Students Now Appear More Tolerant of Business FUNNY BUSINESS By Roger fio/fen ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — In the late '60s students pounded at the structure of business and government. They heckled politicians speaking at college forums and booed corporate recruiters off the campus. At worst, their dissent turned to riots and sometimes tragedy. Today, students are yet to come full circle, but hostility and criticism, while still pointed, have cooled. This was the assessment of business leaders who recently spoke at a four-week seminar here for 51 college students from across the country. Views expressed by students at the "Operation Enterprise" seminar sponsored by American Managment Associations showed they: —Talk of growing distrust of society's institutions. —Temper idealism with the realities of business. —Are uncompromising in Timei Herald, Carroll, la. r Monday, April 19, 1976 O their view that there should be no corruption in business and government. —Fault business for waiting for government regulations to push it into action rather than initiating changes itself. —Feel business may be able to solve the nation's problems through continued technological advancement. —Have a growing anti-union sentiment because unions do not seem to be working in the best intejesl of their members. •JMmJM^JMt^^^^J^^^^^E^^g^3E^g-g-gJW-WWW^W^^^W^WWWW 3 pc.

"I can't say they have become conservatives, but they have certainly moved in that direction. For instance,,in the latest seminar only one of the 30 or so men had shoulder length hair. Five years ago the ratio would have been reversed." One thing that has continued as strongly as ever over the years, leaders agree, is the students' independent thinking. Though many of them are sent to Operation Enterprise under sponsorship of companies such as Dow Chemical, Nabisco, and ITT, they have no qualms about criticizing business. The purpose of the seminars is to give a clear, balanced picture of the real world of management, rather than sell students on the pleasant trappings usually associated with executive suite activities, according to AMA president James L. Hayes. • "Let's face it, there's a dirty side to being a manager/' said Hayes. "Textbooks tell you lay-offs are a function of the business cycle. But it's quite different when you have to look employes in the eye and tell them you're shutting down operations for a while." To get a three-dimensional picture of managerial responsibilities, students hear representatives from labor and government as well as business. There are usually 20 to 30 speakers for each seminar, and class schedules are longer than the average college day. .

For example, when students were asked on the last day of the seminar what they considered to be the main problem facing business today, the responses fell into three general categories: Government regulation is hurting business. While not all regulations are bad, they have .definitely gone too far. The loss of public confidence, due to corruption by relatively few, is plaguing business. The unknown factor of future change is the greatest challenge, but it will be met.
