The Institute
Of Human Adjustment.. ..
struction of human life in future
wars is progressing with terrifying apidity in all
parts of the world today, here in Ann Arbor an
outstanding institution for saving life and for re-
habilitating individuals is progressing with grat-
ifying thoroughness.
Since its founding last year The Institute
of Human Adjustment has attracted world-wide
attention as the most unique and significant or-
ganization of its kind. Prof. John H. Muyskens
heads the organization and is largely responsible
for its creation as a part of the Horace H.
Rackham School of Graduate Studies.
The Institute is designed "to discover means
of applying the findings of science to those prob-
lems of human imbalance related to its fields
of research." At present its work is primarily
in the field of individual fractional development
resulting from speech and hearing difficulties.
The major portion of the work is research with
a view toward permanent service to society. The
individual is likewise benefitted as well as the
waves of oncoming generations.
Coupled with the conception of correction of
fractional adjustment of the individual is the
idea of preventative knowledge to forestall the
repeated recurrence of fractional adjustment. It
is as much toward the training of experts in pre-
ventative work as the training of experts in cor-
rection that the research is directed.
Much of the value of the Institute's work comes
from its close cooperation with other depart-
ments of the University. Such departments as
psychology, speech, music, chemistry and the
schools of dentistry and medicine are assisting
the Institute in research projects.
For the first time anywhere the psychology
department is working in a joint effort in the
measurement of the kinds and nature of the in-
dividual fractional development to aid in the
eventual complete integration of the individual.
Research to determine the occurrence and fre-
quency of fractional development, the differen-
tiation in muscular adjustment, the relation of
the sucking muscles to speech. the physiological
condition that causes the vibrato, the voice of the
singer and its relation to speech are among the
projects already begun.
Of especial value is the work being done by
the dental school in correcting cleft palates and
obstructions to speech caused by faulty oc-
clusions and improper growth.

The work of the Institute is not limited to the
laboratory at 1007 Huron St., but extends
throughout the state. Already numerous public
schools are cooperating. Children are being ex-
amined by physicians, dentists, psychologists and
fractional development experts from the Insti-
tute. Thorough examinations have been made of
100 children in Redford, 60 in Plymouth and
25 in Remus as part of research projects and the
assistance the Institute is rendering the state.

In Re 'The Spanish Situation'
To the Editor:
On Nov. 7 the Daily published an editorial
on "The Spanish Situation" containing several
statements to which exception might well be
taken. However, at this time, it will suffice to
point out one or two inaccuracies. The editorial
reads in part as follows: "Several months ago
a statement given out by the Vatican declared
that 11 bishops and 17,500 priests and nuns had
been executed by the Government. Another ac-
cusation of the same nature was contained in
the now-famous 'pastoral letter' of the rebel
bishops at the end of August, but in this docu-
ment the number was quoted as only 6,000 priests
and nuns . . . Significantly also, no mention was
made in the letter of the 17 bishops supposed to
have been slaughtered in their dioceses."
Obviously the purpose in thus contrasting the
figures in the two statements is to discredit that
of the Vatican.
Now the pertinent passage in the Bishop's
letter runs as follows: "The murdered priests .. .
will sum up, of the secular clergy alone, about
6,000." (Joint Letter of the Spanish Bishops-
English Translation, 1937, The American Press,
New York, p. 14). It should be noted that nuns
are not included in this total, whereas in that
given out by the Vatican they are. Further, it
should be noted that the Vatican total includes
priests without any distinction, whereas that
in the Bishops' letter includes members of the
secular clergy only and not members of the
regular clergy i.e. .those who observe a common
rule (regula) of life, according to the Order of
Congregation or Society to which they belong,
such as the Benedictines, Dominicans, Francis- .
cans, Jesuits, etc. Thus the difference between
the two sets of figures might be accounted for.
As to the "bishops supposed to have been
slaughtered in their dioceses," mention is made
of them in the letter, thus: "the ten bishops .. .
who died forgiving them" (i.e. "all those who .. .
have done the gravest damage to the Church
and to their country.") (p. 25)

Are They 'Pensioners'?
To the Editor :
In the interest of properly informed public
opinion it is important to answer certain allega-
tions recently made by officials of the University
Buildings and Grounds Department. These offi-
cials have maintained in essence that a good ma-
jority of the men in their department have, "out-
lived their usefulness." They have dubbed these
employees "pensioners."
The tactic used by thpese officials is obvious
even on superficial inspection. They are raising
this cry to dodge and camouflage the real issues.
After many years of efficient, loyal service the
needs of the men who clean and maintain the
buildings are dismissed summarily with the
charge that they have outlived their usefulness.
Is this the regard of gratitude bestowed for years
of worthy service?
The real issues involved are inadequate sick
leave and vacations, substituting of favoritism
for seniority, and a sub-standard living wage.
The enthusiasm and determination which have
greeted the organization of the custodians under
the banner of the CIO is testimony to the need
for the correction of these abuses.
Enlightened administrative policy dictates that
governmental officials shall meet and negotiate
with their employees to insure a reasonably sat-
isfied staff and efficient public service. The
State, County and Municipal Workers of America
commends such liberal and far-sighted policies.
Such methods insure smoothly functioning public
agencies and contented government employees.
Although labor in industry is frequently forced to
fight for access to the council room, labor in gov-
ernment expects the council room to be an
established institution where the representatives
of the employing public and the designated rep-
resentatives of its employees will partake of the

fare of the council table. Only the intrusion of
Girdlerism into the government service, barring
the council room door, will make it necessary for
the government employee to cast about for ways
to force that door open.
President Roosevelt himself has strongly en-
dorsed unionization of public employees. In a
news release on September 6, 1937, he said, "The
desire of government employees for fair and
adequate pay, reasonable hours of work, safe and
suitable working conditions, development of op-
portunities for advancement, facilities for fair
and impartial consideration and review of griev-
ances, and other objectives of a proper employee
relations policy, is basically no different from
that of employees in private industry. Organiza-
tion on their part to present their views on such
matters is both natural and logical."
The problems of the custodians-such as the
complete absence of sick-leave, abuse of seniority
privileges, and insufficient salaries to maintain
their families in decency and health-will not be
solved by tossing brick-bats and epithets in the
press. Nor will they be solved by dismissing the
matter ostrich-like and labelling employees "pen-
sioners." Most of these men still have a good
number of fruitful and productive years of serv-
ice to contribute. The State, County and Muni-
cipal Workers of America will spare no trouble
or expense in the effort to establish fair and
equitable conditions of labor, and a harmonious
working relationship between these men and
their departmental heads.

State, County and Municipal Workers

Jfeemr of
H-eywood Broun
During the Thanksgiving recess I came into
brief contact with a young relative of mine who
is a sophomore at one of the minor Quaker col-
leges near Philadelphia. I believe their football
slogan is "Beat Elder's Ridge Normal School for
Defective Children."
This year, I understand, my friend's potential
alma mater failed in its objective, and so I
expected to, find him sunk in
that pessimism which has so
long been associated with the
younger generation. Indeed,
I found him chipper and un-
It is dangerous to general-
ize when one uses a member
of his own kith as the experi-
mental guinea pig, but I have
made a few outside re-
searches in larger educational institutions, such
as Yale and Princeton, and two weeks ago I met
a Vassar freshman at a conference of American
labor leaders.
It is my impression that the younger genera-
tion is not what it used to be but infinitely better.
In foreign lands the students often are the most
active force in all political fermentation. That
is not true here as yet, but the undergraduate
practice of sitting out each social change is
rapidly diminishing.
By now I have seen a good many younger
generations come and go. We neither knew nor
gave much of a damn what went on outside the
border of the Ivy League. If there had been a
CIO in 1900 we probably would have assumed
that it was the traditional rival of V.M.I. and let
it go at that.

Not Much For The Betterr
The coming of the war changed out the under-
graduate roster from colonel to drummer boy,
but not much for the better. This was a more
way-wise generation, but it fell into the depths
of cynicism and despair. Scott Fitzgerald was
perhaps the most articulate and eloquent spokes-
man for the young pessimists.
Just the other day I was looking over his extra-
ordinary undergraduate novel, "This Side of
Paradise." and found:
"Here was a new generation, shouting the old
cries, learning the old creeds through a reverie of
long days and nights; destined finally to go out
into that dirty, gray turmoil to follow love and
pride; a new generation dedicated more than the
last to the fear of poverty and the worship of
success; grow up to find all gods dead, all wars
fought, all faiths in man shaken . . ."
Not The Mood Of Today
That is not the mood of the young men and
women of today. If all the sad young men of
Scott Fitzgerald's day were destined to go out I
into a gray turmoil, the outlook of the moment
is hardly brighter. But the undergraduate of
today, as I have seen him, is going to win and
not lose or draw.
Nor is he thinking of the coming struggle as a
purely individual effort. To a greater extent
than ever before he is willing and eager to throw
in his lot with his fellows. He and his team-
mates have no intention of punting on the first
down. If this younger generation finds itself
backed against its own goal line, it will have the
courage and the audacity to throw a forward
pass. And a long one at that!
Its faith in mankind isn't shaken. It has just
begun to fight. The secondaries of an inept
civilization hold no terrors. To these eager
recruits the safety man of tradition is a pushover.
You can hear the cheering section shout, "We
want a touchdown!" and I'll lay ten to one
they get it.'
