Regarding New Eight
Month Lease Option
By SUSAN ELAN
The Off-Campus Housing bro-
chure, long delayed due to print-
ing problems, is now available at
the Student Activities Building.
The purpose of this brochure is
to acquaint students, parents, and
Ann Arbor property owners with
the University's off-campus hous-
ing program and to describe the
Off-Campus Housing Bureau's
The booklet is an enlarged ver-
sion of last year's pamphlet with
two major innovations. Behind the
photograph of theb'campus on the
cover, the new brochure includes
a checklist of things to look for
when choosing an apartment or
furnished room, and an explana-
tion of the eight-month lease op-
The section on the eight-month
lease option explains that several
property owners are offering
eight-month leases with accom-
panying increases in rents to com-
pensate for added operational costs
and rental risks.
To encourage the use of eight-
month leases the University will
no longer take disciplinary action
against students who do not meet
the requirements of a year lease
while they are not enrolled in
In spite of this, University Tow-
ers is the only major apartment
using the eight-month lease op-
tion, and it will raise rents on
-ight-month leases by 25 per cent.
r'The checklist was designed to
bring to the attention of the
student the important factors to
be considered when choosing an
apartment. It is a list of 25
partment features such as cer-
tification by the city of Ann Ar-
bor, adequacy of storage room
b r ad q ay o st rg rom11proper. lighting, and general size
in relation to the number of oc-
cupants. Each feature 'is to be
graded by the student from excel-
lent to poor.
It is hoped that this will make
the student consider more than
just the attractiveness of furni-
ture and modern conveniences
when choosing an apartment.
A section on costs indicates in-
creased rents for next year. The
booklet states that "each student
may expect to pay between $50
(very low) and $75 as his month-
ly share in two-, three-, four-, or
five-man furnished apartment."
The rest of the brochure dis-
cusses eligibility and procedures
for moving off-campus, inventory
cards, parking and transportation,
and complaints and mediation.

When news came of the death of
Aref, 45, in a crash Wednesday
night near the Persian Gulf port
of Basra, the man regarded wide-
ly as a possible successor to the
presidency was in'Moscow.
Abdel Rahman Aref
This is Aref's brother, Gen. Ab-
del Rahman Aref, army chief of
staff, who was in the Soviet Union
on an arms buying mission. A dis-
patch from Moscow said he would
fly back to Iraq today.
Should the general become pres-
ident, he presumably would fol-
low his brother's policy of fav-
oring union with President Gamal
Abdel Nasser's United Arab Re-
public. Burned by the breakup of
his union with Syria, Nasser has
reacted cautiously to Iraqi merger

Only it wasn't a party. And it wasn't booze. It is one of the most unusual stories
ever fashioned for the screen: nine men-whose very lives turn on a startling, ironic
twist of fate in -a cauldron called a desert.
To make this dramatic best-seller into a film, producer-director Robert Aldrich chose
his stars from the award-winning talents of six nations. He led cast and crew into
the desert to forge a unique drama that has its own place in the sun. And now,
