Recrd $186 Billion
WASHINGTON (R'--President Johnson asked for "sac-
rifice and hard choices" in yesterday's budget message calling
for record outlays of $186.1 billion and a $10.2 billion income
tax surcharge to pay for the Vietnam war.
"It is not the rise in regular budget outlays which
requires a tax increase, but the war in Vietnam," Johnson
told the skeptical economy-bent Congress which has stalled
off an election-year tax boost.
It was the first time Johnson had specifically labeled his
proposed 10 per cent ?urcharge a war tax.
Spending Blue Print
The new spendingt ltueprint calls for selective expansion
of some domestic prograins and cutbacks in others, giving
high priority to government '

attacks on poverty, crime and
pollution in domestic pro-
grams. The outlay for the De-
fense Department is a pro-
posed $76.7 billion - almost
one-third of it to be spent on
Vietnam alone.
Johnson emphasized the need
for an anti-inflationary 10 per
cent tax boost starting April 1 for
individuals and retroactive to Jan.
1 for corporations.
Without the tax hike, he warn-

IHA Resolution BacksrrStudent
Boycott of Ap artime nts L ited

The Inter-House Assembly vot-
ed last night to support the Stu-;
dent Housing- Association (SHA)
in its efforts to force the adoption
of the University-approved eight
month lease.
The resolution, identical to the
one passed last week by Student
Government Council (SGC),
names Apartments Limited as a
target for a student boycott.
SHA and its subcommittee, the
Student Rental Union (SRU), are
pressing a publicity campaign
urging students not to rent from
Apartments Limited and to wait
until landlords adopt the eight-
month lease before renting apart-
ments for next fall.
At the request of Mark Schrei-
ber. '69, chairman of SRU, sever-
al IHA representatives agreed to
help organize a schedule of pick-
eting by memebrs of their resi-
dence halls. The question of ap-
propriating IHA funds to help
pay for SHA's advertising cam-
paign was put off until a later
date. The campaign, which in-
cludes newspaper advertising,
buttons, and daily picketing of
the Apartments Limited office on
Church Street has cost $300 to
date, paid for by SGC.
Michael Koeneke, '69 BusAd,
chairman of the SHA, charged
that Ann Arbor landlords have
"consistently taken advantage of
students" by charging "exorbi-
tant" rents. "The new lease is im-t
portant to the many dormitory ,
students who are planning to ,

The SGC resolution has also
been supported by Graduate As-
sembly, the Engineering Council,
the Young Democrats, and the
Young Republicans.
Apartments Limited was chosen
as a boycott target because it is
the largest apartment manager to
reject the lease, and because it
has accumulated the largest num-
ber of complaints to SRU from
Charter Realty and Campus
Management have also refused to
accept the new lease. University
Towers, Herbert Wickersham,
Madison Management and Huron
Towers, however, have agreed to
adopt it.
Paul Milgrom, '70, coordinating
vice-president of SGC, said that
SGC's reputation for direct, and

sometimes radical action, adds
weight to its demands. "The land-
lords know we're serious," he ex-
plained. "We're going to carry out
our threats, and the landlords are
not going to ignore us. If the
boycott doesn't work, next year it
might be rent strikes. We'll do
what we have to do."
He added that the effects of
the boycott,. if successful, will not
be felt until next year. "If Apart-
inents Limited accepts the lease,
the others will be forced to fol-
low suit next year," Milgrom pre-
Koeneke said that he has
been in contact with other apart-
ment owners and that they are
"feeling the pressure. I'm pleased
with the student response," he
said. "We're starting to pick up
