Michigan's mill tax and the gen-
erosity of certain alumni are the
two things that have made the
University possible,-Dr. Frank Rob-
bins, assistant to the president,
stated yesterday in this week's issue
of the "Alumnus." Dr. Robbins said
that it was only through these two
mediums that the University has
been able to keep up with the ever-
increasing demand for educational
Involves Many People.
"The people involvedmake a long
list, with many famous names
arnoyg them, and others not indi-
vidually famous, but to whom, for
courage, foresight, and ideals, the
state of Michigan should be eter-
nall'y grateful," Robbins said. "There
were Richard, Montieth, Governor
Mason, and others of the patriarchs
who first caught the University
idea. John D. Pierce and those of
his generation who carried it fur-
ther; the great administrators-
Tappan, Angell, Burton-who, guid-
ed and moulded the institution;
Williams, White, Adams, Wenley,
Van Tyne and the other g r e a t
teachers of the past and the pres-
ent faculties, who have embodied
the university idea; and the gover-
nors, legislators, members of the
constitutional conventions, and pri-
vate citizens who have said that
Michigan should have a university
and for one hundred and 14 years
have cherished their creation."
Points to Necessity.
"The Mill tax law is the back
bone of the University's structure,"
Dr. Robbins concluded. "While it is
the law of the state, the University
is assured of a stable existence; it
can make plans and policies ap d
expect to carry them out; it candt
engaige teachers of ability and
standing; and it is not a political
football. Without it, there isino
hope that the University of Michi-
gan could retain a respected posi-
tion among the universities of
Dr.. Robbins' special chart show-
ing the way in which the dollar is
divided indicates that 52 cents of
each 100 comes from this Mill tax
and other state appropriations.
