Top Vce-Presiden t

The 300 University students with leases at a controversial new
apartment building will be able to move in on time for the fall semes-
ter, according to the owner, Robert Weaver, despite previous reports
that the building would not be finished on time.
Although there have been setbacks from steel workers strikes and
bad weather, all 18 floors will be ready for full occupancy by Aug. 21,
Weaver said.
Many architectural experts at the University have disputed Weav-
er's claim in the past that the building will be completed on schedule,


To Look into
Climaxing a study of intensive
land usage in Ann Arbor, the City
Council passed a formal resolu-
tion to receive the final report of
the Joint Committee on Central
Business District High-Rise De-
Svelopments and Parking.
The vote came' at the Council's
reg~Uar Monday session, July 19.
It made legal action suggested in
the study possible.
In an attempt to forewarn and
educate land owners and develop-
ers of possible legislation resulting
Sfrom the report, the Council also
passed an ordinance forbidding
city officials to issue building per.
mits for any structures over 18
sto3'ies, except with approval of
ouni .Further Study
The ordinance, entailing the
committee's suggested ceiling for
high rises, was passed with the
understandling that further study
of the report would yield more
Scomprehensive legislation.
To this end, a special meeting of
Council was slated for August 2,
sider th e first daft of odinances
prepared by the City Attorney. As-
pects of the report not covered in
the then current ordinance would
be included.

btWeaver explained that they
are not familiar with his "critical
path" method o'f construction'.
Weaver explained that this
method uses as much prefabricat-
ed construction material as possi-
ble and the progress of the work
is worked out on computers.
Hoe fadedthat the method is
monly used in large cities, where
the* construction of high buildings
is commonplace.
The owner of the largest apart-
ment house in Ann Arbor, with a
capacity of 800 occupants, com-
mented that many people are not
familiar with the method in this
city because most of the build-
ing projects are toQ small to jus&-
tify its use. -
When it appeared several
months ago that the apartment
house, located at the corner of
South University and Forest Ave.,
might not be completed on time',
Weaver indicated that he would
be willing to have his men work
24 hours a day.
Striking local steel workers in
early May held construction up
several weeks. Federal mediators
were called in to handle the dis-

Concern has been expressed by
the University as to where the stu-
dents will live if the construction

On Berkteley
Has Great Support;-
'U' Takes No Action
The U~niversity's upper admin-
istration was jolted this summer
as one of its most popular and
active vice-presidents received a
bid to head the University of Cali-
fornia's troubled Berkeley campus.
Vice-President for Academic Af-
fairs Roger W. Heyns, already
acknowledged to be a key Uni-
versity leader and often mention-
ed as its next President, was of-
fered the Berkeley chancellorship
Newsd-Jf the offer touched off
an unusually vigorous movement
among faculty members, among
whom Heyns is highly respected,
to keep him at the University. The
administration and Regents, how-
ever, made no counter-offers aim-
ed at retaining him.
Up to Heyns
This left the choice up to
Heyns: to take the top position
on the Berkeley campus, or to
stick with what is generally con-
sidered the second slot at the Uni-
versity. As of July 23, when this
edition went to press, Heyns has
not announced his decision-and
reportedly is still undecided-
News of the California offer
first came from two conservative
members of the California board
of regents, which governs all nine
of the campuses which make up I
the University of California-.
That university has been in a
state of crisis since last winter,
when student demonstrations vir-
tually brought the Berkeley cam-
pus to a standstill.
The Berkeley chancellor at the
time, Edward Strong, was blamed
for incompetent handling of the
events and was replaced by Mar-
tin Meyerson, then dean of Berke-
ley's college of environmental de-
Meyerson, however, was unac-
ceptable to the conservative mem-
bers of the board of regents, and
never got beyond the title of "act-
ing chancellor." Heyns is report-
edly the first candidate t0 be ac-
ceptable to all iactions in the

The Office of Student Affairs
wvas reorganized this summer to
facilitate a deeper expertise and
to make the non-academic as-
pects of education a greater in-
fluence at the executive admini-
strative level according to Vice
President for Student Affairs
Richard Cutler.
Basically, the restructuring will
eliminate the role of the vice
president* for student affairs as a
dean of students, he said, trans-

of a student affairs office.
Bogged Down
Cutler said that a vice presi
dent performing a dean of stu
dents role gets bogged down b;
the details and can not ade
quately fulfill his role as an ex
ecutive officer of the University
"The ultimate purpose of th
reorganization is to allow the vic
president more opportunity t
represent the student interest t
the Regents and the President,
Cutler remarked.
Cutler said that the realiza
tion that the non-academic sid
of a student's college experiene
is. as important as the academi
side is the philosophy underlyin
the restructuring.
He remarked that by givin

Reed Report
Cutler commented that the re
structuring was in 1ine with th
recommendations of the Reed re
port which advocated the over
hauling of the OSA during th
period when it was headed b
James A. Lewis.
Under the old system, Cutle
said the vice president for stu
dent affairs functioned as
"dean of students" even thoug
he did not have this as an off i
cial title.
He termed sum & structure a:
"anachronistic thcon cept'" an
dents" function performed by stu
dent affairs vice-presidents in th
past could better be performed b


In contrast to the new role Cut-
ler hopes for his office, a "dean
of students" type of GSA relies
more on the authority of other
executive offices, he said.
"The question is whether you
want one or two vice presidents
with some other deans, or sev-
eral vice presidents of equal
status,' he remarked.
Executive Leaders
Cutler said the restructuring
would transform the vice presi-
dent for student affairs from a
"line office officer" to a "true
executive leader."
For example, Cutler said that
he would be participating more
actively in such matters as the
location, financing, construction
and operation of residence halls
and other student facilities.,
While recognizing the need to
retain fiscal integrity, there is al-
so the need for someone to rep-
resent the student interest on
these projects Cutler explained.
In order to implement his plan
to have specialists in each field
taking over the duties of the
presdent Cutler has reorganized
his office into nine major sub-

Fund Lack, Costs
Bamed or Rises
Ferency Blasts Regents for Action;
Romney Defends 'U' as Aiitoniomous
This summer the Regents raised both residence hail fees
and tuition rates in a move that will add $118-$150 to the
average freshman's bill for his first year at the University.
A $50 per year residence hall fee hike was unanimously
passed by the Regents in June, making this the second
straight year that residence hall charges have been increased
during the summer, This action was quickly followed by ap-
proval of the tuition hike at a special Regents meeting July 9.
The vote on tuition was 5-2, with Regents Carl Brablec and
Irene Murphy dissenting. Regent Allan Sorenson was absent
from the meeting.
Several University administrators had dropped unofficial

hints about the possibility of
fee increases which were pub-
lished in the Daily as early as
March; however, no formal
announcemnents had b e e n
miade before the two Regents
Executive Vice-President Marvin
Niehuss said that an additional
$250,000 has been set aside for
student financial aid to enable
needy students to pay the higher
Rationale for Hikes
Presenting a rationale for the
rate hike, administrators cited
rising costs in the residence hail
system as the reason for the $50
increase. According to John Feld-
kamp, assistant to the vice-presi-
dent for student affairs, approx-
imately 80 per cent of the Increase
is needed to finance pay raises for
both counseling and non-academic
The other 20 per cent, he said,
will be divided between wage
hikes for student employees and
the increasing costs of foods and
scĀ± vices.
The tuition increase was at-
tributed to a shortage of funds
from the Legislature. President
Harlan Hatcher pointed out that
the University was allotted only
$51.2 million of a $55.7 million
196,5-66 appropriations request. He
said this shortage, in combination
with the backlog of needs which
have accumulated since 1957-
when Michigan's financial crisis
resulted in the first of several con-
secutive low appropriations-made
eaising tuition a necessity.
Others disagreed, however. On
