$348 hike in out-state tuition will

A mailing campaign will ask
5000 select alumni to write their
representatives and urge the Leg-
islature to restore the cuts.
Koeneke said that a basic rea-
son for student involvement in
this area is that "students can

force than the University. I doubt
that the University can have much
effectiveness at this point. In-

that once an individual completes
a Michigan education, whether or
not he remains in the state -
and contributes his talents to the
state's' welfare - is not a fun-

fore entering school.
In other action, SGC abolished
the Student Traffic Advisory
Board (STAB). Mike Davis, Grad,
called the move "another sign
that traffic regulations for stu-
dents are over and done with."
Abolishing STAB reaffirms the
position taken by SGC last week
that Council will have nothing to
do with any reinstitution of driv-
ing regulations.

lations, so there isn't any need

Looming over these problems is
the fact that Americans today
