sidered in the course.

Fund Goal
The Inter-cooperative Council is
nearing its goal of $5,000, in the
fund drive for repairs of their new-
ly-acquired house at 803 E. King-
sley.
The money, when raised, will be
used to buy a fire escape for the
third floor, partitioning for several
of the apartments, plumbing fix-
tures, electrical fixtures and some
furniture.
* * *
OVER 50 PEOPLE have pledged
$4,000, and $3,000 has already been
collected. Pledges range from $10
to $1,000. The benefactors have a
choice of charging 3 per cent in-
terest on the money they give, or
they can give it free of charge. The
loans will reach maturity in 3 to
5 years, and one loan has a ma-
turity date in 1999,
The drive is keyed mostly to
present co-opers, ex co-op mem-
bers, and friends. Stefan Vail,
Grad., the chairman of the drive,
feels that if members contribute
to the drive, their interest in
co-ops will cause them to put
the interest on their loans back
into the co-ops, and lower inter-
est rates can be charged. With
this plan, the ICChopes to elim-
inate the $2,000 paid out yearly
to banks and non-members.

American consumers now regard
the future with less confidence
than a year ago, said Rensis Lik-
ert, Director of the University In-
stitute of Social Research, in
Washington, D.C., yesterday.
Contributing to a panel discus-
sion on. "The Consumption Out-
look and Implications for Federal
Economic Policy" conducted by
the Joint Congressional Commit-
tee on the Economic Report, he
added that consumers consider the
present as a fairly good time to
Banquet Slated
By Lane Hall
In observance of National
Brotherhood Week, Lane Hall will
sponsor a banquet at 6 p.m., Feb.
16 in the recreational room of Lane
Hall, and workshops on Feb. 16-
18.
The celebration of the diversi-
ties of cultures, races, religions,
and nations is the theme of the
banquet where J. Oscar Lee, Chair-
man of the Race and Culture De-
partment of 'the National Council
of Churches will speak on "The
Status of Human Relations in the
Nations."
In addition to his talk, the Mad-
rigal Singers will perform. Tickets
are $1 for students and $1.50 for
all others.
The workshops, designed for all
University students and staff,
have as their theme "Techniques
in Bettering Human Relations."

make large postponable purchases.
LICKERT said that consumers
with above average incomes were
more optimistic than those with
lower incomes and that only those
in the higher income groups felt
that "now" was a good time to
buy.
"Those income groups who
have the greatest purchasing
power are, therefore, those
whose economic outlook is most
likely to lead them to maintain
substantial purchases," he sum-
mized.
In his report, Likert cited much
data from Consumer Finance Sur-
veys made by the Survey Research
Center, a division of the Institute
for Social Research, for the Fed-
eral Reserve Board.
"These Consumer Finance Sur-
veys have shown that consumers
behave differently from what the
traditional economic assumptions
would indicate," Likert told the
panel.

HE CITED predominant pessi-
mism in 1949 of businessmen, gov-
ernment officials, and economists
which contrasted directly to the
more oitimistic conclusions of the
1949 Survey of Consumer Finance
report that indicated intentions to
buy and was correct.
Motivational data as well as
economic data is needed to accu-
rately predict consumer spending.
Likert explained, "Consumers must
not only have economic resources
in order to spend but they must

Prize Play
Dramatizes
Police Life
"Detective Story. a play by Pu-
litzer Prize-winner Sidney King-
sley, will be presented by the Stu-
dent Players Feb. 17-20 at Lydia
Mendelssohn Theater.
The play had its genesis in a
phrase often used in speeches by
Gen. George C. Marshall while he
was Secretary of State-"the po-
lice state."
Once this phrase had engaged
the 'famous playwright's imagina-
tion, according to an interview
with him in the New York Times
just before his plays scored its pot-
able hit on Broadway, he visualized
a microcosm of the police state in
one of our police stations.
Kingsley spent nearly a year
hobnobbing with policemen, de-
tectives and prosecutig attor-
neys in New York, and then
wrote his play about the. uses
and abuses of force in an imag-
inary "Twenty-first Precinct"
and by implication in all human
society.
All the action takes place in one
big setting, the detectives' squad-
room of a station-house.
Kingsley has said, "I have tried
to give the audience an impression
of looking at a great panoramic
slice of life - tragic and comic,
brainless and thoughtful, ribald
and innocent, all the aspects of
life seen in a police station. From
that, I hope, I envoke in the audi-
ence a feeling and understanding
of the very great need to keep po-
lice power out of the hands of
dangerous men.
Posten Speaks
on New Public
Health Concept
Dr. Rich rd Posten of the Uni-
versity o Southern Illinois chal-
lenged public health officials and
students to "shake off the tradi-
tional limitations of the profes-
sion and to take the leadership in
rebuilding real and vital commun-
ity life."
Speaking at the John Sundwall
Memorial Lecture, Dr. Posten trac-
ed the change and destruction of
communities effected by our in-
distrial and technological society.
He added that public health
officials can no longer simply
take "health" out of the whole
social context but must widen
their scope to contend with the
entire fabric and patern of so-
ciet.
Allowing "the profession to be-
come an end instead of serving as
a means dedicated to the welfare
of man and society" was a danger
also cited. Dr. Posten said that the
question, "How can we create a
social framework in which man
will be motivated to regard human
values?" must be faced.
Read To Discuss
Painting Conflict
"The Fundamental Conflict in
Modrn Art" will be' discussed by
Sir Herbert Read, world-renown-
ed literary and art critic, at 4:15
p.m. tomorrow in Aud. A, Angell
Hall.
Read's experience in art and lit-
erary criticism includes the post

as assistant principal, His Majes-
ty's Treasury, 1919-22; assistant
keeper, Victoria and Albert Mu-
seum, 1922-31; professor of fine
arts, University of Edinburgh,
1931-33 and lecturer in art, Uni-
versity of Liverpool, 1935-36.
The lecture, sponsored by the
