Prof. Haber To Take Position
Of Advisor to Gen. Lucius Clay

By JAKE HJRWITZ
Prof. William Haber of the eco-
nomics department has been
granted a leave of absence for the
second semester of the academic
year 1947-48 to accept an ap-
pointment as adviser to General
Lucius Clay, Commander of the
American occupation forces in
Germany.
The leave was granted by the
Board of Regents at the request
of Kenneth C. Royall, Secretary
of the Army.
Leaves Soon
Prof. Haber, who will leave for
Germany with his family in mid-
January, will advise Gen. Clay on
measures for the relief of dis-
placed persons after consulting
commanders of displaced persons
camps and the displaced persons
themselves in Germany and Aus-
tria.
He will replace Judge Louis E.
Levinthal of Pennsylvania who is
returning to the United States to
resume his duties on the bench.
Extensive Experience
The appointment of Prof. Haber
was specifically requested by Gen.
Clay, who was closely associated
with Prof. Haber during his war
service as director of planning for
War Manpower Commission from
1942-1944.
Prof. Haber carries a rich back-
ground of experience to his new
position. He served as executive
director of the National Refugee
Service from 1939-1941, and after
his work with the War Manpower

PROF. WILLIAM HABER
Comni ion, he became manpower
,dviser to the director of war mo-
bil latio .
Hopeful for 1948
American authorities are hope-
ful that liberalized immigration
laws in many countries and the
end of the British mandate in
Palestine will ease the problems of
the displaced persons in 1948,
Prof. Haber said.
The task of teaching Prof.
Haber's courses in labor, among
the most sought after by students,
will be assumed by Harold Levin-
son, instructor in economics.

The City Beat
Today's Ann Arbor
News in Summary
By PHIL DAWSON
While students celebrated va-
cation, Ann Arbor life moved
along at a rapid tempo. Police,
telephone operators, snow-shovel-
ers, sales clerks' and the courts
all reported brisk activity over
the holidays.
Washtenaw County is ready to
spend $2,000,000 on a new court-
house - and is eager to spend it
as soon as possible.
The county board of supervisers
will consider bids at its meeting
next Tuesday. Members of the
building committee have decided
to , go ahead with construction
now, in spite of high building
costs, because the need is "criti-
cal."
In the midst of a pre-New Year
clean-up rush, circuit court clerks
ended 1947 with a struggle to
"keep up with the Joneses."
Three men bearing that name
pleaded guilty on separate charges
before Judge James R. Breakey,
Jr., and a fourth, Casey Jones,
dropped an appeal from an as-
sault and battery verdict.
Ann Arbor may get a new de-
partment store soon - a Chicago
firm hopes to begin remodeling
and modernizing three long-idle,
90-yeaer-old store buildings at
214, 216, and 218 S. Main.
While surveys reported builders
expect to complete one million
dwelling units in 1948, the city
engineer's office issued six build-
ing permits during vacation as
Ann Arbor construction compan-
ies began to make headway on the
housing shortage.
Construction of a newsreel
theatre is under way in Willow
Run Air Terminal, and will be
open to plane passengers late this
month, it is estimated.
Liquor sales in Michigan drop-
ped about 10 per cent in 1947, but
this is still a highly alcoholic state,
the Associated Press reports.
Only five other states exceed-
ed Michigan's 6.5 million gallon
sales record -Alabama, Iowa, New
Hampshire, North Carolina and
West Virginia.
