Audit Firm Gives Top
Rating to Church on
Efficient Management
(N.C.W.C. Newt Service)
NEW YORK A management audit of the Catholic
Church, conducted on statistical methods employed in mea
suring the managerial efficiency of industrial corporations,
has been attempted by the American Institute of Manage
ment, a non-profit foundation with headquarters here.
In stating the purpose of the
study Jackson Martindoll, AIM
president, said that the audit was
undertaken to determine “just
what administrative lessons might
be learned from the Church’s 19
centuries of varied problems and
He emphasized that the audit
was one of managerial practices
and “not of dogma or ecclesiastic
al premise.” A point rating was ap
plied to ten categories: social
function: organization structure:
growth of facilities: membership
analysis: development program:
fiscal policies trustee analysis
operating efficiency administra
tive evaluation and effectiveness
of leadership.
According to the Institute's
Management Evaluation Table,
the Church received 8,800
points out of a possible 10,000,
or 1300 more than the 7500
points required to be certified
as "excellent" by AIM stand
ards. Mr. Martindell stated that
"no other non-profit concern
could be rated so high."
Information lor the report was
gathered over a period of eight
years hy hundreds of researchers
in various countries and more
than 30 languages. Mr. Martindell
said. Stating that the Church had
not been asked “to approve or dis

nor our many findings,” he admit
ted that “the information sought
hy us. from both official and un
official sources, has been freely
given.” Much of the research was
conducted in the Vatican Library.
The findings of the study rang
ed from an optimum excellence
rating of the Church's "social
function,” a high rating of its
"operating efficiency” and a de
tense of Catholic schools to a
criticism of the Catholic Press
and charges of “secretiveness" in
financial matters and “nepotism,”
"intrigue,” and “Isatin thinking"
in the Vatican.
In evaluating the "social func
tion" of the Chu-ch, the AIM
credited an optimum excellence
rating of 1000 points. "No oth
er organization," the report
stated, "over so long a period
would rate as high in social
function, despite the blemishes,
and few can equal the social
function of the Church as a
present day matter. Certainly
no other religious society at
tempts such broad services both
to its members and the com
mur'ty ." This function, the
report continued, "almost de
fies comprehension." Under the
term "social function," the AIM
considered educational and cul
tural contributions made in the
course of 19 centuries.
From the management efficien
cy standpoint, the AIM claimed
that two weaknesses existed:
“There is too little provision
for staff research work, the re
sult of which would he available
to Bishops on a requested basis.
Also, too much line and staff re
sponsibility is still vested in the
Pope himself, to the possible det
riment of his good health, study
and spiritual leadership. Popp Pi
us XII has heen seeing on the av
erage, two thousand people daily.
He works seven days a week and
has little time away from his du
ties, except for food and prayer.
No other ruler, temporal or spir
itual, adheres to such an astound
ing scnedule.”
In the field of education, the
AIM report held that Catholic
grade schools, high schools and
colleges "should be encouraged
and aided by everyone, and
their value to the state be rec
ognized Parochial school
children, Catholic, Jow or Prot
estant, should have the same
government advantages as to
travel, food and books, as the
student in the directly support
ed public schools Any other
procedure will eventually have
the effect of eliminating Chris
tian or Jewish education and of
producing a common civiliza
tion from a common world.
When an entire nation travels
in one educational direction, It
cannot survive a marked
change in circumstances."
Criticisms Im p|pr| at Church
management included:
1) The “advanced age” of Cardi
nals in charge of Roman congre
2) Nepotism has hern "curtail
ed hut not eliminated.”
3) The charge that the Catholic
Church "is the only government
in the world that makes no public

Catholic Unit
Assails Crop
Surplus Plan
President Eisenhower's “soil
hank” proposals for reducing
farm surpluses will not ach
ieve this end and will subject
small farmers to even great
er economic strain, the exe
cutive committee of the Na
tional Catholic Rural Life
Conference warned here.
In a statement issued after its
two-day gathering, the commit
tee had these points to make on
the plan for dealing with the
farm problem:
1) It regretted that propos
als for solution "ore deeply col
ored by an atmosphere of parti
son politics."
2) It reminded that farm prob
lems “involve fundamental hu
man values and cannot justly be
treated as merely an exercise in
cold economic theory .”
3) It expressed surprise that the
President’s program made no pro
visions for the needs of migra
tory workers.
4) It recommended that grain
crop allotments, when used,
should be based on land capabil
ities rather than historical bases
5) It agreed with the Prosi
dent's recommendation of the
"dollar limit" on payments
made to those cooperating in
farm programs.
6) It suggested more liberal use
hy the International Cooper
ation Administration of funds for
wider foreign distribution of ac
cumulated food stocks, thus aid
ing relief agencies in feeding the
hungry in needy nations.
7) It wondered how the farm
er's cooperative could be ignor
ed in proposals, particularly
because of the part these or
ganizations play in "alleviating
the pressure or price spreads
between farmer and consumer."
The executive committee stat
ed that the President's proposals
for reducing the surplus would be
ineffective because “experience
has proven that farmers can util
ize fertilizers and improved tech
nology to increase yields to off
set their reduction in acreage.’’
This reduction would not ser
iously handicap large farm oper
ations, hut to the small farmer
it could mean the difference be
tween getting by and going under,
the statement said.
