Vegetarian Claims Meat Causes World Troubles
* * ** * *4*




Garr Osterhouse, a tall, hearty,
bronzed man with long white hair
and a straggly white beard, who
left the Netherlands fifty years
ago and now lives in Kalamazoo,
is a celery seller who really puts
his heart in his work.
Osterhouse, whose deceptively
youthful energy brings him to Ann
Arbor several times a week, has
been a vegetarian for the past 30
of his 73 years.
"I'VE SEEN HOW meat makes
lions and tigers angry," Oster-
house explained. "In the army
they feed the soldiers large
amounts of meat so that they will
become angry and fight better.
It is the lambs who eat grass that
are peaceful. As long as people
refuse to realize this, we will con-
tinue to have wars," he said.
The flowing hair and beard,
which provide his wrinkled face
with the appearance of an old
world sage, and the practice of
vegetarianism, are an outgrowth
of an event which entirely
changed the life of the former
Dutch sailor. Ever since his con-
version 30 years ago, he has
neither eaten meat, fish nor
chicken nor drunk coffee, tea
nor alcoholic beverages.
"Before, I ignored God's teach-
ings. Now I follow them. I am no
longer able to hate. If men were
not capable of hating there would
be no war," Osterhouse said.
Each morning, he drives to De-
troit to sell his celery and then
fills his truck with other produce
and delivers it to markets and res-
taurants in the towns on the road
back to Kalamazoo.
He drives a black and silver
truck on which are painted quota-
tions from the Bible. "Obey the
Ten Commandments" is plastered
on the front bumper and on the
sides of the vehicle are lettered

-Daily-James Butt
VEGETARIAN VENDOR-Garr Osterhouse sells his celery and brings the Word of God to his cus-
tomers at the same time, through4the Biblical statements which adorn his truck. A vegetarian, Os-
terhouse believes wars will end when men stop eating meat, which makes them fierce. We will all be
as gentle as lambs when we eat what they do-vegetables, he claims.

the Ten Commandments and oth-
er phrases from the Bible.
* b* *
"I DON'T need signs to tell peo-
ple that I sell celery. It's the
teachings of God that need ad-
vertising, not my celery. People
can tell that's what I sell by the
smell," he asserted.
"It is not enough to believe,"
Osterhouse explained. "You
must also bring the -truth to

"If you have a sweetheart whom
you love, you like to tell everyone
about him and how wonderful he
is. The Bible says that you should
love God above all. So I cover my
truck with the wishes and com-
mandments of God," Osterhouse,
the evangelist in work-stained ov-
eralls, says to all who gather curi-
ously around the truck containing
his produce.
Osterhouse has held firmly to
his religious convictions even in

the face of occasional ridicule.
"People call me 'Moses,' 'Jesus,'
'Uncle Sam,' 'Whiskers,' and
Goat.' Every once in a while, some
little boy or girl asks me if I am
Santa Claus. But I don't care if
they make fun of me. I have pa-
tience. I go to school. The Bible is
my book. People ought to take a
little time off from making mon-
ey and war and do what the Bible
says," he concluded.

Katona Ties
Psycho logy
Psychological factors play as
important a role in an individual's
economic behavior as they do in
the way a person votes, thinks and
gets along with his wife or em-
ployer, according to Prof. George
Katona, director of the Survey Re-
search Center.
Prof. Katona explained that a
real understanding of spending,
saving and investing habits must
take into account the economic
attitudes, expectations and inten-
tions of the consumer and the
business man.
* * *
AUTHOR OF A new book on the
psychological analysis of economic
behavior, Prof. Katona is the first
authority to publish a work in-
tegrating the fields of psychology
and economics. The purpose of
the book is to show that economic
processes are more easily compre-
hended if the human factors and
the psychology of decision and
action are studied.
The new approach of applying
the principles of psychology and
economics to business activities of
both the consumer and the bus-
inessman may be developed in the
future to a point that will be use-
ful in forecasting business trends,
Prof. Katona maintains.
He indicated that prediction
may be accomplished by further
development of the research
method employing the "sample
interview survey" techniques.
This technique, which involves
personal interviewing of a small
group of persons selected at ran-
dom through complicated scienti-
fic procedures, enables researchers
to study "microeconomics," or the
economic behavior of a small sam-
ple of persons that represents the
activity of a larger group, Prof.
I Katona points out in his book.
* * *
EXAMPLES illustrating how the
sample survey technique was em-
ployed in past economic studies
are contined in the book. Another
of the main features of the work
is an extensive treatment of in-
flation and price control from a
psychological point of view.
For instance, surveys in 1949
of people's expectations and buy-
ing intentions for that year cor-
rectly revealed that there would
not be a severe drop-off of con-
sumer purchases.
The consumer finances survey of
early 1950, on the other hand,
showed that there would be a de-
cline in consumer's buying activi-
teis, which is evident at the pres-
ent time, Prof. Katona declared.
Prof. Katona emphasizes that
his book is not written for the
"scholar alone," but for "everyone
who is interested in what is going
on in present-day American eco-
nomic life."

New Yank
At Oxford
0P)-Alfred E. Perkins, '08, breez-
ed in yesterday from Denver,
Colo., to become a Yank at Ox-
ford-at the age of 66.
The former steel executive, a
graduate of the University, plans
to spend a year at Oxford study-
ing English history.
ness became official July 1, and
he told newsmen who greeted his
liner, "It seemed going to Oxford
would be a nice way of taking the
impact of stopping work after all
those years.
"I believe that after a year of
leisurely study and travel, I
won't miss the activity of my
working day," Perkins said.
"The main reason I wanted to
go to Oxford was because my fore-
bears were English. In addition, I
have been interested in English
history all my life. So far I have
had little or no opportunity to.
study it."
Perkins is an ardent angler and
golfer, but he left his clubs and
fishing tackle at home.
"I AM taking this business seri-
ously," h'e explained.
The elderly student said he had
promised his friends in Denver to
avoid acquiring the famous Ox-
ford accent.
"But," he said, "I may pick up
just enough accent so that I can
tell English jokes better than I do

Prof. Angell
Explains Low
Crime Rates
Cities in which the leaders know
what the common people are
thinking show a low rate of crime
a n d delinquency, according to
Prof. Robert C Angell, chairman
of the sociology department.
"The efforts of schools and
churches to promote community
responsibility is also an important
factor in lowering crime rates,"
Prof. Angell writes in a supplement
to the July issue of the American
Journal of Sociology entitled, "The

* * *
IN1940 Prof. Angell became in-
terested in the problem of why
some cities have fewer delinquen-
cies than others and began a study
of four key cities in the East Cen-
tral part of the United States. He
was aided in his analysis by the
University Survey Research Center
and a large grant from the Hor-
ace H. Rackham Foundation.
In this preliminary study, Prof.
Angell set up an index of integra-
tion and found that two causes for
disorganization in the city are:
the continuous movement of peo-
ple in and out of the city and the
great mixture of races and na-
The analysis of the four cities
was temporarily halted by World
War II but Prof. Angell and his
staff carried on after the war by
studying the differences in leader-
ship and organization in the vari-
ous cities. They found that the
right pattern of leadership, cou-
pled with efforts of schools and
churches to encourage good citi-
zenship, had more influence on
lowering crime than any other fac-
tor including the effects of news-
papers and labor unions.
Navy Helicopter'
Used in Rescue
helicopter instructor used his
windmill-type plane as a "blower"
yesterday to save three men from
possible drowing in Escambia Bay.
The pilot, R. C. Hamilton, 27
years old, of San Diego, Calif.,
was on a practice flight when he
noticed a small boat drifting away
from three men thrashing about
in bay waters.

HAVING NO rescue equipment
aboard, he swung the helicopter
around on the opposite side of the
boat. Gusts of wind churned up
by the blades blew the craft back
to the trio.
The three, all navy reservists
on active duty at Ellyson Field,
climbed in. Hamilton churned up
some more wind to get the boat
