LANSING-Maneuvering over taxation began in earnest in the
Senate last night, with a moderate Republican and Democratic coali-
tion dedicated to a state income tax winning the first minor skirmish.
The moderates' leader, Sen. Stanley Thayor of Ann Arbor, has
promised that the coalition has sufficient yotes to pass the tax, al-
though the only voting done last night was on procedural matters,
leaving the issue somewhat up in the air.
At stake was whether the Senate would discharge the anti-income
tax Taxation Committee and bring to the floor for debate Gov. John
SB. Swainson's tax package. Based
on a flat rate income tax, this set
R e ublicans aproposal will be the coalition's
vehicle for passage of its program.
No Action

tion on the motion to discharge'
last night, postponing a showdown
until Thursday. It was on the vote

On the basis of information
available 'to him, Vice-President
for Academic Affairs and Dean of
the literary college Roger W.
Heyns said yesterday that appar-
ently fewer members of the faculty
will be leaving the University this
year than in past years.
While some faculty members
are currently entertaining offers
from other institutions, Heyns said
he does not know of any final
decisions by professors to leave for
other universities and colleges at'
the end of this year.
"The chance of any great
changes taking place in the faculty
between now and June is remote,"
Heyns said. "Nearly all final deci-
sions by faculty members will be
submitted soon."
Positive Outlook
He attributed much of the posi-
tive outlook of the faculty to op-
timism about chances for in-
creased appropriations from the
state Legislature.
"The faculty is more expectant
and positive now than it was two
or three years ago," Heyns com-
'cented. "There is a general belief
that the University is intent upon
raising salaries. The recommenda-
tion to the legislature made it
clear that this is our highest pri-
ority and methods will be found
to meet it."
Heyns said appropriations prob-
lems generally to have some extent
an adverse affect on faculty
morale. "Anything which suggests
that the University will have
trouble financing itself will have a
negative effect," he said. "But I do
not believe the current situation
(delay in appropriations hearings
and decisions) has had much in-
About Same
Estimating that the size of the
faculty will remain about the same
next year as it is this year, Heyns
commented he is pleased over sev-
eral "excellent appointments" the
University has made for next year.
At the last Regents meeting,
where the appointments of 20 new
faculty members were announced,
University Executive Vice-Presi-
dent Marvin L. Niehuss com-
mented that "for the first time in
many months," no faculty mem-
bers above the rank of instructor
were leaving the institution.
The appointments included Har-
old J. Magnuson of the United
States Public Health Service as
director of the industrial health
institute and Prof. Otis D. Dun-
can of the University of Chicago
and Prof. Helen Gay of the Car-
negie Institute as professors of so-

Rethink New-
A schedule for implementation,I
possible changes in the length oft
class hours and proposed innova-
tions in the examination schedule
were the main features in a pro-I
gress report on year-round-opera-
tions considered yesterday byt
deans of University schools and
Prof. Stephen Spurr of the natu-
ral resources school, who wrote the;
report after consultation with the
University Senate committees andt
vice-presidents, said Sunday no
final decisions would be made at
the deans' conference. Reactions
to the proposals were discussed
and considered.
According to the report, year-j
round operation of the University
will begin with an integrated sum-
mer session in 1963, a pilot plan
full-year operation in 1964 and
permanent full-scale implementa-
tion in 1965.
Pilot Plan
Prof. Spurr said the pilot plan:
next summer will de-emphasize
the acceleration aspect of the pro-
gram and aim instead at providing
a wider variety of available courses
to upper class and graduate stu-
dents. In addition a small number
of freshmen will be accepted in
the summer session.
"We believe upper class and
graduate students are more an-
xious to speed up and that fresh-
men would rather go at the regu-
lar pace," he said. "For this reason
we are planning to begin accelera-
tion 'from the top down'."
A change in the length of the
class hour is also being considered
to compensate for the shortening
of the term from 16%12 to 15 weeks.
One possibility is the addition of
five minutes to each class period
thus lengthening them by the
same 10 per cent of time which is
lost in dropping a week and a half
from the semester.
The Rutgers University system
of holding two 75-minute class
periods a week instead of three 50-
minute periods is an alternative
proposal. In this case, Prof. Spurr
said, there would probably be two
80-minute periods. However, this
would probably not be feasible for
underclass lectures.
Examination period, currently
10 days long, might be shortened
under full-year operations. One
possibility, Prof. Spurr said, would
be elimination of the examination
period altogether, allowing pro-
fessors to give examinations dur-
ing the last three class periods if
they chose.
A one-week exam session might
also be substituted for the 10-day
period with a three-day reading
break preceding examinations. Ex-
ams might last two instead of
three hours, so that three instead
of two could be given in one day.

Student Fees

Budget Lack
Niehuss Cites Need
For Salary Increases
"It appears now that the Uni-
versity will be forced into a tuition
raise for next year," University,
Executive Vice-President Marvin
L. Niehuss said yesterday.
"If appropriations left the Uni-
versity $2 million short of the
needed $4-5 million increase, the
balance might have to come from
tuition," he said.
"Appropriations from the Legis-
lature could increase by any
amount up to the governor's rec-
ommendation," Niehuss said. Gov.
John B. Swainson has asked for 1
$2.5 million increase in the Uni-
versity's appropriations, with
$500,000 earmarked for the Insti-
tute of Science and Technology.
Up To Regents
Niehuss emphasized that the de-
cision of whether or not to raise
tuition will be up to 'the Regents,
as well as questions of how much
to raise and how to split the in-
crease between in-state and out-
of-state students.
There is a possibility that the
Regents will consider tuition at
their April meeting, Niehuss said.
After appropriations from the leg-
islature, student fees are the only
large source of income for the
University's general fund.
Not on Agenda
Regent Irene E. Murphy said
yesterday that tuition has not yet
been placed on the agenda of the
April Regents' meeting. To raise
tuition before the Legislature de-
cides taxes and appropriations
would be to take over the legisla-
ture's basic responsibility for se-
curing public funds, she said.
The Regents stated last October
that they would not decide tuition
until the legislature decided the
University's appropriation this !
spring. The statement indicated
that they might raise tuition to
provide one-third as much added
income as any raise in the state's
In past tuition hikes, in-state
fees have generally gone up less,
proportionately, than those for
out-of-state students. Since May,
1957, in-state tuition has risen 40
per cent to its present $280 a year.
In the same period, tuition for
out-of-state students has climbed
60 per cent to $750 a year.
Need Increase
The University needs a $4-5 mil-
lion increase in revenue this year
for increases in both faculty and
non-faculty salaries, Niehuss said.
He termed a raise in faculty sal-
aries the "number one need of the
University today. This is what you
build around."
Out-of-state tuition is about the
same throughout the Big Ten.
