Head of Model
Cities retained
By JIM O'BRIEN
City Council yesterday unanimously approved a mea-
sure to retain Herbert Wingo as director of the Model Cities
program, and to form a committee to delineate his and the
program's policy board's responsibilities.
The decision came in response to a recommendation for
Wingo's dismissal, submitted to Council by the policy board.
Ezra Rowry, the board's chairman, attributed the re-
commendation to "irresponsibilities and negligence . . .
insubordination." The Board's most important concern,
Rowry stated, was Wingo's failure to submit the program's
yearly plan of action to the
Department of Housing and
Urban Development on Soledad
time.
Mayor Robert Harris com-
mented that the allegations
"consist of Wingo's resistance to
efforts by the Board to usurp
the power of the director."

BLACK STUDENTS CENTER:
Trotter House gutted b ire
damage curtails activities

By NANCY ROSENBAUM
A center for black students
was seriously damaged last Sun-
day evening by a severe fire.
The . University-owned Trotter
House, located at the corner of
East University Ave. and South
University Ave., was converted
into a black student center last
fall. Under the direction of Dr.
Charles Kidd, assistant vice-
president for student services,
the house was used to accom-
modate meetings, lectures, and
social events. It also provided
counseling facilities and auxil-
iary housing for black students.
The fire was discovered at ap-
proximately 7:10 p.m. by stu-
dents -finishing an informal Sun-
day dinner. The students smel-
led smoke in the basement, and
the building was evacuated im-
mediately. An attempt to ex-
tinguish the blaze with fire ex-
tinguishers proved unsuccessful.
A defective gas water heater
in the basement is believed to
have caused the fire, " which
spread quickly upward through
the rest of the house. Estimat-
ed to be about 65 years old, the
house had been constructed with-
out fire stops, making it ex-
tremely difficult to contain the
blaze. The flames spread up
through the rafters and became
trapped in the attic.

About 17 firemen with 5 pires
of equipment, supervised by As-
sistant Fire Chief Fred Schmid,
extinguished the fire, which
blazed for about an hour and a
half. Two firemen were treated
for excessive smoke inhalotion
and another incurred a hind in-

Jury.
Acquired by the University in
1921, the 15 room, three-story
house was formerly used as a
home economics building for the
University high school and later
became a center for urban edu-
cation.

Indians call

By MARCIA ZOSLAW
In a Diag scene last month, 20
juniors stood bowed in a line and
allowed themselves to be doused
with red brick dust. The new
"redskins" were then duly in-
itiated into the Michigamua hon-
orary society.
Although this ceremony has in
the past been viewed as one of
the campus rites of spring, this
year it provoked a civil rights
suit. A local Indian group filed a
complaint Monday with the Mich-
igan Civil Rights Commission,
