Regents Approve
Record Budget
Total is 14 Million over Last Year;
Priority Given to Faculty Salaries
Thanks to increases in state appropriations, federal funds and
student fees, the Regents Friday approved a record University
budget of $147,277,386 for the year 1964-65.
The budget totals $12,663,354 more than the Vniversity's total
revenue of $134,614,032 for the year ending this month, and is
the largest budget for any college or university in Michigan.
" University President Harlan
Hatcher told the Regents that
first priority on the additional
funds has been given to providing
selective salary and wage in-
creases and recognition of profes-
sional advancement for the fac-
ulty and staff. In May the Re-
f gents approved promotions for 224
faculty members.

budget a little more commen-

The former director of Univer-
sity Relations was promoted into
a vice-presidential chair by the
Regents at their Friday meeting.
The promotion fills a post left
vacant since 1961 when the then
Vice-President for University Re-
lations Lyle M. Nelson resigned to
take a similar position at Stan-
ford University in California.
The promotion brings the Uni-
versity executive staff up to its
full complement of seven vice-
presidents and a secretary under
President Harlan Hatcher.

Vice-President Ralph A. Sawyer,
who holds the major posts of
vice-president for research and
dean of the Graduate School, and
who was scheduled to go on re-

continue his duties, however, be-
cause the Regents did not make
the appointments to the two posts.

Local Ruling
Takes Similar Action
In Eight Other Cases
The United States Supreme
Court yesterday reversed a three-
judge Federal Court panel in
Michigan which had upheld a Re-
publican - backed apportionment
formula in line with the state con-
The ruling came on the same
day that the state's highest court
did essentially the same thing by
reversing its own earlier decision
to approve the same plan.
The GOP plan, submitted to the
;tate court by party members of
the Legislative Apportionment
Commission and appealed by Dem-
ocrats to the Supreme Court,
would have established districts for
the House of Representatives on a
strictly-population basis and for
the Senate on 80 per cent by
population and 20 per cent by land
Eight Other Suits
The U.S. court passed on similar
suits in eight other states, all
in line with its historic decision
of June 15.
In that earlier ruling it stated
that both of a state's houses hadt
to be apportioned by population
"as nearly as practicable."h u
In an Alabama case the court
ruled last week that "By holdingl
that as a federal constitutionalj
requisite both houses of a state
legislature must be apportioned ont
a population basis. we mean thatz
the equal protection clause re-
quires that a state make an hon-
Est and good faith effort to con-
struct districts, in both houses
of its legislature, as nearly of
equal population as is practicable."
No Specific Remedies
The court did not, however, in-f
dicate specific remedies in each of
the six cases. It left lower courts
some leeway in deciding whetherF
to apply the reapportionment rul-
ing to this year's elections or give
the states more time to work out
a new system.

The Michigan Supreme Court

of the deadlocked Legislative Ap-
portionment Commission. The

Invaded b
By The Associated Press
Some 200 students I'invaded"
Mississippi yesterday to register
Negro voters-but the big news
was about three of their clan who
weren't there.
The students, about seven of
whom are from the University, had
just completed a week's training
session sponsored by the National
Council of Churches and the
Council of Federated Organiza-
tions (COFO), an alliance of civil
rights groups.
But reports from Jackson, Miss.,
indicated that three of the group,
two whites and a Negro, were
missing after paying a $20 speed-
ing fine in nearby Philadelphia
Sunday night.
Begin Search
State and federal officers began
a search for the three missing
volunteer workers.
A spokesman for the COFO said
the organization had been assured
that the FBI had entered the
search. The civil rights group pre-
viously had criticized the FBI on
the grounds that it had not moved
in promptly to investigate.
In Oxford, Ohio, several hun-
dred student members of a second
volunteer class, in training at the
Western College for Women, had
wired their congressmen to help
start a search for the missing vol-
unteers. The FBI has been ordered
to investigate the possibility that
the trio is being detained by people
not law enforcement officers or be-
ing deprived of their civil rights.
Overall aspirations of , both
classes of volunteers include:
1) An all-out effort to mobilize
the Negro community and develop
local leadership and organization
for c o n t i n u i n g registration
2) Establishment of at least 13
"Freedom Schools" to provide
Negroes with basic political edu-
cation unavailable in public
3) Setting up community cen-
ters to provioe further educational
and cultural programs for com-

increases in salary, for additional
faculty and staff members we
need, and for the equipment that
has been lacking."
Regent Eugene B. Power of Ann
Ann Arbor said that "this budget
will help us catch up." Regent
William B. Cudlip of Detroit noted,
"I am happy that the governor
and the Legislature responded
when the economy permitted it."
The budget is divided into three
main sections: the general fund
of $59,031,739; the "expendable
restricted" fund of $53,300,000;
and the auxiliary activities fund
of. $34,945,647.
General Fund
The general fund, which covers
teaching, research, public services,;
student advisory services, business
operations and normal physical
plant maintenance, is up $6,854,-
484 from last year.
One source of this increase is
the state appropriation of $44,-
086,139, up $5,860,884 from last
year. Another source is an antici-
pated increase of $993,600 in stu-
dent fees, based on an expected
1400-student enrollment gain.
The "expendable restricted"
fund encompasses money desig-
nated by law or other agreement
of presentation to the University
to be spent in a specified manner.
The largest figure in this area is
the estimated $42 million the Uni-
versity expects to receive in grants
and contracts from the federal
government for instruction and
This will be an increase from
the $38 million received .from the
government last year. Gifts and
grants from individuals, corpora-
tions and foundations are expected
to amount to $7 million, while in-
vestment and departmental in-
oome are estimated at $4,300,000.
The third division of the budget,
the auxiliary activities fund, in-
cludes $16,744,000 for University
hospital; $8,364,222 of gross in-
come from the residence halls;
and about $5,100,000 representing
gross operating funds for the
Michigan League, the Michigan
Union, Intercollegiate athletics,
the University Press and Student
Also included in this fund are,
$3,758,300 for mental health ac-'
tivities, of which $3,176,000 is ap-
propriated by the state. This in-
cludes funds for the Neuropsychia-
tric Institute, the Children's Psy-
chiatric Hospital and the Mental
Health Research Institute.

Appointments of a new dean for
the architecture college, an asso-
ciate dean for the literary college
and an associate dean of the
school of social work were ap-
proved by the Regents at their
meeting last Friday.
Prof. Reginald F. Malcolmson
of the Illinois Institute of Tech-
nology architecture department
was named dean of the architec-
ture college, effective Sept. 1. He
also was appointed professor of
He will succeed Dean Philip N.f
Youtz, who is going on retirement
furlough after serving as head of
the college since 1957.
Associate Dean
Prof. William L. Hays of the
psychology department was ap-
pointed associate dean of the Uni-
versity's largest school, the liter-
ary college, effective Aug. 24. He
will retain his title of professor
of psychology.
He succeeds Associate Dean
Burton D. Thuma, also a professor
of psychology, who was appointed
director of the University's pro-
posed residential college last April.
Thuma has served as associate'
dean since 1951.
Prof. Robert D. Vinter was ap-
pointed to the newly-created post
of associate dean of the school
of social work, effective June 1.

Vinter, who joined the faculty in
1954, has been a professor of social
work since 1961.
Malcolmson is a native of Dub-
lin, Ireland. He attended the Bel-
fast College of Technology and
was a student at the royal in-
stitute of British Architects. He
was granted a master of science
degree in architecture in 1949 by
the Illinois Institute of Tech-
In 1963 he was appointed an ex-
ecutive committee member of the
Metropolitan Studies Center of
the Institute. He has lectured ex-
tensively on architecture and city
planning in this country and

Hays was born in 1926 in
Clarksville, Texas. He was award-
ed a PhD degree at the University
in 1935. Hays was a teaching
assistant, teaching fellow, and re-
search assistant from 1951-54 at
the University. He was promoted
to assistant professor in 1956, and
subsequently to associate professor
and full professor.
In recommending Vinter's ap-
pointment to the Regents, Dean
Fidele F. Fauri of the school of
social work pointed out that en-
rollment in social work has been
increasing steadily, justifying the
establishment of the new post of
associate dean in the school.
