required work, there
is no high degree of specialization
on the undergraduate level, Prof.;

Taggart, continued. increased spec-
ialization is possible in graduate work
leading to a master's degree.
Students or(, aided by a special
placement bur(aU in obtaining jobs,
and may start in business in such,
positions are junior accountants, min-
or functionaries in banks, trainees in
industrial concerns or commercial de-
partments of public utilities. For
women, Prof. Taggart, said, the sec-
retarial field has proved a chief en-
tryway into business, and for this
reason a fair amount of secretarial
training may be included in the cur-
