ALL EYES arc on the dropped hemline of this suit by Norcll, featured in the designer's spring collection shown In New York. You May Be Listening But Do You HEAR? By AILEEN SNODDY NEW YORK— (NEA)-IIus- bands who listen to their wives with the ears turned off can get off the hook with a sweet word or two. But if Uie same man pulls this with the boss or a customer—anclloscs orders or gums up production —the sweet words may be to the man behind the counter at the unemployment office. This country is criticized for many ills. Now it seems we are suffering from poor listening habits. f ^. A5 ^ Pinpointing the possibly sad course of improper listening is an excerpt from a recent Smothers Brothers television script. The chain of command bit starts with a private on. a field telephone. He asks, "You'd like to negotiate? O.K. I'll tell 'em." He passes the information to the sarge, who passes it to the captain, who bucks it to the colonel. By this time the comment is, "Hey, colonel, there's an unlikely chance they'll negotiate." The colonel tells the general, "It's unlikely they'll negotiate." And the general says, "O.K., I'll tell him," turning to a White Cowboy Hat, saying, "Hey, sir, they ain't, gonna negotiate. Let's increase the bombing." White Cowboy Hat: "Whatever you say, general . . . I'll call up the reserves . . . but it gives me a heavy heart," Far-fetched? Not according to university studies that show that, although people spend 45 per cent of our communication time listening, 70 to 75 per cent of the information is lost. We hear about 25 per cent of what is said and lose much of that in a few days. Schools spend about 12 years teaching students to write a sentence, and from remedial courses for college freshmen they don't do too good a job. Learning specific reading skills is chopped off generally at the eighth grade but speech courses are hit- and-miss in most schools. What does this have to do with punching a time clock? A study of industry by a Minneapolis firm shows management and employes just don't communicate. The report by Pidgeon Sav age Lewis, Inc.. shows the Joss. The 100 per cent understanding for the company board chairman filters to 63 per cent for vice president, 56 per cent for general supervisor, 40 per cent plant manager, 30" per cent general foreman and 20 per cent worker. Tne result is a dissatisfied chap down the line who is out to get anything from the cpmpany that ignores him—he thinks. Many firms §re now investing in a new teaphmg technique to plQ§e the listening gap. Since its start in 1962, when apprfl^|r|)^tely 225,000 people Jeajrjejl how Jp, listen Television Schedule HDNPAY.

At the time he took the course, Brownstein was boning up to be a better marketing man for the insurance firm. The procedure is the same, whetner men ana women arptuid a conference table • are&1fal@smerifairlines reservations clerks or secretaries. The course supervisor distributes booklets that each person uses to mark answers in. After brief instructions not to peek at pages ahead, the tape starts. At first there are sentences such as, "The cutter can't be used because the blade's too long." The student writes a response to why the cutter can't be used (the blade's too long). " As the tape runs, the types of questions and information presented grow more complex. For example, answers to a discussion on a horse bet on Lightning Speed or Man of Victory requires five points picked from a rambling conversation of several hundred words. With each response, background noise of an office, street sounds or of a baby wailing shoots up and the listener must sort his information from the cacophony. It's everyday! Like so many new learning or self-improvement courses, the response book lets the participant know his improvement. Although set up best with 20 persons in a class (it costs $1,200 to license the Ef- tecuve usicmng series plus $2.50 a book), Brownstein says it works well with large groups. One company, for example, used it as an afternoon's entertainment on an incentive junket in Hawaii, A bank president insisted his wife take the course to keep her on her toes while entertaining business guests, Brownstein points put that most people don't listen or hear what is being sajd because they don't organize the main points, they Jet bias get in their way, they can't sift out trivia or they get carried away by emotion. For example, Hey words cloud a listener's thoughts and block out what may be important. Some of these are "mother-in-law, automation, income ta*. Bobby Kennedy or LBJ, Vietnam, clerk or nigger." Learning to listen helps hurdle these obstacles. A good listener, according to Brownstein, becomes a sifter an4 winnower. When asked what happens when a person tries to get something relevant from an irrelevant dinner speech, he confesses that "you chalk it up to bad listening experience."

Let's hear a few oles for the Baja Marimba Band, an off-shoot of the Herb A)pert Tijuana Brass cartel, which is bringing good music back to the popular field, Julius Wechter, the Baja's boss, is naturally happy about the group's success, but there is a sour note, The group was originally formed to record. They were all top studio musicians, men who had put years of apprenticeship in and thought they had those road days out of their system. Not now. Now the group is so hot that everybody wants to see them. So they've had to go back on the road. (A few wouldn't do it, so there have been some substitutions.) They put^on a good, pseudo-Spanish show. They "all pf^y£ long,,,droopv;. mustaches and smoke longlnqndrodpy cigars. "We lucked %Jt," Wechter says. "We chose, men /for musicianship, but some of them turned out to be great entertainers, too." One by-product of the group's success—on their A&M records and television and in person—is that marimba sales are way up. Wechter, who studied piano and then drums and then combined the two with his marimba, says, the company that makes his is having the biggest boom in its 100-year history. «t 0 6 Daktari's Marshall Thompson directed his first episode of the series, the last episode to be shot this year. He seemed to know what he was doing. He even innovated—using hand-held cameras at one point "to make for a fast-paced show with quick cuts, hopefully adding to the over-all excitement." The cast liked working for him. "He's the kind of person," Cheryl Miller said, "who thinks about every detail," <" 9 * Kids who arc ambitious for a show business career can envy the offspring of established stars. They figure they could get advice from, say. Dean Martin if they were his children. But Dino Martin says Dean's advice was not so helpful. "The only thing he told me," Dino says, "is that I should keep smiling, don't put my hat on the bed and never, never whistle in the dressing room." With that advice, you can go far. if you have talent. (Hewtpaptr Inletpritt Ann.) JHJ BROWS. WHO APPB4RS de«tiiwd $0 become «»s go,o4 9» aeJor as he was a fujl- fespk.
