According to Grosline, the legis-
lature thought all outstate stu-
dents were now paying only 55
per cent of the cost of their educa-
tion, and computed the amount
to be gained from a tuition in-
crease to 75 per cent on this basis.
Grosline pointed out this is not

schools, and many students pay

a much higher percentage than
the legislature realized.
The result is that when tuition
is raised so that all outstate stu-
dents end up paying for 75 per
cent of the costs they incur, the
gain to the University will be $1.6
million less than the legislature
originally thought. This is the
i amount Grosline anticipates the
Committee will return to the Uni-
versity appropriation.
SGC president Mike Koeneke,
'69BAd, said one of the problems
in dealing with the legislators is
their distrust of the University
due to some of its past use of
funds. While nothing specific was
mentioned, the feeling seems to
