Start Study
OnMentally
Retarded
The University is starting a
study to assist Michigan's nearly
38,000 mentally retarded children.
This month Prof. Warren A.
Ketcham of the education de-
partment and coordinator of Psy-
chological Services will undertake
a year's study of growth and de-
velopment of mentally retarded
children for the purpose of mak-
ing them useful members of so-
ciety.
Punds amounting to $13,000
needed for conducting the study
will be made available by the Un-
iversity's budget for Utilization of
Human Resources.
It is believed that at least 35,000
of the state's mentally retarded
children may become useful cit-
izens, able to live independent lives
socially and aconomically, if pro-
vided with the right kind of edu-
cational experiences.
Presently Michigan operates
four training schools which pro-
vide institutional care for the re-
tarded. Thirty-nine districts in
Michigan maintain special grades
for mentally retarded children.
All facilities, however, are over-
loaded and only about 20 per cent
of the 38,000 mentally retarded in
the state are receiving proper ed-
ucational experience according to
Prof. Ketcham.
An insufficient amount of know-
ledge is available regarding the
learning process of mentally re-
tarded children, he states.
Other staff members of the
School of Education who will as-
sist in making the study will be:
Prof. Irving H. Anderson, Prof.
Byron O. Hughes, Prof. William
C. Morse, and Prof. H. Glenn Lud-
low.
Mrs. Allen Biddle will serve as
research associate on the project.
SU' Launches
Management
Research
The University has launched a
$25,000 research study on manage-
ment's relations with engineers
and scientists.
Organized by the University
Bureau of Industrial Reations and
financed by the University and 15
Michigan firms, the study 'will in-
clude more than 400 interviews
with scientists, engineers, supervis-
ors, and executives.
The field work will cover 10 com-
panies with major research ac-
tivities in Michigan, Ohio, New
York, and Illinois. It is designed to
uncover management policies and
practices which encourage key per-
sonnel to do their best work and
enjoy a high level of job satisfac-
tion.
The Bureau expects to hold sev-
eral seminar sessions on findings
of the study, probably early in
1957, and will later publish re-
sults in book form.
Those cooperating in the re-
search include Bureau director
John W. Riegel, Prof. Lee Daniel-
son, and research associates John
Hbooven, William Read and Gor-
don Bechtel.
