Dr. Ford And Goodrich
Suggest State Control
In ' Research Pamphlet
A more comprehensive plan of con-
trol of municipal finances by the
state to check the excessive growth
of municipal debts is recommended
by Dr. Robert S. Ford, director of
the Bureau of Government, and Ken-
neth S. Goodrich, former research
assistant, in the Bureau's pamphlet,
"State Supervision of Local Borrow-
ing," released recently.
Any such plan, the authors declare,
would include administrative super-
vision by the state, an over-all county
debt limit linked to the property tax
levy or collections for several pre-
ceding years, and permission to in-
crease the debt beyond the limit, sub-
ject to the approval of the Public
Debt Commission and the electorate.
The suggested plan could be easily
administered by agencies that are
already in existence, and it would
meet the urgent need for an effec-
tive method of debt control. Possible
agencies are the State Public Debt
Commission and the county alloca-
Dr. Ford and Goodrich point out
in their study of the municipal debt
situation that the present state con-
stitutional and statutory debt pro-
visions set up four different mechan-
ical limits on the amount of debt
that may be incurred by municipali-
ties. These limits may be classified
as (1) the flat amount; (2) fixed per-
centage of the tax to be levied or
collected"; (3) fixed percentage of
assessed valuation; and (4) a maxi-
mum tax rate for retiring debt in-
curred for certain specified purposes.
Tickets To Be Sold
With more than a hundred tickets
to the senior engineers picnic already
sold, the remaining fifty will go on
sale tomorrow at a booth over the
The annual picnic, which has been
moved up from its usual post-exam-
ination place to keep pace with the
defense-shortened semester, will be
held at 5 p.m. Friday on the Island.
Inter-departmental softball teams
have been formed specially for the
event and formation of a faculty
team has been rumored. Playoffs
will be held at the picnic and will
feature contests between chemical,
mechanical, metallurgical and ma-
rine engineers and naval architects.
Hitler To Meet Reichstag
LONDON, April 25.--OP)-Reuters
reported today that the Berlin cor-
respondent of the Swiss Gazette de
Laussane said Adolf Hitler soon
might address the Reichstag on Ger-
many's relations with France. The
correspondent was quoted as saying
he had learned that a large number
of French prisoners were to be re-
leased soon, but that most of them
would remain in Germany as factory
workers or be returned to French in-
dustries producing for the German
cU Tag Day Receipts Will Send
Under-Privileged Boys To Camp'
If the annual University Fresh Air
Camp Tag Day, to be held Friday,
May 1, reaches its $1,500 goal, over
300 underprivileged boys of south-
eastern Michigan will have a four-
weeks' summer vacation and a
chance to become better citizens than
their present circumstances promise.
A diagnostic rather than a correc-
tive institution, the Fresh Air Camp
every year gives
a respite from
in' congested ur-
ban areas. At the
camp, located on
Patterson Lake in
ty, wholesome food, sunshine and
rigorous exercise contribute im-
mensely to the health of the young-
sters, accustomed only to the recrea-
tional facilities of the city streets.
Boys are chosen for the camp
largely on the basis of need for psy-
chological correction. According to
Prof. F. N. Menefee of the civil engi-
neering department, camp director,
the chief cause of delinquency among
boys who attend the camp is lack
of proper parental attention. This

The camp does not attempt to cor-
rect these defects during the boys'
four-week stay, but opportunity is
given the trained counseling staff to
observe child reactions and to make
recommendations for treatment to
the social agencies which sent the
boys to the camp. The counselors
are graduate students of the Univer-
sity in psychology, sociology and ed-
ucation. They receive six hours of
academic credit for the eight-week
season. The boys are drawn largely
from the Ann Arbor, Jackson, Flint
and Detroit areas.
So successful have been the efforts
of the Fresh Air Camp that it is
ranked as one of the foremost insti-
tutions of its kind in the country.
Recognizing its worth, social agencies
contribute regularly to the camp's
budget. The rest is secured through
private donations and the annual
University Tag Days. The camp has
been located on University-owned
property on Patterson Lake since
1923. Previous to that year the
camp's sites were Port Huron and
Moon Lake in Livingston County.

Council will meet at 10:30 a.m.
