Creal Calls Bretton's Concept Wrong;
Government Not City-Manager Type

Creal explained. is the only one of'
its type in the United States.
The administrator form of gov-
ernment was written into the City
Charter, and to have it changed to
a city manager a new charter}
must be written, he said.
Under the city administrator
system, as in Ann Arbor, the
mayor has much more power than
he would under a city manager
plan, he continued.
Cites Reason
Creal cited the fact that one
reason for this is that under the
city administrator system he is

elected directly by the people and
is thus responsible to them. In
contrast, Creal said. under the city
manager plan, the mayor is chos-
en instead by the City Council and
has limited powers.
"My concept of the mayor's of-
fice, based on the present char-
ter. is to be available to the citi-
zens of the community," Creal
"When I decided to run for the
office of mayor I did it with the
knowledge that the bulk of my
time would be required to do the
job well," he said.

FOG COATS CAMPUS--As colder air moved in on a fine rain
which began early yesterday, the campus succumbed to murkiness.
The heavy fog remained into the night, making even the Diag
something of a Londoner's dream.
Letter Intended To Improve
Student Off-Campus Housing

"The Dean of Men's letter to
Ann Arbor landlords was an ef-
fort to improve student off-
campus housing," Assistant Dean
of Men Alvin M. Eldersveld said
The letter, mailed last Thurs-
day, dealt with a University policy
which will become effective July
1, 1959. The change, covering three
main points, concerns the certifi-
cation of housing by the Univer-
It provides that assistance will
be given to only certified housing
in which a written agreement is
in effect. Contracts, it points out,
may be private or of a University-
approved character.
U' Professor
Accepts Post
On Committee

rot. Russell A. Smith of the
v School accepted an appoint-
it yesterday to serve on a Sen-
labor subcommittee study in-
Igating a possible revision in
Taft-Hartley Labor Relations

Explaining the rationale be-
hind this statement Eldersveld
mentioned that over 90 per cent
of the problems that occur in off-
campus dwellings would never
have happened if written agree-
ments had been used.
Explains Rationale
Further defining the attempt
to improve housing, the letter
states that verbal agreements in'
either certified or uncertified.
housing will not be honored by
the University. But it adds that
the Housing Bureau will continue,
to list uncertified property.
"The plan to adopt the certifi-
cation standards was formulated
in October," Eldersveld comment-
ed. Representatives of the Dean
of Men's office together with city
officials drew up the certification
standards, he went on to say.
Under the new policy, Elders-
veld maintained, the landlords are
given an incentive to raise their
standards to obtain a "Certificate
of Compliance" from the Ann Ar-
bor Department of Building and
Safety Engineering.
Bureau Re-Estaballshed
This followed the path of the
Men's Off-Campus Housing Bu-
reau which was re-established in
January of 1958. Aimed at assist-
ing qualified householders along
with the students, the Bureau has
already enlisted 40 per cent of theĀ£
landlords in the program.
To gain support, the letter
urged them to have their dwellings
inspected and certified.
One technical factor in estab-
lishment, Eldersveld rioted, wasI
that the University cannot ap-
prove since they had no set stand-
ards or system for checking. It
merely can certify.
Allaying the fears of those who1
note "paternalism" Is behind this
move, Eldersveld pointed out thatt
the policy change was in no wayI
designed as a further controlt
It was primarily aimed, he em-1
phasized, as 'a service to Univer-c
sity .students in obtaining betters
off-campus housing.l

Prof. Henry Bretton of the poli-
tical science department said yes-
terday that the concept of a full-
time mayor advocated by Repub-
lican mayorial candidate Cecil
Creal represents a significant al-
teration of "the spirit if not the
letter" of the present charter.
Prof. Bretton, a member of the
campaign committee of Dr. Fred-
rick House, the other Republican
candidate for mayor, said that Dr.
House was pledged to live up to
the concept of the mayor present-
ed in the present charter.
House is upheld in his views by
nearly all members of the former
city charter commission, Prof.
Bretton said.
Some of the advantages of the
present charter were listed by
Prof. Bretton:
1) City government is made
more efficient by the elimination
of overlapping, time-consuming
and money-wasting allocations of
2) The office of mayor is made
more attractive to younger citizens
who must work for a living and
are thus in the mainstream of
civic action.
3) It prevents the office of the
mayor "and thus the city govern-
ment" from being made the "pri-
vate domain" of any single man
or group.
Priest to TalK
At Graduation
"Preparation for Tomorrow" is
the subject of the address to be
given by Rev. Fr. Theodore M.
Hesburgh, president of the Uni-
versity of Notre Dame, at gradu-
ation exercises at 2 p.m. Jan. 24
at Hill Auditorium.
Topic of the speech was an-
nounced by Erich A. Walter, as-
sistant to the president.
Father Hesburgh has been pres-
ident of Notre Dame since 1952.
Prior to that time he had received
several degrees, including his doc-
torate of sacred theology, and
honorary degrees from various
During World War II Father
Hesburgh served as auxiliary
chaplain of the Army and he has
served on many educational, re-
ligious and service boards.

Once there were three roommates and their names were Walter
Pellucid, Casimir Fing, and LeRoy Holocaust and they were all
taking English lit. They were all happy, friendly, outgoing
types and they all smoked Philip Morris Cigarettes as you
would expect from such a gregarious trio, for Philip Morris is
t he very essence of sociability, the very spirit of amity, the very
soul of concord, with its tobacco so mild and true, its packs so
soft and flip-top, its length so regular or long size. You will
find when you smoke Philip Morris that the birds sing for you
and no man's hand is raised against you.
Each night after dinner Walter and Casimir and LeRoy went
to their room and studied English lit. For three hours they sat
in sombre silence and pored over their books and then, squinty
and spent, they toppled onto their pallets and sobbed them-
selves to sleep.
This joyless situation obtained all through September and
October. Then one November night they were all simultane-
ously struck by a marvelous idea. "We are all studying the same
thing," they cried. "Why, then, should each of us study for
three hours? Why not each study for one hour? It is true we
will only learn one-third as much that way, but it does not
matter because there are three of us and next January before
the exams,'we can get together and pool our knowledge!"
Oh, what rapture then fell on Walter and Casimir and LeRoy !
They flung their beanies into the air and danced a schottische
and lit thirty or forty Philip Morrises and ran out to pursue
the pleasure which had so long, so bitterly, been missing from
their lives.
Alas, they found instead a series of grisly misfortunes. Walter,
alas, went searching for love and was soon going steady with a
coed named Invicta Breadstuff, a handsome lass, but, alas,
hopelessly addicted to bowling. Each night she bowled five
hundred lines, some nights a thousand. Poor Walter's thumb
was a shambles and his purse was empty, but Invicta just kept
on bowling and in the end, alas, she left Walter for a pin-setter,
which was a terrible thing to do to Walter, especially in this
case, because the pin-setter was automatic.
Walter, of course, was far too distraught to study his English
lit, but he took some comfort from the fact that his room-
mates were studying and they would help him before the exams.
But Walter, alas, was wrong. His roommates, Casimir and
LeRoy, were nature lovers and they used their free time to go
for long tramps in the woods. One November night, alas,
they were treed by two bears, Casimir by a brown bear and
LeRoy by a Kodiak, and they were kept in the trees until mid-
January when winter set in and the brown bear and the Kodiak
went away to hibernate.

So when the three roommates met before exams to pool
their knowledge, they found they had none to pool! Well sir,
they had a good long laugh about that and then rushed to the
kitchen and stuck their heads in the oven. It was, however, an
electric oven and the effects were, on the whole, beneficial. The
wax in their ears got melted and they acquired a healthy tan
and today they are married to a lovely young heiress named
