Ann Arbor police made their fifth narcotics arrest in two days
last night when Michael McClatchey, '69, was apprehended and
charged with illegal sale of drugs; McClatchey has since been
released on bail. Monday, William Armour, Peter Boyd, Earl
Pole and Susan Briggs, '69, were arrested and charged with nar-
cotics violations.
John Feldkamp, assistant to the vice-president for student
affairs, said yesterday the University will confer with Miss
Briggs on her case.
Rep. Jack Faxon (D-Detroit) said yesterday that the audit
of the UniVersity's books by the state legislative auditor general's
office will not be completed for at least another month. The
auditor had been expected to release a report at the end of Sep-
tember, but Faxon said extra time is being required to obtain
comparative figures from Michigan State University and Wayne
State University.
The audit was initiated by Faxon's five-man subcommittee
of the Hodse Ways and Means Committee last summer, after the
University announced a tuition hike.

Twenty-five hundred more students signed petitions for a
University-sponsored discount bookstore yesterday, bringing the
total number of signatures obtained since the bookstore cam-
paign started to 8,000. Members of Student Government Council's
Committee on the University Bookstore revealed that they will
expand from their Diag base today to carry their campaign into
the dormitories, cooperatives, fraternities and sororities. Com-
mittee members will be available in the dorms to answer any
questions concerning the feasibility of a University Bookstore and
its financial implications for the student.

Vice-President for Student Affairs Richard L. Cutler yester-
day issued a statement deploring the behavior of a group of
University students who "invaded and did considerable damage
to the physical plant of Michigan State Univeristy." The students,
names withheld, .were retained by the civil authorities in East
Lansing. According to the text of the statement, "the University
of Michigan will not intercede with civil authorities in such cases
. . . but will initiate and sign complaints for the malicious de-
struction of property against any such students and pursue and
prosecute them through the courts on these charges."
John Feldkamp, assistant to the vice-president for student
.aff airs, indicated that this statement was not to be considered a
change in University policy and that it "applies to this week only."

Prof. William Frankena of the philosophy department, Prof.

Mayor Wendell E. Hulcher addressed a group of city clergy-
men and city officials last night to ask their support for an Ann
Arbor housing commission. The City Council passed an ordinance
to establish such a commission last week, but a group of local
citizens headed by George Lemble has since successfully petitioned
the council to put the matter before the people in a referendum
only two weeks away.
On campus, the housing commission issue cropped up when
the Young Republicans passed a resolution supporting Hulcher's
position on the commission and congratulating the council for its
action last week.
Residents of the Mapleridge Manor apartments presented a
petition to the City Council Monday night, claiming the manage-
ment had advertised to pay for cost of the air conditioning in
the normal rent- but now is charging tenants for the cost of
operating the units. City Attorney Jacob F. Fahrner Jr. said this

Court Case
Further, according to Ralph
Lloyd of the Ann Arbor Housing
Bureau, at least one of the own-
ers, Herman Ross, is being brought
to Municipal Court for a violation
of building regulations, and reli-
able authorities said similar pro-
ceedings are going on against a
second owner.
The violation stems from a city
ordinance which requires all resi-
dences to be officially inspected
and receive certification from city
building experts. Without certifi-
cation it is illegal for an owner
to collect rents.
Yet a large number of students
are paying rents under these cir-

The agreement was that they
would not have to pay rent until
the apartment was "livable," with
special reference to a shower,
which, along with rugs and ade-
quate bedroom furniture, .was not

moved in. Although they began
paying rents once the shower was
installed, the manager has now
asked that they pay the two
weeks' back rent. The students
have refused to do so.

OSA Has No Plans
For Further Political
Some literary college faculty
members have suggested that ac-
tion be taken to alleviate noise
and overcrowding in the Fish-
bowl because of desks and signs
devoted to political activity, Dean
William Haber of the literary col-
lege said yesterday.
Reliable sources disagreed, how-
ever, over whether noise and com-

question of free speech-specif-

dom-as the major point of con-
The issue was discussed at Mon-
day's meeting of the literary col-

OSA Study
The problem of overcrowding
and noise in the Fishbowl is
currently being studied by the Of-
fice of ' Student Affairs, Haber
added. Several proposals are be-
ing considered which might re-
strict the amount of political ac-
tivity which could take place si-
multaneously in the Fishbowl, he
said, but there are no proposals
which would prohibit all such ac-
tivity there. There is a standing
rule, at present which states that
no more than two tables for stu-
dent activities may be operated
at the same time in the Fishbowl.
Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs Richard L. Cutler said, how-
ever, that his office was planning
no further restriction on political
activity in the Fishbowl or any-
where else. However, the OSA is
concerned about defining its area
of responsibility in matters such
as regulation of activities in the
Fishbowl, Cutler said.
Cutler contended that noise and
overcrowding was not a prime is-
sue in the dispute over proper use
of the Fishbowl. The controversy
arose after the Student Non-Viol-
ent Coordinating Committee post-
ed a sign last month charging
that American soldiers are corL.
mitting war crimes in Viet Nam.

Cutler said he felt the dispute
was centered around the issue of

Roughly 1500 people attended Yom Kippur services at Hill Aud. last night to celebrate the traditional Jewish Holiday of fasting and
