John Fraker,, a leader of the Tenant's Union, called the offer \ ••very unacceptable.'? He said •I think something more appro- ' priate than $18 ( approximately one week's rent) can be negotiated." He indicated Tenant's Union representatives are thinking more in terms of $50 ;to $70 The purpose of the canvassing according to-Fraker is 'to get an indication' of how incomplete each apartment was. We dont want to generalize. We want to be exact." \ statements - v ■ Signed statements concerning each apartment's condition this fall and support of the Tenant's Union are the canvassers' goals, as well as "assuring students the Tenant's Union is looking after their interests." According to Fraker the Tenant's Union's ultimate goal is negotiation, but added they are prepared to lead a rent strike. In this event, *the Tenants Union will be their collective bargaining agent," said Dennis Hart, another Tenant's Union leader. The Teharitts Union will engage a lawyer and have an escrow fund set up. The fund, according to the Union's Information Manual is "a bank account in which tenants deposit their money to demonstrate to the landlords and to the courts that the money has been paid and will be available if and when the landlords have bargained in good faith." ' No eviction Hart told " canvassers to emphasize to residents" they cannot be evicted from their apartment's if they join the Te- ^ nants Union." He added, these cases have been well tested in the past." Fraker said it is important that tenants\pf the Forum .up- port and joinlhe Tenant's Union now, since the ^November rent is dje Saturday. "If this month slips by the issue will be dead. It is important that it gets off the ground this week," he said. •«•__.____.__.___.____._• I..".".'. __ _ . :<•:__>:_._ »?•_ osition An amended Student Senate re-, solution to keep the selection of a valedictorian and salutatorian for.
