without a scratch when their'
F86 Sabre jets collided at 23,-

crash yesterday while on a rou-

The two Selfridge Air Force
Base pilots ejected themselves
with automatic equipment and
parachuted to safety. Their
planes were demolished when
they plunged into open fields
near Berville, Mich.
An Air Force Board was or-

The bellies of the planes col-

the pilots said.

Calls Evidence
'Isolated Case'
Reiterating his reply to charges
made Wednesday by a Student
Legislature member of discrimina-
tion in Union hiring practices, Un-
ion president Jay Strickler, '54,
last night declared "there is no
policy of discrimination in the Un-
ion."
He said the case cited by SL
member Paul Dormont, '55, was an
"isolated case, not evidence of bi-
as." He added that perhaps Union
headwaiter Paul H. Cramton was
"rushed at the time" the Negro
girl was told there were no open-
ings."
DORMONT, IN his 15-page re-I
port to the Legislature, told of
two girls who applied for a Union
waitress job within five minutes of
j each other. The first, Alfreda
V MDuster, '55Ed., a Negro student,,
was informed there were "no open-
ings."
A little later, Cramton offered}
a job to Mary L. Parks, '54, sug-
gesting she "plan to start work-
ing Monday."r
Dormont claimed last nightj
there "can be no mistake." Cram-1
ton did not say to the Negro girl
he was too busy, but instead that
there were 'no openings,' while 40
minutes later there were "several,"
Dormont said.
CONCERNING THE part of his'
report regarding evidence of dis-
crimination fn Ann Arbor, Cham-
ber of Commerce membership,
Dormont said, "They have not tak-
en any interest in Negro store own-
ers or problems of the Negro com-J
munity."

Cooperation
S tdy Counmittee
To Make Survey
By JON SOBELOFF
The Inter-House Council last
night unanimously voted to tackle
the biggest project in its history--
"Operation Inquiry," an evalua-
tion of how well the Men's Resin
dence Halls system is working.
In setting up "Operation In-
quiry," the council adopted a re-
port by IHC president Roger Kid-
ston, '56L, on the aims of the pro-
ject and gave Kidston power to
appoint a study committee includ-
ing at least five students, to make
the evaluation.
*I * *
COUNCIL members also put
various gripes and suggestions
about the system on record for the
use of the study committee.
Commenting on the action,
Acting Dean of Students Walter
B. Rea said last night an evalu-
ation of the Michigan House
Plan would be especially timely
now, in view of anticipated-new
student housing needs in the
next few years.

Kidston's report set up four
areas of evaluation of the
Michigan House Plan:
1) The purpose of the plan.
2) Plant and facilities.
3) Staff-purpose, organiza-
tion, effectiveness.
4) Student government--pur-
pose, organization, effective-
ness.
Kidston plans to appoint repre-
sentatives of residence halls men,
residence halls staff, and the Res-
idence Halls Board of Governors,
as well as at least one fraternity
man who has lived in the quad-
rangles, to form the study comb
mittee.
The committee will make its
findings on strengths and weak
nesses of the residence halls sys-
tem available to quadrangle staffs,
the Board of Governors, the IHC,
men in the quads and the general
public, Kidston said.
The group will also suggest pos-
sible ways to remedy any weak-
nesses it finds.

COUNCIL members took the ac-
tion at a closed session and almost
none of them knew beforehand
what was on the agenda.
Among specific suggestions
made by Council members were:
1) cut the residence halls ad-
ministrative staff to perhaps
just one man in each house, 2)
allow upperclassmen to sign
room contracts for a single se-
mester instead of the present
"one-year or nothing" arrange-
ment, 3) allow residents to "live
in and eat out" if they want to,
paying for rooms but not food.
Several of the council members
criticized the quality and means
of selection .of the residence halls
staff.
At least a dozen Council mem-
bers aired other views, ranging
