this intriguing question.

Business men in the field and
educators at Michigan are agreed
that Business Administration
graduates have difficulty express-
ing themselves either on paper or
before an audience.
The criticism was affirmed by
Business men attending the Ac-
counting Employers' Conference
here last week.
Richard S. Claire told the con-
ference that "We need more busi-
ness men and fewer technicians.
College students specializing in ac-
counting or other areas of busi-
ness practice need a good founda-
tion of general education."
"We need," he said, "men who
can write concisely and smooth-
The School of Business Admin-
istration is well aware of the sit-
uation, according to Prof. Leo
Schmidt, accounting instructor
who supervised the conference.
Prof. Schmidt told the Daily
that "the criticism is one which
we receive quite often-that stud-
ents are unable to express them-
selves in writing and on their

from grammar school on, the writ-
ing instruction is poor,"
Prof. Dorothy Gre6nwalt who
teaches the only writing courses
offered on the Business Adminis-
tration school curriculum, "Bus-
iness Letter Writing" and "Report
Writing," said in an interview
that "the real responsibility lies
with the individual."
"He has to recognize the im-
portance of writing. The Business
school requirements permit him to
elect courses outside, and many
do take speech and English
courses. Also, six hours of English
are required for entrance."

opinion and attitude surveys will
be taught in a special four-week
summer session at the University,
July 19 to August 13.
The session, to be conducted by
the Survey Research Center, will
include introductory and ad-
vanced courses in survey research
and sampling methods.

The attractive prospect of tak-

made available to students by the
formation of a Michigan Study

students from different Michigan
colleges for the expedition.
Directing the study group will
be Dr. Philip C. Newman, profes-
sor of economics at the University
of Detroit. Dr. Newman will ap-
