Editor
The University's largest clas-
sified military research under-
taking, Project MICHIGAN is
about to take a $1 million cut in
funding that is prompting a 40,
per cent cut back in activities and
displacement of 25 of the project's
100 employees. And the cut could
of go deeper next year.

The battlefield surveillance pro-
ject, which was funded at $2.5
million dollars for the Feb. 1,
1967 to Feb. 1, 1968 period has
been renewed for another year by
the defense department.
However, Project Director Wil-
lis E. Groves of Willow Run Labs
said that the government is not
giving any money for the project
during the Feb. 1, 1968 to June

ictivity
30, 1968 period. The five-month
fund cut-off amounts to about
$1 million on the basis of last
year's funding. It is part of a gen-
eral 20 per cent cut in Defense
Department-sponsored university
research this year. The cut is
largely the result of the rising
cost of the Viet Nam war.
In order to keep the project
running, University officials have
decided to "spread out" some of
the $2.5 million funded last year
to pay for the five-month drought
this year.
This has meant that the pro-
gram is working under a 40 per
cent cutback during the Nov. 1,
1967-June 30, 1968 period.

UNITED NATIONS (f) - The United States told the

North Korea and rejected the U.S. plea.

Charter Not
To Accept
'U' Lease
By DAVID SPURR
Charter Realty, yesterday told
t representative of Student Hous-
ing Association (SHA) that Char-
ter did not intend to use the Uni-
versity's new eight month lease.
Several Ann Arbor landlords,
however, have recently agreed to
adopt the lease. These include
University Towers, Herbert Wick-
ersham, Ron West of Madison
Management and Huron Towers.
Donald E. Van Curler of Royal
Dutch Apartments will use the
University lease, but only on a
twelve-month basis.
"We havenever discussed the
possibility of an eight-month
lease," said Hilbert Beyer, rental
manager for Charter. SHA sent
Charter a copy of the new lease
last week.
Hasn't Considered
Beyer said that John Stegeman,
owner of Charter, also had not
considered the lease.
"We've been very happy with the
lease we're using," Beyer com-
mented, "and will stick with the
12-month lease. I can't see any
problems that students have had
with our lease." In the past Char-
ter has not used University leases
but has used their own lease
forms.
The University Towers manage-
tnent and Wickersham have used
the old University lease on an
eight-month basis in the past. A
representative from Huron Tow-
ers said that although his firm
prefers its own lease, the new
eight-month lease may be used
with a 20 percent increase in rent.
Ron West of Madison Manage-
ment said his rental increase
would be 25 percent.
Pressure on Charter
Asked whether the projected
vacancies in Ann Arbor apart-
ments might put pressure on
Charter to change its lease pol-
icy, Beyer told SHA Chairman
Mike Koeneke, '68, "We'll have to
cross that bridge when we come
to it. I don't think we'd ever
react under presure."
Beyer said he was unsure what
affect student consumer pressure
such as the boycott now be-
ing promoted against Apartments
Limited would have on the mar-
ket. He said "over 50 per cent"
of Charter's units have already
been rented for next fall.
Beyer said he has received "suc-
cessful response from students to
our apartments." Asked whether
many students had complained
about the twelve-month lease, he
said, "They make a choice when
they first rent with us on wheth-
er they want a twelve month
lease. If they didn't like the lease,
they'd rent from somebody else."

Last of a Two-Part Series
On a 12-foot square plot of
a small farm in Gettysburg,
Pa., lies a five-ton monument
marking the birthplace of the
Rev. John Monteith, one of
the University's founders and
its first president.
Late last year, University of-
ficials located the birthplace
of Monteith and obtained ver-
bal consent from the farm's
owner to erect the marker. Un-
fortunately, the owner died a
week later, leaving the ques-
tion of consent up in the air.
University officials sought
out the new owner of the pro-
perty, Mrs. Virginia Lee Red-
ding, who readily consented to
the project and even decided
to deed the land to the Univer-
sity.

prime forest located on the tip
of the Keweenaw Peninsula in
Lake Superior, the northern-
most part of Michigan. The
land is devoid of facilities and
equipment of any sort, much
to the frustration of the aero-
space research department of
the engineering college.
The site was obtained by the
University about five years ago
as a gift from Calumet and
Hecla Copper Company, which
have extensive land holdings
in the western part of the Up-
per Peninsula. Little was done

of 1964. At that time, the Ar-
