Dorm Rent Raise
Fixed Policy To Keep Tuition,
Room Rates At Minimum-Hatcher
The University Board of Regents yesterday approved a $20 per
year raise in roomand boardrates for residence halls.
No formal vote was taken. Under the Regents' by-laws, no
vote is required. The increase was presented in the form of a request
by University President Harlan H. Hatcher. Since it was not dis-
approved, the raise will go into effect next fall.
The increase is to cover increases in salary, and wages for resi-
dence hall employes and three extra days of food service brought
by the revised academic calendar, which also goes into effect next fall.
The increase brings the rate for a double room to $770 for the
academic year. This compares with $380 for men and $400 for women
- in 1939-40 or an increase of 102

into the presidential campaign in
near-desperate financial plight,
tapped Speaker Sam Rayburn yes-

The financial crisis facing the
party was the outstanding prob-

brought together Democratic lead-

"But we provide more services
in our residence halls than the
others," Pierpoat added.
President Hatcher said it was
the University's "fixed policy to
keep tuition and room and board
rates at a minimum consistent
with sound operation."
Regent Paul K. Adams started
the discussion by 'asking if the
raise was really necessary. He said
he had noticed that students were

if rates could be reduced by fin-

He added that student payments

He also questioned the conten-

United Nations secretary general
told newsmen after completing
four days of talks with Israeli
officials in Jerusalem.
Against a background of new
friction on the Jordan-Israeli
frontier, Hammarskjold took a
plane for his temporary headquar-
ters in Beirut, Lebanon. With con-
ferences in Egypt and Israel out
of the way, he expects to visit
Jordan and Syria next week.
He opened the mission with his'
flight from New York April 6
under Security Council orders to
seek an easing of tension.
The Egyptian-Israeli cease-fire
agreement, ordered effective Wed-
nesday night, is the mission's big-
gest announced accomplishment.
Egypt charged Israel has vio-
lated that cease-fire agreement
both aground and in the air. Is-

Parade Viewers Climb
Hydrants, Trees, Roofs
By PETE ECKSTEIN
They stuck their-heads out office windows; they closed their
stores and stood on the sidewalk outside; they climbed on painters'
scaffolds and Good Humor trucks; they stood on the top of the Ad-
ministration Building and theater marquees; they balanced on step-
ladders and fire hydrants; they put the roof of a Union construction
shack to the test-and it flunked.
They were coeds with Bermuda shorts shivering under slickers;
they were townspeople holding up children, or bolding them back;'
they were foreign students in beards and turbans; they were waiters
with their noses against the windows of empty restaurants-and

sounds heard in and
on the House Appropriations Com-
mittee took a second look yester-
day at the $1,200,000,000 soil bank
appropriation approved' by the
committee Thursday - and then
raised the roof.
They challen'ged the committee's
legislative authority to vote the
money, stated that no more than
250 million dollars worth of it
could be used for anything but
preventing soil erosion, and de-
clared only a limited acreage could
be taken out of production before
the appropriation expires Dec. 31.
The committee approved the
fund 36-7 Thursday as an emer-
gency measure to launch President
Eisenhower's plan to pay farmers
for withdrawing some of their land
from the production of crops.
Chairman Clarence Cannon (D-
Mo.) reported that only one Demo-
crat and six of the 20 Republicans
on the committee voted against the
appropriation, although all the Re-
publicans were opposed to a re-
port which accompanied the bill.
They began congregating around
3 p.m., forming first one row along
the street and then another row
pressed close behind. For 45 min-
utes or so they talked, sometimes
quite intensely, about anything but
the coming parade: "I'm sorry you
didn't come to my party last
night," "What did the Tigers do?"
But that was soon over. The
music grew louder, the crowd grew
thicker, and the tots jumped
around faster. "Here comes the
band," a beaming parent informed
his small son.
As the lead cars and marching
bands came by, shutters began
clicking. "I got Michiclef, any-

Enthusiasm waned as Michigras
bigwigs and judges rolled by in
convertibles. "Who are they any-
way?" asked one adolescent.
"Ma, ma, here comes Michi-
