U' Graduate Expenses Hig)h

It costs more to get a doctorate at the University than at other
large graduate schools.
In-state students here pay more than in-state students do at
other state supported universities. Out-of-state students here pay
more than students do at major private universities, a Graduate
Student Council ;report maintains.
GSC has been studying cost problems facing graduate students
in light of last semester's tuition increases which were especially
high in graduate departments. Last week the final report was
submitted to the council.
Compares Costs
The report compares costs at the University with costs at the
University of Chicago, Columbia University, Harvard University,
Princeton University, the University of Southern California, and
Yale University (private schools), and the Universities of Califor-
nia, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Ohio State University
(state-supported schools).
Graduate students can take four-year, six-year, or eight-year
programs at most of these universities.
,Out-of-state University students pay a total of $3830, $5745,
or $6640 depending on the program. Students at the private uni-

versities mentioned in the report pay on the average $3734, $4403,
or $4705 for similar programs. University costs, especially in the
longer programs, are much higher.
In-state University students pay a total of $1304, $2010, or
$2320. In-state students at other state-supported universities pay
on the average $809, $1195, or $1229. University costs are again
much higher, the report states.
Out-of-state students here pay more than out-of-state students
at other state-supported institutions.
The report explains that "one reason why the University has
these significantly higher fees is the fact that tuition is drastically
reduced when the thesis is being written at these other schools."
Graduate students writing theses at private universities pay on
the average 26 per cent of full time tuition. At state supported
universities they pay an average of 25 per cent of full time tuition.
83 Per Cent
At the University, graduate students working on theses must
pay 83 per cent of full time tuition.
The committee's report expresses concern over three separate
administrative actions that went into affect last semester that
further increased graduate costs: the tuition increase, which the
Graduate Executive Board made no effort to inform a student of,

a consolidation of part time student definitions, and the lowering
of the number of hours that constitute a full-time student's load.
The number of hours constituting full time work was lowered
because students were electing fewer hours. The committee con-
cluded that students elected fewer hours because of rising costs
and this lowering makes it a vicious circle: tuition rises, students
have to take less hours because of limited resources, full-time work
is redefined as more students are taking fewer classes and this
causes another rise in expenses.
The committee also investigated the reasons behind the wide
differences in in-state and out-of-state costs. It is not a problem
of cost accounting, the report states, for it costs no more to educate
one type of student over another, but it is a political problem.
"The administration is between a backward Legislature and
an irate student body which may upset the Legislature even more.
We are faced with the choice of asking tough questions and pub-
licizing our complaints, which may antagonize the Legislature, or
being quiet and hoping that the University can lobby well enough
to make the Legislature more tractable," the report says.
The committee has discussed the problems with officials in
the graduate school as well as University administrators.

Vice President for Academic Affairs Roger W. Heyns replied
in a private letter that "the University has on many occasions in-
dicated its firm commitment to keeping fees and tuition as low
as possible, and we regret that they are now as high as they are.
"The University has been almost completely dependent upon
fee income for salary increases in recent years, and it is impossible
at this time for us to contemplate reducing fees...
"I recognize that this answer is not the one you desired, but
I assure you that your problem has received careful attention from
the Graduate Executive Board, the Fees Committee of the Uni-
versity, and from me.
Further Action
The report concludes that further action should be a study of
the 1958 Russell Report (of Michigan higher education) to deter-
mine the philosophy behind present cost accounting methods, a
close watch of the Legislature, an investigation of the areas in
which graduate students can exercise power, some thought as to
how the University can become fiscally independent of the Legis-
lature and further comparisons of University costs with other
One GSC member in commenting on the future action said,
"I favor raising hell."

Democrats Hit Con-Con Plan

The supporters of Michigan's proposed new constitution have
put themselves in the position of backing things they don't really
believe in, two Democratic leaders charged yesterday.
New State Chairman Zolton Ferency and Prof. Gerhard Weinberg
of the history department, Ann Arbor Denocratic chairman, called
for a "real-life, practical appraisal" of the con-con proposal.
Prof. Weinberg told the Democrats attending a regional leader-

ship conference that "we have

expects Collins to continue party
work, but did not specify any po

Despite high morale, the party

regular, year-round party telecast
which would replace various other
campaign devices.
"This way we could present our
side of the issues directly," he
commented, criticizing the state's
newspapers for pro-con-con bias
Ferency claimed that the papers
-particularly the Detroit ones-
had already made up their minds
and were refusing to hear anti-
con-con arguments.

which states that recognized stu-
dent associations "may invite and

They went on to view the ap-
propriations clauses of the pro-
posed document - especially as
they pertain to educationalyap-
Ferency attacked the passage
'- which asserts that an appropria-
e tion "is not a mandate to spend,"
y and requires that previously-ap-
-proved appropriations be cut if
- taxes fail to yield the expected in-
come. "If you honestly believe in
e a balanced budget, this is good
n language-but what does it mean
e in terms of practical application
f to government?"
What it means, Ferency assert-
ed, is the various state agencies
will have to curtail their services
e -to the detriment of the people
k they serve-and always operate in
a the shadow of a possible appropri-
Sations cut. Supplemental appro-
-priations, which now can be
s quietly handed out, would violate
- the new constitution, he said.
s e Possible Shortage
He added that the revenue
- shortage which would lead to ap-
propriations cuts is very possible.
r' "Appropriating is preparing the
r government to provide services 15-
18 months in advance of when
s they will be provided. But there is
no possible way to predict reve-
nues precisely 18 months ahead."
Prof. Weinberg pointed out an
implication of the appropriations
provisions for higher education.
During the 1959 "Cash Crisis,"
the Regents had to borrow money
to pay salaries. The local banks
were willing to make such loans,
because they knew the University
appropriation had already been
fixed.and would eventually come,
he said.
"But under the new constitu-
tion, there would be no fixed ap-
propriation-it could be changed
sduring the year. No bank in its
right mind would loan them
money under such circumstances.''
The Democrats' strongest scorn
was reserved for the legislative ap-
portionment provisions. Ferency,
considering the proposed bipar-
tisan apportionment commission,
asked. "do you believe that 50
per -cent of the commission should
represent 8 per cent of the state
-as it would-and the other 50
per cent represent the remaining
92 per cent?"
He also said that the provision
requiring a deadlocked apportion-
ment commission to submit its
dispute to the state supreme court
is not a workable solution.
1 Both speakers rapped the for-
mula by which the commission is
supposed to determine apportion-
ment. Prof. Weinberg commented,
"The state isn't stationary in pop-
ulation. The new apportionment
formula, applied over a period of
years, will be distorted as popula-
tion shifts continue."
Ferency accused Republicans of
"hypocrisy" with respect to the
circuit judge provisions. Prof.
Weinberg added that Sen. Stanley

HOUGHTON - The Board of
Control of Michigan College of
Mining and Technology recently
adopted a policy on speakers in-
vited to campus by student groups
which is almost identical to that
which was previously proposed by
the Michigan Co-ordinating Coun-
cil for Public Higher Education.
The policy provides that the
speaker must not urge action
which is prohibited by the pub-
lished rules of the college, orE
which goes against either Mich-
igan or federal law.
It also places the responsibility
on the student group to inform
the speaker of these prohibitions.
Only Chartered Groups
Only student groups, chartered
by the dean of students as campus
organizations (as specified by cri-
teria of recognition) may invite
speakers to the campus.
The organization which does

rangements including the filing of

states. The form in question re-
quires that the organization show
the time and place of the meeting,
the speaker and his subject.
Where the proposed subject is
controversial, it is suggested that
the technique of fair debate be-
tween speakers with dissimilar
views should be encouraged.

only to see it vetoed by former

This time, Guzowski wants to
