Prof. Young
Ann Arbor's
(Continued from Page 1)
He has held an elective office
ver since 1932 when ne was choser
to represent the seventh ward on th
city council.
After gaining experience in coca
government by holding such import-
ant council posts as chairman of th'
ordinance and budget committees
he was elected by local voters ir
1937 to the presidency of the counci
and he has held that position up tc
the present time.
In 1926 he had a political exper-
ience which he looks back on now
with amusement. In order to make
;ood his campaign promises to clean
out the state conservation depart-
ment the late Gov. Fred Green ap-
pointed Young state director of con-
servation. Young took office at thE
beginning of that year with the gov-
ernor's assurance that he could con-
duct the agency free from any politi-
cal interference.
Because the forestry expert ignored
requests for patronage appointments
and privileges for special group'
heavy pressure was put on Green.
As a result Young was forced out
of office and he resumed his teaching
duties here in the fall. This exper-
ience has given Young an under-
standing of the politipal game plus a
rich fund of anecdotes.
The mayor-elect was born in Al-
bia. Iowa in 1883. Pe began his col-
legiate career at Columbia and then
came here where he received his mas-
ter's degree in 1911. Although he had
vowed that "teaching was the last
thing he wanted to do," he became an
instructor at the University the fall'
after graduation and has continued
on the faculty until the present.
He assumes the community's hfgh-
est public office with unusual attri-
butes. One of his colleagues on the
council declared "that he has ex-
tremely sound judgment" and likes
to be thoroughly informea.
