THE SUNDAY STAR Wathiuft* i, 0■ C., Sunday, Msrth I, 1959 Unemployment Benefit Revisions Are Urged ANN ARBOR. Mich.. Feb. 38 (API— A study of the 1998 recession shows the Nation failed to make full use of Jobless Insurance plans to relieve family hardships and shore up the economy, three University of Michigan professors said today. Profs. Fedele Faurl, William Haber and Wilbur Cohen de clared urgent improvements in Federal and State legislation “are vitally needed while the lessons of the recession are still fresh in our memory.” Among their recommenda tions. they urged extension of the temporay Federal aid pro gram which expires at the end of March. The Labor Depart ment reports $398 million has been paid out so far in tempo rary unemployment compensa tion. This Includes outlays of five States Colorado, Con necticut. Illinois. Ohio and W -cnnsin—which are financ in'- temporary unemDlovment ce nrensstion without Federal aid. Most States normally pay benefits for 36 weeks of un employment. Under the temporary Fed eral program enacted last year, duration was extended to a maximum of 39 weeks. The Government lent the States interest-free money to finance the program. The loans are to be repaid by 1964 unless some future Congress cancels them. Extension Is Urged The Michigan professors, who are specialists in the fields of economy and social work, said the temporary program should be extended "until per manent Federal standards and supporting State legislation are enacted to improve the benefit duration and financing ar rangements of State laws.” A bill to extend the tem porary Federal program six months from the scheduled April 1 expiration has been in troduced in the House. The Michigan professors based their findings on con tinuing studies by the Uni versity's Survey Research Cen ter on the Nation-wide impact SHANNON Continued From First Fate only high academic standards, but also challenges to the stu dents here that will stimulate them with the excitement of developing the mind.” Dr. Shannon, who termed himself an educator with a tra ditional background, has an In ternational reputation as a Vic torian literature scholar. He taught for six years at Harvard University before Joining the University of Virginia faculty three years ago as an associate professor of English. University officials said Dr. Shannon s salary will be about *20.000 a year. Mr. Darden s salary was *15.000. which he turned back to the State.

I ' of the recession during 1957-8. The professors said more money should have been paid out to the Jobless. “The tragic part of the sit uation," they said, “was that there was 97 billion in unem ployment Insurance reserve funds which were not touched during the recession. If State and Federal unemployment laws had been more adequate and had permitted $1.5 to $3 billion of these reserves to be used to pay benefits to the unemployed, many personal hardships could have been , avoided.” Recommendations Listed Their recommendations in cluded: ' Broadening unemployment ; insurance coverage to take in , 18 million employes in small , firms, who are not covered in 33 States, and some groups of ' hired farm laborers. i Increasing maximum dura-! tion of benefits to at least 30 weeks in a benefit year in all j States. Establishing an equalization fund “to reduce the excessive costs of unemployment insur ance in States suffering from a high incidence of unemploy ment caused by national eco nomic conditions.” . Providing benefits equal to, half their nqrmal full-time! gross weekly earnings to "thei great majority of eligible claimants.” They said States and employes should be given six years to reach this objec tive.

Son of Educator Dr. Shannon specifically de clined to give his views rn the Virginia school segregation , problem. He also said he would have to study present policies regarding branches of the uni versity before saying anything about any expansion of that program. "I'm just getting used to the shock of being named to this high position." he said. "I only heard about it a short while before it was made public." The educator is the son of 1 the late Dr. Edgar F!

In 1956. he married the former Miss Eleanor Bosworth, who was dean of women at Southwest ern University, Memphis. Tenn. They have two daughters. After the announcement of his appointment, chimes in the University Chapel played col lege songs to herald the new president. Mr. Darden, who succeeded Dr. John Lloyd Newcomb, became the university's third president in June, 1947. For the first 75 years after the school was founded it had no ; president: the chairman of the faculty was the adminis trative head. The first presi dent was Edwin A. Alderman. Keen On Hard Work The outgoing president has advocated somewhat of a Spartan approach to educa tion. He often said he was more Interested in hard work from a student “than in a , brilliant mind that has the j quiet habit of loafing.” For years a member in good standing of the Byrd Dem ocratic organization. Mr. Dar den never has hesitated to walk alone when he thought the occasion demanded it. He campaigned throughout the State for the old Gray com. mission local option plan in the school segregation crisis. When State leaders Junked such a plan in favor of the ill-fated massive resistance program, he told them they were wrong. Mr. Darden, a former mem ber of Congress, has said he plans to retire from public life and return to his home in Norfolk.
