Says Urban Future
To Come Piecemeal

SEA'T'LE-The future of metro-
politan government depends on
"decades of pragmatic process in
muddling through to specific solu-
tions, rather than any program-
matic approach which appeals to
specialists," Prof. Arthur W. Bro-
mage, chairman of the political
science department, said yester-
"Let us recognize frankly that
netropolitan governments involve
interests, vested or otherwise;
constituencies; recourses to action
either overt or covert; and always
two or more sides to public is-
sues," Prof. Bromage continued.
"For these and other reasons,
no one expects that many of our
metropolitan areas will, in the
near future, have federated super-
governments with a neat division
of aspects of functions between the
upper-tier council and the on-go-
ing local units."
Difference in Approach
Speaking at a Seattle luncheon
meeting of the 2 7th annual Insti-
tute of Government, sponsored by
the University, Prof. Bromage said
that voters fail to see the basic:
problems confronting metropolitan
planning as do the experts.
But this is not the only diffi-
culty. "Metropolitan leaders are
lacking, politically speaking." In
view of the independence of local
jurisdictions within the urban cen-
ter, "even a central city mayor has
small chance of integrating the
political whole."

Hits Usage
Of Words
In Health
The Institute on School Mental
Health Programs last Tuesday
heard a psychological consultant
deliver several sharp criticisms of
"fuzzy words" used in describing
children's mental health, plus an
unfavorable opinion on advanced
classes in school.
J. Clayton Lafferty, president of
the Michigan Psychological Asso-
ciation, decried the "extremely
mystical" terminology in his field.
"For instance, the educational
term 'under - achievement' tells
nothing about why or what 'under-
achievement' really is."
This lack of clarity "makes it
difficult" to pass along the special
skills teachers need in handling
children with problems involving
mental health.
And he criticized the idea of
putting children in special classes
according to intelligence, pointing
out what he called an injustice
to the less gifted students. "Evi-
dence shows that all students do
better when put in the class with
the bright pupils."
Lafferty also said that 10 per
cent of the school age population is
sufficiently disturbed as to war-
rant special help, and that )ne of
every 18 will spend some time in
a mental hospital.

Study Gypsum
In Michigan
A team of University researchers
is conducting the first public
scientific analysis since 1904 of
gypsum deposits within the state.
As part of an overall study by
the Institute of Science and Tech-
nology of evaporite deposition in
Michigan, the researchers are
examining aspects such as the fac-
tors in the formation of gypsum,
the types of environments in
which it can be found and some
of its physical characteristics.
To help in compiling statistics
from well cores and figuring pat-
terns of deposition, much of the
data is being classified and stored
in a computer, Frank Moser said.
He is one of four researchers
under the IST directly working on
the gypsum project, which is ex-
pected to continue through the
next few years.

the area-wide authorities, it is
wise to make the centers of power
functional. "Otherwise, metropoli-
tan aspects become splintered
among various agencies."
Prof. Bromage defined metro-
politan government as the merger
of units or services of government
within an urban area. This term-
inology could include city-county
consolidation, authorities t h a t
control one or more metropolitan
functions, or a federated super-
government administering t h e
services as a whole.

E The Communists may immedi-

true for non-Communist Western
Europe, and that their statistics
will show a greater average rate

(ECE), and are the latest and
best available, they are based on
data submitted by the Communist
countries themselves and at least
some of them were obviously con-
cocted for propaganda purposes.
Another reason for reservation;
is more scientific. The basic prin-
ciples of statistics are applied
more loosely in the Communist
countries than in the West. There-
fore, Communist statistics of na-
tional income or indexes of in-
dustrial and agricultural output
are often useless for purposes of
economic analysis or for making
comparison between the Soviet
bloc and the West.
U.S. Experts Complacent
For this second reason, United
States economic experts are satis-
fied with ECE's handling of the
statistics, which consists of com-
parative percentages only. These'
percentages clearly point out
t h e deceleration of economic
growth in 1961, caused mainly by
the debacle of agricultural pro-
duction in what used to be central
Europe's breadbasket.
According to these figures only
three nations out of.the eight can
boast of an increased growth in
1961: Poland, Romania, and Al-
Agriculture was doubtless the
major factor to the acceleration
in Poland, the only Communist
bloc country which has "decollec-
tivized" its farms. Romania, on
the other hand, is the only coun-
try in the area which enjoyed pro-
gress in industry and trade, main-
ly in oil. The favorable figures in
Albania are somewhat of a mys-
tery considering the tiny "peo-
ple's republic's" increasing isola-
lation within the European Com-
munist bloc.
Basic Agrarian Problem
The real trouble in 1961 was in
agriculture. The serious drought
in most countries depressed pro-
duction in the first year of virtu-
ally complete collectivization (ex-
cept in Poland) throughout the
While the "socialist sector" of

cultivated by collective and state-
owned farms, was only 13 per cent
in Poland, it was between 86 per
cent (in Bulgaria) and 99 per
cent (in the Soviet Union) else-
where. The fact that only Poland
- and again Albania - were the
exceptions to the general picture
of stagnation in agricultural pro-
duction might be a great satis-
faction to those who maintain
that no indoctrination or pressure
can "persuade" the farmer to toil
harder on the field which does
not belong to him,

poultry and egg production, while
importing whatever the country
needs in grain.
Common Market Concern
This, on the other hand, ex-
plains Poland's greater concern
about the Common Market. For-
ty per cent of Poland's exports go
to the capitalist countries and the
Common Market's external tariff
wall, protecting the agriculture of
the six member nations, could
have disastrous consequences to
the economy of Poland.
Diplomats of these two coun-
tries do not conceal their con-
cern. They hint that loss of their
Western markets could force Po-
land 'to seek closer economic ties
with Moscow,
Rather Gloomy and Appalling
Although the agricultural pic-
ture was and remains rather
gloomy in the area in general,
there is no question of people go-
ing hungry, officials caution.
There is enough to eat, but the
quality of the products is appall-
ingly low even in such a well-
favored agricultural country as
But while nobody is starving,

since the Communist takeover in
the late 1940's--a frustrating lack
