    Dr. William Jurma, a speech communication professor at Texas Christian University, once conducted a study of offices in Fort Worth, Texas. Here’s a summary of his findings.

    • Wooden desks are a must. Forget metal or chrome.
    • In and out boxes are out.
    • A dark-colored phone is best. Beige is acceptable.
    • A clean desk is not essential, but an orderly one is.
    • Staplers, rubber bands, calendars and paper clips should be stored in drawers.
    • A legal pad should be in view.
