Blacks present demands to Fleming ALLOT $75.

'U'financal support
Black students presented demands last night to President
Robben Fleming and Student Government Council for in-
creased recruitment of black students and faculty, increased
financial aids and supportive services, and expansion of the
black studies program and center. L
Specifically, the demands, which were drawn up at a
mass meeting of black students Wednesday night, call for:
-The admission of at least 9O0 new black students next

Gov. William Milliken asked the State Legislature yes-
terday to appropriate $75.7 million to the University's general
fund for the 1970-71 fiscal year - $8.3 million less than the
University had requested.
The governor's recommendation was contained in his
annual budget message to the Legislature, which called for
total state expenditures of $1.737 billion.
University officials were reluctant to speculate yesterday
whether the lower figure requested by Milliken - if adopted
by the Legislatu'e - would make a tuition increase for the

for Academic Affairs Allan
LANSING IB - Gov. Wil-
liam Milliken recommended
to the State Legislature yes-
terday a $1.737 billion general
fund budget for 1970-71, say-
ing his figures reflected a
sagging economy and antici-
pated strikes in the auto in-
dustry this fall.
The proposals marked a $197.1
million increase over current
spending, with $35 million desig-
nated for new programs.
But the increase served notice
of economic slump, totaling only
12.8 per cent more than this year's
budget, compared with average 19
per cent annual increases over the
last five years.
More than 52 per cent - $898.4
million - of Milliken's proposed
budget would go for education,
$334 million for welfare and $208.8
million for mental health.
Milliken warned lawmakers that
his general f u n d budget faced
tightening to the point of "aus-"
terity," however,if they. failed to
raise $143 million in additional
revenue this year.
Budget director Glenn S. Allen
Jr. said such a failure would elim-
inate a budgeted $17.6 million
surplus and could throw the state
$125 million in debt,
But Milliken said that before
that happened he would have "no
alternative but to submit to the
Legislature a formal austerity
"Under the state constitution,
spending in any given year may
not exceed available revenues and
accumulated surplus," Milliken
noted. "In the proposed budget,
existing resources are $143 million
less than. proposed expenditures."
Without increases, the Governor
said, the state would have to cut
funds from such. programs as
school aid, university and com-
munity college grants and pay-
ments to senior citizens and veter-
ans-programs which he said ac-
count for 80 per cent of state
The Governor again called for
the. passage of revenue bills pro-
posed in his earlier (State of the
State) message. They included a
four cent hike in the seven-cent-
a-pack cigarette tax, closing so-
called "loopholes" in the sales and
use tax exemption rolls, and par-
:tial elimination of the property
tax credit against the income tax.

Some fifty students prepared

Robben Fleming with demands
