Peace Group,
To Lobby in
Women for Peace
To March in Capitol,
Talk to Congressmen
Women for Peace, a national
organization dedicated to "a way
of settling world problems other
than killing," has planned a one-
day anti-war campaign in Wash-
ington for this morning.
The women will start off with a
march on the Capitol and will
spend the rest of the day talking
with their congressmen and sen-
ators lobbying for their objective!
of intensive efforts to bring a ne-
gotiated settlement to the Viet
am war, according to Mrs. John
Sondquist, Ann Arbor member.
Their general goal of promoting
diplomatic solutions to world prob-
r lems applies to Viet Nam in that
they believe no military solution
can be found for the conflict. A
strong force behind their efforts
is that many of the members have
sons presently involved in the war.
Though today's campaign will
be led mostly by members from the
East coast, especially New York
City, Women for Peace is national
in scope.
It was founded several years
ago by women concerned over fall-
out and its consequences on future
generations. At that time they
pushed for 'the signing of a test
ban treaty.
The group does not have a strict
formal structure: there are no
officers, no dues, no official mem-
bership. The number of supporters
is best measured by the subscrip-
tions to their newsletter, which in
Ann Arbor numbers 500.
Their major tool is lobbying as
exemplified in today's efforts.
They also throw their support be-
hind specific congressional leaders

Long Distance
The federal Department of Housing and Urban Development
has closed new applications for low cost loans to colleges for
construction of new housing units.
A huge volume of requests, prompted the suspension for the
remainder of the year, and a $4 million limit has been imposed on
each campus with outstanding applications. The limitation gives
priority to dining facilities and limts appropriations for service
The restrictions were said to be principally due to the tre-
mendous increase in enrollment at colleges and an increase in
the new housing interest rate. Total loans outstanding in the pro-
program amount to $678 million, and the figure is expected to top
$800 million before the requests currently being processed are
Roger Stevens, chairman of the President's National Council
on the Arts met with artistic directors William Ball of the Ameri-
can Conservatory Theatre and Ellis Raab of the Association of
Producing Artists in Washington, D.C., last night. He discussed
the possibility of allocating federal grants-in-aid to these com-
panies. All funds allocated by the government must be matched
equally by the beneficiaries. Announcements of who will receive
grants next year will be released later this month. The council
is meeting this weekend to make final decisions.
There may be a new rash of demonstrations in store for the
University of California at Berkeley.
The Viet Nam Day Committee, a student group which has been
sponsoring protests against the government's Viet Nam policy,
last week violated a university regulation by holding two protest
demonstrations within the same week. As a result, three student
leaders face trial today before university administrators, with the
possibility of expulsion.
Daily Californian City Editor John Stern said yesterday in a
telephone interview that there was a possibility that the expulsion
of the students might lead to wide-spread campus demonstra-
tions. He said he personally doubted that the students would be
expelled, but did not discount the possibility.
The VDC demonstrations took place last Monday and
Wednesday, one of them occurring at the home of a congressman
who is in support of the government's Viet Nam policy.
The Faculty Committee for Student Affairs of Michigan State
University said in its report yesterday that it is searching for a
definition of academic freedom which will allow for a maximum
of freedom and a necessary minimum of order, according to
Prof. Alfred Meyer of the Academic Council.
The full report will be released to The Daily tomorrow. The
report also outlined the investigation procedure and noted that the
American Association for University Professors has advocated
such an investigation.

House Voting
On Merger

Ballots To Determine'
Joining of IQC andl

Voting on the proposed constitu-
tion for th merger of Inter Quad-

Association by residence h a 11
houses continues as the Thursday
ratification day meeting ap-
In the men's dorms, 12 houses
have approved the merger con-
stitution, while one house has re-
jected it. Lee Hornberger, presi-
dent of IQC said that it appears
that the men's houses will ratify
the proposed constitution by the
required two-thirds majority.
Six more houses would have to
vote for the merger constitution
for it to be accepted by the men's
. Women's Housing
In women's housing, four houses,
all in Alice Lloyd, have voted to
reject the merger plan. One
women's house, Stockwell, report-
edly has approved the plan.
Should six more women's houses
vote against the plan, the merger
would be defeated.
A two-thirds vote of men's and
women's houses, separately, is
needed for ratification. If either
group votes against the measure,
it is defeated.
The house presidents of the
houses voting against the merger
constitution voiced support for a
group of students working to de-
feat the constitution written by
a joint IQC-Assembly committee.
Support Merger Idea
They affirmed, however, their
support of the idea of the merger,
but said they were simply voting
against the plan for the merged
body as presented to them for their
The houses can only accept or
reject the one constitution given
to them. The presidents will voice
the house votes in the meeting
tomorrow. The merger would form
a new co-ed dorm government,
Inter House Assembly.
Last Meeting
In its last meeting, IQC set as
Feb. 21 the date of election for
new officers, if the merger does
not come through. Some dissident'
men's house presidents had ob-
jected to the absence of an elec-
tion date as called for in the IQC
Therefore they declared the of-
fice of president of IQC vacant
and set Monday as the day for an
election to fill it. If the merger is
passed, that meeting will not be.
"For example," Bernstein not-
ed, "a history major specializing
in Southeast Asia will probably be
familiar enough with the Far
Eastern Studies department to
help a student interested in, say,
Japanese studies."
Furthermore, if today's seminar
is well-attended ,the committee
may be able to enlarge next term,

OSA Board
Students Blast 'U' for
Ignoring Their Views
On Housing Projects
The pilot student advisorycom-
mittee to the Office of Student
Affairs may be on the rocks, com-
mittee members said yesterday.
Set up this fall as a precedent
for student participation after
considerable agitation over the
housing situation in Ann Arbor,
the Student Housing Advisory
Committee was intended to give
the students a meaningful say in
the type of housing the University,
However, according to commit-
tee member Russell Linden, '67,
the committee has degenerated in-
to a "powerless farce." Linden
claimed that the administration
did not seriously consider the
recommendations of the students.
Pierpont's Refusal
He pointed to Vice-President.for
Business and Finance Wilbur K.
Pierpont's refusal to attend any
recent meeting of the committee
as indicative of the negative atti-
tude of the administration.
Linden also claimed that Pier-
pont obstructed the students access
to information on housing, and
ignored their advice in making
Pierpont refused to comment on
Linden's accusations last night.
Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs Richard Cutler, however,
claimed that the administration is
not working in bad faith and does
seriously consider the students'
Trusted Assistant
He said that he did not attend
any of the advisory committee's
meetings because he trusted his
assistant, Director of Student
Community R e 1 a t i o n s William
Steude, to deal with the students.
Cutler said that he believed that
Pierpont's reasons for not coming
to meetings was probably similar.
Another committee m e m b e r,
Stewart Gordon, '66, claimed that
Pierpont's representative at the
meetings did not give the students
the complete reasoning behind the
administration's housing policies.
Reacting to Gordon's he rge
Cutler said that he thought that
full explanations of policy were
being given to students and that
he would come to the committee's
next meeting.

These projects will be separate
from the Ann Arbor project, but
will also draw on University stu-

Began Four Years Ago
The project was started four
years ago with about 35 tutors.
Sleet, the present director, began
it after looking for someone to
tutor his younger brother. The
number of tutors increased stead-
ily in the next three years, but
there was a heavy turn-over.
An advisory board has been add-
ed and has succeeded in stabilizing
the project. There now are ad-
visors (usually graduate students
or faculty members) from the psy-
chology department for every six
tutors. The project now involves
about 250 tutors, each teaching
one student.
