Issue Featuring Stories
By Cissel And Adanis
1o Go On Sale Today
Featuring an article by Prof. A H
White of the chemical engineering
department on his experiences in in-
dustry and the early history of his de-
partment at the University, the Mich-
igan Technic will make its third ap-
pearance of the year today.
Other leading articles in this issue
of the official Engineering College
publication are "Down with the Wind"
by Prof. James H. Cissel of the
civil engineering department, "Under
Special Survey" by Prof. H. C. Ad-
ams of the naval architecture de-
partment and "Bucking a Blitz-
krieg" by Arthur W. C. Dobson, '42E.
"Down with the Wind" deals with
Professor Cissel's analysis of the re-
cent Tacogia Bridge disaster in Wash-
ington. According to the author the
failure of the bridge was due to its
extreme flexibility-a failing he
recognized and spoke against before
the bridge was constructed.
Professor Adams' story concerns
various naval classification societies
which check ship designs and con-
structons whle "Bucking a Blitzkrieg"
concerns the relative merits of Bri-
tish and German fighting planes.
Among the regular features which
will appear include "The Technic
Rambles" which discusses several
honor society initiations and "The
Technic Explores" which will con-
sider such thngs as geographc soap
and a new device which will tran-
scribe cylinder records to discs.

1 ROTC 'Draft Evaders'
Get Registration Cards.
Because members of the advanced
course, Senior Division of the ROTC,
had no credentials to show that they
were not draft evaders when asked

to produce a draft registration card,
they have now been issued a suitable
identification card.
Advanced students of ROTC have
been exempted from registration for
compulsory training service. The card
which has been given out is good
until next June. It will be surrendered
on withdrawal or separation from
the advanced course.

Duthie Leaves
For Chicago
Naval School
Instructor Of Mathematics
Will Take Up Teaching
Duties At Northwestern
The needs of national defense were
considered more vital than education
yesterday when William D. Duthie,
instructor in the mathematics de-
partment, left for duty as a teacher
in the Naval Reserve Midshipmen's
School on the Northwestern Univer-
sity campus in Chicago.
Mr. Duthie is a commissioned nav-
al reserve officer, and only a short
time ago he received a telegram ask-
ing him to report at the Chicago
station. He received his commission
as ensign at the University of Wash-
ington in Seattle after four years in
the Naval Reserve Officers Train-
ing Corps from 1931-35. During the
last five years he has been studying

for a promotion and has spent the
past week in Detroit taking the re-
quired exams for promotion to Lieu-
tenant (first class).
In an interview before he left Mr.
Duthie said that the Chairman of
the Defense Commission had in-
formed him that the forcing of his
withdrawal from teaching in the Un-
iversity to active service at the naval
school was an exlperimental case,
and the first of its kind. His duties
were not ,explained, but Mr. Duthie
expected that in the four months
naval course which includes one
month of cruising given at North-
western he would be asked to teach
He is well-experienced in naviga-
tion, having cruised in both oceans
during his training period.

T'wo intercircle debates among
members of Sigma Rho Tau, honor-
ary engineering speech society, willt
be held at the group's weekly meet-
ing at 7:30 p.m. today in the Union.
Juniors and seniors in the "Stump
Speakers' Society" will discuss thel
topic: "Resolved: That This Houset
Favors A Rear Installation for En-.
gines in 1942 Automobiles" while
the underclassmen will hold theirt
second debate on the question: "Re-t
solved: That the Government Should,
Manufacture Guns and Power."
Among the points which will be
considered in the former debate aref
the safety, economy, appearance and1
speed in cars with the engines in the
back and the reaction of the public
to such a change.I
The other discussion will deal with
the ability of the government to
manufacture munitions, the advis-
ability of their undertaking produc-
tion in such a seasonal industry and
their right to make such a movej
under the Constitution.
Plans have been made by Prof.
Robert D. Brackett of the engineer-
ing English department, adviser of
the group, to give a cup to the win-
ning team in the later intercircle
competition. Thus far 10 teams have
been formed and five debates are
scheduled for the present semester.
Next semester the local chapter
will hold a series of debates with
other Sigma Rho Tau chapters
throughout the country both on en-
gineering subjects and current events.
All of the discussions will be of the
"business conference" type rather
than the ordinary formal debates in
order to give students a chance to
contradict statements and ask for ex-
planations at any time.
Will Convene
In LouisiTana
Profs. MacMurray, James
Will Attend Annual
AAG Christmas Meet
The University of Michigan will
send Prof. K. C. MacMurray and
Prof. P. E. James, both of the Geo-
graphy Department, to the annual
meeting of the Association of Amer-
ican Geographers which will be held
Dec. 27 and 28 at Baton Rouge, Lou-
The meeting will be featured by a
presidential address entitled "Fore-
ward to Historical Geography" which
will be delivered by Carl O. Saur,
Professor of Geography at the Uni-
versity of California and a former
geographer at the University of Mich-
igan from 1913 to 1923.
Prof. P. E James, who is secretary
of the geographers' society, will de-
liver his paper, "Expanding Settle-
ments in Latin America." He will
present the problem concerning four
areas in that country where settle-
ment is increasing, according to his
own statement received today.
Costa Rica, Colombia, Chile and
southern Brazil are the only places
in South America which are grow-
ing out into new land from their
margins, Prof. James pointed out.
"In my paper, I wil attempt to
suggest that geographers should foc-
us their attention on these four areas
in question in an endeavor to ex-
plain why these particular regions
alone have expanded. Such an expan-
sion is unusual, in view of the fact
that there are so few people in Latin
America," he stated in explanation.
Defense Talks Reported
mutual defense understanding be-

tween Mexico and the United States,
expected to shape into a far-reach-
ing nrogram of military and econom-
ic collaboration within the next year,
was reported unofficially today under
discussion between Mexico City and

delay all action until after Christmas
Anyway, that's what Sol Heligman,
'41D, president of the senior class in
the Dentistry School maintains and,
according to his colleagues Heligman
is the present organizer of the "anti-
four-out-of-five" coalition.
Thus far the dentists have decided
to stage a "wholesale dating" with a
group of Ypsilanti coeds as a protest
against the low rating given them in
a recent Ann Arbor poll terming them
the "least liked" men on campus.
"We're still sore," Heligman said
yesterday, "and we still intend to get
our revenge against those unappreci-
ative females. The dentists are the
best dates on campus and all intelli-
gent women realize that fact, which
only goes to prove that the poll of
150 coeds was a poll of 150 unintelli-
gent coeds."
It was also announced that the den-
tists would be partially satisfied if a
sufficient number of coeds wrote a
letter of apology for their "careless
judgment" and would admit that the
tooth-pullers were the No. 1 males
on campus.
City Finances
To Be Subject
Of New Survey
Municipal League Studies
Effects Of Limitatious
On Personal Taxa~tion
A survey on the financial struc-
ture of cities having a 15-mill lim-
itation on taxing real or personal
property for operating expenses will
be published in February by - the
Michigan Municipal League.
In 1932 the State Constitution
was amended so that all property
tax levies for operating expenses
could not exceed the rate of 15-
mills. In 1932 the Supreme Court
exempted cities and villages from
the limitation. They could tax ac-
cording to the provision in their chap-
ters. \Counties and school districts,
however, remained under the limita-
A year later in 1934 Flint put the
15-mill limitation in its charter. Since
then ten other cities have followed.
The Municipal League is collecting
data on their finances since 1937. A
previous publication in 1938 covers
the years preceding the limitation
and the years when the limitation
was first tried up to 1937. This sur-
vey shows that one of the greatest
problems faced by the municipality
was relief. Attempts have been made,
however, to eliminate the evils of the
emergency relief set-up and provide
for a maximum of local control on
the county level with a sound method
of state sharing to avoid favoritism.
It was found that legislation must
be passed to transfer the functions
and services then scattered in many
different agencies if the cities could
remain under the limitation.
The general conclusion of the sur-
vey was that many cities going on the
limitation would have to live on their
cash income for the first time or de-
velope.new revenues from greater
exercising of the licensing and po-
lice powers, extraordinary use of
special assessments, and a restora-
tion 6f 1930 valuations.
The City of Ann Arbor has a tax
limitation in its charter of 7.5 mills.
The school districts here have a 9.5-
inill tax this year for operating ex-
penses while the County has 4.2-mill
