For Comipariso With Others Of
Mxanufat urers all over Michigan
have just receivedl the third monthly
report onl labor turnovers in Michigan,
~mpiled and analyzed by the Bureau
of Bisiness' Research of the Univer-
Two imortant facts were uncov-
ered by the Bureau of Business Re-
search which are of utmost impor-
tance to industries all over the state.
The report states: The separationJ
rates for companies employing less
than 500 people are approximately
one half as high as the rates for com-
panies wuith ofver 500 employees. If a
comrpany is a smaller firm in an in-
dustry where large firms are the rule
t1e rates should be lower than the
average for the inustry. Also it was
reporte(d that the separation rates for
companies in small towns-unde' 30,-
000-ai'e abo t gone half as high as the
rats iiIlafg~cr centers. If a company
is located in a small town, its rates
shouldl be correspondingly low.
These figures as comiled and an-
a lyzed by t he Burau of Business Re-
sarchi are of a vital importance to
the manfactuers who can thus see
hor owhen lo usiness compares with
others in t he same industry. Separa-

State Comies To1 Aid Of University As
F in ids ('ol'ctedl Fi'onuiBitioni
Fees Are Exhausted
SECOND SUM TO FOLLOW
Txvo hundred thousand dollars were
receivedl by the Treasurer of the thi-
versity from the State last Truesday,
just in time to m(ect.thle December p~ay-
Tphe inoney, which' is the first the
University h as received from the
state since last JTune, was obtained ont
a requisit ion of $462,000 from the mill
tax. The audlitor general, 0. 1B. Ful-'
lcr, has promised to send the remain-
ing $262,000 covered. by t he requis-
ition by Dec. 1 >.
Const ernat ion reignedl in the admiin-s
istrative of ees of the University early
in the week, with the realization of
the fact that the million dlollars col-
lected from tuition fees had all been
spent and that funds to meet the pay-
roll were lacking. The payroll usually
runs between $480,000 amnd $500,000
and cost of supplies is about $200,000
per month. Approximately $420,000
remainedl in the general fund at Lan-
sing but since there were warrants
outstanding against this amounting to
$435,000, the auditor general could notl
pay it out.
16ee great relief was felt among
University officials when the state ad-
ministrative board, on Monday, au-
thorized the governor and the state
treasurer to borrow $250,000 to aid
the University in meeting its payroll.
'However since the state treasurer has
more than $200,000 of state funds at
the present t imc, a loan may not be
niecessary. On Tuesday morning a.
man from the Treasurer's office was
sent to Lansing and in the afternoon
he returned with the funds to tide
the University over the crisis. Checks
were distributed yesterday.
Of the money on hand in the state
treasury, $1l,600,000 is primary school
money, which is held up p~ending a de-
cision of the Supreme Court regarding
the constitutionality of a law passed
by the 1927 legislature extending aid
to the poorer school districts of the
ANTI OCH COLLEGE VOTES
ON 1FOOTBALL ABOLITION
Antioch college, which has a dif-
ferent batch of students every ten
weeks, is voting in sections on the
proposition to abolish football as a
college sport. Sectican B, the fall see-
tion, voted overwhelmingly in favor
of retaining the sport. The other. see-
tions will vote as they. return for
one and a half times as large as North
America, covered with a vast area of
ice of such nature as to permit land-
ing of an aeroplane. A landing will
probably be attempted by Byrd at the
South Pole. The South Pole is at an
elevation of 10,000 feet, as contr'asted
I xith the North Pole which is at sea
'level, which means that Byrd cannot
fly at any convenient altitude as lie
could in the North polar flight. Furth-
er' moire there are nuor'therly xwindls pie-
I vailing which average 50 miles per'1
hour. These the plane will have to
b)uck, and the navigator xwill have to
use tconstaixitly the wind-drift indicator
to) check his position.
