Despite many offerings from some of the choicest colleges and
'universities in the country to faculty members in nearly every
department and school of the University, there were a surprisingly
small number of acceptances.
Vice-President for Academic Affairs Roger W. Heyns said that
the low number of resignations was principally because "until re-
cently, the faculty had been optimistic about next year's budget. . .
but the optimism has faded in the list 10 days."
May Harm Quality
Ie expressed confidence that the University will be able to
attract and keep a good faculty, "although the University has been
cutting back for a number of years. This can't help but mean that
some education is not of the proper quality.
"There are retirements without replacements, and although
there are 2,500 more students now than there were seven years ago,
there are actually fewer faculty members," he said.
The fears which Heyns expressed over the possibiilty of a
decline in the University because of a (numerically) inadequate

faculty were shared by several department heads.
They were concerned because they were unable this year to
hire as many faculty members as they feel were necessary for their
Elimination of Sections
In some instances, it has been necessary to eliminate recita-
tion sections and instead substitute large lecture sections for intro-
ductory and intermediate courses.
Heyns said he feels the University is great and has a great
tradition. "but if we continue not to get support, as we did in
the past, that tradition may not continue."
The following changes in faculty for the coming academic year
were reported by deans of University schools and colleges:
The following faculty appointments and leaves were reported

Small Re-Entry Angle
Causes Capsule Skid
Director Uncertain about Future
Of Three-Orbit Mercury Flights
CAPE 'CANAVERAL (/P) - Astronaut Malcolm Scott Carpenter
successfully orbited the earth three times yesterday, but overshot
his landing area by 250 miles and had to be rescued by jet helicopter.
For a fearful 35 minutes, while he was out of radio contact with
the world, it appeared the space operation might be on the verge of
a disaster, but the Navy Lieutenant Commander was soon discovered
serene and well on a life raft, his Aurora 7 space ship floating nearby.
At a post launch news conference the Project Mercury Operations
Director, Walter C. Williams, said the overshoot resulted because the
spaceship was not in a proper attitude when the braking rockets fired.
Williams said it came in at a much shallower angle than planned
and instead of being tilted at an angle of 34 degrees to the horizon
was actually inclined between 24 and 26 degrees. This, he said, caused
*it, in effect to skid along at a less
steep re-entry angle.
Project Mercury Director Rob-
ert Gilruth said it was not certain
whether another three-orbit mis-
sion will be planned like those of
John II. Glenn, Jr., and Carpenter.
He said five and seven-orbit
flights are under consideration,
but added these might be skipped
in favor of jumping to the 18 or-
bit flights, which will provide an
entire day of data on a man in
Gilruth said no definite deci-
sions can be made on the next

data has been reduced.

Biggest Increases

The Regents have unanimously approved a new tuition
schedule which will result in increased tuition fees for most
University students next fall.
Fee boosts will be greatest for out-of-state students, and
for the first time, graduates and upperclassmen will pay high-
er tuition than freshmen and sophomores. Music school fees

PROPOSED CHANGES-This artist's conception depicts the Union grill as it will look in Septem-
ber, according to revision plans approved last night by the Union Board of Directors. The new
booths, lighting and decor will provide greater privacy and a more agreeable atmosphere. This will
be the view through the North windows of the room.
Board Passes MUG Alterations

A number of major changes in
the appearance and atmosphere of
the Michigan Union Grill were
approved last night by the Union
Board of Directors.
Work will begin during the sum-
mer on the $33,000 project design-
ed to "break up the mass area"
of the grill and to provide "a more
intimate and private atmosphere,"
according to Union President
Robert Finke, '63.
The atmosphere sought will be

by Robert Ross, '63, commends
the stand taken by President
Hatcher and the Board of Regents

Work on the grill should be
completed about September 15. Ac-

begin during the present semester.
The changes in the MUG are
the first in a series, "to occur as
quickly as possible,' that will lead
to major revisions to improve the
character of the ground floor Un-
ion facilities, Finke said.
In altering present facilities, the
Union will be guided by a concept
of "providing social and recrea-
tional settings to bridge the gap
between the non-academic and
academic segments of the Univer-

The new tuition schedule, fin-
alized yesterday, provides for:
-A $250 increase in out-of-
state graduate tuition, raising it
to $1,000 a year.
-A $70 boost for in-state grad-
uates, to $350.
-A $210 hike in out-of-state
upperclassmen fees, to $960.
-A $30 hike for in-state up-
perclassmen, to $310.
-A $150 increase for out-of-
state freshman and sophomore
tuition, to $900.
-No change in in-state fresh-
man-sophomore fees, which will
remain at $280.
-In the Music School, tuition
cuts of $160 to instate freshmen
and sophomores, $10 to out-of-
state freshmen and sophomores,
and $130 to in-state upperclass-
men; and a $50 fee increase to
out-of-state students.
- -Among the various profession-
al schools, increases ranging from
$220-$350 for out-of-state stu-
dents, and from $60-$130 for in-
state students.
-A $40 boost in out-of-state
nursing students' fees, to $160.
-A $10 boost for in-state'
nurses, to $80.
Add $2 Million
University President Harlan
Hatcher said that the fee hike,
which will add $2 million to the
University budget, was necessitat-
ed by the state financial deadlock,
and the Legislature's failure to
agree on a solution for it.
"Since the end of the year ap-
proaches and it now appears that
there will not be an early clarifi-
cation of the state income situa-
tion, the Regents were polled and
their authorization followed,"
President Hatcher commented.
Unclear Effect
The effect of the tuition boost
on the University's appropriation
from the Legislature is not yet
clear. The Senate Appropriations
Committee is presently consider-
ing a plan to boost the University's
appropriation if such a boost is
matched dollar-for-dollar with a
tuition hike.
Sen. Elmer R: Porter (R-Bliss-
field) predicted that the Univer-!
sity's fee hike would have some
effect on the amount of the ap-
propriation, but added, "I can't
estimate it in dollars and cents."

In an hour long presentation of the "best worst poetry ever
written," members of the John Barton Wolgamot Society last night
dead-panned their way through poems which are "beyond the dis-
tinction of failures."
Prof. X. J. Kennedy of the English department and Mrs. Dorothy
Kennedy sang a poem written by unknown temperance poet Katy
V. Hall. Called "The Old Filthy Beer Pail," the poem was chanted
to the tune of "The Old Oaken Bucket" and told the story of a
child living in the anguish of a "Sodom -of sin"-Chicago.
Keith Waldrop introduced a poem by Alfred Austin, a poet
laureate of England, saying that he became poet laureate "because
no one else applied." He read two of Austin's lines: "It fell upon
his hand/ In warm, wet slop."
