House Move
Asks Repeal,
The House of Representatives
passed and sent a bill to the
president last Saturday exempting
the University from paying a cus-
toms duty on a German made
ship model towing carriage.
The bill contains a rider, added
by Sen. Jacob Javitz (R-NY),
raising the amount of gifts a for- .
eign visitor may bring into this
country to $100,
Rep. George Meader (R-Mich),
the sponsor of the bill, predicted
that President John F. Kennedy
would sign the measure.
The University asked Congress
to exempt it from the $9,500 duty
claiming that it was not the in-
tent of Congress to place a high
tax on scientific instruments not
available in the United States.

The biggest problem with this
year's orientation program was
communication, Jack Petoskey,
orientation director, said.
With the new use of residence
hall grouping for summer oriented
freshmen, the problem of contact
among leaders and the office was
difficult, he said.
Scheduling orientation is a "tre-
mendous" job, he stressed, and
the orientation committee was very
satisfied with the way that this
year's program was handled.
Strive To Improve
"We try to improve each year,"
he added and this fall television
was installed for the first time in
order to accommodate the large
number of students.
Attendence was overwhelming
at the coke breaks at the Michi-
gan Union and the Michigan

men information about dormitory
facilities," Bruce Groom, '63,
I orientation committee chairman
added.
Freshmen wanted to know about
the "extras" such as practice
rooms, snack bars and storage
areas, he said. "Most freshmen
don't get to know this until three
weeks or so later."
More Research
Petoskey stressed that although
it was felt that the program this
year was good, more research and
planning would be done to im-
prove the program for next year.
He added that each year more
problems arise due to the increas-
ing numbers of students arriving
on campus.
Television, he said, could be used
more often in the future if a
scarcity of leaders is felt when
the trimester program goes into
effect.
Difficulty also arises, Petoskey
indicated, with scheduling of stu-
dent-faculty discussions because
of the use of large auditoriums
for conselling and testing during
orientation week.

For this reason, tickets initally
were to be used to limit the num-
ber of students at these sessions.
It was later found that the at-
tendence did not warrant this.
One of the most successful pro-
grams, Petoskey stated, was the
Mich-Info at the Union. The tele-
vised panel discussion was beamed
to over twelve hundred students.
"We can never tell when the
students will decide to go to the
various programs," he said, "and
plans are therefore made on the
basis of past years."
Other Factors
Another factor to consider, he
said was the fact that non-sum-
mer oriented students had to go
through registration and have
speech clinic and health service
check-ups which presents a ser-
ious problem in planning activi-
ties.
Freshmen surveys on the sum-
mer orientation program indicated
that most incoming students felt
that the summer program was in-
teresting and worthwhile.

About 30 male students are still
housed in temporary quarters on
the ninth floor of South, Quad-
rangle, Assistant Dean of Men for
Residence Halls John Hale an-
nounced yesterday.
Hale noted that all of them
will probably be able to get per-
manant quarters by the end of
the week, as all rooms that were
not claimed by 5:00 p.m. yester-
day will be appropriated for these
students.

After posting bond on the $39,- League League, he said. Fresh-
