"Yes," laughs Bataluco, "our
girls get some very personal
requests from lonely men."
THE SERVICE also gets some
rather frightening calls, such
as bomb and suicide threats.
The operators are quick to point
out that whatever the call, "if
they're in trouble, we're going
to help them, or at least we're
going to try."
Calls for help have come in
from as far away as Florida,
and there have been other calls
twhich were also not run-of-the-

CROW CLAIMED there is a
"hell of a lot of pressure" on
Native Americans at the Uni-
versity to conform with white
values, and they often have a
hard time adjusting to student
life for that reason.
But the average Native Amer-
ican here "doesn't want to con-
form, he's not here to conform,"
"He's here to learn the kind
of tools he can use to help his
people," he continued, adding,
"We're here to learn how to
help our way of life survive.
According to Crow, Concan-
non and others, the history of
the University's treatment of
Native Americans has been
marked by negligence and con-
In February of 1975, Housing
Director John Feldkamp prom-
ised the students a cultural cen-
witnesses," Crow said. But min-
utes after the promise was
made, Feldkamp called up and
withdrew it. "He said he wasn't
authorized to do such a thing,"
FELDKAMP remembers the
promise and the subsequent call.
"But when I said yes," he main-
tained, "I was under the im-
pression that this was a sort of
lounge. When I found out they
wanted their own building, I
had to tell them it was out of
The Indians were shunted
from person to person after,
that, Crow recalled. "We dem-
onstrated on Fleming's lawn
and at a meeting of the Board
of Regents; we held a sit-in at
the Student Activities Building."
At first the University offered
them a house on Wilmont St.
for a nominal rent. But later,
as plans were being made, the
Native Americans were inform-
ed the rent would be over $200,
a month, and that the Univer-
sity would refuse to recognize
the house as a cultural center
"THIS IS Indian land, you
know," said Crow. "This Uni -
versity is built with money from:
the sale of Indian land. And
here are these whites, these
foreigners, telling us ,We have
no room here for you Injuns.' "
History backs up Crow's re-f
marks. In 1817, Territorial Gov-
ernor Lewis Cass signed the
Fort Meigs Treaty, in which the
three main tribes of Michigan
Indians donated 4,000 acres of;
land to the then young Univer-
sity. The land was given with
the written understanding that
Indian children would be guar-
anteed an education.I
Last year there was a Native I
American Advocate, albeit a
part-time one. This year the
post is vacant.
"What we're asking isn't just
goad for Indian people," Crow
said. "It's good for everybody.
Racism, oppression and negli-
gence touch us all."

We are concerned about the living conditions in Ann Arbor.
That is why we are submitting this letter.
We have been in Ann Arbor for ten years and have experienced
inflation as has everyone else. During this time, our services to our
residents have increased, and we are still trying to do our best.
When you are spending hundreds of dollars, you want to be sure you
are getting your moneysworth. At UNIVERSITY TOWERS APARTMENTS we know our
tenants are getting services equivalent to every penny spent.
Even though our tenants are satisfied, there is still room for
improvement. That is why we have reduced our summer rates. ALSO, OUR
RATES FOR THIS COMING FALL/WINTER 1976/77 RENTAL SEASON WILL REMAIN THE
SAME AS 'IHIS PAST YEAR. That is a statement few other landlords can claim.
No other landlord can offer these services: furnished apartments, weekly
maid service, a heated swimming pool, a laundromat, 24 hour security,
movies and parties that are free to all residents - all that and more
within a three minute walk to the Diag.
We want your college experience to be enjoyable and memorable. You
should not have to worry about any problems that might occur while living
in an apartment - that is our business.
So, if you are looking for an apartment next year, we are located at
the corner of South University and South Forest. We are not afraid to show
you what we have to offer.
