The action, on a recommenda-
~tion by University President Rob-

student Committee on Communi-
cations Media.

Freshmen may

The Regents voted unanimously yesterday to abolish
the University's requirement that sophomore women and
all freshmen live in dormitor ies.
Parental permission will be required, however, for fresh-
men students and women under 2l who desire to live in off-
campus housing.
The vote on the requirement was made without debate.
The resolution further stipulates that a special letter

urban policy,
EAST LANSING (P)The chair-
man of the U.S. Civil Rights Com-
mission said today that urban
renewal programs could add to
the possibility of ghetto disorders.
Chairman John A. Hannah,
President of Michigan State Uni-
versity, was asked at a news con-
ference to comment on Gov.
George Romney's statement that
present urban renewal policies may
have "helped spark the riot in
' Detroit."
Romney made the statement
Thursday in testimony before the
U.S. Senate Banking and Cur-
rency Committee, checking into
his qualifications for Secretary
of Housing and Urban Develop-
ment in the Nixon cabinet.
"It could be," Hannah said, "I
don't know however."
"Certainly with urban renewal
there is this potential," he added
There is a tendency, Hannah said,
for highway and urban renewal
policies to be implemented "with-
out any regard to what they're
going to do with the people"
that would be displaced.
Hannah added that his planned
resignation from the commission

and the Soviet Union meet at the

seek implementation of the tN

in either announcement.

in the French proposal are four of

fifth; Nationalist China, is not
recognized by the Soviet Union.
