ICC To Open
Cooperative
To Couples
Recogpizing that marriage is an
established institution, the Inter-
co-operative Council is opening
the first co-op here for married
couples.
The Council purchased the
building at 803 E. Kinsley for
$16,000 in December, and the
apartments will be ready for oc-
cupancy in late January. Six fam-
ilies can be accommodated in the
Kinsley house, but the waiting list
already includes eight.
AN INTERNATIONAL outlook
will be added to the house by sev-
eral families. Mr. and Mrs. Con-
rade Hinds and their three child-
ren are from Panama. Others on
the waiting list include Mr. and
Mrs. John Eluihleze and their
daughter who come from Nigeria,
and Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Yakir
from Israel.
The co-op for married couples
will operate in the same way as
other houses within ICC. The
house rent will be $210 per
month, and the families them-
selves will decide the individual
rent.
Money for repairs will be al-
lotted to Kinksley House from.
Council funds.
The resourtes of the Inter-co-
operative Purchasing Fund, which
purchases food supplies wholesale,
are also open to the married ten-
ants.
Kingsley House is a three-floor
building, with two four-room
- aparments on the first floor and
two two-room apartments on both
the second and third floors. Op-
'erating as a unit, the couples will
divide kitchen duties as well as
rent. The house will send two
representatives to ICC.

eral members of the Republican
Party.
In the House, Chairman Dan-
iel A. Reed (R-N.Y.) of the
Ways and Means Committee
plans to attempt cuts to five bil-
lion dollars in taxes. Although
Rep. Reed was reportedly "smil-
ing" after a recent conference
with the President, he will face
four alternatives in his announc-
ed policy:
He can abandon his hopes for
further large tax cuts, work to-
ward budget cuts of the same
amount, attempt raising the pres-
ent debt ceiling of 75 billion dol-
lars or face a fight with the Ad-
ministration similar to the one
waged last year over extension of
" the excess profits tax.
Other key legislation which will
probably be handled by Rep.
Reed's powerful Ways and Means
Committee includes plans to ex-
pand social security, reduce tariffs
and revise United States trade pol-
icies.
ONE REPRESENTATIVE that
is "absolutely sure," according to
reports, that billions of dollars can
be cut from the new budget is Rep.
John Taber (R-N.Y.). Chairman
of the House Appropriations Com-

mittee, Rep. Taber has annually
led fights for major reductions in
government spending during his
32 years of consecutive officehold-
ing.
A Senate ally of Rep. Taber's
in the fight for cuts in spending
is Sen. Harry F. Byrd (D-Va.).
The Virginian, who votes Re-
publican about 75 per cent of the
time,,favors keeping the present
debt ceiling, but might reluc-
tantly vote for a 5 billion dollar
raise in the ceiling if it is proven
absolutely essential.
Sen. Byrd is one of few Demo-
crats to hold Congressional office
in the Republican - dominated
houses. Last year he remained in
charge of the Joint Committee on
Reduction of Nonessential Federal
Expenditures.
* s s*.
DEMOCRATS IN both houses,
meanwhile, may face the curious
situation of campaigning on a Re-
publican President's program in
the fall. Last year only their co-
operation enabled many major
Republican policies to pass and it
is generally expected they will
again support Administration posi-
tions, on foreign policy, defense
measures and appropriations.
Rep. Sam Rayburn (D-Tex.)
will be the leading figure in cor-
ralling Democrtaic votes for or
against Administration policies.

News events across the nation's
have been sparked by severe' crit-
icism of the University of Geor-
gia's student weekly, "Red and
Black," for publishing its opinions
on segregation.
The paper printed an editorial
saying "with communism knock-
ing at the Negro's back door, we
cannot afford to let educational
segregation barriers stand. It is
as plain as the red flag in Rus-
sia that continued segregation can
and will cause the death of democ-
racy by the hands of its own lead-
ers."
ROY V. HARRIS, powerful Uni-

Income Status
Comparison
By PAT ROELOFS
Are Americans keeping up with
the Joneses?
To make comparisons with the
average member of a particular
income group, Ann Arborites may
consult the statistical charts
drawn up with the aid of the Uni-
versity Survey Research Center
appearing in the February issue
of Pageant magazine.
AVERAGES USED to determine
just what kind and how much
spending is necessary to stick to
the norm are based on figures ob-
tained from the Research Center,
the Federal Reserve Board, the
Institute -of Life Insurance and
Electrical Merchandising Maga-
zine.
By selecting his income level
on a given chart and following
a system of adding and' sub-
tracting points for any devia-
tion from the average, a person
may determine his status as
compared with the Joneses.
The value of a house or amount
of monthly rent, amount of equity,
value and age of automobile, li-
quid assets, household furnishings,
life insurance and household ap-
pliances from a radio to an air
conditioner are included in the
charts.
A POINT OF interest is that
the once luxury TV set is worth
only four points out of a possible
100 as compared to five. for an
automatic washer or deep freeze
unit.
Examples of average sums
spent in specific categories tak-
en from the study by the Re.-
search Center show that a per-
son earning $5,000 annually
spends $250 on education, $200
for vacation and pays $750 in
taxes.
A member of the $50,000 per an-
num income bracket pays $2,000
for vacation and has taxes
amounting to $22,500, or close to
half his income.
Author Paul D. Green, who
compiled the statistics from vari-
ous sources concludes that a per-
son's standard of living is meas-
ured not so much in what he has
to satisfy his individual tastes and
needs, but in how he stacks up
with the people around him.
In fact, according to-the green,
the U.S. is a nation of Joneses.

versity regent, replied in effect
that "the people of Georgia would
not be willing to support a univer-
sity which advocated mixing and
mingling the races . in public
schools of this state."
According to Georgia's stu-
dents Harris is attempting to
squelch their fundamental right
of freedom of the press. But
Harris argues the question is not
freedom of the press, but wheth-
er the Board of Regents will al-
low itself to be dictated to by
the student body.
On the campus of Williams Col-
lege, Mass., 14 of the 15 fraterni-
ties are participating in the Cam-
pus Business Management plan
this year, in an effort to cut costs
through a system of centralized
purchasing.
Under the new program, pur-
chasing is handled by the college's
director of dining halls. Each fra-
ternity buys its foodstuffs from
a central storage center incorpor-
ated in the new Student Union.
* *
THE CdLLEGE wll operate a
central dining hall in the Student
Union for the use of the non-af-
filiates and freshmen. The special
dining hall is part of a plan to de-
emphasize fraternities under a
system of deferred rushing.
In the future, no freshman
will be pledged and only the
three upper classes may rush.
The Student Union will provide
dining facilities for freshmen,
many of whom would have been
pledged by fraternities before
the'school year began under the
old system.
According to the Cornell Daily
Sun, one Cornell professor and a
grad student have received the
first annual Boris Pregel Prize of
$500 from the New York Academy
of Sciences for their paper on "Ra-
diogenic Origin of the Helium Iso-
topes in Rock."
Prof. Philip Morrison of the phy-
sics department and Jerome Pine,
a Ph.D candidate have announced
their theory that the earth's hel-
ium comes from the natural radio-
active decay of uranium in ordi-
nary rock.
