SGC Approves
Proposal on Bias



Recommends 'U' Stop Advertising
For Landlords Who Discriminate
Student Government Council last night approved a resolution
requesting that landlords who practice discrimination in race and
religion not be allowed to adveritise through University facilities.
The Council also adopted a policy statement on off-campus
housing calling for vigorous effort in ending discrimination on the
part of SGC, the University, and interested student groups. However,
it rejected a resolution asking the University Regents not to give
University registration to landlords who discriminate.
Sent to Offices
The resolution concerning advertising will be sent to the Office
of the Dean of Men and Dean of Women, the Faculty Housing Office,

Funds given to Athletes at the
University by the school are sub-

The amounts of the grant are

However, a student who is in.
the top quarter of his class is
entitled to a "free ride," regardless'
of his need. A "free ride," which
covers the cost of board, room,

amounts to $1,134 for an in-state
student and $1,484 for an out-

Dorm Plan
Young Democrats last night
passed a resolution supporting the
statement of principles on dormi-
tory room assignments formulated
Monday by a student group.
The statemept provides "that
the University should not, elicit
information in any form with re-
'gards to race, religion, nationality
or language spoken in the home."
Newly elected President Torre
Bissell, '60, told the YD's there is
an "awful lot to be done to aid
integration on this campus." He
called integration a "liberal issue."
Discussing the unidentified
photographers who allegedly took
pictures while Young Socialists
distributed their newspaper in
front of the Union last week, sev-
eral YD's termed the picture-tak-
ing "malicious." The group de-
ferred a resolution on the incident
until inquiries have been made.
Mrs. Marion Fox, vice-chairman
of the County Democratic Com-
mittee told the group a new liason
program is being put into effect
between the student group and the
County Committee.
She told YD's the new program
would include student participa-
tion ,in the county organization
to give training at a "grass-roots"
level. Mrs. Fox said the intensified
program has not been used "at
any other colleges."
SGC Suggests
Honors Group

Condoned Discrimination
Young replied \ the University
was condoning discrimination by
approving housing in which land-
lords discriminated.
Thee Council tabled until next
week a further resolution calling
on the City Council to consider
legislation prohibiting discriminA-
tion ih Ann Arbor housing. Lois
Wurster, '60, raised the question'
of the legality of. any legislation
in this field: Miss Houck said ap-
proving the motion could make
SGC "look foolish."
Young said SGC should not be
concerned .with determining the
legality' of such legislation, but
again would be expressing student
opinion in an area of student con-
cern. {

$79,000 on Grants
If a student has a job, his salary
will be subtracted from his "need
factor," orhe is required to turn
in the money. He may or may not
work .for the athletic department;
his pay need nottbe commensurate
with his work for the department,
but must be if he works for some
other employer.
This past year the University
spent $79,004 on grants. These
went to incoming freshmen and
