If Michigan sales and use taxes
are to be made more effective, an
increased amount must be spent on
their administration to overcome the
legal and practical difficulties of en-
forcing such laws, a recent Bureau
of Government report recommended.
The study entitled, "The Michigan
Retail Sales and Use Taxes," was
made by Dr. Robert S. Ford, director
of the Bureau, and E. Fenton Shep-
ard, research assistant. It concerns,
administrative problems of the sales
tax, comparative state practices, fi-
nancial results, constitutional prob-
lems of sales taxes, and the Mich-
igan use tax.

M. Thompson
Joins Faculty
At U Of Texas
Milton J. Thompson, formerly an
associate professor in the aeronau-
tical engineering department here,
left for the University' of Texas in
Austin Monday where he will receive
a full professorship and take charge
of the new aeronautical program
which is being planned there.
A graduate of the University's Col-
lege of Engineering with a B.S.E. de-
gree in 1925 and an M.S.E. degree in
1926, Professor Thompson won a
Daniel Guggenheim award in 19281
for two years of study in aerody-
namics under Prof. C. W. Witoszynski
at the Warsaw Polytechnic School
He received his Doctor's degree in
1930 after which he became asso-
ciated with the aeronautical depart-
Noted mainly for his aerodynamic
work on some of the military craft
now in production, Professor Thomp-
son did a great deal of theoretical
work in helping to perfect the na-
sion 's most powerful pursuit ship,
the Airacobra,which flew at the
ate of 620 miles per hour in a re-
cent test.
He also played an active part in
the construction of the Airacodo
1bomber and the Lockheed Electra,
a transport ship which broke all rec-
ords a few weeks ago by making a
cross-country trip in only ten hours.
At the University Professor Thomp-
son worked with Prof. Felix W. Paw-
lowski, also of the aeronautical en-
gineering department, on the design
and construction of the wind tunnel.

Commander Kniskern is in the hull
division of the Bureau'of Ships where
he sp4cializes in ship design work.
According to Capt. Lyal i A. David-
son of the local NROTC uniti, he is
one of the leading naval men in the
country in this type of work andis
well qualified to discuss the building
of fighting craft,
