Patrick Named Patron Sait
Of AllEngieering Banquet
Slide-Rulers Select Irishman To Give A;sistance
In Carrying Out Feud With Barristers
Continuing their feud against the lawyers, Michigan's engineers named
St. Patrick yesterday as their "man behind the scenes" for the All-Engineer-I
ing Banquet on March 28, Open House on the 29th and the annual Slide
Mule Ball oan Aioril 4.
St. Patrick, the engineers claim, is the logical man to support their cause
for not only was he one of the leading engineers of all times but he was also
a man that "didn't exactly like the barristers."
And, continue the engineers, we have appointed a "man behind the
scenes" to help us in our struggle with the lawyers who have had the audacity
to claim that they, and not we, are most favored by the Michigan coeds.
Here are some comments by three of the leading students in the College
of Engineering on the appointment -

before the zoology session of the
Michigan Academy, stressed the im-

Prof. Woodhead presented a paper
on the giant kidney worm, which
revealed the complete life cycle of
this worm for the first time.
Another important contribution

of Albion College, who announced
that a rare female spider belonged to
another known species.

engineers we ever had. By ridding
old Erin of its snakes he became the
inventor of the first worm drive, and
later decided to take the chosen few
under his protection. The lawyers

answer is yes and you may quote me

The impact of modern total war
upon the social structure of a nation
presents a problem toward which the
sociologist can contribute by a main-
tenance of morale, Dr. Werner S.
Landecker of the sociology depart-
ment declared in an address before
the sociology section of the Michi-
gan Academy.
Entitled "War and Some of its
Implications for Sociological Re-
search," Dr. Landecker's speech
pointed out that "only if we succeed
in demonstrating that a democracy
at war is not a dictatorship, only then
can we expect the man on the street
to keep his faith in democratic in-


Form A bstraction

Results of an exploratory experi-
ment show that among children
between the ages of four and
seven form abstraction is dom-,
inant to a much larger extent
than is color abstraction, according
to Jean Belknap who addressed thel
psychology section of the Michigan
Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Establishment of price controls and priorities combined with a non-
inflationary fiscal policy to check an inflationary process, is advocated by
Prof. Robert S. Ford of the economics department and Director of the
Bureau of Government in a Bureau publication, "Financing National De-
fense," released yesterday.
In his discussion of financing defense Prof. Ford explains the back-
ground of the present situation, noting the differences in financial condia
tions now and prior to our entry into the last war. At the end of the fiscal
year on June 0, 1940, the federal government completed ten years of
deficit financing with an average anrnual deficit of about three billions.
Total annual (xpenditures have risen from four billions iri 1931 to nine'
---fillions in 1940. Before the World

The findings corroborate in a
general way the theory that there is
an increasing trend toward domin-
ance of form abstraction in chil-

r/ The major problems in financing
the defense program center ;around
taxation, borrowing and the infla-
1k tionary aspects of borrowing. Prof.
Ford emphasizes, however, that be-
fore trying to determine the relative
merits of either it should always be
1le remembered that they are comple-
to mentary
he At the beginning of a large arma-
o- ments program funds will have to be
by obtained through borrowing, but as
op time progresses the part raised by
)le taxation should increase. Govern-
o- ment borrowing from commercial
re. banks has certain inflationary ten-
he dencies, but in the early stages of
sit war when there are idle resources it
- s probably desirable.
'st Another element that must be con-
n, sidered, Dr. Ford points out, is whe-
nt ther borrowing will transfer the war
y. costs to future generations. When
he (the bonds are held entirely by people
iE n the borrowing nation, the cost
1y will not be shifted to future genera-
ly tions. Taxation, by its lessening of
funds for consumption, will burden
the present generation.
an Reviewing specific proposals for
nt financing the defense program, Dr.
Ford comes to the conclusion that
in the selection of new taxes or an in-
ns crease in old taxes should be deter-
a- mined with references - to economic
n effects and the rapidity with which
we. are approaching full employment.
Full employment in an industrial
system takes a long time to attain
and England is just approaching it
after a year and a half of war.
In a period when military produc-
or ticn is expanding rapidly the spiral
be of rising costs and prices may be-
ll come operative before full employ-
ment, however. It is most essen-
n tial, therefore, according to Prof.
be Ford, that a non-inflationary fiscal
nt policy be adopted before, rather than
in after, the attainment of full utiiiza-
tion of labor, resources, machinery.
