ing academic, counseling, and
living problems for minority
groups on campus. When the
Regents rejected the housing
proposal they authorized such
-an investigation.
According to committee mem-
ber Charles Kidd. assistant vice
president for student services,
the group has been developing
"skeletonized views" for a viable
alternative to the rejected hous-
ing proposal. "Hopefully, those
of us on the committee are going
to make sure that this is Cot
just a procrastinating restudy of
the problem," said Georgia Wil-
liams, another committee mem-
ber, assistant director of special
programs for University housing.
Williams declared that the
problem of minority adjustment
on campus has been studied be-
fore and that the Afro-American
housing proposal was created in
response to needs already in-
dicated. "I think you have black
students feeling that the Re-
gents didn't act in good faith,"
she said yesterday and called
complaint procedure "an appro-
priate step to take." She said
that a court decision might set
a precedent for minority student
housing with the Department of
Housing and Urban Develop-
ment.
University legal advisor Rod-
erick Daane said previously that
the University will make no re-
sponse to the complaint until
confronted by the Commission
and commented that "the com-
mission's procedure is even slow-
er than the court's."
However, Gill asserted that
the Commission had already
-'ompleted the bulk of its inves-
tigations when it decided to en-
dorse the proposal during earlier
discussion on the issue.
Besides probable court action,
Gill said there will be continued
demonstrations by blacks such
as the disruption at the last
Regents' meeting to dramatize
the question. Since he became
active on the proposal, Gill
charges he has been harassed by
the University for everything
from parking tickets to my
classes."
Asked his opinion on the up-
coming suit, Regent James
Waters (D-Muskegon), who had
voted in favor of the proposal,
said the plaintiffs "have no
legal or constitutional grounds"
for calling the decision racist
since the proposal was rejected
on the grounds of segregation.
Regent Robert Neederlander
(D-Detroit) said yesterday that
there was "no feasible way of
approving the proposals since
bving segregation would vio-
late the laws of Michigan."

The new arrangement came
about because the state ordered

This summer
you can afford to
go to America.
Introducing the Hostel Plan
for students who fly American.

Go European without leaving
the country. Fly with us. And stay
with us too. For only $4 to $8 a night.
In student kinds of places. At student
kinds of prices. With your kind of
people: students. The kids in Europe
have been doing it for years.
Now you can do it here on the
American Airlines Hostel Plan. For
students who fly (naturally) American
Airlines. If you're headed to any of
our six biggest east and west coast
cities, you'll find clean, conveniently
located spots to hang your hat. At a
cost that won't hang you up. r
The fun is that you'll find them at
some of the largest universities in
America. In Boston, Washington,
D.C., San Francisco, Los Angeles,

San Diego, and New York City.
You'll get fresh linens when you
check in. A comfortable double
room. And, depending on the school,
air conditioning, pools, tennis courts,
lounges. Movies, concerts, theater,
whatever's happening on campus.
To help you get around, we'll fly
your bike whenever you fly for just
$7. Or tell you where to rent a Ford
Pinto for only $5 a day, 5ti a mile (if
you're over 21).
This summer, get a Youth Fare
card if you're-under 22 and fly for less
with American Airlines. To go all the
way and stay for less too, call an
American Airlines reservations
office. And ask about the universities
on the Hostel Plan.
