Since employee training in business and industry is relatively new, it was thought that more information should be made available concerning the individuals, practices, and programs in this area. Training as a formal process in business and industry is being increasingly accepted thus providing greater employment op-portunities in this field.
IN JUNE 1952 a survey by the membership of the M.S.T.D. as to the most pressing needs of local manage-ment people revealed a great need for courses in Speed Reading.
Departing from the trite and ordinary in summer speech making, C. Kenneth "Ken" Beach, Coordinator of Training Services, American Arabian Oil Com-pany, New York City, talked at Marines Memorial in Los Angeles on August 18. To a large gathering of California Train-ing Directors' Association members he gave some pertinent facts and opinions on executive development and case meth-ods.
This issue of the Journal is an exemplification of another significant ASTD service to training directors and their associates. Since approximately 75 percent of the copy in this issue is devoted to the results of a current survey on the duties ancl responsibilities of training personnel in business and industry, readers are provided an interesting perspective of today's train-ing director.

The human animal seems infinitely capable of wishing things otherwise. In hindsight appears the wisdom we needed in foresight.
Some executives believe that an efficient secretary improves their own effectiveness. In certain cases, she may be the "hidden talent" of an executive. On the other hand, some visualize the secretarial activity as a proper function to an executive but not as part of his activity.
Wayne E. Grimm, Assistant Director of Industrial Education in charge of Supervisor Training for Chrysler Cor-poration, was elected Vice President of Region II in March 1952. He had previously served on the board of direc-tors of ASTD, and as President of the Michigan Chapter of the Society.
An outstanding contribution to the progress of training and ASTD was engineered by the host chapter of the Ninth Annual Conference in Boston last month. Massachusetts Chapter President Cy de Mille, General Chairman Bob Fox and the Boston team designed and operated a most worth-while and interesting program for well over six hundred members and guests of the society who registered for the 1953 meeting.
ASTD changed its name to ATD to meet the growing needs of a dynamic, global profession.
