Late Runs
Offenses Cause 'U'
To Act On Problemn
A fraction of one per cent of
the 3,000 students living in Wil-
low Run are jeopardizing late bus
service for the rest.
Several infractions of common
decency and one actual assault
case have prompted University of-
ficials to consider discontinuing
the 12:15 and 1:15 buses running
Friday and Saturday nights.
"Apparently students do not
realize the trouble University
officials have gone through to
provide them with transporta-
tion," one University official
He estimated that the buses run
at a $10,000 loss carrying 95,000
passengers per month. Many of
them are badly worn, necessitat-
ing costly repair and maintenance
since they cannot be replaced, he
"We get time and a half for
these runs, but when you have to
take a lot of guff from some
guys, it isn't worth it," one driv-
er asserted.
"It has just been a handful of
men. All the rest of the residents
have been swell to us," the driver
added, "no one could ask for bet-
ter people to work with than the
married students out there, but
some of those smart-guys who
haven't readjusted yet are just a
pain in the neck for everyone."
In response to'simlar complaints
from other drivers, sober students
and married inhabitants of the
Village, the University asked the
house directors to act as chaper-
ones aboard the late buses.
The incidents which prompted
this action started November 30
when a small group of men board-
ed the last bus returning to the
Village. One of the group got sick,
and the others disturbed passen-
gers with ribald songs.
An increase in the number of
incidents the following week eul-
inated in a scuffle between a1
-fifty-year-old driver and a pas-
senger. The driver was knocked
Meanwhile University officials
conferred with Ken Bissell, Willow
Run member of the Student Legis-
lature, Col. Walter B. Fariss, Uni-
versity veterans coordinator, and,
Village house directors.-
Seve ral plans of action were
proposed by the members. Sugges-
tions to use the campus police or
to get' paid students to act as1
monitors were finally discarded in
favor of the present plan which
utilizes the house directors.
Chinese Golden
Era Explamed
Dr. Lin Cites Revoltr
Against Aristocracy
The Chinese age of enlighten-
ment, which occurred between 6151
and 350 B.C., was coincident witht
the disintegration of the hierar-
chal structure, and understandably
so, Dr Lin Tungchi, Michigdnt
alumnus and professor of govern-
ment and history at the Nationalr
Futan University, China, declaredr
Speaking at a lecture jointlyk
sponsored by the history depart-

ment and the Oriental CivilizationE
Program, Dr. Lin stated that the
revolt against the aristocratic an-
tecedent gave rise to a qualitative
change in Chinese intellectual his-
tory as reflected by the philosophy
of Confucius and his followers.
This new era was one of the en-
lightened man, free and individ-
ualistic, as opposed to the group
flavor of the aristocratic man, Dr.
Lin maintained. ,
Dr. Lin will deliver the last of
his lectures on "Humanism and Be-
yond Humanism" at 4:15 p.m. to-
morrow in the Rackham Amphi-

Anrell Hall, Library
Additions Proposed
In view of the anticipated en-
rollment of 20,500 students during
the next academic year, the Uni-
versity appropriation request, now
in the hands of Dr. John Perkins,
state budget director, is expected
to exceed all previous budgets for
operating expenses and to seek
funds for further increases in
campus facilities.
Vice-President Marvin Nieluss
has estimated that the University's
requests for operating expenses
will surpass $8,500,000 for each
year of the 1947-1949 biennium.
In addition, he said that the Uni-
versity will ask funds to complete
the Angell Hall project as a center
for the literary college and to
double the size of the library. A
deficit appropriation in excess of
$1,000,000 will also be needed to
cover operation expenses of the
current year.
Committee To Visit
It is expected that a visit to the
campus by the state House Ways
and Means Committee today will
provide an occasion for the Univer -
sity administration to communi-
cate directly to the state legisla-
ture the emphatic need for addi-
tional campus construction if the
University is to maintain a su-
perior level of instruction.
The additions to Angell- Hall
and the library were included in
the $15,000,000, five-year construc-
tion program submitted to the spe-
cial legislature session last year.
Following a blanket approval of
the program, the legislature passed
an initial appropriation to start
the five educational buildings now
under construct ion.
Removals Scheduled
When completed, the Angell
Hall extension will make possible
the demolition of several of the
ancient structures dreaded by stu-
dents because of their hazards and
inadequate facilities. University
Hall, Mason hall, South Wing,
Economics and Pharmacology
Building, Romance Language
Building and Haven Hall have un-
officially been scheduled for re-
Library Director Warner G.
Rice has pointed out that both the
increase in enrollment and the
great additions made to the li-
brary's book and exhibit collec-
tions have made imperative the
expansion of the library structure.
For the past several years,.he
has observed modern developments
in library improvements-reading
room lighting, making greater
numbers of books readily accessible
and preservation of rare books--
with a view towards making the li-
brary extension the most adequate
structure possible.
Garg Still Available
Two hundred fifty additional
copies of the January Gar-
goyle are still available to stu-
dents who were unable to pur-
chase their copies yesterday.
They will be placed on sale
starting at 9 a.m. today on
campus. No person may re-
serve a copy, but a policy of
"first come, first served" will
be followed until the magazines
are sold.

Legislative Visitors
To Consider Requests
Although University officials
expect a drop in the spring semes-
ter enrolment, President Alexan-
der G. Ruthven predicted yester-
day that fall enrollment might top
all previous figures at 20,500 stu-
This while enrollment in the
spring will probably drop below
normal because of the small
number of veterans who are re-
turning, according to Vice-
President Marvin L. Niehuss, the
estimates for next September
exceed the present figure of
18,848 by 1,652. President Ruth-
ven indicated that only twice in
the University's 110 years has
an increase been shown in the
spring semester enrollment.
Present requests for admission
were canvassed in arriving at the
figure of 20,500, President Ruth-
ven said. Using this estimate,
University officials have present-
ed budget requests to the State
Budget Director which they will
discuss w iti the House Ways and
Means Committee when it visits
the campus today. President Ruth-
ven said that requests for appro-
priations to complete the current
buildings and proposed new build-
ings will also be discussed.
The Lniversity expects to be
able to meet the demands of
qualified residents who apply

priorities for Michigan veterans,

Survey Tests'
Are Discussed
Likert, Katona Speak
To lE conomics Club
Stating that m'otivational analy-
sis has proven to be a significant
device for measuring the impor-
tance of information and misin-
formation that people have, Pro-
fessors Rensis Likert and George
Katona, of the Survey Research
Center, discussed "The Sample
Question Survey as a Tool of Eco-
nomic Research" at a meeting of
the Economics Club last night.
On the basis of surveys they
conducted for the Treasury De-
partment and the Federal Reserve
Board on spending and saving pat-
terns in the United States, they
pointed out that predictions of fu-
ture patterns based on purely eco-
nomic analyses have frequently
been inadequate because of neg-
lect of "the human element."
In addition to economic causes,
such predictions, they said, must
consider motivational, attitudinal
and intention elements.
They also pointed out that an-
alyses based only on aggregative
and averaged data tell nothing of
the processes by which the infor-
mation shown are fashioned.
"They must be supplemented by
individual, microscopic data," such
as collected by Survey Research in
its area-sampling research. This,

they said, can extend the signifi-
cance and usefulness of economic
