authored by Prof. Robin Barlow of the economics
the Conference on Religion and Race, gave an es-

timate of the number of "poor" families in Ann Arbor. The esti-
mate of 1800 "poor" families was based on subsistence living
costs, not on a particular income level such as $3000 per year.
Barlow recommended that this 1800 figure be taken as a
"rough guide" for "community action to alleviate poverty." His
report recognized that although there is a "need" for low-cost
housing here, the "demand" for such housing may not be as
large.
"There remains the problem of translating the estimate of
the extent of poverty into an estimate of the effective demand
for low-cost housing units," Barlow wrote.
However, he added, It seems clear that if low-cost. housing
units were made available at rents, say, $15 per month below
those charged on accommodations of comparable quality in the
poorer sections of the city, then several hundred such units
would eventually be demanded.
"A program," Barloy concluded, "aimed at providing 100
to 200 new units each year until the demand was satisfied would
be both prudent and humane."
Another report prepared for the HRC by Thomas H. Moore,
Grad, dealt directly with the low-cost rental housing need in

LOW-INCOME FAMILIES are forced to live in homes like this
one in the north central area of Ann Arbor. Sometimes more
than one family live in such houses. Two recent studies show
that there is a need for low-cost housing in Ann Arbor. No action,
however, has been taken toward a low-cost housing program by
the city.

DORM STAFF:

Haun Confirms Change

By LEONARD PRATT
and MERLE WESTON
Eugene Haun, director of Uni-
versity residence halls, confirmed
yesterday that his office is re-
questing achange in the residence
hall staff organization for next
year. The proposed alignment will
lower a few staff salaries in the
process of raising most.
Dormitories
SRequire,
$45 Deposit
By MARY LOU BUTCHER
Contributing Editor
Y..
Beginning next fall, dormitory
residents will be required to
maintain a housing deposit of $45
in lieu of the present $50 enroll-
ment deposit. Students within the
residence halls were informed of
the decision last Friday and re-
quested to deposit the sum, re-
fundable upon the .students' leav-
ing the dormitory system, between
April 15-Aug. 30.
According to Eugene Haun, di-
rector of residence halls, the ac-
tion constitutes a return to the
policy in effect prior to 1962, at
which time the University estab-
lished the continuing enrollment
deposit which all students were
required to maintain throughout
their period of attendance.
The Office of the Registrar re-
cently announced a change of
regulations so that although new
students will be required to pay
the $50 enrollment deposit upon
admission, the amount will be ap-
plied to student fees for their first
term upon completion of registra-
tion. Failure to enroll will result
in loss of the deposit. Following
the close of fall registration. the
University will apply the enroll-
ment deposits of all students to
tuition and other student fees.
Charges'
Haun said -the residence halls
office has been able to rely upon
the continuing enrollment deposit
as well as it had on the previous-
ly-existing housing deposit for
assessing charges for breach of
contract, property damage and
nissing property.
However, with the r e c e n t
CORRECTION
A report appearing in yester-
day's paper inaccurately quoted
Inter-Quadrangle Council Pres-
ident John Eadie, '65, as saying
there "definitely" will be a
residence hall rate hike next
fall. Eadie was reiterating an
earlier statement ,in which he
predicted t h e r e "probably"
would be such a raise.

Present staff structures in men's
dorms are quite different from
those in women's, Haun explained,
because of the fact that they were
organized some years ago when
the University had both a dean of
men and a dean of women. The
dormitories were then supervised
by each individual office, and th 'ir
staff structures were accordingly
different.
This lack of similarity led to
budgetary confusion and to staff-
ers performing similar jobs for
generally the same salary. Haun
then appointed a series of two
committees to study the structures
and to recommend a single unified
staff system, for the dorms.
Three 'Lines'
These committees have recom-
mended a staff organized along
three "lines" or staff levels. Haun
said his office has fillowed the
recommendations of the commit-
tee in requesting staff positions
and salaries for next gear.
The peakiposition in both men's
and women's halls next year ill
be the "resident director." This

position there will be the resident
advisor. The recommc-ided salary
will be a $675 deduction from the
room and board fee; this recom-
mendation is still subject to bud-
getary approval.
Replacement
This will replace the men's staff
counselor who received $520, ap-
proximately 60 per cent of room
and board in a double room. In
the women's halls, the positions of
graduate and undergraduate coun-
selor will be combined. The under-
graduate counselor was previously
paid at the same rate as a staff
counselor while the graduate
counselor received total room and.
board, generally for a single, as
well as a salary of $25 per month.
Women now serving as graduatex
counselor will the;, be the only

At this point the systems diverge
slightly. The men's structure
maintains the associate advisor

Evokes Of tic
By CLARENCE FANTO
Many University professors had
high praise yesterday for Presi-
dent Lyndon B. Johnson's Mon-
day night address on voting rights
to a joint session of Congress.
Prof. Robert C. Angell, direc-
tor of the Center for Research on
Conflict Resolution, called John-
son's speech "very good, but its
impact will be up to Congress.'
Angell viewed the speech as force-
ful and hoped it would persuade
congressmen to approve the vot-
ing rights measure.
Prof. Robert D. Vinter, asso-
ciate dean of the School of Socia -
Work, said "it was a magnificent
speech, butnI'm sorry Johnson
found it necessary to wait a
week." He predicted the address
would have a profound impact bu'
that it's "cooling-off" effect on
civil rights demonstrators woulk
be only temporary. "The dem-
onstrators will find it necessar3-
to keep the heat on until Con-
gress acts," Vinter said.

Punishment
Gamson Says Strike
To Be Cancelled Only
If U.S. Policy Shuts
By ROBERT MOORE
Despite widespread condemna-
Lion of its methods, the Univer-
sity faculty group planning to
cancel classes in protest of gov-
ernment policy in Viet Nam will
stick firmly to the principles it
adopted in an organizational
meeting Monday night.
Asked whether the group would
change its plans now that the
state Senate has advised punish-
ment for striking faculty mern-
bers, Prof. William Gamson of the
sociology department, g r o u I
spokesman, reaffirmed Monday's
stand. "The only thing upon
which our decision to cancel
classes will depend on is United
States policy in Viet Nam."
Later, Prof. Gamson said, "We
respect the governor's feelings
and the state Legislature's, but
in the end we have to answer
to our own consciences and meet
our responsibilities to students,
university, and country."
Number to 35
The number of teachers com-
mitted to the walkout was up to
35, Prof. Gamson told The Daily
yesterday afternoon.
In a revised statement of their
philosophy, the group declared:
"If our government is to be re-
strained from pursuing its pres-
ent hazardous course, a signifi-
cant portion of public opinion
must be mobilized against its pol-
icies. '
Complexity
"In view of the complexity of
the problem and the difficulty in
getting reliable information about
Viet Nam, our role as intellectuals
is particularly crucial. We mus'
voice our protest in a way that
will at once communicate the
gravity of the situation, encour-
age others to take action, and
bring about a constructive discus-
sion of alternative policies for the
government to follow.
The conference will concentrate.
on "finding viable solutions to the
predicament in Viet Nam." Speak-
ers will represent as many per-
spectives as possible within the
drive to get American forces out
Df Viet Nam; the government and
pro-involvement side will not be
specifically presented, however,
because it has already been given
ample representation, the group
decided.
- On Friday, March 18, the fac-
ulty members will hold a bucket
drive to get funds to pay speak-
ers' expenses and rental facili-
ties. They are studying the pos-
sibilities of borrowing an Ann Ar-
