Positions open include the 12
posts on the executive boardand

dential aspirants must be second

$800,000 every month in Uni-
versity purchases.
Food Tops List
Of this amount, more is spent
on food than on any other general
item of purchase. Steam coal,
however, leads the list of expendi-
tures for any single item pur-
chased.
"It might be interesting to note
that in 1932-33 the University paid
40 cents per ton at the mines for
the same quality of steam coal
which it is now buying at $4.85 per
ton," Bulbick remarked. Roughly
50.000 tons of coal are consumed
annually at the power plant.
T h e purchasing department
handles orders for everything from
paper clips to such items as a new
Schmidt type telescope mount, the
optical system and dome of which
ran to about $165,000.
Centralization
This year some 250 purchase or-
ders are being handled each day.
In order to handle this volume of
business most efficiently, the Uni-
versity uses a centralized purchas-
ing organization, which was estab-
lished in 1910.
The staff of this organization
includes buyers; purchase order
typists; a follow-up group; an in-
voice-voucher audit group and a
group which checks telephone, tel-
egraph and travel vouchers. The
total number of persons employed
on the staff is 38.
Bulbick jointed the staff as As-
sistant Purchasing Agent in 1921.
He has been Purchasing Agent
since 1931.

The urgent necessity for re-
organization of the federal gov-
ernment was emphasized by Prof.
James K. Pollock, of the political
science department, in an address
delivered in Washington yester-
day.
Prof. Pollock, a member of the
Commission on the Organization
of the Executive Branch, outlined
the work of the Commission in his
speech before a luncheon meeting
of the American Society for Pub-
lic Administration. The Commis-
sion, which is headed by Herbert,
Hoover, has been authorized by
Congress.
Declines Prediction
"If our democracy is to function
effectively both at home and
abroad, we must reorganize," Prof.
Pollock said. He declined to pre-
dict exactly what wouldhappen
if reorganization did not take
place, but he said that "the gov-
ernment . . . must reorganize or
flounder."
Referring to the present govern-
ment as a "congressional-presi-
dential-bureaucracy," Prof. Pol-
lock said that bureaucracy pure
and simple is probably the worst
form of government possible.
'Can Easily Deteriorate
"On the other hand," he add-
ed "congressional - presidential- -
bureaucy can be a very good form
of government, but it can easily
deteriorate. I usethe word bu-
reaucy to remind us of the dan-
gers of decline and deterioration
that are always present.
"It is particularly importantl
now that we be aware of these
dangers because in the months
and years to come. more will de-
pend upon the efficiency of our
administrative services than on
almost anything else."
Profs. John W. Lederle and C.
Ferrel Heady, also of the political
science department, are also at-
tending the ASPA conference.
P'ofs. Pollock will return to Ann
Arbor today, while Profs. Heady
and Lederle will remain in Wash-
ington until next week.

The Union recorder, however,

One group of five sang "Four

themselves on a harmonica. The

To find out just who uses these

and waited.
After a fruitless half-hour wait
at the League, they discovered
that the machine had been broken
by an over-enthusiastic tonsorial

Ability to learn is not lost in
the later decades of life, Dr. Wil-
ma T. Donahue, director of the
University Bureau of Psychologi-
cal Services, has pointed out.
Although the rate of learning
may be slower, she said, "no one
can 'retire his mind."
But there are few changes in
fundamental interests after the
age of 25, Dr. Donahue noted. "As
a person becomes older he prefers
passive activities and also activi-
ties which he can carry out alone
or with one or two people."
Increasing age does bring some
changes in personality, she added,
particularly an increase in con-
servation and resistance to chang-
ing beliefs. Age also heightens in-

Older persor are usually bet-

younger people, Dr. Donahue ex-
plained: "There is less job turn-

also less desire for promotion."
Cultivation of outside interests
and hobbies which can be carried
on after retirement helps the older
person to "live in the present,,"
she said.
