May Let Pledges
Out of Contracts
Lewis To Consider Plan To Release
Upperclassmen, Relieve Crowding
By ROBERT RIPPLER
Vice-President for Student Affairs James A. Lewis said last night
he will consider a proposal allowing this fall's upperclass pledges to
move into their fraternity houses without delay. The scheme would
be aimed at alleviating'the current residence halls crowding.
Lawrence Lossing, '65, president of Inter-fraternity Council,
offered the plan Saturday to Director of Residence Halls Eugene
/ Haun. Haun declined the plan at the time and had no comment on it
Lossing's proposal would let pledges above freshman out of their
residence hall contracts. They could then move into fraternity houses

Jones and Gray's consideratio
of court action stems from variou
1) They moved out of the
apartments one week before the
lease expired. When Gray return

some equipment he left there, h
found that the locks on the door

2) As of yet, damage deposits
consisting of one month's rent
have not been returned, Jone
said. If they are not returned
Jones feels that there are ground
for court action, since neither h
nor Gray were ever given an op
portunity to clean the apartments.
Jones assumes he and Gray wer

Approximately 35 members of
CORE demonstrated Aug. 23,e
week before the leases were die t

move to their new lodgings. The
CORE members sang freedom
songs and picketed the building
while the families moved.

as soon as they pledged. Such
pledges usually have to honor
their year-long contracts and
thus cannot move into their
houses until the next fall.
The vacancies left by these
pledges would help relieve the
residence hall crowding, Lossing
commented last night.
Two other student leaders join-
ed Lossing last night in viewing
the plan as a good partial remedy
to crowding in the residence halls,
which have been jammed beyond
normal capacity by the arrival of
hundreds of extra sttidents this
Panhellenic Association Presi-
dent Ann Wickins, '65, said the
plan would not only help alleviate
the crowding, but would "help
pledges acquaint themselves" with
their fraternities. She noted that
since all University sororities are
now-filled to capacity with mem-
bers and transfers from other
schools, she was not able to pro-'
pose a similar plan for women.
"Had they been able to antici-
pate such an opportunity last
spring, many sororities could have
provided room for pledges under
such a proposal," she said.
Maxine Loomis, '65, chairman
of Assembly Association, agreed
that the plan would help solvec
the current problems. She stress-t
ed, however, that "such a pro-i
posal should operate only on at
voluntary basis," with pledges
free to choose whether or not theyf
wish to move outside the"'quads.i
She noted that the Executive
Council of Assembly Association,
took tentative action last night to
establish an "ad hoc committee"t
to investigate the crowding situa-

this one is valued more highly
than others because it finally
frees nearly $750,000 in loan funds
which have already been promised

The Office of Education, which
distributes the loan funds, had
predicted these totals to officials

:ABOR DAY KICK-OFF:
Johnson Callsfo National Unityj
By HAROLD WOLMAN
President Lyndon B. Johnson opened his presidential cam-
paign Monday before a Labor Day crowd in Detroit's Cadillac
Square with a speech emphasizing national unity.
The President's speech, as he had announced previously, was
not the highly partisan speech usually associated with a presiden-
tial campaign. However, while Johnson did not once mention the
Republican Party or its nominee, Sen.. Barry Goldwater, his
speech was replete with references to policies advocated by the
'Brotherhood Among Men'
Johnson told the crowd that he had come there "to call for
national unity. I plead for brotherhood among men and under-
standing among nations."
He called for cooperation between all elements of American
society: "Farmers and city dwellers, bankers and laborers know
that, by strengthening each group, we strengthen the nation-
no such thing as a conventional nuclear weapon. For 19 peril-
filled years, no nation has loosed the atom against another. To
do so now is a political decision of the highest order . . . No
President of the United States can divest himself of the respon-
sibility for such a decision."
Johnson also depicted the havoc and destruction which a
nuclear war would create. "In the first nuclear exchange, 100
million Americans and more than 100 million Russians would be
dead. And when it was over, our great cities would be in ashes,
and our' fields would be barren, and our industry would be
destroyed, and our American dream would have vanished."
The President then declared, "As long as I am President, I
will bend every effort to make sure that that day never comes.
I am not the first President to speak here in Cadillac Square,
and I do not intend to be the last."
The .highly partisan crowd received Johnson's speech politely
but without great enthusiasm. Earlier, members of the United
Auto Workers union had heckled Gov. George Romney-sharing
