Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 'HE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, June 5, 1973 Office grapevine rumors hold true PHILADELPHIA (AP) If you're wondering about the truth of the rumor that was buzzing around the office last week, there's a 75-per-cent chance the rumor is true. Dr. Keith Davis, a professor of management at Arizona State University who has made an extensive study of office grapevines, asserted the high truth content of ru- mor in the office grapevine in a report released to the Phila- delphia Inquirer. "In normal work situations over three-fourths of grapevine information is ac- Dr. Davis said. "People tend to think the grapevine is less accurate than it really is because its errors arc more dramatic and consequently more imoressed on the memory than its day- by-day routine accuracy.' Dr. Davis notes that the Seek funds for labor leader head GRAND FALLS. Nfld. (CP) The Newfoundland Feder- ation of Labor is asking mem- ber unions to contribute to a special fund to compensate a la- bor leader fined for con- tempt of court. Don Head, president of Local 5457 of the United Steelworkers of America, was fined May 26. The case involved an in- junction limiting the number of striking union men on a picket line set up around the American Smelting and Refining Co. Property at Buchans. The court ruled that the injunction granted in April had been dis- obeyed. Federation officials said to- day more than 100 union locals in Newfoundland are being asked to contribute to a special fund to compensate Mr. Head, who has already paid the fine. President Arthur Kelly of Grand Falls said it will take about a month to assess results of the appeal because individual unions will have to vote on the matter at their monthly meet- ings. grapevine is amazingly fast as well as accurate. RELY ON GRAPEVINE For instance, employees at one firm surveyed said they expected news of important office changes to come first through the grapevine. The supervisor placed second and the official memorandum ran a poor third. In another survey, 46 per cent of the personnel knew by 2 p.m. that the wife of a su- pervisor had a baby at 11 oclock the night before. Tight security has proven no obstacle to the office grapevine. Dr. Davis said a company had secretly planned to move to a suburb 20 miles away. One day, the wife of a vice-president asked him why she wasn't told about the move. Her husband pretended ignorance, shocked that the informatiojn had leaked. The wife chfded the executive for Ms ignorance and explained that the infor- mation was reliable because her maid told her. The grapevine thrives in times of excitement and in- security, said Dr. Davis. Ex- amples are impending layoffs and installation of a computer in the office. Dr. Davis notes that smart managers monitor the grape- vine and feed it information they want distributed. to make a ALBERTA PURE VODKA Graham audience record SEOUL (AP) Evangelist Billy Graham ended a five-day crusade in South Korea by preaching to what he said was the largest audience of his 33- year ministry. Korean organizers of the cru sade said a million were on hand Sunday to hear Graham's final sermon, and total attend ance for the crusade was three million. Korean police esti mated the audience at still a record. The crowd caused North Korea to charge the Seoul gov- ernment with "forcibly mobiliz- ing large crowds to stage a su- perstitious play in concert with American missionaries." President Chung Hee Park, a Christian, supported the cru- sade. Mission ended MOSCOW (AP) The Soviel Union's Lunokhod 2, a robol moon buggy that has prowled about the Le Monier crater since January, has completed its mission, Tass said today. The announcement by the news agency, with no previous indication the robot's systems were wearing out, prompted speculation the craft had suf- fered a mishap. The Lunokhod vehicle is de- signed to pick its way across the rugged lunar surface using television cameras as eyes. It is steered by a ground crew con- sisting of a commander, naviga- tor, driver, operator and engi- neer. UNRESERVED EQUIPMENT AND TRUCK AUCTION SALE JULY 16, 1973-9 A.M.
