Professor Marcus L. Plant of
the Law School is an "activities
man" although he teaches in the
fields of Torts-personal and prop-
erty injury-and commercial law.
he has found time for a wide
variety of related interests and
Of unusual interest is his mem-
bership on the Governor's Work-
men's Compensation Study Com-
mission, a post which he has held
since September 1954.
The purpose of the Commission,
according to Prof. Plant, is to
study Workmen's Compensation
Law and advise the governor and
the legislature on any changes
that may need to be made in them.
"As a result of the Commission's
activities, Michigan now has the
most advanced and effective ad-
ministrative setup in the country
for carrying out the provisions of
the law," he said.
Plant's Explanation
Prof. Plant explained that over
a year ago the legislature, acting;
on the recommendations of the
Commission, abolished the Work-
men's Compensation Commission,
which previously both administered
the law and sat as a body of ap-
This organization, "typical of
the old fashioned administrative
tribunals," was replaced oy a De-
partment of Workmen's Compen-
sation, with an administrative
director and a separate Appeal
Prof. Plant feels that work of
this nature, though carried on out-
side classes, is of considerable
value to professors where their
teaching is concerned. This is cer-
tainly true in his own case, be-
cause he teaches Workmen's Com-
pensation Law.
Active in Big Ten
On campus he is perhaps best
known as Michigan's faculty rep-
resentative to the Big Ten Athletic
Conference, of which he is Secre-
tary. Here at the University he is
Secretary of the Board in Control
of Intercollegiate Athletics, having
served in this position for eight
Prof. Plant is also probably
familiar to many students outside
the Law School as a lecturer. He
and Prof. Burke Shartel conduct
the Medical School's senior course
in Medical Jurisprudence and Prof.
Plant performs a similar function
for the School of Nursing.
Every year or so he speaks to
The Daily staff on the subject of

F-100 America's first operational supersonic fighter

libel. This topic may be of some
practical value, Prof. Plant ob-
served, since those in charge of
a school newspaper can be sued for
defamation. Even as sedate a
publication as a university law
review may occasionally run into
difficulties in this area, he said.
Aid To Teaching
All of his varied professional
activities prove useful in his class-
es, he believes. In addition to his
experience on the Governor's
Workmen's Compensation Study

Commission, Prof. Plant cited his
work with the State Bar Associa-
tion as being generally helpful in
his teaching of law.
Moreover, he said he considiered
it worthwhile to maintain contact,
'.ith groups and organizations out-
side the legal field, for it is in this
way that a law teacher can keep
current on the live problems that
are always arising.j
"It keeps you from being an
ivory tower man," he mused.-

Mathematics is an ancient but ever-advancing science that contains many
forms. It shouldn't surprise you then that it took some time before John
Jackson discovered the one brand of mathematics that seemed custom-
tailored to his ability and temperament. John is an Applied Science Repre.
sentative, working out of the IBM office at 122 East 42nd Street, N. Y. C.


First of all, what's it all about? What
does a fellow like John Jackson do
all day? In his own words, "I keep
in touch with the executives of many
different companies-advising them
on the use of their IBM electronic
data processing computers. I person-
ally consult with these customers,
and analyze their scientific and tech-
nical problems for solution by IBM.
Occasionally, I'm asked to write
papers, and give talks and demon-
strations on electronic computing.
All in all, it's pretty fascinating .. .
something new pops up every day."
In other words, John is a full-fledged
computing expert, a consultant ..
and a very important person in this

The aircraft people decided that they
couldn't afford to wait that long, so
they called in IBM. After discussion
with top executives, John helped to

mathematical background in both of
those areas. It was not until he was
interviewed by IBM that field com-
puting whetted his scientific appetite.
A few months later, John launched
his own IBM career as an Applied
Science trainee.
Promotionwise, John has come a
long way since that time. He's now

Since the IBM laboratories are
always devising easier and faster ways
to solve the problems of science, gov-
ernment, and industry, an Applied
Science Representative can never say
he's learned his job and that's the
end of it. At least once every two
months, he attends seminars to be
updated on the latest developments in

ally, a customer may tie himself in
