EBLER DEPUTIES
ESTIGATION GRlOUP

Committee Will Act Upon Statistics
Furnished By Professor
of Sociology
MAYOR, CARRCOOPERATE
As a result of the investigation
into unemployment conditions in'
,Ann Arbor conducted by Prof. Lo-
well J. Carr's sociology classes last
semester, Mayor E. A. .taebler has
appointed a committee to act on
the results of the survey which{
showed an eight per cent, drop in,
employment during the winter
-months especially in the building
trades.
The newly-appointed committee,
consisting largely of building trade
and labor representatives, will at-
tempt to devise a method by which

labor may be kept employed and
the decrease in building construc-
tion eliminated during the winter
months.
In order to relieve the condition,
it is expected that labor will agree
to slightly lower wages, contractors
to less profit on construction, and
building material firms to lower
costs on necessary materials. If
such a plan is worked out, and the
cost of winter building reduced,
there will undoubtedly result less
reluctance on the part of the home
or office owner to build in winter.
Although similar conditions exist
in the majority of communities,
Ann Arbor is said to be the first to
undertake a survey and make an
effort to eliminate the winter un-
employment. Professor Carr be-
lieves this community conscious-
ness on the part of Ann Arbor to
be very noteworthy and indicative
of a desire for civic betterment.
Credit is due the students who
aided in gaining figures for the
survey, Professor Carr said.

Prof. Benjamin D. Meritt, associ-
ate professor of Latin and Greek;
from the American School for clas-
sical study at Athens, Greece, finds
the University a pleasant place.
"For one thing," said Professor
Meritt yesterday, "there are at+
Michigan resources for research
work in the classical field which are
unequalled by few other American
universities. But more than that,
I find here a congenial atmosphere
for study both among the facultyR
and the undergraduates."
For two years previous to coming1
here, Professor Meritt served as as-<
sistant director of the Athens
school. In connection with this
post, he was in complete charge of<
the 1927 archeological campaign at
Corinth, where a number of impor-
tant finds were excavated. Profes-
sor Merritt's undergraduate daysa
were spent at Hamilton College, N.r
Y., a. small school with an intense.
classical tradition. He obtained his1

B. A. and M. A. degrees there. He
also holds degrees of M. A. and Ph.
D. from Princeton.
Altogether Professor Meritt has
spent some four and a half years
of study in Greece, centered for the
most part at Athens and Nemea,{
where he has discovered a number
of important archeological facts
which he will incorporate in the
courses he is giving at the Univer-
sity.
"No comparison can be made be-
tween Michigan students and those
at the Athens school," Professor
Meritt reported, "because over there
most of them have their degrees or
are working for them, and their
work probes much deeper than any
attempted by undergraduates at
American universities. However, I
might say for the Michigan stu-
dents that they do not seem to be
less serious in their purpose than
the advanced students in Greece."
