'U' afi
The University and Detroit's Ford
Hospital have become affilates.
An agreement to establish a joint
administrative committee for coopera-
tive programs was announced Saturday
by President Robben Fleming and Ben-
son Ford, president of the hospital
board of trustees.
Ford Hospital, which has an excellent
reputation, is located in Detroit's inner
Operating details of the affiliation
have not been specified. However, it is
expected that University medical stu-
dents will take part of their clinical
studies under the guidance of staff
physicians at Ford. When appropriate,
Ford physicians will receive part-time
appointments to the medcial school
In addition, Ford staff members will

have access to University Medical Cen-
ter facilities for co-operative programs.
The affiliation with Ford Hospital
will provide an additional clinical base
for expanding medical school enroll-
ment, explains Dr. William Hubbard,
dean of the school.
The University has committeed itself
to expanding the school's enrollment
from 205 to 300 students. However, the
actual expansion cannot be undertaken
until the State Legislature grants addi-
tional funds to the school.
The affiliation with Ford is expected
to bring this expansion nearer realiza-
tion by providing an additional clinical
base for additional students, officials
The Ford Hospital program will be
incorporated into the medical training
program whether or not legislative sup-
port is forthcoming, Hubbard says.

In addition, Dr. Hubbard stresses that
Ford Hospital will provide the medical
school with a clinical base in the inner
"We are trying to increase the flexi-
bility of the Medical School curriculum
by giving students a broader base for
clinical training," he explains. '
Hubbard says that Ford Hospital is
one of the largest and finest in the
United States. "Its staff has received
national recognition for excellence in
comprehensive patient care and in post-
graduate residency training," he ex-
"There is an extraordinary collection
of extraordinary good doctors working
full time at Ford," he adds. "The re-
markable thing about the hospital is
the people."
Hubbard also explains that the affil-
iation will benefit all the schools which

l5ates with Detroit hospital

now work in conjunction with Univer-
sity Hospital, including health science
schools such as nursing, the School of
Social Work, the education school and
the engineering school.
The Ford affiliation will operate much
like the present University relationship
with the Veterans Administration Hos-
pital and St. Joseph's Hospital in Ann
However, the newly-created adminis-
trative committee has not established
operating procedure for the affiliation.
The intention, of the committee is to
develop programs over the years rather
than set up many details now which
will eventually be outdated, Hubbard
The final agreement followed several
months of discussion between Hubbard
and Dr. Robin C. Buerki, executive di-
rector of the hospital, who was "in-
strumental" in initiating the discussions.

The student-faculty committee
commissioned by the literary col-
lege faculty last week to study the'
proposed general studies degree
held its first meeting Saturday.
Committee chairman Prof. Ron-

will issue a report within two
weeks in expectation of a special
faculty meeting later this month.
Prof. George Piranian of the.
math department, another com-

students would be allowed to

and the bachelor of arts program.

WASHINGTON-A move by the Department
of Health, Education and Welfare against "auto-
nomous" black studies programs might seem to
be new fuel on the fire of student protest.
The President himself cane down heavy on the
side of "law 'n' order" on the campus last week
when he denounced demonstrators of all types.,
whatever their grievance, and publicly commended
Notre Dame President Theodore Hesburgh for a
hardline stand against protesters on his campus.
And last week HEW announced that it will use
its power to withhold federal funds from schools
(under the 1964 Civil Rights Act) to attack black
studies programs and other "black-only" college
, In a memorandum which will soon be sent
to every college and university president in the
country, HEW will warn that "autonomous" black
studies programs must be "desegregated" or col-
leges will face less of federal funds.
The first college hit by the new ruling is An-
tioch in Ohio, which has an Afro-American Stu-
dies Institute and an all-black dormitory. The
Institute is open only to black students at the

college. Its classes are held inia special dormitory
used by the black students, and all its faculty
members are black.
Antioch President James Dixon told NEW in-
vestigators of the program that he considers the
Institute in compliance with the spirit of the Civil
Rights Law, since the idea originated with the
students and not with the college. Antioch black
students wrote to the agency that "it 'would be a
cruel joke" if civil rights laws which were enacted
to benefit Afro-Americans were used to "destroy
the one movement that will most benefit Afro-
HEW replied by giving Antioch until March 14
to submit a desegregation plan for the Institute.
Under guidelines, more than $1.5 million in federal
assistance can be withdrawn from the school if
it fails to comply.
HEW equates the word 'autonomous," as ap-
plied to black studies departments or programs,
with"segregated." The word in some places, means
"blacks only." In other places it means the stu-
dents want community leaders brought into the
planning and placed on control agencies, or it
means they want a voice in decisions about the

Speaking- of Feikens' position
in the Republican party, Harris
aded, "It's praise from a very
strange quarter."
Harris said his acceptance of
the subcommittee post is depend-
ent upon the outcome of the April
mayoral election. If elected mayor
he would devote full time to Ann
Arbor and his University obliga-
If not, he would accept the New
Detroit Committee post.
Feikens and Harris have worked
together in the past for passage
of the state tenant's rights legis-
lation and the new open housing
law, both of 1968.
In 1967 Feikens recruited Harris
to defend persons arrested in the

Michigan law entitles tenants to claim 20% of their rent as
credit against state income tax. If you do not claim this credit,
your landlord may subtract this 20% of your rent from his tax
bill, but by law he is not entitled to that credit. Do not pay your
landlord's income tax as well as his property tax, have your land-
lord fill out a form, MI1040G. If he refuses he is breaking the
law, furthermore such information provides the State with figures
to check tax returns of Ann Arbor landlords. For information
