Campus family center

Many students raising families say they have unique
needs and require different University services than av-

BASED on reports from the Resident's Council
and the Family Housing Rate Committee, Vice Presi-

proposed raising family housing rent by $3.55 per
month to build the $1,660,000 14,000-square foot
Ifethe regents approve the center, it could be com-
pleted by fall 1989, Brinkerhoff's report said. "The
problem is money," Regent Paul Brown (D-Petoskey)
said. "It's not that we don't think it should be there. I
support it, but we just have to be able to find a way to

the past, Luskin said. But Dan Bode, a member of the

comments. The support seems to be pretty much
THE PROPOSED building would be located at
Hubbard and McIntyre on North Campus, and would
include a large meeting room, a kitchen, an exercise
room, a study, and more space and storage, according to
Brinkerhoff's report. The building, however, would not
provide overnight housing, Luskin said.
Nevertheless, "the current facilities are grossly inad-

"WE NEED to have a place where kids can go,"
Carson continued. "We really need more space. We
need someplace where families can get together and talk
together as families."
The speakers stressed that the family housing meet-

Family housing residents are spread out around 150
acres, Luskin said, and "they need a gathering place...

coverage of the conflicts was
accurate - Israel, he said, was
open to American reporters and did
not censor the press. He said that
pleas for reporters to put the
conflict in historical perspective
are unrealistic because both sides
have a history of oppression to
back their cause.
Sara Roy, author of The Gaza

economic causes of the
Palestinian revolt. She said the
gains Palestinians have made
under Israeli occupation must be
looked at within the larger picture
of economic hardships.
She said that the Palestinians
don't feel in control of their lives.

Regents name interim
director for 'U' libraries
By SHARON TEHAN
The University's Board of Regents
} yesterday named Robert Warner the
interim director of the graduate li-
brary. Warner will replace the current
director, Richard Dougherty, who
announced his resignation last
Warner predicted the new position
will keep him busier than his current
job as dean of the School of
Information and Library Studies, a
post he has held since 1985.
"A positive impact (of the ap-
pointment) is that it fosters a strong
and mutual relationship between the
library and the school (of Information
and Library Studies,)" Warner said.
"They have a similar business."
"The University library has a
leadership role in the nation as well
as a service role on campus," Warner
said. His term as interim director is
open-ended for up to two years.
After 10 years as director of the
library, Dougherty said he is eager to
face new challenges because the same
issues seem to come up every year.
"It's a change for positive rea-
sons," said Dougherty, who will
continue his post as professor in the
School of Information and Library
Studies. He has already begun
acquiring funding for future projects,
which include a study of the econ-
omy of publishing and leadership de-
