Two years later, another amend-
ment, this time submitted by the
Legislature, also failed. Both
mendments would have applied
toal83 counties. In 1942 and,
1944, efforts by constitutional ini-
tiative to secure home rule for
Wayne county alone were struck:
down in statewide referenda.
Amendments Defeated
While the county itself has1
changed its spots, the plan of
county organization has not. Thisl
has left Michigan with a constitu-;
tional form of county government
which is, in substance, the same:
as it was 100 years ago.-
The large county boards are,
representative of townships andt

cities. The administrative officers
are directly elected. Such a picture
contrasts with the spread in theI
cities of small councils and ap-
pointed administrators under'
home home rule.
Allow Home Rule
Seven of the other states now
allow one, some, or all of their,
counties to draft home rule char-
ters. In California where home
rule is available to all 57 coun-k
ties, charters have been framed
and adopted by 10, the opportunity
having been seized by the metro-
politan and urban counties.
As to townships, the tradition
goes back to the territorial period
before Michigan was a state.
First described in the Constitu-
tion of 1850, township govern-

ment was carried over in 1908
largely as it always had been. Be-
cause of the strong attachment of
rural groups, abolition of this local
unit or even radical change is not'
If the Legislature could be
granted discretion in determining
its form of government, this would
permit adaptation for those town-
ships now becoming urbanized.
In a Michigan constitutional.
convention, home rule for cities
and villages will not be at stake
if judged on the record. Delegates
might find technical improve-
ments to make,
The real issue in any re-drafting
on local governments relates to
home rule for the once rural, now
urban county unit.

more problems.
The group, which is headed by aa
leader who allows minority groups
to be heard, arrives at better deci-
sions, L. Richard Hoffman of the
psychology department said.
Speaking at a Society for the
Advancement of Management
meeting last night, he explained
that normally when the majority
of a group would individually ar-
rive at a wrong decision, they will
arrive at this decision as a group.
The group puts a great deal of1
pressure on the individuals to#

tend to accept decisions and not to
behave independently. This results
in considerable conformity in
many industries, Hoffman de-
w Business is becoming more aware
'of the importance of independent
thinking, he remarked. Evidence
is piling up in many cases that
workers who think for themselves
are more efficient.
Research by social scientists has
revealed that competent men with
the greatest knowledge in the sub-
ject make the best decisions
whether they are the line foreman
or the president of the company.
