CHICAGO - "History will
hold it's breath," while the
'Chicago 7' trial jury is de-,
liberating, defense attorney
Leonard Weinglass concluded.
in his final argument yester-
Weinglass called upon the jury
to "do what is right," and acquit
the seven radical leaders, who he
said were victims of "a great
wrong"-prosecution 'of the men
who were themselves the victims
of official misconduct."
The defense lawyer was sec-
onded by his associate William
Kunstler who managed to tell the
jury-before being silenced by a
r:{};sustained objection-that "We are
all on the docks, because what
happens to these men happens to
all of us.'
In y e s t e r d a y's presentation,
Kunstler tried unsuccessfully to
give the jury an historical per-

made prior to the Democratic
Convention by the Yippies, and

The probability of a tuition increase,
for the next academic year has increas-
ed sharply since Gov. William Milliken
submitted to the State Legislature his
request for a state appropriation to the
University's general fund for the 1970-
71 academic year.
According to Vice President for Aca-
demic Affairs Allan Smith, the gover-
nor's request, 'if adopted by the Legis-
lature, would leave projected revenues
at $3 million less than the amount re-
quired to balance the general fund bud-
get proposed by the governor.
"What is . clear is that we could
not produce the necessary level of re-
venues without a modification of the
fee income," Smith said.
A tuition increase would be the third
in the last four years. Smith said yester-
day that he could not speculate on the

amount of any increase at this time.
The governor proposed a $121.3 mil-
lion general fund operating budget for
the University. Milliken's budget called
for a state appropriation to the general
fund of $75.7 million with the remain-
ing $45.6 million to come from other
University sources of revenue - in-
cluding tuition.
University administrators estimate
that these sources will bring in only
$42.6 million next year. The $3 million
gap, Smith said, would have to be made
up, at least in part, by a tuition in-
The $121.3 million general fund
budget proposed by Milliken was $5.4
million less than the budget requested
by the University for 1970-71.
If the University decides to add part
of the $5.4 million to the general fund
budget, the gap between general fund
income and expenditures would go

above the $3 million mark. That would
necessitate an even larger fee increase,
Smith said.
Such an additional increase seems
likely since University administrators
say certain budgeted items are essential
and must be funded.
"The governor's budget," Smith said,
"doesn't allow one nickle for increased
student financial aids." Greater finan-
cial aid is one of the key demands sub-
mitted by black students in their pro-
posal for increased minority admissions.
In a related development, Smith dis-
elosed that the governor's budget mess-
age raised the possibility that out-of-
state students would be required begin-
ning next year to pay 75 per cent of the
cost of their education.
"We believe that in estimating insti-
tutional revenue necessary to fund the
governor's budget, he has anticipated a
fee increase based upon a policy which

would require non-residents to pay 75
per cent of the cost of instruction,"
Smith said.
The percentage currently paid by out-
of-state students is unclear, Smith said,
because there are several different meth-
ods for calculating the figure.
"By one method, the share paid by
non-residents does not equal 75 per
cent," he added. "There are other meth-
ods, however, which could reach dif-
ferent results."
The question of a tuition increase is
complicated by a new state law which
requires the University to declare the
amount of a fall tuition increase by
April 15, or face a reduction in the state
appropriation by an amount matching
the increase.
The statute is contained in the Higher
Education Appropriations Act of 1969,
and is expected to be retained in the
1970 act.

Fleming sees



In minority, i
President Robben Fleming said yesterday he was in
agreement with "the merits" of proposals by black students
for increased minority admissions, but warned that funding
the program would be "very difficult."
The main problem, Fleming said, would be to locate funds
to cover the costs of financial aid to minority students which
is necessary to enable many minority students to enroll at
the University.
Fleming was reacting to a list of demands presented last
week by the Black Action ----
Movement - a coalition of
black student groups.
The list included demands for:I

The executive committee of the
political science department yes-
terday rejected a proposal made
Wednesday night by the depart-
ment's protesting graduate stu-
,The students had called for the
department to negotiate both an
earlier decision to reduce the de-
partment's budgetary allocation
for teaching fellowships and a list
of other grievances.
Prof. Jack Walker Jr., a member
of the executive committee, said
it was the committee's feeling that
the decision to reallocate the fel-
lowship funds was "not rescind-
able." The funds will be used, un-
der the plan, to permit the hiring
of additional faculty members.
In protest of the decision, made
last October, an ad hoc group of
graduate students in the depart-
ment claiming to represent all of
the department's teaching fellows
has conducted a moratorium on
the teaching of recitation sections
this week.
The executive committee had
made an earlier offer to the stu-
dents to negotiate other demands
which include the establishment
of a graduate committee with orig-
inal jurisdiction over financial
matters affecting graduate stu-
dents. A pre-condition to this
offer, however, was acceptance by
the graduate students of the Oc-
tober decision to cut graduate fe)-
The students turned down the
proposal Wednesday night and
voted not to accept any precondi-
tions to further discussions. Walk-
er said, however, that the offer
"is still open."

man of the department, will re-

The rejection was approved
unanimously by the executive
