Five members of the local chap-

relations resulting from the construc-
tion of the canal.

Establishing itself more and more
as a recognized authority on state
finance, taxation, and administra-
tion throughout the nation today is
the Bureau of Government of the
University of Michigan.
Organized in 1914, the scope of
the Bureau's activities was limited
until 1934 when a grant of funds
from the Rackham estate for gov-
ernmental research made possible
an expansion of its research activi-
ties. At that time the Bureau was
recognized as an independent unit
and placed under the supervision of
Harold D. Smith, present Federal
Now part of the University Insti-
tute of Public and Social Administra-
tion in the Graduate School, the
Bureau of Government is headed by
Prof. Robert S. Ford of the econom-
ics department and one of the fore-
most experts in the country on tax-
ation. Recently the Bureau has pub-
lished a number of bulletins dealing
with Michigan governmental and
tax problems. Included in these are
studies of tax delinquency, financ-
ing Michigan's government, proper-
ty tax administration, taxation of
intangibles, trends in highway fi-
nance, the state administrative
board, and voting behavior. All to-
gether the Bureau has some 18 dif-
ferent publications to its credit.
Within the next weeks three new
bulletins will be released dealing
with the retail sales and use taxes
in Michigan, initiative and referen-
dum in Michigan, and local govern-
ment in Branch County.
