Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 31, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Old autocrats of business fade from financicd scene TORONTO (CP) Business autocrats, the tough-talking, eteei-willed men who led the country into industrial adult- hood, are fast fading from the business scene and into history books. The men who once gave out Christmas turkeys and gold re- tirement watches are them- selves being phased out and some of their suc- cessors say. One man partly responsible for the generation's retirement says, however, that the passing of the autocrat is timely and his legacy honorable. Ross Davidson, a partner In consultants Woods, Gordon and Co. and new president of On- tario's Institute of Management Consultants, is an agent of Something It Happening At REKLSKHK Don't Miss The Savings During Revelstoke's POST GRAND OPENING SALE Many bargains Through-out the Store! 1602 3rd Ave. 5.

He says those replacing the masters of busi- ness administration, consumer researchers and industrial psy- time to trans- late their participatory manage- ment theories into a workable system for the future. At 49, Mr. Davidson has worked for both business con- ssrvatives and liberals. And, unlike the business autocrat he adapted to the decline in impor- tance in his own professional engineering training by acquir- ing new skills in accounting, business administration and personnel work. Many of the tycoons and en- trepreneurs who consult him are at least 10 years older. The business autocrat does not understand why consumers and government should have a strong voice in corporate plan- ning and believes that commu- nication consists of memos to his staff. Mr. Davidson says runaway demand for consumer goods and services and unforeseen re- sponsibilities of modern man- agement proved too much for the autocrat. "People are resistant to changes they don't fully under- stand." But, he says, the push toward so-called participatory manage- ment is not the complete an- swer either. "You can't run an organ- ization or a country by com- mittee. The autocrat may be goJig, but we still need deci- sion-makers to help us through the transition are learning how to create a human organization, rather than a collection of indi- viduals. We have some side ef- fects from the past to correct and we must be careful not to let remorse about failing to foresee pollution, waste and technological domination de- mobilize us." DIDN'T SEE DAMAGE The autocrat failed to sse the damage being done to the envi- ronment, but so did most every- one else, Mr. Davidson says. "Today's management prob- lem is the harnessing of tech- nology for the greater social allowing the tech- nology to grind us down. The autocrat is not suited to the complexity of the task. "A connection is badly needed between people and tech- technology in a subservient role. This calls for knowledge of the kinds of changes that are taking place and obiectivity and experience in handling the human relations problems associated with change Developments will continue to make demands on the manage- ment consulting profession. Mr. Davidson says one aim of the 250-member Ontario insdtute is to help organize institutes in other provinces, eventually leading to a national organ- ization. Quebec has organized one and Ontario is supporting organizational work in British Columbia and Alberta. Thursday, May 31, 1973 THE IETHMIDGE HIRALD 15 Newspaper praises Canada's action LONDON (CP) The Guard- ian says "it is a disgrace' that except in Canada the incident of the shooting of two Canadian girls at the Victoria Falls in Rhodesia "now is regarded as over and done with.' "The disgrace has been am- plified by the response of the Zambian government." It adds in reference to the original Zambian explanation that its troops fired on the tourists thinking they were Rhodesian terrorists trying to cross border. If so, why couldn't they be barred when they landed the paper asks. Population shift NEW YORK (AP) Blacks and Puerto Ricans will consti- tute a majority in New York City in 12 years if present trends continue, says an anal- ysis published by the New York Times.

TORONTO (CP) The Com- jmuiust Party of Canada says that the industrialization of Western Canada has stifled by Canadian monopoly interests and government. In a press release today, the party said that the Prairie provinces and British Columbia have been relegated "to the status of raw material pre- serves for Canadian monopoly, the United States trusts and multi-national corporations." It said that an increasing number of Canadians are "alarmed" at the situation and what the party calls the U.S. of- fensive to gain control over Canada's petroleum, natural gas, coal, mineral and water re- sources.
