Dorm dilemma
THE STUDENT housing fiasco
reached mammoth propor-
tions last week as angry losers
in the dormitory room lottery
threatened to serve the Univer-
sity with three court injunctions
questioning the fairness of the
random selection process.
Meanwhile, The Daily disclos-
ed that the University is on the
verge of losing a $5.6 million
loan designated for additional
student housing - which has
been available for four years -
simply because the Housing Of-
fice has made no arrangements
to sign a construction contract.
The Department of Housing
and Urban Development (HUD),
which offered the low-interest
loan, has extended the accept-1
ance deadline several times -nd
the final deadline is now set
at June 30.
1 TNIVERSITY Housing Direct-'

"there's no way we can get a
shovel in the ground by June
30". Consequently, HUD ?ir -j
formed Feldkamp that the loan
would still be available as long
as a future construction date.
was agreed upon by June 30.
Although it has been obvious
for quite sometime that the Uni-
versity needs additional student
housing, the matter has been
largely ignored by the povers-
that-be.sEach year, several do,-
en freshmen are forced to lyve
in the Bell Tower Hotel w h i 1 e
awaiting openings in the dorm-
itories - which often never sur-
face.
According to Feldkamp, it is
"the University's fear of grow-
ing" which has repeatedly de-
layed the acquisition of the ear-
marked HUD monies. Jo>hn
Terranela, Detroit HUD repre-
sentative, commented, "As I re-
call, they (the admiiistration)
have beenaplaying around with
this for years."

mitted that "the possie)lity (of
a tuition hike) cannot be uiled
out." According to University
officials, an anticipated six per
cent cut in state appropriations
this year may result in both in-
creased student fees and em-
ploye layoffs.
Although no one has flatly prc-
dicted that tuition will be hiked,
Rhodes has stated that if tne
University is unable to com up
with a satisfactory salary pro-
gram, fee increases and layoffs
are the only feasible alterna-
tives.
M EANWHILE, the University
clericals, which recently
organized with the Unite I Auto
Workers, are threatening to go
out on strike for increased wag-
es, putting even more economic
pressure on the administration.
However, the clericals' chance
for success doesn't appear
strong. Although the battle lead-
ing to their unionization I a s t
fall was long-winded and emo-
tional, apathy appears to have
set in and a meeting to an-
nounce next month's strike vote
only drew a handful of the un-
ions members.
Even assuming that the cler-

icals overwhelmingly decided to
go out on strike, the Univer-
sity will probably tate the same
approach to their eco;,o'imic de-
mands as it did with zhe teach-
ing assistants - sympathizing
with their situation. bLt 'eing
them the money aoes nt e'st.
'Dum-dums' banned
POLICE CHIEF Walter Kras-
ny and the Human Rights
Party (HRP) have rarely found
themselves in agreement on ary
controversial issue. However, in
an unexpected move last Mon-
day, Krasny announced to City
Council that municipal police
would no longer carry the much-
maligned "dum-dum" bullet af-
ter HRP had announced they
were proposing a ordlnance to
ban the hollow point projectiles.
The use of "dum-dum" bul-
lets was prohibited by the 1949
Geneva Convention because Tney
cause much greater bodily dam-
age than standard ammuniti:an.
However, various police forces
throughout the country use rhem
because they stay planted in the
target rather than leaving the
body and ricocheting towards
another person.
Despite Krasny's announce-
ment and a supporting state-
ment by the city's police asso-
ciation, however, council Re-
publicans still refused to pass
the HRP ordinance, which fell
to a predictable 6-5 defeat.

fund revenue.
CONSEQUENTLY, if the char-
ter amendment were inter-
preted in this manner, $565,000
would have to be allocated to
child care services.
With this latest revelation, it
is unclear how much money
will be allocated to day care
if the proposal passes. No mat-
ter which of the two sums is
included in the budget, the de-
cision would be open to a court
challenge either by City Coun-
cil or an individual.
HRP's only defense of the pro-
posal's ambigious nature is that
it is "implicit" that only general
fund revenue is meant. How-
ever, HRP Councilwoman Kathy
Kozachenko believes that the
extra $250,000 created by the
clerical error "is still a reason-
able figure" for day care.
Other than the disclosure con-
cerning the day care issue, it
was a fairly quiet week on the
election front. Liz Taylor's blast
at the Graduate Employes' Or-
ganization was the only notable
broadside at a candidate's night
last Thursday.
The First Ward Democratic
candidate, who. supported the
strike for a week by not report-
ing for work at the University's
Institute of Social Research,
said the union's tactics were
both "inane" and "immature,"
"Anyone who has any experi-
ence in labor organizing would
have told them their tactics
were half-assed. The people who
knew what they were doing
were viewed as conservatives
and were forced out due to in-
ternal politicking."

tions to the housing problem
have been proposed, including
leasing of the Ann Arbor lInn
and renting the surplus space at
Eastern Michigan University.:
However, such options are still
very much up in the air.
Although the Board of Re-
gents Friday called on the ad-
ministration to make a concert-
ed effort to find addi-ional Uni-
versity housing, Feldkamp,
merely declared "The studentsI
are unwise to wait around and
think the Regents are goin; to
take care of them. They've got
to start exploring off-canpus
housing."
Tuition hints
Q TUDENTS MAY be forced to
fork over an even larger
sum for tuition next fall than,
they expected. Although sum-
mer tuition fees at :le Univer-j
sity's Dearborn campus have
been decreased over ?2 per cent,
it appears almost e taln local
students will be paying more
for their education next year.
