University officials yesterday
! broke administrative tradition to
discuss budgeting of the General
Fund, the most vital area of Uni-
versity finance,
The fund provides for all basic
operations of the University and
is supplied by appropriations from
the state Legislature, student fees
and a few miscellaneous invest-
ments. Fund money is distribut-
ed for such costs as salaries, li-
braries and other educational
services, supplies and plant main-
Assistant to the Vice-President

for Academic Affairs James E.
Lesch explained that the Univer-
sity receives the legislative ap-
propriation in 12 equal monthly
allotments rather than in one
lump sum. Each month money is
then allocated by the University
Budget Committee to the various
departments according to the
budget approved at the end of the
previous year. Each department
administers its funds independ-
ently, under the eye of the Uni-
versity controller's office.
Lesch said the Budget Commit-
tee, under Regents' bylaws com-
posed of the president, executive
vice-president; the vice-president

for academic affairs and the vice-
president for business and finance,
functions with the aid of a large
number of people in the academic'
affairs and business offices as
well as those from the depart-
ments of all the schools and col-
Assistant Controller H. J. Muld-
er offered a vague characteriza-
tion of the committee as a group
of many individuals reviewing
their work with the president but
having no official status as a
The committee accepts budget

requests from all University de-
partments, decides priorities and
submits a General Fund Budget
request for the entire University
to the Regents and eventually to
the state Legislature.'
The General Fund Budget ap-
proved by the Legislature is then
administered monthly as previ-
ously described. The procedure of
receiving yearly appropriations in
monthly payments is not stipulat-
ed by the Legislature but is the
system of payment preferred by
the Office of Business and Fi-
nance, Lesch said.
Officials for the first time yes-

terday also discussed procedures
for handling unexpected surpluses
and deficits of funds in depart-
mental budgets.
Lesch said that any residual
funds from expected nonteaching
expenses are retained by each
department to be used at its dis-
cretion. He said a certain surplus
in funds set aside for teaching
saliries, due to death, resignation
or early retirement of teachers,
can be predicted to occur each
year. This surplus is reallocated
by the Budget Committee through-
out the year as unforeseen ex-
penses arise.
Mulder further explained the

procedure of caring for 'unfore-
seen expenses." A department
finding it necessary to overspend
its budget presents its case to
the dean of its school or college,
he said. The dean then looks for
surplus funds in other depart-
ments of his school, or finding
none there. may appeal to the
Vice-President for Academic Af-
fairs for use of a special fund set
aside for such emergencies, Mulder
He said that he was not aware
of any schools or colleges that
had run short and were forced to
use this fund last year but that
some were "balancing on end."

The amount a department over-
spends is subtracted from its
budget for the followirg year, he
Mulder mentioned an indirect
connection between the supposed-
ly self-liquidating residence halls
and money. allocated from the
fund for student activities, such
as the Women's League, Men's
Union and athletics.
Officials in the University Hous-
ing Office receive salaries from
the fund, and so the fund may
thus be seen as indirectly aiding
residence hall operation, said John
Feldkamp, assistant to the Vice-
President for Student Affairs. He

also said that counseling provided
in residence halls by house
mothers, resident advisors and
faculty" advisors is supported by
money from the general fund.
He emphasized that a very small
portion of the General Fund is
used for these services and stress-
ed that the residence hall system
is an , essentially self-liquidating
venture operating on room and
board rates charged students. In-
sistence that the administration
of the Housing Office and resi-
dence hall counseling not be pro-
vided for by the General Fund
would necessitate a hike in room
and board rates. he said.

Student Government Council will consider a motion tonight
from Bob Bodkin, '66, to form an off-campus housing union in
an effort to coordinate all groups working on the housing prob-
lem. They will also consider rules for the use of the Fishbowl and
Diag and election rules; all were tabled last week.
Robert H. Muller, associate director of University libraries,
blames recent severe overcrowding in the Undergraduate Library
on two factors. First, all of the new furniture which has been
ordered has not yet arrived, and secondly, he says that many
students leave their notebooks on the desks, and necessary seats
are wasted for hours at a time.

The Committee to Aid the Vietnamese's collection of money
for the National Liberation Front, led by Stanley Nadel, '66, was
charged yesterday with disobeying a government law which states
that all agents of a foreign government must be registered with
the FBI. The University Young Republican Club, making the
charge on the basis that Nadel's committee is a political arm of
the North Vietnamese government, required Vice-President for
Student Affairs Richard Cutler to consult with the United States
District Attorney's office on the applicability of U.S. laws to this
case. Lee Hornberger, '66, will present a similar request to Stu-
dent Government Council tonight. J. Duncan Sells, director of
student activities and organizations, said his office called the
FBI yesterday to find whether or not the National Liberation
Front is on its "subversive" list. He said he was told that the
NLF was not on an earlier list of such orga'nizations, and that
"we have no indication that there has been a change in its
Vice-President for Student Affairs Richard Cutler said last
night that his student advisory housing committee will begin
operation as soon as the panel of names is approved at the SGC
meeting tonight. If all goes well, Cutler said he will make the
official announcement of the new committee members on Friday.

The 1965 construction rate in Ann Arbor is breaking all
previous records, and may exceed the $100 million mark by the
end of the year, according to a Department of Building and
Safety Engineering report. The report states that the University
has already authorized $19.5 million in new construction, and
according to James F. Brinkerhoff, director of plant expansion,
another $32.8 million in new facilities is already planned to be
authorized during the remainder of the year.
Inter-Quadrangle Council President Lee Hornberger, '66,
stated yesterday that his organization was officially opposed to
those proposals before City Council that would limit motorcycle
speedt. to 20 mph and a single rider capacity. Hornberger stated
that the IQC hopes to send letters to the councilmen and Mayor
Wendell Hulcher and to have members in attendance at next
Monday night's council meeting.

Homecoming '65, in cooperation with the University Activities
Center, recently announced its all-campus tryouts for the official
A Go Go Girls. The winners will appear on a float in the Friday
afternoon parade, Oct. 15, and will perform at the dance mn the
IM building that evening. The competition will be held Tuesday,
Sept. 28, at 7 p.m. in Rooms 3R and 3S of the Union.
Sources report that President Harlan H. Hatcher may
announce plans for a new University theatre within a few weeks.

Proposal Demands
Strict Enforcement
Of 01l1, New Laws
Ann Arbor Councilman John
Hathaway's proposed motorcycle
regulation ordinance has stirred
considerable student discontent
ever since its revelation Monday
In addition to restrictions on
the use of such vehicles, the ordi-
nanc-M will impose a $3 per horse-
powfr license fee on each cycle.
Such a fee could amount to $100
per year or more on larger cycles.
In most respects, however, the
ordinance does not call for any
major alterations in the laws al-
ready on the books concerning
such vehicles, although there are
a few important new provisions.
Most of its clauses are aimed sim-
ply at tightening regulation of
laws already passed.
90 Per Cent Law
"My proposal is 90 per cent state
law already," said Hathaway yes-
terday, "but the enforcement
hasn't been carried out because
of the difficulty in distinguishing
between 'motorcycle' and 'motor-
driven cycle'."
The distinction is an important
one and unfortunately wasn't
made in earlier reports of the pro-
posal on Tuesday.
The major difference in the
definition of the two types of
cycles by state law is that the
motor-driven cycle possesses only
five horsepower or less.
Restricted Applications
Several provisions in Hatha-
way's amendment are applicable
only to motor-driven cycles, and
have already been put into law by
the state legislature. These in+.
1) the requirement of a night
operation permit. This stipulates
that no operator of a motor-driven
cycle will be allowed to drive that
cycle at night unless he obtains
a permit from the chief of police,
stating the reason he requests
such a permit.
2) the one person limit. Only
one person will be allowed on a
motor-driven cycle, and both pas-
senger and driver will be deemed
guilty in case of a violation.

Official Predicts Soviets May Give

Brezhnev New Post, Revamp Economy

Associate Editorial Director
Special To The Daily
FLINT-Current rumors of a
coming change in Russian lead-
ership probably presage the ap-
pointment of Communist party
chief Leonid Brezhnev as, presi-
dent of the Soviet Union and a
major restatement of policies on
Russian agriculture and industry,
according to a high State Depart-
ment official.
Walter J. Stoessel, Jr., deputy
assistant secretary of state for
Eastern European affairs, explain-
ed in an interview last night that
the major decisions in the matter
will take place at a meeting of the

pected appointment of Brezhnev
as president-he would retain his
post as head of the Communist
Party-will probably not be due to
the economic problems to be dis-
cussed at tomorrow's Central
Committee meeting.
Rather, its prime purpose will
be to give Brezhnev a post in the
government so he can confer for-
mally with visiting foreign offi-
cials as a government representa-
In addition, Stoessel said the
expected appointment will tend to
ratify the shift of power which
has gradually taken place in the
Soviet Union in recent months,
making Brezhnev the "most equal"
and most powerful member of the

ly Stalin era.
Until the recent apparent as-
cendency of Brezhnev, he and So-
viet Premier Alexei Kosygin were

With regard to economic mat-
ters, Stoessel said there is a good
chance the Central Committee will
vote to abolish some of the pres-
ent regional economic controls,
giving more responsibility to man-
agers of individual factories.
In addition, the committee will
probably decide "where to get
the money to finance the Soviet
agricultural plan which was an-

recent swift rise in power by mov-
ing up to a more prominent post.
"But the possibility of this is
small because of Shelepin's youth,"
Stoessel said. Older Soviet lead-
ers are probably not yet ready to
allow him to rise further in the
Shelepin has in the past been
the head of the Young Communist
League and of the Soviet secret
police. At present, he is head of
the Committee on Party-State
Control, "a powerful post which
allows him to probe into almost
anything he wants," Stoessel said.
The Central Committee meet-
ing will almost certainly be fol-
lowed by a meeting of the party

if they make conciliatory moves,
they will lose standing among the
world's Communist parties.
One specific proposal being,

Referring to the Vietnamese
war, Harriman called it an "im-
ported rebellion," and cited a re-
cent Soviet document which ex-
pressed support for other guerrilla
activities in Venezuela, Colombia,
Guatemala and Peru.

ence besides Harriman and Stoes-
sel were William P. Buffum, dep-
