Freedman Completes Fertility Study



Prof. Ronald Freedman of the
sociology department, director of
the Center for Population Stud-
ies, J. Y. Peng, Y. Takeshita and
T. H. Sun have recently concluded
a study of "Fertility Trends in
The study, which was done joint-
ly by the University's population
center and the Taiwan Population
Studies Center, will be published
next month in the British journ-
al, Population Studies. Population
progress can be studied in Tai-
wan since a continuous population
-register is kept there which is
"unique in scope and accuracy
among developing nations."
The 'survey reports that "fer-
tility rates have been falling
throughout Taiwan since 1958. The
patterns of fertility decline, signs'
of interest in family planning and
increasing urbanization, education
and development in Taiwan make
a continuing decline likely. It is
possible, if not probable, that
Taiwan may be the first high fer-
tility area since World War II to
experience a major fertility de-

This fertility may take -place
while important aspects of the
traditional Chinese family are

younger generation is beginning to
adopt family planning methods to
achieve traditional Chinese values
about family composition under
modern conditions, the study not-
Taiwan, has had considerable
social and economic development,
and the indices of modernization
are higher than are found in most:

developing high-fertility countries.
"Conditions are relatively fav-
orable for a fertility decline if high
rates for the following kinds of
development are pertinent: liter-
acy, education, urbanization, non-
agricultural employment, use of
mass media and communication
via the mails," the report said.
Rapid Fall
Favorable health and mortality
also prevail in Taiwan. After the
war there was a rapid fall in mor-
"Taiwan is one of the few high-
fertility countries in which the
low mortality-decline part of the
demographic revolution is an ac-
tuality. The low mortality and oth-
er indicators of social change are
all favorable on 'a-priori' grounds
to a decline in fertility. Such a
decline appears to have begun,
and there are indications that it
may continue and accelerate," the
study noted,
"Between 1958 and 1961, there
was a decline in fertility in- very
year for the island as a whole,
whether the measure used is the
crude birth rate, total fertility rate
or the general fertility rate."
Whole Island;
The crude birth rate between
1959-61 declined eight per cent,
the total rate nine per cent and
the general rate four per cent. The
decline was not confined to a few
areas, but was general throughout
the whole island.
"The generality of the fertility+
decline is indicated by the fact+
that it characterized not only ci-
ties and towns, but also the coun-3
tryside," the report stated.
"The fertility decline between
1958 and 1961 is especially great

There is an indication of a
consensus that a moderate fam-

"While approving what seems to
be 'modern' ideas about family

"There is reason to believe that

willingness to take positive action,

is likely that many who are inter-

Democrat Vows
Not To Ignore 'U'
The University would not be
ignored by a Democratic admin-
istration, Democratic mayoralty
candidate Dr. Albert F. Schneider
said recently.
"Contacts between the city hall
and the University should be reg-
ular and cooperative, rather than
arising from conflict."
To promote functional coopera-
tion between the city, and the
University, Dr. Schneider pro-
1) Encouragement of low-rental
housing for students with fami-
2) Establishment of small play-
ground areas near the campus for
young children;
3) Promotion of greater bicycle,
pedestrian and automobile safety
in the immediate campus area;
4) Active work with University'
planners inuthe development of
the North Campus area;
5) Investigation of the possibil-
ity of joint participation in the
construction of a conference cen-
6) Encouragement of advanced
graduate students in deriving in-
ternship experience in the munici-
pal government, and
7) Development in the central
business district plan of a suit-
able means for uniting the down-
town and campus areas into an
integrated, attractive city core.
Dr. Schneider also said that he
would work for property tax relief
for the senior citizens. He said
that tax relief would allow the
retirees to enjoy their own home
and that it would not add any
burdens to the city.

Summary of Action Taken by Student
Government Council at Its Meeting of
March 27, 1963
Referred: A motion concerning the es-
tablishing of' a Committee on Academ-
icc to the Committee on the University
for consideration of the structure of
such a committee.
Adopted: The following motion con-
cerning postal regulations:
FACT: On Monday, March 25, 1963,
Student Government Council received
two Post Office Department 2153-X,
Januarys1963 Forms. The message on
these forms reads as follows:
"This office is holding unsealed mail
matter addressed to you from a for-
eign country. Under Public Law 87-793,
.the Secretary of the Treasury has de-
termined this mail to be Communist
political propoganda. It cannot be de-
livered to you unless you have sub-
scribed to it, or otherwise want it.
Please check the appropriate spaces
under "Instructions" on this card and
return the card. If your reply is not re-
ceived by the date i dicated, it will be
assumed that you not want to re-
ceive the Publication (s)hlisted, or any
similar publications. This mail will
then be destroyed."
The two publications which these
forms were concerned with were The
world Student News and Resolutions-
7th International Union of Students.
Student Government Council has never
subscribed or otherwise solicited these
materials nor any other IUS materials.
PRINCIPLE: The classic tradition of
free inquiry within a democratic socie-
ty must, allow for the dissemination
of ideas and opinions. This is partic-
ularly crucial when applied to views
which are unpopular. If fallacious and
unpopular dogmas are deliberately sup-
pressed by governmental action, then
we run the risk of totalitarianism. Far
more will be gained if such ideas are
subjected to critical analysis and al-
lowed to stand or fall on their merits.
DECLARATION: This motion shall not
be construed to mean that Student
Government Council in any way ap-
proves of the record of the IUS. Stu-
dent Government Council of the Univer-
sity of Michigan disapproves of the ac-
tion of the Post Office for the following
1) At this time it is not necessary
for our government to act as a censor
of the mail in the area of political
2) It is Student Government Council's
belief that the best way to combat such
propaganda is through free discussion
and inquiry.
3) The form that the Post Office
is using does not allow a proper al-
ternative for thise who disagree with
the material but do not feel that its
circulation should be impaired for mor-
al reasons.
4) Many people might find it use-
ful to have ready access to propaganda.
The method currently used by the Post
Office Department interfered with such
ready access.

ACTION: Because of its commitment
to free inquiry Student Government
Council shall express its willingness
to receive the above-mentioned publi-
cations and similar documents that
are sent to it unsolicited.
MANDATE: Copies of this resolution
shall be forwarded to the Post Office
Department, the International Union
of Students, and other appropriate par-
Adopted: The following concerning
student parking facilities:
The Driving Code Revision Commit-
tee has been working for years to ob-
tain adequate student parking facili-
ties. It has received different uncom-
pleted commitments to alleviate the
parking situation: The paved triangular
lot by South Quadrangle has neverI
been fully utilized; the lots on North
Campus which were leveled with driv-
ing funds are now used for storage
parking; commitments for parking
structures have been promised but have
never been realized.
With these facts in mind, Student
Government Council instructs itsdele-
gates on the Driving Committee to
strive for implementation of one of
the following programs.
1) Subsidize student parking in exist-
ing structures; if this cannot be done,
2) Build a convenient parking struc-
ture for students only; if this cannot
be none,
3) Eliminate or reduce existing stick-
er rates and invest at interest money
already collected from student fees.
Approved: That Page 15 of the Uni-
versity Regulations concerning Student
Organizations under "Routine Activi-
ties" be changed so that the President
of Student GovernmentCouncil be able
to delegate approval power in calendar-
ing procedures to the Administrative
Secretary as well as to the Executive
Adopted: The following concerning
recent violence in the South:
PRINCIPLE: Students of a great
American University should associate
themselves directly, as concerned in-
tellectuals, with the movement for
equal rights and protection for all
human beings.
DECLARATION: Student Government
Council notes its sympathy for the
voter registration projects being con-
ducted by SNCC and therefore allo-
cates $10 fom F-1, General Council,
for use in rebuilding burned offices.
MANDATE: Student Government
Council mandates the President to
'send the following letter to the attor-
ney general of the United States and
to all members of Michigan's congres-
sional delegation:
Increased voter registration activity
by Negroes in Mississippi has resulted
in new outbreaks of racial violence.
The tension has reached a point which
now makes it necessary for the federal
government to restore law and order
and to provide equal protection for all
citizens. The following instances illus-
trate the urgent need for federal in-
March 1-Jim Travis, SNCC field sec-
retary, was shot in the shoulder and
spine by three white men in an un-
marked car.
March 3-Mrs. Nancy Brand, an active
voter registration worker, was forced
to free Greenwood, Miss., because she
was being harassed and could not get
FBI protection for herself and her eight
children, two grandchildren.
March 6-Two SNCC field secretaries
were shot at while in a car and were
injured by glass from car windows.
March 24-The SNCC office in Green-
wood was set on fire, burning records
and equipment.
March 27-Mr. Greene, a Greenwood
citizen active in voter registration, was
shot at in his home but is not injured.
Following this a demonstration was held
in Greenwood and all SNCC workers
were jailed without charges.

We request your immediate atten-
tion to this most pressing matter.

"Labor unions are on a plateau
today in terms of membership,"
Hy Kornbluh of the Institute of
Labor and Industrial Relations
said recently.
In spite of a rising population,
trade union membership is static,
he explainetd. "We can see the
loss in terms of both membership
and political strength. Places
where unions are declining are the
places where they once had their
main strength."
Kornbluh, who is Director of
the labor education and service
division of the -institute, said that
in mass production industries the
unions are feeling the brunt of
lost strength.
No Analogy
"We could look at the situation
and say that unions are on the.
way out, but people were saying
the same thing in the 20's and it
didn't happen, Kornbluh noted.
Thirty years ago, analysts of the
labor movement thought the
unions could not organize the mass
production workers but they did.
Today, many people are saying
the unions cannot organize the
white collar workers. "But I do
not think the evidence warrants.
this assumption," he commented.
In fact, some evidence points to
the opposite conclusion, Kornbluh
added. One of the fastest growing
unions is the retail clerks and the
growth is significant. Another
large growth has occurred in the
state, county and municipal em-
ployees union.
Changed Conditions
"The union movement does have
problems in orienting itself toward
effective concerted organizing, eco-
nomic, social and political action
under today's changed conditions.
It is conceivable that a new gen-
eration of labor leaders could find
solutions to these problems, there-
by stimulating union membership,"
he continued.
One of the most important prob-
lems the unions aro facing is
automation. "The question of job
security can and should be im-
portant at this point," Kornbluh
emphasized. Automation is per-
haps affecting the clerical service
industries harder than other in-
dustries, he noted.
But the hardest hit group is

the 18-year-old, while the unem-
ployed under 25 group is propor-
tionally larger today than ever
before, he said.
Labor Market
Kornbluh explained that the
youngest groups in the labor mar-
ket usually come in to replace
those who get sick, retire or quit.
With computers, however, the de-
mand for unskilled and clerical
workers falls since the normal re-
placements in the work force are
not made.
"The usual thing is to bring
youngsters in from the bottom
through restaurants, banks and
other service organizations. But
this is increasingly no longer the
case," Kornbluh said.
Trade unions of the unskilled
haven't seen their function as vo-
cationally educative. But, due to
the present situation, more study
is being given to the problem.
"Unions will say, though, that
these efforts cannot be made ef-
fectively until the national eco-
nomic growth rate rises," he said.
Significant Increase
This, in -turn, points up another
problem. Some economists are
raising the question of economic
growth and automation. If any
significant increase in demand for
a product arises in some indus-
tries, they will automate. This can
put more people out of work.
However, Kornbluh is not con-
vinced that this is the case. He
thinks that more study must be
given to the problem and more
rapid national economic .growth is
needed for other reasons than just
One of the problems for the
unions is that another organiza-
tional frontier is open-the low
paid, unskilled labor industries.
(This is in contrast to the organi-
zation of white collar workers.)
High Cost
"The low-paid, urban employed
may be an easier target for or-
ganization as well as some agri-
cultural workers.
"We ought to bear in mind that
a large part of the great surge in
unions organization which took{
place in the '30's was among the
urban, employed poor in manu-

Candidates Meet
In Public Debate
Republican Mayor Cecil 0. Creal
and the Democrat challenger for
his office, Dr. Albert Schneider,
met in the only public debate of
their campaign Wednesday night
at a political rally in Ann Arbor
High School.
The two candidates concentrat-
ed the bulk of their remarks on
the city's financial situation but
also commented on the proposed
new fair housing ordinance, and
the proposed new state constitu-
Both men agreed that more
money is needed to carry out
planned improvements in the city
in the next ten years.
Tax Base
However Creal felt that no tax
increase would be necessary if the
city's tax base could be expanded
by attracting research firms, if
the proposed new constitution
passes and gives the city more
money than it now receives from
the state, and if the University
continues to "participate" in city
Dr. Schneider, on 'the other
hand, felt that the property tax
was inadequate to cover the city's
needs and accused the mayor and
council of taking money from the
city's capital improvement fund
and placing it in the general fund
to give the city an apparently bal-
anced budget even though a loss
actually occurred.
He vowed that the Democrats,
if elected, would "quit juggling
funds, explain the city's financial
needs to the people and stimulate
discussion on various types of tax
City Charter
However, he added, the city
charter must be amended before
any changes are made in the city's
tax structure. The charter cur-
rently says that the city may only
collect taxes on real and personal
Neither Creal nor Dr. Schneider
said they would vote for the pro-
posed new fair housing ordinance
as it now stands. Creal felt that
some parts of the ordinance may
be illegal and should be removed.
Dr. Schneider called the pro-
posed ordinance "relatively weak."
He said that three non-contigu-
ous units should constitute a mul-
tiple dwelling instead of five as
in the current proposal and he
felt that realtors ought to be
