New Club
"The Engineer's Wives of the
University of Michigan," a new
club which is open to the wife of
any graduate or undergraduate
student at the University, will
meet for the first time at 8 p.m.
Oct. 7 in Lane Hall, Mrs. Shirley
Graesley, publicity chairman, an-
nounced today.
The wife of any instructor or
professor in the engineering school
is automatically an honorary
member said Mrs. Graesley. Mem-
bership in the organization can be
obtained at the first meeting where
Prof. John Young and one of the
Assistant Deans of the engineering
school will be the guest speakers.
The purpose of the organization
shall be to acquaint the wives of
engineering students with various
fields of engineering, thus enabling
them to better understand the
work of their husbands and to also
promote fellowship among engi-
neer's wives, Mrs. Graesley said.

Family Size Is Same
In All Income Groups

The idea that poorer people4
have larger families is being con-
fronted with evidence that all
income groups are having about
the same number of children, ac-
cording to Research Associate
David Goldberg of the University's
Institute of Public Administration.
Goldberg's conclusions, arrived
at after a year's study of popula-
tion and ecology records compiled
by the University's Detroit Area
Study and various other reports,
coincide with a recent fertility
study by the University's Survey
Research Center.
Factors Change
Certain factors affect family
size and decision change as the
family grows, Goldberg said.
Earily in marriage, close home
and k dinsip ties are important
when considering additional chil-
Later, after a couple has two or
three children, the question be-
comes similar to that of purchas-
ing a luxury item, such as a' new
car: "Can ; we afford another
Whether the husband or wife is
the chief decision-maker, in the
individual family, -is likely to
determine whether or not there
will be a large or small family, he
"Men, it appears, are primarily
influenced by socio-economic in-
dicators such as status and in-
come. For instance, if a man is

earning $12,000 and thinks he ,can
afford more children, the couple
will have them if the husband is
the chief decision-maker
Participation Affects Wife
"But, he continued, we also have
to look at the wife as decision-
maker. A woman is influenced by
the extent to which there will be
participation in kinship and
whether she likes to spend her
leisure time around the home,"'
Goldberg explained.
However, Goldberg said, as a
man (and his family) ascend the
status scale, competition for the
wife's leisure time crops up and,
in her role as decision makers she
must decide whether her leisure
will be home-centered or activity-
Goldberg scalled , these factors
the "cancelling effect" within the
high status family, processes in
favor of more children and those
working against more; children
tend to cancel each other.
"We think our basic. findings
show involvement in family af-
fairs may not be applicable to
urban societies alone, but to other
cultures also," he said.
"We'd like to try a cross-culture
analysis of fertility, one that might
have practical implications which
may be helpful in understanding
population problems in underde-
veloped areas," Goldberg con-,
