U' President
Notes Group
Is Operating
By DAVID BLOCK
University President Harlan
Hatcher yesterday returned from
a two-week trip to the West Coast
and discussed his newly created
student housing commission, the
progress of the University's bud-
get request and the possibility of
holding another Presidential con-
vocation in the near future.
President Hatcher said the -,o-
called "blue ribbon" housing om-
mission, designed to investigate
the entire question of student liv-
ing accommodations here, has &l-
ready begun operating. He men-
tioned that a preliminary meeting
between .himself and the 11 re-

last semester in all schools and

PRESIDENT HATCHER

cently-appointed members of the
commission was held shortly be-
fore New Year's Day.
The group is planning to con-
frontsuchproblems as determin-
ing the future needs of students
for University housing and for
privately owned living quarters,
and deciding what type and style
of accommodations the Univer-
sity and Ann Arbor realtors should
plan for in the coming .'ears. They
will also consider the establish-
ment of proper relationship be-
tween the University ind private
landlords in terms of regulating
off-campus housing.
Target Dates
President Hatcher said that no
target date has been set for the
commission, but that it was un-
derstood the issues involved are
urgent ones and that he hopes
the. group will release some con-
clusive findings this spring.
He said that it was extremely
important that a proper balance
between University and private
housing be established in Ann
Arborin order to avoid crises and
confusion in the coming years.
President Hatcher mentioned that
the commission, composed of rep-
resentatives from the faculty, the
student body and the Ann Arbor
community, will hold its first for-
mal meeting this week.
In reference to the University's
record appropriations request of
$55.7 million for 1965-66, Presi-
dent Hatcher indicated he was
still highly optimistic that Gov.
George Romney would continue
his sympathetic attitude toward
higher education by recommend-
ing to the Legislature a University
budget increase at least as favor-
able as this year's record appro-
priation.
1965 Session
The 1965 session of the Legis-
lature opens tomorrow and the
governor must present his specific
budget recommendations within
ten legislative days after the open-
ing of the session. However, Rom-
ney may delay announcing his
program by using his influence
to recess the Legislature for as
long as two weeks after his "state
of the state" speech on Thursday,
President Hatcher commented. If
this happens, then a recommended
University budget may not come
from the governor until early
Febhruary.

LSA Favors
New Four
Day Break
Follows Business
School Move; Others
Likely To Act Soon
By JOHN MEREDITH
The literary college faculty yes
terday yesterday overwhelmingl3
voted in favor of a plan to revise
the exam calendar to give stu-
dents a longer resting period be-
fore final exams.
The proposal, announced by
Dean William Haber of the liter-
ary college after a closed faculty
meeting suggests that students be
given two free class days plus
a weekend to prepare for exams.
The study period would run-either
from Thursday through Sunday
or Saturday through Tuesday.
, Last semester there was only
a one-day break before exams.
Earlier Plan
Yesterday's action is very simi-
lar to a recommendation made by
the school of business administra-
tion faculty last December. How-
ever, this earlier plan does not
specifically provide for. release
from Saturday classes.
"We considered a Sunday
through Tuesday reading period,"
Dean Floyd Bond of the business
administration school remarked.
"Moreover, we requested that con-
sideration be given to the desir-
ability of dispersing the extra
study days throughout the exam
period instead of grouping them
all at the beginning.
Haber did not see any serious
difficulty in reconciling the lit-
erary college and business admin-
istration school proposal.
Know Opinion
"The literary college faculty
acted favorably on a suggestion
from Student Government Coun-
cil relayed by Vice-President for
Academic Affairs R o g e r W.
Heyns," he said. "Our motion is
a recommendation to be submitted
to the administration and, ulti-
mately, to the Regents, who wish-
ed to know the opinion of the
faculty on this matter.
Heyns could not be reached for
comment on possible administra-
tion. action. When the matter
first was considered in December,
he indicated that plans for a
longer reading period could be
implemented in the 1964-'65 cal-
ender year.
Other divisions of the Univer-
sity are also considering the prob-
lem of an extended study period
before final exams.
The education school faculty
will discuss the matter at a meet-
ing this afternoon. While not
wanting to make a definite pre-
diction, education school Dean
William Olson said that he an-
ticipated a favorable response to
the longer study period proposal.
There are indications that the
engineering school, too, will fall
in line with the literary college
and business administration school
faculties.
Dean Stephen Attwood of the
engineering school said that, since
engineering students often take
supplementary courses in the lit-
erary college, it would be awkward
for the two divisions to operate
with different reading period pro-
visions.
"I believe that our faculty will
probably go along with the lit-
erary college recommendation," he
said. "However, no action will be
taken before our February meet-

ing."
