Ypsilanti Board Meeting Brings
Charges on Deputies' Releases
Suspicion that recent suspensions and resignations of five Wash-
tenaw County sheriff's department employees were made for "political
reasons" was aired at yesterday's Ypsilanti Township Board meeting.
I The meeting was a lesson in the study of local town meeting
government-with clapping, booing, shouting and all the trappings.
Township supervisor Franklin J. Shepherd, still in office after
a successful recall election last Tuesday, attempted to explain to
spectators and Board members reasons why the township hired the

Due to lack of funds, Shepherd
said, the township might not have
any police force at all.
Shepherd, a graduate of Har-

ate of the University law school,
faced the comments of spectators
who said the hiring of the police
by the township was not provided
for in any ordinance.
One spectator, who had made
several comments during the meet-
ing, said that this was creating a
police force by "fiat." Another
person declared that the township
police car was "locked up" the day
after official appointment of the
deputies by township police chief
and treasurer Joseph J. Swope.

Offer Hope
To Lighten
Dorm Rates
Seek Aid to Students
To Ease Rising Costs
The residence hall rate study
committee said it could offer no
"easy solution" to rising room and
board rates but it offered s'ome
hope for lightening the effect of
room and board raises.
The committee report, released
yesterday, said "In an inflation-
ary period ... rates will continue
to go up as the cost of food, labor,
and materials goes up."
It eliminated the possibility of
relief by limiting building objec-
tives by citing the "need to main-
tain a continuing program of resi-
dence halls expansion in a grow-
ing university."
No Help From State
Until the state finds the finan-
cial resources, the report said, no
help can be expected from the
legislature in building residence
A rate rise can't be stopped,
committee member Jean Scruggs1
'58, said but the effect of the
rise could be lightened.
The report mentioned student
jobs, scholarships, awards and;
other forms of partial assistance
should be developed further. Not--
ing the decline of large endow-
ments, the report urged more or-
ganized effort to develop fre-
quent, small-scale and various
forms of aid.
Dormitory rates have doubled
since 1939, the report showed, but
the cost of food and labor, twor
big determinants of residence hall
rates, have increased even faster.
Costs of running dorms are
nearly equivalent to the average
of 12 midwestern schools. How-
ever, University residence hallsI
spent twice as much - five andt
one-half percent-as the average
of the other schools.t
Spent More Money
University residence halls alsoj
spent more for debt service -- 22.6q
per cent compared with 16.6 per
cent. Francis C. Shiel, Service En-
terprises manager, said this was
due to the greater expansion pro-i
gram of University residence hallsI
and that other schools hadn'tt
realized the rate of expansion4
they would need to keep pace witht
growing student enrollment. He
gave Ohio'State as an example of(
a school that had to increase
rates over $100 at one jump to(
provide for expansion.

Plan Calls
For Students
To Pay Costs
LANSING (P)-Should students
at state colleges and universities
pay a bigger share of the cost of
their education?
Lively debate over the question
today marked consideration of a
proposal to compel students to
finance a 100 million dollar build-
ing program for Michigan's nine
state supported institutions of
higher learning.
Rep. Willard I. Bowerman Jr.
(R-Lansing) came up with the
plan, suggesting it be submitted
to the voters next fall as an
amendment to the state constitu-
tion. It already has won approval
of the house rules and resolutions
It calls for students to retire
construction bonds, signing notes
agreeing to pay $90 a year for each
year they're enrolled. Notes would
fall due five years after issue.
"You might call it a delayed
contribution to the school alumni
fund," Bowerman told the House.
"Only the people who get the
direct benefit would pay the bill."
Fighting the plan, Rep. Joseph
Kowalski (D-Detroit) complained
it would "force a young fellow to
pay $600 in principal and interest
just after graduation, the years
when he can afford it least."
Rep. Adrian deBoom (R-Owos-
so), contended students would
gain "pride by paying for some-
thing they have acquired.
"When I graduated from col-
lege, I owed $2,500 to the bank at
seven per cent interest,", he said.
"I was earning $1,700 a year. To-
day's students get starting salaries
of $5,000. This proposal can't hurt
them much."

The final netminder was fresh-

The totals showed the Wolver-
ine goaltenders stopping 58 shots,
more than an adequate total for

troit goals soon stifled any hopes
of an upset.
Spirited Mood
The Wings started out the game
in a very spirited mood, contrast-
ed with Michigan's timidity. Howe
opened the scoring after taking a
pass from wing Jack McIntyre by
literally whipping the puck into
the net with his tremendous wrist
The force was so great, that

To Determine Validity
Of Guild's Charges
Of Discrimination
A thorough look into dormitory
roommate "integration" policies
was instituted yesterday by the
Residence Hall Board of Gover-
nors. -
The survey was proposed by the
Board to gather facts for its study
of roommate placement policy,
initiated by a Congregational De-
sciples Guild petition signed by
about 800 students and presented
to the Board. It will encompass all
residence halls.
The survey is planned to deter-
mine how many residents do live
with a student of a different race
or religion, how students said they
felt about rooming with a student
of a different race or religion on
their applications and the validity
of Desciples Guild charges 'of dis-
criminatory roommate placement
Reports Claim
Director of Housing Peter A.

made public.
Results of a student survey last
spring claimed that 97 per cent
of dorm residents room with some-
one of the same race, while 72 r
cent live with roommates e

However, Dean of Women Deb-

was "continual intimation that
whole corridors are made up of
"Jewish students."
Details Not Worked Out
He said there was at present no1
way the administration had of
identifying the race or religion of
all the residents.
Details of the survey have not
yet been worked out, according to
]Peter A. Ostam, director of housa-
ing He is not sure when the sur-
vey will be completed.
The Board also directed the
three to compile past action on
integration, determine the basis
of criticism of the Desciples Guild,
and compile evidence of how other
schools handle the roommate
placement problem. eF
Lists Statement
Men's residence hall application
policy has been to ask for a pic-
ture, a statement of religious pref-
erence and the question "Are you
interested in a roommate of a
nationality or race other than
your own?"
The women's application asks
for two pictures and contains the
question. "Specify any preferences
or qualifications you have regard-
ing a rommate."
Both contain a statement by the
Board of Governors to the effect
each student or parent has differ-
ent preferences and these "insofar
as administratively possible"
should be respected.
