governing body. A second act two
days later moved the Universitiy
from Detroit to its present site.
A "UNIVERSITY OF Michi-
gan" was established before Mich-
igan became a state, in 1817, and
four years later changed its name
from Latin to English. But these
two schools did not teach collegi-
Besides the various alumni

Tells of British
Nationalization of British indu-
try has come about becaue pri-
vate industry failed to keep in
touch with events outside Great
Britain, according to Norman H.
Burfitt, labor advisor to the Brit-
ish consulate-general in London.
In a recent address to the Ann
Arbor chapter of the American
Veterans Committee, Burfitt
pointed out that before any Eng-
lish industry can be nationalized
it must fulfill these conditions.
TIlE INDUSTRY must be of
key importance. It must have been
inefficient in the past. A large
capital sum must be needed.
The labor advisor, now work-
ing in the Detroit consulate of-
fice, mentioned that stockbol-
ders in nationalized industries
were compensated party in cash,
partly in government bonds.
When asked about the mechan-
ics of English industries, he said
"manufacturing concerns now
functioning in Great Britain are
actually run by a board of con-
trols composed of specialists in the
nationalizing industry field."
