8-lton Li Lease Cowtroversy Aimed
At Apartmnents Ltd., Campus Realtor
By JIM HECK
A boycott of a major Ann Arbor realty firm may be in the offing
in the wake of yesterday's refusal by Apartments Limited to accept
the University's new eight-month lease.
In a meeting with leaders of Student Housing Association and
Student Rental Union, Richard Barnhill, spokesman for Apartments
Limited said his firm would not use the new University rental
agreement which would exempt students from subletting their apart-
ments in the summer.
Spokesmen for SHA-SRU confirmed last night a "campaign for
acceptance of the eight-month lease" was in planning.
The student leaders said the boycott would be initiated against
Apartments Limited or Campus Management, another local rental
firm, if they don't accept the eight-month lease.
Barnhill said last night he !
knew of no boycott. He added A i

Nature of Students'
By MARTIN HIRSCHMAN
Ever since the University com-
plied with a subpoena from the
House Un-American Activities
Committee and submitted the
membership lists of three Univer-
sity political groups to the Com-
mittee in August 1966, there has
been a growing concern over the
nature of the records of a stu-
dent and over their uses.
Last spring a committee com-
posed of James Lawler, assistant
director of Student Organizations,
and two students compiled a doc-
ument which would have defined
the position of the University
with respect to student records.
Student Government Council
and Graduate Assembly, however,
refused to accept the "Lawler Re-
port" largely because it gave wide'
discretionary powers to the Vice-
President for Student Affairs.
This action left a vacuum
which several University groups,
have begun to fill:

One of the major depositories
for student records is the Office
of Student Affairs. It was t.hrough
that office that the membership
lists of political organizations
were available when subpoenaed
by HUAC in 1966, though Lawler
says that such records are now
maintained only at the request
of the student.
The OSA files still provide a
considerable dossier on a Univer-
sity student. They contain every-
thing from demographic data like'
address and sex to a wide range
of material including marital
status, religion, aptitude test re-
sults, financial records and state-
ments from residence halls coun-
OSA is by no means the only
place where student's records are
maintained. There are records in'
the counseling offices of the indi-
vidual colleges, in the Office of
Financial Aids, in the Bureau of
Appointments and, in somc cases,
in the individual departments.
Several investigators have voiced
the hope that their work would
eventually lead to the consolida-
tion of these records.
The other problem coiecruing
student records involves the ques-
tion of access to them. At pres-
ent, OSA will provide potential
employers and other colleges and
universities with much of the in-
formation in their files, without
notifying the student.
Access to academic counseling

A special sub-committee of the
Civil Liberties Board has met only
once, but initial indications are
that it will call for a tightening

Although established in Sep-
tember, the committee formed to
study the Bureau of Appoint-
ments was only able to begin

Evart W. Ardis two weeks ago.
The investigation of the bureau
will center around two main is-
ants who inspect the apartments.
Spokesmen for SHA-SRU said

SHA-SRU hopes that if such a
boycott is necessary, it will force
other firms to accept the Univer-

SHA-SRU's action was prompt-
ed by reports of the large num-
ber of apartments left vacant
last September, and SGC's pre-
' diction that there will be even
more vacancies next year.
Barnhill denied that there were
vacancies. He commented, "Even
