WHAT MAKES MICHAEL RUN?
Faber Sprints Through Year at 'U'
NAMED TO STUDY GROUP:
Haber Predicts Conflict
On Annual Wage Issue
By GAYLE GREENE I
Although his exuberant sprint-
ing recently brought Britisher
Mike Faber, brad., into uncom-
fortably close contact with a ce-
ment wall, resulting in several
stitches on his chin, Faber has al-
lowed no let up in one year virtual
run of the University.
Half the ground he has covered
on campus since his arrival in
September on a Ford Foundation
research grant in economics has
been at a trot, run or all out gal-
IT WAS JUST such spurts of
activity that highlighted a pro-
gram of philosophy, economics,
and politics at Magdelen College,
Oxford where he graduated with a
"First" (equal to our highest hon-
ors). Faber found time to excel in
"games" there and in his younger
days captained the football team
Faber's life has not been with-
out disappointments, however.
An unsuccessful attempt to
swim the Bosphorus was follow-
ed by a try at the English Chan-
nel. "After rather a brave at-
tempt, they pulled me out ex-
hausted, only 150 yards from the
shores of England, Faber re-
"By the way," he added "you
needn't mention I started from
Faber then suggested that a few
things he agreed upon before com-
mencing his interview. "First of all,
he requested, "no glamourizing,
because I don't like glamour. Well

facts, as far as possible."
He then went on to say that
he was born in London almost 24
years ago and has no birthmarks.

mused. "What have I done? What
had Keats done at 24? Well we live
longer these days," he assured him-
self, jumping up, hurdling a chair
and singing snatches of an old

"Mike may seem to be moving
in three directions at once, oc-
casionally," but according to his
roommate, Bill McIntyre, Grad.,
what seems impulsive is always
thought out. One reason he
thinks so fast may be that
his education has emphasized
thought rather than the mere
gathering of facts, McIntyre ex-
plained, while Faber ruffled
some letters on a erratically clut-
The room's complete disarray
combined with a dusty yuletide
centerpiece on the mantel indi-
cated that Faber has escaped un-
scathed from the discipline af-
forded by two years of military
service prior to entering Oxford.

FABER'S PLANS for the future
are rather vague but center, for
the immediate future, on travel.
"I want to get around the world
before June 1954," he said.
Why June 1954?
S"There's a cricket match in
Scotland, I want to play in," he
explained, shifting to the chair
at the head of the table declar-
ing: "Structure is everything."
"Hey, don't write that down,"
he asked. "Everything that's said
depends on the atmosphere and
context in which it is spoken. One
might say people take life too ser-
iously and a few minutes later one
might say as Chesterton did: "To
enjoy life is to take it seriously'
and that's true, too," he explained.
"He never waters his plant" in-
terjected his roommate. "I always
have to do it for him."
"Just say I'm a great believer
in Robert Louis Stevenson's Great
Theorem of the Livableness of
Life," Faber shouted as he sprint-
ed off to class.

Terming the guaranteed annual
wage question a "very complex is-
sue," Prof. William Haber of the
economics department predicted
that it is very likely to become the
next major area of controversy in
labor management relations.
Along with nine other leading in-
dustrial relations experts, Prof.
Haber was named this week by
UAW-CIO president Walter Reu-
ther to a special advisory panel
which will consider the annual

Thus far contributions have
amounted to only $186.28 with
the drive nearly over, she said.
This year letters to housing unit
presidents requesting their aid in
soliciting funds replaced the tra-
ditional cannisters, with little ap-
parent success. Only three men's
resident halls, one women's resi-
dence, one fraternity and one sor-
ority responded to the campaign.

Commenting on the guaranteed
wage question, Prof. Haber point-
ed out that the capacity of any in-
dustry to develop such a plan will
depend on the stability of its
markets and the regularity of its
"The extent to which a commit-
ment to pay wages on an annual
basis would provide additional in-
centive toward production and em-
ployment stabilization would also
vary among plants and industries,"
AMONG the many difficult prob-
lems which must be resolved be-
fore any annual wage plan will be
practicable are the relationship of
such a plan to unemployment in-
surance laws and the extent to
which temporary or low seniority
employees would be included, the
labor relations authority indicated.
"Basically the capacity of an
industry to pay wages on an an-
nual basis depends on its ability
to stabilize its production," he
"It would be very pleasant to
think that the last dozen years of
full employment would continue
indefinitely, but no law has yet
been passed repealing the business
cycle," he added wryly.
