THREE NIGHTS' OBSERVANCE:
Perrow Describes Dance Hall Study
By BARBARA LAZARUS
"Taxi dancing in Detroit is not
a big business, but in a depressed
area, even a total gross of $280,000
a year is important," Prof. Charles
Perrow of the sociology depart-
ment recently reported.
Completing a study of "Taxi
Dance Halls in Detroit;" Prof. Per-
row studied the characteristics of
the hostesses and patrons, forms
of social control and their effec-
tiveness, and the function of the
halls. The study covered a brief
period of three nights of ob-
servation from 8 p.m.-3 a.m.
A taxi dance hall provides an
opportunity for male customers to
dance with women retained by the
hall. Each customer buys a num-
ber of tickets at the door, costing
12 cents each and allowing him to
dance one minute per ticket with
any woman he chooses.
Prof. Perrow estimated that the
closing of the halls would with-
draw a great deal of money from
circulation, resulting in rent loss
of $9000-$10,000 per year. Further-
more, supplies would not be pur-
chased in the local area, which
needs stable 'business. State wel-
fare rolls might also rise, since
most of the women support young
children, and some of the women
would qualify for these services.
"It is hard to see how the halls
contribute to the decline of the
neighborhood. The neighborhood
has had much the same character
for many years, and the halls have
been there for almost three dec-
ades," the study stated.
The stereotype of an "immoral"
woman working in the hall does
not hold true in Detroit. "The rec-
ords of 124 currently employed
women revealed that only 19 per
cent were single; the largest group
of 39 per cent were presently mar-
The report also indicated that
"the girls are, with few exceptions,
dressed in decent taste - some-
times in remarkably good taste -
and are not excessively made-up."
The women are articulate in their
conversation, more intelligent than
the patrons and skilled in "the
art of pleasant conversation."
For many of the women this
type of employment is the only
kind they can secure which does
not require formal training, citi-
zenship, inflexible working hours
and daily attendance, Prof. Per-
The largest part of the patrons
are "probably salesmen and small
businessmen; -there are also many
workers and a few professionals.
Most appear to be residents of
Detroit, but many are visiting on
business matters, or else they're
traveling salesmen or attending
The report indicated that most
of the customers were primarily
interested in social .rather than

Sterling from $2.95
Gold filled from $4.95
at no extra charge
sexual contact with the women.
"The type of work they are
engaged in make the women more
vulnerable to sexual exploitation
than, say, a secretary in an office;
but we have no evidence, despite
energetic attempts to uncover it,
that in the well-run establishments
there is enough of this to con-
stitute a threat to public moral-
ity," the-report stated.
The report, however, was critical
of one establishment which lacked
proper supervision of the women.
Commenting on the function of
the halls, the report said that it
provides an opportunity for wo-
men needing a second job to sup-
plement their income through a
job, permitting great flexibility
and rewarding social skills.
Taxi dance halls also permit
lonely visitors or residents an op-
portunity for a regulated, legiti-
mate social contact. "For many
people in the city, commerc'al
entertainment is the only way to
pass long and lengthening hours
of leisure. The taxi dance hall is
one such resource.
"It is a reasonably healthy one
for many men with otherwise im-
poverished lives," Prof. Perrow
"There are obvious and visible
sources of vice and neighborhood
deterioration in Detroit to which
municipal government can devote
its legislative and police resources.
More harm than good might be
done by eliminating well-run taxi
dance halls," he concluded.
Prof. Don E. Francks of the
pharmacy college, director of
pharmacy services at University
Hospital, will become the director
of the scientific services depart-
ment of the American Society of
Hospital Pharmacists in Washing-,
