Gov. William Milliken said the

with the "greatest care and the

Milliken said he shared the
concern of the Senate to assure
an "educational atmosphere that
is conducive to the whole process
of learning." He called criticisir
of the committee "premature."
University President Robben W.

Committee on

A committee of the Office of University Housing is
expected to recommend Friday an increase in residence hall
rates ranging from $30 to $50 per resident.
The suggested increase was blamed on rising food costs,
wages, and water prices, as well as the necessity for con-
tinuing dormitory improvements and constructing new
After the committee issues its report, the Student Ad-
visory Committee on Housing, the Board of Governors of
Residence Halls, IHA, and University housing officials will
I consider it.
Utimately, Vice President for Student Affairs Barbara
Newell and the Regents will determine if there will be a
fee increase.
The Regents traditionally have
acted on the residence hall rates
at their July meeting, but Edward e

Students told
no danger
of evictions
A group of law students and or-
ganizers from the Ann Arbor
Rent Strike assured tenants of
Albert Terrace last night that
they would be in virtually no
danger of being evicted or sued
for damages if they withheld
their rent.
Some 30 tenants from about as
many apartments listened to the
students discuss the legal impli-
cations of joining the rent strike.
Organizers figured they reach-
ed about 100 tenants through
roommates of the tenants who at-
tended the meeting.
"The new Michigan law pro-
tecting tenants from retaliatory
eviction is perhaps the best in the
country," one law student said,
"We think we can use it to both
4 protect the tenants and delay
court convictions long enough to
make the strike successful."
The group at Albert Terrace last
night was one of eleven which are
discussing the strike with tenants.
The organizers informed the
tenants, many of whom were stu-
dents, that rents cannot be as-
sessed against their parents since
housing is considered a necessity
and can be purchased by minors.

The committee will also recom-
mend that SGC urge the Univer-
sity to provide the legislators, with
the complete version of the Uni-
versity's proposed budget. Cur-
rently, only an abbreviated ver-
sion isbeing prepared.

including Rep. George F. Mont-
