Robert Bodkin, former president
of the Student Housing Associa-
tion, claimed that Ann Arbor is a
"seller's market" in housing. He
said that "there is no deprecia-
tion Profits are one-fourth to
one-half higher than the national
average." He said capital gain is
"at least 17.2 per cent and up to
44 per cent. This is very high"
Patrick J. Pulte, testifying as an
independent landlord, put the
capital gain figure at ten to 11
per cent. He pointed to high build-
ing costs and to destructiveness of
student tenants as being prime
factors in keeping the profit mar-
gin down.
"A return of this size is far
from unreasonable; it is in the
area of the national average."
Pulte also testified that "today's
students don't want to work. I
have trouble getting them to do
things like clean hallways and
shovel walks for $2 an hour."
"That tells us something about
the students," Faxon said.
Pulte concluded by saying, The
market' is not a sellers' market.
'here are a reasonable number

"And if profits are 3o great,
why don't Detroit builders comne
here?" he asked.
Torn Van Lente, testifying after
Pulte, maid that "they are coming
here." Van Lente said he posed
last year as a "real estate majo
devoted to private enterprise and
to keening thenUniversityhout f
housing" to find out what re-
0* turns were being made by Ann
Arbor realtors
"They told me they were mak-

he said.

Philip C. Jessup expressed this
opinion in his speech at the Uni-

told that our density was too high
and inconsistent with that already
on North Campus. When asked to
set down some concrete guidelines
on such matters as density, park-
ing and recreation areas the com-
mittee would not do so."
Davis claimed "we cannot pro-
ceed any farther on this project
without a written sales agreement
from the University specifying all
the requirements for the sale so
that our architect and lawyer can
work on further plans for the
project and city zoning.
"We cannot afford to provide
the University with information

not afford to do estimates and
then wait around until they are

Montgomery commented "I as-
sume these students are paying
their tuition, and can reasonably
expect administrative and techni-
cal help from the University's vast

resources. Maybe you could short-
en the coffee breaks."
Feldkamp replied that ICC had
not supplied his office with suf-

North Campus housing involved
substantiallyfewer residents per

for. "I am willing at any time
to sit down with these people and

Graduate Student Council mem-
ber Roger Leed, a law student, then
testified that students have "vir-
tually no rights" in dealing with
landlords. A member of the Ann
Arbor legal aid society, Leed said
students must sue "pillar-of-the-
community" landlords in courts
obviously friendly to the latter to
get a deposit of even $50 back. He
also said "The student does not
know his rights and the Univer-
sity makes no effort to inform

New Congressional Plans
Assume NO' Tax Increase

A rapidly increasing demand for
lawyers is giving law school grad-
uates a greater choice of posi-
tions, higher starting salaries and
a better chance for eraly profes-
sional advancement than ever be-
Growing competition among law
firms, government agencies and
corporations for law school grad-
uates can be seen in the recent
activity of the University Law
School placement office.
In the past three months, 236
employers-an all-time school high
conducted 3,607 interviews at
the school. Employers from 19
states interviewed 404 students,
196 of whom were seniors.
"One trend," said Kenneth L:
Yourd, assistant to the dean, "is
for firms to hire second year stu-
dents for summer jobs with the
hope of interesting them in join-
ing the organization after gradua-
High Starting Salaries
Starting salaries for law school
graduates can go as high as
$10,000, reports Miss Elizabeth A.
Bliss, supervisor of the placerient
"Today the recent graduate can
move upward in his firm or organ-
ization as soon as he shows that
he can handle the responsibility,"
said Yourd.
Forty-five employers came to
the campus recently from New
York, along with 40 from Mich-
igan, 31 from California, 28 from
Illinois, 25 from Ohio, 20 from
Washington, D.C., 10 from Penn-
sylvania and 37 from as far as
Florida and Oregon.
"Actually," explained Yourd,
"the in-state placement is much
higher than -these statistics indi-
cate. Many students do not go
through interviewing because they
already have positions waiting for
them in their Michigan com-
On-Campus Interviews
Potential employers usually send
one or two representatives to the
Ann Arbor campus for up to three
days to conduct as many as 13
interviews a day. The Law School
provides 14 individual interview
rooms and maintains a clerical
staff to keep appointments sched-

conducting on-campus interviews.
Relocation Services
Yourd also reports that thej
placement office is dealing in-
creasingly with graduates seeking
to relocate after having been in
Large cities supplied the great-t
est number of interviewers. There1
have been 36 from New York City,
28 from Chicago, 23 from Detroit,i
20 from Washington, D.C., 18i
from Los Angeles, 14 from Cleve-
land, and 10 from San Francisco.t
On the other hand, interviewers1
have also been on campus from
Armonk, N.Y. and LeSueur, Minn.,
Of the 17 Michigan interviewers
not from Detroit, seven came from
Grand Rapids, two each from1
Kalamazoo, Lansing and Muske-
gon, and one each from Dearborn.,
Holland, Midland and Sturgis.
Government Opportunities
Increased interest from govern-
mental agencies in law school
graduates is also evident. Among
the employers from Washington
this year have been the Federal
Power Commission; the Depart-
ment of State's Office of the Legal
Advisor, the National Labor Rela-
tions Board, the Navy, the Na-
tional Aeronautics and Space Ad-
ministration, the Civil Aeronau-
tics Board, the Atomic Energy
Commission, the InterstateCor-
merce Commission, the Internal
Revenue Service, the Federal
Communications Commission, the
Office of Economic Opportunity,
the Small Business Administration
and the Department of Justice.
"Although it is still too early
to determine results of current in-
terviewing, which will continue at
a reduced rate for several months,
a look at last year's law graduates
gives some basis for prediction,"
said Yourd.
Gravitate to Cities
Of the 1966 graduates registered
with the placement office, 30 per
cent remained in Michigan and 9
per cent settled in the contiguous

None of these graduates went
into individual practice. Twenty-
four per cent joined small firms
(fewer than 10 lawyers); 37 per
cent went to large firms; 17 per
cent joined state, local and fed-
eral government (including judi-
cial clerkships); 1 per cent went
to corporate legal departments; 8
per cent decided to teach or go on
for further study; 3 per cent went
into military service with commis-
sions; and 10 per cent went into
occupations other than law prac-
Of the 282 graduates in 1966
who registered with the placement
office, 60 per cent reported em-
ployment resulting from contact
through the office, said Miss Bliss.

WASHINGTON (MP)-Leaders are
laying out schedules of the new
Congress on the assumption that
President Johnson will not now
ask for a tax increase, it was
learned yesterday.
Johnsonrcould surprise them by
calling for a bigger tax bite to
hold down the Vietnam-swollen
deficit. In such a case, priorities
would be reshuffled quickly.
If such a call is made, presu-
mably it would come in Johnson's
State-of-the-Union message ex-
pected about Jan. 17. Congress
convenes Jan. 10.
But, adding the general econo-
mic indications to the lack of in-
formal nudges from the White
House to gear up for quick action
on such leglislation, leaders are as-
suming the tax-increase proposal
is on the shelf.
It would have to be given urgent
treatment to have any hope of
affecting the fiscal balance for
the government's present book-
keeping year, which ends June 30.
Even to become effective for the
beginning of the next fiscal -year,
tax-increase legislation would
have to have priority over prac-
tically all other major legislation.
Instead, the tentative schedule
for handling fiscal bills runs like
First, and urgently, an increase
in the $330-billion limit, on the
national debt. The aim is to have
a bill lifting the ceiling, probably
by something less than $8 billion,
orld Law
made against a background of
"policy papers, intelligence reports,
and invoked precedents," he con-
tinued. "It is a curiosity of current
usage that intelligence' is now
commonly associated with some-
thing secret, C.I.A., and indeed one
is sometimes hard put to find in
government the operation of in-
telligence in its normal meaning."
Acceptance of Foreign Policy

on Johnson's desk before mid-
The Treasury already has had
some uncomfortably close days
when receipts were down and ex-
penditures up. A time of real
stringency lies ahead before April
income tax collections roll in.
The $330-billion limit set last
year was based on an estimated
deficit of $1.8 billion. Some ad-
ministration sources now are talk-
ing of a possible $10-billion deficit,
although that figure is somewhat
suspect on Capitol Hill. Some
legislators say the executive
branch lens toward gloom in its
fiscal forecasts so as to look
better later.
After dealing with the debt situ-
ation, the House Ways and Means
Committee, where all tax legisla-
tion originates, intends to take
up next Johnson's proposal for a
sweeping increase in Social Secur-
ity benefits.
