Reform Result of 'U'Research






Intensive research studies develop-
ed by the University's Bureau of
Government during the past 32 years
have resulted in important reforma-
tion of the State of Michigan's in-
creasingly complex governmental
Organized by the University in
recognition of the imperative need
for accurate and impartial analysis
of governmental problems, the Bur-
eau's research program is primarily
designed to assist and improve gov-
ernment in Michigan by furnishing
citizens and public administration
officers with extensive information
on leading questions in taxation and
Theoretical Projects
In general, the problems sele'cted
by the Bureau for investigation must
be timely and pressing to warrant
special study, but this does not pre-
clude projects of a more theoretical
nature which may prove of consider-
able significance in the fields of pub-
lic administration and finance.
Important studies analyzing the
various aspects of administrative or-
ganization of state government, tax-
ation, the electoral process, and lo-
cal government are indicative of the
nature of research activities con-
ducted by the Bureau in past years.
Many special projects are under-
taken at the request of state and
local officials desiring a better basis
for understanding and treating vari-
ous governmental problems. In order
to carry out this two-fold program,
the Bureau has assembled a regular
research staff and encouraged stu-
dents taking the Institute of Public
Administrationhcurriculum to serve

President Creates
Emergency Board
WASHINGTON, July 27- R) -
President Truman today created an
emergency board to investigate a dis-
pute between the railroads and Pull-
man conductors, thus staying for 60
days a strike called for 6 p.m. EST
Aug. 7.
The dispute, involving 2,700 Pull-
man conductors represented by the
Order of Railway, Conductors (Inde-
pendent) is over interpretation of a
recent wage increase.
Members of the three-man emer-

letins and pamphlets as the Michi-
gan Pamphlets and the Michigan
Governmental Studies. In contrast
to the Studies which are longer and
more, technical, the Pamphlets are
primarily a condensed analysis of an
important governmental problem.
The Bureau's most recent study, on
the reorganization of county govern-
ment is now being printed and will
be issued on or about September 15.
This project is the sequel to an earlier
investigation of county administra-

Library in Haven Hall
During the first 20 years of its
existence as a division of the poli-
tical science department, the Bureau
received only small appropriations
and utilized most of these funds in
developingda research library. Lo-
cated on the second floor of Haven
Hall, the Bureau of Government Lib-
rary now has over 25,000 books and
50,000 phamphlets which serve to
facilitate research and service activi-
ties. Although the scope of the col-

erably in recent years, the emphasis
continues to be placed on Michigan
In 1934, a broad program of re-
search became possible through a
grant of funds from the Horace H.
Rackham estate and the Bureau was
made a separate unit of the Univer-
sity under the supervision of Dr.
Harold D. Smith, who recently re-
signed as Director of the Budget for
the federal government to accept a
position of great responsibility with
the International Bank.
The present director, Prof. Robert
S. Ford, of the economics department,
was appointed in 1937. Prof. Ford
returned to the campus last semester
after three years as special advisor
on wartime problems to the Governor.
Taxation, Finance Research
Early in 1938, the Bureau received
a grant of $50,000 from the Mott
Foundation for the purpose of ex-
panding research activities in the
field of public taxation and finance.

the program provided for in this
grant was completed in 1942.

Finnish Architect Describes
Plans for 'Michigan Cities

DETROIT, July 27-A')-By 1990
Michigan's congested cities can be
pleasant clusters of small, self-con-
tained communities.
Slums, bleak and crowded streets
and kids playing in dirty alleys can
join open sewers in oblivion.
This vision is the motivation of El-
iel Saarinen's long-sighted plan for
the future development of the state.
Saarinen, who spent a year as visit-
ing professor at the University in
1924, enlisted the aid of his students
at the Cranbrook Academy of Art
some years ago in making a study
of population trends as a preliminary
to the detailed planning of Michigan
Detroit's Future Studied
The study was seized upon three
years ago by a group of Detroit archi-
tects. Using Saarinen's concept of
self-contained units, they formed a
voluntary organization to work out
the ideal for future of metropolitan
"Groups of architects in all of
Michigan's cities could be doing the
same," Saarinen said.
The original study predicted that
Michigan's population in 1990 would
be 6,250,000 with, 5,000,000 of that
number concentrated in the Detroit-
Port Huron-Flint-Saginaw-Bay City-
Lansing-Jackson areas.
"This growth," Saarinen says,
"need not be accompanied by pre-
sent-day blighted areas, traffic snarls
and intermingled factories, stores and
Interviewed recently on his depar-
ture for a summer in Finland, Saar-
inen betrayed a glowing enthusiasm
for the theme of city planning.

The remedy for the evils of urban
life, the short, energetic Saarinen
contends, is intelligent planning for
The architect is modest and re-
served. He holds his eyes half shut
as if protecting ,a deep sensitivity
from reality's shocks.
Saarinen World-Famed
Saarinen at 72 is world-famed. His
career started in Finland where he
was educated. His first work of con-
sequence, the Helsinki Railway Sta-
tion built in 1907, received wide ac-
He came to the United States in
1923 when he won second place in the
Chicago Tribune Tower competition.
In 1925 he joined the Cranbrook
His first major project in this
country was the designing of the
Cranbrook campus. His great influ-
ence of subsequent work has led ex-
perts to describe his influence on
American architecture as "inestim-]
The nucleus of Saarinen's plan for
the city of the future is a cluster of
some 200 homes around an elemen-
tary school and a business center.
In his vision, there are no high-
ways passing through -this cluster.
Four or five clusters, separated by
secondary highways, nestle around
an intermediate school.

Early Delivery
Prospects for
. -P
New Cars Slim
DETROIT, July 27-(P)-Prospects
for early delivery of a new passenger
automobile are little, if any, better
today than they were three months
ago, despite the fact that production
has crept forward steadily in recent
While output of trucks and com-
mercial units has increased to the
point where it is nearing pre-war
levels, passenger car assemblies still
are far below the volume needed to
even match currently placed orders.
Whether the backlog of unfilled
orders for passenger vehicles aggre-
gates 5,500,000 or twice that number
as some of the more optimistic of the
sales executives assert, the industry's
production chiefs cannot yet see the
point at which they can catch up
with it.
The industry as a whole undoubt-
edly will go into 1947 at least 2,000,-
000 passenger cars short of the sched-
ules set up when civilian production
was resumed a little more than a
year ago. In 1947 it comes also to
the problem of an almost industry-
wide change of models, an undertak-
ing which in normal times involves
a complete suspension. of assembly
line operations by each company for
periods varying from four to six
