The Regents yesterday took a hardline stand against
the creation of a University bookstore, defeating both a pro-a
posal sponsored by Student Government Council and a sub-
stitute plan sponsored by the administration.
The SGC proposal-which called for the creation of a
bookstore financed by approximately $250,000 from a fee
assessment and by contributions-was unanimously defeated.
A motion to support the plan submitted by the adminis-
tration also failed as the Regents .deadlocked, 4-4. Under the

The Regents yesterday voted to maintain current tuition
levels for the 1969-70 fiscal year and approved a record $111,-
201,338 general fund budget.
The decision caie only hours after the State Legislature
early yesterday morning passed the higher education appro-
priations bill which included a $67,372,392 net allocation for
the University.
The Regental action on tuition was the first time in three
years that student fees were not increased.
Total University expenditures had been tentatively set at
$113,384,582 and the administration was forced to make a ser-

Not all academic divisions will
be forced to make cuts, however.
The social work school, for ex-

to hire three additional faculty
members for the coming year and
Smith has told the school that in-
creased funds will be available.
An additional $300,000 will be
raised as a result of a uniform ap-

Regents yesterday. Those apply-

now be charged $15. In the past,
this fee has varied depending on

was applying.

The $111,201,338 general, fund
budget includes money from stu-

the expendable restricted fund

review of
dorm rules
The Regents yesterday voted
that current dormitory policies on
curfews and visitation by mem-
bers of the opposite sex "be con-
tinued and enforced" but also
slated an intensive review of the
question for the fall.
Visitation rules are presently
set by the.student governments of
the individual housing units. Cur-
fews exist only for women under
21 who do not receive parental
The decision to study the func-
tioning of the rules came as sev-
eral Regents cited complaints they
had received concerning condi-
tions in the dormitories.
"I don't see how it's possible to
have any, enforcement of the
rules," said Regent Paul Goebel.
Goebel said the present policy
stipulates that visitation rules
must include "meticulous safe-
guards for the rights of minori-
ties," but claimed there are cases
of women who complain room-
mates are inviting visitors in "all
the time."

bel was the only Regent opposed
to the policy when it was first
adopted in January, 1968.
"I'm beginning to w o n d e r

Newell which included results of

The poll, conducted by the Uni-
versity's Survey Research Center,
shows that both male and female
residents overwhelmingly support
the present policy.
Most male students and staff
said they thought the parental
permission requirement for wo-

Female students were evenly split
on the subject, while women staff
members favored this requirement.

expert testimony or "written docu-
mentary evidence to substantiate
the health hazards."
"The resolution was dealt with
late in the evening and I for one
was not entirely clear about the
final motion passed," he explains.
"The enforceability is uncertain."
If council does reconsider the
amendment, Cappaert will "move
to table the measure pending an
administrative report as to the de-
sireability of such a resolution."

Both Wayne State University
and Michigan State University
were forced to raise their tuition
yesterday as a result of cuts in
their appropriations requests by
the State Legislature.
At Wayne State, tuition for in-
state undergraduate students went
up to $525 per year, a $114 in-
crease from last year. Graduate
students must pay $630, an in-
crease of $150.

One credit for in-state under-
graduate students costs $13; a
graduate credit costs $31.
Credit assessments for out-of-
state students were not available
last night.
Eliot G. Ballard, assistant to
acting university president Walter'
Adams, yesterday said the new fee
assessment would mean an in-
crease on the average of only $2.01,
for each in-state student. The
