Budget-building legislators yes-
terday served notice to the Uni-
versity and Michigan State Uni-
versity that their financial squab-
bles are proving costly.
Sen. Emil Lockwood (R-St.
Louis), a ranking member of the
Senate Appropriations Committee,
disclosed last night that both in-
stitutions are failing in efforts to
get more funds than Gov.- George
Romney has recommended.
However, both institutions seem-
ed assured of receiving at least the
level of the Romney recommenda-
tions. Influential budget man Rep.

IFC Granted
Full Authority
Over Violations
The Joint Judiciary Committee
has granted the executive com-
mittee of the Interfraternity
Council the permanent authority'
to try its own group violation
cases, Stephen F. Idema, '65, ex-
ecutive vice-president of IFC, an-
nounced last night at an execu-
tive committee meeting.
He commented that the move
was of the utmost importance to
the fraternity system in that it
gave fraternities considerable pow-
er in accepting responsibility in
their own problem areas. ,
The executive council previously
had been trying cases under a
temporary grant of authority from
Joint Judiciary which recently re-
viewed this temporary arrange-
ment and decided that it had op-
erated effectively enough to war-
rant giving this authority to fra-
ternities on a permanent basis.
Had the group decided to deny
the executive committee such ju-
dicial power, authority for try-
ing cases would have reverted
back to Joint Judic, where it has
resided in past years.
The executive committee also
passed a motion recommending a
change in the procedure for in-
spections of fraternity houses for
health and safety hazards. The
action, which would increase the
annual number of inspections
from one to two and make the
first of these unannounced, was
taken after the committee dis-
cussed problems in this area with
Prof. William Joy, director of
environmental health, and Mrs.
Elizabeth Leslie, co-ordinator of
affiliated, associated, and off-
campus housing.

both institutions to surpass these
totals will meet their final defeat
Monday, Lockwood predicted.
On that day the Senate Ap-
propriations Committee will put
the final touches on the two fi-
nancial bills affecting higher edu-
cation. The pending capital outlay
bill for all 10 state-supported uni-
versities totals $27 million. The
operations bill would supply over-
all $131.3 million to the 10 schools.
The University has attempted
to get $50,000 added to fund pre-
liminary . planning for the pro-
posed architecture and design col-
lege building on North Campus.
MSU has solicited even higher
totals reportedly with Romney's
unofficial endorsement in view of
new state surplusses disclosed re-
cently. State has sought at least
$500,000 for a power plant addi-
tion and about $50,000 preliminary
money on a new administrative
building, one senator said.
Support View
A random poll of several ap-
propriations committee members
supported Lockwood's view that
these appeals lave little chance of
going through. He contended that
smaller institutions - such as
Grand Valley State College and
community colleges-have better
student-teacher ratios "and plen-
ty of room for expanding enroll-
Lockwood cited an "impression"
that the "appropriations commit-
tee must start to put the lid on
growing enrollments at MSU and
at the University."
Both institutions have a.sked for
several million dollars to help
fund rising costs caused by en-
rollment increases.
Bickering Causes Trouble
But other senators claimed that
the state's two largest schools are
in danger "because of their con-
stant bickering and competition
for funds."
MSU President John Hannah
lashed out at the University in a
speech Tuesday night. He claimed
that the Legislature is "short-
changing" his institution by not
taking into account the growth of
MSU in the,past five years to al-
most 30,000 students. This growth,
he noted, has almost doubled that
of the University.

University officials have shift-
ed their approach to "quiet but
insistent" attempts to win the ap-
propriation recommended by Rom-
ney for all 10 schools. They are
reportedly "satisfied" with the
prospects of a $44 million opera-
tions grant.
Key leaders in both houses also
evidenced satisfaction-endorsing
both the University's pending
budget and all of Romney's sums.
Favors Romney Totals
One member of the appropria-
tions committeeSen. Arthur Deh-
mel (R-Unionville), said that he
personally favors the totals rec-
ommended by Romney, but that
some minor shifts in their internal
contents may be in order.
Lockwood said that these shifts
would cut at most only minor por-
tions of the University totals. But,
he emphasized, "I am quite certain
that attempts will fail to get
more money than Romney has
The appropriations committee
must report the operations and
capital outlay bills to the floor of
the Senate by Tuesday midnight.
Sees Speedy Handling
The bills will then go to the
House Ways and Means Commit-
tee within 10 days where Eng-
strom has predicted speedy han-
dling. They will then be sent to
the floor of the House for approval
in early May.

visioned potential slashing dan-

Rea said that many freshmen
will begin college with deficits in
their budgets. Last fall 1800 ad-
mitted freshmen applied for Re-
gents' scholarships. Only 464 of
these scholarships were given out
to cover tuition, however.
Scholarships are inducements
for students to attend college but
they do not provide for total ex-
penses, he said. New "package
aids" are being devised to solve
this problem. These are programs
that provide loans and other
funds in addition to any scholar-
ships that a student possesses.

Expansion of the University's Flint senior college exten-
sion into a four-year degree-granting institution-perhaps
by fall, 1965-is now a virtual certainty.
"The Flint Board of Education will give unanimous ap-
proval Wednesday to a four year plan proposed by a six-
man committee of Flint and University officials," Claude
Stout, president of the Flint board, disclosed last night.
"The approval will take the form of an invitation to the
University to expand its operations in Flint," he said. The
plan probably will be presented at the April 17 meeting of the
University Board of Regents
for approval.
University officials say that re-
gental approval at this point
seems "extremely likely." Approval-
is expected by the end of the
school year. This will open the way
for hiring of staff.
They predict that if the approval
comes reasonably soon, the stage
will be set for the Flint University
campus to go on four-year opera-
tion by fall of 1965.
Regent Eugene B. Power of Ann
Arbor said that the board has not
heard the specific blueprint forf -
expansion of the two-year senior
college. However, he indicated a
regental willingness to "expand"
wherever the University may serve
the interests of students in the
state of Michigan."
"The Charles Stewart Mott
Foundation of Flint will probably
be able to assist the four-year col-
lege for the first three years," LEONARD SAIN

lege will probably be obtaining

Coal Miners, Stage Strike
Over Fringe Benefits Policy
PITTSBURGH (MP)-Thousands of soft coal miners remained off
their jobs yesterday in at least five states in contract disputes.
For the most part, the work stoppages by rank-and-file union
members were in protest against fringe benefit provisions in a re-
cently signed national contract.
Officials of the United Mine Workers said the confused patch
pattern of the strikes made it difficult to estimate the number of
aminers on strike. However, it ap-
