Prof. E. H. Gault Encourages Permanent
Cominssion for Saginaw Valley Drainage

- -
has participated in extensive re-
search in the matter, pointed out that
the supply of water is the outstand-
ing problem of the Valley. Agricul-
ture requires drainage of wet land,
and the more rapid run-off of the
water increases the flood problems of
cities in the valley and decreases the

supply of water in the, streams dur-
ing drought.
The specific problem of the Sag-
inaw Valley is, however, land utiliza-
tion for urban and industrial pur-
poses. The utilization of land for
urban uses on the rivers above Sag-
inaw Bay has both lessened the sup-
ply of portable water for the cities
of the valley and polluted the river
water through sewage disposal. In-
dustrialization of the Valley leads to
a great consumption of water as well
as to the water's contamination from
the disposal of waste materials from
the chemical and petroleum indu-
stries and sugar beet processing
plants into the river.
The nine-point program for the
Saginaw 'Valley, the result of th ,
Saginaw Conference on December 27,
1944, dealt with problems and solu-
tions which were either directly or
closely related to the problem of
water. These problems of too much,
too little, and polluted water affect
both urban and rural populations.
A permanent Saginaw Valley Plan-
ning Commission should be appoint-
ed if the problem is to be tackled
from the broad viewpoint of the en-
tire valley. The Commission, said
Prof. Gault, would have the respon-
sibility for making studies of Sagin-
aw Valley problems, proposing solu-
tions, securing public acceptance of
these solutions, and seeing that these
accepted policies are carried through.
In general, he concluded, the pre-
liminary task~s of the* Commission
would be a determination of the land
that should be acquired by the public
for recreational activities and parks,
the completion of land-use maps to
promote understanding, an estimation
by districts of the future urban and
industrial growth of the Valley, and
a detailed inventory of the current
problems and projects of all political
units and business groups in the Val-
ley which affect the supply or de-
mand for water.

Plans Further
Investigation
Difficulty Expected
By Military Committee
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, May 7-Congress
dug deeper today into army demobi-
lization plans and food shortages.
The House military committee,
however, looked for some difficulty
in getting officers to talk as a re-
sult of last weeks disclosures on plans
to release 2,000,000 men within a
year.
Today's session also was closed.
Chairman May (D.-Ky.) said he did
not know who was responsible for
the last week's leaks but he intended
to find out. He suggested that any
member who can't keep confidential
information to himself "get off the
committee."
The committee sought more details
on these two points in particular: 1-
The order in which the discharge
factors of length of service, foreign
service, combat record and depen-
dents will be considered; .2-Future
draft calls.
Rebate Order
Dcraws Protest
LANSING, May 2--- !i*Counsel for
the Michigan Bell Telephone Com-
pany and the Detroit Edison Com-
pany today pressed their objections
to state Public Service Commission
order requiring them to' rebate
$3,500,000 and $10,500,000, respective-
ly, to customers to avoid federal ex-
cess profits taxes.
Before Circuit Judge Leland W.
Carr, Thomas G. Long, counsel for
the telephone company, asserted the
rebate order was not served on the
company .until last December 30,
affecting last year, and argued the
commission had no authority to make
retroactive orders.

Designed For Boys

son Lake 24 miles northwest .of Ann

boys.
This is the 25th season for the
camp which is designed to serve a
threefold purpose: It is a vacation
camp for boys who would benefit from
the program; it submits diagnostic
reports to referral agencies on each
camper; and it offers students an op-

portunity for observation and study
of individual and group behavior.
Faculty Attends
Other University faculty members
attending the meeting were Dean
James B. Edmonson. Prof. Louis A.
'Hopkins, Prof. Raymond W. Wag-
goner, Prof. Edward W. Blakeman,
