Eair Housing Ordinance Stirs Ann Arbor

-Robert B. Ellery
CROWDED CHAMBERS-Many Ann Arborites and University students jammed City Council cham-
bers high in the new City Hall Monday evening to witness the final action by council on the pro-'
posed fair hqusing ordinance for the City of Ann Arbor. After some lengthy discussion the measure
was enacted by a vote of 7-4, with two Democrats and two Republicans opposing it.

able for inspection when, in fact.
It is so available, because of the
race, color, religion, national origin
or ancestry of such person.
"No real'estate broker, real es-
tate salesman or real estate agent
shall fail to transmit to the owner
or other persons having the right
to sell or lease any housing unit,
any offer to purchase or rent the
same made by any person because
of the race, color, religion, nation-
al origin or ancestry of such per-
son."
Advertising
Also, no person selling or leas-
ing housing units can engage in
discriminatory advertising.
The amendments to the original
document offered at the council
meeting which were accepted are
as follows:
-To add a penalty of 10 days
in jail if a fine for conviction of
a violation is not paid;
-To make the penalty for wil-
full filing of a false complaint the
same as that for discriminatory
practice;
-To change injunctive relief
provision so that it would apply
to all accused persons not just
those who have been convicted of
an ordinance violation once.
Amendments offered which were
voted down are:
-To cover all housing except
rental of owner-occupied one and
two-family;
-To present a charter amend-
ment to voters to give council au-
thority to regulate sale and rental
of real property;
-To add coverage of rooming
houses with four or more units
whether owner lives there or not;
-To eliminate the provision
that forbids the wilful filing of a
false complaint;
,-To substitute the more com-
prehensive "clergymen's o r d i-
nance" for the council's ordinance;
--To have the ordinance take
effect 10 days after legal publica-
tion rather than Jan. 1,
-To have an advisory vote by
the public.
The ordinance evolved after a

Fund Gives
Student Aid
For College
By The Associated Press
LANSING-In, just under a year
of existence, the Michigan Higher
Education Assistance Authority
has already guaranteed over a half
million dollars in loans to college
students.
Michigan State Superintendent
of Public Instruction Lynn M.
Bartlett, chairman of the MHEAA,
calls the growth of the program
"phenomenal." Loans have more
than tripled in the last two and a
half months. The number of stu-
dents has leaped from 237 to 433.
MHEAA Executive Director John
Porter reports that ten additional
loan applications are processed
every day.
Operating on deposits supplied
by the state's colleges and univer-
sities, the authority has no fund
of its own. It has arranged with
some 77 banks across the state to
make loans to the students which
the authority supports. Loans are'
deferred as to payment until after
the student's graduation.:
"For every dollar that is placed
with the authority for its use in1
the loan program, we can guaran-
tee $10 in loans," Bartlett re-7
marks. .
The number of students partici-
pating is restricted to the extent
that loan funds can only be used
in direct proportion to the size of
the particular college or university
deposit. The University, with $50,-
000 on deposit, has the largest sin-
gle holding, and 14 other Michigan
institutions are also participating.
Bartlett notes that the author-
ity needs more "unrestricted mon-t
ey," that is, funds donated by pri-
vate sources which could be usedI
at any state college or university.
Thus far only $1000 comes under"
the unrestricted category.

three-year history of discussion,
deliberation and demonstrations.
Fair housing draft ordinances were
presented to council in 1960 and
1962. but wereoreferred back to
Human Relations Commission for
more study. Public hearings were
held in June, 1962.
However, deliberations leading to
the adoption of an ordinance did
not begin until last March 11 when
council passed a joint council-
HRC committee draft ordinance.
The first version did not contain
provisions for coverage of individ-
uals, advertising and real estate
brokers. Its enforcement provisions
were general, calling for city pros-
ecution after conciliatory efforts
fail.
Only tenants living in the same
building as the owner were ex-
empted from coverage in this
draft.
