Adcock, Tells
Of, Struggles
Within Rome
The slow fusion of the patrician
aristocracy and plebeian gentry,
leading to a new mobility, was a
major factor in keeping the two
groups from becoming "states
within a state" in the Roman Re-
public, Prof. Frank E. Adcock of
Cambridge University, England,
said yesterday.
In the second of the current
series of Thomas Spencer Jerome
Lectures, Prof. Adcock noted that
the institution of the tribunate,
and the election of one executive
magistrate from each group, also
kept the 'state from developing
along sharp class lines for several
After the patricians led the re-
volt against the Etruscan 'kings
in the late Sixth Century B.C.,
they asserted their claim to lead-
ership through the Senate, Prof.
Adcock said. In time, however, the
plebeians in the assembly of all
able-bodied fighting men came to
acquire a measure of power in
government. In this, the Tribunes,
the defenders of the plebeians,
were largely instrumental.
Within a century of the expul-
sion of the kings, the patricians
recognized the growing power of
the plebeians, and permitted them
one of the two executive magistra-
cies each year. Prof. Adcock termed
this "an act of self-abnegation on,
the part of the patricians."
At the same time, the peasantry:
in the area around Rome, Prof.
Adcock said, were gaining a share
in the government through a spe-
cial vote-counting system. "The
peasantry, therefore," Prof. Adcock
said, smiling, "could make their
votes count for a great deal, if
enough of them were willing to
walk to Rome and vote."

Haber Sees Railroad Unemployment

St udent A
To Be To
Of MeetiE

Prediction of a continuing down-
ward employment trend in the'
railroad industry and methodsof
meeting this threat have been
given in a new book by Prof.
William Haber of the economics
In the book, "Maintenance of
Way Employment on United States
Railroads," he notes a steady de-
cline in railroad employmenttsince
1946, "primarily as a result of
mechanization, including automa-
tion of some types of operation."
Because "automation and more
rapid mechanization are becoming
of general concern," the economist
says, "the steps suggested to reduce
the effects of technological .un-
employment in this industry (rail-
roads) may have general applica-
Published by Union
The study has been published by
the Brotherhood of Maintenance
of Way Employees, at whose re-
quest it was made.
Six of the recommendations deal
with job displacements caused by
changes in Machinery and methods
in maintenance of way operations.
These are:
1) Notice by railroad manage-
ment and joint consultation be-
tween the carrier (railroad) and
the Brotherhood should precede
introduction of new methods or
Preferential Hiring
2) Current maintenance 'of way
employees should be given prefer-
ence in biddin for new positions
within the sane company and in
getting necessary training for such
openings on company time at com-
pany expense.
3) Prompt, effective, and appro-
priate reclassificaton of new jobs
and their salary scales should be
determined by joint agreement of
the railroads and the union.
4) Railroads should compensate

workers for any deterioration in
job conditions, particularly for the
extra travel and away-from-home
living required of specialized,
highly mechanized maintenance
Severence Pay
5) Regular maintenance of way
men who have been displaced
should have preferential re-em-
ployment rights in other crafts
and classes, and on other railroads.
6) Regular maintenance of way
employees whose separation can-
not be avoided should receive dis-
placement compensation or sever-
ance pay, extending the benfits
already established by policies of
the Interstate Commerce Commis-
sion and agreements between the
union and the railroads.
Prof. Haber has these recom-
mendations on short-term, cycli-
cal variations in employment. .
Establish Work Guarantees
1) Establishment of minimum
individual work guarantees, so that
any person hired or recalled to
work would be assured a minimum
expectation of steady employment
and income.
2) Start of supplemental unem-
ployment plans or, as an alterna-
tive, expansion of the public Rail-
road Unemployment Insurance

3) Joint study of short-term in-
stability, especially in relation to
maximizing the available work
during seasonal lows.
Defer Maintenance
In the book, Prof. Haber says
that deferring maintenance, which
can be done within wide limits
without immediately endangering
safety, is a major cause of short-
term fluctuations in unemploy-
By stabilizing maintenance oper-
ations, the authors say, railroads
can 1) achieve long-term econo-
mies by planning on the presump-
tive life of materials rather than
repairing or replacing them only
as tests show this is necessary.
Can Save Money
2) Realize important saving by
doing maintenance work in periods
of light rather than heavy rail
3) Make more efficient use of
mechanized equipment.
Co-authors of the book with
Prof. Haber are Prof. John J.
Carrol of St. Lawrence University,
Prof. Mark L. Kahn of Wayne
State University, and Prof. Merton
J. Peck of Harvard University. A
forward to the text is authored by

PROF. SIMES-"Mr. Future Interests" is the name -applied to
this Law School professor because of his research work in the
field of future interests. Simes has written a bookshelf of volumes
on this field and related subjects.

it ,especially the younger men in
the field," he said firmly.
One of -his largest research,
projects led to the three volume
"Law of Future Interests" pub-
lished in 1936, and Prof. Simes
was the co-author of the four
volume revised edition which ap-
peared in- 1952.
Developed Probate Code
His writings hiave also included
numerous articles in the Michi-

gan, Harvard and Yale Law Re-
views, and in other periodicals.
Another of his large projects
was serving as draftsman of the
Model Probate Code developed by
the American Bar Association.
Parts of this law code have now
been adopted in many states.
Among the honors Prof. Simes
has received is the Cooley Lec-{
tureship which goes each year to
an outstanding member of the
bar. His 'lectures on "Public Pol-
icy and the Dead Hand" have
been published with the others in

Simes will continue with his re-
search. He will undertake a proj-
ect supported by the Law School
and the American! Bar Found'a-
tion to study the improvement of

hopes to prepare publicatiols and
legislation on 'the subject. '
After receiving his education at

been revised by Jonathon A. Sles-
singer af-ter a lapse of nearly ten
years since the club was disbanded
around 1947.
Mr. Slesinger has recently made
trips to Purdue University and the
University of Illinois to visit their
clubs and study their organization.

The University of Illinois reports
that a Model Education Practices
Standards statement has b e e n
adopted by the student senate.
The policy statement is designed
to prevent discrimination due to
race, creed, or national origin in
such areas as admissions, scholar-
ships, classroom procedures, stu-
dent teacher training, college em-
ployment policies, student place-
ment, social organizations, campus
housing, health facilities, physical
education, and recreation.
It is designed as-a statement of
policy and a guide to action.

"Men Veto Chastity" is the in-
triguing headline appearing in the
University of Toronto's newspaper,
Actually an overwhelming ma-
jority of a literarysociety approved
the proposal that "Chastity is
Outmoded." Proponents of the mo-
tion stated that ". . . chasty is
an artificial virtue imposed on
society." They also stated that the
verse, "Little Miss Muffet," repre-
sents an overly-chaste woman and
the spider,, a man in this case, "the
apostle of our age."
The opposition maintained chas-
tity makes women more attractive

society continues to uphold
churches that support chastity as

"Anti - Intellectualism, Medioc-
rity Characterize Student."-
Taken from the Trinity Tripod
of Trinity College, the article says
the intensity of our intellectual
curiosity can be seen in;the sniall
numbers of students turning out
to _hear authorities on various
topics and the large number who
pay to see second-run movies.
The danger is nationwide in
scope. Everything in life is greatly
simplified in terms of short slogans
by such teachers as Norman Vin-
cent Peale and the Reader's Digest.

The author further states that
three measures could aid in a cure
for "anti - intellectualism." First,
departmental oral and written
comprehensive examinations could
be given in the major field of each
student. Second, an honors system
in which competent students could
do advanced work by the tutorial
or seminar method, and third, a
rigorous re-evaluation of the fra-
ternity systemare suggested.

A raise in the standards of ad-
mission, higher grade standards,
and improved student advisement
procedures are being put into effect
this semester at Roosevelt Univer-
sity in Chicago.
The new policies are designed to
raise the overall standards of the
university until the student body
will be well qualified and able to
take advantage of the opportunity
afforded them by a scholastically
high university.
