Holocaust ad
author wins
Texas battle

by Philip Cohen
Daily News Editor

The University of Texas at
Austin, and its student newspaper,
the Daily Texan, are caught up in a
rapidly-spreading controversy over
the publication of an advertisement
that denies the history of the Holo-
caust.
Before a crowd of about 70 peo-
ple, the university's Student Publi-
cations Committee last night voted
6-5 against running the ad - but
fell one vote short of the two-
thirds needed to overturn a review
committee's previous decision to
run it.
The meeting was attended by lo-
cal Jewish leaders, students and fac-
ulty - and also by Bradley Smith,
the man who wrote the ad and has

across the country for the Commit-
tee for Open Debate On the Holo-
caust.
"The Jewish community defi-
nitely let their viewpoint be known,
and in great numbers," said Daily
Texan Wire Editor Matthew Sey-
mour.
At the same time, the committee
also voted to postpone publication
of the ad until January, so students
would not be tied up with
Hanukkah and exams when the paper
hit the streets.
The advertisement, which claims
that histories of the Holocaust are
exaggerated fabrications, has been
printed by the Daily, the Duke
Chronicle, The Daily Northwestern
and the Cornell Daily Sun. Student

Cost, time constraints create

When the bells of Burton Tower
chime at 5 p.m. -today, many University
students will have gone home for
Thanksgiving break. But a number of out-
of-staters won't be travelling home for
the long weekend.
"I know a lot of people who aren't go-
ing home this year," Business student
Will Guimont said. Originally from
Portland, Ore., Guimont said a lot of peo-
ple he knows are taking side trips to
nearby places like Chicago; he plans to
visit Indiana with his wife.
With a longer holiday break just
around the corner, expenses and the short
time spent at home are the reasons stu-
dents are staying around for Thanksgiv-
ing, Guimont said.

More students commute, fewer
live near campus, 'U' reports

by David Rheingold
Daily City Reporter
An increasing number of stu-
dents are moving out of private
housing units near campus and rely-
ing more on commuter transporta-
tion, according to data compiled by
the University Housing Division.
Housing Program Director Ed
Salowitz presented the information
to the Ann Arbor Planning Com-
mission at its meeting last night.
The figures showed a breakdown
of the types of housing students live
in, compared with past figures.
Among the details:

students living in residence halls
(27 percent), sororities and fraterni-
ties (4 percent), University family
housing (4 percent), and cooperative
housing(1.5 percent).
Salowitz said he thinks the M-14
highway has probably encouraged an
increasing number of students liv-
ing in areas outside Ann Arbor to
commute rather than live near cam-
pus.
"Now, some of the commuters
are able to come up with more hous-
ing for the same dollar, and you may
be willing to put up with a 15-
minute drive if you're going to get

chair Sam Offen said he thinks the
University housing data is also im-
portant to the Planning Commis-
sion.
"There might be a way to use the
data to see if there's an adequate de-
mand for greater housing, and see
whether or not zoning will acco-
modate the demand," he said.
Salowitz said he believes many
students have been lured away from
nearby private housing by more en-
ticing units farther away.

sion that you're going to live on the
periphery of campus, what differ-
