limits, and a peculiarly vicious
phase of this leeriness is the diffi-
culty encountered by the Univer-
city in attracting substantial men
to its faculties. Educators of abil-
ity and reputation-the type most
cryingly needed at present-have
homes for their families elsewhere'
which they could not afford in Ann
Arbor with the salaries that Michi-
gan can afford to offer.
Nor is it simply a question 01
bringing in new blood. Professors
who found homes in Ann Arbor 15!
years ago have watched their sal-
aries increase 150 per cent while'
their taxes have increased 500 per
cent. And now tha.t these homes
have become financial burdens, they
can not sell, for the market has all
but disappeared. Yet they must
watch the University-and possibly
the Greek-letter organizations -
take more property off the tax rolls
and increase their burdens propor-
tionately. It is not surprising that
those more firmly rooted in Ann
Arbor are being driven to a lower
standard of living, and those less
firmly rooted to other universities.
A way out must be found. The
city council must inaugurate the
most rigid possible economy and
appoint a commission of tax ex-
perts to discover how Ann Arbor
can return to a, tax rate that will
make her attractive to people
Iwhose financial status is that of a
faculty member or lower. Perhaps
a city-manager is the way out.
