"This isn't policy cast in bron-
ze-that's what everybody's thinking,"
said Finn. He said some loft owners are
under the false impression that the
policy has already taken effect.
THE STUDENT-composed Univer-
sity Housing Council and six dorm
governments have endorsed a HPAG
resolution calling for modification of
four regulations in the Housing Office's
draft policy:
Written permission from the
building director before a loft is con-
structed or installed. HPAG members
would like to see the policy call for
notification of the building director
rather than permission. They say per-
mission should be denied only when
there is a safety hazard.
" A requirement that residents sign a
written agreement permitting room in-
spection "at any reasonable time to
determine conformity to the policy."
This provision needs modification to
protect students' rights to privacy, ac-
cording to HPAG members.,They say
"reasonable ' time'' must be
defined-such as three weeks after oc-
cupancy in the fall and within three
weeks into the winter term.
" Residents must remove their lofts
upon lease expiration. HPAG members
approve this provision only if the rooms
are to be used for summer conferences

sfear 'C
or if the next year's lessees are not
owners of the loft-otherwise, they
claim, removal would be an incon-
venience. To insure against loft aban-
donment at the end of the year, HPAG
recommends that a security deposit be
required of each room having a loft,
which would be refunded upon removal
or sale of the loft at the end of the year.
" No responsibility for the Housing
Office to store lofts. HPAG members
say residents sh6uld be allowed to store
lofts in their dorms if room permits.
Other provisions of the draft
policy-which HPAG consider
* installation of additional electrical
apparatus isn't permitted;
e all materials used must have a
combustibility rating equal to or great-
er than that of a Douglas fir;.
- covering for loft floors must have a
combustibility rating at least equal to
that of a top-rated grade of wool car-
* mattresses used on lofts must be
fire-resistant dense polyfoam;
- loft decorations must carry the
flame rating or greater as the above
* any room containing a loft must
have a battery-operated smoke detec-
tor alarm system, which the Housing
Office will rent for six dollars per year;


* the loft owner is responsible for any
liability, loss, damage, or injury in-
curred resulting from the loft;
* the owner must promptly disman-
tle the loft in the event of painting or
other major room repairs by the
* materials used to construct the loft
may not be connected to the building
"Some things in the policy are

necessary and some are unnecessary,"
said Alice Lloyd loft-owner Steve
Krumpoch. "But it seems the Univer-
sity is trying to get rid of lofts."
Tod Hanson, building director at the
University's loft metropolis-Bur-
sley-said he has received 45 letters
from residents protesting against the
proposed policy. "A policy on lofts
should be fair and equitable," he said.
"We've got to be careful."

Only those magic passes to the
spectacle of the season - the
University of Michigan/Ohio State
Big Ten championship match.
Around town, buyers from, as far
away as Columbus, Ohio are paying
upwards of $80 for two tickets,
according to more than one profes-
sional ticket entrepreneur.
"I'M SELLING to Columbus, I'm
selling to Detroit, I'm selling to the
suburbs," says one such profiteer,
who calls himself Stan. "The other
day I got a letter with $8 postage on
it. It was hand-delivered. Four to-
gether, and he paid $50 apiece. I sent
him back his tickets special deliv-
"After today," says Stan, "I'm not
going to risk the tickets not getting
there." Instead, he will meet his
out-of-town customers Saturday be-
fore the game. The Ann Arborites,
Stan says, he will "meet around
According to Stan, tickets in Co-
lumbus are going for from '$130 to
$150 a pair.
"IT'S A little bit late now," he con-
cedes. "People in Columbus who are
going to the game bought their
tickets a month ago."
He isn't worried, though, about the
25 he still has to sell before Satur-
day's opening kickoff. "I've been
working all the games, so I've got
sort of a clientele."
Not everyone is as willing as Stan's
customers to part with so much for so
little. "We were looking for tickets,
but we didn't want to pay $100," says
one Hamtramck woman. Since she
ran an ad in The Daily, she's had

lick Ibucks
"over 100 phone calls," all of them
offering tickets for somewhere in the
three-figure bracket.
"NO WAY," she says. "That's
ridiculous for a football game."
One Columbus couple advertised
for tickets and got a response from
an Ann Arbor scalper who demanded
"a hundred dollars apiece for six
tickets --$600!"
And the big game carpetbaggers
can breathe relatively easily during
their scalping field-day - local
police have adopted a "hands-off"
"IF WE get involved, we'd have to
see the transaction taking place,"
says Ann Arbor police chief Walter
Krasny. "We're not really looking at
it very carefully. It's not our top pri-
Nor are the men in blue planning
any crackdown on the last-minute
scalpers who will no doubt be out in
droves to prey on game-goers Satur-
day morning. "If we see someone
flashing 15, 20 tickets we'd obviously
take a look at him," Krasny said.

In addition, stadium concession-
aires have been complaining for a
long time about the city's toleration
of guerrilla snack-peddlers.
"We get no exemptions and we pay
a sales tax," said an irate spokes-
man for the Cub Scout-Explorers'
