Differ

on 'Need

for

Ann Arbor

Reform

By GREG ZIEREN
"If I were to try to describe
our city in two words only we'd
probably finally settle on 'Dynan-
ic and Delightful'," says incumb-
ent Republican Mayor Wendell
Hulcher.
Yet his Democratic opponent,
7r. Edward iPerce, describes th'
city quite differently: "The city
treasury approaches bankruptcy,
city streets are in terrible re-
pair, we are rapidly approaching
traffic saturation. Housing costs
are exorbitant, and we have no'
real program for the problems of
our elderly citizens or'our trou--
bled youth."
The sharp divergence of opin-
ion characterized the mayoral
campaign for the council seat that
various councilmen have called the

"seat which represents the entire
city" or "the seat without a ward."
Calling for a "balance between
resources and needs," Hulcher has
criticized Pierce for having "no
means for financing his campaign
promises and inferences." Claim-
ing that Hulcher's leadership on
council is'"weak," Pierce has re-
plied that he would try to be the
"leader on council" in confront-
ing new problems.
Hulcher in answer to Pierce's'
charge points to the Look Maga-
zine All-American City Award as
"partial testimony" to his own
leadership and effectiveness on
council.
Potential increases in weight
and gas tax receipts from the,
state, possible retention of a por-
tion of the federal income tax
and an evaluation of the Uni-
versity's share in paying for city

services are proposed by Hulch-
er as vital sources of new reve-
nue to maintain present city serv-
ices.
Pierce cites the advantages of
a city income tax over raising
property taxes as non-regressive
and allowing the city to tax those
who work and use city services
but do not owr property. Pierce
indicates that any implementation
of a city income tax would have
to include a corresponding de-
crease in property taxes.
Hulcher comments that the so-
lution for the problem must be
broader than just city-wide in-
come tax; he says the city is the
recipient of only 26 per cent of
the total tax levy.
On transportation, Hulcher has
said that he would prefer a pri-
vately-owned bus system with full
city cooperation. He cites the suc-

cess of such systems in other ci-
ties of Ann Arbor's size.
Pierce favors a city-owned mass
transit system but would first be-
gin a study to reveal the extent
of the problem. Such a . system.
Pierce indicates, would allow stu-
dents to live in housing on the
periphery of the city and com-
mute to and from classes.
Hulcher sees more low cost hous-
ing to be constructed with both
public and private money as a
solution to the housing problem.
He says, however, that the Uni-
versity must bear a "prime re-
sponsibility" for providing student
housing.
Pierce favors a student on the
city Housing Commission, since,
he indicates, students constitute a
large part of the city and have
especially acute housing needs.
Pierce cites a great need for low-

cost housing among the poor and
among many students.
Pierce would include students
who qualify in such housing since
"from every standpoint he should
be considered a first-class citizen."
Federal funds, Pierce indicates,
might be available for the con-
struction of such units in addi-
tion to those already allocated by
the federal government.
Hulcher proposes that student
housing off-campus should be kept
to the "lowest possible density."
He said that this consideration
should be weighed against the
"economic factor and convenience
to students."
The relationship between the
city and the University, Hulcher
indicates, is one. of "close coop-
eration." He maintains a per-
iodic re-evaluation of the Uni-

versity's "fair share" of costs of
city service is needed and said
that such an examination need-
ed to be conducted in the near
future. Pierce also indicates that
he feels that the University is
probably not paying its fair share
and that public hearings on this
matter might more closely deter-
.mine that share. The University
now pays 18 per cent of city fire
and police protection costs.
Hulcher defended the police ac-
tion in the Cinema Guild case
saying that the police were "act-
ing in accordance with their in-
terpretation of the law." Pierce
called the whole situatipn "poor-
ly handled" and said that an in-
junction would have been the
proper method.
On police-community problems,
Pierce has come out strongly,

saying that "the police should be
subject to responsible regulation
by elected representatives of the
people." He rejected the idea of
a civilian review board, however,
saying that a voluntary group,
such as the Police Community
Relations Committee, which was
in existence last summer, increas-
ed communication between the po-
lice and the community.
Hulcher agreed that the com-
mittee was "quite useful" and he
hoped that it would continue next
summer. He indicated- that the
committee enjoyed de facto coun-
cil recognition.
Both candidates agree that the
city has problems that remain in
tl~e scope of possible solutions.
Voters in this election have a cear
choice of candidates who differ
widely in their solutions to these
problems.

IFC Ends
Registration
Of Parties
Fitzpatrick Gives 'U
Approval; President's
Ratification Needed
By STEVE NISSEN
The Interfraternity Council's
executive committee voted last
night to eliminate the required
registration of all fraternity par-
ties with the office of student
affairs.I
Dan Fitzpatrick, assistant direc-
tor of student organizations, gave
formal University approval of the
motion at the meeting. The motion
is still subject to ratification by
the fraternity presidents assembly
which meets next week.
In other action the IFC execu-
tive committee passed a resolution
"that the Interfraternity Council
recommend that intoxicants be
permitted in fraternity houses for
those members 21 years of age
or older for special events upon
approval by the IFC executivet
committee."
Drinking Now Prohibited
The present regulation prohibit-
ing the presence of intoxicants
withinefraternities stems from a
ruling set down by the University
housing office. Robert Hughes, as-
sistant director of housing said the
decisionhwhether or not to.imple-
ment the IFCO recommendation,
tests with housing director John
Feldkamp and ultimately the vice-:
president for student affairs,J
Richard L. Cutler.
By eliminating registration of
p a r t ie s IFC officers asserted
that, it was serving no purpose
other than aiding university in-
vestigator Harold Swoverland.
They cited that it has been used
in the past as the "primary crite-
rion" for Swoverland's entering a
fraternity house.
Swoverland Limited
IFC passed a resolution which
would permit Swoverland to enter-
a fraterntiy housing only when
there is "reasonable and probable
cause to believe that standing so-'
cial regulations are being vio-:
lated."
Fitzpatrick agreed that, "Swo-;
verland should work for IFC, not,
the University."
IFC president Bruce Getzan ex-
pressed confidence that "the frat-
ernity presidents assembly will
ratify the resolution passed by the
IFC executive committee." He
said "it would only be consistant
with the 'progressive trend' in the
fraternity presidents assembly."

STUDENT ADVISORY BOARDS to the University vice-presi-
dents will hold open meetings this week.
The advisory board to Vice-President and Chief Financial
Officer Wilbur Pierpont will meet tonight at 7:30 p.m. in 1540,
Student Activities Bldg., for "all students who wish to discuss
the potential and future role of the board," according to chair-
man Hugh Grove, '67. Marty Zimmerman, A&D grad, will present
a proposal against the North Campus expansion. William Sturgis,
capital budget analyst in Pierpont's office, will also attend the
meeting.
Thursday at 7:30 p.m. the student advisory board to A. Geof-
frey Norman, vice-president for research, will hold a combined
open session and working meeting in 1536 SAB.

A NATIONAL STUDENT SOCIAL Work organization, found-
ed in St. Louis by 400 delegates from 47 schools, aims to establish
communication between' the schools' student bodies on social
work curricula, student voice in administrative matters and na-
tional social welfare concerns.
The organization, as yet unnamed and lacking a formal
organizational structure, is developing its local and regional struc-
ture in preparation for a meeting next November at the Univer-
sity of Wisconsin to consider social welfare issues, representation
of clients, and creating a formal student union structure. The
University's social work student delegation is the primary backer
of the student union structure. Observers see the formation of the
national organization as a sign of growing active involvement
by social work students in the activities and issues of the schools
and society.
VOICE POLITICAL PARTY voted last night to limit activi-
ties surrounding the visit to the campus by Secretary-General
of the United Nations U Thant to a picket line in front of Hill
Auditorium and the distribution of pamphlets. Thant addresses
the Honors Convocation Friday in Hill Auditorium.
Democratic mayoral candidate Edward Pierce also appeared
at the meeting, and answered questions concerning his views on
student housing, parking problems, and police on campus.
GOV. GEORGE ROMNEY said yesterday that state officials,
are working on a reduced spending budget just in case the
Legislature does not pass his proposed fiscal reform package. He
has said previously that a 15 per cent cutback in state spending
would be needed without passage of the tax reform to cover hisf
proposed $1.15 billion budget for fiscal 1967-68. Romney added,
"it would be very, very difficult if not impossible to realize a 15
per cent cutback without reduction of school aid funds."
BOARDS OF EDUCATION may consider racial balance asj
one factor in drawing up school boundaries, the Michigan CourtI
of Appeals ruled yesterday. If the boundaries are not arbitrarily
drawn, it added, students do not have a constitutional right to 3
attend a school other than the one in the district where they
live.
The court reversed a Genesee County Circuit Court decision
in the case of Truel Mason vs. the Flint Board of Education. The3
Flint board late in 1964 adopted new high school boundaries and
said publicly that racial balance was among the criteria it was
using in drawing the lines.

Statement Favors
Non-Military Efforts
To Settle Conflict
By DAVID KNOKE
The College Young Republicans
last night passed a statement1
clarifying their position on the
Vietnam war and elected their
slate of officers for the year.
The seven-point statement crit-
icized the Johnson Administration
for "repeated misuse of the pros-
pect of negotiation to create a
false sense of 'rising expecta-
tions.' "
Doubting that negotiations be-
tween the United States and the
Norh Vienamese, "were it feasible,
would terminate the war," the
position paper calls for "unflag-
ging search for an effective peace
by non-military means," while
supporting a policy of "doing no
more and no less than what is
necessary militarily in Vietnam
to bring about a viable peace."
"We feel this statement reflects
the position of the Republicans on
campus and in the nation," said
Mike Renner, '69, newly elected
chairman of the Young Repub-
licans.
"We plan to send the position
paper to such nationally-known
Republican leaders as Gov. Rom-
ney, Sen. Robert Griffin and Sen.
Edward Brooke of Massachusetts
who recently said almost the same
things as this paper."
"The paper represents our clear-.
ly stated position on the Vietnam
war," said Renner, in reference to
a story which appeared several
weeks ago in The Daily which
"was written without knowledge
of the complete context of the
resolution as it now appears."

MIKE RENNER, '69E, left, was elected chairman of the College Young Re
Bob Willmarth, '69, was elected vice-chairman. Also elected were Britt Procto
executive board members Jan Holland, '70N, Connie Tegge, '67, Bert Heid
Nehra, '70.
