NEW YORK - The executive
board of St. John's University has
announced plans to appeal a state
supreme court justice's order to

One of the students said the
civil ceremony was held because he

Senate of the University of Min-
nesota approved a University re-
organization plan which would
create a College of Liberal Studies
including all departments whose
programs lead to a B.A. degree
The plan will be put into effect
only after further study of its de-
tails is, made and approved by the
Board of Regents. If accepted, the
plan will probably go into effect in
the fall of 1963, a faculty spokes-
man said.
The plan also suggests an All-
University Council on Liberal Edu-
cation which would establish the
requirements for all bachelor's de-'
grees, whether in arts or sciences.

Hart Dedicates
Housing Units
For Elderl
One of the first housing projects
for the aged in the nation fi-
nanced with federal funds was
dedicated by Sen. Philip A. Hart
(D-Mich) in Ann Arbor June 19.
The LurieTerrace, located at W.
Huron and Chapin Sts., will be
completed by the end of 1963. The
$1.7 million project will contain

Michigan and 13 in the nation

funds under the Housing Act of
Washtenaw County residents,

pletion of the building, can apply
for an apartment. Persons in the
lower middle retirement income
bracket are expected to be eligible
for occupancy.
The project is being managed
by Senior Citizens of Ann Arbor,
Inc., a corporate adjunct of the
Senior Citizens Guild to whom the
government loan was granted. The
Guild will supervise the manage-
ment of the project.
Full qualifications and apart-
ment building rent scale will be
announced, Mrs. Shata Ling, di-
