'U' Official
Sees Raise
In Quad Fees
Food Problems,
Budget Discussed
A University official predicted
another rise in residence hall rates
for the coming semester.
At a meeting of the Inter-House
Council last night, Francis C.
Shiel, Manager of Service Enter-
prises said that while the exact
amount of the increase is not
known as yet, there will be some
advance in fees. Shiel said that
similar increases are predicted for
all Big Ten residence halls.
* * *
SHIEL, together with Wilbur K.
Pierpont, Vice-President of the
University and Leonard A. Schaadt,
Business Manager of Residence
Halls, met with the group to an-
swer questions previously sub-
mitted by the IHC dealing with
residence hall food and budget
Asked whether some provision
couldn't be made to improve the
preparation and quantity of
food, Schaadt said that to do
this would necessitate a corres-
ponding decrease in other quad-
rangle services. This could ob-
viously not be effected, he said.
Speaking on the residence hall
budget, Pierpont told the group
that while the detailed accounts
are not open to public examina-
tion, an authorized representative
from the IHC could obtain the ex-
penditures on certain specific items
which pertain to the quadrangles.
When asked how much of the
total amount which residents pay
for room and board goes for food,
Schiel said that 31 per cent is spent
specifically on the purchase and
preparation of food, while an ad-
ditional 19.2 per cent goes toward
ding room labor. It was estimated
that approximately two dollars a
day per resident is spent on food.

By a unanimoys vote Monday
the MSC athletic committee ve-

BOB GOLTEN, '54, Wolverine

Golten explained that the
Wolverine Club will probably
not be able to sell tickets as a
group to students, but will pro-
vide transportation.
Approximately 10,000 tickets
will be on sale to the public. A
spokesman of the athletic depart-
ment who declined to be named,
said that this number of tickets
"will hardly be enough."

opinion and "this should be the

SAC Denies
Fund .Drive
Plea by YD
Daily Managing Editor
The Student Affairs Committee
yesterday by an 8-6 count denied
permission for a Young Democrat
sponsored campus fund drive.
The money-raising "Dollars for
Sense" campaign was designed
primarily to help unsuccessful
Democratic candidate Adlai E.
Stevenson serve, as "party leader
and provide money for further ra-
dio and television appearances.
* * *
THE SAC decision was based on
a University regulation which
places stringent limitations on so-
licitation of students on campus or
in organized residences.
Drives may be held if the ap-
proval of the SAC is obtained.
However, in the past the bars
have only been lowered in the
case of well-established chari-
ties such as the Red Cross, and
March of Dimes, local welfare
projects like Galens and Fresh
Air Camp, Tag Day, and emer-
gency charity drives, such as the
Dutch flood relief campaign to-
YD Chairman Blue Carstenson,
Grad., declared that the faculty
drive, which does not require SAC
sanction, will continue.
ALSO AT yesterday's meeting,
SAC denied a request of the Stu-
dent Bar Association for 1:30 per-
mission for their annual dance
March 14.
Strong protests to a campus-
wide late permission on that
date were made by the Men's
Glee Club, which has an invest-
ment of $8500 in a Fred Waring
concert scheduled on that date.
Dave Callahan, '53BAd, spokes-
man for the Glee Club, declared
that a late permission grant would
induce many groups to sponsor
social events competing with the
Waring appearance.

will be held from 9 a.m. to 3

Wolverine Club To
Discuss Policy

Daily City Editor
Retiring Wolverine football captain Merritt "Tim" Green yester-
day called Sunday's probationary move against Michigan State
"poetic justice."
But at the same time the 21-year-old senior said the action "does
not strike at the heart of the problem."
* * * *
"THE CONDEMNATION was certainly justified," Green said.
"But such practices are going on at other schools. State is one of
the major offenders and the reforms should start there."
In a Daily interview, the bespectacled political science major
called double-standards for athletes in the classroom the greatest
evil threatening college football today.
Green also lashed out at:
1) "Shady recruiting practices which are corrupting our youth
and damaging the reputation of higher education in general."
2) "Pressure on coaches by sports writers, fans and college
alumni which tends to destroy the real values in football."
As for subsidization of players, Green urged that it be
"cracked down on, particularly where state funds are involved."
