State's Population, Economic Status
Outlined in Volume by Prof. Haber Engagement A711101111 ced
and a Group of Associate Scholars

A valuable study of Michigan's
future, compiled by Dr. William
Haber, dean of the College of
Literature. Science and the Arts
of the University of Michigan,
together with U. of M. Professors
W. Allen Spivey and Martin R.
Warshaw, both of the graduate
school of business administration,
reveals important facts about the
status of the automobile industry
and the increasing number of
youths under 24.
Their study, entitled "Michigan
in the 1970s," was published by
the U. of M. Bureau of Business
This important work serves
as a warning to Michigan to be
prepared to meet the problem
of creating new jobs because of
their prediction that by 1970 the
auto industry will fill the needs
of only 20 per cent of the state's
job seekers.
The three authors state that in
spite of the expected rise in the

Mrs. Harvey Berman


Marilyn Lucas became the bride
of Harvey Berman in a recent cer-
emony at the Statler Hilton Hotel.
The couple are the children of
Mr. and Mrs. Samuel B. Lucas,
19481 Mark Twain, and Mr. and
Mrs. Joseph Berman, 17531 Pine-
The gown was of rose pointe
Chantilly lace over peau de soie,
with an empire bodice, open neck-
line, bateau sleeves and floor-length,
dome-shaped skirt with a watteau
train of matching lace. She wore
a rose pointe Chantilly lace man-
tilla and carried tea roses over her
confirmation Bible.
Maid of honor was the bride's
sister, Suzanne Lucas. Matron of
honor was Mrs. Herbert Fran-
kel. Mrs. Gary Eisenberg, Steph-
anie Katz and Judy Utley were
bridesmaids. Junior bridesmaid
was Carol Bensman.
Ellis M. Roth was best man.
Ushers were Dr. Bernard D. Ber-
man and Louis Berman, brothers

and Michael Alterman.

production of automobiles to 10
million by 1970 and 121/2 million
by 1980, only a fraction of the
job needs will be filled by that
They assert. however: "The
creation of 860,000 new jobs in the
state during the 15 years between
1960 and 1975, on the other hand,
is not impossible."
Thus, it is "neither as prophets
of doom nor _highly optimistic"
that they approach the developing
In their comments and recom-
mendations, Drs. Haber, Spivey
and Warshaw, emphasizing the
need for maintaining the histo-
rically large share of employ-
ment in the manufacture of au-
tomobiles, declared that "non-
automotive durable goods indus-
tries must grow at a faster pace
in Michigan" and that this state
"must produce a supply of well-
trained manpower to meet the
demands created by advancing
They urge that a healthy busi-
ness climate be maintained to
assure investments in Michigan
industries; that education and re-
training programs sponsored by
industry and government be en-
larged, adding that job creation
is closely related to the education
of persons in the labor force.
They also point to the "vital
importance that economic oppor-
tunities sufficiently attractive to
better educated people be creat-
ed" to improve the state's record
of retaining the most productive
segment in society.
The new study shows that an
overwhelming demand will be
made for higher education of
the state's youth because there
will be a vast increase of close
to 80 per cent in the 17.24 age
An unbalanced spacial popula-
lation distribution is indicated,
with 50 per cent of the state's
population in the Detroit's Me-
tropolitan area, and 75 per cent
of the state's population residing
in 10 urban area clusters.
The U. of M. scholars point to
a disturbing impact upon the
state's skill level due to the out-
ward movement of more than 180,-
000 whites from Michigan be-
tween 1955-60.
It is predicted that the number
of pre-school children will decline
by 1970 but will rise rapidly by
1980, that those in the 15-24 age
group will nearly double by 1975.
Those 65 and over are expected
by 1980 to form an increasing por-
tion of the population of Michi-
The emphasis of the three co-
authors of the new study is on
education, training and retrain-
ing of workers as "a recognized
part of a broad-gauged man-
power utilization plan." They
point especially to the need for
more retraining.
Problems related to the national
economy, the supply of capital,
Michigan's demographic analysis,
Detroit's future and the social
structure of Michigan's labor mar-
ket are dealt with by a group of
authoritative contributors to this
volume — Sidney Sonenblum,
James J. O'Leary, David Gold-
berg, Lowell D. Ashby, Wilbur R.
Thompson and Louis A. Ferman.
In his introduction to the vol-
ume, Prof. Haber expresses the
hope that these studies will lead
to more detailed and intensive
research analyses.

50 years ago but now the Western
world is itself practicing • deforma-

He cited the resolution adopted
by the American Academy of

were condemned as harmful to the
development of children's feet.
"It is ironic," he continued, "that
