What's New
City Council last night banned a demonstration, two marches
to and from the Homecoming football game and the use of a
loudspeaker on University property for a memorial service for the
dead in Viet Nam. Council approved two marches and the use
of a stationary loudspeaker for a demonstration on Friday. The
requests were brought before council by the Ann Arbor Viet Nam
Day Committee which is planning local action in connection
with the International Days of Protest October 15-16.
Voting on the Saturday activity ban went according to party
lines with the six Republicans for the ban and the five Democrats
against it.
Also, at a meeting last night, people interested in committing
civil disobedience this Friday in opposition to United States
involvement in the Vietnamese war tentatively decided to make
the Selective Service center in Ann Arbor the object of their

Gov. George Romney yesterday jumped into the melee
surrounding Attorney General Frank Kelley's ruling on the
proper relationship between the State Board of Education and.
the Legislature. Romney lined up with state board members and
Sens. Edward Robinson (D-Dearborn) and Roger Craig (D-
Dearborn) to back the attorney general's statement that the
Legislature cannot establish a new college without a prior recom-
mendation from the board.
Kelley issued his ruling, an informal opinion without force
of law, last Wednesday in connection with a bill to establish an
osteopathic college authority. The, state Senate angrily reacted
by immediately passing the bill without consulting the board.
The Jobs and Equality Committee of the Young Democrats
met with officials of union local 1583 of the American Federation
of State, County, and Municipal Employes. The committee re-
solved to work for University recognition of local 1583 as sole
bargaining agent for permanent University employes. "We have
to document cases in which the University has been grossly
negligent or unfair in its treatment of employes, and present
them to the public to arouse support for the union," Mark
Killingsworth, committee head, said. He noted this was an
opportunity for students to work on a problem not as remote
as Alabama, but here in Ann Arbor where they can stay long
enough to be effective.

Landlords will have three days to amend building code vio-
lations after being notified 04 4hem, it was reported at a meeting
of the Joint Commission of Low-Cost Housing last night. During
the coming week, commission members will check five buildings
cited in tenant grievance forms as being substandard. The com-
mission's complaints will be given priority by Roy Lloyd, city
building codes inspector, Commission Chairman Stu Gordon said.

Assembly House Council President Georgia Berland, '67, an-
nounced yesterday a change in the voting date of the Stockwell
controversy. A petition eliminating all Sunday dinners was signed
by Stockwell residents claiming the dinners are too time consum-
ing and make students feel like fourth-graders-unable to help
themselves in the' cafeteria line. A second issue was the amount
of kitchen help needed to serve them at these dinners. The
residents, unaware the petition concerned only themselves and
not the labor problem, will receive circulars this week explaining
the two issues. The vote will not take place Oct. 18.
The American Civil Liberties Union will delay bringing the
University of California at Berkeley to court for failing to renew
Eli Katz' teaching contract. Although Berkeley administrators
deny it, the ACLU says it has been informed that Katz, who was
previously, a temporary assistant professor of German will be re-
hired. The ACLU will postpone further action until it is
notified as to what new position Katz will 'be given. Katz was
dropped from the faculty in 1963, when he refused to comply
with the administration by answering questions about his political
The residential college curriculum will include a one-year
required science 'course with one semester of laboratory work
during the freshman or sophomore year, if the recom'mendation
passed yesterday by the student advisory committee to the
residential college is accepted by its counterpart, the faculty
committee. The committee discussed whether the proposed
course should be a traditional-style laboratory course, a series of
demonstration sessions or an unstructured laboratory course in
which the student would experiment individually on scientific
problems which interest him.

Dr. Harold F. Allen, research engineer at the University's
High Altitude Laboratory, will coordinate this week a series of
12 rocket experiments to be fired from three continental sites.
The purpose is to learn more about seasonal atmospheric con-
ditions. To accomplish this rockets will carry aloft an inflatable
sphere to measure air density and ejectable grenades for air
temperature measurements.


When the Ann Arbor voters
decide on Oct. 19, whether or not
to approve City Council's decision
of three weeks ago establishing
such a housing commission they
will be casting votes on a number
of individual questions, and they
will be responding to the efforts
of over 25 of the city's organiza-
The most fundamental of these
questions is simply whether Ann
Arbor needs such a commission.
The leader of the groups opposed
to an affirmative vote on Oct. 19,
George Lemble of .the Citizens'
Committee for Housing, contends
that at no time in the delibera-
tions of the council's housing
committee or at any time since
then has the need for the com-
mission been established.
First, Lemble points to the fact
that no specific formula for de-
termining need of a family has
been stated, income, property, etc.
Indications of need have been

revealed on an individual case
basis, Lemble maintains, but the
extent of this need, and whether
or not such need hierits the es-
tablishment of such a body as the
housing commission, are still open
No action to eliminate need in
the low-cost housing area should
be taken, according to Lemble
until an extensive survey has been
done to determine the extent of
the need.
The Federation for the Ann Ar-
bor Housing Commission, a group
made up of 19 organizations, in-
cluding the city's two political
parties,ttakes a considerably dif-
ferent stand.
Supporting completely the rec-
ommendation of the council's
committee for a housing commis-
sion, this group contends that the
need for low-income housing was
made clear in discussions with
members of charitable and welfare
agencies and "experts in public
housing and federal housing."
While the group has not sup-


Poses Complex Issues

ported any specific definition of
need, such as income alone, it has
implied agreement with the fed-
eral government's recommenda-
tion that a citizen "should not
have to pay more than 20 per
cent" of his income for housing.
In regard to the extent of the
housing need in Ann Arbor, they
cite the 1960 census and the Robin
Barlow report of 1964, which is hn
estimate of the number of poor
families in Ann Arbor based on
the census.
The census, according to Coun-!
cilman Robert Weeks of the fed-
eration, states that of 47,000
dwelling units in Ann Arbor, 2000
are substandard, including 1000
deteriorating and 200 dilapidated
The Barlow report concludes
that based on the 1960 census, 35
per cent of the nonwhite families'
in the city at the time of the'
census have incomes below basic
need expenditures. Thebfederation,
while conceding that the report is
not a perfect determination of
need, endorses it as a reliable es-

timate and believes that it, along
with the reports given the council
housing committee, is a reasonable
basis for action.
A valid door to door survey is
required of the commission by
state law before any projects are
undertaken, the Federation adds,
and at that time the cost of the
survey will be paid for with fed-
eral funds.
Lemble disregards the Barlow
report as at best unreliable, and
says that it is out of date, based
on arbitrary costs of living fig-
ures, and questionable definition
of poverty ($4000).
In the event a sizable need is
determined, the private enterprise
function could take care of the
need, if given the proper time,
according to Lemble. In the pres-
ent situation, the charitable and
welfare organizations of the city
are doing an adequate job.
The federation points to the fact
1) The commission will serve
as a clearing house and motiva-
tor for private action and

2) That the charitable and wel-
fare organizations themselves are
supporting the establishment of
the the commission.
The second area of controversy
centers around the control of the
commission by the council. Lem-
ble and the citizens' committee
for housing contend that because
of the broad language of the ordi-
nance and the powers allotted it
by the state law, it is a commis-
sion that could well operate above
and beyond the approval and will
of council.
The Federation points to the
language of the state law and the
testimony of city officials in this
regard. The law states that Coun-
cil has the obligation of approving
or rejecting all appointments to
the commission, and that all
deeds, contracts, leases and pur-
chases of the commission must
also be approved* by the council
with bond issues to be authorized
by a city ordinance.
Guy Larcom, city administrator,
and the city attorney have said
the control of the council over the

commission is adequate and con-
The last major area of contro-
versy is the question of whether
the establishment of the commis-
sion would result in an increase
in taxes.
The federation argues that
there will be no notable increase.
Lemble argues that because of
administrative costs and because
houses bought by the commission
will be removed from the tax roll,
the cost to the taxpayer will be
The federation replies that in
regard to the tax roll, the com-
mission must make payment in
lieu of taxes, and that these have
in some cities brought greater
income to the city than the taxes.
The federation admits that there
will be administrative costs, but
contends that these will be minor,
and cites the statement of the
city administrator that the sav-
ings to the city because of the re-
duced welfare, health and con-
demnation costs would actually
pay for part of this.

May Hinder Relations
Between 'U' Students
Student Government Council has
requested Vice-President for Stu-
dent Affairs Richard L. Cutler to
make a thorough examination of
the relationship between the Uni-
versity and foreign students.
The request grew out of a pro-
posal passed by SGC at last
Wednesday's meeting. The exam-
ination, 'proposed by SGC Vice-
President Charles Cooper, '66, and
constitutents James Wall and
Larry Grate, both '69, will include
a review and critique of the as-
sumptions involved in construct-
ing a new International Center in-
dependent of the Student Activi-
ties Bldg.
In addition, SGC requests in-
ternational coordinators to work
with other student organizations
to sponsor hearings where stu-
dents, faculty and administrators
can voice opinions on the effec-
tiveness of current foreign student
programming and the University
philosophy of the role of the for-
eign student.
The proposal was primarily in-
itiated to reinstate SGC's interna-
tional affairs policy. According to
Cooper, many American students
h a v e expressed disappointment
lately because only a fraction of
the foreign student population is
housed in dormitories.
Also, many foreign students and
American students have criticized

that "it promotes no motivation

They feel, he said, the foreign
student is restricted in his free-
dom to take part in political acti-

SC believes "it is a prime re-
sponsibility of the University to
develop the opportunity for mu-
tual understanding of cultures,
societies and traditions" of for-
eign countries. The Council views
the proposal for the establishment
of a new International Center as
a key factor which would "destroy
many opportunities for informal
American-foreign relationships."

Police -Catch
Scalpers of
Game 'Tickets
Hearing for Twenty,
Mostly Students, To
Be Held This Week .
Ann Arbor police yesterday
officially booked five University
students for scalping tickets prior
to the Michigan State-University
football game.
About 20 people, mostly stu-
dents, were apprehended at the
Michigan Union. Allegedly, they
were trying to sell the tickets for
as much as $12.50 each.
None were taken into custody
at that time by the police but
were told to report this week.
Their cases will be heard in Muni-
cipal Court. Should they plead
guilty the judge could impose
either a fine or a jail sentence.
If any should choose to contest,
the judge would then set bond.#
Joel M. Bernstein, chairman,
and Barbara Stapp, vice-chair-
man of the Joint Judiciary Coun-
cil stated "scalping tickets is a
civil and University offense. You
may not sell or give your student
football ticket packet to anyone."~

"You may sell the general ad-
mission tickets if you have them,,
but for no more than $5, the price
that they sell for," they said.
All University students duringl
registration are allowed to pur-
chase a football ticket coupon for
$12. This can then be traded in atI
the Intramural Bldg. during the
first week of classes for a book
of six homegame football tickets.
In the past there has been much1
selling of tickets among students
with prices a little higher than
the cost of the ticket per student.I

One Million Hear Debateon
Viet Nam and Latin America

Over one million people from
the United States and Canaday
attended the Toronto teach-in;
last weekend. The teach-in, call-
ed "the largest to date" by the
Toronto Star, concentrated on .
Cold War conflict in Latin America;
and Southeast Asia.
The first session, titled "Revol-
lution and Ideological Conflict,"
included a debate between V. Ne-
krasov, chief foreign editor of
Pravda, and Z. K. Brzezinski, di-
rector of Columbia University's j
Communist Affairs Research In-
stitute. Nekrasov termed American1
foreign policy "a program of mis-
conceptions directed toward na-
tional interest and profiteering."
Brzezinski claimed that the U.S.
must insure that revolutions in
underdeveloped countries are not
taken over by "national libera-
tion movements" like the Soviet]
Union is pledged to*support ac-
cording to Nekrasov.
The crowd of 6,000 cheered
Nekrasov's description of U.S.
policy in Viet Nam as "armed in-
tervention in the affairs of an-
other nation" but hissed when he
declined Brzezinski's challenge tot
show he was free to criticize
Soviet policy.
