Future Legal Issues Will Be
Studied By New Tax Institute



Married citizens of Michigan
may find the new community tax
law advantageous. but the act
spells problems for future lawyers
of the state.
In an effort to clarify a totally
different notion in communal
property, the Law School is spon-
soriny the Community Tax Insti-
tute, to continue from Dec. 1
through 6, in Hutchins Hall.
Union Calls for
Student Talent
Make Plans To Hold
Intermission Shows
Student talent is being paged
by the Michigan Union.
All men and women students
who wish to participate in a week-
ly 15-minute show to be given
during intermission at the regular
Union dance every Saturday night
are requested to sign up immedi-
ately for auditions, Keith Jordan,
chairman of the Union social com-
mittee announced yesterday.
Individuals or groups of stu-
dents with a talent for singing or
dancing interested in this oppor-
tunity to perform before large
audiences may report to the Ui-
ion student offices anytime be-
tween 3 and 5 p.m. on Monday
through Friday.
Applicants may also call Bill
Curry at 2-3256 or Bob Perrin andj
Al Sosin at 4211.

Speaking to University law stu-
dents on problems of sale, lia-
bility, divorce and death under the
new state law, will be Prof. Wil-
liam E. Burby, of the Unifersity
of Southern California. He will
speak at 4:15 Monday through
Friday afternoons, in Rm.. 100
Hutchins Hall.
Prof. Burby will be joined by
other tax law experts on Satur-
day, Dec. 6, for an all-day dis-
cussion of the new Michigan law
with members of the state bar as-
sociation attending. Those joining
him are Prof. Paul G. Kauper,
and Paul M. Trigg, Adrian W.
DeWind, and William Coit Allee,
practicing attorneys.
The concept of community
property between husband and
wife, whereby the wife has an
equal share in the husband's
earnings and material possessions,
is a fairly new one. Only 13 states
have laws providing for commun-
ity property, as it is not part of
the English Common Law where-
on most of our laws are based. As
such, it gives married persons
some advantage in figuring in-
come tax exemptions.

This increased interest is re-
flected in the number of students
enrolled in such courses, in the
number of students concentrating
in psychology and in the number
of graduate students in psychol-
The tremendous increase in en-
rollment can be attributed to a
new popular interest in the sub-
ject, resulting from the student's
experiences with psychology dur-
ing the war years, according to
Prof. D. G. Marquis, chairman of
the department. The greatly en-
larged departmental staff and re-
organization of some courses also
attracted student interest, he as-
Upward Spiral
Enrollment in psychology
courses has spiraled upwards
from a pre-war average of 3,500
students in such classes during
the school year to the present
staggering, total of 7,800 pupils.
The number of psychology concen-
trates has doubled, and there are
six times as many students study-
ing for their doctoral degrees here.
One particularly popular course
which was introduced last year in
Psychology 41, the Psychology of
Interpersonal Relations. It is de-
signed to give the student an un-
derstanding of the dynamic psy-
chological principles which oper-
ate in the social life of personal
relationships in the home, school,
and community. Every semester
the maximum of 450 students in
the course has been reached early
in the registration schedule.
Increased Popularity
A growth in the research pro-
gram sponsored by the depart-
ment is a major reason for its in-
creased popularity with graduate
students. The establishment of the
Survey Research Center was a big
impetus, as it provides facilities
for social and economic research,
and for student training in survey
Another important project is
the continuation by Prof. N.R.F.
Maier of his series of animal re-
searches on the mechanisms of
abnormal behavior resulting from
frustration. One of his previous
experiments with rats 'in a maze
has been widely used as an illus-
tration of animal intelligence.
Evaluate Merits
Currently under the conduction
of Prof. Marquis and Dr. Harold
Guetzkow is a study of the ad-
ministrative conference, in an at-
tempt to evaluate its merits and
improve its effectiveness. This
project, along with that of the
Vision-Research Laboratory, is
supported by government funds of
close to $100,000 a year.
A couple of years ago students
evaluated their instructors in the
elementary psychology courses
and on the basis of their opinions,
the teaching of the courses were
An exceptionally fine staff, both
in teaching and research, and the
stimulus of a nation-wide interest
in psychology, have led students tc
crowd these classes to capacity.

The Western Pine Association

close to 100.000,000 board feet in

With some areas short of cer-
