Local landlords agree.
to negotiate with SHA





The mutual problems and com-
plaints of University students and
Ann Arbor landlords will be dis-
cussed in the first of a series of
negotiating sessions between the
Student Housing Association.
(SHA) and the major landlords in
the University area.
SHA chairman Mark Schreiber
announced last night that students 3
would negotiate with representa-
tives of Apartments Limited, Cam-I
pus Management; Charter Realty;
and Dahlman Associates on mat-
ter's of management services, the
institution of an eight-month
lease,.the return of tenant damage
deposits and student obligations
to landlords.
The negotiations follow a three-
month student boycott of Apart- ~
ment Ltd. which began last spring
after it refused to accept the Uni-
versity's "eight-month" l e a s e<
which was cooperatively written
by the students and the Office of
Off Campus Housing.
The University lease provided
an optional eight-month lease for
all students, in addition to a spe- lfge r luIaul
cific mechanism for handling the ,
touchy question of returning dam-
Sages deposits.
SHA selected Apartments Lim-j

SDS leader lists demands

Suspendled students
sek C mbi entry
From Wire Service Reports
Columbiaw student radicals picked up where they left off
last spring, with a sparsely-attended rally last night in front
of Low Library where freshman orientation was being held.
Students for a Democratic Society and other activists
voted against entering the building en masse but several
spokesmen went in to invite the freshmen to a late night
rally. That demonstration was also sparsely attended.
SDS said it will "attempt to register" today 30 students
who were suspended by Columbia for taking part in the spring
protests if their demands are not met, including full am-
nesty. Registration starts today at Columbia and classes be-
gin on Sept. 26.
The group's threat followed a ten-minute meeting Mon-
day with the acting president of Columbia, Andrew Cordier,
at which SDS presented its de-
mands for an end to the univer-
sity's "-racist and militaristic poll- 4
cies." Cordier made no comment SO r l l

'U officials hit budget guides.

The University's top four administrators
met with representatives of the state Bureau
of the Budget in Lansing Monday to discuss
Gov. George Romney's spending guidelines
for the 1969- 70 fiscal year.
The austerity guidelines, based on current
revenue projections for the coming fiscal
year, provide for an increase of less than $14
million in the level of expenditures of the
state's 11 colleges and universities.
Except for a seven per cent increase in
faculty salaries, and a predicted five per
cent in non-academic staff wages, the gov-
ernor's guidelines provide no funds what-
soever for new projects and programs.
A team of University economists have re-
viewed the revenue projections and basically
concur with the state version.
But despite the limits on revenue, the
Universitv's repnresentatives-Presicdent Rnh -

$13.7 million increase in higher education
funds is not enough to cover the salary
raises proposed in th'e guidelines. The pro-
posed wage hike would cost more than $4.5
million for the University alone-more than
a third of the total available to all state
colleges and universities.
The seven per cent faculty salary increase
would put the University back in the "A"
ranking of faculty pay scales according to
criteria established by the American Asso-
ciation of University Professors.
In a three and a half hour presentation,
the University representatives presented
evidence designed to show the shortcomings
of the support now given to higher education
in the state.
"We gave them graphic evidence that the,
state of Michigan is falling behind other
states in higher education appropriations,"
Ross said. He explained that ten years ago,

institutions. In terms of "constant dollars,"
(the buying power of a dollar in 1959) the
University was receiving $802 dollars per
student in 1959, but only $731 per student
for the last fiscal year.
"We are actually getting $71 less per
student now than ten years ago when you
take -into consideiation what those dollars
will buy," Ross said.
Ross said he felt the state officials were
impressed by the presentation. One official
in the Bureau of the Budget who attended
the meeting called it a "fine presentation,"
and said it made clear the guidelines will
put tremendous restraints on the state's
colleges and universities.
In addition to pointing out the implica-
tions of the tight budget proposed by Rom-
ney, University officals also outlined the

The resolution deplores Hum-

The resolution also criticizes
Humphrey's failure to condemn
the alleged brutality of Chicago
Mayor Richard Daley and his 'po-
lice force.
Supporters of the resolution ar-
gued that the Young Democrats'
first responsibilitiy is to the con-
science of the campus organiza-
tion rather than to the interests
of the national party..
One member of the group said
that "it would be morally lax to
deny McCarthy support now." He
added that the organization's
strength would suffer if the res-'
olution were defeated since poten-
tial membersd might be repelled

Ann Arbor City Council last
night appropriated $11,400 for a
housing emergency loan project
which would provide funds to low
income families desiring to move
into cooperative housing.
The appropriation is financed
through the city's $100,000 Ac-
celerated Human Relations Funds
which Council approved last June.
The project is designed as, an
alternative to other low-cost hous-
ing programs. It woulc 'allow the

amended the original resolution to
say that the city would only "use
all legal means" to obtain repay-
ment of the loans. The original
version of the resolution stated
that the city would "secure" re-
payment of the loans from the
participating families.
Councilman H. C. Curry (D-1st
Ward) offered an earlier amend-
ment which would, have removed
any mention of repayment from
the resolution. He later withdrew
the amendment in favor of the
"legal means" amendment.
