'egents Approve Record $167.63 Million Bu


1II c acv
STUD N'° UPp LIS iiz

The Regents discussed the re-
vised budget figures at their Sep-
tember meeting, and on October
23 approved a general funds bud-
get of $72.28 million. The $72.28
million, which represented a total
increase of $13.24 million, in-
cluded a $55.73 million state ap-
propriation request.
The general funds budget then
slipped out of the news until Gov.
George Romney delivered his an-
nual budget message to the Legis-
lature in February; this caused a
minor explosion.
Romney proposed to allocate
only $50.35 million for the Uni-
-versity, and President Hatcher
promptly condemned the govern-
or's reduction. While the Univer-
sity still would have received more
money than any other state school,
Hatcher pointed out that Romney
had recommended only a 13.7 per
cent increase over 1964-65 com-
pared to a 19.4 per cent average
for the nine other state institu-
The Democrat-dominated legis-
lature, however, quickly killed the
Governor's budget proposal and
sent the question of higher educa-
tion appropriations to the Senate
Appropriations Committee. The
committee issued its rpcommenda-
tion in April; using the Governor's
February proposal as a base, it
added $900,000 for faculty salaries
and $285,000 for expansion of the
University's Flint College branch.
The Senate approved this $51.3
million amount in May, and, after
a heated controversy which almost,
cost the University $6.5 million,
the House followed suit in late

Anticipating that Romney would
approve the appropriation passed
by the Legislature, University ad-
ministrat ors began planning ad-
justment; to bring the budget into
line with the $51.3 million alloca-
tion. The adjustments, again:
made after consultation with the
deans, took two forms: an in-
crease in tuition rates, which
raised estimated net fee revenue
from $15.7 million to $17.4 mil-
lion, and further reductions in
proposed expenditures.
The reductions hit a number of
different areas. These include:
faculty salary increases, which
were reduced to $3.8 million from
the $4.5 million projected last
October; provisions for higher en-
rollment, which dropped from a
planned $6.8 million to $5.4 mil-
lion; and books and library service,
down from 6S58,000 to $446,000.
This final revision left the Uni-
versity with a general funds bud-
get $10.4 million higher than last
year, the state appropriation rep-
resenting a $716 million increase
and the combmation of higher tu-
ition and larger enrollment con-
tributing an extra $3.16 million.
Signs Bill
Romney signt the higher edu-
cation bill on July 8, making $51.3
million the official te appro-
priation for th Univ y's 1965-66
general funds bunU The Re-
gents met the follo day, and
by a 5-2 vote approve he budget
with the administration's adjust-
ments intact.
At the same time, the Regents
adopted a $4.75 million mental
health activities budget, a part of
the auxiliary activities fund. The
expendable restricted fund and the
rest of the auxiliary activities fund1

had been approved at the June 18
Regents meeting because they did
not have to await action on state
The expendable restricted fund
is primarily concerned with re-
search. Its greatest source of reve-
nue is the federal government,
which is expected to contribute $48
million for 1965-66. Gifts, grants,
revenues from departmental ac-
tivities and investment incomes,
should bring the expendable re-
stricted fund to a total of $58.8,
million---$5.5 million higher than
last year.

Speaker Ban Rule
Protested at OSU
Ohio State University was the scene, during the late spring and
summer, of one of the most prominent instances of student activism
at a major university.
The controversy started with debate, evolved into demonstration
and finally, into a last minute showdown in which a banned speaker
declined to speak as scheduled.
Controversy Begins
The controversy began last April 21 when Ohio State Universit

Self-supporting or revenue-pro-
ducing activities are included in
the auxiliary activities fund. Uni-
versity Hospital ($18.6 million)
and student residences ($9.2 mil-
lion) are its two largest compon-
ents. Also included are the Michi-
gan League, the Michigan Union,
North Campus Commons, intercol-
legiate athletics, University Press,
student publications, and parking
and airport facilities. This year's
$39.4 million auxiliary activities
fund marks a $4.3 million increase
over last year.

Vice-President John Corbally Jr.
which had invited Marxist speaker
OSU campus that in all prob-
ability the speech would not be
permitted, under the OSU speak-
er's ban rules.
The speakers rules, passed by
the university's Board of Trus-
tees 14 years ago, forbid cam-
pus speakers to speak on any-
thing which is not in the "best
overall interests of the university."
The OSU administration contend-
ed that if Aptheker appeared on
campus, it would be in violation
of the speakers rule.
Shortly after Corbally announc-
ed the administration position on
Aptheker's prospetive appearance,
a student group known as the
Free Speech Front was fbrmed to
protest the decision in the name
of academic freedomd
A series of rallies and demon-
strations, coupled with meetings
of FSF leaders and administra-
tion officials caused the admin-
istration to create a faculty study
group to evaluate the worth of
the rule.
The FSF considered the pro-
posal to be a delaying tactic to
avoid any serious confrontation
on thesubject. It was rejected
and demonstrations continued.
Displeased at the way the battle
was going, FSF decided to ask
Aptheker to speak in defiance of
the ban.
Both sides resolved to stand
Aptheker made the appearance
on campus but an alleged attempt
on his life forced him to make a
brief non-speaking appearance on
May 21 in OSU's University Hall.
Doesn't Speak
After the appearance on the
stage, Aptheker was then escorted
by a large nunmber of FSF mem-
bers and campus police out the
front entrance. He entered a wait-
ing automobile and left immedi-
No action was taken by the
administration to punish FSF
leaders or members.,
On May 24 FSF held a meet-
ing to decide on future plans and
evaluate recent happenings. They
decided to abandon any plans to
ask Aptheker to speak again on
the OSU campus that term.
FSF also considered forming a
student protest union similar to
the Free Students Union which
took over the functions of the
Free Speech Movement at Berke-
ley. It would function as a col-
lective bargaining unit and a
liaison between administration
and students.
At the July meeting of the
OSU Board of Trustees it was
decided to retain the speakers rules
despite an eloquent speech deliv-
ered at the meeting by OSU Presi-
dent Novice G. Fawcett urging
that the rules be abolished.
Ignore Opinions
It was pointed out that the trus-
tees, in their decision, had ignored
the opinion of students, faculty
and administration, in addition to
the strong opposition of many
members of the Ohio state legis-
FSF then organized a march to

Columbus which was conducted
in 'an orderly fashion. FSF lead-
ers met with members of the leg-
islature and were assured that a
bill had been introduced in the
senate supporting the aims of the
FSF. However, no legislation has
been considered as yet to overrule
the trustees' decision.

Transfer Unit

New directions in the natural
resources school appeared to be
taking shape last May when the
Regents approved the transfer of
the landscaped architecture de-
partment from the architecture
college to the natural resources
Vice-President for Academic Af-'
fairs Roger W. Heyns, in recom-
mending the transfer, noted the
increasing emphasis in the Uni-
versity on urban and regional de-
velopment and planning.
The transfer seems to indicat
that this new total planning cony

Apparently the transfer of land
scape architecture will strengthen
the involvement of the natural
resources school in such planning
Prof. Walter Chambers, head of
the landscape architecture de-
partment, explained that the trend
in landscape architecture started
over a hundred years ago.
Chambers said that the depart-
ment would not sever ties with
the architecture college and a
planning department which is an-
ticipated there. The interrelation-
ship of the fields necessitates a
constant collaboration of the ar-
chitecture college and the natural
resources school, he explained.
Spurr predicted that the trans-
fer would increase the enrollment
in the natural resources school not
only through transfer students
from the architecture college, but
also through an expanded pro-
gram in regional planning and
outdoor recreation area planning.
