P Publi Housing
Considered by Council

NSA President Denies
OEO Pressure Halted
Student Protest March

Ann Arbor City Council and
the city Housing Commission are
currently investigating the possi-
bilities of starting an "Operation
Turnkey" here, whereby private
developers build housing units and
turn them over to the city to be
used as public housing for low-
income families.
The investigation is partially a
result of dissatisfaction with the
city's present public housing pro-
gram. Ann Arbor has been grant-
ed $3.6 million by- the federal gov-
ernment to build 200 units under
a program in which the govern-
ment must approve all phases of
the construction, including op-

tions, selection of sites and selec-
tion of architects. Some citizens
and officials have expressed dis-
satisfaction with the slowness of
this procedure.
Dissatisfaction has also mount-
ed against the centralization of
the project. At a recent joint
meeting, City Council and the
Housing Commission informally
agreed that the 200 planned units
should be distributed over ap-
proximately six sites, with about
40 units per site.
Councilman Robert P. Weeks
(D-Fifth Ward), who proposed the
"turnkey" program to City Coun-
cil two weeks ago, has charged
that public housing construction

programs in which the govern-
ment must be involved at all
stages often take a "dishearten-
mgly long time."
It gets around that a dwelling
is public housing if the govern-
' ment is continually involved in
its construction," he said, "and
a stigma may be attached to the
people who eventually move in."
He said such a stigma might be
avoided if local contractors built
e houses on theirdown initia-
tive, using their own designs.
The Civil Rights Coordinating
Council, a private, local group, last
Saturday presented a written pro-
posal to Mayor Wendell E. Hulch-
er requesting that "snot more than
20 public housing structures be
constructed in'any one precinct
and/or elementary school attend-
ance area."
The proposal further suggested
that "there should be no con-
struction of public housing in
school attendance areas that
would push that school's Negro
enrollment over the 25 per cent
figure established by the Board
of Education as a goal."
Tuesday night, the group ex-
panded its proposal in a meeting
with members of the Housing
Commission, requesting that the
commission make an effort to ob-
tain at least 10 sites, preferably
smaller than the three now under

Language Requisites
*For Grads Altered

The Graduate School will im-
plement new foreign language re-
quirements for the doctoral pro-
gram to be set by individual de-
partments by Sept. 1, 1968, ac-
A cording to Ralph B. Lewis, assist-
ant dean.
Lewis expects great diversity in
the new requirements. "We will
probably get requests ranging from
'no languages required' to three
languages. Also, more than one
level of proficiency will be de-
fined," he said.
Once the changes are in effect
no course substitution will be per-
mitted, Lewis said. Under present
standards, a student may, in some
cases, elect non-language courses
as substitutes.
The new requisites will apply
to all incoming students. Students
already in the school will have the
option of fulfilling either the new
requirements or those now in ef-
fect, providing they do so by Sept.
1, 1969.
Last May the Executive Board
of the Graduate School, composed
of 12 faculty members, delegated
the responsibility of formulating
the new requisites to the 90 indi-
vidual departments and interde-
partmental programs offering doc-

torates. As each department re-
vises its requirements the Execu-
tive Board "will act with deliber-
ate speed in authorizing the revi-
sions," Lewis said.
We believe the new requirements
will be more meaningful to the
doctoral candidate because they
will be made relevant to his spe-
cific field of study, he said.

University President Harlan
Hatcher warned of the danger to
the world's great cities posed by
the "explosive rise in population"
at the convention held yesterday
for, "Voices of Civilization" guests.
The program, which officially
ended the week-long event, fea-
tured the awarding of honorary
degrees to the 20 scholars chosen
to represent their respective dis-
ciplines at the sesquicentennial
Hatcher, speaking for the last

time before an academic convo-
cation at the University in his
present role as president, predicted
"a world city only a century
away." He told of the undesirable
trends in life within the megalop-
olis as exemplified by the noise
and traffic jams of today as well
as the "squalor of the city slums."
Hatcher somewhat nostalgically
recounted how the former beauty

Huron Towers Apts. announced
yesterday that a limited number
of apartment units would be
placed on an eight-month, no price
increase lease "on an experiment-
al basis."
Paul A. Harris, manager of
Huron Towers, said that the
-hangeover was "immediate" for
seven empty units and added that
"potentially forty-five units on
three floors of one building could

operate on the short lease if the
initial experiment was successful."
The change to the eight-month
lease was negotiated with Mike
Koeneke, '69, and Tom Van Lente,
Grad, representing Student Hous-
ing Association and Student Rent-
al Union. Koeneke said that SHA
is currently discussing the eight
month lease "with a number of
apartment owners" and was op-
timistic about results.
"We are encouraged by the

changeover at Huron Towers and
will continue to bargain with other
landlords, particularly those who
will be having their new units
ready for occupancy this year."
With the oversupply now, he ex-
plained, the chances of these new
units being filled now was "vir-
tually negligible." He said he
hoped SHA could bargain to fill
these units "in return for an eight-
month lease."
Koeneke related the use of the
new Student Complaint Service to
the possibility of a rent boycott to
obtain an overall eight-month
He said, "Our list of recom-
mended housing will be sent in
December to all freshmen, who
would naturally be the ones look-
ing for apartments the following
semester." He indicated that the
complaint service would serve as
one criteria for selecting landlords
for the "recommended list" and
would also serve to determine the
target of a boycott, if SHA decided
it had the resources to pursue one.
"Our basic criteria for recom-
mendations, however, will be the
