New Library Opens Tomorrow



University President Harlan
Hatcher will officially open the
ne Undergraduate Library at 7:55
a.m. tomorrow.
President Hatcher will turn the
key unlocking the doors of the
$3,105,000 structure andrgreet the
first students to enter, according
to Erich A. Walter, Assistant to
the President.
Other University top adminis-
trators will also be on the scene
for the opening ceremonies.
From its .opening day, the Un-

S to Provide
Rent Contracts
Upon Request
The University is preparing to
offer students and Ann Arbor land-
lords rental contracts it was an-
nounced yesterday.
Dean of Men Walter B. Rea said
the "rental agreements" will "spe-
cify periods o occupancy, condi-
tions of quarters and other mat-
ters." The forms will be available
on a -oluntary basis.
Re-establishment of a housing
bureau in the dean of men's office
was also announced. It will pro-
vide "better service to household-
ers and men living in off-campus
The contracts will be available
to any householder who has been
certified by the city as com'plying
with the state housing laws and
city ordinances.
Certificates Issued
Certificates of compliance are
issued by the Ann Arbor Depart-
ment of Building and Safety En-
gineering. About 130 off-campus
housing units with rooms for four
or more men students have been
certified to date.
Owners of these units will be
invited to participate in the pro-
gram. Assistant Dean of Men Karl
D. Streiff, who will direct the hous-
ing bureau, said the certified
housing has a capacity of 400 to
450 students.
He noted there are some 3,600
students living in off-campus
housing which is not normally
certified by the city. These stu-
dents are living in what are called
non-multiple dwellings.
Initiates Action
The city initiates action to cer-
tify only those housing units clas-
sified as multiple where four or
more non-family people are rent-
ing space.
Dean of Housing Peter Ostafin
said he believed non-multiple
dwellings could be certified if their
owners requested it. This would
permit owners of this type of
housing to participate in the
rentalagreement program.
Initially the bureau will be con-
cerned with rooms and not apart-
ments. Streiff said the University
would like to have apartments
brought under the program in the
He did not say when this would
be possible.
Householders and student tenA-
ants each will have copies of the
agreement and one copy will be
kept at the housing bureau. Should
any disagreement arise between
the parties, the office will assist
both involved in the problem.
Dean Rea emphasized the bu-

The general card catalog will

the Reference Librarians' section.
There will be additional files lo-
cated on all three floors of the
library, which will list the books
located on that particular floor.
Reserve books, periodicals and
newspapers will be accessible on
the open shelves. Reference librar-
ians, said Mrs. Keniston, will be
available to answer any questions
about the facilities of the library.
To facilitate c. ecking on the
books charged froti' the collec-
tions, there will be one general
exit area, on the north side of

Bias. Study
Interfraternity Council's presi-

questioned the necessity for Stu-.

formed committee to study fra-
ternity bias clauses. He said "sb..

fines for violation of rushing and

Cumming explained that in the
past the Executive Committee,
IFa's judiciary body, has been
limited to either .assessing just
$100 or Jumping to social proba-'
L ion or denial of rushing.
The Assembly also voted to
change the procedure for nomi-

visible for miles up and down the
beaches of the Florida east coast.
The roar of its rocket engine
did not reach watchers on the
beaches four or five miles from the
launching area until fully a minute
after the takeoff.
For a minute or more after the
missile vanished into the clear
night it could be heard, stillroar-
ing on higher and higher toward
the southeast.
A series of more than a dozen
bright flashes, like the popping of
photographic flash bulbs, marked
the trail of the Redstone through
the avenues between the stars.
First there were three flashes in
a row, about one and one-half
minutes after the takeoff and
while the red light of the missile
was still plainly visible.

of the Redstone, reportedly flew

StateN Budget Soon
Gov. G. Mennen Williams, under fresh attack yesterday by
legislators, is expected to deliver his budget message this week.
Lansing sources say the, Governor will probably face the Repub-
lican-controlled Legislature tomorrow with his. 1958-59 budget. His
recommendations, which he already his said will be "somewhat
higher" than the current $341,300,000 budget, will include the Uni-
versity's appropriations.
University officials indicate they have already learned there will
be some cuts in their requested budget of $37,274,000 for ollerating,
funds and $11,517,000 for capital*
outlay but say they are unable to
reveal the exact amounts.x

Last night, Rep. George W. Sal-

"so blatantly unfair as to insult
the intelligence of the average

to believe that an industrial state
of such wealth and resources as
Michigan could be, constantly on
the edge of financial chaos.
"In private business, if such a
situation continued to exist, the
stockholders would have long since
fired the management," he said.
Other state legislators expressed
opposition to "any new tax unless
its need is proved beyond a doubt."

Stirton Stresses Education's Duty to Students

University administrators and legislators alike are preparing to
come to grips with "meeting the increased needs of higher educa-
tion in a climate of fiscal restriction-and political uncertainty."
The words came from University Vice-president William Stirton
as he sat in his office reflecting on the immediate and long-range
needs of higher educational communities.
Basically, he believes, educational institutions must recognize
their primary educational responsibiilties "as an integral and indis-
pensable part of the inheritance of the youth of the state which
must not be withheld."
Undertake New Responsibilities
But while the universities must conduct themselves first a uni-

bonds, he asked? The schools
might pledge a certain portion of
tuition fees but this could imply
higher fees, and, since more stu-
dents would mean more fees,
larger enrollments and possible
increased competition between
schools for students might result.
The legislature might be asked
to pay off the bonds, he said, but
would this mean the legislators
would appropriate less money each
year for university operations?

He noted that the legislature last
year adopted a hold-the-line at-
titude in appropriation of new
building funds.
No Construction Funds
As aresult the University was
not given any money to being con-

struction or planning of new build-
ings. The only funds appropriated
were for buildings already under
construction. A similar situation
existed at other schools in the
