Low-cost student
housing planned
A dispute has arisen over funding of the project, but no one
will dispute the need for low-cost student housing-a need which has
been so effectively dramatized by the rent strike.
Both the Office of University Housing and its student advisory
committee have agreed on plans to build low-cost apartments for 1000
students by 1972. Projected rent in the two 200-unit housing complexes
in now estimated at as little as $40 a man for a two-man apartment.
Edward Salowitz, assistant director of University housing, says
construction is tentatively planned to start in fall 1970. But neither
the exact cost of the project nor a method of funding has been
definitely determined although price estimates are currently in the
area of $10 million.
Chuck Snyder, Grad, a member of the Student Advisory Com-
mittee on Housing, says the new units would mostly house single
students, although married, students without children would also be
accommodated in about 25 per cent of the units. No exact percentage
has been set yet.
The project is still in the planning stages as the dispute over
funding emerges. No site has been selected yet and no construction
firm has been contracted.
The proposed units would provide a combination of two-, three-
and four-man apartments. Most of the apartments would be for two
students with some larger units.

-Asociated Press
Detroit's Mayor, Jerome P. Cavanagh, announces yesterday he
will not seek a third four-year term. The mayor insisted this
decision is not a result of recent liberal setbacks in Los Angeles,
New York and Minneapolis. The man who seems most likely to
gain as a result of Cavanagh's decision is Wayne County Auditor
Richard Austin, the first prominent black to seek the Detroit
mayoralty and the most liberal of the four candidates currently
in the race.

A different kind of sit-in

Both the University housing office and SACH, its advisory com-
mittee, agree that the new units should be funded in part through Eight Detroit women sit-in in Episcopal Bishop Emrich's office to protest his refusal to meet offi-

from the residence- hall reserves-profits from dorm operations and
married student housing. GOVERNMENT REPORT:
The Regents have already passed an average $40 dorm fee hike,
which will be used to maintain the reserves and would help pay for -

the new units if Feldkamp's plan is followed.
Feldkamp had also hoped to pass a $5 rent increase for married
students which would be used for the planned construction. But SACH
disagreed and voted against Feldkamp.
Monday the student affairs policy board voted to back SACH
and censured Feldkamp for going against the recommendations of
his advisory board and proposing the fee increase in a letter to

barricades, vandalism and person-
al assault do not constitute a

California officials are urged
also to restore student and public
confidence in the educational pro-
cess by closely reviewing policies
on admissions, curriculum, stu-
dent discipline and student par-

The researchers said they found,
after interviews with Republican
and Democratic state legislators,
that violence at San Francisco
State and other public schools
likely will result in legislation
placing criminal penalties on cam-
pus conduct deemed unacceptable.
