Issue May Be Discussed
By Representatives Of
Students, Proprietors
Price-Fixing Move
Endorsed By Rader
A meeting between student rep-V
resentatives and Ann Arbors room-
ing house proprietors appeared like-
ly last night as Assistant Dean
Charles T. Olmstead, in charge of
student housing, began efforts to bring
about a discussion of the rooming
At the same time Hugh Rader, '38,
president of the Men's Council, en-
dorsed the movement for University
regulation of rooming house prices,
promising the support of the Coun-a
cil in carrying the proposal to the
Board of Trustees. When contacted.
last night Rader also backed the pro-
posed conference at which the Men's
Council has been asked to represent,
the students. The Landladies Asso-
ciation is expected to represent the
rooming house proprietors.
Dean Olmstead and Dean Joseph A.
Bursley met yesterday to consider
such price restrictions in approved
houses. Although details of the con-
ference were not released, it is under-
stood that the possibility of enforc-
ing such regulations remains the chief
stumbling block. Under this plan
the University would refuse to ap-
prove those rooming houses whose
prices were considered to promise
more than a fair profit upon the
capital investment. Administration
sources have pointed out that such a
program means the University would
virtually take over the houses since
maximum prices could not be set
without guaranteeing that all rooms
would be filled.
A survey of the housing situation
this fall indicated, however, that out
of 3,600 rooms on the approved list,
less than 100 have not been rented,
the office of the Dean of Students
disclosed. An alternate proposal, sug-
gested by members of the economics
department, would be to restrict rig-
idly the approved houses to a num-
ber sufficient for the incoming fresh-
man class. These could be subjected
to strict supervision and act as a
yardstick in price regulation. Only in
this way, members of the economics
department say, can the law of sup-
ply and demand be made to operate.

By Raini And Mud
(Daily Sports Editor)
PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 13.-(Spe-
,ial to the Daily)-In a veritable
quagmire, severely handicapping both
elevens, Michigan's fighting Wolver-
ines proved to be far better mudders
than the Penn Quakers here today
and thus won this 16th renewal of
heir intersectional rivalry, 7 to 0, be-
fore a sparse gathering of spectators.
Like a lightning bolt through the
torrential rain which drenched
Franklin Field all afternoon, Mich-
igan struck once late in the second
reriod to gain it's touchdown. Stark
Ritchie and Norm Purucker, stars of
the Chicago victory last week, again
collaborated for the Varsity score.
Mud Slows Up Game
The huge mud hole in which the
Igame was played negated any offense

though both Ritchie and Purucker
found the going enough to their lik-
ing to assure Wolverine success.
Michigan clearly displayed super-
iority in the first half, and a holding
penalty deprived them of still an-
other touchdown. However, once they
had gained a lead, the Wolverines
were content to play defensive foot-
ball and in this tactical approach,
