TYPE OF UNITS

Race is on
for larger
rental units,
landlords say
By JACKIE YOUNG
It's easy to put off looking for a place to live next
fall, especially since Ann Arbor's vacancy rate was
more than 13 percent last year and will probably
rise even more.
But if you're finicky about where you live, it
might be a good idea to stop procrastinating and do
some window shopping to see what suits your taste
and wallet.
"IT'S A good time to look now if you want a
specific location or a large rental unit," said Brenda
Herman, a University housing advisor. "There just
aren't that many large apartments on campus.
But those who aren't so picky can take their time,
said Herman. "There are a lot of one and two
bedroom (apartments) and there are a lot of places
if it doesn't make any difference to you where
you're located," she said.
It's bejter -to rent with two or more people,
however; because if one person backs out, it's easier
to fill his or her space, according to Herman.
Students should also be aware that an eight-
month lease brings not only the freedom of not
having to sublet, but a 10 percent to 20 percent
premium also. So even though some students sign,
eight month leases, they often end up paying 10
months of rent, Herman warned.
LOCAL LANDLORDS tended to agree with Her-
man's assessment of the housing situation. "Get
out there and look. The longer you wait, the more
the chance is that only the less desirable apartmen-
ts will be available," said Dick Vail, manager of
Ravaip Management.

inactive
on South

Africa
By BILL SPINDLE
The troubling question of South
African divestment returns to the floor
of the faculty's governing body
tomorrow for the first time in several
years, and the questions involved
remain as complex as ever.
The basis for discussion will be a
recommendation that the University
maintain its holdings in companies
operating in the apartheid nation, while
playing "a more active role" in en-
couraging those firms to improve the
social and economic conditions of their
employees there.
JUST WHAT the phrase "play a more
active role" means is a mystery to
University administrators, who say
they aren't sure what the faculty mem-
bers who prepared the report have in
mind.
But a close look at how the Unviersity
has implemented its five-year-old
policy for Teform in South Africa shows

polic y
that the meaning may be obvious: The
University has failed to divest from
several companies that have not met
anti-apartheid guidelines set by an in-
dependent ratings firm. And investing
in those companies appears to be in
direct contradiction to the Regents'
1978 resolution which calls on firms to
work for progress in South Africa and to
publicly disclose the efforts they've
made in the area.
One firm in which the University in-
vests, Carnation Co., has denied Unive-
rsity requests for information for
nearly three years, yet the University
holds on to that stock.
IN LATE 1980, Norman Herbert, the
University administrator in charge of
implementing the Regents' policy,
warned Carnation in a letter that "the
University's continued investment in
Carnation is predicated on your prompt
and complete response to our request
for information."
Carnation has received poor ratings
for its efforts in South Africa from Ar-
thur D. Little, Inc., a consulting firm
that rates companies on their

Activist
labels non-
violence
just one
tactic
By PHILLIP K. LAWES
Non-violence is a tactic for effecting
yocial change, but it's no more than a
tactic, Kwame Toure, who under the
name Stokely Carmichael was a
leading black activist in the '60s, told a
campus audience yesterday.
But if non-violence does not work,
"pick up a gun, pick up a hand grenade,
pick up anything, but get your
liberation by whatever means," Toure
said at a weekend conference on civil
rights.

Student Non-violent Coordinating
Committee (SNCC) advocated "the

New museum
gives guests
the feel
of science

By JAYNE HENDEL
A red-bricked reminder of cobblestone streets and
meterless hitching posts, Ann Arbor's former fire
station commands no more than a glance from
passersby.
But a closer look through the structure's arched
windows reveals murals, machines, and mirrors. "I
hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I
understand," is written on one wall.
THINGS HAVE changed at the old fire station.
For the last four months the buildingwhasrhoused
the Ann Arbor Hands-On-Museum where pre-
schoolers through Ph.Ds can experiment with
exhibits designed to explain scientific phenomena.
On the ground floor, the exhibits explore the human
senses. One machine measures hearing frequency,
another allows visitors to examine their fingerprints,

and by stepping on the metric scale, one can lose
weight instantly.
An adjoining area deals with genetics; explaining
such mysteries as why some people have connected
earlobes, some brown eyes and some curly hair.
OTHER GROUND floor exhibits include a
mirrored light room, where the effects of color on
mood can be felt, and a computer that nutritionally
analyzes a lunch.
The museum's top floor is gearedmore toward
physics and art. One corner houses a hot air balloon
that falls and rises, nearby, a rotating device explains
the history of spinning tops.
Near one window is a well which contains a soapy
film that can be stretched to the ceiling.
