"The Michigan Union is in a
state of change - of defining its
goals, of making clearer its posi-
tion in the University community,"
according to Union President Rob-
ert Finke, '63.
In a lengthy discussion yester-
day, Finke's comments and re-
changes in the Micig n Unio
Grill this summer to the philoso-
phy and long-range plans of the
"he Union is principally a stu-
dent canter. Its primary obliga-
tion Is to the students," he said.
Test Case
The changes in the MUG's at-
mosphere will provide a test
case" whose results may help
guide future planning for the Un-
ion, he said.
Finke urged that stpdents use
and evaluate the new facilities.
The best recourse of "those who
are most concerned that a change
occur. in the ground-floor facility
of the Union is to use it them-
selves," he said.
With the appearance of a "coin-
letely nlew MUG" may come new
rules of conduct to "determine the
standards we wish to uphold,"
IFinke redicted. Regulations con-
cerning conduct and use of the
MUG for studying may be made
as they become necessary, he said.
May Change Pool
Other plans now under consider-
ation w'ould convert the present
swimming pool -area to either a
conference room or to a "bag-
lunch and study room." The plan-
ners are looking toward a future
as a conference center, attracting
state and national groups, Finke
"I it evolves that the confer-
en'ce center is in immediate sight,"
the study room, with vending fa-
cilities, will probably be provided.
In any case, the UItion may con-
Fstruct conference facilities in a
new South wing within the next

A partial basis for the dif-
ferential tuition rates forj frs-
and seniors and graduate stu-
dents is a cost study of Uni-
yersity operations, made this
year, University President Har-
lan H. Hatcher revealed Thurs-
day when he announced the .fee
"This study provides a new
basis on which to determine
that part of the cost to be borne
by each level of student--the
and the graduateh professional,
those whose homes are in Mich-
igan, and those who live out of
state," President Hatcher ex-
plained. d
-Unique Tuition Policy
The University thus became
the first state-supported college
or university to adopt this tui-
tion policy. There is at least
one private institution that
charges - such differential fees.
The intensive University-con-
ducted cost stud of its 1960-6 1
operations reduced the matter
to a group of tables, three of
which are immediately relevant
to the tuition plan.
The tables concern full-time
students only. The survey def-

inition of full-time students is

mester hours for a full year;
Hours Considered
2) A full-time masters stu-
dent takes 12 hours each semes-
ter or 24 semester hours during
the September-June academic
3)~ A full-time equivalent
Ph .D. student takes eight hours
each semester or 16 hours the
academic year; andgdut r
graduate-professional student is
considered individually. This is
based on the fact that there are
not very many candidates for
degrees in these schools who
are not full-time students.
Semester Hours
The first oX the survey's
tables is concerned with semes-
ter hours elected by class level,
approximate instructional costs
and amount paid by students.
Freshmen and sophomores,
electing 229,575 semester hours
last year at a total cost of $5,-
732,987, paid $3,204,462.
Juniors and seniors elected
237,937 semester hours, for a
total cost- of $10,694,449. To
this they contributed $3,785,903.

Graduate and graduate pro-
051 semeste hours,teir duca-
which they paid $4,203,274. fr
The second survey table broke
these figures down to average
cost per semester hour by class
level and average amount paid.
Costs for freshmen and soph-
omores again were at the bot-
tom of the list with these stu-
dents paying $13.96 out of a
total cost of $24.97 per hour.
Aevrage Full-Time Cost
the average cost per fultm
year for one student from Sep-
tember 1960 to June 1961.
The total cost for freshmen
and sophomores was $774 with
$443 of this being paid by stu-
dents. For juniors and seniors
the figure was again almost
doubled, totalling $1393, with
the students contributing $493
towards this.
Quadrupled Costs
Graduate and graduate-pro-
fessional total costs were almost
four times those of the fresh-
man-sophomore group, being
$2980; yet the average amount
paid by the student was only

plus the allocations for indirect
supporting services, were then
totalled to give the total in-
structional costs by level.

For Session
The University summer session
is traditionally a time for relaxed
intellectual endea ors and a vast
array of cultural and academic
programs and Institutes.
Even if the piroposed year-round
operation goes into effect as

pus facilities are more intensively
utilized, the 1962 summer session
will continue to offer a wide va-
riety of symposia and educational
'U. S. Youth' Lectures
Perhaps the highlight of this
aspect of summer school is a six-
week lecture series on American

Comupromise Levy Package To Add
$84 Million iii New State Revenues
An $84 million "nuisance tax" package which came out of
a Republican House caucus yesterday, may well end the taxa-
tion logj am in the Legislature, Rep. Gilbert E. Bursley (R-Ann
Arbor) predicted yesterday.
The new package boosts the original Republican revenue
proposals $28 million in order to satisfy Democratic demands
that any tax proposal bring in at least $70 million in addi-
tional income next year, Rep. Carroll C. Newton (R-Delton),
the assistant majority floor leader, said.
Bursley predicted a vote next Tuesday.
Thle proposed levies will be tied together in an all or
nothing package, Bursley said, in order to prevent cut-backs
by an economy minded Senatej ..
or a gubernatorial veto.~
Substantial Increase
The package, if passed, would
mean a "substantial" increase in
the University appropriation, espe-
cially in light of the legislative
approval caused by Thursday's
announcement of a tuition boost,
Bursley said.
The new taxes include:4
A one cent boost in the beer

lion to be ear marnked forn aid to

Of 'Medicare'
LANSING - Republicans ask-

medical care programs for the
aged have charged Gov. John B.
Swainson and Sen. Patrick Mc-
Namara (D-Mich.) with propos-
ing "the biggest tax grab ever at-
tempted in Michigan."
The GOP leaders said that the
medical care programs outshine
President John F. Kennedy's so-
cial security plan. The present
federal plan, based on the Kerr-
Mills Act of 1960, has been oper-
ating in Michigan since last year.


Michigan batters staged a 15-hit attack off three Western Michi #
gan pitchers yesterday at Ferry Field to gain a 9-2 victory and boost
their chances of being selected for the District Four NCAA Tourney.
A committee will meet Sunday in Ft. Wayne, Ind. to pick the four
teams for the district layoffs. Western is the only atuomatic selection
because it won the Mid-American Conference title. Illinois, Detroit, y
Michigan, and Notre Dame are the top candidates for the three at- 4
""" Delicately Decisive Double
Michigan's chances for the NCAA selection would be further en-
hanced with a double win over Western today at Kalamazoo. Western's
loss yesterday was its second of the season. Ohio State was the only
previous conquerer of the Broncos. Western now has a 15-2 season
record while the Wolverines are 21-11 for the season.
