oil protection

WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Carter, citing a "grave threat" to Mid-
dle East oil supplies, vowed last night
that any Soviet effort to seize control of
the Persian Gulf region "will be

he wants to "begin registration" of
draft-age youths, but expressed hope
that "it will not be necessary to reim-

In an overture to Islamic nations in,
the vital oil producing Persian Gulf
region, the president said he hoped "to
shape a cooperative security
framework that respects differing
values and political beliefs, yet enhan-
ces the independence, security, and
prosperity of all."

asked that he not be identified, said the
president did not seek a formal alliance

the major oil consuming nations to
meet the Soviet threat to the Persian
Gulf area, but was not specific.

"NAMING MLB after Fleming would be a complete

Department. "Fleming was against humanities, and in

was the Administration Building."
The professor went on to say that some faculty
members have expressed bitterness over the proposal.

. Humane Society to stop donating house pets

Angered by the recent cat-killing in-
cident involving members of Alpha
Delta Phi fraternity, the local chapter
of the Humane Society has refused for,
now to give house pets to University
Fraternity members say that isn't
No requests for pets from fraternities
will be granted for the time being, ac-
cording to Diane Allevato, director of
the Humane Society of Huron Valley.
She acknowledged that the brutal
killing of a cat by fraternity brothers in
early December was "a catalyst for

checking our policy" on Greeks.
MARK NEIIMER, a former
president of Delta Chi fraternity, said a
Humane Society worker recently made
it clear to him that his fraternity could
not get an animal from the
organization. Delta Chi may be able to
adopt a dog in about two months, he
said he was told.
Allevato said Delta Chi's request is
being reviewed. "The majority of
fraternity adoption requests have been
turned down in the past," she said. "We
don't want an animal adopted out to a
setting where it's going to be burned or
hit by a car."

Fraternity life and pets don't mix,
Allevato said. "Problems develop when
an animal lives in a communal living
situation," she said.
Nehman objected to that claim.
"IT IS unfair to hold others respon-
sible for the actions of a few individuals
who happen to belong to a fraternity,"
he said. "I feel that (the cat-killing)
was an isolated incident, and that it
doesn't represent the Greek system."
Nehman said Delta Chi's previous
pet, a beagle, ran away and never came
back. But he added that the fraternity
has taken good care of pets in the past.
The request for a new mascot was ac-

companied by a recommendation from
an LSA assistant dean, he said.
According to Allevato, the cat-killing
was only an example of a larger
problem. "Fraternities sometimes
'vote out' their mascot pets, and bring
them back to us. There is a lot of
irresponsible pet ownership. Frater-

Co-ops, dorms offer alternative housing

If the thought of living in a house next fall doesn't thrill,
and if apartment living is unappealing, don't fret: Even in
Ann Arbor's less-than-plenteous housing market, there are
lots of options available.
Nearly half of all students live in cooperative housing,
fraternities and sororities, and University-operated housing.
Each of these living alternatives has its own character,.
which allows students a diversity of options.
In yesterday's edition, the Daily in-
correctly reported the phone number
for Sang Nam, an area andlord. The
correct number is 662-0351.

UNIVERSITY HOUSING comprises about one-third of all
student housing, providing homes for about 10,000 students.
The traditional halls, those usually distinguished by
cafeteria operations inside the building, are usually made up
of first and second year students, with few juniors, and even
fewer seniors. Dorms are noisy, expensive, (room and board
for next year might jump 13 per cent higher than current
rates), and usually don't provide as much privacy as some
residents would desire.
But ready-made meals, washers and dryers, recreational
equipment, and a social atmosphere make dorms popular
places to live. Many current dormies try to return each year,
only to be shoved out of the residence halls because the
Housing Office must vacate nearly 60 per cent of the living
spaces to make room for incoming freshpersons.
The University also runs non-traditional halls, which are
generally less expensive than their traditional counterparts.
