The new dental building
Three new buildings
to open at 'U' this fall
Although the campus looks no different at first glance, three new
University structures are scheduled to open during the coining aca-
demic year.
For one accustomed to living in Ann Arbor's run-down rental
housing. the University's new dental building on North University St,
with its rows of fluorescent-lit offices and sparkling corridors, seems
like a reminder of the modern world that surrounds the campus.
The $18 million building, freshly painted and polished in antici-
pation of its full use fall term, has retained one touch of the old-the
familiar sounds of piped-in dentist's office music.

foreign aid payment

government last night after

A fight over the committee's
decision to curb $225 million
for Pakistan until it settles its
East Pakistani turmoil was
waiting in the wings.
The loud debate over with-
holding aid to Greece to try
to force the military govern-
ment back toward Democratic

rule was dominated by a shout-
ing exchange between R e p .
Wayne Hays, D-Ohio, and Rep.
James A. Burke, D-Mass., who
tried to restore the Greek

Classrooms in the building have
been used for two years, but this
fall, the entire facility will come
into use.
According to Robert Door, as-
sociate dean of the dental school,
the building will supply modern
teaching and research facilities,
while being flexible enough to
meet changes in curriculum over
the years.
The new facility boasts a large
closed-circuit color television sys-
tem, the only computer system
on campus devoted exclusively
for teaching uses and a lecture
hall with acoustics so perfect
that electronic sound systems are
not needed.
Two other large University
structures will be used for the
first time in upcoming months.
The Power Center for the Per-
forming Arts will. be dedicated
Oct. 5, while the Modern Lan-
guages Building will be ready for
use during the winter term.
The Power Center, built with
a $3 million contribution from
former Regent Eugene Power
and $500,000 from community do-
nations, has been hailed for its
versatility for drama, opera and
musical productions.
The auditorium will have a ca-
pacity of 1.490 persons - twice
as many as nearby Mendelssohn
The new Modern Language
Building, to be completed by late
fall, will consolidate many of
the University's language and
communications facilities and
will include a large language lab
and two auditoriums.

law elarified
by officials
Members of the University's
Housing Policy Board yester-
day drew up a draft of a letter
to be sent to all incoming fresh-
men, stating that the Univer-
sity does not condone cohabita-
tion, premarital sex, and over-
night visiting in the dorm.
The move comes in the wake of
recent controversy during which
many University alumni and
members of the public have
railed indignantly against the
University's dropping of this
wording from the housing code.
University administrators have
hastened to assure the public
that the change in the housing
code represented only an editing
of the wording of the rules, not
a change in University policy to-
ward premarital sex.
"Our biggest mistake," says
housing director John Feldkamp,
"was in including the wording
concerning cohabitation in the
housing rules to begin with. This
area is adequately covered by
state law, and our treatment of
it was really unnecessary. But
now that we are trying to elimi-
nate all the extra wordage, the
general public gets the wrong
