problems relating to the use and in-
vestigation of these techniques for
research in various fields.
Open to the public are two public
lectures in the Rackham Amphi-
theatre given in connection with the
C. Z. Case, executive of a leading
photographis firm, will speak on "The
Economy of Photocopying" at 4:10
pm. Friday, and V. D. Tate, director
of photography of the National Ar-
chives, will discuss "Photography and
Research-Postwar" at 8 p.m.

graphic aids will be open for an hour
after each lecture in the East Con-
ference Room of the Rackham Build-

'Socia} Studies
Stress Habits'
Stephenson Says New
Ideas Help Students
A shift in the objectives in teach-
ing social studies was described by
Orlando W. Stephenson, associate
professor of education, in an address
to education students yesterday.
The change from presenting unre-
lated facts to the acquisition by the
pupil of habits, skills and apprecia-
tions that will enable him to study
for himself is evident, Prof. Stephen-
son said, in the textbooks of recent
years, as well as in the emphasis
on subject matter and in objectives.
"The shift," he said "has been in
the direction of using the social
studies as a means of developing the
child to the end that he may be a
well-balanced citizen of a democra-

Neither knew of the other's work.

By The Associated Press
Murder-up 20 per centj rape-up
28 per cent; robbery armed-up 81
per cent.
Cold figures mimeographed in the
Detroit Police Department for the
guidance of top officers tell the story
of crime's upswing over last year in
this industrial city of nearly two
Yes, lawlessness is on the march-
evidenced by minor as well as major
offenses. Police officials make no
Lffort to minimize that fact. Any
increase in crime is serious, they say,
but they hasten to add a word of
'The whole nation is experiencing
a postwar moral upheaval," said Jack
Harvill, deputy chief of the Detroit
Police Detective Bureau and one of
the ace plain-clothesmen on the
squad for years.

"Add to that fac, tnat Detroit grew
in population more than most cities
during the war and it's easier to ac-
count for the crime increase here."
This city has a larger "floating
population" than most others, he
added, and its assortment of races,
nationalities and sectional groups
compares with any.
In an interview Harvill calmly
reviewed the files covering the
first six months of this year com-
pared with January-June, 1945.
Murders and non-negligent man-
slaughter cases have jumped from
40 to 48, "but a couple of good
months still could keep the total be-
low last year's."
Reported rape cases have gone up
from 92 to 107, "but 15 more are not
enough to get excited about."
Robbery armed offenses have
leaped from 307 to 557--"quite
alarming, I admit, but partly be-
cause more guns are in circula-
tion." The number of unarmed
robberies has dropped from 569
to 465, he pointed out.
While their own record is relative-
ly clear, many war veterans unwit-
tingly have facilitated holdups and
other crimes in which firearms are
used, according to Harvill.
Special records are kept on
crimes committed by World War
II veterans themselves, and Har-
vill says they prove as "vicious and
false" reports that ex-servicemen
are more criminally-inclined than
Of the 2,755 veterans arrested
during the first six months of 1946
only 6 were charged with murder,
18 with robbery armed and 11 with
Harvill produced reports showing
that the number of felonies has fluc-
tuated greatly in years past. In 1942,
for example, there were only 23 mur-
ders in Detroit. The next year there
were 47, -but in 1944 the total fell
back to 34.
"Mwaybe we're just having another
of those bad years," Harvill opined.
