County Board
Gives Opinion
Of City Plan
Official States Attitude
Toward Cherry Hill
Housing Program
As lot stakes were driven into a 15-
mile area in Superior and Ypsilanti
Townships, the site on which the
Government plans to build a 6,000
home bomber plant city, the Washte-
fnaw County Board of Supervisors yes-
terday authorized Prosecutor George
Meader to send all Federal officials
nconcerned with the matter a copy of
his outline stating the county's atti-
tude toward the project.
Meader's statement, which was ap-
plauded by the board after it was
read to them, stated that, "it should
be observed that the county is loyal
to the nation's war effort and is anx-
ious to take its part in the program."
Will Cooperate
It continued, "If the program pro-
posed is the most efficient and eco-
nomic solution to the housing prob-
lem at Willow Run, our county, while
not enthusiastic over the forecast
effect upon it, will of course, join in
the execution of the plan with full
"If, however, the contemplated
new municipality is an unnecessary
social experiment and the hysteria
cf the present crisis is seized upon as
the occasion for bringing it into be-
ing, the diversion of the extra time,
materials and effort from the produc-
tion of arms to defeat the Axis ought
to be condemned as an unpatriotic
Protested Plan
This statement was prepared by
Meader after he returned from a two
day visit to Washington on which
the board dispatched him last week
to protest the proposed Cherry Hill
bomber plant city. Upon his return
he reported to the board that it
seemed likely construction of the
bomber city would not be held up
and suggested that Government offi-
cials had no intention of changing
their plans.
He declared in his statement that
"it was somewhat of a shock that the
solution of this problem, of tremen-
dous and important significance and
direct interest to the community, be-
came publicly known for the first
time only last week," while the city
was planned well in advance of that
Ten objections to the city were
listed Ii Meaders statement, includ-
ing a new one of its proximity to the
Ford bomber plant as a strategic
military point. 'I

Aetuary Positions
Prof. C. J. Nesbitt, of the mathe-
matics department, reports that with
the advent of war and the growing
gaps in personnel, many insurance
companies arc now anxious to hire
women with mathematical training
for responsible positions in their ac-
tuarial departments.
In addition, companies have indi-
cated that though their training pro-
grams would be open to women for
such positions, it would not be re-
quired that they pass the examina-
tions necessary for admittance to the
actuarial societies.
The primary function of the actu-
ary, said Professor Nesbitt, is to cal-
culate premium rates, policy reserves,
inve:tment returns, and the distri-
bution of surplus. The basic train-
ing is mathemalical, but the more
advanced work touches a wide variety
of subjects including banking and
finance, social insurance and ac-

Law Review
Features War
Articles Offer Solutions
To Current Problems
The May issue of the Michigan Law
Review which goes on sale today, is
primarily a "war" issue with particu-
lar attention being devoted to emer-
gency problems and their solutions.
Dr. Paul B. Rava, formerly a lec-
turer at Padua University, has con-
tributed an article on "Procedure in
Emergency Price Fixing" which takes
up in detail the method established
by the Emergency Price Control Act.
Thomas K. Fisher, recent graduate
of the Law School and at present an
attorney in New York City, has writ-
ten "Antitrust During National
Emergencies," the first of two in-
stallments on the subject. In it he
attempts to show that anti-trust laws
have never been enforcedaso strin-
gently during emergencies as in nor-
mal times.
Another recent graduate. Robert
Meisenholder, is the author of "Tax-
ation of Annuity contracts under
Federal Income Tax."
