Suggest Study Room
The committee also discussed
the establishment of a special stu-'
dy room in the new Undergradu-
ate Library which the Honors
Council had studied. Another
privilege might be a lounge with
reading material available, simi-

lar to the Hopwood Room, in
which honors students could
i gather for study or discussion.
y One suggestion which gained
the approval of the steering com-
mittee members was the establish-
ing of a house for honors students.
L This house, a dwelling near cam-
pus, would be fixed up as a study
area and a lounge and would
probably have a faculty member
1, in residence.
e A special room in ,the house
would, be used to house distin-
r guished guests to the campus, and
- would provide an opportunity for
- honors students to meet noted in-
tellectuals on an informal basis.

Ever hear of the movie "It Hap-,

that repelled wood? Capitalizing,
upon this he bottled the "goo"

Editor Etches
The -first issues came .out in
1934 edited by Wilfred B. Shaw,
'04, who before that was general
secretary of the General Alumni
Association. His intricate, alert
etchings became such an institu-
tion in the magazine that they
have continued to be drawn in the
same vigorous spirit since his re-
tirement in 1950. ,
Robbins,-with' a part-time staff
of one assistant has continued the
magazine in a "non-provincial
style." The magazine's mainstay is
articles, written by the faculty,
Robbins said.
With a circulatiori of 14,500,
the magazine is passed from sub-
scribers to untold more readers.
Protocol Authority
Before his retirement as assis-
tant to the President of the-Uni-
versity, Robbins was the unoffi-
cial writer of many of the Re-
gents' resolutions and an authori-
ty on academic protocol. He came
to the University in 1912 just aft-
er receiving his doctorate in Greek
at the .University of Chicago.
Robbins, who taught Greek here
for nine years, has translated a
book by ,the Greek astronomer,
Ptolemy, and a letter written by
Columbus to Queen Isabella and
King Ferdinand.

Center Study.
Shows Health.
Businessmen evaluate employe
health programs both in terms of
increased efficiency and in terms
of employe well-being, a study
conducted by the Survey Research
Center shows.
Results of the sui'vey also indi-
cate that in firms which have no
health service program, "there is
evidence that management's con-
ception of health service is a room
where the bloody, the battered
and the bruised are carried in on
The report noted that such a
concept is a barrier to the expan-
sion of employe health service
Prepared for the Occupational"
Health Program of the United
States Public Health Service, the
survey covered firms employing
from 50 to 500 persons.
About two-fifths of the com-
panies covered had either a doc-
tor or a nurse or both.
Results showed that a doctor-
nurse team bealth, service is su-
perior to a doctor or nurse alone
even if one member of the team
is in the plant "for only a few
hours a week."
The report noted that the doc-
for and the nurse perform differ-
ent rolep in the company organi-
zation: "The doctor talks to man-
agement and get's support for
needed improvements," while the
nurse assures employes of'health
service benefits.

Tax Levels
Prof. Richard A. Musgrave of
the Economics Department said
yesterday that taxes may be
maintained at their present rates
or even increased, if necessary,
without damaging 'the long-term
soundness of our economy.
Testifying beforethe fiscal pol-
icy subcommittee of the joint
House-Senate Economic Commit-
tee in Washington D.C.. Prof.
Musgrave said that any belief the
nation has reached or exceeded
the limit of its table capacity is
"without basis in fact and' econ-:
omic analysis."
Prof. Musgrave, 'who was one of
several experts invited to outline
their views on government budge-
tary policy at the committee hear-
ing also asserted that any concern
that the nation may be near the
limit of its taxable capacity "con-
-centrates attention at not exceed-
ing the upper limit of the budget,
while disregarding the risk of fall-
ing short of the lower limit."
He warned that spending too
little for national needs can be
just as dangerous as spending too
The University economist .la-,
beled popular bi-partisan feeling
that tax reduction is imperative
for the health of the economy as
"our version of the Marxist fal-

cious as it is, should have been
permitted to interfere with meet-

Fourth International Biennial of
Contemporary Color Lithography,
held in the spring of 1956.
Nancy Hardy, "58, chairman of
the International Committee, com-
mented, "The artists represent 32
nationalities, which indicates the
world-wide interest in and prac-
tice of the medium of color litho-
graphy in recent years.
"The color lithographs generally
reflect the prevailing trends in
contemporary painting," Miss
Hardy continued. "France, which
has maintained the lead in color
lithography since the time of Tou-
louse-Lautrec, is represented along
with Spain, Italy, Germany, Great
Britain, the Netherlands, China,
Japan, Turkey, South Africa and
many others.
"This is only one form of art
which emphasizes a common herit-
age of many different peoples and
suggests a strong bond of common
interests to bind our 'family of
man,' Miss Hardy concluded.

Bell Praises'
City League
In New Book.
George A. Bell, formerly of, the
University's Institute of Public
Administration,. commends the
Michigan Municipal' League, an
organization which represents
municipal interests in the state
legislature, in his recent book.
"The Michigan M u n i c i p a 1
League: An Analysis of Policies
and Services" des cr i b e s the
League, which has its headquar-
ters in Ann Arbor, as an "organ-
ization comprising most of the
cities and villages in the state."'
In the book, Bell states, "Within
the framework of its practical
limitations, the Michigan Muni-
cipal League has served Its mem-
bers very well."
e e commends the organization
for its actions in upholding the
principle of home rule, maintain-
ing the property tax, successfully
fighting for more adequate shar-
ing of highway revenues, and
helping to preserve a liberal
amount of state-collected, locally-
shared taxes.It also acts as a
clearing house for information on
municipal problems.
Bell concluded, "Upon total
evaluataion, it must be concluded
that the League has been an im-
portant force in the promotion of
better municipal government. Not
always, to be sure, does the League
seek the theoretically best solu-
tion, but it usually seeks a politi-
cally. obtainable end."
