Housing Director John Feldkamp.
"People are sensitive about the
issue of segregation."
"We felt this program was so
good because it allowed individuals
committed to an inter-racial ex-
perience to live together," he add-
ed. "We don't have a good sub-
stitute that would be the same as
a residential experience."
Feldkamp said that the housing
office will work in areas of choos-

ing mechanisms to reach students,
including "identifying areas for

In regard to substitute programs
Feldkamp said, "A real problem
with alternatives is capturing the

of the Riopelle Meat Packing Co.
Riopelle, which was servicing 16
fraternities and sororities on cam-
pus, had been on a probationary
status with the Buyer's Associa-

1969 conviction of Riopelle for

packages of ground beef from
Riopelle had shown that an illegal

additive was being used. This addi-
tive was to retain the water in the
meat fat, and prevent the meat
from cooking properly.
There had also been several stu-
dent complaints against Riopelle
the last few months, including
those of unsatisfactory service and
charges of price manipulation.
The ground beef tested by the
Agriculture Dept. also had .a high-

for this offense, however.
If convicted of this misdemean-

Boorstin, since 1969, has been

ington, D.C.
A well-known and prize-winning
author, he has written numerous
books on American history and
politics, and is currently complet-
ing "The Americans," a three-
volume reinterpretation of this
country's history and institutions.
The first two volumes in the
series were "The Colonial Exper-
ience," completed in 1959, and
"The National Experience," com-
pleted in 1966.
Boorstin has served as a gov-!
ernment attorney in Washington

more, the University of Chicago
the University of Rome, Kyoto
University, the University ofC
Puerto Rico, the Sorbonne and
Cambridge University.
He has served as editor of the
"Chicago History of American
Civilization" and "An American
Primer." Among his other books
are "The Landmark of History of
the American People," "The Im-,
age: a Guide to Pseudo-Events in

America," America and the Image
of Europe," "The Genius of Amer-
ican Politics," "The Lost World of
Thomas Jefferson" and "The
Mysterious Science of the Law."
The Cook Lectures were estab-
lished by the late William Cook
who graduated from the U-M Law
School in 1882.
Morris hit
by charges
(Continued from Page 1)
During the next meeting of the
class, according to Morris, disrup-
tion occured when several BAM
strikers appeared in the classroom.
When they continued on the third
day of class, he filed charges
against two BAM supporters.
In reply to the charge that he
prosecuted through the Univer-
sity's judicial system, Morris said
he did not choose where the stu-
dents' case would be heard.
One of the students was found
guilty of class disruption by the
business school judiciary, and the
other's case was dropped.
The statement attacking Mor-
ris, which was signed by the Black
Student Union steering commit-
tee, the Black Law Student Alli-
ance and 16 individuals, further
alleges that Morris "insulted our
intelligence by first denying such
prosecution," only to later admit
to "filing charges" but doing no
actual "prosecution."
