ursuit of enough to discourage out-of-state
certainly students."
Faculty members also expressed
concern over the University's fi-
nancial situation.
Prof. Peter Bauland of the Eng-
lish department, who is associat-
ed with the American Association

of University Professors, com-
mented, "This budget makes
things very grim. Salary wise, we
could start to slip out of the
league we play in with another
year like this. Commitments have
already been made for new pro-
fessor's salaries-the existing pro-
fessors are the ones that don't
know what they'll be getting."
"Our rating as far as salary
could go down nationally," he
commented, "and we could become
more vulnerable to loss of our pro-
fessors. However, money alone will
not cause a man to leave. Space,
clerical help, and good students

are inducements to teach at a
school as much as money is."
Dean Gordon Van Wylen of the
Engineering College, said "With
out the resources of a larger bud-
get, we can't move into new areas
we should such as computer tech-
nology, space research, or ocean
engineering. Right now we're
handicapped by lack of equipment
-it will be more of a problem now.
Another year like this would be
devastating."
Prof. Wilbert McKeachie, chair-
man of the psychology depart-
ment, also said that clerical help
was the worst shortage in his de-

partment now and any cut would
be "terrible."
President designate of the Uni-
versity Robben Fleming said he
was not familiar enough with our
budget to comment on the effects
of the low figure, although he has
recently been through the same
thing in Wisconsin.
"I am very disappointed aboutl
it," he said.
Dean James Robertson of the
literary college,-new director of the
Residential C o11e g e, said he
thought the Residential College
won't suffer from the state appro-
priation this year. But, he added,
"Now that there is a better tax
base, the state of Michigan could
have supported the University with
more confidence and generosity."

Text of Hatcher's
Recommendation
It is recommended that the
Regents authorize payment of
the July 1967 payrolls and the
continuation of other July op-
erations, subject tothe final
determination of all sources of
revenue for 1967-68, including
an adjustment of the student
fee schedules.
In considering the fee sched-
ule changes, we intend to be
sure that no University of
Michigan student will be pre-
vented from continuing his ed-
ucation because of insufficient
financial support.
