Ousing Called Major Discrimination Problem

However, the salesman reports
ne 'instances where owners have
ented. "One lady," he recalls,
)ld me out-and-out I couldn't
1 her house. I didn't say any-
ing to her then; a few days later
called at her home., and after
st talking with me for a while,
e said, 'Go ahead and sell my
use. I don't care what the
ighbors think'."
Neighbors Object to Negroes
"What the neighbors think" is
commonly-given reason for not
ling to a Negro. Many residents
y that selling their house to a
gro wouldn't bother them per-
nally, "but the people next door
>uldn't like it."
The same reason is often given
landlords for not renting apart-
ents or rooms to Negroes. The

Human Relations Board, in seek-
ing the policy statement from
Student Government Council,
mentioned a case of two Negro
students who sub-let an apart-
ment from another person in Sep-
When the landlord discovered
the students in the apartment, he
told the tenant he was "displeased"
with his having leased the apart-
ment to Negroes without his
knowledge. After two professors, a
member of the Human Relations
Commission, and a minister inter-
ceded for the students, the land-
lord agreed to let the students
occupy the apartment until Feb-
ruary, claiming be was "hurt in
principle" about the subleasing,
not because the students were
'Misinformed' by Telephone
In another case, two Negro stu-
dents were told in person no va-
cancies existed at a number of
apartments, after first being in-

formed by telephone there were
When they told one landlord on
the phone they were Negroes, he
said there was a vacancy, but
there was only room for one in
half of a double room. Two white
students who were sent over by
the Negroes, immediately rented
the room.
The landlord had no explana-
tion when the Negro students went
back to him afterwards.'
Another student spent the vaca-
tion between fall and spring
semesters seeking a place to live,
with no suaccess; landlords often
just refused, with no explanation.
The student is now living in the
men's residence halls.I
Quadrangles Accept Graduates
Situations such as these cause
the men's residence halls to admit
Negro (and foreign) graduate stu-
dents, although white graduate
students have not been permitted
to reside there.
According to Jack Hale, senior

resident director, the number of
Negro and foreign graduate stu-
dents who presently live in the
residence halls is "extremely small
-not more than eight or 10" of
The residence halls do not pub-
licize this permission, Hale said;
exceptions to the no-graduate-
student rule aren't announced.
But the rule exists, because of
the difficulty Negro and foreign
students have in finding places to
live. Infrequently, Hale said, a
Negro student has moved out of
the residence halls at the end of
a semester and moved back in
when he was unable to find an
apartment or room.
Rents to Foreign Students
As the residence halls recognize,
foreign students also face serious
problems, although their situation
appears not to be as acute. As one
Ann Arbor landlady says, "I rent
to Hindu, Japanese, Chinese, but
no Negroes."
Foreign students also find much
of their trouble stems from skin
