tain many smaller industrial
plants because of their need for
a central location,, they can expect
to lose many major industrial
plants to the suburbs, Prof. Blazer
predicted.
Additional city-owned roads and
other transportation facilities will
cut into the property now on the1
tax rolls, he continued, and the
populatioh of core city areas is
expected to increase, further low-
ering the ,present property tax
base.
These trends are occurring at
the same time that expansion in,
surburban areas is causing an
increase in the per capita finan-,
cial needs of the central city, Prof.
Brazer explained. Suburban areas
create additional needs for streets,
fire and police protection and
other services.
Aid Needs Revision .
Prof, Blazer pointed to these
suburban needs to illustrate the
inadequacy of state aids to cities
distributed on the basis of popu-
lation. He suggested instead that
the' central cities be given broader
taxing powers..
"State aidto cities should rec-
og'nize that demands fdr services
are a function not alone of resi-
dent population, but also of popu-
lation density and the number of
non-residents served," he said.
Favors Big City Taxes
As to extended taxing powers,
Brazer said "wide taxing powers
extended to the major metropoli-
tan centers would not involve the
confusion and compliance diffi-
culties associated with sales or
income taxes imposed by, clusters
of small municipalities.
"Wide taxing powers that per-

Plan January Pubication
For Hopwood Award Novel

The first-place winner in the
major fiction division of the 1956
Hopwood writing contests willbe
published this month as a full
length novel.
"Somewhere There's Music," by
George Lea,will appear Jan. 22,
published by J.B. Lippincott Co.
It is a story of young people in
a period of adjustment.
The main character, Mike Lo-
gan, "isn't me, isn't anybody,".
Lea says, "but a lot of young
people between, say, 18 and 29.
Lea, whose home town is Sagi-
naw, attended Bay City Junior
College before transferring to the
University. He and his wife and
child now live in Chicago.
The novel, Lea's first, has been
praised by John Clellan Hplmes,
author of "Go" and the man who
coined the phrase "beat genera-
tion." He says, " 'Somewhere
There's Music' catches the talk
and ideas of young people today
as few novels so far have done."

Brazer also strongly advocated
more extensive use of service
charges, for the 'operation of rec-
reational and cultural facilities,
and in financing water and sani-
tation.
Turning to city traffic problems,
he said, "Aid should be forthcom-
Ing for transportation - not sole-
