Rising Costs




Si'nle Will
Rise to $960,
Double $900
Schaadt Blames Hike
On Food and Services
Undergraduate residence halls,
already leading the high-price
field, will cost their inhabitants an
additional $34 next year.
Rates will rise to $960 for a
single room, $900 for a double and
$845 for a small double or triple
unit during the upcoming school
year, Residence Hall Business
Manager Leonard Schaadt an-
nounced recently. Each fee, which
includes board, will be $34 above
the prices paid this year. These
existing levels were set in the fall
of 1962, when a uniform system of
prices was established.
The residence halls affected are
East, West and South Quadrangle,
Betsy Barbour, Helen Newberry,
Stockwell, Mosher-Jordan, Lloyd,
Couzens and Oxford House.
Oxford housing, which is the
maverick of the residence system,
has been assessed with essentially
the same rate increases.
But the autonomously governed
Martha Cooke Hall and Hender-
son House are not involved. There
has been no decision as to whether
their rates will inflate.
The remainder of the dormi-
tories will all receive uniform cost
hikes since they are under a Resi-
dence 'Hall" Board of Governors
empowered to set rates.
T he Regents stamped approval
of the new rates at their June
Rising Costs:
In announcing the price in-
crease, Shaadt emphasized "the
need to meet rising costs for serv
ices and food in the residence
system." He claimied that an un-
official estimate ranked Univer-
sity costs in the middle of Big Ten
schools. The residence system is

tion and Welfare showed however

and schools offering large graduate
curriculums and stressing research.
Other Observers
Other observers, both within the
University and throughout the
state, have been critical of the
"high costs of education." These
costs were scored by educators the
past year as a rationale for op-
posing tuition hikes.'
One of the leading critics of
costs has been Regent Allan Sor-
enson of Midland who publicly
denounced the possibilities of a
tuition hike last fall.
It was at this time that Senate
Appropriations Committee Chair-
man Frank Beadle (R-St. Clair)
had given an opinion that a ma-
Jority of his committee favored
tuition hikes by the institutions to
match state subsidies.
Although the schools refused to
make tuition hikes, they gave care-
ful consideration to residence price
Due to price standardizations in
1962, the raises were made uni-
formly this time, Schaadt said.
Betsy Barbour and Helen New-
berry residents will be assessed
other price increments to pay for
a newly-installed phone service.
This service, made possible by the
University's installation of Centrex

telephoning systems, will place a
phone in every girl's room at those
residence halls.

Seek Public Drives Polic

City Councilman Robert Weeks
last night told Council that he will
ask City Administrator Guy C.
Larcom Jr. to formulate a policy
on city sponsorship of various
public campaigns.
While the city policy would re-
late in general to all drives initiat-
ed by nongovernmental organiza-
tions, Weeks' request was evidently
made in reaction to current city
distribution of stickers urging
people to "Support Your Local
Weeks, other Council members
and various citizens are concerned
about the origin of the stickers
and the appropriateness of official
city distribution.
John Birch?
An investigation of the stickers'
origin was proposed last week by
Harold I. Orbach and First Ward
Councilwoman Eunice L. Burns.
They asked Larcom to determine
if the stickers are a part of a
national campaign by the John
Birch Society. Orbach contended
in a letter to the Ann Arbor News
Friday that the city had been
"taken in and used unwiittingly"
in the Birch cause.;
The stickers were presented to
the city a month ago by the Wash-
tenaw County Conservatives, a
local, unaffiliated citizen's group.
They have since been given out by
various city agencies and by the
Ann Arbor Chamber of Commerce.
Shortly after Weeks had spoken,
George F. Lemble, president of the
Conservatives, read, a, statement
giving the Conservatives' "unquali-
fied support" of the investigation
of the origin of the stickers.

store windows and are on display

and South University establish-

quest to Larcom at Council's meet-

The court ordered Gov. George

the investigation contended that
the "Support Your Local Police"
campaign "has become an out-

To Detail
Before the North Campus park-
ing protestors meet with the per-
son in charge of North Campus
parking, they are going to draw up
a detailed "position paper" on the
problem as they see it and pre-
sent it to him.
The protestors decided to draw
up the detailed statement of their
position at their meeting yester-
day. On Friday, Francis G. Shiel,
manager of Service Enterprises'
North Campus parking operations,
had agreed to meet with two rep-
resentatives of the protestors some
time this week.
The protestors were requesting
negotiations with the adminis-
tration and a moratorium on the
new parking regulations until Fri-
day. In getting a tentative prom-
ise from Shiel for a meeting to
iron out the difficulties, they tem-
porarily suspended their morator-
ium requests.
Meanwhile, the "park-in" con-
tinued as usual on the lawn next
to the Phoenix Center. It drew over
150 cars, a number which has re-
mained fairly steady over the last'
week. Yesterday was the ninth day
the protestors have flooded the
huge lot with cars. The protest
started on Wednesday, July 1, over
parking regulations which were
then going into effect.
The protestors have sent letters
to Vice-President for Business and
Finance Wilbur K. Pierpont and
to Shiel, in addition to an open
letter a week ago. They have also
talked with Executive Vice-Presi-
dent Marvin L. Niehuss. Their
main complaint has been that
there was not enough notice on
letter a week ago. They have also

our police department should be
opposed rather than supported."
Lemble said that his organiza-
tion thinks the investigation of
the sticker program "is an excel-
lent and timely suggestion, and
(we) only wish we had thought of
it first."
Noting that the "the 'anti-
sticker' campaign appears to be
somehow involved with local 'civil-
rights' activity," Lemble proceeded
to "point out a fact of life" in
the city:
Discord, Outright and Violence
"For about two years this city
.. has been subjected to concert-
ed attempts to foment discord,
civil unrest, evenoutright violence.
Probably we have had more of this
sort of activity than any city of
similar size in the entire nation.
"The amazing fact is that these
efforts have failed. We do not have
violence in the streets, an armed
citizenry or any of the other vio-
lent reactions about which we read
daily in the newspapers."
The lack of such "violence"
Lemble attributed to "our fine
local people-both Negro and
white" and to the police depart-
Not Too Highly
"Our ... police department has
most effectively handled the sev-
eral nearly-successful attempts to
create circumstances of violence.-
They can hardly be praised too
highly for their forbearance, ef-
ficency and just plain fine quality
of work.
"Washtenaw County Conserva-
tives wholeheartedly endorses this
investigation (of the stickers) and
now pledges its full cooperation to
Mayor (Cecil O. Creal) and Coun-
cil in - any relevant matter con-
cerned therewith."
Lemble recommended that the
investigation be conducted by
Council members; that the "mo-,
tives, purposes and necessary
reasons" for the sticker circulation
and for the campaign against the
circulation be closely examined;
that "the public effect, direct or
indirect, actual or political, harm
or benefit," from the sticker cam-,
paign be carefully investigated and
that posibly "several responsible
local, state and national investi-
gative agencies" might be con-
tracted to aid in the inquiry.
Frankly Baffled
The Conservatives' feeling is
that an approach involving out-
side agencies would "reveal why
the anti-'Support Your Local
Police' sticker campaigners feel
that Ann Arbor citizens should not
be encouraged to support their
police-an attitude which we must
confess frankly baffles us.,
The group urges "full public dis-
closure of all evidence, findings
and any recommendations of this
investigation. We repeat our strong
and dedicated commitment in sup-
port of the presentation of truth
in its complete picture as being
most beneficial to our community."

Two Issues
Romney said he is presenting
minority planks on two of the
three issues-extremism and civil

Scranton charged in a news
conference that the semi-secret
Birch Society and other rightist
groups are trying to "take control

Goldwater." He said Goldwater is
not himself an extremist, but has
given them comfort by his refusal
to reject their support.
Declarations like Romney's and
Scranton's, and some considerably
stronger, were crushed in last
week's closed platform hearings
by Goldwater's majority of at
least 2 to 1 in the platform com-

TALLULLA, La.-The mutilated
bodies of two persons have been
found in a muddy offshoot of the
Mississippi River, now the focal
point of the search for the three
fissing civil rights workers. How-,
ever, both bodies have been ten-
tatively identified as not belonging
to the missing workers.
The second body was pulled
from Old River, 17 miles south of
here, yesterday. The first was dis-

ComissonOK's Merger
Of Wabash,* Norfolk, Lines
WASHINGTON (A) - The Interstate Commerce Commission yes-
terday gave its blessing to another major railroad consolidation in the
east uniting the Norfolk & Western, Nickel Plate and Wabash Lines
into a 7,450-mile network.
But the ICC said the deal may not go through until the Penn-
sylvania Railroad agrees to get rid of its controlling interest in the
N&W and the Wabash.
And the Pennsylvania has said it won't consider doing that until
the ICC rules on its proposal to merge with the New York Central--a
ruling that isn't expected fory

Second Decision
The decision is the second on
three major eastern consolidation
plans. The ICC in December 1962
authorized the Chesapeake & Ohio

With its 99.5 per cent control of
the Wabash and its 31 per cent
control of the N&W, the ICC said
in its 10-1 decision approving the
merger, the Pennsylvania "is in
a position to extend its control
over the proposed system."
The ICC gave the Pennsylvania
until Sept. 17 to agree to divest.

Teaching of concepts will have to supplement the teaching of
facts-for there soon will be too many facts to learn.
Such a shift of emphasis won't be easy to make. "We know far
