Fisher Actinga
As Adviser In
Property Field
Assisting Government In
Real Property Inventory
In Middle-Sized Cities
Dr. Ernest M. Fisher, professor of
real estate management in the School
of Business Administration and well-
known authority in the field of hous-
ing, has been appointed as adviser
to the Bureau of Foreign and Do-
mestic Commerce in connection with
real property inventory of middle-
sized cities in the United States. Pro-
fessor Fisher received the appoint-
ment in December, and, although
continuing his teaching in the Uni-
versity, has traveled to Washington
week-ends to carry out his advisory
duties.
The real property inventory aims
at finding out the financial, rental,
and home buying situation in 65 cit-
ies in the country, and when the sur-
vey has been completed the govern-
ment will have exact knowledge of
the number of families and persons
living in each house, as well as the
equipment of the homes. From this
information there will be indicated
the potentialities of the real estate
market, slum conditions, and future
action on the part of the government
and interested private persons in the
field of housing.
The survey is being undertaken
with the support of the Civil Works
Administration, and Dr. Fisher esti-
mates that about 15,000 workers will
be employed to gather material.
The head of the Bureau of For-
eign and domestic Commerce is Dr.
Willard I. Thorp, formerly of the
University of Michigan faculty, and
his assistant is Dr. Nathanial H. En-
gle, who received his doctor's degree
here.
Losh Discusses
'Planet Mars On
University Hour
Habitability Of Planet Is
Doubted By Instructor;
It's 'Inhospitable'
The planet Mars probably causes
more discussion between layman and
astronomer than any other heavenly
body, Dr. Hazel M. Losh of the as-
tronomy department told a high
school audience during her discus-
sion of the astronomical series
broadcast over the University radio
hour yesterday.
"To many, the problem of the ha-
bitability of this over-discussed ce-
lestial body is the most important
and essential problem of the astro-
nomical science," Dr. Losh said, "and
curiously enough, the inhabitability
of Mars is almost always regarded
by the public as the problem of the
inhabitability of the whole universe.
Mars is so popular that people often
forget to ask whether -there may not
be other dwelling places in the heav-
ens."
Mars reflects 15 per cent of the
light it receives from the sun, and it
is a little more than one-half the
size of the earth, Dr. Losh stated.
Dr. Losh pointed out that the pos-
sibility or probability of life on the
planet depended upon an interpreta-
tion of life as we know it. "From the
evidence that the temperature is
lower, the atmosphere thinner, the
water vapor content much less than
in the case of the earth, we may

safely conclude that conditions on
Mars are inhospitable and less favor-
able to the existence of life on that
planet than on the Earth, although
at present the question may be re-
garded as unsettled," she said.

will autograph a picture with the
opening notes of it. But there are
times, he confesses, when being sc
labelled with this world-popular piece

A story is told of how Rachmani-
noff and Paderewski once entered a
cafe on the Riviera. Immediately on
the arrival of the two great pianists,
the orchestra ceased playing. The
leader rapped brightly and swung hia
men into the chords of the C-sharp
Minor Prelude.
Paderewski grinned his delight at
his partner's discomfiture, and at the
close applauded the embarrassed
composer long and loudly across the
table, so that anyone who had not
been aware of his presence before

(By Intercollegiate Press)
SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 16. - A
proposed New Year's Eve student
body dance at the University of Utah'
caused a lot more trouble than any-
body thought it could. The Utah
Chronicle explained the situation as
follows:
"President Thomas, not realizing
the provisions of the city ordinance
(against dancing on Sunday), pre-
sented the proposal to the Board of
Regents. The general sentiment of
the board was that no dance what-
soever should be held. However, at
President Thomas' suggestion. the
board gave permission ,for a dance,
the President agreeing to shoulder
the responsibility."
In consultation with the president,
student leaders agreed that a digni-
fied Sunday evening gathering should
be held, with dancing to start at mid-,
night, continuing into the Monday
morning hours. But, the university
officials took exception to the man-
ner in which the student leaders ad-
vertised the affair, holding that they
gave the impression the entire affair,
Sunday night as well as Monday
morning, was to be a hilarious affair.
They called off the dance.
Two students then made arrange-
ments for a dance in a downtown
dance hall, which was held, though
not under the auspices of the student
council.
Salt Lake City was somewhat scan-
dalized by the incident. The Chron-
icle sided with the university officials
in condemning the students who put
on the dance.

in journalism as well as in philosophy
and the public welfare will be pro-
moted, in time, as much as it has
been promoted by research in the so-
cial sciences, in pure science and in
medicine in recent years.
"The philosophy of journalism is a
continuous search for knowledge of
the truth in a life of action.
"In journalism today there is an
irresistable urge to meet changing
conditions of the day with change,
but one of the needs of tomorrow is
research - research in all of the rela-
tionships between the newspaper and
the social order.
"Annually vast sums are pumped
into the arteries of physics, govern-
ment, medicine, social science, chem-
istry, electricity, philosophy, radio,
economics, sociology, religion, history
and other fields of inquiry; in the
aggregate many millions of dollars
are appropriated each year by edu-
cational and philanthropic founda-
tions, while practically nothing is
spent in research in journalism."
Alumni Clubs Hosts
To Tappin On Trip
T. Hawley Tapping, general secre-
tary of the Alumni Association, re-
turned to Ann Arbor Monday from
a trip during which he attended
meetings of University of Michigan
Clubs in three cities of the fifth dis-
trict. He left here Tuesday, Jan. 9.
Mr. Tapping was present at a ban-
quet given by the South Bend alumni
at which both he and Head Football
Coach Harry Kipke spoke briefly. He
also attended a luncheon given by
the University of Michigan Club of
Indianapolis at the Lincoln Hotel. At
the ensuing business meeting, Albert
Wohlgemuth, '11, was elected presi-
dent.
At the fifth district meeting of the
American Alumni Council Mr. Tap-
ping led a discussion on "Editorial
Problems."
There is no compromise in this
battle. It is to the death -- either to
the money changers or to our free-
dom. - Father Coughlin.

John Bull And
Ucl Sam Set
For Dollar War-
Bht Two Great Nations
May Remain I IFrends;
Equalizing Funds Ready
NEW YORK, Jan. 16. - (AP)-With
dollars and pounds as pawns, and
prosperity the stakes, Uncle Sam and
John Bull are preparing for an ex-
traordinary contest in finance - but
' whether they will play as partners
or opponents remains to be seen.
The United States is preparing to
duplicate the huge British equaliza-
tion fund, for which Parliament has
appropriated funds approximating
close to $1,900,000,000 at the current
rate of exchange. President Roose-
velt, in his message to Congress Mon-
day, proposed creation of a $2,000,-
000,000 fund, to control the value of
the dollar in relation to the British
pound sterling, and also, if necessary,
to steady the market for United
States Government bonds.
Inflationists in this country want
to see the dollar decline in relation
to the pound. The committee for
the Nation has suggested a rate for
the dollar as low as $7 to the pound.
Recent rates have been between $5
and $5.50.
London was happy when, a year
ago, the pound was around f$3.35,
and it was felt in international bank-
ing circles at that time that about
the highest the pound could be stab-
ilized would be $3.50. At the start of
the economic conference last June,
it was understood the British could
not endure a higher level than $3.80,
although they later agreed to a ten-
tative stabilization around $4.20.
What the financial world now
waits to see is whether the two giant
financial powers will compromise
upon a rate at which to stabilize
their currencies, perhaps somewhere
within striking distance of the old
parity of $4.86 5-8, or whether the
two giant funds will engage in a
contest for advantage.
So far as can be learned in sources
close to the Federal Reserve Bank,
its relations with the Bank of Eng-
land are most amiable, and some fi-
nancial quarters believe that if a
compromise could be reached, the
two funds might indeed co-operate to
restore world monetary stability.

Enthusiasm Greets
Organization Plan
Of M Club Alu "ni
Con sidrable enthusiasm has been
manifested in the attempted reor-
ganization of the University of
Michigan Club of Manila by Philip-
pine Islands alumni with more than
75 taking an active part, according
to a communication received from
Morton I. Netzorg, '10, secretary of
the club, by T. Hawley Tapping,
general secretary of the Alumni As-
sociation.
Mr. Netzorg reported that the De-
cember meeting of the club was held
in the palace of Gov.-Gen. Frank
Murphy, '14L, where a buffet lunch-
eon was served. The gathering was
planned by a committee of Michigan
graduates on the staff of the gov-
ernor-general, including E 1 e a n o r
Bumgardner, '26, Norman Hill, '10,
and Edward G. Kemp, '14L.
The letter says the "true Michigan
spirit showed itself when a free meal
was in sight, and it is reported that
the fish in the Pasig River (which
flows past Malacanan palace) com-
plained at the paucity of pickings."
Following the luncheon, the mem-
bers sang Michigan songs and saw
films of the University campus
brought from Ann Arbor for the
meeting.
The whole purpose of education-
the only purpose in the final analysis
-is to train for social participation.
