Hal Boyle Could Charge Admission For Business Conference NEW YORK (AP)-One of the great rituals of American life is the business conference. The conferences are usually held behind closed doors to give them an air of secrecy. That is a great shame. They should be thrown open and tickets sold to the public. For the average business conference has better acting and far more drama than an off-Broadway production. In some offices they hold conferences weekly—some even have them daily. In others the boss merely calls them whenever he is lonely and feels like bawling out the staff. d If you have ever attended one of these office matinees, you probably remember some of these typical characters: Statistical Syd—He shows up with an armful of charts to prove his points. Halfway through his presentation, he discovers he has Whereas Wilbur—The company lawyer never makes a suggestion himself. He is there for only one purpose—to arise and announce why the suggestions anyone else in the firm makes are legally impossible, plus being against public policy. Doodling Dan—The boss' nephew sils and silently draws pictures of pretty girls on the pad before him. His plans are all made. As soon as he inherits the business, he intends to fire everybody and sell the firm to its biggest competitor. Sylvester the Spouter—The sales manager is a master of glowing, push-button prose. "While our figures are down a mite this month," he says cheerily, "all signs indi cate that next month will see a record." All signs point to a record all right—a record loss. Omnipotent Oliver—"This con fab got us exactly nowhere," says the boss, winding it all up. "The next time I call you boys in, you'd better show up with some rea ideas—or there'll be some new faces at this conference fable." The session is over. The execu tives march out, firm confidence showing in every face. Industry marches on! Kekkonen Pays Honor Debt To "Savior Of Finland" NEW YORK (AP)—When Finn- hung the charts upside down.

And Finland holds no virtue higher than payment of its debts j —unless, perhaps, it is honor. Hoover's involvement with the small Scandinavian country began in November, 1918, less than two weeks after the Armistice that ended World War I. The former president, now 87, tells of it in Volume HI of his book, "An American Epic." Hoover, then head of the American Relief Administration, was visited by a Finnish delegation seeking food to save their ravaged country from starvation. The American promised 10,000 with its giant neighbor in 1939-40. And they have felt and expressed a great gratitude toward this country in general and toward Herbert Hoover in particular.

He broke his arms two weeks ago in a fall from atop a clothes line pole. Margery Leaves Nigeria LAGOS, Nigeria (AP)—Margery Michelmore headed today for the U.S. Peace Corps' field headquarters in Puerto Rico and possible reassignment. The Nigerian government reaffirmed its support of the American youth group despite the row set off by the girl's postcard that went astray. U.S. embassy officials escorted Miss Michelmore aboard a plane for London Wednesday night shortly after she had paid a courtesy call on Gov. General Namdi Azikiwe. A Nigerian statement said she expressed "her regret for her thoughtless act of week." regret last Miss Michelmore, 23, offered to resign from the Peace Corps last Sunday after a postcard was found on which she had described living conditions in Nigeria as primitive.. Students at the university at Ibadan where she had been training circulated copies of her remarks and demanded that the 37 Peace Corps members in Nigeria be expelled. A U.S. spokesman said Miss Michelmore would fly direct from London to Puerto Rico to discuss THE OTTAWA HERALD Thursday, October 19, 1961 her future with leaders at the corps' field training center.

Phil has used this same line so many times he is beginning to believe it himself. the Finns left. But they returned a few moments later. "How much will it cost?" they asked. "Don't worry about it," said Hoover. "Arrangements will be worked out." "We will pay," said the Finns resolutely. "Our people will work and pay." The Finns kept that promise. They have been working and paying regularly ever since—despite depression and war, despite the heavy demands made on the country by the Soviet Union since Finland's heroic "winter war" Harvard Too Strict CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) Harvard's retiring dean of admissions says President Kennedy and both Roosevelts probably could not have entered Harvard under a more selective admission policy. The same thing applies to Henry Cabot Lodge, Republican candidate for vice president a year ago, former Dean Wilbur J. Bender says in his final report. Bender, as dean of admissions of Harvard College, the university's undergraduate school, directed admission policy for eight years. His final report defended his policy against critics and said he was not at all sure he would support a so-called top one per cent policy — restricting admission to WINNERS MONTGOMERY WARD "What x s The Price" Contest Held in conjunction with the SELF-SERVICE STORE and WARD WEEK OPENING.
