The faculty members who joined the staff of the Pennsylvania State University Institute for Research on Human Resources during the past year include Louis Levine, professor of economics, Herbert A. Auberbach, associate professor of education and sociology, Maw Lin Lee, associate professor of economics; Thomas G. Fox, assistant professor of economics and Tehwei Hu, assistant professor of economics. Grant N. Farr, Jacob J. Kaufman and John G. Shearer have recently completed a report for the U.S. Office of Education on "Research, Development and Demonstration in Adult Training and Retraining," co-authored by Robert W. Avery and Herbert A. Chesler of the University of Pittsburg. The report was concerned with an analysis of how a region, which consists of a large number of small communities with declining economic bases, organizes itself for community action. This study also set forth a research guide for the development and utilization of human resources. Jacob J. Kaufman, Morgan V. Lewis and David W. Stevens of Pennsylvania State University and Carl J. Schaefer and Elaine House of Rutgers-The State University, completed, in early 1967, a study of "The Role of the Secondary Schools in Preparing Youth for the World of Work."
