"Responsibilities' "Psychologists at the University ur California will try to learn why men succeed Instead ol why they fail," says a recent news Item. Dr. Donald W, MacKinnon, head of the university's new Institute of Personality Assessment and Research, explains the project in this way: "We hope to discover the factors tha* produce adjustment, hap- ' pines. 1 * and effective living rather than unhappincss atid maladjustment. " Here's wishing the new Institute success. And when -the CalifornJa psychologists have found the a&f- ssvers to their question let's hopti they let the rest of us in facts. hop« the We've been weighted down these last few years with information on failure. We've been told over and over all the various things we can do to wreck our children's personalities. ' ht>w we can ruin our mirri ...... what kind of behavior indicates that we are poorly adjusted ourselves. We've (iollcn tn a Rill Failure, failure, failure. It's been pounded In to us so hard that most of us think in terms of how to keep ni:r children from becoming delinquents—rather than how lo enjoy them antt give them the fundamentals of good character. We think more often In terms of how to avoid the pitfalls that lead to divorce than how to be happy in marriage. We arc much more inclined to brood over our inferiority complexes than to take pride in our accomplishments. It would be a welcome change to be taught why men succeed— rather than why they 'ail. And maybe it would do us soms ?ood. Learning why we fail cer- lainly hasn't helped us to be either happy or successful. It has Just tinned us into a nation -of neurotics. worrying over our own complexes and fretting over the ones we are afraid Sis and Junior are developing. At Here's lo success. Just tell 'iA how to achieve it, professors! was the subject of Ihe meditation. The g.-oup was dismissed with the repeating of the Lord's Prayer. .
