Rights Commission
Aids Wagner, Tenants
In Dispute Settlement
A settlement was reached yes-
terday between Carol Sue OakesI
and Sharon Johnstone and land-
lord Martin Wagner over the ques-
tion of Wagner's eviction of the
two University students from a;
home owned by him.
The agreement, reached in a
closed meeting of the Housing
Committee of the Ann Arbor Hu-
man Relations Commission, pro-
vides for a written lease which will
extend to the end of the academic
year. David Crowley, chairman of
the Human Relations Commission,
said he was not at liberty to dis-
close the terms of the agreement.
The question of the students'
occupancy of the residence start-
ed in September, when neighbors
complained to Wagner that Misses
Oakes and Johnstone were enter-
taining Negroes in the house. This,;
coupled with a misunderstanding
as to the terms of tenancy (there
was no written lease), led to a
series of incidents which culmi-
nated in the eviction notice.
Wagner's rejection of a subse-
quent negotiated settlement led
Action for Human Rights, an ad
hoc committee formed in the
women's behalf, to picket Wagner's
home Oct. 23-25, charging racial
discrimination. The W a g n e r s
countered the picketers' charges
by maintaining that the issue wasj
not one of race but of agreeable'
terms of occupancy.
The demonstration was halted:
on Oct. 25 by an injunction served'
by Judge James R. Breakey of the
Washtenaw County Circuit Court..
Damage charges pressed by the
Wagners at that time will be con-
sidered in a hearing on Nov. 9
unless dropped in the face of the
Miss Oakes saidlast night, "I'm
very pleased by the outcome of the,
situation.sThe agreement which
was reached today was the same
agreement which was rejected by
Wagner, giving rise to the neces-
sity of the picket."
Arthur Carpenter, Wagner's at-
torney, .said, "I think that the.
matter has been amicably settled
to the satisfaction of everyone."

MEMBERS OF THE TUSKEGEE Institute committee of the
University-Tuskegee exchange program will visit the University
today and tomorrow.
The committee is responsible for implementing the exchange
program between the two schools. Its members will meet with
faculty and administrators in the literary college, College ofI
Engineering, School of Education, School of Social Work, Audio
Visual Education Center and the Television Center.
Initiated in 1963 by President Luther Foster of Tuskegee and
President Harlan Hatcher, the exchange program aims to pro-
vide students and faculty with an opportunity to explore the3
differing cultural patterns of the respective institutions through
a semester's residence.
University students have until Nov. 15 to return application
blanks for the spring 1967 semester at Tuskegee. The exchange
is open to all University students. Information on the program
may be obtained from John Chavis or Mrs. Jean Potter in the
Tuskegee Exchange Office, 1223 Angell Hall.
Visitors from Tuskegee are Dean John Welch, Prof. Donna
L. Brook, and Drs. Howard S. Greenlee, Edward L. Jackson and
William P. Smith.
STATE FARM MUTUAL Automobile Insurance Co. is widen-
ing its "good student" discount from 20 to 25 per cent. State
Farm explains that students who get high grades spend more time
behind books and less time behind the wheel, reducing the prob-
ability of accidents.
To qualify for the discount, approved by 34 states, the stu-
dent must have achieved the grade average required by his school
for academic merit the semester preceding his application. The
discount applies to males under 25 in high school or college, who

active in high school extra-curricular activities, dated more fre-
quently, and wanted to be remembered as leaders, while inde-
pendents would rather be remembered as outstanding students.
Among the boys few such discrepencies existed in their back-
grounds. Most fraternity men, however, were chiefly concerned
over financial situations of future jobs, and planned to do more
graduate study and careers associated with business or engi-
neering. Independents were more concerned with educational
fields and the performing arts.

Four Credit Hours
The faculty assembly of the
literary college will discuss a pro-
posal that all courses carry four
hours of credit at their meeting on
The proposal was initiated by
Prof. Albert Feuerwerker of the
history department at a previous
meeting. It was not embodied in
any formal proposal but was given
to the college's curriculum com-
mittee for study. The unit will pre-
sent its suggestions along with
the proposal at Monday's meeting.
Feuerwerker said that he would
like to see upperclassmen taking
four courses a semester as fresh-
men and sophomores normally do
now. His proposal would require
128 credit hours for graduation
rather than the. present 120 credit
hour requirement.
There have been many other
suggestions along this line, accord-
ing to a member of the curriculum
committee. He said that the com-
mittee will most likely use Feuer-
weker's proposal as a springboard
for more specific guidelines.
The proposal was presented to
the executive committee of the
literary college at its meeting last
night but Willam HFaber, dean of
the college, said the meeting ad-
journed before the matter was
Haber added that the college "is
constantly exploring ways and
means to make the best use of the
student's energy." Feuerweker's
proposal "merits careful consider-
ation" although there "are some
practical problems with it," he
James Robertson, assistant dean
of the college, said he would like
to see "some re-thinking" in this
area because there is general con-
cern with students at the junior-
senior level taking five to six
courses in order to meet the credit
hour requirement for graduation.
There are some faculty who are
interested in abandoning the no-
tion of credits altogether, accord-
ing to one faculty member. This
was done at Harvard where a
course is defined as one year's
work in a subject while a semes-
ter's work constitutes one-half of
a course.
