The man from Milwaukee, Prof.
Haber graduated from the Univer

M.A. there in 1925, and his doc-

University, where he held the

State Relief Administrator
Prof. Haber came to the Uni-
versity in 1936 as a professor of
economics after teaching at Mich-
igan State College and working
in public capacities in Lansing.
From 1933-36 he was state relief
administrator and NYA admin-
istrator. Prof. Haber worked for
four different governors of the
State because either each one re-
appointed him or they "just didn't
fire me" .
It is Prof. Haber's theory that
economists should "participate ac-
tively in the affairs of the com-
munity, state and nation," His
record proves he has lived this
In 1939, Prof. Haber took a leave
of absence to handle a job con-

14ainsworth Plans
Sermons Elsewhere
Rev. William Hainsworth of
Dexter hasn't given up the idea
of roof-top sermons despite the
refusal of Detroit officials to sanc-
tion his recent request to speak
in the Motor City.
Mr. Hainsworth had planned
to speak from thg roof of a one
story Detroit building today, fol-
lowing the biblical precept that
sermons should be spread fro
the roof-tops. Tenants of an
apartment near the site of, his
proposed talk had objected on
grounds that it would create a
public nuisance.
He has already given five talks
in Michigan and nearby states in
this manner, and said that the re-
cent objection came as a complete
surprise. "I don't know how the
Detroit situation will affect my
future plans," Mr. Hainsworth
said, adding that he still believes
the idea is a good one.
Until difficulties can be ironed
out, he plans to confine his roof-
top sermons to nearby Michigan
towns. No dates have been set for
future talks as yet.

gone for keeps, but he found it
two weeks later, lying in the mud
a mile and a half down the road.
Even though it celebrates its
50th birthday today, Allhouse's
shaving brush can still work itself
into a lather. True, the paint has
been worn completely off the
handle, and its bristles are two
inches shorter than they once
were. But, as Allhouse puts it,
"It's still got a lot of good shaves
left in it."
"There are only two reasons
I'm going to retire it," he explains.
"First, I figure that 50 years is
long enough for anyone to work
at the same job, and secondly, I
want to keep it to show all the
World War II vets I've heard who
claimed GI equipment wouldn't
stand up."
And will Allhouse, now 62, give
up shaving and grow a beard?
"Not on your life," he says. "I

but left again in January, 1942,
to go to Washington to become

Other Public Services
Prof. Haber also lists among
his public services such jobs as
director of the Michigan Relief
Commission, member of the ad-
visory board to revise the Social
Security Act, chairman of the
commission which drafted Mich-
igan's Unemployment Insurance
Law, membership on the Michigan
Unemployment Compensation
Commission, the Michigan Prison
Commission and many more. In
connection with this, Prof. Haber
said that "although teaching and
working with students stimulates
me, I have a strong yearning for
administrative work."
The Habers have two sons, one
14 and the other 10. Prof. Haber
indicated that as yet, neither has

The elder son, according to Prof.
H-aber', can't see how any intelli-
gent person would study anything
but engineering.
