ess Face Repeated Unen

The study, by Prof. Wilbur Co-
hen of the school of social work,
Prof. William Haber of the eeco-
nomics department, and Eva
Mueller of the Survey Research
Center, is based on more than
5,000 interviews conducted by the
Center during 1958-59.
Nearly two-thirds of those who
were out of work at some time
between November, 1957, and No-
vember, 1959, said unemployment
was "usual" for them, according
to the study.
Unemployment 'Unusual'
Among those who did not ex-
perience unemployment during
this same two-year interval, 95
per cent said unemployment would
be "unusual" for them.
"These finding suggest that un-
der present economic conditions
much of the unemployment that
occurs affects the same workers
repeatedly, while many other

people seem to be wholly im-
mune," the authors comment.
"Even during 1958-59, a reces-
sion period, only about 30 to 40
per cent of the unemployed were
people who were out of work
seldom or only every few years."
Duration Longer
Furthermore, the duration of
unemployment for those who de-
scribed joblessness as a seasonal
or recurrent problem was longer
than for those who described this
experience as "unusual."
Occupation, family income, edu-
cation, and age were found to be
factors affecting the likelihood of
being unemployed. Four out of
five heads of families who at-
tended college said they had not
been affected by the recession.
Those in the weakest position in
terms of skills and material re-
sources are most likely to be af-
fected by unemployment and to
experience relatively long spells
of it. These include unskilled
laborers, those with low incomes,
those with little education, and
the very young and old.

The recession's impact was es-
pecially felt in large families.
Although the amount of unem-
ployment insurance benefits paid
during the 1958 - 1959 recession
reached a record high, they cov-
ertd only a small fraction of the
wage loss resulting from jobless-

one in
all the

Benefits Low
out of every five unem-
family breadwinners re-
no benefits, while another
five did not receive benefits
time they were out of work.

"In the future, unemployment
insurance could be made a much
more powerful stabilizer in re-
cessions than it was in 1958," the
authors advised.
'"The problem of persistent un-
employment in certain occupa-
tions and geographic areas is a
matter for concern. In the com-
ing years, when the World War II
babies will enter the labor market
in great numbers, the problem of
holding down the rate of unem-
ployment may become increasingly
difficult, even in good years."

On Changes
In Education
William Whitehouse, president
of Albion College, will lecture on
"Economic Change and Higher
Education" today at 4:10 p.m. in
Aud. A, Angell Hall.
Whitehouse will also address
the Ann Arbor Rotary club and
will participate-in a discussion of
"The Future of American Higher
The discussion, at 8:00 p.m.,
will also include Prof. David M.
French, dean of the Flint College
branch of the University, and
Prof. E. Lowell Kelly, chairman of
the psychology department.
Whitehouse is chairman of the
Board of Trustees of Citizens Re-
search Council of Michigan. In
1958 he was president of the
Association of American Col-
leges. He has held numerous other
national and state positions, in-
cluding service as a member of
the executive committee of the
Michigan White House Conference
on Education.
He was formerly dean of liberal
arts at Wayne State University,
and holds honorary degrees from
the University and several other

Mutual corruption has been the
product of coexistance between
Russia and her satellites in East-
ern Europe since the Hungarian-
Polish uprisings of 1956, accord-
ing to Prof. Paul Zinner of Colum-
bia University.
The Soviet drive to build new
societies was diminished by the
rebellions, he said, while com-
munist resolution has been eroded
and exposed to corruptions by
pressures from below to make
Prof. Zinner spoke yesterday to
the fourth annual Congress of
the Association of Hungarian Stu-
dents in North America, which
met at the University.
Russia was forced by the riots
to make concessions which led to
a state of mutual accomodation
which neither the Soviet Union
nor Hungary is contented with,
he said.
Instead of increasing freedom,
the Russians have given the re-
bellious states more catering to
national images and a slackening
of industrialization.
People in Eastern Europe have
become less fervent for sudden
revolution in this state of mutual
corruption which is the essence
of coexistance, he continued,
Before the revolutions of 1956.
he pointed out, Soviet policy had
been successful almost every-
where. The uprisings, however,
shattered the iron logic of totali-
tarian rule, Prof. Zinner said, by
showing Russia that rebellions are
possible on the home ground,
Also speaking at the Congress'
Rep. Alvin Bentley (R-Mich.)
said student movements number
among the strongest forces for or
against freedom.
"If Communism ,..,wasn't able
to convert the Hungarian youth
who knew no other system, then
it became obvious that it could
hold no sway over the rest of the
population-and this encouraged
the free world and discouraged
the Communists."

TOO DARN HOT-That's what this University coed may be thinking campus is during the summe
session. Too, hot, that is, for such sticky subjects as anthropology or political science. When the weel
end comes, with its invitation to outdoor relaxation, it is a different story entirely. But until then
cool drink and that rare thing-an air conditioned room -make scholarly life a little easier to bear

Man More
Like Wolves
Than Apes ?
Man has possibly more social
behavior traits in common with
wolves than with most of the
apes, according to Prof. Marston
Bates, of the zoology department.
Speaking on "The Human Ani-
mal," a program in the "Science:
Quest and Conquest" series pro-
duced by University television,
Prof. Bates said man is distinc-
tive in three ways: Cooperation
between members, association of
adult males in groups larger than
the family, and long-time rela-
tionships between members.
Many animals form groups, he
said, but these are largely recur-
rent or seasonal, and even among
apes there is little adult male
cooperation, and the groups are
not permament.
Both man and wolf are hunters,
while the apes are mostly vege-
tarians, he went on. The adult
male human and wolf participate
in child rearing and care, while
females do the child-rearing
among the monkeys.



Group To Consider Improving
Civil EngineeringCurricula


Educators, engineers, and in-
dustrialists will gather today at
the University for a special three-
day conference to discuss the
shortcomings in current engineer-
ing curriculum programs and de-
bate improvements.
The conference, to which 138
colleges, universities and institu-
tions with accredited engineering
courses have been invited to send
official delegates, is being staged
under a grant by the American
Society of Civil Engineers and
The Cooper Union, of New York.
Opening the program will be a
luncheon address on "Back-
grounds and Objectives of the
Conference on Civil Engineering
Education," by Felix Wallace, of
the Cooper Union, who is general
chairman of the conference.
At the terminating luncheon
Friday the official delegates will
be asked to vote on proposals
leading toward improvement in
engineering curricula to keep pace
with technological advances.
This general conference is the
result of two planning confer-
ences held earlier this year on the
East coast, at which the program
for the general conference was
developed and a resolution adopt-
ed as an objective.
In addition to talks at three

prepared luncheon meetings, 11
specially prepared papers will be
presented, and followed by pre-
pared discussions.
Prof. Bruce Johnston, of the
University structural engineering
department, is chairman of the
committee on local arrangements.
