Approval of
New Leases
In Question
'U' May Withdraw
Certification from
Apartments Limited
The University's Off - Campus
Housing Bureau has raised objec-
tions to a new lease form used by
Apartments Limited that would
eliminate the lessor's liability in
cases of personal injury occuring
on the premises.
Problems arose initially when
the Off-Campus Housing Bureau
returned Apartments Limited's
original lease without approval.
,The bureau suggested that several
changes had to be made in the
lease before it could receive Uni-
versity approval. A revised lease
was submitted with.the provision
concerning personal liability in-
William Stuede, director of Stu-
dent - Community Relations, will
examine the lease tomorrow and
is expected to make a decision
then concerning its acceptability.
If the Off-Campus Housing Bu-
reau does not approve the lease
and Apartments Limited refuses
to nake the requested changes in
the agreement, Apartments Limit-
ed would lose its University ap-
proval. This would mean that jun-:
ior women would not be able to
move into any of the company's
apartments covered by the lease.
All other students are not covered
by University regulations regard-
ing approved housing.
Commenting on the legality of
the clause, Thomas Browng assist-
ant to the director of Student-
Community Relations, who holds a
law degree said that he considered
the portion dealing with personal
injury as questionable. The key to
the matter appears to hinge on the
phrase "provided lessor maintains
premises," which Brown termed
"extremely vague."
Brown pointed out that a clause
releiving lessors of' liability con-
cerning damage caused by wind
storms and things of this nature
is often included in a lease since
insurance against damage from.
such causes is almost impossible
to obtain. He also explained that
lessors are not usually held liable
for personal property damage
since lessees can insure this them-
In reference to personal injury,
however, Brown said that Apart-
ment Limited's policy was not us-
ual. The vagueness of the main-
tenance clause made the position
of the renter very unclear.
The Student Housing Associa-
tion plans to ask Stuede not toI
approve the lease and to request
further changes. George Steeh, a
spokesman for SHA, urged stu-
dents not to sign the lease as it
stands until the bureau has made
a declison on the matter. Steeh
also suggested that, "All students
who have already signed a lease
with Apartments Limited for next
year or who are considering sign-
ing a lease should request that the
clause be changed or deleted."
The clause in question reads,
"The lessor shall not be liableafor
any injuries to personal property,
to said premises, or said lessee or
other persons arising from the
building or appurtance thereof be-
coming out of repair, oi resulting
from accident; fire, windstorm,
theft, mysterious disappearance,
explosion, freezing, bursting, leak-
ing or backing up or overflowing
of water, gas, sewer, steam pipes,
or any plumbing connected there-;

with, or from damage caused by
defective wiring, provided lessor
reasonably maintains premises;
nor shall lessor be responsible for
any loss of personal property aris-
ing from the above causes."

Late World News
LANSING W)-State Rep. Joseph J. Kowalski (D-Detroit),
the House Democratic Leader, died yesterday of the massive
brain hemorrhage he suffered Thursday.
The 56-year-old Kowalski, who was Speaker of the House
in 1965-66, and minority floor leader from 1959 to 1964, had been
unconscious and in extreme critical condition since collapsing
during a Democratic leadership meeting in his office,
Kowalski, who represented the northwest Detroit 19th Dis-
trict, had been a member of the House since 1948.
An attorney and graduate of Valpariso University, Kowalski
was a former international representative and assistant education
director of the United Auto Workers Union. He had been an ad-
visor on worker education to the U.S Department of Labor.

THE APA-PHOENIX REPERTORY Company has been given
a $17,000 grant by the United States Information Agency making
it possible for the company to perform at Expo 67 in Montreal.
The company will be the only American drama troupe at the
fair. It will do two plays at the Maisonneuve Theatre Oct. 9 to
14, but the plays have not been selected yet.
According to T. Edward Hambleton, managing director of the
company, the group wll have to raise another $17,000 from pri-
vate sources in order to make the trip.
The troupe will add three plays to its repertory for the next
season: Michel de Ghelderode's "Pantagleiz," Eugene Ionesco's
"Exist ihe King" and, possibly, George Kelly's "The Show-Off."
Helen Hayes has been mentioned for the cast of the Kelly play.
The APA-Phoenix will be at the University from Sept. 18
to Nov. 4.
announced to the MSU Board 'of Trustees approval of a new
policy which would allow for the dismissal of tenured faculty
members. Under the procedure, the faculty member would be in-
formed df the charges against him and granted a hearing.
The policy calls for the dismissal only on the grounds of gross
violation of professional ethics or incompetence. Hannah added
that during his 26 years at the University he could not recall a
single case where the policy might have been employed.
A STUDENT PRANK has made over a thousand students in
residence halls unwitting subscribers to Life magazine. Pre-paid
reply envelopes containing addressed order cards for the magazine
were collected by pranksters'during a subscription campaign in
January, and returned as regular orders. The processing was
done in Chicago and students are receiving the first issue of a
23-week subscription this week, along with a bill for $1.97.
The cards were available because Life failed to include room
numbers on the addresses. Mail handlers in at least three dormi-
tories placed the third class letters on tables and instructed resi-
dents to find their own to avoid looking up individual numbers.
A student or group of students apparently detached the reply
cards and mailed them.
Students who do not notify Life that they wish to cancel
their subscriptions will be liable for the subscription price, a Life
spokesman said yesterday. One quadrangle director has already
sent an explanation to the magazine asking that all the subscrip-
tions be cancelled. But students who have received the bills and
do not desire to retain the subscription are advised to bring their
bills to their quadrangle mail rooms or to send in an individual
cancellation notice immediately.

Special To The Daily
CHICAGO-In their final ruling
on the Illinois slush fund case,
the Big Ten Faculty Representa-
tives yesterday told University of
Illinois President David D. Henry
that if Coaches Pete Elliott, Har-
ry Combes and Howard Braun are
still retained on ,the Illinois ath-
letic staff by March 21, Illinois
would be indefinitely suspended
from the conference.
Michigan law Prof. Marcus
Plant, secretary of the Big Ten
Faculty Representatives, stated in
a press conference that "there is
no more possible appeal" available
to Illinois to protest the decision.
The faculty group handed down
the decision after a special eight-
hour meeting which included a
four-hour presentation by Henry.
Henry's speech was an appeal
against a ruling made by the fac-
ulty group on March 3 which
told Illinois to "show just cause"
why its membership in the con-
ference should not be suspended
or terminated if they chose to re-
tain the three coaches on their
athletic staff.
Plant stated that the faculty
vote was eight for and one against
the ruling, with Illinois abstain-
ing. He did not elaborate on which
was the lone dissenting school,
saying, "I am not authorized to
reveal that school."
The faculty representatives came
out with a definite statement on
what the suspension of Illinois
from the conference would entail.
The statement was:
"During the period of suspen-
sion, should it exist, the status of
the University of Illinois would be
the same as that of any other
non-conference institution."
Plant went on to say, "The Uni-
versity of Illinois would be sus-
pended from any privileges of a
conference member as well as ab-
solved from any conference obli-
Henry did not make any official
comment, but indicated through
Plant that he had to consult with
the Faculty Senate Committee on
Athletics and the Board of Di-
rectors of the Illinois Athletic
Association before making a reply.
Plant emphasized that the fac-
ulty representatives chose to de-
mand the suspension of Illinois
(providing it retains the three
coaches) as opposed to the term-
ination of its membership in the
conference because "suspension
carries with it the 'possibility of
future reinstatement."
The faculty group did not spe-
cify how long the possible sus-
pension- could or would last, nor
did they make a ruling on the
conditions ofnreinstatement after
the suspension.
"It would be possible for Illinois
to reapply for conference mem-
bership after a suspension though
if it still kept Elliott, Combes and
Braun on its athletic staff," Plant
pointed out. "I wouldn't know what
would happen if they did reapply."
For the University of Illinois
to escape the suspension, football
Coach Elliott, basketball Coach
Combes and basketball assistant
Braun have to be removed from
their coaching positions. The rul-
ing also prevents them from coach-
ing other intercollegiate sports or
being in any way connected with
"the direction or administration of
intercollegiate athletics at the Uni-
versity of Illinois."
Another stipulation given by
Plant was that Elliott, Combes and
Braun could not be hired by any
other Big Ten university after
their dismissal from Illinois.
The only alternatives averting a
suspension that Dr. Henry has are:
" The resignations of all three
" The outright firing of them

n htees.

Henry was the only person who
went before the Faculty Repre-
sentatives to plead the Illinois
case. Although Plant would not
comment on the contents of the
presentation, Henry stated last
week that he was going to repeat
