Heads of HUC, RUS To Back Rent Strike

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Striking tenants in an apartment project on Boston's South End will receive support from the presidents of the Harvard Undergraduate Council and the Radcliffe Union of Students tomorrow.

John D. Hanify '71, president of HUC, and Ellen Messer '69, president of RUS, will join the heads of student government at nine local colleges--including B.U., B.C. and M.I.T.--in a show of support for the tenants, who are withholding rent payments to force concessions from their landlord about maintenance of the building.

The group will meet at the apartment building on Rutland St. at 10 a.m. tomorrow morning. "We'll help clean up for a few hours in order to understand what the tenants want, and then hold a press conference," Hanify said.
