.Summer in Review
(EDITOR'S NOTE: The following story represents a summary of key news
events that occurred during the summer session.)
Personnel Director
The appointment of a housing director, a first reading passage of
a revised fair housing ordinance and the release of a general guide for
University expansion highlighted news for students during the summer
Eugene Haun, formerly associate dean of students at Cornell
University, was appointed director of University residences. Filling a
position vacant for a year, he took over residence hall operations on
Aug. 5.
Haun may teach English after his first year, if his OSA duties per-
it. He will directly deal with only residence halls, although the orig-
il OSA plan looked toward one director for all housing.
Hale Leaves
Assistant Director of Housing John Hale resigned his position to
come director of residences at the University of Delaware. Hale's
signation becomes effective Sunday.
The City Council passed on first reading a revised fair housing
ide, which requires a second passage next month before it becomes
Mn. The revised proposal cuts federally insured housing and
oming units from coverage. Discrimination by real estate brokers

New Method
Complaints will be handled in
new way in that they will be
iled with the Human Relations
commission. If conciliation cannot
0e reached to eliminate discrimi-
nation, the matter will be turned
over to city attorneys.
They shall' institute a misde-
meanor proceeding in Municipal.
Court, unless they determine that
the proceedings cannot be lawfully
sustained. This discretion was ab-
sent in the earlier ordinance.
The revised ordinance also states
that injunctive relief can only be
used against persons who have
been previously guilty of discrim-
inating. The possible 90 day prison
,sentence has also been dropped
from the new proposal.
January Date Set
If the revised ordinance passes
its second reading, it will go into
affect next January 1. The penalty
3rovision ($100 fine) would not be
ictivated until July 1 in order to
avoid injuring people ignorant of
the law.

To Attempt
City Editor
Rep. Richard A. Guzowski (D-
Detroit) intends to introduce legis-
lation next spring to restrict the
number of out-of-state students
attending Michigan universities.
"When universities refuse in-
statestudents because of lack of
facilities, we are not living up to
our primary obligation to the
State of Michigan," he explained
in an interview Tuesday.
Guzowski reasons that \there
would be sufficient educational
facilities to absorb the sharply-
increasing number of Michigan
applicants-if enough foreign and
out-of-state students are turned
away. (The non-Michigan per-
centage at the University and sev-
eral other state institutions is
around one third.)
No Room
"A lot of applicants in my dis-
trict can't get in because of lack
of room," he said. If more Michi-
gan residents could be college-
educated, much of Detroit's un-
employment and welfare problems
could be eased with a higher-
skilled labor market, he added.
The legislator issued figures
claiming that non-Michigan stu-
dents cost the state $17.8 million
a year-above and beyond tuition
receipts. The figure he gave for
the University alone was $10.7
"I'm not against these students
in and of themselves," he said.
"Other states just don't face up to
their own edcational responsibili-
ties: '
Bucks History
Similar proposals for such an
enrollment restriction have been
introduced many times during re-
cent years in the Legislature, and
all have failed.
But Guzowski claims support
from at least six legislators al-
ready-"including other Wayne
County Democrats"--for formal,
binding legislation. "This will
probably be the year the legislators
do something about the situation,"
He plans to bring his proposal
up when universities seek their
1964-65 appropriations next year.
Visits WSU
Guzowski gained some attention
late in the summer when he show-
ed up unannounced in a Wayne
State University seminar on goals
and responsibilities of citizenship.
He reportedly berated one WSU
student who criticized the House
Un-American Activities Commit-
tee, labelled opponents of HUAC
as Communist and otherwise par-
ticipated in the discussion.
Last spring, in his first term as
a legislator,bGuzowski made a
spectacular but unsuccessful at-
tempt to amend the state con-
stitution to ban Communist speak-
ers from college campuses,

to -other Midwestern schools, Prof.
E. Wendell Hewson of the engi-
neering college explained in an in-
Prof. Hewson, a meteorologist, is
the University representative to
the CIC program, which includes
all the Big Ten schools and the
University of Chicago.
Travel Opportunities
A major feature of the coopera-
tive program is the opportunity for
graduate students to travel from
university to university in order to
take advantage of facilities unique
to each.
Prof. Hewson indicated that the
University's meteorology a n d
oceanography departments and the
Medical School's work in allergies.
will be of great special interest to
people studying bioclimatology at
other schools.
He predicted that although few-
er thany10 University students will
probably participate in the pro-
gram this year, it will expand to
include about 20 students in the
Research Center
The cooperative effort may make
the Midwest the center of research
on weather influences, Prof. Hew-
son said.
"'he field of biometeorology has
been relatively neglected in the
past because of the complexity of
the problems and the fact that the;
skills and experience of a number
of diverse disciplines are needed'
to reach valid conclusions," he
"The highly specialized capabili-
ties needed generally are not found
in any one university. But with a
wide variety of competence to be
found in the 11 universities of the
CIC, a first-class graduate educa-
tion program is being established."
The program, which is being fi-
nanced for three years by a $23 8,-
000 grant from the division of air'
pollution of the United States Pub-
lic Health Service, is under the di-
rection of Prof. Frederick Sargent
of the University of Illinois.
He explained that the program
would allow selected graduate
students in such fields as meteo-
rology, physiology, geography and
zoology to enrich their studies
through contact with many of the
Midwest's top scientists.J
Prof. Sargent cited the case of
a student who wants to combine
experience in meterology and bio-
logy and specialize in the area of
bioclimatology of farm animals.
"Since this training cannot be'
obtained on a single campus, the
student could take his meteorology
and biology at Wisconsin or Mich-
igan, and then move to Purdue to4
complete his education with work
in bioclimatology of farm animals."

PROTESTS CONTINUE-Ann Arbor's City Hall has been the scene of much picketing over the past
few months. While most of the demonstrations have been with regard to the fair housing ordinance,
the above is a general "freedom rally" sponsored by the Ann Arbor Friends of the Student Non-Vio-
lent Coordinating Committee. It was held Monday. Story on Page 5.5

Those groups most strongly in favor of a fair housing code were
highly dissatisfied with the first reading of the ordinance. City Demo-
crats have also indicated a desire for adoption of a more stringent
Protest marches and City Council sit-ins also began after passage
of the first draft.
A Central Campus plan envisioning building complexes and walk-
ways was created as a general guide for University expansion.
Central Area--Five Zones'
The plan divides the Central Campus area into a central "quad"
area with five sub-campus zones-three academic ones, one entertain-
ment and one special zone.
Entertainment would center near Hill Aud., academic areas near
the Dental Bldg., Physics-Astronomy Bldg. and the Law Quadrangle
and the special zone around the Union and Administration Bldg.
Walkways are stressed as a major method of lending order and
vitality to the University. The scheme will serve as a background for,
alternative plans of growth and for analyzing Central Campus physical

The plan also outlines major ways of routing traffic with a ring-
road around Central Campus and three major pedestrian walkways as

A national organization of lead-
ing sociologists urged Congress
Monday to pass the civil rights
laws they are now considering.
The Society for the Study of
Social Problems-a division of the
American Sociological Association

nual meeting in Los Angeles this
week. It was sent to President
John F. Kennedy and members of

of the sociology department, noted

The resolution stated, "The de-
nial of full rights to Negroes and
other groups is America's most
serious social problem .. . In our
estimation, Congressional action
may determine whether peaceful
progress or dislocation and strife
will be the fate of America."
Prof. Peter I. Rose of Smith
College, chairman of an inter-
group relations committee, urged
that members be ready to send a
delegation to testify in support of
the bill before Congress.

Deep Cut in NASA Budget,
Leaves U' Research Intact
University research sponsored by the National Aeronautics and
Space Administration will not be affected by a deep Congressional
cut in NASA's budget request.
Congress passed a $5.35 billion appropriation for NASA Wednes-
day, $1.7 million more than last year, but $362 million less than
President John F. Kennedy requested.
Director of Research Administration Robert E. Burroughs said
that he could not be sure of the total effect until he studied the
appropriation more carefully, but
that it should be slight.
"I understand the cuts were in
the program area. Since the Uni-
versity is in the scientific area, it
is not involved in these changes,"
.he explained.
The cut will not affect the NASA
Bldg. now nearing construction on
North Campus, Burroughs said, as
funds for it will come from last
years appropriation.
"When any agency has a reduc-
tion in its appropriation, it tends
to become more cautious and
things may be tighter than usual.
But as long as the University
maintains the high quality of its
proposals, it should do all right,"
Burroughs declared.
T h e appropriation contained
$3.9 million for a NASA electronics
research center in the Boston area.:
. The University had unsuccessfully
bid for the controversial projects
when some objections to the Bos-
ton site became known.
The final appropriation was $160.

In addition, USSPA delegatesl
stressed the wisdom of limiting the
number of such investigations to a

Six 'Flaws' of Bill
Before Open Hearing
Police arrested 12 sit-in demon-
strators early Wednesday morning
protesting city council's failure to
adopt a strong fair housing ordi-
nance by refusing to leave the city
council chambers after a public
hearing on the ordinance.
The group arrested after mid-
night Tuesday - two hours after
the public hearing adjourned -
was arraigned befora acting Mu-
nicipal Judge Chandler A. Rogers
Wednesday. Trial was set for Sept.
11. All were released on $20 bonds.
Charged with loitering, the
demonstrators included: Jerry A.
Winter, Grad; Kenneth C. Vaitkus,
'65; Bererton Bissel, '62; Dallas
R. Hodgin of the University radia-
tion laboratory; Ann Holden of
the Institute of Social. Research;
Prof. Albert Cafagna of Wayne
State University.
More on List
Others included Walter H.
Blackwell, the group's spokesman;
Alex D. Hawkins, Charles L. Bet-
sey, Mrs. Rose Marie Hooper and
Mrs. Alice J. Arshack, all residents
of Ann Arbor.
Also arrested was Prof. Quini
McLoughlin of Eastern Michigan
University. He alone sought a jury
City Administrator Quy C. Lar-
com, Jr. pleaded with demonstrat-
ors to leave. "Your argument is
not with me or with the police
who are obliged to enforce the
law," he declared.
Larcom Acts
He let the demonstrators dis-
cuss the situation among them-
selves for an hour. Two of the
original 14 left.uHeureturned with
Deputy Police Chief Walter E.
Krasny and Asst. City Atty. S. J.
Elden. Larcom gave the demon-
strators 20 more minutes. Then
police took the names and address-
es of the group and sealed them in
the council chambers.
At the hearing which preceded
the sit-in, leaders of many of the
churches of Ann Arbor, as well as
a number of private citizens and
representatives from several local
organizations spoke for a strong
fair housing ordinance.
In the testimony given by Prof.
Albert Wheeler of the Medical
School, representative of the Ann
Arbor Branch of the National
Association for the Advancement
of Colored People, many of the
points that are being opposed in
the proposed ordinance were men-
tioned. Wheeler said that the
NAACP opposes the following spe-
cific provisions in the proposed
fair housing ordinance:
Arbitrary Exclusion
-The arbitrary exclusion of
one, two, three and four housing
units that are not part of a larger
complex owned by one person.
This provision legally specifies cir-'
cumstances under which the city'

tion can not be applied until an
individual has had a prior con-
viction of discrimination.
