The major disagreement con-

Most committee members agree
student opinion should be evalu-

ment for funding the facilities is
implemented by the Regents.
However, several committee
members, including the chairman,
Athletic Director Don Canham,
believe it is not a function of the
committee to recommend proce-
dures to determine funding.
Canham said yesterday, "We are
being asked to recommend a policy
on procedures to be followed by
the Financial Office and the Re-j
gents. This is not the function of
this committee."
Education Prof. Loren /Barritt
disagreed with Canham. He intro-
duced an amendment to the com-
mitee's proposal stating no student
fee increase should be assessed
until a "program for involving the
student body in the decision is
developed in conjunction with
Student Government Council."
However, no vote was taken on
the motion.

have asked that a referendum be

TOM BRADLEY is interviewed by newsmen after he voted in last night's election. Polls had
predicted he would defeat incumbent Mayor Sam Yorty's bid for a third term.

The Tenants Union has
filed a one million dollar
countersuit against the seven
landlords who are currently
seeking a court injunction
against the rent strike on
grounds that it is a conspiracy
to violate leases.
The Tenants Union counter-
suit charges that the landlords
have violated' leases and anti-
trust statutes. The landlords are
charged with "banding together
In an unreasonable restraint of
trade," breaching leases through
"inadequate facilities," and "fraud-
ulent misrepresentation" of the
condition of their properties.
Rent strike legal spokesman
Dale Berry explained yesterday
that the countersuit will be tried
with the landlords' suit in Cir-
cuit Court under Judge William
Ager. That 'case is scheduled to
resume June 6 when Ager is to
rule on motions from both sides
for immediate settlement of the
Berry said the landlords' attor-
ney must file a reply to the coun-
tersuit before any action can be
taken. However, he added that he
expected the attorney, William
I Barense, to"file motions for dis-
missal of the countersuit.
In addition, Barense has asked
State Atty. Gen. Frank Kelley to
intervene in the conspiracy case.
In a letter to Kelley, Barense cited
a state law (Act 286 of 1968)
which provides that any rent
withheld be paid to the court. a
Barense asked that Kelley in-
tervene under his power to super-t
vise trust funds "not only on the1
landlords behalf, but also on be-
half of all persons who have made

Daily News Analysis
Sometime this summer, probably in July,
the Regents will be polled by phone and
the official list of tuition-levels for 1969-70
will be announced.
But until that day - the same day that
the Legislature approves the 1969-70 high-
er education appropriations bill - no one
can be quite sure what those tuition levels
will be.
Meanwhile, administrators 1 i k e Vice
President f o r Academic Affairs Allan
Smith keep looking for a few more dol-
lars to cut out of the budget in order to
minimize the tuition increase. And stu-

the difference between what they say is
the smallest state appropriation they can
"live with" and the actual size of the ap-
This year, administrators say they would
try not to increase tuition if the level of
the final state appropriation is equal to
the governor's $67.3 million recommenda-
There is a difference of $2 million be-
tween the governor's figure and the $65.3
million recommendation of the State Sen-
ate Appropriations Committee in the high-
er education appropriations bill reported to
the Senate floor Monday.

A group of citizens presented to
Mayor Robert Harris last night
10, "positive" suggestions to pre-
vent possible police harassment.
The Ann Arbor Citizens Con-
cerned About Police-Community
Relations called for a civilian re-
view in the wake of a chain of
incidents that have heightened
tensions in the city.
"We want to move toward the
alleviation of what we consider a
poor situation," said Prof. Robert
Beyer. "These are positive sugges-
tions: we're nolt trving to tear

board but has failed to find a suc-
cessful model in the country.
The second suggestion the citi-
zens committee made to Harris
was to hire attorneys to be present
at the police station at all times to
"ensure the civil rights of all those
detained or arrested" Harris said
this would require hiring four
laywers in addition to the four al-
ready hired, with the approximate
cost of $48,000.
Harris also argued that the most
frequent complaint is not con-
cerned with the ignorance of civil
rights but with personality con-
flicts that lead to possible escala-

Arbor landlords.
The resolution calls the suit
"reminiscent of the union-busting
action of industries in the twen-
ties and thirties."
The local party supported the
rent strike in the 1969 election
platform. Their resolution assert-
ed that "the collective bargaining
between residential tenants and
their landlords is not onlydesir-
able and fair but that it is a right
which should have the protection
of state, and if legally possible,
local law."
The Tenants' Union resolution
is an amendment to a resolution
in the Democratic Party newslet-
ter, which is always sent out ten
days before the public meeting.
Under party bylaws, all reso-
lutions presented from the floor
must first appear in the newsletter
or must be amendments or sub-
stitutions to resolutions already in
the newsletter.
