working relationship with the

Robben Fleming has said he con-
siders"such a working relationship
vital to the vice president.
The tentative proposal drafted
by SOC and SACUA to be present-
ed to the Regents by SGC and
SACUA, at the April meeting if
possible, softens the adamant stu-
dent-faculty stand on the Student
Service Policy Board. The proposal
states that if the vice president
for student services and the pol-
icy board do not agree on the
resoluon of a policy issue, "im-
plementation of that issue will
be delayed until the issue has
been resolved, by an agreement
jbetween the vice president and the
kpolicy board."
The tentative proposal also in-
cludes a revised provision on OSS
policy approval. It states that on
matters where OSS policy is sub-
jet to approval' at higher levels,
"the Vice President and the Policy
Board may present their views to
the executive officers, and if the
occasion demands, the Board of
'',Regents."
"We will not compromise on the
provisions for the Student Services
Policy Board because we see this
as Athe essence of the student's
right to control his own organiza-
tions and affairs," says Jerry De-
Grieck, SGC executive vice pres-
file t
"e feel that the vice pesident
_must be an effective laison be-
tween the administration and the
students. He must be a fighter
for student needs,'t DeGrieck says.

g e n e r a 1 fund operating budget
totaling $126.7 million. This would
be $15.5 million higher than this
year's budget.
The state was asked to allocate
$84 million to the general fund,
which would provide $15 million
of the $15.5 million increase.
However ,the governor recom-
mended only $75.7 million for the
University. This figure, if adopted
by the Legislature, would allow
only a $6.7 million increase in
general fund expenditures, if there
is no increase in tuition.
The $6.7 million would cover
little more than a projected in-
crease in salary and staff bene-
fits totaling $6.45 million, which
is high on the administration's
priority list.
This would leave about $250,000
to cover $8.5 million of projected
increases in general fund expendi-
tures for 1970-71. Although many
of the increases would be dropped,
administrators say that certain
"essential" expenditures must be
funded.
For example, inflation on non-
salary goods would require an in-
crease of $966,000 in next years'
general fund.
In addition, the general fund
must provide the $500,000 increase
in the Opportunity Awards Pro-
gram which was approved by the
Regents as part of their minority
enrollment plan.
The tuition increases would be
required to defray the costs of
these general. fund increases, as
well as others which the admin-
istration chooses to retain.
Currently, the state Senate is
considering the governor's recom-
mended 1970-71 'state budget, out
of which will come the appropri-
ation to the University.
The Senate Appropriations
Committee held a hearing last
month on the University's ap-
propriation request. It has not yet
reported out a recommendation to
the Senate floor, however.
Meanwhile, University admin-
istrators have been holding meet-
ings with influential state legis-
lators In an effort to keep the
University's appropriation at least
as high as the .governor's recom-
mendation. - There is considerable
concern among administrators
that the Legislature's reluctance
to approve a tax increase during
an election year will result in a
lower appropriation than the
governor requested.

Since 1960, more than 5,000 student apartment units have been
area by private developers. These units were built in response to4
ing regulations, demand for student apartments, favorable City
and adequate mortgage financing.

During the first part of 1968,' construction of student apartments come to a virtual halt. The
cause of this was primarily due to unavailability of adequate mortgage financing and high
land cost. The need for additional student housing units in the campus area is self evident
and indications are that the availability of mortgage financing will improve in the near future,
however, do not expect a revival of student apartment building in the central campus area.
The reason for this is that the present proposed R-4 Report, which has passed first reading
of the City Council, is so restrictive where it pertains to the campus area that it does not make
development economically feasible.
The R-4C zoning classification covers approximately 90 percent of non-public land in the
campus area. Practically all land in the campus area is comprised of small lots frequently
of irregular configurations and improved with, older dwellings being rented as rooming houses
or converted apartments. The value of this land is based on the income being produced by
the improvements. Consequently, land costs in the campus area are very high and it is diffi-
cult to assemble several contiguous parcels, resulting in small apartment buildings. Most,
campus apartment buildings contain from 7 to 20 units per building.
The proposed 4-4C section of the proposed R-4 Report substantially reduces the buildable
land area due to its increase in setback requirements, 40 percent usable open space provision
and increased parking requirements. . We must encourage the building of more housing in
the campus area to bring about the lowering of rents or at least to prevent increases in rents.
The City is making this task difficult, if not impossible, thru is proposed zoning regulations.
I would recommend a special zoning classification be assigned to the campus area because
of the high population density and the nature of the tenancy; groups of unrelated people
occupying a single apartment unit. This kind of density and tenancy requires more open
space and more parking facilities than are presently required or will be required under the
proposed zoning regulations.

The zoning classification, which I would support, would reduce
setbacks, eliminate the usable open space, requirements, since
poorly maintained un-usable patches of grass, and eliminate
parking.

I would allow more intense development of the site and I would require the developer to
make a financial contribution to a land acquisition pool, maintained by the City, the amount
to be based on the number of units he is able to build on a particular site. These funds would
be used by the City to acquire land, build and develop neighborhood parking lots and usable
open spaces., These open spaces would be of a reasonable size for recreation and, further,
it would insure better maintenance of space. The parking lots would be in the immediate
vicinity of the buildings whose developers have contributed to the land acquisition pool and
could serve more than one building. These lots would be operated and maintained by the City.
