Union Representative Urges
New Plan for Adult Education

"Storks don't bring depres-
sions," Samuel Jacobs, UAW-CIO
educational representative, told
members of the campus chapter
of the American Association of
University Professors, last night.
"Depressions are the result of the
actions of people-one of the facts
adult education should bring out,"
Jacobs commented, in summar-
izing the need for a vitalized pro-
gram to help rid the United States
of two "threats": totalitarianism
externally and monopolistic busi-
ness enterprises internally.
Jacobs spoke on "Labor Looks at
He called for an educational
program "based on pertinent lit-
erature and an understanding of
day-to-day developments." He
outlined four educational areas

that he felt needed development.
They are:
1. A study of business cycles,
which he called the most crucial
domestic issue today.
2. An economic study of nation-
al-brand merchandising. Jacobs
referred to it as the "citadel of
monoply"-which removes busi-
nesses from effective competition.
3. A course on propaganda tech-
niques to combat the development
of thought-control.
4. History courses to reveal the
historical role of the common
man in the rise of democracy and
continue the development of a
"broad base of Democracy."
"Labor unions are following the
four-point plan," Jacobs said,
"But they can't give it as much
support as it needs."
