(AP> _ Many industrial organizations were described yesterday by a university professor as "socially neurotic." Dr. Claude E.

Communication in an organization, Dr. Thompson said, needs to • be upward as well as downward. "IVhat (he Boss Thinks" "If the man-hours spent by sub, ordinntcs, both on and off the Job, in preoccupation about what the , boss thinks, were added up," he said, "The total hours would be staggering—not to mention the results it has produced in nervous : breakdowns and other forms of mental anguish." Jerry Voorhis. executive-secretary of the Consumers League, Chicago, told the 22nd annual convention that the cooperatives have themselves largely to blame for the fact income lax. criticism continues to plague them. "They just haven't bothered to tell their communities the simple facts about the taxes they pay," he said.

Close to half a million of these cars have been built and sold this year. Close to half a million people have checked their features and prices against the field—and decided they'd better buy Buick. • • , As to prices—they start down below some sixes. And whether you price the SPECIAL, the SUPER or the KOADMASTER, you'll find, .on a cents-per- pound basis, that few other cars can touch them for value. • And this is for sure! When it comes to performance-ride-the way they handle and hold the road —and thrifty use of fuel and oil-Buicks have never ' been finer. That's another way of saying that coil springs on all four wheels-Dynaflow*-torque-tube drive— and Buick's high-compression, high-economy Fireball power produce an out-of-^his-world combination.
