However, the remaining two
conditions had not been met. The
contract termination policy had
not been re-evaluated, and a dif-
ferential rate scale between up-
per classmen and freshmen had
not been seriously re-considered.
"2) In the long run the policy
of self-supporting Residence Halls
will prove infeasible."
"3) The present policy has and
will lead to pricing persons out of
the Residence Halls; and, indi-
rectly, leads to rising rates in all
Ann Arbor housing."
"4) Student employees' wages
are not being raised while those
of full-time employees are."
"5) Inevitable r a t e increases
have proven, and will continue to
prove, a demoralizing factor in
the minds of students living in
Residence Halls, and to programs

that should be implemented with-
in Residence Halls."
When the proposed rate was
submitted to the Board of Gover-
nors of the Residence Halls, a fac-
ulty-administration-student group
in charge of Residence Halls, they
said ". . . the Board does not feel
that it can take responsibility for
the announced decision but since
the Regents' By-Laws require the
Board's approval such consent is
proforma only."
However, the Board adopted a
policy which included the realiza-
tion that, "clarification is neces-
sary in Regents By-Laws" so the
ultimate authority over rate mak-
ing is related to responsibility for
the decision; that there is an in-
herent danger to the concept of
residential living at Michigan be-
cause of the self-liquidating char-
acter of financing; that a realis-
tic appraisal of the situation
would indicate a strong possibility
of a repetition of the present
course; and that with these con-
riderations in mind ... would ap-
point an appropriate study com-
mittee composed of students, fac-
ulty and administration to con-
sider the financial area of future
room and board raises."
IHC president Bob Warrick,
'57E, said that the Committee, "is
a major gain in that it gives stu-
dents achance to review Resi-
dence Halls policy financially."
The University Board of Re-
gents later approved the increase.
Vice-president Wilbur K. Pier-
pont told the Regents that the
University's rates were in the up-
per third among schools in the
Big Ten and at the top among
other state-operated schools in
Michigan.
"But we provide moresservices
in our Residence Halls thahi the
others," he added.
President Harlan Hatcher said
it was the University's "fixed pol-
icy to keep tuition and room and
board rates at a minimum consis-
tent with sound operation."

TEACHING, PATIENT CARE, RESEARCH:
'U' Boass Complete

Medi*cal

Center

ICI

The University boasts one of
the largest and most complete
medical centers in the world.
Millions have been spent in the
last eight years building and a
ing to the medical center.
Designated as headquarters of
medical operations in Michigan
in case of nuclear attack, the
medical center is located on the
northeast sidenof'campus.
Medcial Men's Dream
It will represent, when the pro-
posed medical school is con-
structed, the dream of medical
men - teaching, research and
hospital facilities closely coordin-
ated in one area.
As a "teaching hospital," closely
allied with the medical school,
the center provides care for Mich-
igan residents referred by home
physicians.
But providing care for patients
is only one of three functions the
center carries out.,Students in the
medical and nursing schools and
in allied sciences are trained with
the use of hospital facilities.
A third function is research,
conducted at the center in many
frontiers of medicine.
To Enlarge Center
And still more funds have been
appropriated to enlarge the cen-
ter. Now under construction or inI
the planning stage are a $7,000,-
000 medical school and a 208 bed
Children's Hospital.
The medical school will be thef
first unit in what will eventually
be a two unit entity training stu-
dents in science and medicine.
The Children's Hospital under
construction is the second part
and will be joined with the 75 bed
Children's Psychiatric Hospital.-
Largest single unit is Univer-
stiy Hospital, a 12-story structure
constructed in 1925. It has more,
than 11 acres of floor space and
744 beds. Complete remodelling
has been started with total cost;
expected to exceed $8,000,000.

in available facilities.

The Thomas Henry Simpson In-

The Kresge- Bldg., a gift to the
University, includes the Kresge

Housed in the Out-Patient Bldg:
is the completely equipped emer-
gency unit, finest in the state. A
self-contained unit, the emergency
ward has operating rooms and fa-
cilities for major disasters.
The center treats nearly 20,-
000 hospitalizedrpatients yearly
and 230,000 day patients annually.
Center Self-Supporting
With'the exception of NPI and
the Children's Psychiatric Hos-
pital, the entire center is self-
supported and requires no state
funds.
The 1955-'56 budget of eight
and a half million dollars was met
by patient fees. Highest rates in
the state agre attributable, claims
Hospital Director Albert Kerli-

kowske, to the upkeep and prs-
ence of superior facilities and
equipment.
A division of the University, the
center is responsible to the Board
of Regents.
I1though integration will be
more complete when the new
medical school is built, there is
close coordination now between
nursing and medical schools and
the hospitals. Most of the doctors
in charge of hospital departments

head similar departments in the
medical school.
The University Hospital was the
first university-controlled hospi-
tal in the United States. It origin-
ated in a frame home of a faculty
member in 1869, which was con-
verted into a hospital for 20 pa-
tients at a cost; of $600 and has
grown into the present medical
center with buildings valued at
over $15,000,000.
Since 1869, the Hospital has

been located on three diffebent
sites on or near the University
campus. By 1876, 60 beds- were
provided in another frame struc-
ture. In keeping with a tradition
of the time, a part of this building
was marked for burning at the
end of a few years in order to
avoid "contamination of the sur-
rounding environment." In 1892
the capacity was increased to 100
beds.
The present Hospital was auth-
orized by an act of the legislature
in 1917 and completed 8 yearn
later at a cost of $3,500,000. The,
first patient was admitted in Aug-
ust, 1925, and the Hospital has
functioned continuously in its
present building.
