THAT IS THE SUM that Lewis

the "gay nineties," spent during
his freshman year.

account which Hill's nephew, W.

He had the added expense of
oil for his lamp, which at the

$.98 during one year.
A SHAVE AND haircut, for
which local barber shops are now
charging up to $2.00, cost Hill

'U' Institute
Social Study
(Daily City Editor)
A newly established institute
here will make the University the
top authority in the field of social
science research.
Called the Institute for Social
Research, the new organization
combines the Survey Research
Center and the Research Center
for Group Dynamics. It will be
directed by Dr. Rensis Likert.
TWO POWERFUL tools for ap-
plying the scientific method to
social problems are linked in the
new institute according to its di-
The Survey Research group
measures human behavior and
relationships. The Group Dy-
namics people probe ways to
change this human behavior.
Integration of the two will make
possible the application of scien-
tific methods to neglected social
fields. Stressing the importance of
this work, Likert pointed out that
tremendous advances have been
made in the physical sciences dur-
ing the past 25 years while little
effort has been made to solve the
social problems created by these
technological advances.
"THIS IS MOST dramatically
emphasized in the discovery of the
atomic bomb" Likert said.
He said the new institute
would work closely with the
Phoenix Project war memorial,
which includes among its aims
the solution of problems to en-
able men to live peaceably in
the atomic age.
In the past the Survey Research
Center, operating independently,
has completed 52 studies for such
varying groups as governmental
agencies and automotive corpora-
tions. It was established in the fall
of 1946.
search group has probed fields of
labor-management conflicts, elim-
ination of racial prejudice, and
housing. The center came here
from MIT in July, 1948. \
Likert said the new institute
puts the University in the lead
in the social science research
field. Nowhere else in the world
can more experts be found in
this field, he declared,
A self-supporting group, the in-
stitute receives a small annual
budget from University funds, but
the majority of its finances come
from fees charged the government
and private corporations for stud-
ies in specific fields.
While Dr. Likert will head the
institute the survey research di-
vision will be directed by Dr. Dor-
win Cortwright, and Dr. Angus
Campbell will head the group dy-
namics division.
Benefit Dance
A March of Dimes benefit dance
will be held at 9 p.m. to 1 a.m.
tomorrow at the American Legion
Memorial Home on Main Street.
Ralph Wilson and his orchestra
will supply the music. Tickets are
$2 per couple.

Getting Wollier?
COLUMBUS, O. - Wool con-
sumption in the United States rose
from 300 million to 392 million
pounds between 1919 and 1937.
Rayon yarn leaped from 8 mil-
lion to 255 million pounds over the
same period of time.

Substantial increases in taxicab
fares may be in store for town
and campus under the provisions
of an ordinance now under con-
sideration by the City Council.
The ordinance would boost fares
by substituting metered rates for!
the blanket anywhere-in-the-city
rates now charged.
* * *
UNDER THE meter system the
rate for one person would be 25
cents for the first quarter of a
mile and five cents for each ad-
ditional quarter-mile or fraction.
There would be an additional
ten cents charged for other pas-
sengers in the same party.



What's Up in the Dorms

One solace for University users
may lie in the provision that they
will be able to hire the cab by
an hourly rate. The charge would

murder mystery with the delicate
touch, at 8:30 p.m. today in Lydia

whether he is guilty.

Greenwood, the J. Arthur Rank
presentation will be shown
