rididly discussed his defeat by

"There are three things that I

The high degree of automation'
in the railroad industry was recog-
nized yesteday in the first of three
seminars at the second Michigan
Railroad Management Conference.
At least 50 faculty members from
Michigan colleges and officials
from Michigan railroads are at-
tending the conference in the Un-
ion, sponsored by the University's
Transportation Institute and the
Michigan Railroads Association.
The conference will end today.
"There is more automation in
the railroad industry than in most
other businesses," said Roob H.
Allie, executive secretary of MRA.
Streamline Paper Work
Speaking on "Automation of
Railroad Business Procedures," J.
W. Kizzia, Transportation Editor
of Railway Age, declared "Stream-
lining of paper work offers the
greatest potential for railroad in-
dustry automation."
He said railroads are examining
existing procedures and are emer-
ging with new ideas for manage-
ment on how to eliminate dupli-
cation in office procedures.
Kizzia mentioned the IBMJ 650
and 705 electronic computors as
the newest achievements in the
automations field. These machines
eliminate the excessive work which
goes into the computing of payroll
operations, income tax, and other
financial reports, he said.

"This is more important than
shaking hands and if it costs me
the nomination or election, there
is such a thing as wanting to be
president too much."
Mr. Finletter, in an after-dinner
speech tp the delegates, remarked
that he thought presidential pri-
maries were a poor way to pick a
candidate and particularly ill-
suited for Gov. Stevenson.


He expressed confidence that the
convention delegates would nomi-
nate Stevenson in August since he
Ls the only candidate who can hold
the, party together while beating
Pres. Eisenhower.
Stevenson Unmatched
Mr. Finletter stated: "No candi-
date of either party can match
Gov. Stevenson's ability and un-
derstanding of foreign affairs. Nor
is there any problem facing this
country more serious and crucial
than this country's leadership in
the free world. His inauguration
is indispensable if we are -to suc-

Junior will be quite willing to
ride in a five-year-old car instead
of a gold-plated Cadillac like the
kid in the next block as long as
you make him feel secure in his
family niche, says Warren A. Ket-
cham, assistant professor of edu-
cation at the University.
"He'll adjust readily to the
straitened financial situation of
his parents, provided his is made
to feel that he is a real member
of the family," the educator says.
"Providing your child with op-
portunities for success is another
important thing parents can do to
insure' his mental health. This
doesn't necessarily mean success as
gauged by parents or teacners. or
even as compared with the per-
formance of other children. It
means success relative to the
child's ability," Prof. Ketcham
'Don't Brood, Parents'
He explains that the child is in
the process of improving and
learning, and to him an adult's ap-
proval represents success.
"To be mentally healthy he needs
to be able to say to himself, 'My
parents like what I am doing.' So,
parents, don't brood x about not
being able to provide. your child
with ballet lessons. The important;

thing is to make sure he meets up'
with a few simple successes."
The educator also urges parents
to explore the feelings of the child
frequently. "Talk with him about
how he feels he is getting along.
at school. Mental health is really
dependent upon what a person
feels about how he is doing. The
important thing is that the child
should not too frequently feel that
he is never good enough to satisfy
his parents and teachers."
Don't Be Alarmed'
Prof. Ketcham's final word to
parents is; "Don't be alarmed if
your child doesn't seem to be too
well adjusted. It's true some child-
ren who are in frequent conflict
with parents or teachers do some-
times become maladjusted, or men-
tally unhealthy. But more often
than not, maladjustment is the re-
sult of long periods of frustration."
He continues, "A good deal of
lack of adjustment is temporary
and simply part of the growing-up
process. Self-reference is the best
guide for parents here.
"Take a good look at your own
childhood and youth. Chances are
you'll remember with sympathy
and relief how you survived your
own temporary periods of being out
of harmony at home or in school,"
Prof. Ketcham concludes.

road employees days to compute
can now be computed in three
minutes on these new electronic
machines," stated Philip C. Watt
of IBM.
Watt declared that IBM's new
705 machine would be put to rail-
road use this October in Atlanta.
He said that there are now 7,000
electronic machines in use today,
attributing the wide usage to the
interest of railroad management.
"Punch card and bookkeeping
machines are being used and de-
veloped every day to decrease
work," Watt said.

that the field of transportation Is
