At 764-1817

Attempting to increase low-cost housing, the city council
passed this week a resolution creating' an Ann Arbor Housing
Commission. The commission would set standards and obtain
figures necessary to qualify Ann Arbor for federal and local aid
to housing.
Acting Dean Charles W. Joiner and Prof. James W. White
addressed the University Law School Legal Association last night
to explain the operation of the Washtenaw Legal Aid Society, Inc.,
an, organization which is the outgrowth of a recent Michigan'
Supreme Court ruling to allow junior and senior law students to
act as legal counsel for indigent persons, under the guidance of
practicing attorneys.
An overflowing crowd attended the Homecoining mass meet-
ing at the Union Ballroom last night. In contrast to the period
themes of the past, the weekend of Oct. 15-16 will revolve around
a mathematical theme, "nUMber '65." Interest reflected at the
meeting led General Co-chairmen Barbara Nepstad and Andy
Falender to anticipate "a highly successful and fun-filled
The residence hall system is experiencing the annual short-
age of student employes. Robert L. Wagner, assistant to the busi-
ness manager of the residence halls, said the response to ad-
vertisements has increased and the shortage will probably be
filled soon. He had not heard reports that the shortage of ex-
perienced workers was caused by many upperclassmen moving
out of the quadrangles last year. Administrative souices feel
that availability of financial aid has meant a decrease in the
number of students needing work.

' Police Chief Rolland J. Gainsley said yesterday that the police
department will try to control traffic congestion by cracking
down on illegally parked cars, motorcycles and motor scooters.
The University is working with him to solve traffic problems,
Gainsley added.
The third high-rise building announced this week will be
constructed, starting Nov. 1, on State Street near Packard,
according to yesterday's announcement by Ronald E. Mitchell.
Mitchell, who heads the investment group that will construct
the 13-story apartment building, said the building will be ready
for occupancy at the beginning of the 1966-1967 fall trimester.
Panhellenic Association -announced yesterday that to date
311 women have registered for fall rush, which is not open to
freshman women. Last year, 329 women rushed University sorori-
ties in the fall and 153 pledged. Students wishing to register today
may do so in the rush office, 2542 Student Activities Building.
"E" Stickers-student driving permits-are being given out
more sparingly by Joint Judiciary Council's Driving Committee,
an official source said yesterday. Many reasons for having cars
at the University that previously would have been accepted by
the committee are not being accepted, the source said.
Long Distance
The University Medical School will be able to award scholar-
ships of up to $2,500 per year through a new federal program of
aid for medical and nursing education. The $787.5 million bill was
approved by the House of Representatives this week. The meas-
ure now goes to the Senate. Two current programs have been
extended for another three years. These are a $160 million per
year program in matching grants to aid in the construction and
replacement of teaching facilities, and a $25 million per year pro-
gram in funds for student loans.

' To Plan
OSA Works on Idea
For Establishment of
University Bookstore
The University is considering
plans for building unsupervised
housing like apartments for sin-
gle upperclassmen, Vice-Presi-
dent for Student Affairs Richard
L. Cutler said at last night's Stu-
dent Government Council meet-
ing. Building this type of housing
involves the problems of rent lev-
el and private versus public de-
velopment, he added.
Further action depends on the
report from the President's Blue
Ribbon Housing Committee with-
in two to three weeks. High on
the priority list now are apart-
ments for married graduate stu-
dents which will enable them to
live more cheaply.
Cutler's office is working on
plans for a University book store,
he said. The opening of a book-
store would necessitate change in
the Regents' bylaws. Any change
would require an accumulation of
public opinion and student sup-
port. Without it, the project would
fail, Cutler remarked. He called
on SGC to get student support for
the project.
Student activism is "an issue,
not a problem," Cutler said. It
marks a latent moral revolution, a
concern by students about how
people treat one another, he said.
Cutler stressed that 'activism be
aimed toward a positive goal, rath-
er than toward destruction of an
He expressed caution lest insti-
tutions b° destroyed because of
some evil in them. He also warned
that activism not be an end in it-
Cutler added that he wants stu-
dents on this campus to have
maximum freedom in the areas of
speech and personal action. He
maintaine that people find best
their purpose in life when they
have the freedom t - test them-
selves and society. "Increased
freedom must be accompanied by
increased responsibility," he claim-
ed. He aso said that, although he
encourages freedom, he will be,
strict with those who abuse it.
Cutler called on SGC to take
action, rather than pass paper
resolutions. He said that for stu-
dent government to be useful, it,
must know the facts on which the
University takes action, and be;
participants in the decision-mak-
ing process.
He remarked that the council
now represents a "constituency
which does not exist"-the gen-
eral student body. The student
body, he said, is composed of
various interest groups,nsome ad
hoc, some continuing. The trick
of having representative govern-
ment is to find a way to appeal
to all these parochial groups.

After the battle with Congress for appropriation funds has been won, government officials are all smiles and graciousness. At least
that's what The Daily's reporter-photographer Mark Killingsworth found on Aug. 24 when he stopped by the White House to witness
the signing of a bill extending the Peace Corps with a $115 million authorization for 1965-66. Killingsworth, serving during the sum-
mer as a legislative aide in Washington, captured (left to right) Peace Corps Director Sargent Shriver, President Johnson and Vice-
President Hubert Humphrey wreathed in smiles. Naturally, Lyndon was passing out pens to highlight the festivities.

Joint Talks
Programn To Provide
Federal Scholarships
For Needy Students
WASHINGTON ()-On a 79-3
roll call, the Senate yesterday
passed a $4.7-billion higher edu-
cation bill providing federal schol-
arships for needy students and
funds to strengthen colleges strug-
gling with the enrollment boom.
Under the scholarship plan i
the Senate bill, which follows
President Johnson's recommenda-
tion, an estimated 140,000 needy
students would get payments
averaging $500 in the first year.
The grants could go as high as
The student aids title of the
bill also would establish a pro-
gram of federal insurance of re-
duced interest rate private loans
for college students, and would
broaden a work-study program
which enables students to earn
money for their education.
Work-Study Plan
About 260,000 students are ex-
pected to get jobs under the
work-study plan.
The bill also would establish a
national teacher corps whose
members would serve in poverty-
stricken areas to improve educa-
tional opportunities for disadvan-
taged youngsters.
The 79-3 vote on the bill sent
the legislation to conference with
the House which passed it in dif-
ferent form by a 367-22 vote Aug.
Sponsors Confident
But sponsors of the measure
said they are confident the dif-
ferences will be settled quickly and
The bSenate version authorizes
$672 million the first year as com-
pared with about $650 million in
the House measure. Most sections
of the Senate bill include funds
for four additional years.
The House is expected to go
along with a Senate provision to
establish a national teacher corps
whose members would serve in
poverty-stricken areas to improve
education for youths in those
areas. The Senate version author-
izes $672 million the first year
compared to $650 million in the
House measure.
Long Fight
Passage of the bill capped a
long fight by senators interested
in education legislation to set up
a federal scholarship program.
The Senate has voted for this be-
fore but it always has been re-
jected in the House.
But this program is certain to
be in the final compromise bill
this time since the House went
along with a modified scholarship
plan in passing the higher educa-
tion measure. It designated the
payments as opportunity grants.
The only major amendment
attached to the bill in the Senate
yesterday was one which would

In two separate resolutions last
night, Student Government Coun-
cil moved to organize students to
help themselves against high book
prices and rents.
In one, SGC passed a report that
said a student bookstore should
have University support, and that
a Regents' 1929 bylaw banning
this would have to be repealed.
In the other, the council passed
one part of another report-tabl-
ing the rest until next Thursday-
giving its support to Voice Politi-
cal Party plans to organize a stu-
dent "economic and political pres-
sure group."
Voice will begin its efforts -
now with SGC approval-on Tues-
day -with a rally and continue
through next week with actions
aimed at uniting students for fur-
ther action. The statement that
was tabled included a long report
on the present situation and three
more motions.

One of the motions tabled ask-
ed for SGC support -of either
"greatly enlarging" the present
University Off-Campus Housing
Board or of discontinuing Univer-
sity rental agreements. The tabl-
ed report also asked for bi-weekly
meetings with Vice-Presidents
Cutler and Wilbur Pierpont and
increases in low-cost married stu-
dent housing.
The bookstore motion, passed
completely, asked for widespread
publicity for the proposed book-
store. If the Regents were to re-
ject a University-financed book-
store, the motion said, overt stu-
dent and faculty support (peti.
tions, letters, etc.) to administra-
tors and state legislators should
be brought to bear on the Re-
Labor Union Funds
If that does not work, the mo-
tion continued, funds from labor
unions and other institutions
should be used to found a stu-

dent cooperative or private dis-
count bookstore.
In other action, SGC decided to
give $1,050 to finance and co-
sponsor an Oct: 7 citizen's confer-
ence, suggested by the University
Student Employes' Union (UM-
SEU; which will be intended to
study and discuss student econom-
ic welfare.
A UMSEU representative said
that "Know Your University Day"
would attract about 300 civic lead-
ers; a committee of seven UMSEU
members and two SGC members
will run it.
The temporary officers of the
SGC bookstore gave their report
last night, explaining that the
"SBX," which had been slated to
open this term, had missed its
opening date because of lack of
capital .and of an experienced
manager. Several SGC members
complained that the failure was
due to the fact that SGC did not

really function over the summer..
The housing report, ssubmitted
by Chairman of the Off-Campus
Housing Advisory Board Russell
Linden, '68, raised several impor-
tant points.
-First, it estimated that Ann
Arbor realtors are making a 20-
38 per cent profit, whereas in most
markets profits run from 10-13
per cent. It also cited the aver-
age rent in.the campus area as $60
per month.
-It criticized the University
for making decisions "slowly and
jpcorly" concerning its housing
plans. It cited Bursley Hall, which
was originally planned in 1958
but not actually begun until last
year, as an example of the slow
decision-making process.
It further stated that University.
residence halls and married stu-
dent housing are as expensive as
privately-owned housing.
-It charged that the Universi-
ty's rental agreement, which seeks
to protect both the realtor and
the' student, actually does little
on behalf of the student.
"It serves realtors because it al-
lows the University'to withold the
student's reregistration if he fails
to pay his' rent, while it holds no
