To Reed'Yardstick'
Governor Expected
To Pass Measure
Ruthven Lauds Action As
Confirmation Of State's
Faith In Education
LANSING, May 17. - (/P) - The
Reed "yardstick" bill under which the
University of Michigan will be able
to receive a greater appropriation
from the general fund than had been
recommended by the House Ways and
Means Committee was adopted in the
Legislature today.
The bill provides for the measuring
of the University appropriation on a
mill tax basis. The measure, which
is expected to be signed by the Gov-
ernor, would give the University an
appropriation of $4,062,365.
A bill previously drawn which would
give the University a lesser amount
was tabled. Similar provisions are
included for Michigan State College.
President Alexander G. Ruthven
last night issued the following state-
"The citizens of the State and edu-
cators generally will be interested to
learn that Michigan has once more
confirmed its faith in higher educa-
tion by constructive legislation.
"It was entirely logical that the
old mill tax should be repealed in
view of the trends in taxation. In
this crisis instead of adopting the
easy but hazardous method of direct
appropriation, the Legislature studied
the problem with care and provided
in Senate Bill 160 for a mill tax
based upon the assessed valuation of'
property but with the money coming
from the general fund.
"Thus at one stroke the representa-
tives of the people preserved the fea-
tures of the mill tax adopted more
than 60 years ago, which have been
very largely responsible for the devel-
opment of the institution, avoided
such unwise methods as ear-marked
taxes and biennial appropriations,
and gave to the institution a desir-
able feeling of security which will be
very helpful in this trying period.
"The members of the Legislature
and the state administration deserve
the praise and gratitude of the citi-
zens of Michigan for the careful at-
tention and whole-hearted support
which they have given to this, the
most important legislation enacted in
the field of higher education since
the passage of the original mill tax

Board in Control of Student Publica-
tions May 6, was announced yester-
day following appointments for the

its members will "ordinarily be stu-
dents having fourth year standing,

LAFAYETTE, Ind., May 17.-(Spe-

aided by a defeat of Chicago, Big Ten
leaders, stayed in the title race today,
defeating the Purdue nine, 6 to 1, de-
spite the fact that they were outhit,'
10 to 6. Chicago lost to Indiana at

Art Patchin went all the way for
the Wolverines, keeping the Boiler-

them scoreless until the eighth inning
when Cliff Baumbach tripled with

a victory for Bob Elrod, Purdue hurler,

The managing editor, according to
the newly-enacted system, will ap-

ment, "and the several departments
shall be under the general direction

To Spread The Work
The object of the department phase
of the plan, as intended by the Board
in Control, is to lessen the amount
of work on individual members of the
staff. Assistants are to be appointed
"so far as practicable" among lower
classmen "as a means for spreading
the labor and responsibility and
broadening the experience of the
members of the staff."
Salaries of the managing editor
and associate editors for the year
1935-36 are set by the plan at $400
