Manipulating Michigan's tax
base could either result in an $80
million increase in state sales tax
revenue, or, conversely, in a $60
million decrease, according to Prof.
Harvey E. Brazer of the economics
As committee research director,
Prof. Brazer explained to members

Study that :
1) The insurance premium tax
could be made to yield an addi-
tional $18 million a year by apply-
ing a uniform rate of three per
cent to all segments of the in-
dustryand broadening its base.
Last year receipts from this source
totaled approximately $17,800;

If removing the exemption on
machinery is considered by the
committee, Prof. Brazer suggest-
ed that they also examine the pos-
sible effect on industry plant lo-
cation, since no other sales tax
state is as attractive to industry
on this basis as Michigan.
Approximately 40 per cent of
current business levies would be
added to taxes on industry if the
exemption were eliminated, he

Since October, the desks on the
south side of East Quad have
gradually been replaced, according
to, George Langeler, resident direc-
tor of East Quad.
. Langeler explained that the
original desks were installed in
1946 when that wing was built.
Because of the postwar shortages,
the University was niot able to
obtain large enough desks. In ad-
dition to larger desks, new lamps
are being supplied to those rooms.
The new desks, which should be
completely installed within a few
months, are more than two inches
wider than the old ones, Langeler
This will standardize all the
desks in the quad, he added.
