Re-Elec tion


Daily News Analysis
Voters from the third, fourth
and fifth wards, largely comprised
of middle-income family groups,
will decide whether to return their
Democratic incumbents or elect
Republicans to City Council in
tomorrow's election. All six candi-
dates are business or professional

the community's business, social,
I charitable, and civic organiza-
Students and other citizens will
select five councilmen to join five
others whose seats are not up for,
re-election. The new Council will
face issues such as low-rent hous-
ing, taxation, and civil rights when
they meet for the first time April 7.
Student-oriented issues have
been significant in campaigns in
the first and second wards, where
most students live. Very few stu-

dents live in the fourth and fifth
wards, located on the far west
side of Ann Arbor. The third ward,
extending directly southeast from
central campus, contains students
living in the Packard -State Street
In the third ward, Democratic
Councilman Robert Weeks, a pro-
fessor of English in the engineer-
ing school, is opposed by Republi-
can candidate Donald Kenney, an
Ann Arbor lawyer.
Both candidates said they fav-
ored student voter registration.
Weeks said he approved of the
position taken by the city clerk
in liberalizing residence require-
ments, but said there is a need
for further definition of residen-
cy by the state Legislature and
decisions of high courts.
Kenney said he approved of
student voter registration, and
that in this and other areas, no

one should not be excluded from
participation because he is a
He felt that there might be a
distinction between the student
poor and hard core poor such as
the elderly, the unemployable and
handicapped, and that it is up to
the Housing Commission to de-
termine whether such a distinction
exists in setting criteria for ad-
mission to possible subsidized low-
rent housing.
Kenney said, however, that this
does not mean students should be
excluded from public housing. "In
my opinion," he said, "it is the
obligation of society that every
individual capable of college level
work should never have to leave
school or face undue economic
hardship for economic reasons."
Weeks, who spoke in favor of
the proposal to apply for low-rent
housing funds from the federal
government defeated Monday
night, said "it is necessary to

Democratic councilman, is being
opposed by Republican J. Dale

ager, also at Bendix.I
Cappaert has noted that he
"pressed for full coverage to the
Fair Housing Orlinance, establish-
ment of the Housing Commission,

dedicated commissioners, and rec-
ognition in all areas of our re-
sponsibility in human relations."
Cappaert also said he would "con-
tinue to oppose the undue influ-
ence of speculators" in referring
to city planning.
Boyd has gone on record as
saying "the expansion of the tax
base with new industry is the
only sure way to keep taxes from
growing out of proportion to the
planned inflation of a Democratic
federal government."
He said he believes that "equal
rights and justice for all regard-
less of race, religion, color or fi-
nancial status, that private enter-
prise is a force for good, whose
intrinsic principles are right and
whose regulation should be no
more than is necessary to pro-
tect the public interest." He has
also said he believes that "re-
sponsibility in government means
freedom from domination by spe-
cial interest groups."

A NEW BOOK by Professor John W. Aldridge of the English
department has prompted a minor controversy in local literary
circles a week before its scheduled publication. The Centicore
Bookstore which will hold an autographing party next Tuesday
for Aldridge's new book of literary commentary, "Time to Murder
and Create," has been upstaged by two other local book
merchants. Both Folletts and Slater's have put the book on sale
in advance, ignoring telegrams from the publisher, David McKay,
requesting that the publication date Tuesday, April 5, be honored.
Centicore's autographing party set for that date from 4 to 6 p.m.
and 8 to 10 p.m. will host publishers representatives in addition
to the author.
Author Aldridge characterized the Follet and Slater move
as a "breach of etiquette."

THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE NORTH CAMPUS CEDAR BEND I complex is proceeding on schedule but may be cut short this May if
construction workers carry through their threat to strike.

A group of University teaching
fellows is organizing a union-type
group to protest to the adminis-
tration what they term low sal-
aries and poor working conditions.
"University teaching fellows are
existing on incomes that are low-
er than the poverty level," Steph-
en Grossbard of the political sci-
ence department said yesterday.
A mass meeting of teaching fel-
lows will be held Wednesday at
8:30 p.m. in the west lecture hall,
West Physics Building. The meet-
ing is being organized by Gross-
bard with the help of the Ameri-
can and Michigan Federations of
Teachers in an attempt to dem-
onstrate that many teaching fel-
lows are allegedly becoming dis-
contented with_ the "outrageous
conditions under which they must
live and work," Grossbard said.
Robert Rockaway of the history
department said he thought a
meeting to organize teaching fel-
lows was sorely needed because
"as long as we are separated like
this we have nothing to bargain
with." Rockaway said the situa-
tion "is really getting bad when
teaching fellows will take time off
from everything else they have to
do so that they can do something
like this."
David Katzman of the history
department said, "We want to
clarify our status as students or
faculty. When we- work we are
considered staff but when priv-
ileges enter the picture, such as
library or parking privileges, we
are students." Katzman- said he
felt this meeting would be a good
way to get the teaching fellows
together and determine their
basic grievances and desires.
The teaching fellows claim their
demands are perfectly reasonable.
The demands include a salary in-
crease, lower class sizes, better
office facilities, free tuition, staff
library privileges, income tax ex-
emption, and participation in the
University's Blue Cross-Blue Shield
Rockaway said that when an in-
dividual goes to the administra-
tion with a grievance his demands
are not given much weight, but
"if the administration is shown
that a good proportion of the
teaching fellows is dissatisfied,
then hopefully we will be given
a hearing."
Grossbard contended the teach-
ing fellows are badly hit by the
high cost of living because their
salaries are small, they usually
have no outside financial support
and often have families to support.
The average salary for teaching
fellows is $2400 per year, Gross-


Crises Hit Catholic Colleges

Arch shaped windows, construc-
tion workers and mud characterize
the five building expanse on North
Campus known as Cedar Bend I.
The projected date of comple-
tion for this huge housing com-
plex is August 15, 1966, housing
officers said recently. Postpone-
ment of this date is very possible,
however, if the Washtenaw County
Construction Trades Council goes
on strike as has been threatened.
Commenting on this situation,
Francis Shiel, Manager of Service
Enterprises, said, "Because this
is the year for negotiation and
since the demands which the
Trades Unions are making are
quite stiff, the possibility of a
strike is great."
Edward Kantzler, president of
the Construction Trades Council
said, "The problem is not one of
negotiation. Our primary grievance
is that the University will not
recognize us a a bargaining agent.
No specific demands have been
made as yet. When we try to talk
with University officials we re-
ceive a flat 'no' before we start."
A general membership meetingj
of the Construction Union is plan-
ned for the near future. At this
time, a decision will be made, on
the question of whether to strike
or not. Kantzler said, "I can not
speak for the whole board at this
time but as far as I am concerned,
striking is the only recourse which

signing a contract, every applicant
will know what the situation is
and what the possibilities of delay
However, housing officials have
indicated that it will be impossible
to convert any more dormitory
rooms to accommodate additional
students. Therefore, Cedar Bend
applicants may have to settle for
the crowded, temporary quarters
in libraries and lounges that an
overflow of students were forced
to accept in Fall, 1964.
At the present time, however,
work is going on as scheduled.
The five units when finished will
supply living quarters for 600
graduate students and upperclass-
men. Most of the rooms are ar-
ranged in a suite fashion with one
central study or living area and
bathroom for every 3 or 4 rooms.
There will be two vending ma-
chine centers within the five

No other arrangements have
been made to furnish food to the
students living in these areas.
There are no kitchen facilities in
the individual suites and no res-
taurant or dining room areas
where meals could be served on
a mass basis.
No counseling system of house
mothers, registered assistants and
other hired personnel will exist
in Cedar Bend.
Housing officials feel that this
arrangement would be the most
appropriate since Cedar Bend will
be housing- all upperclassmen and
Cedar Bend I is being partially
financed through the College
Housing Act. Funds now being
used for this project were granted
in the last fiscal year.
Only about 60 to 65 per cent of
the money used to build Cedar
Bend I comes from the CHA. The

remainder of the necessary funds
comes from private enterprises and
already existing sources of revenue
such as interest of investments.
Adequate transportation between
North Campus and the main cam-
pus will become increasingly im-
portant when more students are
concentrated on North Campus in
living quarters. Concerning this
problem, Richard Koester, Mana-
ger of Transportation Services,
said, "No definite plans have been
made as yet for next year. How-
ever, the problems are under con-
sideration at the present time."
"It will be necessary to re-
evaluate the situation concerning
frequency and number of buses
running between the two cam-
puses. Another point of considera-
tion will be the stops and where
they will be located on North
Campus. Any change in these will
be a direct result of Cedar Bend

Events in the past couple of
months at two leading Catholic
universities have pointed out the
growing crises in authority at
Catholic institutions.
A dispute over the phlisophy
department chairman's election at
Duquesne University in Pittsburgh,
Pa., and the current strike by pro-
fessors at St. John's University in
New York City, are only two ex-
amples of the growing tensions in
.The teachers' strike at St. John's

Picket lines are continuing at
the Jamaica, Queens, and Brooklyn
campuses of St. John's. Rev. Peter
O'Reilly, one of the leaders of the
first faculty strike against an
American university, recently es-
timated that about 100 teachers
are still striking.
O'Reilly reported that approxi-
mately 180 faculty members orig-
inally walked out. The adminis-
tration has reported, though, that
most classes are continuing and
things "are going as normal."

which could only result in the de-
struction of our school's identity
as a Catholic university."
Some finances for the strike are
being handled by the striking un-
ion. The New York branch of the
American Association of University
Professors passed a resolution at
its March meeting urging the na-
tional organization to raise $75,000
for the striking faculty members.
O'Reilly reported that it takes
about $10,000 a week to keep the
strike going. He mentioned num-
erous efforts to raise money: a

building complex.

Kamisar described his attitude
