Underclass Women Get Extensions

Changes in women's hours, including the abolition of hours for
junior women on weekends and extension of hours for sophomores
and freshmen, were announced yesterday by Vice-President for
Student Affairs James A. Lewis. The rules will go into effect next fall.
Changes were also made in other regulations, including the
procedure of signing in and out by the women and the regulation
"rohibiting freshman women from
visiting apartments.

'' To Exert
Mor tgagees
Responding to a request from
the Congress of Racial Equality,'
the University will "exert pres-
sure" on the managers of the
Parkhurst and Arbordale apart-
ments to end their alleged dis-
crimination, University Vice-Pres-
ident for Student Affairs James
A. Lewis confirmed yesterday.
University Vice-President for
Business and Finance Wilbur K.
Pierpont confirmed that the Uni-
versity holds a $180,000 mortgage
on the apartments.
Lewis said CORE representa-
tives first, approached him con-
cerning the apartments "about 10
days ago." University authorities
were aware of the mortgage at
that time, but that no action was
taken until CORE's contact, Lewis
Initial Communication
"The University takes the posi-
tion of working against discrimin-
ation throughout Ann Arbor,"
Lewis said. "This will be the sub-
stance of our initial communica-
Pierpont said the University
first acquired the mortgage in
1956. At that time, the University
was coffering low interest rates in
an effort to encourage low-cost
apartment building in Ann Arbor.
The 15 year mortgage is now
"substantially. less than the orig-
inal $180,000," Pierpont explained.
Changed Hands
Pierpont said ownership of the
apartments changed hands in
1960. The University was not con-
nected with this change. It is the
present owner's management that
is charged with discrimination
under the Fair Housing Ordi-
The present case arose when
CORE representatives filed a com-
plaint with Ann Arbor's Human
Relations Commission charging
the manager of the Parkhurst-
Arbordale apartments with refus-
ing to rent a vacant apartmert
to a Negro.
After hearings before HRC and
attempted negotiations between
CORE and Cutler-Hubble, the De-
troit owners of the apartments,
HRC concluded that a violation
of the Fair Housing Ordinance
had occurred.
None of the people involved in
the case cared to hazard a pre-
diction as to its outcome.


'U'Official Study Recruiting
University officials are looking at the Michigan State Univers
student-recruitment programs-and they're worried.
The current extensive publicity and student recruitment campa:
undertaken by Michigan State University has caused uneasin
among University officials according to a recent report on the N
tional Merit Scholarship program at MSU.
The report, issued by the University Office of Institutional R
lations, explains how MSU was able to enroll 198 "so-called" N
tional Merit Scholars this year.- -

One of the 12 students sus-
pended April 4, by Carleton Col
lege for publishing a mimeograph-
ed paper termed "vulgar" yester-
day petitioned for readmittance.

The students were told when
they were suspended that they
would be considered for readmit-
tance only upon petitioning the
dean of men.
Students and faculty have been
"genuinely disturbed"' by the ad-
ministrative action. Concern was
centered around the "suddenness
and severity" of the punishment,
according to Dean Richard C.
Gilman. It took the form of stu-
dent protest meetings, faculty
conferences, and a protest petition
signed by 121 students.
The allegedly vulgar publication
was "Field and Scream," an issue
called an unsanctioned student
publication. Last Friday the issue
called "Truth Limited" hit the
Carleton campus. Saturday, the
three deans of the college confer-
red with Carleton President John

tered around two points. First, the
Carleton Publications Board was
not consulted by the administra-
tion on the suspension of the stu-
Secondly, many students and
faculty felt that suspension was
too severe a punishment and that
banning the publication would
have been sufficient. As to the is-
sue of free speech, Dean Gilman
asserted that "censorship 'is be-
side the point."

Calls for Improvement
Prof. Adon A. Gordus of the
chemistry department has called
for an improvement in University
publicity procedures. He is head
of an Honors Council subcommit-
tee that has compared the Uni-
versity's publicity and scholarship
program with those of other in-
While no University group would
recommend an all out student re-
cruitment campaign, more direct

the University and graduating high
school students, Prof. Gordus said
Current publicity procedures at
the University, consist of close co-
operation with high school counse-
lors and sending staff counselors
to attend high school nights, ac-
cording tp Byron L. Groesbeck, as-
sistant director of admissions.
Better Literature
Prof. Gordus observed that more
extensive and interesting litera-
ture ought to be distributed. Groes-
beck said that with an inprease of

counselors added to the Admis-
sions staff.
But admissions officials agree
on one point-the University must
watch MSU.
MSU has gone into the high
schools of resident National Merit
Scholar semifinalists and actively
recruited them to attend Michigan
State. In addition, MSU has of-
fered a series of scholarships
through the Merit Scholarship
Corporation to semifinalists.
Not Real Ones
Recipients of these scholarships
are classified as National Merit
Scholars only in so much as they
have received an MSU scholar-
ship through the corporation.
The University admitted 29 Na-
tional Merit scholars this year.
No scholarships are given out to
students enrolling in the Universi-
ty through the Merit Scholarship
Prof. Gordus said MSU also
sends newsletters to prospective
students chosen from lists of high
school contest and award winners
as well as to students that have
been accepted to the university..

Admission officers explained
yesterday that this policy-begun
this year-has already decreased
the out-of-state percentage from
29 to'25 per cent.
600 more in-state students will
be admitted next fall, and the to-
tal freshman class will rise to

representation will remain at ap-
proximately 1000.

of 'registration and records, said
yesterday that "I expect out-state
student numbers will remain the
same next year, but that the' num-
ber of in-state students will in-
crease markedly."
Of last fall's University total
27,388 enrollment, 29 per cent of,
the school were from out-state
areas. Undergraduate and gradu-
ate totals remained close to this
percentage. Out-state students
numbered 27 per cent of the un-
dergraduate and 28 per cent of
the graduate school enrollments.
Commenting on the situation,
Rep. William Romano (D-War-
ren)-who has regularly opposed
increased out-of-state enrollments
-mentioned "a drive by elitist
state institutions to admit more
out-of-state students."
Roiano said that he did admit

similation of out-of-state students
"to create a cosmopolitan atmos-
phere." However, "I, as well as
President Harlan Hatcher have
an obligation to see that first the

cation," he said.

same as the bill reported out
of Sen. Frank D. Beadle (R-
St. Clair), chairman of the
Senate Appropriations Com-
mittee Tuesday. It is $75,000
higher than Romney's request.
Slightly Higher
Michigan State's appropriation,
as levied by the Senate, is $75,000
higher than Romney's $39.5 mil-
lion recommendation. None of the
operating budget levies requested
for the other colleges and univer-
sities were changed.
This increase to Michigan
State's budget represents the
change in the total' appropriation
for operating expenditures for
higher education.
Sen. Stanley G. Thayer (R-Ann
Arbor) indicated that the addi-
tion to Michigan State's budget
outlay resulted from a restructur-
ing of their budget request by the
-Senate Appropriations Committee.
The restructuring divided State's
budget request into three non-
transferable funds according to a
formula based on previous Michi-
gan State budgets.
4htent Mis-Fired
"The intent of the restructur-
ing was to keep the total outlay
to Michigan State the same," 'Sen.
Thayer noted. "I think it was
an error in the committee that it
came out more," he added.
"In the Senate I pointed out the
discrepancy to Sen. Frank Beadle
but no action was taken," Thay-
er said.
"It's difficult to predict, but I
don't expect the House to' make
any major changes," he added.
Predicting House action on the
higher education capital outlay
and operating budget bills, Rep.
Gilbert E. Bursley (T-Ann Arbor)
noted that "my impression is that
there is generally favorable fre-
eeption of the bills."
On the issue of branch expan-
sion, Bursley indicated that House
members favor waiting for Gov.

bers have also expressed interest

LONDON (IP)-The Labor party, hungry for power after 13 years
in the shade, racked up an 'impressive victory in Britain's municipal

But in history it has seldom been seen that the problems, facing
individual people are the problems facing society, Stanley Aronowitz,
of the National Committee for Full Employment said last night.
He cited the 1930's as one example of a period when people did
see this connection: the economic depression forced people to turn
to each other-not on a "love" or moral basis, but because there was
a common need for changes iri the society.
May Require Change
Today, the labor movement-centering on certain economic and
job demands-"depends on cutting the arms budget or taxing the
rich," Aronowitz said. And this, in turn, "may require a change in the
political structure."
Prof. Sumner Rosen of Simmons College agreed on this point. To
