Students Display Concern over High-Cost H

By BRUCE WASSERSTEIN
The issue of high cost student
housing was raised yesterday in
an afternoon meeting between
student representatives and Uni-
versity administrators; 'a noon-
time diag rally and an evening
session of the Voice Housing Com-
mittee.
In an afternoon conference rep-
resentatives from Student Govern-
ment Council and Graduate Stu-
dent Council met with Vice-Presi-
dent for Business and Finance
Wilbur K. Pierpont and Vice-Pres-
ident for Student Affairs Richard
Cutler.
Cutler agreed to start working
today on the establishment of a
student advisory committee with-

in the Office of Student Affairs
which will actively participate in
the planning of future housing
projects:
The possibility of setting up
similar groups elsewhere in the
administration was also discuss-
ed, but no decisions were made.
Pierpont agreed to make avail-
able to "responsible students"
more detailed information about
the University's financial opera-
tions including a breakdown of
dormitory costs. He also express-
ed a .willingness to discuss possi-
ble shifts in University invest-
ment policies with students.
At the noontime diag rally, an
estimated crowd of 200 listened to
speakers complaining 'about the

inadequacies of the University's
present housing policies. This rally
was basically a prelude to the more
lengthy discussion of the housing
issue in the evening.
Russell Linden, '67, who repre-
sented SGC at the afternoon con-
ference, presented the results of
the discussion with Pierpont to
last night's meeting sponsored by
Voice.
In response to his report and an
analysis of current problems in
the student housing situation and
possible alternatives presented by
Stewart Gordon, '66, chairman of
Voice's housing committee, the
students present voted for the fol-
lowing demands:
-The University administration

should issue a policy statement on
its use of federal funds for hous-
ing projects. Gordon charged that
Pierpont does not use as much
federal funds as possible in Uni-
versity projects because of his
"laissez faire" economic attitudes.
According to Gordon, federal
housing loans which he said could
be obtainable at rates as low as
2.6 per cent would greatly reduce
the costs of building apartments
and dorms.
-The office.of business and fi-
nance should issue a detailed
breakdown of the costs incurred.
in running the residence hall sys-
tem. Although Pierpont assented
to this demand yesterday at the
afternoon conference, the students

at last night's meeting felt that
they wanted to be sure that .this
promise will be made good in the
near future.
Interim Report
-University President Harlan
Hatcher's Blue Ribbon, Commis-
sion on Housing should issue an
interim report .in the immediatel
future. Gordon said that this com-
mittee's report, which is supposed
to examine the broad question of
student housing, has been delayed
since last May. Members of the
committee have recently said that
their report will be issued in four
weeks.
-The University should issue
a policy statement on high rise
apartment buildings.

-Viable alternatives to the
present housing policies of the
University should be considered by
administrators. Among the alter-
natives suggested was the Uni-
versity selling land to a non-
profit student - faculty group,
which, according to Gordon, would
be eligible for federal housing
loans under the College Housing
Act of 1950. Gordon also pointed
out other federal housing finance
law of which the University has
failed to take advantage.
Present Demands
The group agreed to present
their demands to the office of
business and finance this week
and asked that an administrator
publicly acknowledge the receipt

of the student's proposals at a
Diag rally Friday.
The students voted to give the
administration about a week to
study the demands and proposals
after which aUniversity official
should give a public defense of
present housing policies or an-
nounce changes.
If officials do not acknowledge
publicly the receipt of the de-
mands, students at the Friday
rally will then vote on what course
of action to follow.
Meanwhile the students present
at last night's meeting decided to
hold a noon rally today to help
drum up support for a low cost
housing movement. In addition to
the rally, tables will be set up in

prominent positions for students
to submit housing grievances and
suggestions and a speaker's pro-
gram will' be set up in the dorms
to discuss the issue.
Among the actions which may
be taken at that time are a sleep-
in on the diag or a sit-in in
Pierpont's office. These two al-
ternatives were mentioned promi-
nently at last night's meeting.
Speakers at the meeting stress-
ed the need for a "grass roots"
movement of students who are in-
terested in the housing issue.
Gordon said that overt student
support in the thousands, rather
than the present hundreds, is nec-
essary for a successful low cost
housing movement.

What's New,
I, At 764- 1817
Hotline
"There are now over 1000 registered rushees, and we expect
F over 1500 men to rush this fall," Interfraternity Council President
Richard Hoppe, '66, said last night after ,a mass rush meeting
attended by "approximately 650 men." Last fall 936 men rushed
and 480 pledged.

The. Professional Theatre Program announced yesterday that
Rosemary Harris and Sydney Walker will be the leading players
in its world premier production of Herakles, a new play by
' Archibald MacLeish.
The Interfraternity Council executive committee last night
levied a penalty of 400 man-hours of charitable work against
Sigma Alpha Epsilon for' "assaulting" three girls-specifically,
dragging one of the girls into a cold shower-who were walking
across the SAE lawn, violating a fraternity tradition. Although the
Scommittee recognized that there was no malicious intent. it ruled
that, if the work is not completed by the actives and present
pledges of SAE by April1, 1966, the fraternity-will be fined $1000.
Fall term degree candidates who expect to graduate at the
end of this term should submit a diploma application to the
registrar's office not later than Sept. 17. Literary college students
may obtain application forms at window A in the foyer of the
Administration Bldg.; other candidates should apply at their
school's office. Students who have already submitted an applica-
tion gned not bother with this procedure.
Approximately 33 per cent of all undergraduate credit hours
in the literary college are in classes taught by teaching fellows,
according to the Center for research on Learning and Teaching's
"Memo to the Faculty." Freshman and sophomore classes have
these graduate students as instructors in 45 per cent of their
classes. oliere are more than 950 teaching fellows throughout
the University, many "stepping 'to the other side of the desk'
for the first time," the memo reports.
In a bold move aimed at cutting into the lucrative parlor
'4 game's market, the editors of Gargoyle have created "Michio-
poly," and are distributing it in their new issue, on sale today.
Included in this year's first effort are "The Diary of a Sorority
Girl" and the mystery of "The Disappearing Freshman."
The recent extension of the National Defense Education Act
will provide fellowships for an increasing number of University
graduate students, Associate Dean Freeman Miller of the graduate
school said yesterday. According to a Department of Health,
Education and Welfare announcement, over 3,000 three-year
fellowships have been awarded; the fellowships are applicable to
virtually'all major fields on study.

In certain designated areas owners of motorcycles and
scooters may park their vehicles at an angle to the curb without
fear of being ticketed by the Ann Arbor police. However, angular
parking in non-designated areas violates a local parallel parking
ordinance which recently has been strictly enforced.
The Interfraternity Council executive committee last night
fined Alpha Tau' Omega $300 for excessive noise and the con-
4sumption of alcoholic beverages on Aug: 23.
Wiretap
In the face of mounting student pressures for low-cost hous-
ing, a knowledgeable observer -of the Ann Arbor housing situation
pointed to what he termed -"the basic impossibility of building
well-designed and constructed housing at low cost within a rea-
sonable distance of the campus." He pointed to rapidly rising
construction costs, high University building standards and a
general shortage of housing. as factors in his assessment.
Long Distance
The International Association of Universities, a worldwide
S body of leading educators, has adopted for study a report
advocating that professors spend their sabbatical year on the
faculty of a university in an underdeveloped country. The action
was 'takens Monday at the closing session of the organization's
fourth general conference, held in Tokyo. University President.
Harlan Hatcher was among the 500 educators in attendance.

tary aid deliveries to the two

sistance programs are now being
reviewed-and these aid programs
give the Johnson administration
plenty of leverage to exert pres-
sure on the disputants.
The United States has granted
more than $6.5 billion in aid to
India since 1956, not including a
monthly shipment of 600,000 tons
of wheat to alleviate the Indian
food deficit. Pakistan has received
more than $5 billion in American
economic aid since 1951.
However, Washington is celay-
ing the fulfillment of foreign aid
commitments to that government
because of President Mohammed
Ayub Khan's dealings with Com-
munist bloc nations. Ayub has de-
clared that Pakistan will not sever
its new ties with the Communist
states.
Indian Criticism
The U.S. has also come in for
criticism from India's Prime Min-
ister Lal Bahadur Shastri, who
has attacked American policies in
the Vietnam war and specifically
has called for an immediate halt
to the bombing of North Viet
Nam.
In addition to economic aid, the
