House Receives Plan
For New 'U' Housigi
Warner Introduces Resolution Pact
For New Self-Liquidating Facilities
By GAIL EVANS,
A resolution seeking legislative approval of the University's plans
to build a new co-educational student housing center and separate
cafeteria at North Campus was introduced in the House recently.
Rep. James F. Warner (R-Ypsilanti) introduced the package of
resolutions to allow state universities and colleges to build self-liquidat-
ing student facilities.
The University's self-liquidating project would cost $3 million,
but would be financed through revenue bonds based on charges to

students who use the

HOUSING:
ACLU Sets
Suggestions
By MICHAEL SATTINGER,
AND WILLIAM BENOIT
In a recent letter to Mayor Cecil
0. Creal, (R), the Ann Arbor-
Washtenaw County branch of the
American Civil Liberties Union
criticized and suggested amend-
ments for the proposed fair hous-
ing ordinance.
T h e AC LU communication
urges that the section pertaining
to discrimination by financial in-
stitutions be retained.
Creal had called for the removal
of the section on the grounds
That he had never encountered
discrimination by a financial in-
stitution. He termed the section
"just a harassment."
The communication also urges
retaining intact the portion which
details the injunction procedure.
Under the proposal as it now
stands the city attorney, after
having a complaint referred to
him from the Human Relations
Commission, may seek an injunc-
tion from the circuit court.
To Decide
ACLU believes that the court
should be the body to decide the
termination of injun'ltion action'
Prof. Nicholas D. Kavarinoff of
the math department and secre-
tary of the local ACLU branch,
said, last night.
However, ACLU also advocates
the inclusion of an "explicit state-
ment that upon fair notice a
hearing be given a person alleged
to have violated this ordinance,
and that due process be accorded
the accused- and the complainant."
Due process would provide for
legal counsel and the right to
face one's accusor, Prof. Kazarin-
off said.
Housing Units
ACLU further reconnends that
a multiple housing accommoda-
tion be redefined to include all
dwellings containing three or
more housing units. The present
proposal sets five as {the number
of units which would ;form a mul-
tiple housing accommnodation.
Thehreasons given by ACLUfor
the change are that substantially
more housing outside of the cen-
tral area would then be included
and that three is the number used
to define multiple housing ac-
commodations in the city zoning
ordinance.
Lastly, ACLU recommends that
"a section be added which would
specifically- prohibit discrimina-
tion by all real estate agents In
the buying, selling and renting
of property."
First - ward Democratic city
councilman Lynn W. Eley said
last night at a meeting of Ann
Arbor Democrats that a fair
housing ordinance will be passed.
Significant Step
"We would probably amend

Federal funds available for con-
e used. The down-payment will
ome from the general housing
funds, Vice-President of Student
Affairs James A. Lewis has said.
The co-educational living cen-
ter without internal eating facili-
ties, now in the early planning
stages, will house a total of about
500 upper-class, graduate and for-
eign students who do not want to
have their meals included in their
bill, he commented.
The center will include\several
small buildings which will offer
small unit living with mostly sin-
gle and double rooms, he noted.
A cafeteria will be built nearby
to provide access to meals for all
students and faculty living or
working at the North Campus.
Lewis had explained that Burs-
ley Hall would not be built because
undergraduate enrollment has not
grown very much over the past
four years and there is no need
for large type housing. He added
in a discussion in January that
plans for the hall had been com-
pleted and if a need for such hous-
ing arises the plans for it will be
pulled out and used.
The plans for this student hous-
ing project, developed in Janu-
ary, after the University decided
not to build Bursley Hall at North
Campus, a proposed large, co-
educational residence hall.
Earlier in' the year Vice-Presi-
dent Lewis indicated that flexibil-
ity and variety would be, factors
taken into consideration in the
building of the project.
Early plans call for 100 singles,
100 suites having a study and a
bedroom for two people and 100
doubles. Washrooms v rill be locat-
ed between the rooms. There will
be a large main lounge with semi-
private areas. Telephone service
will be provided in every room.
Short corridors, a minimum
number of floors and terraces may
be incorporated into the struc-
tures.
There will be apartment facili-
ties for the manager-director and
laundry facilities in each housing
unit.
Vice-President Lewis has pre-
dicted that the project would be
completed by the fall of 1965.
Parking facilities and possible
air conditioning are being consid-
ered.
Stand Firm,
,on Walk-Out
PARIS (P) - Despite growing
labor unrest, President Charles de
Gaulle's government refused to
give ground last night to 200,000
striking coal miners.
But it raised no new threats
to break the week-long walkout.
Premier Georges Pompidou in a
nationwide radio-television ad-
dress offered no olive branches,
however, and repeated the govern-
ment's position: no negotiations
until the miners return to the
pits.
. The miners have said they
won't go back to work until ne-
gotiations start.

Presents
Merger
Proposal
By RUTH HETMANSKI
The Michigan Union-Women's
League Study Committee yesterday
accepted, with revisions, a rec-
ommendation from its drafting
committee embodying pronosals
for a merger between the Union
and the League. \,
This document was the first
paper coming from the study com-
mittee to present a unified stand
on, the merger issue. While the
paper does not represent the com-
mittee's final decision on the mer-
ger question, it is the first work-
ing draft of a recommendation
that will find its way, in a much
revised form, to the governing
boards of the Union and League.
Approval by these groups would
mean a substantial step towards
actual establishment of a Union-
League merger, as proposed in the
recommendation.
The recommendation will be
presented in its revised form to the
Unfoi oard on March 14. Wo-
men's League president Margaret
Skiles, '63, also attended this board
meeting as a representative of the
League. On Tuesday, March 21,
Union president Robert Finke, '63,
and other committee members
from the Union will meet with the
League Board to present the ten-
tative recommendation for the
comment of each board.
In part, the recommendation
states that "it is the essential
recommendation of the committee
that the Union and the League
and their facilities become one
organization." It sets up a Stu-
dent Activities Committee com-
posed of four senior offiders and
eight committee chairman, solely
responsible for the planning and
programming of student activities
for the new organization. Financ-
ing is suggested by allocated reve-
nues from the governing board of
the merged organization. This Stu-
dent Activities Committee would
cooperate with the Office of Stu-
dent Affairs to establish an ail-
campus committee to "calendar,
oversee, and administer the ac-
tivities of student organizations."
Fereney Hits
At Michigan
Government
+ Democratic State Central Com-
mittee chairman Zolton A. Fer-
ency, speaking at a meeting of
Ann Arbor Democrats, hit whak
he termed "dragging feet" in
Michigan government.
He noted that "many important
projects have been made to wait
by Gov. George Romney, includ-
ing an expanded mental health
program, an improved medical aid
bill, increased aid to higher edu-
cation and a plan for much-need-
ed fiscal reform in our state.
"The governor does not under-
stand the role and function of
government in society," Ferency
said. "He only backs those bills
likely to succeed in the Legisla-
ture, an attitude typical of a
salesman."
As support for his views, the
Wayne county Democrat cited the
govern-r's "mis - handling" of'
Michigan State University approp-
riations.
There are no earmarked funds
for education in Michigan as some
people have maintained, Ferency
said. He noted "a potentially dan-
gerous situation" in that money
for state schools was entirely in
the hands of the Legislature.

BEIRUT ()-Army rebels claim-
last night they won control of
Syria "without a drop of blood-

reports of fighting persisted andJ
Iraq's own revolutionary regime
sent troops to the border to sup-
port the Syrian uprising.
Waves of fear and uncertainty
swept the Middle East as this up-
rising followed by only 28 days
the bloody revolution in Iraq. Both
revolutions professed support of
President Gamal Abdel Nasser of
the United Arab Repubic and
called for Arab unity.
But UAR officials in Cairo were
cautious, mindful that old enemiest
made when Syria and Egypt were
united ir the United Arab Repub-
lic might have had a nand in the
uprising in Damascus.
Iraqi Regime
Cairo joined the Iraqi regime,
however, in warning outside na-
tions to keep hands off the Syrian
revolution.
Their warnings were obviously
aimed at Israel, whose army fac-
ing Syria was reported on thet
alert, and monarchist Jordan.a
The cabinet of Jordan, uneasyt
about what appeared to be suc-
cesses of pro-Nasser factions in
Syria and Iraq in a short span
of four weeks, held an emergency
session. King Hussein presided. Af-.S
terward Premier Nasfi Tell said
he considered the Syrian revolt an
internal affair.I
Stormy Seasl
Premier Khaled El Azem, who
tried to steeer a middle, compro-
mising course in the stormy seas
of Syrian politics, tok refuge in
the Turkish embassy in Damascus,
officials in Ankara said. Thus he
possibly escaped the fate of Iraqit
Premier Abdel Karim Kassem, whot
was executed by the rebels in
Baghdad.
Syrian borders were sealed and
international communications
blocked. While Damascus radiot
proclaimed victory, diplomatic re-t
ports indicated there was at least
some resistance.1
Resistance to the revolt could be
expected from inside Syria's army.
Powerful army units staged the1
uprising of September of 1961, de-
nounced Nasser, and took Syria<
out of the UAR partnership.

Hits Failure
To Educate
On Morals
By DAVID MARCUS
Internal pressures are the major
factor in preventing the secular
university from teaching moral
values, John J. Meng, president of
Hunter College, said last night.
Speaking before the Newman
Club as a part of its "Catholic
Voices" lecture series, Meng ex-
plored the subject of "Is the
Secular University Censored from
Teaching Moral Values."
It is the academic ideal itself,
which promotes a scholarly skep-
ticism in all areas, that prevents
the academician from accepting
and promoting any sort of absolute
values, Meng said.
Absolute Truth
Citing the example of his own
experience as a historian, Meng
said, "My colleagues sometimes
questioned how I could reject the
notion of absolute truth in deal-
ing with the Revolutionary War
period and at the same time be-
lieve in absolute moral values."
This skepticism, which promotes
a disbelief in absolutes, does not
in itself constitute censorship.
"Censorship involves conscious
coercion," Meng pointed out. In
the case of moral values rot being
taught in colleges and universities,
the pressure against doing so is not
a matter of such corecion, he
added.
Two Results
However, the pressure has had
two results in the make up of
the academic community.
First, the 'academic world is
largely in the hands of material-
ists. Second, those professors with
strong religious and moral be-
liefs shy away from teaching them
in the classroom in fear of being
charged with indoctrination.
Another aspect of the problem is
that one "cannot have absolute
moral values without religion,"
Meng said. This means that any
exploration of moral values in in-
stitutions of higher education
without a corollary exploration of
theological questions, Meng said.
Public Funds
Most restrictions on teaching
moral values come in the form of
laws saying that public institu-
tions cannot use public funds to
teach the tenets of any particular
denomination, Meng said.
However, religious questions
could be explored without advocat-
ing the dogma of any particular
religion, he said. Public univer-
sities could overcome any public
pressure by using the doctrine of
academic freedom, he added.
Meng also noted that in general,
"university and college executives
are more likely to be bewailing
the lack of moral values than
trying to exclude them from the
curricula."

DRESS REGULATIONS - Vice-President for Student Affairs

EUROPEAN:
Kohnstamm Sees Need
For Open Community
By H. NEIL BERKSON
Daily Correspondent

CHICAGO-"Only a European Community open to those who ire
willing to join on the same basis, accepting the same rules and com-
mon institutions, can change Europe from a firetrap into an influ-
ence for peace,".Max Kohnstamm, vice-president of the Action Com-
mittee for the United States of Europe, told the closing session of the

18th National Conference on'
Higher Education Wednesday.
The Action Committee, formed
in 1955 under the leadership of
Jean Monnet, is sponsored by most
of the Common Market political
parties and trade unions. It seeks
to formulate new ideas and pro-
posals to further the concept of
European unity.
Without mentioning French
President Charles de Gaulle by
name, Kohnstamm made clear
that he thinks the negotiations
over British entry to the Common
Market broke down due to "a
fundamental difference in view
about what is the essence of the
Community" and "about the role
a united Europe should play in our
world."
Back to the Jungle
"Where are we going," he asked,
"to a Community which is a proc-
ess of bringing peoples and na-
tions together in order to adapt
themselves, jointly to changing
circumstances, to a world of inter-
dependence-or back to the jungle
of sovereign states, with states
maybe bigger, but certainly not
better than before?"
Tracing the history of Europe
which gave rise to the Common
Market, Kohnstamm said that aft-
er World War II "there was a
strong feeling that the old struc-
ture was just not good enough any
more, that new forms had to be
found which would make a repeti-
tion of what had happened twice
in one generation impossible." He
praised the Marshall Plan and
America's constant insistence on a
"large, integrated European mar-
ket."
Britain was not as profoundly
affected by the war to reverse
her traditional European policy of
aloofness, he said.
Moved Slowly
He further indicated that when
Britain finally did see the need
to join Europe it moved too slow-
ly. "Had there been more speed,
less attention to economic detail
and more explanation of the fun-
damental political facts, things
might have gone differently."

Amendm ents
To Changes
Davenport Says May
Continue Negotiations
For Final Authority
By MICHAEL'IWEIG
The Office of Student Affairs
has decided ,to retain final au-
thority on all dress regulation
changes while imposing amend-
ments to the new regulations re-
cently adopted by the residents of
Alice Lloyd Hall.
Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs James A. Lewis said last
night that the OSA "is retaining
the authority previously vested in
the office of the Dean of Women."
Assistant to the Vice-President
for Student Affairs Elizabeth Dav-
enport said that OSA officials and
members of Assembly House Coun-
cil will continue negotiations
which may place final authority
for dress regulations with AMC.
Authority
The question of authority vested
in the individual residence halls
did not enter the talks between
the OSA and Lloyd residents, she
added. "We were trying to get a
workable set of rules for the wo-
men of Alice Lloyd, and consider-
ed only the details of the propos-
ed regulation changes."
Alice Lloyd President Marion
Jackson, '63, expressed "satisfac-
tion" with the "compromise" on
the final version of the new dress
regulations. "It is a step forward,
but we could have liked fial
authority on the question," she
said.
Miss Jackson explained that all
dress regulations are based on two
criteria convenience for the resi-
dents and consideration for t e
public and other residents. "The
changes in our. proposals were
based on public consideration, and
while they represent inconven-
ience to the women, I understand
why the OSA insisted on them,"
she said.
Two of Five
The OSA agreed inefull to two
of five proposed changes, niodi-
fied the other three, and explicitly
forbade appearance in bare feet
in any public area although the
women had made no request for
such permission, Miss Jackson in-
dicated.
The women had asked that blue
jeans and sweatshirts be allowed as
dress to breakfast and lunch every
day. The OSA change allows such
dress on Saturday only.
The women had asked permis-
sion to wear curlers in the public
areas of the main* floor "so that
they could pick up mail, and get
change, at the main desk," but
the OSA limited appearance in
curlers to Saturday morning, Miss
Jackson explained. Blue jeans may
be worn in that area only Satur-
day morning, although the women
had asked for permission for every
day.
Abrams Asks
Vote Reforms
Student Government Council
member Howard Abrams, '63,
seeking re-election to Council
next week, has strongly recom-
mended campus wide election of
the officers of the Michigan Un-
ion and the Women's League.
He cited this solution as an
answer to the problem raised by
the Union Board of Directors in
allowing the official publication
Union Reports to print editorial
views.,
If the officers were elected
democratically, then there would

be less objection to the Union
participating in politics and using
student money for it, he ex-
plained.

New Interest
In violations
special To The Daily
CHICAGO -- The American
Association of University Pro-
fessors is taking a new and strong
interest in university violations of
student rights, accoruing to Prof.
David Fellman of the University
of Wisconsin, chairman of' the
AAUP committee on violations of
academic freedom and tenure.
Prof. Fellman, in an iiiterview
at the 18th National Conference
on Higher Education, explained
that AAUP has established a spe-
cial committee to deal with stu-
dent problems. "I made the mo-
tion at our convention two years
ago, because I found my own com-
mittee just didn't have the time
to deal with all the incidents
which arose.
Many cases grew out of the
disclaimer affidavit formerly in
the National Defense Education
Act, he said ."Further, I was con-
cerned with a number of disci-
plinary cases where students faced
both improper procedures and
punishments."
