Tibbitts Sees Political Maneuver
n Attack On Census Qsions

Business Doesn't Object,
Republicans Shouldn't,
Sociologist Points Out
Attacks in Congress and in the
press on the census questions that
will be asked this year are a political
maneuver calculated to embarrass the
administration, according to Clark
Tibbitts, lecturer in the sociology de-
partment and director of the Insti-
tute for Human Adjustment.
Tibbitts pointed out that while
the Republicans have been creating
a census issue there have been no
complaints from such organized
spokesmen for business as the Cham-
ber of Commerce or the National
Manufacturers' Association. It was
explained that private business is no
less interested in the results than
the government. "Every industry
that is concerned with selling to the
public wants to find out exactly
where its markets are, especially those
organizations that manufacture high-
priced goods lilse automobiles, radios
and mechanical refrigerators."
Should Bring Results
He declared that the housing ques-
tions, together with the income items,'
should bring valuable results because
the private housing industry will be
able to determine how many potential
buyers of their homes there are in
this country. Also it will be shown
how far government can subsidize
before it competes with realtors.
Tibbitts cited canvasses that have
been made which covered questions
similar to those which have drawn
the rebuke of the Republicans. "Yet
Ann Arbor

in 1935 and '30 goaurnenlal agen-
cies made surveys sampling the en-
tire country that asked for much
more detailed and personal informa-
tion than the items that are now
being criticized. At those times there
was no outcry and no disastrous
consequences resulted from the sur-
veys. Further, the Canadian census
for many years has inquired about
income questions that are no less,
personal and there has been no dic-
tatorship there."
One Objection Conceded
He conceded, however, one objec-]
tion raised by Arthur Krock, of the
New York Times. He feels that the
census would be more accurate if the
personnel was trained in that type of,
work instead of being mere political
appointees. For purposes of com-
parison though, he explained that
since all previous censuses have been
made by untrained political work-
ers, Republicans and Democrats, sta-
tisticians can allow for about the same
Tibbitts observed that this census
will be significant because every ques-
tion is of important interest.
"Through the income tax reports
we can gather figures on the upper
third of the population and through
relief workers we collect statistics on
the lower third but this census is the
only way of finding out about the
middle third," he concluded.

ment, presented one fourth in a
series of Spanish lectures speisored

Professor Pagan, an exchange pro-
fessor from Puerto Rico, illustrated

cribed the geographic distribution,
origin, and habitat of sugar cane,
coffee, pineapples, cacao, citrus

We reprint a resolution passed by
the faculty of the engineering col-
lege and citing the work of Prof. Ben-
jamin F. Bailey of the electrical
engineering department:
"The College of Engineering has
been honored by the distinction which
has come to one of our colleagues who
has been named as a Modern Pioneer
on the American Frontiers of Indus-
try. He was not only a member of
the group which received citations at
the banquet given in Detroit on Feb-
ruary 15th, but was, also, one of the
five individuals of that group

encouragement of purely reflective

responsibility for economic adjust-

and the new trend towards coopera-

Discussion at the convention, it
was indicated by the speakers, cen-

In Summary
More than a year's work of the
City Planning Commission resulting
in a master plan mapping the future
physigal development of the city of
Ann Arbor was submitted by the Com-
mission Monday night to the city
council for approval.
A public heari g considering the
plan will be :held after a committee of
the whole meeting of the city council
has been held to discuss it March 13.
The plan covers an area including
the present city and the area adja-
cent for about two miles beyond.

highways, building and housing is,
A two thirds vote of the council and
approval by the state is necessary
for the adoption of the plan.
Marksmen of the Ann Arbor
police department, the Washte-
naw County sheriff's department
and the Honolulu, Hawaii police
force are holding a triangular
postal pistol match with the local
teams one week off schedule be-
cause of weather conditions.
The match, which is being
scored by mail, is to be held out-
doors according to the agreement,
and was scheduled for last Sun-
day. Ann Arbor weather frus-
trated the boys at this end, but it
is to be presumed that things at
theHonolulu end came off as
arranged. Results will be known
several weeks after the last shot
has been fired.
Voters in the seventh ward have
long been troubled by the damp, cold
atmosphere of the log cabin in Burns

day the city council considered the
The budget committee recommend-
ed the construction of a wood floor
to remedy the situation. Alderman
Arbie Clever thought it might be bet-

concrete floor later.
Mayor Walter C. Sadler had the
best idea of all. "If you use sawdust
you might as well build a bar," he
remarked, a twinkle in his eye.

Harold S. Gray, nationally known
conscientious objector during the
World War, will speak on "Facing
