Dr. John Fuzak, MSU vice president for student affairs, said

Legal Moves Planned
To Improve Housing
The StudentBERental Union
(SRU) tomorrow will begin pre-
paring for some form of collective
student action against at least one
Ann Arbor landlord by collecting
complaints from students at a
table in the Fishbowldaccording
to RSU organizer Richard Fire-
stone, '67.
SRU is also currently planning
strategy for a law suit against an
undesignated local landlord as a
test case on damage deposit and
contract abuses, according to Tom
Van Lente, '67, chairman of the
Student H ousing Association
SRU also plans to work for a
standard eight-month lease, a
neutral assessor for apartment
damage, and a ranking system for
apartments, landlords and. man-
agement companies.
Improved Position
These activities, according to
Firestone, will result in a long-
range improvement in the 'stu-
dent's position in the off-campus
housing market.
SRU was recognized as a sub-
committe of SHA two weeks ago
by the Student Government
Firestone said that the com-
plaint table in the Fishbowl will
be set up until Wednesday. After
that, students can bring com-
plaints to the SRU office, 1528
Student Activities Building,, he
Filing Complaints
After complaints have been re-
ceived, SRU will file them with
the Off-Campus Housing Bureau.
Complaints regarding substand-
ard housing will be filed with the
Ann Arbor building inspector.
SRU plans to send letters of
complaint to the landlords or man-
agers indicated. Members will
complain in person to any man-
agter who does not respond to. the
letter ,according to Firestone.
SRU will also use the student
legal aid service to determine the
legal rights of tenants.
According to Firestone, "the key
to the success of SRU is a broad
base of student support.
"If there are enough students
who are willing to bring com-
plaints and take action against a
particular landlord, the group
should be able to achieve some of
its goals."


nell said, "Your average income
is about a century. behind the
times too" and "is going to stay
disproportionately low until the
practice of law has the" same
massive scientific foundation to it
that the medical and engineering
professions have now."
Summarizing data gleaned from
several different types of labora-
tory experiments, McConnell dis-
cussed "The Psychology of Im-
peachment." Impeachment is the
courtroom examination by an at-
torney demonstiating to the jurors
that a witness called by the other
side is unworthy of belief.
Sophmoric Sources
Using scientific data from "the
psychologist's favorite experiment-
al animal, the college sophomore"
he showed that if an examining
attorney puts strong social press-
ures on witnesses by making them
believe they're out of step with
everyone else, then the witnesses
change their original opinions and
thus lack credibility in the jury's
McConnell cited to show that 99
per cent of sophomores who are
shown a line 8 inches long and an.-
other 9 inches long identify the
longer one properly. But if sev-
eral confidantes paid to lie about
the matter declare their judg-
ments before the student makes
his, "almost two-thirds of the

sophomores are likely to report
that they too believe the 9 inch
line to be shorter!"
Suggesting that the trial lawyer
should constantly watch for a
witness with the proper "yielding"
personality, McConnell stated that
typically this person is a "per-
missive, self-deprecating indivi-
dual who had harsh parents who
kept him as close to the nest as
long as they could." Lab experi-
ments show that in court "such
a witness could surely be brought
to contradict himself if he were
led to believe that a large group
of highly qualified experts had
said just the opposite of what he
had himself reported earlier." In
fact, McConnell stated "the ex-
aminer constitutes a strong press-
ure group all by himself."
Help Witness Yield!
He further said that "if you
want the witness to move just a
little way towards your position,
you may find it advisable to take
an extreme position so that he can
yield a fair -amount but, since he
doesn't go all the way, he can
maintain his belief that he was
not swayed by your own position
on the matter. This is the 'anchor
effect' or the psychological w.ar-
fare we call good old-fashioned,
market place bargaining."
