Search for Parking Space Alters Career

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the fifth in
a weekly series dealing with faculty .
T. Hawley Tapping, editor of the
Michigan Alumnus and General Sec-
retary of the Alumni Association,
started out as a lawyer and ended up
a newspaperman only because he
couldn't find a parking space.
It all started out 30 years 4go when
Tapping, fresh out of the University
law school, went downtown to an-
swer an add for clerk in a law firm.
Offering $50 a Month
"They were offering the astound-
ing sum of $50 a month," he relates.
"When I got downtown, I couldn't
find a parking space in front of the
building the law firm was in and I
had to park in front of a newspaper
Newspaper work suited young Tap-
ping just fine, but when the syndi-
cate called him back to the home of-
fice, he had a change of heart.
"I decided I wanted'to stay in Ann
Arbor," he says, "and took a job with
Pi Tau Pi Sigma
Chapter Reactivated
Pi Tau Pi Sigma, the local chapter
of the national honorary Signal
Corps fraternity, has been reactivat-
ed on campus.
The officers of the ' fraternity,
whose purpose is to carry out an ac-
tive social and technical program, are
William S. Squire, of Huntington,
W.Va., president, H. Henry Keskitalo,
of Republic, Mich., vice-president,
and Ralph E. Schroeder, of Wyan-
dotte, secretary-treasurer. Major
Howard E. Porter, professor of the
Signal Corps unit, is the faculty ad-

the Alumni Association as field sec-
Since then Tapping has left Ann
Arbor more than 2,000 times on liai-
son tours to the 200 Michigan Alumni

Clubs in the United States-but he
hasn't minded it a bit. He always
comes back.
Will Visit Cuba
These treks cover about 10,000
miles each year, he estimates. This
year for the first time, he's going to
visit an Alumni Club in Cuba.
"They've introduced me as every-
thing from President of the Uni-
versity to doctor or professor," he
says cheerfully, "but I never denied
one of them."
In addition to directing the Alumni
Association and editing the Alumnus,
Tapping meets an average of three
old grads a day in his basement of-
fice at Alumni Memorial Hall. "They
try me as a last resort," he says, "and

I try to direct them to the right peo-
ple as quickly as possible."
Tapping set a minor record in his
undergraduate days at Michigan by
corresponding for 24 newspapers at
once. Today he has a staff of nine as-
sisting him. Assuming that these
young are anything like the human
dynamo that Tapping was, it gives
his staff a potential of 216 (9x24).
He is a great "joiner." One time
national president of Sigma Delta
Chi, honorary journalistic fraternity,
he is also a member of Toastmasters,
Michigamua, Owls, Griffins, Mimes,
Archons, Scabbard and Blade and
scores of others.
Tapping's favorite, though, is the
"I Met My Wife on State Street
Club," a select little group formed by
himself and two other alumni.
"It's a very exclusive club," he says,
'although we're not exactly a lobby-
ing force as yet."

Also Protect
The 60 per cent of the campus
population which was immunized
against influenza last week will act
as a barrier against an epidemic
among the other 40 per cent.
In any mass vaccination, though
researchers are not prepared to state
exact percentages needed for abso-
lute prevention of epidemics, it has
been definitely proven that vaccinat-
ed members of the population act as
buffers to the transmission of the
disease among the unvaccinated.
Dr. Margaret Bell, who directed
the program carried out during the
past week, was very pleased with the
outcome of the program, saying that
those vaccinated "should present a
splendid block" against any influ-
enza epidemic on the campus within
eight months to a year's time. Influ-
enza A, which strikes in epidemic in-
tensity every two or three years, is
the type expected this year by pub-
lic health officials throughout the
Total figures on the mass immuni-
zation show that approximately 13,-
000 out of 23,000 campus people par-
ticipated in the program. The fig-
ures break down to about 11,000 stu-
dents and 2,000 faculty and person-
If there is any incidence of influ-
enza among the vaccinated portion
of the campus population, Dr. Bell
said, it will be a very mild form of
the disease-they are definitely pro-
tected against severe attack.
She cited the work of the nurses'
aides, under the direction of Mrs.
Bradley Patton, the Grey Ladies, un-
der the direction of Mrs. Robert Hud-
son, and medical students whose vol-
untary work on the program "made
the set up work perfectly."

Reform of income tax legislation
and administration as one step to-
ward business stabilization was advo-
cated yesterday by Edward W. Wil-
cox, president of the American Insti-
tute of Accounting.
Wilcox spoke at a meeting of the
University Accounting Cbnference,
where businessmen from throughout
the state also heard addresses by
Prof. Clare E. Griffin, of the business
administration school, Prof. George
R. Husband, of Wayne University,
and Carman Blough, director of re-
search of the American Institute of
"Defects and complications in our
income tax laws tend to divert busi-
ness leadership from the problems of
efficient organization, operation and
production to considerations of tax
avoidance," Wilcox charged.

A plea for a return of 19th cen-
tury liberalism, with its emphasis
upon the rights of the individual,
was made by Prof. Griffin in his ad-
dress before the accountants.
A program of liberalism in what
Prof. Griffin termed its "traditional
meaning of standing for the rights
of the individual as opposed to op-
pression by group power," would call
for a lowering of trade barriers and
a reduction of monopoly power, he
said, wherever and in whatever form
it exists.

Association will hold a combination
