discriminates against a bank's loy-
al customers by reducing the pro-
portion of liquid or choice assets
behind their deposits."

Economic planning might mater-
ially modify the institutions of
money, price, and property, said
Prof. Morris A. Copeland of the
Economics department, in a paper
read yesterday before the-Econom-
ics Division of the Michigan Aca-
demy of Science, Arts, and Letters.
The opinions advanced by Pro-
fessor Copeland suggested more
radical revisions of the economic
system than those expressed by
rof. I. L. Sharfman when the lat-
ter addressed the Economics club
Monday night.
} "There is no prospect," Professor
Copeland added, "that we shall
shortly achieve a planned economy
im any comprehensive sense, if
indeed we ever do. If we do, it will
be by a process of piecemeal modi-
gication of existing institutions.
"Economic planning," said Pro-
fessor Copeland, "means vastly
more than that a number of groups
qf busines leaders, each group con-
derned -about its own common hi-
tierests, shall get together to 'ra-
t ionalize' their industries. It means
very much less than a general
4bolition of such current institu-
toions as private property, money
and prices, competition and free-
dom of contract, in favor of a
diction of economic activity by a
central general management.
"A planned economy would neces-
sarily rely heavily on the bulk of
existing arrangements as a fulcrum.
However, we cannot plan our eco-

degree the character of these insti-

Albion Arachnologist
Collect. 7 Spiders
Colecting spiders is more than a
hobby with A. M. Chickering, ar-
achnologist in the zoology depart-
ment at Albion college, who spoke
yesterday before the zoology section
of the Michigan Academy.
For the past four years Mr.
Chickering has built up a collection
of 175 specimens of arachnida re-
presentative of the members of this
family to be found in Michigan,
while during last summer he dis-
covered a total of 71 different
species at the Douglas lake Univer-
sity zoology station alone.
According to Mr. Chickering the
term arachnida applies not only to
spiders, but to the tarantulas and
scorpions as well.
