Regents To Meet Today
To Reveal Tuition Boost

Threaten s





The University Regents will meet
at 2 p~m. today to announce a
tuition hike and approve a fin-
al figure for the 1967-68 operat-
ing budget.
The Regents held an extended
series of talks yesterday to dis-
cuss what one Regent termed "an
inexhaustible supply of factors"
which have to be considered be-
fore a tuition hike is finalized.
Attention was focused on the
size of the increase, its effect
on the University revenue sources
for the year and the current ra-
tio between resident and non-resi-
dent tuition.
The afternoon meeting is open
to the public and will be held in
the Regent's Conference Room of
the Administration Building.
The increase could be more
than $100 for in-state and $300 for
out-of-state students. Wayne State

University recently raised their
tuition by those figures because+
of low state allocations and the
University has an even larger;
budget deficit.
The administration has said1
that the $59.1 million allocated to
the University by the state Legis-
lature this year is below the min-
imum required to continue opera-
tions without cutbacks in pro-
grams and a freeze on salary lev-
The amount was the smallest
percentage increase given to any+
of the state's colleges and its rep-

None of the Regents would com-
ment directly as to how much the1
increase would be, but they said
that there would most likely be
general agreement after a morn-
ing session in which the complete

financial problem will be explain-
ed in detail.
The University has been oper-
ating without an official budget
since last Monday. The adminis-
tration has said that there will be
no problem with payrolls and ex-
penses for the week, because they
were all figured on the basis of
last year's budget which had been
extended through the month of
The Difference between mini-
mum necessary University expen-
ditures for next year and the sum
of state appropriations and stu-
dent fees will be the basis of the
tuition hike decision. Between
three and four million dollars can
only be made up in student fees
this year because of a lack of
funds in the state treasury.
Eight Raise Tuition
Eight of the 12 state-supported
colleges and universities have al-
ready announced tuition increases
ranging from $60 to $100 in-state
and from $100 to $300 out-of-
state. Michigan State University
has instituted a resident fee sys-
tem based upon the student's abil-
ity to pay; students whose fam-
ilies are in high income brackets
will have to pay as much as $146
more this year.
The factors cited for the tuition
hikes at other schools have been
the need to raise faculty salaries
by at least five per cent in order
to recruit and hold top quality
professors and the rising costs of
materials and general labor as
well. The University has already
raised residence hall fees and
apartment rental charges to meet
rising costs.

Fifield Cable Dispatch
Asks Reconsideration
Sixty Russian scholars sched-
uled to attend the 27th Interna-
tional Orientalists Congress at
the University Aug. 13-20 have
cancelled their trip in view of
international tensions.
The head of the delegation,
Yevgeny Zhukov, vice president
of the International Union of
Orientalists, said Friday the
Soviet scientists will stay home
because the organizational com-
mittee rejected a Soviet request
that the conference be postponed
"to a more favorable time."
The request was made on July
27, according to Zhukov, because
of international tensions aggra-
vated by "the recent escalation of
the U.S. war in Vietnam and Is-
rael's aggression against Arab
countries supported by U.S. ruling
circles, made it hard for scholars
from a number of Afro-Asian
nations to attend the Congress."
Zhukov apparently referred to

Atty.-Gen. Outlines Steps
For Federal Riot Control

Ramsey Clark sent letters to the
50 governors yesterday outlining
the steps they must take to get
federal troops if they are unable
to control riots.
In making the letter public the
attorney general said in a state-
ment it was "not written in the
expectation of any situation re-
quiring federal troops."
Clark said the three-page letter,
accompanied by applicable sec-
tions of federal law and a chron-
ological listing of state requests
for federal assistance in suppres-
sing domestic violence, was writ-
ten at President Johnson's request.
Legal Requirements
Clark said the letter will advise
each governor of the legal require-
ments for using fedral troops to
put down domestic violence. He
listed as the three basic require-
1. That a situation of serious
"domestic violence" exist within
the state.
2. That such violence cannot be
brought under control by the law
enforcement resources available to
the governor, including local and
state police forces and the Na-
tional Guard. The judgment re-
quired here is that there is need
for the assistance of federal
troops, taking into account the re-
maining time needed to move

them into action at the scene of
3. That the legislature or the
governor request the President to
mploy the armd forces to bring
the violence under control.
Written Communication
The letter said the three ele-
ments should be contained in a
written communication to the
President. This may be a telegram.
But Clark added that in case of
extreme emergency, the receipt of
a written request will not be a
prerequisite to presidential action.
Clark said also that preliminary
steps, such as alerting the troops,
can be taken by the federal gov-
ernment "upon all communica-
tions and prior to the governor's
determination that the violence
cannot be brought under control
without the aid of federal forces."
'Serious Departure'
But he added that even such
preliminary steps "represent a
most serious departure from our
traditions of local responsibility
for law enforcement. They should

secretary general of the congress,
dispatched a telegram to the U.S.-
S.R. Academy of Sciences asking
its reconsideration "in the in-

He indicated yesterday that no
further developments on the sit-

of Pennsylvania, arrives in Ann

PRESIDENT OF GRADUATE ASSEMBLY Roy Ashmall announced at a news conference yeste
that students living in University housing for married students would withhold the $10 per mi
increase in rent primarily because they had not been given sufficient notification of the hike.

Sends Resolution
To Regents' Meeting
Over 2,000 residents of North
Campus married student housing
have signed a petition threatening
a rent strike if a recently-an-
nounced $10 per month increase
in rent is not delayed until at least
Jan. 1.
The executive council of Grad-
uate Assembly organized the pro-
test by drawing up and circulating
the petition. It also passed a reso-
lution on the issue which it hopes
the administration will present to
thetRegents at today's 2 p.m.
Roy Ashmall, president of GA,
said yesterday at a press confer-
ence, "Our purpose is to question
if the University must charge as
much as private housing in Ann
Arbor, and yet not treat married
students as private housing does
by giving them 60 days notice be-
fore raising rents."
Withold Increase
The petition states that res-
idents are prepared to "withhold
the amount of increase in rents
until adequate notice is given of
an increase.
sacks The new rents for the apart-
rday ments would be $95 per month for
onth an efficiency apartment; $110 per
month for a one bedroom apart-
-..ment; and $125 per month for a
two-bedroom apartment.
The 900residents affected by
the increase were first informed
by letter Aug. 1. By that time most
of them had signed contracts with
the University.
Residents must give the Univer-
sity 60 days notice before break-
ing a housing contract. Even if
students were willing to break
