City Plans Ahead for Population Shift

Clinic Researches, Offers Guidance

United States has not extended
The Communist government
later in 1951 sold the jade to a
citizen of India named Singh. The
sale which was for $60,000 took
place in Shanghai. Singh then
took the collection to India.
Singh in turn sold the collection
to a representative of the Doe
Museum of New York, a corpora-
tion, for $100,000. The contract
was fully executed in New Delhi.
Also at the time of the sale the
full history of the collection was
disclosed to the buyer, including
the confiscation.
Jade Displayed
The Doe Museum took the col-
lection to New York and put it on
display. Smith heard of it and
came to New York to claim it.
Both his demand for the return of
the collection or for payment for
it were refused by the respondent.
He filed for return of the jade
or for payment of $200,000, which
was considered to be its present
value on April 1, 1957 in the
United States District Court for
the Southern District of New
At this trial the respondent in-
cluded in his pleading possibly
relevant Chinese and Indian law,
while the petitioner introduced a
letter from the Secretary of State
which stated in part the United
States has not recognized the so-
called nationalization decrees of
the Chinese Communist govern-
ment and also the United States
recognizes the Nationalist govern-
ment as the only lawful govern-
ment of China.'
Parties Agree
Both parties agreed that no gov-
ernment regulations on trading
apply to objects of art such as
the jade and also that the statute
of limitations has not extinguished
Smith's claim.
The District Court decided in
favor of the Doe Museum and the
United States Court of Appeals for
the Second Circuit affirmed the
verdict. In October of 1958 the
Supreme 'Court of the United
SStates agreed to hear the case.
Used Three Points
The petitioners based their ar-
" guments for the compensation of
Smith for his jade on three main
points. In part these were based on
the United States non-recognition
of Red China. Because of this any
decrees made by that country
., legalizing such seizures cant not be
acceptable'., Even not. considering
the non-recognition, they con-
tinued, this seizure was a violation
of public international law. -
In their arguments the respond-
' ents claimed under both Indian
law and the laws of New York the
Museum had a legal claim to the
jade. They) also stressed the point
that although we do not officially
recognize Communist China, it
must be granted they have a
sovereign right to govern and
make laws within the Chinese

appointment that they asked such
basic questions about what they

Dr. Harry -R. Shipman, recent-
ly-appointed'Ann Arbor Civil De-

much pleased" with the test. He
said the twenty-odd workers in

He will meet with the various
city departments and department

how preparations could be im-

Directed by Prof. Frederick
Wyatt of the psychology depart-

adults and children and conducts
an active program in graduate

Further explaining the ap-

clinic, pointed out that a close
emotional relationship between
client and psychologist is neces-

Through this relationship a pa-

of his feelings and ideas.

By providing a relaxed atmos-
phere in which defensiveness may
be progressively eased, the treat-
mentseeks to help the client to
understand, to accept and to
modify his reaction patterns and
their role in his difficulties. In its
diagnostic and therapeutic work
the clinic is aided by psycho-,
analysis contributions and social

The 1959 edition of the Mich!-

book, will have "Destiny's Wheel"
as its theme.
An attempt will be made, ac-
cording to, C. David Martenson,
'59Ed.,-to make this year's 'Ensian
a "unified book." As part of this
unification, the honoraries and
professional fraternities will be
placed with the respective schools
they represent.
The yearbook will have several
new features this year, including
a new section on culture, which
will summarize the 1958-59 sea-
son's lectures, concerts, special
films and drama events.
Features on International Week
and Spring Weekend will be in-
cluded in the seven pages of color
contained in the 'Ensian. There
will be a color foldout picture of

Budget Plans
Members of the Ann Arbor
Board of Education discussed a
detailed budget for the 1959-60.

ing last night.
A booklet containing budget
estimates will be submitted to the
Washtenaw County Tax Alloca-
tion Board. Total estimated budget
for tho year is just shy of $5 mil-
lion. This is an increase of. $168
thousand over the current -budget.

Will Not Take
Reelection Bid,

A-map of Ann Arbor with a pin

the basement of a former school
building on Wells St.
Each May a school-census is
taken, and the pins moved around
to mark the children's current
homes. This process, central to the
city's complex planning for new
schools, is directed by school su-
perintendent Jack Elzay,
Currently the city is building
one school, the northwest junior
high on Sunset Road at the in-
tersection of Newport.
To Take Bids
In addition, a six-room addi-
ition to North Side Elementary
is off the drawing boards, he said,
and bids will be taken Wednesday.
Two elementary schools, one in
Buhr Park in the southeast and
another in Lakewood in the west,
are planned for occupancy in
September, 1960, but "neither is on
the boards yet" according to Elzay.
He explained he is now in the
process of inspecting brochures
from 22 or 23 architects, looking
at buildings they've built and talk-
ing to their owners.
Elzay Screens
He will narrow -the choice to
seven or eight firms, then submit
their applications to the school
board for interviews, Elzay con-
All of these projects are part of
a 10-year program for qew schools,
subject to population shift or
other difficulties.
But the plans are unlikely to be
very far wrong.
Missed by 23
"This year," Elzay said, "we have
11,000 students in school and
missed by 23."
But coming this close isn't very
hard, he said, with the annual
census and a correction factor of
twice as many entering school as
leaving each year.
And the school system follows
closely other groups which plan
for city growth, he said.

The state legislature is faced
with three rival plans to provide
from $300 million to over $370
million a year in state aid to
public schools.
The latest proposal is the Michi-
gan Education Association plan for
a distribution based on a unit of
27 pupils for each certified em-
ployee-a system that emphasized
class size.
The bill was introduced by Rep.
Allison Green (R-Kingston) floor
leader in the House.
County Tells
Renewal Plan
A renewal project, comparable
to Ann Arbor's Urban Renewal
program, is being considered for
12 townships in the eastern section
of Washtenaw County, according
to County Planning Director Rob-
ert D. Carpenter.
"We hope to get federal funds
so that we can draw up a county
master plan," Carpenter said. "I
have asked Ivan D. Carson, re-,
gional director of urban , renewal,
to inform us of our eligibility as
to the grant limitation that would
be placed on our project and the
steps necessary to accomplish our
Carpenter has informally don-
tacted Tracey Augur, director of
Urban Planning Assistance, and
Harold Merrill, his assistant, in
The area considered for the
renewal plan includes 432 square
miles, 18 cities, villages and town-
ships, and has a population of
approximately 123,491.
Townships included in the area
are Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, Salem,
Superior, Augusta, Northfield,
Pittsfield, York, Webster, Scio,
Lodi and Saline.
The group must prove it is em-
powered legally to petition for,
and spend funds. It also must pro-
vide 50 per cent of the money
required -with non-federal funds,
and prove it is technically qualified
to perform the work.

Bring Results

This bill would discard the pres-
ent formula-- $190 gross allow-
ance for each child plus a "de-
ductible millage" factor, based .on
the premise of equal opportunities
for all children in a class of rea-
sonable size and with a teacher
adequately paid.
Every district would have to levy
an eight mill local property tax
to qualify. The present tax is
seven mills.
In addition, the bill would order
state support for schools decreased
as local districts' ability to fl-
nance education improves.
A different measure sponsored
by the Michigan School Board As-
sociation and the State Depart-
ment of Public Instruction would
abolish the "gross allowance" plan
and divide funds on a new for-
mula averaging about $9.50 more
a child than at present. The aver-
age district would get $161 a child.
This bill would cost about $50
million dollars more than the
present law.
A measure advanced' by "equali-
zation" districts is given little
chance of passage. It is heavily
weighted in favor of poorer dis-
tricts and would cost an estimated
$345 million.
Present state aid is financed
through earmarked -sales, cigaret
and liquor taxes. These taxes are
insufficient to meet the formula,
and are being augmented by a
state general fund appropriation of
about $27 million for the current
fiscal year.

While up in the attic last week hiding from the tax:man, I came
across a letter, yellow with age, that dear old Dad had sent me
when I was a freshman. I reproduce it below in the hope that
it may light your way as it did mine.
"Dear Son, (Dad always called me Son. This was short for
Sonnenberg, which used to be my first name. I traded it last
year with a man named Max. He threw in two outfielders and
a left-handed pitcher... But I digress.)
"Dear Son, (Dad wrote)
4 I suppose you are finding college very big and bewildering,
and maybe a little frightening too. Well, it need not be that way
if you will follow a few simple rules.
."First of'all, if you have any problems, take them to your
teachers. They want to help you. That's what they are there for.
Perhaps they seem a little aloof, but that is only because they
are so busy. You will find your teachers warm as toast and
friendly as pups if you will call on them at an hour when they
are not overly busy. Four a.m., for instance.
"Second, learn to budget yqur time. What with classes, activi-
ties, studying, and social life all competing for your time, it is
easy to fall into sloppy habits. Set up a rigid schedule and stick
to it. Remember, there are only 24 hours a day. Three of these
hours must be spent in class. For every hour in class you must,
of course, spend two hours studying. So there go six more
hours. Then, as we all know, for every hour studying, you must
spend two hours sleeping. This accounts for twelve more hours.
Then there are meals-three hours eagh for breakfast and lunch,
four hours for dinner. Never forget, Sonnenberg, you must
chew each mouthful twelve hundred times. You show me a
backward student, and I'll show you a man who bolts his food.

To keep ahead of population
growth, he continued, the school
board can't build buildings "out
in nowhere" but it can and does
buy land before the developers
move in and prices rise.

Rival Aid Plans Offered
For State Public Schools

C">- I



Prof. H. Harlan Bloomer of the
speech department said recently
that he would not seek re-election
in June as president of the Ann
Arbor Board of Education.
"I regretfully announce that I
shall not be a candidate for re-
election to the Ann Arbor Board
of Education. Increased personal
and professional responsibilities
make it inadvisable for me to seek
to continue my membership on
the Board," he said.
"I hope that this announcement
will bring to the attention of other
interested citizens the need for
candidates for this office seriously
interested and deeply concerned.
"During the period of nearly
three years that I have served with
the board, a number of important
decisions have been made and
plans have been formulated which
will affect the growth of our com-
munity and the lives of our chil-
dren. These decisions and plans
have been the result of co-opera-
tive effort by members of the
school staff, the Board of Educa-
tion and interested citizens."

"But college is more than just sleeping, eating, and studying.
There are also many interesting activities which you must not
miss. You'll want to give at least three hours a day to the campus
newspaper, and, of course, another three hours each to the
dramatic and music clubs. And let's say a total of eight hours
daily to the stamp club, the debating club, and the foreign
affairs club. Then, of course, nine or ten hours for fencing and
bird-walking, and another ten or twelve for ceramics and three-
