University President Robben W.
Fleming said yesterday Student
Housing Association's proposed
boycott of Apartments Limited
was legal under federal law. Flem-
ing, a former labor mediator, said
he knew of no Michigan law pro-
hibiting it.
Fleming, comparing the plan
to unionized labor tactics, added
that two factors will govern the
students' success in the boycott:
the extent to which students will
support it, and how much mutual
support city landlords will give
each other.

The Engineering Council voted
unanimously last night to en-

tion-Student Rental Union in ap-
plying "consumer pressure" on
landlords to accept the new Uni-
versity "eight month" lease.
Mark Schreiber, '69 SRU chair-
man, spoke to the council before
they voted, and explained a plan
to single out Apartments Limit-
ed for a student boycott.
"Ann Arbor apartment owners
have constantly reaped above
normal profits," said Schreiber,
"and Apartments Limited is the
largest and the worst of them."
The resolution urged "students,
faculty, and staff to lend their,
support in using consumer pres-
sure 'in achieving acceptance of
the eight month lease."
Schreiber explained that a gen-
eral rent strike would be "un-
feasible at this time," and that
lowering rental prices could be
achieved after landlords, one by
one, were forced into accepting
the new lease.
Council member Chris Bloch,
0 '69E, at first criticized the plan
for being "a broad endorsement
with no strings attached . . . I
don't think boycotting just one
landlord will do any good."
Schreiber explained, however,
that Engineering Council would
have two members on a committee
organizing the plan, and that:
competition would force other
landlords into accepting the lease-
after one had adopted it.

By The Associated Press
North Korea responded to a
U.S. call for immediate release of
the USS Pueblo and its crew by
demanding an American apology
and severe punishment for those
it said committed criminal acts
against North Korea.
This was shown in a transcript
released by the State Department
yesterday of the exchange be-
tween U.S. and North Korean
representatives at Panmunjom
Wednesday in the wake of the
Red seizure of the Navy intelli-
gence vessel.
In another statement, North
Korea said this morning the'
crewmen of the United States spy
ship Pueblo "must be punished by
law." It also said it is "fully pre-
pared" to cope with any attack
by the United States and would
"deal a hundred fold, thousand
fold retaliation."
The statement did not indicate
whether the NortheKoreans
planned to put the. Pueblo crew
on trial or would demand pun-
ishment of them as a conditions
of their release.

killed early yesterday by "hostile
fire" during a sweep for North'

U.S. To Demand
Action on Pueblo

United States asked the Security
Council last night to meet in ur-
gent session and bring about "the
immediate restitution" of the cap-
tured USS Pueblo and its crew of
83 from Communist North Korea.
The request came after Presi-
dent Johnson 'alled up 14,600 re-
servists for active duty. The ie-
servists now being called can be
retrained in uniform for 24!
There are 372 fighter and trans-
port planes in the various units,
which is the number Johnson
asked for.
A National Guard spokesman
said the air guard units are ready
for immediate movement. The
units have been brought up to

Captain Bucher, to international
waters where the United States
said North Korean gunboats made
the seizure Monday.
The North Koreans also re-
buffed efforts by the United
States at Panmunjom, the old

Land and the 'U': Expansion, Utilization

First of a Two-Part Series)
In 1841 the University of Michigan stood on
a square plot of forty acres, lined with trees
and crisscrossed by dirt paths. It was necessary
for all the students to enter the campus through
a hole in the fence that surrounded it-a hole big
enough to let the students in, but not big enough
to allow any of the cows grazing on the grassy
campus to get out.
Today, those forty acres form the hub of a
dynamic, ever-expanding campus, consisting of
over 2,400 acres in the Ann Arbor area with a

growth and expansion right up to 1966, has be-
come an expensive process of piece by piece
purchase in a cutthroat market.
An interesting example of the process of land
purchase by the University can be seen in the
methodical manner in which the University has
sought the land located at Tappan and Hill
Streets, between the School of Business Admin-
istration and East Quad.
The University has bought each piece of land
individually as it has become available, planning
eventually to control the complete block.
Planners have tentatively marked the aiea at

ed after long deliberations and
drawn-out negotiations.
'Suitable Atmosphere'
"It is imperative to create a
suitable atmosphere for such an
open-hearted discussion between
the belligerent parties and above
all to save thousands of people
from death and suffering while' a
peaceful settlement is b e i n g
"We appeal to all the belligerent
parties to extend indefinitely the
Tet (lunar new year) cease-fire
and to negotiate immediately a
peaceful settlement."

country is in a state of war," the
