Controversy on Side
Administration explanation of }
the dorm fee hike has sparked
some controversy on campus,
mainly on one aspect-student V
wages.
Administrators had said that a
March 20 increase in minimum
wage rates for part-time student
employees,= from $1 to $1.25, was
responsible to some extent for
the fee hike. An administrator
said, for instance, that the wage
increase would raise residence hall
operating costs by $80,000..
But Barry Bluestone, '66; Presi-
dent of the University Students
Employes Union, which had long
been asking for such an increase,
said that the wage hike was.only,
a'"minimal financial factor in the
need for a dorm increase..
Bluestone argued further that }
student wages should, in fact, be
raised again because 'the higher

STUDENTS RETURNING to their dorms this Fall will pay $50 more for the privilege than they did
last year, and $85 more than they did two years ago. On June 18, the Regents announced their ap-
proval of the $50 fee hike. But students who signed up-for the quads without knowing about the fee
hike will be given the opportunity to cancel their commitments.

a University budget of $51.2 mil-c
lion, but the appropriation stillE
has to go into conference commit-
tee.
If the conference committeet
does not alter the House andt
Senate's appropriation bill - andt
most observers say the odds arei
strong that they will not-the
University will have been appro-]
priated several million dollars less'
than it requested.
At one point in the House's
handling of the University's bud-1
get request, a hefty tuition hike
h a d appeared especially im-
minent.
After the House Ways and
Means Committee had slashed the
Senate's version of the appropri-
ation for the University by $6.27
million, members of the adminis-
tration reportedly called up legis-
lators to inform them that such a
cut would force an overbearing
tuition hike.
Pressure Tactic
The committee slash was ad-
mittedly a tactic used by the
House to pressure Sen. Garland
Lane (D-Flint) into reporting out
of his powerful Senate Appropri-
ations Committee a number of
bills which had been approved by
the House.
As Rep. Grey (D.-Ypsilanti)
said, the way to hit Lane where
it hurt was to cut the funds made
available under the Senate ap-
propriation to expand the Univer-
sity branch in Flint.
Furthermore, Grey reasoned by

cutting the University budget by
a large sum in addition to over
$300,000 for Flint, the administra-
tion could not afford to juggle
the appropriation, as it is entitled
to do under the state constitu-
tion, in order to get enough
money for Flint.
Theses tactics were attacked by
Democratic party leaders includ-
ing House speaker Joseph Kowal-,
ski (D-Detroit).,
Although Grey and other mem-
bers of the House Appropriation

Committee said that originally
they had intended to restore Uni-
versity's appropriation in confer-
ence regardless of whether Lane
succumbed to pressure, t h e y
changed their tactics and the
slash was restored in a general
orders session.
Later the House formally ap-
proved a University budget of
451.2 including a special passage
endorsing the use of funds for
supporting a freshman class at
Flint in the fall.
