Special Music
Training Urged
By Prof. Colby
Music Teachers Meet
Here for Conference
Music teachers should encourage
parents to give special music train-
ing to children who are extraordi-
narily sensitive to pitch, to prevent
their becoming "disappointed sur-
geons" or "frustrated engineers."
This was the point made by Prof.
Martha G. Colby, of the psychology
department, at the Michigan Music
Teachers Association which opened
a two-day meeting here yesterday
which 100 persons attended, another
100 expected to arrive for today's
Discussing tests which can be used
to determine the musical ability of
the very young, Prof. Colby pointed
out that although no absolute test
has been devised, tests do serve the
purpose of "pointing out certain dif-
Elwyn Carter, of Western Michigan
College of Education, reported on the
results of a questionnaire as to the
value of choral groups for commer-
cial and industrial concerns, com-
menting that both employees and
employers found such groups helped
general morale, health and efficiency
and also fostered better relations
with their communities,.
The Association, meeting here un-;
der the auspices of the music school
and the department of music at
Michigan State Normal College, will
conclude its annual conference today.

FEPC Bill Will
Eliminate Race
Purpose and Activities
Of Group Explained
EDITOR'S NOTE: Despite all the pub-
licity thatrhas been given the present
petition drive for state FEPC legisla-
tion, many people, it has been re-
ported, still do not know what FEPC
is or how it operates. To clear up
this difficulty, The Daily prints the
following resume of the bill that is
being circulated.
The purpose of the Fair Employ-
ment Practices Commission is to pre-
vent the practice of limiting or de-
nying employment opportunities to
properly qualified persons by reason
of their race, creed, color or national
The act applies to any employer
who employs eight or more persons,
any employment agency, and any
labor union. Unfair employment
practices are defined as discrimina-
tion "against any employee, trainee,
apprentice or applicant for empldy-
ment in regard to his hire, tenure, or
any term, condition or privilege of
employment because of his race,
creed, color or national origin"; dis-
crimination by a labor union against
any member or applicant for member-
ship; and the publication of any help
wanted or other advertisement or the
use of any application for employ-
ment blank, "containing any specifi-
cation on limitation as to race, color,
creed or national origin, not based
upon a bona fide occupational quali-
Police Power
The act, which is deemed an exer-
cise of the state's police power, sets
up a three-member state commission
of fair employment appointed by the
Governor with senate approval.
Charges of unfair employment prac-
tices may be brought to the commis-
sion,hwhich may first attempt to set-
tle the dispute by informal methods
of persuasion and conciliation.
If no agreement can be reached,
the commission would set a date for
a formal hearing, at which the em-
ployer, labor union, or person com-
plained of shall have the right to file
an answer and to appear with coun-
Unfair Practices
If the commission finds that the
party named in the complaint has
engaged in unfair employment prac-
tices, the commission will serve "an
order to cease and desist from such
unfair employment practice and to
take such affirmative action, includ-
ing hiring or reinstatement of per-
sons with or witnout back pay, as
will effectuate the policies of this
The commission can petition the
circuit court of the county to enforce
its decision. Any persons, employers,
or labor unions, who wilfully resist
the commission can be punished by
a. fine of not more than $1,000 or by
imprisonment for not more than six
months or both.
The commission will also develop
a comprehensive educational cam-
paign to prevent discrimination.
Patient Number 600,000
A University student was the
600,000th patient to register at Uni-
versity Hospital. Raymond M. Cross-
man, a graduate law student, was the
patient and registered on Sept. 21.

Ford Lists Tax Alternatives

(Contimud from Page 1)
from the intangibles tax and the new
10 per cent liquor tax are now re-
turned to the cities, townships and
villages; their combined yield last
year amounted to $18,000,000.
The state legislature might, by

amending this law and retaining
all of this amount for state pur-
poses, reduce the anticipated loss
to $24,000,000 a year.
It has also been suggested, by Rep.
John Espie, chairman of the House
Ways and Means Committee, that
the state might place on local gov-
ernments the responsibility for the
care of relief clients. Last year the
state spent almost $5,000,000 for gen-
eral relief, and in addition matched
federal payments with $8,000,000 for
aid to dependent ch1ildren and $17,-
000,000 for old age assistance.
Finally, the state might turn to
new taxes to make up for the rev-
enue loss, Prof. Ford stated. Pro-
posals considered would probably
include an increase in the sales tax,
readoption of a property tax for
state purposes, and imposition of
a flat-rate income tax or initiating
a constitutional amendment for a
graduated income tax, he said.
To determine the general effect of
the sales tax amendment on the state
fiscal system, as well as its benefit
to the localities and school districts,
Prof. Ford. concluded, we can only
wait and see what measures the legis-
lature takes when it convenes in

the members have to spend most of
their time on studies after being
away so many years, Miss Dearnley
The association was organized
during the summer session. Since
"studies come first," it has limited
its activities to bridge parties and
similar entertainments. During reg-
istration week, the association con-
ducted an information booth for
women veterans in the Rackham
Possibly next semester when the
women veterans have taken the
academic routine in stride, the asso-
ciation may turn its attention to
problems of the campus-at-large,
Miss Dearnley said..
Average age of the association's
members is 25 and all branches of
the service are repiresented. Most are
former Army and Navy nurses and
Waves. The majority are undergrad-
uates and using their GI Bill bene-
fits to continue their education.
