Professor Gault
Sees New Era
Price-Fixing Legislation
Is Declared Beneficial
To Movement's Growth
The principles of legislative price-
fixing which have been introduced in-
to business give consumers' coopera-
tives a greater opportunity than they
have ever had before, Prof. Edgar H.
Gault of the business administration
school said last night in the last
lecture of the course on "Contemp-
orary Problems and the Cooperative'
Movement" sponsored by the Exten-
sion Service.
The new era began, Professor Gault
stated, with the NRA and codes of fair
competition among retailers. With the
abolition of the NRA, fair trade legis-
lation was adapted in 44 states, legal-
izing the price-fixing of trade-marked
merchandise. Such legislation, and
the subsequent restriction of com-
petition, Professor Gault believes,
should give an impetus to the co-
operative movement, whose chief value
lies in defeating controlled competi-
Another factor which would hasten
the growth of cooperatives, Profes-
sor Gault predicts, is the extension
service tp consumers in higher incom
levels. American cooperatives have'
overlooked this opportunity, he ob-
served, and have allowed independ-
ent retailers selling to the middle-
class to maintain profit margins as
high as 50 per cent.
Overemphasis on the sale of food,
Professor Gault warned, is an im-
portant weakness the American co-'
operatives must overcome if they are
to take advantage of their opportun-
ity. Because of chain stores, and es-
peciakly chain super-markets, most
people in higher income groups do
not find the savings from food pur-
chases sufficiently attractive'to cause
them to patronize cooperatives.

Engineers succeed because they are

tific manner, he declared.
Speaking on the topic of "Re-
search," Boyd advised a student audi-
ence to "learn research methods, and
to stick to them whatever occupa-
tion you take up."
These broad methods of research
can be extended into every field of
endeavor, he said. He defined the re-
search method as the "scientific ap-
proach to solving the problems of
Much of the economic and social
news that reaches our citizens today
is composed of "half-truths," Boyd
Research methods provide the only
means to overcome this "triumph of
propaganda" in our country today,
he asserted.
Opportunities in the field of social
work were discussed by Cecile Whal-
en, Assistant to Social Service Direc-
tor, Detroit Department of Public
Welfare in yesterday's session at the
League. The turnover in jobs in social
work in Michigan amounts to about
200 a year, she said.
With the present small number of

persons in this rapidly expanding
field, she pointed out, college-trained
applicants having at least one year
of graduate work in any of the many
and varied welfare branches will not
have much trouble finding positions.
Persons hoping to enter this field
were advised by Miss Whalen not to
adopt it unless possessed of good
imaginations and a liking for people.
Prof. Shattuch Fisher, Professor of
Child Study at Vassar College spoke
on "Home Management and Related
Occupations" in the afternoon meet-
ing at the League. Asserting that tests
show that 80 per cent of college girls
desire for husbands, men who are the
"right" social set, able to support
them at their accustomed standards
of living, and good looking, Dr. Fish-
er stated that the best things in
marriage were lost to them because
of this attitude.
Marriage will not provide "a fresh
start" in life, she said, because young
people take their "old selves" into
the new association. Success, however,
can come, Dr. Fisher concluded, is
young men and women evaluate their
own lives in terms of assets and lia-
bilities with a view to developing the
best qualities and correcting the defi-
cient ones.
The "tools" students pick up in
college mean little when they look
for a job in industry, Harry H. Coll,
of the Murray Corporation of Ameri-
ca, warned last night in a meeting of
the Conference at the Union.
Ability and perseverance are the
biggest factors that contribute toward
success. Mr. Coll declared.

LANSING-Michigan political ob-
servers today were carefully watching
the effects of an announcement here
yesterday which said that former
Gov. Chase S. Osborn had sent a tele-
gram to Gov. Luren D. Dickinson, urg-
ing that Harry S. Toy be appointed
new lieutenant governor of the state.
Harry Toy opposed the late Frank
D. Fitzgerald for the Republican
nomination for governor in the pri-
mary election last year. He is a for-
mer supreme court justice and for-
mer attorney general of the state.
Former Governor Osborn has been
a member of the state Republican
party membership for 'many years.
He made political history in Michi-
gan last fall when he bolted the
Republican party to support the
candidacy of Gov. Frank Murphy
against Fitzgerald.
In the meantime Gopernor Dickin-
son has remained officially silent on
the question of the new appointment'
to the chair left vacant when he took
the governor's oath after Governor
Fitzgerald's death last week.
The announcement of former Gov-
ernor Osborn's telegram was credit-
ed here to "sources close to Governor
Dickinson." At the present time Os-
born is living in his winter home at
Poulan, Georgia.
The Lansing announcement came

on the heels of various rumors that
Dickinson desires to resign his posi-
tion as soon as he can straighten af-
fairs up in the governor's office.
Both Osborn ana. Dickinson are old
time state Republicans. Dickinson
was serving his seventh term as lieu-
tenant governor when he was elevated
to the governor's chair.
Former Governor Osborn's split
with Fitzgerald was presumably
caused by Fitzgerald's attitude to-
ward Dickinson, his running mate on
the Republican ticket against Frank
Murphy and Leo Nowicki, Democrat-
ic nominees,.
It was only after an announcement
by Fitzgerald on a speaking platform
during the pre-election campaign that
"Nowicki will be your next lieutenant
governor" that Osborn openly an-
nounced his support for Murphy.
It is well known that Dickinson and
Toy are united in the same wing of
the Republican party, as opposed to
the Frank McKay faction of Grand
Rapids which backed Fitzgerald.
Osborn was one of Toy's most loyal
workers in the primary election. Toy
won victories only in the vote in the
Upper Peninsula counties. Osborn's
summer home and voting residence is
Sault Ste. Marie.
Governor Dickinson is an outspok-
3n enemy of state gambling and liquor
