At a meeting yesterday with
Director of University Housing
John Feldkamp, a group of rep-
resentatives from Oxford Hous-
ing presented a list of reasons
why the women's co-ops should
not be partially converted into
$ men's co-ops or houses for two
sororities on campus.
Among the objections present-
ed were the financial need of wo-
men presently living in Oxford
as well as the lack of similar low
cost housing for next year if the
two co-ops are converted.
After listening to the argu-
ments, Feldkamp explained that
according to his statistics only 14
out of a possible 120 girls re-
turned to Oxford Housing from
last year, well below the average
33 per cent return rate in other;
'U' housing. "With the evidence
we have, Oxford is not in de-
mand," Feldkamp told the group.
Several Oxford representatives,
however, pointed out that the 14,
girls who were listed as returnees
only included those girls who re-
turned to the same house. They
explained several other girls re-
turned to different co-ops still
within the Oxford complex but*
were not included in the list.
Feldkamp said that the two
sororities, Alpha Kappa Alpha
and Delta Sigma Theta, want the,
benefits of living in a "sorority"
' atmosphere. At present they do
not have sorority houses, and ac-

Governor George Romney yesterday recommended to
the state Legislature an appropriation of $64.7 million for
the University's 1968-69 gneral fund budget, as part of an
over-all state budget of $1.3 billion.
The Governor's recommendation represents a 9.4 per
cent increase over the 1967-68 University appropriation, the
lowest percentage increase recommended for any state col-
lege or university.
The recommendation is $11 million below the $75.8 mil-
lion requested by the University in October.
Romney also recommended a $7.4 million appropriation
for University construction. The University had requested

Introduced as a "voice for black unity"
Detroit's controversial clergyman, Rev.
Albert Cleage, last night outlined the ra-
tionale and movement of black national-
ism in America's cities.
"I don't have to advocate separatism,"
Cleage claimed, "because it is built into
the fabric of American society. I just
want to utilize separation for our benefit
rather than continue to let it be used
for our exploitation."
Cleage, the head of the Federation for
Self-Determination which was established
which is necessary for self-determina-
tion, poses no threat except in the minds
of white people, according to Cleage.
Whites fear it because "black power
would require giving up of the white
power exercised so ruthlessly in black
communities" said the man who recently
rejected a $100,000 Ford Foundation ur-
ban re-development grant because it had

will use any means necessary."
To Cleage the strength of the black
community lies in the self-consciousness
that "black is beautiful." This aware-
ness will allow blacks to "stop feeling
ashamed," and to discover their own
"This self-consciousness brings a sense
of pride," Cleage said, which will per-
mit "blacks to see through the vast tis-
sues of lies fabricated by the white man.

Fleming explained yesterdayj
that although the Governor's
recommended budget is small, it
is considerably better than last
year, which was disastrous."
"While we have not had time
to analyze the Governor's mes-
sage, we note that the increases
are said to provide funds for ad-
ditional faculty and other staff
for added enrollment, for salary
increases equal to those given to
Civil Service employes, to meet

to provide for new building main-
