"The student-faculty ratio has
kept pace with enrollment in-
creases over the past few years,"
said. Allan F. Smith, vice-presi-
dent for student affairs yesterday,
"but a large number of adjust-
ments in departmental programs
will be necessary to maintain the
ratio this year."
Smith said a number of adjust-
ments must be made at all levels
if the University musti operate
within Gov. Romney's $62 million
request for next year. He said the
University has encountered, and
effectively handled, similar prob-
lems for the past ten years. Stu-
dent-faculty ratios have averaged
13-1 students to faculty.
"Last year for example," Smith
said, "even with the $7.7 million
discrepancy between what the gov-
ernor requested and our final ap-
propriation, we ended up fairly
well, with the kind of adjustments
we could make in our programs.
We managed to raise faculty sala-
ries an average of six per cent.

A vote of over 5.000 had been
hoped for by the sponsors of the
referendum. The vote in a typical
referendum at MSU varies be-
tween 6,000 and 9,000 of the Uni-
versity's 35,000 students.
Students were asked four mul-
tiple choice questions on how the
draft should operate, what ,infor-
mation MSU should release to lo-
cal boards, student deferments,
and exemptions for members of
the Peace Corps, VISTA, and the
National Teacher Corps. In addi-
tion they were asked to comment,
yes or.no, on a draft for women.
The referendum also focused on
how students are personally af-
fected by the draft. Students were
asked to respond yes or no to such
questions as "Has the present
draft law caused you to alter the
direction or timing of your career
plans?" and "Would you actively
suport a movement to alter the
present draft law?"
ARTHUR MILLER spoke yesterday before a packed audience in Rackham Lecture Hall. He crit-

The NSA resolution congratu-
lated the student group for ad-

partially financed by the CIA.
However, it went on to condemn
the former officers of the NSA
and similar organizations for ac-

criticized the CIA itself for insti-
gating the relationship.
Roger Leed, '67, who introduced
the resolution, is himself a former
employee of the NSA.
Leed stressed the damaging in-
fluence of this affair on the gov-
ernment itself. He said students
