Lewis Sees 3-4 Per Cent Residence Hall Inc



Board of Governors
To Hold Conference
Operational Costs, Salary Hikes,
Necessitate Room, Board Raises
There will be a minimum three to four per cent increase in
residence hall fees next year, Vice-President for Student Affairs
James A. Lewis predicted yesterday.
The Board of Governors of Residence Halls will discuss the
raise in rates at a special meeting this week, probably on Thursday,
Lewis said. Notices will be sent to all students as soon as the new
rates are set.
The increase-which should be limited to $30 per student- is
necessitated by added costs of operations, particularly in the ex-

Expressed Concern
Geary's letter expressed the
council's concern "for the right of
the residents not to be, vulnerable
to solicitation in their rooms
It is the opinion of the council
that granting your request would
be setting a dangerous precedent
that would lead the way for soli-
citation by all student organiza-
Geary also reported that the
council had denied the request,
since the members felt that Daily
solicitation outside the quads was
sufficient, and that further solici-
tation within the quads would be
an unnecessary intrusion upon
quad residents.
Acting Daily Business Manager
Lee J. Sclar, '63BAd, said that "the
action taken by IQC is not justi-
fied on the basis of the reasoning
communicated to us.
"When I asked Geary to cite an
instance where past methods of
Daily solicitation had been used as
justification for solicitation by
other student organizations, he
was unable to recall a single case."
Seems Unjustified
"The action seems particularly,
unjustified in light of the fact
that a proposal simnilar to the one
made to IQC has been passed by
Assembly Dormitory Council in a
straw vote."
Acting Daily Editor Michael
Olinick, '63, regretted the action,
saying that "it will deny many in-
coming freshmen the opportunity
to become acquainted with the
campus through two free issues
of The Daily, in which we attempt
to communicate many facts about
the University which they might
otherwise not know.
Acting City Editor Michael Har-
rah, '64BAd, deplored the action
as "clear and obvious discrimina-
tion. Many other .organizations are

Huff Charges
Money Lack
Causes Loss.
Warren Huff, a Michigan State
University trustee, charged that
what he called a "dangerous ero-
sion of our academic position" has
occured at MSU as a result of
the resignations of 27 faculty
Huff said that the large num-
ber of resignations was due to
"plain lack of money.
"We used to lose good people to
industry and to more attractive
locations. Now they are going to
schools in Louisiana, Alabama and
similar places," he said.
MSU President, John Hannah,
told a meeting of the board of
trustees that the salary schedule
at that institution was now "ninth
or tenth in the Big Ten."
Better Off
As a result. Hannah said Thurs-
day, "faculty members get the
idea they'd be better off at other
Big Ten schools or even outside
the Big Ten."
As yet, no action has been taken
by the board regarding a raise in
tuition in order to increase sal-,

To Consider
The Legislature is heading for a
showdown in the next few days on
a new Republican nuisance tax
package that could break the leg-
islative logjam on taxes.
The $85 million package, which
came out of a Republican cau-
cus last Friday, was designed to
meet objections from Democrats
who wanted a minimum $70 mil-
lion in new state revenues before
they would go along with a pack-
age, Rep. Gilbert E. Bursley (R-
Ann Arbor) said.
Bursley added yesterday that
several Democrats have agreed to
support the new levies. The House,
which is split 56-54 in favor of the
Republicans has been unable to
pass any nuisance taxes and will
not until they are able to gain
Democratic support, Rep. Carroll
Newton (R-Delton), the assistant
majority House leader, has said.
Depends on Breweries
Newton explained that certain
Republican legislators whose dis-
trict borders other states or whose
districts depend economically on
breweries will not vote for added
cigarette or beer taxes. Thus a
certain amount of Democratic
support-up to 10 votes on some
levies-is needed, Newton said.
Includes Beer Tax
The tax program includes:
Two cents per bottle tacked on
to the beer tax to bring in $34
million, with half of that ear-
marked to education; two more
cents on the cigarette tax design-
ed to bring in $21 million; $8 mil-
lion to be brought in through a
levy on telephone and telegraph
services; a $7 million boost in
revenues from the liquor excise
tax; and a one mill boost in the
corporation franchise tax design-
ed to bring in $13-14 million.
The Senate has left the initia-
tive on taxation to the House since
the abortive attempt by Demo-
crats and Republican moderates
in the Senate to pass an income
Sen. Elmer R. Porter (R-Bliss-
field), chairman of the Senate Ap-
propriations Committee, has indi-
cated that there will be a $5 mil-
lion boost in the higher education
budget and a $2.5 million hike in
the mental health budget.

Acting Editor
The University bent great ef-
forts this past year in interpret-
ing its, purposes to the general
public while continuing to reap-
praise internal problems, its
president said yesterday.
"The number one problem
externally was attempting to
increase the understanding of
the University's aims and gain-
ing support to achieve them,"
University President .Harlan
Hatcher said in an interview.
This concern was accompan-
ied by the growing expression
of parents' worries that their
children be guaranteed a qual-
ity education.
Come to Grips
"One of the fundamental
requirements of our society is
that the citizens must come to
grips with the question of fi-
nancing education. It is strange
to assume that we should con-
tinue to stultify the growth of
our universities while the rest
of the economy is moving ahead,
at a three per cent yearly rate
and is being urged to acceler-
The University, he admitted,
spent more time in wrestling
with the basic problem of gain-
ing proper support for its pro-
grams this year than in previ-
ous years-and with some hope-
ful results.
The president saw a great un-
derstanding of the University by
legislators and the lay public.
"The legislators have not de-
nied our need for added funds,

but are thwarted by the inabil-
ity to solve fiscal problems,
problems that are plaguing a
great number of states."
Tax Income
Preferring to see a solution
which would permit the states
to accommodate their tax in-
come to federal levies, Hatcher
noted that state governments
feel they have very little reve-
nue at their disposal after the
federal government collects its
"The states should take care
of those things it can handle
best and education is one of
them. I fear we will only get
deeper in the dilemma in the
future, instead of solving it."
On the homefront, President
Hatcher noted that the "con-
tinued faith and dedication of
the faculty is remarkable."
Losses from the teaching and
research staffs reached only a
"natural" level.
Teaching Function
A great deal of "quiet prog-
ress" was accomplished in cur-
riculum, admission and the role
of the teaching function, despite
the handicap of not having an
assured budget.
The president said he was
impressed with the interest and
analyses of students regarding
the problems of the University.
"You can't go far without keep-
ing in contact with the stu-
dents," he said. "They display
a genuine attempt to study and
consider present policies."

Fauri Backs Aged Care
Uinder Social Security
Health insurance for the aged should be included in the social
security system, Dean Fedele F. Fauri of the social work scchool said
Speaking at the -89th annual forum of the National Conference
on Social Welfare in New York city, Fauri noted that "health protec-
tion to meeting rising hospital costs cannot be met exclusively by
private plans, because of the low income level and high cost of
health care for the aged."
Fauri, who is the retiring president of the conference, com-
mented that all alternatives to health insurance for the aged have
"shortcomings." He predicted that the "enactment of legislation

Students in the program will be

To Discuss Details
Of Inplementation
At Today's Meeting
Acting Dean of Women Eliza-
beth Davenport indicated yester-
day that "the Office of Student
Affairs is working out details in
implementing the abolition of
senior hours in University hous-
"This probably means that the
new regulations on senior hours
could be implemented by next
fall," Mrs. Davenport said.
The recommendation for the
elimination of senior hours was
one of a number of proposals pre-
seated to the administration by
Woman's Judiciary Council in
To Meet Today
Mrs. 'Davenport said that senior
hours and the remainder of the
proposals are being carefully dis-
cussed by the administration and
the chairman of Woman's Judic at
a meeting this morning.
The enacting of the new ruling
on senior hours in the dormitories
might call for additional staff per-
sonnel, she explained.
Asst. Dean of Women Elizabeth
Leslie said that "a sign-out system
of keys looks like the most feasible
way of implementing the system
in sorority houses."
Check Out Keys
A senior could check out a key
when she leaves in the evening
and return it after she comes in
at night. If the ke; should disap-
pear after the girl has returned
it, she would not be held respon-
sible for it," Mrs. Leslie explained.
"The sign-out system would in
no way be a check on the girl, but
could provide a check on the keys
for the welfare of the girls living
in the house."
Mrs. Leslie said that peer res-
sure within the house could give
the sorority a way of making sure
that the keys would not be mis-
Will Be Self-Restricting
"Girls want to stay with their
sorority for three years when they
join, and if they have senior priv-
ileges, it will give them the oppor-
tunity to be self-restricting."
Ann McMillan, '63, president of
Panhellenic Association, said that
"the abolition of senior hours
could alleviate many of the prob-
lems caused by senior apartment
permissions and encourage girls
to remain in their houses."
Deborah Cowles, '62, past chair-
man of Woman's Judic, explained
that "if the recommendation on
senior hours is passed, it would be
another step in reflecting the level
of maturity and responsibility that
University women can obtain."
Barbara Portnoy, '63, chairman
of Women's Judic, said that "the
extended privileges for seniors if
passed, must be regarded as both
a privilege and a definite respon-
The report submitted by Judic
also contained recommendations
for the extension of freshman
hours, an easing of overnight per-
missions for women in Ann Arbor
and a revision in sign-out and
late minute systems.

About 52 Year Stay

Acting Associate City Editor
"For 52 years my vocation has been interfering with my avoca-

Retiring Dean Jaul H. Jeserich of the dentistry school was rem-
iniscing about his career at the University since he entered as a
freshman in 1910 aiming for the Law School.
"I came from a school (Watervliet High) with only 43 students,"
he recalled. "There were nine in my graduating class, so the University
really seemed like a big place to me with 3,600 students. Now, with al-
most 25,000 students, it is small in retrospect. To me this is descrip-
tion enough of how the University has changed."
