Financial Problems Hinder


"The state of Michigan has not
kept pace with the total national
picture of higher education," ex-
plains Vice-President for Aca-
demic Affairs Allan F. Smith.
"Because of the Legislature's
small appropriation to the Uni-
versity this year, there will be
no - or very limited - recruit-
ing of new faculty for next year.
Until more money is available,
we can't spend it."
A university's reputation is
based on the quality and size of
its faculty. And recruitment is the
lifeblood of a faculty, compen-
sating for retirements, increases
in enrollment and "raiding"
from other colleges and univer-
In the past, the University has
actively engaged in advance re-
cruiting of new faculty members.
Following standard practice new
professors were recruited from

other university staffs and from
the annual crop of new PhD's
emerging from the nation's top
graduate schools.
The prime factor for a pro-
fessor in deciding at which school
to teach is salary. However, money
is only part of the question. It
may take an offer that is $5,000
above the salary a professor re-
ceives at another school to lure
him away. Many professors will
not come to the University for
only a larger salary.
The relative prestige of the edu-
cational institution, general sec-
tion of the country and atmo-
sphere of the city in which the:
school is located are also major
factors. Office space, staff, and
even the quality of the student
body may also be important fac-

However, Davis and at-large
member Judy Greenberg, '68, com-
mented that "it is extremely
doubtful that the Regents' con-
stitutional authority to govern the
internal affairs of the University
can be extended to infringe upon
the legislative right to tax and
license. Therefore we are not doing
away with Regental authority,"
[they continued. "Rather, we are
refusing to join an almost cer-
tainly illegal extension of it."
Sources indicate that state At-
torney General Frank Kelley will
render an opinion on the issue in
the near future.
And Ken Mogill, '68, head of
the Student Traffic Court (STC)
observed, "STC will only recognize
rules made by the proper student
authority. In this case. SGC is
the proper student authority."
STC, a lower court of Joint
Judiciary Council, hears all cases
of alleged infractions of student
vehicle regulations. JJC has since
last April consistently refused to
enforce rules unless students have
passed them.
When SGC earlier this year
threw out the University Regula-
tions-of which student vehicle
regulations were a part-it incor-
porated the University's rules into
its own "upon condition of study."

mit that a parking problem will
ensue, although they feel the Uni-

Mogill noted, "Enforcement In
the past has been so impractical
