ESIDENTS TR Y TO BUILD COMMUNITY:
'U' Family Housing eases burden
By GEOFFREY OLANS
"In the summer there's all sorts of
things, like playground and basketball.
You can go to the creek and throw rocks
and play in the tunnel," says Daniel ex-
citedly. "Yeah," affirms Freddy, "it's
great. You can get on the bus and go in-
to the city whenever you want."
Daniel Crespo and Freddy Freeman,
,who attend the nearby Logan Elemen-
y School, live on North Campus in
iversity Family Housing.
FAMILY HOUSING serves a need
,not only for the children, but more im-
-portantly for their parents of limited
;financial means, who must raise a
family and try to get through school at
the same time.
According to John Finn, the Univer-
sity's associate director of Student
Relations, Family Housing provides af-
fordable and reasonably comfortable
,living space at rates significantly
Weaper than those of off-campus
The University's Off-Campus
Housing Department reports that an
average three-bedroom apartment in
Ann Arbor costs residents $550 to $600
per month, whereas a similar dwelling
in the University's Family Housing
ranges at about $260 per month.
FAMILY HOUSING consists of 1,672
living units, ranging from single room
efficiencies to three-bedroom
townhouse apartments. Five different
Northwood Apartment complexes scat-
tered about North Campus account for
1,500 of the units. The rest are lcoated in
University Terrace Apartments,
behind the Markley dormitory.
According to Finn, 88 per cent of
Family Housing is reserved exclusively
for students, with the rest of the space
reserved for University staff and
FInn pointed out that there is an in-
creasing number of international
students living in Family Housing.

FAMILY HOUSING units are
assigned as vacancies occur, on an in-
come priority basis. Those that can
least afford the rates of off-campus
housing go to the head of the line. Finn
insists, however, that all families that
can't afford non-University housing are
Parents, like their children, have
agreeable things to say about Family
Housing. Referring to her Northwood
Apartment, Blondell Strong, a mother
active in community affairs, commen-
ted, "Aside from the finances, I guess
what I like is its convenient location
with shopping nearby and its ac-
cessibility through the bus service.
"The homes are well constructed and
the area is good for the children - they
have plenty of playmates." The multi-
ethnic composition of the community
and the "sometimes slow, but always
reliable" maintenance service were
also mentioned by Strong as assets.

Hand "was one of three people directly
putting pressure on me to say nothing to
the media or the police." The others
were Hamlin and Jeff Ducomb, a
member of the board.
Carl claims that Hamlin, who was
chapter president when the incident oc-
curred, instructed many of the house
membership not to comment on the in-
cident to police, the Ann Arbor Humane
Society or to the media. Carl happened
to be in the room when this occurred
and he specifically was told not to talk
and was physically threatened by one of
CARL SAID last night he advised
house members it was in their best in-
terest to release the identities of the
alleged cat killers.
The controversial incident involves
five fraternity members who captured
their house cat, cut off its paws, then set
it on fire.
Carl said he is "seeking the remain-
der of his contract," which expires this
May. "I had cause to leave," he said.
"In mid-December, I knew there was a
cover-up (that Hamlin initiated.)"
Current chapter president Bill
Holmes had no comment on the suit last
night and said he hadn't read it.
Alumni President Gene Hand was not
available for comment last night.
AT THE same time, however, some
parents expressed disappointment with
the external- conditions of the com-
plexes. More than one specific referen-
ce was made to the prevalence of dirty
A variety of recreational activities
are provided for children and families
in Family Housing by the North Cam-
pus Recreation Building (NCRB), and
occasionally by the Ann Arbor
According to Jan Wells at the NCRB,
there is a Sports-orama program of-
fering a variety of activities every
Saturday morning for children between
the ages of three and ten. In the after-
noon, student volunteers from the
University provide similar activities
for adolescents. Sunday afternoons, the
NCRB is reserved for family use only,.
JOAN SCOTT, formerly involved in
the North Campus Ministry, does not
feel that the NCRB is doing enough. "I
am disturbed that the kids are not
allowed to go to the gym unaccom-
panied (by their parents) during the
week," she said.
Another related complaint is that
gym equipment is sometimes
unavailable to children when they go to
the NCRB during the weekend.
