Approve Loan
For Britain
Poll Is Supervised
By Prof. Remer
Nearly 2,000 American economists,
serving in the government, in advis-
ory capacities, and in educational
institutions, have signed a statement
supporting the proposed financial
agreement with Great Britain which
is now before Congress.
This was announced yesterday by
University economist prof. Charles F.
Remer who supervised the polling.
Polling Proposed
"The statement, Prof. Remer
pointed out," was prepared by a small
informal group of economists who
agreed at the Cleveland meeting of
the American Economics Association
in January that their fellow econo-
mists ought to have a chance to ex-
press themselves on an issue of out-
standing importance in the field of
their competence."
Of the economists polled only 4.3
per cent refused to support the mea-
sure. More than 20 to 1 supported
the proposal.
Unanimous Opinion
Although the poll was not spon-
sored by the American Economics
Association, most of those polled be-
long to the group. Statement of the
economists' virtually unanimous
opinion on the proposal has been
forwarded to Congress, Prof. Remer
The British loan agreement was
worked out by officials of 'the two na-
tions concerned, the economists ex-
plain. It awaits final action by Con-

Candy Thieves
Ransack Daily
Sweettoothed bandits smashed
into The Daily sometime Sunday
and rifled the candy and cigarette
machines in the Editorial Office.
An attempt to break into a soft-
drinkis machine in the building
proved futile.
Entry was made by battering
through a back door, local police
Loss to The Daily has been es-
timated at "somewhere below $20."
The thieves rifled through most
of the editorial and advertising
desks, but left them as they found
them, in a state of disarray..
Detective George Stauch, of the
local police department has been
assigned the case and spent much
of yesterday afternoon recording
fingerprints and taking photos of
the crime scene.
Hear Report
Progress in the setting-up of the
United Nations Educational, Scien-
tific and Cultural Organizations was
reported before a meeting last night
of the University of Michigan Sci-
entists Association.
The speaker was Prof. Richard J.
Porter, assistant professor of pro-
tozoology, who said that a constitu-
tion had been drawn up in London
by a conference of representatives of
44 countries, and that Russia was
conspicuously absent from the con-
ference. He explained that the reason
was probably because of an objection
to the general tone of the organiza-
tion, which is primarily interested
in "educational and cultural rehabili-
tation of Europe and in the diffusion
of knowledge among the peoples of
the world."
The constitution will be enforced
and the group will begin function-
ing, he continued, when the docu-
ment has been ratified by 20 coun-
tries. Membership will automatically
be open to members of the United
Nations and to other countries by
special admission. Supporters of the
group, he added, hope to bring it into
relation with UN as soon as possible.

'Errand Boy'
UN Job Quit
By Stettinius
Johnson Will Fill
Post Temporarily
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, June 3 - Edward
R. Stettinius, Jr., quit definitely to-
day as United States representative
to the United Nations, a job which
some said he had come to regard
as an "errand boy's."
Ernest Insistence
President Truman said last week,
when Stettinius' intention was re-
ported, that he hoped to induce the
latter to stay. But Stettinius pressed
his resignation at the White House
today and the President announced
its acceptance, at Stettinius' "earnest

ently takes effect immediately. The

Stettinius gave no reason for his
resignation except to say that when
he entered government service he ex-
pected to remain only as long as he
was needed during the war. Now
that the U.N. is "a going concern",
he added, he felt he could rightfully
ask Mr. Truman to accept his resig-
Rapid Rise
The rapidity of Stettinius' rise in
government paralleled his climb to
top-level positions in the General

porations in the 1930's.
Job Prospects
Topic of Lecture
By .prof. Haber
The concluding lecture of the lit-
erary college series on career oppor-
tunities will be given by Prof. Wil-
liam Haber of the economics depart-
ment at 4:30 p.m. today in Rm. 1025
Angell Hall.
Prof. Haber will discuss "Occupa-
tional Trends and Job Prospects."
"The pattern of economic oppor-
tunity is continually changing," Prof.
Haber declared in an interview yes-
terday, "and although there is no
fixed and rigid occupational pattern
it is possible for the school admin-
istrator, the job seeker and the plan-
ner to look ahead and get a reason-
ably clear idea as to where job ex-
pansion is likely to take place and
what kind of activity it will contract."
"There have been tremendous
shifts in the importance of certain
occupations, Prof. Haber declared.
"Many of them, prominent in pro-
viding expanding employment op-
portunities for generations of people,
have been declining. On the other
hand, a great number of activities
in providing employment for millions
of people have been expanding and
promise to continue in that trend
for a long time,"
Prof. Haber said that he intended
to discuss these two aspects of job
prospects, emphasizing in particular

the job outlook in terms of employ-
ment opportunities in various sec-
tions of American industry.
He plans also to consider other
forms of professional activity which
have been discussed in the previous

Engineering Activities
An experimental program in soil
mechanics closely coordinated with
airfield maintenance and construc-
tion is being planned for Willow Run
by the Department of Civil Engineer-
ing, Prof. William S. Housel of that
department said in an interview yes-
First Projects
Large scale loading tests are the
first projects proposed for Willow
Run by Prof. Housel, who was con-
sulting engineer for the original con-
struction of the airport. Evaluations
of airport paving under wheel loads
up to 150,000 pounds will be made.
"Since the present runways at Wil-
low Run are not built for sch loads
some persons fear that they will be
broken up," Prof. Housel said. "We
must either take precautions to see
that the runways are not damaged,
or establish rates high enough to
repair or replace them."
Heavy -Runways
Pointing out that some authorities
say our large planes will require
runways six or seven feet thick, Prof.
Housel said that the cost of con-
structing such runways would be al-
most prohibitive.
The second project outlined by
Prof. Housel includes field observa-
tions of the service behavior of run-
ways. Full scale pavement cross-
sections will be constructed and
tested under acelerated traffic and
full size wheel loads. This project
will include the observation and ana-
lysis of existing paving under the
heavy traffic contemplated by the
"Development of rational design of
airport drainage systems is the third
project planned," Prof. Housel said
"By improving drainage we can in-
crease the carrying capacity of the
subsoil, perhaps enough to enable
the subgrade to carry loads itself.
This would eliminate the necessity
of having very thick pavements."
Instructional Program
An instructional program in soil
surveys and the influence of soil
conditions on airport design and
construction is the fourth project
that will be taken up at Willow Run
by the Department of Civil Engineer-
ing. The fifth project is concerned
with modern construction equipment-
design, operating characteristics and
cost estimates.
"We would like to accumulate at
Willow Run as much of the con-
struction equipment used in building
airports as we can get," Prof. Housel
explained. "Then graduate and spe-
cial students will have an opportun-
ity to become familiar with the ope-
rating characteristics of modern con-
struction equipment.
Prof. Housel estimated that the
program outlined above will require
approximately 22,000 square feet of
the buildings on the airfield.
Engine Students
To Use Airport
Willow Run Airport will be used
as a field test station to train stu-
dents in matters relating to aviation,
aircraft, and airports, Prof. Emerson
W. Conlon, chairman of the Depart-
ment of Aeronautical Engineering,
said yesterday.
The airport facilities will be used
for the expansion of the aeronautical
engineering department and for the
development of aircraft and civil avi-
Instruction and research work in

the fields of propulsion and aerody-
namics will be included in the Uni-
versity's program at Willow Run.
An option to train engineers for
airline operation will be initiated
when there is sufficient demand for
it if a program can be formulated
which will be approved by the Society
for the Promotion of Engineering
Education, Prof. Conlon said.
