year in hotel,
linen closets
Sept. 5, 1974 - Nearly 50 fresh-
men are enjoying the comforts of the
Bell Tower Hotel, including color
televisions and maid service, thanks
to the University Housing Office.
For the fourth year in a row, the
lucky first-years will spend the next To play:
few weeks living at the hotel while
waiting for dorm vacancies.
The room shortage resulted There is n
when the housing office incorrectly
estimated the number of freshmen
committed to living in University Dj
housing, but would ultimately not
attend, would be 2.5 percent. Nine-
ty-six freshmen are without a per-
manent place of residence. Those
who are not at the hotel are living
in Bursley Residence Hall's linen
closets or in the rooms of Resident
Advisors.
University Housing Director
John Feldkamp said he did not
oversell residence hall rooms, but
he admits to having miscalculated
the number of vacancies.
"It's a great puzzle to me," said
Feldkamp. "There was nothing
new in the application rates this
year - I'm not quite sure why
this happened."
Several students living at the Bell
Tower Hotel said they are pleased
with their accommodations, espe-
cially because they are ing charged
regular dormitory housing rates..

lered negotiations

continued yesterday with no
word of any progress toward a
new contract for the Detroit Fed-
eration of Teachers.
Layonda Baldwinis among those
who are choosing charter schools
over the Detroit Public Schools.
Baldwin is sending her 5-year-
old son to the Detroit Edison Pub-
lic School Academy, where he will
start kindergarten tomorrow.
Baldwin, who was educated in
the Detroit schools, said she thinks
a lot has changed since she was a
student more than 10 years ago
and thinks the district does not do
enough for the teachers.
"They can't work for free," she
said. "If their livelihood is not
taken care of, how are they going
to take care of other people's chil-
dren's livelihoods. We spend so
much money on stuff that makes
no sense."
Baldwin has no plans of ever
sending her son to a Detroit
public school.
"As long as DPS is doing what
they are doing and it's a lousy
job of it, yes, he will be in a
charter school," Baldwin said.
"I'd rather pay for my son's edu-
cation out of my pocket than put
him is DPS."
