The first U. S. National Student
Association cross-regional assem-
bly will be held at the University
Nov. 13-15.
Approximately 150 delegates
from the 80 member schools in the
Michigan and Ohio-Indiana re-
gions will meet together in a series
of discussion groups and plenary
sessions to discuss mutual prob-
lems and plans.
Normally, each region holds a
conference in the spring and in
the fall. This year the two regions
decided, for the first time, to hold
a joint assembly instead of a fall
regional conference.
This meeting will definitely be
of benefit to the University, John
Feldkamp, '61, conference chair-
man, said.
To Talk to Others .
The University will have the
opportunity to talk to more
schools of its own size such as
Notre Dame and Indiana univer-
sities. Wayne State University is
the 'only other large university in
the Michigan region which is a
member of USNSA, Michigan
State University only having
recently joined the association.
Registration will begin on Fri-
day and at 9 p.m. Saturday the
Keynote address will be given by
Curt Gans, USNSA national af-
fairs vice-president and a former.
editor of the North Carolina Daily
List Sections
Discussion groups will be di-
vided into four sections for Satur-
day afternoon. These will be: Stu-
dent Government, Educational
Affairs, International Affairs and
Student Body Presidents.
An evening banquet will be held
in the Michigan Union.
Following the closing on Sunday
morning, the Michigan region will
hold a special meeting to discuss
the role of the student in the
financial crisis.
Plenary sessions are open to all
interested persons and will be held
in Aud. A, Angell Hall.
The cross-regional assembly can
make recommendation to the Na-
tioial Congress of USNSA and
can pass regional resolutions in
the plenary sessions.

Mayor Creal Defends Policy

Mayor <Cecil 0. Creal has deniedv
charges made by Councilman
Lloyd M. Ives at Monday night's
Council meeting.,
Ives charged that persons con-
cerned with the Citizen's Commit-
tee on Voluntary Rehabilitation
have been issuing instructions for
building repair, making inspec-
tions, and giving the impression
they had authority from the city.
The committee has no such
authority, Creal said.
The Council authorized inves-
tigation of the charges.
Creal said yesterday that Ives'
charges were "a political football:"
J. Gordon McDonald, general
chairman of the citizens' commit-
tee, sponsored by Creal as an al-
ternative to the urban renewal
plan, termed them "political tor-

"If it will disclose some fradu-,

will serve some purpose," he said.
"But if it's done to embarass the
mayor, then he (Ives) is off base.""
"We were gathering informa-.
tion; we weren't telling anyone to
do a thing," he added.
Ives had described two incidents

Creal said.

Claos Iatio Boolets Available

With over 2,000 courses offered
in the literary college, there should
be some method of letting the
student know "what, he's getting
in for". when he enrolls in a class,
Stanley Levy, Grad., believes.,
To meet this need, the college
has devfsed a course description

selors' offices .and in the Under-
graduate Library.
But not enough people "know
it exists" to be able to suggest
revision in future editions, Levy,
administrative assistant to literary
college associate dean James Rob-
ertson, asserted:
"As much as the booklets are
around and available, a. great
number of student are not widely
enough aware of their egistence to
use them," he said.
"And it is difficult to revise the
booklets until we can devise some
method of determining student
Booklet Describes"
The booklet describes the gen-
eral objectives of many courses in
the literary college, including out-
lines on subject natter, prepara-
tion required, and Information on
method of instruction.
"The announcement committee
gathered the information on these
courses by writing letters to the
chairman of each department ask-
ing for brief summaries on three
types of courses offered in their

courses, classes elected ,to fulfill,
distribution requirements, and
other courses popular among stu-
dents not concentrating in that
department," Levy, continued.
Instructors Compile
The Information was- compiled
by the major instructors in many
of the three types of courses.
"The booklet is lacking in some
respects," he said. "Some people
have even questioned the neces-
sity of having such a. booklet, but
it is designed to serve as an ex-
pansion on the literary college

McDonald said that one of the
examples cited by Ives as evidence
of improper committee action
"was not even on our list of the 24
substandard houses."
Supports MacDonald
Virgil Huey, voluntary commit-
tee member assigned to the area

Replies were not received from
instructors of some very popular

Levy said.
