-The Government yielded to re-
quests for relaxation of controls
over size for new housing today--
by exactly 150 square feet.
But to take advantage of that
you have to be building a house
without a basement. The 150
square feet leeway was authorized
by housing expediter Frank R.
Creedon for utility rooms.

Michigan's first student, class of
1845, had troubles.
Enrolling at the university in thet
fall of 1841, just 105 years and an
estimated 149,513 students ago Ly-
man Decatur Norris was the only
student on campus for three
weeks. And in spite of the fact
that he had the undivided attten-
tion of the entire faculty of four,
he was lonely.
Other students appeared before
long, however, and Norris soon
had grounds to suspect that he
was going to college and not mere-
ly being tutored. But he didn't
graduate with his class. In the
spring of 1814, the faculty decided
to send him East to Yale, in order
to compare the curricula of the
two universities. He came back in
1845 with a Yale degree in time
to attend the graduating exercises
of his old class.
Norris received the honorary
master of arts degree from the
University in 1869 and was later a
regent. He practiced- law in Yp-
silanti and Grand Rapids.

The M.E.A. Board of Directors,
he reported, is supporting two ad-

schools for consideration of the
votes at the 1948 general election.
One would sectire increases in
school millage above the alloca-
tions made by the County tax al-
location board by a majority vote
of the electors, a second proposal
would raise the period over which
millage increases could be voted
from five to 15 years.
Phillips proposed a 19-point pro-
gram of educational standards in
the state, including improved
teacher training programs, elimi-
nations of limited teachers' cer-
tificates, a maximum work week of
40 hours for a minimum school
