Toe foundation is made up of .nine, main departments. It carries out basic and applied research for small, medium and large companies including such firms as BA Oil, Du-pont of Canada, Imperial Oil, International Nickel, Lever Brothers, Procter and Gamble and Union Carbide group research for associations and, groups of companies, and abort-term investigations. . In the field of physical, organic and materials chemistry,' for example, a number of small companies nave assigned all their technical work to the foundation because this is mora efficient than maintaining a small Isolated laboratory with a staff of one or two. ' Assirn Project Large companies, with extensive research facilities of their own, frequently assign a research project to ORF, ' either because it is a new field In which they do not have the experience or the equipment, or because they wish to have an independent Judgment The foundatloa also offers a wide variety of management, engineering and technical-economic services.

" DeveloDinr Managers THE DIFFERENCE between managing a business 10 years ago and today is as great a change as leading a primitive tribe and heading a modern government. This is the comment of Walter Thompson, r associate dean of business administration at the University of Western Ontario, on the critical problem of finding and grooming future managers for Industry. He is quoted in en article " by Gordon Wesley in' Imperial Oil Review. John Betford, Massey-Ferguson's personnel and industrial relations vice-president set forth this view. "The rock bottom difference between one enterprise and another in the same competitive economy is management leadership. ' "AD the factors' of production manpower, produc-. tion facilities and equipment, raw material and the sources of capital as well as markets and their potential are. generally speaking, equally available to alL Where one enter-V prise succeeds, and others fail, the significant-ultimate " difference is the quality of the management." -Training Lags Behind ) Yet a recent Department of Labor survey showed that only 20 per cent of 7,300 companies across Canada have any formal training program for potential managers. Imperial Oil has been one of the leaders In this field; it has been. " operating management development programs for almost 30 years.' What has Imperial learned? It has found there are no hard and fast rules In management development. The company looks for the "entrepreneur" a person with a combination of creative and administrative abilities, says President W. O. Twaita. V . - The company strives for the optimum balance of disciplines. "We prefer a basic engineering education with mora attention to language and economics dun present curricula, provide," explains Mr. TwaiU. - Imperial employs a variety of development techniques. It attempts to rata management candidates; it emphasizes cross fertilization between jobs within departments and among deparments; K carries on in-con pany training and orientation courses. r ..-1 ; ,i .

A good housekeeper In those days had to sew and cook. She made her own bread and cakes, did up her preserves, made the children's clothes and her own. We bad a large family i so I had plenty ol practice." Ethel Anglln had worked out her own "second career" and talked on about H for a good half hour. It was only when her husband died suddenly after an early retirement that she fully realized she was no longer the centre of her family's life. It had taken time for her to change ber thinking. "Before. I had been Herbert's wife; the cait- drea's mother. But then I be gan to wonder who was the real me." - The young people saw no problem. They would have been quite ' happy if she bad spent ber time visiting each one in turn. She tried this and It dldat turn out too badly ' o a c e around. : .'.' They were a good family and they loved their' mother. Bat this was different to aeedlag her. Soma of the time they even treated her as If she were a slightly backward child. Of course, at other times "they , did ask her to bake some of ber luscious rolls for their company dinners; or to make over old coat Into a smaller edition for Junior. ; 'At borne all I had to do was to get my own meals and keep my place bi order. It waan't enough. So I turned to my old love baking. I'd make a batch of bread and take a fresh loaf, to my granddaughter who lives near me. Sometimes Td give one to my neighbor who has several youngsters. They all made such a fuss Over tbat home-made bread that Td get an puffed up over it. . 'Occasionally a friend would ask me to bake something (.pe dal, and would offer to pay for it. But I couldn't charge. This made It a bltuncomfortable for both of us." IN BUSINESS Urged on by ber. friends. Ethel decided to make up -a list of ber specialties and set prices for them. After that, she had no difficulty keeping busy. One Summer, when things had dropped off a bit, she" made some pickles. But It was Christ mas cakes that really put her in .business. "Tbat first year I made 130 pounds of Christmas cake. made it from a recipe 1 bad worked out for myself over the years. Of course, I use only top quality Ingredients. I buy wholesale; then I sen at the same prices as the bast bake-sbops. Now I have It down to a science. I know how large a batch I can bake at a time. I know small cakes sell b e 1 1 e r than large ones and so on. "Do I make moneyf Well. I'm here! And I nave some orders right now tor next Christmas." Ethel's profit from her little business varies from month to month but. tt nets ber enough that, when fancy strikes ber, she can make tracks for such places as Bermuda. - - Something she didn't fores e a was the affect ber activity had on ber family.
