LANSING .-House Majority
Leader Allison Green (R-Kings-
ton) has taken a' slap at the
University's "high level of out-of-
state student enrollment," opening
a controversy that rages every
year between the University and
the Legislature.
"It is discouraging to learn that
32.9 per cent of all freshmen and
sophomores at the University are
from out-of-state,"-he says.
Rep. William Romano (D-War-
ren) has promised a renewed effort
this year to limit out-of-state en-

rollments to 10 per cent of the
total. The same proposal failed
last year in the House by only
six votes in a real rough-house
Lewis Protests
Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs James A. Lewis protested
yesterday that the University "is
accepting all the Michigan fresh-
men now who 'qualify'-but qual-
ify, of course, is a relative term.
"We realize that the state is
worried. At home legislators have
!constituents pounding on their
backs when students aren't ac-
cepted for college.

"Of course we always try to give
preference to instate students."
Legislature's Duty
Romano has claimed that it is
the Legislature's duty to "see that
the C-plus student in Michigan
gets an opportunity for an edu-
cation ahead of the straight A
student from out-of-state.
Lewis said that it "wasn't all
that simple. Along with selectivity
the University has a low drop-out
rate," which comes from accepting
only "qualified" students.
Lewis pointed out that although
the literary college and the archi-
tecture college 'are filled to capac-

)ut-of -State

ity, most of the other schools are
not up to their admitted capacity.
Cost of Education
Romano has told the Legislature
the cost of educating out-of-state
students at the University is equal
to the total of the entire operating
budgets of Western Michigan Uni-
versity at Kalamazoo, Central
Michigan University at Mt. Pleas-
ant, and Northern Michigan Col-
lege at Marquette.
The percentages of out-of-state
students at Michigan state-sup-
ported colleges are: The Univer-
sity, 31.9 per cent; Michigan Col-
lege of Mining and Technology at

Houghton, 27.8per cent; Michigan
State University, 19.1 per cent;
WMU, 8.9 per cent; NMC, 4.4 per
cent; Wayne State University, 3.4
per cent; Eastern Michigan Uni-
versity at Ypsilanti, 2.5 per cent;
Ferris Institute at Big Rapids, 1.8
per cent; and CMU 1.2 per cent.
Green was optimistic about get-
ting the Legislature to pass some
restriction on out-of-state enroll-
ments, because "we came so close
last year."
Proud of Universities
"We are proud of our universi-
ties and are glad outstaters want
to come to them. We don't advo-

cate eliminating them, but we
the ratio at the University sh
be more reasonable."
Green suggested a tuition
as a means of discouraging out
state applicants, but Sen. St
G. Thayer (R-Ann Arbor) wa
against "creating an Iron Cur
which would seal off the
from its neighbors.
"Such a policy is contrary t
aim of broadening education

The bill now goes back to the
r House Rules Committee, which
could stop further Congressional
action on the measure.
Limited Aid
The House bill originally came
out of the Rules Committee on an
8-7 vote last month. The House
passed the limited aid bill provid-
ing $1.5 billion for construction for
classrooms, laboratories and li-
braries for private and public col-
leges and junior colleges.
House Republicans stipulated
that that their support would be
withdrawn if the Senate added a
federal scholarship program to the
Last Tuesday, after two days of
debate, the Senate approved a
$2.6 billion program of grants and
loans for college scholarships as
wellas for the construction of aca-
demic facilities. The bill was
passed 69-17, just a few hours
after the Pr'esident sent his edu-
cation message to the Capitol. He
requested funds for higher educa-
tion institutions and 4 broad range
of other aids.
McNamara Opposes .
Sen. Patrick V. McNamara (D-
Mich) opposed the measure.
In the course of the Senate de-
bate, Sen. Frank J. Lausche (D-
Ohio) moved to strike out pro-
posed provisions for 212,500 fed-
eral scholarships and to substitute
a stepped-up program of loans to
college students. The amendment
was defeated 50-37.
Lausche opposed grants to
students on two principles. He
maintained the "moral fabric" of
college-age Americans would be
impaired by outright grants not
requiring repayment.
Prestige Schools
He also said that grants made to
student by federal agencies and
not by the colleges themselves
would produce further overcrowd-
ing of "so-called prestige schools"
at the expense of the smaller or
state institutions.
He advocated an expansion of
existing programs of loans to stu-
, dents under the National Defense
Education Act.
The president has three timesr
this year called for Congress to
pass a school aid .measure, but+
Congress has turned a deaf ear
to them.,
The general school aid bill is
still blocked in the House Rules
Committee and Rep. Adam Clay-,
ton Powell (D-NY) has refused to
let his House Education and Labor
Committee draft another one.

Con-Con CO mmittee Sets

Separate constitutional status for all 10 state-supported colleges
and universities was recommended to the constitutional convention by
their education committee during intersession.
If the recommendation is accepted the state will have 10 boards
of control made up of eight members serving eight-year terms govern-
ing higher education in Michigan.
Advice and Consent
Seven of these boards will be appointed by the governor with the
advice and consent of the Michigan Senate. The University, Michigan

members felt that immediate pub-
lic discussion of the report is es-
sential for an understanding of it
and for the guarantee of opti-
mum changes in the OSA.

terpretation of the committee's
purpose and the University's atti-
tude toward non-academic stu-

Faculty control of the Board in
Control of Intercollegiate Athlet-
ics was approved in a bylaw
change at the January Regents
The membership of the Board
was increased from 15 to 17, with
nine members chosen from the
University Senate, the faculty leg-
islative body. The old bylaw pro-
vided for seven Senate members.
Vice-President and Dean of Fac-
ulties Marvin L. Niehuss presented
the Senate Advisory Committee's
proposal to the Regents. He said
the change was not due to any
direct conflict between the facul-
ty and other members of the
Board but rather because "some
faculty felt they should have a
stronger voice" in the affairs of
the Board.
H. O. "Fritz" Crisler, athletic
director, said he had no objection
to the increase in faculty mem-
bership on the Board but that "the
reason for making the change is
unsound." Crisler said that facul-
ty Board members as a group had
never been voted down and that
they had always had a strong
voice in the Board's decisions.
The bylaw changes also lower-
ed the faculty terms from four to
three years. Crisler pointed out,
that this did not give the mem-
bers sufficient time to become as
well acquainted with conference
rules and procedures since most
matters concerned longer range

Insert Names
The education committee also
voted to insert the names of all
ten institutions in the constitution,
changing the name of Northern
Michigan College at Marquette to
Northern Michigan University and
the name of Michigan College of
Mining and Technology at Hough-
ton to Michigan Collegeof Science
and Technology.
The governor would appoint the
boards of Western Michigan Uni-

Central Michigan University at

elected for six-year terms.
Separate Boards
The other schools are governed
by separate boards.

fairs James A. Lewis appointed the
study group last summer after re-
ceiving a report from the facult3
committee urging. wide sweeping
structural and personnel changes
in the OSA.
List Seven Areas
That report listed seven areas
to be investigated and improved.
The study committee was charged
with handling six of them: facul-
ty control and participation, re-
structure, housing arrangements,
reassignment of certain present
personnel, establishment of an or-
derly grievance mechanism for
students, and an explication of the
OSA's relationship with other
University units.
