U' Economist Calculates Excess
Of $50 Million in State Revenues I
Sen. Sander Levin (D-Berkeley) said yesterday Michigan's revenue
surplus will be closer to $50 million than the $5 million predicted
by Gov. George Romney.
Levin urged that Romney request appropriations for schools and
slum rehabilitation programs in next month's special session of the
Levin bases his expectation on a study done by Prof. Harvey
Brazer of the economics department.
Brazer said the discrepancy between his figures and Romney's
comes from the fact that the Governor's predictions are based on'

its financial aid to graduate stu-

schools including the University's

the Ford Foundation told of its
proposed cutbacks in Wilson Foun-
dation aid.

given $27.5 million to the Wilson

said Weir.
"The duplicates were made out

recovered 26 fake tickets from
last week's Duke game.
The suspect allegedly sold the
Duke game tickets to fellow Ann

in turn sold them. to unsuspecting
customers outside 'the stadium

"Right now, we're still working
on six or seven other non-college
students who may have been in-

"It looks like the forger took
about 30 tickets for each game

At a meeting on September 15,
the university's board of regents
voted unanimously over Moos' ob-
jections to renew the classified

two years.
The regents originally approved

His recommendation was ac-
cepted without opposition,. except
from Moos, a former speechwriter
for President Eisenhower. Moos
said he was "disturbed" -about
secret work at universities and
wanted "the minutes of this meet-
ing to reflect my concern."
Moos said, "basically, I am op-
posed to such research because it
tends to guide the direction of free
inquiry" within the Academic com-
munity and concerns an area in
which "you know so little and have
so little control." '
Moos agreed that the govern-
ment has to conduct military re-
search, but said it should be done
in "thin tanks" or by private in-
dustry. Moos said that he is "on
