yesterday that the judge's ruling
would not influence a later hear-

Public Act 379 which was pass-

to Michigan's basic labor legisla-

The first .draft of requirements for low income housing was
presented to the Ann Arbor Housing Commission Thursday
night by two of its commissioners.
Of particular interest is the eligibility policy, which limits
admission to those :
-Who qualify as family (as defined by the lengthy criteria
-Whose net income after allowable exemptions and assets
does not exceed $2,600 for a single person, $4,400 for two persons,
$5,300 for a five-person family, and $6,600 for a family of 10
or more;
-Who have been Ann Arbor residents for at least' a year;
-Who have been, or are about to be displaced from adequate
housing through no fault of their own.
The proposal by the Harvard Undergraduate Council for
an exchange program with several other schools, including the
University, appears to be seriously blocked by the opposition of
the Harvard administration, according to Henry Sondheimer,
chairman of the committee investigating the exchange proposal.
In an interview yesterday, Sondheimer said that the HUC
is preparing a report to the faculty on the suggestion of a recip-
rocal exchange of students for a semester between universities of
different size, location and nature. He said that in talks with
Dean Munro of Harvard College and Nathan Pusey, president of
Harvard, it was learned that the administration was opposed to
the idea.
Sondheimer felt that the suggestion would likely have
trouble overcoming the opposition of the faculty, despite the
support of such professors as David Riesman. Sondheimer
expects the report to be considered by the faculty sometime in
Two ex-Marineswere acquitted Thursday night on acharge
a of assault and battery on an anti-Viet Nam war picket who
refused to lower his sign while the American flag was passing.
The incident occurred October 16, when the two veterans
allegedly assaulted a picketing University student during the
University's Homecoming Parade.
The jury deliberated two hours and 35 minutes , before re-
turning the not guilty verdict which ended the all-day trial.
The City Council-created Sesquicentennial Commission is
seeking donations from business, industry and private individuals
to help the University celebrate its 150th birthday next year.
A minimum of $45,800 in donated funds is needed. In addition
to donations, the commission was allocated $7,500 by the council,
bringing the total budget to $53,300.
The University expects to raise at least $55 million by the
Sesquicentennial to be used in establishing new educational
facilities which will be locally beneficial.
Plans for the 1966 Winter Weekend "Operation M-Trigue"
are well under way, according to General Co-Chairmen Pat
McCarty, '67, and Tom Sherman, '66. The first event scheduled
in the secret scheme of events is a treasure hunt, to be held
on Friday morning, Feb. 25.
The highlight of that evening will be the program of skits,
each built around a general spy theme,, and presented by five
sorority-fraternity or dorm combinations. Preliminary judging
will be held on Jan. 24 and 25 to select the five skits which will
be performed.
On Saturday, Feb. 26, a variety of booths will be open in
the IM Building, featuring different skills and entertainment.
Johnny Rivers is tentatively scheduled to appear at a dance
ifk in the building on Saturday night, probably with several other
bands, but there will be no concert as originally intended.
Trophies will be awarded for the best booths, and one overall
prize given to the group which contributed the most to the

37.8 Million,
Campaign Reported
Ahead of Schedule
At Halfway Point
The University's campaign to
raise $55 million in private con-
tributions passed the half-way
point this week, and National
Chairman Paul Goebel expressed
confidence that the goal would be
met by the target date of Coin-
mencement Day, 1967.
The total received at the end
of 1965, not quite the half-way
mark in the campaign schedule.
was $37.8 million, far surpassing
the $27.5 million year end goal.
The principal factor in the cam-a
paign's success was the $10 mil-
lion gift from the automobile in-
dustry for the creation of a High-
way Safety Research Institute.
Goebel said, however, that eveni
without the unexpected gift from
the automobile industry the cam-
paign would have met its half-
year goal.
Sources Remain
Goebel emphasized that there
still exists an untapped reservoir,
of major donors, those able to{
contribute more than $10,000 toI
the campaign. Only 25 per cent
of these major donors, whose po-
tential gifts are projected to range
up to $1 million, have been as-
signed to volunteers for negotia-
tions, and thus Goebel is confi-
dent that there is a great deal of
contributions still to come from
private sources.
Unsure whether the activities of
the Viet Nam p'rotestors have ac- 7
tually damaged the campaign,,
Goebel did say that he felt that
there were a number of alumni
who felt that the sit-in at the,
selective service board last Oc-
tober had "damaged the image of
their alma mater.",
