University
Asks Street
Closings
The University has petitioned
the City Council, asking that S.
Thayer St. between Huron and
Washington Sts., N. University
Ave. between Washtenaw and For-
est Aves., and Tappan Ave. be-
tween S. University Ave. and Mon-
roe St. be vacated and closed.
The University asxs that Thay-
er be closed so that Ann Arbor
High School, now the property of
the University, can be enlarged to
accommodate several departments
housed in crowded quarters on
condemned property.
More Parking
Other land listed in the petition
bounds property owned by the Uni-
versity, and would be used to alle-
viate the crowded parking situa-
tion during the regular school
year.
Mayor William E. 'Brown, Jr.,
referring to the petition, urged the
City Council and the University to
go easy in plans for development of
the main campus area.
Mayor Brown suggested that ex-
pansion of the University in the
State St. area would "be unwise,
and very, very difficult for the
city of Ann Arbor to handle."
Weigh Future
"Before any streets are closed
(or) any other contracts entered
into, we should carefully weigh
what the future effect will be upon
our fine city," he said. He noted
that "we will not neglect the wel-
fare of our citizens for the benefit
of "others" in his communication
to the Council.
Development of the new North
Campus would. be more agreeable
to the city, according to Mayor
Brown's statement.,
Council action was not taken on
the University petition. Several
Council committees are studying
the petition and will report on it
later.
In return 'or the requested street
closings, the University has said it
will pay a share of improvement
costs in another section of the
campus.
Also, curbs and gutters and some
sidewalks will be constructed at
University expense, according to
the petition.

Purpose of te Memhorial is to
serve as a tribute, to the American
Indian. In addition, Foundation
members feel it will contribute to
the culture of the age.
Officers of the Memorial feel
that a professional anthropologist
should function as curator for the
memorial halls and director of the
research center to be concstructed.
Prof. Volney H. Jones, Curator
of Ethnology and member of the
University anthropology depart-
ment was on the original executive
committee of the Foundation, and
serves as its president.

are embarked on one of their
biggest archaeological years -
nearly 1,000 archaeologists in 25
expeditions are digging all over
the country.

PLANNING: Homer Cooper, Angus Campbell, and Gerald Gerrin
plan out the initial stages of a political behavior study, a typical
procedure at the Survey Research Center.

Questionnaires, statistics, interpretations and an abundance of
scientific curiosity-all can be found within the walls of the Institute
for Social Research.
Activities of the Institute center around its primary aim to in-
crease understanding of social behavior through scientific methods.
Directed by Rensis Likert, a broad program of research and pro-
fessional training operates in two units, the Research Center for
Group Dynamics and the Survey Research Center.
Studies of economic behavior, human relations and social or-
ganization and attitudes and behavior in public affairs are carried
on at the Survey Research Center.
National Staff in 60 Counties
With a national staff in 60 counties throughout the United States,
the Survey Research Center interviews on such problems as con-
sumer spending and saving, on attitudes toward civil defense and on
human relations problems in factories or institutions.
Some of the studies recently conducted have concerned teen-age
boys with regard to their problems, experiences and attitudes to or-
ganized group activities.
Researchers study problems of individual family finance, how they
spend and what forms of saving they choose. Results of such studies
help to understand and predict trends in the national economy. They
are also concerned with social and psychological factors which deter-
niine how people use their money.
In the labor field, an extensive study of member participation in
labor unions was made. It concerned the problem of why some union
members are active in union affairs while others do not participate.
Another area examined was how could union organizations effectively
encourage more group participation.
Interviews Involve the Nation
While some of the surveys are taken from specific cities and or-
ganizations, most of the interviewing involves the national popula-
tion. At any one time 20 to 30 projects can be going on; some last two
and three years, others only a few weeks.
Headed by Angus Campbell, the Survey Research Center em-
ploys approximately 50 graduate
students of psychology, economics
and sociology along with its staff
of professional research workers,
a coders, field interviewers and sam-
ple statisticians.
Studies in five areas of group
functioning comprise the work of
the Research Center for Group
Dynamics. Here, scientists exam-
ine such problems as group pro-
ductivity, communication a n d
spread of influence, intergroup re-
lations, social perception and m-
provement of group functioning
and member adjustment.
"Projects are undertaken by the
center only when they have prom-
ise of contributing to the develop-
ment of a systematic theoretical
understanding of group fun
fnto-ing," says Ian C. Ross, assistant
Sdirector.
Conducts Industrial Research
The center conducts research in
x.industrial situations, military units
and through laboratory experi-
ments. Some investigations have
been concerned with differences in
the responsibility an individual
has for the success of group tasks,
uses a highly developed method Another study involved differences
tees every individual in the n0- in the status of groups performing
aff members are drawing the a joint task.
In additional projects, research-
ers sought to find out what char-
e acteristics make some people ex-
°° . f.. ercise influence in groups while
others can not, and how different
types of personalities behave dif-
> v ferently in group settings.
Work with industry has includ-
ed experiments on the introduction
of changed methods and developed
procedures by which resistance to
{ change could be reduced.

INTERVIEW: Specializing in the so-called "free-answer" inter-
view, Survey Research Center studies differ from most other sam.
ple surveys in the methods of interviewing. Respondents are not
asked to choose among specific answers, but are encouraged to
answer the questions in a conversational way.
