The amount the federal government spends for basic social science
research should be doubled to $1,700,000 next year, a University pro-
fessor of psychiatry told a United States Senate sub-committee yester-
<>Dr. Jamies G. Miller, chief of the Mental Health Research Unit of
the University Hospital, presented this as part of a report of a
temporary national group on support for behavioral science which'
was formed last fall at the suggestion of Vice-president Richard M.

West Leads.
"Though the West leads Russia in accomplishment in behavioral
science at present, we could be surpassed by a country which concen-
trated serious effort to that purpose," Dr. Miller told Sen. Everett
Dirkson (D-Ill.) and his subcommittee of the Committee on Appro-
A breakthrough in the control of human attitudes and beliefs
through drugs or subliminal stimulation "could be a weapon of great
power in Communist hands," Dr. Miller's report said.
"The issues which can be attacked by behavioral science are the
human ones whose solution can guide world affairs along the course
from cold war to ultimate peace," the statement continued.
"There has been almost no systematic research in behavioral
science concerning international relations and diplomacy, negotia-

tion, the prevention of war, or the operation of arms control systems,"
Dr. Miller explained.
Dr. Miller cited figures for "disproportionate" increases in research
spending for medical, physical and engineering sciences from the
federal government.
Proposed increases for biological and medical sciences would raise
the federal research appropriations from $7.8 million in 1958 to $19.5
million in 1959.
Mathematical, physical and engineering sciences would get grants
increasing from $7.8 million this year to $19.5 million in 1959.,
Suggests Doubling Grant
The social science research grant would increase only $250,000,
from $600,000 this year to $850,000 {in 1959, Miller said. "This is dis-
proportionate and does not properly support the critical sciences of
man," he declared.
His personal suggestion was to double the proposed grant to $1.7
or even a three-fold increase to $2.5 million. The group of 15 men
representing the social sciences and social science organizations which
Dr. Miller represented at the hearing, also recommended an increase
in fellowship support for social science students at universities.
This committee also recommended "more adequate representa-
tion" of the social sciences on the National Science Board and other
scientific advisory bodies of the government. Dr. Miller called for a
social science division within the National Science Foundation.

These recommendations are intended to give added emphasis to
the place of social science and emphasize its needs, the subcommittee
was told.
Increased funds for the National Science Foundation to support
the social science aspects of behavioral science, including basic re-
Search, training and facilities was included in Dr. Miller's report.
In ,addition to Dr. Miller, Dr. Ralph W. Gerard, professor of
neurophysiology of the Mental Health Research Unit of University
Hospital and C. Leslie Glenn, research associate of the unit, were also
members of the temporary group which made these recommendations.
Group Prepared Report
Prof. Donald G. Marquis, chairman of the psychology department
who is now on leave with the Social Science Research Council, was
also a member of the committee.
This group of fifteen prepared the report and discussed it with
Vice-president Nixon and James R. Killian's Science Advisory Com-
mittee and has now disbanded, Dr. Miller told the sub-committee.
"The strength, of a nation depends on its technical and material
assets, and on the scientific research which constantly expands these
physical resources," Dr. Miller told the senators.
"But national strength is equally dependent upon human factors:
the health, morale and motivation of the population, as well as the
formal and informal organization of the society," he added.

I COLORADO SPRINGS,'Colo. ()--Interservice rivalry and lack
of single command are imperilling the American continent, high of-
ficers in the North American Air Defense command said yesterday.
NORAD, established in this central Colorado city in September of
1957, is a unified headquarters composed of elements from the United
States Air Force, Army and Navy plus the Royal Canadian Air Force.
NORAD is a unit in itself and not attached to any one service.
The Arny, Navy and Air Force provide men, planes, ships and
weapons to the continentwide air defense force. The peacetime mission

Dodge Says,
Need Talent
'U' Business Students
Present New Award
The demands on executives has
been multiplied on every level of
businessand industry, Joseph M.
Dodge, chairman of the Detroit
Bank and Trust Company, said
"In every sizeable enterprise the
selection and development of ex-
ecutive talent must become pri-
ority projects," Dodge, the first
recipient of the business adminis-
tration school's 'Business Leader-
ship Award, said last night.
Lack of Executives
Dodge's reason for this is the
discovery that the "principal.
cause of failures in small. business
is a lack of good administration,
and nearly every category of weak-
ness can be tracedtto it."
Dodge stressed the importance
of good executives in his award
lecture at Rackham Amphitheater.
He suggested that executives
should be chosen with just as
much care as a member of a rec-
ognized profession. Seniority, in
advertance, or. other such mech-
anisms should not be used in selec-
tion,, as "management is such an
important factor in the success of
any- enterprise."

Dodge defines the title of his
lecture, "The Business of Manage-
ment" as "the organization and
coordination.of money, plant, ma-
terials and men into their maxi-
mum productive value and useful-
Dodge then explained the quali-
ties necessary for being an execu-
