Social Security
Faces Changes,
Haber Believes
Says Congress Will Never
Repeal Act, But Thinks
States WillModify It
The Social Security Act will be the
most amended and most amendable
act in the history of Congress, Prof.
William Haber of the economics de-
partment predicted at Sunday's Un-
ion Forum.
"Although every legislature with-
in the next 25 years will spend days
changing the act, no session of Con-
gress will repeal it, he declared.
"It is one of the most significant
acts of Congress," he began, "since
it involves more money than we've
ever heard of, since it takes care of
more people than the government had
ever taken care of before, and since it
requires such complex administrative
handling."
Once Individual Problem
Until 1900, he said, security was
mainly an individual problem, the
nation took care of itself by saving;
from 1900 to 1930, the problem be-
came industrial with the rise of
workmen's compensation laws. From
1930, it turned social, and both in-
dividuals and industry are unable to
take care of the public alone.
"American economic society is los-
ing much of its former flexibility and
the forces of "institutional friction"
are increasing daily. Technological
problems become real, economic in-
security of job, of industrial status,
of economic independence 'become
therefore social and economic rather
than individual and personal prob-
lems.
Too Many Risks
"If statistician's figures are cor-
rect, public costs for relief will soon
become terrific. We ought to ex-
periment with the insurance act and
possibly include public relief.
"The common scare that the act
would destroy the incentive to work is
nonsense since it would, at best, pro-
vide only 50 per cent of income for a
brief period of time. That the act
would cost too much presumes that
security costs nothing now. We are
really paying for sickness directly or
indirectly."
He answered the objection that it
involves too many variable risks by
citing the beginning of commercial
insurance.
"We don't know much about it un-
til we work it out. It is only by trial
and error that we can recognize the
risks we will take." a

stein, '39, president of the Student
Alliance said yesterday.

MUSIC
(Continued from Page 4)
return to Ann Arbor, and whether or
not the Little Symphony will' be re-
established, is not known. For the
sake of a rounder and fuller musical
diet in this town such a thing is much
to be desired. Because of its size a
little symphony offers advantages
not to be found in larger orchestras.
For one thing, it possessess a vast
and fertile literature, especially from
the Classic period, which is either
not touched or else mishandled by
regular sized orchestras. With a
smaller, more select group a perfec-
tion of detail and ensemble is pos-
sible that is unattainable with a
large group. And it is of no little im-
aortance that a group of 15 has six
imes the mobility and adaptability
)f a group of 90, making orchestral
'ergformances financially and physi-
ally possible ni places where an or-
hestra would otherwise be unheard.

aiss States Hitler Has Made
Many German Improvements

1

Derogatory accounts of the Nazi
government of Germany do not pre-l
sent the whole picture, because the
Nazis have also accomplished some
highly beneficial results as far as
the welfare of the Germany people
themselves is concerned, in the opin-
ion of Prof. -Aloysius J. Gaiss of the
German department.
"It must be admitted," Professor'
Gaiss said, "that Hitler has succeeded
in bringing about a renaissance of
national pride and order. A burst of
activity, industrial, commercial and
even athletic, has characterized the
nation under. the Nazi regime. One
has the feeling that every activity is
being conducted on a systematically
planned basis."
Professor Gaiss then illustrated this
point with the "Reichsautobahn," the
modern highways which are begin-
ning to form a vast net-work over
the whole country. "These roads,"
he said, "seem to even outdo our own
highways for perfection of traffic ac-
commodation. For example every
tenth of a dilometer there is a sign
with the exact distance to the nearest
town in either direction, every three-
fifths of a kilometer there is a ce-
ment bridge for pedestrians, there
are four lanes of traffic with a boule-
vard of grass in the center. There
are neither police nor signal lights."

"For their athletic development,"
Professor Gaiss continued, "the Ger-
mans have constructed huge gymna-
siums in every city and town and
the government requires that every
industrial plant give its employees
one hour every afternoon for calis-
thenics and other forms of physical
execrise. In this way prospective
olympic material is being discovered."
"A good example of Nazi efficiency
was afforded by the Olympic Games
this summer," Professor Gaiss said.
"Within a 75-mile radius of Berlin,
there were established at periodical
intervals temporary Red Cross hos-
pitals fully staffed and equipped to
facilitate speedy medical attention to
the highway casualties which natur-
ally resulted from the thousands and
thousands of motorists flocking to
the games. In addition," he added,
"there was a special body of police
detailed to stand at important in-
tersections to give information and
directions to the tourists."

WHY PAY FOR DELIVERY CHARGES ALONE to express
your laundry home when it costs only a few cents more
on our NEW ROUGH DRY students' bundle, called for and de-

livered free in Ann Arbor.

Someone

in your family is paying

76c (the minimum charge for five pounds via Express) for the
shipping of your laundry to and from Ann Arbor and then goes
through the trouble of sending it to a laundry at home or has
that extra amount to wash herself. Why not spare yourself this
added trouble and expense by making arrangements with one
of the four laundries listed below.
