University residence halls, already leading tle high-price

Rates will rise to $960 for a single room, $900 for a dou-
ble and $845 for a small double or triple unit during the up-
coming school year, Residence Hall Business Manager Leon-
ard Schaadt announced recently. Each fee, which includes
board, will be $34 above the prices paid this year. These exist-
ing levels were set in the fall of 1962, when a uniform system f
of prices was established.
A question has been raised, however as to whether the
new charges were, enacted in such a way as to make them le- '

who finally yielded and established new free parking lots.

Counci .KillsAmendments
To, Fair Hbusing Ordin'ance
By JEFFREY GOODMAN
Two amendments to strengthen Ann Arbor's year-old fair housing
ordinance were defeated in City Council last month. Meanwhile, the
courts wrestled with the question of whether the statute itself is legal.
The law is aimed at eliminating racial discrimination in the
rental or sale of local housing. A landlord, realtor or loan agency

JOIN THE MAYNARD STREET MILITIA:

earn To Use the Deadly 'Biting Barb

Do you believe in fighting fire with ,ire? Or in just plain fighting?
If so, The Daily is the place for you. Believing that sticks and
stones may break our bones, we've organized our own militia, the
Just-a-Mjnnitemen, to counter the heavy-handed tactics of our num-
erous enemies (they, in turn, began their offensive when they dis-
covered that names will sometimes hurt them).
The experience will do you a world of good. Where else could you
learn to hurl such ultimate weapons of defense as the Biting Barb,
the Insidious Innuendo; and the Terrible Truth? And where else can
you find a nickel Coke machine- enabling you to make your own
Molotov Cocktails at five cents a shot?
And later on, on that glorious day when Washington calls upon
you to do your part for God, Mother and' South Viet Nam, you'll be
eternally grateful for your Daily combat training.
Join the editorial staff and you'll be able. to wow your GI buddies
by telling them how you mowed down 10 administrators with one
editorial. And you'll be the first in your platoon to have had his
name in print as something other than a casualty.
If you join the business staff, you'll be schooled in the use of
guerrilla methods to round up advertisers. You'll learn the strategic
1subtleties of deploying, in the dead of night, a regiment of paper-

leet tenants or buyers if he owns
five or more housing units.
One of the amendments would
have extended the law's coverage
to include rooming houses ('build-
ins whose rooms have no kitch-
ens), provided the owner of the
building or his family did not live
there, and rooming houses with
four or more rooms even if the
owner did occupy the premises.
At present, the ordinance covers
only blocs of five or more housing
units (dwelling, units which have
kitchens), regardless of where the
owner lives. Rooming houses are
iiot mentioned in the law.
The other amendment would
have prohibited discrimination in
the sale or rental of commercial
space.
T h e amendments' opponents
said the main reason for their
negative votes was a May ruling
by Municipal Court Judge Francis
O'Brien that the ordinance is un-
constitutional. They said the city
should not act on the ordinance
while its validity is in question.
The ruling is currently being ap-
pealed by the city.
The view opposes that of City
