In October 1978, the airlines were deregulated and, as a result, ticket prices decreased Borman said the airlines now enjoy large THOMAS The former commander of the Apollo 8 space mission opened the winter Convocation series dealing with misconceptions of corporate America Colonel Frank Borman also spoke about his experiences with the first manned orbital space mission in December 1968 Borman served as chief executive for Eastern Airlines for five of the 17 years he was employed with Eastern. He currently holds positions on various board organizations and is familiar with the internal operations of corporate America. "Corporate America has been misunderstood and often maligned," Borman stated. He said the public has the notion that big business orients and directs the lives of individual citizens. Borman suggested a closer look into the internal procedures of corporate America would clarify false concepts about big business. Borman used the airline industry to show what affects decision making in large corporations. In the early 1970s, ticket prices rose sharply and the public directed its complaints at the airline industry. Borman pointed out that four internal factors affected the price rates. Inflation, an unsupportable increase in labor rates, a technological plateau, and an increased price of energy due to the Arab oil boycott in 1974. Economists joined together and turned to the growth as the safest form of mass transportation He added that the industry serves and benefits its public the ultimate goal of a large corporation. "We are not puppets to boardroom giants," Borman said Board runners are responsive to the needs of the public. When executives seem lethargic toward the public, they are probably responding to internal problems. Borman stated there are undesirable people running corporations, but most executives possess the four basic qualities of leadership: integrity, intelligence, a specific plan of action, and the ability to communicate A successful corporate leader knows that rank does not confer privileges, but responsibility, he said. Borman said that after 17 years in big industry, he has obtained "a renewed faith in corporate America. The majority are concerned about society." Borman concluded his speech with observations about the Apollo 8 space mission. During this flight, the astronauts said the most significant attribute the American society possesses is individual freedom. "The societal base of freedom in this country is alive, well, and healthy." Contest set for student enterprisers ALPiriE LANES YOUR FUN CENTER COUPON BOWL THREE GET ONE FREE!
