Calls for appropriation cuts if school
fail to discipline disruptive students
The State House of Representatives in a resolution ap-
proved yesterday warned administrators of state-supported
colleges and universities to "maintain order" on their campus
or face cuts in their annual appropriations.
The resolution, which passed the chamber 75-22 after
an hour's debate, was generally regarded as a "statement of
intent" rather than a prelude to more specific legislative
action. It makes no provision for immediate implementation
of the threatened' cuts, nor' --._

does it bind the House to take I
student disorders into consid-
eration when passing futureAC LU
appropriations bills.
The resolution does not specify jitaitt ne w
the kinds of activities it considers
"disorderly," although it does re-
fer to "daily occurrences on the
campuses of the colleges and uni-
versities throughout the United +.oposals

Final decision can only be made by the new Board which

Vice President for Academic Af-
fairs Allan F. Smith said it was
important that the federal govern-
ment increase subsidies to uni-

to graduate schools because "state

President Robben W. Fleming ex-
"Unless the University receives
the additional funds from the
federal government there will be
no allowance for the development
of new programs."
The AAU noted that the lack
of new sources of funds would
lead to serious deterioration of
higher education. Reduced op-
portunities for the diadvantaged,
less research and facilities would
cause the "stifling of higher edu-
cation as a vital creative, produc-
tive force in American life."
Fleming suggested that gradu-
ate level programs are national in
character and therefore should
be supported by the federal gov-
ernment. "Congress should realize
that graduate schools should be'
funded at a national level because
their students come from a
national pool," said Fleming.
