THIS APARTMENT business in Ann Arbor
is getting entirely out of hand. There is
a pitiful scarcity of apartments locally and the
rentsare outrageous, approaching those in
the District of Columbia.
This situation has prompted both the Un-
versity and Ann Arbor landladies to throw
roadblocks in the paths of all unmarried male
students endeavoring to find a reasonable alter-
native to the regimentation of the dormitories
and the follies of fraternity system.
The Administration has decided to enforce
the provisions of Regents By-Law 1948, Section
8.07 Henceforth, no unmarried male student,
undergraduate or graduate, may live in an
apartment house, and the By-Law requires
permission from the Dean of Students for those
willing to risk their pocketbooks for privacy.
University officials have given two reasons
for reviving the 'By-Law: (1) there are not
enough apartment facilities in Ann Arbor to
accommodate married couples, and (2) there
have been numerous complaints regarding the
conduct of single male students living in apart-
The University has left a loop-hole for those
single men who can show an economic justifi-
cation for living in an apartment.
Meanwhile, the landladies are making it ex-
tremely difficult for men students to find a
tolerable apartment. A check on the bulletin
board in the Office of Student Affairs and in
the classified ads sections of the local papers
indicates that the landladies are overwhelm-
ingly in favor of marriage. After a call, the

If this rebuff doesn't cool off' the prospective

While we do not object to the By-Law, under
the circumstances, because it recognizes the
need for apartment facilities for married
couples, we do object to the conditions that
created the By-Law. Over the past three years,
Ann Arbor's apartment and housing problems
have become intolerable enough to merit the
serious examination of both the City Council
and the Administration. It is time that the
University and the City, respectively, explore
the possibilities of constructing new housing
units and also of establishing reasonable rent
Otherwise, the housing situation may drive
a good many students to other universities,
where no burdensome restrictions are placed on
non-collegiate housing, where a tenant can
live his own placid life without having to pay
famously for that simple prerogative.

out of town, President Eisen-
hower is spending more time on
the golf course at Gettysburg and
at the Burning Tree Club just out-
side of Washington.
Caddies at Burning Tree have
got to know the President almost
as well as some members of the
Cabinet know him. As far as golf
is concerned they know him bet-
ter. And some of the caddies have
quite a collection of his golf balls,
the gift to Ike of a sporting goods
firm, with "Mr. President" stamp-
ed on them. The President usual-
ly gives one or two away during a
match, but they are kept as sou-
venirs by the lucky recipients and
never put back into play.
Golfing companions have noted
a special improvement in Ike's
driving: he consistently pokes 'em
off the tee for 200 yards or long-
er. However, he is still a little er-
ratic in his putting and approach
shots, particularly on "chip" shots
that have to be lofted over a trap.
He works on this whenever he has
time to practice on the White
In a regular match the Presi-
dent shoots in the high 80's, bet-
ter than average at Burning Tree.
But he is a fierce competitor, hates
to lose to anyone,even his own
son, John, nowstationed at near-
by Fort Belvoir, Va. John hits a
longer ball but is not as good a
putter as his father, who usually
beats him by a few strokes.
Other favorite golfing cronies of
the President include Col. Tom
Belshe, a retired Army officer,
Jack Westland of Washington, and
GOP Congressmen Charlie Hal-
leck of Indiana and Les Arends of
Illinois. Westland was national
amateur golfing champion in 19-
52. However, Ike keeps his favor-
ite sport on a bipartisan plane by
sometimes inviting Rep. George
Mahon of Texas or another Demo-
crat to join in a foursome.
DANGER ON GOLF COURSE
THE PRESIDENT insists on split-
ting caddie fees with his four-
some partner. Counting tips, this
usually is $7 for 18 holes, making
Ike's share $3.50. He always pays
off in crisp new bills. At the end of
a match, he "replays" his good and
bad shots while under the shower
or while chatting with fellow play-
ers over refreshments at the "19th
Ike is an eager beaver type on
the green and moves so fast after
teeing off that he sometimes is
standing over his ball while com-
panions, who may be lying far-
ther from the green and therefore
are entitled to the next shot, are
preparing to swing again.
This causes some concern at
"Suppose," remarked one of Ike's
golfing pals, "one of us should ac-
cidentally hit the President while
he is standing there ahead of us.
He is such a strong competitor and
so engrossed in his game that he
doesn't think about the possibility
of getting conked by a stray ball."
When the President is advised
of his risky position, he apolo-
gizes and steps back with a grin so
the game can go on. The Secret
Service keep a vigilant eye on the
chief executive, though not out
of fear that he may be hit by a
golf ball. One of ' Ike's favorite
golfing stories is about a Secret
Service "lapse" one day when he
was playing at Burning Tree.
Secret Service agents were at
the entrance gate, checking auto-
mobiles and their occupants.
Merle Thorpe, former editor of
Nation's Business, drove up and
was asked his name. Without
blinking an eye, Thorpe reeled off
the most Russian-sounding name
he could make up, with a "ski" on
the end of it.
"Pass on in," said the agent

GOP LEADERS REPEAT
TODAY, Republican leaders are
equally determined to nomi-
nate Dwight Eisenhower, in part
for the same reasons. They know
that any other Republican can-
didate would have a hard time
winning. They know that on do-
mestic issues-Dixon-Yates, farm
prices, big business monopoly-the
Republicans face a rough cam-
paign. But on international issues
they feel Eisenhower has struck a
winning streak and can be pro-
moted as the "indispensable man."
However, there is one big dif-
ference. Eisenhower so far hasn't
bought the GOP line.
Unlike Roosevelt, who was will-
ing to go along with party leaders,
Eisenhower has been telling them
for months that they had to pick
new young leaders, that he was
not going to run again.
On Jan. 4, this column reported
in detail on one of the private
dinners at the White House at
which Ike told his closest friends
that they must begin building up
new, "dynamic" men to replace
This writer has consistently re-
ported-with one exception-that
Ike did not want to run again. The
except'ion was a column written
from Geneva, where it seemed to
this observer that Ike had hit his
stride, was doing the things he
likes best to do, and probably
could be persuaded to run again
on a "peace-in-our-time" plat.
However, the recent meeting he
had with Senator. George Bender
and other Ohio Republicans indi-
cates to the contrary and is more
significant than the public re-
alizes. For Senator Bender and
friends did not want to tell news-
men what Ike had told them. They
had to be prodded by the White
House into making a statement.
George Bender is quite a friend-
ly, loquacious fellow. He talks to
the press at the drop of a hat. But
he did not want to give newsmen
the discouraging news that Ike
considered age a detriment to
And it was only when Ike's press
officer intervened and asked the
Ohioans to report what Ike had
told them that they spilled the
news that GOP leaders had heard
privately, but hated to hear pub-
licly. In brief, the President de-
liberately wanted published the
fact that he would be the oldest
President in history if re-elected
and his feeling that the burden of
the Presidency erodes a man's
