Group seeks


urban center

Four graduate students are at-
tempting to interest the Univer-
sity community in the creation of
a center aimed at the solution as
well as the study of urban prob-
The four---Jeffrey Howard,
Edward Steinfeld, Chuck Landy,
and Mitch Zaretsky -- are pro-
posing an "urban service institute"
which would alter what they call
a present emphasis on urban re-
search that is never applied to
actual problems.
"The time has come to use the
brainpower available at the Uni-
versity for service to mankind as
opposed to service for intellectual
journals which turn out interest-
ing but unused studies," explains
Zaretsky, "and this can best be
done through a center which co-
ordinates related research in di-
verse fields."

The four students have organ-
ized a group they call "Project
Octopus" in order to start gath-
ering information and create in-
terest in an urban service insti-
tute. They are applying for office
space and funds from Graduate
Assembly and other groups.
"We call ourselves that because
an octopus has many tentacles,
and urban problems require a,
many-faceted approach," Zaret-'

sky explains
"We hope

various student organizations, in-
cluding the Tenants Union, Stu-
dent Health Organization and
Environmental Teach-In C o m-
The group would also like to
"provide a showcase for student
projects and research that do not
get shown," Zaretsky says. Mem-
bers also hope to help other stu-
dent and community groups in
setting up workshops in such
subjects as housing and architec-
tural design.
"Instead of going to faculty for
information, students should be
able to consult other students,"
explains Zaretsky.
The group has already worked
with interested members of the
faculty and administration in
compiling a list of courses cur-
rently relevant to urban studies,
such as "social adaptation," "com-

munity psychology" and "simu-
lation systems analysis." The list
is being circulated throughout the
"A true interdisciplinary ap-
proach is needed because today's
urban problems are of such mag-
nitude that one person from one
discipline cannot solve these prob-
lems," Zaretsky says. "We need
one center - possibly, in the long
run, an institute - to coordinate
interested students, faculty and
relevant information."
"I would like to see such an in-
stitute be problem-oriented rath-
er than classroom-oriented," he
adds. "That would be an immed-
iate aid for the community."
"This is an opportunity for
people with brains and ideals to
come together," he says. "Per-
haps through this type of insti-
tute we're proposing, these ideals
can be implemented."

classes and projects at the Uni-
versity," he adds.
The group is attempting to in-
terest students in reporting what
their department or school is do-
ing in the field of urban studies.
In addition to contacting stu-
dents and faculty on an informa-
tional basis, the four organizers

TWA put a price on your head
that even your parents
might agree to pay.

We're out to get you home for the
Holidays. Fast.
Which is something that your parents
will probably enjoy too.
Something else they'll enjoy is our fares
for students. (Students, that is, who are
betweenthe agesof12and21 and who have
TWA's Youth Card.) On a standby basis,
you'll get 40% off regular coach fares.
Which doesn't mean you'll be flying
second class or
anything like that.

You still get all the great food and
TWA features like movies and stereo
music* But it won't cost you like it does
everyone else.
And TWA flies to nearly all the major
cities in the U.S., plus we have a special
youth fare to Hawaii.
With all that going for you, there's
only one excuse for not going home for
