White House Silent
The White House was silent on
McCarthy's announcement. So
was Kennedy-for the moment.
McCarthy said his determina-
tion to run was stiffened by "an-
nouncements from the adminis-
tration of plans for continued es-
calation and intensification of the
war in Vietnam."
He said he hopes his candidacy
will lead Johnson to alter that

challenge would have to go all

nomination for the presidency.

of the Senate and other politic-

of American government.

threat to the unity and the

Off-campus housing officials
have approved a new University
eight-month lease for use by Ann
Chairman of Student-Com-
munity Relations William L.
Steude and members of the Stu-
dent Housing Association drafted
the lease last night. SHA mem-
bers Mark Shreiber, '69, said he
expects the lease to be available
by January 1.
The new lease includes a rental
term clause "not to exceed eight
months." This is followed by an
optional 'provision to extend the
lease term for a period "not to
exceed four months." Student ten-
ants who wish to rent for a per-
iod longer than eight months can
sign both clauses at the same
time. Thus, the lease provides
for a rental term of any number
of months up to a year.
Instructions explaining that the
second clause is merely an option
to extend the eight-month term
will be included on the lease,I
since housing committee .members
feared that landlords would get
confused students to sign for 12
months all at once.
Steude approved the lease and
intends to discuss it with Univer-
sity lawyers before printing it for
off-campus housing bureau use..
He said he also wishes to fore-
warn landlords about the new
lease so that they will have time
to write leases of their own if the
University lease is unacceptable to
Shreiber, stressing the need for
immediate availability of the new
lease, said, "If it's not out by
January 1, it will be ineffective
until next year."
Besides the term of rental, other
important differences in the new
lease involve return of damage
deposits, penalties for late rent,
and landlords' charging tenants
for cleaning apartments.
The lease now stipulates that
the landlord must return the
damage deposit within 20 days
of the termination of the lease,
along with an itemized list of costs
if the full deposit is not returned.
Tenants cannot be penalized for;
late payments unless they agree
to do so at the time of signing
Also, landlords must accom-
pany bills for apartment cleaning
with an itemized list of what has
been cleaned. "The largest number
of complaints from student ten-
ants now," said Koeneke, "are'
about landlords who overcharge
Daenzer was involved.
When Shaw read Cutler's letter
to the board he specifically de-
leted Mrs. Daenzer's name. The
board decided it did not want to
discuss the individual case.
"The board met three times this
month not to, consider the speci-
fic case but for a philosophical
discussion in the proper extent to
which the literary college should
be involved in such disciplinary
matters," said Manning.
Mrs. Daenzer Unaware
Mrs. Daenzer was unaware lastj
night of Cutler's letter about her
which was sent to the board nearly
a month ago. Manning voiced sur-
prize that Cutler had not informed
Daenzer of the charges against
her. "I'm amazed he didn't tell
her, that's the very first thing,
you should do," he said.
When reached for comment last
night Cutler refused to discuss
his letter. "I guess if you have
a letter in your hands which has
my signature on it, I wrote it," he

The founding convention of the Michigan Conference
of Concerned Democrats (MCCD) will meet tomorrow in
Detroit's Cobo Hall to "outline some basic positions on
issues," but it is uncertain whether the conference will
endorse a Presidential candidate at this time.
"This Conference will develop policy positions," said
State Senator Roger Craig (D-Dearborn). "The Demo-
cratic Party generally is out of focus in the eyes of the
public, and we need a reaffirmation of issues."
"I don't anticipate this conference endorsing a can-
didate," former Democratic State Chairman Zolton
Ferency said last night. "If we can emerge with a con-
tinuing organization, with some loose structure, and some
idea of the direction of our goals, we'll be accomplishing
Principal speakers at the gathering will be Julian
Bond, the legislator denied a seat in the Georgia legis-
lature for antiwar commentssbefore he was reinstated

star and organizer in the Dissenting Democrats movement
Other participants include Congressman John Conyers
(D-Mich) ; Ferency, who resigned his post last week and
state Senators Graig and Coleman Young (D-Detroit).
The MCCD originated among a group of delegates
and observers at the State Democratic Convention this
February. In a newsletter dated Sept. 25, they asserted
their concern "because there no longer was any con-
spicuous attempt being made to inform the membership
of the Party on the complexities of major political issues,

"There is in effect no Democratic Party in Michigan.
