Majority at Hearing,
Speaks for Passage
Fair Housing Ordinance Receives
Support from Churches, Individuals
About 185 people filled the Ann Arbor City Council meeting room
last night to witness the second public hearing on the proposed fair
housing ordinance where a majority of the individuals, who expressed
opinions, urged immediate passage of a strong bill.
The University did not send a representative to testify at the
hearing. Vice-President for Academic Affairs Roger W. Heyns said
yesterday that University President Harlan Hatcher met with him and
the three-man advisory committee on fair housing yesterday afternoon.
They discussed the preliminary draft of a report on the University's
'relations to a fair housing ordi-
nance. He said that no decision to
send a representative to the hear-
ing came out of the meeting.
Expects Final Report
President Hatcher commented
that he expects the final report,
but does not know when. "When
it is complete, I will decide wheth-
- er to send a personal representa-
4 tive to a hearing," he added.
He also said that the commit-
tee's findings will be "helpful to
the community and the council,"
but would not specify in what way
it would be helpful.
Of the 29 people who spoke at
the hearing, two opposed the ordi-
nance, saying that it should be
put to the voters for ansadvisory

by council itself.

Boos Cites
On Delta
Rep. William A. Boos (D-Sag-
inaw) noted yesterday that the
Legislature does not want to get
into "open warfare" with Michi-
gan's ten state-supported colleges
over expansion in higher educa-
This desire is indicated by the
Legislature's failure to approve
plans for the establishment of a
degree-granting institution on the
Delta College campus, which would
operate under the auspices of the
In a letter to University Presi-
dent Harlan Hatcher, Boos urged
the University to go ahead with
plans to set up a program accom-
modating 200 students of the jun-
ior year level at Delta. President
Hatcher indicated yesterday that
he had not yet received the letter.
Full Authority
Boos commented that the Uni-
versity has full legal authority to
go ahead with the plan.
"If the University were to spon-
sor such a program, they could not
be criticized any more than they
are now," Boos said, referring to
censuring of the University from
the Michigan Council of College
The plan closely coincides with
an interim proposal now in the
hands of the Legislature which
would place the control for such
an operation with the University.
Proposal Completed
The proposal was drawn up with
the help of President Hatcher,
Executive Vice-President Marvin
Niehuss and Delta officials and
was introduced approximately twos
weeks ago.
"Right now everyone seems to be
waiting for organizational ideas
from Gov. George Romney's blue-
ribbon educational study commit-
tee," Boos said. The committee was
formed for the purpose of provid-
ing workable plans for growth of
higher education.
"Many people on both sides of
the Delta expansion argument are
peppering the governor's office,"
Boos noted.

OTTAWA - Canadian elections

The Canadian election April 8,
for the House of Commons is in

whether Canada should accede to;

Whittaker Calls for Rebirth of Morality

' 1


"The breakdown of American morality is as great a threat to
this country's future as any external enemy," the Honorable Charles
E. Whittaker, retired United States Supreme Court justice, said at
the Law School's annual case club banquet last night.
He explained that the only way to achieve this end is through
a rebirth of personal morality by labor, business and political leaders.
- Whittaker cited nepotism on the
part of our elected representatives
as a blatant disregard of morality.
"If this practice were carried out
" covertly and discovered by the
Jnewspapers, there would be a
tremendous scandal," he said.

'Mild' Report
On Securities

The Michigan Memorial-Phoenix Project is considering new
means 'of financing when the $2 million raised by the last fund drive
in 1959 runs out.
The project has a budget of approximately $400,000 a year.
Funds for it had been raised by soliciting alumni and industry
support. The University contributes slightly less than $100,000 a



year, recognizing the Phoenix lab-
oratory's work in teaching and
academic research, Phoenix Direc-
tor Prof. William Kerr of the nu-
clear engineering department ex-
He said that a 'fund drive did
not commit the project to an-
other one, once its money ran out.
Because of this, alternate means'
of financing the project were dis-
cussed at last month's meeting
of the Development Council.
Several Alternatives
He cited several alternatives the
project could use:
1) Industry could be encouraged
to contribute smaller amounts over
an indefinite period, rather than
a large amount over a fixed time;
2) The University could increase
its share of paying the Phoenix
laboratory costs. Currently it pays
slightly less than 50 per cent of
its cost;
3) The project could attempt to
be self-supporting. However, this
is. probably unfeasible as there is
not enough revenue available from
fees to cover the project's research
and educational activities; or
4) The project could seek fed-
eral grants to maintain it as well
as for specific projects. This is un-
likely as the federal government
tends to support specific research
projects by contracts or grants.
Project Expansion
However, the project should ex-
pand, Prof. Kerr asserted. He said
that the project was considering
extending the power level of the
reactor and expanding it for more
elaborate experiments.
The reactor was designed about
10 years ago, Prof. Kerr noted, and
should be modernized.
In addition, the number of ap-
plications for Phoenix support of
atomic energy-related research
has increased, he said. The project
spends approximately $100,000
supporting such work.

Dean of the Medical School Alex-

for the building. The University
has been seeking this structure
since 1950.

will be connected to the first med-
