EMPLOYMENT _SURlVEY
*Cmuiittee Selects Sociology Classes
TO Conduct Investigation Of
Local Unemployment
LINTON HEADSZOMMIlTE
A special group of students will be-
gin work early next week on an un-
employment survey of Ann Arbor in
order to determine the seriousness of
the .local unemployment situation un-
der the direction of a committee ap-
pointed by Mayor Edward W. Staebler.
The committee, which is headed by
E. E. Linton, an official of the Michi-
gan Federation of Labor, and which
includes Dean Clare E. Griffin of the
School of Business Administration,
Professors Carter Goodrich of the Ec-
ononmics department and Lowell J.
Carr of the Sociology department, was
selected about a month ago by Mayor
Staebler to work out plans for an in-
vestigation.
The plan, as determined on by the
committee, provides for a preiminary
investigation to be carried onby mem-
bers of Professor Carr's class in
modern social problems. Approxi-
mately thirty students volunteered to
undertake the survey, according to
Professor Carr, and will receive field
work credit for their work.
The main objective of the survey is
to determine whether or not the un-
employment situation in Ann Arbor is
serious enough to warrant a compre-
hensive investigation with a view to-
ward remedying the problem. In the
event that the committee arrives at
such a conclusion, it is probably that
the City Council will be asked to ap-
propriate funds for a thorough study
of existing conditions.
The students, in the present investi-
gations, will mainly visit the factor-
ies and construction jobs. It is ex-
pected that the employers and labor
unions will cooperate to the fullest
extent with the students in their en-
deavor to obtain as large a number
of unemployment histories as possi-
ble, according to Professor Carr. The
administration authorities will be ask-
ed to allow four or five of the stu-
dents temporary permits to drive au-
tomobiles to facilitate the investiga-
tors' work.
Other members of Mayor Staebler's
specia committee include C. W. Light-
hall, General Manager of the Hoover
Steel Ball Co., and O. O. MacLeisch,
secretary of the local Chamber of
Commerce.
Mayor Staebler's decision to pro-
mote the survey was prompted by
many inquiries and comments about
the seriousness of Ann Arbor's unem-.
ployment situation, and it is expected
the results of the present survey will
definitely determine the true state of
affairs-
FEAR UNIFORMITY
OF ARCHITECTURE
Standardization of design threat-
ens the nations architecture, accord-
ing to report of the board of direct-
ors of the American Institute of Archi-
.tect of which Prof. Emil Lorch of the
School of Architecture is a member.
This report, submitted to the sixty-
first annual convention at St. Louis
where Professor Lorch is in attend-
ance, expressed fear that design may
become "ordinary humdrum and non-
descript," reducing communities all
over the United States to a common
standard.
"Local characteristics," the report
said, "are fast appearing in this era
of common thought and mechanical
advancement. Communities are com-
ing to look more and more like peas

in one pod, and a certain commercial-
ism is making more and more evident
in the type of architecture universal-
ly employed throughout the country."
