I wish therefore lo ex- plicit and public the ideas I have personally had abnut the nature of management arts as a professional edlK'ation. What may eventually come about as official university or college programs is another matter. At this point I express only my own ideas The scale of human organi- v.ation is constantly increasing. The population of cities, of na- tions and of the world is enough to show tills increase in scale. When new organizational torms such as common market s. United Nations, international corporations, international wel- fare services, an international lied Cross etc., are added to population increases there is no denying the increase in com- plexity of scale. Concurrently, the techniques available to management aro increasingly sophisticated, and effective if properly used. The variety and quantity of today's statistics are enough to show this. The computer is the ex- pression of the enhanced use of mathematics in today's deci- sion-making. Similarly, the increasing use ol science and technology to 'solve' human problems, rather than people becoming obliged to solve human problems through personal behavior, is posing threats to Iwth man and his world never experienced be- fore in human history. This increase in organi7a- tional scale and this increase in the efficacy of modern arti- facts present both opportunities and disasters. Management is the point at which most critical decisions that lead variously to opportunities and disasters are, made. It is thus imperative that managers of the future are familiar with these immensely broad but damnably threaten- ing issues. Beware of n'olces in sheep's clothing Finally my letter. liats Off to Men of Valor, has achieved one goal for v. Inch most of my ters to the Kditor are written. Democracy can only flourish when we make use of our right of free speech, our right of free expression of thought, our right ol assembly, of religion and also our right to express opin- ions that, differ from those of cur friends and those of the people in high office such as government leaders and offi- cials without ridicule! Do tlif! peoples of the Sonet Tnion, China, dictatorship gov- ernments of South America, Cuba. The Congo or Pakistan enjoy these rights? If the an- swer is which undoubted- ly it must be since it can be proven that freedom has been obliterated in these countries, tlyjn "Who are who de- fend the leaders of these cmm- Irie-s when their leaders visit Some questions raised f am writing in regard to Mr. K.

It is no longer socially ade- quate lhat professional man- agers be competent engineers, technocrats, accountants or economists. The technical de- tails of any operation arc best taught or.-l he-job, or by techni- cal, apprentice-typo courses. The issues of modern manage- ment have transcended this level of things long ago. Management arts, as T sec il, is therefore concerned with ma- jor social issues implicit in management's new and mod- ern role. There must he no confusion about this. A broad liberal arts educa- tion, that moves the student around in Hie world of critical human and cultural issues, is the best preparation for that role thai this culture lias yet to offer. If anyone can suggest a better one. then let us hear of it, and soon! Management ails is a con- cept much broader in scope, and much more penetrating in ils analytical requirements, than mere business manage- ment or public administration. H provides for the study of management in its; modern role as outlined above. H must prepare a person to cope with managing in general, leaving that person to .spe- cial ixe in business, in public affairs, in local and community government or in welfare and recreational activities if he so chooses. He may also spccial- in management as an art in its own right. It must be pertinent to all of modern man's uiganizational forms that use large-scale tech- niques and modern artifacts for their performance. DAVID G. Lethbridge. lion of Ihe While House and lira lest of (lie world. Unless Mrs. Gandhi can inspire such uralcr- standing and action, a now Iragic wave of warfare on the [r.dian subcontinent seems in- cvilablc. West Pakistani refugees flee- ing the grim oppressions of the Pakistan army have put. tern- Mo s'rains financial, political social, on India. The lianpla nosh conflict has put India' in a position where war certain unless the U.S. and oilier countries pressure Pakistan's President Y ally a Khan to agree to a settlement. So far Mr. Nixon has not seen lit to pressure Pakistan, and Iherc is doubt lhat Mrs. Gandhi will he able to prod Nixon into this kind of action. In the fiscal year ending last March, India spent million caring for what now are 9.5 million West Pakistani refu- gees. The cost in Ihc current year will be more than billion. This is more than all the foreign aid going to India loi refugees, economic devel- opment and other causes. One result is that India already has curtailed programs designed to uplift her vas' backward areas. No less ominous is the rise in ccmmir.al tensions. More than i: million of the 9.5 million Ben- galis who have fled Moslem Pakistan arc Hindus. Indian extremists are now insisting that India force 8 million of her (id million Moslcn residents into Pakistan and thus create an economic crisis which some economists say would swamp Pakistan ar.d create chaos. In- dian leaders swear they would never resort to this kind of tactic. Ho the refugees continue to flood into India, many of them eating better than the ordinary CslraUa rc-oidciu. In fact, tho government is also hcing at- tacked because the refugees will work for one rupee (13 cents) a day, undermining the normal laborer's wage of 3 rupees. Officials here assume mat Mrs. Gandhi is too proud lo ask President Kixon for more eco- nomic help; she will hope that the need is already obvious, fit t she surely will try to con- vince Mr. Vixon that world peace requires that IK pressure tbc Pakistanis to resolve the Ijangla Dcsh affair promptly. However, the U.S.'s chronic troubles with India seem to grow (iccpor than such matters U.S. military aid to Pakis- tan. American 'leaders, wheth- er Democratic cr Republican, .seem to become severely in'i- lalcd by what they consider a "more nviral than tliou" In- dian posture. Indians point out t! it for years they were the targets of American anger because they advocated good relations with Communist China and the s'ovict Union a stance the U.S. now has adopted. They say they were ridiculed by Americans year after year for pressing lo get Peking into the UN a position the U.S. now takes. They say they bugged Americans by arguing that U.S. warfare ii Vietnam was a mistake a point on which r.icst Americans now agree. Indians profess an inability to understand why they arouse ire among Americans just hy bcir.g right. "Being r'ghl, is bad enough, but being superciliously right is irritating as explains one American official. It is on such attitudes that great matters of state, of war and peace, often turn. We all ought to hope that these kinds cf emotional hangups and petty sensitivities will not get in the way when Mrs. Gandhi and Mr. Nixon attempt, to put the two countries on a friendship course that they should have been on al! aiong.
