J rzy Kawalerowicz's "Joan of

standing film to come to Ann
Arbor this week from eastern
Europe. It is a subtle explosion
of religious duty versus moral am-

is strong in impact.

Bromage Cautions City Leaders
Against 'Erosion of Home-Rule'

'Home-rule cities and villages
must be aware of what is happen-
ing at the state capital, says Ar-
thur W. Bromage, professor of
political science at the University.
Home rule, a constitutional doc-
trine implemented by legislative
act is known by municipal officials
As- a "fluid battle line," declared
Professor Bromage last Thursday
at the annual convention of the
MichiganMunicipal League.
"Year after year, the threat is
poised of legislative invasion of
the home-rule doctrine," he said.
"It is an annual event for bills to
be introduced to control minimum
wages and/or maximum hours for
certain municipal employees, with

and local governments. He recom-
mended federal assistance to stu-
dents planning careers in govern-
ment, to universities for enriching
their present programs, and to
state and local governments to
develop effective career services
for their employees.
Macy, who is presently working
with an advisory group of mayors
and university officials on these
presidential proposals, called the
program a grants-in-people pro-
ject. One way to help state and
local governments to get qualified
career people, Macy said, would
be to extend the NDEA forgiveness
clause to civil servants. The clause
presently allows only teachers to
reduce their debt in NDEA loans
by up to 50 percent. Macy also
plans to recommend increased fed-
eral aid to cities, states, and uni-
versities.
Macy pointed out that a bill in-
troduced this year by Senator Ed-
mund S. Muskie (Maine) some-
what parallels his grants-in-peo-
ple proposals. Extensive hearings
have already been held on the
bill, which would provide grants
to states to develop educational
opportunities in civil service. Ac-
tion on Muskie s bill is not likely
this late in the session, however.

tween municipal corporate bodies
and organized employees is the
most glaring example in the 1965-
66 sessions according to Bromage.
'Such a bill, if it were to become
a law, threatens the power of city
and village councils in the area of
fiscal responsibility. Councilmen
would no longer be able to make
the final decisions as to the balan-
cing of revenues and expendi-
tures," he explained.

rule can be written into a state

hold such statutes binding on
home-rule cities."
The Michigan Municipal League
must monitor the state legislature
as to bills leading to the erosion
of home-rule according to the po-
litical scientist. The voters, too,
must realize their responsibility
for creating government or mis-
government for themselves, he
added.
'Home rule is more than legal
powers and local charters," cau-
tioned Bromage. "Municipal gov-
ernments are not like electric
clocks running automatically on
a remote power source. They must
be wound up regularly and oper-
ated by fallible human beings.
"City hall is what mayors and
councilmen do to fix policy; what
appointed administrators and em-
ployees do to implement policy
Home-rule, like any system, can
retreat into caretaker govern-
ments, unless voters, mayors, and
councilmen set community goals
Home rule is only a legal gateway
to a healthy political process."
