Council Changes FHA Coverage,
Broker Provisions in Document



City Council passed on first reading a-revised fair housing ordi-
nance last night.
In order for the proposal to become law, it will have to be passed
a second time when it comes for a second reading in September.
The new proposal drops federally insured housing and rooning

units from coverage. In addition,

. new appointment

Fills Position
Mark G. Noffsinger has beef
appointed assistant director of res
idences effective Aug. 15.
He will assist the recently ap
pointed Director of Residences Eu
gene Haun in developing a "nev
philosophy" during the conmin
year of transition.
Noffsinger noted that this tran.
sitional year will be necessary ti
"look the situation over soundly'
in preparation for the "inevitabl
ultimate change."
No Change for Change
"We will not be making change,
for the sake of changes but fo:
the best type housing for the Uni.
The unified plan that the officE
hopes to eventually establish wil
end the split housing conditions o:
men and women. This will ulti-
mately affect our rules and regu-
lations as a philosophy develops,
Noffsinger added.
While co-education is a direc-
tion, it is not a single directing
force, he said.
Unified Direction
Another "force" will be giving
the residence hall staff a "pur-
poseful and unified direction.'
"This exists now but it must be
complimented so that it serves in
the best possible way for the sole
purpose of the student-academic
achievement," he said.
One of the immediate problems
facing the housing system is com-
munication. During this past year
of transition in the Office of Stu-
dent Affairs, many of the staff did
not know whose responsibility was
whose. "And if the staff didn't
know, the students remained
equally in the dark," Noffsinger
He added that' he didn't believe
that this was anybody's fault, but
just the problem of a transitiona]
year. With the establishment of
the posts of director and assist-
ant director of residences, Noff-
singer believes that this problem
will be very much alleviated.
Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs James A. Lewis said that the
appointment was made at the re-
quest of Haun after the newly ap-
pointed director had two confer-
ences with Noffsinger.
Shayon R(
"Every . society's use of mass
media bears direct relation to that
society's view of man," Robert
Shayon, Radio and Television Ed-
itor of The Saturday Review said
Speaking on "Critical Issues and
The Mass Media," Shayon drew
parallels between contemporary
mass media and the condition of

discrimination by real estate broker
-4and advertisements now come un-
der the ordinance's purview.
Revise Complaint Means
Procedure for handling com-
plaints and penalties for discrim-
ination have also been revised.
Complaints are filed with the Hu-
man Relations Commission. If con-
ciliation fails to eliminate an "un-
lawful discriminatory practice,"
the matters will be turned over to
the city attorney.
He "shall institute a misdemean-
or proceeding in Municipal Court
for the City of Ann Arbor . .. un-
less such attorney shall determine
that such proceedings could not
lawfully be sustained." In the pre-
vious ordinance this discretion-
ary power was absent.
The previous ordinance allowed
for injunctive relief to be obtained
against persons discriminating.
Under the revised ordinance as it
was passed last night, this relief
could only be used against per-
sons who have been previously
found guilty of discriminating.
No Prison Sentence
The possible 90 day prison sen-
tence has also been dropped from
the new proposal.
B If the ordinance is passed at the
second reading in September it will
go into effect as of January 1.
However, its penalty section ($100
fine) will go into effect July 1 in
order not to injure persons ignor-
ant of the law.
Councilwoman Eunice Burns of
the first ward opposed these dates.
"When the coverage only affects
20 per cent of the dwelling units
in the city, I see no reason to take
time to inform people that most
likely they are not covered," she
Dwelling Units Vary
The number of dwelling units
covered by the ordinance varies
from 20-30 per cent depending
upon whom you speak to.
There was some question of the
authority of Council to pass such
a fair housing motion under the
new state constitution. Prof. James
Pollock of the political science de-
partment and a delegate to Con-
Con said there was no question
about the legality of such a law.
"It was not our intention to pre-
empt or preclude action by local
governments in this field," Prof.
Pollock said.
Chairman of Ann Arbor Fair
Housing-CORE Lemar Miller ad-
dressed Council at the end of the
session and said that his organiza-
tion is fighting for a "strong ordi-1
nance." "I do not think the ordi-
nance presented tonight is a strong
one," he said.
Prof. Albert Wheeler of the Med-
ical School and local head off
NAACP said "the propsed ordi-
nance gives minimum protection
to the Negro victim of discrimi-
nation but maximum considera-
tion to the pejudiced financial in-

Establish Disciplinary Body


A new committee has been es-
tablished "to act as a disciplinary
body to consider students involved
in actions of a severe but delicate
Set up by the Vice-President for
Student Affairs under the author-
ity delegated to him through Re-
gents bylaws 8:01, 8:02 and 8:03,
the Referral Committee has been
included in the appendix of the
new Joint Judiciary Council as
one of "other sources of judicial
authority" outside the jurisdiction
of the council.
It differs from council's Refer-
ral Committee since it has the
power to act and council's commit-
tee was designed solely as a
screening body. The council com-
mittee is designed "to refer all
possible cases of regulation viola-
tions to the proper University
Other Agencies
The agencies may be the coun-
cil, mental hygiene department, or
other counselling agencies. The
committee may also refer cases

Director of Discipline, Student
Activities and Organization, John
Bingley, said the referral commit-
tee set up by the vice-president for
student affairs was "a wise thing
there were certain cases which
to have done." He indicated that
should be handled by a special
Patricia Golden, !63, past mem-
ber of the council, disagreed point-
ing out that council's constitution
was "designed so that all stu-
dent conduct matters requiring
judication would come through
Joint Judiciary and that any spe-
cial cases would be sent to the
appropriate counselling agencies
through the referral committee."
Never Considered Committee
"She said the council had never
discussed the Office of Student
Affairs Referral Committee." This
type of a committee was never
brought up because Joint Judiciary
Council felt its committee was
competent to handle all cases of
student discipline falling under its
jurisdiction," Miss Golden noted.
The OSA's committee is to be
composed of the vice-president of1
student affairs or his designated
representative, the administrative
official most knowledgeable of the
facts, and either the chairman or
vice-chairman of JJC or both.
The council's committee will con-,
sist of the advisor to the council,;
a student member of the Univer-
sity Committee on Standards and
Conduct, and the referring offi-
cials of the OSA.

WASHINGTON-Federal Housing Administrator Robert Weaver
said yesterday that the attitudes of white homeowners toward Negro
neighbors won't be changed by federal housing orders, but such orders
can affect behavior patterns and accelerate open occupancy.
Weaver said it is inevitable that anti-discrimination orders even-
tually will be extended beyond the one issued by President John F.

3) To minimize conflicts with
the city that result from Univer-

sibilities for growth; and
5) To serve as a framework or
guideline for Central Campus
"Hopefully, the plan concepts
offered in this report will provide
a lasting resource of stimulation
and direction in the effective ad-
justment of, campus plans and
educational goals," the plan says.
Walkways and integrated build-
ing complexes are the main fea-
tures of the plan. "If exploited,

For Building
Declaring that the University
will grow "in all its ;functions,
parts and areas," Vice-President
for Business and Finance Wilbur
K. Pierpont reviewed plans for $17
million in Central Campus build-

The largest is a $10 million den-
tal school building, to be located
adjacently north and west of the
current facility. It will house ex-
panded teacming, research and of-
fice facilities of the school.
An 800-car parking structure
will be built near the new dental
school building, Pierpont added.
The $1.2 million structure will
serve dental school faculty, pa-
tients and students as well as those
of other nearby buildings.
$ 3.3 million library annex will
be built on the site of the West
Physics Bldg. connecting the Gen-
eral and Undergraduate Libraries,
Pierpont announced. Preliminary
planning for this library annex is
already underway, he added.
The fourth new Central Campus
building is the Institute for Social

Thompson St. Preliminary plans
are complete for the $2.5 million
structure and bids will be sought
next spring.
