redicts No


Last year, in the face of only
a small appropriations increase
from the state Legislature and
mounting financial need, the Uni-
versity raised tuition. Some legis-
lators had insisted at that time
that the University had to match
the state's appropriations increase
dollar for dollar through a fee
No Hike
This year, "the University has
clearly indicated to the Legisla-
ture that for the time being, a
boost in student fees is not a pos-
sibility," he added.
But this policy does not com-
mit the University in some future
year when the University might
raise its fees, Vice-President Heyns

He noted that although final
appropriations will not be made
for a little while yet, his office is
working with the deans of the
various schools and colleges and
the department heads in order to
construct a list of priorities for any
increment .the Legislature gives.
This work includes questions
such as whether the University
should add additional members to
the junior faculty, raise pay for
those already on the faculty or a
little of both, he said.
Assess Effect
In discussing last year's tuition
boost, he noted that it is still dif-
ficult to assess its ultimate effect.
The additional cost did not re-
duce the number of out-of-state
applications or students although

some departments have said that
the added cost deterred some grad-
uate students.
The University did appropriate
more general scholarship aid this
year which probably aided many
students hit by the higher fees,
Vice-President Heyns said.
However, "there is no clear cut
evidence" upon which one can
judge its effect, he said.
University President H a r 1 a n
Hatcher recently went before the
Senate Appropriations Committee
and asked for a boost in Romney's
recommended budget. But the ad-
ditional funds, President Hatcher
said, would be for research activi-
ties, not general operations.

These research activities in-
clude the Institute for Science and
Technology for which President
Hatcher seeks an extra $500,000.
IST currently receives approxi-
mately $900,000 from the state.
Graduate Education
He is also seeking funds for the
expansion of graduate education.
Because of the bleak prospects
for a substantial boost in last
year's operating budget, the Uni-
versity has so far put aside tem-
porarily plans for beginning the
transition to full-year operation.
The added funds were to have
been used to finance added faculty
salaries and increased summer
course offerings and programs.

Not'T Interfere
Students To Halt Demonstrations;
Aroner Raps President for Silence
Asserting that "we do not believe the University should
attempt to dictate legislation to the city of Ann Arbor," Uni-
versity President, Harlan Hatcher last night expressed "sym-
pathy" but not open support for efforts of the Human Rela-
tions Board to secure fair housing legislation.
"The policy of the University on fair housing has always
been clear and definitive," he said, "and I find it difficult to
understand how it could be misinterpreted.
The Regents, the faculty and the administration have
worked constructively through the years to eliminate dis-
crimination in any form and'

FAIR HOUSING PICKETERS-Students picketed the Adminis-
tration Bldg. yesterday demanding President Harlan Hatcher's
support for local fair housing legislation. The group braved sub-
zero temperatures to air their views.
HRIJ Picketing Activity,
May Face SGC Censure
The Human Relations Board, which staged picketing yesterday
to urge University President Harlan Hatcher's support for Ann Arbor
fair housing legislation, faces possible censure by Student Govern-
ment Council for its action.
The Human Relations Board is one of eight boards responsible
to Council, whose executive committee will meet early next week to
'consider the legality of the picket-

t ;,.'

To Consider
Fee Request
The Regents will hear a request
for a new fee classification for
University students of more than
65 years of age at their meeting
at 2:30 p.m. today in the Re-
gent's Rm., Administration Bldg.
The proposal asks that retired
people wishing to attend the Uni-
versity be charged only half the
normal tuition. The plan is part
of the program offered by the
Adult Education Center.

ing action.
Executive board members are
SGC President Steven Stockmey-
er, '63; Executive Vice-President
Thomas Brown, '63; Administra-
tive Vice-President Charles Barn-
ellI, '63BAd, and Treasurer Russell
Epker, '64.
Board's Jurisdiction
In calling the meeting, Stock-
meyer. is acting in concurrence
with provisions which state that
"any complete action falling but--
side the jurisdiction of the HRB
will be subject, to review by the
executive committee of SGC."
He also noted that it was "un-
fortunate that in taking such a
drastic step, the HRB did not come
to the Council before actng."
HRB, according to the delinea-
tion of its duties and powers, was
not bound to come before Council
to discuss the picketing decision.
Encourage Relations
However, the committee's pur-
pose as outlined by its charge
from SGC is to work "in a positive
manner to encourage betterhu
mannrelations in the University
community and the Ann Arbor
Stockmeyer said the executive
committee might question the
"positive" effects of picketing. He
indicated he did not think the
executive committee would take
independent action in the case,
but would submit any recommen-
dations to the whole Council.
Brown said he would support

HRB chairman David Aroner,
'64, said that yesterday's picket-
ing of the Administration Bldg.
and President Hatcher's home
would not be resumed in view of
the success of the demonstration..
He felt the success lay in their
"bringing to public attention the
refusal of the President and other
administrative officials to openly
endorse fair housing legislation."
Ready To Talk
Aroner said the HRB stood ready
to meet with President Hatcher at
any time for further discussion of
the issue.
Aroner 'eiterated his belief that
the University has a responsibility
to its students to make public its
commitments on vital issues af-
fecting the community.
"By saying that the University
cannot take a position on legisla-
tion in Ann Arbor, President
Hatcher has in effect said that
the University has no public in-
terest in fair housing legislation
in Ann Arbor," Aroner said.
"I would also like to take strong
exception to President Hatcher's
statement that the University's
policy on fair housing has always
been 'clear and definitive.' To my
knowledge neither the President
nor the University has made pub-
lic any policy on fair housing."
"Further, I believe the President
has never even publicly endorsed
Regents Bylaw 2.14," he said.
Future Effect
As to the possible effect of an
endorsement, Democratic City
Council member Lynn W. Eley
commented that "I don't think a
