Bases Of Taxation
Discussed By Dow
At Social Seminar
Equality of opportunity, not equali-
ty of wealth or produce is a just basis
for taxation, stated Alex Dow, presi-
dent of the Detroit Edison Company
in addressing a meeting of the Ann
Arbor Social Service Seminar held
yesterday in the Chamber of Com-
merce building.
The undistributed profits tax vio-
lates this principle, he explained, and
by penalizing corporations for re-in-
vesting their earnings in the com-
pany, puts a virtual check on expan-
sion. Almost all businesses are built
on undivided profits, he explained,
and such a tax is extremely detrimen-
tal to business.
Condemning the use'of taxes to en-
courage profit sharing, Mr. Dow stat-
ed that a profit sharing scheme was
unfeasible for a regulated company
such as the Detroit Edison. Owners
would be antagonized by such a
scheme, he said, and it would tend to
discourage liberality toward employes.
Mr. Dow praised the principle of!
Social Security, but expressed the
opinion that the act was in great need
of simplification.

Twnty-one years of University
ROTC military training, marked by a
steady growth in student enrollpent
and frequent objections by pacifist
groups, will end here April 25, 1939.
Student training in army work be-
gan during the World War when the
Board of Regents accepted the United
States Army's proposal to incorpor-
ate a reserve officer's training corps
on the campus. More than 1,800 stu-
dents enrolled during the first week
of ROTC. This war-time unit was
then succeeded by the regular stu-
dent corps in 1918.
Military uniforms and drills were
prohibited on the campus durin'y the
first years of the ROTC existence.
Inauguration of the corps was ac-'
complished primarily through the
efforts of Dean Mortimer Cooley of
:,he engineering department and of1
Prof. William Hobbs, of the geology,
department- James B. Angell, presi-
dent of the University during the war,
was opposed to military education.
Military training on the campus has
been recorded as far back as 1862,
but failed to survive until the organi-
zation of the present group. The
World War uncovered a need for a
number of trained men in the lower
-ommissioned ranks of the United
States army, and this was said to be
,he original purpose of organizing
ROTC units.
Objection to ROTC education was
heard in 1924. The Michigan Alumnus
answered the charges with a four
page article which declared that the
aim of University military training
is not "to provide professional sol-
:iers, but to train officers for a na-
tional emergency."
In 1925 Prof. Alfred H. Lovell tole
390 members of the ROTC that.engi-
neers with training in military educa.
tion made more progress in their pro
fession than did those Who. had
learned only the theory of their work
The ROTC was again defehded ir
1927 by Gen. R. I- Reese, vice-presi-
dent of the American Telephone and
Telegraph Co., who delivered an ad-
dress stating that "no course in a
college curriculum can possibly de-
velop the quality of leadership, co-
operation and teamwork as well as
can the ROTC."
Military training was approved as
a substitute for freshman gymnasium
work by the Board of Regents in,1928.
