Final wording of the new Uni-
versity eight-month lease was
completed yesterday by members
of the Student Housing Advisory
Committee, a joint group of stu-
dents and administrators.

ask their landlords for the new,

lease from now on.
The term of rental is for a per-
iod "not to exceed eight months,"
and the lease includes an optional
clause for those wishing to rent
for "a period up to four months
in addition" to the eight months.
A set of instructions at the be-
ginning of the lease is intended to
make the rental terms clear to
students who might otherwise be

The lease does not force land-
lords to rent for a term of eight
months, but the format places
emphasis on an eight-month term
with optional extensions.
Thomas A. Brown, Assistant Di-
rector of Student-Community Re-
lations, said he felt the new lease
to be a "substantial improvement"
over the old twelve-month lease.
"The format . . . is clearer," he
said, "and the rental agreements

In regard to the controversy over

that they want to change the di-
rection of the project from being
primarily a student group to one
which works more closely with the
community. They feel students
tutored by the pr'ogram will then
be able to gain more from it.
The move also resulted in direc-
tor Richard Sleet being relieved
of his $200 a month position.
Members of central staff, which
oversees the project, explained
that they could not afford to re-
tain Sleet at that salary partly
because of the need for more
handling of administrative details.
In requesting Sleet's - removal
from his position as director,
the staff offered him the post of
"co-ordinator of new projects" on
a volunteer basis. Sleet, who
founded the tutorial project, was
reported to have refused the offer.
He was unavailable for comment
last night.
Project President Lynn Shapiro
said that after six years the pro-
ject has "established a firm base,
and has a good relations with the
school system and the commu-
nity." But there are many things

Project co-ordinators have also
received the job of planning their
own programs without the aid of

plained that this weakens the con-

"that in order to fulfill our re-
sponsibility to the tutors, tutees,
and to the community, that Rich-
ard Sleet should be released from

was as much an abolition of the
